About John Griffiths

Having lived in Portugal most of my adult life & loving this part of the Algarve, especially Lagos, Porto de Mós was the obvious choice as it still retains its typical Portuguese charm and as this is where I live it seemed the right choice to provide high quality holidays right here

John Griffiths purchased this apartment in 2008

Why John Griffiths chose Lagos

Best Location in Lagos!

  • 5 of 5

This luxury apartment offered everything we needed. The photos are very accurate. It was clean, very spacious and walking distance to the beach. We were a group of 4 friends and enjoyed the large living area, kitchen and decks. You can walk to 2 beachside restaurants and rent chairs or a cabana. Perfect spot to relax. I would defiantly stay here again.

Fantastic find!

  • 5 of 5

I thought this apartment looked too good to be true, but it was fabulous and John made the whole booking / arrival process very painless.

The apartment was spotless and you do get a real feeling of calm and getting away from it all, with the pool and surrounding area being so quiet.

The beach is only a couple of mins walk from the apartment and has 2 restaurants, of which Antionio's quickly became a firm favourite... supurb monkfish kebabs and great waiters. Lagos is a very manageable walk into town although up a hill, but we coped fine with a buggy and taxi'd it back no problem.

We will definitely be back...

Holiday Villas in Porto de Mos Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We are a young couple with our first baby and so this year we decided to choose vacation in Algarve. But we wanted something really quiet with beach or pool so we can relax and be all together and enjoy first newborn! We look for apartments but they weren't cosy enough or with the requirements necessary to be with a baby.

So we found Porto de Mos holiday villas... just one word to describe everything: Wonderful!

Beautiful apartment, warm welcomme, full equiped, brand new, swimming pool, beach really nearby!

We just loved it! We certainly recommend it, and if we decide to spend some time in Algarve again, Porto de Mos will be the first option for sure!

Apartamento en Porto de Mos

  • 5 of 5

Hemos disfrutado de unas estupendas vacaciones en Porto de Mos. El apartamento, situado en un bonito entorno, disponía de unas excelentes vistas, a escasos minutos de la playa a pie. Nuevo, amplio y bien equipado ( a excepción de una cafetera) , aunque todavía no disponía de servicio de recogiida de basura en la urbanización. El ambiente muy tranquilo . Altamente recomendable.

Porto de Mos 2 Bedroow Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment in October 2009 with my Partner and her Son. The apartment was spotless and perfect if you're looking for peace and quite within easy walking distance of the beech, approx 2 mins walk. Excellent restaurant on the beech, Antonios, with superb food and service. The 12 apartment complex has a good size pool with plenty of space. The fixture and fittings are of an excellent standard and are both practical and very comfortable. I would highly recomend this area of Portugal as well as these apartments. If you are used to 5 star hotels then this is for you.
