Carvoeiro is a fishing village halfway along the Algarve coast, about 45 minutes from Faro Airport. Over the last 15 years, grown to be a sizeable holiday resort. However, it has not lost the intrinsic charm of the place, as the development has been sympathetically done, keeping to low-rise buildings in the traditional Algarvian style. This cosmopolitan resort has a wide selection of restaurants and bars, a few night clubs, boutiques, banks, chemist and local facilities.

There are literally hundreds of restaurants in and around Carvoeiro. Most of them are pretty good, they are usually very child friendly, and the food is generally tasty. Inevitably we've found a few favourites. Essentially they are worthy of inclusion because they are Vegetarian friendly, but also because the food is either different or represents excellent value.
Golf Information Golf packages and pre bookings can be arranged at our local courses Pinta, Gramacho, Alto and Salgados golf. The Algarve is one of Europe's premier golf areas. There are currently twenty-five courses in the space of 100 miles of coastline, with more under construction. All Algarve courses are within one and a half hours' drive of Faro International Airport. Over the last few years the Portuguese Open has been hosted variously at Penina, Vila Sol and São Lourenzo, all of which may be included in the list of top European championship courses. Warm playing conditions and immaculately manicured fairways and greens are the norm in the Algarve. We can send you a price list of the courses and availability to coincide with your holiday.
Had a fantastic family holiday in this wonderful villa.
27th Oct. - 3rd Nov. 2014. Had a fantastic family holiday in this wonderful villa. Came for Dave’s 50th Birthday and arranged a birthday cake for us. The heated pool was a real bonus and we spent many hours in it. Very safe for children. The weather for this time of year has been brilliant and was the icing on the cake. Had a real chill out. Having the villa cleaned and the towels changed midweek was a very nice touch and much appreciated. Had some great meals out, but the best for us was the A Rede Restaurant at the top of the hill. Amazing food and really good atmosphere, made us feel so welcome. Would recommend the villa to anyone.

Throughout the booking, arrival and stay we have enjoyed excellent communication, unrivalled service and above expectation facilities. Casa Valhalla is an exceptional villa with everything to keep our large family of 11 happy, entertained and content throughout. Portugal is a wonderful country to visit and the villa offers the perfect platform to enjoy all it had to offer. Thank you Miguel ( and the team). Your effort and willingness to help and assist added to to this experience. We would readily visit the "Oasis" again..., and again... and have all ready recommended to others. Thank you....

The villa is spacious and immaculately clean. Reasonably well equipped but few oversights. Not enough coffee mugs and chipped China. Need a second bin as well for recycling. Carvoeiro is pleasant enough but you need to choose restaurants before you come and book them well ahead. It's a nice wander into town from Casa Valhalla. We enjoyed our stay and felt we were supported locally.

We had a fantastic holiday. You had everything you could possibly need at the villa. The pool was wonderful and everyone enjoyed it. There is a large grassy area where the children can play football, there is also a little playarea and shoot for the younger children. The villa was very clean and the maid came in twice a week to give it a clean and change the beds. The villa is about 15 to 20 minutes walk for the town centre and the Supermarket which are both about a 15 minute walk from the villa. We had a fantastic 2 week holiday at the villa without any car but would recommend you hire one to see the sites .

We stayed at Casa Valhalla as a group of three families. Our children ranged from 2 - 7 years old. When we arrived at the apartment (greeted by Miguel) it's fair to say we where amazed. The villa is perfect for groups with children who want to relax and have some fun. The outside space is not only plentiful but is packed with things to keep children and adults amused. The house itself is finished to a high standard with quality appliances and has everything you need for everyday living. As with the outside, there is a variety of things indoors to keep everyone entertained including a fully equipped games which we all loved. In summary this house was, in all of our opinions, AMAZING!! Finally I want to quickly say a big thank you to Miguel who looked after us during our stay. He was always at hand and was full of great suggestions and advice on how to maximise our time in Carvoeiro. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would definitely go back.

