The Algarve region

The Western Algarve is such a wonderful place to visit, here you will experience for yourself the friendly Portuguese culture, sumptuous fresh food, endless sunshine, in fact more sunshine per annum than any other region in Europe. Relaxation is a certainty as you escape to one of the many sandy beaches, too many to count.

Lagos is the capital of the Western Algarve, a unique little jewel in the Algarve crown. It has chosen to develop its tourism with taste and class. It offers a balance of the charm and history of the Portuguese culture with a blend of creature comforts and facilities to please the desires of the most discerning tourist.

The warmth of Lagos and her people make it difficult to resist falling in love with this seaside town. I can only say that Lagos has a special something that you feel when you spend time here. Lagos is an ideal destination for all the family with something for will not be disappointed.


Whatever your preference from a holiday destination, Lagos has it all, from sitting within the town, beach, or classy marina you can wile away the hours and watch life pass you by. If this is your first visit to Lagos, you simply must take a "grotto tour".

Step into a small fishing boat, let your local fisherman be your guide, and witness from the water, the distinctive and magnificent cliffs that surround the Lagos area. It is truly a sight unseen! Your guide will navigate around and under the intriguing rock formations, take you into caves and point out the hidden treasures that are to be found within them.

One of the best ways to spend a warm day in Lagos is on one of the many beaches ("praias" in Portuguese) along the town coastline. There are several beaches within walking distance from our apartments, so pack a picnic lunch, grab your map and make it a day of beach-hopping. It's a great way to slow down and to revitalize your spirit.

Tip: Take loads of sunscreen, a big beach blanket and a beach umbrella or two, as the sun is oh so strong!

"Fantastic villa with helpful owner and property manager."

We booked Casa Maurice for our silver wedding anniversary in which we invited our family to stay with us. The youngest child was 10 years old and the oldest adults were pensioners.Despite the varying ages everybody had a fantastic time. Casa Maurice is an amazing property with a large amount of space so that everybody could do just as they please .Denis is the property manager in Portugal and he is a most helpful person who was always on hand to answer any queries .
Lagos is a very good place for a family holiday . It has loads of culture and a strong Portugese identity , but a few touristy things should you require them .If you want loads of nightlife and clubs it won't be for you. If you want to spend quality time with the family relaxing and eating excellent meals at a reasonable price then Lagos is the place.
We last visited Lagos 5 years ago , and we were very surprised to find that eating out was slightly cheaper than the last time we visited .It really is a lovely town with a good vibe about it.

"Fabulous villa in an excellent location"

We have recently returned from a week in Casa Maurice. We were a party of twelve, aged from 1 to 60. My husband and I thought it would be a nice idea to celebrate our 60th birthdays with our family and we were not disappointed. I could not recommend the villa highly enough. Chris, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and the whole holiday ran very smoothly from start to finish. Chris arranged our airport transfers and a driver was waiting for us when we arrived at Faro. We did not hire a car as the villa is very well situated, a ten to fifteen minute walk to the beach and roughly the same to the marina and town. My sister and her husband hired a car as it was their first visit to Portugal and they wanted to explore. I have to admit the car was very handy for doing the shopping as we consumed an enormous amount of food (and drink!) However, there is a little supermarket quite close on the way into town where you can buy all the basics. Casa Maurice offers excellent accommodation and with four bathrooms, there was never a panic when we were all getting ready to go out to dinner. The pool and terrace areas are superb. On several occasions, we were all in the pool together with rings, lilos, balls and baby and we had enormous fun. The brick barbecue is excellent and we made good use of it as there is an excellent fish market where we bought fish we had never tried before, such as red mullet and snapper. My only complaint would be that there is not much shade at the hottest part of the day; morning and late afternoon are fine but I noticed plants growing up the trellis by the barbecue area so hopefully, in a couple of years, it will afford more shade. The young ones in our group particularly appreciated the large games room and they had many hours of fun there, often in the early hours of the morning when the old fogies had retired to bed. Lagos is a lovely town with a large variety of excellent restaurants. We went by Chris's recommendations in the brochure and we were not disappointed. In conclusion, I would have to say Casa Maurice and Lagos offer all the ingredients to ensure an excellent holiday for all ages.
