The Algarve region
There are many reasons to visit the Algarve: a warm, sunny climate that usually enjoys a lovely breeze, some of the best beaches in Europe, numerous quality golf courses, and a relaxed atmosphere. The Western side of the Algarve is less developed than areas nearer to the airport: the motorway to this area only opened a few year's ago. If you take a trip to the spectacular coastline at Cape St Vincent you will be at the most south-westerly point of mainland Europe and this area is steeped in naval history.
Other places to visit include the picturesque mountain spa town of Monchique; the quaint fishing village of Burgau; the Barragem de Bravura near Odiaxere, where you can swim in the dam's eucalyptus-scented water and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Megalithic monuments at Evora.
There are numerous beautiful beaches nearby: Porto de Mos, Praia D'Ana, Praia Da Luz and Meia Praia are all within a few minutes drive away from Boavista. Further West, there are many secluded beaches which are off the beaten track such as Zavier and Tonel. Windsurfing is popular at Martinhal beach and there are a number of surfing beaches in the far south-west and further up north along the coast. All of these beaches are between 5 minutes and 45 minutes from the villa- a beach explorer's paradise!
Lagos is an easy place to be- there are ample street cafes and restaurants along the cobbled whitewashed streets, a local market every Saturday morning, interesting small shops, a fresh fish market and a lively night life. From the harbour you can go on a boat trip to spot dolphins, visit caves, fish or even charter your own yacht.
For children who want a change from Boavista's swimming pools and from playing on the beaches, there a couple of good attractions about 40 minutes drive away: there is a big Slide Splash park and at Zoo Marine there is a wonderful dolphin show, aquarium, 4-d cinema, swimming pool and a few rides too.
For golfers, Boavista championship golf course is on the doorstep. This course opened on the 1st January 2002 and was designed by Howard Swan MSc, past president of The European Institute of Golf Course Architects. His objective was to design a course that preserves and integrates with the area's natural terrain. Umbrella pines, almond, fig, palm and olive trees line the rolling fairways making Boavista a beautiful golf course. The golf is challenging and enjoyable and the course has quickly earned the reputation of being amongst the best in in the area. Guests at the villa receive a 20% discount off the green fees and a 10% reduction at the clubhouse.
There must be in the region of 30 other great courses within an hour's drive of Boavista, for example, Palmares, Alto Golf, Morgado, Penina, Villa Sol, Salgados, Pinta, Gramacho, Parque da Floresta, Vilamoura, Pinhal, Laguna and Millenium.
The clubhouse is open all day and serves drinks, breakfast, lunch and in the evening there is an dinner menu. There is also a restaurant called 'Montes' at Boavista, which is a coffee house serving lunch during the day and in the evening there is an excellent dinner menu.
Visitors can use the heated indoor pool, gym, sauna complex for free. Spa treatments, such as facials and massages can be be booked there too.

"A great holiday in the Algarve"
We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in Portugal where we stayed in No.50 Lakeview.The villa is very well located, with a balcony to the front which looks on to the pool where we enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine in the evening. The back balcony has lovely views of the golf course where you can relax and watch the golfers tee off from the 15th.
While my daughter and I spent a lot of time at the pool, my husband and two sons played golf, tennis and used the gym - and loved it! Nearby are plenty of beaches, restaurants and supermarkets and the towns of Lagos and Luz.
The owners have gone to great lengths to cater for all age groups - with puzzles and games to keep even very young children entertained for hours.
The kitchen wants for nothing and everything is well maintained. The cleaning service and change of towels and bed linen is excellent.
Overall we had a great experience in No.50 Lakeview and would have no hesitation recommending this villa to anybody. We all came home tanned and refreshed.

"Great for a relaxing family holiday"
We travelled with 9yr and 15yr old boys who had a wonderful time, the villa was very well equipped, shared pool is large and well located, garden area behind villa has great views and ideal for BBQ's, found some great beaches from 5 - 20 mins away. Boys also used the gym every morning. Ideal for a stress free easy holiday that is not going to brake the bank and keep the children amused, and although it is located by a golf course you don't need to play golf in order to have a good time. Local fish is also excellent.

"A lovely holiday with excellent accomodation"
We had a wonderful holiday. The house is superb, everything we needed both inside and outside was in place. We particularly loved the views from the rear of the property and the balconey at the front overlooking the pools,ideal to sit out with an evening glass of wine.
The restaurants on site are excellent as are the outdoor facilities for adults and children, plus of course a terrific golf course.
The attractive town of Lagos was nearby as is the sea and beaches There are also useful nearby supermarkets.
