What a fantastic time we all had in your beautiful villa, it was everything that you said it was.

It was one of the best holidays I have ever had, being able to enjoy it with all my family. It was great not having a car as we all had plenty of exercise. Thank you again for the lovely accommodation - hope to be back in the future. Ann Wetherall and family from Coventry.

Beautiful villa in fabulous setting

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sarah is a wonderful villa with every amenity you could ask for. It is in a secluded quiet location at the end of a cul de sac. The layout is ideal for families or friends sharing the villa, with enough room for everyone. It was superbly clean and modern and the kitchen even has 2 fridge freezers, so plenty of room to keep your drinks cold. The garden and pool area were immaculate,, with plenty of seating for sunbathing or outdoor dining.. The built in barbecue was of great use.. We met both the owner and the manager of the property whilst we were there and nothing was too much trouble.. We were there as a family group of 6 adults and 3 children under 5. I would recommend the villa to others , but the only negative was the location to both the beach and Lagos town. The nearest small supermarket is 0.5 mile and 10 minutes walk. The actual Marina is 1 mile and a good 20 mins walk, while the main square in Lagos with plenty of bars and restaurants is 1.3 miles and about 30 minutes. These distances are accurate as we walked there each day and my son in law had a special watch that measured distances , for his daily runs!!. The beach is a good 30 minutes walk. So if you have children or don't like walking then a car would be recommended as a must... Overall it was a very good holiday.

Owner's Response: It is always satisfying to hear that our guests thoroughly enjoy their stay at 'Casa Sarah', we delight in providing every amenity for our clients. It is particularly important that we provide quality equipment and furnishings throughout and give thought in catering for every family member from the youngest to the eldest.'Casa Sarah' is in an ideal location providing privacy and seclusion for complete relaxation and yet being close walking distance to the beach of Meai Praia, the Marina and the town centre. It is interesting to see that the guest above has unfortunately not discovered the short cuts available to the beach in particular, however, we have the solution and we are now providing a handout map to all guests when they check into the Villa, at the time of meeting our local property manager Dinis. The useful hand-out map enables guests to easily find the most convenient walking routes to the beach, shops and to the nearby Marina and town. For clarity on the Villas exact location please do ask me to send you a link to a useful google satelitte map which illustrates the propertys location to all amenities. I am always delighted to help you and to get your holiday visit off to the best possible start.

Beautiful Villa in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sarah is an amazing villa. It was still spacious even with 10 people, and the pool and garden are lovely.

Chris (the owner) was so helpful when we were booking our holiday, answering the smallest of questions very quickly.

The villa is about a 15 min walk from the marina and about 20 mins from the town. Lagos is a brillant town, with something for everyone.

I'd strongly recommend casa sarah to anyone.

We will definately be back!

Easter holiday at Casa Sarah

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday at Casa Sarah, with 5 assorted teenagers.

Chris was very helpful and responded promptly to enquiries.

The house was an easy 40 minutes from Faro airport, though we should probably have used the satnav as I've forgotten how to follow written instructions.

The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac of similar properties, mostly second homes. The house easily accommodated us all with enough space for us all to do our own thing. I often had to remind the boys to emerge from the fun packed games room for some fresh air when the sun was out

They had great fun horsing around in the pool, and I was pleased we had asked for it to be heated, so they could still play in it in the evening and on rainy days.

The beach is wide and lovely, very clean and almost empty though there are a couple of discreet bars tucked away. It is only a 10 minute walk along an unmade road through a beautiful pasture. Most days there were great breakers for splashing in, but on one of the mill pond days we saw a school of dolphins playing about 30m from where the kids were swimming!

The back of the house opens onto a green open space with fantastic birdlife, and the houses on the other side feel quite distant, and are mostly screened with trees.

Visiting Albufeira made us realise how lucky we were to stay in a peaceful area,but close to amenities, with low key Lagos itself within walking distance for the kids.

The house is very clean and well equipped , with insect screens upstairs and shutters on all the windows.The sofas are comfy and the bedrooms and bathrooms goodsized, (but difficult to fit more than 8 round the dining table).

The kitchen is well equipped with coffee maker, blender, microwave etc.There are dishwasher tabs to get you started. The TV and DVD worked fine (limited English satellite channels, and we couldn't find any local ones).

Most of the activities locally weren't open during our stay, Aquapark opens in June and pedalos etc in May, but that did reduce costs!

We were texted about the volcanic disruption by a friend the night before we were due to leave, and Chris was so helpful when I made contact. We were able to stay on as the house wasn't booked for the following week. In the end our return was delayed a whole week ,so I can attest to the washing machine working. Chris very kindly waived the rental fee for the second week, which is in great contrast to the horror stories we have heard.

Unusually for us we are very likely to return

A fantastic holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Dear Chris,

I wanted to send you this message on behalf of my family to thank you

for your part in what was a fantastic summer holiday this year.

We had an excellent time, something that should not be assumed with 3 children, one of which is 2 years of age and with the beach so easily accessible, it was great fun to see her paddle in the sea.

The accommodation was fantastic, immaculately clean, well furnished and maintained, offering us all the amenities we required.

Much of our time was spent relaxing by the pool and having evening bar-b-ques- despite the great location allowing us to readily explore the wonderful town of Lagos and many other of the locations on the Algarve, all of which were in the information pack that you provided us with, another attention to detail that you should be commended for.

Thanks once again and we will be in touch about the next reservation!

Regards

John and Family from Bristol

Fantastic stay in Villa 'Casa Sarah' in 2009.

  • 5 of 5

Myself & 8 others friends in their fifties stayed in this villa in Sept and it was everything we could have hoped for. The pictures did not do the villa justice and it was even nicer than we expected. Exceptionally clean and nice bed linen. We have been doing this for years and the girls said it was the best villa we have ever stayed. in The pool area with its lovely outdoor dining set and loungers was great, we had a few good nights there. The beach is a bit of a walk through fields and might not be great for bringing small children though its only a few minutes drive. You can walk to the town in about 13 mins but the road has no footpaths so would be dangerous at night. Otherwise I would strongly recommend this villa for a trip to Lagos.

Casa Sarah, Albrdeira Parque Lagos Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sarh is a wonderful villa with a spacious living & sleeping areas set in a quiet cul-de-sac, within walking distance of the amenities in Lagos. I can safely say that, without fear of contradiction, it is easily the best villa that I have ever stayed at in the Algarve. The owner provided a very comprehensive pack with very explicit directions of how to get to the villa from the Airport. All details in the pack were completely accurate & the attention to detail was impressive. All inormation provided about things to do & places to eat helped make the holiday a wonderful experience. I would recommend the villa to anyone.
