About John Farrow

We live in Hertfordshire, now retired and thoroughly enjoy our trips to Lagos. We firmly believe it is the most attractive and appealing place on the Algarve. We rent out our apartment at very competitive rates because we like to have it lived in, rather than standing empty. We greatly appreciate the excellent reviews from people who have stayed there, including many who keep coming back.

John Farrow purchased this apartment in 2004

Why John Farrow chose Lagos Centre

We chose this apartment because Lagos is a lovely place and because the Portugal people are very welcoming. We love the climate. When it is very hot, it doesn't often get so hot that it is unbearable, because being on the coast there is a often a gentle breeze which makes it very pleasant. We liked the apartment the moment we saw it because it was newly built and very well built too. It is in such a convenient location and it is in an area where you are more likely to mix with Portuguese people than lots of tourists. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable and we love going there.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is very spacious and comfortable. A local lady in Lagos looks after it for us and keeps it in beautiful condition. It is the upper apartment with only two floors in the block. There is a lift for those who need it. It has easy access to the pool terrace and the rear balcony looks directly over the pool terrace. The large roof terrace has wonderful views. There is a private car space in the secure garage which is under the pool terrace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a fabulous apartment, with everything we could possibly need for our vacation. Large rooms, lovely layout, big lounge, well-equipped kitchen, beautifully decorated, convenient location. We cannot praise it enough. We love Lagos - by far the best place we have stayed at on the Algarve. We'll be back ...and back!

Perfect in everyway

  • 5 out of 5
We are regular visitors to Portugal but this was our first visit to Lagos and we cant wait to return to this lovely town and fantastic apartment.The apartment was everything we had hoped for and more.Perfectly positioned,spotlessly clean,spacious and with fantastic views from the sun terrace.Bedrooms are large and the balcony is great for sittig out or eating on at any time of the day or night.Kitchen provides you with everything you need if you prefer to stop in on occasions.This apartment caters for all ages in everyway loads of info, toys ,books,games and items for the beach, you would be very hard pushed to find a better one to suit your needs for your stay in Lagos.The town itsef is amazing,loads of trendy cafes,bars and restuarants all within easy reach of the apartment as are beaches and lovely walks.Big Intermarche supermarket approx 10 min walk,very handy.Thanks John and Doreen for being so easy to communicate with and making our stay so enjoyable,we will definitely be returning ,hopefully sooner rather than later.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Neil and family for such a great review. We like the contact with our guests to be on a personal basis, even though we have never met and we are so glad that they felt the same. A review like this tells us that we have got everything just about right, both about the apartment facilities and finding a location like this in Lagos. Thanks Neil - we appreciate your comments enormously.

Very good apartment

  • 5 out of 5
I am very happy to provide a review for this lovely apartment. The fact that my family has stayed there several times speaks for itself. It is a large apartment with three good-sized bedrooms, plus a bed-settee in the lounge. There is more than enough space for six people. There is a large balcony overlooking the pool area, which means you can keep an eye on the children. And there is a smaller balcony at the front looking over-looking the old town. The kitchen is very well fitted, with fridge, microwave, cooker, washing machine etc.

There are some very good restaurants close by and supermarkets are handy. It is only a few minutes to walk to the central area as the apartment is near the old city wall. There is a secure garage with a private parking place under the pool terrace and other free parking nearby.
Even though you are near the town centre, the apartment block and its environment is very quiet. The apartment has WiFi and broadband. We cannot speak too highly of the place.

A real home from home

  • 5 out of 5
We have been very fortunate to stay at this lovely apartment on three occasions for a month, and before that for a week. We love it. The bedrooms are very spacious with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. There is also plenty room in the lounge/dining area. We love the balcony which has the sun on it all day. It overlooks the pool area making it easy for families to keep an eye on their children. There is a good sized table and comfortable chairs for having meals outside, which we often did. The kitchen is very well equipped for eating in, but there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. Another bonus is the huge roof terrace with fantastic views, and sunbathing! The location is perfect, just by the old city wall and only a few minutes walk into the town and promenade. A few beaches are within walking distance too. There is plenty of information in the apartment of places to visit and it is handy having a secure parking place in the private garage in the basement. This apartment is truly a home from home and we highly recommend it. A great apartment in a superb location! Thanks John and Doreen, we had a fabulous time.

