Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Lagos - Casa das Andorinhas

Traditional house, large private patio BBQ WIFI Cable TV. Old town, near beach

If you are looking for a tratitional Portuguese townhouse, full of atmosphere, character, charm, but with modern necessities thrown in. Close to Lagos centre and the beach, but in a quiet ares then look no further, this is the one!

This beautiful house, painted white with blue window surrounds, has been lovingly and thoughtfully restored. Its location is superb, set in a quiet cobbled street, close to the Tivoli Hotel and away from the noise of the restaurants and bars, yet only 350 metres (a few minutes’ walk) from Lagos centre.

The focal point of the house is a gorgeous private patio garden complete with ivy covered walls and herbs growing in the borders. The owner has added a touch of the modern with a dining table and chairs, and a Weber BBQ. The perfect spot for sunbathing, reading, surfing the net, relaxing and of course open air dining. To find a house in the centre of Lagos with a patio like this is a true treasure.

On entering the property you immediately feel at home, like the family of swallows who adorn the entrance hall wall, from which the house

derives its name. The house retains so of its original features and is full of light due to every room having a window to the outside. The hall, dining / breakfast room and kitchen have beautiful, newly tiled floors which have been cleverly designed to look like the original floor tiles.

The kitchen has a black granite work surface and all the modern appliances that you would expect to find including washing machine, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, oven and hob. Windows from the kitchen and the breakfast room look out onto the patio.

A separate hall wraps around from the entrance toward the front of the house and double wooden doors which open into a very light and airy lounge. The floors are all original wood and the walls which are painted in a soft pale blue are decorated with vintage images of Lagos, taken by Lagos photographer António Crisogno dos Santos in the 1930’s. There is a plasma TV, Cable & WIFI. 3 sets of windows open onto the street named after the photographer. When the windows are open the scent of oranges fills the room from the Laranjeira (Orange tree). Lean far enough out and you might just be able to pick an orange straight from the tree.

On the same floor is a bathroom with Shower, WC, vanity unit and 2 doors! One leads back to the breakfast room and one to the hall and lounge!

Wooden stairs lead up to the 2 bedrooms, a twin room and a double room Both have original wrought iron beds, but rest assured the mattresses are new!. In the middle of the 2 is a dressing room, and a WC. The double room and the hallway look out onto the patio, the twin room faces the side and dressing room and WC have views to the front. The windows in the bedrooms have internal wooden shutters, as do the rest of the windows throughout the house.

NOTE, for winter lettings, the owner will supply 2 oil radiators for and additional cost of just €10 per day

Old town charm

  • 4 of 5

We rented Casa das Andorinhas town house for a family holiday in August 2016. The house is in great condition and retains many original features, but has been well maintained with modern bathrooms and kitchen with all the latest tech we all expect (wi-fi, Wide screen TV etc.) The house is light, bright and tastefully decorated with simple white walls and a courtyard garden that provides great outdoor space to eat or entertain, all in complete privacy.

The house itself is situated on a corner in the North end of the old town away from the busiest and loudest night life spots, but within easy walking distance of the town centre itself (5 minutes walk) and from Casa das Andorinhas it will take you 10 minutes to walk to the best nightlife and we spent most of our time at the Batata beach with is a leisurely 15 minute stroll through the centre of town, which is a great walk to begin and end the day.

Casa das Andorinhas provides easy access to the motorways and ring roads that allow easy connection to the major roads and attraction in the area along with a number of supermarkets within a 5 minute drive or a local supermarket within a 10 minute walk. If you are driving you will need to find a place to park on the street (which can be challenging at times) but this task far outweighed the choice of renting further out of town in a more modern villa with a drive as you are in the centre of town and able to walk everywhere.

Please bear in mind that there is no Air conditioning at the house and if you are staying in the height of summer then it can get warm at night so if you want aircon and absolute peace and quiet then maybe a Villa slightly out of town would be a better choice. We enjoyed being in the heart of Lagos and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa das Andorinhas.

Wunderbares Haus in perfekter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderbares Haus in perfekter Lage! Wir waren wirklich begeistert von dem lievoll renovierten Altstadthaus!

Die Küche bietet alle Annehmlichkeiten, die man braucht, das Wohnzimmer ist gemütlich mit Fernseher und W-Lan, das Bad zauberhaft und die Schlafzimmer zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Es ist genügend Platz für vier Leute. Die Betten sind auch bequem.

Das Haus liegt am Rande der Altstadt, einfach über den Berg, dann ist man Mitten in der Fußgängerzone der wunderbaren Stadt Lagos. Parkplätze gab es - zumindest jetzt in der Nachsaison - immer direkt vor der Haustüre. Direkt gegenüber ist ein kleiner Tante-Emma-Laden, dort gibt es morgens frische Semmeln. Nebenan ist ein kleines Restaurant, nix besonderes, aber ein netter Wirt und ordentliches Essen. Unser Restaurant-Tipp: Das Oxala, marokkanische Küche, einfach über den Berg, am Anfang der Fußgängerzone vor dem ersten Platz auf der rechten Seite!

Maison de charme...rare.

  • 5 of 5

Cette maison possède un charme fou,à tel point qu'on la quitte à regrets.

Elle est idéalement située dans le centre,mais sans avoir les inconvénients des "déambulations nocturnes" de touristes avinés.Calme absolu,les chambres donnant sur le patio.Equipement très complet.(On peut juste regretter qu'il n'y ait pas un peu plus de couverts ) .Tout était très propre.La maison est à 3 minutes à pieds du magnifique marché au poisson.Il y a des petites supérettes très proches, ainsi que tous les restaurants et boutiques de cette jolie ville.Vous pouvez laisser votre voiture et tout faire à pieds,même la plage.

L'accueil a été très cordial,et nous avons même pu entrer avant l'heure prévue.

Je ne pense pas que l'on puisse trouver mieux à Lagos si on aime la tranquillité et l'authenticité (qui manque à certains endroits).

Je recommande très vivement cette location et je n'en voudrais pas d'autre si je retourne dans cette ville.
