We stayed for the last week in May, half Term week, to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. It is a wonderful house for a big family get-together with lots of space to allow for quiet time, although the focus of the week was around the lovely swimming pool. It is 5 star standard and even our 18 month old Freddie had his own bedroom, bathroom and private terrace! It's very easy to book, with Sam providing information and then Mario there to help when we arrived and throughout the holiday. Slide&Splash nearby was the great attraction for the youngsters and we enjoyed Julio's restaurant just along the road. We would just love to go again - a very special place.
Sam - thank you for an amazing stay. Your Casa Le Roque is beautiful. The Hamper was very welcoming and our congratulations cake was a lovely gesture, very yummy too! We booked last year and through that time you kept in contact, giving me lots of recommendations for our upcoming Wedding. A perfect Host.
We held our wedding at Le Roque with our family and a few close friends all staying for a week. What a truly amazing Villa, words and pictures cannot describe how truly beautiful It is and the most perfect setting for our Wedding, memories and amazing pictures all of us will have forever.
Bon Bon Catering provided our wedding breakfast. They served, fed and watered us well on our day. They even set up the chairs for our ceremony which was very much appreciated.
Le Roque is fully equipped, so no need to go anywhere except for supplies and to see the beautiful beeches. We only went out 1 night for a meal, but couldn’t wait to get back and relax. Our group age ranged from 2-76 years, everyone commented that they had never been on such a relaxed holiday and laughed so much. There was so much space, you could hide away on one of the beautiful terraces, games room or cinema room, so something for everyone.
Supermarkets, restaurants, beach are within walking distance. You can even get lovely take away pizza’s from Mons Lisa. Hiring a car gives you more scope to visit the larger supermarkets and to go into Carvoiero town, but there are plenty of Taxis, Mario is very helpful with anything you need or want to know. We also used him for all our transfers.
We will definitely be back soon! Thank you again for making our Wedding day and stay perfect.

Sam, I wanted to say an absolutely massive thank you, firstly for having such an utterly amazing villa, which was out of this world, secondly for all your help in the run up to our trip and thirdly for the wine, the AMAZING cake and all the little extras you left for us to enjoy. It was without a doubt the most special place each and every one of us have ever visited.
We loved all the seating areas, the roof top terrace, the views, the sun loungers, pool, music system... absolutely everything! The villa was absolutely spotless on arrival, and the attention to detail with decor, fixtures and fittings was just beautiful. You really have a great flair for interior design.
We used a pizzeria called Mona Lisa, who came in to cook us authentic pizzas one night, and At De Bruin who you recommended was the icing on the cake, the BBQ was the best we have ever had, and they were so professional, and the food was super! We felt like we were rich and famous having such a treat.
Mario was fantastic, so friendly, and explained everything swiftly yet was so informative. He contacted me during our stay to check everything was ok, which was so nice.
We are already planning our next trip to come back to Le Roque, as to be honest I don’t think we will ever find anywhere as fabulous!

We have just returned back from the most amazing stay for my friends 40th birthday. 5 stars does not do the villa justice. It is high end luxury with special touches that make the stay feel really personal. Sam the owner was so helpful and put us in touch with a chef to come in and cook, Mario who was at hand to help out and transfers from the airport and she even organised a cake for the birthday girl, which was delicious.
We literally could not fault anything about it and feel that now any trip will be very poor in comparison. Thanks again for such a memorable weekend which will be extremely hard to beat.
Having just returned from a week at Le Roque we are all struggling to cope with being back to reality!!
Based on the photos alone our group of two families were both very much looking forward to our trip but what the photos fail to properly convey is the sheer scale of the property - it really is huge.
I can't recall the last time I really needed the guided tour of a rental property - I sometimes felt like asking google maps for the quickest route to the pool.
The property is fully loaded with everything you could think of - my usual complaint of insufficient crockery/cutlery/towels etc was never going to be aired here with a large and properly equipped kitchen. Throw in the couple of large TV spaces, the pool table, table tennis table and large heated pool and the fact that the weather wasn't as good as we might have hoped for was never an issue, particularly for the kids.
