A little about the area
Lagos is a fantastic town in the western Algarve that can certainly be enjoyed by all age groups. The older part of Lagos is still circled by the city walls that were constructed during the 16th century. It is certainly full of history, but it is also a vibrant town with lots going on.Lagos has some stunning views, it has to be said! From the Ponte da Piedade (in front of the lighthouse) you get a fantastic view of the sweeping sands of Lagos bay with the Monchique hills as a backdrop, and you can see all the way to Sagres to the West and past Albufeira to the east.
Praia da Luz is equally charming, but the perfect sheltered beach is a big draw for families.Our Praia da Luz 3-bedroom cottage is close to the beach; Our 7 bedroom villa is at a short walking distance from the centre of the village and the beach.
Vila do Bispo is a small town with older, typical Algarvian houses clustered around the 16th century church. It’s set in Costa Vicentina National Park, and close to the Park de Floresta tennis and golf course. All our accomodations are in the centre of the vilage, not far from the daily farmers market where you can get your fresh procuts!
Sagres is at the extreme western tip of the Algarve and is like no other destination in South Portugal. These dramatic landscapes are dominated by natur’s raw pawer. Having a laid back ambiance, Sagres is a great location in the Algarve, a truly unique town.
When to come
The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination. If you’re not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.
Welcome to the Algarve, welcome to Casa da Praia Algarve!
