Hi my name is John Barnard, I live and work in Norfolk, England with my wife and our pet dog Millie. Our two children have grown up now but still visit us regularly or decide to come home to stay for a while!. Having spent many golfing holidays on the Costa del Sol Spain we decided to visit the Algarve for the first time in 2006. We instantly fell in love with the country and its people, so much so that we decided to invest in property here in Lagos. We bought our first two brand new properties at Porto de Mos which were ready for rental in July 2008, our second two which are closer to the old town of Lagos and the Praia Dona Ana beach were new for the 2010 season. We would love you to share our experiences of this truly lovely area of the Algarve.
John Barnard purchased this apartment in 2010
Villa Ancora is a new development in Porto de Mos but very close to the centre of Lagos, although not overlooking the sea, there are award winning beaches within easy walking distance as well as shops and restaurants. Lagos is one of the up and coming tourist destinations which is receiving serious investment in its infrastructure with improvments to its town centre and marina as well as the new motorway links to Faro airport.
The two apartments at Villa Ancora are closely linked so can sleep up to a maximum of 12 people. Beautifully furnished they offer a welcoming retreat should you be staying for a summer holiday, a long term winter let or an activity break. The apartments are managed for us locally by an English family Company (Algarve Accommodation Agency) meaning there is always someone on hand to meet and greet and help resolve any issues during your stay. Once you have decided to stay in one of the apartments the agency will issue a booking form, take secure deposits and take you through your reservation to completion.
We had a fantastic stay,the apartment is beautiful,the photos really don't do it justice.Openplan lounge and kitchen which is beautifully furnished and has every mod con you can think of including instruction manuals.Wifi is excellent important when you have teenagers!
Lovely main bedroom with ensuite and balcony.2nd bedroom also good with another bathroom directly opposite.Air con in all main rooms very good.Out from kitchen is another balcony with lovely large dining table and chairs which leads directly out onto pool area (lockable gate).Had pool to ourselves a lot of the time but was never that busy,also nice jacuzzi as well.
John was very helpful with our booking as were the agency he used who fixed a lightbulb very quickly during our stay when we asked.
Main part of Lagos is about 15 minute walk but very nearby 2 mins walk is aparthotel with restaurant (buffet and a la carte) and 5 min walk are 3 restaurants one quite posh one not so but food and 1 Chinese which was excellent,also small supermarket which stocked most things.
Overall an excellent stay and we are very tempted to return.The quality of the furnishings and decor is top-notch.
We spent a most enjoyable 9 day break here (2 adults and 2 children aged 6 and 10.) The apartment was easy to find, spacious, spotless and well equipped. The children really enjoyed the pool and the apartment received plenty of sunshine on the two terraces and poolside. We had a hire car and explored the local area, finding many lovely beaches and restaurants a short walk or drive away. We also took the train to Faro for a day. We would highly recommend a grotto boat trip from Lagos to explore the caves and coastline and we were very privileged to have dolphins jumping alongside our boat on the day we went. We had excellent communications with the owner and agent and would highly recommend the apartment and its location for family holidays.
We have stayed in this apartment several times over the last few years on our own and with family including Grandchildren. This is a beautiful, modern well equipped and maintained apartment.
It is within walking distance of Lagos with it's great atmosphere restaurants and cafes. Also close by is the family friendly beach of Porto D Moss with it's excellent fish restaurant altogether a great location.
We would highly recommend the Ancora Apartment we have always had a great time in comfortable safe surroundings
Its only a 5 minute walk or drive to the award winning Praia de Dona Ana beach where you can also enjoy a snack or cool drink.
The area boasts some great beaches at Meia Praia and Port de Mos. A visit to the lighthouse on the peninsula at Ponta Da Piedade is also well worthwhile.
The nearest International Airport is at Faro about 75km away and takes about 50 minutes by car via the A22 dual carriageway. Many major airports offer flights to and from Faro (budget airlines included). The whole of the Algarve is very easy to navigate and the best way to travel is by hire car. A hire car is easy to arrange and most useful if staying at the apartments for exploring the area, shopping at local supermarkets etc. A visit to the restaurants and bars in Lagos is possible by foot.
All approximate distances: 10 miles / 16km. Historic town of Lagos just 0.75km away. Faro 80km. Faro Airport 75km. Albufeira 50km. Villamoura 60km. Spain 120km.
Villa Ancora is located next door to the Ancora PADI Scuba Diving Centre