Throw in the lovely restaurants within walking distance (Julias & Alfanzina were fantastic though I'd give the Lighthouse a miss) and everything really was catered for.
An absolute gem, I really do look forward to my next stay at Le Roque which will hopefully be sooner rather than later.

We had a wonderful time in Portugal last week, which was in large part due to the beautiful villa "Le Roque"! We are a family of 10 adults and 2 small children and we couldn't stop commenting on how wonderful the place is. There is an abundance of space and things to do around the house. We spent our days swimming, lounging by the pool, playing pool / ping pong, having amazing chef-made dinners on the upper terrace, playing cards well into the night in the wonderful covered sitting area in the backyard by wood fire... It's a shame we didn't stay for a few more weeks because there were just so many nice lounging areas scattered all over the property that we didn't even get to. The villa is perfectly located, beach within walking distance and a few of us played golf daily on the par 3 course directly located behind the house. The owner & caretaker also left us with plenty of recommendations for things to do in the area and a detailed instruction manual for the house. This villa is great for both a large group of friends who want to be able to spend some time on their own too or, like us, a family that wants to spend a lot of time together. Kids will love the swimming pool and all the huge TVs around the house. All spaces are big and clean and we had plenty of towels, which were replenished halfway during the week. Together with the beautiful weather, Le Roque and its owners made our stay unforgettable. We hope to return next year!

There were 10 of us who stayed here for a week and this villa exceeded all of our expectations! I vacation with these friends every two years and this was definitely the best villa we stayed in to date. It was clean and the grounds were amazing! There were so many places to go outside of your bedroom if you need a bit of solitude. So you never felt like you were on top of each other. The outdoor gazebo, outdoor bed, pool, and rooftop terrace were all gems. The kitchen is modern and had everything we needed, which was great since we had a bunch of cooks in the group. The location is also great! It is a 10-15 min walk to the beach, 10 min walk to the nearest grocery store, and there are a few good restaurants only a 10 min walk away as well. The property manager, who I believe was named Mario was such a great help. He helped arrange some of the transportation to and from the villa for some of my friends. The villa really made all of us feel like we had a real vacation. The only problem was I wish I could have stayed a week longer :).

The photographs of Le Roque do not exaggerate in any way - it is a stunning, fully palatial villa, in a great location. We were a family group with very young children and also older members with mobility issues and it worked perfectly for all. All rooms are vast, with more than enough space for cots. Having so many bathrooms, all of which were large enough to accommodate those with mobility issues, was great, as when deciding who had which bedroom we were all spoilt for choice. It is often misleading when written that a car is not needed, but in this case, it's true. There are shops and multiple restaurants in very easy walking distance, just a couple of minutes away. We are already planning our next trip as it couldn't have been more perfect. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We have just returned from an amazing week at Le Roque. The whole place is sumptuous. There is so much space and we all felt thoroughly spoilt. Loved it!!
This villa more than lives up to all of it's descriptions and the photos hardly do it justice. My family group was 13 strong with an age range of 4 to 74 . The accommodation and facilities suited everybody extremely well. There was ample space for everyone to disappear and have their own space in the house or garden or, as more often happened, join in activities together. The facilities easily match the size of the accommodation with, for example, there being enough sunbeds for everyone. Another thing much appreciated by the mothers in the party was the provision of towels for the pool which saves so much space with the packing. The pool was large and with the heating gave hours of comfortable fun even in a cool May. Even the pool maintenance man discreetly carried out his task early in the morning. Mario, the agent, met us at the promised time and gave an exhaustive tour and explanation of everything. We had no cause to contact him as everything worked perfectly but have no doubt he, or the owners, would have helped with anything. The welcome pack was nicely selected and the owners even left a surprise birthday cake for one of my group which was more than big enough for our whole party. The location is ideal being within easy walking distance of 7 or 8 restaurants and a medium size supermarket. Like everything else in the published details of the villa the description of distances is accurate including the walking distance to the beach. Parking is easy at the villa with easy access through the imposing automated gates . Room enough for our 3 cars and plenty more. The wifi was effective in every nook and cranny of the whole site and the other electronic devices worked whenever needed although the outdoor facilities took priority. We couldn't make use of all the sitting, dining and drinking areas as everyone tended to migrate to the large communal areas. The new BBQ facilities got plenty of exercise when we didn't amble up the road to the great local restaurants. At night the garden became illuminated with the pool lights and the never ending variety of fairy and spot lights. The whole garden and house are beautifully designed, furnished and maintained. My group could not think of anything that they would have added.
