Great property, great location

  • 5 of 5
The listing and description of the property were very accurate. We were not disappointed. The property was clean and well maintained. It was a pleasure doing business with Carolyn. She was patient and helpful. Her guide to Lagos was also very useful once we arrived at the house.

The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. Maia praia Beach is clean and quite spectacular. The pool (1 minute away) was also practical. It was clean and well maintained.

I would recommend the house to family and friends and I would not hesitate going back.

Superb apartment close to the sea and Lagos town

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I discovered Lagos in 1994 and our trip this year was our fifteenth holiday in this beautiful town.
We have tried various types of accommodation in the area but this one meets our needs 100% specifically in terms of location, space and peaceful panoramic views over the Meia Praia Beach and Lagos Bay.
The apartment in on two levels, bathroom and the two bedrooms downstairs and reception, hallway, living area and kitchen on the ground level. The bedrooms are cool enabling a very good night’s sleep in the high summer temperatures of the Algarve. You will awake to the sound of birds singing in the morning sunshine and the early risers can watch the small fishing boats returning to harbour with their daily catches.
It has two patio balconies – one from the master bedroom and the other from the living area, both beautifully surrounded by colourful flowers.
There is a swimming pool sunbathing area within the complex but we would strongly recommend you visiting the Meia Praia Beach which is a short walk away 2 minutes in the cool of the day or 3 minutes in bright sunshine. It is a huge beautiful supervised (lifeguarded) safe beach with clean golden sand and is never ever very crowded.
There are restaurants local to the apartment but a short car or bus ride (bus stop is about 120m from the apartment) is the town of Lagos itself. You can also walk to the town along the sea edge and catch a small ferry into the main town centre – takes about 40 minutes on foot.
Lagos offers all types of cuisine (local and specialised) at very reasonable prices together with a variety of night life and interesting street theatre. Alternatively you can people watch at the Lagos Marina when you can take advantage of ‘Happy (3) Hour’ in the main Bars there.
We would recommend the hiring of a car to take full advantage of the area and it takes about 80 minutes to get to and from Faro Airport. There is a site agent available to help with unforeseen issues/advice and minor domestic problems.
For those wanting a peaceful and/or entertaining holiday with good food wine and excellent facilities this apartment is an absolutely perfect base for your vacation.
The apartment is highly recommended for those wanting either a friendly family holiday or those seeking a peaceful get away.

Lovely Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5
This pretty house is spotlessly clean and very welcoming. We have stayed here before and were more than happy to come back again. There are books to read in the cupboard and TV watch your favorite shows on, a kitchen to cook in or simply to make the coffee in and cosy chairs in the living area for when night time falls. If you don't want to cook try out one of the many beach bars which serve meals from lunch till late. The pool area managed by Ana Paula is clean and pretty with plenty of loungers to laze the day away on. Carolyn is very helpful with any queries you may have and will do her best to ensure you have a super holiday.

Superb Holiday

  • 5 of 5
MYSELF AND TWO GIRLFRIENDS DECIDED ON LAGOS AS OUR ANNUAL HOLIDAY DESTINATION THIS YEAR, NOT REALLY KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT RE THE RESORT, BEACHES, NIGHTLIFE ETC

FIRSTLY, THE ACCOMODATION WAS REFRESHINGLY EXACTLY AS HAD BEEN DESCRIBED...DELIGHTFUL, WITH A GENEROUS SIZED BALCONY WHICH COMMANDED STUNNING SEA VIEWS. THE POOL AREA WAS SPOTLESS AND I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO MENTION THE RESORT MANAGER, ANA, WHO WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL FROM START TO FINISH AND ALSO HAPPENED TO BE A GREAT COOK IF YOU FANCIED SOME LUNCH/DINNER BY THE POOLSIDE.

SECONDLY, THE BEACHES AND THEIR RESTAURANTS, WHICH WERE ONLY A FIVE MINUTE STROLL FROM THE APARTMENT, WERE ALSO SPOTLESS. LAGOS TOWN CENTRE WAS BUZZING AT NIGHT, WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF IMPRESSIVE SEAFOOD RESTAURANTS AND LIVELY BARS.

