About the property

Apartment in Lagos, Algarve - With Balconies, Sea Views and Roof Terrace

Extremely spacious, 2 bedroom, 2nd floor apartment. Very large and well presented with 3 balconies with sea views to front and rear. There is a roof terrace immediately above which is great for barbecues and has wonderful views all round. 10 minutes walk to town centre, 10 minutes walk to beach and 3 minutes drive to Boavista golf course. The apartment is situated in a pleasant tree lined square with ample free parking. There are several nice cafes, shops and restaurants in the square, including O Brasao, which is literally opposite the front door of the apartments.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so happy when we realised what a great choice we had made in selecting this wonderful apartment. You have both made such an effort to provide everything anyone would need to make a holiday special. The apartment was spotless and such a joy to stay in. We would definitely come back. SB Kent

Lovely spacious apartment, more like a home than just a holiday property. JW Derby

Really lovely apartment - great that it is walking distance to lots of fantastic beaches. Loved Camilo and Pinhao. Lovely swimming, snorkelling and vcaves to explore. A very beautiful coastline. Thank you. B Suffolk

We had a fantastic holiday - flat was everything we wanted, locals are very friendly. Loved sitting on all the balconies - great to have the sun all day! We will certainly be back in Lagos and this apartment. We will certainly recommend to our friends. MM Ayrshire

Lovely Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

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.

Like a second home. Very large. Well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about this apartment. Location, comfort all excellent. We were to retired ladies and did wonder about the stairs to the apartment but once our cases were in (which Vanda carried up for us) they were not a problem and we got up them much quicker by the end of our stay. I would have quite happily stayed. On for the rest of the summer. A good bus service to take you all over with bus stops just around the corner but it really is not far to walk to the town and we never had the need to get a taxi home. Very pleased to have found this large comfy apartment. Thank you.

Wonderful appartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

In our case, we just chose this appartment pretty much arbitrarily. I don't think we could have made a better choice. It is very nice, clean, well kept up. All the amenities work well: washing machine, internet, television, etc. There are balconies on all sides, so there is always somewhere where we can sit in the sun. The area is very nice, quiet, and peaceful. Walks to the different beaches and to the old town really are only 15-20 minutes at most. The appartment is an excellent combination of a great appartment and a great location. Sometimes you have one or the other, but both together is really nice. Vanda, the caretaker that comes in once a week to change the sheets and clean the appartment is very nice, helpful, and friendly. The owners have been responsive and very good to us. Thank you, Mike & Thelma & Vanda. We really loved it here.
