Penthouse Apartment in Meia Praia, Lagos, Western Algarve, Portugal - Beach Front
About Jon Butler
We are both full time working professionals who enjoy the Lagos area of the Algarve immensely for sport and leisure. We have invested in this beautiful apartment so that we and others can enjoy and share the location 12 months of the year. Our family use the apartment for short weekend breaks as well as planned holidays, the rest of the time we make it available to holiday makers who enjoy quality finishings in a completely furnished apartment.

Beautiful condo overlooking the ocean
The condo was lovely with plenty of space and all the amenities. The views were beautiful and the beach is at your doorstep. It is very close to town with a golf course next door.
The property manager Gail was excellent and responded to any questions/concerns immediately.
The parking garage is challenging and one has to be very careful parking.
We would definitely rent this property again should we return to Lagos.
Excellent quality and position
Everything you wanted was there, superb location and quality.
The Welcome Pack was a godsend and the Keyholder Gail was so helpful who made us feel welcome.
La qualité de la location et l’accueil de Mme Mitchell ont grandement participé à la réussite de notre séjour. L’appartement est conforme à la description, d’une propreté irréprochable et parfaitement équipé .
La grande terrasse ainsi que le solarium avec vue sur mer , la piscine, le garage fermé ont été très appréciés.
Thank you for your very positive review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at our apartment.
The beaches around Lagos are amongst the most beautiful in the Algarve, none more so than Meia Praia Beach which is approx 200m from the apartment. It forms part of one of the largest bays in Europe and is a spectacular 5km of white sand. It's never too crowded and sun beds and parasols are available for hire. There are plenty of cafes and good restaurants on the beach. Within 5-10 minutes drive are numerous other family friendly beaches such as Dona Ana, Luz, Burgau, Camillo and Salema.
The nearest airport is Faro at around 70km. One can reach Lagos directly by motorway from Faro in about 45 minutes. There is also the Faro-Lagos train which stops at Meia Praia situated a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. Although car hire is not necessary as both beach and town are within easy walking distance, a car is recommended as there is so much to see and do in the Algarve. If you do not wish to hire a car we can recommend car hire companies or taxi/shuttle buses services.
It is a 35 minute walk (approx) along the road to the marina into the old charming town of Lagos. Alternatively the walk along the beach to Lagos is beautiful but will take you an extra 10-15 minutes. For those less energetic for 1.30 euro, you can catch the number 2 bus which stops across the road from the apartment, by the railway track. Timetables are posted at the bus stops but change seasonally.
Once in Lagos, enclosed within 5th century walls, Lagos is rich in historical buildings and Moorish architecture. It is packed with traditional and modern shops. On the narrow cobbled streets you will find cafes, restaurants and bars catering for all tastes. With its relaxed atmosphere and quiet charm Lagos is one of the most appealing locations in the Algarve. At night the old town comes alive with open-air stalls, street entertainers and artists. Five minutes drive from the apartment towards Lagos you will find an excellent supermarket - Pingo Doce. Here you find everything you need from fresh fish, meat and fruit to wines, freshly baked bread and pastries.
