About Mrs Sarah-Jayne Bell
Sarah-Jayne Bell, from Manchester. I own two apartments on the Algarve, and try and spend as much time as possible there. My family and I love the country and the people.
Mrs Sarah-Jayne Bell purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Mrs Sarah-Jayne Bell chose Porto de Mós
I bought near Lagos as the town centre and beaches were so beautiful. I fell in love with Porto De Mos beach on an earlier visit and wanted my new home to be as close as possible to that wonderful beach.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is in a quiet and peaceful location and is really close to the beach! The apartment also benefits from a TV package and broadband wifi.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Had a lovely stay here ,apartment was well equipped and very clean. Porto de mos beach is lovely and only a 10 minute walk away. The bus service into Lagos was great and we made use of it most days cost only €1.20 . Perfect location for a relaxing beach holiday but within in easy reach of town. Loved it !!
A really nice apartment!
We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was exactly as described: clean, stylishly furnished and well-equipped. We enjoyed the space afforded by the large lounge/dining area; the kitchen was spacious and well-equipped; the bedrooms were roomy and comfortable, with plenty of storage (and a small safe); the bathrooms were nicely equipped. The terrace/garden area outside the apartment afforded some privacy, with the choice of sun or shade (if required); we really enjoyed eating outside. The pool area was clean and tidy; the grounds were very well-maintained. The secure underground parking was an added bonus (but that’s not to suggest that security was ever an issue, the area felt perfectly safe, just that some people might prefer it). Sarah was a pleasure to deal with from initial enquiry through to completion of our stay; she offered helpful advice and quick responses to our questions. Overall, we had an excellent stay in a really nice apartment – thank you!
Apartment was beautifully fitted out, close to the beach and set in lovely gardens.
Definitely will stay in this apartment again. Beautiful beach and great restaurants both on the beach and in Lagos.
We'd stayed in the Algarve before, but never in Lagos. We were not disappointed. The apartment was absolutely fantastic and had everything the family needed. It was close to the beach and a short drive from the town centre and all of the great restaurants there. The booking process was easy with the owner and their manager met us and helped us onsite with anything we needed. Will certainly be heading back soon and would recommend this one to others
This was my first visit to Portugal, and I am pleased to say it wont be my last! Nor will it be my last visit to this apartment!
I have stayed in a multitude of places around the world, and dare i say in a few dives. This apartment had not only a wow factor on arrival, but also a very homely feel!
We arrived with the option of using the secure parking (which we did occasionally, more so to keep the car cool), however, we often left the car outside. The area was lovely and quiet and even the families with small children were respectful to how peaceful the surroundings were.
Having been sent our instructions on how to get from the airport to the villa (which were extremely easy to follow), and what to do on arrival, we were soon in! The first thing that you notice is how clean and beautifully presented the villa is, but its not clinical, the rooms were decorated in such a way that it feels homely. Having called into the supermarket on route, which is only a 5 min drive from the villa, we loaded up the fridge and grabbed a bite to eat. Again, we had no trouble, as the cupboards were filled with pots, pans, dishes, the works!
Now, anyone on holiday will tell you, the pool can make or break a visit! I am happy to report, the pool and the the outdoor Jacuzzi were a massive hit! the pool is quiet, so you can enjoy a quiet swim or even just lounge around it in your deckchair with a good book!
Lagos is a fantastic place to visit. The restaurants are in abundance, and the quality across all of them is high. the seafood is beautiful, as you can imagine being on the coast.
We did drive into town from our apartment it was about 10min, and easy to find. There is paid parking which is a couple of euros, but we found some free parking around the back of the Marina! If you are not one for driving, then the taxis are good! We were left a card of a company in the town, they were quick, and when they said a time, they were there! it costs about 6 Euros to get in.
There is so much to do in Lagos, unfortunately we didn't have the time to do it all! We did manage to walk over to the beach from out apartment and we took in the sights of the coast via the sea kayak tour.
It looks like I will have to return and do some more of what Lagos has to offer. Needless to say, I have found a jewel in this apartment, which I will use again and I strongly recommend others do too. You will not be disappointed, whether you' re a family, couple or single!
Would stay again, loved it
I have stayed in Portugal before but never Porto De Mos. Most of the accommodation I have stayed in has been ok but nothing special. I stayed at this apartment in September 2012 with 3 other friends. The apartment is finished to a high standard and it was clean and offered all the home comforts we needed and is the best accommodation I have ever stayed in, in Portugal.
There was information on arrival at the apartment on the services and all of the activities we could do in the area, which we used and ended up sea kayaking one of the days, this was great fun. They had also provided taxi information for those nights we decided not to drive into Porto de Mos which incidentally is only a short ride from the apartment. However, it is far enough away from the town that you can have a really relaxing holiday during the day if you want to.
We only stayed in the apartment one night during our stay but there were plenty of DVDs to watch to keep us entertained and due to the facilities in the kitchen we could prepare a big meal and eat outside on the terrace which we really enjoyed.
Most nights we ventured into the local town. There were loads of different restaurants to choose from and stalls and street entertainers to look at. There are also quite a few bars which become lively a bit later on but they weren’t full of under 21’s so it was a really good atmosphere.
We were lucky that we had glorious sunshine throughout our stay and so made good use of the sunbeds around the pool. The pool area is really clean and the surrounding garden is kept tidy.
We decided to walk down to the local beach on 2 occasions which only took us 5 minutes to do. This is a really nice sandy beach and there is a restaurant on the front so we could have some lunch and a few drinks.
I would definitely stay at this apartment again and would recommend it to friends. I love Portugal anyway but I think I have found a real gem and look forward to having my next holiday there.
Porto De Mos beach is a short walk from the apartment with its beautiful white sands. It is a fantastic place to relax with 2 lovely restaurants. There are also sunbeds for hire. There are also other lovely beaches in Lagos and along the surrounding coastline.
Porto De Mos is a short distance from Lagos. Lagos is a beautiful market town set within one of the largest bays on the Algarve. Lagos is one of the Algarve's oldest and most interesting towns. Within the historic walls there is an abundance of cafes and restaurants along it's cobbled streets. The marina de Lagos offers a touch of elegance with its restaurants, shops, bars and cafes and is also an important yachting centre, where many boating trips can be arranged. Lagos combines both a local and tourist fee, better than anywhere else on the Algarve. There is always a good local presence when you visit this typical Portuguese town.
Other Activities: Dolphin watching
Golf: The apartment is close to 5 great golf courses. The nearest (Boavista) is only a 3 minute drive away. Polaris gold course is a 10 min drive away and the apartment is within easy reach of other courses.
