Reviewed 28 Oct 2017“Dream villa.
The best holidayrental we have ever had in Portugal”
The villa is 5 minutes drive from Lagos town so you do need a car as we did. It's isolated in a very calm area just on the edge of a small typical Portuguese village, a true paradise on earth. The owners who live in the villa nearby were lovely and very helpful whenever we needed anything. The villa was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The rooms are big and well decorated and the thick walls kept the villa fresh while it was boiling hot outside. The layout of the villa was perfect, with all the bedrooms opening onto a beautiful big terrace and the biggest pool ever. My whole family adored this place and we have planned to rent it again next year
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We so glad you enjoyed your stay in our villa and thank you for leaving the villa tidy and clean which is always appreciated and your complimentary comments. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
The best villa we have ever rented in the Algarve
By Gislain G. on 19-Jul-2017
We have been renting villas around Lagos every summer since 15 years now and this one has by far beaten our quality/price expectations. It's actually a renovated Portuguese farm but although big, it has loads of charm.
It's very calm and peaceful, if you hate having other villas overlooking your pool and terrace then this is the place for you. Basically a small paradise. The pool is simply huge and the terrace and gardens well kept and beautiful.
The house was impeccably clean and was well equipped with everything you need and very comfortable beds. Our only complaint is that there were no beach towels!
Good wifi connection, so the kids were happy.
We will definitely be renting this villa again next year!
Sad to leave
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a such a nice review and thank you for taking the villa and leaving it clean and tidy, your comments regarding your beach towels are noted and we will supply them next year when we look forward to your return.
Beautiful, spacious house
By Toby N. on 19-Apr-2017
We have stayed at many holiday rentals over the years and can honestly say that this is the best. Spacious, cool, comfortable with a lovely interior and spacious exterior with a large pool. Even on the hottest days the interior remains deliciously cool. The bedrooms are comfortable and elegant and the kitchen and living rooms are extremely generous and well kitted-out. The owners live next door but you'd never know it as the house feels secluded and private. When we had a very minor problem with the water the owners fixed it almost before we'd noticed. All in all, my whole family loved just hanging out indoors or around the pool and we sincerely hope to return in the near future. We also had many happy excursions to Lagos and beyond. A gem of a house with a lovely atmosphere.

The house is an "L" shape around a lovely pool where there is plenty of shade from the midday sun. It is well furnished and comfortable.
We stayed with our children (aged 18 and 20) and their friends who, because of the close proximity of Lagos itself, where able to go into town in the evening with only a short (and cheap) taxi ride home.
The owners live next door. They keep themselves to themselves but are on hand if you need anything.
We would highly recommend it.
