Carla & José purchased this Cottage in 1988
Why Carla & José chose Monte Judeu
Lagos was the favourite of all the Algarve towns the owners travelled to so decided to buy and settle here. The property was an old run down portuguese farm but with fantastic views of the countryside and a very peaceful and relaxing environment and yet only 15 minutes drive to Lagos town centre and beaches.
What makes this Cottage unique
Beautiful and tranquil countryside views away from it all and yet close to town centre and beaches. Excellent for retreats and peaceful days reading under a tree by the pool. Great for groups - 3 cottages accommodating 14 guests
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Really nice place with pool
We really enjoyed our stay at this house. It was clean and proper and the hosts were kind and were quick to help us if we asked for something. It was nice atmosphere and the pool was wonderful. We would recommend this to friends.
Perfect place to unwind and relax. Simple cottages in a peaceful country setting. Swimming pool and lovely garden to enjoy birdsong, read or just chill out by the pool. Lovely and charming hosts who live next to the cottages. Also town center was only about 15 minutes by car if you want to go out to dinner in the evenings which is what we did. Would definitely come again!
thank you Carla & Jose for a lovely holiday, & special thanks to the wonderful Mario & Manuela again... we had a lovely, relaxing 9 days at the Quinta
thank you for the lovely cake!
Thank you Gary and Mandy. Always so good to have you back at the Quinta for your holidays every year! Will send your message to the folks who always love your comments. Take care and maybe see you next year ;)
Beautiful property in lovely surroundings.
When first travelling to the cottage, it was a little worrying as it was clearly in the middle of nowhere. However the directions were spot on and we found it easily. After just a couple of trips back and forth, finding my way was second nature.
The cottage's location is, as I said, in the middle of nowhere, making it peaceful if not quiet (cocks crowing in the night, gunshots one morning, some activity across the valley some days), with beautiful views, including many windmills on the horizon. The best part of the cottage was the swimming pool which the kids loved so much they didn't really want to go out at all!
The nearby Lagos beaches are ok, but without a doubt the beaches further afield are better, especially the last one we went to, Praia do Beliche. It was marked as a naturist beach on our map/navigation app, but apart from a few bare breasts, there was no actual nudity. What there was was a cliff at one end that kept us cool, great waves, some snorkelling possibilities, great sandcastle sand, and a really great day!
The owner's parents who look after the place were friendly and helpful. The father, particularly, gave excellent directions to the nearest supermarket. I was extremely tired, fed up after some luggage went missing, and not feeling very good, but his directions were so clear I found the place with the greatest of ease.
All in all it was a good holiday, and we wished we had stayed for two weeks and didn't want to return home.
P.s. Buy lots of cheap oranges and make use of the electric juice squeezer provided. Watch out for Portuguese charcoal which is rubbish compared with English charcoal.
Thank you for taking the time to send in your review! it was a real pleasure meeting the whole family and glad you and the children enjoyed the property and pool so much.
