The tradition of this family (by José) dates back to several generations of fishermen from the fishing village of Carvoeiro, formerly called Praia do Carvoeiro, 5 km from Lagoa and about 40 minutes from Faro airport. Before the arrival of the tourism, many of the people from here originated had to look for life in other places, the one of the Jose went to Angola. Joseph felt the genetic appeal of the sea, and of this made fate and profession. Together with his father he developed a small family industry for catching and processing fish. While the family business was developing, Joseph would date Armanda whom he had fallen in love with and would marry her on a torrid afternoon in an African summer. From this union were born three beautiful girls. Like many, Jose and Armanda had to give another direction to their life motivated by the insecurity that lived in their land. They returned to Portugal in 1975. They settled in Póvoa de Varzim in northern Portugal, and José returned to his usual destination - the sea. In 2001, returning to their origins, they acquired the Villa Welwitshia in Carvoeiro where they began to develop the tourist activity they still maintain today. Armanda organizes and manages this house so that everything is in order and nothing is lacking to each one of its numerous clients. It is for the sweets that Armanda is lost, here we can find to try new recipes for their sweets and cakes, whose clients are the first to taste the delicacies with which Armanda surprises them. José is a lover of the sea, hence it is unthinkable to live far from him. When the business of the little hotel allows him, Joseph takes refuge in his workshop, where skillful hands come out of nowhere, replicas of the ships he sailed, or others he builds with affection, imitating ancient ships in honor of his ancestors . José and Armanda suggest you a visit to this unique fishing village. Its small bay-shaped beach shrouded by the white house is a tourist postcard of rare beauty. Villa Welwitshia is proud to belong to the setting, which now invites you to visit. Living up to the motto of this couple: Enter as a customer, leave as a friend! We wait for you.