I have stayed in this villa twice, and will definitely be going back. The first time I was pregnant and it was the most amazing relaxing time. The pics dont do it justice, it is out of this world! The second time I was with friends and our evenings and nights were filled with table tennis, snooker, card games (the surround sound music system is amazing!). It is expensive, however, both times we drove 5 minutes to Lidl and filled the fridge for the week. So although the villa is expensive, we cooked for ourselves (on the outdoor bbq). I think everyone deserves a little bit of luxury, so its worth spending the extra to stay in such an amazing place. The pool is also heated. The huge TV room at the top of the villa came in very handy for the lads to watch the boxing/football in the evenings also. There was a group of us and on arrival Mario met us at the airport with a mini van to bring us straight to the villa. Everything was just so easy ! Book it, you will not regret it !

Our party of 12 stayed for a week in this luxurious villa. All of the rooms were lovely with large, sumptuous bathrooms. The living spaces were ideal for large numbers, allowing peace and quiet if required. We ate outside everyday making use of the BBQ and the extremely well equipped kitchen. The pool and gardens were ideal giving much needed shade when needed. Good location for the beach and for restaurants within walking distance. We would highly recommend this villa.
We are a family of 14 celebrating a 70th birthday. We were very please with the property - the pictures did not do it justice. The sleeping accommodations were comfortable, clean and rooms were a nice size with plenty of closet space - bathrooms were large and well equipped with nice showers. The grounds were maintained beautifully and the pool was well taken care of. The manager was nice and explained everything very thoroughly. It is walking distance to the beach and a couple nice restaurants. I would definitely recommend this Villa especially for a large group. The owner left of a care package which was sincerely appreciated. Simmons Family, Scotts, Michigan
We had some terrific 10 days in this great villa. The house is just beautiful and well maintained. Everything is even better than on the pictures. Both, Mario and Sam have been really nice and helpful,- thanks again. Beach within short walking distance. -We would love to come back, soon.
Le Roque is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in! Our family of 8 adults and 2 kids spent a wonderful week there in May. Not only is the location perfect for visiting the stunning Algarve, the villa is perfect in itself. Sam was extremely helpful in organising everything, helping to book a yoga instructor and offering to help with car hire. Mario did a fantastic job of showing us round the wonderfully massive villa, where we encountered another room at every turn. The standard at Le Roque is LUXURIOUS. Everything is finished to the highest standard imaginable, and if any room doesn't have an ensuite, it has it's private bathroom immediately next to it. The kitchen was large, and the coffee machine and icemakers were in constant use. The size can not be over-emphasised - with 10 of us staying there we never felt on top of one another. Although we had hired cars to get about, but mostly wanted to stay in the villa, lounging around the pool, reading on the rooftop, relaxing on the outdoor bed or simply sitting in the Moroccan den with the sun going down, finishing off the last of the evenings barbeque with another bottle of wine. There are literally dozens of restaurants to choose from within a small area, and you can walk to several in just a few minutes. The beach is only 5 or minutes away, and a short car journey will let you go kayaking, scuba diving or buggy driving in the hills. I can honestly state that Le Roque exceeded our expectations in every way and when we return to the Algarve we will be doing everything we can to stay there again.

