About John Griffiths

Having lived in Portugal most of my adult life & loving this part of the Algarve, especially Lagos, Porto de Mós was the obvious choice as it still retains its typical Portuguese charm and as this is where I live it seemed the right choice to provide high quality holidays right here

John Griffiths purchased this villa in 2007

Why John Griffiths chose Lagos Town

The 'location' - the Surveyor told me that there are no more than 100 properties along the whole Algarve Coastline in such a location

What makes this villa unique

The views, changing hourly with all of the different boats, fishermen (day & night), yachts, dolphins & more frequently whales

Wonderful location and a fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Porugal for more than 20 years and Lagos (in particular Porto de Mos) is the best location in the Algarve. This villa overlooks the sea, you wake up in the morning to waves rolling in and a blue sky - perfect.

This Villa is new, clean with wonderful views. The villa is modern and spacious and easily acomodates 8 people. Modern kitchen and bathrooms with all facilities. The lounge has satelite TV with 100's of channels - ideal when you just want a night in.

This Villa is imaculate, ultra clean, with all the facilities you could require.

Within 100 yards there is a restaurant on the beach that has wonderful food, wonderful for a lunch snack but brilliant for an evening meal, fabulous food watching waves roll in off the Atlantic and not expensive or pretentious.

Unspoilt paradise - visit before it gets discovered.

Went with my entire family (10 of us) and had one of our best holidays ever!

  • 4 of 5

The villa was almost perfect, very high standard, great location (the view is breathe taking) and very comfortable. It was only let down by the building work going on next door and to be honest we would have liked prior notification, so if you like a lie in be careful to take ear plugs. The cleanliness was very high although it was a surprise that washing towels attracted an additional charge but don't worry the washing machine works well, from my point of view after paying a few thousand pound you'd think it would be included. WIFI isn't good. John the owner kept his distance and the deposit was paid back swiftly. The only suggestion I'd make is include the thrills in the price John because it is a bit tight, you have almost as long as BMW options list, and a few extra quid on the upfront villa cost won't put us off when we see what we're getting but having to pay for washing towels and heating the pool etc isn't good 👍

So Lagos is lovely and to be fair what we saw if Portugal so is the country. People, food, prices, cleanliness, weather, things to do, beaches, sites etc were all 10 out of 10. We used the villas kitchen a lot but when we went out never paid more than 25 euros a head including drink! If you hate beggars and sellers this is a prefect place, didn't see one!

We will be going back to Portugal!

Excellent location and villa for family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Portugal and we could not have selected a better villa and location for a 3 generation family reunion ( 2 grandparents, 3 couples, 2 children and baby). Plenty of room, beautiful view, safe / secure location, heated pool, short walk to beach and cliff top hikes, close to golf, restaurants, shopping, etc. Photos accurately depicted the villa. Host provided quick response to fixing kitchen tap. Only drawback was the wifi was not as strong as we are used to and only worked on the main floor level - we managed. Would definitely recommend villa, especially for large family groups such as ours.

Fabulous villa!!

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful, well maintained and spacious villa. We were a family of 9 and there was plenty of room. On arrival the villa was available earlier than quoted and we were greeted by one of John's team who gave us a welcome tour. John and his team were quickly available when we needed help during our stay - very efficient. We paid extra for the pool table and table tennis to keep the kids happy. We certainly got our money's worth from the table tennis but the pool table wasn't the best quality so wasn't used very often. Our only disappointment was the building work on the villa next door which woke us in the morning on occasions and was a little noisy when relaxing around the pool. Unavoidable I suppose.

Beautiful location, gorgeous views from the villa. Short 5 minute stroll to an amazing beach. We had a car and visited some nearby resorts which were beautiful but the bus at the beach took us to Lagos for only a few euros.

Definitely worth a visit! Wonderful holiday.

Did not return damage deposit as promised

  • 1 of 5

John promised to return our damage deposit on May 11th, I followed up with two emails to him to which he did not reply. I gave him a deadline of today to pay and still no response. I have asked VRBO to look into it for us. We had no complaints at all about the state of the Villa when we left. We were very careful to take the garbage out, do the dishes and sweep the floors. We did not damage the property in any way. As mentioned John promised to return the damage deposit to us on May 11th.

2nd holiday in this villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2ND stay at this villa. We previously visited in February 2015 and it was top of the list for a return trip. Relaxing, peaceful and oozing quality. Fully equipped and finished to a high standard it provides a spacious and comfortable retreat. I wouldn't hesitate recommending both the location & the villa. ( just try not to book the weeks I'd like :). )
