About Uta & Marc
We are a couple with two children (20 and 7 years old) living in Germany. Our favourite destination for holidays was the Algarve, so for us, the "Casa Amendoeira" is a dream come true.
Uta & Marc purchased this House in 2014
Why Uta & Marc chose Lagos Centre
We purchased the Casa in November 2014, because it is in excellent condition, cosy and lovely. It felt like the perfect home from home for us, so we decided to change some details only, like gaining sustainable energy by installing solar panels on the roof and infrared heaters to keep you warm in winter. Meanwhile a lot of moroccan style interior has moved in to make it even more special and give the house a unique atmosphere.
What makes this House unique
The roof terrace allows a beautiful view to the ocean and the old city of Lagos. You are really in the city centre, but not located in one of the main streets. Therefore the street is quiet yet still close to the next good restaurant and shops within 2 minutes. And it will feel good to know, that all energy you need comes from the solar panel on the roof.

Home away from home
We had an excellent holiday in Lagos which was hugely enhanced by the beautiful house we stayed in. It really was a home away from home. The location was perfect to reach everything on foot, and the house was very well equipped and clean. We loved every moment of our stay here. Thank you
Lovely Casa Amendoeira in Lagos City Center
Our trip to Lagos exceeded all our expectations. Uta and Marc have made Casa Amendoeira a home away from home. We were just minutes from everything in the city center, but if we decided to stay "at home," we were just steps from a magnificent view via our rooftop terrace. If we had any questions or concerns, Ana addressed each one as quickly as possible. We loved the easy access to the beaches and hiking the trails along the cliffs to the lighthouse. The wonderful park just outside the old city wall was also a favorite place to walk or relax in the sun and picnic. We are already in the planning stages for a return trip in 2020. I can hardly wait! --J&N
Comfortable, cosy, convenient and very characterful.
We loved this traditional house in the old town. Very spacious. Everything you could possibly want. Stairs were not a problem for us but bare them in mind. Loved the roof terrace with amazing views and made use of the bbq on quite a few evenings. A light on the roof would have been good as it gets dark early this time of year and it was a little difficult to see what we were cooking. Didn’t stop us using it though.
Being right in the old town was a bonus as previously we have stayed on the outskirts and relied on buses and don’t run very late. We loved being able to walk to action. Having said that, the house is tucked far enough away so as not to be troubled by revellers.
Comfy bed, good hairdryer (very important for us ladies), good citrus juicer and very well equipped kitchen. Good communication with the owners. A lot of very useful information about the house and it’s little quirks.
Thank you Uta & Marc. We had a superb stay.
We love to receive constructive reviews like this one. This helps us a lot to make the house better for our guests. Based on this review we just installed a solar driven LED lamp on the roof terrace. It gives enough light if you want to read or eat on the roof terrace at night. But of course you can turn it off if you prefer to enjoy the stars and the ocean view.
Gorgeous house, beautiful location, perfect holiday
Absolutely recommend a stay in the wonderful Casa. Great house in perfect location to explore Lagos! We loved it
Great location close to the centre of historic Lagos and all local amenities.
This house proved to be the ideal location for our family to enjoy the historic town of Lagos and the surounding area. The house had all things needed by our family, but the star attraction was the roof terrace and the amazing views that could be seen from here.
Lagos had a lovely range of activities for the family including kayaks, surfing, beaches and shopping. There is also a lovely range of restaurants in the local area for all tastes.
Tho2s house and Lagos proved to a great location for our family holiday with two teenage children.
Home away from home deluxe edition
Thanx to Uta an Marc..the friendlies hosts you could wish!
What a phantatastic place!
We hat the best time we could have in Portugal.
The Casa is so cosy and nice and well located, that we really felt like home, but better.
I don´t know anything what could be better in a holiday home....
The view of the rooftop is so breathtaking... homemade breakfast there feels like in heaven.
The days we were to lazy to make breakfast, we visited one of the hundreds of nice stylish bars in the neigbourhood who provide excellent healthy and cheap breakfast.
Lagos is a city you have to love... all the nice bars, and for me als a hobbie barista, all the coffee bars (perfect espresso 65 euro cent!!) Pastel de nata for nothing.. The harbour, the shopping places, restaurants, it actually feels like heaven to be in this place.
Beaches in 10 minutes food walk, quite surrounding around the casa, but 3 minutes to the center of everything. Like I said on top.. The location couldn´t be better...
See you next time for sure to another holiday what feels like you visit a friends house..
We still dream of our nice 2 weeks in paradies.
Please don´t change anything because it just could get worse.
Best regards from western Germany from a really satisfied and happy Family.
Thx for letting us stay in your amazing Casa.
We recomment to everybody to book this place.. there is for sure nothing better in Lagos

All the best to Uta and Marc & Family...
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: Horse riding, about 20 min car ride away, surfing at the wild west coast with huge atlantic waves about 30 min car ride, diving, kite surfing, hiking (Serra da Monchique, 30 min by car), Sailing, Boattrips (we recommend Bom Dia boat trips), dolphin watching, kayak...
Discover the beaches in the Algarve, choosing either the moderate sea (Lagos direction of Portimao), or the Atlantic side, Vila do Bispo, Carrapateira, Aljezur.
