Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Zambujeira do Mar - Casa da Laginha

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Casa da Laginha is a villa which stands on top of a cliff in Zambujeira do Mar with spectacular panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The house has been completely renovated, redecorated and impeccably furnished. The house offers spacious accommodation and is ideal for a large family or 2 families to share. 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on the first floor, 1 twin bedroom and shower room on the ground floor. Two of the bedrooms have verandas overlooking the sea and the main bedroom has a private large terrace. The centre of the picturesque village of Zambujeira do Mar is only a 5 minute walk with its bars, outdoor cafes and excellent restaurants. Three beautiful beaches and a rock pool are also just a short walk away. Due to its idyllic situation, the house catches the Atlantic breeze making air conditioning unnecessary. Once you arrive, you will find that use of the car is unnecessary except for exploring the countryside and neighbouring towns.

Who will enjoy it: Beach lovers who want to get away from it all and enjoy the rustic appeal of this charming, unspoilt and still unknown area, away from the bustle and over development of the Algarve.

We particularly enjoy the simple pleasures of being able to walk across the cliffs to secluded beaches and to wander down to the village to sample local produce fresh from the daily market. In the evenings there is a variety of bars, cafes and restaurants all at reasonable prices. Go to the Hamock Bar for the best 'Caipirinhas' in town! You'll be glad you only have to walk back home.

Our children love going to the main 'cool' beach where 'Baywatch' lifeguards monitor the progress of young bodies surfing, swimming and playing volleyball. We prefer to go to a secluded beach, 5 minutes walk from the house, (176 steps) which is 'cleansed' by the sea on a daily basis.

The house is the best place to 'chill out' and enjoy stunning views and amazing sunsets, while enjoying a drink or two on the upper terrace.

Who won't enjoy it: If you like crowds, lots of tourists and noisy night life, Zambujeira is not for you... It is certainly not boring, but OK and Hello magazines have not discovered the place yet (thank God). In fact you probably won't see any other 'Brits', as there are no hotels nearby !

There is an excellent 'Algarve Shopping Centre' in Guia, near Albufeira in the Algarve, with a variety of first class shops, (1-1/2 hours drive). If the children insist, you could link the shopping to a visit to the nearby Aqualand and Slide & Splash water parks.

Inland are the Monchique mountains (1-1/2 hours drive), where you can enjoy the best chicken 'piri-piri' in the world together with some of the renowned Alentejo wines.

There is an international music festival which takes place every year in the estate of Casa Branca outside Zambujeira at the beginning of August, which attracts crowds of around 30,000 young people and has featured international bands like Jamiroquai, Molokko, Portishead and P.J. Harvey.

What to do: Imagine Cornwall but warmer, less crowded, with better and cheaper food, wine and restaurants.

If spending the day on the beach and chilling out in the evening on the terrace is not enough, water sports, horse riding, cycling, mountain biking, canoeing, fishing and bird watching are all in the vicinity. We particularly like going for walks along the rock cliffs facing the Atlantic with spectacular views and sunsets.

The location of the house is perfect for children of all ages (we never see ours except at meal times) as both beaches, bars and restaurants are all within walking distance.

Sailing is available in Lagos, 40 miles away, where we sail our own Dart catamaran across lovely Lagos bay. Yacht charters are available through the Lagos Marina.

There are 4 major golf courses within an hour's drive: Palmares is 50 mins, Penina 60 mins, Parque da Floresta 50 mins and the Algarve's latest and most stunning course, Boa Vista is 45 minutes away.

Casa perfecta para familias grandes

  • 4 of 5

Con vistas a un maravilloso acantilado, la Casa Laghina es un lugar ideal para pasar unas vacaciones en familia en el Alentejo. Si hubiera que mejorar algo actualizaría el menaje de la cocina

Fantástica casa de férias!

  • 5 of 5

Passámos 1 semana na casa da Laginha e aconselhamos de olhos fechados!! Tem uma vista fantástica sobre o mar, está a 5 minutos da praia da zambujeira, a pé, e a 2 minutos dos restaurantes. Os quartos são óptimos, a decoração é fantástica e tem todas as comodidades necessárias para 10 pessoas.

O Fernando, o proprietário, é muito simpático, e a D.Lena, a empregada, foi sempre super prestável e pronta a ajudar!

Gostámos muito!

Laginha & Zambujeira. Uma dupla imbatível!

  • 5 of 5

A Laginha é uma casa muito bem localizada, pelo horizonte que nos oferece e pela proximidade real das prais e do centro da Zambujeira, beneficiando de apreciável sossego. Passando a porta, abre-se um espaço muito acolhedor ao nosso olhar superando claramente as fotos já de si muito apelativas a que tivemos acesso neste sítio. Depois, o espaço é generoso particularmente na sala e cozinha permitindo a vida de 10 pessoas sem atropelos. Mobilada e equipada com tudo o que é necessário e suficiente, cumprindo com rigor o que anuncia.

A Laginha está bastante preservada e a limpeza à chegada, assinalável.

O ambiente que se respira não nos atira para uma daquelas casas de férias impessoais. Parece que há clara preocupação dos proprietários de nos receber na sua casa com todo o conforto que naturalmente procuram para si. Só podemos recomendar!

Depois a Zambujeira! Uma pequena aldeia que oferece prais de cortar a respiração e muitas e simpáticas esplanadas. Tudo isto, sempre a pé! Foi excelente e vamos querer voltar.

Casa da Laginha is located on the edge of Zambujeira do Mar, an unspoilt and picturesque small fishing village with a population of 900 inhabitants, on Alentejo's south-west coast, just south of Vila Nova de Milfontes and to the north of Odeceixe on the Algarve border. Within the protected area of the 'Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina' its beaches, some of them miraculously empty, constitute one of its most important attractions. Summer nights can be lively in the different bars, outdoor cafes and restaurants situated within walking distance from the house.
