About David James

My wife and I fell in love with Portugal, particularly the area around Lagos. We built two beautiful houses just outside the city where we enjoy the ambiance of the city and the beauty of the countryside. We are pleased to invite our visitors to be our neighbours for a while in sunny Algarve.

David James purchased this villa in 2007

Why David James chose Colinas Verdes

The area combines the convience of near by city of Lagos with many fantastic restaurants and super-markets. There are many first class golf courses within 10-15 mins drive and numerous unspoild beaches nearby. The area around the house abounds with many varieties of bird life.

What makes this villa unique

After enjoying sand, sea, golfing, fishing, sailing...etc imagine returning to this beautiful villa in private surroundings. Enjoy a glass of wine while you watch the Sun go down and you can have a clear view of the Milky Way at night. In the morning you will be awakened by the sound of birdsong. If you are lucky,in the evening you can even hear a nightingale sing.

Absolutely Fabulous - we can't wait to rebook!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife and three kids (aged 13,12 and 11) over the October half term of 2017.

It was,honestly, the best family holiday we have ever had.

The villa is HUGE and provided everything we needed and the location is remote - with incredible views and tranquility - but still only a short drive to Lagos, and other wonderful little quaint villages and towns.

The kids were in their element with the games room and the pool as areas that they never wanted to leave; we literally had to shoehorn them out of the pool everynight.

The outside BBQ area was brilliant and we enjoyed a few bbq evening meals.

So private, so perfect, so amazing.

We were sad to leave and are in the process of rebooking to go back next year as we loved it so much.

Love the place, can we move in permanently please?

Great family holiday

  • 4 of 5

A lovely villa in a quiet and private hillside location with a distant sea view. The kitchen was well equipped, great indoor and outdoor space. The pictures and description on the website are all accurate. Good sized pool and outdoor space meant we didn't spend much time indoors, except for sleeping. Having David and Joanne nearby was reassuring and helpful. Lagos beautiful - recommend grotto boat trip!

Would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return soon.

Wonderful family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

David and Joanne greeted us on arrival with a cake and some wine, which was a very nice touch. Since they are neighbours to the villa it was comforting to know that they were at hand if we needed anything.

The villa itself had everything we needed for our family of 6 and our boys loved the pool, hot tub and games room. It is well maintained and in a perfect private spot with a great view. Lagos is only a 10 - 15 minute drive away. We would love to return!

Dream villa on hill with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful villa, ready for any kind of vacation - relaxing, romantic, partying or family reunion. It is ideally located on a hill with no immediate neighbours, so you really get the feeling that you are alone and can completely disconnect from the daily hassle. The owners wished us a warm welcome with fresh cake and some wine. They live nearby and are very responsive so you can always ask them for help.

The only disappointment was that not all the beds were made when we arrived and we found lots of hairs in the bathroom of the master bedroom. Also be sure to inquire beforehand about the hot tub if you would like to use it, it wasn't clear to us from the website description that 'optional' means 'ask us beforehand to turn on the cleaning pump and heating for you at a daily electricity fee'.

But overall a place we can warmly recommend and will not disappoint any type of visitor.

Holiday september 2015

  • 4 of 5

The fantastic villa is located in the hills near Lagos.The place and the villa are excellent, the villa has it all, the pool is incredibly fine. And it's breathtaking quiet. The views of the hills and villages, is particularly beautiful. For entrepreneurs like us a place to really rest. But Lagos, a beautiful historic town with restaurants and shops is also just a 10-minute drive away. In short, a villa for a wonderful holiday. David and Joanne, Thanks for living in your villa.

Beautiful villa and wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

Joanne and David run a beautiful home in this peaceful location. We loved the area which , although so quiet, is only a short distance away from the restaurants and beaches near Lagos.

Everything had been thought of for our comfort and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The villa is spacious and well looked after and well equipped.

I would thoroughly recommend.
