Lovely people and excellent apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is immaculate with plenty of room for four adults, and is within walking distance to all the amenities, ie; train station, bus terminal, marina, and the large choice of restaurants in the town. Neysan and Lena were very helpful during the booking process, and Yacine and Maria who are two of the nicest people you could meet looked after us very well and made sure we had an excellent holiday. Thank you.

This 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment is immaculate Very spacious, probably too much as there were only the two of us. It is in an ideal location near to town and a short walk over to the marina. There is a lot to do around here, various restaurants and bars on the doorstep. Swimming pool was fab and most of the time we had it to ourselves for most of the morning. The owners and Maria could not do enough for you. Would definitely book this again. Thanks for a fab holiday. Cheers

This is a very high quality holiday apartment. Well finished and ideal for families to explore Lagos and the Algarve. Aircon throughout, nice pool, close to both the Marina and the old town full of bars and eateries. it is finished to a much higher standard that normal holiday properties.

Neysan, Maria and Yacine are all very helpful and will do everything possible to ensure you have a great stay. We greatly enjoyed our time in Patio Do Covento and have no hesitation in recommending highly.

Top marks all round!

There is also Praia De Luz which is a 10 min drive and the wonderful Salema which is a 20 min drive. For those wishing to surf, you can also visit Sagres with its beaches (30 min drive). You also have the Porto De Mos beach which is a 10 min drive. We are aware of about 16 beaches near Lagos!


The apartment is about 50 mins from Faro Airport. Lisbon Airport is about 2 hours 30 mins away. Car hire is available at both airports and is recommended. The main bus station is about a 2 min walk from the apartment and if you wish to travel by train, the station is about a 5 min walk. We would however recommend you hire a car so that you can visit the many wonderful places nearby.


Lagos is perfectly located for you to visit the surrounding areas. Sagres and it's historic fort is a 30 min drive. You can visit the old fishing villages along the coast, west towards Cape St. Vincent. You can drive inland for a nostalgic glimpse of the rural past. Barao Sao Joao is the largest village.

The apartment is within 5 mins walk of two supermarkets. The old town centre is also 5 mins walk. There you can find local shops and restaurants. There are many coffee shops selling wonderful Portuguese pastries. The town centre is full of wonderful restaurants with many providing the Portuguese speciality, seafood and grilled meats. There are also abundant number of bars. There are also a large number of banks with cash machines. Lagos has a famous fish market and it is worth seeing. There is also a long promenade which is wonderful for all the family. There is bridge from the promenade which crosses over the inlet and leads you to the marina with its shops, restaurants and bars. There are many outdoor activities for everyone. They include deep sea fishing, surfing, Dolphin watching, water ski, kite surfing, windsurfing,para sailing, sailing and golf. There are also 2 water parks (25min drive) at Lagoa Aqualand at Alcantailha. There is Zoo marine near Guia which is a great ocean theme park and shall provide great entertainment and education for children and adults. The shows and exhibitions feature Dolphins, Seals, Sharks etc. Further afield near Quarteira there is the Aquashow water park which has a huge aquatic roller coaster and water slides. Lagos Zoo is also nearby and located at Barao Sao Joao (north west of Lagos). Alternatively you can go on a cycling or walking tour of the beautiful Serra De Monchique. If you are minded you can also go Scuba-Diving or snorkeling.
