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

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, huge modern villa with ocean view and plenty of room for the 4 couples who traveled here. A very short walk to the most breathtaking beach with access to lounge chair rentals and 2 restaurants. Close to Lagos center by car, cab or a 1/2 an hour to 40 min walk where you can enjoy many restaurants and excursions.

We Loved the location, the Villa and the amazing beach.

Bring extra towels but would recommend the unit owner provide them and free wi-fi. If you plan to excercise be aware there are hills but we all managed to tackle them well . All car rentals are standard not automatic. Absolutely Fabulous relaxing vacation choice. Surprised more Americans have not ventures to this paradise.

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

First time in Lagos, Portugal and the scenery of the area did not disappoint. The villa was fabulous with everything we needed; and the few things that weren't there, the manager happily provided to us. Great spot for a large group. We had 9, plus a 7-month old. We are already trying to figure out when we can get back there! Conveniently located close to everything!

A great holiday

  • 5 of 5

My very large group (11) are all best friends from our university days who like to take large group vacations and be with each other, so this property was perfect for us. It was large, but with 11 of us we definitely saw each other.

John, the property manager, was very accommodating to my groups needs and was reachable during our stay.

Would definitely recommend the property.

Great villa and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the spacious villa which is a few minutes walk from the beach. We had a couple of bbqs and ate out in the beach side restaurants. The shops are a few minutes drive. Lagos is not too touristy which we liked.

An excellent location and Villa for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Just back from three weeks at Casa Praia, and the holiday was fantastic. There were 12 of us the first week but the Villa is so well proportioned and its facilities of a high quality we never felt crowded. The pool was lovely to be able to cool off in and cleaned regularly. The air conditioning throughout the Villa and and Annex worked very well and ensured we were not too hot at nights. We found the two beach restaurants very accommodating although you have to plan ahead and book as they are very busy. The food in both (and in fact throughout Lagos) is wonderful and amazing value. Logos itself is a lovely with historical sites and great places to eat and drink - the youngsters in our party particularly liked the Sky Bar! Kayaking was great fun and the Dolphin tour fantastic - we saw about 200!

Finally just to say like a previous reviewer the owner John was very responsive to any information we asked for or when anything needed (for example sink in the kitchen got blocked and was fixed within two hours).

I would highly recommend the Villa - minor point it's a shame the steps down to the beach stop before they actually get to the car park - the scrabble down the last few feet could be difficult for someone unsteady on their feet.

We had a wonderful vacation in this Villa. John Griffiths was most attentive trying to meet our every need. The Villa is as beautiful as it shows on the website and was a perfect place to relax, and enjoy the areas surrounding the area of Lagos. The pool was a welcome retreat with family and friends. The view of the ocean was spectacular and only a five minute walk to the beach and two fine restaurants. We highly recommend this Villa to rent. Thank you John for everything.
