About Claire

We live in Sheffield with our two teenage boys and have already enjoyed numerous holidays on Boavista. I am sure you will have as much enjoyment out of your holiday as we have.

My name is Claire and I manage the bookings of our apartment. I pride myself in making your booking very easy and hassle free, whilst giving you the confidence that you are booking a holiday that meets your requirements. I can also arrange car hire or taxis for your duration with a company I use on a regular basis who offer me a very reliable service at very competitive price.

I have taken great care in furnishing the apartment.

I am sure you will enjoy our second home and won't think twice about returning, as the majority of my guests come back to my lovely apartment at some stage.

Claire purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Claire chose Lagos Town

We have enjoyed numerous holidays in Portugal returning time after time to this lovely country. The local people are among one of the friendliest I have ever met. Lagos is only 40 minutes drive from Faro airport. If you want to venture out of the resort there are numerous attractions for all ages and fabulous beaches along the vast coastline. The historic town of Lagos is truly picturesque offering something for everyone. The cobble streets are lined with cafes, restaurants and shops and you can enjoy the street entertainers in the evening. The marina offers a different feel offering different types of boat trips.

What makes this apartment unique

The golf clubhouse staff are very welcoming and the food is excellent. It provides a very warm and friendly base to catch up with friends and family staying on Boavista. The pool is so handy being close to the apartment and the children are very safe. Close by you can enjoy the tennis courts, childrens playground and the indoor gym and spa facilities. The golf course is one of several challenging courses close by. There is ample marked parking bays right outside the apartment. I have recommended places to visit, restaurants to eat in along with my guests recommendations but I am sure you will enjoy exploring the area.

Beautiful property at Boa Vista

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with excellent facilities. Great location particularly for golfers. Also ideal for non golfers with pool across the road and beaches within easy reach. Lagos town 10 minute drive or taxi ride away so great for nights out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment interior was beautiful and had everything we needed during our stay, including pool/beach accessories which are great when have children in your party. We didn't use the air conditioning as the apartment remained cool enough throughout the day/eve for us. The views over the golf course made outdoor dining very relaxing and peaceful and when my husband played the course itself he found it to be a generous course with very strong par 3's. The town of Lagos and it's beach was very accessible by car, with some lovely shops and restaurants. Overall we had a very relaxing stay, which was also aided by the owners being so helpful with the booking etc. we would live to return in the future.

Loved It !

  • 4 of 5

We don't normally go back to places we have stayed at before for fear it will not be as good second time around but my wife was keen to revisit Boavista. We loved it probably more than the first time due to the quality of the accomodation and surroundings.Despite several years having passed the complex seemed just as new as it is maintained to a very high standard.

The apartment was spacious and immaculately clean throughout.An extremely well-equiped kitchen if you chose to cater for yourselves on occasions. Very comfortable living and dining area.

Ideally located adjacent to the swimming pool for an early morning dip. The ground floor garden is a wonderfully relaxing setting overlooking the 17th fairway and green. Ideal for breakfast or even just to sit in all day and watch the golfers as they pass by (perhaps with a glass or two of wine).

Very quick access to local supermarkets and numerous fabulous beaches.....Praia de Porto de Mos takes some beating. Lots of restaurants if you wish to eat out.....our favourite is still "Fernando" on the sea front.

Claire was always prompt and helpful in reply to any queries we had beforehand regards our booking.The idea of a third visit is not beyond the realms of possibility!

Praia de Dona Ana
Car: recommended


The beaches around Lagos are some of the most beautiful of the Algarve, like Praia de Dona Ana, which can be reached after a 15 minutes walk, Praia do Camilo, a bit further on, and Meia Praia, whose sands stretch for 4 km east of Lagos. However, it is the promontory named Ponta da Piedade and sheltering the bay of Lagos which is most admired by visitors, with its caves, rocks and wonderfully transparent waters. North of Lagos, Barragem de Bravura is a water reservoir offering fine views.


Faro international is the nearest airport facilitated by numerous airlines. Car hire is recommended and Boavista Golf Resort is a 45 minute drive from the airport easily reached via the motorway. A train/taxi service is also available.

I would be pleased to provide you with a quote for car hire from a company I use on a regular basis who are based at the airport and are very reasonable and reliable.


The historic town of Lagos is within 5 minutes drive of the apartment. Fabulous beaches - Praia Da Luz, Praia D'Ana, Meia Praia are a short drive away, as is the local supermarket, Intermache.

The mountain town of Monchique is approx a 40 minute drive. Heading west the picturesque fishing villages of Salema and Burgau are a 15 minute drive. Sagres, the most south westerly point in continental Europe Cape St Vincent is around a 40 minute drive.

Please see our website (details below) for further details, photos and links. Flights, car hire, golf, excursions are happily arranged upon request at not extra charge as I am here to make booking your holiday as hassle free as possible.
