Imagine sharing a villa in a great location, with the luxury of space, in a lovey rural setting with extensive views towards Lagos and the sea, with your family and friends?

Quinta das Casuarinas is away from any developments! Just outside the village of Portelas - the village has a small shop, a bar and a couple of typical Portuguese restaurants serving BBQd fresh fish, prawns etc . it is only a stones throw away from Lagos and all its 21st century facilities.

A comfortable, family friendly villa set in three acres and with a pool surrounded by a large terrace - all just for you!

With the added bonus of lots of spots to escape the crowd with a good book or just to spend time in contemplation. Then lovely areas for getting together for BBQs, drinks, coffees and afternoon tea!

Quinta das Casuarinas for over 30 years, has been our beautiful, spacious, comfortable, first or second home.

The villa is set in 3 acres of mature grounds and although not isolated, has a wonderful feeling of privacy and is surrounded by fencing and / or hedging.

A perfect location with just a short drive into Lagos and everything it has to offer.

Family friendly and spacious.

My Web Site has lots of extra photos, information and a floor plan and emails from guests in 2021 & 2022 .

So to get a more complete picture please visit my Quinta das Casuarinas web site .

Our southerly panoramic views are towards the village of Portelas and the historic old town of Lagos ( only 2 miles away) and the sea where there are miles of beautiful clean, sandy beaches. There are Beach bars aplenty for drinks, coffees, ice creams, salads, delicious fresh fish, chicken piri piri, delicious garlic prawns ---- and many other tasty options!

Bougainvillea, Morning glory, Oleander and Acacias grow abundantly around the villa.

There are many covered, shaded areas for escaping the midday sun - one of which overlooks the huge securable pool terrace and our new Octagonal Pergola on the pool terrace itself, both providing seating for those that like some shade and also for the supervision of young children in and around the pool.

Plus other peaceful spots for those needing to escape the crowd for a quiet read!

The newly furnished alfresco dining area, with seating for 12 people and a large BBQ, is just above the pool terrace. There are speakers for your own music here --- just plug in your MP3 player ---

Looking west there are further covered areas ( just outside the family sitting-room / kitchen ) - a second dining area, great for breakfast or meals away from the pool. Plus a comfortable outside ‘sitting-room’ from which to enjoy your morning coffee or evening drinks with a view of the garden and setting sun.

There are many beautiful golf courses within easy driving distance. Tennis courts in Lagos. Water sports on local beaches . Horse riding stables. Plus surfing only a 1/2 hour drive away on the west coast.

We have all mod cons! Telephone, Wi-Fi with boosters , New TV set top box - with a wide selection of channels and many current films included. A DVD player, lots of DVDs and books ( including reference books & cookery books).

There are reliable people, just a phone call away, to help and advise on anything and everything - sort out any problems --- however small

Some of our guests extend their holidays by flying to & from Lisbon or Seville, spending a night or two discovering those lovely cities and enjoying the drive or train to Lagos and the West Algarve --- with the added bonus that sometimes, there are better flight deals flying to these airports!


We are 5 minutes drive away from many beautiful sandy beaches all around Lagos. On Meia Praia you can walk or run for several miles. Windsurfing, sailing, water skiing and jet skiing all available. There is surfing and surf schools on the west coast beaches 1/2 hours drive away. Day trips and equipment can be organised from Lagos, or you can hire boards etc on Cordoama and Armado Beaches.

Occasionally you can surf on the south coast too - but there are no hire facilities here.

The prices are in Euros as MOST of our expenses and taxes are in Euros --- However payment can also be made in Pounds Sterling at whatever the exchange rate is at the time.

FOR SMOKERS ! We ask that smoke outside and use the ashtrays that are provided - Thank you

Perfect Family Holiday

By Sue P & family on 22-Aug-2020

We stayed as a family of 9 (6 adults & 3 children) at Quinta das Casurinas for 2 weeks in late August. We were so lucky to have booked this villa last October for a family birthday celebration unaware of the pandemic which unfolded 5 months later! Throughout the ensuing months of uncertainty the owner was in constant contact, handling our dilemma over the uncertainty of our travel with patience & great understanding as we only finally decided to go on the very last minute! Our decision to stay here as a family turned out to be the perfect solution as the villa more than fulfilled our requirements. We were able to have a perfect holiday as a family & enjoy the fabulous weather the Algarve is famous for. We all enjoyed the beautiful pool every day & were never short of somewhere to sunbathe or rest in the shade as the grounds of the villa offer so many different areas to explore. The villa had everything (&more) for a perfect family holiday in very uncertain times. We felt very safe and were able to sample a couple of the many seafood restaurants in nearby Lagos in a “COVID-19 safe environment”. Special mention too to the housekeeper Asencao who kept the villa spotlessly clean and was on hand to help us when our car had a puncture & arranged for a garage mechanic to come & remove & repair the tyre for us (the same day!!) We highly recommend Quinta das Casuarinas for the perfect family holiday!!

It felt very familiar from the first minute and made us feel welcome. The Landlady was ever so helpful with all our questions before and during our visit, even in these difficult to travel times. All Covid safety regulations were followed on the spot an we felt safe all the time. I can only recommend a visit to Portugal, and if you go, make this house your home.

“I WISH I HAD BEEN ABLE TO RATE IT AMAZING !” Reviewed 21 Feb 2013 One set of grandparents, four parents and five grandchildren all had the most wonderful holiday possible. The villa could not have been more perfect, fantastic pool, lots of sitting/eating out areas so no-one ever felt on top of each other. Brilliant kitchen with every conceivable device from Magimix, dish and clothes washers, two fridges I(one for the wine!), huge gas barbeque, most comfortable beds and a lovely Portugese ladyl who seemed to come in every day tidying up. So quiet and peaceful and yet only a seven minute drive away from all the bustle of Lagos with its great shops, cafes and night life. There is also a fantastic beach there but we were too happy -and lazy - where we were to go. It's only an hour, on a very good road, from the airport so once you pick up some groceries from an excellent supermarket on the way, your holiday can start almost immediately. < 1 2
