“Superb apartment” The apartment is so spacious with fantastic views over the old town and sea. We spent quite a lot of time sitting on the balcony with a glass or 3 of wine relaxing. The only minor negative comment would be the uphill trek from town, but we are in our late 60's and managed it every evening. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.
“Great apartment and will visit again” Great apartment with lovely views of the old town and the sea. A 5 minute stroll and you are in the heart of the town no need for taxis. The booking was simple with great communication from Dale who also arranged the transfers to and from the airport (nice friendly driver Miguel).Highly recommended and I will use again. Thanks to Dale

“A beautiful well equipped apartment with fantastic views.” We loved the apartment and the location, we would recommend having a car. This area of Portugal is completely unspoilt. The golf courses are excellent and were not overcrowded. All aspects of the booking were handled promptly and efficiently.
“A superb quality portuguese villa in a beautiful location” The villa looked great on the website.When we arrived and saw it in the flesh though it was a WOW moment.I went with wife and in law and children aged from 3 to 17. This villa fitted the bill perfectly. A large property with 4 beds and large kitchen/dining/lounge areas. A lovely patio overlooking a well cared for swimming pool of good size.A beautiful upstairs balcony runs alongside the master bedroom and the living room.The covered balcony being a lovely location to escape the midday sun yet still allow a cool breeze to pass over. Discreet fence around the pool to re-assure fears where younger children are concerned.Large gardens and driveaway that offer a good degree of privacy.Located close enough to Praia De Luz if you fancy a walk down to town and easier enough to travel to the lovely town of Lagos. The villa is fitted with a high standard of interior fixtures and fittings. Travel from Faro airport was around 50 minutes and basically it was on a straight highway so easy to navigate for those not relishing driving on holiday. It was that good we are already planning to return next year.
“Beautiful” When we arrived at the area where villa mimi was in we were a bit disappointed as it seemed away from everything and the area a bit run down but as soon as we entered the villa we were gobsmacked. Claudio has a gorgeous place, too good for our kids. Everyone loved it especially the pool and underground games room. There is a stair gaurd at top of the stairs great if u have wondering kids (pity wasn't one at bottom minor) The pool was so warm as we used the cover that we were told to use only thing we had be extra cautious as there is no gaurd around the pool and it was quite deep but that didn't stop us. There is lovely restaurants/pubs "the Dubliner and Erin's isle" about 5 mins walk from villa . Lovely Irish bars. There is an inter marche up beside Erin's isle and the strip is only a 10 min walk from villa. Taxi into old town is 6€ per car. Couldn't fault the place. Thanks Claudio
“Fantastic villa for a relaxation holiday” I had an excellent relaxation holiday, staying at Casa Dora with friends in late September and would definitely return. I went with a small group of friends but the villa seems spacious enough for a larger group with plenty of communal areas for people to have their own space: the living room, the outdoor pool and Jacuzzi and two areas for dining outside.
The pool was a massive plus; decent-sized and not too deep that a non-swimmer like me could feel confident splashing about. There were enough sunbeds, pool games and other options for entertainment that we hardly felt like leaving the villa throughout our stay!
The kitchen facilities were excellent with pretty much everything we needed for home-cooking and the BBQ outside made for some delicious meals. When we did have to leave to stock up on groceries, the location of the villa was convenient within 15 minutes’ walk of the beach and restaurants in Praia da Luz and within 15 minutes’ drive of Lagos and Burgau.
The house has excellent amenities and was clean and well-stocked with the essentials. Overall, I would definitely want to return!
“Idyllic Villa in fabulous, unspoilt location - Great for Kids” We expected a beautiful Villa from the description and photographs on Owners Direct and were not disapointed. The layout and facilities that the this villa had to offer were second to none. The building is so well designed and full of charicter. It makes the most of the sun shine throughout the whole day from the morning on the kitchen terrace where the kids enjoyed their breakfast every day to the pool and roof terraces where you could kick back and relax. The highlight for me (apart from the very large pool) was the very well laid out and equiped oustide bbq and pizza oven area where we cooked and ate our evening meals. You don't need to leave but if you do, Tavira was our favorite place and a very unspoilt town with a lovely square with some great restaurants. Andre, the Villa manager was on hand at all times should we have needed anything and the pool was maintained during our stay.
“Lovely and relaxing villa” This villa was very clean and well equipped and in a lovely quiet location - just 20 mins walk to the Old Town of Albufeira.
