About John Griffiths

Having lived in Portugal most of my adult life & loving this part of the Algarve, especially Lagos, Porto de Mós was the obvious choice as it still retains its typical Portuguese charm and as this is where I live it seemed the right choice to provide high quality holidays right here

John Griffiths purchased this apartment in 2008

Why John Griffiths chose Lagos Town

The 'location' - almost absolute beach position

What makes this apartment unique

The views & the secluded low rise condominium with only 12 apartments (most of which are seldom used & not rented)

Good quality accommodation in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Booking and communication with the property agent John Griffiths was timely and straightforward. We were notified a couple of days before our stay that the apartment had suffered a water leak and that there would be a delay of a day before we could access the apartment to allow for repairs. No problem John checked with us that we were happy with an alternative apartment next door for one night. On arrival we were met by john and a colleague at the agreed time and shown to our apartment. It was first class accommodation of a very high standard. The following day at the agreed time we were transferred to the apartment we had booked and this was of a similarly high standard with sea/beach views from the lounge and one bedroom. A minor niggle was there was some weekday building work on the back side of the accommodation where some further apartments were being built. We did not notice it when in the apartment but on occasions could hear noise when using the pool. The location of the apartment was excellent. Just a very short walk down to a lovely sandy beach with a couple of restaurants and only a three minute drive into Lagos old town which we thought was beautiful. All in all a wonderful stay - we will be back!

Spacious, modern, stylish and convenient to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Lagos, especially the accommodations. The condo was very new, modern conveniences, and appliances. The rooms were spacious with vey nice bathrooms. The porch looking over the pool made for a great breakfast setting.every morning. There was convenient parking for our rental car with easy access. The washer/dryer eliminated any concerns about having dirty clothes to deal with. It was only a short walk to a beautiful beach, snack bar and a restaurant. It was a short drive into town and was within a short distance of a well supplied supermarket, Intermarche. It was also in close proximity to major thoroughfares which made it easy to explore local towns and historical sites. For us, golf was a priority and we found 3 superb courses within a 15 minute drive. John's people were helpful upon arrival and responding to questions we may have had. It is quite residential which makes it attractive for those with children or the desire for a more relaxing vacation.

We were very pleased with our overall experience and our first introduction to Portugal.

Fabulous apartments

  • 5 of 5

These apartments are in a quiet area with a private pool, which wasn't busy even at this peak time of year. the beach is a short walk away with a couple of great restaurants. The owner, John, is very helpful and we were met in person, even though we arrived at about 10.30pm. the apartments are exactly as described and the John is very easy to communicate with and will go out of his way to help during your stay. The wifi is worth having and is very quick - we had 4 mobile devices which all worked very well during our stay. The apartments are well looked after, very clean and well equipped. I highly recommend staying here!! We were a family of four, with daughters aged 14 & 11 who really enjoyed the pool and the beach!

High quality family friendly apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment furnished to the highest standard. Very well-equipped kitchen for family use (dishwasher, microwave, large fridge-freezer) and the owner provided a cot and highchair on request so absolutely perfect for a family holiday.

We spent most of our time on the lovely balcony overlooking the pool – a lounger was perfectly placed for lunchtime sunbathing on the balcony while the little one slept.

Lovely pool area in the complex and a very short walk to the beach – 5 mins when walking down through a hidden path with lots of steps or approx 7mins when walking via the main road (better with a buggy).

A short drive to Lagos town centre but also conveniently located for easy access to the main road out to Praia da Luz, Sagres etc

We would definitely book again, it felt like a home from home.
