Casa Farol is a very attractive, 4-bedroom villa for eight guests in the charming, picturesque old fishing town of Carvoeiro. The design is very interesting with a turret formation and double-height aspect to the lounge. It is incredibly bright and airy and an ideal base for a wonderful Algarve holiday.
Carvoeiro is a fantastic destination if you are seeking a calm and relaxed holiday based in a characterful and charming town. The peaceful and welcoming ambience of Carvoeiro makes it an ideal location for families.
Situated on a lovely plot, the villa is walking distance to the town and only 200m to a restaurant. The spectacular beach is 1km away from the villa. The garden is very pretty with Mediterranean plants and shrubs and is fully fenced. The large 9m x 4.5m swimming pool is surrounded by a large terrace with sun loungers. There is a huge undercover part of the terrace for delicious alfresco meals cooked on the brick-built barbecue. The garden and terrace are very private.
The living room is very striking, all in white with a double aspect, sloping, beamed ceiling. It looks so cool and serene. This leads through to the elegant, open-plan dining and kitchen room. The kitchen is modern with glossy white units and is equipped with everything you would wish for. One of the double bedrooms is on this floor with access to the pool terrace and a lovely, sparkling ensuite bathroom with a wonderful shower.
Upstairs, there is a beautiful double bedroom with a stunning pool and sea views, and two further bedrooms with single beds. These bedrooms share an ultra-smart bathroom. All of the bathrooms in this villa are so sleek, modern and pristine. Amazing, contemporary 4-bedroom villa at Sao Martinho do Porto on the splendid Silver Coast of Portugal within easy reach of Porto and Lisbon.

Many guests choose Carvoeiro purely for a relaxed beach holiday, but there is a surprising amount going on within the area, including historic towns, superb golf courses, exciting boat tours, challenging hiking and cycling trails and the thrill of the Algarve’s theme and water parks.
The Algar Seco cliff formation and the Carvoeiro boardwalk are so attractive. The beach is wonderful. The rear is lined by traditional fishing houses which have mostly been converted into tourist restaurants and bars. The beaches on this part of the coast differ from those from Albufeira to Quarteira as they are generally not huge expanses of sand. They are small coves surrounded by cliffs so are immensely more scenic. For scenery, the Praia da Marinha at the end of the Seven Valleys hiking route is probably the best.
Carvoeiro is the start of the ‘Percuso dos Sete Vales Suspensos’ (Seven Hanging Valleys hiking route). It is an 11.5km round trip following the dramatic coastline to Praia da Marinha in the east. The coastline is formed of massive limestone cliffs that have been eroded to create deep-sea caves, perilous sinkholes and incredible sea arches. Secluded beaches are sheltered from the power of the ocean in the hanging valleys. Quite a number can only be reached by boat as the cliffs are sheer. Benagil is approximately halfway. You must take your camera if you go on the hike!
Benagil Cave is a huge attraction. It is stunning and can be accessed on boat trips or by kayak. You will be amazed at the size of it. Some people even take a stand-up paddleboard to see it, a water sport that is incredibly popular on the Algarve.
There are several stunning and challenging golf courses close by, including Vale de Milho Golf 2.5 km from the villa and Pestana Gramacho Golf 4.5 km away. Faro airport is 62km away.

Carvoeiro has always been known for its beautiful coastline, adorned with cliffs, coves and incredible sandy beaches stretching all the way along to Albufeira. These days, however, there is a lot more going on in this charming town than just waves hitting the sand (although that’s certainly still a highlight).

In the past few years Carvoeiro has developed to accommodate for the growing number of tourists who are curious to see what the fuzz is all about, and the town continues to get livelier and livelier each summer. While it has kept its character and remains exquisitely peaceful, there are also plenty of modern amenities and loads of exciting activities in the area. The only thing Carvoeiro won’t provide is a good party, but there are other parts of the Algarve which are perfect for that.


Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that. 

But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Best Suited For: All Ages

Carvoeiro is a favourite with families with a safe, calm beach and welcoming restaurants and cafes. The town beach has no steps and is surrounded by cafes and restaurants, so it is a great hit. Just a little further the Praia Grande has a good play park. Teenagers might prefer to explore Carvalho beach with its secret smuggler entrance and carved steps and lots of snorkelling opportunities.
The Fontes is an area just outside Estombar with a natural lake, natural spring swimming pools, a park and picnic area, barbecues and nature trails. It is good to get there early to grab one of the big picnic tables and a good spot. It is very popular.
Silves Park has a large wooden activity area with swings, slides, little houses and a long-running track which is great for cycling. There is also a skateboard park and a swimming pool close by.
Thrill-seeking children will love the water parks close by. Slide and Splash is the closest, between Lagoa and Estombar. There are plummeting scary slides as well as some milder ones for younger children and a great water playground. Aqualand is a little further away but another great day out.
Krazy World is about half an hour away. It has a petting zoo, a reptile house, an 18-hole mini golf course and pools. It is fun for all ages.
