“A little piece of paradise!”

Our group, ranging from 1 year old to over 60, travelled here very easily from Faro. The villa lived up to all our expectation and then some!

Bedrooms are poolside and had very comfortable beds and air con in each room. Family bathroom was here as was en suite. Great to have a bath and hair dryer etc.

Upstairs was the very large open plan kitchen, lounge and diner, which lacked for nothing! It was a nice touch for Sieste the owner to stock the fridge with soft drink, bread rolls, cheese and ham. The room upstairs opened out onto a huge balcony with a perfect sea and beach view, and also had a brilliant sun shade umbrella. We ate all our meals on the balcony, which also had handy access via an outside staircase down to poolside. (We had to be super vigilant with a 1 year old walking around upstairs, due to the open nature of the staircase etc)

Off the lounge was a smaller TV room also with air con, that we used as an additional bedroom with sofa bed. This had its own bathroom, and there was an additional toilet upstairs too.

There were enough sun loungers for everyone poolside, with parasols, side tables and pool inflatables; and we had an almost hidden and private un heated infinity pool to while away our days.

The wonderful beach was a five minute walk down the steps and through the car park, and was never crowded, a good breeze on the beach too. The tide was tiny which was perfect for swimming, especially for little ones, however it was FREEZING! We booked half a day kayak trip from the beach which was amazing and at 25 euros an absolute bargain! Definitely do this on your stay!

We had a hire car so the supermarket wasn't a problem. I guess you could use a taxi otherwise. It was five minutes away and stocked everything you would want.

The maid came half way through to change our towels and clean the bathrooms.

Lagos was ten minutes drive and compared to Porto de mos was a bustling city! All the big boat trips go from here and there are loads of restaurants.

To sum up, we had an incredible holiday. The weather was boiling, the villa perfect, the sea and beach beautiful, and Porto de mos was quiet and calm. It was worth every penny/euro and we would come again. Many thanks to Sieste for his diligent service!

Even better if:
The pool could be covered to keep the heat in or be heated

“Location Location Location!!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I have visited Porto de Mos with my family for the past few years and every year as we have walked up the hill from the beach I have coveted this particular villa with its unrivalled location and infinity pool overlooking the sea. This year at last we managed to book it and it certainly didn't disappoint in fact if anything the photos don't do it justice. The views of the ocean are endless from practically every room. The villa itself is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is worth mentioning that the satellite TV is Dutch so no sky sports (much to my teenage son’s disappointment) but there is wi fi so he wasn't completely lost. From my point of view, unlike most villas we have stayed in, there is a lovely maid who visits twice a week so I didn't feel the need to constantly clean bathrooms and wash floors! I could relax and enjoy the holiday with the rest of my family.
It is literally a two minute walk down to the sandy beach which has 2 restaurants if you don't feel like cooking or taking a trip to Lagos. Best of all (as anyone who has stayed in Porto de Mos before will understand) when you walk back up the steep steps from the beach once you reach the top you are home - no more hill climbing!!
Both the owner and his local representative were very friendly, efficient and helpful. I would highly recommend this villa and hope to be back ourselves next year.
