The Algarve

The Algarve is a wonderful holiday destination with beautiful sandy beaches, picturesque rocky coves, and average of 320 sunny days each year and literally thousands of wonderful restaurants, where you can enjoy excellent food and local wines at very affordable prices. Carvoeiro, until recently a small fishing village, has lost little of its original charm. Today, the village extends to the surrounding hillsides with a combination of beautifully designed individual villas, low rise holiday apartments and a number of extensive holiday complexes which cater for all needs. There are several water parks and a Zoo Marine within a short drive. Two excellent 18 hole golf courses at Gramacho and Pinta along with a 9 hole par 3 course at Vale do Milho  and Carvoeiro Tennis Club are located just outside the town Carvoeiro, until recently a small fishing village, has lost little of its original charm. Today, the village extends to the surrounding hillsides with a combination of beautifully designed individual villas, low rise holiday apartments and a number of extensive holiday complexes which cater for all needs. Three main streets of the village are lined with a wonderful selection of restaurants, bars and tourist shops. Happily, many examples of the quaint old fishermen's cottages remain, dotted between more modern additions. Tourists find that Carvoeiro has a magnetic appeal and choose to return year after year, many have decided to acquire property, the attraction of its beautiful coastline, many beaches and friendly Portuguese hosts being influencing factors. Some of the beaches are sheltered by high cliffs whilst others extend for many kilometres. Beaches to visit are Praia de Centianes , Praia de Carvalho , Praia de Benagil , Praia de Marinha , Praia da Albandeira and Praia do Canerios , all within 10 minutes drive. The shopping centers with cinema are 12 km away. There are a few local large supermarkets within short drive: Intermarche is 1,5km from the town center, Aldi and Pingo Doce are around 5 min drive. There are a few mini-markets; a vegetable shop and a local market are inside the town.
For those who like active holidays there are plenty of opportunities in our area: scuba diving, kayaking, surfing, horse riding, jip safari, wild dolphin watching, fishing in the sea, playing tennis and golf. All these activities are nearby.
