Apartment in Lagos Marina, Western Algarve - Situated On Marina Between The Beach And The Old Town
- English, Spanish, Portuguese
peter Knight I came to Portugal in 1983 for one year...to grow Iceberg lettuce for Marks and Spencer...... and i am still here!! I started a large farming enterprise which is now owned by Vitacress Salads and then started my own farming business called Camposol. We farm 1,500 acres of sand land on the Atlantic coast near the town of Vila Nova de Milfontes which is 1 hours drive North of Lagos. We grow vegetables for export throughout Europe in the Winter months and turf grass for amenity and sports use. We have supplied nearly all the main football clubs including Real Madrid and Barcelona. Portugal is a great place to live and Lagos a super place for a holiday as it caters for tourists while still keeping the characteristics of a Portuguese town. Have a great Holiday!

Beautiful apartment with great marina view and everything you could want
Very comfortable and relaxing
Also felt very friendly and secure
Great to explore Lagos and surrounding towns on the Algarve
Could not recommend this place highly enough. Ideal location, mins walk from the train station as well a short walk into the old city. Shopping very convenient, supermarket within easy walking distance as well. The apt. is situated in the marina which offers an array of restaurants and a few sports bars. Lagos offers so much charm and history as well as many outdoor restaurant offering local cuisine. Nearby bus terminal made it very convenient to travel to adjacent communities. Upon our arrival we were met by a smiling Carlos who showed us around the apt. and explained where everything was and how it functioned. Gave some tips on restaurants and points of interest we might want to visit. The apt. was spotless just like in the pics. We had a minor issue with the shower head the next morning and was dealt with immediately by Carlos while we were out exploring the old town. Our two week stay was most relaxing. The weather was very comfortable with only a few days of cloud cover . We enjoyed our time in Lagos so much we plan to return next year.
The apartment is located at the marina in Lagos with a good selection of bars and restaurants nearby and a fabulous view of the marina from the spacious first floor balcony.
At the time of our booking ( February) the balcony, because of its orientation (North- East), only gets the sun when it’s at its weakest for about an hour and a half at the end of the day which was disappointing. (This may improve later in the year as the sun’s position gets higher and sets further west?)
The apartment is a good size but could do with some upgrading (including some of the furnishings) which we understood from the owner’s agent would start shortly with a new bathroom.
We set up the TV with HDMI cables to get Sky Sports etc from our own Now box which worked well although there was bass vibration (possibly from how the TV had been fitted to the wall bracket).
An issue with the (new) boiler was dealt with very promptly and the apartment was cleaned and the sheets/towels changed after the first week.
Overall a good rental property.
We totally enjoyed our 2 week stay. The marina location is perfect. Beach, restaurants, grocery, and nightlife are all within walking distance. Nice patio to just sit and watch the boats. We toured the entire Algarve by car, and are glad we chose Lagos, and this apartment as our home base. When we come back we would definitely stay here again!
Lovely condo and great location
The location and view of the marina is beautiful. Good restaurants close and the town is fun. The owner was very attentive and a genuinely nice person. We loved this place and want to come back.
I could not recommend this property more. It was everything my wife and I had hoped for. The property itself, the views, that balcony, the proximity to the train station, the beaches, the grocery store, the town of Lagos and the communication...it was all perfect. Thank you for making this stay so special.
