About the property

Apartment in Lagos, Algarve - Great Location Close To Town And Beach

Casa Annalise is a new 2 bedroom apartment in an excellent position very close to both the town centre of Lagos and to Meia Praia beach, and within easy walking distance of the Marina, Pingo Doce supermarket and all local amenities. The apartment has a large veranda, with plenty of room for dining and sunbathing, while inside has air conditioning throughout (heating in the winter) and is spacious and well equipped. The nearest beach is the famous Meia Praia, 4 miles of spotless white sand, just a 15 minute walk away, and there are numerous other beautiful beaches within a few minutes drive. Lagos town centre has plenty of top quality restaurants, bars and shops, and is only a 10 minute walk. Golfers have the choice of 6 golf courses within 20 minutes drive, including Penina, which hosted the Portuguese Open in 2006, and Palmares with its mix of links and parkland golf.

About Les Wightman

Hi, we are the owners of Casa Annalise: Paul & Zoe French, and Les & Mary Wightman (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 its 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 2006

Why Les Wightman chose Lagos

We bought Casa Annalise in 2006 and have had many happy holidays here. This apartment greatly appealed to us as a very modern and elegant 'town' apartment. We like the big kitchen and two bathrooms, the large veranda, the landscaped surroundings and the proximity to the marina and town centre.

Paul and Zoe now have two small children and this 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 beautiful, historic, and very well-ke

What makes this apartment unique

Casa Annalise at Varandas da Sao Joao is close to the beach at Meia Praia, the Marina and Lagos town centre where there is another beach and many restaurants and shops. The supermarket Pingo Doce is within walking distance. There is a new municipal swimming pool complex across the road from Varandas da Sao Joao, with fantastic facilities for swimming, working out and relaxing.

Pictures don't do it justice! Really lovely.

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed here with my partner and we both loved it. The apartment is very spacious and fully equipt with everything we needed. The supermarket was just a short walk but it was a little further into Lagos centre than I thought but the walk is nice and pleasant. The apartment really is fantastic and I would definitely stay again. And Les was very helpful once we arrived in Portugal and was extremely quick to answer any questions about the property.

Thank you for such a lovely visit!!

This is the second time we have stayed at this property and we would go back as often as we could. The place has everything and is very close to the centre of Lagos well worth it.

We stayed at this beautiful apartment for the month of Sept 2016,

It was very clean and had everything one required for the perfect holiday.

Fantastic balcony and handy to all amenities. Very close to supermarkets and beaches etc.

Was exactly as stated by the owners who we found to be excellent and very helpful.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Nearest beach is Praia de Camilo, 5 minutes at most. The bars at the Tulip Roundabout cannot be much more. We'll have to see about moving them closer next time! Mary & Les

The owner and the agent we're very helpful. Onto the apartment well this was very nice large well maintained and a very nice position overlooking Lagos on one side it's the old town and the other side is a very modern part the best bit is in the middle a marina very nice in the winter so it must be even better in the summer.

If anybody asked me about Lagos I would recommend they stay at this apartment.

Nearest Airport
70 Kilometres


The fabulous Meia Praia beach is just a 15 minute stroll from the apartment and is dotted with great beach bars and restaurants. Praia Dona Ana beach is 5 minutes drive away, here you can swim in calm waters and is an ideal location to explore the famous grottoes. Driving west, you pass the busy beach at Luz, the quieter fishing villages of Burgau and Salema and numerous wild and deserted beaches on the West coast.


Faro Airport is 80km from Lagos and a car is recommended to explore Lagos and the surrounding area.

Further Details:

The Algarve has great places for children with water parks like Slide and Splash and Aqualand. Zoomarine is a sea world park where you can swim with dolphins and Lagos Zoo (just a few miles out of town) is fun for younger children.
