Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely stay at Casa Ella. The apartment is very well appointed with all you could need including a very well stocked library of reading books and dvds.

The outside area is what makes this apartment particularly special. The gardens are well tended and the palm trees offer lovely shaded areas from the hot summer sun whilst watching the kids have oodles of fun in the pool.

Would recommend to anyone ... walking distance to the beautiful Porto de Mos beach and 2 lovely restaurants. And just a short 5 min drive to Lagos and local supermarkets.

Great apt in a quiet, well maintained location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer holiday spent at casa Ella. I think that says it all! It is a great apt and well stocked with everything you need. Walking distance to Porto de mos beach and the restaurants there. Short drive into Lagos and surrounding towns. Great pool area and garden which are regularly cleaned and maintained. We love it!

Lovely stay, in a quiet small complex.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, could easily watch my 6 year old in the pool from the living room and terrace area. Lovely quiet area which suits families. You do need a car for access to the town center /restaurants. Lagos town centre has great cafés and shops. Took one of the many boat trips from the marina which was well worth it. The science museum in lagos was very entertaining and very cheap at 7 euros for 3 adults and one child.

Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday with our 15 month year old and Gary ensured we had everything we needed for when we arrived, with a fantastic welcome pack. The apartment was clean and really family friendly. Great location, 5 minute drive into Lagos old town and short walk to a fantastic beach. Car is recommended to explore the spectacular coastline and national parks in the area. We had a great holiday - thank you Gary!

Awesome Apartment, superbly maintained property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have spent the last 21 winters (away from the Canadian cold) here in the Algarve and this apartment is by far the best that we have had the pleasure to live in. It is well equipped and has everything that one requires for a long or short stay. The patio overlooks the pool and beautiful gardens which provide a splendid backdrop for daily meals outside. The property is immaculate and superbly maintained by Fred and Doreen. We will be back again next winter, I highly recommend this apartment.

An excellent stay in a lovely apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay back in September in Casa Ella. All mod cons were available and the Jacuzzi Bath in the en-suite bedroom was a big hit. The apartment itself was spotless and roomy as were the grounds around it, meticulously maintained by the friendly staff.

The beach is only five minutes walk away and the path is paved almost to the beach with only the last 20 metres or so "Under Construction" on our visit. The beach itself is beautiful and spacious and you never feel that its crowded.

Two restaurants flank the entrance to the beach, our group enjoyed both, book as early as you can.

There are some nice cliff walks, going east to overlook Praia de Luz and going west to the lighthouse at Farol de Ponta da Piedade is in my view unmissable but it can get a bit tricky in places.

I would recommend hiring a vehicle at some point if your planning to explore more of the Algarve, I really wanted to visit the mountains at Monchique but a huge forest fire raging during our stay put paid to that but if you only plan on keeping it local the taxi services are more than adequate.

Casa Ella comes highly recommended and it'll be my first port of call on my next visit to Lagos.
