“Very nice well equipped villa with great pool”

We loved our 2 weeks here. Loads of space for our family of 6. Very private villa with a lovely big pool which was great. Bedrooms are spacious and with 3 bathrooms plenty of shower space for 4 girls! We had a hire car and i would recommend one as it's a bit of a trek into town on foot. Well equipped kitchen with everything you need and a great outdoor BBQ to cook on as well. In summary I would highly recommend this villa.

“Perfect”

If you are looking for a family holiday in Portugal, look no further. The Villa is spacious, well maintained, and aswell as being beautifully appointed, is also in the perfect location. Nicely set back with all the other Des Res's, but a short hop to the beach and all the wonderful attractions that Lagos has to offer. Ian and Helen are lovely people, and flawlessly helpful, before, during and after your trip. 5 stars.

We wanted a peaceful and relaxing family holiday with our adult family and Grand daughter. Casa dos Sonhos gave us all of that. All rooms are large and well designed and our master en suite room was like a separate apartment and just great. Beds are so comfortable.You are a bit away from the biz but that is what we wanted and as previous reviews have said you are only 20 mins walk downhill to the Marina and bars with another 10 minutes or so to the centre of Lagos. We had a car and it was better to have it but you don't need it and taxis back from Lagos only 5 minutes and 6 Euro. What a beautiful villa with all that you can ever need for a great relaxing holiday. Cannot say anything negative about the place and Ian & Helen, the owners made everything run smoothly from booking and during our stay. The villa suits a medium to large group and is great value for money given the size and location . Would definitely go back if we can get the family together again at same time!

The Villa was beautiful and the pool was fantastic. We were 2 families with 4 kids and the Villa was plenty big enough for us to have our own space and to also spend time together chilling out by the Pool. We had everything we needed even down to pool toys for the kids and enough beach towels for all of us. The welcome pack of bread, cake, jam, beer and wine etc was very welcome as we didn't arrive till after 9pm and the local supermarket was closed. The owner was great at communicating before our trip and gave lots of good advice re taxis etc. If you wanted you could spend all week relaxing by the pool but we did walk down to the Marina and on to the local beaches (then got a taxi back as it was quite a walk back uphill!) Taxis are cheap and reliable. The surrounding area is nice and quiet and the walk down to the nearest shop is ok to do with kids even though there is no pavement for some of the way. Lagos is a lovely part of Portugal to spend a week or two and I would definitely book this villa again if we were to return

“Fabulous well equipped house with private pool”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Casa dos Sonhos deserves a glowing report. It is a very well equipped house beautifully laid out and very much a home that has been lived in so that there is nothing to want for. The main bedrooms and reception rooms within this single story house wrapped around the pool with big windows over looking the pool, gardens and views beyond. The air conditioning is good throughout , even in the kitchen. The beds mattresses, bedding and towels were all of excellent quality and proper towels rather than a scratchy old flannel size that others try to pass off as bath towels! Likewise so many times you hire a house for 8 and then find that not all of you can lay on a sun lounger, drink for nice glasses or the like simultaneously. This was not the case - even the lounge area had three massive sofas. It really was excellent for this

We eat every meal out on the logia and played many of the games available long into the evenings and very unusually for us we only ate out two evenings -the villa was such a lovely place we were happy to just stay in. We did three days hard core tourism in Lisbon first so this was our crash time, so we made use of the poolside BBQ and a big fridge full of cool beer and wine!

We did have a hire car and were very grateful for it, its a good 25 minute walk for bread in the mornings which we were very enthusiastic for to start with, but soon ended up jumping in the car and on our return trips to the villas up that hill, but you could manage without a car if you are prepared to walk.

I always try and leave a little gift at the house at which we stay, a small something that we think it needs and the best thing we could come up with was a blow up crocodile for the pool - it had everything you can think of from beach towels to champagne flutes ! Our hosts were attentive from afar, leaving delicious home made cake and their own hen's eggs and other goodies as a welcome pack and when we did have a query, came straight back on email to us.

We were with two of our young adult children who happily abandoned us in the bar at in the marina and headed off for a night out in Lagos and found their way home by taxi - eventually!. There are excellent places to eat in Lagos but I would recommend doing your research first to find them if like me you prefer not to have a picture guide for your food ! Again the guest guide in the house pointed us to them. We had a stunning lunch on the cliff tops over the far side of Lagos and then a swim in the cove below popular with the locals.

We were actually very sad to leave and normally after ten days away we are all ready for our own beds, but not this time. We will be back, next time may take aged parents and little grandchildren.
