About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Quality Furnishings Throughout Heated Pool

Casa Trafford is a newly completed (June 2012) 2 storey villa in a prestigious, quiet residential area of Porto de Mos. It has been beautifully fitted out with high quality furnishings, comfortable beds and 'high end' linens. The electric gates, video entry system and electric shutters provide excellent security for the villa which is fully air-conditioned, with underfloor heating and a wood burning stove for cooler times of the year.

The pool and balcony side of the house, enjoys all day sunshine where there are extensive terraced areas to relax and sunbathe on the ample sun loungers. The villa is also equipped with an outside kitchen and built in bbq - perfect for alfresco dining at the large outdoor table on those warm summer evenings! The landscaped garden has been well stocked with young shrubs and plants including, lemon, orange and olive trees.

The villa benefits from some sea views, with Porto de Mos beach being approx a 7 minute walk away and home to 2 great restaurants.

Non swimmers must be supervised at all times.

Insurance must be provided by the holiday maker.

There is a 55 square metre salt water infinity pool, fitted with an electrically operated hard cover; an excellent safety feature when there are young children around, however, non-swimmers should be supervised at all times.

We ask that you respect our only 'house rule' of not smoking inside the villa and anticipate that you will care for our property as you would your own home, so that other guests may continue to enjoy their stay too.

Mid stay cleans can be arranged at extra cost which will be paid by the guest to the agent.

The beach is a 7 minute walk from the villa

Pool heating 150 Euro per week

Cleaning for large groups 150 Euro per stay

Extra cleans 12 Euro per hr.

About Sandra

We are a married couple with 6 children aged 8 to 25 yrs. We live in Fleet, Hampshire where we built our own house in 2004, decided that we would like to do the same in Lagos. We began our search for a plot and in bought this one in 2007; the build was completed in June 2012. We are looking forward to spending many happy holidays with our family at the villa and are planning to relocate to Lagos on retirement.

Sandra purchased this villa in 2012

Why Sandra chose Lagos

We loved the location of the plot at Porto de Mos - a very pretty area and extremely peaceful but convenient for the beach and shops.

What makes this villa unique

The villa was designed by a well know local architect and benefits from offering a choice of several outside areas to relax and enjoy the attractive views over Porto de Mos and the countryside to the rear of the property. The pool is of a generous size and has the advantage of being salt water which is kinder to skin and eyes.

Being able to walk down to two beach restaurants is a big plus as is being a few minutes drive from the shops and supermarkets

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sandra

A more comfortable villa, I believe isn't possible.

We have had a splendid holiday in Lagos. Nice weather and beautiful beaches

it was a good decision to heat the pool

The corner outside the kitchen is sometimes windy.

Fantastic villa in good location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a great location just outside the town of Lagos, 6 euros in a taxi, and a 5 minute walk from the beach.

The villa itself is very luxurious, with a fabulous outside seating area and BBQ/dining patio. It is very well equipped with kitchen utensils, washing machine, hair dryers in every room, blackout shutters, cot and high chair. Plus a range of games, pool toys, DVDs, and table tennis means that it caters for all ages.

The owner was really friendly and welcoming, recommending places to eat and visit during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble.

In short, we would definitely recommend a stay here for either families or groups, and hope to return in the future.

Fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Thank you Thankyou! 9 of us stayed for 10 nights. What a great choice!

From start to finish we all had a fantastic time. The villa is perfectly clean, really well maintained and fully stocked with all the things you'll need and the luxurys you don't but enjoy!

Each of the rooms are air conditioned with electric shutters. We were all cool and secure, very important considering our girls are aged 1 & 3.

The pool what a true delight! Pool heating was sublime. All commented that it's probably the nicest pool we have used.

Supermarkets and shops short car ride away as are some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen!

Kevin & Sandra were friendly, helpful & easily contactable.

We would highly recommend Casa Trafford and hope to return. In fact, wish we were there now!

Thanks again!

Fabulous family villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Trafford is an excellent villa for a family holiday. All the home comforts and all the extra luxuries as well.

There were ten of us ranging from 61 years of age to 18 months old and we all had a fantastic holiday. The pool area is lovely and relaxing and there are a few seating areas where we sat late at night chatting with a glass of wine, I would love to be back there right now!

There's a great beach 10 minutes walk away with two good restaurants for the nights you don't want to barbecue.

Kevin and Sandra are just a phone call away if you have a problem and are very helpful.

All in all a perfect family villa.

Sue, Les and family, Cheshire.

You couldn't ask for a better villa!

  • 5 of 5

We have holidayed in Porto de Mos for the past 7 years and this was our first time at Casa Trafford. We stayed for (sadly) only a week this time and wished we had booked for longer! It really does deliver, spacious, well equipped and a fantastic pool. We had a brilliant time, so much so that we have already booked to come back next summer for 2 weeks. The villa has everything and will cater for all needs, modern with a good homely feel, we have a small child and he loved it - especially the pool and it is super safe and secure. The villa was spotless and very well maintained and the manager Rui was very helpful. The owners Sandra and Kevin were also great and easily contactable (this was only needed in the booking process as there were no problems that we needed to contact them about!).

I would recommend this property to everyone - if you looking for a fantastic villa in Porto de Mos then book this villa, you will not be disappointed.

The bustling centre of nearby Lagos is a few minutes drive away and offers a huge choice of quality restaurants, bars, shopping and night life to suit all tastes and budgets. There is a frequent bus service to Lagos town centre, which operates from Porto de Mos beach front. A taxi from the villa to Lagos centre will cost around 7 euros.

Places of interest to visit: Alvor, Burgau, Carvoeiro, Salema, Sargres, Portimao, Prai de Luz etc., are all within easy driving distance. For the children: The Zoo Marine and Slide and Splash Water Park at Lagoa will easily entertain them for the day. There is another water park, Aqualand at Albufeira.

The villa benefits from being in an ideal location for golfers, being only minutes away from Boa Vista golf course, with Penina, Parque da Floresta and Palmares, all within a maximum of 15 minutes drive. Oceanico Courses are 30-45 minutes away.

A walk into Lagos takes around 30-45 minutes, with many restaurants on the way.

There is also a private hospital a few minutes drive from the villa

The beach is a 7 minute walk from the villa
