Our beautiful villa comfortably sleeps 6 (possibly 8 if pullout single beds are used) with 3 bedrooms. Lounge has English TV channels, Wii console and Apple TV. Netflix. Wifi is also included. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom. It has been furnished with a modern look, to a high standard and the ground floor benefits from open plan living. It has its own private, heated pool with outdoor shower room/wc, and landscaped gardens to all sides. The villa is fully enclosed on all sides. There are large, furnished terraces to enjoy the views over Boa Vista's golf course and beyond (we are not part of this development). We have furnished with great care and to a very high standard in all areas. The villa is located in a quiet, residential cul de sac in Atalaia, 5 mins from Porto Do Mos beach and 10 mins from the cosmopolitan Lagos marina. We have also spent time ensuring the outdoor areas are comfortable and enticing. The furnished Gazebo is everybody's favourite place, year round with soft lighting.

My husband and I have 3 children and have been visiting Lagos for 12 years. We began by owning an apt on the Marina and spent all of the school holidays in Lagos! We then bought this villa and love the peace and quiet whilst still not being far from the town and beaches. There is so much to do we are still exploring. Lagos meets all needs, whether young or older! Lots of fabulous beaches nearby, as well as the busy Marina and bustling town of Lagos. A perfect place for a great holiday, which is proven by clients returning to our villa each year!
Susan purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Susan chose Atalaia
Villa Belle is peaceful and very relaxing. It has all home comforts and we have quite a few clients who rebook each year. You would not be disappointed wth your choice of holiday home if you chose Villa Belle!
What makes this Villa unique
It is in a very peaceful location (no passing traffic as we are in a cul de sac) overlooking Boa Vista Golf Course. You can relax by the pool or in the gazebo (our oasis) but then drive 5 minutes and the amazing, bustling town of Lagos is there for you to enjoy. As are the Marina and Meia Praia beach which goes on for miles - great for a long walk!!
Pool / Spa
We recently enjoyed a wonderful time at Villa Belle. The villa itself is spacious, spotless and very comfortable. We spent most of the time outside, enjoying the sun while lazing in/by the pool and eating BBQ food around the table and the gazebo. Lagos town is not far away and is a beautiful place to wander around and get lost. Sue did a first-class job of communicating with us in advance of the trip as we had a few questions. Similarly, Corinne who showed us around the villa could not have been keener to provide information. All in all, it was a perfect experience which I can’t recommend highly enough. We certainly hope to visit again.
Thanks so much for taking time to write a review. I am so pleased you all had a great holiday as I know it’s your first time in our villa and, I believe, Lagos. As you say, we aren’t far from any of the places people like to visit, but far enough to enjoy peace and quiet when lazing by the Pool!
I will pass on your kind words to my Agent, Corinne.
I would love to welcome you all to stay again so please do let me know when you wish to revisit.
Spacious well equipped villa, great location, fab outdoor space.
Would definitely recommend staying in this villa. We booked the Villa to accommodate two families, both with children (three in total) and there was plenty of space. The villa itself was well equipped and spacious. It had an excellent location, close to a variety of lovely beaches and great views over the golf course. Away from the hustle and bustle of Lagos but still within easy reach of the town. The outdoor kitchen area in particular was fantastic, the barbecue space was perfect for the evenings. The pool heating was a must for October/November.
Having recently returned from a stay at this luxuriously furnished 5* villa, I really can't praise it enough. It's set in a lovely quiet part of Lagos, yet within easy reach by car or taxi, to the stunning marina and pretty town with their bars, restaurants and shops. Also close by is the sandy beach.
This place really has the best of both worlds.
I found the villa to be spotless and very well cared for. It is so comfortable with everything you could want on hand, I happily enjoyed the peace and quiet relaxing by the pool and taking in the fabulous views of the golf course on one of the terraces.
I would certainly recommend and have no hesitation in booking again.
Thank you so much for your review. Reviews help future guests with their decision and I appreciate the time you have taken. I look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Warm regards to you and your family.
