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 Albardeira

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.

The outside terrace has been furnished with high quality outside dining table and chairs. Underfloor heating throughout and wood burning fire.

Fantastic villa with beautiful pool, shaded terrace and rooftop deck with a view of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a beautiful, very private property with great spaces both indoor and outdoor for dining and relaxing. The heated pool and rooftop deck make it extra special, and the location in the attractive harbor town of Lagos is perfect for exploring the Algarve. We loved our week here and highly recommend it!

Nice Villa in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at casa Bella the villa was very nice and the heated pool good. The only issue we had and why we only used the pool twice was due to it being really windy it was freezing. Sam the owner was lovely and really informative but you just can’t help the weather! We will have to Come back in August!!!

Perfect spot for relaxing in the sun

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a relaxing holiday at the villa during the second week of October. The villa is located in a quiet residential area, the garden and pool are not overlooked and the villa is very well furnished and equipped, both inside and outside. The sunbeds and outdoor tables and chairs are good quality and ideal for spending a lot of time outside, also having a heated pool with a cover made all the difference. The roof terrace is good for sunbathing and also taking in the views of the surrounding area. The wi-fi signal is strong and it was nice to have Sky/cable TV to view English programmes. We had a hire car so getting about was quick and easy and Sam provided very detailed directions to get to the villa. We ate at a number of restaurants but particularly enjoyed Portofinos and Linda's beach bar. Cape St Vincent Lighthouse and Sagres Fortress are interesting and approx 50 mins drive. We'd happily return!

A fantastic villa in a fantastic country

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week in August. The villa was lovely, clean and spacious. Kids loved the pool and were in it at 7am. The villa had everything we needed and the washing machine came in handy as we went home with a suitcase of clean clothes. The only slight downside was the hill into town. Fine going down but tough working coming up. We would recommend car hire. Sam was great before the stay to give us all of the information we needed and quick to respond to questions. The pool got a bit cold one day but a quick call to the management agency and they sent the pool man around that evening. Much better than a hotel and a real home from home.

Meia Praia
Car: recommended


The beautiful golden sandy beach of Meia Praia is a mere 1.5km away, this vast expanse of sand near wraps itself around one of the biggest bays in Europe. The wide bay offers protection from rough seas, which makes this long beach of soft, white sand particularly popular with families. Meia Praia is dotted with snack bars and restaurants and sports on offer include water skiing, paragliding, sailing and volleyball.


Lagos is situated approximately 70km/50 minutes from Faro Airport. Car hire is recommended.

Further Details:

Lagos Marina is a mere 2 minute drive away and has a supermarket, bars, restaurants, ATMs. The town of Lagos is only a 5 minute drive away and has banks, a daily fresh fish market, artisan shops with pottery and clothing bargains and many small craft shops. The historic old town is steeped in over a thousand years tradition. Jugglers, craft markets and artists are common in the cobbled streets. The pedestrianisation of the town centre has been a major success and the town is very lively in the evenings. With its winding streets, it retains an old world Portuguese charm and relaxing atmosphere. The choice of cafes, restaurants and shopping is excellent. At night, Lagos comes alive with open air stalls and street performers. Lagos is particularly beautiful at Christmas time with twinkling lights on every plam tree and various festivals going on throughout December. There is also a fantastic firework display at midnight on New Years Eve. There is one restaurant which is a 3 mins walk away - Destino on the Jardim da Meia Praia complex.
