About the property


Our two apartments are available together or separately in the pretty town of Lagos - a town rather than a 'resort', a town with a wonderful Marina, fabulous beaches and safe sea - a town steeped in history. A place of cobbled streets, pretty square and ancient town walls, and a town in easy reach of some of the best golf in the region. The apartments are one above the other and can either be used separately, sleeping four or can be opened up through a lockable staircase to provide room for larger groups, giving plenty of social space but with the privacy of your own bedrooms on different floors. Each sitting room has two balconies, maximising the sun throughout the day and evening. The complex is of medium size with well kept gardens surrounding the large pool. It is located in a quiet part of Lagos but within five minutes walk to the pretty Marina, with lovely cafes and restaurants. The beach and town are also within easy walking distance.

About The Owner

Hi thanks for looking at our apartments. My name is Cheryl and I live in England with my wonderful hubby Mark, son, Jack and daughter Macy. I work part-time with Mark and when we both get the chance we love to travel. Portugal being a favourite destination of ours hence buying our two apartments Sun and Sky.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose Albardeira

Why did we buy our apartments - that's quite simple, it's located in one of our favourite holiday places and has everything we need within walking distance. Lagos still has such a wonderful fishing village charm about it, the beaches are beautiful for the children to play on and the restaurants serve such wonderful food. The marina is breath-taking and there are ample activities available for everyone. What we love most about our SUN and SKY apartments is the fact that we can open them up to accommodate our large family. With the interconnecting staircase we've had plenty of memorable family holidays as well as a nice quiet holidays just for the two of us!

What makes this apartment unique

We have tried to cater for all your needs in our apartments, so if you want to stay in and cook for the night then you have all the kitchen utensils you need to do this. We have WIFI and also a TV that shows a variety of English channels - perfect for a night in! The marina is only a five minute walk away from SUN/SKY so you have everything on your doorstep. We also have a very friendly agent on hand who is based opposite our apartments and is always happy to help.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi there Cheryl, arrived back from Portugal safe and sound, thanks. We had a wonderful time and the apartment was perfect for us, nice and roomy and in a perfect spot for the beach, walking into town and the marina. We may well visit the area again in the future and would not hesitate to book your apartment again and would be happy to recommend it to anyone. Thanks again, regards Jan

Thanks Cheryl - yes we had another lovely break at the apartment, the apartment and location are perfect , particularly for us wanting a 'chill out' from busy lives Thanks again - will hopefully be in touch again in the not too distant future! Regards Liz

Just to confirm that we did indeed have a great time whilst staying in the Sky apartment. No problems getting to it or coming back which is always a bonus. The apartment was really good and was in a great place to allow you to walk into town in the evening having stopped off for a quick drink at the marina on the way of course. Thanks, Steve.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a friend spent a week in this fantastic apartment at the beginning of July.

It is walking distance to the beach, the marina and Lagos town.

The apartment is a great size and we spent most of our time there, the pool area does not get overly busy either.

We would definitely stop in this apartment again.

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoy this location as it is close to downtown and the beach, a quick walk to either place. The pool is handy for those days when the beach is too windy to enjoy. The apartment is clean and has all you need for a relaxing visit. Lagos is a lovely town with lots of restaurants of all descriptions or the apartment allows you the opportunity to try your cooking skills.

Clean, spacious with good-facilities apartment

  • 5 of 5

"Sky" apartment is a fabulous place to base yourself on a holiday in the western Algarve. Easy to find- directions spot on- even arriving late in evening. clean and spacious for the two of us. Two balconies on different aspects.

We liked the pool area- but not quite warm enough to swim in March.

Meia Praia beach only 800m away is perfect for strolling along, plenty of excellent local restaurants- personally I do advise trying "Barracuda" out the way a little but the fish was so fresh.

Highly recommended- will be going again.

The beaches at Lagos are fabulous. Miles of wonderful white sand mean that they are never crowded. The sea is very safe and shallow for quite a distance so really good for children. The nearest and best beach is a maximum of ten minutes walk from the apartment. There is masses of free parking if you do decide to drive.


Most UK airports have flights to Faro. Transfers can be arranged from the airport to the apartments and the journey time is just under the hour. I can highly recommend FaroAirportTransfersTo.com. The alternative is to taxi the short distance to the railway station and take the train to Lagos, the last stop on the line. It's a lovely journey of about 1.5 hours. Car hire is only necessary for your holiday if you decide to tour. There is so much to do and see locally that a car is not necessary.


Lagos town itself is just ten minutes stroll through the pretty marina, over the swing bridge and you are there. The town is a working town, not a resort as such. It is a lovely place to spend time with it's pretty, cobbled streets, small squares and a great choice of places for coffee, snacks and fabulous food across a wide price range.

Further Details:

There is a local supermarket only three minutes away from SUN and SKY that bake baguettes and croissants every morning and serve delicious custard doughnuts (one of my favourites). A larger supermarket called Pingo Dolce is about ten minutes away. You can buy all you could possible need between the two of them. The fabulous marina is five minutes walk and you will find great places to eat, have snacks and watch the boating activity. Only ten minutes walk takes you over the swing bridge into the pretty and lively town. Stroll along its broad avenue, wander through the quaint cobbled streets and lovely squares. You are surrounded by interesting, individual shops, cafes and a selection of the best restaurants. As Lagos is a working town, rather than a resort, it supports a year round selection of excellent eateries across a wide price range. If you want a quiet beach and poolside holiday then these apartments are for you as the fabulous sandy beaches are minutes walk away or you have the pool at the apartments. However there is so much to do and see locally. You can go deep sea fishing, take boat trips to inaccessible beaches or just sail along this most beautiful coast, enjoying the spectacular grottoes and scenery. Boats are also available for hire for your own use. Visit the local zoo marina, one of the few places in Europe where you can swim with dolphins! Take a motor cycle and side car trip to one of four lovely locations - it's a really fun trip. Visit the spectacular Water Park which can be reached by car or the regular bus service. There are many water sports available to you, including wind surfing. If you also want to see some local culture Lagos still has most of it's old wall intact, dating back to Roman times. There are some wonderful churches, museums and galleries. At night the town comes alive with jazz clubs, bars and nightclubs open until late. A monthly activities and events sheet is published and is widely available.
