About Alan Taylor

We are a married couple from SW Scotland in our early 50s. We both work seperately my wife as a pharmacist and I work in property development and rentals.We first visited Lagos with friends in 2006. Though it was only a 3 day visit we knew straight away that we would be back at some stage. (we bought the apartment a few months later) We try to visit Lagos as many times in a year as work allows and have had many enjoyable short breaks in and out of season to re charge our batteries.

Alan Taylor purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Alan Taylor chose Lagos Town

Condominio Do mar was the first apartment we looked at and after viewing many more we decided that it ticked all the boxes for us.

We liked the location due to the short walk to the beaches and town and also the night life.Whilst we enjoy the odd lively night out we also enjoy the peace and quiet of Condominio Do Mar, being able to relax and take in the fantastic view from our balcony. The security was also important especialy as some of our guests have young children.

Worth every penny

  • 5 of 5

A 5th floor view is the first thing that attracts you. Then you look round and notice there is everything in the apartment that is needed for a comfortable stay. We spent 4 weeks there and nothing was too much trouble for the owner Alan. I would recommend anyone to stay at this apartment, you get your money's worth.

Meia Praia a sandy 3-mile stretch of gently sloping beach is only 10 minutes walk away with beach bars and restaurants open for lunch and evening meals as well as snacks throughout the day. There are other secluded unspoilt beaches along the West Coast. Grottos and coves, miles of cliff top coastal walks, from surf dudes and kite surfers to the skinny dippers and nudists - there are beaches for everyone.


By road: Lagos is approx 45mins drive from Faro airport. Taxi and coach transfers are available from the airport.By raill: Take a 7 euro taxi journey from the airport to Faro Station and catch a train to Lagos. It's a journey that takes about 1 hour by car/bus and 11/2 train . Lagos station is located behind the Marina and within walking distance of the apartment. Car hire is an option and is good value, especially if you want to explore further. contact owner for reasonable transfer details.


Portimao - 20 mins drive. Albufeira - 30 mins drive. Vilamoura - 40 mins drive. Burgau – 20 mins drive. Slide and splash water park – 30 mins drive.

Further Details:

The Municipal Sports Centre is a few minutes walk away and has a competition sized indoor pool and large state of the art gym. Classes are available daily. Excursions can be booked on the Marina ranging from sailing to power boating, from dolphin safaris to grotto trips and many more. Keeping our younger guests entertained is easily done with two water parks in the area, Zoo Marine - where you can swim with the dolphins, and Lagos Zoo with over 120 species of animal living in natural habitats. The Algarve promises a fantastic climate and year round sunshine. Lagos has something going on all year round. The historic Old Town with its warren of twisted cobbled streets contrasts its sophisticated restaurants with small local eating places tucked in the back of beyond. There is a restaurant to suit all budgets and tastes - you would struggle to find a bad restaurant! Jazz clubs, night clubs, bars, cafes, shops and boutiques blend with the mixture of historical buildings and Moorish architecture.
