The closest beach to the villa is Alvor, with it's two mile long golden sandy beach. Heading west, is the 5 mile long Meia Praia beach which links Alvor and Lagos. Meia Praia has many beach bars dotted along it's length and a host of watersport activities available. Within Lagos itself, there are a further five or six beautiful beaches, all with beach bars offering a wide variety of great food. The west coast of the Algarve is approx 30 minutes drive and offers fantastic surfing conditions.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

Whilst i would love to keep this place a secret, that just wouldn't be fair as the Owner and Heather went out there way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Where to start

Location for me was just perfect, 40- 45 mins from Airport, 10-12 mins from Alvor Beach/Marina and the town centre. 20 Mins from Lagos and surrounding areas.

The Villa sits within the Pennina Golf Resort, so you benefit from a secure and peaceful surrounding, whilst being close to everything.

The Villa itself is very spacious, large grounds with plenty of space so no one felt on top of each other, 5 double bedrooms (3 en suite) and all with individual air conditioning keeping us nice and cool night time.

The kitchen is large and modern, 2 Fridges ( we used one just for drinks) and opens to the pool area and outdoor eating area which is really handy and close to the steps taking you down to the BBQ.

The Villa had good WiFi and Sky TV ( perfect to keep the kids entertained whilst we were getting dinner ready) and a Hi-Fi system for music.(with plenty of tapes and CD's)

Best of all the Villa has everything there you can want for family's, and that makes it the best home away from home we have ever stayed in.

Child Friendly pool - whilst its a large pool, they owners have made (approx 1/3rd ) of the pool length at a depth of 0.75/0.8m this meant our 4 year old (whilst of course always wearing armbands) was able to stand and play and gained real confidence in the water - it also meant the 2 seven year olds were able to play so much easier as they could stand.

The rest of the pool is 1.5m depth so again the adults could stand but had good depth.

There were plenty of sun loungers around the pool and you can position them to get sun from morning till late afternoon and a nice garden furniture around which made it very relaxing whilst we were all around each other and the kids.

There are loads of games and toys for the Adults/Kids.

A little play kitchen and toys for the really small ones, loads of card games, Chess/other board games and a range of books for the adults too, everything was there.

It doesn't stop there, Golf clubs for the golfers, tennis rackets and balls for those who wanted to play tennis in the hotel, Cricket set, Racquet, a football and a range of bikes for those who were interested.

The only thing i will advise, is bring mosquito repellent, there are sliding door fly screens but i got bitten quite a bit ( others didn't).

Owner's Response: Thanks Anthony and Michelle. Yes, indeed, the secret is out. We're delighted that you had a fabulous holiday at Casa Mimosa. This was your first stay and perhaps you will join the group of happy holidaymakers who return to stay year after year. Our pricing policy of per person, per night (cheaper for kids), means that smaller groups or families like yourselves, have the opportunity to appreciate all the space and facilities afforded by such a large villa. I'm so glad you did! Even when filled to capacity, our five bedrooms can easily accommodate ten people, so often our guests are two or even three families holidaying together. It sounds as if you enjoyed all the toys, games, bikes, sports goods and entertainment at the villa. All of these help towards making a great fun time for all. Thank you for taking the time to appreciate all that Casa Mimosa provides! We hope to see you again! Heather
