It's a beautiful spacious apartment with an ideal location for the Marina , the fabulous beaches and the local town of Lagos.
No car required
This property was a very well maintained, well positioned and very very spacious. The owners were very helpful and never having been tp portugal before we were aprehensive.no need to worry here . Felt very at ease before we left for the airport. Thank you to you both.
We've just returned from a wonderful holiday - made so by this beautiful apartment. My partner and I, and our two children - aged 3 and 6 - stayed here for two weeks.
It's a great location - just a couple of minutes walk to the 4* Hotel Marina Club pool which the kids loved. You've a choice of two beaches within a 15 min walk - Meia Praia or the town beach of Meia Batata which has some lovely rock formations and tunnels (our 6 year old loved walking through these to the neighbouring beaches!) and is handy for lunch in town.
Lagos town centre is 10 minutes over the swing bridge and being in the centre of the marina there's plenty of cafes on your doorstep.
There's also a large very well stocked - and reasonably priced - supermarket a two minute walk behind the apartment which is great for self catering.
The apartment itself is huge and very well equipped with modern furnishings and decor. The balcony has views over the marina lake and to Lagos palm lined roads in the distance. It gets sun from afternoon right until sunset and is a real sun trap. Many of the other balconies only have sun in the early morning!
We hired a car via a broker on moneysupermarket.com which was very competitive and not much more than return taxi transfers. There's a secure basement parking space with the apartment which means the car stays damage free - and cool! But there would be no need for a car hire as the train station is only a few minutes walk away.
I really recommend this apartment!
My friend and I decided to take the children on holiday for our first visit to Portugal - age range 10 to 17! What a joy it was! The apartment was fabulous - clean, spacious and in a very quiet location (no late night noise!) The owners are more than happy to provide you with information on best places to go, directions to the supermarket and the beach etc - things which can often take you a few days to find out for yourself. The area of Lagos is clean, tidy and very safe! We spent our days by the pool and the beach and our evenings strolling round the old town. The children loved it and the boys enjoyed the night life where they always felt safe. We had a wonderfully relaxing time and are already trying to plan a return trip! Next time I think two weeks are in order!!!
The agents & owners were a pleasure to deal with. Everything is as advertised on the website. Apartment was spotless on arrival & a very comfortable base for our holiday. The inclusive use of the Marine Club pool is a distinct advantage. Close to the Marina's restaurants & bars but these are very civilised & produce no noise or negative impact on the apartment. We had a nightly stroll into the old town with its many quality restaurants & suspect many of you will do likewise - its a pleasureable 10 min promenade. Our deposit was returned speedily & overall I cannot recommend the apartment or the owners enough. Please feel free to contact me should you wish further clarity on any aspect of this as a potential holiday apartment. DISCLAIMER I do not know the owners and I'm not related to them in any way whatsoever: they are complete strangers.
This apartment is fabulous with everything you need close at hand. The rooms are very spacious and the apartment was spotless on arrival.
The large terrace got the sun all afternoon and evening so was fabulous for eating and outdoor cocktails.The Marina club pool and facilties are fab as is the beach which is a short walk away.Lagos old town is vibrant and the choice of restaurants is tremendous.
The owners were extremely helpful and gave us all the information we needed. We will definately return!
Schöne großzügige Ferienwohnung in zentraler Lage. Restaurants, historische Altstadt von Lagos etc. alles in Laufnähe. Gute Informationen durch die Vermieter, sehr nett. Schlafzimmer liegen zur Straßenseite, daher etwas laut. Da aber Klimaanlage vorhanden ist, kann man die Fenster schließen und hört nichts mehr.
This beautiful two bedroom apartment is set in the marina where small cafes and shops line the quayside.
Only a short walk over the bridge takes you to the town centre of Lagos where there are a variety of shops and restaurants.
Set at the gateway of the Mediterranean, the coastal town of Lagos was a proud capital of the region in the 14th and 17th Centuries. Present day reveals a charming and carefully preserved seaside resort comprising cobbled streets and historic monuments, enriched by a wide variety of exciting leisure activities.
Only a few minutes walk from the apartment are the train and bus stations both providing an easy and convenient means of exploring the local area for guests choosing not to hire the car.
Long regarded as one of the Algarve’s most picturesque destinations.
