Description from owner


Casa Branco Grande is a 3 bedroomed villa located in the picturesque fishing village of Carvoeiro on Portugal's Algarve coast. The villa is ideal for families or groups of golfers looking to get away for some sun.

The villa is on two floors and possesses a private pool. Downstairs there's a large open plan living space which consists of dining and living areas.

The dining area has seating for six. There are fantastic reclining sofas and large LCD TV with SKY TV. There's also an open fire for those cosy nights in.

The living area opens on to the pool through shuttered French doors. By the pool you'll find sun loungers and patio furniture - useful when you get the BBQ fired up!

If you want to cook inside, the newly refitted kitchen is large and modern and has a full compliment of pots, pans, cutlery etc to meet all your needs.

The three bedrooms are light and airy and all have their own bathroom which have also been refurbished for 2012. Towels and bed linen are all provided

A large drive provides parking for 2 cars.

Getting around

Walking from the villa to Carvoeiro beach / town takes around 15mins. Supermarkets are a similar distance but there are shops and facilities in Monte Santo and Quinta do Paraiso where you can pick up some basics. Typically, we walk down to the beach and take a taxi back up at a cost of around Eur5. A great pub to go to is the Jailhouse, Dave there is a great host and he plays live music most nights.

Interaction with guest

While both my sister Sally and I are available over the phone or email, our manager Patricia is available on the ground to ensure that guests can get in and respond quickly in person if there are any problems.

“Lovely villa in a quiet location”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2019

We had a lovely week staying here, the villa was perfect for our group which included young adults. Having a bathroom per couple was fantastic, it gave everyone their own privacy while still being together in one house. Maria (the maid) was lovely and kept the villa immaculate. We didn't hire a car and found it easy to walk to most places. We used Uber's for trips to the supermarket, waterpark and a few late night returns. These were really cheap and arrived in minutes. The area was really quiet and we had everything we needed for a lovely relaxing holiday.

Response from the owner Thank you Sharon, glad you had a great stay!

“Good villa, but a little dated”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2019

Good location with a 20 min walk to the local town, although the steep hill makes a taxi back advisable (approx. 5-7 EU). Maria, the maid was delightful, as was Pat the villa manager. The very practical welcome pack when we arrived late with hungry children was much appreciated and a lovely touch. Overall, the villa is very spacious and the kitchen well equipped, having Sky and good WIFI was a also an advantage. There are a few points however, that others have made on other reviews, that we would agree with, whilst the pool is great, it is very deep which could be problematic with children. Our kids are strong swimmers but not being able to touch the floor makes "playing" in the pool a little difficult, although great for their diving practice ! The villa also feels a little dated and could do with a refresh, curtains, cushions etc need replacing. Also worth pointing out that the beds are extremely hard, to be honest little more than a mattress on a board, and for us very uncomfortable. Worth noting too that the villa has no air conditioning which was a problem in the July heat.

Response from the owner Many thanks for your feedback Ruth. I strive to provide a great space for guests, and feedback like this is just what I need to keep the villa up-to-date. New beds and soft furnishings are in process and aircon is being explored. I hope you can return to enjoy the upgrades next year. Paul

“Spacious, well equipped villa”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2018

We had a lovely 2 week stay at this villa which was in a quiet location and spacious enough for our two families. The new bathrooms and kitchen are modern and clean, the kitchen was well equipped. We were greeted by Patricia who was very friendly and left a lovely welcome basket. It was a pleasant 15/20 minute walk to the centre with its many restaurants, shops and evening entertainment. Part of the walk back was up a steep hill but we all found Sangria and ice cream helped! We also stayed in a few nights and made use of the BBQ, buying some lovely meat from the Intermarche butcher. Maria, the maid, was very friendly and came twice a week, there were plenty of towels in all the bathrooms and some for the pool too. Sky as a big plus for the sport and general channels and a bonus that it was in English. All in a all a very relaxing holiday.

Response from the owner Many thanks for your kind words. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and time in Carvoeiro

“Excellent for young family and grandparents”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2016

This is a lovely villa just suitable in every way for a family with young baby, preschool child and grandparents. Lovely setup, well equipped and so quiet with just a 20 minute walk into town. There was an excellent resturant, mini supermarket and playground nearby. The addition of wifi and sky TV was also a bonus. A very nice welcome pack was greatfully received and Patricia the villa manager and Maria the cleaner were very helpfull and friendly. Could not wish for any more and would love to come back as this was a great holiday!

Response from the owner Glad you enjoyed your holiday Annette. Thanks for choosing us. Paul
