We are a married couple with 6 children aged 8 to 25 yrs. We live in Fleet, Hampshire where we built our own house in 2004, decided that we would like to do the same in Lagos. We began our search for a plot and in bought this one in 2007; the build was completed in June 2012. We are looking forward to spending many happy holidays with our family at the villa and are planning to relocate to Lagos on retirement.
Sandra purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Sandra chose Porto de Mós
We loved the location of the plot at Porto de Mos - a very pretty area and extremely peaceful but convenient for the beach and shops.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa was designed by a well know local architect and benefits from offering a choice of several outside areas to relax and enjoy the attractive views over Porto de Mos and the countryside to the rear of the property. The pool is of a generous size and has the advantage of being salt water which is kinder to skin and eyes. Being able to walk down to two beach restaurants is a big plus as is being a few minutes drive from the shops and supermarkets

Fantastic service fantastic villa
Very smart property in a lovely, quiet location, very close to beach and local ammenit
The Villa is a perfect place for a large group or family to stay. We visited with our 4 grown up kids and my daughters partner, 7 of us in total. We didn't feel like we were tripping over each other. The pool can be heated which we found to be worth the extra spend as the weather wasn't as warm as we would have liked. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and the kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of. Porto Do Mos is still being developed and many villas are being erected, but yet the place seems peaceful none the less. Amazing area to explore. The coast line is spectacular with many coastal walks in the cliff tops, not for the faint hearted! Good comfy walking shoes needed. Boat trip around the caves and grottos is a must. The beaches are beautiful and quite warm considering it's the Atlantic. A visit to the mountains of Monchique is a must for pure unspoilt nature, drop down to Silves and explore the Castle grounds and visit the architecturally beautiful church, before having lunch at one of the many restaurants.
Locally there are 2 restaurants at the beach. Both are fab for an informal light meal. For something special, head out to Lagos and choose from the many restaurants along the marina or in the old town. Porto Do Mos has a large supermarket selling everything you would need to cook a meal or just have breakfast. I would advise hiring a car as the area is vast and you could, if you wanted, visit most of the Algarve and its many beauty spots. If you'd rather just kick your shoes off and spend sometime relaxing, then forget the car and enjoy the villa! It's perfect! Thank you Sandra and Kevin for your wonderful home!
The Villa was absolutely fantastic. Beautifully designed, spacious, fully equiped with a great pool
We had a wonderful two weeks in Porto de Mos. The Villa was fabulous and we spent plenty of time relaxing and lounging around the pool. The Wi-Fi and the large TV were fully utilised by the kids, and we had some great table tennis matches in the evening. The location was perfect in terms of walking distance to the beach and also a quick drive down to the Port and the Old Town. Plenty of areas outside to sit and relax, or read a book in private.
I would highly recommend Villa Trafford to anyone as is comes fully equipped for all your needs, its clean and comfortable with loads of space for everyone. The owners were extremely welcoming, gave us some great advice and were on hand if we needed anything.
Wonderful family holiday in beautiful Casa Trafford
We stayed in beautiful Casa Trafford in May 2017 as a family of eight adults and three children. We have been staying in villas and apartments for many years now and this was easily the most comfortable and best equipped. Everything you could possibly need , even an apron for those nights we cooked in. It is very well maintained inside and out with a lovely seating area and of course the fabulous pool. With 3 small children the pool area is extremely safe. Being 5 mins from the beach and 30 mins walk to Lagos, we just loved it. A big thanks to Sandra and Kevin who made us so welcome and nothing was a bother. A great holiday was had by all. Do not hesitate to book , you won't be disappointed.
Fantastic villa in good location
The villa is in a great location just outside the town of Lagos, 6 euros in a taxi, and a 5 minute walk from the beach.
The villa itself is very luxurious, with a fabulous outside seating area and BBQ/dining patio. It is very well equipped with kitchen utensils, washing machine, hair dryers in every room, blackout shutters, cot and high chair. Plus a range of games, pool toys, DVDs, and table tennis means that it caters for all ages.
The owner was really friendly and welcoming, recommending places to eat and visit during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble.
In short, we would definitely recommend a stay here for either families or groups, and hope to return in the future.
Beautiful and Sunny Spot Right Next to the Beach
Had an amazing family trip at the villa! Nothing but pool, bbq and beach. Couldn't have been more comfortable!
