I booked this apartment for myself and parents who are both retired and we all loved it. This was my fourth time at these apartments and have not had a negative experience once.
The apartment itself is clean,well furnished and modern with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The change over as we took over the apartment was quick and well organised. There is a good variety of info regarding the local services and day trips, there is also a comments book to leave a review in, this would be helpful if it was your first visit.
We stayed for 2 weeks and the apartment was cleaned and linen changed after the 1st week.
The supermarket is 2 mins away and put some of British supermarkets to shame with the freshness of food and choice.
We stayed in Sept-Oct and had no issues with sun beds or any noise etc
I believe most of these apartments are owned by families and rented out during the main summer months and then they come early or late summer to enjoy the peace and quiet and early/late sun - if you want entertainment/music and bbqs then these apartments are not for you.
There are security,handy men and cleaners who are there to help you if you require it.
The town of Lagos is beautiful as is Silves where there is a castle and church that is well worth a visit - TIP - You can get a train for a few euros to Silves and explore yourself rather than paying for a day trip costing 25-30 euros
Regarding eating in - Pingo supermarket has everything you need lovely cheeses,breads,fish and meat. There is a produce market on a Saturday morning by the bus station and the locals sell produce including fruit,veg,eggs,cakes,preserves and pickles, this is well attended by those who are self catering
Eating out - You can’t get a better meal than The Marina Bar which is a 2 min walk on the harbour, they include a specials board and children’s meals.
This has been one of the best apartments I have stayed in and well worth a visit
We loved this traditional house in the old town. Very spacious. Everything you could possibly want. Stairs were not a problem for us but bare them in mind. Loved the roof terrace with amazing views and made use of the bbq on quite a few evenings. A light on the roof would have been good as it gets dark early this time of year and it was a little difficult to see what we were cooking. Didn’t stop us using it though.
Being right in the old town was a bonus as previously we have stayed on the outskirts and relied on buses and don’t run very late. We loved being able to walk to action. Having said that, the house is tucked far enough away so as not to be troubled by revellers.
Comfy bed, good hairdryer (very important for us ladies), good citrus juicer and very well equipped kitchen. Good communication with the owners. A lot of very useful information about the house and it’s little quirks.
Thank you Uta & Marc. We had a superb stay.
