About Sarah Marlow

I live in Yorkshire with my husband, 3 children (aged 12 - 10 and 8) and our 2 Maltese dogs. After spending holidays in hotels and not catering for young childrens needs we decided to invest in our own home from home and took the decision to buy in the Western algarve after many enjoyable holidays in the region. After spending every school holiday for 4 years we have decided to rent our lovely home out so other people can enjoy. AL-14014 property AL number.

Sarah Marlow purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sarah Marlow chose Lagos region

We love the Western Algarve as it is very traditional with lots of little fishing villages and some of the best beaches in the world! With so much sun and only a short distance from the UK with regular flights it is the perfect place to holiday, whether for a weekend or a whole 6 weeks in the summer.

Praia da Luz has an abundance of restaurants to choose from catering for every taste and Lagos only a short distance away has a great bustling nightlife and marina to enjoy day or night!

There really is something for everyone no matter what!

What makes this apartment unique

As we purchased the apartment off plan we watched it being built stage by stage and specified extras to ensure it met our requirements for our young family, hence safety being key!

The development is 5 star throughout with a choice of pools including an indoor heated pool, gym and spa available all year around which is unique as only accessible for the complex which consists of just 43 apartments.

Having our own reception on site really adds value ensuring help is always at hand.

Located on a corner plot gives uninterrupted views of the Ocean with a south facing garden to soak up the rays all day long!

With your own outdoor eating and chill out area for those lazy evenings you simply have no choice but to relax!

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic family holiday in this beautiful apartment. Everything was 5* and well presented. There was lots of beaches and restaurants near by and the children loved the private pool. My husband and I enjoyed the chilled out atmosphere. We will be back again. Just perfect. Thank you. Xxx

  • 5 of 5

Appartment has everything you could wish for... absolutely beautiful.

We had a car so everything was easily accessible....Burgau and Luz equal in distance from appartment...either by car or a 20 minute stroll into either town.

Car hire and anything I needed to know Sarah the owner always replied to me within 5 minutes!! she's great. Car from Zitautos absolutely hassle free...

Would love to return one day......SOON.

Perfect chill out destination

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful villa. We spent the majority of our time around the private pool which is perfect for cooling off. The villa is equivalent to 5* hotel standard and provides everything you could need. Amazing beaches and restaurants only a short drive away, we will definitely be returning to recharge are batteries next year! Thank you

Perfect apartment - perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived at This beautiful apartment we felt settled and at home, it was well equipped and very comfortable. We travelled with our 3 Daughters (age 12, 9 and 5) there was ample room for us all to spend 2 lovely weeks soaking up the sun and making use of the 3 pools on offer. We hired a car for the full 2 weeks, which I would highly recommend as it's a 40 min walk to Luz and the closest shops (although a cab cost around 5 - 8 euros). The development is immaculate and well looked after and the reception very helpful, you really couldn't find a better place to stay. The beds and pillows were so comfy and the air conditioning in every room was great. If we travelled to Luz again we would definitely look to return to this apartment. Thank you Sarah for all your contact, help and smooth booking of what was the best holiday ever. Xx

It was our second stay in this lovely apartment and once again it didn't disappoint. My husband and I travelled with our two children aged 7 and 4 and they absolutely love staying here, they want to know when we can return. The apartment has everything you could need and the complex facilities are fantastic. Sarah the owner was very helpful. A true Gem!