Owner's Response: It is such an encouragement to have a review like this one. We put a lot of time, effort and money in getting the apartment just right and it is good to see it has paid off. Lagos is a great place - in our opinion it is the best location on the Algarve.

Most definitely five star rating

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed in this lovely apartment from 15 to 23 October 2013. I was so impressed with it that I would like to record my impression. The first thing that struck me was the size of the apartment. It has three double bedrooms, all of them large, a big lounge with an additional section for dining and a kitchen with table and chairs. The kitchen cupboards contain everything you could need. The furniture in the apartment is of top quality and very attractive. There is a flat screen television, with a free-sat box, a DVD player and a lounge unit full of books, games, maps and fuides.
You can get on to the rear balcony from both the lounge and the kitchen and this balcony conveniently looks over a large pool terrace, where there are lots of sun beds.Also on the balcony there is a box of things to use on the beach, as well as sun umbrellas. There is also a balcony at the front, off the bedrooms. Immediately above the apartment there is an enormous roof terrace, with spectacular views over the old city, Lagos bay and the Monchiique mountain.
There is a lift in the apartment, but as the apartment is the upper of just two floors, the stairs are just as easy. It takes no time at all to walk from the apartment, through the gap in the city wall, to lots of very good restaurants and other attractions in the centre. A wonderful stay in a top class apartment aqnd definitely recommended for people of all ages. Without doubt, it is five star! Joan Patterson

Owner's Response: We would like to thank Mrs Patterson for this splendid review. How good it is when people appreciate the effort we have put into making the apartment both comfortable and welcoming. For us, this is a clear confirmation that we have got it right. We have always felt that comfort on the inside and convenience when you go out are a successful formula.

Spacious, centrally located apartment

  • 4 out of 5
This is a lovely, very large, well-kept apartment. There were 5 in our party and we all had plenty of room - the two smaller bedrooms have access to their own balcony with sea view, which was a nice space for our teenagers! There are ceiling fans in each room and we were never overheated inside, even in August.
The only down side is that the pool is quite small, particularly for older children, but the pool terrace is large and there are plenty of sunbeds! It is very clean, well maintained and secure.
There are loads of books, games, beach toys and inflatables in the apartment and there is also underground parking.
The apartment is very central to Lagos which is a lovely town with lots of restaurants and we ate out almost every night. It's an easy walk to the long beach or smaller beaches and also to the marina, so you don't need a car unless you want to go further afield.
The owners were really helpful with any questions we had and I would certainly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Great to have another review like this. The reference to the "two smaller bedrooms" is relative, as they are large by many standards. We are happy to provide dimensions for all of the rooms and the pool if anyone is interested.

Superb apartment right in the heart of lagos

  • 5 out of 5
Just spent 14 days in this lovely apartment in a very nice complex, 5 mins to the main drag in Lagos but also 5 minutes away from the local restaurants, supermarket and local fish markets.
Only 10 mins from Meia Prai beach but Dona Ana and Porto de Mos are also in reasonable walking distance. Picked up the cliff top walk from Porto De Mos into Praia da Luz which was breathtaking.
The apartment has everything you need and felt home from home, a car is not essential.
Views from the roof terrace are spectacular.
Favourite restaurants are Los Lambertos, opposite the windmill bar, Cantinho de Pesticho in the town centre and the Tasty India just up from the square.
Lagos is a great base to discover other areas of the algarve and has bus and train services to take you almost anywhere, we spent a day in Salema which was superb.
Would definately recommend this spacious apartment and thanks again to John and Doreen for our lovely holiday .

Lagos is on the coast in the attractive west end of the Algarve. It is steeped in history but at the same time has developed as a resort providing a wide range of activities. Very close to other quaint coastal villages and excellent beaches. Easy access to golf courses and many places of rural interest inland. Lagos is arguably the most attractive location on the Algarve, both for what the town itself offers and the easy access to other areas.

Golf: The nearest golf course is about 5 minutes drive away and there are several other attractive courses between 10 and 15 minutes drive. Full details of the courses can be provided on request.