I visited Le Roque in 2013 with a group of friends from all over the world and some of them have returned since, I thought it was about time I did so myself. This time we traveled as a family with my partner and little girl, along with two other families also with children. Le Roque has not lost any of its magic,absolutely stunning and immaculate in every way, if anything it has got even better with some nice new additions such as the two 70 inch 4k tvs. The booking was a breeze as usual with the owner being perfectly professional, I would definitely advise using the villa manager for the airport transfers in his lovely vehicles. Make sure you make time to do the clifftop walks just outside the villa from Carvalho beach to Centeanes beach the views are amazing. Carvoeiro itself is great and with the new board walk its great for a walk along the clifftops from algar seco to carvoeiro beach even with a baby buggy. There are some very nice bars / restaurants within walking distance as well as mini market just along the road, we have had a great stay and are looking forward to booking another return visit, THANKS AGAIN !!

Really cannot say much more than my previous review but the fact we revisited the following year I suppose says it all. This place just gets better & better which is why our last visit was only for 5 days as it was fully booked and we were unable to get a full week. As per our first visit in 2015 the owners, manager & maids were a dream to deal with. The villa is perfect, the location great and Carvoeiro just keeps on improving whilst still retaining it's charm. My wife told me not to put another review on or we won't get in for our next visit (but I'm safe, we have already booked it!!)
We ( eight women!) stayed at the gorgeous villa in October 2016. Its hard to describe how absolutely drop dead gorgeous this villa is. Check out the photos (although the real deal is even more stunning than the photos). When we arrived it was all ready for us, spotless with even a welcome basket. The owner and property manager were promptly responsive to our many questions and requirements before our trip and once we arrived. The location is great. There were three restaurants from casual dining to higher end within walking distance. Highly recommend!
We stayed at Le Roque during the first week of September 2016 for a special family holiday, the party size being 11 adults and a toddler. We were all very excited to see the villa as the owner's listing and previous reviews looked incredible. In the months leading up to our holiday, Sam the villa owner and Mario the property manager had provided much help and advice and had booked car hire, airport transfers and a boat trip on our behalf. They had also recommended local caterers, a yoga teacher and a musician who were all top class. They also provided details of an English language online shopping website which proved to be very useful as we were able to pre-book a very large delivery ready for when we arrived. The villa surpassed expectations and is incredibly impressive - the description in the owner's listing and in previous reviews are not exaggerated. The owners have not overlooked anything in the design of the villa and have thought of everything you could possibly need in a comfortable holiday property. From the huge modern kitchen with coffee maker, ice machine and wine fridge, to the games room with pool table, the large family tv lounge, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms and impressive entrance hall, each room exudes style and class. The outside space is vast and equally stunning, all centred around the pool - lawn areas, lovely bougainvillaea and olive trees, huge garden lounge with great sound system, comfortable loungers and all with very handy access to a kitchen, cocktail bar and wine fridge! There are so many special features including the roof top lounge, outside terraces for each bedroom and poolside shower room. At night the whole outside space is decorated with automatic lighting including fairy lights in the trees making the villa look magical. From the mid-week maid service to the generous welcome pack, help in restaurant reservations and friendly help and support, a big thank you to Sam and Mario for making this special place into an incredible holiday experience.

My husband & I stayed at Villa Le Roque at the end of August with our three older sons & girlfriends, my sister & brother in law with their two children along with our parents. So this villa had to be 'the one' On arrival we were taken aback at how fabulous it was, more so than the pictures had shown. Whilst walking up the drive through the huge gates, glancing over to the pool and gardens I had butterflies in my stomach - this villa was amazing!! Beautiful bedrooms & bathrooms most ensuite with private areas to chill & relax. Often 'lost' people - we never felt on top of each other as there are two kitchens & two lounges. We loved the music system located in the 'pool' room which also played in the outside garden room too if you wanted (just took turns with the genre played). Some of us even found a little time to enjoy the huge top of the range TV in the main loung with very compy sofas, enough for a large group to chill together. The pool showers and toilet were fabulously handy too, enough sunbeds for everyone, so no having to get up early to put your towels on! Added bonus - all towels and pool towels were provided along with bathrobe. The kitchen had everything you would need including wine cooler, coffee machine & ice making machine. Even with such a beautiful kitchen & a large BBQ outside we only managed to eat one BBQ meal at the villa as there were so many good places to eat within walking distance or a short taxi ride into the main town. The lovely beach is literally 450mtrs down the road, there is also a beach bar for snacks, icecream & drinks. Mario the villa manager was very helpful showing us around the villa & arranging our very reasonably priced transfers for both parties arriving and departing at seperate times. The booking was very smooth via the owner Sam who was very helpful and answered any questions we had (thanks for the lovely welcome pack) All in all we can highly recommend this villa - we would love to go back if we are in the Algarve again. Top class, top fixtures and fittings - stunning!!
