It is not always easy to find a large, stylish villa for 20 guests where everyone has their own wonderful ensuite bathroom, and there is space for everyone to lounge and dine alfresco or laze around the pool at the same time.

With wonderful treats, including a sauna, gym, jacuzzi and a badminton and volleyball court, Villa Cristallo is a fabulous holiday villa for large groups.

Villa Cristallo enjoys a sprawling, modern layout with bedrooms on all three levels. All of the rooms in this delightful villa are generous in size. There are not too many villas where 20 guests fit in so easily! There are three double bedrooms on the ground floor, each with a stylish, fully tiled ensuite bathroom and direct access to the sun terrace and swimming pool. An additional large, ground floor double bedroom enjoys its own ensuite bathroom annexe and direct access to the pool terrace. The bathrooms are contemporary with a range of wet rooms, walk-in showers and baths, all luxurious and immaculate. There are two fabulous double bedroom suites on the first floor, along with the living spaces. One enjoys access to a large terrace while the other has its own private balcony with incredible sea views. The remaining four bedrooms are located on the upper level. Again, they all enjoy en-suite bathrooms, and a one-bedroom boasts a large private balcony with panoramic sea views.

Squishy leather sofas and chairs surround the huge television, and there is a small table that is perfect for a game of cards. There are steps down to the huge modern kitchen with oversized appliances, the dining room and the utility room.

The alfresco dining area and summer kitchen is a wonder with rattan lounge seating as well as dining for your large group. The kitchen includes a fridge, dishwasher and all the crockery, cutlery and glasses you will need. You do not need to go inside the villa at all once you are settled. Pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed, followed by a barbecue for 20! Close to the covered alfresco dining area is the jacuzzi under a pergola. You will have to take turns for this as it seats six though there is a bar area with stools so other members of your group can chat while you enjoy the bubbles. Youngsters will enjoy the table tennis, table football and other activities provided.

Villa Cristallo really is a fabulous choice for a large group and just minutes away is a stunning beach.

Luz is a charming, peaceful resort located between Lagos and Salema. It is a wonderful choice for families with beautiful beaches and an excellent range of restaurants and bars.

One of the two beaches is by the old fort. The main beach boasts a European Blue Flag award and is very safe for children. There are several supermarkets, the favourite being Baptista. It would be best if you also tried the cakes and bread from the bakers on Rua Direita. Those with an adventurous spirit looking for an adrenaline rush should book an eMTB electrically assisted bike trip with Booster Bikes. The longer trips are 65km, and guides take you to see attractive places from a completely different perspective though you may want to opt for a shorter trip.

Visitors enjoy the sensational cliff top walk to Burgau, where you can watch the Atlantic rollers splashing on the rocks below. Many visitors return to the charming Burgau time and time again. You really need to explore on foot to appreciate this little gem fully. The labyrinth of narrow streets leads to the stunning beach. The whitewashed houses all lean crookedly against each other, drapped in colourful flowers.

Salema is another lovely place to visit, especially to enjoy delicious sardines cooked at one of the restaurants overlooking the beach. The town enjoys a laid back, tranquil ambience where you will enjoy watching the local fishermen repairing their nets, painting their boats or early in the morning unloading their catch of octopus, sardines, sea bass and gilt-head bream. There are some wonderfully isolated coves if you are brave enough to tackle the cliff paths. Salema is located in the unspoilt Costa Vicenta Natural Park, a protected area of natural beauty. The half-mile-long Praia de Salema is a Blue Flag beach with sugar-fine, golden sand. It is wonderful for swimming as it lacks the strong waves that surfers love.

Lagos boasts a slave museum, a wonderful promenade and many restaurants serving delicious food in the Old Town. You can buy fresh local produce at the Saturday morning market. The honey and figs are very special. You can take an assortment of boat trips to visit caves and to snorkel or dolphin watch. Lagos is bustling with activity, nightlife and modern attractions. The town is historic and characterful with a rich seafaring heritage and a dramatic coastline. The fascinating buildings include the 17th-century fort and intricate Baroque churches such as Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Luz and the city’s ancient Moorish walls. The cultural centre of Lagos was originally built in 1710 as the Convent of Saint Joseph and is now home to exhibitions of paintings, photography and sculpture.

On the other side of Lagos, you will find the gorgeous Praia do Alvor. It is located at the end of a wonderful boardwalk all the way from Alvor Town and past the incredible, protected marshlands of the Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve. The stunning beach features three impressive sea stacks known as the Tres Irmaos or Three Brothers, as well as fine white sand, ochre sandstone cliffs, caves and extensive dunes.

