“Perfect!”
Reviewed 10 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Location is excellent, view over the nice town of Silves with the Castello, a beautiful garden and all the facilities you can ask for! The amazing beaches are nearby if the pool area isn't enough and a daytrip to the end of the world is nice when you got too much sun. We like to revisit!

“Luxury villa rental overlooking medieval Algarve town for great price”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was a stunning villa with a lot of space, a heated indoor pool, outdoor pool, hot tub, pool table room, two fireplaces, a gym, summer kitchen,beautiful gardens and expansive grounds with a playground for kids. You could spend your entire vacation just on the property alone. We stayed in the off-season (March) so the prices were extremely reasonable for what you were getting. We were two families with 2 kids under 2 and it was extremely comfortable and family friendly. The views were also quite stunning of Silves, a charming medieval town, and you could either walk or drive easily to Silves for a coffee, stroll or dinner. Stunning beaches and other charming Algarve towns were easily reached by car from this location.

The internet was very reliable and the owner should win awards for how responsive he is. He was very quick to respond via text, phone or email and if there were any problems or missing supplies, they were dealt with almost immediately. He definitely knows what he is doing.

Please note that while the view is stunning, you can hear some small amount of noise from a local road below. So the property is not completely isolated in the countryside - but it also adds to the charm to be able to easily access Silves.

Overall, a great find and we would definitely visit here again.

Liked best: Soooo many luxury amenities.
Liked least: The house needed a bit of fixing here and there - i.e. doors, light switches, finicky heating. And more base supplies for our stay - toilet paper, towels, dish soap etc. But the owners provided us with these as soon as we mentioned it.

We stayed at Villa Carlota for our wedding in August 2014.

The property is absolutely stunning and incredibly spacious. Every area is decorated and looked after to a really high standard. There's the pool area - indoor and out, saloon, gym, bikes and all within a short journey of Silves. We stayed at Villa Carlota before the recent development, and even without the jacuzzi and bar it was a wonderful place to stay. The gardens are huge and incredibly well kept, with lots of fruit you can help yourself to - great lemons for our gin and tonics!

Nothing is too much trouble for the owners and they were truly fantastic hosts.

We would love to go back in the future - maybe for a wedding anniversary!

We have just returned from a family holiday here - there were 10 of us aged between 4 to 50 something! We were nervous about what the villa was going to be like as the photos seemed too good to be true, but it was all that and more!!! From the communication prior to arrival, the warm welcome, the facilities, the location, the staff, the views of the beautiful Silves, the fruit trees, the above and beyond delivery of a birthday cake for my sister-in-law (with the attention to detail of her age on the candles!) - I could go on! - everything was perfect!!
As others have said - I'd like to keep this place as 'our little secret!!' but I couldn't possibly - everyone should experience this pleasure!
I like to complain about stuff normally, but I cannot fault anything about our stay - truly exceptional - we will be returning for sure!!
Thank you Amelia and Jose!

We were 2 families travelling together to Algarve for the first time. Our group was consisted of 8 (4 adults and 4 children between the age 9 to 3 years).

The Villa offered lots of space and nice features to our families. The kids loved the pools and the game room. Especially the internal heated pool was a success for the period we went. The kids also loved walking through the garden discovering new paths and playing in the playground. We were very pleased we didn't need to go out of the house for our kids to have a good time.

We loved the veranda around the swimming pool with the outside kitchen. This was the place where we spent most of our time. We did our cooking here (also bbq) and had our meals. The men also loved the pool table which was used daily.

The rooms were great and comfy with good (quite) air conditioning everywhere in the house. It was also wonderful to close the day sitting in the veranda watching the sunset with a glass of cava and some nachos with fresh guacamole I've made from the avocados we collected in orchard! Just delicious!

But the best part of all was the great service and hospitality from José and Amélia. You can see that they spent lots of efforts to make this a great place. For sure they’ve succeeded! And I’m happy they are allowing others to enjoy it!

Amélia had also baked a cake for us for our arrival and give us a bottle of Cava. José was also very helpful and provided us excellent suggestions on restaurants in the area, which we took it and enjoyed great meals!

During the booking process José 's reply was always on the same day and the whole process went very smoothly. He also allowed us to see the other property he is renting and invited the kids to use the swimming pool there as well. This is another great place to consider when visiting the Algarve. During this visit they also spoiled our kids with ice creams and chips and let us taste a homemade wine which was a great day to end the afternoon. What a great hospitality! They treated us as friends, our kids, especially my niece loved Amélia and wanted to hug and kiss her as she has known her for years! After years of renting houses/villas in different countries I can tell you this was an exceptional experience!

In short, Villa Carlota is a perfect place to relax and enjoy some quality time with your love ones. Our kids still talk about it and my son wants to move to Portugal. For sure we are considering to go back and will definitely contact José and Amélia again!
