About Paula Matos

I am Portuguese living in England with my husband and two boys aged 13 and 15. My husband and I both work, but since buying our home in Lagos we tend to escape there every opportunity possible,however lately due to schooling commitments we finding it harder to go away as often, hence we decided to rent our holiday home purchased in 2011

We truly love everything about Lagos, the fantastic views to the Marina,watching the boats sailing by while sipping a nice Portuguese wine sitting on our balcony.

Everything happens at the Marina where our apartment is situated with lots of restaurants,bars, shops,etc.

Nothing more relaxing then watching the sunset while having a drink all fresco.

We have our happiest times as a family spent in Lagos.

Lovely apartment with great views and close to all amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Let's get the only negative out the way first. The internet worked fine for 90% of the time but occasionally went very slow which did affect the uk TV.

In spite of the one negative I still need to give this apartment 5 stars. The apartment and balcony is large. It has all been redecorated very tastefully and was immaculate when we arrived. The position could not be better. A short walk to the supermarket one way and another short walk into town the other. If you want breakfast you have a choice of about 10 places within 200 meters. Although the restaurants are close to the apartment we suffered very little noise day or night. We love fish so we spent the whole two weeks shopping at the local fish market and cooking in the apartment. Our daughter and son in law joined us for a few days but they enjoyed eating at a different restaurant every night. The sun only gets on the balcony late in the afternoon but whenever we checked around the swimming pool there was always sun loungers available.

Paula arranged our transfers to and from Faro airport and these worked perfectly. There was a slight hiccup when we got to the apartment and could not get in but Paula answered her phone, sorted things out and apologised.

We had a lovely time and hope to return next year.

Great apartment with the wow factor. Decor is modern & stylish but also well equipped & comfortable. Super location & views but far away from hussle & bussle to get a peaceful nights sleep.

To sum it up loved our stay & would go back in a heart beat

A beautifully decorated, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully decorated, spacious apartment in a great location overlooking the harbour.

There was an array of restaurants and bars just 2 mins walk away within the harbour complex, and both the old town and beach were both short 10 minute strolls.

The apartment was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday, and had a well stocked kitchen if you desire to cook. The swimming pool was again just a 2 min walk from the apartment and we were able to find sun loungers at whatever time we arrived (during Mid-August).

The views from the balcony were stunning, and as the apartment is on the second level the balcony was nicely shaded during the mid-day sun, with the sun reaching the balcony by late afternoon.

There was plenty of space within the apartment and on the balcony to accommodate 2 families or a group of friends.

We would definitely recommend this apartment.

An ideal base for a relaxing family holiday, well maintained, clean & spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday, the apartment is ideally located with a view of the marina that is stunning. There are plenty of bars and restaurants close by & the old town is only a short walk away. That said, the apartment is very peaceful and you can relax quite happily on the generous balcony.

The pool next door was a good size with plenty of loungers & it's literally a 2 min walk away.

We appreciated the generously proportioned apartment which acted as a real home from home. It's very modern & clean, with everything needed for a relaxing break.

Really beautiful contemporary apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience booking a privately owned apartment and it went so smoothly we have already booked for next year. Paula is a joy to deal with the whole experience was super secure from booking to the deposit refund. The apartment is in an incredible location overlooking the marina and the view is stunning. We were 5 mins walk from the bars and restaurants. The apartment is modern and spotlessly clean. The wifi which was an essential for our teenager was strong and never let us down. We had lots of English tv channels including sports channels so it felt home away from home. The balcony is huge with three sunbeds so if you feel like a lazy day with a beautiful view then you need never leave the apartment. The bedrooms are modern with great storage and each has air conditioning. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this apartment.

Absolutely breathtaking.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family. Four adults travelling together. It's is very comfortable and well furnished. The kitchen is well stocked. The grocery store is a ten minute walk away. They have fantastic wines which we really enjoyed.

The property around the marina is alive with people and restaurants. The marina is so beautiful it's breathtaking. We enjoyed many meals on the balcony watching the sun set. The pool is large and has many lounge chairs with cover from the sun if wanted.

Your vacation here can be as busy or as quiet as you like. There's lots to find to do or you can just enjoy the apartment and marina area itself.

Overall I can't say enough good things about this property. It was very clean and well maintained.

We did have a little trouble finding the actual apartment. We drove around the property a few times before we found the right one. Our GPS told us we were here but we were unable to find the actual apartment.

I hope we'll be able to come back one day.
