Overview

Photos and Description of this Lagos holiday house

House, 7 double beds, 7 baths, upto max 20 persons, daily rent=incl. 14 persons!

'Boavista' means 'beautiful view' and it was built in 1992 on a 14,000 m2 large plot. The Portuguese architect Jose Nobre designed a villa in par with his experience and knowledge of Portuguese architecture that was created in the rotunda principle. Then emerged a house that could accommodate 14 to 20 guests with 7 double bedrooms and 7 marble bathrooms. A spaciously sized swimming pool, palm trees and bright sun invite you to a refreshing swim.

The house will surprise its guests with large and beautiful rooms. Each double room has an extra bed, private bathroom, fridge and Satellite TV. Thus this house enables you to spend your holiday with friends or in group - with the pleasure of being together and also the opportunity to be 'all by yourself' for once.

The exclusive location, the view of Lagos, the sea and lots of little extras in Vila Boavista promise sunny and relaxing holiday in the Algarve. And last but not least the wonderfully clear water, the secretive coves and a delicious grilled common sole will conclude many sunny days with a delicious glass of green wine. The beautiful evenings on the terraces or in the Palm Garden of Vila Boavista overlooking Lagos at night bestows our guests with the romance of this magical place.

The highlight of a carefree holiday without any duties! Pure joy and relax on the sunny side of Europe:

Antonia's house-maid service:

Would you want to let yourself be pampered together with your friends for once? Then you should book our 'House-maid-service'! Antonia, the soul of our Vila Boavista will surprise you in the morning with a delicious breakfast, freshly baked bread, pancakes, fragrant coffee and many other goodies! After breakfast, you can immediately set out in the sun. Antonia takes over all the cumbersome responsibilities of the household for you.

Totally according to your wishes, Antonia serves iced cocktails by the pool, homemade almond cake on the table laid in the afternoon and serves delicious ice creams or grilled seafood varieties on the terraces of our villa.

Naturally you can determine whether, when and how often you want a meal, as long as it is practicable in 7 working hours per day.

Weekly wages: € 250 flat rate for 14 to 16 guests

(For 12 guests = € 18 per person and week)

Antonia will discuss with you, on the day of arrival, your wishes and preferences that you have specifically in terms of meals. She can give you the exact price of grocery items, which you will more or less consume, depending on what you have agreed more upon, either lobster or spaghetti.

Antonia will settle the grocery bill always with you. The daily lunch price per person is expected to be between € 8.00 and € 15.00; As already mentioned, it all depends on how many Portuguese wine bottles are emptied every evening and which fish specialties are grilled!.....

Feel free to also check out some menu suggestions on our website. This menu includes dishes that Antonia especially prepares deliciously.

Basically, during your holiday you can also spontaneously arrange with Antonia, which food you particularly have an appetite for at the moment.

About Eva and Uwe Schwaninger

Eva-Maria and Uwe Schwaninger, the owners of Vila Boavista learned about Algarve during a holiday and fell in love with it.

Portugal Algarve - the land behind the coast - Serra, the Algarvian Mountain, charming small villages and towns that are similar to none of the places we could ever have been.

Algarve as a place full of history and stories in which nothing, which could be of importance, happens in a rush. -

These unforgettable impressions strengthened in 1992 the decision to establish a small holiday oasis on the sunny side of Europe. A novel concept - a variation between house and guest house - invites all our guests to forget the 'hectic Sundries' of everyday life.

Crystal blue sea, secretive coves, the famous caves and perhaps the cleanest beaches

of Europe may support the Greek geographer Artemidorus, who travelled the West Coast

of Algarve in 104 BC and wrote:

'This is perhaps the place, where the Gods take rest after the day's work!!'

Eva and Uwe Schwaninger purchased this house in 1992

Why Eva and Uwe Schwaninger chose Lagos region

You take the Portuguese delicacies of southern cuisine, comfort, good service, the comforts of a hotel and mix it with the freedom of a holiday home! To top it off you experience it with the feeling of being at home in a Mediterranean environment. What comes out is your fantastic holiday in Vila Boavista, as a couple, with children, or in a group with friends or family.

What makes this house unique

Convenient location

The Vila Boavista is located about 2 km outside of Lagos on a hill, adjacent to the golf course built in 2000: 'Boavistagolf'. The magnificent 'Vila Boavista view' of Lagos, the sea, the expanse of the golf park and the Monchique Range encouraged the owners to decide not to have the property directly in the city centre, but away from the tourist bustle.

Our guests can be in the city within a few minutes to visit the hustle and bustle, the artists, jugglers, musicians, numerous shops and boutiques, handicrafts and, of course, an almost unbelievable variety of fish taverns and restaurants.

And many coves, caves and beaches are nearby; many of these beaches can be reached through fascinating hiking trails on the cliff paths of Lagos.

Thank you Boavista!

