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.

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 :). )

Beautiful Villa, Beautiful Area, Beautiful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property is as good as the photographs if not better. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

John was fantastic to work with in getting it all organised and is very knowledgeable about the area. On arrival he met us at the property and showed us around, a couple of bulbs had blown and they were changed within the hour. We did not have any major problems, but John is always around / on the phone to help if you need.

The villa is located slightly out of town, and a short walk to the beach. An easy 5 minute taxi ride and you have the wonderful town of Lagos there, with lots of great restaurants and bars.

Our group consisted of 10 adults, but the villa would be more than adequate for a couple of families also.

If you are looking for a luxury villa at an honest price, you can't go wrong with this one.

great stay in Porto

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Porto de Mos. The villa was just great. We were only 6 persons so we had a lot of space. It is only a very short distance to the beach and the beach is perfect.(no need to look around), but you do need transportation, either rental car or taxi, for shopping and going out to Lagos. It was not easy to rent a car in Lagos. Pre-booking is a must if you want to be sure. Taking everything into consideration, the villa, the weather, the people and the food, this has been a great vacation. Hope more will follow in Porto de Mos.

Casa Bella Vista

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, just as it looks in the photo. Plenty of cutlery, crockery etc. Location was very good, just a short walk to the beach and two lovely restaurants/bars. Toilet rolls were provided at start of week but not replenished. It would have been good to have known this to avoid having another trip to the supermarket. Also an inventory of things provided, or not, would have been useful before leaving UK eg. salt/pepper. washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, laundry tablets etc. We had a great week with plenty of space for 12 of us to live comfortably and would certainly go back again.

The Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families with a total of 4 adults and 5 children and needed a minimum of 4 bedrooms. This beautiful villa had 4 bedrooms and an annex and would have slept 11 comfortably. The location was perfect, a wonderful sea view with a 2 minute walk to the beach which had 2 first class restaurants. The town of Lagos was a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute car ride depending on how active you were feeling. The villa was on 2 levels, the pool area was fantastic and there were plenty of sunbeds for everyone. The apartment was spotless and we were met by the owner on arrival. I would certainly recommend this to friends and family.
