About Val

We are both retired professionals and live in the centre of England.

One of us is a keen golfer and loves the variety of courses in this part of Portugal. We both enjoy the beautiful unspoilt scenery of the western Algarve. We have grown up children and grandchildren who love to come and stay and enjoy the area with us.

Val purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Val chose Lagos

Location, location, location!

We bought this property because we love Lagos and the surrounding area. It is a busy working Portuguese town with a charm of its own whatever time of the year you visit. We enjoy driving to the west coast and visiting the fantastic beaches. We have found a wonderful seafood restaurant in the most unspoilt area with wonderful sunsets - highly recommended.

There is always plenty to do whatever time of year you visit and you do not have to use the car at all because of its central location. The apartment itself is home from home with everything you could want to make it an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Our south facing balcony enjoy the sun most of the day.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the light and airy feel to the apartment and its clean and modern look. So easy to look after. Cafe Fresco is so handy for either a lazy breakfast or to take away a bite to eat for lunch on the balcony.

A Fabulous Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This very modern, spacious and well-equipped apartment afforded us the perfect base to explore the beautiful resort of Lagos. The whole family enjoyed the freedom it offered, just a few minutes' walk away from the town centre, bars, shops, marina and the most fabulous restaurants we have ever discovered on holiday! The beach was 15 to 20 minutes walk but well worth the daily trip for a long, unspoiled sandy beach, dotted with sun beds, sun shades and super beach bars.

Great appartment comfy beds

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday from this super very clean well appointed in appartment in Lagos, 3 minute walk into town for shopping and eating out. Lagos is a good base for seeing more of the Algarve and close by Alvor beaches are fantastic. Maid service was excellent and help was nearby if needed from Gail. Beds were the best we have ever had in many years of Continental holidays.

wonderful holiday

  • 4 of 5

Had a fabulous holiday in Lagos in June 2017. Vals apartment had everything we could have ever wanted. We have stayed in Lagos many times and this was one of the best apartments and location. We had 2 very young grandchildren with us, and a later flight on the Saturday we were very pleased that Val let us stay on until the taxi arrived later in the afternoon as no one else was booked in for a few days. We hope to be back again soon and certainly have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

Location

Nearest Airport
55 Miles
Faro airport
Car: not necessary

Lagos has an abundance of separate white sandy beaches - the long and spacious Meia Praia beach (almost 6km long) on the Marina side of town which is a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment, and the smaller but beautiful cliff surrounded cove beaches on the western side, including the Dona Ana beach, considered by many to be the most beautiful and picturesque beach in the whole Algarve. A short 30 minute drive away are the wonderful surfing beaches on the West coast of the Algarve, including Praia do Amado, often proclaimed to be the most popular beach along the West coast.

There is a local supermarket, Pingo Duce, within 3 minutes walk with an ATM machine nearby. Lidl is a five minute walk from the apartment.

Just below the apartment there is the reasonably priced Cafe Fresco serving excellent English and Portuguese food (with free Wi Fi). There are multiple bars and restaurants within a comfortable ten minute stroll.

Popular boat trips run along the west coast all year round and can be boarded just five minutes from the apartment. Lagos is a great place for all kind of water sports and nautical activities whilst just ten minutes away at Luz there is a PADI certified diving school.

There's plenty for the children to enjoy - Lagos Zoo and Marine Zoo are all nearby and the water parks of Aqualand and Slide and Splash provide much fun and enjoyment for both parents and children.

Lagos is ideally located for golfing holidays. Lagos is served by two world class courses, the Palmares course and the Boavista course, both of which are a 5 minute drive from the apartment complex. The main golf season is from late autumn to late spring. Winters are mild and golfers can enjoy warm sunny days on the fairways when their home courses are unplayable.

The Palmares course, a Par 71, is a design masterpiece, which blends a perfect mix of links and inland golf, with magnificent views over Lagos Bay and the Monchique mountains.

The Boavista course provides a variety of attractive and interesting holes. Umbrella pines, blossoming almond, fig, palm and olive trees line the rolling fairways, weaving their way between water hazards and carefully placed bunkers.

Breathtaking views, spectacular scenery and the clear Atlantic Ocean, which is visible from most holes, all combine to make this course a delight for the golfer. There are also other golf courses a short drive from Lagos.

Lagos is a town steeped in history and to many visitors, it is their favourite on the coastline. It has a charm and beauty all of its own. Indeed, it has often been described as the jewel in the Algarve crown. Its historic centre is enclosed in largely fourteenth century walls at the mouth of the Ribeira de Bensafrim. It was from here, inspired by Prince Henry the Navigator's maritime school, that many of Portugal's great explorers set off on their great Voyages of Discovery, including Gil Eanes, who was born in Lagos and whose statue today stands in the shadow of the Town walls.

Lagos became capital of the Algarve in 1577 but much of the town was destroyed in the great 1755 earthquake and Faro took over as capital in 1776.

Today Lagos is a major resort but it remains a living breathing working Portuguese town and is an important services centre, fishing port and local market centre. Its pretty winding cobbled streets are full of outdoor restaurants, interesting shops and has a lively atmosphere whilst during the summer months there are concerts held in the amphitheatre close to the old Town walls.

You can visit the old Slave Market to view an art exhibition or while away some time in Lagos Museum to learn about the colourful past of this charming town.

Within a few minutes walk of Lagos' enchanting historic old town quarter (centro historico); with its fine selection of restaurants offering the best gastronomy of Algarve cuisine, bars and pavement cafes, shops and stylish boutiques, traditional handicrafts shops, all contained within the old 16th Century city walls and a maze of cobbled streets
