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! But 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.

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 .

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 all the channels and Sport, BBC, ITV etc 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 expences/ 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!!

Review #55691699


We stayed for a week in this lovely House. 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.

“Beautiful House and Garden”

By Frazer on 21-Oct-2017

This house is large, clean and well-stocked. The outside spaces are wonderful: a lawn, several patios, pool, arbor, bougainvillea and lots of beautful potted plants. You also have a view over Lagos and the valley. The owner was extremely accommodating, even sending over a friend to answer questions and explain how things worked. The housekeeper came by every day and was helpful.
Owner's reply: We are very happy that you enjoyed your time staying in our house - particularly as you had come all the way from the US, with your extended family, to celebrate your wedding anniversary --- a long way from home! We wish you both many more happy celebrations wherever you may be!

“Fabulous holiday”

By Jane on 30-Jul-2017

Oh, what a wonderful holiday! This is a fabulous villa, so spacious and well equipped and in a beautiful and tranquil setting. The charming town of Lagos is just 2 miles away, as are the closest beaches, but we often chose to remain at the villa and enjoy a peaceful swim in the large pool. We had a mixed group of adults and children over the two weeks and Jill was so helpful in providing lots of advance information. The daily maid service from the delightful Ascencao, was a great bonus, and the manageress, Gabriela, was very well informed and provided lots of local information and suggestions for day trips. We all fell in love with Quinta das Casuarinas and didn't want to leave!

“Perfect for Large Family Celebration”

By Grimshaw on 10-Jun-2017

We were having a family celebration for a 70th and a 40th birthday. There were 11 of us from 3 generations comprising of 6 adults and 5 children with ages ranging from 15 months to 71 years of age. We could not have wished for a more perfect place to celebrate. Jill has been most helpful in every way including ordering and arranging delivery of our shopping order for when we arrived. On our arrival Gabriela visited and gave us lots of helpful information. The villa is in a lovely setting only a short drive from Lagos. It is most comfortable with loads of living space and everything one could possibly need is provided. The pool and poolside are a great feature with plenty of sun loungers, shade and beautiful flowering shrubs. The children spent every possible moment they could in the pool and of course the adults enjoyed swimming in it as well. Ascencao, the lovely maid, kept everywhere beautifully clean for us. Our week here passed all too quickly and we were all very sad to leave and wished we could have stayed longer. Many thanks to Jill for providing such a perfect setting.

Superb villa and excellent location

By Margaret T on 16-Aug-2016

Our fourth year here, it is just so good in all ways. The villa itself is very well equipped with everything you need, it is clean and very comfortable. We visited as a family of three generations (nine in total) but there is enough space to spread out and even to find a quiet area to read and relax when needed.
The pool area is lovely with plenty of sun loungers and pool towels. Even has shady areas so you can keep out of the sun but still join in. The location is excellent with Lagos only a short drive away with shops, restaurants, beaches etc.
Our holiday's here are always great.

Fantastic stay!

By Paul D on 27-Jul-2016

We had a great holiday thanks! The girls had a blast to be honest and so did everyone.

The villa is lovely and it has a real charm.

It had everything we needed. Normally we stay at one of the hotels but it was great to be away from it all!
Gabriella was a great help and so was your lovely maid (so sorry I can't remember how to spell her name!).

Hope to stay again soon!

Wonderful location, great villa for family holiday

By Judith on 05-Jul-2016

We were a party of eight adults and one infant. This delightful villa is large and spacious with a variety of areas for quietly relaxing, having fun by the pool or enjoying a big family meal or BBQ. Very comfortably appointed. Peaceful rural location but only minutes from Lagos and it's fabulous beach. The description and photos on the website is entirely accurate. Excellent communications from owner Jill. Gabriela and Ascencao were both very helpful. The opportunity to order groceries ahead of arrival worked very well and allowed us to settle in comfortably the first afternoon and evening. The kitchen is outstandingly equipped. Being a family of foodies, this enabled us to enjoy many memorable meals around the large outside and indoor dining tables. The worst thing was having to leave at the end of the week. I whole heartedly recommend this lovely villa.

