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!!

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!

A beautiful house with a spectaculair view and very short drive to the laguna beach. Our party consisted of five kids ranging from 1-7 and they lovend the playground, pool and beach. We loved the fence around the pool as peace of mind. We had a few small issues with the house, but immediately after contacting Carlos, these were fixed. Regards,

Great villa with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We (6 adults and 4 small kids) stayed at Casa do Lago for 2 weeks. And we loved everything: the villa, the large bedrooms, the pool (area), the kids playground and of course the stunning view at the Laguna do Obidos. The children loved the pool and stayed in there for hours all because the water temperature is so good (31º+). When the children were in bed we spend the evenings around the BBQ to prepare our meals and to sit around the fire with a good glass of (local!!) wine. And if you have a question then Carlos will respond immediate. All and all we had a great holiday at a wonderful villa.

Superb modern villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Walking group of 8 adults. Oct 2015. The group have hired many villas over the past 20 years and this is probably the best of them all. The villa has panoramic views and a 15m swimming pool heated to at least 29C. The facilities were complete as described, with ample hot water available at all times, a kitchen which was well equipped for group catering and a BBQ outside which worked well. The owner quickly sorted an internet reception problem and other minor issues which occurred during our stay. There are a number of shady areas in the garden but we would suggest that more shade could be provided near the pool. Finally may we thank Carlos for his attention and consideration during our stay. Jack and Mary and the entire group

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.
