About Eva and Uwe Schwaninger
Eva-Maria and Uwe Schwaninger, the owners of Vila Boavista learned about Algarve during a holiday and fell in love with it. Portugal Algarve - the land behind the coast - Serra, the Algarvian Mountain, charming small villages and towns that are similar to none of the places we could ever have been. Algarve as a place full of history and stories in which nothing, which could be of importance, happens in a rush. - These unforgettable impressions strengthened in 1992 the decision to establish a small holiday oasis on the sunny side of Europe. A novel concept - a variation between house and guest house - invites all our guests to forget the 'hectic Sundries' of everyday life. Crystal blue sea, secretive coves, the famous caves and perhaps the cleanest beaches of Europe may support the Greek geographer Artemidorus, who travelled the West Coast of Algarve in 104 BC and wrote: 'This is perhaps the place, where the Gods take rest after the day's work!!'
Eva and Uwe Schwaninger purchased this House in 1992
Why Eva and Uwe Schwaninger chose Funchal
You take the Portuguese delicacies of southern cuisine, comfort, good service, the comforts of a hotel and mix it with the freedom of a holiday home! To top it off you experience it with the feeling of being at home in a Mediterranean environment. What comes out is your fantastic holiday in Vila Boavista, as a couple, with children, or in a group with friends or family.
What makes this House unique
Convenient location The Vila Boavista is located about 2 km outside of Lagos on a hill, adjacent to the golf course built in 2000: 'Boavistagolf'. The magnificent 'Vila Boavista view' of Lagos, the sea, the expanse of the golf park and the Monchique Range encouraged the owners to decide not to have the property directly in the city centre, but away from the tourist bustle. Our guests can be in the city within a few minutes to visit the hustle and bustle, the artists, jugglers, musicians, numerous shops and boutiques, handicrafts and, of course, an almost unbelievable variety of fish taverns and restaurants. And many coves, caves and beaches are nearby; many of these beaches can be reached through fascinating hiking trails on the cliff paths of Lagos.

Our group of 12 friends loved our stay at Boavista. Everything was perfect. Antonia was so helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations and having our groceries there when we arrived. What a beautiful place. Thank you!
Property was very hard to find. Owners need to update the pin drop in their instructions.
Rooms were very hot and stupefy with no fans. Supplied towels were very small and need replacing. Best part about the stay was Antonia the cook, very helpful and obliging. Finding the property was a big hassle for the guest groups arriving on the first day and getting taxis/ubers during the stay.
Your criticism with regard to the route description is justified and we apologize for the inconvenience. The course of the road was changed, traffic lights were removed, a completely new roundabout was added. We have of course updated the route description in the meantime.
Our towels are generously sized and complying with the hotel norm in every respect; we regret that we have to disagree with you there (70cm x 100cm + 100cm x 150 cm). Perhaps you have missed that the pool and beach towels are not provided by us, but have to be brought along by our guests themselves? It's quite obvious that our bath towels would be too small for that purpose.
Up to now the house being a cool place has always been praised by our guests. But since the summer of 2018 brought one of the strongest heat waves since wheather records began, it might be possible that this had an effect on our Boavista, too. We are very sorry for that and will take that into consideration.
We are very glad that Antonia was able to indulge you a bit with her culinary skills.
We are very pleased to pass on your praise to our "kind-hearted soul".
The best thing about this villa is Antonia, she’s a angel and made are stay fab. If you book pay for Antonia, she helped us with our transfers, taxis and nothing was too much trouble. The cleanliness of the house was great. 13 of us stayed and the villa was stunning, the pool immaculate and clean, the grounds were beautiful and I will definitely return with my family. Thank you for a wonderful holiday xx
Fantastic in all aspects
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful villa. Antonia was great and everything went really smoothly. Would definitely stay again.
Perfect Party House
We were a group of 18 celebrating a friends Birthday and the house worked well. Plenty of space for everyone with all bedrooms benefiting from an en suite bathroom. Its a nice looking villa with a great pool and beautiful gardens and given you will hopefully be outside for the majority of your holiday, its the villa's most attractive asset.
Beautiful villa, absolutely perfect
We had a group of 14 of us staying for 3 nights in what can only be described as a completely idilic setting. The villa is enormous and comfortably slept 14 people. The terrace is perfect for food and wine in the evening, with the large pool providing a welcome break from the Portuguese heat. It's located under 5 minutes from the centre of Lagos but yet remote enough so that you can enjoy your stay and not need to worry about being people talking and enjoying themselves later in the evening. Taxi's are about 10 Euro's into Lagos.
I would highly recommend and certainly stay again.
