One area is the living area and the other the sleeping area. You will see this highlighted on the photos above as well as its position to the town.

"Just returned from a short break staying at Casa Caravela in Carvoeiro. The villa is a stone throw away from both the beach and the town. It is very spacious, homely, well equipped and in a fabulous location. You can sit on the terrace (one of many) or Sit on the sofa in the lounge and see the beach and hear the waves crashing! Maybe next time I visit I will be able to enjoy the pool in the sunshine.........." - Mrs Rome January 2017
"Very spacious villa with a fantastic location. The villa is a stone's throw to the centre of Carvoeiro and even closer to some of the restaurants and bars. You can see the beach and sea from the villa and could walk there in 5 minutes. The villa itself is well appointed with 3 large double bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms and it has plenty of communal space. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need. It has a pool and plenty of outdoor space although in January it wasn't warm enough to use it! Will be fabulous in the warmer weather..........." - Mrs Purnell January 2017
"We stayed in this villa for a week in June. Very spacious villa, 3 large bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. Air-con throughout. Nice pool, with sunbeds and beach towels provided. Fully functional kitchen. A BBQ is provided. Lovely views of the sea from the balcony. Very clean, and the cleaner and pool man come in once a week. A welcome pack was provided on arrival, which was a lovely personal touch.
A 2-3 minute walk to the centre of town, plenty of bars and restaurants in the area. "Taste" restaurant was exceptional. Plenty of places offering various trips. We went to Zoomarine and the markets in Loule.
Booked this villa through Pac4Portugal, and Alex came to see us on arrival and before we left to ensure everything was ok. He even dropped us off at the supermarket to do our shopping!! We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa and I hope to return in the near future" Mahon Family, NI, June 2017
"Will be Back!....We have had a fantastic week at Casa Caravela from 24-30 June! The villa is so spacious and catered to our every need- we thought the beach pack was really useful. The pool is large enough for a big group and the space around it is great for sunbathing. This area got direct sunlight in the morning until the evening, which we enjoyed. The many balconies were great to eat meals and see Carvoeiro from many different angles. Inside the house is great for resting, there is a huge comfortable sofa and you can watch Netflix on the tv. We didn't hire a car as Casa Caravela is very central and only a short walk to the shops, restaurants, beach and boardwalk. The beach is lovely and if there's any windy days you are very protected down there! Carvoeiro is a lovely town and we really enjoyed dining at Happy's and Ele and Ela, and getting drinks at Bar Charlie which overlooks the nighttime entertainment! This can also be heard from the balconies of Casa Caravela if you stay in. We also enjoyed a day trip to Silves and Quinta De Frances winery (recommended in the welcome book). The week flew by but we will be back to Casa Caravela!" - A Happy Couple June 2017
"Superb spacious villa, excellent location close to beach and town....A great two week stay in this lovely villa. Pictures really do not do justice to the facilities, location and space this beautiful villa provides. Huge airy rooms, all with excellent en-suite facilities, and extremely well equipped. The location is ideal - a quick 5 minute downhill stroll to the centre of town and restaurants but far enough out to be private. The outside space is superb - lovely gardens and pool area all very well maintained. Communal areas inside are all well appointed with plenty of seating, wifi and satellite TV. The management company were great - very helpful both before and during our stay, with a real personal touch. Nothing seemed too much trouble from early check in to luggage storage. Their staff - maids, gardeners and pool man all very friendly and discrete. I would recommend Casa Caravela and Pac4Portugal to anyone looking for a relaxed stay in Carvoeiro. We will certainly be booking again for next year" - The Hyde Family, UK, July 2017
"Spacious well equipped house in a central location....Great place to stay in Carvoeiro, if you like a central location close to the beach and the town square. In the evening you can hear the live music from the square on your terrace. The house is very spacious, the ensuite bathrooms are great, as well as the pool area. The house is clean and very well equipped. The communication with Pac4Portugal was very satisfactory, Alex Cracknell responded rapidly to all my questions. Recommended!" - The Blancke Family, The Netherlands July 2017
