  • A visit to this lovely vineyard is the perfect way to spend an afternoon. It is only 10 minutes outside the town of Lagos and is well worth a visit. Guillaume and his family have planted the vineyard ...  more »

  • A beautiful, quiet and authentic place where you can relax and enjoy the closeness of the real vineyard - at slow pace, relaxed, admiring the nature and vegetation around. The breakfast is served outside, in the company of 3 friendly dogs that makes the morning very enjoyable! It's possible also to join a winery tour and wine tasting of locally produced wines – to know better the history of the farm and especially the winegrower’s approach to the production of organic wines. Hosts are very friendly and helpful - gave us a very useful tips about the places worth visiting in the area and there are many of them!
  • Great Wine Tour and Place to stay! Guillaume gave us a lovely walking tour of the winery taking time to explain each step in the wine-making process, including the vines, grapes, harvesting, aging and bottling. It was a great lesson in producing organic wine for the whole family that finished with a generous tasting experience featuring two red and a white wine paired with fresh bread and crostini, soft goat's milk cheese and local artisan honey that WOW-ed us all. If only every winery experience could be this fabulous
  • Had a tour there at the small farm where we were shown around the vineyards, cellar and the fermentation room. There were no grapes yet as it is still early in the season (early June) but the hospitality we received was well worth it. It is an organic production and somewhat young (est. 2000), but the 4 wines produced are of great quality, rich flavours and strong taste! You will have to prebook the tour as they do them only on certain days. Recommended for every wine lover :-)
  • Great Place! We spend here 2 weeks of our holiday enjoying quietness and organic environment of the vinery. Start a day with breakfast on the terrace in the shadow sipping coffee and fresh squeeze orange juice and finish it during the sunset drinking great organic wines - rose, red or white. The place is very quiet, far away from city noise and as well it is suitable for visiting other Algarve locations especially beaches. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. We had in Monte de Casteleja good rest and felt there very welcome  We strongly recommend the Monte de Casteleja!
  • Friendly host and hostess, beautiful location and good wine!

Where to stay in Lagos

The historical city core of Lagos is packed full of colorful buildings and bustling streets, some of which date as far back as the medieval period. Though the hotels in the central district are on the expensive side, you can put yourself right in the middle of the city's best restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions by reserving a room there. The center and outlying residential neighborhoods also boast plenty of more affordable options, including smaller hotels, guesthouses, and family-run inns that offer fewer amenities but put you in good position to get out and about on foot. As Lagos is a relatively small town, you'll be within walking distance of both of its premier stretches of beach from nearly any lodging. Those with a car or transportation can get even further afield to experience other nearby coastal areas.
