Welcome to Vila Carmina, where you can relax in style, enjoy the beautiful gardens and create lasting memories…..

Your time is precious and we understand how important holidays are, so we designed Casa Jóia with the sole aim of creating a beautiful home from home. A retreat where you can escape the everyday and spend time with your loved ones, recharge your batteries, indulge yourself, laugh together, rest and create unforgettable lifelong memories. Your Happy Place.

Our Values

We are passionate about design, supporting traditional crafts and artisans and this is reflected in the hand-crafted gates and interior doors, hand painted pool terrace tiles and the striking calçada entrance and pavement area. Art and travel are important to us and throughout Casa Jóia you will see art from many different parts of the world, including Portugal. We hope you decide to stay with us and will do our very best to ensure you have a great experience and create some special memories……..
Vila Carmina, where style meets comfort, your perfectly luxurious home from home.
