Guestbook comments from the owner

P.M. (Kenilworth) - July 2013

Just a quick note to let you know we had a fantastic time at the end of July in your villa at Boavista. The villa and associated facilities of Boavista were absolutely excellent and delivered against all our criteria for a great holiday.



J.S. (Edgware) - August 2013

Absolutely lovely. Villa contained everything one really required. Neat, clean and sizeable. Well done!



D.L. (Aberystwyth) - November 2013

Having a great stay at your villa which is so well kitted out. Our friends who have been out loved it all and my wife has even joined the aquarobics class in the health spa.

The resort is an easy, 60 minute drive from Faro airport and about 3 hours from both Lisbon and Seville. Car hire is essential.

Further Details:

A vacation in the Western Algarve would be incomplete without taking in the sights, restaurants and ambiance provided by the city of Lagos.

This ancient city is just 5 minutes by car from the villa. Not only does it contain the essential amenities of a modern city such as supermarkets, restaurants, shopping, doctors, etc., but it also blends these amenities in with its historical sites.

Its origins date as far back as 2000 years BC, since when it has had connections with the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Romans and the Moors. During the 15th century, it was the base for the 'Voyages of the Discoveries' instigated by Henry the Navigator when trade between Africa and Portugal brought a great deal of wealth into the town.

The old city, surrounded by its ancient walls, is ideal for an evening's stroll and inside the villa there are maps showing the sights to be seen and a selection of restaurants to be visited.

A wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is very luxurious and the resort provides a peaceful base whilst being within easy reach of Lagos and other attractions. The villa (and resort) were exceptionally well maintained and spotlessly clean. The owner has paid much attention to detail and all eventualities were catered for. There was lots of very detailed information about the local area. The facilities in the resort are excellent and we made use of both the indoor and outdoor pool and also the gym. Outside of the resort I can recommend the sea kayak tours in Lagos and nature boat tours from Faro. The best thing about this holiday was being able to enjoy lots of activities and exploration whilst being able to come back to a beautiful, peaceful villa to relax.

Lovely, relaxing, modern

  • 5 of 5

I had a very relaxing stay here. There was tons of info at the villa/apartment left by the owner - restaurant recommendations, supermarket locations, places to visit so I could relax knowing I had all this info to hand. The villa is clean, spacious and modern .

Great, clean and nearby gym and indoor and outdoor pools, spa etc. It was lovely and quiet and relaxing.

Golfing break par excellence

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculately clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The welcome guide provided is very comprehensive covering TV channels, local restaurants and how to work the various appliances. This was our 2nd year and we will be going again!

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful holiday. The villa was gorgeous, had everything you need for a lovely holiday. The location was superb especially if you golf. Nothing better than watching players tee off on the first tee while eating breakfast. The club house food was excellent and staff could not do enough for you. Highly recommend this villa.

Julie, Dougie Gibbons
