'Just to say thank you again for the rental of your beautiful apartment at Alba Vilas. We really did have a healthy, chilled out Christmas. The children surfed everyday and I was swimming everyday. The weather was good and we came back with a tan on our faces. The apartment and gardens were really lovely and the directions spot on' (first of several stays).

Nigel Weekes - End of June/July 2007

'Just a note to say how very much we enjoyed using your lovely apartment. We really did have an excellent holiday and it very much lived up to our expectations. It was perfectly presented and beautifully clean'.

Steve & Bev Connell - August 2007

'Just to let you know we had a great time in Portugal. The apartment was excellent, very well fitted and extremely well located. Lagos itself was lively, bustling, but very safe with a huge number of very nice bars and restaurants'.

A cot and portable highchair are available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful week at Alba Vilas. It is in a great location within walking distance of the beach, Lagos town, marina and a well stocked supermarket and is situated in a peaceful neighbourhood. You can relax on the sunny private terrace with great seaviews or lounge by the pool with its well manicured gardens. The apartment was spotless and has everything you need for your holiday. The kitchen was very well equipped. We had a wonderful relaxing week and would definitely recommend.

Christmas

Thank you. The rental of your beautifully furnished and fully equipped apartment at Alba Vilas was superb.

We really did have a healthy, chilled out Christmas. The children surfed everyday and I was swimming everyday. The weather was good and we came back with a tan on our faces. The apartment and gardens were really lovely and the directions spot on.

Once again thank you and Happy New Year.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we were in the Algarve and didn't know what to expect at the beginning. I have to say that me and my husband fell in love with the area and have booked ourselves to go back now in three weeks. I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough, it is spacious, clean and very well equipped with everything you might need. The wifi is fast and reliable and we were able to watch tv on the computer as there was only english channels on tv. We really felt at home and didn't want to leave. Jan the owner is very nice and she will answer any questions you might have regarding the apartment and location. I almost forgot to say that you can even see the sea from the sofa in the living room! Many thanks Jan, we will be back again.

Great pool & location

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment in a small complex. It shares the pool with about 10 other apartments so its never too busy. Being on the ground floor the kids could just walk from your patio to the pool across the grass. Waking up every morning to views of the sea from the patio was a real highlight. You can easily walk into Lagos & we managed fine without a car - taxis seem happy to collect you with food from Lidl.

Wonderful Appartment perfectly located in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Lagos for over 10 years now and always rented apartments there and I have to say this was the best we ever rented. It is beautifully located and super quiet but close to the city center and the sea (has a great sea view). The apartment is very nice furbished and has everything what you need. The pool is accessible thru the garden door which can be locked which was important for us having a 3 year old. Thanks Jan & Nick for the great time. We will come back. Markus & Claudia

Owner's Response: Thank you Markus & Claudia, I’m sure people will find the review of your 3 week stay with us very helpful. Alba Vilas is also good for children as the apartment is all on one level and there are 2 large terraces, one South facing and the other North, so they can enjoy being outside in sun or shade. We look forward to welcoming you all back next year. Jan & Nick

Would return every year!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at Alba Vilas and as expected it was as lovely as our first time!

The apartment spacious & airy & is in such a peaceful location, yet close enough to walk to the beach, marina or town.

I don't have a negative thing to say on our stay, maybe just that 1 week this time was not enough!

IMMACULATE, PEACEFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this immaculate, spacious and comfortable apartment. Dinis was very helpful. We particularly enjoyed sitting outside in the morning watching the sun come up and listening to the sound of waves on the beach. Lagos has a great selection of restaurants. Thank you Jan for recommending Don Toro for steaks - so good we returned for more. As it was our first visit to the Algarve, we travelled around a lot and we liked what we saw. We found the cool box and ice packs very useful. The weather was incredibly good, with lots of sunshine and hitting 35oC towards the end of the week. The only downside was coming back to dull grey skies at home.

Car: not necessary

Lagos is one of the most beautiful and historic towns on the Algarve. With picturesque cafes and cobbled streets it can be reached on foot in 15/20 minutes. The main promenade is lined with exotic trees and runs alongside the inlet and Marina which is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. From here you can take trips to see the dolphins and grottoes; dive; sail and fish. There is an excellent choice of restaurants, bars and shops in both areas with plenty of night-life during the summer months. Meia Praia is the nearest beach at a 10/15 min walk and here you will find a variety of restaurants plus a water sports centre. This beautiful Blue Flag beach has 4km of golden sand and the restaurants dotted along it offer a wide menu + fresh fish and local wines. With the new Algarve Race circuit plus Palmares, Boa Vista and Penina Golf Courses nearby; the Monchique mountains and coastal routes for walking/cycling; and both Zoomarine and Aqualand a 30 min drive, there is something for everyone.
