4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Carvoeiro, Faro District, Algarve
This spacious villa has an open plan lounge/dining area with top grade furniture and a large modern kitchen with Bosch appliances. The two master bedrooms on the first floor each have en suite facilities and private terraces with wonderful views. The two downstairs bedrooms open out on to the garden and pool and share a large shower room and WC.

The property is a few hundred yards from the clubhouse which serves excellent breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The small supermarket at the golf course entrance 400 yards away bakes its own bread and croissants daily and has a wide selection of wines and adequate selection of groceries. Two good supermarkets are 1 km and 2 kms away on the outskirts of Lagoa and Carvoeiro respectively. Lagoa has a winery and a good daily market and good coffee shops and restaurants. Carvoeiro is busier, but...

Management response:

Many thanks for the kind comments: the team works hard to make sure the ambiance and the whole experience is just what you would wish for. They have been with us for six years, and we keep them employed year round, whether the villa is occupied or not, to ensure that the villa is kept to the highest standards.

Additional amenities & feature info
We built the villa to the highest standards, with a Scottish surveyor and a Portuguese architect, We wanted something that had echos of Moorish architecture (hence the atrium which acts to cool the villa in summer and warm it in winter), yet was comfortable for our eventual retirement. We wanted a comprehensive kitchen to be able to eat in, and a permanent built-in BBQ by the pool so that we could entertain indoors or out.

The bedrooms are of good size, with built in wardrobes. Our housekeeper is brilliant; she comes in 3 times a week within the villa rental, but may be able to do more if you wish. Our manager Teresa is a dynamic local landowner who also speaks excellent English.

About the neighbourhood
Lagoa is the nearest town, with a local market and good coffee shops and a gentle pace of life. Carvoeiro on the coast is busier, but has a great range of restaurants, to suit every taste and every purse.The coastline is stunning, and is a contender for World Heritage status, with private coves and fantastic rocks, but beware - this is the Atlantic, not the Mediterranrean, and swim only where there is a lifeguard present. Many of these little coves have their own beach restaurants, details are in the villa, with previous guests comments.There are good walks along the cliffs to the east and west of Carvoeiro with great scenery and good local restaurants every few kilometres.Pestana Golf has two good 18 hole golf courses, a David Leadbetter Golf Academy, tennis courts and bowling.

Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Faro International: 65.0 km
Ferry: Santander: 900.0 km
Arrive Faro Airport which is served by virtually all the low cost airlines and by BA. A taxi can be pre-booked at competitive rates, or hire a car from one of many rental companies (we can advise of our experience of both options). The drive from Faro to Casa Florida is mainly on an excellent motorway, the A22, exiting at Lagoa/Silves. The villa is about 3 kms further, located on the Gramacho Golf Course run by the excellent Pestana Group, who also run the Portuguese national Pousadas. We will supply detailed driving instructions on receipt of a booking. Our average time from Faro Airport is 40 minutes.
