Home From Home pool, garden & BBQ highlights
We had a very relaxing time at the villa with our two teenage sons. Especially loved the pool and all it’s various areas where you can practically track the sun through the day, beautiful well maintained garden and BBQ/sheltered patio area. The owners have taken great care in leaving listings of recommended restaurants and activities of which Lagos has many. (We’d add the crazy golf at the back of the town walls for a bit of family fun-even teenagers).
Some minor things we feel could be adjusted- Maybe too many notices about the place about security and recent thefts in the area - slightly spooked our sons who saw the notes.
We were fortunate to have great sunny days - it was hot especially to sleep at night and full air con would have been nice, as well as mosquito nets to keep some very persistent ones out.
Nearby Lagos is a very lovely town and area - we have retuned many times over the years. You need a car to get to Lagos and access the ‘wilder western beaches’.
Everything we needed was available in the villa. We would love to come back,and thoroughly enjoyed our break.
A most enjoyable stay
The villa was spotlessly clean and had very well managed grounds. The pool was well maintained and cleaned twice during our fortnights stay.
The villa is excellently located in a rural setting with splendid views of the ocean and countryside yet close to supermarkets and all the amenities of Lagos.
Doreen provided very thorough and extensive information about restaurants, points of interest, places to visit and local information which was extremely useful to us.
The villa was well equipped and we enjoyed picking oranges for our freshly squeezed juice in the morning a d lemons for our evening g+t .
We would definitely like to return although as a party of 6 rather than 8 as we would not use the annex as an additional bedroom again. The fold up beds were low and uncomfortable and made the sitting room cramped for space.. Apart from that it was excellent.
Lovely Villa in a great location. Communications with owner and agent very easy. An ideal family holiday with a great heated pool.
Thank you so much for your review. It does help us very much. So pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we hope tom see you again in the future.
Lovely villa with great views and utter silence, very relaxing. The heated pool was a bonus.
We were delighted to arrive after a long journey and were not disappointed. The villa was very clean and welcoming, the maid had put the heaters on so it was nice and warm inside as well as out. We explored the house and found everything needed for a great holiday. The pool looked fantastic and we quickly got ready for a swim which was lovely. We found a very good taxi firm which came to collect us every evening, so no need to worry about drinking and there was an ample supply of taxis to bring us back the fare being a very reasonable 5/6 euros. We followed the recommendations re restaurants in the owners local notes and found these very reliable without exception.
We spent most of our time lounging around the pool at the villa but did venture out to beaches now and again and explored further afield towards the west coast. We were particularly fond of Ingrina and Salema on the way and the beaches up the west coast are all very stunning and almost undiscovered. The beach bars are all very good, but it's a shame they have all been made to conform to certain rules which has robbed them of their individual style. Nearer to home, we particularly like the restaurants at Porto de Mos, as you are right on the beach and can enjoy spectacular sunsets. It is worthwhile going inland through Portelas and up to Bensafrim then twirl around and go back through Barao St Juao and St Miguel, an unspoilt area of the Algarve unchanged by time. In short a great holiday with lots of variety .
It is a fantastic house!
The house is in great shape with a fantastic garden and pool. Very social areas with lots of both indoor and outdoor space. The view is amazing.
lovely spot in the hills above Lagos
We very much enjoyed our stay in the Casa do Miradouro in Falfeira, a small rural neighborhood on the outskirts of Lagos. The house is quite large, with great views out over the valley and down to the harbor & beaches east of Lagos. It is wonderfully quiet, and peaceful, and Lagos is almost deserted in late December. Weather here was great for the season-- low 60's (F) and mostly sunny for the entire 2 weeks we were there. The pool is heated (though for extra cost!), and works even in this off-season. The house itself is a bit odd in design, but well appointed. It has two very nicely refitted new full bathrooms with heated floors and towel bars, but the kitchen is a bit spartan, and the fireplace in the main living room does not work. The doors and windows are a bit old and need to be treated carefully, but they are secure and functional. If it is privacy and seclusion you are seeking, with a view and convenient access to everything in Lagos, this is your spot! if you seek something brand new and uber-luxurious, keep looking ;-)
Coast / Beach:
Den nærmeste strand er 1. 5 km væk. Den berømte Meia Praia stranden kan nås med færge båd fra promenaden eller fra en af de mange parkeringspladser spredt langs stranden. På den anden side af byen er den mest fotograferede strand på Algarve - Praia Dona Anna med sine utrolige klippeformationer. Der er mange strande langs kysten af enhver form og størrelse. De vidunderlige vestkyst strande er inden for rækkevidde, den hemmelige bugt Ingrina, det store Castelejo og Amado for surfere
Faro lufthavn er 78 km (ca. 45 min kørsel) via motorvej A22 til Lagos.
Billeje anbefales kraftigt for nemheds skyld, men ikke absolut nødvendigt.
Lagos by: 1. 5 km. Portelas landsby: 0. 5 km. Praia da Luz: 7 km. Burgau: 12 km. Sagres: 28 km.
Miradouro er godt indrettet og udstyret med telefon, Wi FI, digital engelsk TV, herunder BBC, ITV osv CD / kassette afspiller, DVD-afspiller, værdiboks, hårtørrer og et lille bibliotek med paperback bøger. Der er loft fans for sommermånederne. Den har en udpræget portugisisk smag, som vi har indrettet og dekoreret med værker af lokale håndværkere hvor det er muligt, mens det stadig giver alle "moderne faciliteter", personlig værdiboks, opvaskemaskine, mikroovn og en daglig maid at behandle alle huslige pligter, så mor kan have en ferie også!
Lagos (udtales Lah-Gosh!) er helt anderledes end de fleste andre Algarve resorts. Dette er ingen formål bygget resort eller over-udviklede fiskerleje, men en gammel portugisisk by, dens arv velbevaret af kommunalbestyrelsen. Turisme spiller nu en vigtig rolle i sin velstand, men på ingen måde overvælder det. De gamle mænd stadig samles for at sætte verden til rettigheder, og du behøver kun slentre en kort vej fra centrum for at finde vandre brostensbelagte gader eller den gamle bymur omkring byen. Byens centrum ligger blot 1. 5 km væk.
Besøg den nye lystbådehavn at beundre lystbåde, slentre langs palme promenade med udsigt over fiskerihavnen og den gamle Fort stikker ud i havet, den gamle slave marked (nu et kunstgalleri) og kirken Santo Antonio med sin regionale museum. Det er den foretrukne ferieby for den portugisiske selv, der sikrer god værdi for pengene og Portugal selv er en af de billigste lande i Europa. Kort sagt, det er en rummelig portugisisk by med noget for alle. Der er mange restauranter, der passer til alle lommer og smag, forskellige supermarkeder og alle sorter af butikker.
I og omkring Lagos er faciliteter til sejlsport, windsurfing, surf boarding, vandski, dykning, dybhavsfiskeri, bådture, tennis, squash, ridning, delfiner og for virkelig eventyrlystne, ultralette flyvende! En omfattende guide til lokale faciliteter sendes til alle booking villaen.