We had a lovely time at Casa Valhalla. Sorry to be leaving after only a week. Although there were only two of us, it was great to have the extra space…maybe we’ll bring some friends next time, maybe not!
We had some of the best food of our holiday at “Taste” and at “Ele & Ela” in town. We also had a lovely BBQ here - it was great to sit outside and eat. We just got some meat and fish from the Intermarché (and anti-bug candles!)
Would recommend the beach at Ferragudo - it’s very quiet and there are some nice beach bars for grabbing a coffee/ beer/ lunch.
Thanks Howard for welcoming us so late in the evening and sorting the booking out so last minute.
Thanks David & Mandy for keeping such a lovely, well equipped villa!

Thank you for a wonderful mini break, the villa was amazing and never before have we had to ask for the pool to be cooler!
Howard was very welcoming and helpful when required and allowed us to relax and enjoy our stay.
Restaurants in town were amazing, although we would not go back to “The Wolf” due to awful service and not great food. A Rede was our favourite restaurant with great fresh fish.
We will be back !

Thank you for having us at the villa. We’ve all had a fabulous time here as a family and the weather here has been AMAZING. The heated pool was a must have for us as we spent hours there (highly recommended!). Also, the Marinha beach was gorgeous and a boat ride is highly recommended as well. Howard has been brilliant to all of us, when we’ve had an issue, Howard sorted it even on a bank holiday. Furthermore, Primavera Restaurant was a great place to eat.
Thank you very much for having us.

Stunning inside and out!
The villa is set in lovely gardens with a separate BBQ area in a quiet area. We have stayed in several villas in the Vale de Milho/dos Moinhos area and this is the best yet! Great pool area with basketball, kids toys/play area and table tennis so you could never get bored. All bedrooms of a high standard with ensuite. The kitchen is as impressive as it looks in the photos, with everything you could think of provided. The Sagres on tap is a must, approx 1 euro a pint. Approx 15 mins walk to the town centre, 10 mins to the Vale de Milho Golf Club and the Vale de Milho Restaurant. I could go on and on with good points. The only problem we found was we had to leave! Dave and Howard the House Manager were extremely helpful throughout the whole experience, a big thank you to you both!!

We have just enjoyed a fabulous week at Casa Valhalla - the villa is superbly furnished with everything you would need for both adults and young children (we were a group of adults and babies) and we could have happily stayed in the villa all week, although there are many places to visit in the local area.
Would thoroughly recommend Restaurante Onze (11) in Carvoeiro and if you don’t want to venture out then definitely suggest organizing The Chef Affairs to come and cater for you. Howard is extremely helpful and can advise on organizing many activities. Would definitely return if holidaying with friends/ families.

Guests Mr & Mrs Walpole
We were not expecting much when heading out to Carvoeiro for a week over Christmas, other than a relaxing break away with family and plenty to eat and drink. We got all of these and more at Casa Valhalla.
We were met at the property by Dave who showed us round and explained how everything worked. Although there were instructions near to everything such as washing machine, dishwasher, air conditioning/heaters etc. to remind us.
We’d ordered the draught Sagres lager as we were having Christmas Dinner there and a nice cold beer on tap was really nice to have – especially round the pool in the sunshine!
The villa had everything we needed for self-catering and we managed to cook a full turkey Christmas dinner using the double ovens and 5 ring hob. The villa is designed to cater easily for 10 people and it was good to see there was lots of crockery, cutlery and even seating and table space for everyone.
The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms luxurious with the under-floor heating appreciated. There was plenty of bed linen, pillows and blankets for everyone.
The villa had free wifi to keep us all connected – especially with Christmas gifts to set up such as Kindles and iPads. And the Sky TV meant that everyone was kept entertained from the Grandparents to Grandchildren.
The weather was fantastic and we had breakfast/brunch outdoors on the large table on the patio most days. We had a hire car and took some trips out to some beaches but spent much of our time relaxing in the garden during the day. We’d requested the pool be heated for our trip and it was made good use of, along with the hot tub.
We ate out most evenings (it was a holiday after all) and were pleasantly surprised to see how many bars and restaurants were open in Carvoeiro. We’d been out there before for Christmas a few years back, staying at the Tivoli and it had been rather quiet.
We would definitely recommend this villa to others – it certainly is far more reasonably priced and comfortable than accommodating a whole family in a hotel. We would say it was like a home from home – but it has a bit more luxury than we have at home!
Reviewed August 29, 2012 What a stunning villa.Everthing you could wish for not only the position but the facilities it provides for the family.A gated veranda so small children can not get to the pool .Outside barbeque, jacuzzi and a great pool that is checked twice a week no nasty chlorine smell.
Inside was spacious rooms all air conditioned all bedrooms have en suite.
Kitchen fitted out large fridge freezer a small fridge for your bottled beers along with a beer pump which will provide you with 50litres of cold beer (you have to pre order this with the owner well worth while). A great supermarket just 5 mins drive away loads of fresh fish and fruit and veg at very reasonable prices get there earl for the fish We will certainly be going back next year!

