Ameijeira Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Three charming and fully-equipped apartments right above the beach

Welcome to CasaTrigoso!

Our quirky old property is located just above Dona Ana Beach - one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve - and only a 5-minute drive or 20-minute walk from downtown Lagos. We offer three spectacularly well-located apartments for rental: a one-bedroom terrace apartment and a two-bedroom veranda apartment with stunning views of the sea, and a two-bedroom apartment with a large, enclosed patio also facing the sea.

Please ask us for our web address, where you can read more about CasaTrigoso, see all our photos, check past guest reviews, and request a booking!

*CasaTrigoso is registered under Alojamento Local 10938/AL.

To note before booking:

* Please be aware that our property is a quirky old beach house and sometimes has quirky old beach house problems (sometimes the gas bottles need to be changed, the fuse may trip, and random things may break). We are a tiny mother-daughter business and we do our very best to quickly solve any issues that may arise, but prospective guests should be fully aware that our apartments are not newly built, do not have fancy stainless steel kitchens or the latest décor. If you would like a new apartment, there are plenty of wonderful options in and around Lagos that you will likely enjoy more than staying with us. If, however, you enjoy cozy old houses with stunning ocean views and plenty of character (and possibly a resident spider or two) then do consider booking with us — we will welcome you with open arms.

House Rules

1. Bedding and towels: These will be provided for the number of people in your party. If you stay with us for over a week, someone will stop by on day 7 or 8 with some new linens for you and will ask for your old ones to wash. As with the cleaning fee, we will almost always remember to do this, but if not, please just get in touch and we'll fix it.

2. Toilet paper, coal for the grill, etc.: We will provide enough for the first few days, but guests are responsible for purchasing their own.

Decoration is simple yet cosy, providing guests with a warm and homey experience. The apartment is ideal for a romantic getaway, and provides comfortable living for two adults. While having a stunning view of the sea, the terrace is completely secluded from any surrounding houses and is an ideal spot for sunbathing during the day, and grilling fish at night while having an evening meal under the stars.

The apartment comes fully equipped with all amenities (fridge-freezer, stove-top oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, coffee-maker and toaster in the kitchen; washing machine in the bathroom - no dryer) and rental includes linens, duvets and bath towels for two people (we may be able to provide additional sets upon request).

About Maria Trigoso

We’re a very small mother-daughter business operation that started out rather haphazardly in Lagos in May 2010 over some glasses of wine. The mother is in charge of things ‘on the ground’ - making sure everything runs smoothly when guests arrive, arranging the cleaning, counting bed linens, etc. - the daughter is more on the ‘backoffice’ side of things - making sure emails are replied to, the availability calendar is up-to-date, etc. The property has been in our family for well over 60 years and both the apartments we rent are where we vacationed (and occasionally still do!) as a family back when kids were smaller. It’s an old house and and we’re constantly trying to renovate what we can. This is only the beginning, and we hope to make more apartments available as we have them ready!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Casa Trigoso is a lovely holiday apartment. It is very spacious and ideally located for the beach and walking. It was wonderful eating out on the sunny terrace overlooking the sea and seeing the sunset.

Perfect place, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

The Terrace apartment provided the perfect setting for a perfect vacation. Just a couple yards from Dona Ana beach (well, its 95-step staircase, actually) and with a view of the rising sun, the fully furnished apartment could not have been a better choice for this first trip to Lagos and the Algarve. Maria was a delight--very helpful and attentive. The apartment became a second home--I'm very much looking forward to making a return visit in 2016.

The area surrounding the property is generally quiet and there are two neighbourhood stores functioning year-round, as well as a small coffee shop open during the summer months. The entire property faces the sea and to one side has a tourist condo and on the other side the cliffs that go all the way to Ponta da Piedade (please check the map provided for info on the surrounding area) - however, the upstairs apartment and terrace is completely secluded from the nearby tourist condo.
