About the Owner

We first went to the Algarve in 1995 for a family holiday. The children were eight and sweet sixteen.We all fell in love with the people, way of life and of course the beautiful weather and beaches.The family often went back for more holidays after trying out different countries, but Portugal won our hearts. In 2005 we took the decision to buy our own property and the rest as they say is history. happy holidays. The Kellys, Ireland..

Lovely Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is definitely a home from home and the location is fantastic. A five minute walk to the beautiful Marina with boats, bars and restaurants, and a ten minute walk to either the beach or Lagos old town with all it's character.

The apartment is one of the best on the complex with big rooms and an amazing roof terrace. Furnished in a tradition style the apartment was clean and all the things that were included really helped to make our holiday easy.

Although the smaller apartments opposite are not the most attractive looking the complex itself was lovely. Chilled out, amazing and beautifully clean pool area and grounds. We never had a problem securing 4 sun loungers no matter what time of day and the restaurant on site provides good quality snacks and meals.

It was our first family holiday to the Algarve and we thoroughly enjoyed the chilled atmosphere and beautiful beaches.

Highlights included an exciting speed boat trip to spot wild Dolphins (which we did), a half day sailing trip (when we saw more Dolphins), Zoo Marine and the beach and beach bar at Burgau which is a 15 minute drive away and serves the most amazing food with lots of fresh fish.

We booked our boat trips with Dizzy Dolphin/Waterworld who were the only ones that we found were willing to give us the children discount even though our two girls should really have been classed as the adult price. They also discounted again for our second booking which overall represented a big saving.

We would recommend Luz Car for rental who were by far the cheapest and again very laid back. It was great to have a car and be able to explore a bit further afield.

All in all an excellent two weeks and many thanks to June who was very helpful before and during our stay.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in Lagos and the apartment was fabulous. We loved the sun terrace with so much space and spent most of our time there relaxing in the sun. The owners have certainly thought of everything for the apartment as it is so well equipped. We have been in several different apartments when staying in Lagos but this is definitely a favourite. Hope to be back again soon!

Summer holidays

  • 5 of 5

I would fully recommend this fabulous property for a lovely relaxing holiday. We spent a week there inJune and the weather was lovely. The apartment is very well furnished and has a homely feel about it. The bedrooms are large, There is a large living area and a large balcony area outside which is great as you could spend the day sunning yourself or cooling off in the shade.

It is in a great location. Just a few minutes walk to the beach and right beside the marina where there is a choice of fab restaurants and bars to choose from.

The owners were really helpful as well and I hope to return very soon

Lagos has the amenities everyone wants no matter what age they are. If you're into deep sea fishing/watching dolphins, strolling around the cobbled streets, golf, everything is near by. The old world charm of the town has to be seen to be believed. If you love it half as much as us we will be well pleased. Happy holidays.