"Wonderful views!....A great villa in a wonderful location. Tucked away from the main town, but near enough for all the amenities. The villa is very well appointed and has everything you could need. The bedrooms are big and airy with great ensuites. Alex is on hand for any little problems you may have. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. Would recommend." - The Greaves Family, UK August 2017
"Fantastic villa in a great location....The standard of this villa is superb and you can't fault the location. Sea view and a short walk to the town and beach. Great to have a bean to cup espresso machine!! The pool area was great and the pool is a decent size. No need for a car as a short 5 minute walk will get you to the beach and Carvoeiro where you have a great selection of restaurants. Would highly recommend." - The Rickett Family, UK August 2017
"Perfect Holiday....We stayed at Casa Caravela in September and had a lovely time. The view from the terrace down over the rooftops to the beach and bay was spectacular particularly with a glass of rose at sunset! The Villa had everything we needed and it was an easy walk to town which had lots of lovely restaurants which we enjoyed. We'll definitely be back!!!" - Nicky & Friends, UK September 2017
"Amazing villa - lots of thoughtful touches...Had a great stay at Casa Caravela. The villa has a great location, walking distance to beach and shops and it is clear the owners have put a lot of thought into the extra touches that really help with a self catering holiday - umbrellas, cool box, books, DVDs, board games etc- all the things you don't want to pack but really help you settle in. Pool was amazing and nice and warm - our 6 year old was in there everyday for hours despite the rain! Inflatables and diving sticks a big hit! Really well equipped kitchen, lots of space, and the pool table an added bonus. We would love to come back when the weather is a little bit better!" - Evetts Family UK April 2018
"Ideal Location...A truly comfortable villa ideally placed to enjoy the attractions of Carvoeiro. The heated pool and pool area are excellent the beach and town centre are just a short stroll away as are many good restaurants. All in all a great base to go exploring the algarve. If you prefer to just relax around the villa there are plenty of cosy places to enjoy a book and the odd glass of wine with some stunning views across the town and beach. We will be returning to this villa again." - Rob & Sue UK April 2018
"Fabulous villa...Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful, spacious and well equipped villa. Photos don’t do it justice. Excellent location. We will be back for sure." - Alex M & family UK May 2018
"First Class Accommodation...This villa is First Class, Sea views, Near the beach, Fabulous restaurants on the doorstep. As with most villas near the sea quite a few steps to use so not really for very young children or the elderly but no problem for us and the steps lead to fantastic views. Lots of privacy in all the rooms, very, very clean which is our first priority. excellent crockery and kitchen facilities, everything in full working order, fab pool, games room a plus, cannot fault this villa. Alex the Manager made sure everything was perfect. Welcome pack the best we ever had. Given the opportunity we would not hesitate to rebook. We have already recommended this villa to friends without hesitation." - Sue D & family UK May 2018
"Top class...We stayed here as a group of 4 adults and 2 teens from 1-11th July. It was perfect for us as each huge bedroom had its own bathroom and small terrace and it felt like your own apartment but yet we could all meet up in the fabulous communal areas! The villa has everything you would need, pool towels, beach towels, parasols, cool box and the fab kitchen is packed with everything! We visited many local restaurants and had first class food every time, including takeaway pizza from the recommended ‘best in town’ which lived up to expectations! Alex left a fabulous welcome pack on arrival and we arranged for our shopping to be delivered at the villa from the local hyper market, and this was absolutely fantastic as it meant we didn’t have to do any shopping in the first few days! Everything you need is in 5 minutes walk. Fab holiday arranged by a great management company!" - Nicola & family UK July 2018
"Perfect from beginning to end...Casa Caravela is in the perfect location with everything on your doorstep. Home from home. Loved it. Well organised by Alex to make everything simple from beginning to end. Will definitely be back!" - Helen & family UK July 2018
Amazing Place...Really impressed with this villa. Well presented and equipped. The location is quiet but still very close to the centre of town. Theres plenty of space to spread out. Games room, large lounge, 2 patio areas plus small balconies on each room. The grounds and pool are well maintained." - Stephen & family UK July 2018
