                                  Very beautiful Villa with awesome outside area. Enough space also for a bigger family. Location is good to access all spots around Lagos as well of the west Algarve which is perfect for Surfing. G.Koopmann+ family

                                  Beautiful villa with outstanding views

                                  We has a wonderful week in a beautiful villa which provided everything you could possibly wish for. The pictures really do not do it justice, it is fabulous!Eva and Roger were great and provided us with lots of information about things to do in the area and restaurants to visit locally. Our day out on the yacht was one of the highlights of the holiday. The villa is close to Lagos and Alvor , where one of our favourite restaurants is, so a beach is within easy reach if you fancy a change from the pool. It was great to be able to feed the terrapins in the Lake, they are really friendly but watch your toes! The views were stunning and it was really peaceful both during the day and in the evening where you could sit out on one of the many terraces and watch the stars. The villa was also close to the kart track which kept our teenager amused. All in all we had a fantastic time and will definitely book this villa again next time we are in Portugal.
