About the property

3 bedroom apartment overlooking shared pool in a small condominium in Lagos.

The apartment was built in 2004 by Oceanico Group. Finished to a very high standard, it is within a gated, secure environment in attractively landscaped gardens. It is on the first floor overlooking the swimming pool and gardens and with views from the balconies extending to the Monchique mountains. The apartment is air-conditioned and wi-fi is installed. Around the pool are ample sun loungers and the restaurant/snack-bar is open every day except Monday from 1st April until end of September. It is beautifully furnished and well equipped, the perfect place for a relaxing holiday in the sun. Its location is ideal for exploring the Western Algarve with its wonderful beaches and towns of historical interest. Distance from Lagos Marina is about 2km from where it is a relatively short walk into the old town. Lagos is a cosmopolitan town, steeped in history and blessed with numerous quality restaurants and bars.

Comments from guests:

We've had such a wonderful holiday and are really sad to be going home. Fantastic place, wonderful apartment .......

The word for 'perfect' in Portuguese is 'perfecto' just about sums up this apartment and complex. I've loved the Algarve for a long time and have now found the perfect place to return next year. Our stay was 'perfecto'!

Just to say a big thank you - great place, fantastic people, super super holiday.......Hope to be back soon.

Thank you ever ever so much for letting us stay in your fantastic apartment. Destino is an amazing place and the guys working there do a fabulous job..........

I just want to thank you for a wonderful stay at your apartment in Lagos, you certainly have the best unit in the whole complex! Apart from the location, the unit is beautifully appointed, it has everything you need to use inside. We truly enjoyed it.

I wanted to let you know we had a brilliant time in your beautiful apartment which is so well equipped. I think yours is perfectly situated for the best view over the pool area. It was very spacious, and just a really lovely place to return to at any time of day. It really was very lovely to stay there, and we all agreed it would be a place we would love to return there if the opportunity arises in the future.

We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed staying at your apartment – it really is very comfortable and well-equipped – you have thought about just about everything! We also liked the photos of you and Judith with what looked like your grand-children - these touches made the apartment extra homely and made us feel very welcome.

About Chris Makepeace

Chris and Judith Makepeace live in East Yorkshire and are now both retired. We bought the apartment in 2004 and have had some wonderful family holidays with our sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren. We treat it as our second home enjoying the facilities of the resort as well as the attractions of Lagos and the Western Algarve. Golfing at the local courses, walking on the wonderful Meia Praia beach as well as the excellent bars and restaurants of Lagos keep enticing us back.

Why Chris Makepeace chose Lagos

We wanted a holiday home in a small condominium with high quality facilities and proximity to beach, town and countryside. The architecture and design of the resort were an immediate attraction and our views over the pool and gardens provide us with a prime position within the condominium.

What makes this apartment unique

We are located on the outskirts of Lagos which is a wonderfully vibrant and interesting town. It's history and character provide a fabulous combination of ancient and modern. The apartment is of a good size comfortably sleeping 6. Guests have always commented that our apartment is the 'best one' on the development because it overlooks the pool and gardens. Many of the others don't have the same outlook.

The apartment is situated within a small condominium comprising 44 apartments and 22 townhouses. Located on the outskirts of Lagos it is well situated for the famous Meia Praia beach (4 miles long). Apart from the many interesting and historical attractions in Lagos it is a relatively short journey to Cape St Vincent, the mountains of Monchique and a variety of towns and villages along the coast. The nearest golf course is Palmares (2km) but there are several others within a short drive.

Gorgeous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

From our first enquiry to our first day back home, Chris couldn't have been any more helpful or kind.

We took advantage of the car service to take us to and from the airport, which was great! Lovely friendly service and they delivered us to the apartment in style and handed us over to Chris's local apartment manager, who again couldn't have been friendlier.

The apartment itself is gorgeous and so well stocked! All the homely touches make such a difference. We really couldn't have asked for more.

If we return to this part of Portugal then this apartment is top of our list!

Thank Chris and your team x

Awesome Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Jardin da Meia Praia. The apartment is beautifully appointed with all the amenities you need and appreciate on a holiday. This is not a rental, you can tell this is a well cared vacation home. Very clean, well decorated with comfortable furniture. The location is oerfect, you have a great view of the pool and the rest of the property. Thank you Chris!

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the moment I made our initial enquiry to when we sadly had to leave the keys and close the door on this beautiful property, was near perfect. Both the owner and the property manager were very helpful and communication was always prompt and informative.

The apartment itself is situated just outside of the main town of Lagos, and a short walk from the beach. It is very well equipped with everything that we needed, and with an 18 month old in tow we required the hire of a cot, high chair and toy box, all of which were very reasonably priced. The complex is beautifully kept; clean, perfectly manicured gardens and friendly staff at 'Destino' pool bar and restaurant. The baby paddling pool was an added bonus as I hadn't realised there was one in addition to the lovely swimming pool.

We very much recommend the apartment, resort and location - perfect for a family holiday and we look forward to visiting again soon - we ran out of time to do all of the lovely activites the Algarve has to offer, so we will most definately be returning at some point in the not too distant future.
