The first Algarve Senior Living locations selected are set in a uniquely beautiful setting on the outskirts of Carvoeiro, with both sea views and expansive country views stretching all the way to the modern bridge over the Arade River and the Monchique mountains. The exceptionally appointed properties closest to the ocean face south-west and have wonderful sea views. Some 1-bed units closest to the ocean benefit from two balconies, one facing the sea and the other the pool, perfect for catching morning and afternoon sun (or shade)! This location also benefits from wonderful vistas over the protected natural landscape which borders the entire site to the west. Bird chatter and the scurry of the occasional rabbit are the sounds which are most likely to disturb you! These units are stylishly decorated and benefit from underfloor heating in the bathrooms. They convey understated luxury. The stunning country view homes operate as a group site as a minimum number of occupants is required to ensure that the site facilities such as restaurant are open for guests. Units have been repainted in 2014. The properties, unpretentiously furnished in a rustic fashion will appeal to guests who appreciate informality. The single floor and double storey 1 and 2-bed apartments, townhouses and semi-detached villas (of approximately 55-60 m² and 110-130 m², respectively) offer a range of options to the longer-stay visitor. All properties have wireless internet access and are serviced weekly (including a weekly change of linen). Across the two sites there is a range of facilities, including sporting options such as tennis and lawn bowls, restaurants with bar areas, and many quiet areas to relax. These are complemented by a range of activities, organised by Algarve Senior Living, some of which are listed here. Guests can walk from the sites along coastal paths with stunning views over the ocean, to the beautiful Caneiros beach about a mile away.
