We are booked to visit Vila Nova in July 2003 , it is certainly reassuring to read such excellent accolades for previous visitors. Has anyone any tips on the best local beaches and places to visit locally ? The food and hospitality sounds superb at the vila nova , we just cant wait to get there ! Suzanne and family

We have returned from Vila Nova, Carvoeiro, again and had a wonderful time. Isabel and Anibel Raposo who own and run the Vila Nova Restaurant could not of been more help and more friendly. the food in the Restaurant gets even better each time we go. A must for anyone wanting a hassle free time.

We have just returned from our second visit to you.

We had a fantastic time and yet again would recommend it to anybody we spoke to.

All you staff were so helpful and everything was done with a smile.

We had several delicious meals in your restaurant and the service and value for money was outstanding. Alexandra really enjoyed herself. You seem to really like children and they go away feeling special.

We also took advantage of the facilities on offer during the day while we were all sunning ourselves i.e. Drinks, food and of course the obligatory ice creams!!

You were a great help when we needed to purchase our tickets for the various outside attractions. It certainly helped greatly.

Nothing seems to have changed since our last visit and as soon as we arrived we felt at home.

We made some good friends by the pool and not one of them had any word of complaint. In fact a lot of the people we spoke to were also on their second, third, fourth visit to you so that says alot.

We very much look forward to our return to you. Everything seems so boring and back to normal now we are back home. Roll on our next holiday!!

Keep up the good work.

Love to you all,


Ken, Maria & Alexandra Healy

You cannot get a more attentive service than the one offered by Anibel and Isabel at Vila Nova. Whether you are staying for a holiday at one of the apartments, or have your own apartment which you let out, nothing is ever too much trouble. Whilst Anibel skilfully manages the friendly Bar and Restaurant - which serves excellent food, Isabel and Alex always greet you with a smile and are there to help with tours, trips, taxis or technical hitches!! The Minimarket is very convenient, being on the Complex, rather than having to go to the Village- and is far more reasonable than most of the other Alisuper in the area.

Anibel and Isabel (and all their staff), work very hard - nad they justly deserve the rewards of repeated custom from all their satisfied clients.

Keep up the good work. See you very soon

We stayed at Vila Nova for the 4th time 18/07/02 - 01/08/02 and it continues to live up to our expectations. The food, weather, accommodation, people (Annibal, Isabel, Ana) are all great. Vila Nova now feels like home! We hope to be back in 2003.

Had a great family holiday there in July/August ! Wonderful location, very attractive and clean facilities throughout. A taxi back up the hill at the end of the evening in the village only costs around £2.50 for 4 ! Andy.

Just a quick one - I don't suppose the "Bill and Maureen" above in 02-07-00 comments are Bill and Mo who add ground floor apartment next door to Craig and Maggi?

If so, Hi from Gavin (Craig's son) - any tips on best accommodation in Carvoeiro for me, my wife and 3 year old? Vila Nova, of course?!

Cheers, Gav

We (Greg, Karen, and Eliot) have just got back from our second holiday at Vila Nova and are already planning the next visit. The apartments are spacious, clean, and well equipped and on top of that there is the restaurant nearby. The food is excellent with a menu to suit all tastes and it is very reasonably priced (Try the 'special fish'). Paulo and Sergio are very friendly and keen to help and ease the pain of being beaten by Portugal (Euro 2000). Eliot says a big OBRIGADO to you all.

Paulo, please say hello to Eric,Vicky and the boys who are still there at the time of writing. It's cold in England!

We have spent many enjoyable evenings at Vila Nova Restaurant ~ the food is excellent ~and the hosts, Anibal and Isobel are delightful. We are always made to feel most welcome. As an aside, Isobel is absolutely wonderful at Villa Management nand seems to know where to get everything for your villa, as well as being able to get it for you in 24 hours ~which can be some feat in the Algarve. She is well worth calling if you are not happy with your current management arrangements.

To Dave who is going to the Vila Nova in July.

We stayed at Vila Nova in March and found it very good. We hope to go there again some year. It's just a 10-15 minutes walk from the centre of town. We could see the ocean from our balcony. Our apartment was great with lots of space and a full kitchen. Good restaurant...and very reasonable.

Re Villa Nova, have stayed at Villa next to complex, the restaurant on site is exellent, try the portuguese style steak - superb, bit of a hike into town, but its all down hill, getting back is the problem, very, very steep hills and a 20 minute walk, nearest shop at least 10 mins away, which if you dont have a car is a problem, especially on a hot day!
