About the property

Villa in Atalaia, Lagos, Western Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location. 5 Mins Drive To Beach, 10 Mins To Marina, 5 Mins Drive Into Town

Our beautiful villa comfortably sleeps 6/8 with 3 bedrooms. Lounge has English TV channels, Wii console and Apple TV. Wifi is also included. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom. It has been furnished with a modern look, to a high standard and the ground floor benefits from open plan living. It has its own private, heated pool with outdoor shower room/wc, and landscaped gardens to all sides. The villa is fully enclosed on all sides. There are large, furnished terraces to enjoy the views over Boa Vista's golf course and beyond (we are not part of this development). We have furnished with great care and to a very high standard in all areas. The villa is located in a quiet, residential cul de sac in Atalaia, 5 mins from Porto Do Mos beach and 10 mins from the cosmopolitan Lagos marina. We have also spent time ensuring the outdoor areas are comfortable and enticing. The furnished Gazebo is everybody's favourite place, year round and soft lighting.

About Susan

My husband and I have 3 children and have been visiting Lagos for 12 years. We began by owning an apt on the Marina and spent all of the school holidays in Lagos! We then bought this villa and love the peace and quiet whilst still not being far from the town and beaches. There is so much to do we are still exploring.

Lagos meets all needs, whether young or older! Lots of fabulous beaches nearby, as well as the busy Marina and bustling town of Lagos. A perfect place for a great holiday, which is proven by clients returning to our villa each year!

Susan purchased this villa in 2007

Why Susan chose Lagos

Villa Belle is peaceful and very relaxing. It has all home comforts and we have quite a few clients who rebook each year.

You would not be disappointed wth your choice of holiday home if you chose Villa Belle!

What makes this villa unique

It is in a very peaceful location (no passing traffic as we are in a cul de sac) overlooking Boa Vista Golf Course. You can relax by the pool or in the gazebo (our oasis) but then drive 5 minutes and the amazing, bustling town of Lagos is there for you to enjoy. As are the Marina and Meia Praia beach which goes on for miles - great for a long walk!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to write to say 'thank you'! Your villa is exceptional and we wanted for nothing during our stay. Every care had been taken to ensure we had all we needed for a relaxing holiday in fabulous surroundings and the views are fabulous. I love the fact that we could join the hustle and bustle of the town and marina but retreat back to the villa for some peace and relaxation. The outdoor terraces are large and comfortable but my favourite place, day or night, is the wonderful poolside gazebo. I could sit there all day! Your villa is all you said and the furnishings are beautiful. I will definitely be back next year! Thanks again. K Parker.

Faultless from start to finish. A breathtaking view over Boavista and the monchique mountains. The pool table and table tennis were so much fun, the kitchen was huge, the pool was heated and private, with sun all day long. I would recommend hiring a car, but the intermarche supermarket is walkable (about 25 minutes) and Luz and Lagos are a five minute drive- taxis only €7 from both. The owner was a delight to deal with, we are definitely going back.

Superb five star Villa

  • 5 of 5

There is certainly something special about this property. The attention that has been given to the interior design and outside areas totally enhanced the experience and it was one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had!

The Villa is spotlessly clean. Plenty of hot water and lovely big bath towels provided. There were two of us and the large master ensuite bedroom is on the ground floor, this was ideal as we were able to use the ground and lower ground areas without feeling the villa was too big. We spent most of the time relaxing around the pool area, a lovely secluded sunny spot with plenty of sun loungers, the gazebo is brilliant for shade from the sun. We appreciated the heated pool and liked the outside pool room (shower and toilet) for showering and changing.

The games room, tv, dvd, WI and wifi were appreciated too!

The villa views are very pleasant in a very quiet area, we felt very safe and secure here.

We hope to return soon. Thank you for the care and attention that everyone gives to provide the perfect accommodation.

This is by far the best and most luxurious villa we have ever stayed in. All the bedrooms are spacious, have their own bathrooms, lots of storage space and even have their own balconies where we could sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun set over beautiful scenery.

The living areas are huge and tastefully furnished, with separate areas for dining, watching TV or chilling with a good book. Having said that, our family spent most of our time outside in the gazebo or the heated pool which proved a favourite with our 8 month old granddaughter. I loved the view of the pool with its backdrop of vibrant bougainvillea against a deep blue sky. On the days when we didn't feel like touring, it was a pleasure to just sit and enjoy!

Everyone we had contact with were extremely friendly and helpful, so a big thanks to Sue, Jackie and Corinne for all you did for us. We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful villa in lagos

  • 5 of 5

Can not recommend this villa highly enough. The whole experience from booking and talking to the owner on the phone to arriving was first class.

