“Amazing stay in this tranquil place!”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

After having a booking cancelled 2 months before traveling to Lagos (flights booked etc.) we were lucky enough to contact Caroline (who manages the bookings etc.) about another villa but it wasn't available but she offered us this wonderful place and we are so glad she did! Caroline was absolutely superb from the moment I contacted her and was so professional and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in any of the properties that she looks after.

The villa is in Sargacal which is about a 10 minute drive to Lagos. It is situated up a track road with a few other properties but whilst we had neighbours the villa is completely private so not isolated but as the name says tranquil. The villa is compact but with an excellent layout and suited to a couple or a small family. It has a well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, good shower and internet TV and WiFi were excellent. We were able to bring a USB stick with films and shows which simply plugged into the streaming device and played through the TV. There is also a docking station for your iPhone/iPod which was very welcomed. The owners also provide pool towels which saved a bit of room in the case! The only slight negative I could say is the barbeque, it is one of the traditional Portuguese brick built in types and we couldn't get it to give off enough heat but perhaps there is a knack to it!

Lagos is a lovely town, this is the third year I have visited and would say that the western Algarve is the best part and worth that little extra drive from Faro. There are great places to visit which are close, Luz, Sagres, Aljezur etc. Lagos offers a lovely old town with plenty of things to do with great facilities and great restaurants. You can get a taxi easily from the villa into Lagos for around €9. So if you are thinking of coming to Lagos don't hesitate to book Villa Tranquillo, we will definitely return.

“Wonderful villa”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

A lovely villa, well equipped and well maintained in a good location only a few minutes drive from Lagos, the Marina and beautiful beaches. Stayed for 5 weeks February/March and had amazing weather. The garden is a dream, very pretty and a sun trap all day long too. Can thoroughly recommend this villa for a party of 4 and thank you again Caroline Page for offering this villa to us. Would love to stay there again. The villa lives up to its name - Tranquillo as it was very peaceful and not at all overlooked.

“Amazing really - totally as advertised - great time”
Reviewed 18 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We did a late booking and wanted something in a quite area for a total chill week near to Lagos.

We booked Villa Tranquillo and from the moment of contact Caroline provided excellent customer services. We received the arrival pack and thought the directions to the villa were very detailed, they were required and never missed a turn and found the location within 1 1/2 hours of arriving at Faro.

The villa was delightful, the pictures were exactly what we arrived to. The villa was presented in excellent condition, clean and kitted out with a few basics also. The pool & gardens were again just as portrayed in the pictures. The information provided on arrival has everything including emergency contacts (which we never needed) and restaurants locally and in the town.
As per previous reviews the villa lived up to it's name in that it is so quiet, though some might consider it a bit remote (it was what we wanted) - a car is a necessity and a very easy short drive to the town of Lagos. Lagos itself is, in our opinion, the best town to have a chill-axing holiday - food was great, crowd were really nice and the locals were really hospitable.

If you want somewhere that's quite, private with all the facilities needed then don't think twice - Villa Tranquillo has it all. Caroline's customer service was excellent, the contacts were simple and within hours of departing the communications on deposits etc was completed.
