Amazing place in the Algarve!!

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular gem situated high above the cliffs in Lagos. We recently returned from our week long stay here wishing it was much longer. After travelling to various other parts of Spain and Portugal eating out at restaurants every night this stunning villa was such a welcome relief. We were greeted by Dina the property manager after calling her from the airport upon our arrival. Everything was immaculate

( warning .. patio doors are so clean you may think they are open :). The villa is very spacious , comfortable and the outdoor patio & pool were fabulous. We did rent a car from the airport in Faro which made it easy to grab groceries only five minutes away. Walking on the beach only five minutes walk each day, and hiking the trails were a special bonus. I was in contact with the owner Jo Thomson several times prior to our trip coordinating details regarding our group. Jo responded promptly and was a pleasure to deal with. One night we needed extra bath towels and linen for the forth couple who joined us. Dina delivered them very promptly. What more can one say about the perfect place to stay in Lagos! Our entire group were blown away by this villa, the views and the amazing time spent there. We look forward to coming back to this special gem!

Stunning villa 5 minutes from the beach

  • 5 of 5

The location of this villa is what attracted us and the luxury it offered was a real treat. The whole holiday went very smoothly. We were met on arrival by Dina and everything in the villa was as described. The whole villa had a very luxurious but also homely feel.

The surrounding area is presently being developed but we found it very quiet and felt safe. Upstairs are two luxurious en-suite bedrooms. Downstairs is a smaller Queen Size bedroom looking out to the front of the house which shares a bathroom with the ground floor twin bedroom which looks over the pool. The upstairs bedrooms share a large balcony over the sea with steps down to the garden. All the beds were extremely comfortable.

There are two very good restaurants on the beach which is 5 minutes walk away. We walked along the cliff path in both directions ( to Lagos and Luz) and our daughter on an early morning run saw dolphins following the fishing boats in.

From the local beach you could hire kayaks, SUP boards and pedalos and there were many companies running boat and kayak trips from Lagos Marina.

Lagos is a short drive away which has a fascinating history and no shortage of restaurants. We enjoyed also driving out to the West Coast and into the mountains which is very easy given the location of the villa.

We fully recommend this villa and hope to holiday there again .

Stunning villa in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

What can you say:-

Jo & Jim, you have an amazing villa in a quite outstanding location and from the moment we stepped into it we felt relaxed and completely at home, so much so that most evenings were spent with the family taking in the views and having barbecues on the terrace by the pool.

The proximity to the beach is ideal for families of all ages and a welcome Mojito at the beach bar, (Camp De Mar), before the walk back up to the villa is highly recommended.

We all enjoyed it so much, look out for us next year!

Ken, Amanda & family

Excellent Villa with Amazing Sea Views

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent ten days at this lovely villa. It lived up to the description and photos and was in a prime position overlooking the sea and the beach. We were greeted by Dina who was knowledgable about the area and on hand for any issues (although we had none!).

The villa is nicely furnished, well equipped and in a prime location close to the beach. It is within easy access of a local supermarket and Lagos Marina where there are several good restaurants. There are also two restaurants on the local beach.

The owner Jo was a pleasure to deal with and always very quick with a response to any queries we had.

We will not hesitate to return and thanks Jo - you have a lovely villa!

It doesn't get much better

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this villa with our son & his wife, daughter & partner along with our two young granddaughters for a week mid-May to celebrate my 65th, and were delighted with both the spaciousness, cleanliness and the quality of the villa, as well as its peaceful and stunning location.

First impressions on going into the large entrance hall with its granite/marble staircase were that we’d chosen very well. Things just got better & better as we were shown around the rest of the rooms and bedrooms by the very helpful Dina, all of which are furnished and soft furnished to a lovely and impressive standard.

The pool area & outdoor eating areas kept up the theme with comfy & clean cushions on the sun loungers & chairs, and, thanks to the design of the neighbouring villas, this villa enjoys excellent peaceful privacy.

A short stroll took us down to the spectacular golden sands and the 2 very acceptable beach bars where we frequently visited for either lunch or dinner when not venturing out or barbecuing.

The InterMarche supermarket is only a couple of minutes drive away and offers extensive and quality choice, with plenty other decent supermarkets slightly further towards Lagos.

When we ventured into Lagos or the marina on an evening we used the convenient local bus service from just by the beach bar which is a regular hourly service and runs until around 11.30 pm, although it was almost as cheap for the 8 of us to get one of the minibus taxis back for 8 euros, so guess that pro-rata the saloon type taxis for 4 are only around 4 euros.

Ours was a last minute booking having been badly let down by another villa owner 10 days before our trip, but, with hindsight, they did us a real favour as we couldn’t have wished for better owners to deal with than Jo & Jim who were so helpful, efficient and genuinely pleasant.

Jo and Jim, thank you. The villa exceeded our expectations by a large margin. The website photos, although accurate, do not do the villa justice. The realisation when we arrived was like kids in a toy shop! As we went from room to room, and there's a lot of them, we took in the superb quality and very high level of furnishings and fittings. Dina met us on schedule and showed us around. We were impressed with the standard of cleanliness and shear opulence. We are sure that to find another villa of this high standard would be very difficult.

Upon seeing the patio, pool and ocean views our breath was taken away. We spent many an hour just taking it all in. Each evening the little fishing boats appeared, complete with lighting to attract the fish, and then one by one went back to port full of squid etc.

Down on the beach is a fabulous daytime cafe and evening meal venue with a superb menu and good pricing, it's called Antonio's. You've got to give them a visit.

Overall a beautiful villa that is worth every penny and is a credit to the owners, Jo and Jim.

Porto do Mos
Car: recommended

Porto do Mos has a beautiful beach which is protected by high cliffs. At low tide shallow rock pools can be accessed at each end of the beach making this an ideal location for families. There are two restaurants located on the beach and cliff top walks give an ideal opportunity to view the stunning scenery and are well marked out. Lagos is a 5 minute drive away and is a vibrant, working town with many shops and restaurants. The Marina also offers fishing and sightseeing trips. International supermarkets are close by.
