Stunning

Review Submitted: August 26, 2009 Date of Stay: August 2009
We stayed in Casa do Lago for a week in August 09. The villa was easily big enough for our family of 4 adults (2 parents & 2 grandparents) and 5 children, and if we'd kept the baby in our room could have accomodated the other set of grandparents too.

The villa was simply stunning and exceeded even our high expectations having viewed the website.

It has extraordinary views over the lagoon and out to the ocean. The infinity pool is fabulous and the gardens look great but better still include a childrens play area, hammocks, outdoor gym, and crazy golf. This was paradise for the kids (3yrs to 14 yrs) who also loved all the toys and games in the villa: bikes, table tennis, table football, frisbees, inflatables, body boards, bikes (helmets even provided), trikes etc... For the adults there with at least 9 sun loungers by the pool, a wine fridge, sun shades on windows that opened and shut with the sun and bikes and gym equipment for the more adventurous.

We used the outdoor bbq and the lady who looks after the house for the owners was able to arrange for people to cook for us one evening without a problem.

The villa was cleaned and linen changed mid week, and the pool regularly cleaned. All the bedrooms were big, en-suite, with floor to ceiling glass door/windows onto the patios or balconies.

Furnishings and equipment in the villa are all as we'd have at home, not the usual 'rental' standard. Touches such as all switches being labelled and a pc provided with broadband made the stay even easier.

The beach in Foz was busy, but a 25 min drive around to the other side of the lagoon and leads to acres of almost empty golden sand, with the added pleasure of looking across at your own villa.

Very happy to recommend!

When booking we were a little nervous, but now and comparing prices and quality with other villas we've stayed before, Casa do Lago is the cheapest we've ever found.
The villa is a cinema star dream place.

Luxury Villa with Excellent facilities

Cat London
Review Submitted: September 23, 2010 Date of Stay: September 2010
Villa Casa do Lago exceeded all of our expectations - it provided the perfect setting for a week of relaxation with a group of friends. Equipped to an incredibly high standard, Casa do Lago catered to all our needs - a great pool for relaxing by and swimming, wonderful views out to the lagoon and Atlantic, a large garden with plenty of activities to keep us entertained (the crazy golf was well enjoyed!), a superb BBQ area for evening dinners, lots of games activities for some competitive fun, including table tennis and the kitchen, living and sleeping areas in the house were kitted out with all the best gear and accessories. Whilst we did not have any children in our holiday group, the villa is also ideal for younger generations, with a fantastic outdoor play area. Whilst a car is essential for accessing Casa do Lago and getting around the area, the villa is also equipped with bikes which were handy for local trips. There are plenty of good restaurants to eat at nearby and lovely beaches within a few minutes. We were on a golfing holiday and were able to easily access a large number of very good courses in a short time. I could not fault the service and attention to detail that the villa owner provided us - so helpful and easily accessible should there be any queries. This was by far the best private rental I have ever booked.

Excellent choice

Review Submitted: September 13, 2010 Date of Stay: June 2010
A lovely property - very well maintained. Perfect for families with a lot of thought going into child safety from locked entrance gates to child resistant locks around the pool area. Carlos himself put himself out to ensure that everything was perfect - he waited for our party to arrive and this was after midnight because of flight delays etc.. Very highly recommended.

Perfect Choice

Review Submitted: September 7, 2010 Date of Stay: July 2010
We have rented many villas in europe but found Casa do Lago certainly met all our holiday criteria......such views!!!

With 6 adults and 5 children to entertain there was never a dull moment with the villa's top notch facilities!

Both Carlos & Isobel were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them...

A great fortnight and a property I have already recommended to our friends

Reviewing this villa, comes to my mind Mourinho, “The Special One”. Casa do Lago is the “The Special One“ villa.
Despite some rain we loved very much our stay.
In this villa, everything is magnificent!

The very best house
Review Submitted: July 13, 2010 Date of Stay: June 2010
We are very grateful to owners for renting to us this amazing villa.
The house is truly lovely. We have rented many great houses over the years but Casa do Lago is definitely the best. It is in a wonderful location with a fantastic view. The house is set up as a luxury home (not a rental house) with everything you could ask for. We felt very much at home and can’t wait to return.

Paradise on Earth !!

Review Submitted: July 13, 2010 Date of Stay: May 2010
This villa is the Eden!
Congratulations to the owners!
The photos on the website do not even make justice to what the villa really is.
We already travelled a lot, always looking for the best villas to stay and we stayed before in many other fantastic houses, however “Casa do Lago” is the best we could find, “the special one”.
We were planning to travel to discover the region, but after our arrival to the house, we changed our plans and decided to do nothing, just stay and relax.
We will recommend it to our friends and we will come back.
Volker Bruijn, Holland
I wish I could own a property as Casa do Lago, but please forgive me, I would never rent it, because the villa is the perfect dreamed place to live.

Review Submitted: April 8, 2010 Date of Stay: March 2010
The pictures of this villa are fantastic, but they don't even do it justice. The villa is amazing, spacious, modern and extremely well equipt.

This villa is perfect for groups of adults to young families with children.

It was immaculately presented and clean, and the owner is only too happy to make your stay enjoyable.

I would be delighted to recommend this Villa to anyone and would love to go back again

Casa do Lago superated in luxury every places where we have been before! It's just fabulous!!!
We already knew the Silver Coast region, but everytime we rediscover it, we found it more and more interesting.
About the Owners we kept the best image and opinion.
Children loved the villa and of course, we are planning to stay there more times.

Enjoyable stay

Review Submitted: April 5, 2009 Date of Stay: August 2008
We are the Brazilian family; Inês and Vinicius, with our 4 children, Eduarda, Lucas, Frederico, Madalena, our 3 grandparents, that stayed in your villa for 2 weeks of July / 2008 and we want to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your house.
It's a millionaires dream place ! In effect the luxury and standards are so high that we must confess it was painful for us to leave the villa to daily outside activities.
The home has everything we may dream to have, in order to relax and enjoy. Pool, gardens, children playground, and so many other items are just fantastic.
Our children found a paradise there; even now they keep speaking about your villa...we will have to return.
The place is tranquil, relaxing, beautiful; in a brief, absolutely superb; we were not expecting so much.
Location is magnificent; within 1 km we could enjoy the natural asset of Obidos Lagoon, a very suitable beach for children and on the opposite side, the village centre.
We so much enjoyed our walks on the beautiful, long deserted beaches...
The nearby mediaeval city of Obidos and the whole region, are so nicely kept in our memories.
The weather was magnificent throughout our stay and we are left with fond rememberings of our family reunion.

Thanks again for your help in making our stay so enjoyable.' Inês and Vinicius from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Our family's best holiday stay

Review Submitted: March 16, 2009 Date of Stay: September 2008
Our family had a great stay at this beautifully kept villa last September. The property sits on a hill, overlooking the beautiful Atlantic ocean. We still talk about the beautiful views, especially the sunsets overlooking the ocean, by the infinite pool. Everything in the property is modern and outstanding.
The restaurants in town offer great meals reasonably priced. Our family enjoyed some of the area trips to the castle of Obidos, the city of Caldas da Rainha with its market, and the beaches of Sao Martinho and Nazare.
This property and location is by far better than any of the properties we have stayed at in the south of Portugal, and the Caribbean.
The kids keep asking "When are we going back dad?"

Thanks,
from Canada
