Carvoeiro in the Central Algarve is one of Portugal’s kept secrets.  One of my first impression was that it was a  place where the beach runs into the street.  A street where fantastic restaurants are on the sides.   Very famous for its remarkable golfs courses and the excellent Carvoeiro holiday rentals and the wonderful luxurious Algarve villas in the surrounding countryside.  Some of these villas to rent are fitted out in a sumptuous manner.  Well worth looking at for a large family holiday rental vacation.

As a consequent of all the visitor’s opportunities was found to provide restaurants bars and cafes and the locals were not found wanting.
