Wonderful apartment, nice pool. Quiet location,very close to the sea & walking distance to Marina
Apartment has everything you would need (except microwave) including beach chairs and rings. Cool box was used daily. Weather we had was amazing, even used beach umbrella on last day! We have left a bodyboard to add to the collection too. Quiet location but a couple of beach bars nearby. Walking distance to Marina but takes about 20mins which we were happy to do for the sea view and beautiful gardens. The huge beach is just across the small railway line opposite but you hardly hear the trains. Very relaxing holiday.
Only downside was the poor Wifi in the apartment but we just used our own data allowance so not a big issue but may be for some. Would not hesitate to book Chris & Sue's lovely family home again.
This well kept and loved accommodation is immaculate. The owners attention to detail is obvious. Very warm in ambience and welcoming indeed. The location is superb for the beach, harbour and town, with a local bus service very nearby for good transport links at a low cost. Many a night spent on the spacious balcony overlooking the ocean. Highly recommended.
Bathroom in main bedroom was problem with the door inside the room
Overlooks the sea across beach road and dunes. Approximately 100m to walk onto the beach. Beach is beautiful golden sand with a number of excellent beach bars (nearest is approximately 200m from apartment).
Casa do Pinhal is located about 2 km from the centre of Lagos town, an easy stroll along the beach and then ferry across the river mouth. There is a good quality path along the road into the marina and a bridge across the river to the town. Otherwise local buses stop outside the complex approximately 150m from apartment, and taxis are cheap. The famous Lagos Marina is just at the end of the beach road where there are numerous bars and restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets.
West of Lagos the villages are quiet and offer small secluded beaches and bays. Surfing on the West coast is less than 40 minutes drive. Inland, the towns of Silves and Monchique are worth a visit.
The apartment is about 1 km from a large supermarket, with a small local store about 500m. The nearest beach bar is less than 5 minutes stroll, and several others are within 15 minutes walk in either direction along the beach. Recommended restaurants can be found next door to the complex on either side, but there are many dozens of excellent eating places in Lagos town. We have many recommendations and ideas in the apartment. For the active, a wind surf centre across the road from the apartment offers wind surfing lessons. Bicycles are available for hire in the town for road and mountain bikers.
