Beach villa with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and private pool in Vale Milho, Algarve

From £1,000 per week

Luxury 3 bed villa with private swimming pool, two barbecues, high speed WIFI, maid service and private garden very close to Carvoeiro.

Overview

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.

Maid 3 times a week

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 areVale da Pinta and Gramacho golf courses. Both courses are 18 holes and were designed by Ronald Fream.

Further Afield
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 at Country Riding Centre Silves and Quinta da Gill, the water slide parks of Slide & Splash & Aqualand, Zoomarine ocean theme park and the Krazy World Algarve Zoo at nearby Algoz.

A delightful property, well maintained by the owner. The property was as described on the website. It included more than enough utensils if one wished to self cater, the lounge area and bedrooms were comfortable and it was a joy to relax by the pool. The cleaner Paula kept the property neat and clean, the pool maintenance man was a cheery gentleman and the local representative Carole was attentive and helpful. We found nothing to criticise. Hopefully we will go again.

My family of 5 stayed at Casa Amora in August 22 and had a fabulous time. The villa was lovely , well equipt and very clean. The automatic awnings were great and provided much needed shade over the patio area for those of us that needed shade. The bbq was great and much used ! The toaster broke during our stay. Once reported to Carol the on-site villa manager this was replaced within 24 hours. Would definately rebook should we return to Portugal

Fantastic villa and exceptional value for money - photos don't do it justice in my opinion.

Main town is about 35 minute walk away, and is a pleasant walk in the early evening - be prepared for it to be slightly hilly though! We didn't rent a car and there were cheap cabs available via uber or bolt at all times (may need to wait 10 mins or so if calling one from the villa, but always pretty immediate if from the town back to the villa. Cost 4 - 5 eur per ride back from town, and similarly to the large supermarket - there are a couple smaller stores about 10 min walk away, but if you're doing a bigger shop it's all up hill on the way back!).

Outside area was great. Pool was a fantastic size and the diving board made for a very fun addition. Made use of the bbq too.

Tracey was always very quick and helpful in her communications.

This was our 3rd visit to this lovely villa and once again it was just wonderful. The trip was booked during lockdown so it was something for us all to look forward to after a horrible few years. Everything was as we remembered and we had a wonderful time. Carole as usual was fantastic, dropping in to check that everything was OK and giving great advice and recommendations. When I mentioned that we could do with an umbrella shade for the terrace she returned immediately with one for us.

The only fault I might have is that the outside area could do with some updating, particularly the sun loungers need to be replaced (one broke when my daughter sat on it and you could see it had just aged and weakened) also the outside table and chairs could be updated as the rattan has come off the table surround. I would also suggest that the diving board could be removed as I feel it is a bit dangerous as it also looks like it has weakened over time and may prove to be dangerous.

Otherwise once again we had a wonderful time in a wonderful villa and we look forward to returning many times in the future.

Many thanks

Nice and well maintained and equiped property. We stayed with the family 2 adults and 4 children (age 10-16) for only 5 days. Enviroment is not that exciting although the walk along the cliffs and beaches to Benagil was nice.

Private Owner From Sevenoaks, United Kingdom Member since Sep 2006

A bit about myself ... I'm married with two children and live in Kent. I don't work full time but I have several interests, some paid, some voluntary, with most related to properties. For example, I'm a relocation agent helping people move to the UK, refurbish properties for business and own use, am a landlord and, of course, have Casa Amora. My parents bought Casa Amora from plan and I took over the running in the mid-2000s. So, as well as being a business, it's our family vacation home. I plan on keeping the villa as a escape in the sun so no air conditioning or high-tech wiring, but homely, comfortable and with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. I'm open to suggestions.
