We had a great time for our vacation. Miguel and his wife were very kind to be waiting to receive us even though it was a stormy night. We were travelling with 2 kids aged 1 yr old and they went beyond to take care of their needs by arranging for baby cots and high chairs. They were also very kind enough to do some basic grocery so we did not have to run to the grocery store when we arrived. The house was very clean and neat as it looks in the pictures. We and the kids had a very memorable vacation. Lots of time was spent in the indoor pool and the swimming pool. Miguel was available on the phone any time we had questions and he was very helpful. It was our first trip to Portugal and we want to be back more often. Loved every part of the experience and made memories which we will cherish for long.

Wonderful, outstanding villa- we enjoyed it with all my family (6 adults, 3 kids) for 5 days in mid january'16. 1. Villa Carlota has its own character, significantly differencing from a lot of faceless apartments with ikea-like furniture. It is very nice designed and carefully maintained, despite it is not very new - it is in perfect shape. 2. Not so easy to find first time - but having gps with geocoordinates made us reach the villa with no problem. The car is essential for staying in the villa 3. The garden is brilliant - 6,000m2 of very nice area covered with fruit trees fed us with fresh and very tasty oranges, tangerines, lemons and avocados. 4. The villa fits 9 persons easily - I can imagine more inhabitants. We used 4 bedrooms in main building and haven't used one in summer house (or Ingrid Bergman pavilion). 5. Summer house is something. We, especially kids, spent much time there playing pool or poker, swimming in indoor pool and preparing grilled mains for common dinners. 6. Very nice pool area with outdoor jacuzzi, having beautiful view to Silves valley. 7. Villa also has fitness room and equipped with number of bikes - bike trip to Silves is essential. 8. All necessary facilities are in. So, highest mark and recommendations to everybody.
