About the property

Luxury Apartment w/pool, large balcony, BBQ & panoramic views of Lagos!


The unique benefits of this beautiful new apartment are location and comfort! The site was strategically chosen to enjoy all the benefits that the town of Lagos has to offer. Set in a private complex with a lovely and tranquil pool & garden area, the apartment is only a few minutes walking distance to the marina, lively town centre, Meia Praia beach, supermarket and train/bus stations. There is free private outdoor parking, Wi-fi internet & cable TV.

Perfect for couples!


Popular for winter stays from November to March. Pricing includes weekly change of linen and towels.


Contemporary décor with an elegant touch, this is a beautiful and extremely well fitted new 1 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment with a modern kitchen and a spacious dining/living area. All rooms lead out onto a large sunny SW facing balcony with scenic views of the lovely town of Lagos!

Equipped with air-conditioning/heating and electric black out shutters – Ideal for winter and summer holidays!

The apartment is set in a premier very sought after condominium with a beautiful outdoor adult and children’s swimming pool equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas and surrounded by an attractive landscaped garden. For convenience there are change room/shower facilities within the pool area.

The apartment is on the second floor with a lift/elevator and stairs and accessed by a video phone entrance system.


Excellent location within a few minutes walking distance to major attractions. A 10 minute walk to the train station and 15 minute walk to the main bus depot. The marina, beach, town centre and Pingo Doce supermarket with restaurant/take-away are within 5-10 minutes walk. There is a local bus stop across the road from the apartment and a tourist train at the marina footbridge to take you along the various beautiful beaches.

You could easily rent without a car if you wanted to just focus on experiencing and exploring Lagos. However, we recommend a car in order to explore the beautiful surrounding areas close to Lagos or further along the Algarve.

Lagos is easy to reach from Faro or Lisbon airport with direct bus routes.


Check-in time is from 4pm

Check-out time is by 10am

Check in and check out times can be flexible during the off season.


Owners will meet all guests on arrival and give tips on how to make the most of their stay in Lagos. Thereafter they give guests space to enjoy their holiday but are only a call or text message away if they need any assistance or information.


If your preferred dates are not available for the Encosta da Marina apartment the owners have other properties for rent:

Meia Praia Garden Apartment - Property No. 829566 - 2 Bed/2 Bath ground floor with garden and pool near Meia Praia beach, town and marina. Perfect for families or two couples!


One of the most popular towns in the Algarve, Lagos is a top holiday destination and has it all! From history to culture, beaches and climate to a lively, easygoing and friendly atmosphere all year round. Steeped in history it was from here that Henry the navigator set sail on his discoveries along with many other Portuguese explorers.

A walk across the Marina footbridge will lead you into the heart of the old town where you will find a very quaint typical Portuguese town with narrow cobbled streets and many shops, bars and restaurants and entertainment. Here you can experience the raw authenticity of Portugal, the daily fish market, the local Tasca, the smell of grilled sardines and seafood toasting on the grill, tiled houses, the clear blue skies and the warm hospitable people.

There are many places of interest to visit such as museums, churches, historical monuments and a mini-zoo for the children. Activities are endless in and around Lagos and include boat trips, dolphin tours, fishing, surfing, diving, kayaking, golf and much more. Lagos is also very popular for hiking and walking trips.


The Algarve, situated on the extreme South of Portugal, offers gorgeous sandy beaches and glorious sunshine nearly all year-round. With around 300 days of sunshine a year and idyllic temperatures averaging 14ºC in winter and 25ºC in summer - and rarely going below 10ºC during winter and reaching as high as 28ºC or 30ºC in July and August.

About Carla & José

Retired, we now enjoy hosting guests at our two holiday homes. We absolutely love Lagos and want our guests to enjoy it as much as we do.

Carla & José purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Carla & José chose Albardeira

Because of the layout and quality build, the large balcony with wide sweeping views of Lagos and its proximity to everything. We love to go for walks on Meia Praia beach or pop over to the marina for an English breakfast. It’s our smallest but favourite apartment!

