Privacy and fabulous country and sea views.
The Rising Sun sits high, looking to the sea, the sunrise and the farmland to Monchique in the north. With 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms the accommodation is ideal for large groups or two families with each having a private separate space.
The house is a very comfortable, spacious, private villa with gated free solar heated pool, free Wi-Fi connection and stunning sea and country views. Yet this rural setting is only 1 km from the centre of Lagos. Well equipped, the house is built to the most modern standards with full insulation and double glazing making it cool in summer and dry and warm in winter.
We welcome families with children because the layout and comforts are ideal for family groups, but the spaces are designed to be homely for smaller groups. Children have a safe play area with a swing and sand pit as well as games, books, toys. They never leave the heated pool with its shallow play area and slide. Two cots, two high chairs a baby bath and two pushchairs and a backpack for a small child are included without charge.