Just returned from a week at the Valhalla and had a great time as it was probably the best villa we have stayed in. We were a family of 11 including 4 grandchildren between 7 and 2 and found the the accommodation, the pool and the grounds to be lovely. Very clean and well appointed. Recommend ordering the barrel of beer!
Although the villa is in a quiet area outside of the town we did not need a car and used taxis where necessary for the 5 minute journey into Carvoeiro - about 5 euros each way.
There is a lovely child friendly restaurant within 5 minutes walk Vale do Milho - great food and Fernando a great host.
Reviewed July 25, 2012 You could not ask for more from this villa, it has everything covered. Firstly, it looks exactly like it does in the pictures only better. The location is great, quite quiet but still close to everything and not overlooked by other villas. The surroundings are beautiful, the garden is really well maintained and colourful. We got taxis everywhere, things were walking distance but with a big group it was easier to bundle into taxis and be anywhere in 5 mins. It was no more the 5 euro to Carvoeiro centre and to the Intermarche where we stocked up. Marinha beach is definitely worth a visit as is the restaurant L'Orange.
The pool area was excellent, loungers, parasols and plenty of toys for kids (and big kids) in your group. We were a group of 10 adults and it provided everthing we needed to chill out and have fun. The hot tub is another excellent feature, being slightly secluded by trees it's perfect to chill out in when you've had enough sun. Just down from the pool was the BBQ area which was large and well equipped. The eating area was lovely too.
The villa itself is pretty impressive, the kitchen is massive, plenty room for cooking and most of the utensils etc you would need. The beer tap was a fantastic addition too. There is a large fridge freezer but also another smaller one for overspill. The living room is comfortable and bright. The bedrooms are all really nice, the master was particularly special with it's terrace and sea views. The maid service was handy too.
The service we got from Dave and Mandy was great too, they were quick to answer questions and make sure we had everything we needed. All in all we were really impressed with the villa and hope to return one day soon!
Reviewed July 18, 2012 We were a family group of 3 generations, ages ranging from 14 to 59 and we all absolutely loved the villa, the men especially loving the beer on tap. The villa is luxurious whilst still maintaining a homely, welcoming atmosphere. There are so many little touches that all go to making this the perfect place to stay for a holiday, from the best welcome pack I have ever had, a safe in every bedroom and the brilliant bbq area being just a few. There is plenty of space for everyone to be together either by the pool, in the lounge area and the dining table is brilliant, but there are also plenty of places to escape to too. Carvoeiro is about a 25 minute walk away, or a few minutes drive, and has a lovely little beach and loads of places to eat. We can’t wait to go back!

