About the property

1 double, 2 twin rooms, 2 BA, living/dining, kitchen, 3 terraces, BBQ, pool

Modern end of terrace duplex situated directly in front of Meia Praia beach, with unobstructed sea views. Next to Atlantico Restaurant, not as shown on Google map. Spacious marble-floored living/ dining area on upper level opening onto terrace with al fresco dining furniture and barbecue for 6 overlooking the sea. New kitchen units and appliances Oct 2010.

Wonderfully located directly in front of Meia Praia beach the western Algarve's biggest and best but if you prefer there are also secluded rocky coves to be found the other side of Lagos.

The lovely historic town of Lagos is a short drive or 2km walk cutting through the marina,it is well worth exploring.

All kinds of activities are available in the area. Golf courses abound in the Algarve; Palmares, one of the best, is a very short distance from the property.

The area is famous for it's surf and there is a surfing school 200m from the house.

Location: The property is an end-of block duplex town house, about 3km by car from the centre of Lagos (or 2km if walking through the Marina) and about 88 km West of Faro airport, almost all motorway.

It stands in front of one of the Algarve’s finest beaches, with around 4km of fine sand which is never crowded and various water-sport sites on the beach, as well as beach restaurants. Lagos is a very pleasant town to walk around, with an excellent variety of restaurants, boat excursions including a semi-submersible which tours the caves beneath the lighthouse just to the West of town.

Exploring: The western Algarve is less intensely developed than the eastern part and rewards exploration down what in places become unpaved roads. Most beaches are relatively small, bounded by rocks or cliffs (Meia Praia is an exception to the rule).

An excursion or two into the hills of Sierra de Monchique is highly recommended, offering splendid views to both South and West coasts and a circuit can be done to return by the West coast, which itself is something completely different, with vast expanses of beach open to the Atlantic rollers and hardly any people. Excellent for beach games and walking. Again, this requires research and exploration to discover the accesses. At the bottom of the West coast, nearly 30km west of Lagos, is Cape St Vincent – the most westerly point of Europe, with views of sometimes very rough seas from the top of the cliffs.

Accommodation: The house is laid out with the living area upstairs, comprising living room (7.50m x 5.10m) with marble floor, wood-burning stove and satellite TV, dining area for 6, kitchen with gas hob, electric oven/grill, fridge, freezer, automatic washing machine, dishwasher and a terrace with unobstructed sea views.

The communal pool is in front but a few metres to the side of the house and has an adjacent snack bar. A staircase leads down to the bedrooms, comprising one double and two twin rooms, the main one with bathroom en suite (full bath with shower) and a sea-facing terrace. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom (full bath with shower) and there is an under-stairs cupboard for storage. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. There is private parking immediately outside the door to the property. A good supermarket is 2km away, on the way into Lagos. The Algarve abounds in golf courses and the Palmares course lies about 2km from the house.

Excellent property in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Portugal and I had no real idea about where to stay with my two children. Claire, who deals with the bookings was very helpful and so I booked a one week stay in July.

The complex is very clean and the house is very well furnished on two levels with a terrace from both the living room and main bedroom, the house overlooks the pools but is very quiet. the beach is just across the road, a few minutes walk. the beach is wide and sandy and safe for kids. Lagos is either a fifteen minute walk along the beach or a three minute car ride. The house was ideal for us as it had all the amenities you would get at home and it was lovely sitting on the terrace in the evenings, so quiet!

The complex manager, Ana Wilson, was lovely, she also runs the pool snack bar but will also help in any way she can.

Lovely local restaurants especially the ones along the beach.

All in all, great holiday, no complaints at all!!
