“Relaxing family holiday”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We are back home (and normality) after spending a wonderful holiday in Casa Clara.
You have a beautiful apartment in a stunning location and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there.
The garden and pool were perfect for the boys to play in – safe and clean and very well maintained. We loved the apartment and found it hard to leave yesterday! We found the people staying there so friendly and there were little packs of food and wine left for us when families were leaving. A nice surprise when we opened the shutters!!
The property managers (Doreen and Fred) were very helpful – there to greet us and it was great to have them to help out.
The weather was brilliant for the 2 weeks and we got to have a look around – Alvor, Praia de Luz, shopping in Lagos, all the local beaches and cliffs and of course the obligatory trip to Zoo Marine. But most days we were happy to stay at the apartment and enjoy the pool and gardens and didn’t go anywhere.
We couldn’t have had a better holiday and will most definitely return. The only down side of our holiday was having to come home.

Thank you for renting out your apartment. We did have a fantastic time and look forward to going back again.

“Comfortable”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The apartment is clean and comfortable, with all utensils you may need for daily life. If you like walking, there is no problem walking to the supermarket (25 min) or downtown (40-45). The area is part of a very big tourist apartment complex and the close surroundings are not very charming, apart from a nice beach. Very empty in February.

I can imagine that a visit in February rather than April through to October does make the environment less than charming - Bolton is not so wonderful then either! However, all guests who have stayed in the warmer, sunnier months have found the gardens and the small size of the apartment building to be quite charming. We have high standards ourselves and find sitting in the sub tropical garden quite delightful. As mentioned in the advertisement for Casa Clara you really do need a car for trips to the supermarket and Lagos town but the beach is a short walk away. I think we will not let the apartment again in the winter months - it's not ideal holiday time and the low rent hardly covers the cost of laundary and cleaning.

“2nd visit, perfect again”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My partner, 2 children (16 and 12) and I stayed here for Oct half term. It was our second visit and we loved it just as much as the first time.
We arrived about midnight and were met by Doreen with a smile and much enthusiasm, even though it was pouring with rain and so late at night.
As before, everything about staying here is effortless, from booking through to leaving. It's a perfect location, beautiful apartment and surroundings, 10 min walk to the beach and 5 min drive to Lagos and the Intermarche.
We had another week of perfect weather, warm and sunny, only one slightly overcast day. What a lovely way to spend half term !
Can't wait to return.

“Our 3rd Visit !!”

person found this review helpful

This is our third holiday staying at Casa Clara, again we had a great time. The apartment as usual was spotlessly clean on arrival and I really cannot praise this apartment enough. Booking was effortless, we were met on arrival and given keys and instructions that if anything was needed just to ring and Doreen (the lady who looks after the apartment) would be straight round as she only lived a couple of minutes away. We really cant imagine staying anywhere else, we will be back again next year for our fourth visit!!
