Falfeira, Lagos, Algarve - Whats best about Falfeira. Lagos

If you are looking for peace and tranquility, fantastic views and yet be only one mile from the centre of the best town on the Algarve - then Falfeira is for you!

Falfeira is atop the ridge that runs behind the town before you dip down to the village of Portelas. Fifty years ago there were only half a dozen stone built cottages here and over the years various villas have been built, but it is not in the least overcrowded. Most of the houses are residential, with just a few available for letting, and most have fantastic views across the Bay of Lagos and to the Monchique hills.

Just a 15 minute walk will take you down to the Marina or the centre of town with its multitude of restaurants, shops and bars. A taxi is recommended for the return journey up the hill, especially in the heat of the day!

Falfeira certainly provides the best of all worlds!

Beautifully situated villa

4 of 5
The situation of the villa is stunning with wonderful panoramic views. Even in December we were able to sit out on the upstairs terrace with the bougainvillea still in bloom & admire the extensive vista. The pool area & gardens are spacious & well maintained & would be idyllic in the warmer months of the year, for those who like the heat, though it was warm enough to sit out a few times even in the dead of winter. We were there for a month. It's so peaceful. We are keen birdwatchers & with hoopoes, azure-winged magpies & owls visiting the garden frequently, it suited us perfectly. The management company was very helpful & if there was any kind of problem, it was dealt with immediately, but nearly all the information we needed was in Mrs Purefoy's very comprehensive notes. Two new bathrooms had just been installed & we had the pleasure of being the first guests to use them. For this time of year the underfloor heating & the heated towel rails were very welcome. We had time to explore the whole area, mostly the wild & rugged landscape & beaches west of Lagos & up in the Serra Monchique. We found the villa an excellent base for our excursions. For anyone interested in bird watching, we found the estuary & lagoons immediately south of Mexilhoeira Grande very rewarding, but there are lots of good areas in the vicinity, for example in Sagres & beyond at the Cabo de Sao Vicente. The only downside is that in the winter, since the villa is designed to keep out the searing summer heat, it was pretty chilly in the mornings & the evenings. There is a log fire, but it did take a while for the place to heat up in the evenings. We were always out most of the day, so weren't lighting the fire till later. However we got quite used to it. It's amazing how quickly you adapt. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday & would go back without any hesitation.

Cosy, well equipped, nice clean bathroom

4 of 5
We loved our stay in Lagos and the view of the marina from the balcony was beautiful. The apartment was a good size for two people and everything was clean, the only problem we had was that it was a bit of a heatwave and it affected our sleep for quite a few nights as there was no way of getting air into the apartment (and the fan was pretty useless) The lady who let us in was so helpful and gave us ideas of where to go and what to do

The Trotman Family Holiday

5 of 5
We are a family of five 2 adults and 3 children. We arrived late however Jose was there to greet us when we arrived and also made arrangements with me beforehand to stock up the fridge with some basic food essentials for our first night and also arranged for a local takeaway to provide an evening snack because of the late flight. This property is better than described. The Villa has fantastic views and the layout is exceptional including 3 good size bedrooms all with on suite facilities. There is a utility area with washing machine and a drying area. The pool is very private and gated which is ideal for younger kids.There is a lovely small garden next to the pool which leads to the barbecue area which also includes a small outside dining area.The Villa is exceptionally clean and well maintained including the pool area. It provides all that you would expect in your own home and more. There was enough space for all of my family to fully relax and the Wi Fi is of course a must for older kids and adults.The kitchen is spacious with two fridge/freezers and the lounge provides a panoramic view of the surrounding area. Satellite TV with some UK channels. It is easy to walk down into Lagos town which is only a 20 minute leisurely walk away. However as the walk back is on a slope it may be easier to drive especially if you are travelling with very young kids or someone elderly. Lidl Supermarket is only 10 minutes walk away. Lagos is a great town to be located near as it offers a variety of Restaurants,bars,beeches and the Marina and old town. However if you prefer you could just spend time relaxing at the Villa in the pool or BBQ, garden area. Our host Jose always made sure we were looked after and he was informative about other local places to visit or shop. He would also take time to speak to the whole family. Nothing was a problem for him and this added to our holiday experience. We have been to Portugal several times in the past and have stayed in many different types of property. None however have offered what this Villa does in terms of location, facilities and of course the friendly host Jose. I would certainly recommend this to other families. The Villa is a hidden gem and the photos do not give it justice. My whole family are keen to return as soon as we can.
