About the neighbourhood
Carvoeiro is a traditional Portuguese fishing village that has developed into a popular holiday destination. It has lost little of its original charm, and has a small sandy beach backed by cafes and restaurants and surrounded by colourful sand and limestone cliffs. In and around Carvoeiro are some fine beaches, golf courses, restaurants and well-stocked supermarkets, and the welcoming locals will cater for your every need and help you to get the most out of your holiday. For those not wishing to hire a car, local taxis are relatively cheap, for example to or from Carvoeiro costs just 5-6 euros.

Just a few km south of the Algarve motorway and only 45 minutes from Faro airport, Carvoeiro also lies conveniently close to the town and harbour of Portimao, an excellent shopping centre with attr...

How to get there
Airport: Faro: 50.0 km
The villa is located close to the coast and about 2 km to the west of Carvoeiro, a traditional Portuguese fishing village, about 45 minutes drive west of Faro Airport. There are several car hire firms at the airport (Alamo, Autojardim, Avis, Budget, Hertz, National and others) or, alternatively, you can get a taxi to the villa at a cost of around 60 euros. It is an easy, well-signed drive from the airport to join the Algarve motorway (A 22) where you head west towards Portimao. Turn off the A 22 at the Lagoa exit and follow signs to Lagoa Sud and, as you come abeam of the town at some traffic lights on the N 125, turn right for Carvoeiro. The owner will send directions to cover the final 5 km from Lagoa.
