Located right on the outskirts of Lagos in the Algarve, Porto de Mos is a wonderfully luxurious development within walking distance of a magnificent sandy beach, two golf courses and all the attractions of Lagos town centre. A self catering Porto de Mos holiday letting is an ideal place to stay in the Algarve, especially if this is your first discovery of this magnificent region.
The Porto de Mos skyline is dominated by the huge walls of the massive Porto de Mos Castle. Originally a 9th century fortress, the castle has been restored a number of times, and is still very much worth investigating. The walk to the top is definitely worth the effort from a Porto de Mos apartment further down the hill as the views along the coast from the castle are quite extraordinary.
The castle however is not the biggest attraction to those staying in a Porto de Mos apartment. The wonderful Algarve beaches upon which Porto de Mos is built offer visitors the chance to enjoy a world class beach holiday in the sun. The Lagos region is known as having some of the finest beaches in the whole of the Algarve, and the beach at Porto de Mos certainly helps with this claim! The sand is remarkably soft, and there is plenty of beach space to go round. Backed by steep cliffs, Porto de Mos Beach is fantastically sheltered, as it slopes gently into the warm, clear waters of the Atlantic. If the local beach doesn't suit your tastes, there are a huge range of others in the vicinity of a Porto de Mos apartment to choose from, including the famous beaches of Dona Ana, Homers and Sae Roque.
There are also a number of excellent golf courses in the area. The Algarve is famous for both its beaches and its golf courses, and there are plenty to play in the area surrounding Porto de Mos. Taking self catering holiday accommodation in the region is a great idea for playing the Algarve courses, and all you will need to bring with you from home is a handicap certificate. There are two fantastic golf courses within a couple of minute's walk of a Porto de Mos apartment too.
The town of Lagos is within easy walking distance of self catering Porto de Mos holiday accommodation, whether that is an apartment, holiday home or luxury villa. Lagos is often considered the most friendly and exciting town in the Algarve, offering visitors a huge range of leisure activities, historical monuments and world-class restaurants. The Franciscan Monastery and the Church of San Antonio are two of the most interesting places to visit from a Porto de Mos apartment both of which are clearly visible as you enter Lagos.
Holidays to the Algarve are popular all year round due to the stunning climate of the region. During the hot summer months, temperatures routinely hit 40?C during the heat of the day in July and August, whilst it is very rare to experience temperatures under 10?C during even the coldest months, leaving the many local attractions and numerous golf courses open and doing great business.

There are frequent flights to Faro from all across Britain, and finding a suitable connection should not pose any problems. There are some remarkably cheap flights available the majority of the time due to the competition, and there are plenty of car hire firms at the airport.
