Get to Know Carvoeiro before choosing a Villa in the Algarve
If you’re looking for an Algarve destination with a difference, Carvoeiro is a great resort to visit from any of a wide range of Algarve villas, making finding accommodation easy and the experience unique. A civil parish in the Lagoa Municipality, Carvoeiro is about 5km south of Lagoa city, but has no shortage of attractions of its own. It is a picturesque fishing village that, having been described by a foreign visitor in 1965 as a place where “the mode of living remains essentially medieval”, has now grown to become the main tourist area of the municipality.
Carvoeiro Algarve villas give you access to many of the same selling points of resorts elsewhere in the Algarve, such as highly picturesque scenery, an excellent sandy beach and a climate that produces average maximum temperatures of 28 degrees Celsius in July and August.
Of particular interest to visitors, however, will be the many family friendly activities in the area. The pretty Carvoeiro Beach, for example, is located in a sheltered sandy cove and is an excellent place to relax in the sun or swim in the sea. For a change of scenery or for even greater seclusion, pay a visit to some of the nearby beaches such as Marinha, Carvalho and Benagil.
Once you’ve tired of all that, before heading back to your Algarve holiday villa, how about a visit to the area’s theme parks? There are some excellent water parks in the area that will be of delight to both children and adults. These include the thrilling Slide and Splash water park and Zoomarine, the latter actually allowing you to swim with dolphins.
There’s plenty more going on in and around Carvoeiro than just that, however. If you like the idea of taking a break in Carvoeiro at this time of year as the weather heats up, you may be interested in the many concerts, sports tournaments and ferias that are taking place locally. How about the concert by the Orquestra do Algarve in nearby Lagoa Auditorium on 14th May? or the Festa da Nossa Senhora da Encarnação, which takes place in Carvoeiro on the last Sunday of every August?
To enjoy all of these events and more, you’ll need to find a local villa. The three-bedroom Casa Alaris is set just a few minutes’ drive away from the centre of Carvoeiro in the popular Vale de Milho community, and features secluded pools, terraces and outdoor dining areas with built-in barbecues. Its first floor terrace also allows for lovely country views. It’s simply the perfect place to base a Carvoeiro holiday.
For those who need a greater amount of space, other great Carvoeiro and Algarve villas include Casa Francesca. This beautiful family villa sleeps 11 people across its five bedrooms, and is mere walking distance away from the shops, restaurants and bars in Monte Carvoeiro, which is itself just a few minutes from Carvoeiro centre.
Or how about booking the superior and modern Villa Oliveiras? This villa, just 2.5km from Carvoeiro centre, is very spacious and attractive and features sea views and a private optional heated pool.