The quality of the fixture and fittings were better than we could have hoped for and the pictures do not do the property justice. The villa is spacious and the pool/barbecue area are fantastic to relax around. Will be back we hope in 2015.

Fantastic Villa and booking experience

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from a week staying at Villa Belle in Lagos and the Villa lived up to all of our expectations. Corrinne the agent was very welcoming and showed us everything we needed to know, including lots of useful info about the area. It's a bit further out from the centre of Lagos than we expected, not really walking distance (about 45 mins - hour), but it's only a short drive or a 7 Euro taxi (very easy to book) into the centre so it really wasn't a problem.

The Villa has everything you need and was really tidy and well presented on arrival. All the bedrooms are spacious with lots of storage and there are plenty of bathrooms throughout. The living areas are also really comfortable, but to be honest we didn't use them much as the outside space is better than the pictures and really does get the sun all day long. There's table big enough for 8 people to eat around comfortably, a large BBQ area complete with wine fridge and a separate shower & toilet. The pool is great with a shallow and deep end (1.9m) so it has all you need for lounging in the sun.

On the occasions the sun isn't out, there's a TV room complete with WIi console plus the garage has a brand new table tennis table and pool table. We stayed with a group of friends and played golf (some great courses nearby) but would also be perfect for a famliy.

Finally, Sue, the owner, is brilliant and everything was seamless from initial contact, booking through to return of deposit. She was happy to provide lots of information, restaurant recommendations and even extra pictures of the Villa.

Owner's Response: Harry, thanks for posting such a detailed review, it's great to hear the villa lived up to your expectations. The walk to town can be done in 30 mins, I realise you may have walked towards the marina but there is a way in at the top of the town from the villa - I will add this to villa information and when you return you will get to take the shorter route! Thanks for bringing this to my attention - reviews are also helpful to owners! We love the outside space too and although the villa is lovely inside we are drawn to the outside by the gazebo as much as the heated pool. Thank you for your complimentary words regarding my input and also that of my Agent Corinne, which I will pass on to her and her team. We look forward to welcoming you all back again soon. Warmest regards, Sue

Just returned from a 12 night holiday in this superb villa which more than lived up to our expectations. It is beautifully maintained and very well equipped. From the enquiry stage right through to our dealings with the management service on arrival, the level of service was the best we have encountered. The villa is very spacious and accommodated our family group of 4 adults, a 3 year old and a baby very well. We felt were on holiday from the moment we arrived and at times it was hard to drag ourselves away from the beautiful pool area to do some sightseeing!

Owner's Response: Hi Judi, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am really pleased to read all of your family had a wonderful holiday at the villa and I will pass your kind comments on to my Agent, Corinne. We also struggle to leave the pool area and spend a lot of time lazing in the gazebo! It will be my pleasure to welcome you all back again and I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Warmest regards, Sue

There are several beach bars and restaurants to choose from all serving snacks, drinks or delicious meals for lunch or dinner.

Faro Airport is a 50 minute drive from Lagos. Lisbon Airport is approximately 2 hours.


The nearest town is of course Lagos which is a five minute drive. Serra de Monchique is just a 40 minute drive away. Take a drive up into the Monchique mountains and enjoy a meal whilst admiring the breathtaking views.

Further Details:

There are many shops, banks and restaurants in Lagos town. The nearest large supermarket is a 5 minute drive from the villa and is well stocked, including some English brands. Fresh bread and Croissants are available daily. There is a newsagent selling English newspapers and magazines and there is also a florist.

On the Marina there is a number of places to book boat trips, deep-sea fishing and tours of the grottoes that lie beneath the Ponte de Piedade. You can also explore and take one of the "must see" Dolphin trips. If you wish to charter a boat for the morning or a whole day and explore by sea then this can also be booked via the Marina. There is also a very successful PADI diving centre if you wish to explore the seabed and they also run beginner's courses.

If you would like to shop then as well as the town you could visit Portimoa shopping centre (25 mins) which also has a cinema. Guia Shopping centre is a 45 minute drive. Here you will find many shops for men, women and children. There is also an open-plan eating area with many different types of restaurants, along with a cinema and bowling.

There is also a couple of excellent water parks 40 minutes drive away, or there is a daily from the marina, taking you to the park and bringing you home at the end of the day. Zoo Marine is a poplular day out for all the family. It is an entertaining and educational oceanographic facility with all kinds of amusement, bars, restaurants, shops and swimming pool. You can also book to swim with the dolphins!
