About the Owner

Getting away from it all is something my husband and I look to do whenever we have the opportunity! At home in Huddersfield, work and family keep us very busy, it is our trips abroad which keep us going! Time to escape the hectic schedules & the UK weather and fly away to the sunshine! We love sampling the local food and wine at one of the many great restaurants, exploring the historical town and taking leisurely strolls along the beach. We have always sought to stay in high quality accommodation offering the same levels of comfort that we enjoy at home, I can therefore confidently recommend our holiday home, without hesitation, to those who enjoy the little extras and wish to holiday in comfort and style. Quality accommodation in a great location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time and also to say thank you so much for the use of your beautiful apartment. From the moment we walked in the door we felt at home - it was lovely. We've stayed in lots of private accommodation and your apartment is definitely the best yet. Could not fault anything about it - we had the best time. Your management company do a brilliant job of maintaining it, every room was spotless, all the towels and bedding were fresh and clean - we loved it.

You have definitely thought of everything in terms of furnishings, it was very comfortable, light and airy. The balcony was huge and we enjoyed sitting out there and relaxing in the sunshine. Having Sky t.v. was brilliant - it's always nice to have the choice if you want to sit down and watch abit of t.v. before you go out in the evening and having english channels was great. We always like to stay somewhere which feels like home and your apartment definitely made us feel that.

couldn't have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful, well equipped and I was pleasantly surprised to see it had everything we needed (and more - loved the blender for morning smoothies). The location was great, right on the marina with a short walk to explore the Old Town and very close to the beaches. There is a big super market right across the road which is great to stock up on water etc. It was my first time in Portugal and I loved it!

Beautiful Apartment - Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean, spacious inside and outside. Balcony had lovely view of the Marina. Everything you could think of or need was there. It felt like a real home from home. The pool area was spotless & we noticed that the water in the pool was checked daily by staff. The apartment has sun beds which were very useful as it is almost impossible to find a free sunbed as they seem to be reserved very, very early in the morning. The apartment is very handy to the Marina & a local supermarket was just a minute away with excellent choice of produce. Our contact Corinne was extremely helpful. Arranged transfers to & from airport were excellent with friendly drivers and punctual. We loved Lagos & would recommend the restaurant Mare which is just above the fish market overlooking river - excellent. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Apartment Chic - it was our first trip to Portugal and we hope to return...... soon!

Fantastic Holiday Destination

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a two week stay at this apartment (25th June to 10th July)and I can honestly say it has been one of the best family holidays we have had. The apartment is outstanding, very clean and well maintained, furnished to a very high standard with all the mod cons and very comfortable. Two bathrooms, which my Daughters loved having one to themselves! I must admit I was a little apprehensive booking through Owners Direct and arriving and there being no apartment, but I need not have been worried, everything was as it says on the website. I would mention that the pool looks a lot bigger in the pictures than it actually it, but saying that, it is still a good size and we made good use of it. The apartment is situated a short walking distance from the marina and we ate in the restaurants there regularly. We definitely likes MAR and Lagos Quay for food, but all the places we visited we never once had a bad meal and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. A short 15 min walk to the town centre, again with a good variety of eating places and shops, we loved the little streets with shops dotted along them and couldn't believe they were still open gone 10 pm, the place was buzzing (but this might also have something to do with Portugal still being in the European Football with large TV screen showing the matched and people sat outside watching - it was a great atmosphere - we loved the feel of the place, very relaxed vibe. We discovered a lovely little cove about a 25 minute walk away that we frequented nearly every day, swimming and sunbathing. Lots to do and see, we would recommend a trip out to see the Dolphins, amazing! Overall I would give this more stars than 5. Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, the owner is very helpful and answers any queries very quickly We will definitely be returning.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Superb apartment with all you could ever need. Fabulous pool and gardens. Whether you want to eat in or out there are fabulous restaurants offering a vast choice in foods to cater for all tastes, and a very well stocked supermarket close by. Stayed in Lagos 3 times and this is by far the best accommodation would definitely recommend.

Lagos Marina, Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment for 3 weeks in May/June 2014. It is presented in immaculate condition and maintained to the highest standard. The interior and balcony fittings and very high-end. The owner's management team do an exceptional job and nothing is too much trouble for them, air con, wi-fi and UK tv are part of the overall package. The apartment, which is on the second floor and serviced by a lift, overlooks the pool and part of the marina. It is so convenient for shops, bars, good restaurants and even the bus station and is little more than a casual flat 10 minute stroll round the marina and you find yourself in the Old Town part of Lagos with its little streets, and places of interest. My wife and I loved it so much that while we were there we re-booked the apartment for a further 3 weeks in June 2015. The owner obviously takes great pride in ensuring the accommodation is kept in immaculate condition. Well done Joanne, the 5star rating is fully deserved.

Once we discovered Lagos we knew this was the place for us, beautiful historical town, best beaches in the Algarve, great restaurants and real Portuguese culture, unspoilt by mass tourism! The town planners have carefully protected the historical buildings, hence Lagos has been able to retain its character & charm. The apartment is set in the exclusive Lagos Marina which is THE best location in Lagos, literally a few minutes walk and you can enjoy the waterfront bars of the marina, fabulous restaurants, shops & amazing Lagos old town. Although it is central, the apartment is private & peaceful ensuring your days & evenings are not disturbed. The pool is fantastic and only for the guests of this small complex. A car is not required.

Facilities

From the Owner

We immediately fell in love with the apartment because of its huge balcony with stunning views of the swimming pool, marina and Lagos. Its privileged location as part of the 'award winning' Lagos Marina is a major bonus. We enjoy relaxing on the sun loungers and taking refreshing dips in the lovely pool during the day and then, as the sun goes down, watching the lights of Lagos begin to twinkle from the apartment balcony is a real treat, we then wander into Lagos for an evening meal, a glass of wine and soak up the friendly atmosphere. Furnished and maintained to a very high standard, Apartment Chic is a real home from home, having lots of extras such as BBC/ITV and SKY TV in the lounge and bedrooms, iPod dock and WiFi. The kitchen includes a coffee machine & dishwasher. One of the most sought after apartments on the Dom Manuel Marina complex.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: On your arrival at the apartment, Corinne, our apartment manager will be there to greet you and ensure your holiday gets off to a great start. You can contact Corinne at any time during your stay should you need any assistance. We have furnished the apartment to very high standard and it is very much a home from home. Located on the much sought after Dom Manuel Complex in Lagos Marina (THE best location in Lagos) said to be one of the most beautiful Marina's in Europe, it offers a fine selection of waterfront bars and restaurants. From the Marina it is just a short stroll to the atmospheric old town of Lagos where you can enjoy the charm & history of the Portuguese culture, fantastic food and wine along with year round sunshine. The apartment has full air-con and is fitted with a safe. There is a supermarket to the rear of the complex. A car is not required as all Lagos has to offer is within walking distance.

There is a great supermarket just across the road to the rear of the apartment selling everything you could possibly need! The perfect antidote to the UK weather! A great way to see more of Lagos & its stunning coastline is to jump aboard the Tourist Train. The 'train' departs from the marina, runs along the waterfront promenade, past the old town, up to Praia Dona Ana (one of many beautiful beaches in Lagos) and stops at Ponta da Piedade (stunning coastline) before turning round to go back, hop on and off at will throughout the day.
