If you like your holiday accommodation small and friendly, then the low-rise, holiday village-style set-up at Colina Village in Carvoeiro will suit you and your family down to the ground. This three-star, self-catering development has a great online reputation and a great setting in one of the Algarve’s nicest resorts.
Carvoeiro’s sandy beach is around 2km from the Colina Village, which spreads out around a big pool. There’s an indoor pool too, and a separate kids’ pool. The little one’s have a mini playground too.
While Colina Village is self-catering there’s plenty in the way of facilities for guests. There’s a bar by the pool so you can chill out with cocktails in the sun. Reception staff will rent you a bike. There are games, inside and out including a tennis court.
The apartments are in great condition. All of them have air conditioning/heating and a great standard of kitchen facilities. There is no WiFi in the apartments, but it’s free in public areas around the complex.
Carvoeiro has become a popular resort, though its fishing village roots are still very visible. There’s a small, sheltered town beach – with water sports and diving schools - off a pretty little village with a classic Mediterranean square at its heart. You should be able to sort out all of your shopping needs here.
Walkers will love some great cliff-top paths around the resort, including to a ruined 17th-century fort.
If you’re with the kids then there are water parks within easy tripping distance at Lagoa and Alantarilha. The Zoomarine sea life park is another family friendly outing.
More adult, is the town of Silves, probably one of the most scenic in the whole Algarve, with its lovely hilltop castle and boat trips departing from its pretty river front.
A great base for exploring and a great base for sitting back and relaxing, Colina Village is available now at great prices when you book with Loveholidays.com.