Like many of the other reviews the swimming pool was exceptionally clean and again, we were the only ones that appeared to be using it - so very private..
The weather was superb, sunny and extremely hot throughout our stay. Due to high temperatures both during the day and at night. The ceiling fan in the main bedroom did help to some degree, but maybe installing aircon would be an added benefit/feature for this property.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay , the villa, location and weather were all superb. Melissa helped with all our queries and it was a pleasure booking with her.
“Excellent apartment very well equiped.” Lovely location with restaurants and bars very close by,the old town is very near by too, the beach is lovely with the old town just across the the walk bridge. Such a picturesque resort with a great view of the Marina.would recommend this Lagos to all my friends.
“Relax to the Max!!” We visited this wonderful apartment in June 2013. Communication with the owners was excellent, (they couldn't have made it easier) and the management company very professional. The pictures don't do the apartment justice and it has everything you could want, the location very tranquil (especially as only a couple of the other apartments were being used when we were there), we didn't want to leave!!
This is our third visit to Portugal previously renting apartments in Alvor and Porto Do Mos, but this apartment is our favourite by far!
We had already arranged to have a hire car, but the owners are more than happy to arrange transfers to and from the airport.
The location is great - opposite (and I really mean opposite) the lovely beach of Meia Praia, approx. 30mins walk (either on the side of the road or on the beach) to Lagos Marina, or you can get a local bus or train from just across the road from the apartment (which both run regularly). Lagos itself is a lovely old town with lots of good restaurants. There is also a golf course (Val Da Lama I think) just up the road - several people had left messages in the guest book saying that a twilight round, buggy and hire of clubs was around €55.
We found this location also great to visit other beaches towards the most western tip of the Algarve (Sagres) - only 20/30 mins away by car from a number of many lovely bays/beaches (some of which are great for surfing) e.g. Beliche, Zavial, Tonnel & Mareta plus many others in-between.
All in all a wonderful holiday in a wonderful apartment and we look forward to visiting again one day soon!
Cobbled streets, golden sands, refreshing seas, fascinating history, idyllic landscapes and culture in buckets. A trip to Portugal is time well spent, whether you’re on a gastronomic tour of Lisbon, or escaping it all in the Algarve.
A Lifetime Of Landscapes
No two holidays to Portugal ever have to be the same. You can experience city life in the bustling capital of Lisbon, uncover the thriving cultural scene in Portugal’s second city, Porto, or opt for something different entirely: a countryside break in central Portugal, or a beach holiday on the Algarve. Whatever your preference, be it a stylish apartment or a spacious villa, Holiday Lettings has got you covered.
Time To Dine
When it comes to food, the Portuguese forte is cooking simple meals with flair. Thanks to Portugal’s close proximity to the coast, the seafood you’ll experience is beautifully fresh and the wine, courtesy of the Douro Valley, flows freely. But the culinary delights begin with breakfast, where freshly baked bread and cheese reign supreme. Just save some room for pastel de nata (a custard tart), Portugal’s staple delicacy.
A Tale Of Two Cities
Interested in Portugal’s renowned art, music and cultural scene? The cities of Lisbon and Porto are sure to deliver. The former is the country’s bustling capital and has perfect panoramas, sweeping hillsides and ancient ruins on tap. Porto, on the other hand, is fast making a name for itself as a charismatic culinary destination, where contemporary architecture houses film festivals and tasting sessions.

Monte-Bougainvillea GIRASOL - holiday apartment, car included!
Fabulous, relaxing location away from the busy tourist areas.
This is just the type of location we were looking for! The newly refurbished accommodation had everything we needed. Quiet, and relaxing. The owners Jean-Charles and Sylvie were perfect hosts providing a well equipped house, maps and advice. Even included a rescue service when we got lost finding the accommodation.
And their wonderfully well behaved dog Dixie was a source of amusement for all.
Many thanks for a wonderful stay. …
Fantastic stay at Villa Nuala. This was our second time there and we will definitely return. The villa is in a lovely quiet residential area within easy walking distance to the marina where there are plenty of lovely places to eat and to enjoy a stroll, and to the beach. The villa has everything you need for a perfect holiday and is very clean. The rooms are very spacious and the pool and garden is lovely. The outside seating area is a lovely place to sit and relax in the evening. Nuala is lovely to deal with - she gives you all the information you need to ensure you have a great worry free holiday. I have no hesitation in recommending Villa Nuala. …
