The perfect place for us
We prefer to stay in a quiet place, preferably near to but not in a town. This property is ideal, it sits in a beautiful acreage with a footpath which leads up to the epic coastal cliff top walks. You can easily walk into Lagos on this path and in the opposite direction to Luz. The house itself is rustic and relaxed with a wood fire that made the living room feel very cozy. Iryna who manages the larger properties could not have been more friendly or helpful. She was a fund of advice and recommendations. The house is proximit to some good restaurants which are nearby and handy, plus several supermarkets are equally close. We loved it and are already talking about visit again. February on the Algarve weatherwise is a vast improvement over the UK, and Vila Pocilgo is a fabulous place to enjoy that, with stunning views from the patio. Thank you Ana Maria and Iryna.
A wonderful quiet tranquile villa with stunning views of farmland and the sea.
One of the best holiday villas we have stayed at. Ideal for a couple who want a complete rest. Easy access to the coastal cliff path with views and walks to the west and east.. The garden and the veranda points south so wonderful for outdoor eating.
Thank you Ian and Jill for your encouraging comments!
We are very happy to see how much you enjoyed your stay at Vila Pocilgo and look forward to your next visit!
Tranquil property away from it all
Very peaceful location for visitors wanting restful vacation accommodation. We enjoyed lazy meals on the patio overlooking the lovely garden, many opportunities to see hoopoes and azure-winged magpies, cliff-tops walks to the nearest beaches, swims in the pool, and visits from Bruno the dog.
Easy access to a supermarket and straightforward access to the A22 and N125. The kitchen is basic but adequate for simple meals.
Amazing location with the best view in Lagos.
Its an amazing place. we spent 5 months in the villa and it was our best months ever spent on vacation. the location is beautiful, with a lot of green and very close to the cliffs. Luz and Lagos beaches are a quick walk away. further more, the owners are amazing; super friendly and helpful (the invited us to have Christmas with them!!!). We will be back for sure. Thank you so much for the lovely time and see you soon.
Excellent place for a quiet break but still close to amenities.
Although we were unlucky with the weather (we weren’t really expecting much dark cloud and rain in May) we had a really good holiday and that was largely thanks to Villa Pocilgo. Situated about a mile off made roads along a track (don’t go in a low slung sports car), it is in a wonderful quiet position with a large idyllic garden and a wonderful sea view. It was difficult to believe we were only a 10 minute drive away from the popular resort of Lagos.
The property is equipped with all the essentials (including wifi) and the resident caretakers on site were very helpful. Sadly, because of the weather we only used the outdoor furniture on a couple of 2 days and the barbecue will have to wait for our second visit. We really appreciated the direct access to the coastal path and being able to walk one way along the cliffs to Mos or the other way to Luz. Both have lovely beaches and good restaurants.
All in all this is a great place for a relaxing break, and we would love to return one day.
We are looking forward to your return, Neil, and hoping the usually much kinder May weather will bid you a warm welcome then! Many thanks for your comments!
Wunderschönes einfaches Häuschen
Wunderschönes einfaches Häuschen in liebevoll angelegter Gartenlandschaft auf weitläufigen Grundstück mit direktem Zugang zur Steilküste. Wir haben uns in der etwas abgelegen Unterkunft sehr wohl gefühlt und haben insbesondere die sonnige Terasse und das gesamte Ambiente genossen. Die auf dem Grundstück lebenden Verwalter waren sehr hilfsbereit aber zurückgezogen.
Thank you dear guest for your kind comments! We look forward to seeing you back at Vila Pocilgo when you next choose the Algarve for your holidays!