“Fabulous Villa - perfect for a large group”

By Hughes on 13-Aug-2015

We brought 9 family and friends to the villa for a week. High up on the hill side it is so spacious, so well equipped and so lovely especially the pool. Very near to Lagos and lots of nice beaches. We had an amazing holiday and would recommend it to all. I would also commend the owner, friendly, personable, efficient and very easy to deal with - made all the difference. We hope to return one day !

“A lovely place for a holiday”

By Taylor on 04-Aug-2015

We had a great holiday at Quinta das Casuarinas, and would all like to return. The villa is plenty big enough, we had 7 adults and 3 children, aged 1, 4 and 5. The pool is lovely and we spent a huge amount of time in it. Lots of places to sit, read, watch, eat etc outside, so we could have sunshine or shade whenever we wanted. The garden is lovely, lots of beautiful and interesting plants. The villa is very well equipped , clean and tidy. A short trip into Lagos and many other small fishing villages and beaches further west.

“Wonderful as ever!”

By Rosemary Lawson on 21-Sep-2014

We first went three years ago and I wrote a review then. Now have just returned after our third visit and am still as ecstatic as I was the first time! Why bother looking for somewhere else when this amazing house, pool and situation has everything you could possibily want. Went first time with all the family and loved it so much have just kept going back. Lagos and all it has to offer with its shops and busy cafe life is only seven minutes drive away and then you come back to complete peace and quiet. All sorts of different things have been added since we first went so each time has been great fun to see what else has been thought of. Just brilliant for and with children, and heavenly quiet, tranquil, and utterly stress free for the older generation. At the risk of repeating myself too much - all I will say is it is just perfect!

“Just Gorgeous”

By McKenna on 25-Jun-2014

We recently had the most wonderful family holiday in this beautiful, homely, secure and clean, charming villa that is just bursting with character. Overall there was not a single complaint from our group of 8 adults, ranging from 62 down to 20 and 2 small children, 4 & 2.5 yrs. The location for us was ideal - private hillside with stunning views yet not too far from the gorgeous little town of Lagos - we had considered renting a car but the morning after we arrived we were visited by the very helpful lady Gabrielle who got us some info on the local bus which is approx. 1.50 per head into Lagos and runs mon-fri. Taxis also very cheap working out at about 2euro a head. I had the luxury of one week here waking up every morning in our v comfortable beds (with useful mosquito nets!) and preparing breakfast in the most stocked kitchen I've ever experienced on hols :) there were many areas to eat in and outside the villa, but the mornings I found it was lovely to sit at the outside dining area just off the kitchen close to the garden. I called it the aviary :) The friendly yet unobtrusive housemaid would then arrive almost daily and do her chores while we all congregated out at the fabulous pool (very clean) We got beautiful weather and so at times if the sun got too hot it was great to be able to sit in the lovely little gazebo or around the many shaded seating areas. The villa is stocked with many beautiful books of every kind, we even found dominoes, playing cards etc in one of the drawers in the sitting room which is a lovely relaxed area with log burner and comfy couches tv dvd etc In the evenings we had bbq's a couple of times and drinks by the pool (lights up beautifully at night) but mostly went to Lagos for dinner (fab restaurants!) The owner Jill was very easy to deal with, friendly, very quick at responding and extremely informative and helpful even arranging to have a big shopping done for us which was waiting for us when we arrived. This family holiday was also my honeymoon and for that the villa was ideal as although there are many areas to be in a group, it is also big enough that there are many private secluded areas also with two of the large bedrooms also having ensuites and the other 3 bedrooms sharing 2 further shower/wc rooms. Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful, unusual, quaint villa with a real 'feel of Portugal' to it which you don't get with some of the more modern designed villas we looked into!

“Spacious and well equipped holiday home. perfect spring getwaway!”

