Why eva clarke chose Faro District
we fell in love with the gorgeous peacefulness and beauty of this location, the feeling of tranquility and space is totally inspirational, and yet the hustle and bustle of lagos & portimao and all the beaches are only 15minutes drive from the villa,so we have the best of both worlds. Additionally we are only approximately 20minutes drive from the gorgeous monchique mountains and also aljezur.
What makes this Villa unique
total freedom and privacy, not overlooked at all. Villa set in 30acres of beautiful peaceful nature - pine & eucalyptus trees and little pathways, and easy access to the lake shore line. Stunning panoramic views all round the villa. Your senses will feel "at one with nature". This is the perfect place to come escape away from city life stress.....

A lovely, light and airy villa
We visited for 2 weeks in early September - a lovely villa, in a peaceful location, in some lovely countryside. Very well equipped and comfortable. Spotlessly clean when we arrived. Helpful owners answered any questions quickly. Excellent sized pool surrounded by an interesting garden. Would happily rent again.
Thank you for your lovely review of our villa, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and very much look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Thanking you very much x
INCREDIBLE HOME FROM HOME
After extensive travel staying in hotels, villas and b&b's we must say that Eva and Roger where the perfect home owner managers that we have EVER had the pleasure to meet and become friends who made our stay at their villa home special. They have everything set up as if you where in your own home with extensive kitchen and utility room cleaning products, toilet rolls, beer and wine fridge (full when we met Eva who said help yourselves) we did replace what we used even though they said not to.
They have an awesome dog Bella and cat Minnie who were a delight to look after. They do not have to stay but as we are pet lovers with dogs we said they did not have to go to the kennel or cattery.
There is plenty of wildlife to capture on camera for wildlife photographers out there. I am a professional photographer and captured a Bonellis eagle parrying with another raptor. Iberian hares, red-rumped swallows fledging, golden oriels, azure winged magpies, palid swifts, stork, heron, little egret, common waxbill, gold finch, serin, white scorpion, several varieties of butterfly and dragonfly, bee, hornet, cheeky sparrows, jay, bee eater, the list goes on and all this within the property extensive 30 acre grounds and surrounding countryside. You could stay here without travelling being something for all tastes.
This honestly is the best villa home that we have ever stayed in. Roger is an awesome Jazz trombonist and had the pleasure to listen to his band several times whilst on our two week break. Thank you Eva and Roger for your kind and friendly hospitality.
Beautiful villa with outstanding views
We has a wonderful week in a beautiful villa which provided everything you could possibly wish for. The pictures really do not do it justice, it is fabulous!Eva and Roger were great and provided us with lots of information about things to do in the area and restaurants to visit locally. Our day out on the yacht was one of the highlights of the holiday. The villa is close to Lagos and Alvor , where one of our favourite restaurants is, so a beach is within easy reach if you fancy a change from the pool. It was great to be able to feed the terrapins in the Lake, they are really friendly but watch your toes! The views were stunning and it was really peaceful both during the day and in the evening where you could sit out on one of the many terraces and watch the stars. The villa was also close to the kart track which kept our teenager amused. All in all we had a fantastic time and will definitely book this villa again next time we are in Portugal.
it was a pleasure and an honour to have you stay and thank you so very much for the wonderful comments about the villa and day out on our yacht :) Your family is most welcome again in the future and thank you for leaving the villa so immaculately clean and tidy. We do hope you will come back soon :) xxx

Relaxation at its best
Complete relaxation, peace and quiet in a clean and large but cosy villa. Casa Do Lago and Eva provided all we wished for.
The large pool and surrounding area with spectacular views ensures you never want to share with other holiday makers again!
A car is definately required and the location is not for those who want the company of others at all times.
