Lagos - Voted No.1 best new destination by Trip Advisor 2013
Casa Amendoeira is a newly renovated town house within the historic town walls of Lagos and only a few minutes walk to great shops, restaurants, bars and beaches. It is not the usual 'holiday' accommodation: the Casa has been lovingly restored, furnished and equipped to create a beautiful and comfortable 'home from home'. Warm colours, paintings by local artists, a gentle hint of Moroccan furnishings and lamps greet the visitor on arrival. The two bedrooms (double and twin/double) are quiet, cozy and have very comfortable beds. The kitchen is well equipped, upstairs is a brigh...t and spacious open plan sitting room with dining area, with a cozy wood fired stove (for the winter months!) and from there outside steps lead from a balcony up to our wonderful 360 deg view roof terrace which is perfect for relaxing, sunning and 'Al fresco' dining, using our BBQ. all year round.
Lagos is the Algarve's loveliest, most historic town and is home to Casa Amendoeira, situated in a typical Portuguese street within the ancient Roman walls of the old town, and thus quiet day and night. We are just off the much beloved 'green tile square', Praca Luis Camoes, and as such within minutes of Lagos' famous daily fish market and its best cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. Within a few minutes walk you are on some of Europe's most romantic beaches, Lagos Old Fishing Port and Harbor, the beautiful award winning Lagos Marina and endless water sports opportunities. Some of the world's best golf courses are within a 10 min car ride. But the best thing is that Lagos is still essentially a thriving, local Portuguese town, with interesting markets, with the old town being a maze of interesting quirky fashion and craft shops. Faro Airport is an easy 50 min car ride away. Easy and free parking near house.
Other Activities: Gym, Latin Dance nights, Golf: There are numerous beautiful Golf Courses within less than 10 minutes car drive.
The house is very close to all town facilities including hospital, doctor, dentist, chemists. etc..all within short walking distance. A 'House Guide' setting out all facilities, house information and tourist information, is provided to our guests upon arrival. WIFI throughout the house, IPod dock, flat screen TV and CD/Radio available. A 'welcome pack' will be made available on request, at a charge of €10, for late / very early arrivals. This will contain fresh bread, butter, eggs, bacon, marmalade, coffee, tea and milk. Small Children: As the property has stairs both inside the house and outside leading to the roof terrace we recommend that this property is not suitable for small children.Read more

We stayed one week at Casa amondaeira, this lovely little house is truly a home away from home. You can feel the heart of the owners in every detail, it is not just tastefully decorated, but also with sense of practicality! I particularly liked the color scheme in the "pink" room and also the white shades combined with wooden antiques and baskets in one bedroom. The location is perfect, strolls down to the little town with its bars and cafes, the local fishmarket and hikes up and down little hills to the wonderful near by beaches is exactly the kind of exercise you want to get fit and toned in a vacation! We loved the stores around and I discovered fantastic leather bags, shoes and best Porto ever! Definitely will be back soon!
