Home From Home pool, garden & BBQ highlights
We had a very relaxing time at the villa with our two teenage sons. Especially loved the pool and all it’s various areas where you can practically track the sun through the day, beautiful well maintained garden and BBQ/sheltered patio area. The owners have taken great care in leaving listings of recommended restaurants and activities of which Lagos has many. (We’d add the crazy golf at the back of the town walls for a bit of family fun-even teenagers).
Some minor things we feel could be adjusted- Maybe too many notices about the place about security and recent thefts in the area - slightly spooked our sons who saw the notes.
We were fortunate to have great sunny days - it was hot especially to sleep at night and full air con would have been nice, as well as mosquito nets to keep some very persistent ones out.
Nearby Lagos is a very lovely town and area - we have retuned many times over the years. You need a car to get to Lagos and access the ‘wilder western beaches’.
Everything we needed was available in the villa. We would love to come back,and thoroughly enjoyed our break.
A most enjoyable stay
The villa was spotlessly clean and had very well managed grounds. The pool was well maintained and cleaned twice during our fortnights stay.
The villa is excellently located in a rural setting with splendid views of the ocean and countryside yet close to supermarkets and all the amenities of Lagos.
Doreen provided very thorough and extensive information about restaurants, points of interest, places to visit and local information which was extremely useful to us.
The villa was well equipped and we enjoyed picking oranges for our freshly squeezed juice in the morning a d lemons for our evening g+t .
We would definitely like to return although as a party of 6 rather than 8 as we would not use the annex as an additional bedroom again. The fold up beds were low and uncomfortable and made the sitting room cramped for space.. Apart from that it was excellent.
Lovely Villa in a great location. Communications with owner and agent very easy. An ideal family holiday with a great heated pool.
Thank you so much for your review. It does help us very much. So pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we hope tom see you again in the future.
Lovely villa with great views and utter silence, very relaxing. The heated pool was a bonus.
We were delighted to arrive after a long journey and were not disappointed. The villa was very clean and welcoming, the maid had put the heaters on so it was nice and warm inside as well as out. We explored the house and found everything needed for a great holiday. The pool looked fantastic and we quickly got ready for a swim which was lovely. We found a very good taxi firm which came to collect us every evening, so no need to worry about drinking and there was an ample supply of taxis to bring us back the fare being a very reasonable 5/6 euros. We followed the recommendations re restaurants in the owners local notes and found these very reliable without exception.
We spent most of our time lounging around the pool at the villa but did venture out to beaches now and again and explored further afield towards the west coast. We were particularly fond of Ingrina and Salema on the way and the beaches up the west coast are all very stunning and almost undiscovered. The beach bars are all very good, but it's a shame they have all been made to conform to certain rules which has robbed them of their individual style. Nearer to home, we particularly like the restaurants at Porto de Mos, as you are right on the beach and can enjoy spectacular sunsets. It is worthwhile going inland through Portelas and up to Bensafrim then twirl around and go back through Barao St Juao and St Miguel, an unspoilt area of the Algarve unchanged by time. In short a great holiday with lots of variety .
lovely spot in the hills above Lagos
We very much enjoyed our stay in the Casa do Miradouro in Falfeira, a small rural neighborhood on the outskirts of Lagos. The house is quite large, with great views out over the valley and down to the harbor & beaches east of Lagos. It is wonderfully quiet, and peaceful, and Lagos is almost deserted in late December. Weather here was great for the season-- low 60's (F) and mostly sunny for the entire 2 weeks we were there. The pool is heated (though for extra cost!), and works even in this off-season. The house itself is a bit odd in design, but well appointed. It has two very nicely refitted new full bathrooms with heated floors and towel bars, but the kitchen is a bit spartan, and the fireplace in the main living room does not work. The doors and windows are a bit old and need to be treated carefully, but they are secure and functional. If it is privacy and seclusion you are seeking, with a view and convenient access to everything in Lagos, this is your spot! if you seek something brand new and uber-luxurious, keep looking ;-)
Coast / Beach:
Den nærmeste stranden er 1. 5 km unna. Den berømte Meia Praia stranden kan nås med ferge fra promenaden eller fra en av de mange parkeringsplassene strødd langs stranden. På den andre siden av byen er den mest fotograferte stranden på Algarve - Praia Dona Anna med sin utrolige steinformasjoner. Det er mange strender langs kysten av alle størrelser og fasonger. De fantastiske vestkysten strender er innen rekkevidde, hemmeligheten vik av Ingrina, de aller Castelejo og Amado for surfere
Faro flyplass ligger 78km (ca. 45 min kjøring) via motorvei A22 til Lagos.
Leiebil anbefales sterkt for bekvemmelighet, men ikke absolutt nødvendig.

Lagos (uttales Lah-Gosh!) er ganske annerledes enn de fleste andre Algarve skianlegg. Dette er ingen spesialbygd feriested eller over-utviklet fiskerlandsby, men en gammel portugisisk by, dens arv godt bevart av kommunestyret. Turisme spiller nå en viktig del i sin velstand, men på ingen måte overvelder det. De gamle menn fortsatt samles for å sette verden til rettigheter, og du trenger bare spasere en kort vei fra sentrum til å finne springende brosteinsbelagte gater eller den gamle bymuren som omgir byen. Sentrum er bare 1. 5 km unna.
Besøk den nye marinaen for å beundre yachter, spasere langs palmekledde promenaden med utsikt over fiskehavnen og den gamle Fort som stikker ut i havet, det gamle slavemarkedet (nå et kunstgalleri) og kirken Santo Antonio med sin regionale museum. Det er favoritt ferieby for den portugisiske seg selv, noe som sikrer god verdi for pengene og Portugal i seg selv er en av de billigste landene i Europa. Kort sagt, er det en romslig portugisisk by med noe for enhver smak. Det finnes mange restauranter som passer alle lommer og smaker, ulike supermarkeder og alle varianter av butikker.
I og rundt Lagos er anlegg for seiling, windsurfing, surfing boarding, vannski, dykking, havfiske, båtturer, tennis, squash, ridning, delfiner og, for de virkelig eventyrlystne, mikrolette fly! En omfattende guide til lokale fasiliteter sendes til all bestilling av villaen.
