About Beverley Curtis

Stuart & Beverley Curtis of Chapel House Farm, Marple Cheshire, England. Company Directors & owners of a National large Air conditioning company. Stuart enjoys golf whilst my (Beverley) passion is horses and dogs. We have two Sons, one married with 5 children and one who still lives at home with us, our two dogs, 4 horses and the ducks (Mr & Mrs Puddleduck otherwise known as George & Gertie)

Beverley Curtis purchased this villa in 2007

Why Beverley Curtis chose Porto de Mós

Having scoured Portugal we decided on this Villa as we wanted somewhere close enough to all amenities but also quiet and secluded for some peace and quiet. We wanted to be close to the beach as we enjoy leisurely walks on the sea front and dining watching the sea in the evening

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is very modern with all the creature comforts one needs. We chose the most private Villa on the complex as we prefer not to be overlooked whilst relaxing or dining by the pool. It's lovely to walk down to the beach in the evening and dine whilst watching the sea, and we don't have to bother with taxi's just because we've had a drink. Stuart is a keen golfer so with a course almost on our doorstep it's very convenient. There is so much to do in the Algarve, for kids or adults, all round we decided it was the perfect place and it's proved to be just that

Great Villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is really easy to find which when driving with a two year old is a godsend. We arrived to wine, bread, ham and cheese. A lovely touch.

Really spacious, with all the upstairs room en suite. It was great to have a downstairs bedroom also with elderly guests with us, they definitely appreciated it.

Pool was good size and cleaned twice during or stay. Great outdoor space with manicured gardens and space for the toddler to run around in.

Five minutes walk to the beach with two nice restaurants. Campimar was our favourite with fresh seafood and friendly staff.

All in all a great stay and we'll be making enquireies about next year again.

Lovely holiday in spacious villa

  • 4 of 5

Great villa for 8 Poeple , plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 teenagers . Outdoor space was perfect and villa was well equipped and very clean . Great location and local beach very easy to get to on foot , we hired a car so we could visit all the lovely beaches . loved Lagos , great restaurants and bars and very laid back. Only criticism would be that outdoor furniture ( chairs ) need upgrading as very uncomfortable and not high enough to eat at table . Also didn't feel very welcome reading all the fines on the fridge for not clearing up house before leaving or leaving lights on . We left the house very clean and got our full deposit back. Over all a fantastic holiday , thank you

Perfect family villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfect for a family break! All the bedrooms are a great size, the pool was brilliant (we paid to have it heated and the temperature was perfect) and the manager was so helpful. I would say you definitely need a car, and Lagos is just a 5 mins drive away. Thank-you Mieke for taking such good care of us. We'll definitely be coming back.

Lovely spacious villa , the patio and pool area enjoyed by all... the children particularly

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the area very much. A lovely area for families. Nice beach side location. Our Villa was lovely in a nice quiet area, and very private.

The Campimar beach restaurant was particularly nice, good food and beautiful terrace with lovely sea view.

Lagos has some lovely old narrow streets and good restaurants, in particular Casa Do Prego fabulous tapas and great main meals. The ambience really nice and staff very cheerful and helpful. Small children made welcome, with their own menu to choose from.

A week was not long enough and we would definitely return for longer.

A lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Great holiday but confirm you do need a car. The two local restaurants are within an easy walk down but quite a steep hill back. Shops are a trek. With a car a few mins. We only hired on arrival after quickly realising we needed and possibly paid a higher price. Pool heating was a bonus. Made all the difference. Villa is of a good size and well laid out. The area is nice . There is a fair amount of local construction but sufficiently away not to disturb. I think the local area could benefit from at least a convenience store. Lagos is a lovely resort. 5 mins in a car. Take the direct route straight over the roundabout at the bottom of the main road to the villa over a set of traffic lights and another roundabout and a multi storey left at the next roundabout and then just a few mins to numerous restaurants. Overall a lovely holiday.

Local manager a gem and would recommend transfers through her.

Wonderful Holiday in Super Setting

  • 5 of 5

There was a degree of trepidation when booking a holiday via Owners Direct costing this much when there has been so much bad press of late. We did it and I am pleased to report that we had a wonderful time here. The location is perfect but you do need a car as the shops are certainly not within walking distance particularly in the heat that we had. The owners will recommend a car hire company and also a very good executive taxi service both of which we used. The place was spotless and well described with a super pool which was attended to on a regular basis and left in pristine condition. The beds were extremely comfortable and all the more so given the efficient aircon throughout the place. This is a holiday let - surrounded by holiday lets and the local manager who was very efficient and helpful mananages several properties around the area. I would highly recommend this property and my only criticism would be the booking process which could be slicker and I feel would benefit from being handed over to the local manager as after all it is a business not someone's home that they let out for the odd week.

A great holiday and if you go I am sure you will enjoy it.

The beach is only a 5 minute walk from the villa and known as one of the best beaches in the Algarve. You can hire Parasols and sunbeds. Porto Mos beach is the height of activity with various water sports including scuba diving, jet skis, and other sports. Beach restaurants serving local and international cuisine are a must to visit. Nearby Meia Praia beach provides over 5km of lovely sandy beach with even more sporting activities going on.


Faro international airport is only 80km away which is only 45 minutes. There are many car rental firms at the airport to choose from. A new bus service means there are buses every 20 minutes. The local train station is at the back of the marina and only 2km drive and which services the whole Algarve and Portugal. Taxis are abundant but airport transfers should be booked in advance. Motorway links are just 1km from the villa.


The beach is around 500 metres and there are two restaurants directly adjacent to the beach. The supermarket and private hospital 1km. Centre of Lagos 2km. Formula 1 race track 15 mins. Portimao 20 mins which includes the cruise liner terminal and World Beach Soccer. Slide and Splash 20 mins.

Further Details:

Lagos town centre is steeped in history and the old castle walls are still standing and evidence the historic slave trade market. Lagos is the third largest town in the Algarve and offers all the trappings you'd expect from a thriving tourist area including cafe bars, restaurants, museums, shopping etc. And for those who like the night life the bars are open until the small hours of the morning. For those who enjoy their food the restaurants serve superb local dishes and international cuisine and there is a sense of honour amongst the restaurants to serve the finest dishes. The towns new marina shows how the town has encouraged development in modern times and, with the new frontage around the castle walls and underground car park, it shows the towns commitment to the tourist. The main parts of the town have not lost their tradition and the cobbled streets are lined with designer shops. There are plenty of activities whatever your pleasure; Dolphin watching, fishing, cycling, surfing, scuba diving, horse riding, mountain biking, walking, tennis, golf, football, water skiing, water theme parks (3), bird watching, swimming, bowling, cinemas, paragliding, helicopter rides, deep sea fishing, quad biking, tennis, wind carting, kite flying, boat rides and much much more. Lagos isn't far away from Sagres, which is also steeped in history as Christopher Columbus named it, ‘The end of the world’. At the close by Boavista Championship course golf resort, and Parque de Floresta nearby, there is a superb football school run by ex professional footballer Mark McCarrick.
