About Linda Northridge

We are a family of 3 with a son of school age. We live in Ightham, Kent England. Both my Husband and I run our own businesses so holidays are very important to us. We have travelled to both Northern and Southern Portugal and love the country.

Linda Northridge purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Linda Northridge chose Meia Praia

We first visited the Algarve 12 years ago, and took a day trip to Lagos. We instantly fell in love with the town and all it has to offer. So many great restaurants, excellent water sports, superb shops to find the perfect present to take home. The following year we came out and bought this great apartment, ideal for our son as there is a play area and tennis courts both of which he enjoys plus the fabulous pool that he spends most of the day in. We can enjoy the superb gardens relax in the sun and early evening have a cocktail at Destino's restaurant. We chose this apartment as it is close to the centre of Lagos however far enough away to have a really relaxing holiday.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is fully air conditioned together with underfloor heating. We have a high-speed, fibre broadband service within the apartment so for work or pleasure and your children’s demands for internet access! Excellent facilities are available, we also have a 42" smart TV. In the peak months, there is a superb restaurant on site providing excellent food and drinks all day and evening. There are plenty of sun loungers around the pool however, if you prefer the beach this is only 5 minutes away and is one of the longest sandy beaches in Portugal. If you enjoy golf we are only 5 to 20 minutes’ drive from a multitude of golf courses and we can introduce to a local golf society for fun, reduced fee golf. Lagos town is a few minutes by car where there are many restaurants, bars, shops and a large marina which offers plenty of water sports and boating activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A pleasant spacious apartment that easily slept 6, on a lovely well maintained complex. Very nice restaurant and helpful staff. The children had a lovely time -would recommend.

Excellent apartment in a beautiful compound.

The accommodation was of a very high standard and was complete with everything needed to enjoy a care free and comfortable stay, it was very clean and well maintained. There were stacks of clean towels and bedlinen and the washing machine and dishwasher were an added bonus. The apartments are easily accessible but at all times felt very safe especially for us as we had children who were able to play and enjoy the facilities without worry. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone who has a family and is looking to enjoy an easy going luxurious holiday.

A fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very spacious and well kept, and was a minutes walk from the swimming pool. The very long and sandy beach was a 15 minute walk and the sea was great to swim in. Very easy to get into town via a taxi and likewise the supermarket was a few minutes in a taxi. A great place for families wanting a relaxing but fun holiday.

Owner's Response: We are glad that the apartment met the families expectations. Although the complex is outside of Lagos it is close enough to enjoy everything Lagos has to offer in the way of resturants, watersports and shopping.

Sehr gepflegte Anlage!

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Schöne Wohnung mit allem Komfort zu einem sehr akzeptablen Preis. Leider hatten wir an diversen Tagen ziemlichen lästigen Baulärm durch Renovierungsarbeiten im Nachbargebäude. Insgesamt waren wir aber sehr zufrieden! 4 Sterne sind gerechtfertigt.