When you book online you have to be very careful. The pictures often overstate the property. This is NOT true of Le Roque. I brought a group of 6 couples here earlier this month and we all felt this was the best villa we have even rented. The rooms were all beautiful as were the bathrooms. The property however was even more spectacular. Seemed that even after staying a week there was a new place to discover everywhere you turned. We had such a great time at the villa we preferred to stay home rather than going out to explore the surrounding towns. We barbecued 2 nights and had a very good meal cooked by the crew from Bon Bon restaurant. Mario who is the property manager was helpful and Sam and John, the owners couldn't have been nicer.
Just back from a most relaxing week here with family. We used transfer taxis (for 6 and 8 passengers) organised by villa manager Mario - clean, air conditioned & well driven for 75 euro each way. On arrival, we were hugely impressed. This villa catered for absolutely everything. The photos are spot on, it's exactly what you get. So much space to either get together or just have a bit of 'me' time. Wifi was great and the lounge / cinema room with Netflix & Sky were welcomed by the younger members of our group. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely, the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We paid to have the pool heated so it was a lovely temperature & big enough to swim some lengths. We were left with a welcome pack (thank you!) and there is a shop just up the road for daily provisions. The local shop is expensive but we took a taxi (8 euro each way) to the much cheaper supermarket to stock up although we didn't cook very much as there are quite a few restaurants within walking distance. Just beware that when they bring you bread etc. as you're browsing the menu that these are 'covers' and you will be charged per head (from 2 to 5.5 euros each) but can say you don't want them. The beach is a 10 minute walk down the hill, We visited it a coupe of times; hired a brolly and ate lunch at the very reasonable cafe there. If we went to the region again we'd hire a car to be able to get around better - plenty of space at the villa to park a few cars. In all, it really is a top class, private & secure plot with everything you might need for a perfect holiday - highly recommended.
We wanted accommodation that could take the whole family with ages ranging from 16 to 82. It was a special celebration and we wanted the accommodation to be luxurious and that everyone had their own room and bathrooms. We saw La Roque advertised which was in a location that the family had previously visited and La Roque seemed to have everything that we required. My husband and I are seasoned travellers and stay in many 5 Star plus Hotels/Accommodation and, on many occasions, are underwhelmed and disappointed. However what can I say about La Roque? The home exceeded our expectations in every way. The property is finished to a very high standard with all rooms being different with unique features and having beautiful bathrooms so that no-one was disappointed with the room they were allocated, which is often not the case on larger groups. The property has large grounds with many areas where you can go and spend some private time. There is a beautiful pool with an outside BBQ/party area, all of which are immaculately maintained. The owners and host who showed us around the property were exceedingly helpful and accommodating and I could not recommend this property enough and we will definitely be returning and would rate this as a 5 Star plus in terms of accommodation
We are an extended family from 4 different countries who had to choose a place in europe to celebrate our fathers 70th birthday ,and unusually for us we all agreed we had chosen the perfect spot . As soon as we arrived at the majestic entrance we sensed we were onto a winner .Inside is superb the decor is pure class , the main lounge is fantastic and its hard to chose whether to look out the french doors down the picturesque valley towards the sea or watch the huge 70inc TV. Normally when we all meet up we have a right old barney as who has which room NOT here every bedroom and bathroom has a different style and all are beautiful. Bedroom 1 has great outside marble bath and its terrace connects to the twin bedroom terrace ideal to keep the kids close but private lockable door between . The lower ground has a great games room with another 70inch TV , pool table and cocktail bar with music inside and out at the flick of