Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Atalaia - Falésia

Multi-unit rustic farm property, close to Porto Mós beach, amazing views

The property is a small farm located on a 30.000sq.mtr. protected piece of land, between the Boavista Golf Resort, and the ocean. There are three houses on the grounds: Casa Velha, the original farmhouse (max. 10 occupants), offering a very large terrace with BBQ, 4 bedrooms, large downstairs split-level living room with fireplace, dining and TV areas and another large sitting room with TV upstairs. Owners reside here some weekends and long holidays. Villa Pocilgo, a charming and cozy 1 bedroom cottage (max. 4 occupants) with open fireplace, next to Casa Velha, with its own terrace and BBQ and sharing the same amazing views across the biological swimming-pool and the gardens, through fig and almond trees and wild fennel, to the sea, . And Villa Celeiro, a very spacious 2 bedroom split-level villa (max. 6 occupants), with mezzanine,terrace.and its own garden with lawn, rockery and pine and almond trees.

One can walk along the cliff path, after crossing the land, either left to Praia de Porto de Mós, or right towards Praia da Luz. The very large biological pool, shard by the 3 houses, looks like a natural lake and is a favourite with most children! It is also a great attraction for migrating birds and small wild ducks which must be chased off the water...

Yoga and meditation: Because of its location and the layout of the grounds, Quinta da Falésia could be an excellent venue for small groups wishing to practice both yoga and meditation during their holidays.

Organic farming and gardening: All cultivation at the farm, including the gardens, is organic, no chemicals are used anywhere on the grounds. Guests wishing to try their hand at gardening are welcome! Just ask the caretakers for tools and a pair of gloves...we are gradually extending the garden areas by pruning and thinning the existing shrubs and succulent plants, then planting the resulting cuttings in protected areas to root or directly where they are supposed to grow into new plants.

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 families; 16 people in total, so needed an appropriately sized villa which also offered private spaces. We found almost everything we were looking for in these three connected properties. The houses are full of character, clean and enjoy a breathtaking view over the fields to the ocean. The houses are stocked with everything you could ever need to make your holiday enjoyable. The owner is very responsive and really wants her guests to have a nice stay. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property for groups looking for an authentic Portuguese villa, with great views and amenities, excellent privacy, yet close to great beaches, golf and nearby towns. Top class!

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5


Les photos ne mentent pas. La propriété est un petit bijou en pleine nature à quelques minutes en voiture du centre de Lagos.

La piscine naturelle est superbe. Il y a tous les équipements nécessaires pour passer de superbes vacances. La gouvernante est très serviable. Bref, on a été très triste quand il a fallu partir.

La seule fausse note est l'état des lits des enfants. Certains grincent bruyamment.

Soooo nice and great!

  • 5 of 5

We are a german family and spend ten days at that place with our 4 year old daughter. I can highly recommend this place and I can only repeat the same things like the others here, who recommended that place as well, they have already said everything. I can not understand, that someone said, it is shabby or kind of dirty inside. I really liked the style there and it is well shown on the fotos - what you see there is what you get! We also loved the little lake with the frogs and ducks there and especially we loved BRUNO, the dog of the host (super friendly and very helpful!). I can image, that this is a perfect place to spend it with other families together, as the houses are close to each other, but you still have your own privacy. We had a wonderful time there, thank you!

Confort et paysage très agréables.

  • 4 of 5

Parfait pour des séjours en famille ou avec des amis. La piscine est très agréable, les enfants ont apprécié. L'habitation est spacieuse et chaleureuse. La décoration est soignée. Le jardin est très plaisant. Il faut juste être au courant qu'il y a un chien sur cette propriété.

Owner's Response: The main farmhouse at Quinta da Falésia is my family's holiday home where each year 4 generations meet at special times. It is let as a family home and perfect therefore for family groups. Our current dog, Bruno is kept in the dog-pen during the day except when he is being walked around the cliff path or across the property by myself, the caretakers or sometimes the guests, if they so wish! Je suis trés heureuse de savoir que cette famille a trouvé l'habitation comfortable et apprecié le soin de la décoration de l'intérieur et des lieux. Les 6 enfants ont bien utilisé les jardins et la piscine biologique.et semblaient être trés contents de leurs vacances à Casa Velha.

Great farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this holiday home with 9 friends and we enjoyed it very much!

When you book a holiday, you often get to see some beautiful pictures of the holiday home, whereas in reality it can be disappointing. But not with Quinta da Falésia! It's absolutely lovely!

It's a charming farmhouse with a cozy and authentic character that gives a homy feeling. Their's a marvellous garden with biological swimming pool and great view at the sea. The ideal place to relax, to have a barbeque, to have a wine at the terrace,...!

The beautiful surroundings are very peaceful and quiet.

From the farmhouse it's only a 10min drive to the centre of Lagos, where you have shops, restaurants, etc. You can also walk to the beach (+/- 20min).

We can recommand this holiday home, especially to families/friends who are searching for a charming authentic place and who enjoy quietness and a beautiful nature.
