Reviews of QUINTA DA MATINA
We have been renting villas around Lagos every summer since 15 years now and this one has by far beaten our quality/price expectations. It's actually a renovated Portuguese farm but although big, it has loads of charm.
It's very calm and peaceful, if you hate having other villas overlooking your pool and terrace then this is the place for you. Basically a small paradise. The pool is simply huge and the terrace and gardens well kept and beautiful.
The house was impeccably clean and was well equipped with everything you need and very comfortable beds. Our only complaint is that there were no beach towels!
Good wifi connection, so the kids were happy.
We will definitely be renting this villa again next year!
Sad to leave
We have stayed at many holiday rentals over the years and can honestly say that this is the best. Spacious, cool, comfortable with a lovely interior and spacious exterior with a large pool. Even on the hottest days the interior remains deliciously cool. The bedrooms are comfortable and elegant and the kitchen and living rooms are extremely generous and well kitted-out. The owners live next door but you'd never know it as the house feels secluded and private. When we had a very minor problem with the water the owners fixed it almost before we'd noticed. All in all, my whole family loved just hanging out indoors or around the pool and we sincerely hope to return in the near future. We also had many happy excursions to Lagos and beyond. A gem of a house with a lovely atmosphere.
