About the property

2 Bedrooms, Large Bright Sitting Room, Great Terrace With Wonderful Views

Casa Amendoeira is a newly renovated town house within the historic town walls of Lagos and only a few minutes walk to all amenities and beaches.

It is not the usual 'holiday' accommodation: the Casa has been lovingly restored, furnished and equipped to create a beautiful and comfortable 'home from home' for our guests. Warm colors, paintings by local artists, a gentle hint of Moroccan furnishings and lamps greet the visitor on arrival. The two bedrooms (double and twin/double) are quiet, cozy and have very comfortable beds. The kitchen is well equipped, upstairs is a bright and spacious open plan sitting room with dining area, with a cozy wood fired stove (for the winter months!) and from there outside steps lead from a balcony up to our wonderful 360° view roof terrace which is perfect for relaxing, sunning and 'Al fresco' dining, using our BBQ. Perfect for all year-round sunbathing as Lagos receives over 300 days of brilliant blue skies per year.

That said, the electric power of the Casa Amendoeira is mostly gained from a solar panel on the roof that is able to produce 1700KWh/per year.

If you want to stay 4 weeks or longer, please send us your inquiry for a personal quote. If you want to stay 5-7 days, please send us an inquiry, too. In some cases we also agree to these bookings.

About Uta & Marc

We are a couple with two children (17 and 4 years old) living in Germany. Our favorite destination for holidays was the Algarve, so for us the Casa Amendoeira is a dream come true.

Uta & Marc purchased this house in 2014

Why Uta & Marc chose Lagos

We purchased this house in November 2014, because it is in perfect condition, cozy and lovely. It felt like the perfect home from home for us, so we decided to only change some very small details, like gaining sustainable energy by installing solar panels on the roof.

What makes this house unique

The roof terrace allows a wonderful view to the ocean and the old city of Lagos. You are really in the city centre, but not in a main street. Therefore the location is quiet but close enough to be in the next good restaurant within 2 minutes. And it will feel good to know, that all energy you need comes from the solar panel on the roof. Go green...

Unique and charming apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our three week stay here. Every detail was exactly as promised online. The home is decorated fabulously and its location makes for excellent access to all things in downtown Lagos. We felt very comfortable here and the local caretaker was very helpful. Had some trouble with Wi-Fi connection the first couple days (it got knocked out with a bad rain/wind storm) but she sent good help right away and I was up and running in no time at all again.

We were there at the end of the height of tourist season so crowds were diminishing with each passing week but we enjoyed that fact very much and were still fortunate to have sunny and warm weather for most of our days.

I highly recommend this property and would love to return there again someday myself.

Excellent property. Ideally placed. Very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a fabulous week in Lagos staying in this lovely house.

It is just minutes away from all amenities-bars, shops, restaurants, beaches, marina. Couldn't be better placed. It has all the equipment you could need and all information you might need. The roof terrace is a bonus. We used it quite a lot to get a bit of breeze. The temperatures were in the mid 30's for our stay, so it was very welcome. Travelled to Carvalhal beach (up the west coast). Well worth the drive out - beware the waves are very strong. Finally made it to the top of Monchique ( it was misty last visit). Stunning views. Go early and miss the coaches. Another worthwhile trip and not too far away. Batista beach is lovely and only minutes away. Our 3 favourite restaurants were Portofinos at the Marina, Casa do Prago turn right at the bottom of the street and Abrigo to the right from Green Tile Sq. All excellent food at very reasonable prices. But, so many to choose from.

We have no hesitation in recommending this property. It is ideal. I would agree it's not suitable for young children or, perhaps the infirm or elderly (because of the house steps and the hill to the house-short but steep).

Thank you Uta and Marc for the use of your house. We've had a wonderful time.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have really enjoyed our stay in your lovely house. It has been perfect for us, beautifully decorated, equipped with everything one needs ( even sewing things and first aid kit), centrally located ( only 2-3 minutes to the fish market and the bakers) but as quiet as if in the middle of the country. The roof terrace has be in one of the best positions in Lagos old town, it certainly has a fantastic view - across the town and out to sea - a great place for eating as well. The house and the environment were exactly as described on the net. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby.

We have enjoyed staying in Lagos which is real town not just a holiday town.

We have had a super month away from the cold Northern European winter.

Thanks Uta and Marc for the opportunity.

A romantic and relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

Lagos is a bustling , friendly town with wonderful eateries serving great food at great prices. Casa Amedieora is the perfect place to stay to enjoy Lagos - a stone's throw from the centre and an easy stroll to the beaches.

The decor and presentation of the Casa were of a very high standard, exactly as described on Home and Away, and it made a comfortable and romantic base for our very relaxing holiday.

We decided to arrive by train from Faro as we had loads of time, and it was actually fine - very inexpensive, anyway! And in fact one of our favourite meals was eaten in the unprepossessing looking fish restaurant right opposite the station. The horse mackerel and sardines were sublime!

We also loved the cafe in the square straight down the hill from the house - with the crocheted tree cover - for breakfast or coffee or pre-dinner drinks or after dinner drinks or ... And the bakery just to the left is open really early and was also a firm favourite.

We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend it. Thank you Uta and Marc!

Lagos is the Algarve's loveliest, most historic town and is home to Casa Amendoeira, situated in a typical Portuguese street within the ancient Roman walls of the old town, and thus quiet day and night. We are just off the much beloved 'green tile square', Praca Luis Camoes, and as such within minutes of Lagos' famous daily fish market and its best cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. Within a few minutes walk you are on some of Europe's most romantic beaches, Lagos Old Fishing Port and Harbor, the beautiful award winning Lagos Marina and endless water sports opportunities. Some of the world's best golf courses are within a 10 min car ride. But the best thing is that Lagos is still essentially a thriving, local Portuguese town, with interesting markets, with the old town being a maze of interesting quirky fashion and craft shops. Faro Airport is an easy 50 min car ride away. Easy and free parking near house.

Other Activities: Gym, Latin Dance nights

Golf: There are numerous beautiful Golf Courses within less than 10 minutes car drive.
