|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
The house has an independent entrance from the street, next to the owner's private garage. A spacious living room opened unto a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. Top floor has a small study at the top of the stairs and a wonderful terrace, well equipped and not overlooked.
By 1992 most of the historical centre of town (where I have lived since the late 60') had become pedestrian and it was obvious that cars would have to be kept out of the streets. I also needed an extra storage for my work.
Eventually bought an old house, few meters from home, which I demolished to build a garage... Hence the existence of the "little pink house" ("wee house" as some of the regulars call it!).
It was a very exciting project, completely within my work & experience and it put me back on my feet after the sudden death of my Portuguese husband.
With knowledge of the local climate through the year and the needs on a rental property for holidays I wanted to make sure it would be good enough for me if I had to live in it myself.
It is set in a very quiet environment, with pleasant local neighbours and my new husband and I (now both retired) make a challenge to keep it in prime conditions and assure that each of our guest have an enjoyable stay.
ideal for a busy couple who wants peace and easy access to all town's activities
This our 10th visit" Anne & John in 2007 still come at least once a year!
Excellent rapport quality Home from Home
Clients come back over and over saying this is home from home. We have some who have been regular once or twice every year since the house was completed. all kind of country of origin: France, UK, Canada, U.S.A., Belgium, Portugal & Spain , Switzerland .
Lovely very well equipped house in an excellent location. Stayed here in September 2015 and we were so lucky to have found this home on owners direct. The sun terrace really is the icing on the cake as it is a sun trap and so private. Would have no hesitation in recommending this home from home to anyone and hope to stay here again when we return to Lagos. The owners are a lovely welcoming helpful couple.
This is a lovely place to stay - a short walk from the centre of Lagos, in easy reach of restaurants, market, beach, marina, etc. The accommodation has been really well thought out and the house remains cool even on the hottest day. There is easy parking behind the house but you do not need a car as everything is within easy walking distance. It is equipped with everything you could need and definitely not your standard rental property. The icing on the cake is the roof terrace which is very private, sheltered and well maintained. We were returning to Lagos and this was a perfect home away from home for us. The hosts are most attentive but not at all intrusive - we thoroughly recommend this house and we will be returning!
We keep in mind a perfect holiday in the pink House in Lagos, hopefully we can come back again.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Lagos dans cette adorable maison si joliment décorée. Elle est idéalement située, à la fois au calme et proche du centre, très bien équipée et propre. Merci à la propriétaire pour ses bons conseils et sa gentillesse.
Special interest holidays:
There are plenty of choices for beaches, some walking distance. Surfing, fishing, dolphin watch and other boat trips... Riding, very good walks along the cliffs or in the countryside. Interesting trips in land, on the hills and along the coast.
The nearest beach is under 10 minutes walk. Or a 5kms long in the bay, 10 minutes walk to it or over the river with a small ferry during the summer.
Many very good spots for surfing and windsurf and kiting.
Faro airport is 80 kms away by motorway.
You can either rent a car (not needed once you are staying in town !). There are good taxis and a choice of Shuttle services from the airport .There are also trains from the down town Faro.
Sagres at the far West point is only 30 kms away and is the historic place from where the Caravelas started on their search to the route to India with Vasco da Gama in the XVIth century. Silves 25km the old capital of the Algarve. Monchique the highest point of the area, lovely vegetation.
Lagos is a small and busy fishing town and you can buy the catch of the day at the local market (33 fish mongers and 2 butchers!). Fish and fruit -vegetable markets are fantastic. Great place for "foodies"! The town has a lot of activities cafes and bars, restaurants , museums, theatre, so it has life all year round.