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The apt was very comfortable, well equipped, very modern and clean. The location was close to marina, grocery store and town of Lagos. Carla & Jose were helpful and responsive. Felt very much “at home” in the apartment. Would definitely stay again during next visit to Lagos. Thank you!

Brilliant holiday in an amazing apartment.

  • 5 of 5

From the initial contact with Carla and throughout our two week stay at the end of October, it really was first class all the way.

Communication was straight forward and any queries were answered within hours. The information pack covered everything from using the dishwasher to recommended restaurants.

The apartment itself is modern, super clean and with a relaxing decor. There really is everything you may need from shopping bags (supermarket is 8 mins walk) to cool box (beach is a 10 minute stroll away), from pantry and toiletry items to a sewing kit.

The kitchen was superbly equipped with a huge array of good crockery, glasses and handy gadgets.

The bed was extremely comfortable and the amount of storage was fantastic. It was a real pleasure to open the wardrobes and find high quality wooden hangers and not a muddle of misshapen bent wire ones.

I thoroughly recommend this apartment and we hope to be back next year.

Wonderful Stay and Condo

  • 4 of 5

Carla and Jose were great to deal with and are very helpful and responsive. They think of every detail. We found the bed a little hard and pillows a little small otherwise we would rate this as 5 star. Pool and complex is very nice. Condo is close to grocery store and walking distance to Lagos town and Marina which is very convenient. We were very happy with our stay here and would definitely recommend. Thank you Carla and Jose for making our stay so special.

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure meeting and chatting to Diana and Bill and we thank you for your review which has given potential guests an idea of what to expect. A pity you didn't enjoy the mattress (orthopedic soft) and pillows. Unfortunately this is an area we cannot please all guests. Some prefer a soft mattress and others a hard one. Keep well, Carla and José

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 6 nights at Carla and Jose's apartment in Lagos. The apartment is absolutely lovely and spotless! Carla was extremely helpful prior to our trip and was quick to respond to any questions we had. Carla & Jose met us at the apartment, showed us around and gave us all kinds of information about the area. The apartment is within walking distance to the supermarket which has everything you could possibly need. The Marina is a short walk away with great bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed the pizza at portfinos! A quick walk over the bridge and you are into the beautiful old town with endless shops, bar and restaurants. You really couldn't ask for a better location!

Wonderful Home from Home Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely relaxing 2 weeks at Carla and Jose's apartment.

The apartment was very clean and well looked after. It was like home from home with everything you needed if you wanted to spend a night in. The area was busy as it was the height of summer and although previous reviews have mentioned noise from the main road, we didn't find this a problem.

Both Carla and Jose met us at the apartment and gave us lots of useful information on what to do and where to eat in Lagos. The welcome pack was a nice extra touch which kept us going until we went to the supermarket (Pingo Doce about a 10 minute walk away), Carla also supplied shopping bags.

There was plenty of wardrobe space and hangers and beach towels were also supplied.

The pool in the complex was welcoming on the hot days, not too deep and just the right temperature to cool off.

The apartment is located 5 minutes across the car park to the marina where there are plenty of places to eat and drink. A further 10 minute walk across the bridge takes you to the town centre again with numerous restaurants and bars (which was very busy for end July/beginning of August, albeit a nice atmosphere).

Meia Praia beach is nice to walk along with the views across to Alvor but parts of it can be very busy during the summer. We found early evening a nice time to walk along it.

We would highly recommend this apartment, both Carla and Jose were friendly and knowledgeable.

If we book another holiday in Lagos we would definitely return to this apartment.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed meeting and chatting with this charming family and and we're glad they enjoyed the apartment and Lagos. The apartment has a priviledged location as its within walking distance to all major attractions in the town. Fitted to ensure complete comfort and convenience, a home where our guests can return to after a day at the beach or out exploring and just chill out and relax either at home or at the pool. The Hodgsons were first class guests and we would welcome them back anytime! Thank you Lorraine, Colin and Joel for such a lovely review giving potential guests an idea of what to expect in peak season!
