About the property

Panoramic views, Public Pool close, Marina, Beach and Old Town...no car needed

Best Location in Lagos: 5 minutes walk to the beach, marina and old-town. A large town-house with spectacular private terraces overlooking the quiet beach at Meia Praia in historic Lagos. Walking distance to all amenities including the pool, beach, marina and old town. Its the perfect spot for a relaxing week in the sun.

Check out our reviews - most people give us 5 star ratings for Location, Value and Quality.

Both new-built villas are equipped to the highest standard with air-conditioning, TV & DVD, BBQ and all the space you need to relax with friends, host a dinner party or just spend some quiet time with the family....the villas even a table-tennis table for the kids!

The Master bedroom and living rooms have private balconies and spectacular sea-views and luxury bathrooms with hotel-quality towels and linen.

The great attraction is not just the chic design or the ample space...the clincher for most people is the beach at Meia Praia! 5 miles of perfect, soft sand with a gentle slope into the ocean. That's where most people spend their days and evenings...the perfect setting for the perfect holiday.

There are 4 championship golf couses close by: Boa Vista is a 5 minute drive away

Pineara is a 3 minute drive away

Plamares is a 15 minute drive away

The courses at Villamoura are a 30 minute drive. The courses at Quinta de Lago are a 40 minute drive...there's lots to do for the non-golfer too. You are a short drive from water parks, horse riding, sailing, micro lighting and water sports too.

Beach activities: The properties are moments walk from Meia Praia with its 5 miles of soft sandy beach. Set back from the gentle sloping sands are several beach bars and cafes....the more adventurous can try their hand at kite-surfing, canoeing, take a dingy-sailing course or even try parascending....many people prefer to just sit and enjoy the beautiful surrounds..with the occasional dip to cool off!

Great beaches, great food, lots to do and see: With one of the best beaches in the Algarve just 7 minutes walk away....the town just 10 minutes walk away and watersports and sightseeing on your doorstep....you will have a fantastic holiday in Lagos

Very well located, spacius and clean

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 9 people (2 families) staying in this lovely apartment. It is very well situated only 8 mins walk to the beach, 15 to the old town of Lagos and very close to all amenties including restaurants, bars and grocery stores as well as the marina and the train station. We loved the location. The apartment is very spacious and nicely decorated. There is a great rooftop terrace where we enjoyed some nice evening cocktails. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Paul was very easy to deal with and reliable.

Thank you for a lovely holiday!!!

Large villa in great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our Canadian group (three couples) recently spent a week at the villa. The pictures tell the story, the villa is large and multi-leveled - it is an ideal set-up for a large family or multiple couples. We enjoyed the roof top terrace for drinks in the evening and sun in the afternoon. Once we figured out the path that is not far from the villa and provides a shortcut to the marina, we realized how close everything is. The marina has good restaurants and is just a five minute walk, from there you can walk to a grocery store (another five minutes or so) and then into Old Town where there is lots of shopping and wonderful restaurants - such a beautiful place. The beach is close - about a five or ten minute walk - the two beach bars are a great spot for dinner or just to get a drink while you are on the beach - the beach is beautiful! We enjoyed our stay very much - Lagos is central and has a lot to offer - we hope to return!

Beautiful, clean, well facilitated

  • 5 of 5

Incredible villa, very clean, great kitchen, good bbq and hot tub.

If I was to be very picky, the lift was broken and some of the towels were slightly stained, but they were plentiful and clean so can't complain.

Very good experience overall. Would recommend.

Owner's Response: Hi Folks Thanks for the great review. We do our best to make your holiday perfect. I'm glad you enjoyed the beach and got so much use from the BBQ. One small point for other guests: the lift isn't broken and we don't advertise it as a feature. It's just too expensive to operate and insure so we decommissioned it entirely. Thanks again for the great review Paul.

Incredible Family Stay in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

We rented both a villa and an apartment in honor of my husband’s 50th birthday and we couldn’t have chosen a better place to the stay. Our group included 7 adults and 2 teenage boys. The boys loved the ping pong table in the garage in addition to the boogie boards and other athletic gear that was available. The apartment was on the first floor and had great access to the pool. One night we had a barbeque out on the patio of the apartment and it was great. Both the villa and apartment we’re incredible, the water pressure was great, tons of hot water, comfortable beds and tons of space. The view of the villa balconies was also amazing, you could see both the beach and the town. At night the town was beautiful to look at. The location was also one of the best parts, you could walk to town or the beach in about 15 minutes. Tons of restaurants and things to do in town. We stayed a week and wish we would have stayed another week. Paul was great to work with and logistics all went smoothly. A couple of cons – we could have used a few more tails or mid-week towel service. One towel per person for 7 days in a place without a dryer was difficult. The elevator in the villa also did not work, so we needed to carry our luggage up two floors in the villa (but I guess that is what teenage boys are for). Other than that would not have changed anything.

Owner's Response: Hi Folks That's for the rave review! I'm glad you liked the location and got to use all the amenities, the balconies and BBQ. The towel service is a great idea. I'll add that to the booking form. Please come back and see us again Paul

Great location - lovely accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five (3 kids under 12) and we have just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay in the Villa. The location is excellent - 10 min walk to the beach ( a 5km beach with great sand), 5 mins to the Marina and 10/15 to the old town. It is a quiet location, especialy in the evening but we liked that.

The pictures of the villa dont do it justice, it is spacious, warm and with 3 balconies, including a full roof one, it works for any time of the day. At the end of a busy day it was much appreciated that the beds were extremely comfortable which makes a big difference and has proper double beds rather than finding two twins pushed together. On the odd wet day we had it was great that the kids (and myself) were able to play table tennis.

We engaged with the owner who was a gentleman and extremely helpful and responded quickly to all queries - in addition, the local agent could not have been more helpful or responsive to requests.

Couldn't recommend it more.....

Owner's Response: Wow! What a great review. You're right, I need to take better pictures. The ones I took with my blackberry aren't doing the place justice. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and please come back. Paul

Location and apartment are great.

  • 4 of 5

Great location, walking distance of Porto de Mos beach. Apartment was clean and fully equipped (kitchen, hair dryer, towels and beach towels, wifi), very nice views from 3rd floor. Surrounding area is beautifully landscaped. Only downfall was the construction of another building nearby, could hear noise during business hours. We were gone most of day, but for people who are looking for peaceful location, ask first if construction is still ongoing.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 78 Kilometres Nearest Train : Lagos at 1 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22 at 3 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 300 Metres Car: not necessary

Luxury family or golfing holiday venue close to 4 championship golf courses, a busy marina with sailing, canoeing, water skiing and within easy reach of the water parks. The historical old-town of Lagos and its surrounds are the perfect location for a family getaway or a fun-filled break. Relax on Meia Praia's 5 kilometres of soft sandy beach, play volleyball outside Bahia beach-bar or snooze the day away under the sunshades by the lifeguard station. You can always be busy doing something....or doing nothing!

A holiday in Lagos has it all. Families return for the care-free lifestyle, the gently sloping beach and the paddling pool (for the apartment users only). The gentle breeze means it doesn't get too hot and keeps the mosquitoes at bay. Air-conditioning throughout means nobody gets too hot. After a day on the beach, sailing or playing golf, enjoy a jacuzzi or power shower before strolling into town or to the marina for some of Portugal's famous Algarvian food.

Other Activities: kite surfing, micro lighting, water park, sailing courses

Golf: 3 championship golf courses within 15 minutes drive
