The apartment is on the second floor of a modern apartment block. There is a lift up from the garage floor which proved to be a great asset. The apartment, which is comfortably furnished and well equipped, faces south-west and overlooks a grass area planted with tall palm trees. Beyond, is the marina with yachts berthed for the winter. From the terrace it was interesting to watch the beautifully colourful Iberian magpies hunting for grubs etc. in the trees in the mornings. We were lucky in that the weather was balmy every day with no rain.
The apartment is very conveniently situated. A short walk away in a northerly direction is a very good supermarket - also a dry cleaners, stationers and cafe.Towards the south, and along the marina towards a foot bridge to the town, is a fresh shellfish shop which sells catches from the boats. Most days we went over to the town via the bridge to sample the many cafes and restaurants. Some are tourist orientated and expensive, but we found a few more traditional Portuguese places serving delicious grilled sardines.
There is a good bus service to Cape St Vincent and other towns along the coast. There is also a train service running east from Lagos. There is a rich history of marine exploration in the area. Prince Henry, the Navigator, planned journeys from Lagos. Not to be missed is the boat trip to see the rock formations and cliffs just outside the town.
.All in all a very enjoyable visit!
Lovely large apartment on the ground floor with near gardens at front and rear ensured we had a lot of outdoor space too, and not confined like the apartments with balconies that aren’t as private.
Very homely, and great communication with the owners who were lovely.
