Lagos, one of the most popular towns in the Algarve is a top holiday destination and has it all! From history to culture, beaches and climate to a lively, easygoing and friendly atmosphere all year round. Steeped in history it was from here that Henry the navigator set sail on his discoveries along with many other Portuguese explorers.

The heart of the old town is a very quaint typically Portuguese town with narrow cobbled streets and many shops, bars and restaurants and entertainment. There are many places of interest to visit such as museums, churches, historical monuments, mini-zoo and activities to do in and around Lagos such as boat trips along the coast, dolphin tours, fishing, surfing, diving, kayaking, mini-golf and much more.

Lagos is easy to reach from Faro or Lisbon airport with direct bus routes.


The Algarve, situated on the extreme South of Portugal, offers gorgeous sandy beaches, warm water and glorious sunshine nearly all year-round with over 3000 hours of sunshine a year and idyllic temperatures average temperature in winter of 14ºC and 24ºC in summer, rarely going below 12ºC during winter and reaching as high as 28ºC or 30ºC in July and August, which are ideal for playing golf and other sports. The Algarve boasts some of the best-unspoiled beaches in Portugal, a perfect setting for water sports, sailing, big game fishing and other maritime activities. The majority of the finest championship golf courses are concentrated in this region, which attracts a steady influx of golfers all year round. There is no shortage of sporting and leisure activities for the non-golfer such as tennis, horse-riding, bird watching, walking, swimming fishing, sailing, jet skiing and micro light flying. There are also a growing number of well-equipped gyms and health and beauty salons locally


The Algarve has numerous lovely beaches to suit all tastes. From the family beaches to surfing beaches further west. The main and largest beach in Lagos is Meia Praia in town. There are other popular beaches in Lagos such as Porto do Môs, Praia da Batata, Praia do Estudante, Praia do Camilo amongst others. Praia da Luz is also a very popular family beach in the quaint town of Luz near Lagos.


Lagos boasts a lovely Marina distinguished with many awards and located very close to the Lagos centre. There are bars and restaurants overlooking the opulent yachts and a boat repair yard next to the marina. Behind the marina facilities in the newly built railway station.


The Algarve is a golfer's paradise welcoming enthusiasts from all over the world. With long sunny summers and mild winters, it is the perfect environment for enjoying the great outdoors. There are two excellent courses, the nearest being Palmares,1.5 kilometres away. An interesting course with fabulous views over the Bay of Lagos, Palmares is a blend of links-style golf on the first nine holes with a second nine that winds through groves of almond and fig trees. A 15 minute drive away is Quinta da Boavista Golf & Spa Resort with far reaching views of the Bay of Lagos to the east and the Monchique mountains to the north.

About Carla & José

Originally from Zimbabwe the owners Mario and Manuela have been living in Portugal for more than 25 years. Currently their daughter Carla manages their rentals.

Carla has another two holiday rentals on Homeaway.

Meia Praia Garden Apartment Property No. 829566

Lovely 2 bedroom/2 bathroom ground floor with garden and pool near Meia Praia beach and marina. Sleeps 4+1

Encosta da Marina Apartment Property No. 6492133

Lovely luxury new 1 bedroom/1 bathroom 2nd floor with large balcony next to marina and walking distance to beach and town centre. Sleeps 4

Why Carla & José chose Monte Judeu

Lagos was the favourite of all the Algarve towns the owners travelled to so decided to buy and settle here. The property was an old run down portuguese farm but with fantastic views of the countryside and a very peaceful and relaxing environment and yet only 15 minutes drive to Lagos town centre and beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful and tranquil countryside views away from it all and yet close to town centre and beaches. Excellent for retreats and peaceful days reading under a tree by the pool.

Great for groups - 3 cottages accommodating 15 guests

Guestbook comments from the manager

É com muito gosto que vos envio este mail, relativo à nossa estadia de férias 2012.

A Quinta da Belavista é um lugar muito tranquilo, a paisagem da serra é magnifica, as praias são lindas.

A estadia na casa foi excelente, a recepção deixou-nos muito sensibilizados um bolo maravilhoso e no frigoríficos entre outros mimos um vinho branco.

A piscina e o jardim são um local que muito apreciamos, nos quais passamos gratos momentos.

Não quero deixar de agradecer à Sra. D. Manuela e Sr. Mário que tão bem nos receberam em sua casa .

Um grande abraço.

Lovely relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

Nice cottage and great hosts, went with family and had a lovely relaxing time. It's just outside Lagos, and you can just hang around the pool or venture out and about.

Beautiful, quiet, amazing hospitality, fantastic holiday.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish the hospitality was excellent, Mario and Manuela couldn't do enough for us, even having a amazing freshly baked Carrot Cake on our arrival and some cold drinks in the fridge. Our hosts were very chatty, would often stop to talk while they were going about their daily tasks, but without being intrusive. During our stay, unfortunately I contracted a sore throat, which turned into what appeared to be swollen glands, being in Portugal and not knowing the area I contacted Carla, who spoke very good english and part owner of the property. After various conversations and emails about a possible hospital visit, I was advised which medication to purchase and which Parmacist to visit. Mario and Manuela asked how I was feeling throughout the rest of the holiday.

The villa's are lovely and quaint, they were possibly in need of a little updating, but quite frankly absolutely perfect for us, and all in a beautiful setting, so quiet and peaceful, lovely pool which our daughters loved and a 5 / 10 minute drive away from stunning beaches and lovely villages.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect holiday, (minus the sore throat of course), would definitely recommend, before Mario and Manuela retire.

Kind regards - Nicholas, Lyndsey, Ella and Holly x

Just what we needed to have an relaxing holiday, we have been going to Lagos for 30 years now and this place is now one of our top 3 for renting, we stopped in the Victor cottage (yellow) it has all the Charm and rustic look you need. The only one negative for us was the size of the double bed only a 4" adult !

We will be returning next year with grandchildren and parents

Thanks for lovely holiday

A wonderful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

As we arrived we were at once made feel as we had arrived somewhere a bit special. Mario and his beautiful wife Manuella showed us to our cottage across a beautiful garden with many shaded areas as well as many sun traps. The pool as with the BBQ area were spotless and very suitable for a family . The cottage was well stocked with dishes and all you may need in a kitchen, all linen was fresh and clean and the bathroom again shining . The design of the home was ideal for this part of the world, both evenings and morning could be enjoyed from our own patio. We found this a super location to visit the Algarve and loved the true feel of Portugal without any trappings of commercialism . If we ever find ourselves in this part of the world again we would always pick to stay here.
