Casa Secret, Carvoeiro, Algarve

Property ref: PA908


Casa Secret has spectacular ocean views and is in the countryside close to the small fishing village of Benagil. A long flower bordered drive leads from the wrought iron gates to the villa which is in an elevated position.

The villa is simply and traditionally furnished with an older style, well equipped kitchen. From the open-plan living/dining room there are doors opening onto a shaded terrace with lovely sea views.

Casa Secret has a very well maintained and established garden with pretty flowers and trees. The covered terrace has a table and chairs for al fresco dining and there is also a built-in barbeque. The views from the garden are stunning and there are plenty of loungers and sun umbrellas.

The villa is located just north of the beautiful Praia da Marinha, one of the best beaches in the Algarve, ideal for cliff walks. The beach is small, but very lovely and has a good beach bar. There are plenty of other beautiful beaches scattered along this part of the coast, in our opinion one of the most lovely stretches of the Algarve coast.

The charming fishing village of Benagil is really picturesque and has lots of quaint farmhouses surrounded by pine trees. There are a few good restaurants and menus usually include locally caught fish. For more extensive night life, Carvoeiro is just a ten minute drive (or taxi ride) away.

Carvoeiro, Algarve

The coastal resort of Praia do Carvoeiro is flanked by high cliffs and was, until the 1970s, a sleepy fishing village. Nowadays the steep roads, to the left and right of the main square and town beach, are lined with restaurants and bars. Our villas are scattered around the main resort and also in the many smaller developments that have sprung up in recent years. Areias dos Moinhos was one of the first developments to be built on the edge of Carvoeiro and is a fifteen minute walk from the centre; there is a reception and a tennis court, albeit not championship standard. Cabeça de Pias has a couple of restaurants and is close to Pestana Golf Club with two courses, Vale de Pinta and Quinta do Gramacho. For discounted golf rates visit the Algarve Golf Desk. In Sesmarias, there is a good supermarket, restaurants and tennis courts....

Alfanzina, on the coast to the east of Carvoeiro, is close to the popular Rocha Brava development. Facilities here include a cyber café, a holistic health centre, tennis club and a small gym. Club Atlantico is nearby, with two tennis courts, an excellent Italian restaurant, a communal pool, mini-golf and a children's play area. The beautiful smugglers beach is a short walk (although it is approached by over a hundred steps - not for the faint hearted). The prestigious Carvoeiro Club, to the west of the town, has tennis courts, a gymnasium, a snack bar/coffee shop and Finisterra, with wonderful views, is on the edge of the club. Nearby Monte Carvoeiro has a lively jazz club, supermarket, bars and several restaurants. There is a central square with a fountain and al fresco dining, including an Indian restaurant and a steak house, where diners are provided with hot stones to cook the meat to their taste at the table. There are two water parks and horse riding within easy driving distance and a lively nightlife in the town centre.

Porches became the centre for ceramics and pottery in the 1960s when Patrick Swift set up the first pottery, using original Portuguese designs of past centuries. The original "Porches Pottery" is on the outskirts of the village, in a delightful setting with a good café and you can watch the pottery being hand painted. Porches is home to one of the oldest restaurants in the Algarve "O Leão"; set within the narrow, cobbled streets, it is a beautiful building, with an attractive terrace for dining on hot summer nights. Porches has a chemist, mini-market, post office, several cafés and a couple of restaurants and is a short drive from several lovely beaches including Benagil, Marinha and Albandeira.

Pros
These areas are close to many facilities including water parks, golf courses, shops, bars, restaurants and many beautiful beaches.
Cons
Once again, this is a developing area so some construction work is possible and the restaurants tend to be busy in the height of the summer.
