steven shirley purchased this villa in 2001

Why steven shirley chose Lagos

I purchased this particular villa having spent months looking for the right villa in the right location. The villa is at the top of a quiet rural cul-de-sac with fabulous sea views, from the upper level sea views as far away as Portimao. There is a lovely garden, heated pool, air-conditioning, so important at the height of the summer. The location is really close to the fabulous Porto de mos sandy beach and equally close to the marina and Lagos old town.

What makes this villa unique

I firmly believe in offering quality with no hidden extras. wireless internet access. free full TV package. Heated freshwater pool. Air-conditioning. Poolside inflatables. Outdoor table tennis. large stainless steel Gas barbecue and equipment are all supplied free of charge with absolutely no additional cost, a full and comprehensive welcome pack fruit drinks bread tea coffee are also included. And a free dolphin trip and meal ( starter and main course excludes drinks ) at our restaurant during your stay with us

Unforgettable memories

  • 5 of 5

I am so satisfied to choose this villa! First of all it is very big but cozy very clean and spacious place. Perfect for the big families (but not just). Swimming pool, little garden and the view for the ocean make this place even more beautiful. The location of this place (a little hill), make the sun stay all day there. Modern and fresh desing of the villa made our stay pleasent. Second of all the owner Steeve, is very helpful and professional. If we had some questions or problems he didnt hesitate to help us. Really appreciate the welcome starters, which are: local wines, nuts, fruits etc., looked gorgeous on the garden table. We spent there two weeks and we loved it! Completely recommended.

Brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic week at this lovely villa which is of the highest quality as is the owners attention to detail. We were met with a welcome meal and given a quick tour of the town and its beaches. We enjoyed a free meal at he excellent Orangery restaurant and a superb kayak trip again FOC with his company days of adventure. We managed without a car but the old town and new marina are a good walk and usually a taxi back. Beautiful town and beaches great villa and excellent service. Recommended!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Ive known steve for a very long time as friends & worked for him in the uk on his other business adventures, he is methodical & pays attention to detail, which is clearly evident in this villa he owns in the Algarve , everything about this place has steves name on it & is top of the list in my eyes, he has a complete eye for detail & makes sure you are totally happy in everything he has done, I can say no more regarding the villa apart from this is the Hilton of villas, his other business the restaurant & days of adventure are the same everything geared to the satisfaction of his guests, I wish him continued success in Portugal & look forward to meeting up with him his lovely partner & zuka .Many thanks steve for making our stay all the better & see you again soon. kev & joan

amazing location and even better villa

  • 5 of 5

This place is the best place I've stopped at bar far. I've stopped in many villas but this has topped it all. There was 4 adults and two small children and the room was well enough! We will be back next year with an xtra four! Having small children it was important to us that we where somewhere that was a little quieter and this was perfect. The beach is close by and the city centre a 30 mins stroll away. The owner is great and glady assisted us with booking airport transfers. The Dolphin trip was amazing and enjoyed by all. The villa was well equipped and was a high chair and travel cot too.

Thanks again Steve.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from another amazing stay at this villa.

This is the fourth time we have stayed and would return time and time again.

The villa has everything you could possibly need, the owner is fantastic providing a very generous welcome including wine, fruit, bread milk and all the essentials to get your holiday off to a great start, something which is not provided in most villas!

The owner also offers generous discounts on his restaurant The Orangery and Days of Adventure Dolphin Trip, both of which are brilliant.

I would thoroughly recommend this property!! Great villa in a great spot.

Location

From the Owner

I purchased this particular villa having spent months looking for the right villa in the right location. The villa is at the top of a quiet rural cul-de-sac with fabulous sea views, from the upper level sea views as far away as Portimao. There is a lovely garden, heated pool, air-conditioning, so important at the height of the summer. The location is really close to the fabulous Porto de mos sandy beach and equally close to the marina and Lagos old town.

The nearest international airport is Faro (about 85km away). The Lisbon airport is about 300km away. Car hire is recommended. The A22 motorway travels the length of the Algarve and the villa is about 7km of the motorway, exit at junction 1.

Distances:

Only 2km away lies the old and picturesque city centre of Lagos with its fishing harbour and marina, cobbled sidewalks and colourful market square, offering a larger variety of restaurants, bars, cafés, shopping and markets.

Lagos has 2 daily fresh food markets (fish, meat, vegetables and fruit), 4 main supermarkets and plenty of interesting shops and restaurants.

The owner has a self contained apartment on the site that is separate from the main villa with a private entrance, it will not be let out during your stay, though the owner reserves the right to use the apartment whilst in lagos on business, this does not affect your privacy and you retain personal and private use of the gardens and pool etc. (apartment entered via seperate entrance)Lagos 2km away has 2 daily fresh food markets (fish, meat, vegetables and fruit), 4 main supermarkets and plenty of interesting shops and restaurants.

To the west of Lagos the once-upon-a-time fishing village of Praia da Luz is now devoted to the quieter side of the tourist trade and is the home of many residents from the colder northern climates. Further to the west is another small fishermen's beach village of Burgau. Moving even further west is the coastal village of Salema. Here will be found some small Roman ruins proving the existence of its past importance. To the north of Lagos on the road to Lisbon is the small town country town of Aljezur with some fine nearby west coast beaches. Originally a hamlet, the Moors constructed a castle in the 10th Century whose ruin still stands today overlooking this town. The old port of Sagres and the ancient school of Henry the Navigator near Cabo São Vincente are about 30km away and Silves castle (the best preserved and largest castle in the Algarve) is about 35km away.
