Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday with our 6 month old daughter and it was perfect. The apartment was great and the patio doors only yards from the pool area. We had the added bonus of being able to sunbath in the garden until approx. 2pm. The living areas were more than spacious and it was a big help the place had a cot bed.

in terms of the pool area, we had allocated sunbeds and it was very quiet. I think we had the complex to ourselves for the first week! Areas for shade if needed.

Lagas town is a 25 minute walk. We would walk to dinner in the evening, and get a taxi back (approx. 8 euros). Plenty of nice restaurants. There is also a huge supermarket about 15 minutes walk away. Again, we would walk there and get a taxi back with our shopping.

Overall this is was a great stay. Alan was a great help with any request and the apartment was spot on. We would visit again!

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was immaculate and well equipped, very attractive grounds. No problem finding it and the meet and greet worked out well. Very convenient to a beautiful beach, just a short walk away. I would recommend car hire if you want to see further afield or go to Lagos town itself on a regular basis. Overall a beautiful apartment which added to a brilliant sunshine filled holiday. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Beautiful appartment and great for kids

  • 5 of 5

We loved the appartment. It was clean, spacious and brand new!!! We have 2 small children and it was perfect for small kids. The appartment is on the ground floor, which makes it really easy to move around and has a beautiful spacious terrace. We spent most of our time outdoors and its gated so the kids can not escape.

The only downfall is that although you are really close to the old city Lagos, the walk is a little difficult so we ended up taking our car. There is a path that brings you to Porto de mos beach and the 2 restaurants there are excellent. The other thing (which maybe could have been fixed) was that the pool and the hot tub where not heated.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this appartment and the town of Lagos. We visited almost the entire coast and this was the city we found had the most charm

Without being overly commercial.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely comments. I totally agree that the swimming pool would be better if it was heated! Our management company are looking into the possibility of having this done. The location of the apartment enjoys the peace & tranquillity of the Porto De Mos area with the beach only a 5 minute walk away, while the historic town of Lagos is easily reached with a 5 minute car journey or 35 minute walk.

Holiday Aug 2013

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed in this apartment and its always immaculate and the owner provides a great service. Lovely aspect, terrace onto Pool. Always peaceful. Walk to Porto de Mos beach, which is beautiful benefiting from Antonio's a great restaurant. We always hire a car to allow us to visit Lagos, great shopping and restaurants, and drive out to the best beaches in Sagres. We will definitely stay again

Another happy holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We love the location and apartment so much when we stay in 2012 that we booked to return this year - in 20 years of going abroad we have never stayed at the same place twice. Having come again in 2013 we are planning to return next year! Excellent location, great quality apartment in a small, quiet complex. My family have had two very memorable holidays here and are looking forward to their third one. A big thank you to the owners who have always been very helpful and ensure that their contact on site is equally as helpful.
