“You won't be disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

I stayed at the Flow House during a recent trip to Spain/Portugal and have to say it was one of the highlights of my trip. The hosts extremely welcoming and the house is spotless. The house is located on a quiet residential street, with nearby grocery stores, ATM and a few small cafes. It has a light, airy atmosphere and the rooms are large. Most importantly, the beds are very comfortable and supplied with a high-quality duvet and clean linens. The bathrooms were clean and well equipped and the common areas both inside and out were extremely relaxing. If Alex recommends a restaurant, take his word for it, he won't steer you wrong. The food I had in the Algarve was the best of my entire trip, I'm planning to be back in the fall for more surfing.

Flowhouse is a spacious, calm villa about 10-15 minutes walk from the centre/old town of Lagos. We stayed in the Amado (en suite double) room which was wonderful: spotless, comfortable and represented excellent value for the price. The owners Alexandre and Maija are also exceptionally hospitable, polite and prompt in communication and full of useful tips and recommendations. Overall an outstanding experience - even more so in the budget/b&b bracket.

This place feels like home, really. Rooms are nice and cosy, and there is a kitchen that guests can use whenever and however they want. If you are concerned about the shared bathrooms don't worry, because they are really cleaned and they get washed every day.
The owners are fantastic and very gentle, definitely follow their suggestions about the places to visit and the restaurants!

Definitely the nicest place we stayed at during our three week trip in Portugal. Absolutely no complaints! Flow house is a spacious, airy villa in a quiet neighbourhood, a pleasant contrast to the noisy back-alleys of Lagos. We got a very nice double room with a huge balcony. It felt cool even on hot days. The breakfasts were good, we liked the coffee!
Fully equipped, modern kitchen was a big plus.
The couple running the house are both friendly and proffessional, they have created a place with a welcoming, unique atmosphere.

Dear Frederik,

thank you so much for your compliments, we really appreciated them. I apologize for the delay in this reply, but it´s been pretty busy over here :))

You were some of our first ever guests, so we have a sentimental attachment to you, and we enjoyed our conversations over dinner we had together.

We have attributed you a GuestAdvisor score of 100% :)))

Maija and I hope that we´ll get to meet you again, who knows, maybe in summer 2013? :))

Best regards for you and your wife,

Alexandre & Maija @ Flow House

This was a great choice! The house is like a dream house with great rooms and facilities, just like in the photos shown here. The area of the house is very safe and quiet. I'll start with the room that has a big bed and a closet - everything very clean & cozy. Maybe we could used a small table. The room had also a great terrace with nice view.
The shared living space was impressive: a fully equipped and spacious kitchen, a dining area, a superb living room downstairs, and a perfect terrace for the morning coffee or breakfast. Upstairs, there was also a relaxation area with TV, a big sofa and a PC with internet. The house has wi-fi, that was great for us and our phones :)
The shared bathrooms were also perfectly clean and nice. The hosts, Alexandre and Maya were really friendly, nice & helpful with everything we needed.
Next time when we'll be in Portugal, we would definitely go back there.

A fabulous place to stay, it was a lovely, clean and impressive guest house with great communal facilities, lovely place to hang out and meet the fellow guests. I really enjoyed my stay here and didn't want to leave. The showers were powerful and hot, bedrooms were clean and nice new linen, the kitchen was well equipped and easy to use and store things. It was really peaceful and relaxing and a great place to stay.

I spent 4 nights at Flow House; I wish I had been able to stay longer- I will definitely return. Alexandre and Maya were fantastic hosts, always available and interested in helping guests to have an enjoyable stay in the Algarves. The house is fantastically clean. The rooms actually look just like the photos- light, airy, and clean. Much of the furnishing is still new. It was a pleasure to get into bed at night with crisp, clean sheets and comfortable beds. The communal kitchen was large and well-equipped, and it and the shared bathrooms were kept immaculately clean. I have traveled extensively, and this is definitely one of the most enjoyable stays I have had.
