Private villa with own swimming pool. 4 bedrooms/sleeps 8. 5 minutes to Lagos
O Castelo is a beautiful villa set in a quiet location 5 kilometres from Lagos in the Western Algarve. This villa is also only 5 minutes away from award winning golf courses and beautiful beaches. The villa enjoys a large private garden and swimming pool and is surrounded by approximately 7 acres of its own and is totally private. This villa is south-west facing with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Lagos is one of the most attractive cities in the Algarve, where you can wander the narrow cobbled streets in the old quarter at your leisure, and enjoy a drink or a leisurely lunch or dinner at one of the many street cafes. You will have a choice of four large supermarkets for all your shopping needs. To the west of the city, you will find the beaches at 'Praia D'Ana' and Porto Do Mos which are great examples of Western Algarvean beaches with golden ochre cliffs. All beaches nearby are excellent for swimming, snorkelling and a range of water sports including surfing.

Weather,place,beaches,town-lagos is just so charmingly situated on the mouth of the river so quaint with so much history.The villa has lovely views and right beside some great golf which well suited some of us.We loved it!

Excellent villa with large pool. Well equipped.
We loved this villa. Spacious inside and outside. Lovely pool which had the sun on it all day. Well equipped kitchen with two fridges. Plenty of towels provided and English people looking after it, cleaning and maintenance, happy to deal with any problems. The location is completely on its own so very private but is two minutes drive from a small town with basic shops and 10 minutes drive from Lagos with plentiful supermarkets and facilities. We particularly enjoyed the kayaking trip at Lagos. A lovely villa for a relaxing holiday. We were two families and it suited us perfectly.
Ruhige Umgebung und sauberes Haus; ideal für Grupp
Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen einwöchigen Aufenthalt. Das Haus war sauber und die Einrichtung
in einem guten Zustand.
Auf dem Grundstück stand uns ebenfalls ein Pool und ein Grill zur Verfügung mit genügend Sonnenliegen
für die ganze Gruppe.
Als wir ankamen waren die Gastgeber sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. In der Umgebung gibt es genügend
Geschäfte um die nötigen Einkäufe zu machen.
Der Strand Meia Praia ist mit dem Auto ca. zehn Minuten entfernt. Zweimal sind wir in die Hafenstadt Lagos
reingefahren. Die Stadt hat viele schöne einheimische Geschäfte, Restaurants und Cafes.
Zusammenfassend denke ich, dass das Haus sehr gut geeignet ist für Gruppen und Familien, aber auch ein
idyllischer Aufenthaltsort für Pärrchen sein kann :)
a TOP holiday home.
We just spent a full week at this beautiful holiday home with a lush green garden. The description of the house is accurate and you have all you need to make this a very pleasant stay. If you seek calm, comfort and privacy...look no further. Beautiful pool, fully operational kitchen and many pots and pans, lots of glasses,... Excellent beds too and even for children the house has 1 adapted seats for the toilets... All has clearly been done to make this a comfortable stay. With the help of Sarah (local house manager - very helpful ) all is there for a perfect and no worries stay. We truly enjoyed our stay at this place that felt a 2nd home in no time. The area of Lagos is both interesting for young and old. Lovely town and harbour. Contacts with Susan and Martin (owners) were friendly and fast responses. Congrats to them for this excellent service and beautiful location/villa. We recommend it eyes closed to anyone - a family from Belgium. :)
Perfect for a family holiday
We stayed at O Castelo for two weeks in May 2013. We had a really lovely holiday there, it is the perfect place for a family get together.
The villa is a really lovely space, away from all the hustle and bustle but only a short car journey to a great supermarket, the town of Lagos, and the gorgeous beach.
We had a wonderful stay at the villa. It is really spacious for plenty of room for everyone. There were 6 adults and a child staying there and there was plenty of room for us all. It's a great place for kids, there's a lovely garden with a little swing which our toddler loved. My mother also loved the peaceful garden - full of lovely foliage and flowers.
The house is really well equipped. We did a lot of cooking while we were there and the house had every utensil you could need. The kitchen is a really big room and there are two fridges which we found really useful as we could fill one with water and drinks and use the other for food. There is also a utility room with washing machine etc and several bathrooms. The house is really well kept and very clean.
The pool area is lovely, really spacious and clean and with a fabulous view over the countryside. The pool itself is a really good size and there is an outdoor BBQ which we made plenty of use of. There is a lovely bedroom at the bottom level of the house which opens out onto the pool area. This room also has a canopy which extends out to give some shade to the pool area for those who want a break from the midday sun!
It is a really peaceful location, the only noise we heard was a rooster from the local farm who only seemed to rouse around midday.
The local area is really nice, there are plenty of affordable restaurants in Lagos and beach restaurants on the nearby Meia Praia.
We had a really enjoyable holiday here and would definitely recommend it for groups of families or friends.
Stunning setting, wonderful holiday!
We spent two sun filled weeks in this gorgeous accommodation. The description was very accurate regarding location, layout and facilities. The property is a little off the beaten track from the hustle and bustle of down town Lagos which makes this place such a gem. It is so peaceful and relaxing, a real haven tucked away in the rustic hills of Odiaxere yet you can be in the heart of Lagos in 10minutes or on the beach or golf course in 5 minutes. Whether it be sunning yourself by the pool or reading your favourite novel in the comfort of the cool living room, Casa Castello has got something for everyone. Its kid friendly too which makes for great family fun. The kitchen is a joy to cook in (even on holiday!) which means plenty of fun nights dining on your own private terrace! The property was well maintained and you can tell that the owners really love the place and are keen to ensure that their guests have a great holiday experience. We had a fabulous stay and would definitely return again.
La villa est magnifique, idéalement située ,au calme. Parfait pour deux familles avec enfants car deux chambres se situent en haut de la villa et deux en bas, donc une certaine indépendance. Tout est prévu pour les enfants et il ne manque rien. Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable et aurions volontiers prolongé notre séjour. Seul bémol: la présence très abondante de moustiques.
