“Superb villa and location for family birthday celebration”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is the first time we had been self catering abroad and this villa and it's location made it
a fantastic holiday. The villa itself is spacious and comfortable and very well equipped, ( a maid visits three times a week providing fresh towels, bedding, etc) it has a lovely secluded swimming pool and different parts of the garden get sunshine nearly all day long. The quaint fishing village of Carvoeiro is only a short distance away with it's shops and daily market (good selection of fish beautifully filleted for the BBQ) , whilst larger supermarkets are only ten minutes drive away - Apolonia supermarket, near Lagoa, very high quality.
It is very convenient for local beaches and great cliff walks with an abundance of wild colourful flowers. Three generations of us stayed for over a week and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and cannot wait to return.The fact that the villa is all on one level made it so much easier for everyone young and old.
The help given by Alex ( PAC Portugal Ltd) cannot be underestimated and it was great that he visited us a couple of times to ensure everything was fine, and gave us lots of useful information about the area. The welcome pack we found on our arrival was far better than we expected and after a days travelling was just what we needed.

“Spacious villa with pool only minutes from the beach”

I stayed at Casa Rostra in October last year with family and friends and we all had a fantastic time. The villa is really comfortable, spacious and clean and there is a maid service during your stay to ensure it stays that way! The outside space offers different seating areas to enjoy meals, two of which are by the pool. There is also a lovely terrace at the front of the villa which catches the evening sun. The local village is a short walk away and has lots of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. There is also a lovely, unspoilt beach only a few minutes away. I would thoroughly recommend Casa Rostra to anyone looking to stay in the area.

We really enjoyed our visit to Carvoeiro. It is a large village with loads of character and friendly people. The coastline is beautiful. The villa was just what we wanted because it was very spacious and peaceful but also very 3 minutes walk to a gorgeous sandy beach. Carvoeiro village has lots of bars and good restaurants for a night out and although we didn't have a car, we could walk in easily and then get get a taxi back at night.

The swimming pool was not overlooked by anyone and at night was all lit up. We walked along the cliffs to the next beaches along the coast and also played tennis at the nearby hotel.

We really liked the Italian restaurant close to the villa on the way to the beach -they do good takeaways as well.

The villa has lots of outside areas around the villa where we could eat . The garden was lovely. We used the pergola by the pool in the heat of the day but we could also sit on the roof terrace where there was a nice sea view.
Inside the villa was cool-even on hot days and it was well equipped. The maid was excellent and came 3 mornings a week for a couple of hours each. We caught the mini- train to Ferragudo and ate at the fish restaurant on the front.

We would definitely recommend the villa to anyone who wanted to stay near Carvoeiro.
