About Carlos Capaz

My main work is to make knitwear collections, for my family’s company. I also own a construction company that builds lovely Portuguese traditional houses, all located in rural villages at 30 mins from Lisbon.

My wife she loves cats, is fluent in several languages and works as a teacher in a High School. We are a couple in our fifties.

Carlos Capaz purchased this villa in 2005

Why Carlos Capaz chose Foz Do Arelho

As Silver Coast is a fantastic region ( that we knew very well), we decided to build there our dream property. After discover the land, we found out the place so charming that we decided immediately to buy it and build there the villa of our dreams. We just wanted the best and we did not spare any efforts to achieve our aims. The result was a fantastic villa and an architectural master piece completely turned to the luxury relax, the sun and the views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have rented many villas in europe but found Casa do Lago certainly met all our holiday criteria......such views!!!



With 6 adults and 5 children to entertain there was never a dull moment with the villa's top notch facilities!



Both Carlos & Isobel were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them...



A great fortnight and a property I have already recommended to our friends

Stunning

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Casa do Lago for a week in August 09. The villa was easily big enough for our family of 4 adults (2 parents & 2 grandparents) and 5 children, and if we'd kept the baby in our room could have accomodated the other set of grandparents too.

The villa was simply stunning and exceeded even our high expectations having viewed the website.

It has extraordinary views over the lagoon and out to the ocean. The infinity pool is fabulous and the gardens look great but better still include a childrens play area, hammocks, outdoor gym, and crazy golf. This was paradise for the kids (3yrs to 14 yrs) who also loved all the toys and games in the villa: bikes, table tennis, table football, frisbees, inflatables, body boards, bikes (helmets even provided), trikes etc... For the adults there with at least 9 sun loungers by the pool, a wine fridge, sun shades on windows that opened and shut with the sun and bikes and gym equipment for the more adventurous.

We used the outdoor bbq and the lady who looks after the house for the owners was able to arrange for people to cook for us one evening without a problem.

The villa was cleaned and linen changed mid week, and the pool regularly cleaned. All the bedrooms were big, en-suite, with floor to ceiling glass door/windows onto the patios or balconies.

Furnishings and equipment in the villa are all as we'd have at home, not the usual 'rental' standard. Touches such as all switches being labelled and a pc provided with broadband made the stay even easier.

The beach in Foz was busy, but a 25 min drive around to the other side of the lagoon and leads to acres of almost empty golden sand, with the added pleasure of looking across at your own villa.

Very happy to recommend!

Owner's Response: Our aim is to have all clients very satisfied and we will never be happy with less than that.
All comments are welcome and we feel very gratified when clients spend their time writing such nice words about our villa.
Despite our guests positive opinions, we will not stop and very soon we will start a new improvement process in the villa with the installation of new facilities.

The Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
What a fantastic place to stay in the sun. Everything you could wish for has been considered. The layout lends itself perfectly to holidaying with small children. The glass fences around the pool, and the wonderful play area mean that you never need to leave the villa to keep the kids entertained.
The stylish interior and fantastic bathroom facilities mean that your stay can be luxurious and relaxing too.
Carlos is so helpful and on hand at all times.
Couldn't be more pleased!!

A great home in a great location!

  • 5 out of 5
We were a group of 10 from Canada/US that always rents a villa for our vacations in Europe. This was a great home and was exactly as described and photo'd. The property is clean and well maintained with good security. There is lots of parking for multiple vehicles. The owner welcomed us at the villa and walked us through everything we would need to know. He also left us with a wonderful welcome package of foods, fruits and wine to get us through our first day! He was also easily available to contact if we had any issues or questions.
This property easily accommodates 5 couples and there is lots of room for children. The 5 bedrooms all had a private bathroom which makes travelling with a large group that much easier.
The property offers up lots of fun. 10+ bikes for rides to the beach and around the area, (there are a few hills!) an outdoor games room and playground. Pool and property is designed to be very safe for young children. The pool is great and has lounge chairs for 10-12.
The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked our dinners most evenings. There is a lovely outdoor wood fired BBQ and eating area where we ate most nights. The pool is heated, wood supplied for the BBQ, air conditioning units in each room -- with no additional charges attached.
The beach in Foz is amazing. The Atlantic side has spectacular beaches but the swimming is rough and cold and not for everyone. But the lagoon is very, very large and has wonderful beach areas and swimming for even the smallest child.
We enjoyed many restaurants at the beach for lunch and dinner. Our best meal out was at The Vintage Club in Foz do Arelho. A very nice spot with great tapas style food and wine -- best to make reservations for dinner.
The lagoon area also had a water sports rental club for sailing, wind surfing, paddle boards, canoes and lots of other water activities at inexpensive rates.
The villa bathrooms were cleaned for us mid week (we were there for 7 days) with a change of towels. Our only wish would be to have a few more towels and linens in the kitchen -- but we experience this everywhere in Europe. Beach towels for everyone are also supplied but worth bringing a few extra along.
We would definitely recommend this villa for a large group travelling together and found it very affordable. The area around Foz do Arelho was also very affordable for groceries and dining out.
Compared to other rentals we considered in the area -- this was by far the best! Thank you Carlos!

Owner's Response: Thank you Katherine for your review and for your very helpful comments. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our Villa Casa do Lago. I am also glad to learn about the lack of kitchen linen and towels. Thus, helping us to improve our service for future guests.
Muito obrigado again!

Luxury villa, heated pool, amazing views

  • 5 out of 5
Perfect locationand to wake up every morning to those views made my holiday very special. The villa was very clean and well maintained.
The pool area and surrounding gardens were very child freindly and so were perfect for my 2 young grandchildren to play in.
The kitchen facilities had every gadget you could think of. Bedrooms were very spacious with plenty of storage.
The only downside to this property is that you do need a hire car to get about, as the local amenities are not within walking distance.
I can only think of one thing to make this holiday even more luxurious than it was, it would be to have an outdoor Jaccuzzi/Hot Tub.
Carlos offered excellent customer service and we could not fault his assistance in anything we asked of him.
If you are looking for a luxury holiday, then I would definitely reccomend this villa.
