About John Griffiths

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

Why John Griffiths chose Porto de Mos

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

What makes this villa unique

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

An excellent location and Villa for a large group

  • 5 of 5
Just back from three weeks at Casa Praia, and the holiday was fantastic. There were 12 of us the first week but the Villa is so well proportioned and its facilities of a high quality we never felt crowded. The pool was lovely to be able to cool off in and cleaned regularly. The air conditioning throughout the Villa and and Annex worked very well and ensured we were not too hot at nights. We found the two beach restaurants very accommodating although you have to plan ahead and book as they are very busy. The food in both (and in fact throughout Lagos) is wonderful and amazing value. Logos itself is a lovely with historical sites and great places to eat and drink - the youngsters in our party particularly liked the Sky Bar! Kayaking was great fun and the Dolphin tour fantastic - we saw about 200!

Finally just to say like a previous reviewer the owner John was very responsive to any information we asked for or when anything needed (for example sink in the kitchen got blocked and was fixed within two hours).

I would highly recommend the Villa - minor point it's a shame the steps down to the beach stop before they actually get to the car park - the scrabble down the last few feet could be difficult for someone unsteady on their feet.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation in this Villa. John Griffiths was most attentive trying to meet our every need. The Villa is as beautiful as it shows on the website and was a perfect place to relax, and enjoy the areas surrounding the area of Lagos. The pool was a welcome retreat with family and friends. The view of the ocean was spectacular and only a five minute walk to the beach and two fine restaurants. We highly recommend this Villa to rent. Thank you John for everything.

Large Villa on great Location but some watch outs

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at Casa Praia over the Christmas week. The villa location is great, near the beach and with many options for great day trips.
On the beach are two restaurants that were open this week and that provided nice meals at good value. Lagos is a fun and lazy "Mediterranean" town with various other great restaurants and a large marina. It was quiet during the holiday week but looks like it can be a bustling town at any other time.
The area around the villa's is breathtaking with many great vista's and walking options.
The villa is large with 5 separate bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. The villa is heated, which at the end of December was nice to get the chill out of the house.

However there are a few watch outs.
We had requested the pool to be heated which is barely worth the additional money. The difference in temperature is minimal so we hardly used the pool at all.
The WIFI internet is virtual unusable: When it did work we could pick up the signal standing outside the front door or in a small corner on the deck.
Lastly we did have a nasty smell in the kitchen, which according to the owner was caused by food residue in the drain. Unfortunately after cleaning the drain the smell was not noticeably different.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we take each & every comment very seriously

Casa Praia has the pool I often use & heat and our normal winter water temperature is only 13ºC (very cold) and even with the stormy winter of 2013 your pool was registering 27ºC so I can guarantee without the heating it would have been unusable. Clients immediately before & after your stay were using the pool daily, unfortunately even in the summer we cannot provide bath temperatures

We have now changed the Wi-Fi system from a general hot spot to each villa having its own Wi-Fi to overcome this problem, this is now available by request

Please note that Portuguese properties are not allowed waste dispensers and food can get trapped if washed down the sink. We did not have this problem with either of our clients before or after yourself & we resolved this 30 mins after you left. We also provided you with a brand new fridge during your stay as you also thought this was not acceptable

We apologize for any inconvenience caused

Villa Beautiful but a couple of Points

  • 5 of 5
Firstly Villa is very smart and roomy. No trick photos. Only bad points are wifi is lousy and Annexe Bedroom has no Air Con. We had 10 people so that did lead to a problem for us. Hopefully this will be corrected soon.
The two beach restaurants are very good and the beach is one of the best Ive been to. In time I hope they build a bar because although you could go in the restaurants during the day for just a drink you did feel guilty as they were busy and clearly they wanted diners. I would also give a word of warning to those with less mobile people in their party. The short walk down to the beach contains a short, very steep dirt track section. We had to help the old'uns up and down of an evening but it stopped them going when they wanted and a pram or a wheelchair would be out of the question. Why they cant build a few steps is plain crazy. I Would go back again though and you will not be disappointed by the villa or beach.

Incredible Villa, Incredible setting!

  • 5 of 5
Photos do not do this villa justice, the place is huge! Furnished to the highest standards, immaculately clean, and with an outdoor terrace looking over the pool and out to the sea. It's a short stroll down to the beach where there are 2 decent restaurants, and even better ones a little further afield in Lagos.

Perfect for families or for groups, as the villa is spacious enough to allow privacy as well as provide the perfect spaces for dinners or relaxing by the pool.

Really don't have a bad word to say about our experience. Highly recommended.
