More Guests comments: I just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to say what a fantastic holiday we had & what a lovely villa you have. The villa is very luxurious and in a great location, I would recommend to anyone. We tried most of the restaurants you recommended & thought Sa Roque was the best. However, we did find a gem of a restaurant when we were there & feel we must recommend to you as it more than worthy of a recommendation in your holiday

brochure (which was very useful). It sounds daft but I cant remember the name of the restaurant but it was located on the top floor of the new fish market on the main road. Prices compare with Sa Roque, but food was much better. Regards Tim & Kath from Bristol

Thank-you very much for the wonderful villa 'Casa Jolie' that you rented to us. We have had a fantastic week, we went dolphin watching and that was a fantastic experience for both us and the children. We wish we could have stayed longer but unfortunately due to school holidays it was not possible.

More guest comments: Your villa is top class and made our holiday very special indeed, the directions you gave were spot on and I appreciate your attention to detail, these small things all help to take the stress out of our holiday.

Thank you for the welcome pack on arrival, it came in so handy and the operating instructions for everything made using the kitchen appliances very simple - excellent.

Casa Jolie is an excellent base to explore the Algarve, being within walking distance to some beautiful restaurants in Lagos, especially agreed with comments made from your previous guests regarding the restaurant above the new fish market, its excellent!! Had a fabulous BBQ night on our last Friday at Linda's Bar on the beach, food was excellent, great cocktails amidst a beautiful romantic night time setting.

All in all we had a great holiday my only regret is we didn't book for two weeks! Alison Reavey and friends.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a note to say that we have just got back from Casa Jolie and we had an amazing time. We both loved it & Sam was amazed by the swimming pool. It was an amazing Villa & we look forward to our next stay, regards Jessie, Gary and Samuel, from Southampton.

Absolutely fantastic could not fault it. Only one thing I would have changed,

I would have booked for four weeks not two weeks, had I known what I was going to get! Said Mrs Patricia Galbraith, from Northern Ireland

A family from Derbyshire stayed second week of April 06 - and wrote:

Holiday went very well - weather was great and the directions/instructions/hints were all of use. We liked Lagos - marina was good and breakfast /evening meals in the restaurants were excellent. What we did like was the location of the villa, close to all amenities and that every evening we could walk into the town, have a meal and wine and walk back. Nice property you have there. Clean/New/tidy/good pool - really excellent

New Year at

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our third visit to Casa Jolie, this time having spent New Year there (we normally go in summer). As ever the villa was spotlessly clean and all facilities were up to their usual high standard. Six people shared the villa this time and we found it to be spacious, comfortable and welcoming. We like to split our time between eating in and at local restaurants. The villa facilities are excellent for the former and the location is excellent for the latter. The Marina at Lagos, 10 minutes down hill walk away, offers a variety of small shops and a wider variety of eating places from snack bars to fine dining. The centre of Lagos is a further 5 minutes away and is an attractive walk along the promenade. Here we found a great variety of eateries and an eclectic mix of shopping opportunites. The area is served, for self caterers, by five supermarkets, all of which feature local produce heavily, the piece de resistance being the fish market (which also sells locally produced fruit and veg) which is open most days.

We spent time walking on the beach, and of course had to have a beverage stop at Linda's on the beach and a splendid meal as well.

Although it was New Year we spent time in the pool at the villa, heated of course, a great asset to use at anytime. We also visited Praia da Luz, although the weather wasn't too kind that day. Most days we would venture down into Lagos in the morning to have a coffee at one of the many cafes, although Bruno's Ice cream parlour was a bit of a favourite, especially with the children.

Lagos is one of our favourite places to while away a peaceful holiday, but with enough to occupy children also. The people, many of whom speak english, are charming and very friendly and the ambience is very special. Casa Jolie is ideally located for a stay in Lagos and provides all the necessary facilities to ensure a most pleasurable experience. You will want to go back - just as we always do!

