The Algarve region

The Algarve region

We invite you to spend some and unforgettable holidays in this picturesque region of Portugal. The weather is very comfortable and sunny from April through to the end of October with a gentle breeze to keep you cool. The villa is 6 km from the historical city of Lagos. and 4 km from Luz beach. It is ideally situated in a region of rich contrasts, of coast, valley and mountains, it offers much to do and see with many unforgettable trips within easy access by modern motorways or via roads less travelled by tourists allowing you to find uninhabited beaches and areas of natural beauty..

Suggested trips:

For children/teenagers there are 3 water parks, the zoo, crazy golf, zoomarine, go-karting, watersports, fishing, Adventure Park (move from tree to tree through a series of games and trails at varied heights such as zip lines, skateboarding, rope bridges and ascenders0

• A visit along the picturesque coastline to the historical Cape of Sagres, where Prince Henry “the Navigator” established the XIV century Sagres Nautical School. Splendid panoramic views of the sea, rocks, white cliffs, white, sandy beaches and abundant flora amidst the famous Algarvian triad of almond, kerob and fig (almond trees blossom in January/February).

• Visit the spectacular Bravura Dam, in the Espinhaço de Cão mountain range, only 15 minutes away.

• Visit the historical city of Lagos, built inside castle walls, with its fortresses, narrow streets and typical quarters, contrasting sharply to the city's modern architecture, as embodied by the marine parade and its adjacent, newly-constructed marina offering a variety of activities.

• Restaurants, shopping centres, various sports (including golf), daily boat trips, are some of the many entertainments that the visitor can enjoy in the Lagos/Praia da Luz area.

For more see:


Praia da Luz

Several locations of historical interest can be found nearby, including the Roman ruins within the village, and the local church which is worth a visit. The village has retained much of its original charm.


With Lagos on your doorstep, entertainment is only minutes away. The local guide, issued monthly, will inform visitors of festivals as diverse as the yearly food and confectionery fair, the summer jazz festival, sporting events, arts exhibitions (both ongoing and seasonal), and many other activities. Gastronomic variety and delights abound, not least centred around the fish market which provides local restaurants with an enviable variety of fish and seafood.

"Well equipped villa, conveniently located for a relaxing holiday"

The villa is very well equipped and spacious. The pool area is lovely and the shaded area by the pool was great for relaxing outside but not in the sun. This proved ideal for our young child as we needed somewhere to keep her out of the sun. The pool is large and very clean. The villa is located in between Lagos and Praia de Luz so was an ideal base for exploring both. We had a great couple of weeks and although we went late in the season the weather was amazing!

"Excellent Villa"

The villa and the surounding area really exceeding our expectations. We, a family of 5 persons with three daughters, highly enjoyed our stay in the villa with the superior kitchen, bathrooms and the relaxing pool.
We highly recommend the villa to our friends.

"Absolute find - beautiful villa and perfect location"

An absolute find, a week staying in this beautiful place was not enough! The villa is perfectly located, and suits all types of holiday makers - from those looking for a completely private location to those wanting their own space but to be close to local amenities with Lagos and Luz only a 5 minute drive away. Both locations having excellent restaurants, scenery, activities, bars, clubs, supermarkets, etc…

The villa itself is perfect, goes above and beyond to ensure all requirements of the guests are met, from the small things of having enough cutlery for big groups to not have to consistently be washing up to having a beautiful pool area with plenty of space for big groups of holiday makers with plenty of loungers. The villa is very versatile in terms of sleeping arrangements and dining facilities, the kitchen is huge and has literally all types of cooking utensils! The bathrooms are modern and spacious as are the bedrooms with plenty of storage space.

The entire process from initial communication from Pat on interest in the villa, asking many questions about the area/accommodation as well as arranging our stay in the villa and payment was all very smooth and replies were quick and very friendly!

Myself and all the others in the group I travelled with would 100% recommend this lovely place for a holiday - and would surprised if you could find fault.

If anyone is looking at this villa all I can say is BOOK IT you will not be disappointed . Trisha McShane

"A superb villa furnished to a very high standard."

We stayed at this villa with our 4 children aged 19, 20, 22 and 23. We all really enjoyed the pool and the outside terrace where we ate breakfast every morning. The area is very quiet and peaceful and we did not hear much noise from the neighbours on either side. Inside the villa is furnished to a very high standard and there is nothing that we could have wanted for. Although we were a group of 6 the villa would comfortably accommodate 8. We had two hire cars and would recommend a hire car for anyone who stays at this villa.
The villa has excellent fast wifi which operated 100% of our stay - very important for our 4 children. The property was also very clean and the keys were delivered by the property manager within 15 minutes of us arriving.

Glad you enjoyed your stay hope to see you again sometime.
