Why Exon 59 chose Lagos region

The western Algarve has one of the finest coastlines in europe with endless sandy beaches and dramatic rocky outcrops, and is blessed by fine weather for a large part of the year. Quinta da Cama da Vaca is perfectly positioned to access both the family friendly beaches of the south coast as well and the more dramatic Atlantic coastline. All the necessary amenities are just a short drive away in Praia da Luz or the beautiful fishing port of Lagos yet the villa is secluded enough so that you feel as if you are the only people on the algarve, even in the height of summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thought the villa was well equiped, with various pool and sports items. Quinta da Cama da Vaca made a perfect family holiday venue and wehad a fantastic time.

Tremendous villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was tremendous! We had 8 people, including our 3 daughters, for a family vacation. All adults and plenty of room to spread out. The villa is gorgeous and the location is ideal. The cliff-side walks to Burgau and Luz (about 30-40 mins each) were breathtaking. We were able to explore the western Algarve and the spectacular Atlantic coast beaches. After a long day beaching, it was perfect to come back to the villa and relax around the pool. Everything that you could want is within a short drive from the villa – beaches, sightseeing, wonderful restaurants, and the sea cave excursion from Benagil.

The kitchen is very well equipped and we easily cooked several meals at the villa. We also had a wonderful roast chicken dinner prepared for us on our arrival. A relaxing end to that first day of travel. Adelia was truly amazing, coming every day to clean up around the villa. It was great to have this service.

The landscaping at the villa is truly incredible. You can walk all over the property towards the ocean and there are so many little sitting areas. This was a wonderful vacation in an ideal setting! The villa really helped make the trip even more memorable.

Prachtige villa, heerlijke tuin en mooi zwembad.

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben genoten van ons verblijf in Quinta da Cama da Vaca! De villa overtrof onze verwachtingen. De werkelijkheid bleek nog mooier te zijn dan de foto's.

In de villa is heel ruim en gezellig ingericht. De tuin is werkelijk paradijselijk, goed onderhouden en zo groot, dat je er bijna in kunt verdwalen. Via de tuin kom je bij een voetpad, dat naar de zee leidt. Het strand is echter moeilijk te bereiken. De kustlijn is zeer rotsachtig. Het uitzicht op de oceaan is inderdaad spectaculair.

Het zwembad is heerlijk groot. We hebben er iedere dag van kunnen genieten, evenals van de tennisbaan. Wat een luxe om op elk uur van de dag een balletje te kunnen slaan!

Stunning property will amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We were a diverse group requiring lots of space and children of 7 11 and 15. Quinta Cama da Vaca, afforded all the space with needed with beautiful views from every window. The facilities were great, the kids spent the whole week in the pool and when not in there played tennis or table tennis. The care and attention of the owners to maxmise the views is superb. The garden is heaven, winding paths take you to stunning views all over the property. We all fell in love with this place and left our hearts there! Lovely to have a cleaning service for that extra luxury. Walk to Alvor along the cliffs for stunning sea views and treat yourself to seafood when you get there. Unspoilt and charming Alvor offers a beautiful beach, have lunch in the cafe on the beach. Unanimously the best holiday ever.

A week was just not long enough - what a stunning villa. A gorgeous and big pool, beautiful and expansive gardens, fantastic tennis court, a secluded open-bedded hut for tea time or a quiet read any time, glorious views over the sea. The villa has great bedrooms (loads of them - we didn't use them all, or their bathrooms) and a charming open plan living room with big open doors out to the pool and the adjacent ping pong table. Oh yes there's a ping pong table. And table football, w-fi, TV, games, books, gorgeous objets & art on the walls - the lot. In high season it's as quiet as low season - total peace & quiet. Wants for nothing. We absolutely loved it.

A beautiful villa in a stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 adults and 3 children aged between 2 and 74 and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful villa. The kids loved the pool and the extensive gardens - trying out every sun bed, day bed and hammock available and the adults loved the views, the walks and the relaxation. The villa was well prepared for our arrival, including the all important fence around the pool and was regularly cleaned and maintained during our stay. We loved exploring the local area, including the pretty fishing village of Burgau, just a short walk along the coast.

We would definitely stay at this villa again.

Fantastic Easter break at Cama da Vaca.

  • 5 of 5

We were two families looking for a relaxing easter holiday with the kids and this villa fulfilled our plans perfectly.

The Gardens are wonderful , and lead all the way down to the cliffs where you could walk in either direction to Luz or Burgau. We were lucky with the weather (only one cloudy day) and managed to visit a few beaches mainly in the west up to Sagres.

The villa is very peaceful (private) and we spent most of the time there eating lovely fish at the barbecue. The kitchen has everything you will need even for a large group. The villas daily maid service kept everything in order and clean.

The kids aged between 5-10 enjoyed running around the gardens , constantly playing hide and seek in and outside the house. The tennis court was a very big plus.

Thank you David!

Highly recommended !
