QUIET GRD FLR APT, SEA VIEW+POOL, EASY WALK TO BEACH, MARINA&TOWN, QUALITY WI FI

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Albardeira - Alba Vilas

Quiet Location, easy walk to beach, 2 pools, 2 Bed 2 Bath + cot

Looking out to the sea, Alba Vilas is a beautiful, unusually spacious (150sq m 9ft ceilings), freshly decorated, 2 bed/2 bath apartment situated in a quiet cul-de-sac. A genuine 10min walk to the Marina and 15mins to the lovely Blue Flag beach of Meia Praia and the town of Lagos. One of two large terraces lead directly to the pool, spa pool and landscaped garden. There is a large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom which has a whirlpool bath and stunning glass basin. A twin room has an adjacent bathroom and shower and both bedrooms have patio doors to a terrace. The modern, fully fitted kitchen with patio doors opens onto a terrace with a built-in BBQ and cooking utensils. There is a cool box with picnic tableware for those days out. A spacious and light and airy lounge/dining room with views to Meia Praia Beach, leads out through patio doors to a south facing terrace, pool and garden. Electric shutters/videophone entry/Parking/Co2+Smoke alarm.

Not just a rental but our home from home and yours too. There is an English speaking manager who lives locally for all those queries or recommendations. Quality wi fi/internet connection and satellite tv available should you wish to use them. Unusually for this time of year we are able to offer 4 nights instead of 7 from 19th September 2014.

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.

About Jan Morgan

We live in the lovely South West of England but Portugal is very much our second home.

Jan Morgan purchased this apartment in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Christmas

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Fantastic accommodation and location

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a fabulous two weeks in your apartment in Lagos and just wanted to thank you. It is a beautiful setting and allowed us a timely chill out after a busy year. The setting is wonderful and the children particularly enjoyed the pool area. The apartment has everything
we could have wanted and the addition of a quality wi fi connection is great.

We thought Lagos town was a lovely place with something for everyone. We ate out many times and didn't have a bad meal anywhere.

Thanks again.

Fantastic!

  • 5 out of 5
What an absolutely fantastic holiday! We were 'wowed' when we went into the villa, it is spacious, clean, had everything in it you could possibly need, the air conditioning was wonderful and we were generally thrilled with the choice we had made. Dinis was helpful on arrival talking us through everything we needed to know about the villa and it was good to know we could call him if there had been any problems during our stay. The pool being only a few paces away was fabulous, well maintained and having use of the sunbeds was a blessing. The beach is only a 10 minute walk, a glorious sandy beach and clear blue sea although extremely cold!! We had a lovely coast walk and an exciting boat ride to the caves and grottoes. The supermarket was in easy walking distance, however, if you needed a taxi to get back to the villa it is well worth the 6 euros they charge and the supermarket will call one for you! We visited some lovely restaurants, our favourites being Quay Lagos and Don Toro. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our weeks holiday and would definitely recommend to friends and hopefully return again ourselves but next time for longer!!

Owner's Response: Alba Vilas is very much our home from home so it is great for us when guests enjoy it as much as us and have a fantastic stay.
Dinis our manager who lives locally and is English speaking, is always happy to help with queries or recommendations. A car is not necessary and if you wish, for a small fee he will shop for your arrival, so you can get straight in the pool or on to the beach. Alternatively, there is a small supermarket 2 minutes walk from the apartment which sells the basics, but also lovely fresh rolls and pastries. The large supermarket is about a 15 minute walk and here you can buy pretty much anything you would at home.
Although in a quiet cul-de-sac, Alba Vilas is an easy walk to the Blue Flag beach of Meia Praia, marina and town. If you prefer to explore further, the train and bus station are just across from the marina. Should you wish to relax instead, the beautiful pool area with a large and small pool, can be seen from our terrace. With showers, changing rooms and toilets here it is great for children, but we also like to spend time by the pool and then wander back across the garden to our patio for lunch and enjoy the lovely sea views. There is a quality wi fi connection and satellite tv should you wish to make use of them.

Fabulous, immaculate apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
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

  • 5 out of 5
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.

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.
