About Mike Levett

We live and work in England, Mike in the PVCu window and door industry, Thelma as a children's entertainer and balloon modelling artist. We have two grown up daughters and like to spend as much time as possible in Portugal.

Mike Levett purchased this Apartment in 2006

Why Mike Levett chose Ameijeira

We wanted to buy a property as an investment opportunity and a possible future retirement home. As soon as we arrived in Lagos we knew it would be the perfect place for us. It has managed to achieve the right balance of new, such as the marina, and old, such as the city walls and many quaint buildings in the centre of town. There is no shortage of restaurants or bars and there is easy access to many beaches. Within ten minutes drive of our apartment, we can be out in fantastic open countryside, with olive groves and orange, lemon, fig and cork trees.

What makes this Apartment unique

Our apartment is situated in a square that is quiet but has a real community feel with cafes, newsagents, a small supermarket and even an ATM machine and public telephones. Unlike most apartments, we have balconies to both the front and rear, meaning not only that the property is extremely light, but we can sunbathe at any time of the day.

                                                            very large apartment but needs a little upgrading

                                                            Terry A.

                                                            The 6 flights of stairs proved to be a problem. Okay if you are fit and healthy but not suitable for older guests. Impressed with the space in the apartment and there are 2 new sofas and new curtains, but the cutlery, mugs and saucepans could do with being replaced and maybe ask the caretaker to check that guests have washed them properly before new guests arrive. We had to wash everything before we could use them. Vanda was cheerful and helpful and helped us carry 3 heavy suitcases up all the stairs.

                                                            Lovely Lagos

                                                            Suzanne B.

                                                            We enjoyed this comfortable apartment, our weather was very mixed so we spent more time in than we normally do. It is in an area we had stayed before with lots of lovely cafes and restaurants nearby. It is about a 10 to 15 minutes walk into town which suited us well but there is also a bus which passes by which goes to Porto Mos beach or into town.

                                                            Nice apartment, plenty of space, but a little tired

                                                            Ray F.

                                                            The apartment is well laid out and spacious, but the curtains in the main bedroom were dirty and falling off the hooks. Lights in the bathroom work intermittently and the toilet flush is faulty. The building is a little noisy and the smell of other apartments cooking pervaded our space.

                                                            The only decent restaurant in the locality closed for six weeks the day we arrived, so eating out meant a fairly long walk or a drive.

                                                            The kitchen has plenty of equipment, but again, blunt knives and worn out pans could be easily fixed.

                                                            Overall, we enjoyed our stay but there are some simple improvements that could be made.

                                                            Fantastic apartment in great location

                                                            Elaine P.Livingston Montana

                                                            Truly lovely apartment with all the amenities. Walking distance to the center of town and great location in Lagos for exploring beaches and coastal sites. Parking right out your door and easy access to grocery store and restaurants.

                                                            Lovely Spacious Apartment

                                                            John M.

                                                            This is a lovely spacious apartment in a quiet area convenient to Lagos town and the local beaches. Balconies front and rear mean that is bright and airy and cool even in August. Thanks to Mike who was responsive and helpful prior to our trip and and also to Vanda who keeps the apartment spotless.
