N.B. There is a little black cat (Menina) at the villa. She doesn’t live indoors but outside in an outbuilding and she is fed by the cleaners. She is very affectionate and always wants to make friends with everyone – in fact most of our guests have fallen in love with her...
The Algarve / West Algarve region
The Western Algarve is not only the most western part of Europe - it is practically the southernmost part as well. This means the climate is about as good as you will get anywhere in mainland Europe.
Average daytime temperatures range from 22 degrees Celsius in May to 30 degrees in August, with temperatures still at 26 degrees in September and typically 22 degrees in October.
Average hours of sunlight: 12 hrs a day throughout the summer. Rainfall in July and August is practically unknown, with only a day or two in May & September
The Lagos / Meia Praia area
Lagos has so much to offer - beautiful beaches, plenty of fine restaurants, an amazing coastline and a choice of golf courses! It’s is a fascinating town with a maze of winding, cobbled streets which are full of pavement restaurants, cafe bars, antique shops and art galleries. Many of the restaurants have outdoor tables and are happy to welcome younger children, catering for all tastes and budgets. And after you’ve eaten, there’s no shortage of bars and discos where you drink and dance the night away.
There are 3 excellent golf courses, watersports, sailing and windsurfing, with plenty of boat trips on offer enabling you to view the extraordinary coastline or even to go on dolphin safari! When you combine all the above with street entertainment, a busy calendar of festivals, markets and fairs throughout the year, you will see why Lagos is a location you simply cannot fail to enjoy!
Is Lagos exceptional? We think so—in fact we love it and hope you will too!