a switch . The outside space is terrific you can all get together in the garden lounge for a barbecue or at one of the other beautiful dining areas ,or sneak off to one of the many private spots like the moroccan lounge bed or roof terrace for a quiet read .The pool us amazing when the sun is high it literally turns it into a sea of diamonds . The location suited all of us from tots to seniors ,there are some lovely restaurants and a handy minimarket within a short walk and the beach is a 10 min stroll with its cute restaurant /bar ,the boat trip to the caves from here is a must do .The town is a 5min taxi ride with lots of bars and restaurants and live music inn the square most nights.This really was a holiday of a lifetime and one none of us (especially mum and dad ) will forget . Many Many thanks to Mario the villa manager who collected us from the airport and guided us throughout our stay ( what a lovely man and so professional) ... And special thanks to Sam the owner who even got us a chef and yoga teacher WHAT A STAR ... We will certainly be back
We booked Le Roque for my mothers 60th Birthday celebrations. Finding somewhere for 11 adults and 3 children (under 4 ) for 2 weeks to all stay in one place is difficult but the pictures and reviews stood out so much. My previous experiences are that the pictures show the absolute best of a property and when you arrive it can be a slight disappointment as its not as large as you thought or its a little tired around the edges etc. This is NOT the case with Le Roque! From the second the huge, and incredibly impressive, front gates start to open you realise you've arrived at a truly special property which is everything we thought and hoped it would be. We are a very close family so spent most of the time together either around the pool, spread between sunbeds, playing in the pool or enjoying a cold drink in the outdoor cabana. As previous reviews stated if you wanted to spend time as a couple there are numerous little places to hide away and enjoy some time together aswell. Absolutely no expense has been spared anywhere and every bathroom and bedroom is beautifully finished and has its own special features. The outdoor bath on our balcony was a particular highlight for my wife and I to relax in once the children had gone to bed. The property manager (Mario) couldn't do enough for us and was helpful if we had a question about anything and would lay on private cars to collect us and take us for dinner etc. the cleaners where really lovely aswell and were very good (& patient) with the children who wanted to help! The location is excellent aswell with a well stocked shop and very nice coffee shop a short walk up the hill. Down the hill you are 5 mins walk from a charming cove and beach aswell as snack bar and small restaurant. In complete honesty Le Roque was so beautiful we found ourselves a few times going back early from excursions because we missed the place! In summary, we are a well travelled family who has stayed at some exclusive resorts all over the world but I can honestly say that Le Roque was truly a special place and made the holiday as special as we'd hoped. I cannot fault it even slightly and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a holiday with the 'wow' factor. To top this all off the owners stopped by on my mothers birthday to deliver a Birthday Cake and make sure everything was to our taste. What a lovely, down to earth, couple they are and Le Roque is a real credit to them.
This villa is simply stunning. We have stayed in many villas throughout the years and Le Roque is by far the nicest property that we have stayed in. Our family stayed for a total of 10 nights, 11 adults and 4 children, and we had a really fantastic holiday. The villa is out of this world and contains all mod cons within, including a games room, a beautiful pool, barbecue, coffee machine and a wonderful outdoor Moroccan themed seating area for kicking back and enjoying a glass of wine in the evenings. The tall wooden electric gates add to the splendor of the property. We also really appreciated the outdoor piped music whilst lazing around the pool during the day. Another lovely feature of Le Roque is the beautiful outdoor pergola bed perfect for taking an afternoon nap or for reading a book. Centianes beach is literally a 5 minute walk outside the villa and all of the shops, restaurants etc are within walking distance. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a truly magical holiday in a luxurious setting. We hope to return to Le Roque again in the future.
