About André Carvalho Lima

I'm André Lima. I was born in Lagos and I am currently working as Digital Engineer in Bristol, UK. At the mean time, I manage this rental property owned by my parents.

My father has a construction company in Lagos and one of its works is this villa.I am helping my father to grow up the rental business and improve his construction enterprise.

Why André Carvalho Lima chose Lagos Town

We lived in that house during 6 years and now we are living on a farm villa because it was my parents' dream. We didn't sell the house because we know that it is located on an excellent place to rent. Boavista Golf Resort & SPA might probably be one of the best holiday places in Lagos.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located on Boavista Golf Resort & SPA, one of the best locations in Algarve.

Boavista Golf & Spa Resort in Lagos has everything for the perfect holiday, If you're looking for an holiday in Algarve with quality golf in a spectacular setting with the sun on your back, you've come to the right place! Boavista Golf & Spa Resort offers much more than an exceptional 18 hole golf course. Wonderful beaches a short drive away... world class Spa and health club facilities... floodlit tennis courts ... play area and football for the kids... child friendly, quality restaurant on site ...Vibrant town of Lagos on your doorstep...

Boavista Golf & Spa Resort has a great location on the outskirts of the bustling holiday town of Lagos in the western Algarve. Lagos itself is an attractive old town, with stunning coastline and fabulous marina the area has many interesting things to see and great places to eat.

Beautiful villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed for two weeks in this extremely comfortable villa, there's loads of space both inside and outside and everything was provided to make for an enjoyable holiday. There is a lovely covered sitting area outside with sofas, which I don't think is pictured in the details. The view from the bathroom in the master bedroom has to be the best ever! We loved it. Also we had our dog with us who had a wonderful holiday.

Stunning villa, both inside and out. Very well equipped with real attention to quality.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed opposite this villa last year and admired it enough to track it down for this years holiday. It did not disappoint at all. The villa is spacious, beautifully designed with wonderful outdoor living space too. We holiday as 2 families of 4 and the 4 large bedrooms with their own bathrooms were perfect for us. The wifi was also the best we've had in Portugal! Boavista is a great location, though we hire cars so can easily access supermarkets and different beaches. Lagos is wonderful, full of restaurants shops and activity. Likewise Luz and Burgau. We visited Quinta do Lago (soulless) and Villamoura ( fantastic marina). Our best holiday so far. Thanks go to Andre and Jacinta who are a delight to deal with - efficient, helpful, kind - couldn't be better. ( We are a bit reluctant to post this review as we don't want to share this piece of heaven too much !)

quality construction and well maintained

  • 4 of 5

Nicely maintained and clean property with spacious interiors and ample outdoor space/swimming pool etc . Kitchen could do with a little updating but everything works. Nice touch to have a secluded pagoda area in one part of the garden -perfect for a relaxing shaded read or evening drinks. Ideal for a family holiday, and has the added attraction of all the amenities of Boa Vista resort.

Wonderful Villa in a Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 5 star villa with a lovely view to the ocean. This villa is well looked after and very secure. It provides a high level of accommodation. All the bedrooms are spacious, clean and have plenty of light, the bathrooms have all the facilities required and again are kept very clean. The pool was lovely and well maintained and perfect for us and the children.

Splash and Slide was a 20 minute car journey away so very easy to get to and our favourite restaurant was at 'Praia da Camilo', Lagos.

There is plenty to do for both young and old, many beautiful beaches to the West which are not crowed and provide wonderful food. Lagos is a lovely town and has many beaches close by.

The Owners were available for contact every day if needed and were extremely helpful, we thank them for all their hospitality and valuable information which they provided.

We look forward to have the opportunity to visit again.

Fully Recommended.

Our stay in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

We (8 adults & 1 Baby) had a wonderful stay at this house. We stayed 10 days and this house was perfect for our needs.

It has a beautiful view and everything was perfect. The only thing, we wanted to turn on the lights for the pool and the garden. But we couldn't find it.

The house was clean and modern with most things you'd need in a self catering apartment. Everything was bright and airy and the pool was nice.

The terrace was great size and sun loungers, table and chairs and barbeque were provided.

Another thing was that the mattress downstairs was hard and our friends had some problems to sleep.

We enjoyed our first time in Portugal and would certainly recommend this accommodation to friends and family.

Thanks Jacinta and André for a lovely stay!

The Algarve is a region in Southern Portugal, the third richest region of the country. Every year about 10 million holiday-makers visit the Algarve. Many have chosen and continue to choose this destination either to live temporarily or permanently.

The weather in the Algarve is hot in the Summer and mild with little rain in the Winter due to the proximity of the Atlantic Ocean.

The town of Lagos in particular is known for its diversified beaches, green fields and spectacular historical sites.

There are golf courses, nightlife, shopping centres and several supermarkets and traditional shops around residential areas.

Restaurants are on every corner. A variety of fish dishes and fresh seafood as well as traditional cuisine are served. All this accompanied by the “nectar of the gods” from different regions of Portugal and from different vine varieties.

Living in the Algarve is to feel in full communion with nature and enjoy the most relaxing tranquillity.

Places of interest to visit: Alvor, Burgau, Carvoeiro, Salema, Sagres, Portimao, Praia da Luz etc., are all within easy driving distance. For the children: The Zoo Marine and Slide and Splash Water Park at Lagoa will easily entertain them for the day. There is another water park, Aqualand at Albufeira and Aquashow.

This villa are approximately 2.5 Km distance of Praia do Porto de Mós and Praia da Luz.

There are more golf locations then Boavista golf. There are Penina, Parque da Floresta and Palmares, all within a maximum of 15 minutes drive. Oceanico Courses are 30-45 minutes away.

A walk into Lagos takes around 30-45 minutes, with many restaurants on the way. But still have a very nice restaurant at Boavista that is about 150m.

There is also a private hospital a few minutes drive from the villa.
