About the property


The property is a small farm located on a protected piece of land, between the Boavista Golf Resort, and the ocean. There are three houses on the grounds: Casa Velha, the original farmhouse (max. 10 occupants), offering a very large terrace with BBQ, 4 bedrooms, large downstairs split-level living room with fireplace, dining and TV areas and another large sitting room with TV upstairs. Owners reside here some weekends and long holidays. Villa Pocilgo, a charming and cozy 1 bedroom cottage (max. 4 occupants) with open fireplace, next to Casa Velha, with its own terrace and BBQ and sharing the same amazing views across the biological swimming-pool and the gardens, through fig and almond trees and wild fennel, to the sea, . And Villa Celeiro, a very spacious 2 bedroom split-level villa (max. 6 occupants), with mezzanine,terrace.and its own garden with lawn, rockery and pine and almond trees.

One can walk along the cliff path, after crossing the land, either left to Praia de Porto de Mós, or right towards Praia da Luz. The very large biological pool, shard by the 3 houses, looks like a natural lake and is a favourite with most children! It is also a great attraction for migrating birds and small wild ducks which must be chased off the water...

Entspannter Urlaub in traumhafter Landschaft

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten zwei sehr entspannte Wochen in der Villa Celeiro. Der Blick von der Terasse auf den Garten und die dahinterliegenden Felder, zwischen denen man das Meer sieht, ist traumhaft. Die Villa Celeiro liegt nicht direkt am Badeteich, sondern etwas weiter hinten mit einem eigenen Garten und abgeschirmter Terasse, so dass man hier ganz für sich ist. Den Garten mit dem Badeteich kann man natürlich trotzdem nutzen, was wir auch sehr gerne getan haben (zum Baden ist der Teich eher für Kinder geeignet, die schon schwimmen können, da man vom Steg aus direkt ins tiefe Wasser kommt). Den nächsten Strand kann man erreichen, indem man direkt hinter dem Haus an den Steilklippen entlang wandert. Für Erwachsene braucht man ca 30 Minuten, mit einem 3 und einem 5jährigen brauchten wir knapp 2 Stunden pro Strecke - ist dann also eher eine richtige Wanderung, aber wunderschön! Mit dem Auto braucht man etwa 10 Minuten zu den Stränden von Lagos und Luz.

Die Besitzerin und die Housekeeper sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und waren immer erreichbar.

Die Villa Celeiro ist sehr schlicht eingerichtet. Die Küche könnte etwas besser ausgestattet sein, das Doppelbett im Elternschlafzimmer ist schon sehr durchgelegen, ansonsten ist die Ausstattung Ok.

Wenn man hier mit Kindern Urlaub macht, muss man wissen, dass in dem Haus einige Treppen und halbhohe Wände sind, die nicht gesichert werden können - also eher für ältere Kinder. Spielzeug war nicht im Haus, aber uns wurde netterweise eine Kiste Legos und ein Schaukelpferd zur Verfügung gestellt, worüber sich die Jungs sehr gefreut haben.

Zum Anwesen gehören auch zwei sehr liebe Wachhunde, die uns, zur großen Freude unserer Kinder, oft auf der Terrasse besucht haben.

Wir hatten hier einen wirklich tollen Urlaub und können uns gut vorstellen widerzukommen. Vielen Dank!

Press pause and rewind.

  • 5 of 5

Take a trip back in time to an era when life was way simpler. Our stay on this rustic farm was as refreshing to the soul as a dip in the cold dam on the farm was to the body!

A great location giving you a sense of isolation but close enough to Lagos for a short hop into town for supplies. Simple accommodation with just the right level of creature comforts.

Thanks Ana Maria for a lovely week. We would definitely consider going back.

Nearly perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Celeiro for 10 days in spring 2016. It is a beautiful place, especially in this time of the year. A nice house surrounded by a beautiful garden. Quiet, in nature, but only 10 minutes from Lagos and the beach by car. The house has a pleasant atmosphere. The owner Ana Maria is very friendly and helpful. Our kids like the nature and the frogs in the pool, but prefer an ordinary blue pool. Two small points of criticism: the house could have been a little bit cleaner (not the beds, they were clean) and the wifi only works 5 meters outside the house. But I would definitely come here again!

Owner's Response: Dear guest, thank you so much for your comments! It is always important to know what you enjoy most and what you would suggest is improved. Wifi is a struggle most times, but usually works when you are on the terrace, not inside the house... regrettably unable to improve that, despite many attempts with local provider. As for the deficient cleaning, for which I apologise, one word from you when you noticed this and the resident caretakers would have taken care of it immediately. We look forward to your next visit to Vila Celeiro!

Very charming house and garden with excellent view to the sea. Irina and Oleksiy, the resident caretakers, were very helpful and supportive. We will definitively recommend this place to our friends.

Lovely property in a such a beautiful location with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Villa Celeiro. Really lovely property with lots of space and kept toasty warm by the wood burner. We loved being able to walk and bike along a little track straight onto the coastal path. Owner was ever so helpful via email and housekeepers were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely rent this property again should we fancy another holiday in the area.

Idyllic, quiet with gorgeous garden+view to ocean

  • 4 of 5

Normally we should not tell anybody about this wonderful place as it is very special. A lovely house on a traditional farm with an overwhelming garden, natrural pool and view of the ocean. The walk to the beach along the coastal path on top of the cliffs is very pretty. Last but not least we have been welcomed and take care of by the very pleasant and helpful owners and care-takers.

Only the kitchen needs some renovating and new utensils.
