Overview

About the property

House, 7 double beds, 7 baths, upto max 20 persons, daily rent=incl. 14 persons!

'Boavista' means 'beautiful view' and it was built in 1992 on a 14,000 m2 large plot. The Portuguese architect Jose Nobre designed a villa in par with his experience and knowledge of Portuguese architecture that was created in the rotunda principle. Then emerged a house that could accommodate 14 to 20 guests with 7 double bedrooms and 7 marble bathrooms. A spaciously sized swimming pool, palm trees and bright sun invite you to a refreshing swim.

The house will surprise its guests with large and beautiful rooms. Each double room has an extra bed, private bathroom, fridge and Satellite TV. Thus this house enables you to spend your holiday with friends or in group - with the pleasure of being together and also the opportunity to be 'all by yourself' for once.

The exclusive location, the view of Lagos, the sea and lots of little extras in Vila Boavista promise sunny and relaxing holiday in the Algarve. And last but not least the wonderfully clear water, the secretive coves and a delicious grilled common sole will conclude many sunny days with a delicious glass of green wine. The beautiful evenings on the terraces or in the Palm Garden of Vila Boavista overlooking Lagos at night bestows our guests with the romance of this magical place.

The highlight of a carefree holiday without any duties! Pure joy and relax on the sunny side of Europe:

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 Lagos region

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.

Great place for family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 families (18 people) with kids ranging from 2 - 12 who came for a weeks holiday. The place is very comfortable with 7 large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and most with access to the garden. The house does not have a common indoor living area other than the kitchen/dining, but this made no difference to us as we were mostly hanging out around the pool or terrace - and the pool and gardens were lovely. The location is very convenient, with a supermarket a 5 mins drive and a 10 mins drive to praia Donna Ana, Meia Praia, Ponte Peadade and the Marina. Close enough to central Lagos with it being far enough to enjoy the privacy. Antonia was a great help and really efficient - organizing all the shopping and dinners each evening - plus all the cleaning up! No easy task with that many people around! Would definitely recommend this place!

Lovely villa with a large pool , en suites in every room beautiful garden

  • 4 of 5

Would recommend flying into faro rather than Lisbon as it's a 2 and a half hour drive to Lisbon . Other wise a lovely villa with some fantastic beaches close by . You can have a maid full time , to cook & clean etc or she can just come & clean periodically . The villa had a beautiful garden and a large pool . The kitchen is really designed for one person to cook , ( lots of room to sit and eat inside & outside ) .Antonia ( the maid ) was really friendly and helpful and has lots of local

Knowledge about restaraunts etc she speaks some English but

Mainly German . We managed to understand each other despite our lack of any language skills . It was great to have a bathroom for each room as we were a large party with 4 generations all with different sleeping and waking times , so no arguments over bathrooms . Any problems we reported to Antonia were quickly sorted out for us and she was very kind to the children .

Thank you Boavista!

  • 5 of 5

Bom dia Boavista!

Our entire family (10 adults & 8 children) celebrated an unforgettable 50th birthday at the Vila Boavista where we spent a few wonderful days.

Antonia's home made food was amazing!

We laughed, danced and celebrated in the big beautiful garden and terrace. The pool was great fun for the children and we could only get them out at meal times.

Vila Boavista is a beautiful secret escape for families and friends. We felt at home and Antonia's house maid service is a Godsend for all women.

See U next holiday! :-)

Super Ort um sich zu entspannen und Spass zu haben

  • 5 of 5

Diese Villa ist super, wir waren 13 Personen die ihren BM Abschluss feierten. Wir hatten genug Platz und natürlich ist der grosse Pool auch genial. Antonia kam immer wieder mal vorbei um zu sehen ob wir etwas brauchen. Sie ist super und hilft wo sie kann. Wenn man länger dort ist empfehle ich die Anreise mit dem Auto oder sich eins zu mieten, es gibt schöne Strände in der Nähe.

Diese schöne Unterkunft ist auf jeden Fall für junge Laute sowie auch für Familien mit Kindern sehr empfehlenswert. Top!

Ein schönes Anwesen mit tollem Pool

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Boavista ist ein bisschen in die Jahre gekommen, es ist kein neues, modernes Ferienhaus, aber trotzdem ist der Wohlfühlfaktor sehr hoch. Das liegt auch besonders an den zwei guten Seelen im Haus, Antonia und Clara. Antonia umsorgte uns so liebevoll, nahm uns Arbeit und das Kochen ab, hatte stets eine gute Idee und ihre Schuld ist es, dass wir mit dem ein oder anderem Kilo mehr auf den Hüften nach Hause fahren. Sie brachte uns die portugiesische Küche näher und durch ihr Können begeisterte sie uns dafür. Für uns war es der entspannteste Ferienhausurlaub den wir jeh hatten, weil wir uns um die alltäglichen Dinge nicht kümmern mussten. Aus diesem Grund haben wir uns auch schon fest mit Antonia für 2019 verabredet!

Einen kleinen Verbesserungsvorschlag hätten wir, es wäre schön, wenn ein paar Ventilatoren in den Zimmern wären, weil es Nachts unter Umständen sehr warm ist.
