Villa overview - owner's description

The townhouse is in a small, exclusive development set on the cliff top about 1km outside the popular, bustling resort of Carvoeiro. The development consists of 80 two storey townhouses set in beautiful mature gardens that abound with palm trees, bougainvillea and well tended lawns. The houses were built about 30 years ago, but they have been completely refurbished within the past 10 years. There is a large communal swimming pool, which is heated in winter, a poolside bar and a restaurant. Other on-site amenities include a tennis court, table tennis, a small health club/gym and a reception office, with friendly helpful staff, that is open every day. There is direct access from the resort’s gardens on to the cliff top, which is a protected area that is home to many birds and is full of wild flowers in springtime.

The townhouse overlooks the pool and sunbathing area to the front. To the rear is part of the communal lawns with partial views over the cliff top to the ocean. The ground floor of the house consists of a tiled entrance area, a fully fitted kitchen (with dishwasher), shower room with WC, and a lounge/dining room with French windows opening to a pretty patio and the communal lawn. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one twin and one double, and a bathroom. The house is comfortably furnished and the floors are tiled throughout in the Portuguese fashion. The bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes and the twin bedroom, which is at the rear and is air-conditioned, has a balcony with views out to sea. The double bedroom has a large floor-standing cooling fan for hot nights. In the lounge, which is air-conditioned, there is a stereo radio/CD, a cable TV with several English channels, including BBC 1 and 2 and Channel 4. The house is cleaned twice weekly by the resort’s maid service. Bed linen and towels (except beach towels) are provided and changed weekly. Babies’ cots can be arranged. There is free WiFi internet in the house.

In the Carvoeiro Area
Carvoeiro is a popular holiday destination with a great variety of restaurants and many other tourist facilities. It attracts families, couples and golfers, but not the 18-30 crowd, who tend to prefer Albufeira because of its many nightclubs. The coastline in the area is mainly limestone cliffs with many coves and caves. There is a variety of beautiful sandy beaches, the nearest is Praia de Centeanes, which is a 6-8 minute walk from Palm Gardens. There are many more beaches within a short drive, such as Praias des Carvalho, Benagil, Marinha, Albandeira and, of course, Carvoeiro itself. Each beach has its own attractions with varying degrees of facilities and accessibility. Our favourites are Centeanes and Marinha.

Golf Courses
The Algarve is known as a golfer’s paradise and there are many excellent golf courses within a half hour’s drive. The Pestana Group runs three beautiful 18 hole championship courses in the Carvoeiro area and guests at the resort are entitled to discounted (-40%) green fees on these courses (namely, Vale da Pinta, Gramacho and Silves – see Closer at hand, within 5 minutes drive, is the 9 hole par 3 Vale de Milho course.

Further Afield
To fully appreciate the western Algarve you should visit the historic town of Silves with its Moorish castle, and drive into the hills to Monchique and Caldas de Monchique, places that can provide a welcome respite from the heat of summer. Monchique, which is at the same height as Snowdon, is one of the best places to sample the local delicacy, piri-piri sauce, traditionally served on barbecued chicken. Cape St Vincent, the southwestern tip of Europe, is about two hours drive from Carvoeiro and makes an excellent day excursion..

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 excursions can be obtained from the reception office.

Excellent shopping can be found either at the Algarve Shopping Retail Park at Guia, near Albufeira, or in the fishing port of Portimao. Portimao also has a daily market and a large monthly market held on the first Monday of the month. Algarve Shopping and Portimao are each within 20 minutes drive.
Other nearby activities include horse riding at either the Silves Country Riding Centre, or Quinta da Gill, and for children, the water slide parks of Slide & Splash and Aqualand, ZooMarine ocean theme park and the Krazy World Algarve Zoo at nearby Algoz.

Although not essential, it is recommended that you hire a car to get the most from your holiday. However, if you don’t wish to drive, there is a restaurant on site and all the facilities of Carvoeiro are within 10-15 minutes walk. There is a bus service, or a taxi ride to or from the centre of Carvoeiro costs about 5 euros. Transfers by taxi between Faro airport and Carvoeiro cost about 50 euros each way (see

Family from Taunton, United Kingdom Apr 2019

We had a very enjoyable 2 weeks. The Villa is in a good position with the pool being very accessible. The simple furnishings were well maintained - the dishwasher and microwave were replaced as soon as they broke down - Reception were very helpful. The private terrace was small but adequate [would have been much less private if the property immediately attached had been occupied.] Excellent situation for access to the beach at Centianes and tennis club at Rocha Brava [tennis court on site is okay for basic tennis but needs resurfacing as there are lots of humps and bumps.] The Restaurant is under new ownership and is well run with friendly and helpful staff [menu is a bit limited though] Seagull noise in the early morning wasn't fun!! But we knew they would be a problem before we arrived so we had packed our earplugs!! The pool is no longer heated which was a surprise - still managed to swim most days despite the cold water - good for the circulation and meant you swam more vigorously!

Family from Hampton, United Kingdom Aug 2016

Great property. Has everything you need. Beautifully clean, comfy beds, sofas etc. We also really liked aspect near pool & snack bar etc with young children. Back terrace lovely too with views to ocean. Reception team fantastic, very friendly & restaurant does great food. Location perfect too - away from the hustle & bustle of town & near the beautiful beaches & great restaurants. Already thinking of a return visit next year!!

Family from Dublin 15, Ireland Aug 2016

We had a wonderful holiday here. The house was great - spacious, really clean and well equipped! Location was fantastic - beach, cliffs and Carvoeiro all beautiful. Palm Gardens is a lovely small development with nice facilities. Both owner, rental company & Palm Gardens staff made planning and organising the holiday so easy.

Family from Basildon, United Kingdom Aug 2015

We had a good 10 days, the house is a little too close to the pool for our liking, but this is clear from the listing, on site food over priced. Good for a family holiday.

Family from Stoke-on-trent, United Kingdom Aug 2014

Lovely quiet clean apartment, approx 30 mins drive from Faro and about 1 mile (20 minutes walk) from Carvoeiro town centre. Spacious, well furnished, well equipped and in mostly good working order- everything we needed for a week long holiday! The only exception was the fan on the oven which made a fairly horrific noise, so we didnt use that ) Pool and poolside amenities was excellent, but was only available between 9am and 7pm. Poolside bar/restaurant expensive and service not good. Nearest supermarket 10 minutes walk away, down the hill to Carvoeiro. If you stay here, make sure you take the cliffside walk to the small beach below - really worthwhile!

This is an excellent apartment and we would recommend it as a base for visiting the Algave!

Couple from Worcester, United Kingdom Sep 2013
