This villa is extremely spacious huge in fact ! Everthing was exactly as advertised if not better in reality, a truly gorgeous, stunning place. The owner John is very friendly and helpful and always available to answer any questions. In the master bedroom you can take a shower with perfect sea views!
The area is very quiet and peaceful with two nice restaurants on the beach just a few minutes walk away the 'campi Mar' restaurant did better food than Antonios but both are good and excellent value for money but be sure to reserve a table especially if you want to sit outside they can be very busy.
The centre of Lagos is only few minutes away in taxi costing about 4-5 euros and i recommend you book a table at the restaurant called 'No Patio' its gorgeous!Does not look much from outside but when you go through the seating is all outside in a gorgeous relaxed setting,the best food we had in Portugal by far and the service was excellent!
There are no shops at all near the villa which is why they say car hire is essential, but we didn't hire one and managed ok as the large supermarket ' intermache' was about a 15 min brisk walk away if your a fairly fit fast walker.
Would not really like to bring children as the pool area is not really suitable as it is an infinity pool with quite a drop at the end into a deep slate water catchment area.
We went for a mountain biking holiday and did guided rides with 'the mountain bike adventure' who are excellent and highly recommended as they cater for all different levels of ability.
Over all one of the best holiday destinations i have been to a real quality place.
Tourists without a Car,
Families with Teenagers,
Owner's Response: Thanks, we have had many families with small children but like all pools supervision is a must, plus not all of our pools are "infinity pools" as we also have 2 beach front villas with normal pools
