Cozy old beach homes overlooking the sea - Veranda apartment

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights



Veranda apartment

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.

About the property


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.

Extra fees

1. Additional guests: we charge EUR 20 per person per night for parties of more than four people in the veranda and patio apartments and two people in the terrace apartment.

2. Cleaning fee: for stays under four nights we charge a flat-rate cleaning fee of EUR 100. Stays over four nights are not charged this fee. Because of the way some booking systems work, this fee may be charged by default on your booking and only after are we able to manually remove the fee. We will almost always remember to do this but if not please do let us know so that we can correct it and you are paying the right amount. Thank you!

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. 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

• Nationality

• 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.”

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

As mentioned in the description, the apartment is quirky but it we like quirky so it worked out great for us! We were two couples and loved that there were two bathrooms. Constructive feedback would be that the showers could have used a way to set up the handheld shower sprayer instead of having to hold it while you shower. That was a pain and seems like an easy fix.

We made brunch two of the mornings of our stay. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking but be prepared to bring any spices or oils that you need to cook with as there was only salt available.

The location was fantastic! Right on one of the best beaches in Lagos and an easy walk to the town.

We had a rental car and there was a spot to park on the property which was very helpful.

It was quiet and peaceful and we definitely enjoyed our time. Maria and Rosa were also available for questions and answered immediately when we had a question about using the stove.

Cozy and Quirky old beach home Incredible view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 4 nights stay in the Verandah apartment. The view is incredible! It is the most beautiful beach in the algarve and you are right on it. It is out of the main city but there are still good restaurants around. The house is adorable and comfortable and has all the amenities you need. They even provided us with a bed for the baby and a high chair.

We enjoyed a 4 day stay in the Verandah apartment. The location is stunning if you are after a beach holiday. It is out of the hustle of the town but close enough to walk and enjoy all that it has to offer. Enough amenities in the immediate location to exist in and around Donna Ana. The house is more than comfortable and well fitted out. We look forward to returning.

Urlaub August 2017

  • 5 of 5

Ein wirklich sehr schönes, ruhiges Ferien-Apartment. Man ist sehr schnell - auch zu Fuß - in der Stadt Lagos (10-15 min zu Fuß). Und es ist auch super nah am Strand, man muss nur eine Straße überqueren und die Treppe runter. Der Ausblick aufs Meer ist einfach nur atemberaubend und auch Abends noch sehr schön wenn man die Lichter von Portimao sehen kann.

Das Apartment ist schön groß und sehr gemütlich eingerichtet. Es ist alles da was man braucht, besonders Waschmaschine und Spülmaschine waren sehr praktisch. Auch die Parkmöglichkeit auf dem Gelände war sehr praktisch, da es an der Straße ab Mittags sehr voll sein konnte und man kaum freie Parkmöglichkeiten hatte.

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und können die Apartments nur weiterempfehlen.

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

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.
