About the property

Villa in Portelas, Lagos, Western Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location 5 Minutes to Beach

Quinta da Matina is a beautiful renovated farmhouse set in mature sub tropical garden on the edge of the village of Portelas, having views of Funchal ridge to the south and Monchique mountains to the north east. It is ideal for people looking for a tranquil location yet being very near the beaches and the historic town of Lagos with its many restaurants, beach bars, the marina, interesting shops and discos.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

The house is an "L" shape around a lovely pool where there is plenty of shade from the midday sun. It is well furnished and comfortable.

We stayed with our children (aged 18 and 20) and their friends who, because of the close proximity of Lagos itself, where able to go into town in the evening with only a short (and cheap) taxi ride home.

The owners live next door. They keep themselves to themselves but are on hand if you need anything.

We would highly recommend it.
