The Good: Staff at algarve accommodation agency were very helpful. spacious bedrooms and wardrobes, generous bathrooms, AC, WiFi, ping pong, and kitchen utensils. Pool size is ideal for small families and toddlers pool is ideal for under 2s. Near to both Camilo beach, Ponta de Piedade, and about 2 km from Dona Ana beach and town centre. Cant fault location in Lagos esp if you have a car or don’t mind leisurely walks.
Could be better: pool heating took a whole 2 days, could have been done before our arrival. A vacuum cleaner would help a lot more than a dust pan. Basic toiletries could be better but it’s sold as self catering..so a trip to supermarket is worth doing before arriving.
We stayed here in October 2017. From start to finish the Algarve Accommodation Company were fantastic. Answered all sort of questions within 24 hours and being English speaking helped when understanding directions.
The accommodation it’s self is wonderful. It was spotless, spacious and welcoming. 4 large double rooms and 2 twin rooms. It’s set within a quiet area with a few other villas but you are not overlooked. A few shops and restaurants just 10 minuets walk away. Beaches were also around 10 minutes and were great for families.
We spent the day at a water park which was arranged through the company, nothing was too much trouble. The gas ran out half way through our stay and someone come straight away to change it over.
The pool is huge and for a few extra pounds I would recommend it being heated.
Over all the villa and company were fantastic I couldn’t recommend them enough.
Many thanks for the best holiday
We actually hadn't booked this villa for our holiday, but the day before we were due to fly, we were notified that the villa we had booked had flooded! Panic time!!!! However the agency were great and we agreed to use Villa Farol - which turned out to be lovely.
The villa was lovely and spacious, and the pool a great hit.
I would definitely return to use this villa once again.
Just returned from a fabulous 2 week family holiday in Casa Farol. The company were really great to deal with and I cannot say enough positive things about the villa! It was clean and spacious and decorated lovely. It comfortably accommodated 7 adults and an 8 month old baby. The baby pool was heated and a baby bundle of cot, highchair and bath was provided. The pool area was beautiful. The ping pong table provided great entertainment and my dad loved using the large bbq cooking fresh fish from the fish market in town. The area was quiet and residential. The stunning beach Praia do Camilo only minutes away. The gorgeous old town of Lagos a leisurely 15 minutes walk away. Highly recommend Casa Farol and the Algarve Accommodation Agency for their great service.
A lovely spacious villa, perfect for a family holiday. The villa is located in a very peaceful area and is very well equipped. We had a great time staying here and would return. Great service from Algarve Accomodation.
Have just returned from 2 weeks at Casa Farol. Villa is beautiful and in a peaceful location. Booked with Algarve Accomodation Agency and the service was 5*. Villa is 20 minute walk to centre of Lagos where there are many places to eat. Very busy so once you get to know the area it is always a good idea to see if you can get a reservation. We loved Marios italian on the decking on the seafront and would highly recommend a visit. Could not fault the villa and would visit again.
The only thing we would change would be to add a walk in shower for our aging mother who could not climb in the bath to make use of the shower facilities on her own. That being said the downstairs double room was a palace for her. It provided very easy pool access and allowed Mum to cool off yet still see what was happening around the pool. The rest of the rooms had aircon and the 3 bathrooms and downstairs loo were more than adequate.
The villa did not disappoint and we thoroughly enjoyed our week in the Algarve. Lagos is a lovely town and not too touristy or big. We visited town many times, for food (Bora was excellent) and to get a feel of the real Portugal in the market and surrounding streets. We also visited the local eateries and were not only happy with the quality but the pricing was very sensible for lovely fresh seafood.
Overall it gave us what we wanted apart from a shower!
