Easter weekend I took off with a bunch of friends and we rented a villa in Lagos, Portugal. We drove up via Seville and then back down along the coast to Portugal. It’s about a 4.5 hour drive which is a little longer than the roadtrip from LA to Vegas but without the gambling when you get there.

Lagos is a really enjoyable little town. Though there isn’t a lot to write about in terms of specific things to see or do it’s very relaxing and laid back. I think the most ambitious we got the entire weekend was taking a boat tour the day we were to head back to Gib. We went out on a large boat up the coast and then we all jumped into a small boat and the driver zipped in and out of the little coves.

The villa we rented was 3 stories; first story was the garage, second floor was the main entrance and bedrooms, and the third floor was the kitchen and living room. We had a pool, a view of the ocean, and a 10 – 15 walk into the marina for food and entertainment. Not a bad value for the money. I think we paid about £60 per person for the entire 4 day weekend. Of course it was off-season so I would expect rates to rise in the summer months.
