The Apartment: Placed on the 2nd floor of this newly built complex, situated on the award winning Marina de Lagos, the roomy apartment is on one level with wood floors throughout, allowing disabled access. It has a large modern kitchen with above average appliances. The lift to the apartment can be accessed from the garage level or entrance lobby (stairs from pavement). The bedroom is available with twin beds, which can be pushed together to provide a king size bed with suitable bedding provided for both. We are also happy to provide bedding for the use of the double sofa bed if required. Towels are available, but we ask that you only use your own towels for the beach. The balcony has lovely views on to the palm garden, here you can watch the birds (house martins, finches), see storks nesting and even occasionally spot hawks, or you can look out across the garden onto the Marina and watch the boats coming and going. It is especially lovely at night when the garden is lit and the lights on the boats and the town beyond dance on the water.
Marina De Lagos: The modern,award winning, marina is seen as you first enter Lagos from the main road. This complex has views out over the Marina onto the Town beyond. You can use the luxury Marina Hotel Pool, Spa & Gym for a daily charge. Of course the beach (600m away) is free, but there is a new luxury hotel and pool close to Meia Praia beach that you can also use. WiFi is available locally from the hotel and marina bars.
Access is very easy with no real need for a car. The train station is at the edge of the Marina and it is only a 5 minute walk into the town itself or the bus station. A tourist train runs from the Marina visits the various beaches and grottos around Lagos.
2 minutes from the apartment is a large supermarket, here you can get local breads, meats, cheese and wine. There is also a launderette here. At the bottom of the 'apartment palm garden' there are plenty of restaurants catering for all types of palates, from Pizza and sandwiches to modern or Portuguese restaurants and bars
Lagos: Lagos's seafaring tradition dates back to the 15th Century, when Henry the Navigator sent out his ships to discover the then unknown world. The ancient walls are steeped in history, but nowadays this town has a refreshing, relaxed charm. It is a very easy place to while away some time and is a good base for exploration of the Algarve. In Lagos you can indulge in history, visit the Slave Market where the Portuguese first traded slaves, now a gallery; the Church of Santo António with its golden chapel and attached museum or the Fort and much more. In the evenings you can sit in the Squares or dine outside watching street performers, artists and musicians entertain. At the Marina you can arrange excursions, including dolphin watching, grotto trips, coach tours, sailing trips and much more. Or just relax at the many world famous beaches that surround the town. Further afield you can visit the stunning areas of Sagres, Cape St Vincent or travel inland to Silves and Monchique towns
