“Excellent - Great for families or golf buddies, something for all”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I have stayed at Villa Too 3 times over the past 5 years. Twice with golfing buddies, 8 of us, and once with family and friends. Firstly the villa is very quiet and a great place to really get away, however it is still only 5 minutes to Luz and beaches and is 3 minutes from Boa Vista Golf Club - both require a car or taxi but the local taxis know the villa so getting to and from is no problem.

The villa itself is a great space. You can lock yourself in the master bedroom away from the kids and or late night drinkers who can stay on the main floor. The quality of the furniture, TVs ... is fantastic with each room having it's own color theme which is a nice touch. The black out blinds and lighting is great - the most light switches i have ever seen!

With a large pool, sauna, hot tub, BBQ - there really is something for everyone. Finally and big thank you to the staff, especially Milton, who was always there to help and can't do enough for you. Looking forward to going back next year!

““A taste of luxury for all ages””
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in May 2015

As an avid fan of Portugal, the Algarve and family getaways, my wife and I – along with our four children (all under six) – returned this year for the fourth time.

Casa Too offers a great slice of luxury but still a home from home for the kids to play in.

The villa is very secure and not once did we worry about the safety and security of our children. My wife loves the fact that having holidayed with other families here, Casa Too allows adults to eat, drink and be merry whilst still watching over the kids in the pool.

We have never had any problems with the pool temperature and our kids play in there until the early evening with no complaints.

We always love to go in the May half term due to the perfect weather conditions for the kids. Disappointingly we can’t book for next year as it’s already full but we are looking to try one of the other three villas Casa has on offer.

The Estate Manager Milton and his wife Dora are a great team. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always on hand to help out with anything.

The bedrooms are all spacious and fully equipped and for a huge villa the bedrooms are very close to each other, making it easier if you are travelling with young children. The master suite with a built-in sauna and huge shower offers adults their own haven away from the kids.

I would say a car is a must to explore the local village which is about a five minute drive away. We love going shopping for fresh sea food and local delicacies and use the great BBQ and kitchen facilities for alfresco dining.

Casa Too is the ultimate place to go and relax!

“Great get away for the whole family”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We'd been looking for a getaway that would tick a few boxes for the family - Golf for the boys, r&r for the girls and something to keep the kids entertained - we found the destination so needed to find suitable accommodation for our 2 families and one couple.
Firstly the Villa is a great size with large open plan kitchen/living room and separate dining room. The 5 bedrooms also spacious and all with en suite, one even has a sauna built in! Even though there were 10 of us we never felt like we were in each others way.
The outdoor area comprises of a pool, hot tub and BBQ area and with the acceptable weather in this region most evening were spent outside for either drinks, meals or both......the kids were quite happy they had their own pool and could be in it early evening if they wanted to be!
We found the villa clean and nice little touches you'd expect down to the soap in each bathroom and matching towels depending on which room you're in. It was also good to see a working DVD player on offer as this kept the kids entertained for a couple of evening s (we always take some films for them for some quiet nighs!)
Situated on the top of Monte Funchal you get some great views over Lagos and also being up there it's quiet so you can relax with no unwanted disturbances. The choice is there to venture into any of the nearby towns which are between 5-10 minutes away by car, the local taxi service is also pretty reliable we never had a problem getting picked up or returning home in the evenings if we went out for dinner.
In short we had a great holiday here and will definitely consider here again for this size of group

“Great Villa”

I have stayed at Omont Cristi for 4 years running as part of a group and can not fault either the Villa or the staff. The location is very quiet (you need a car) but the local amenities are good being close to both central Lagos and the beaches of Luz.
The Villa is very well appointed, was spotlessly clean and the staff (all the way from Milton to the gardeners) could not have been more polite or helpful.

““Beautiful spacious villa ideal for families of all ages.””

Better late than never!
I stayed here in June last year with my wife and my grown up son and daughter for one week and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the place.
The décor couldn’t be faulted and the colour scheme was fantastic. Not to mention the spacious bedrooms which each offered something different.
We got a lot of use out of the fantastic swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The superb WiFi was quick and easy to use and the TV boasted a variety of channels both English and Portuguese.
The housekeeping and management were second to none. The staff were extremely friendly and polite and the cleaners made sure no bed was ever unmade and not one speck of dust was left on any surface, leaving the villa absolutely spotless.
We were lucky enough to try many local restaurants, however if you’re not one for meals out, the BBQ is a must. On one night, we sat outside and enjoyed a tasty BBQ while watching the sunset, it was unbelievable!
Located on a private road, the villa is approx. 5 mins drive to Lagos and Praia Da Luz, so I would recommend a car if you want to get around at ease.
I would thoroughly recommend a massage from the spa service, which is located next door in the grounds of Casa Monte Cristo.
I would have no qualms about returning again. In fact, I’m already looking forward to my next stay here!
