Within walking distance there are 2 mini markets and a coffee shop. A wider selection, including small boutiques and gift shops, can be found in the centre of Carvoeiro, a short drive away. The local municipal daily fruit, vegetable and fish market is held once every month in the neighbouring town of Lagoa.

Bars and restaurants

There are 2 restaurants a short walk away, whilst there is a wide variety of traditional and international restaurants and bars in the centre of Carvoeiro. Nearby Portimão, which faces Ferragudo on the other side of the Rio Arade estuary, is one of the Algarve's largest towns. There are traditional sardine restaurants to sample, an interesting old town, a splendid marina and a cinema. If you are looking for nightlife on your Algarve villa holiday, Praia da Rocha is a bustling resort just beyond Portimão. It has a huge beach and all kinds of bars, clubs and entertainment.


Carvoeiro has its own sandy beach and Praia Grande can be found in the neighbouring town of Ferragudo. To the east of Carvoeiro is Armação de Pera, which also has a long sandy beach and promenade.

Places of interest

The traditional old village of Pera is about 11 miles from the villa, with its church, typical narrow streets and small cottages - a taste of the real Algarve on the doorstep! Alternatively, the historic city of Silves, one of the Moorish capitals of the Algarve, is worth a visit with a cathedral, castle and museum. Lagos is about 30 minutes away by car - a charming historic town with a laid-back ambience and attractive marina.


Gramacho is the closest golf course to the villa, which is just a couple of miles away. Alternatively, the very popular Salgados golf course is approximately 15 miles away, which is rated amongst the best in Portugal.

Gramacho Course - Carvoeiro
The Former No1 player Nick Price has teamed up with the well known golf course architect Ronald Fream to create a uniquely designed 18 hole course with 27 varied greens. Golfers can play the same course several times with different greens and new challenges. The design technique has positioned the greens and protective bunkers so that an 18 hole round is a genuine challenge. The positioning of the tee markers helps to increase this variety still further. As in the case of the neighbouring Pinto Course this course is maintained at tournament standard all the year round. Although the course is designed in the style of Nick Price, the wonderful characteristics remain on the site from the boulder outcrops and dry stone walling to the fig, carob and olive trees. These have been complemented by artfully positioned lakes and bunkers. These hazards combined with the design of the greens and fairways result in a challenging but attractive course. At the end of the round experienced golfers will be able to confirm that they have played a great course.

Vale da Pinta golf course
Architect Ronald Fream has used the natural valleys and hillocks to great effect with nearly all of the century-old olive trees preserved.

Deep greens are protected by 59 bunkers and five sets of tees. For each hole allow for different skill levels.

The beautiful third is a dog-leg left, set out from the raised tee. Those trying to cut corners through trees and bunkers will find themselves faced with a treacherous split level green.

Villa Barbara Customer Reviews

Margaret Craggs, 02-Apr-2016

We loved the villa and hope to stay there again.

Gary Paul, 28-Sep-2013

The villa was lovely. The outside area was amazing and the pool table and table tennis table was a bonus! The pool was a nice temperature and over all we absolutely loved our stay in this villa. The only thing we wish we did differently was to hire a car as the big supermarkets where a long walk away but all in all we loved it. Definitely recommend!

Derek Smith, 20-Jul-2013

The Villa and the holiday were excellent. The washing machine was broken by what I assume to be the previous occupant. This was replaced by the owner by the end of the first week, so even this was quickly dealt with. Overall a super holiday.
