“Great Holiday Villa”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

So I have spent so many holidays in the Algarve I have lost count and always in the Lagos / Luz area. This location was the best by far. Why? Well hopefully this will tell you!
Starting with Porto de Mos, it is a well kept civilized area that still attracts locals as well as holiday makers. It has 2 fantastic beach bars that offer a wide range of choice for food and drinks at good prices. It is still only a quick bus or taxi ride to Lagos which offers much of what you should ever desire from a holiday town.
The beach is beautiful with a stunning coast line.
The villa, the good points: It's better than the photos even suggest! It is large, comfortable and well equipped.
The minor negatives points (and they are minor). Two of the ground floor bedrooms are linked, i.e. you must walk through one to get to the other and this bedroom was the only one not equipped with air conditioning. If you have a large group and intend to spend an evening in the sitting room, the seating is only really equipped for 6 people at a squeeze. The only other quirk was the limitation of light bulbs in use, (I noticed a previous review also stated this) which I guess is a subtle way to reduce energy bills!?
Anyhow, don't focus on these points because the good points of the villa outweigh these snags tenfold.
I hope to return to this villa again in the future as it has provided me one of the most enjoyable holidays in a very long time!

“Amazing villa in stunning location”
Reviewed 21 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This villa looks outstanding in the photographs used to advertise it, but please trust me when I say that they really don't do it justice. It is breathtaking. The size of the villa, the quality of the villa, the grounds and the pool are amazing. I stayed with my family, a total of 10 including 2 toddlers. We used the pool everyday
Communication with John Griffiths from my initial query regarding availability of the villa, through to leaving to return home has been easy, friendly, accommodating and timely.
We did not have the use of a car whilst at the villa, but taxis are prompt, very clean and friendly. It is possible to walk to the nearest Intermarche supermarket, but it does involve walking up a fairly steep hill and will take 25 minutes.
On the topic of walking, there is a cliff walk shown from Porto De Mos to Lagos. The path does go very close to the edge in places and does not appear to be overly safe, as is usual with any cliff path. However, this path does not go anywhere now after a section of the cliff collapsed last year. There is no warning that the path has collapsed and you just appear at the top of an extremely high drop, then have to retrace your path.
The beach at Porto De Mos is awesome and during October was never anywhere near crowded. It really is a 2 or 3 minute walk, down a short series of steps and a small incline. We had a 70 year old and a 69 year old in our group, together with the toddlers and they all managed it fairly easily.
We only used the 1 bar/restaurant on the beach to eat at and this was the one on the left as you look down from the villa, called Campimar. The warm welcome, accommodating manner, standard of the food and friendliness of the staff resulted in some or all of our group visiting this bar at least once a day. Two of our group did try the other bar twice, called Antinios, and received a totally unfriendly welcome and were made to feel as though they were unworthy and a nuisance to the staff.
Lagos is a lovely town, again very friendly staff in bars and restaurants, regardless of which ones we visited.
We all had a brilliant time staying at this amazing villa.