Fantastic villa with everything very well thought out. Villa was nicely furnished, very well equipped for both children and adults. Our children loved the pool area (all the inflatables were an added bonus!), and the garden area with the table tennis, basketball net, and goal. Adults loved the hot tub! There was never a dull moment! Inside the villa it is gorgeous – kitchen very nicely set up as was each bedroom and the lounge / diner. All in all a beautiful villa which allowed us all to have a super holiday and relax from the second we arrived.
Reviewed June 30, 2012 I arrived back from this villa this evening. Though knackered having travelled with 2 little children, it's a testament to the place that I'm writing this review now.
It really is a superb villa. All the facilities you could ever wish for were there.....I need to replenish my home! We had 5 little children in our group and they loved it. Everything was in great condition and, unusually, it's better than the photos suggest.
The location was good, on the edge of the built up area but also feeling like it's in the countryside. I have to disagree with one reviewer though. If you've had every joint replaced you might think it's not a walk to Carvoeiro, but for everyone else, it's a pleasant 10- 15 minute walk. Carvoeiro is hilly but this villa is as well situated as any.
We will be returning!
Myself,two daughters+husbands and 7 grandchildren enjoyed a very happy,noisy and comfortable holiday.
There was plenty of space inside and outside the villa for all ages to do their own activity or just relax.
We had some great bbqs and long,chatty evenings on the terrace with a glass or two.

We had a fantastic stay in Portugal. The welcome basket of fruit, wine, cheese, milk and more was a pleasant surprise so that we didn't have to dash out to the grocery store. (Even though the market was just 5 minutes away). The accommodations couldn't have been nicer with a superb, well appointed kitchen where we prepared wonderful meals together while enjoying a bottle of local wine. All the conveniences of home plus more! The pool and gardens were lovely and we enjoyed the morning sun on the patio. There is a good selection of restaurants nearby. Accommodations were clean, well maintained and very comfortable! I would return again.

What can I say about this villa! Fantastic I want the Kitchen in my house.! Felt really safe in the area of the villa. It isn't in a resort as such so if you like to walk around on your holidays you definately need a car. We (well the men) got taxi's to and from the Supermarket which was about 10 mins away. Fab Supermarket a bit like Asda has everything you need. We are usually party people but I must say that all three families just didn't need to go anywhere.
We were a party of 12 6 adults and 6 Kids all under 8 years old and quite hyperactive usually. The villa provided us with all we needed. Fabulous heated pool, hot tub, football net and enough room for the boys to play football, separate bbq area, sky tv. What they don't tell you is that there are enough 'left overs' from previous guests to keep you occupied - inflatable toys for the pool, table tennis, board games, books etc. Loads of room so you are not on top of each other. Just can't shout about it enough.
If you are thinking of taking a baby there is even a baby bouncer, baby walker and high chair in pristine condition. The gate from the outside terrace has a bolt on too so younger kids can't get to the pool un assisted.
Fab place to chill and relax with your mates and their kids. Thanks so much David..!! xx

We were a party of 12 6 adults and 6 Kids all under 8 years old and quite hyperactive usually. The villa provided us with all we needed. Fabulous heated pool, hot tub, football net and enough room for the boys to play football, separate bbq area, sky tv. What they don\'t tell you is that there are enough \'left overs\' from previous guests to keep you occupied - inflatable toys for the pool, table tennis, board games, books etc. Loads of room so you are not on top of each other. Just can\'t shout about it enough.
If you are thinking of taking a baby there is even a baby bouncer, baby walker and high chair in pristine condition. The gate from the outside terrace has a bolt on too so younger kids can\'t get to the pool un assisted.
Fab place to chill and relax with your mates and their kids. Thanks so much David..!! xx

My family have been holidaying in Portugal, specifically in Carvoeiro, for the past 10 years. Each year we have rented a different Villa in the surrounding area. Despite being one of the least expensive, Villa Valhalla was the best yet. The Villa benefits from its close proximity to the town, has been rebuilt to a very high standard and is beautifully equipped, ideal for a large family with children. The support staff were highly attentive and helpful without being intrusive in anyway.
I will definitely be returning to Villa Valhalla next year and highly recommend it.

"Superb Villa, we felt so at home and what a view! Great time of the year to come. Warm weather but so peaceful. Good to be near town but not right in the middle of it. Cooked a lot at the villa, it was so well equipped. Ruby loved her cot & high chair. Will be telling everyone & hope to come back soon!"