Everything was good about this place...We've just returned from here and this is one of the best we've stayed in. Welcome pack on arrival. Lovely and clean, so handy for town. Plenty of space to socialise. Mini fridge downstairs is a life saver. Alex from Pac4 was brilliant.Always replied promptly to emails.He popped round to welcome us which is really nice. He even gave us a lift to the supermarket!! Gutted its already booked for our dates next year or we'd of snapped it up.." - Helen & friends UK September 2018
Lovely villa with views over the bay...My family stayed in Casa Caravela for a week in April. The villa was spacious and comfortable with lovely extra touches such as a cupboard of board games and a good selection of books. I had arranged for pool heating and this was an added bonus as the weather was mixed, but we could still enjoy a swim. The real advantage of the villa is it’s position, overlooking Carvoeiro Bay and just a few minutes walk into the town. We didn’t hire a car and found it easy to buy food locally plus we could simply take an Uber to nearby towns such as the lovely Silves and nearby Ferragudo with splendid beach bars. Getting into the villa was straightforward and big thanks to Alex who provided us with a welcome hamper. A lovely week!.." - Pam & Family UK April 2019
Fabulous villa..."Stayed for a week, wished we could have stayed longer. We were a group of four aged 52-86. Excellent location with wonderful views, close to beach, restaurants, bars and shops. This villa has everything you could hope for, superb accommodation and wonderful pool.( with pool and beach towels provided). Lovely sun terraces to sit at and enjoy evening drinks, so tranquil watching and listening to the sea. A great welcome pack provided by Alex who came by to check all okay on arrival. Can’t wait to return, couldn’t fault anything." - Caz & Friends UK May 2019
Absolutely fantastic Villa..."What can we say about this Villa except Wow! Villa was amazing, every thought put in to make our stay Unforgettable. It is big, spacious, has everything you could possibly want to make your stay brilliant. We wanted for nothing! Alex you made our stay so enjoyable & thanks for sorting us out on Saturday for our late flights. Can't recommend this place or Alex enough. Villa was so good we only went out 2 nights out of the 7 & stayed around the pool & ate in. Views are amazing, Carvoeiro is amazing & we had a brilliant holiday. Thanks Alex & thanks to the owners of this fantastic Villa for letting us share your home, (we loved your message at the front of the Guest Book). Would definitely recommend staying here!!" - Tess & Friends UK June 2019
A perfect week..."Selfishly, I don’t want to let you all know how good this villa is so that I can book it whenever I want to! I’ve stayed in many apartments and villas in Carvoeiro but this is by far the best. The location is spot on, with lovely views of the town and sea with everything you need on your doorstep. The villa itself is extremely comfortable and very well equipped with quality furniture and fittings. If I won the lottery I’d try and buy it!" - Amanda & Family UK July 2019
Family holiday of 2 adults 4 children aged 15 to 19..."We stayed at this property last year and it is just perfect in every way. Location couldn't be better - walking distance to everything. Facilities couldn't be better. Alex as always makes the whole transaction very easy. We will be back next year for sure!!" - Helen & Family UK July 2019
Fantastic house with perfect location!..."Our family of 5 really enjoyed our one week stay at Casa Caravela. The house is very spacious and was clean and tidy when we arrived. Casa Caravela is a perfect location to explore the beautiful area around Carvoeiro as well as just a short walk to the restaurants in the village. We also enjoyed an early morning run along the coastal path!!" - Siri & Family, Norway, July 2019
Fantastic villa..."Our family of 6 adults stayed from 25th August for a week, definitely not long enough!! By far the best villa we've stayed at and we've stayed in lots. The is so much space you never feel on top of one another and it's so well equipped they have thought of everything. We didn't bother with a car as everything is close by and Alex arranged airport transfers. Would definitely recommend this villa and hopefully we will return." - John & friends, UK, August 2019
Superb!..."Fantastic villa in a great location. 2 minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shops etc. but peaceful too. So spacious and clean. Highly recommended, can’t wait to return. Thanks Alex!" - Caron & friends, UK, September 2019
Perfect in every way!..."Location was perfect. The views from the balcony were amazing! We watched in awe as the sun set into the sea. The villa was very spacious and clean, plenty of room for all the family. Everything we needed was there. We paid extra for the pool to be heated and it was so good. Alex the manager of the property came to see us and gave us his number to call if we needed anything at all. We’ve stayed in several lovely villas in the past few years but we all voted this to be the best." - Susan & family, UK, October2019
