    “Shops, shopping and close down: excellent; gastronomy sports and leisure facilities: do not use them; kid friendly but certainly little to do for children of 0-6 years. Carvoeiro is a fun place to be, quiet and a short distance from beaches.”

    “We only stayed one night in Carvoeiro, there is a lively tourist resort. In the area there are many beautiful beaches and nice places. Very good choice of supermarkets in Lagoa, around 4km away.”

    “We were in the peaceful resort of Vale de Centianes. The for our growing children was rather boring. For us INCURRED but more of a recovery, at least for me. Those looking for a bit of bustle, can drive in 5 minutes to Carvoeiro, where there is also a vibrant beach. Cute shops, cafes and bars. In the town center events are often like live music. With a little train you can for 1.50 € a 45min. make reconnaissance trip around Carvoeiro, worthwhile and fun. Definitely it is worth exploring the caves. Grutas Algarve - Praia do Carvoeiro. A viewing and climbing experience with super friendly restaurant and grilled fish. There, however, you should reserve a table in advance”

The lively town of Carvoeiro is only 5km away and this family friendly destination offers a wide choice of shops, entertainment, restaurants, bars and a welcoming atmosphere throughout the year.

The Benagil Holidays office is located within the same building as the property and Kim and Floris are always more than happy to provide local information about the area and to help to arrange tours, amusement park tickets and much more.

Carvoeiro was a traditional, small fishing village surviving on the tuna catches but has, not surprisingly, become an incredibly popular resort with visitors and has developed to keep pace.

Portuguese flotilla attacked the Turkish corsair, Xaramet, and destroyed his fleet. Today the most activity you are likely to see is people enjoying the beach and the local fishermen bringing in their catches!
Carvoeiro is very popular for family holidays as there is such a large choice of self-catering accommodation and has all the things you are likely to want in quite a compact area around the town centre. A lot of the accommodation is in new residential areas on the outskirts as the developments have spread, but it is all in keeping - this isn't an area of high rise hotels and apartment blocks.

The centre of Carvoeiro isn't very big and there are just two roads leading down into the town where they meet in a small square behind the beach. There is no parking in the square since it was given a re-vamp in 2009 so be prepared to find parking up one of the side streets away from the centre.
There are plenty of shops in the town for your everyday needs and because they are used to catering for British visitors you will be able to find most of your normal groceries. There is also a big Intermarché on the Lagoa road on the outskirts of Carvoeiro for even more choice.
The town beach, Praia do Carvoeiro is a beautifully sheltered sandy bay and spreads out just in front of the square with cliffs protecting it on either side. There are bars and cafés ideally placed around the square to still enjoy the view when you leave the beach!

Holiday house vacation along Portugal’s south coast

Algarve | The coastal region Algarve is one of Europe’s most popular travel destinations. Wide, flat sandy beaches, beautiful villages and many leisure facilities are some of characteristics for the eastern part of the Algarve coast. This part of the coast, also referred to as Sotavento, stretches from the Spanish border to the main city Faro. The western section is shaped by its impressive cliff coast, idyllic bathing bays and charming beautiful landscape and is situated between Faro and Sagres. This part is also called Barlavento. The windswept Cabo de São Vicente is the south western most point of Europe and was said to be the end of the world until Christoph Columbus discovered America. Behind the coastal area which is also called “Littoral” ascend the peaks and mountains of the Serra de Monchique and the Serra de Calderao. The impressive mountainous backdrop offers lots of room and is ideal for an active holiday. Whether you want to go climbing, mountain biking, hiking or just want to enjoy the panorama with the deep blue ocean – here almost anything is possible and on atraveo you can also find pretty holiday houses in the mountains.

What else you can do around the Algarve? Interesting cities such as Faro, Portimao, Lagos or Tavira are always worth a visit. Besides that the Algarve has probably the world’s greatest density of golf courses that will be very much to the liking of golf enthusiasts. Around the larger cities there are range of leisure facilities including adventure pools, go-cart tracks and miniature golf. In addition to this numerous day trips such as the lighthouse of Cabo de São Vicente will give you lots of entertainment.

So did you get an appetite for a holiday house vacation along the Algarve? Then take some time and have a look through the offers for Portugal’s south coast on atraveo in order to find your perfect holiday home! Just a little tip: In regards to the Algarve atraveo customers especially prefer the areas around Albufeira, Lagos, Carvoeiro, Armacao De Pera, Tavira and Odeceixe.
