About John Griffiths

Having lived in Portugal most of my adult life & loving this part of the Algarve, especially Lagos, Porto de Mós was the obvious choice as it still retains its typical Portuguese charm and as this is where I live it seemed the right choice to provide high quality holidays right here

John Griffiths purchased this villa in 2007

Why John Griffiths chose Lagos

The 'location' - the Surveyor told me that there are no more than 100 properties along the whole Algarve Coastline in such a location

What makes this villa unique

The views, changing hourly with all of the different boats, fishermen (day & night), yachts, dolphins & more frequently whales

Wonderful location and a fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Porugal for more than 20 years and Lagos (in particular Porto de Mos) is the best location in the Algarve. This villa overlooks the sea, you wake up in the morning to waves rolling in and a blue sky - perfect.

This Villa is new, clean with wonderful views. The villa is modern and spacious and easily acomodates 8 people. Modern kitchen and bathrooms with all facilities. The lounge has satelite TV with 100's of channels - ideal when you just want a night in.

This Villa is imaculate, ultra clean, with all the facilities you could require.

Within 100 yards there is a restaurant on the beach that has wonderful food, wonderful for a lunch snack but brilliant for an evening meal, fabulous food watching waves roll in off the Atlantic and not expensive or pretentious.

Unspoilt paradise - visit before it gets discovered.

Superb villa in an ideal location on the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, spacious villa overlooking the sea at Porto de Mos is a perfect central location for visiting the rest of the Algarve.

The villa is very clean, well maintained and has wonderful views of the beach and ocean which are a short walk away. There are two pretty good restaurants at the beach that are worth a visit and there is a bus stop right at the beach where you can get a ride into Lagos if you do not want to drive.

There was some construction occurring on the villa next door on some mornings but we did not notice it much and it was not something that the owners of this villa have any control or responsibility for.

The contacts we had for the villa were always very responsive and helpful, I would definitely recommend this property and we would book it it for any future trips we have in this area of Portugal.

An absolutely superb villa for our large family

  • 5 of 5

12 of our family visited in August 2016 - 2 sisters with husbands and seven children between them plus dad/granddad and stayed for 2 weeks.

Everything was perfect on arrival - in lovely condition - and it was very well equipped in the kitchen and everywhere else - including the Games Room where we had table tennis and pool tables. We had booked an extra bed to give us some flexibility in the sleeping arrangements.

The sea view from the veranda was stunning - with sun every day - it was a 5 minute walk down to the beach. That was when you could drag all of us away from the villa pool which was a major attraction for all of us!

On the middle Saturday a cleaner and a gardener arrived and between them changed all the bedding and cleaned the pool and tidied up the garden.

I personally had that photo of the glass of Red Wine in the photos promoting the villa in my head since we booked almost a year earlier - and that is where my glass sat for our visit!

There are two very good restaurants down by the beach and we booked all 12 of us in for a meal for one of the children's birthdays and also on our last evening before returning to a very wet Manchester!!

As the write-up says a car is recommended. One part of our family hired a car at the airport and it came in very handy for shopping and also for taking the bags of rubbish to the local disposal point in addition to a few days out. The other 8 of us used VIP Chauffeurs to take us from Lagos airport and back and we can fully recommend them.

We could not fault this villa and indeed fully recommend it and hope to go again one day!!

Went with my entire family (10 of us) and had one of our best holidays ever!

  • 4 of 5

The villa was almost perfect, very high standard, great location (the view is breathe taking) and very comfortable. It was only let down by the building work going on next door and to be honest we would have liked prior notification, so if you like a lie in be careful to take ear plugs. The cleanliness was very high although it was a surprise that washing towels attracted an additional charge but don't worry the washing machine works well, from my point of view after paying a few thousand pound you'd think it would be included. WIFI isn't good. John the owner kept his distance and the deposit was paid back swiftly. The only suggestion I'd make is include the thrills in the price John because it is a bit tight, you have almost as long as BMW options list, and a few extra quid on the upfront villa cost won't put us off when we see what we're getting but having to pay for washing towels and heating the pool etc isn't good 👍

So Lagos is lovely and to be fair what we saw if Portugal so is the country. People, food, prices, cleanliness, weather, things to do, beaches, sites etc were all 10 out of 10. We used the villas kitchen a lot but when we went out never paid more than 25 euros a head including drink! If you hate beggars and sellers this is a prefect place, didn't see one!

We will be going back to Portugal!

Excellent location and villa for family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Portugal and we could not have selected a better villa and location for a 3 generation family reunion ( 2 grandparents, 3 couples, 2 children and baby). Plenty of room, beautiful view, safe / secure location, heated pool, short walk to beach and cliff top hikes, close to golf, restaurants, shopping, etc. Photos accurately depicted the villa. Host provided quick response to fixing kitchen tap. Only drawback was the wifi was not as strong as we are used to and only worked on the main floor level - we managed. Would definitely recommend villa, especially for large family groups such as ours.

Fabulous villa!!

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful, well maintained and spacious villa. We were a family of 9 and there was plenty of room. On arrival the villa was available earlier than quoted and we were greeted by one of John's team who gave us a welcome tour. John and his team were quickly available when we needed help during our stay - very efficient. We paid extra for the pool table and table tennis to keep the kids happy. We certainly got our money's worth from the table tennis but the pool table wasn't the best quality so wasn't used very often. Our only disappointment was the building work on the villa next door which woke us in the morning on occasions and was a little noisy when relaxing around the pool. Unavoidable I suppose.

Beautiful location, gorgeous views from the villa. Short 5 minute stroll to an amazing beach. We had a car and visited some nearby resorts which were beautiful but the bus at the beach took us to Lagos for only a few euros.

Definitely worth a visit! Wonderful holiday.
