Guests' Comments: Arlene Munro & Family Christmas 2006

'Just to say thank you again for the rental of your beautiful apartment at Alba Vilas. We really did have a healthy, chilled out Christmas. The children surfed everyday and I was swimming everyday. The weather was good and we came back with a tan on our faces. The apartment and gardens were really lovely and the directions spot on' (first of several stays).

Nigel Weekes - End of June/July 2007

'Just a note to say how very much we enjoyed using your lovely apartment. We really did have an excellent holiday and it very much lived up to our expectations. It was perfectly presented and beautifully clean'.

Steve & Bev Connell - August 2007

'Just to let you know we had a great time in Portugal. The apartment was excellent, very well fitted and extremely well located. Lagos itself was lively, bustling, but very safe with a huge number of very nice bars and restaurants'.

A cot and portable highchair are available.

Thank you. The rental of your beautifully furnished and fully equipped apartment at Alba Vilas was superb.

We really did have a healthy, chilled out Christmas. The children surfed everyday and I was swimming everyday. The weather was good and we came back with a tan on our faces. The apartment and gardens were really lovely and the directions spot on.

Once again thank you and Happy New Year.

Fabulous, immaculate apartment!

  • Review Submitted: 26-Sep-2013

Just returned from a lovely break at this beautiful, spacious apartment. With a 20 month toddler in tow, my husband and I managed to completely relax in what felt like a second home. The apartment was exactly as described with the added comfort of knowing the owner or the local manager were on hand for any questions.

The apartment contained everything that we would ever need for us all and more (travel cot, childs bedding, totseat, parasol etc)! To be greeted by a bottle of wine from the owners was even more special.

I would more than recomend this apartment to anyone looking for a hassle free, beach holiday, within easy reach of numerous restaurants, supermarkets and various facilities, in a quiet, yet central location.

First Class Apartment

  • Review Submitted: 20-Sep-2013

We have just enjoyed a week in this beautiful apartment. Situated in a very quiet area the only noise we heard was the sound of the cows as the farmer brought his herd through the field at the rear of the property every morning! Bliss!!

The apartment is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and has a spacious patio to enjoy a lazy breakfast or evening meal. Booking for the week couldn't have been easier as owner Jan was an excellent communicator and extremely helpful.

The busy season had just finished and we had the pleasure of sharing the excellent pool area with just a few other visitors. The garden area is very well maintained too.

The Marina and old town of Lagos are a bit of a walk away (for us pensioners!). In hindsight we perhaps should have hired a car for the week but we used the local taxis quite a bit as they were very inexpensive so it wasn't a big issue.

We had a couple of outings by boat and train and can thoroughly recommend the Bom Dia 2 hour cruise trip to the grottoes. Also recommended is the airport transfer company Yellow Fish - excellent service.

Thank you Jan for your superb apartment.
Owner's Response: I’m delighted you had such a good stay Sue and were able to enjoy the peace and quiet, whilst at the same time being close to amenities at the marina, town and beach. I would hope to walk to the marina in about 10 minutes and the beach or town in 15 minutes, but as you say, taxis are very inexpensive and easily available if you prefer not to walk.
A bonus of hiring a car or shuttle from Faro airport (I am always happy to pass on recommendations) is the vehicles are kept at the airport so there is no messing around with minibus transfers to another site. When you reach Alba Vilas, because it is not in the centre of town, there is plenty of free parking directly outside the apartment.
I look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

“Excellent apartment - 5 out of 5"

  • Review Submitted: 05-Oct-2012

The apartment was placed in an area with no traffic. The interior plan is well planned and very well equipped. This also counts for the kitchen ! We have spent many holidays in different apartments around the world but this has been the best experience.

With two young boys the apartment is in walking distance to Lagos city and the pool is big enough also for teenagers !

Nice terrace with sea view and always possible to find a place out of the sun. The manager was very kind and helpful also with tips where to go.

The best recommandations also to the owner for a smooth settlement of payment and valuable information on how to get to the apartment etc.

Relaxing break

Just back from a wonderful relaxing break at Alba Villas, the villa is deceptively spacious and has everything you could possibly want, it is in easy walking distance from the town and marina, The nearby beach is just breathtaking but if you dont want to walk the gardens and pool area are perfect for chilling!!
Would also like to recommend yellow fish transfers, didn't know anything about them when we booked but they were very punctual, door to door service and pleasent informative drivers. Can't wait to return next year.

Lagos is one of the most beautiful and historic towns on the Algarve. With picturesque cafes and cobbled streets it can be reached on foot in 15/20 minutes. The main promenade is lined with exotic trees and runs alongside the inlet and Marina which is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. From here you can take trips to see the dolphins and grottoes; dive; sail and fish. There is an excellent choice of restaurants, bars and shops in both areas with plenty of night-life during the summer months. Meia Praia is the nearest beach at a 10/15 min walk and here you will find a variety of restaurants plus a water sports centre. This beautiful Blue Flag beach has 4km of golden sand and the restaurants dotted along it offer a wide menu + fresh fish and local wines. With the new Algarve Race circuit plus Palmares, Boa Vista and Penina Golf Courses nearby; the Monchique mountains and coastal routes for walking/cycling; and both Zoomarine and Aqualand a 30 min drive, there is something for everyone.
