Wonderful family villa in clean modern complex
We booked for 8 days and found the booking experience with David simple, easy and extremely informative once confirmed. The villa is on a small complex overlooking an attractive golf course which houses more villas. There are a number of small local restaurants and a super market within sort of walking distance. You are however, close to Sagres and Lagos which has a number of really nice restaurants. The villa is modern clean and spacious. It has a medium sized very deep swimming pool which has a number of beds. The area did not become over crowded even in the height of season when we arrived. The garden area is immaculate and tended daily. There are also lovely beaches near by Salema is really worth visiting and is a ten minute drive. We loved the villa and it accommodated six of us easily- recommended
A great place to stay
We are a family with two teenage boys and have stayed at this property twice in the last two years. Its clean, spacious and very well equipped with everything you’ll need to enjoy your stay. The property is situated within a courtyard with easy access to a communal pool and sun loungers. The QdEV Villa area is maintained to a high standard with groundsmen and cleaning staff routinely working to keep it looking its best.
There is a baker located a short walk away, along with a nice restaurant called O’Tiago’s. Many other nice restaurants are a short drive away, along with some lovely beaches we like to visit. Some of our favourites include Salema, Burgau and Zavial, but there are many others to choose from within a short drive. The local supermarket (Intermarche) is conveniently located 5 mins away by car, or 15 mins on foot. This can get quite busy, so another option is Lidl which is located 10 mins further West at Vila do Bispo.
We’ve always enjoyed good Owner communication throughout the booking process with quick responses and obliging flexibility. Visiting this property is home from home, very relaxing, very enjoyable and highly recommended.

With its maze of cobbled streets bustling with pavement restaurants, and busy cafe bars, Lagos is a vibrant centre full of life, and only 16kms away.

Right out to the west is the port of Sagres and the spectacular headland of Cape St Vincent, the most south-westerly point in continental Europe.
