Villa Caldeira

Hello Tracey and Adrian

Now that my friends and I have returned home safely I just wanted to pass on a huge thank you from all of us for your help in making our stay a great one.  This was the first time any of us had booked a villa privately and so we were quite apprehensive about what we would find "the other end".  You should be commended on your customer service and the way you have handled our booking - whenever there has been an issue with receipts, directions or just the odd silly question from me, you have proven to be great at putting our minds at rest (which my husband has always said is a difficult thing to do!).  Adrian was incredibly welcoming upon our arrival and went out of his way to lead us to the nearest supermarket in quick time so we could grab some tea bags for a proper cuppa! 

The villa itself was outstanding. We couldn't believe our luck as Adrian gave us a tour of the rooms on our first night - the location and size was, in a word, perfect and we've come away having had a true home from home experience. Needless to say we've had discussions again about returning next year and hopefully we'll be able to hire the same villa should it be available.

Apt Margarida

Ssh, don't tell anyone! A fantastic apartment.

This was our second time staying at this apartment and it was just as great as the first time. The balcony gets the sun the whole day so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner outside.

The apartment has got all you need (apart from a dishwasher but we manage!) The wifi is a great bonus. The pool area is well looked after and building well maintained. The complex is in walking distance to the beach and town. The marina is just beautiful, with fabulous places to eat and drink.

Tracey and Adrian at Algarve Estate Management are fantastic, nothing is a problem and they are 'on hand' if you have any questions. They brought us a camp bed at very short notice and even sent back a forgotten bag, a really friendly and professional service. As I said, keep this apartment a secret....it's far too amazing!

Casa Dulcia

Casa Dulcia had everything you needed for a completely stress free holiday.

Very well equipped, clean and well maintained. Enough sun-beds by the pool with sunshine all day. Great location for the lovely beach, the beach bars (lovely views and great food) and also the town and marina (lovely Italian and Chinese restaurant).

We hired a car from the airport for the week. We used the car every day, no problems at all parking right by the beach or near the marina and not far to the local supermarket. We had a great afternoon out kayaking round the coastline and exploring the caves, would thoroughly recommend 'Days of Adventure' for this. Algarve Estate Management were extremely efficient and were very welcoming upon arrival.

Casa Winnie.

The villa itself was fabulous and so well equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly need and more. The Management Team were fabulous from booking to departure and everything went without a hitch. It was central to everything, the shops, the beach, the marina but yet was lovely and peaceful. We had such a relaxing holiday and can't wait to go back.

Apt Margarida

This is a lovely, clean, spacious and well-situated apartment. We have just spent a very pleasant week here.

The apartment is very clean and comfortable. The south-facing balcony is lovely. You can spend all day enjoying the sun and view from there. Alternatively hop into the lift down to the clean well tended pool area for a dip.

The Wi-Fi and excellent TV service was a bonus as my husband was recuperating after an operation and couldn't go into the sun. 

Lagos old town is very charming and only about 15 minutes’ walk away. There is a lovely beach about 20 mins walk away. The marina area is nice and lively. Plenty of great restaurants in all the areas. 

Tracey and Adrian, the managers were super. Always on hand and any problems were dealt with really quickly.  I thoroughly recommend this apartment and Lagos. We will definitely go back.-

Casa Dulcia

Casa Dulcia is very well maintained villa, exceptionally clean and well equipped. The location is ideal, very peaceful and quiet.

We have made approximately 14 visits to Lagos and this was one of the best holidays we've had, well relaxed and stress free, many thanks to Adrian and Tracey who were extremely helpful.

We will definitely visit again.
