An elegant interior designed 2 bedroom luxury apartment located in the beautiful historic centre of Lagos with easy access to the finest beaches on the Algarve. The apartment is extremely well located just 100 metres from the old historic walls, walking distance of 1 kilometre from the train and bus stations (14mins walk), 800 metres to the Marina and quick easy access of just a few minutes to Meia Praia Beach, and world famous Dona Ana Beach, and ten minutes to top golf courses.

The property is tastefully furnished with options for both indoor and outdoor dining.
An excellent base for visitors, surfers, sailors, golfers, and sun lovers, Lagos has something for everyone. Between the ancient streets where the age of Portuguese exploration and navigation commenced, you will discover a laid back welcoming 70's vibe sitting alongside a modern, eclectic, functioning town attracting surfers, gourmet chefs, the in-crowd, families and retirees. Lagos was recently listed as the top destination for up coming travel destinations, yet it looses none of its inherent character, and honesty. This is a working town where the people are friendly, polite, and a high standard of service and care is delivered to its visitors. There are few places in the world which deliver such richness of culture, and experience with such ease.
Easily accessible as a day trip are many other famous Portuguese towns and beaches, Monchique, Silves, Luz, Carvoeiro, Lagoa, Sagres amongst many others. Lisbon is a 2 hour 50 minute drive and can also be reached by train or bus.
The central location means car hire is not necessary, however, should you wish to hire a car, scooter, or electric bicycle for a day or two there are many options for hire in the local vicinity. This is a city centre location so urban and normal apartment noise should be expected.
Winter sunshine is in abundance, and the climate is temperate all year round. Heating is available during winter months.

Why Celia and David Robertson chose Lagos Centre
We bought this property in 2016 as we were so found the location to be outstanding and the property has spacious rooms with outside balconies and terraces. We love the local town of Lagos which truly has everything to offer - shopping, marina trips, history and architecture all of which we enjoy. I should also mention we took up golf in 2012 and have found excellent golfing facilities within 10 mins drive from the historic centre. We felt that this apartment genuinely offered the best of all worlds being accessbile to the beach and marina but also providing as with a Winter sun destination with all year round activities within an attractive, lively, and romantic setting.

Superb accommodation in an ideal location
We had a fantastic holiday! This apartment is furnished to a very high standard, It was immaculate throughout. The beds were the comfiest I have ever slept in and the cotton bed linen so soft and luxurious. We used the outside terrace every evening and lit the beautiful lanterns that were provided. In the mornings we purchased our coffee from the lovely little coffee shop on the corner and sat on the apartment front balcony and watched Lagos come alive. Nothing has been forgotten in this beautiful apartment, Celia has furnished it with impeccable taste. I can recommend the Italian restaurant on the corner as a wonderful place to eat and the food in Baffi Bar is fab if you fancy a light lunch. This was our 4th time in Lagos but certainly the best place we have stayed. We only hope we will be able to book this property again for our next trip as it is by far the best place we have lived. I can't thank you enough Celia for making my birthday a very special one indeed. Your beautiful apartment is a little piece of heaven ideally located within the heart of Lagos. You made turning 50 a little easier. Best wishes from the Sharpe family. x
Thank you for the lovely review. We are so happy that you had a wonderful holiday in lovely Lagos, and enjoyed your special birthday in this beautiful part of Portugal. Thank you also for highlighting some of the special restaurants, bars and coffee shops that make Lagos living so characterful, and easy going. We look forward to seeing you in the future.
A clean bright and spacious nicely decorated apartment right in the centre of town .
Location is the key with this property, you are just a few steps from the centre of Lagos with it’s many shops and fantastic eateries. Hidden away in a residential district living amongst the locals so not the quietest place to be but you have to balance this against all the other advantages this apartment has such as the three outdoor terraces especially from the roof where you can see the old town and beach.
Very pleased to hear you enjoyed the central location and the lovely restaurants and shops of Lagos. We hope to see you again in the future.
Great flat , great location.
Lovely, immaculate flat in a very central location in Lagos. Beds extremely comfortable, plenty of storage. Lovely hot shower. We would definately use again.
Best meal we had was the Italian just round the corner, plenty of restaurants to choose from in the centre and at the Marina. Good bus service along the coast.
Clean, tidy and good position in town
Shower is being sorted but otherwise good
Very nice very modern apartment in a great location. It was about 2 minutes walk to Praca de Gil Eanes. I stayed for a week and had a great time. Had everything I needed.
We are really happy to hear everything met all your needs and you enjoyed the central location. We hope to see you again in the future.
A wonderful comfortable stay!
We stayed in this lovely apartment for three weeks in November. It is very nicely decorated and well equipped, just a stone's throw from everything in Lagos. When we had an occasional problem with the internet, Celia arranged with an engineer to come and sort out the problem straight away. The little balcony is lovely for a cup of coffe in the mornng and the roof terrace we used a couple of times for relaxing in the sun.
The beds are very comfortable and the bedlinen are of excellent quality.
We loved everything about this apartment and if we come back to Lagos in the future, we will book here again. Thank you for a very nice stay! Elisabeth and Per
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay, and enjoyed lovely Lagos. We warmly look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Lagos is a historic town, where the Portuguese explorers and navigators set off to explore the new world. It is a top visitors destination and truly offers something for everyone. Traditionally a port and fishing town, Lagos has retained its old charm whilst developing with the modern world to offer a superb marina in a picturesque setting. Lagos has some of the best beaches not only in the Algarve but in the world, choose from Batata beach in town, Meia Praia - a wide unspoilt expanse popular with surfers, the stunningly picturesque Praia Dona Ana, or try the charming nearby fishing village and resort at Praia da Luz. These are just a few of the easily accessible beaches.
Lagos historic town is full of charm with winding streets, plentiful fine restaurants and cafes to suit all budgets, shops, and market stalls - wander through the maze of endless cobbled quaint streets which open every so often to charming squares, with adjacent traditionally tile fronted buildings and trees for shade.
Boat trips, and fishing trips are plentiful and start from the delightful marina. Bicycles, electric bicycles, scooters and cars can all be hired locally providing options for going a little further. A great centre for surfing, both surf and paddle boards can also be hired, as can lessons and trips.
Lagos remains a working Portuguese town and is never closed, has modern shopping, souvenir shops, dentists, doctors, hospitals, and everything one might ever need.
Lagos has historic charm, a 70's vibe, and combines its laid back culture with a high level of service and care. It is hard to leave but should you wish to explore further the Algarve and Lisbon are easily accessible.
