Further details indoors

The unique feature of staying in a wooden lodge is that it is fully insulated and double- glazed, meaning that it's cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The air-conditioning keeps it cool or warm, no matter the weather and no cold floor tiles underfoot due to its high quality hardwood floors throughout. And remember, we pride ourselves that there are no hidden charges for extras when you stay at cactus lodge everything is included: gas, electric, internet access, bedding, towels, etc even a hair dryer, its just like being at home, but in the sun. We also supply a free welcome pack which includes: tea, coffee, sugar, drinking water, milk, beer, wine, bread, butter, Portuguese ham and biscuits.

Further details outdoors

Cactus Lodge sits within 5000sqm of natural landscape, with its own garden, and private parking area. The owner's villa is in the opposite corner of the land should you require anything, as they want your stay to be the best possible. Outside there are sun loungers if you wish to soak up the sun, or you can sit/dine on the covered patio area, whilst cooking lunch on the BBQ.

Only a few minutes drive away are some excellent Restaurants and Bar/Coffee shops. We are very lucky with our location, as shopping, water parks, Zoo marine, beaches, and golf are all about a 15 minute drive away. Just a 10 minute drive will take you to Algoz, a local town that has market once a month, where you can practice your haggling and get a bargain.

Changeover day

We always try to accommodate our guests with change over days, so we try to be as flexible as possible, but days and times will be affected by the previous guests departure, so please contact us for your required dates and arrival/departure times.

The Algarve region

The Algarve has something to offer everyone, tempting golf courses on which international tournaments are played, superb tennis and riding, and every watersport you can think of. Walk through the busy local markets to choose from traditionally- made handicrafts such as matgrass baskets and rugs, beautiful hand-painted pottery and tiles, beaten copperware and intricate bobbin-lace. At night visit one of the many glittering casinos or clubs, or simply sit outside beneath the stars and sample some freshly-caught seafood.

"Very relaxing location tucked away."

We found our recent trip to be all that we wanted.

The location of the lodge is tucked away in the lovely countryside of Portugal and just what we were after. (15-20 min drive to the coast).

The lodge itself was very clean and full of the latest mod. coms that one would expect, and the BBQ was well used (thanks Phil).

We found our hosts to be very approachable and always helpful, and the little welcome pack was not expected though we felt went that extra mile. Nothing was too much trouble for Steph and Phil.

We would recommend this location for those who want to take in the natural beauty, as a keen cyclist I found it an ideal location.

Having two you small young girls we felt safe and secure in the location and they enjoyed the outdoors.

Hi guys Thank you for such lovely comments, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Cactus Lodge, and we hope one day to see you in the Algarve again.

Hi Guys Thank you for such a lovely review, we are both so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and you are welcome back any time. Hope you liked the Piri Piri sauce as your departing gift, and every time you use it you think of your time in the Algarve x

My partner and I recently stayed at the "lodge" for a 2 week holiday. After arriving in the Algarve and collecting our car we drove from Faro airport to the lodge in no more than 40 minutes. The lodge is located in a lovely little village near to the town of Algoz ( a very typical Portuguese town , that holds a very good market every month). The lodge is at the end of a small lane with no more than 6 houses the entire stretch of the lane. The lodge is on a corner of the owners land but is very much by itself and has its own drive.
We were greeted by the owners who welcomed us and took us through the features and layout of the accommodation. They had provided a very comprehensive welcome pack including things like bread , milk , tea bags , coffee , soft drink and water.(something we had not expected but was very welcomed. As well as the welcome pack there was a very useful pack of information about the lodge and surrounding area , things to do etc. This proved to be really useful in giving us ideas for things to see and do during our stay. Although the villa does not have its own pool the owners have an arrangement with a small villa complex in walking distance to use the pool there , this venue is run and owned again by Brits and we found them to be really friendly.
The lodge provides everything you would need for a great romantic holiday away together or a busy family break. The 2 bedrooms are of great size and the kitchen is better equipped than you will find in any self catering hotel's or even similar villa's. The location though has to be this lodge's location. Far away enough from the tourists and towns but near enough you can be amongst the best the Algarve has to offer in only 15 mins. Although villas are near by , you very much get the feeling you are in the middle of no where and is very private. We also found the presence of a bbq to be a welcomed addition , we had a number of nice evenings in cooking on our very own bbq!
All in all we had a very stress free holiday in an amazing place and some of the most accommodating people you will ever be lucky enough to come across. We have already booked out next break in the lodge and would recommend without hesitation.

Hi Guys it was a pleasure having you stay at Cactus Lodge, and what a thrill to hear you got engaged while you stayed here, we look forward to seeing you next time.

"Excellent place to stay - especially for friends of nature."

If you look for a quiet place for your holiday and you love watching the birds and the nice garden which surrounds the Cactus Lodge, then you are here on the right place. The Cactus Lodge is excellent equipped with anything you need and in a very fine state. It is also a brilliant place if you want to explore the Algarve coastline, beaches, villages and cities. And if you need any recommendation or help - Phill has the answer. We enjoyed our stay of 2 weeks very much and we liked also the cat and the 2 dogs from Phill and Stephanie. The Cactus Lodge and its landlord can be highly recommended by us.

It was a pleasure having you stay at Cactus lodge, and we miss you playing the Violin on those hot summer evenings, while we sipped a glass of wine.
