About Matthew Young

I'm originally from Hertfordshire in the UK but through my job working in the IT industry I have spent extended periods of time across Europe, until settling in Portugal in 2005. We now live in close proximity to the property, so are on hand for any help or advice our guests require.

Matthew Young purchased this house in 2007

Why Matthew Young chose Sargaçal

As our family increased we soon outgrew the apartment we were living in and found this wonderful 'Quinta' just on the outskirts of Lagos. It needed a lot of work to transform it into the property it is today, but the feeling of calm and peacefulness has always been there.

What makes this house unique

A few hours of relaxation under the two avocado trees shading the main terrace and you will think you are in a different time and era.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much! Our group had an amazing time and your property provided an excellent base for us. It was comfortable, well located, well appointed and a great place to stay. We'd certainly consider it for future holidays and will recommend it to friends and family.

Fletcher party 2013

On arrival, the villa was even more impressive than the pictures, so spacious & tidy with a fully equipped kitchen & lovely heated pool. Every morning we picked oranges from the orchard for freshly squeezed juice, relaxing days by the pool or games in the games room, a 5-min drive to the town or cheap taxi in the evening, barbeques on the terrace. I thoroughly recommend staying in this villa, excellent value for money & we will definitely return.

Taylor party 2013.

I must say that the villa was superb! I was there with my 3 sons and their wives who have between them 5 children, and everyone had a lovely time, the pool and games room being especially big hits!

Brilliant family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family holiday in August. There were 22 of us with ages ranging from 4 to 76 years. The outside space is fantastic and the bar , BBQ and pizza oven were a great hit with everyone. The Quinta is huge and there was plenty of room for everyone.

Superb Farmhouse close to beach and Lagos

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for a large group. The bedrooms are spacious and many have ensuite facilities. The kitchen/dining area is in the centre of the house and make a great place to congregate.

Outside there are plenty of places to sit and the bbq area and outside dining space is perfect to sit around late into the evening. The pool is great and would also be good for families with young children (albeit not gated) as there is a shallow entry point to the pool. There is also a grassy space next to the pool for playing about in.

It is very peaceful as the property is not backed onto or overlooked by any other property. The property is easy to find and very close to great beaches and the centre of Lagos.

All communication with the owner was straight forward and responses to any queries very quick.

If available we will certainly be looking to return for another holiday at this property.

Perfektes Objekt für Teamurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit unserem Team (20 Personen), eine Woche in diesem wundervollen Haus, es ht von der Ausstattung unsere Erwartungen weit übertroffen .

Eine Außenbar mit Gläserspülmaschine und großem Getränkekühlschrank, eine perfekt ausgestattete schicke Küche mit Massen an Besteck, Gläsern und Geschirr, der riesen Garten, die chillige Lounge, dieser Urlaub hätte als Teambuilding nicht besser sein können.

The beach of Meia Praia is a 5 min drive away and stretches for several miles. There are numerous smaller beaches and coves. The area is ideal for surfing.


Faro airport is only 50 min drive. Use of car is recommended as this a rural position but there is a bus stop outside the property and taxis are easily available to and from Lagos.


The property is situated in Sargacal, a traditional farming district of Lagos that is now protected for agriculture and natural beauty.

The historic town of Lagos is just 5 mins drive away offering a host of excellent restaurants, shops, bars and entertainment. The rural town of Odiaxere is also 5 mins drive with restaurants, shops, bars and traditional markets.

This allows our guest to enjoy a private and tranquil experience coupled with the benefits of modern life just a short trip away.

Further Details:

There is an organic vineyard that you can visit and tastings are available by appointment. Golf packages and local walking guides can be provided upon request. The Algarve Autodrome is only 15 min away, with Slide and Splash water park a further 15 mins along the coast.
