“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed July 1, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We wanted a quiet, off the beaten track place to chill out and celebrate my birthday, and we found it. The villa is secluded in a lovely well maintained garden, you are not overlooked, and the only noise you hear are the birds, horses nearby and a cockerel who is always on hand to alert you to the time. The villa is a short drive from Lagos and all its amenities, or if you prefer, a taxi will take you there for approx €8-10. Caroline and her team have ensured everything you could possibly need for your stay is on hand. There are a couple of villas next door either side and yes if lots of people are staying then you can hear them, but nothing that spoils your peace. Sun on the pool all day guarantees a comfortable swim/dip.
We will most definitely be staying here again, in fact, sell it to me . Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed

“Peaceful Retreat”
Reviewed September 2, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The villa was absolutely perfect in everyway. You don't usually get home from home but this villa ticked every single box. The decor in the villa was very tasteful, the beds were so comfortable and the swimming pool and surrounding gardens were just splendid. My teenage daughter and her friend summed up the villa as awesome. A perfect place to chill, laugh and basically have a great holiday, which we certainly did.

“Ideal short break summer villa”
Reviewed August 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Clean, well appointed hillside villa in good location tucked away from the bright lights of Lagos (but within easy reach by car, eg supermarket shopping 5 minutes away). Well maintained inside and out, and mod cons much appreciated by myself and 16 year old son- air con, plenty of holiday reading material, wifi, provision of adapters, coolbox, surf boards etc. Our hold luggage took 4 days to reach us because of our airline transfer, this unfortunately coincided with the washing machine going in for repair but that was just one of those things and Caroline had warned us in advance about the washing machine. We really enjoyed long lazy days by the pool, golf and nearby beaches and the villa delivered everything we wanted from a 6 day summer break in the Algarve. Caroline;s restaurant recommendations were also spot on for the occasions we ate out. Absolutely perfect, thank you ever so much, would gladly return

“Fantatic Holiday Base”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Villa Tranquillo in June 2016 and this was our second visit. The villa is set in a very peaceful setting behind private gates, once the gates are closed its a fantastic place to unwind. The grounds and villa are both very well kept with a great barbecue area and a good size pool which a lot of our time was spent in and around. The villa is very well equipped and the perfect size for a small family. Location is good being inland just enough to make it a peaceful retreat and close enough, just 10 minutes from Lagos and some fantastic restaurants. Beaches are also close by nearest being also 10 minutes by car and Burgau just 20mins. We love it there and villa works very well for us and I can honestly say that we will try to get back there again.
