Having lived in Portugal most of my adult life & loving this part of the Algarve, especially Lagos, Porto de Mós was the obvious choice as it still retains its typical Portuguese charm and as this is where I live it seemed the right choice to provide high quality holidays right here

John Griffiths purchased this villa in 2007

The 'location' - the Surveyor told me that there are no more than 100 properties along the whole Algarve Coastline in such a location

The views, changing hourly with all of the different boats, fishermen (day & night), yachts, dolphins & more frequently whales

BEAUTIFUL VILLA!

  • 5 of 5
We rented out "Casa Mar" for a family reunion during the 1st week in June. John's email correspondence during & after the booking period and leading up to the arrival date was handled very professionally, and he answered all our questions in a timely fashion.

We were all very impressed with the property - there is no trick photography at play. What you see in the photos above is exactly what you get. If you're looking for a large villa with plenty of indoor & outdoor space, with plenty of privacy and all the trimmings you need to make your stay comfortable then I'd look no further. Beach access is only a 5 min walk away and lagos town is a short 5 min drive.

This place exceeded our expectations & we'll definitely be coming back for another visit.

Paul.

WONDERFUL VILLA CASA MAR

  • 5 of 5
Beautyful villa, with a great view. Very comfortable, luxury equipment, very big!
Within walking distance to the beach, with two wonderful restaurants and a soccer-/tennisfield for the children.
Fortunately the swimming pool was heated, so in the water it was also pleasant.
If still a downside shoud be called, as far as we are concerned, it was a little to small double bed.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR A PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Hello! That is an absolute nice location, very well equipped with nice technical features, quiet (mainly families there in the houses around) and extremly clean, perfect bay-view from the veranda and in 3min. walking distance to a beautiful and not at all crowded beach. With the car 5min to Lagos with many restaurants, bars, etc. Also 5 min by car to a beautiful Golf-Club (Boavista) which I frequently used. Renting Kajaks recommended to discover the cliffs and rocks at the coats which takes 2-3h and is a really nice adventure. If the wind blows (it did not unfortunately when we were there) you can also rent Catamarans and Laser to have have some sailing fun in Lagos. Only thing to maybe improve in the house by the way is the WIFI-quality/speed but at least there is one that is a minor thing really, everything else is perfect. Thanks, John, for the good week we had! Christoph

CASA MAR

  • 5 of 5
This villa was truelly amazing. The rooms were large and furnished beautifully. There were 5 adults and I child in our group and there was plenty of space for us all. The villa was spotless and the owner was always willing to help with any issues/requests. Overlooking the beach and just a few minutes walk away is the gorgeous Porto de Mos beach with two restaurants. We visited them both and the food and service was very good. The sea bass was outstanding! Lagos is about 20+ minutes walk away and is a lovely town with many restaurants and facilities. We particularly enjoyed the cave tour of the coast. We all had a wonderful holiday and would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to visit this part of the Algarve.

VILLA CASA MAR

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year that we have stayed in the Villas; and yet again the villa lived up to expectations! The quality of the villa is superb, and with the sea view and close proximity of the beach the location cannot be bettered. We stayed there with our family (six adults and two small children) and there was plenty of room in both the villa and outdoor space.

We used one of the restaurants on the beach for both a quick snack or a drink in the day, and for dinner in the evening and were pleased with the standard and value offered.

As ever John was always on hand, promt and responsive to any queries.

Great holiday was had by everyone, so good we have booked again for next year!!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
Casa Mar was everything we imagined and more. The house was exceptionally clean and convenient to the beach and to Lagos and surrounding villages. The owner was very responsive to all my requests and questions. There is an abundance of good restaurants in Lagos and Luz. Try the cliff walk from Porto do Mos to Luz. It is difficult at times but has beautiful views. We especially enjoyed the boat rides into the caves. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
