Make a holiday apartment in Lagos Centre your home away from home

Tucked away in the Algarve region of Portugal is the city of Lagos (which translates to ‘lakes’). It is one of Portugal’s most visited locations thanks in no small part to its incredible beaches and the plenteous entertainment options available to visitors. There is also the fact that Lagos holds an important place in the country’s history, boasting many interesting monuments. During summer the sparse population here swells with hundreds, if not thousands, of tourists taking up residence in Lagos Centre holiday homes. HomeAway offers visitors to this part of Portugal the chance to put up in luxurious holiday apartments, most of which are close to the beach. A number even occupy waterfront properties, allowing the lucky occupants to have the Atlantic at their doorstep. Also among the Lagos Centre holiday accommodation options are spacious villas with swimming pools and other great facilities.

Things to do

-Beaches: One of Lagos’ treasures is the 4km expanse of soft, golden sand that is the Meia Praia beach. Here hustle-weary city dwellers can recline and soak up delicious rays while doing nothing other than listening to the drone of the ocean. They can refresh themselves from time to time with visits to any of the many beach bars that dot this part of the coastline. Praia Dona Ana has picturesque boulders jutting out of the water that make for great photos.

-Water sports: Meia Praia or ‘half beach’ is known for providing prime conditions for a variety of nautical sports. For starters visitors could hire a speed boat and cruise the waters off the coast. During this ride they’ll get to explore the amazing grottos along the coast and spot a dolphin or two swimming along if they’re lucky. The more adventurous can take on the water in kayaks.

-Food and drink: Holidaymakers spending their holiday in Lagos Centre holiday homes will be able to get fresh grocery supplies for their meals from the local market on Saturday mornings. This small market is popular for the great variety of fruits and vegetables it provides at very reasonable prices. Visitors can also secure fresh fish daily from the city’s fish market.

-Eating out: On those days when they’re not up to cooking, visitors can go ahead and sample the offerings of Lagos’s restaurants. A great idea is to try out the small family-owned eateries, especially during the off season as holidaymakers will be able to enjoy scrumptious meals at unbelievable prices. To get a taste of freshly-caught fish, tourists in Lagos Centre holiday apartments can clamber down to the marina.

-Monuments: With a well-documented history that dates back to 2000 BC, it’s no surprise that the city is dotted with monuments that commemorate distinguished personalities or parts of Lagos’ cultural heritage. One cannot miss the stone likeness of Prince Henry gazing unblinkingly at the Atlantic that stands in the square next to the Governor’s Castle. The ‘Golden Church’ of St. Anthony is another one of this locale’s better known monuments.

Weather in Lagos Centre

Lagos enjoys temperate weather throughout the year. Winters here are mild and summers are not scorching hot. Anytime between May and October tourists keen on a sun-soaked Portuguese holiday can book holiday rentals in Lagos as they will find pleasantly warm climate. Temperatures at this time of year remain in the twenties, only dropping below 20°C in November as winter sets in. Even then, the coldest it gets is roughly 10°C.

Travel to Lagos Centre

The Faro Airport is the main gateway into this part of Portugal. This facility comes into its own during summer when various liners deposit travellers on seasonal flights from all over Europe at the arrivals terminal. From there visitors will have a one hour’s drive on the A22 highway to get to their holiday homes in Lagos Centre. For this they can hire a vehicle or pick a taxi from the nearby rank or use the more affordable option of the public bus. Holidaymakers could also choose to jet in through Lisbon and travel to Lagos by bus or train.

                                  Beautiful, spacious, high standard of fittings.

                                  The apartment was exceptionally clean, very spacious with high spec fixtures and fittings. Apart from a trip to Lisbon by coach, we pretty much spent the rest of our holidays in Lagos. We ate out every night, trying out different restaurants but had the option to cook if we wanted to as there are a good number of supermarkets close to the apartment. Both the owner and his agent are excellent in responding to any queries. We all had a great holiday and will positively recommend this apartment to anyone.

                                  Very well equipped and spotlessly clean.

                                  We were met by the owner, Ana, who was lovely. She took us through the apartment showing us how everything worked. Complimentary wine and fruit. The apartment was equipped to a very high standard and very clean. It was a ten minute walk to the Marina where there was a good selection of restaurants. Further along from Marina was the old town which was worth a walk around, again with lots of eating and drinking places. A lovely relaxing holiday.

                                  Overall, a beautiful apartment, well furnished and located within easy walking distance of the marina and the town centre, but quiet enough to be away from the heart of the nightlife. Simple to book, simple to arrange and overall an easy experience with Steve, Denise and Sylvester (who was on hand whenever we needed). We will definitely be recommending this apartment to our friends.
