My wife she loves cats, is fluent in several languages and works as a teacher in a High School. We are a couple in our fifties.

Carlos Capaz purchased this villa in 2008

Why Carlos Capaz chose Vau

As Silver Coast is a fantastic region ( that we knew very well), we decided to build there our dream property. After discover the land, we found out the place so charming that we decided immediately to buy it and build there the villa of our dreams. We just wanted the best and we did not spare any efforts to achieve our aims. The result was a fantastic villa and an architectural master piece completely turned to the luxury relax, the sun and the views.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is ideal for families with young children looking for facilities like safety gates, swings, children's slide, swimming pool safety fence and enclosed gardens. Adults have use of 2 gyms, sauna, games room and a 6 hole crazy golf course.

Disable accessible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have rented many villas in Europe but found Casa do Lago certainly met all our holiday criteria

With 6 adults & 5 children to entertain there was never a dull moment with the villa's top notch facilities!

The owners were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them!

A great fortnight and a property I have already recommended to our friends

Colin, Liverpool, July 2010

The pictures of this villa don't even do it justice. The home is amazing, spacious,modern extremely well equipped.

This villa is perfect for groups of adults to young families with children

It was immaculately presented and clean, and the owner is only too happy to make your stay enjoyable.

I would be delighted to recommend this Villa to anyone and would love to go back!

David UK

When booking we were a little nervous, but now comparing prices and quality with other villas we've stayed before, Casa Lago is the cheapest we've ever found!

The villa is a cinema star dream place!!

Gorgeous views and great facilities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed recently and found the villa to be as exceptional as the photos led us to believe. We were grandparents, parents and 2 children and we all enjoyed the heated pool, which was vital as the weather was a little on the cold side!! The views are amazing, and the house is equipped with all every day living amenities to make staying there easy. My only criticism would be is that the kids playground isn't fully fenced in and my kids kept on running up the driveway, but that may be more a function of my kids being naughty! Carlos was very helpful in the lead up to our stay making sure we had high chairs and cots as requested and when we arrived, showing us all the things we needed to know about our stay and where local amenities and attractions were on the (basic) map he provided. We would definitely stay again!

Excellent Villa

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 11 enjoyed their stay very much. The villa provided excellent facilities for the children aged 3 to 14.

The facilities for our disabled grandson were very good the hoists, special bed and walk in shower being added advantages we have not been able to find in other villas we have used.

Because our grandson is confined to his wheelchair getting around in the area, which is very hilly was impossible. Fortunately Carlos had helpfully provided a taxi connection which could accommodate a wheelchair,and which was reasonably priced to take us to restaurants and the beach. Because of the surrounding area we still found it necessary to hirer a small car for shopping and to transport some of the rest of the family.

One small thing that would have helped us was perhaps a path directly from our grandson's bedroom to the pool to push him in his wheelchair or shower chair.

In summary I would say we had an excellent holiday in the villa but because of our particular circumstances with the wheelchair etc found the surrounding area a bit remote and difficult to access.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you very much for the review and for your suggestion about the wheelchair path directly from the bedroom to the pool. We promise that next winter it will be built. We understand that people in wheelchairs experience more difficulties to move to and out a car, although it adapted cars are available to hire. The villa is located in a tranquil traditional village, however the city with all modern facilities, is at 10 minutes driving distance. Some people elect this kind of destination, instead of busy resorts, but that is up to the guests preferences. Thank you again for the review.

Amazing villa with great views

  • 5 of 5

This villa is fantastic for large groups. There was 9 of us with 6 adults and 3 kids. The views are amazing and the villa itself is well equipped with everything you might need. The owner Carlos is very helpful and was able to assist with any questions we had. If you want luxury with panoramic views and a beautiful beach 5 mins away this is the place for you!

Ideal family villa!

  • 4 of 5

Situated on a hillside this large spacious villa, had fantastic views, a gorgeous pool and great outside play, entertainment and dining areas. Inside the living/dining room has more than enough room for children to play and families to get together.

Our only slight disappointment was that a couple of the bathrooms were looking rather 'tired'. We mentioned this to Carlos upon our departure and he assured us he'd look into it.

Carlos is delightful and most accommodating. The villa is completely child friendly, this a great family retreat.

Excellent villa for all the family

  • 5 of 5

We all had a fantastic time at the Villa. There were 10 of us in total 8 adults and 2 children and we fitted comfortably in the villa. The heated pool was fantastic as it meant we could go in the pool all day every day. Carlos (the owner) was incredibly helpful and always available when needed. The supermarket was a 10 minute drive and had everything we needed. There were inflatables for the pool at the villa which the little ones were really pleased with. Little ones also loved the fact they could get cbeebies. The pool gate was fab as meant we could keep the children in the shallow end although my 5 year old could stand up in just over half the length of the pool which was great. Amazing views,amazing villa, amazing communication with owner. Thank you Carlos!
