This is a beautiful two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a living-room, dining-room and fully equipped kitchen. The apartment features a quaint veranda directly facing the sea, perfect for morning coffee and a day of reading and watching the waves.
Like our other apartments, decoration is simple yet cozy, providing guests with a warm and homey experience. The apartment provides comfortable living for 4 adults. The apartment consists of two bedrooms with two single beds each, and two full bathrooms across the hall. The livingroom seats 6 people comfortably and has a spectacular view of the sea. The veranda is accessible through both the living and dining rooms, and has a small table and some chairs.
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.
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. 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.
3. European Union identification law. We require that all non-Portuguese guests (including minors traveling with family) provide us with the following information:
• Full Name
• Date of Birth
• Place of Birth
• Document Type (passport, ID)
• ID/Passport Number
• Country of Issue
• Country of Residence
We can provide additional information on this requirement upon request, but in the meantime here is a short explanation found online: “Since 2015 Portugal has more strictly enforced a long-standing law requiring anyone providing paid holiday accommodation to record the entry, exit, and identification details of all non-Portuguese nationals who use that accommodation. This law has been brought into force in Portugal and most other EU countries at some point since the gradual implementation of the 1990 Schengen Agreement that aims to stop human trafficking and other illegal practices. In this case, it is specifically Article 45 of the Schengen Agreement and the recent Alojamento Local law in Portugal that has brought this rule into sharper focus.”
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!
We stayed in the veranda apartment at the beginning of May and we were blown away by the place. The views from the apartment are breathtaking and amazing to wake up to every day. The apartment itself was decorated so well and really homely. It is a really roomy apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, great for cooking your own meals whilst you are there, and the dining room is really charming, with a great view again. We can't wait to return to the apartment in the future, and only hope that we will be able to as I am sure it will be very popular and booked far in advance! We really felt that Casa Trigoso is set in the best location in Lagos. The town itself is a short walk down the hill, where we found lots of lovely restaurants and a great butcher and delicious cake shop. Dona ana beach next to the house is everything you'd want from a beach, the water is so clean and it literally is just on your doorstep. The coastal walk is also right next to the house, and from this you can go visit Camilo beach which is also very charming. We hired mountain bikes one day and found it was a great way to explore the coast. To summarise, this is one of those great holiday finds that you want to shout about, but similarly keep to yourself for fear of it getting too popular :). I can't recommend this apartment highly enough, it is worth every penny, and will guarantee you have a wonderful, relaxing holiday that you won't want to leave.
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.
