Absolutely amazing.

This villa was everything we hoped for and more. Sitting each morning eating breakfast on the patio with the sun rising over the valley needs to be experienced. The photos do not come anywhere need the palatial aspects of the villa

Having rented many villas for family holidays, I can seriously say that this villa is top of my list. It is beautiful, very clean and has many personal touches which makes it very homely and comfortable. Both the indoor and outdoor areas are perfect and my husband, myself and 2 children had a very relaxing time. I would say that a car is necessary as there much anything around the villa within walking distance. Lagos town was 10/15 minute drive away from the villa and had little gift shops to explore and plenty of restaurants to eat in.

The owner, John, couldn't have been more helpful and Jan, who looks after the villa is brilliant and also very helpful.

I can't recommend this villa enough and will definitely revisit if we return to Portugal in the future.

Fabulous villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in John and Evie's villa in August this year and had an amaing time. I travelled with my partner and three children and it was just perfect for us.

The house is immaculate, it is such a beautiful place. The rooms are spacious, clean and cool, there was more than enough space for the 5 of us. The swimming pool was a huge hit with my 7 and 5 year old, they spent most of their time in it!

We spent most of our time in the garden, which was also great with it's large dining table, swinging chair and many umbrellas. The sun stays in the garden for most of the day too.

The villa is well equipped and has everything you need for your stay. There are fans in the bedrooms, as well as air con, which was needed as it gets quite hot in August.

The area in which the villa is situated is beautiful, I spent many nights sat on the balcony admiring the view. It is in a very quiet area but also a very short drive to the beach and shops.

John and Evie made us feel welcome from the very beginning and gave us lots of information before arriving. The villa is beautiful and we hope to return in the not so distant future.

Very comfortable - Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The villa is only a short drive out of Lagos and well situated in a quiet spot with lovely views. The rooms are light & airy, and are well furnished.

We stayed in mid October - and it was very tranquil with daytime temperatures around 26 -7c. Occasional breezes but that stopped us overheating. It was agreat time to get away.

John & Evie the owners were very welcoming and ready to assist if or as required.

The local shops and supermarkets are well stocked with plenty of excellent produce- particularly fish and shellfish. The kitchen is well equipped and the barbecue great for those meals in, lazing by the pool etc.

For eating out there were a vast array of restaurants serving excellent food - cataplana, fish etc.

We would definitely return to the villa and Lagos.

The villa was just as described in the listing - spacious rooms, very well equiped and with a wonderful private pool, all in a beautiful setting. The villa has lovely views across rolling hills towards the bustling town of Lagos and the sea beyond. Situated on a quiet cul-de-sac of similar villas in a peaceful country location and yet only a short drive from Lagos. You can enjoy both the peace and quiet of the villa and the bustle of Lagos with its shops, restaurants and many other attractions. The villa is also convenient for any number of excellent sandy beaches in the area, many just a short drive away.

We had a lovely relaxing family holiday here, often spending mornings at the beach before returning to the villa for a late lunch and lazy afternoons by the pool. In the evening we either enjoyed BBQ's by the terrace or headed into Lagos where there are restaurants to suit all tastes.

John & Evie (the owners) were happy to help and to pass on their local knowledge if called on but otherwise left us to enjoy the villa and a most relaxing holiday.

We have had many self catering holidays as a family and we would certainly recommend this villa without hesitation.

My family and I enjoyed the most wonderful holiday here.

The settting is superb with lovely views, you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of being in your own private villa yet are only a short drive away from Lagos town with all of the local bars, restaurants and shops.

The villa is beautiful with excellent facilites. We had super afternoons relaxing by the pool and had BBQ's with fresh fish bought from the markets on the sun terrace, heavenly.

John & Evie (the owners) made us feel very welcome and provided very personal touches that enhanced our enjoyment.

Would definately recommend this villa and look forward to returning ourselves.

Car: recommended

The Villa is located between the villages of Portelas and Sargacal, just a five minute drive from the centre of Lagos. This is an ideal location for visiting major attractions along the Algarve, with several championship golf courses, water parks, horse riding and many other activities all within a short drive.

The fabulous Meia Preia beach with its many beach bars and restaurants is a short drive away, or explore the unique and spectacular West Coast, with its brilliant surfing venues.

The villa gives you the chance to enjoy exciting area of the Algarve, but also to enjoy peace, and privacy when you want to relax around your own private pool and gardens.

Golf: There are several major championship courses within a fifteen minutes drive of the Villa.
