Luxury 3 bed villa with private swimming pool, two barbecues, high speed WIFI, maid service and private garden very close to Carvoeiro.
Combining the luxury of home with the best of the Algarve, Casa Amora is a 3 bedroom villa near the popular town of Carvoeiro.
Built in the 1990s and named after the owner's childhood home (thats mulberries not love!), Casa Amora is a inviting home from home for a family holiday. The villa is equipped with high-speed WiFi, a music centre, flat screen LCD TV, DVD player and several English channels. For those not tempted by the pool and outside life, there is a Playstation PS2, XBox Kinect and a selection of books and games.
The ground floor has the main reception, combining the dining and seating areas, and a separate kitchen. The bedrooms are also on this floor. The master bedroom has an ensuite with its own Jacuzzi bath. Beds 2 & 3 are located on the other side of the villa and are both twin rooms sharing a bathroom. There is also a separate cloakroom. The roof top sun room has panoramic views over the countryside and coastline; this room has air-con, available with an additional charge. (Note that the main reception area and bedrooms do NOT have air-con).
Meals can be taken inside on the dining table or at any of the 3 outdoor dining areas. One such area is in an enclosed courtyard with its own barbecue and dining table. The other dining areas are near the private swimming pool and the second barbecue of the property. This area also has an outdoor shower and garden toilet.

In the Carvoeiro Area
The area has a variety of beautiful beaches, the nearest is Praia de Centeanes and is within walking distance. Also within a short drive are Praias des Carvalho, Benagil, Marinha, Albandeira and, of course, Carvoeiro. Each beach has its own attractions with varying degrees of facilities and accessibility. Personal favourites are Centeanes and Marinha. There is a scenic cliff top walk between Marinha and Albandeira for the more adventurous (not recommended for toddlers).
The Algarve is known for its golfing and the villa is only 2 minutes walk of the Vale de Milho golf course. This par 3 course was designed by Dave Thomas to challenge all golfers. There is also a clubhouse, restaurant and bar. On the other side of Carvoeiro are Vale da Pinta and Gramacho golf courses. Both courses are 18 holes and were designed by Ronald Fream.
For a complete perspective of the area visit the historic town of Silves with its Moorish Castle, or venture up into the hills to Monchique and Caldas de Monchique. Monchique is one of the best places for the local delicacy, peri-peri sauce, traditionally served on barbecued chicken. For those not adverse to a longer drive, visit Cape St Vincent, the Southwestern tip of Europe.
To appreciate the coastline you can take boat cruises from Portimao or, for the more energetic, take a pedalo from one of the several beaches. Some boats also offer sport fishing. Details of several excursions can be found in the villa.
Recommended by the owner are the excellent shopping malls of Algarve Shopping at Guia or Agua Shopping at Portimao. Portimao also has a daily market and a large monthly market held on the first Monday of the month. Whilst in Portimao, why not experience the famous sardines at one of the restaurants overlooking the bay. Algarve shopping and Portimao can both be reached within 20 minutes drive.
Popular gypsy markets can be found in the nearby towns of Loule and Quarteira.
Other nearby activities include horseriding, the water slide parks of Slide & Splash & Aqualand, Zoomarine ocean theme park and the Krazy World Algarve Zoo at nearby Algoz.
