About the property

Apt in Praia Dona Ana, Lagos - Close To Town, 3 Beaches And 4 Top Golf Courses

This T1 apartment has one bedroom and one spare room "occassional bedroom" and is located on the Pont de Piedade at Praia Dona Ana, the best beach on the Algarve. It is also close to many more great beaches. ‘Casa Margharita’ is on the ground floor of a small block of 10 with private walled and hedged gardens, a shared swimming pool with children's pool, and car parking immediately adjacent. The apartment is also close to four top golf courses: Palmares, Penina, Boa Vista and Parque da Floresta. It is a very peaceful location, yet within walking distance to Lagos town centre. There are three mini-markets, a bank with a cash machine and many bars and restaurants including a Chinese takeaway and pizzaria, all within five minutes walk. Praia Dona Ana is two minutes walk, Lagos town centre is 10 minutes walk or three minutes drive.

About Les Wightman

Hi, we are the owners of Casa Margharita: Paul & Zoe French, and Les & Mary (Zoe's parents). Paul is a company director, Zoe is a graphic designer and mum of two, Les has recently retired from a busy international construction career and Mary is supermum/granny/cook. We have lived and worked all over the world, but we are now based in England and love the Algarve as it's so easy to get to, is perfect for families, has such friendly people, great weather and some of the world's best beaches!

Les Wightman purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Les Wightman chose Lagos region

We bought Casa Margharita in 2003 and have had many happy holidays here. We had a good feeling as soon as we walked in to this apartment, and it seems that many of our clients feel the same as we get a lot of repeat bookings - we have to plan our own holidays over a year in advance or we wouldn't be able to go!

Paul and Zoe now have two children and the apartment has proved perfect for family holidays too.

We love Lagos because it has a beautiful town and harbour, many amazing beaches - even one in town, and over 400 (apparently!) restaurants to choose from. Its easy to get to from Faro airport, just under an hour. There are so many things to do, whether you are with children or not, or you can just totally relax.

The people are very friendly, and the town is very well-kept.

What makes this apartment unique

Casa Margharita is very close to three beaches, including Praia Donna Ana, one of Europe's top ten, a stunning beach with golden cliffs and warm, calm waters just a few minutes walk away. Praia Camilo is similar and even closer, and has a great fish restaurant; and Porto da Mos is close by, a huge white sandy beach with two lovely beachfront restaurants.

You can walk into town easily, through the castle walls. There are plenty of shops and facilities nearby, although the apartment itself enjoys wonderful peace and quiet being away from any main roads.

Peace, quiet and loads of sun

  • 5 of 5

As my husband has some difficuties walking this apartment suited us very well as its on the ground floor and only a few steps from the pool. Its clean and well maintained with plenty of what you need in a holiday home. I would sugest unless you are very able a car is essential for getting to the Supermarkets, Lagos Town and the Meia Praia beach area. And of course, to visit all the surrounding countryside and not just the beaches. We have already booked to go back mid-September when it will be slightly cooler. Many thanks to Les and Mary who are ever ready to help.

Just brilliant, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Margharita.

Absolutely loved it what a great place for me the perfect location nice and quiet with a short walk to 2 amazing beaches and once you find your feet walking into Lagos only takes 15 mins (if we can do it anybody can we have a 5 & 6 year old) great shops and so many restaurants it’s hard to decide. The apartment is a great size and very well equipped, I think its position in the block is the best by far. The owners were very helpful with any of our questions or requests. The best family holiday we’ve had we’d love to come back again. Thanks Les just brilliant. Dean.

Great property in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Great property and well maintained! Our family of 4 had a great time in Lagos. This was a great location near beautiful beaches and town center. We had a car so it was easy to get around.

Apartment close to picturesque beach

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice stay in Lagos, a very nice town with many restaurants and small shops. From the apartment it took 20 mins to walk down to the old town. We could walk to the closest beach, Praia do Camilo. Very nice.

The apartment was OK, but the standard was somewhat old and worn. It was a nice patio and we used it for breakfast. Easy parking just outside.

It was hot when we were there in July and we missed air condition in both bedrooms. The AC in the living room was not enough during night. We were a little bit surprised that there were no dishwashing liquid, no soap in the bathroom and no toiletpaper. Anyway we appreciated the hosts use of the Owners Direct web/app to it’s full extent, there we had all details about the property, all payment details and all our communication in one place.

Owner's Response: The money we spent on internal redecorations this year was wasted on Truls! We put great emphasis on our local managing agent being available to respond and help with anything while in Lagos - a quick 'phone call could have saved the day! Les & Mary.

Great location, well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Lagos. The apartment is in a great location with two beautiful beaches within 5-10 minutes walk. A third beach is only a 20 minute walk away. Supermarket and a selection of great restaurant within a 7 minute walk also.

The apartment itself is well equipped and very spacious. We were surprised just how big it was! The complex is well looked after and the pool is an added bonus.

We survived the week without hiring a car and managed sufficiently on foot and public transport (even without a pram for our three year old!). This could be tricky at the height of summer if you're not accostomed to hot conditions - just something to bear in mind. Taxi to/from town only about 8 euros.

Would definitely recommend to others and look forward to a return visit soon.