Lagos is a city on the western part of Portugal's south coast. The city is famous for its stunning beaches with beautiful rock formations and steep cliffs. The superb beauty of this charming city has no equal in the Algarve and is the reason why hordes of tourists travel thousands of kilometres to visit it every year.

Quiet sandy coves are sandwiched between dramatic cliffs. The sandy 2.5-mile stretch of Meia Praia caters to every water sport imaginable. And when you've had your fill, you can digest your day with some of the best nightlife in the Algarve region.

Drinking and good times continue to be a fundamental part of a visit to Lagos, and the fine array of restaurants, bars and local festas stand as a testament to this. The busy flea market fills the centre's narrow streets, which also boasts a Cultural Centre hosting various exhibitions and events throughout the year.

Lagos is equally suited as a family holiday destination; there are safe and sheltered beaches for your children, while thrill-seeking teenagers will adore the theme and water parks.


Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that. There’s actually a load of fascinating culture and history, superb cuisine and enthralling adventures to be had, though we’d be the first to admit that the beaches are pretty special too, with lots of sand, spectacle and wonderfully clean water.

But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Villa Cristallo is perfect for children. With an incredible amount of space, a children’s swimming pool in addition to the main one, a badminton/volleyball court and various games to play, children will be very happy in this villa.

Lagos offers many boat rides to watch for dolphins or discover the fascinating coastline. There are amazing 4-hour cruises and sunset cruises where you will be enthralled by the colours of the sky. Children can try their hand at snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking or play on Lagos’ water trampoline. Kayaking through the surreal beauty of the Algarve’s caves and cliffs is a fantastic day out. For older children, you might want to pre-book a windsurfing course to take advantage of the huge rollers just along from Luz. The Algarve is also an ideal region for hot air balloon flights because of its 300 days of sunshine and absence of clouds. The flights, which can be booked in Lagos, offer breath-taking views from the air. Lagos Zoo is very popular. There are more than 150 species of animals to visit, including flamingoes, monkeys, owls, vultures, hippos, iguanas, meerkats, penguins, crocodiles and chimps. There are feeding times for pelicans, otters, primates and lemurs. It is a modern zoo with a strong emphasis on nature conservation. The Lagos Ciencia Viva Science Centre is excellent, with lots of hands-on activities. Visitors of all ages can participate in activities and interactive exhibitions involving history, science and technology. Tukano Tuk Tours of Lagos are popular. Visitors will enjoy the beaches, cliffs, countryside and traditional villages in a bright green electric tuk-tuk.

In Luz, as well as spending a day on the really safe, lovely beach, more adventurous children can take an electric mountain bike tour with their parents to discover the wonderful coastline. From Salema, you can arrange private rib boat tours visiting the grottos and bouncing on the waves.

The beach at Alvor is amazing, with stunning dunes. Alvor’s mini-golf course. Adventure Golf Alvor boasts 18 holes that are challenging and fun, with plenty of dinosaurs featured as its theme is ‘Lost World – Jurassic Park’.

Further away, The Slide and Splash Waterpark at Estombar is a great day out for the whole family. You can relax in the wonderful Portuguese sun, chill in the lazy river or take on the high water slides, thrilling inflatable rides and water playgrounds. There are some lovely pools and also live falconry, reptile and tropical bird shows.

  • Very nice villa

    on 30/08/2023

    Villa very nice and we are very much enjoying our holiday. Some of the furnishings are quite shabby and the hot tub should be replaced as barely works and actual tub is badly stained around the top. Please advise why the costs for this villa have more then doubled for next year. I would be interested in rebooking if prices were lower.

  • Stunning villa and friendly, hassle free service

    on 19/04/2023

    I was so impressed with Oliver's Travels from start to finish. We booked a large villa for 26 people, and of course catering for so many different people meant that there was lots of communication between myself and Nicola at Oliver's Travels. There were changes to number of beds, types of bed, need for travel cots, not needing travel cots, and whatever the request or query it was dealt with promptly, professionally and politely. Shortly before the holiday, I was passed to the people who dealt with everything Portugal end. Again, this was straightforward and hassle free. The villa was more than what we expected: plenty of space for our large party, beautiful grounds and in a clean and pristine condition. Our Villa manager during our stay was friendly and helpful. He was available by phone, but equally left us to enjoy the holiday. Oliver's Travels even sent a beautiful complementary beach towel ahead of our holiday! If, like me, you haven't booked a holiday for such a large number of people, I cannot recommend them enough. They completely took away the worries and a lot of work in aiming to give friends and family a dream holiday.
