About Sam Meredith

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage children. We went on holiday to Lagos in 2004 and loved it so much ended up buying an apartment in the Marina. In 2008 we decided that whilst we loved the marina apartment it was time to find something that offered us a little more space and flexibility of living accommodation and wanted the privacy of our own private pool. We view the house very much as a second home and visit it several times a year which is why we have furnished it to such a high standard and with so many items you would not find in your average holiday home; you can also be assured that standards will be maintained and wifi access and TV coverage is as good as it gets!

Hope to hear from you soon, Sam Meredith.

Why Sam Meredith chose Lagos

We find that Lagos has lots to offer for all of us. My husband loves the great choice of golf courses (Palmares being the closest), huge choice of restaurants and bars, marina, surfing and the new motor racing track. I love the weather, the beaches, the shopping (both in Lagos and at the various retail parks along the highway), the relaxed atmosphere, the history of the old town and of course the unbelievable choice in restaurants. It really is the ideal choice for a family holiday when you add to the above list the heated swimming pool, fantastic beaches on your doorstep, dolphin seafaris, water parks, Zoomarine, Lagos zoo, boat trips, etc.

What makes this villa unique

Modern property which has been decorated to a very high standard with TVs in every room, DVD library, Ipod docks, full Sky TV package including Sports, BBC and ITV, fully equipped kitchen, dining table for 8, selection of reading books. Outside you have a beautiful enclosed garden, the heated pool, elegant outside dining furniture and armchairs on terrace and 6 sun loungers around pool. Up on the roof terrace you have another dining table and chairs, 2 more sunbeds and a Moroccan day bed which is perfect to escape to! 5 minute drive to beach, marina, old town of Lagos and Palmares golf course, so perfectly situated and if you want to have a few drinks it only costs around 8 euros in a taxi. Truly everything you could wish for!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a lovely holiday...your villa is fabulous and we had such a truly relaxing time. We only went out on 2 occasions as the facilities were too good to leave. All travel and villa information was first class and spot on...


For the first time I have no suggestions, we thought the villa was absolutely stunning. It was really well equipped and had everything we needed for the week, we loved it. We also thought it was fantastic that the Villa was cleaned midway through the week, a really nice touch. Hopefully we'll be back to use it again sometime soon.

Regards, Francesca.

We arrived home yesterday and could jump on a plane and go straight back. The Villa is perfect in every way, the management staff, maid, gardeners, pool man all do you proud.


The best recommendation is that many of our visitors come back and can't wait to rebook for next year!

Notes on accommodation: This property is ideal for both couples and children. We really have tried to think of everything you could wish for in a holiday home for both adults and children with air-conditioning and TVs in all the bedrooms. For the adults there are 3 ipod docks so you can bring your ipod and listen to your own music collection in any room. There is also a good selection of books should you run out of reading material - we are happy for people to use this as a 'book exchange service'. For the children we have a selection of DVDs and a toy box. There is a Graco travel cot suitable for babies and you can hire a high chair from our management agent. The property has also been equipped with a modern alarm system for your security and the security of your belongings. The alarm system is linked to a call centre with 24 hour staff who can contact the emergency services for you in the unlikely event of them being required. Outside: The property is accessed via electric gates and is totally enclosed by a stone wall so is very secure for young children. On entering the gates there is a cobbled driveway and car port to the side of the house. There are 2 terraces leading out from the living/dining area - one is equipped with an outside dining table for 6 and Weber barbecue; the other with an outside sitting area. Steps from here lead down to the pool area with 6 comfortable loungers. The lovely heated pool is 9m x 5m and 1.6m deep at the deep end. From the pool area there are steps to the beautifully landscaped gardens (which are not overlooked) with palm and olive trees among the many plants and trees. At the side of the house you will find a stairway which leads up to the impressive 110sq.m roof terrace with its fantastic views of the Monchique mountains to the North and the Atlantic to the South. Terrace is beautifully furnished with dining facilities for 6 and a Moroccan day bed plus 4 more sun loungers. Utility Room: The utility room is located outside the front door with a washing machine, huge boiler (so plenty of hot water) and storage space for golf clubs. Washing line across car port (so out of sight of pool!). Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bath towels and linen to be included. Maid will visit and clean and restock linen after 7 days. 2 good hair dryers and 1 set of hair straighteners. Excellent management agent on hand. Other: Hallway with video entrance system to control gates at entrance to property. A safe for passports and valuables. The outside terrace has been furnished with high quality outside dining table and chairs. Underfloor heating throughout and wood burning fire.

A little corner in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We can't praise this villa enough. It has everything you can possibly need and more. The villa is furnished to a very high standard and is spotlessly clean. It's in a quiet area with stunning views but only a short drive away from Lagos town and the beautiful beaches. The pool area is a real sun trap but there's also a huge area on the roof which has

sunbeds and a lovely day bed. The weather for our week was mixed but when we didn't want to go out there was a great selection of books and DVD's. We're already planning our next visit. If you want to get away from it all this is the perfect place to relax and de-stress. We hired a car to give us more flexibility and it doesn't cost much more than the airport transfers. Thank you Sam.

Great Stay in Casa Bella

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped Villa, that matches the description on here, and one that feels more like a home than a rented holiday Villa. The Villa is an excellent location, quiet but not in the middle of nowhere. A 15 min walk to the beach (or 3 minute drive) and 5 minute drive to the supermarket and town (6 mins if the traffic is busy!). Location means a easy drive east or west to the wonderful beaches in the Algarve - so many to do, but it was also great to spend a day lazying around the pool. We have previously rented Villa's in Portugal, France and Spain, and whilst we have never been disappointed in our choices, for the first time we have decided to return to the same Villa. We look forward to our holiday in 2016!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfect and really well equipped. We stayed with our young grandchildren and because of the enclosed site, we never had to worry about them. The pool area is lovely with covered areas as well to have a break from the sun. The kitchen was like home from home with all equipment included. The bedrooms are a great size and in particular, the en suite bathroom is modern and of a very high standard. A cleaner came in twice while we were there and the villa was spotless.The area that the villa is in is perfect, near the beach and there is a road train that takes you into Lagos itself. I cannot praise this villa enough and we are returning next year.

A gem of a villa in a relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

Stunning villa in a lovely area. Fantastic rooms and a clever lay-out with gorgeous French doors curving around the front of the villa allowing light to flood into the open plan lounge and dining area, simply lovely interior. Fabulous exterior with super pool and lots of areas to sunbathe or find a shade to read that book. Just minutes drive from Lagos with its meandering, cobbled streets, cafés and exquisite restaurants. This is a gem and all I know is that we hope to return again next year.

Thank you to Mina for keeping it spotless and to Sam for having this wonderful property and allowing us all the pleasure of staying in this beautiful area.