Owner's Response: I am passionate about providing an excellent service to guests who have chosen any of my properties and who have placed their faith in my ability to provide exactly what they are hoping to find for their holiday experience. This begins with the quality of the property itself, its location and the facilities within. By purchasing modern properties in the very best locations, I then have an excellent base product to offer clients from the outset, add to this good information and the best 'on site' staff with positive attitudes to look after the property and you are then certain to provide the client with peace of mind, allowing them to relax and to enjoy their holiday. It is helpful that the property has a modern and fresh feel to its internal and external areas, and important that all appliances are new, or working well and regularly serviced. My own policy is to visit each property 3 times each year for a two week period in March, October and again in early December, this enables me to organise and check on every aspect of the property and to keep ahead of any minor issues and to ensure that my properties continue to produce happy memories for all of my guests.

Great family holiday property and location

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish the experience of booking to the arrival and throughout our stay could not have been better. Chris the owner looks after you in every way. The villa is really perfect and is in an ideal location. It's much better than the photos suggest!

Casa Jolie.

  • 4 of 5

The whole family had a wonderful time at "Casa Jolie". All 4 of the transfers went smoothly and being able to have the shopping delivered to the villa was very helpful. There was 7 of us and the accommodation was perfect, very clean, spacious and private. We really enjoyed the location being not too far from the local beach one way and a walk into the town the other way.  The canoeing around the bays was beautiful. (By the way Chris, that new restaurant Agridoce we were both dining at on Friday is excellent - best tomahawk steak ever!). We look forward to returning one day.

Splendid property in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The property is well equipped and the pool just right for bathing and keeping cool day and evening. There is a fabulous fish market in Lagos a 15minute walk or 2minute drive away so we bought fresh fish most days and cooked on the BBQ. Also had some delicious meals eating out as there is a good selection of quality restaurants. The local beech is a 10-15minute walk away or again 2minute drive if you have a car. The beech is as you would expect, golden sand with a clear sea with good waves warm enough to swim and spend time in. Also some water sports you can buy and some shacks selling sunbeds and drinks. All in all a great holiday - will certainly miss the evenings being in the pool drinking wine !

Owner's Response: I am delighted to hear that guests are taking advantage of the plentiful variety of fish available at the fish market. Lagos has many wonderful restaurants but it is great to hear of guests enjoying cooking 'at home' and enjoying the fresh produce. It makes for a great all round holiday experience. Chris (owner)

home from home with wow factor

  • 5 of 5

The property was extremelly clean and every bit of luxury but also very funtional it was home from home. The customer service was more than 10 out of 10 it was over and above, it is very close to all ameneties but also quiet at night time. Only advice i would give if you have children under 5 take a buggy as there is a hill you have to go up and down a lot. The lagos harbour is great for eating out and drinking and only 20 minutes walk. This was a great family holiday and one we wont forget thanks to the great apartment and customer service

Casa Jolie, Lagos.

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from spending two weeks in the sun at the fabulous 'Casa Jolie' and what a great place to spend a holiday.

On arrival, the first impression is that a good deal of consideration has gone into choosing this property, the location is great, in a quiet cul-de-sac, a short (10 minutes) walk from the marina or the beach.

The villa is modern, spacious, spotlessly clean and very well equipped for self catering. We like to spend as much time eating out as in so this was perfect for our needs and the provided barbeque made a great addition to eating al fresco.

The marina has plenty of bars and resturants to choose from and there are even more in the town itself, just another five minutes walk along the beautiful promenade. We particularly liked Millenium Jardim which is in town just up the hill (South) from the square.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 'Casa Jolie' and Lagos, what a fabulous combination, also Chris Bradfield who has been a pleasure to deal with, very friendly and helpful.

Finally, I ought to mention the outstanding information pack provided which contains very clear and concise instructions on travelling to the villa.

Only three minutes by car are the beaches of 'Praia Dona Ana' arguably one of the Algarves most famous beaches, 'Praia Porte De Mos, and the villages of 'Praia de Luz' and 'Salema' exploring at its best! The A22 motorway is just 1.5km away from this property, out of sight, but close enough to make the journey to and from the airport easy and in one straight line!.