Faultless from start to finish. A breathtaking view over Boavista and the monchique mountains. The pool table and table tennis were so much fun, the kitchen was huge, the pool was heated and private, with sun all day long. I would recommend hiring a car, but the intermarche supermarket is walkable (about 25 minutes) and Luz and Lagos are a five minute drive- taxis only €7 from both. The owner was a delight to deal with, we are definitely going back.
Thank you so much, Clare, for taking the time to review Villa Belle. It was a pleasure having you stay and we are pleased you enjoyed your time there so much. A lot of our clients re visit as it is peaceful but near to the town, beaches and Marina. We look forward to welcoming you to stay again soon :)
Superb five star Villa
There is certainly something special about this property. The attention that has been given to the interior design and outside areas totally enhanced the experience and it was one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had!
The Villa is spotlessly clean. Plenty of hot water and lovely big bath towels provided. There were two of us and the large master ensuite bedroom is on the ground floor, this was ideal as we were able to use the ground and lower ground areas without feeling the villa was too big. We spent most of the time relaxing around the pool area, a lovely secluded sunny spot with plenty of sun loungers, the gazebo is brilliant for shade from the sun. We appreciated the heated pool and liked the outside pool room (shower and toilet) for showering and changing.
The games room, tv, dvd, WI and wifi were appreciated too!
The villa views are very pleasant in a very quiet area, we felt very safe and secure here.
We hope to return soon. Thank you for the care and attention that everyone gives to provide the perfect accommodation.
This is by far the best and most luxurious villa we have ever stayed in. All the bedrooms are spacious, have their own bathrooms, lots of storage space and even have their own balconies where we could sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun set over beautiful scenery.
The living areas are huge and tastefully furnished, with separate areas for dining, watching TV or chilling with a good book. Having said that, our family spent most of our time outside in the gazebo or the heated pool which proved a favourite with our 8 month old granddaughter. I loved the view of the pool with its backdrop of vibrant bougainvillea against a deep blue sky. On the days when we didn't feel like touring, it was a pleasure to just sit and enjoy!
Everyone we had contact with were extremely friendly and helpful, so a big thanks to Sue, Jackie and Corinne for all you did for us. We'll definitely be back!
Porto Do Mos is a small beach with 2 beach bars, sun loungers for hire and is 5 mins drive. Meia Praia is a 10 min drive and this beautiful white sandy beach stretches for 4 miles. There are several beach bars and restaurants to choose from all serving snacks, drinks or delicious meals for lunch or dinner. There are many fabulous beaches and picturesque coves on the Algarve to choose from - if you have a car you'll be spoilt for choice!
Faro Airport is a 50 minute drive from Lagos. Lisbon Airport is approximately 2 hours.
The nearest town is of course Lagos which is a five minute drive. Serra de Monchique is just a 40 minute drive away. Take a drive up into the Monchique mountains and enjoy a meal whilst admiring the breathtaking views.
There are many shops, banks and restaurants in Lagos town. The nearest large supermarket is a 5 minute drive from the villa and is well stocked, including some English brands. Fresh bread and Croissants are available daily. There is a newsagent selling English newspapers and magazines and there is also a florist.
On the Marina there is a number of places to book boat trips, deep-sea fishing and tours of the grottoes that lie beneath the Ponte de Piedade. You can also explore and take one of the "must see" Dolphin trips. If you wish to charter a boat for the morning or a whole day and explore by sea then this can also be booked via the Marina. There is also a very successful PADI diving centre if you wish to explore the seabed and they also run beginner's courses.
If you would like to shop then as well as the town you could visit Portimoa shopping centre (25 mins) which also has a cinema. Guia Shopping centre is a 45 minute drive. Here you will find many shops for men, women and children. There is also an open-plan eating area with many different types of restaurants, along with a cinema and bowling.
There is also a couple of excellent water parks 40 minutes drive away, or there is a daily from the marina, taking you to the park and bringing you home at the end of the day. Zoo Marine is a poplular day out for all the family. It is an entertaining and educational oceanographic facility with all kinds of amusement, bars, restaurants, shops and swimming pool. You can also book to swim with the dolphins!
