Cozy old beach homes overlooking the sea - Terrace apartment

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights



Terrace apartment

This one-bedroom apartment is ideal for a romantic getaway, and provides comfortable living for two adults. While having a stunning view of the sea, the terrace is completely secluded from any surrounding houses and is an ideal spot for sunbathing during the day, and grilling fish at night while having an evening meal under the stars.

The apartment comes fully equipped with all amenities (fridge-freezer, stove-top oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, coffee-maker and toaster in the kitchen; washing machine in the bathroom - no dryer) and rental includes linens, duvets and bath towels for two people (we can also provide a travel cot upon request).

Parking for ONE car is included.

About the property


Welcome to CasaTrigoso!

Our quirky old property is located just above Dona Ana Beach - one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve - and only a 5-minute drive or 20-minute walk from downtown Lagos. We offer four spectacularly well-located apartments for rental: a one-bedroom terrace apartment and a two-bedroom veranda apartment with stunning views of the sea, a two-bedroom apartment with a large, enclosed patio also facing the sea, and a three-bedroom apartment with a small garden.

Please ask us for our web address, where you can read more about CasaTrigoso, see all our photos, check past guest reviews, and request a booking!

*CasaTrigoso is registered under Alojamento Local 10938/AL.

To note before booking:

* Please be aware that our property is a quirky old beach house and sometimes has quirky old beach house problems (sometimes the gas bottles need to be changed, the fuse may trip, and random things may break). We are a tiny mother-daughter business and we do our very best to quickly solve any issues that may arise, but prospective guests should be fully aware that our apartments are not newly built, do not have fancy stainless steel kitchens or the latest décor. If you would like a new apartment, there are plenty of wonderful options in and around Lagos that you will likely enjoy more than staying with us. If, however, you enjoy cozy old houses with stunning ocean views and plenty of character (and possibly a resident spider or two) then do consider booking with us — we will welcome you with open arms.

Extra fees

1. Additional guests: we charge EUR 20 per person per night for parties of more than four people in the veranda and patio apartments and two people in the terrace apartment.

2. Cleaning fee: for stays under four nights we charge a flat-rate cleaning fee of EUR 100. Stays over four nights are not charged this fee. Because of the way some booking systems work, this fee may be charged by default on your booking and only after are we able to manually remove the fee. We will almost always remember to do this but if not please do let us know so that we can correct it and you are paying the right amount. Thank you!

House Rules

1. Bedding and towels: These will be provided for the number of people in your party. If you stay with us for over a week, someone will stop by on day 7 or 8 with some new linens for you and will ask for your old ones to wash. We will almost always remember to do this, but if not, please just get in touch and we'll fix it.

2. Toilet paper, coal for the grill, etc.: We will provide enough for the first few days, but guests are responsible for purchasing their own.

3. European Union identification law. We require that all non-Portuguese guests (including minors traveling with family) provide us with the following information:

• Full Name

• Nationality

• Date of Birth

• Place of Birth

• Document Type (passport, ID)

• ID/Passport Number

• Country of Issue

• Country of Residence

We can provide additional information on this requirement upon request, but in the meantime here is a short explanation found online: “Since 2015 Portugal has more strictly enforced a long-standing law requiring anyone providing paid holiday accommodation to record the entry, exit, and identification details of all non-Portuguese nationals who use that accommodation. This law has been brought into force in Portugal and most other EU countries at some point since the gradual implementation of the 1990 Schengen Agreement that aims to stop human trafficking and other illegal practices. In this case, it is specifically Article 45 of the Schengen Agreement and the recent Alojamento Local law in Portugal that has brought this rule into sharper focus.”

About Maria Trigoso

We’re a very small mother-daughter business operation that started out rather haphazardly in Lagos in May 2010 over some glasses of wine. The mother is in charge of things ‘on the ground’ - making sure everything runs smoothly when guests arrive, arranging the cleaning, counting bed linens, etc. - the daughter is more on the ‘backoffice’ side of things - making sure emails are replied to, the availability calendar is up-to-date, etc. The property has been in our family for well over 60 years and both the apartments we rent are where we vacationed (and occasionally still do!) as a family back when kids were smaller. It’s an old house and and we’re constantly trying to renovate what we can. This is only the beginning, and we hope to make more apartments available as we have them ready!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Casa Trigoso is a lovely holiday apartment. It is very spacious and ideally located for the beach and walking. It was wonderful eating out on the sunny terrace overlooking the sea and seeing the sunset.

Perfect family stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly equipped for a family. We stayed with our 6 months old baby. We had some rain during our stay but because of the cosy apartment we didn't mind staying at home at all. The view and sound of the ocean are wonderful. From the apartment it is only a few steps to the beach and very easy to make day trips to the surrounding countryside or walk into the authentic village centre. The owners were extremely helpful to make our holiday as comfortable as possible. We would definitely come again and recommend it to others.

Wonderful Apartment, Terrific View

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific 4-week holiday in Casa Trigoso's Terrace apartment. The apartment, with its view looking east over the Atlantic over Dona Ana Beach, was absolutely delightful; and it was equipped with every amenity you can think of. Central Lagos is easily accessible by car/bus (5 minutes) or on foot (15 minutes). We spent many afternoons enjoying the wide variety of excellent restaurants! Our thanks to Maria and Rosa who were most helpful and patient with a couple of Portugal-rookies who needed some guidance at the beginning of our visit.

Perfect place, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

The Terrace apartment provided the perfect setting for a perfect vacation. Just a couple yards from Dona Ana beach (well, its 95-step staircase, actually) and with a view of the rising sun, the fully furnished apartment could not have been a better choice for this first trip to Lagos and the Algarve. Maria was a delight--very helpful and attentive. The apartment became a second home--I'm very much looking forward to making a return visit in 2016.

Schöne Wohnung mit Meerblick und Meeresrauschen

  • 4 of 5

Gut ausgestattete Wohnung mit allem,was man braucht.

Bett etwas schmal,nur eine Matratze und die übliche südländische Bettwäsche mit nur einer Decke.

Dafür immer Meeresrauschen und aus jedem Raum,einschließlich Terrasse Meerblick!

Nur aus dem Tor raus,Treppe runter und man ist am Meer mit seiner wunderschönen Felskulisse.

Leider morgens (5.30 oder 6.00 Uhr!)mehrfach kurzzeitige Ruhestörung durch einen Laubpuster o.ä.,

mit dem wohl Müll gekehrt wurde.

Wenn man empfindlich ist,ist das ärgerlich.Außerdem an zwei Tagen nächtlicher Lärm durch Mieter in der unteren Wohnung,die bis nachts um 2.30 wach waren..Aber das kann man überall haben.Ansonsten ruhige Umgebung.

Kontakte zu der dort wohnenden Verwalterin nur ganz kurz,keine Begrüßung oder Willkommensgetränk oder ähnliches.Eine Flasche Wasser im Kühlschrank wäre nett gewesen..

Auch zur Eigentümerin ,die kurz da war, nur sehr geschäftsmässiger Kontakt,keine Fragen danach,wie es uns gefällt,ob alles in Ordnung ist....

Das fand ich sehr schade.Sehr anonyme Abwicklung.Dafür hervorragende schriftliche Informationen über alles Wissenswerte vorher !!

The area surrounding the property is generally quiet and there are two neighbourhood stores functioning year-round, as well as a small coffee shop open during the summer months. The entire property faces the sea and to one side has a tourist condo and on the other side the cliffs that go all the way to Ponta da Piedade (please check the map provided for info on the surrounding area) - however, the upstairs apartment and terrace is completely secluded from the nearby tourist condo.