Wow what a villa! Magnifico! My family and I just spent the most amazing week at Le Roque. Everything about it was wonderful. The pool, the rooms, the roof terrace and break out areas are just to die for. Our host Sam couldn't have been more accommodating with all our requests met with no fuss. She was also very helpful with sharing local knowledge about the area. (Please note the 'white sangria' at the beach at end of the road is the perfect place to watch the sun go down) Our stay at Le Roque was probably the best holiday we've ever had. Definitely worth a visit.
BE PREPARED TO BE IMPRESSED We Had our family holiday in Le Roque this year although only four of stayed for the full 2 weeks we had family and friends join us at different intervals so the very grand proportions were well appreciated and even when there was 14 of us we all found our own private areas when required ,but most of the time we all got together and enjoyed the fantastic barbecue area and beautiful garden lounge.From the moment you arrive at those impressive castle gates you expect something special but believe me once you get inside it gets better and better . The gardens and pool are amazing so so private and bursting with character ,but it's not until you get inside that you appreciate the the effort that has gone into making this a very very special place .Inside is a perfect mix of tradition and state of the art. My partner and I are very well traveled and have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world but I can honestly say that Le Roque gave us the perfect mix of privacy and splendour. Sam the owner very kindly organised a Yoga teacher and beautician , she also was very helpful suggesting the best places to dine although to be honest it is really hard to leave the grounds .There is a Golf course out the rear gate and a lovely beach 5 mins walk out the front gate, there are half a dozen restaurants and a mini market within walking distance and the town is only a 5 min taxi ride .Carvoeiro has everything you could want for the perfect holiday and I am sure we will return.
Everything about this villa is first class and it all works the bedrooms are all fantastic and the terraces outside each bedroom mean that you never feel on top of each other there is a friendly golf course just down the road and a few bars and restaurants - don't bother with the "sunday roast lamb " over the road. Carvoiero is good for eating and the Wolf restaurant has great steaks. beaches are beaut if you can drag yourself out of the heated pool but so easy just to stay put. Fab
Our family stayed at Villa Le Roque for two weeks at the beginning of July, there were 15 of us in total which comprised of 13 adults & 2 small children aged 2 & 4. After a lot of searching for a villa to meets all of our needs, from the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice and had found the perfect villa. As we were staying here to celebrate my 50th Wedding Anniversary with my family, Sam made the occasion extra special for us by welcoming us with an beautiful hamper, special cake from a local delicatessen and an anniversary banner. Even before making the booking Sam was extremely helpful in answering my many questions & making helpful suggestions/restaurant reservations throughout our stay. The villa itself is unique in so many ways. With many of us staying there we didn’t feel on top of one another as it is very spacious and we loved having the many different seating areas. Getting together in the evenings under the BBQ seating area was simply superb; candles lit, Michael Buble playing through the music system and delicious food from the local supermarket on the BBQ it was everything I had pictured. All the rooms are well equipped & beautifully decorated, having en-suite bathrooms with the rooms was an added bonus. The kitchen is well equipped and there was nothing we couldn’t find that we felt we needed. The location is perfectly positioned with all amenities within close proximity, we did hire three vehicles for all of us which we found came in handy especially for making supermarket trips and days out. We particularly liked having the additional outdoor changing area with pool towels included, as this saved us valuable space in our luggage allowance. Visiting Portugal to us would only mean visiting ‘Le Roque’ again, as once you have stayed here you will not want to go anywhere else. A special thanks to Sam and her team for making our stay so special.”
We were here for our Easter break, it was truly amazing. Never ever in my life I have stayed in such a wonderful villa. It has all the amenities you could wish for, and the whole place was immaculate. All the bedrooms have their own unique decor and are ensuite. The poolside area is nice too. We had a few barbecues there which were great. Right on the top of the villa you can watch spectacular views. I can't wait to visit this villa again.
