About the property

Villa in Boavista Golf Resort, Lagos, Western Algarve, Portugal - near to fabulous beaches and the historical town of Lagos. Perfect for golfers and families.

This lovely villa is perfectly located in a tranquil, south facing and sheltered location, which affords the very best views of the championship golf course, coastline and countryside. The private south-facing garden and balconies catch the sun all day, whilst the upstairs front balcony provides for wonderful evening sunshine and dining overlooking the pool and the Monchique Mountains beyond. With great beaches and the lovely old town of Lagos on the doorstep, the villa provides a luxurious base from which to explore this exciting coastline. Many beautiful beaches are only a few minutes drive away and some of the best surfing in Europe is about twenty-five minutes by car. Lagos town offers plenty of fine bars, restaurants and nightlife. Guests have access to the championship golf facility as well as the spa, gym, heated indoor and outdoor pools, driving range, tennis, soccer, archery and short game practice facility.

About The Owner

We love visiting Portugal and every year we go to our favourite places. In the photo you can see me and my son at 'Sand City': this is an amazing place that is built from sand by international sculpturers. Each year there is a new theme, which is why we go there annually. Our favourite theme so far has been 'Animals': the whole area was turned into a sand jungle- an amazing sight, especially at dusk!

We chose this property because although my husband enjoys the beautiful golf course at Boavista, there are also many other things to do both at the resort and in the surrounding area.

We all love the choice of indoor pools and outdoor pools and the fact that both pools are large, so you can swim long lengths if you like keeping fit; but there is still plenty of space for children to have their own area to play, including a smaller paddling pool next to the large pool.

We all play tennis, so we use the two on-site tennis courts most days. There is a fee to use the courts, for both owners and visitors, but it's inexpensive.

We also use the free gym during our stays at the villa and the age restriction is not so high as in the UK, so our 13 year son loves getting on the running machine!

Being near pretty Lagos and an array of amazing beaches is really important to us: most days we spend the mornings using all the facilities at Boavista and in the afternoons we always head out to a different beach, usually with surfboards. Then in the evenings we often go for dinner in one of the many restaurants in Lagos.

One of the other things we do every year is visit one of the two excellent go-karting circuits, which are located between Faro and Lagos. Both cater for children and adults- one is better for adults and the other is better for children. Just let me know if you are interested and I can tell you more...

We hope you find Boavista and the surrounding area as interesting and enjoyable as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Just a short message to say that we had another fabulous holiday at Villa 50 with everything there that we could possibly need. We found some lovely beaches and restaurants and the weather was beautiful. We hope to contact you soon about returning again next year. Thanks again,' Paula, September, 2014

'What a delight in finding such lovely, well thought out accommodation. It was comfortable, clean, furnished and equipped to an extremely high standard. In addition the location is ideal if you’re looking for a relaxing holiday or as a point for exploring the area further. You won't be disappointed. AAA+. Many thanks' Mrs Evans, Nottingham, May 2008

'We, my young family and I, had a wonderful holiday in Boavista. The facilities within the resort were terrific for children and adults alike. But most importantly the quality and finish of the accommodation was first class and surpassed all of our expectations. It really was a home away from home and I would highly recommend Claire’s accommodation to friends and family alike. We hope to go back again next year.' Ian, Cork, Ireland June 2009

'Just a quick email to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday. We loved the house; very smart, clean, tidy, well equipped, spacious. Loved the garden and the views.' Helen, June 2011

A perfect villa in a premium location, with sun in the garden for most of the day and overlooking the picturesque golf course

A well furnished villa, with lots of little touches, like 2 drawers full of DVD's, games and some toys for the kids

Was great having breakfast, lunch and dinner (when in) outside in a shaded yet sunny, sheltered garden area

The Olympic size heated swimming pool is only 20 yards way and was never busy during the whole of our stay

Plenty of restaurants within 10 mins drive and all types of food available at the clubhouse (including very reasonable takeaway or a la carte )

Claire ( the owner) was a pleasure to deal with both efficient and friendly

Already booked for next year !!!!!

Excellent family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a short break last summer in this fabulous villa that met all of our needs with three teens/young adults. The villa was very comfortable, well equipped, with excellent wifi and a great range of books and videos to share. Housekeeping was excellent and the terrace and balconies created space for us all to have quiet, relaxing times.

The villa was perfectly situated near to the spacious pool which always had plenty of sunbeds and regular visits from the ice cream seller which was an added treat.

The clubhouse at Boavista was a real asset also, with its friendly service, bar meals and restaurant and we particularly enjoyed having access to the indoor pool, gym and facilities of the spa.

The surrounding area was great too - plenty of walks, great restaurants, phenomenal beaches. We can highly recommend it to all ages and families. There is something for everyone at Boavista and this villa makes an excellent base for a very enjoyable holiday.

Last note is to say that booking and making of arrangements was all done with absolute ease. Simply cannot fault it. Enjoy!

The nearest beaches are a 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk over the cliffs at the south of the resort. The beaches in this part of the Algarve are particularly fine and many have fabulous beach restaurants right on the sand. The sea is great for bathing and the sand is perfect for sandcastles. Some of the beaches, Castelejo and Armado particularly, are glorious wild and windy, with big surf.


The nearest airport is Faro International which is about a 55 minute drive away from Boavista. Many airports have budget flights to Faro, e.g. Easyjet, Ryan Air, Monach, Jet 2, Thomas Cook and Thompson airlines.


Historical Lagos is a 5 minute drive away and the Marina at Lagos takes about 10 minutes. Praia da Luz village is 5 minutes by car. The historic hilltop spa of Monchique is about 15km away and the ancient city of Silves is about 20km. Villamoura and Val de Lobo are about 40km away. The Spanish border is about a 1½ hour drive.

Further Details:

The nearest supermarket, Intermache, is 5 minutes by car from the villa. This shop sells everything from food to clothes.

The resort has a security team who patrol around the area, especially at night- they even let you know if you leave your car boot open by mistake!

The clubhouse is open all day and serves drinks, breakfast, lunch and most evenings there is an dinner menu.

As we have paid for full spa membership, visitors to the villa have free access to the heated indoor pool, gym and sauna complex. Spa treatments, such as facials and massages are available at an additional cost.

Free WiFi in the villa.
