“Absolutely superb!”

Having stayed at Casa Montaza with a group of friends a few years ago, I knew it would be perfect when I wanted to book a villa holiday with my girlfriends.

Caroline handled my booking and multitude of questions with professionalism and speed (she even replied while on her own holiday!) and is an absolute star! Lisa met us at the villa to show us around and handled any additional queries we had with great speed.

The villa will not disappoint you if you are looking for a luxurious, private and quiet venue and wish to enjoy beautiful views over Lagos.

The private pool is wonderful and you'll never want to stay in a villa without one again! From our sun beds we enjoyed the antics of the Goldfinches, the cheeky Blue Jays, were stunned by the Golden Orioles and admired the thermal soaring of the Storks. And that was only when we were distracted from the stunning views down to the sea.

The villa is very well appointed and we did not need anything more, other than food and wine to sustain us.

There is a well-stocked supermarket (Pingo Doce) just a couple of minutes drive from the villa (try the fresh salmon and prawns and pop them on the BBQ...stunning!). For a wider choice, then drive through Lagos to the Intermarche on the road to Praia de Luz.

Lagos is a lovely old town with lots of winding streets for you to wander and enjoy. There are superb restaurants to enjoy too - we especially liked the Navigador and O'Henriques. The town is reached after an easy 30 minute stroll down the hill, through the Marina and over the walkway bridge if you don't want to drive.

We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday and are already talking about rebooking at Casa Montaza very soon to introduce new friends to the delights of this villa and Lagos.

“A beautiful villa...”

We booked this villa through a recommendation and It did not disappoint! The villa was clean, well equipped, peaceful, relaxing, and beautifully furnished in gorgeous rich fabrics & solid wood furniture. The pool area was perfect for eating out overlooking the most amazing view of the sea and Lagos town. The pool was heated and our little boys loved it! Plenty of sunbeds for a large group and a BBQ area, which was lovely! The beds are so comfy just a shame our little ones didn't do lie ins! ;) Lagos itself was a beautiful town and the marina has some great restaurants! Linda's beach restaurant is definitely worth a visit, good valve for money too, the staff were great with the children and food was delicious! We are definitely going to return to casa Montaza after our wonderful holiday!!!!

This was our second stay at Casa Montaza and certainly won't be our last.
Spectacular views from any of the decks/private patio's, great sized pool with plenty of solid sun loungers.
Inside is spacious, well thought out with lots of little extras to make your stay perfect.
Fantastic kitchen & beautiful lounge/living area.
My husband and I took two of our 'grown up' children and their partners and everyone loved the villa, its location and all it has to offer. We are all used to a high standard of accomodation and Casa Montaza always hits the mark.
It is a lovely 10 minute stroll to the Marina and another 5 mins into the heart of Lagos.
The owner Larry, Lisa and Caroline have always been fantastic and certainly know how to treat clients staying at the villa....a real personal touch and very reassuring.
We would never entertain going anywhere else and will most definitely be back with our family again and again.
