Why Carlos Capaz chose Caldas da Rainha

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have rented many villas in europe but found Casa do Lago certainly met all our holiday criteria......such views!!!

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

Both Carlos & Isobel were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them...

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

We stayed in Casa do Lago for a week in August 09. The villa was easily big enough for our family of 4 adults (2 parents & 2 grandparents) and 5 children, and if we'd kept the baby in our room could have accomodated the other set of grandparents too.

The villa was simply stunning and exceeded even our high expectations having viewed the website.

It has extraordinary views over the lagoon and out to the ocean. The infinity pool is fabulous and the gardens look great but better still include a childrens play area, hammocks, outdoor gym, and crazy golf. This was paradise for the kids (3yrs to 14 yrs) who also loved all the toys and games in the villa: bikes, table tennis, table football, frisbees, inflatables, body boards, bikes (helmets even provided), trikes etc... For the adults there with at least 9 sun loungers by the pool, a wine fridge, sun shades on windows that opened and shut with the sun and bikes and gym equipment for the more adventurous.

We used the outdoor bbq and the lady who looks after the house for the owners was able to arrange for people to cook for us one evening without a problem.

The villa was cleaned and linen changed mid week, and the pool regularly cleaned. All the bedrooms were big, en-suite, with floor to ceiling glass door/windows onto the patios or balconies.

Furnishings and equipment in the villa are all as we'd have at home, not the usual 'rental' standard. Touches such as all switches being labelled and a pc provided with broadband made the stay even easier.

The beach in Foz was busy, but a 25 min drive around to the other side of the lagoon and leads to acres of almost empty golden sand, with the added pleasure of looking across at your own villa.

Very happy to recommend!

Owner's Response: Our aim is to have all clients very satisfied and we will never be happy with less than that. All comments are welcome and we feel very gratified when clients spend their time writing such nice words about our villa. Despite our guests positive opinions, we will not stop and very soon we will start a new improvement process in the villa with the installation of new facilities.

Outstanding lagoon/sea view just outside village. House is modernly furnished throughout. So disabled friendly. So much space inside and out. Extras galore with bikes, crazy golf course, solar heated swimming pool (even in Feb not too cold) etc etc.... Helpful host with local info and even posted back a piece of luggage that we left behind. Perfect for the 12 of us to get away from it all.

Superb modern villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Walking group of 8 adults. Oct 2015.

The group have hired many villas over the past 20 years and this is probably the best of them all. The villa has panoramic views and a 15m swimming pool heated to at least 29C. The facilities were complete as described, with ample hot water available at all times, a kitchen which was well equipped for group catering and a BBQ outside which worked well. The owner quickly sorted an internet reception problem and other minor issues which occurred during our stay. There are a number of shady areas in the garden but we would suggest that more shade could be provided near the pool.

Finally may we thank Carlos for his attention and consideration during our stay.

Jack and Mary and all the group

Fabulous Villa - spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 adults (one wheelchair user) and 2 babies who arrived at the Villa on Saturday afternoon to be greeted by the owner Carlos who welcomed us all. He had kindly put some milk, butter, cheese, cold meats and yoghurts in the fridge, fruit on the table and left beer and wine for us too. As we drove down the drive to the Villa we were stunned by the views and were delighted that the first impressions were indeed as good as the video we had seen on line. The villa is very well maintained, the en-suite bedrooms are all large with fantastic views over the Lagoon and beyond out to the Atlantic. Carlos had arranged for a hoist and electric bed for the accessible suite on the ground floor which had a bedroom and bathroom that were both spacious enough for my husband's electric wheelchair. The property is perfect for a large family or group of friends and fantastic for wheelchair users. The Villa was very comfortable, very clean, and had a well equipped kitchen and laundry room (needed with small ones). The dining and sitting room has fantastic views across the lagoon. There were bikes, helmets (2 baby seats on bikes) in the garage which also saw many games of table tennis played. The pool had a hoist for getting my husband into the clean, very warm water. The pool area is surrounded by a glass safely barrier and had a children’s swimming area within the pool itself. It was lovely to swim and look over the lagoon. The villa has a BBQ, crazy golf, small indoor gym, small outdoor gym, hammocks, children's play area and plenty of outside space. In short the Villa was home from home. The beach is a short drive from the Villa and there are restaurants and food shopping within a short driving distance too. This property is an ideal holiday location for a large group especially with a disabled member amongst them. Can’t wait to go back.

Fantastic wheelchair accessible villa

  • 5 of 5

I am a wheelchair user and we had found it difficult to find an appropriate villa for a large family holiday. Having come across Casa do Lago we had high expectations which were surpassed.

The view is spectacular and everyone loved the pool. The villa is well appointed and Carlos is a great host.

The wheelchair access is great- the ground floor step free and bathroom worked well.

We are already planning our next trip!
