A lovely quinta in the quiet surroundings of Lagos, with a fantastic garden with sculptures & pool

  • 4 of 5

We were really pleasant surprised when we first saw this real gem in Monte Judeu. Well equipped, a nice interieur and enough room for two couples and baby. The people from Destination Algarve were friendly, they cleaned once a week. Bring your own beachtowels !

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a real gem and left a big impression on us to the point where we are thinking of booking it again. It's tucked away in the countryside just outside Lagos, but is a 10 minute drive from the town centre. The interior, garden and pool areas have been finished to a really high standard and have pretty much everything you could want for your stay (even a few dvds the kids can watch). The pool area is a sun trap and hardly a car passes the villa all day so it's a really relaxing spot. We had a fantastic holiday here and would definitely stay again.

Fantastic Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a wonderful garden setting. Inside are lovely character features - the photos are exactly as it is. The main bed is exceptionally comfortable, so much so that we had to buy a new bed when we got home! The overall standard of furnishings and equipment is very high, and easily the cleanest villa we have ever stayed in. The location is very peaceful and rural with a few villas dotted around, yet an easy short drive to Lagos, Praia da Luz and Burgau. Destination Algarve went that extra step to ensure exceptional quality service, so I would not hesitate to recommend both them and this villa for a lovely chill out break. Watching the stars at night with a glass of wine and absolute peace and quiet, fantastic memories. We are planning to return.

Fantastic countryside villa!

  • 5 of 5

A stunning villa with stylish modern furnishings in a beautiful garden setting. Everything you could wish for has been provided. You need a car as it is up a rough track and not really near any tourist bars or restaurants but these are just an easy 10min drive away (and Lagos has plenty of options for all tastes). Although we did not arrange, I imagine taxis are another option for the odd day where no one wants to drive. Minor improvements would be hair dryer, plastic cups for by the pool for those afternoon beers and coasters so you don't run risk of marking any furniture - as I say really, really minor - it was that good. The pool setting and garden are just wonderful and being in such a peaceful country side location, completely not overlooked was great, kids and music can be as loud as you like! Sean and the management team looked after us very well and we would not hesitate in recommending this villa and resort to anyone - we will be back!

Quiet and rural

  • 4 of 5

This is a quality accommodation. Appliances are high quality and the equipment is almost complete (the only thing we could not find was a net to clean the pool of leaves). Beds and furniture are comfy. The garden is wonderful and huge. We enjoyed the peace and calm of the surroundings.

Traumhafte Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in der Quinta Ode ao Sol sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Ausstattung des Hauses entsprach der Beschreibung und den Fotos auf der Webseite. Hervorzuheben ist die perfekte Ausstattung der Küche, es mangelte nicht an Geschirr oder Besteck, scharfen Messern und sogar Kunststoffbehälter zur Aufbewahrung waren vorhanden. Im Haus befinden sich zwei Schlafzimmer mit je einem Bad en Suite, die alle durch Schiebetüren miteinander verbunden sind (also: SZ-Bad-Bad-SZ / die SZ und das re Bad können jeweils noch durch weitere Türen betreten/verlassen werden), ein weiteres Schlafzimmer ist auch gleichzeitig der Eingangsbereich (wir haben es zu 4 nicht genutzt, wenn man die Terrassentür als Eingang nimmt (kein Problem) kann man es aber als vollständiges SZ nutzen).

Besonders hervorzuheben ist die super ruhige Lage (Anfahrt über eine sehr gut befahrbare unbefestigte Strasse), der perfekt gepflegte, nicht einsehbare Garten und der große, saubere Pool. Die großen Bäume im Garten halten den Wind ab, man findet mit seiner Liege immer ein schattiges Plätzchen und der Pool wird auch schön warm da er fast den ganzen Tag von der Sonne aufgewärmt wird. Der Verwalter Sean, seine Frau und das gesamte Team haben sich wunderbar seid der Buchung, bei der Ankunft (Nachts um 24.00 Uhr) und auch während unseres Aufenthalts um uns gekümmert. Der Pool und das Haus wurden zwischendurch gereinigt. Leider funktionierte die Sauna im Garten nicht (Knopf defekt), allerdings wissen wir nicht ob wir sie genutzt hätten.... Abends war man vor dem Haus recht schnell Mückenfutter :-)

Eigentlich darf man hier gar nicht so viel schwärmen - es treibt den Preis in die Höhe und das Haus ist schnell ausgebucht, aber wer ein schönes Haus abseits des Touristentrubels sucht, dem wird es hier gefallen. Lagos, mit seiner schönen Altstadt, dem Hafen,der Fischhalle und vielen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Lidl, Intermarché, Pingo Doch) ist nur 15 Min vom Haus entfernt. Genauso lang braucht man mit dem Auto zum Meia Praia Strand, der auch im Hochsommer (anders als die kleinen Buchten) nicht überlaufen war!

Wir werden wieder kommen!