By on 05-May-2014

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house! Really comfortable beds and a lovely kitchen and dining room with log burner to keep us cosy! This was our second stay and we hope to return in the autumn! The artistic owners have created a fabulous atmosphere - delightful paintings! There were so many dining and seating areas around the house and garden - we were spoilt for choice! Lagos is just a few minutes away, lots of fab beaches and bars, but our favourite are the west coast beaches which are not crowded and perfect for long walks. This villa was a great find!

“Perfect holiday”

By on 12-Dec-2013

This house was perfect for our large group of friends. There are several gathering places both inside, in the well furnished sitting rooms, and outside on the extremely spacious patios . However because the villa is so large, it was always possible to find privacy when you want it. Everything is in good condition, obviously very well looked after, and the house is very comfortable. As I am a very keen cook, it was wonderful to find such a well equipped kitchen. The pool is large and always sparkling, and the gardens are lovely, with colourful flowering plants and trees and pots full of herbs. Lagos is only a few miles away, and is a charming little town with excellent restaurants The beaches are wonderful. We especially enjoyed the beach restaurants, although it was hard to drag ourselves away from the wonderful villa. We hope to return soon!

“Lovely family holiday”

By on 04-Jul-2013

We had such a lovely holiday at Quinta das Casuarinas. The house was large enough to easily accommodate 6 adults and 3 small children and with 2 separate living rooms and numerous relaxing outside areas, we were able to spread out which meant that we didn't feel like we were getting under each other's feet. The house is extremely well equipped, far beyond the normal expectations of a holiday home and maintained to a high standard. The pool is cleaned regularly and was literally sparkling when we arrived! Their gorgeously helpful staff came to clean nearly every day and offered a lot of information about the local area. We regularly toasted them on an evening, especially since our party included 2 sets of exhausted parents who were more than ready for a proper break. The beaches to the west of Lagos were quiet with minimal development, especially those recommended by the housekeeper (map provided). those around Lagos are busy but still stunning all the same. Our only complaint is that we are now spoiled with our expectations of holiday homes significantly raised!

“Excellent and homely accommodation”

By on 09-Jun-2013

I stayed at this beautiful Villa last week with some friends who actually booked the holiday so I had no idea where I was staying. What a lovely surprise. The accommodation was superb, very clean, very spacious bedrooms and lovely bathrooms/shower rooms which looked newly re-furbished, mostly en-suite bedrooms too with lovely views of the pool or garden. The Villa was well stocked with everything to make the stay comfortable. I have never know such a well-equipped Kitchen. There were lots of different sitting out areas to catch the sun at different times of the day and a beautiful pool area with wonderful views. Excellent location to Lagos, just 2 km out of town with a small village close by to walk to. I can highly recommend this luxury Villa.

“Brilliant property, great location, superb facilities, simply the best.”

By M Thurston on 02-Mar-2013

We stayed in this property during August 2011, we had such a superb time we all went back again in 2012. We had an extended family holiday, grandparents, parents and four children. The property easily accommodated us all with a great feeling of space. There are lots of shaded nooks to find outside if you want a quiet hour with a good book. Only one hour from Faro airport, 10 mins drive into Lagos town and beaches. The villa is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need, the kitchen had plenty of everything. Most days we would buy fresh fish from the fish market in Lagos and cook outside on the bar-b-q in the evenings. We all want to go back very soon.

“A wonderfully, memorable experience.”

By Outhwaite on 02-Mar-2013

My husband and I traveled with our two sons,their wives and 3 grandchildren. The villa is spacious,comfortable and homely, and because it is so spread out, over one floor, there is quite a lot of privacy. Everything you could possibly need is in the villa so we had to drag ourselves away to the beach, but it was well worth the car journey, as was Lagos for the child friendly restaurants and interesting streets.The supermarkets are good. The little ones just loved the pool and the extensive grounds, where they played for hours safely, and later the adults relaxed, each evening, around the table by the BBQ. Magic! ( It's great that you can pay Jill in sterling in England and she is extremely helpful)

“I wish i had been able to rate it amazing !”

By Rosemary Lawson on 21-Feb-2013

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.
