An excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

This a really lovely apartment with all mod cons. The apartment is in a great position about 10 mins from Lagos, the beautiful beach and the stunning Marina with its many restaurants and coffee shops, the perfect place to watch the world go by and relax. The apartment is very well equipped with everything we needed, we have already booked a return visit, which says it all.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment. Clean and very spacious and equipped with everything we needed and more. The pool was bigger than it looks on the pictures and we often had it to ourselves. Well located. It was about 10-15 mins walk into Lagos and to the nearest beach which was huge and our kids favourite beach. Lots of lovely restaurants to choose from and we hired a car which we found very useful for exploring the nearby area and day trips etc. Paula and Carlos were both very helpful and friendly and answered queries quickly. We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend and we might even go back!

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment. Very well equipped. Spacious and clean. Located 10 to 15 mins walk from Lagos marina and Meia Praia beach. Would recommend for a family holiday. It suited us perfectly and we had 3 kids under 9. Have come back well rested. In a quiet neighbourhood so got a great nights sleep each night. Will definitely be making a return visit. Thanks to Paula and Carlos for accommodating us and for making our trip so pleasant.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous apartment which was a home away from home and has everything you would ever need. Very quiet and peaceful with lovely views and only a 10 minute walk into the town. The town itself is very pretty with cobbled streets and lots of nice eating places. The owner Paula is lovely and a pleasure to deal with and the Manager Carlos is the same. Definitely recommend x

Lovely, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week this July with 3 teenage girls. Immaculate well equipped apartment with everything you could need. Drive from airport takes about an hour and the directions are easy to follow. We rang Carlos as we left the airport & he was at the apartment to greet us on arrival. Ideal location as peaceful but only 5/10 min walk to busy harbour - so perfect for whole family, as something for all -swimming pool, beaches, nightlife, old town to explore. Also supermarket only 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk and little convenience store a minute's walk away - so all very relaxed and stress free.

Lovely, relaxing and affordable

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I were looking for a peaceful, tidy apartment near to Lagos to stay for 9 days last year. Having not been to the Algarve before, or knowing anyone to give us a recommendation, we spent a few weeks on owners direct and contacted a few people with apartment that were in our budget.

Paula got back to us straight away and was extremely helpful in giving us information and arranging our stay. When we arrived we found the apartment easily with Paula's directions and were met on time by Paula's friend to show us around the apartment.

We were both struck by how well maintained the apartment was. It was clean and had every mod con available. The kitchen and facilities were excellent, living room was nicely designed, large, modern and comfortable to relax in. The balcony was also lovely to relax on in the evening overlooking Lagos and the sea.

The apartment is well located within a nice, easy 15 - 20 minute walk to Lagos town, which takes you through the marina and is lovely. Or it's a 5 min drive.

In all, we felt blessed that we had chosen Paula's apartment to stay in. If we were to return to that part of the world, I wouldn't hesitate to arrange staying at Paula's apartment again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a lovely review, Mike and Ibi. We are just here ourselves enjoying a bit of warmth before facing the British winter and whatever it might throw at us this year! Once again, much obliged for the positive feedback. Paula and Philip

Meia Praia Beach is a wide sweep of golden sand, 4 km long which edges the Bay of Lagos and is 10-15 min walk away or few mins by car. It is spacious, clean and safe for bathing. Sunbeds and umbrellas can be hired for a very reasonable fee.Dotted along it are excellent beach cafes and restaurants serving the best of local produce.Other beaches such as Dona Ana are easily reached by car, bus or a longer walk. The whole coast is full of wonderful beaches and beach activities. Details in info pack.


From Faro Airport it is 74Km and about an hour by car. Or take a taxi from airport into Faro bus or train station. Train or bus from Faro centre to Lagos about 10 Euros. Shuttle services are widely advertised at about £25 pp return. Car not essential but very useful if you want to explore the fabulous sights of the Algarve coast (or go shopping in the huge malls at Albufeira and Portimao!) Internet searches for car hire from Faro Airport should provide plenty of choice. Contact owner for advice.


Lagos Town centre is 10 min walk through the Marina and over the pedestrian bridge. The station is 5 mins walk and the bus station 10 mins. Lisbon is about 280 km away and the train goes there as do the buses - but it's a long journey. All other places of interest are within easy driving distance of Lagos. Cape St Vincent, the most western point of Europe is worth a visit and is about 40 min drive. Luz and Burgau, Alvor and Portimao are all worth seeing.

Further Details:

You might find that you barely have enough time to investigate all that Lagos and its environs have to offer. The restaurants, cafes and pubs are excellent. Food is fresh and not expensive. Wines are wonderful. The local supermarkets stock everything you could need and understand the needs of foreign visitors very well indeed. There are markets held in Lagos or round and about most days. Loule market is easily accessible by train as the station in Loule is right next to the market. Dancing on some Friday nights to Brazilian music in the town centre is fun. For football and other sports fans, there are plenty of very good pubs and cafes with TV coverage of all sports. There is an autdrome close by and easy access to waterparks and zoos. The best way to get the most out of your visit is to do some internet research yourself or use the information pack provided in the apartment. Whatever you do here, you will have a fabulous time!
