Why Carlos Capaz chose Foz do Arelho
As Silver Coast is a fantastic region ( that we knew very well), we decided to build there our dream property. After discover the land, we found out the place so charming that we decided immediately to buy it and build there the villa of our dreams. We just wanted the best and we did not spare any efforts to achieve our aims. The result was a fantastic villa and an architectural master piece completely turned to the luxury relax, the sun and the views.

We stayed in Casa do Lago for a week in August 09. The villa was easily big enough for our family of 4 adults (2 parents & 2 grandparents) and 5 children, and if we'd kept the baby in our room could have accomodated the other set of grandparents too.
The villa was simply stunning and exceeded even our high expectations having viewed the website.
It has extraordinary views over the lagoon and out to the ocean. The infinity pool is fabulous and the gardens look great but better still include a childrens play area, hammocks, outdoor gym, and crazy golf. This was paradise for the kids (3yrs to 14 yrs) who also loved all the toys and games in the villa: bikes, table tennis, table football, frisbees, inflatables, body boards, bikes (helmets even provided), trikes etc... For the adults there with at least 9 sun loungers by the pool, a wine fridge, sun shades on windows that opened and shut with the sun and bikes and gym equipment for the more adventurous.
We used the outdoor bbq and the lady who looks after the house for the owners was able to arrange for people to cook for us one evening without a problem.
The villa was cleaned and linen changed mid week, and the pool regularly cleaned. All the bedrooms were big, en-suite, with floor to ceiling glass door/windows onto the patios or balconies.
Furnishings and equipment in the villa are all as we'd have at home, not the usual 'rental' standard. Touches such as all switches being labelled and a pc provided with broadband made the stay even easier.
The beach in Foz was busy, but a 25 min drive around to the other side of the lagoon and leads to acres of almost empty golden sand, with the added pleasure of looking across at your own villa.
Very happy to recommend!
Our aim is to have all clients very satisfied and we will never be happy with less than that.
All comments are welcome and we feel very gratified when clients spend their time writing such nice words about our villa.
Despite our guests positive opinions, we will not stop and very soon we will start a new improvement process in the villa with the installation of new facilities.
The villa provided a great environment for the whole family. The pool and facilities for young children are excellent and the view is superb. We had many competitions on the crazy golf and table tennis!! Perfect for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We would have no hesitation in staying again.
A wonderful week at this gorgeous villa
The villa is extremely well equipped for the whole family and very child safety orientated. We were very impressed with the safety around the pool area and the fish pond. Our grandchildren had so much to do and cried when we left! Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the main lounge was a great place for the whole family to get together. Carlos the owner was very helpful and gave us good local information and was always happy to be contacted with any queries. We had a fabulous week at this beautiful place and would love a return visit sometime.
Exceeded our expectations
A lovely villa which exceeded our expectations, a very spacious well equipped villa. The villa is as described spacious inside and out, the pool is superb lovely and warm with fantastic views. The owner Carlos welcomed us and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday. We all enjoyed our holiday and will certainly be back.
Outstanding lagoon/sea view just outside village. House is modernly furnished throughout. So disabled friendly. So much space inside and out. Extras galore with bikes, crazy golf course, solar heated swimming pool (even in Feb not too cold) etc etc.... Helpful host with local info and even posted back a piece of luggage that we left behind. Perfect for the 12 of us to get away from it all.
Superb modern villa with amazing views
Walking group of 8 adults. Oct 2015.
The group have hired many villas over the past 20 years and this is probably the best of them all. The villa has panoramic views and a 15m swimming pool heated to at least 29C. The facilities were complete as described, with ample hot water available at all times, a kitchen which was well equipped for group catering and a BBQ outside which worked well. The owner quickly sorted an internet reception problem and other minor issues which occurred during our stay. There are a number of shady areas in the garden but we would suggest that more shade could be provided near the pool.
Finally may we thank Carlos for his attention and consideration during our stay.
Jack and Mary and all the group
