About Giuseppe (Lou) Schillaci

Lou and Claire moved to the Algarve from Australia and have enjoyed making a new home in Lagos in the Western Algarve.

"It's a large enough town to be busy and have every imaginable facility and yet it is a walkable, relaxed town with lovely old streets, beautiful beaches and a year round holiday spirit. We love it!"

Lou and Claire, and their Australian cattle dog, Lilli, love to share the Lagos experience with visitors who all comment on the beautiful views from the apartment.

"We enjoy a walk around the old town in the morning and a quiet cup of coffee in one of the many cafes. If we get the chance we walk to the beach during the day. In the evenings there is an endless choice of bars, shops and restaurants to while away the evening."

Lou and Claire warmly welcome you to Lagos.

Why Giuseppe (Lou) Schillaci chose Ameijeira

We were lucky enough to find our Views of Lagos apartment two years ago and happily rented it until having the recent good fortune to purchase it.

It is a very spacious top floor apartment. Of course the views are what draw you in immediately as they span a 180 degree vista, from the mountain of Monchique, across Meia Praia beach and the Bay of Lagos, right across the old town to the ancient city wall.

The loungeroom and balcony have prime views but the nice thing is that every room has a view of something - old town, new town and the old wall.

Being just outside the city wall, the old town is on the doorstep, which makes for great walks and easy shopping and dining. It’s also lovely that the beaches you can see from the apartment are walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

It is rare to have the combination of views and location. Everything you see you can walk to. Within 30 seconds you are through the wall and in the old town with its cobbled streets and fisherman's cottages.

Even the locals agree that Lagos is authentically Portuguese so you can enjoy meandering around the old town, and still find great places to eat, live music and interesting shops.

Behind the apartment is the local neighbourhood where you will see how the locals live - how they shop and the bars and cafes they frequent. The local fish and fruit and veggie market is here. It’s a real slice of life experience.

At Views of Lagos you are central to absolutely everything . You can just relax around the pool or on the balcony, or take in many interesting local sights.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Fab holiday in fab apartment in Lagos. Great location for exploring all that Lagos has to offer by day and night. Apartment was spotless and extremely comfortable. Made good use of roof terrace late in the afternoon. Both Claire and Gail the property manager were very attentive and the airport transfer with Andre worked really well. Would recommend highly.

Perfect Apartment! Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this apartment. The whole stay from the apartment, to the location, to the town of Lagos and the nearby beaches exceeded our expectations. The apartment was walking distance to nearby beaches (all within 30 min or less). It was nice to be able to choose from different beaches. But the best was how close it was to the old city walls and entrance. Every night we explored the cobble stoned narrow streets with so much to see and so many restaurants to choose from! Of course we had the fantastic view from the living room and balcony and the pool to cool off after our walks from the beach. The apartment itself could not have been better - clean, spacious, and stocked with everything you need. I could not recommend this place enough. When we come back to Lago, we will definitely stay here! I also want to thank Claire for always being so helpful and answering all of our questions.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! The apartment is extremely spacious and well appointed - our family of 2 adults and 2 teens was very comfortable there. The location is ideal - right near the action in the center of town (walking distance) yet away from the noise and bustle. The pool was an excellent place to relax and the views from the apartment were gorgeous. The owners and property manager were very responsive and accommodating. I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: It was so good to hear that you enjoyed all the benefits of the apartment - it's space and facilities as well as the pool and it's proximity to town. The peace and quiet is nice isn't it given how close it is to all the activity in the centre. Great to have you!

Very impressed

  • 5 of 5

A very well appointed apartment in a great location. The apartment us very comfortable and even on hot days is refreshingly cool from the through breeze. The pool area is very clean and only used by the few families living in the condominium. Only a short easy walk to town a great bars and food. In two minds whether to keep this a secret. Thanks for the great rental. I am sure we will be back.

Excellent apartment in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment in great location. Had just about everything we needed, though disappointed there was no access to BBC as would have liked to have been able to watch Wimbledon! Other than that cannot fault the apartment nor the help provided by Gail (building manager).

We didn't do a huge amount of exploring outside Lagos itself, though would certainly recommend a trip to Lagos Zoo (not to be mistaken with ZooMarine which we didn't visit)

Owner's Response: We were pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Sorry you didn't get to see the tennis on BBC but we hope Netflix, the cable stations, Bluray player and of course the view made up for that! Thanks for posting your review and we're glad you enjoyed your time in our home and in Lagos.

Best vacation in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

Claire's condo with its stunning city and sea view was quite spacious for two couples. It's location to the old citiy and beaches is ideal for walking. Parking for the car was free and nearby..We could not ask for a better vacation home. The condo is excellent, clean and bright with lots of windows. Don't look any further! Mike Snow from Ottawa.

Owner's Response: It was so nice that for your first time in Portugal you chose to spend time at our apartment and in Lagos. It was great to host the four of you and we hope to see you back some other time. You'd certainly be welcome!

Further Details:

Lagos is full of historical interest with it's origins dating as far back as 2000 years BC when it was known as Lacobriga.

Lagos has always had a seafaring connection, originally visited by Phoenicians and Carthaginians and then, during the 15th century, was the base for the 'voyages of the Discoveries' instigated by Henry the Navigator when trade between Africa and Portugal brought a great deal of wealth into the town.

The older part of Lagos is still circled by the city walls that were constructed during the 16th century when it was the residence of the governors of the Algarve and the fort, Ponta da Bandeira, by Batata beach is part of the 17th century fortifications that were added to protect the town.

It is truly authentic in nature and yet it is a hive of activity with excellent shops and facilities, tourist activities and cultural pursuits.

As there are over 220 cafes, bars and restaurants in Lagos, good food, entertainment and night life are here in abundance!
