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
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.
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
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
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
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.
Lovely apartment in a good location. Very well equipped
Coast/Beach: This apartment really is ideally situated for access to all the best beaches and coastline in the area, including Meia Praia, Praia Dona Ana, Ponto do Piedade and Porto De Mos to name but a few. Travel: Less than one hours drive from Faro Airport. There is a regular train service between Faro and Lagos. Further Details: Lagos is the ideal choice for almost all types of holiday. Whether you like to laze on the beach, play golf or engage in watersports. You can walk in literally breathtaking scenery or explore historic buildings. To get even more from your visit we would recommend hiring a car so that you can discover more of The Algarve, such as the beaches and fort at Sagres, or the beautiful countryside and spring waters at Caldes de Monchique.