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOTH THE ACCOMODATION AND LAGOS ITSELF FOR THOSE LOOKING TO RELAX BY DAY AND HAVE FUN BY NIGHT.

My favorite Home form Home.

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed many times before at Pinhal da Meia Praia but this was the best apartment by far. We like to cook our own meal some evenings after spending long lazy days doing not very much, and found the kitchen was well stocked with all you could want. The easy chairs in the living room area were just that, comfy and roomy with the balcony perfect for outside eating with a large table and four chairs with cushons. The owner is so helpful and can't do enough for you, with the on-site manager ever present if you need help. The view of the beach from the balcony is perfect for watching the fishing boats bobbing along, with views both ways of Lagos to the right and Alvor to the left. Highly recomended for a quiet, peaceful holiday. A car is almost essential as the Pingo Dose supermarket is quite a trek from the apartment, with the Intermarche supermarket around two miles away. For free parking use the road behind the marina and park just before the bridge over the river, a walk along the Aveneida into town is very pleasent. Happy holiday!

Sun sea & the best beach on the Algarve

Sun sea & the best beach on the Algarve
  • 5 of 5
I would recommend this property for families and couples alike. It's a straight road from the airport, about an hour away. The description is absolutely spot on. The property is clean and well looked after. The on site management is second to none, nothing is too much trouble. She will even cook you dinner if you ask nicely! The proximity to the main town is close enough so you can nip to the supermarket and it won't take all morning, yet far enough away so that you are not overwhelmed by all the touristy stuff. But best of all the beach is as close as it says in the description. You can spend the morning at the beach, go back to the house for lunch and then go back to the beach in the afternoon. And probably get the same spot! We didn't venture far from the beach except in the evening to the town to eat. There are so many restaurants to choose from, everything from pizza to curry with innumerable local food options in between. The locals are very helpful and hospitable. Everyone speaks English and they don't mind if your Portugese is a bit dodgy! The owner is very helpful and answered my many questions honestly. The price per week is very competitive considering the many extras, such as linen, towels, and Sky TV that are included. I really hope to be able to go there again next year.

Visit Meia Praia to find sun,sea,fun,swimming,golfing,walking along the beach and cliff tops or simply lazing by the pool. Lagos is a stone's throw away and has something for everyone within its quaint cobbled streets. It offers a beautiful marina,stylish boutiques,great cafes,fantastic nightlife with its bars and nightclubs,and countless restaurants to suit all tastes. The town itself is steeped in history and boasts many museums and churches. A short distance inland is the Monchique mountain range with walks to suit all ages.

Whatever you decide to do,you will have a wonderful stay here and and an unforgettable Lagos experience!

The secret of Lagos: Lagos is a unique little jewel in the Algarve. It has chosen to develop its tourism with taste and class. It offers a balance of the charm and history of the Portuguese culture with a blend of creature comforts and facilities to please the desires of the most discerning tourist. The warmth of Lagos and her people make it difficult to resist falling in love with this seaside town. I can only say that Lagos has a special something that you feel when you spend time here, and it is a place that you will never forget...

The most important thing - weather and when to go!: November to March Low Season

Warm to cool weather; bargain prices; nice quiet time to visit; no crowds; great opportunity to escape the cold winters; a few restaurants and cafés close down.

December: Christmas is a unique and spiritual time to visit; Lagos and most towns are adorned with lights like you have never seen before; a walk around town on December 24 at 11pm is an unforgettable experience.

April to June; September to October Mid Season

Warm weather; Reasonable prices; lively atmosphere; lots of space on the beaches.

June: Hot weather; low season for golf with great bargains at many golf courses; reasonable crowds.

July to August Peak Season Hot; Europe's summer time playground

Golfers Heaven: This is the perfect place for any golf enthusiast.

Palmares, which is just 1/2 mile from the townhouse is a beautiful course which perfectly blends beach and mountain scenery.The clubhouse is set between holes nine and ten and provides a fantastic panorama of 25km of Atlantic coastline!

Boa Vista, Penina and Parque da Floresta are within 15 minutes of the property and the Vilamoura courses are an approx 30 min.
