Colina Branca is a small superbly located complex of well furnished holiday townhouses and apartments with a shared pool, situated just 5 minutes walking distance from the sandy beach, bars, shops and restaurants at the centre of Carvoeiro.

The space

These individually owned townhouses are situated in a rural, tranquil position enjoying splendid sea and countryside views from their roof terrace and spacious balconies, and are only metres from the large communal swimming pool and lush landscaped gardens. The traditional houses have either a double and a twin, or two twin bedrooms, plus z bed or sofa-bed, and can sleep a maximum of 5 people. Some owners prefer to retain the original bathrooms/kitchens and still have traditional style furniture. This is reflected in the lower prices. In the current economic climate, these houses represent excellent value for money. They all have English Sky Free-to-air TV or cable TV.
WiFi is available at an additional charge. Please enquire.

The large elegant living/dining room is furnished to a high standard, with patio doors to the fantastic terrace ideal for al-fresco dining or lounging in the glorious sunshine.

Bedroom one boasts the luxury of an en-suite shower room, and has it's very own private balcony. Bedroom 2 is ideally located adjacent to the family bathroom, and also has a balcony of it's own. The kitchen is well appointed and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

We (4 people) stayed in the beautiful apartment in Carolina Branca. The place offers everything you need (dish washer, washing machine, dryer, soap, towels, coffee machine, plenty of dishes,...) and has two terraces with a spectacular view over Carvoeiro. We really enjoyed the breakfast on the terrace looking at the see. The pool is big and nice but few stairs away. For us it was no problem because we don't mind a little walk. Since the apartments are located on a hill you have to walk a little bit until you are at the beach (5-10 minutes). Communication with Susan is very easy, because she answers fast. If you need anything you get a quick help (for example we couldn't find the hair dryer and she immediately brought us one). Also cleaning once to twice a week is included which is very comfortable. We really recommend the apartment and want to come back to Carolina Branca. The only thing that bothered us was a very strong smell that came out of the drain in one of the bathrooms, which was very annoying. We told the cleaning lady and she knew of the problem and also didn't know what to do. If you also stay in House number 13 you should shut the door in the room to the ensuite bathroom and only use the other (bigger) bathroom.
