There is Karting at the Algarve Motor Park, horse riding, mountain biking adventures, winery tours and shopping centres for those needing retail therapy. From the marina you can book day trips such as dolphin safaris, it's also definitely worth taking a small boat trip to visit the 'grottos' and coves around Lagos.

At Foia the Algarve's highest point you can view the entire coastline on a clear day. Heading west the picturesque fishing villages of Salema and Burgau are a 15 minute drive, both are very quaint with lovely beaches where fishermen still launch their colourful boats from and tend to their nets.

Beautiful apartment, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from Firstgreen where we had a brilliant holiday. The apartment and resort exceeded my expectations and they were already high. The property and resort were perfectly maintained and the facilities had everything we needed. We loved the indoor pool and gym and all the boys thought the golf at Boavista and other nearby courses was fantastic. The non golfers even made use of the driving range.

The food and service in the clubhouse were a really high standard, we had dinner twice which was excellent and reasonably priced. The outdoor patio overlooking the 18th green is also a lovely place to sit over a coffee.

We did have a car and made use of it most days by driving 5 minutes to Luz which is a gorgeous place where you can watch the most stunning sunsets. This has a lovely beach but we alse found the beaches of Salema and Burgau to be scenic and quiet too.

I really can't praise the apartment and resort highly enough and Phil was really helpful and patient even when I changed and extended my booking. Thanks for a great holiday.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice apartment with just about everything you could wish for in terms of comfort, furnishings and amenities.

The view from the rear is the first green and is idea for the sun in the mornings and in the front the view is across the lake to the 17th fairway, with the sun from mid morning to late evening.

The clubhouse restaurant remains excellent value, especially Sunday roast, and there are several good inexpensive restaurants within a short drive.

All in all a good choice to spend a relaxing couple of weeks (or longer).

Fantastic apartment in the Algarve.

  • 5 of 5

Dear Phil and Debra,

We really enjoyed our stay at your apartment. Everything we needed was there.

Even the good weather and especially the quiet surrounding (maybe because of the time of the year). It is very good located in the Boavista Golf Resort. We enjoyed the golfcourse although it was a difficult one for us. We could use the indoor swimming pool with your cards but we didn't because the nice weather allowed us to swim in the sea on several beautiful location nearby.

So, Thanks for letting us rent your apartment.

Super holiday on Boa Vista

  • 5 of 5

Firstgreen apartment is a perfect setting for a truly relaxing holiday. Situated in a prime spot overlooking the 1st green and the entire length of the 17th hole. Only a short walk to a fab pool and the main clubhouse and just a 5 min drive to Lagos. The apartment itself is spacious, brilliantly furnished and spotless. It has everything you need for home comforts. Both balconies get the sun so you can just chill there all day. Definitely come again, loved it strongly recommended!

An excellent holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We found the First Green apartment to be a spacious and comfortable .It was very clean and well presented on our arrival.The apartment has all the mod cons you could wish for.The main balcony is south facing and overlooks the 17th fairway and gets plenty of afternoon sun.

We enjoyed the Boavista resort. The golf course itself was beautifully maintained and would recommend it to any golfer, regardless of their ability.The facilities at the clubhouse are excellent and the Spa is a very relaxing environment.It has superb views over Lagos Bay. The resort is on the outskirts of Lagos and the centre is not within walking distance,but the taxi service is reliable and relatively cheap.

We would certainly recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a relaxing location with excellent facilities who do not mind being outside the town centre.

Lagos - a bustling town with a unique charm.

The Western Algarve is a land of unspoilt natural beauty with some of the best golden sandy beaches in Europe, nestling in rocky coves. It's a haven for those in search of tranquility or the chance to experience the 'real' Portugal in quaint towns and picturesque fishing villages.

Just a 5 minute drive away from Boavista is the historic fishing town of Lagos, arguably the most attractive town in the Algarve. Explore the narrow cobbled streets of Lagos, that open onto tiled plazas with open-air restaurants and pavement cafes. Maybe take a leisurely stroll around the bustling marina where you can browse the yachts or simply sit and watch the world go by.

Several blue flag beaches are just a few minutes away, including the picturesque beach resort of Praia da Luz, Porto de Mos & the truly spectacular 6km Meia Praia beach - one of the longest and most spectacular beaches in the Algarve. The Algarve coastline is often compared to Cornwall - but with over 300 days of sunshine a year.

The journey from Faro airport takes about 50 to 60 minutes along the A22 motorway - a simple journey. We can recommend a local hire car company who we have used for 6 years or an airport transfer.

The nearest supermarket is 2 minutes away by car. There is variety of supermarkets in Lagos and a daily fish, fruit and veg market with lots of local produce on offer.

Taxis cost around 7 euros into Lagos or Luz, the local bus also passes the resort.
