Quinta das Casuarinas has, for over 30 years has been our beautiful, spacious, comfortable first or second home. It has a wonderful feeling of privacy and seclusion, being set in its own grounds of 3 acres. The southerly panoramic views are towards the village of Portelas & Falfeira. The historic old town of Lagos and the sea where there are miles of beautiful sandy beaches, only 2 miles away. Bougainvillea, morning glory, oleander and acacia grow abundantly around the villa. There are many covered, shaded areas for escaping the midday sun - one of which overlooks the huge securable pool terrace - providing seating for supervision of young children and an area for alfresco dining with a BBQ. Looking west there are further covered areas (just outside the 2nd sitting-room ) - a second dining...Quinta das Casuarinas has, for over 30 years has been our beautiful, spacious, comfortable first or second home.

Interaction with guests
Usually our friend, Gabriela, for over 30 years, has visited ALL groups the morning after they arrive, She was able to answer questions of every kind and brought a map to point out things of interest, beaches restaurants etc etc --- she was only a phone call away if you had any queries. However this summer 2019 - her husband is ill and being treated in the UK so she is unable to help us this year --- so I am now on the look out for someone equally reliable --- Ascencao is our wonderful maid - she communicates with us and between us we are able to sort out any problems however small and give any assistance to make your holiday a success.

About the neighbourhood
Lagos(2 miles from the villa) is a beautiful, walled town full of lovely old buildings and is steeped in history. There is a mass of bars, restaurants and interesting little shops. The local produce market offers a huge choice of fish, flowers and fresh fruit, and it is still possible to eat a simple seafood meal with wine for around Euros per head. Surfing: wonderful, sandy, surfing beaches on the West Coast which would remind you of the Cornish north coast with the exception of the weather! Here there is glorious sunshine, cooling breezes and fewer people.On Saturday mornings there is a farmers market where you can buy locally grown produce - some of it organic ( this is by the bus station ).On the first Saturday of the month Lagos holds a large market selling every thing you can imagin....
How to get there
Flights to Faro from pretty much everywhere - and then about one hour drive to Quinta das Casuarinas. I send directions from the airport with the villa keys and other info to help you enjoy your holiday. Some guests choose to fly to Lisbon or Seville - Both fascinating and beautiful, cites well worth a visit. Some guests spend a night or two on their way here . We have parking for several cars and can recommend a local car hire companies. You can collect a car at the airport and follow my directions - or have a car or cars delivered to the villa. There is a train station and a bus station in Lagos. And a bus stop at the bottom of our hill below the villa. Transport companies from Faro airport can also take you directly to our villa.
