About Carlos Capaz

My main work is to make computer programs for textile machinery and knitwear collections, for my family’s company. As a partner, I also own a construction company that builds lovely Portuguese traditional houses, all located in rural villages at 30 minutes from Lisbon.

My wife she loves cats, is fluent in several languages and works as a teacher in a High School. We are a couple in our fifties.

Carlos Capaz purchased this villa in 2008

Why Carlos Capaz chose Foz do Arelho

As Silver Coast is a fantastic region ( that we knew very well), we decided to build there our dream property. After discover the land, we found out the place so charming that we decided immediately to buy it and build there the villa of our dreams. We just wanted the best and we did not spare any efforts to achieve our aims. The result was a fantastic villa and an architectural master piece completely turned to the luxury relax, the sun and the views.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is ideal for families with young children looking for facilities like safety gates, swings, children's slide, swimming pool safety fence and enclosed gardens. Adults have use of 2 gyms, sauna, games room and a 6 hole crazy golf course.

Disable accessible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have rented many villas in Europe but found Casa do Lago certainly met all our holiday criteria

With 6 adults & 5 children to entertain there was never a dull moment with the villa's top notch facilities!

The owners were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them!

A great fortnight and a property I have already recommended to our friends

Colin, Liverpool, July 2010

The pictures of this villa don't even do it justice. The home is amazing, spacious,modern extremely well equipped.

This villa is perfect for groups of adults to young families with children

It was immaculately presented and clean, and the owner is only too happy to make your stay enjoyable.

I would be delighted to recommend this Villa to anyone and would love to go back!

David UK

When booking we were a little nervous, but now comparing prices and quality with other villas we've stayed before, Casa Lago is the cheapest we've ever found!

The villa is a cinema star dream place!!

Ideal family villa!

  • 4 of 5

Situated on a hillside this large spacious villa, had fantastic views, a gorgeous pool and great outside play, entertainment and dining areas. Inside the living/dining room has more than enough room for children to play and families to get together.

Our only slight disappointment was that a couple of the bathrooms were looking rather 'tired'. We mentioned this to Carlos upon our departure and he assured us he'd look into it.

Carlos is delightful and most accommodating. The villa is completely child friendly, this a great family retreat.

Excellent villa for all the family

  • 5 of 5

We all had a fantastic time at the Villa. There were 10 of us in total 8 adults and 2 children and we fitted comfortably in the villa. The heated pool was fantastic as it meant we could go in the pool all day every day. Carlos (the owner) was incredibly helpful and always available when needed. The supermarket was a 10 minute drive and had everything we needed. There were inflatables for the pool at the villa which the little ones were really pleased with. Little ones also loved the fact they could get cbeebies. The pool gate was fab as meant we could keep the children in the shallow end although my 5 year old could stand up in just over half the length of the pool which was great. Amazing views,amazing villa, amazing communication with owner. Thank you Carlos!

Exceptional Villa! Amazing Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a group of friends with 2 young children and we had the most amazing time. The villa is lovely with breathtaking views over the lagoon! The pool is wonderful and it was great that it was heated. The playground was brill for the little ones and the local area was really nice with the local beaches surrounding the lagoon a must see. The best thing for us was how safe and secure the villa was with baby stairgates, pool gates and fencing all around making it so easy for us to relax a little more knowing the kids were contained! Furthermore the cots and highchairs available were not some cheap make do items but instead well equipped and comfortable additions that made our stay more manageable with added comfort. Carlos the owner was also a major plus to staying here and helped us hugely with our stay. From answering every question I had beforehand regarding local supermarkets and transfer ideas, to making our arrival and departure run so smoothly! He was just a phone call or email away if we needed any help with anything as well and he would always reply very quickly. To top it off he provided a more than generous welcome pack that provided us with some essential items to keep us going till we got to the shops and even some luxury items thrown in to give us a warm welcome. The kitchen is so well stocked with everything you need that it really made meal times a breeze when things that you would have within easy reach at home like herbs / cooking utensils / dishwasher tablets / well stocked pantry were already available for you. It was also nice having the choice to wash clothes and the tumble dryer came in handy when drying our wet towels from the pool!

All in all I seriously can't recommend this villa enough! The whole package what with the well thought out and maintained villa to the very helpful owner who will go the extra mile to make sure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as can be! Thank you for having us and will not hesitate to book to visit again!

Stunning holiday house for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Casa lago was everything we wanted it to be. We were a family of 14, 8 adults, 5 children and a baby. The views from all rooms are amazing. The house is extremely well equipped, we wanted for nothing. Even had lots of inflatables for the pool, to which we have added. There are lots of places nearby to eat and plenty of shops, but none within walking distance.

The owner was there to greet us, on arrival, and had provided an extensive welcome pack of food. Which we uch appreciated. We did have one or two problems in the house, but Carlos responded by return and sorted the problem out immediately.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this property. None of us wanted to leave!
