About the property

HIGHVIEW VILLA is a charming property located high on a hill just 5 minutes drive outside of Lagos – with stupendous views over the Atlantic ocean to the south and over the Monchique hills to the North. It is a very special place for those looking for a peaceful oasis, appreciating an established garden and being just that little bit away from the rest.

The villa was built to be a comfortable private home. It has 2 generously sized bedrooms and one substantial master bedroom, a dressing room, two bathrooms, a large open plan dining and living room area and a fantastic upstairs mezzanine library/office/reading area with full French windows with a spectacular Atlantic Ocean view. It is suitable equally for families, groups of friends or couples. It also lends itself beautifully to being a centre for small groups (therapy, arts, cookery classes etc).

Peaceful oasis with spectacular views very spacious but maintains homely feel

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome on arrival from Bernadette and Peter.

You very quickly settle in to their well equipped and spacious home. We stayed a few weeks and throughly enjoyed the house and lovely garden.

You have to see to believe the stunning view sunset and sunrise take your breath away.

Very Pleasant House with Sea View

  • 4 of 5

Peter and Bernadette are very friendly and reliable hosts. The house is exactly as shown in the pictures. It was very clean, has a lot space (2 separate bathrooms on each floor) and a big garden. Located on a hill, it has from the upper floor a beautiful view till the sea. The only very small minus for us was that the neighboring house has a pool villa and you hear the people talking.

All local services are within 4 kilometers from the Villa, or just 5 minutes drive away. There is a beautiful view of the ocean from Highview Villa. The sunrise can be spectacular. The Villa is uniquely placed in the countryside but only a short distance from all activities. Whether walking, hiking, bird watching or relaxing in the sun. Monchique Mountains can be seen in the distance, the quaint village of Portelas is only 2 kilometers away and the famous Bensafrim village is only 6 kilometers away, as is the equally famous Lagos Zoo. Highview Villa is set in an ideal location – a place to relax and soak up the sights and sounds of nature.
