However, at Casinha Canal, we’ve mastered the art of providing high-end, comfortable accommodation without breaking the bank. Nestled in the heart of the Algarve, our charming holiday home offers an affordable luxury experience that stands out from the crowd.

Yet, when compared to other holiday apartments in the Algarve, the Casinha Canal shines with its competitive pricing.

Our holiday home is a testament to the fact that luxury doesn’t always have to come with a hefty price tag. The Casinha Canal is beautifully restored, with Moroccan-inspired interiors that exude sophistication and charm. The sunny roof terrace, the cozy living room, and the fully equipped kitchen are all designed with your comfort in mind. 

Ponta da Piedade

The Ponta da Piedade, one of Lagos’ many beautiful spots.

Moreover, the location of the Casinha Canal adds to its value. Situated in the historic centre of Lagos, you’ll have the best of the Algarve right at your doorstep. From stunning beaches to vibrant bars and restaurants, everything is within walking distance.

In addition, we believe that affordability should not compromise quality. Therefore, we ensure that our guests receive top-notch service, from the moment of booking to the end of their stay. Our property manager is always available to answer any questions and provide recommendations, ensuring that your holiday in the Algarve is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

The Casinha Canal is more than just a holiday home; it’s a space where you can relax, unwind, and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Algarve without worrying about your budget. Experience the Casinha Canal, where luxury meets affordability in the heart of the Algarve.

There are many beaches in and around Lagos that are suitable for surfing. With our house information for guests you’ll get acces to twenty (20) detailed beach descriptions.

Casinha Canal

The Casinha is only a few minutes walk from the nearest hospital, doctor, dentist or pharmacy.

Our ‘house information’ with over 20 pages of information about everything that is important including local travel information and tips, will be provided upon your arrival.

The Casinha is not suitable for small children or infirm people due to the stairs in the house.

A side note about the “Centro Histórico” of Lagos:
Please be aware that in the historic center of Lagos, where our holiday home is located, there has been an increase in construction and renovation activities in recent years. Consequently, there is a possibility that construction or renovation work may take place in the neighborhood, which as landlords, we cannot foresee or influence. If you highly value tranquility during your stay, we recommend considering this when choosing accommodation in the “centro histórico”. We are always committed to ensuring a pleasant and relaxing stay for you and are happy to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.

Beautiful house in beautiful quaint town

Beautiful and tastefully decorated in historic section of Lagos, which also happens to be a wonderful and beautiful town. No need for a car here as bus and train are short ( 10-15 minutes) distance to house . Would rebook without hesitation.

Excellent all round!

In the house the individual equipment and the colour design captivates, which conveys well-being and joie de vivre. Remarkable also the “small library” with selected books (not only worth reading in bad weather) Good the quiet situation in the old town and nevertheless one is in 5 minutes footpath in the pulsating life of Lagos with music, artistic performances and every possibility to eat very well. Breakfast in the morning around the corner completes the holiday pampering program in this enchanting city in Lagos, spoiled by the sun god. This charming city in Portugal, which has so much to offer, that if you have to leave at all, your next stay in Uta & Marc`s domicile will be in focus.

Finally some pictures of Lagos and the Algarve

Seven more reasons for visiting the Algarve (and stay in our vacation homes)

Portugal is serious about wine.
Despite the famous Port Wine, Portugal seems to be in the second-tier in the wine world, right after France, Italy, and Spain. And yet, Portuguese wines win the most prestigious awards every year.
Try vinho verde, white wines from Alentejo and the red wines from the Douro region.

Neighbourhood markets are fun.
Markets are the essence and beating heart of any town or city, and Portugal is not an exception. In Lagos you will find the fish market every morning at the Avenida. And on Saturday there is a big market with vegetables and fruits of the region.

Azulejos Tileart.
There’s no other place in the world where #tileart is so popular. Prepare to find elegant-painted tiles on the historical buildings, modern design instalments and even souvenirs shops.
Be careful where you buy the tiles from though. In recent years, a parallel business consisting of ripping tiles off from walls and sell it in places like street fairs and markets – e.g. Feira da Ladra, in Lisbon – has arisen.

Fado music will grab your heart.
Fado is probably the most melancholic and profoundly emotional music you’ll ever hear and still somehow makes the ideal soundtrack for every trip to Portugal. Even if you don’t understand a word, it has the power to make you thoughtful.

You can still find authenticity.
Although recent years have broken all records in tourism, you can still expect many calm and peaceful places. Many authentic restaurants, shops, and experiences remain authentic, particularly if you venture out to the inside of the country.

Algarve is perfect for sun-seekers.
Probably this is the Portugal you know better. This is where millions of tourists – including 95% of all Portuguese families – flock every year seeking the three Ss: sun, sea, and sand. Despite the summer crowds, the weather is fantastic, and the beaches are renowned worldwide, especially around Lagos, Tavira and Portimão.

You’ll learn what Saudade is.
After you’ve been to Portugal, something will grow on you. You’ll start missing the country and its people, weather and culture. Suddenly, a wave of nostalgia wins you over. Congrats, now you know what every Portuguese person feels when they’re away from home: saudade!

You will find seven more reasons on the bottom of the Casa Amendoeira page.

We would be pleased to welcome you soon as our guest.
