Luxury apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment with everything you need close at hand. The apartment is spotless and the owners have anticipated everything you might need. The town centre is within 8 - 10 minutes walk and the Marina is 5 minutes away. There is lovely pool area just outside the apartment and Fresco's does great lunches - we ate there every day. Highly recommended.

Perfect Apartment in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a 10 night stay in Jim and Margaret's beautiful apartment. If you've booked this to stay in you will not be disappointed. It's in a perfect location. We love walking and this is central for everything. 5 minutes to the Marina and 5 minutes to the Old Town. This was our first 'Owners Direct' experience and we had lots of questions before we travelled. Jim was a fountain of knowledge and happy to answer any queries. The information pack at the property was very informative and helped us make the most out of our stay. The pool area is beautiful. We would definitely recommend this property.

My husband and I had a very enjoyable 11 nights stay in this lovely apartment. It is very central for the town centre and with 2 supermarkets 5-10 minute walk away what more can you ask for.

It is very nicely decorated with all amenities and a lovely large balcony to enjoy breakfast or evening drinks. We enjoyed the walk to the marina and the beach as Lagos is a beautiful resort. The welcome essentials we received were also very much appreciated. The owners have also made up a very clear and precise pack of information on the area which was very useful to us as we visited many of the restaurants recommended in this pack. We also used the train timetable in the pack and took a train ride to Portimao for the day.

This is a beautiful resort and a very peaceful and well looked after complex and would certainly recommend for couples and families as it has a very safe swimming pool and children's play area.
