About John Griffiths

Having lived in Portugal most of my adult life & loving this part of the Algarve, especially Lagos, Porto de Mós was the obvious choice as it still retains its typical Portuguese charm and as this is where I live it seemed the right choice to provide high quality holidays right here

John Griffiths purchased this villa in 2007

Why John Griffiths chose Lagos Town

The 'location' - the Surveyor told me that there are no more than 100 properties along the whole Algarve Coastline in such a location

What makes this villa unique

The views, changing hourly with all of the different boats, fishermen (day & night), yachts, dolphins & more frequently whales

Fabulous Villa and very spacious

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our 1week stay at Casa Sol in Lagos 18th-25th June. We arrived at the Villa a little early but this wasn't a problem as we were made very welcome by John and his wife who showed us around and gave us a run through how everything worked. The whole of our party of 9 adults were very impressed with this gorgeous Villa, pool and all the amenities that were available to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We were also lucky to have the option of a late checkout at an extra cost which was a god send as our flight wasn't till the evening, so it felt like we had an extra day to relax before heading home.

The beach in Lagos is beautiful and only a short walk away. There are 2 restaurants located on the beach but would only really recommend the one with the little cafe outside. They do a gorgeous Tuna Salad and the prices are very reasonable for all the food and drinks.

I was a little concerned about getting my deposit back after reading some of the reviews but I have already received it after being back home for 2 days. I would highly recommend staying in here to anyone. Hopefully we will be back sometime for another stay. I would also recommend hiring a car especially for the supermarket runs.

5 stars from all of us!

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This villa was amazing. The first thing you notice upon stepping through the door is the space and opulent, tasteful decor. The villa is very well planned with kitchen, dining room, utility room and exceptionally large lounge and 2 bedrooms/ bathrooms on the same floor. The other bedrooms/bathrooms were on the lower floor which provided maximum privacy. The villa was spotlessly clean. John agreed we could leave our cases there before occupation as we had arrived on an early morning flight. The kitchen cupboards were full of crockery, glassware and useful gadgets. The towels and bed linen were all of good quality. There was plenty of outside space with tables, chairs and sun beds. I was a bit worried with so many bathrooms if there would be enough hot water if we were all showering at the same time, but my fears were unfounded as the water was always scalding hot. Carla was also on hand and came and instantly replaced the toaster which we couldn't get to work one morning and once again patiently explained to us how to operate the tv. We attempted a walk to the supermarket which was not for the faint hearted as fairly hilly, but not impossible if you are fit. John also provided details of a local taxi for us to use and Manuel the driver was very friendly and reliable taking us back and fore Lagos to various eating places. Normally 10 euros each time for 5 of us. . We also ate at the beach bar which was accessible in just a few minutes. The only downside which was completely outside of all our control was the awful weather. It rained solidly for 6.5 days out of 7 and was cold too. My lovely summer dresses stayed in the case whilst I lived in my fleece. We have been to the Algarve many times and always had amazing weather in the past. Our big regret was not being able to take the cover off the fabulous infinity pool for a dip. John also made a recommendation for the airport taxi service which was one of the best we've ever had. So the weather did put a dampner on our holiday, so we couldn't use the facilities to maximum enjoyment however the villa itself was faultless. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday I would thoroughly recommend staying at this fantastic villa. Thanks to both John and Carla for all their help.

I recently stayed at this property, and while it was nice, spacious, comfortable, and near the beach, I have not been able to get my deposit back. I have received communication from John Griffiths saying that my deposit has been released (there has been no reason for my deposit not getting returned) but I have yet to receive it. When I contacted HomeAway, they emailed him multiple times and encouraged me to file a complaint.

Brilliant holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Sol in the summer holidays and had an excellent time, the owners were responsive and accommodating. The villa was in very good condition and situated in an ideal location.

I thoroughly recommend Casa Sol and i would imagine the other properties are of a similar quality.

We would definitely book one of these villas again.
