For many visitors, spending a few sun-drenched weeks in this stunning region is simply not enough, making it a common place for tourists to own their own property. There are Algarve-based English-written publications and newspapers specifically addressed to the high numbers of British expatriates residing in this sunny region of Portugal.

Villa Algarve Heated Pool

Heated Pool

My beautiful villa on the outskirts of Carvoeiro has a solar heated swimming pool, a large secluded garden, and a separate one-bedroom bungalow style garden apartment with its own walled terrace, which is available for holidays or longer rental.

The one bedroom bungalow style garden apartment is situated on the far side of my garden.

It has its own private walled terrace, and is separated from my villa by a large studio (used for storage) and shady pergola.

The heated pool is in the centre of the garden and also has a walled terrace with sunbeds and seating.

In fact there are all the comforts of home with use of my heated swimming pool, beaches, restaurants and golf all within easy walking distance, as well as the pretty seaside town of Carvoeiro nearby.

Carvoeiro is a picturesque fishing village which lies in some of the most unspoilt coastline on the Algarve. In summer it is a lively resort, but tight regulations have restricted development . Although small it has fine restaurants and bars, boutiques, banks, a chemist and all the shops essential for daily needs. As well as the perfect sandy beach of Carvoeiro itself there are many other scenic beaches within easy reach of the bungalow, such as Centianes, Benegil and Marinha.
