Carvoeiro as a destination
Carvoeiro is a traditional, small fishing village, that nestles in a valley between two hills. In summer it is a remarkably busy little place, being the focal point for shopping, wining and dining for visitors of many nationalities, with the biggest selection of restaurants in the area. In the winter it is occupied by the permanent residents and golfers. Carvoeiro is very popular for family holidays as there is such a large choice of self-catering accommodation and has all the things you are likely to want in quite a compact area around the town centre. A lot of the accommodation is in new residential areas on the outskirts as the developments have spread, but it is all in keeping - this isn't an area of high rise hotels and apartment blocks. If you would like to buy, but are undecided about where to buy, consider Carvoeiro, the village for you to have your place in the sun, either for your family holidays, as an investment or for permanent sunshine living. Carvoeiro has managed to retain its timeless charm and traditional values.
