Be wary of extra costs prior to booking - the owner has withheld €160 for the use of air conditioning, which is not clear in the original advert on holiday lettings. Nice villa, however the outside area has been left run down, broken tiles around...More

Highly recommended for a family of four or five. Swimming pool heating cost must be clarified with the owner on who should pay for it. House is well equipt with all you need for a few weeks.

About the neighbourhood
Carvoeiro is beautiful, especially when viewed from the hills on either side of the town, which we did every night to observe the beautiful sunsets. It is layered with white-washed villas and buildings, which seem to undulate in harmony with the natural rocky landscape.