  • 5 of 5

Bom dia Boavista!

Our entire family (10 adults & 8 children) celebrated an unforgettable 50th birthday at the Vila Boavista where we spent a few wonderful days.

Antonia's home made food was amazing!

We laughed, danced and celebrated in the big beautiful garden and terrace. The pool was great fun for the children and we could only get them out at meal times.

Vila Boavista is a beautiful secret escape for families and friends. We felt at home and Antonia's house maid service is a Godsend for all women.

See U next holiday! :-)

5 stars for 7 days of fun and joy!

  • 5 of 5

What a great holiday! I don't know where to start praising and saying thank you!

Antonia's food: it was just brilliant! Our breakfast: no shopping, no work, no washing up and cleaning. We asked Antonia to prepare our breakfast a bit later in the morning because we love to celebrate deep into the night.... And then to wake up (late) in the morning enjoying the delicious smell of coffee. We definitely recommend Antonia's pancakes with orange jam!

Each room has its own bath. The garden is of such beauty that we spent much time sitting there long after sunset even taking a plunge into the pool.

Thank you so much Vila Boavista, it was really great! We will come again

Traumhaft schön!

  • 5 of 5

Mit einer recht großen Gruppe waren wir nun schon das 6. Mal in der wunderschönen Vila Boavista.

Es war - wiedereinmal - der absolute Wahnsinn.

Die unterschiedlichen Möglichkeiten am Haus (mehrere Terrassen, der schöne Bereich um den Pool, usw.) laden zu entspannenden Tagen am Haus ein. Antonia sorgt mit ihrer unvergleichlichen Art für das leibliche Wohl und auch manche pädagogische Spitze. Letzteres ist sehr hilfreich, wenn man mit Jugendlichen reist...

Zur Algarve ist zu sagen: Absolut abwechslungsreich. Gebirge, Touristenstrände, wilde Strände, Bars in Lagos, tolle Restaurants, das Ende der Welt in Sagres, Atlantik, Sonnenuntergänge.

Dieses Haus, dieser besondere Ort, diese Region - dieses Zusammenspiel von alldem machen eine Reise in die Vila Boavista immer zu etwas Magischem!

Danke dafür!

Owner's Response: Translation for our English-speaking guests: ***** A perfect dream It was already the sixth time we spend our holidays at the beautiful Vila Boavista with quite a large group. It has been once again just about the limit. The different options around the house (several patios, the beautiful space around the pool, etc.) are an invitation to spend some relaxing days at the house. Besides providing meals and refreshments in her unique manner Antonia is great at making pointed educational remarks. The latter is very helpful if you travel with young people.... Regarding the Algarve the following can be said: A rich variety of landscape, mountains, tourist beaches, wild beaches, bars in Lagos, fantastic restaurants, the end of the world in Sagres, the Atlantic Ocean, sunsets. This house, this special place, this region – the combination of all this makes the journey to the Vila Boavista turn out to be magic! Thank you for this! ************ Lieber Sebastian Richter, Herzlichen Dank für die so überaus freundliche Bewertung! Wir haben uns alle sehr darüber gefreut! Und eines ist ganz klar: Auch Sie bekommen als unser Gast 5 Sterne ***** Sie sind uns immer von Herzen willkommen und deshalb auf ein baldiges Wiedersehen in Lagos!!!

Unser Urlaub in der Vila Boavista war ein Traum!

  • 5 of 5

Es war einfach alles klasse und zu unserer vollsten Zufriedenheit.

Der Pool und der Garten außen herum haben uns am meisten fasziniert. Für die Kinder war der Pool das absolute Highlight. Nach dem Frühstück erst mal eine Runde schwimmen, springen und planschen. Das macht glückliche Kinder und entspannte Eltern. Für uns Erwachsene war der Garten um die Villa herum märchenhaft, so viel verschiedene Farben und Formen der Blüten und dies alles so angerichtet das der Garten eine nartürliche Schönheit ausstrahlt, wirklich märchenhaft!

Zwei ganze Tage waren wir nur in der Villa bzw. am Pool und im Garten weil sich die Kinder das wünschten und einfach glücklich am Pool waren. Glückliche Kinder, höchstzufriedene Eltern kurz um ein genialer Urlaub. DANKE!

Ein besonderes Lob gebührt natürlich Antonia, die uns mit Ihrem morgendlichen Frühstücksservice sehr verwöhnt hat. Sie hatte immer ein offenes Ohr für unsere Fragen, gab uns Tips und hat uns eine super Delfintour gebucht bei der wir einen Haufen Delfine gesehen haben die um unser Boot herumschwammen und sprangen. Das war echt ein besonderes Erlebnis.

Wir haben in unserem Bekannten- und Freundeskreis schon viel von der Vila Boavista berichtet und hoffen zukünftig mit Freunden mal komplett buchen zu können.

Herzliche Grüße von Familie Abe
