About the home
Azeitona is surrounded by olive, fig and almond trees and is just 2kms away from the traditional village of Barao de Sao Joao. It is a short distance from all the facilities of the historic walled town of Lagos, stunning beaches and the dramatic west coast.
The modern and comfortable, single storey villa has three double bedrooms which all have shaded terraces and ensuite facilities. Each of the 3 bedrooms can be twin bedded if preferred.
The lounge opens onto a huge shaded terrace for relaxation and al fresco dining, all overlooking the 10 x 5 metre solar heated swimming pool. The Mediterranean style garden has secluded seating areas along with the large communal BBQ and shaded dining area.
Azeitona is adjacent to Amendoa (2 bedroom villa) and Limão (1 bedroom villa) so it is ideal for parties who wish to holiday together but still retain their own privacy. Limão can only be booked if both Azeitona and Amendoa are booked by the same party.
A great location for a relaxing holiday and for exploring this beautiful area of the Algarve.

The Algarve / West Algarve region
The quieter western end of the Algarve boasts beautiful countryside and stunning beaches. A mixture of historic towns, timeless villages surrounded by orange groves and quaint fishing villages.
A visit to the west coast is a must to experience the dramatic cliffs and the lovely beaches frequented by surfers and beach lovers alike.
Sagres and its Fort are steeped in navigational history and the mountains of Monchique are famous for their views, walking and waters. Nearby the Autodromo at Portimao offers go-karting as well as an international motorsports circuit hosting major events during the year.
With golf courses on the doorstep, walking, cycling, horse-riding, surfing, watersports, water parks, fishing and boat trips all close by there is something for everyone.
The Lagos / Barao de Sao Joao area
The small picturesque village of Barao de Sao Joao is a 2km walk down the track to a handful of bars, restaurants, post office and a couple of shops to supply daily needs.
Excellent restaurants are also in the nearby village of Espiche. Praia du Luz ( 5mins by car) has 2 supermarkets, shops and a great variety of restaurants, many overlooking the beautiful bay and fantastic beach.
Lagos (10mins) has large supermarkets, bustling markets for fresh fish and vegetables, cafes and restaurants on cobbled streets, stunning cliff tops and beaches. The modern marina offers boat trips including sea fishing, dolphin watching, sailing charters and scenic viewing of the caves and grottos.
Quinta da Varzea Grande overlooks the immaculate fairways of the newly opened Espiche Golf course . There are also many other golf courses nearby with Boa Vista and Parque da Floresta only a few minutes drive away.

A winter sun break
29 Dec 2012
Arriving in September for a late break meant it wasnt too hot but was so relaxing. Either going out (by car) or relaxing by the pool enabled us to wind down. Many places to visit and we would recommend the cave boat trip from Lagos.
Easy to get to from the airport.
The well equipped and tasteful apartment was very comfortable. The kitchen had all you need for meals but we eat out frequently.
The pool ( with very helpful attendant!) was used several times a day

We had the 3 room villa for my wife and I, my parents and our 1 year old son.
The facilities are excellent with very tasteful decor and there was a nice supply of basics on our arrival (bread, eggs, wine, butter, etc.), which was a thoughtful touch. The location is tranquil with a beautiful country view - yet getting to the main road is very easy. There's a common area around the pool and down at the excellent BBQ patio area - we grilled something up 3 or 4 nights. Each room seems to also have a private patio, which is a great design. I've been to the Algarve once here and once staying in Lagos. Staying outside the town is ideal (you have a to have a car, obviously). Quick access to the surfing beaches, wonderful little Luz, Lagos and the rest.
WiFi is a touch spotty, but it probably did us good to not be glued to email and there are plenty of wi-fi pubs and cafes in the nearby towns.
We plan to return and would definitely stay here again.