This villa offers everything you could possibly wish for, both inside and out. Arriving at Le Roque, we were gobsmacked by the size of the magnificent castle gates. Inside the grounds, a magical staircase takes you through the different levels of the garden to numerous quaint seating areas and a beautiful handcrafted antique pergola, which is perfectly positioned to catch the last of the sun at the end of the day. Day or night, the glistening white pearlescent pool invites you in. The temperature of the water was perfect and the surroundings exquisite. We had many tasty lunches round the pool using the large BBQ and table area, which is perfectly shaded under a large olive tree. There is a quirky outdoor sink too. Inside, the villa is superbly decorated and equipped with everything you could possibly need. We used the integrated coffee machine morning, noon and night. Every room is finished to a high specification. The 'Le Roque' embroidered robes and towels add a touch of elegance. There has been no expense spare on the bed linen either. Every morning we woke up feeling refreshed and ready for another day of pure luxury and relaxation. Le Roque is a stones throw away from the beach. It is perfect for an evening stroll to the beach bar for a jug of white sangria, then back to the villa to watch the sunset from the rooftop terrace. The living room has a state of the art HDTV and Bose surround sound system. The night before we flew home we had a cozy night in watching movies and being swallowed up by the huge sofa whilst the log fire roared. Pure bliss! Everything about our stay at Le Roque was OUT OF THIS WORLD.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING is how we would sum up Le Roque. This Villa delivers everything it promises and more. Everything has been completed to an extremely high standard. The attention to detail is superb and extremely rare nowadays so it was an absolute pleasure to experience. The photographs do not really do justice to the space and unique accommodation Le Roque offers. It is a stunningly beautiful villa offering opulent elegance at every turn. At the peak there were 15 adults and 2 babies staying (age range 4 weeks to 75 years) and not once did we feel that we were on top of each other. There is so much space both indoors and outdoors offering a little piece of heaven for everyone no matter what your taste. The pool is fantastic for all ages including little ones. Thoughtfully left were poolside flip flops for everyone. The pool house is great, so convenient. There is plenty of space in the sun or the shade depending on your taste. There are quiet spots to relax if you don't want to sit around the pool. The teenagers loved the roof top pergola and the downstairs pool/TV room with its own bar and kitchen. We loved the brick built BBQ and spent many an evening in the beautiful Moroccan garden lounge. All the bedrooms were thoughtfully furnished and bedding was of a good quality. The bathrooms are without exception all stunning. The kitchen offers all the mod cons and the additional fridge freezer downstairs was a god send! (especially to pop in and grab an icecream from poolside) The owners Sam and John who are super lovely people went out of their way to make our stay comfortable even thoughtfully leaving a wonderful hamper of food including some wonderful little luxuries and champagne for our arrival. The villa manager George was superb and was always on hand to help with anything. There are a couple of lovely restaurants within walking distance. Food was of an excellent standard and reasonably priced. Carveiro is a short taxi ride away and offers something to suit most tastes. The nearest beach was a 10 minute walk away and was spotlessly clean with a snack bar and bathroom facilities. There are 2 large supermarkets a 10 min taxi ride away but there is a local smaller supermarket 3 mins walk away which bakes fresh bread every day. Everyone that stayed with us at Le Roque said it was one of the best holidays they had experienced. We can not recommend it highly enough and if you are thinking of booking you won't be disappointed. It's worth every penny!
The Most incredible Villa..We were a group of 14 from all over the world that met up at Le Roque 3rd sept 2013 for 7 nights, we all agreed that for most holiday locations the pictures look better than reality, not in the case of Le Roque ,The reality is quite overwhelming from your initial entry through those fantastic Gates things only get better and better. All our group have visited some fantastic hotels in some beautiful countries but every one of us were blown away by this place .The interior is second to none and no expense has been spared in creating a perfect environment for a large group to interact or to find peace and quiet . The outside space is amazing, the pool is literally like swimming in a oyster shell and is at a perfect temperature the barbecue area next to the garden lounge was great and we could have eaten at a different location in the villas grounds for every day of our stay . The location was perfect for us we had a Golf course literally outside the rear gate and a beautiful beach 5 mins stroll out the front gates .There is a mini market just 2 minutes away and at least 10 great restaurants near the villa most within walking distance and the town of Carvoeiro which was very busy was a 3min taxi ride . We will certainly be back to La Roque ... Pure perfection.....quality accommodation at its best!!!
