April 2012

Many thanks for letting us use your lovely apartment! We cannot fault it at all, it's beautiful and has everything we need. This is our first time in Portugal and we have had a lovely time. We would definitely like to come back and stay here again.

Many thanks once again Liz, Mark & Sam - Southport

Dear Phil & Sylvia, thank you for the use of your fantastic apartment. It is in a great position overlooking the pool and the 17th green. The facilities in the apartment and on the site live up to the 5* rating.

Paul, Karen & Joe - Telford, Shropshire



April 2013

Thank you Phil for letting us holiday here. Have been to Lagos many times but your apartment is the best. Everything has been thought about to ensure a relaxing holiday. It is in a lovely position on Boavista with views from both balconies. Finished to a very high standard. We will be back next year.

My sister, Mum, Dad & I have had the most fabulous two weeks mainly due to your gorgeous apartment with its excellent facilities. We visited numerous beaches, including Praia de Luz & Lagos all of which we would recommend. We have also enjoyed many hours by the wonderful pool. One of my Dad's favourite past-times was laughing at the golfers attempts to negotiate the water hazard (17th green).

Would love to come again,

Many thanks

Beautiful apartment - greatly appreciated. Extremely comfortable bed and first class furnishings & equipment. Wonderful views with excellent clubhouse facilities.

The use of your golf clubs was particularly useful and hope to improve my golf this year. Enjoyed Luz & Lagos and will certainly return to your apartment.

Thanks Phil for all your help,

Heather & Mike - Cheshire

Thanks Phil & Sylvia for a wonderful holiday, 5th time back for us since first coming in 2007! Would recommend Sunday dinner at the clubhouse at 16 Euros per person from 7.30pm. Pool & gym excellent which we used several times. Visited some fabulous beaches on the West Coast near Vila da Bispo.

Thanks again - Jill, Chris, Rob & Isabel

Outstanding apartment in an excellent resort

  • 5 of 5

An outstanding apartment in an excellently managed and luxurious resort.

Everything about this resort was welcoming, easy going and just so enjoyable in every respect. From arriving at the resort to entering the apartment was a breeze thanks to the helpful staff. The apartment is finished to a very high standard and has fantastic views over the golf course with the coast in the distance. It is well equipped and located in one of the best areas of the resort. The local town offers many attractions and is just a few minutes drive. We had a thoroughly good time staying here, I strongly recommend it to anyone who is considering a holiday in Portugal.

Phil, thank you so much, we had such a good time.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth consecutive Summer holiday at Boavista - our first stay at this apartment. Boavista is simply fantastic from the relaxed feel of the place, the facilities, the general attitude of everyone who work there and it's close proximity to Lagos - a really nice town with fantastic places to browse around and great places to eat. Numerous excellent clean, and non-crowded Algarve beaches are within a few minutes drive and then there's the golf - Boavista is very good and a good golfing challenge plus there are numerous other high quality, even more challenging courses within a 20 minute drive (Penina and Palmares to name just 2). A car is not absolutely essential if staying at Boavista but be prepared to walk considerable distances or paying for taxi's if you don't have one.

Now the apartment .... fantastic! and equipped with everything you could ever want for a home from home. Furnishing and fittings are all high quality and Sky sports a really bonus! It was that good that we have already booked to go back.

Best wishes, Phil

Overlooking the water hazard, overlooking nothing!

  • 5 of 5

We never tire of Boavista and Lagos despite seeing several other places. There’s always something to do or somewhere to go. Be it dolphins swimming in the ocean, a new 18-hole putting course, the memorable clean beaches, a Portuguese tapas restaurant that’s excellent…even sober! Perhaps it’s the organized owners’ free wi-fi, the free gym for the boys’, the archery, the cleanliness of the helpful maids, the complimentary golf clubs, the private balconies overlooking the water hazard and one of Boavista’s beautiful, big pools…whatever.

It works for us every time. And that’s seven times. Thanks again Phil and Sylvia!

Owner's Response: Hi David, many thanks for your review. I agree Boavista has many activities for energetic youngsters, as you've detailed above, and is ideally positioned between Praia de Luz and, to my mind, the jewel of the Algarve; the town of Lagos! Really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday, once again, and we look forward to hearing from you in the future! Best wishes, Phil

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have visited Boa Vista and stayed in this fantastic apartment. We had a very relaxing break as the apartment was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we needed. Phil was very extremely helpful with our booking too. We will certainly return for a 3rd stay!

Great Apartment with unbeatable views

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth stay at Phil & Sylvia's apartment. Booking process is straightforward and dealing with Phil is always a pleasure. New layout in lounge gives impression of space. A Home away from Home as all fixtures and furnishings are to a very high standard. Daily maid service is an added bonus to the stay. WiFi works really well and is fast. Sky TV package is another bonus. We are non golfers but we never tire of watching the golfers coming down the 17th fairway and trying to avoid the many lakes. In our opinion this apartment is situated in the premier position on Boa Vista resort. Free Spa/Gym/Sauna/Steam/Jacuzzi is always available if weather is inclement. We hopefully will return in 2017 for our fifth stay.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideally located apartment on the BoaVista golf course. The apartment itself is well equipped and is cleaned daily. The balconies on both sides of the property ensure that its always possible to sit in the sunshine, with views over the pool or golf course. The beaches and town of Lagos are only 5 minutes away by car. Never too busy or noisy, this apartment was an ideal location for a relaxing holiday.

Location

From the Owner

We have always loved the Western Algarve because of its dramatic coastline and many beautiful beaches. In contrast are the quaint fishing villages, untouched by time, where the real Portuguese life can be experienced. Boavista enjoys a beautiful location on a headland between Lagos and Praia da Luz, commanding magnificent views of the Bay of Lagos and the distant Monchique Mountains. The property & resort/golf facilities are first class and offer a secure environment. With an average of 3000 hours of sunshine per year, which is more than California, where better to enjoy your holiday & favourite pastime.

Coast/Beach:

The Western Algarve has a dramatic coastline and many beautiful beaches catering for walkers, families and water-sports enthusiasts alike. In contrast are the quaint fishing villages, untouched by time, where the real Portuguese life can be experienced. Monchique mountexperienced. ains offer a challenge for the more serious walker and stunning coastal walks to Praia Da Luz or Porto de Mos can be enjoyed direct from the apartment.

The nearest airport is Faro International. The journey time to Boavista Resort is approximately 50 minutes and is easily reached via the new motorway. Whilst taxi services are available, car hire is highly recommended to get the most out of your holiday.

North; the picturesque mountain town of Monchique is approx. 40 mins and the bustling city of Silves is nearer still. West; the quaint fishing villages of Burgau & Salema are around 10/15 mins and the rugged coastline of Sagres & Cape St. Vincente, the most Westerly place in Europe, is around 40 mins. The nearest Supermarket, Intermache, is less than 5 mins by car (door to door).

If you want to do nothing but laze in the sun there are beaches of all shapes & sizes from the long sandy stretch of Meia Praia, some 6km long, to the small cliff bound hide-aways of the Ponte Piedade.

If you feel like giving the beach a miss one day, head up to one of the regions barragems (dams) for a peaceful swim/picnic. The Barragem de Bravura near Odiaxere, on the outskirts of Lagos, is a tranquil haven complete with eucalyptus-scented water for swimming.

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Megalithic monuments in Evora.
