Before the arrival of tourism, the majority of the inhabitants here had to seek life elsewhere: that is why José went to Angola. In 2001, in a return to their origins in Carvoeiro, they acquired Villa Welwitshia. Armanda organizes and manages this house so that everything is in order for the costumer, and to be sure that nothing fails. Armanda bakes gorgeous cakes. She spends much of her time cooking them. She is always trying new recipes, and customers are the first to taste Armanda's delicious sweets. José is in love with the sea, and it is unthinkable to live without it. When the to dos of his small hotel allow him, José can be found in his workshop, where his skilled hands build replicas of boats on which he sailed, or ancient ships of the discovery in homage to his ancestors. José and Armanda invite you to visit this unique fishing village. Its small beach, shaped in a bay and surrounded by houses, is a postcard of rare beauty. Villa Welwitshia is proud of becoming part of this scenario. Never forget the motto of this couple: enter as a customer, leave as a friend.
