Funchal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A bright, high quality, modern 110 square metre apartment

You will love a holiday in this beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in historic Lagos. The apartment has everything you need including WIFI, UKTV and DVD, air-conditioning, dishwasher, lift, underground car parking to keep your car cool during the hot days and a family friendly pool. You can relax on the spacious balcony, which is accessible from all rooms, while enjoying music from the all-room sound system. Security in the building is high with the main entrance door having a security code and the flat a video entry.

We find the apartment very handy for the unique shops and great bars, both traditional and trendy. Restaurants are a highlight of a holiday in Lagos as they are varied, plentiful and good value. You can easily walk to the bustling marina and sandy beaches while four fantastic golf courses are a short drive away.

While you will want to explore for yourself the maze of streets that constitute the old town we are happy to share our recommendations for food, drinks and day trips. The apartment has an extensive guide which includes information on nearby beaches, golf courses, cultural outings, Lagos Zoo and Aqualand as well as our views on restaurants we return to each year.

Treat yourself to a holiday in Lagos in our splendid apartment but please just don't take our word for it. Read the reviews of the apartment as these are genuine comments that guests have left in our guest book.

Excellent spacious apartment for our 2 week break

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious with a large living area and balcony overlooking the pool on the 1st floor. Two good size bedrooms one en-suite and the bathroom right next to the twin room, a good size kitchen all with access to the balcony. Nice and quiet at night but only a short 10 minutes walk to the historic town centre and marina. Aldi supermarket only 100 yards down the road with 3 others in close proximity. A very nice pool area accessed from the basement garage were the alloted parking is, we did not use this as we decided not to hire a car as there is an excellent taxi service which we used to travel to the local golf courses, this worked brilliantly. The apartment was clean and tidy a change of bed linen and replacement towels was provided after our first week. A good selection of TV channels including Sky Sports and BT sports. Alison and Scott answered any queries we had quickly and were lovely to deal with and a number for the local management company was provided if any problems were to come up during the stay. Lagos has a great selection of restaurants which can be very busy a nice one at the marina is Quay Lagos over the bridge but there are to many to mention. A visit to the grottos on one of the boat trips is recommended. This is a very nice property and we would not hesitate to use it again many thanks Alison and Scott.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a fantastic apartment. It is the first time we have hired an apartment that looked exactly as the photos suggested. We loved everything about it and found it a very relaxing place to stay. We love walking so did not mind the walk into town or the marina. The fixtures, fittings and décor are first class. The pool area very quiet and peaceful. Having three supermarkets within walking distance is a bonus and you are spoilt for choice. We didn't cook but if you wanted to, you would find everything you needed in the kitchen. The main beach of Meia Praia is one of the best and Lagos old town is full of inviting restaurants and small shops. We had a hire car and although we have been before, we enjoyed visiting Burgau, Praia del Luz and Alvor. The apartment was clean and ready when we arrived around lunch time and the service provided by the management company (Steve) was exceptional. The iron was broken and a new one replaced immediately as well as a light bulb in the main bathroom. No problem finding the apartment and gaining entry from the information supplied. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and the service provided by the owner was helpful and professional.

First class apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was easily the best that we've stayed in. It has everything that you need and more and is very comfortable and spacious. It's very secure with underground car parking that is easily accessible from this apartment. A large balcony is accessible from all rooms. It's in a good location with two supermarkets within easy walking distance (one is next door) and its about a 15 minute walk to the marina and 20 minutes into central Lagos. The walk back is up a hill so it may not suit everyone.

Absolutely Stunning Apartment - Great Area !

  • 5 of 5

WoW where do i start ... this apartment was absolutely spot on - roomy, extremely clean, well furnished and equipped and we loved the huge balcony with access from all the rooms.

There are two supermarkets, well actually three nearby, Aldi next door but you cant see it or hear it from the apartment, you wouldnt know there was a supermarket there, also a Lidl about 5 mins walk away and just a little further on is Pingo Doce.

Lagos Town is about a 15 min walk or slightly less obviously depending on how quickly you walk ! There was many shops and restaurants, we liked sitting at one of the bars by the Marina in a evening and one lunchtime we decided to have lunch at Oasis which was excellent food including huge Ice Cream Sundae's There are many restaurants in the old town which was excellent to eat in, spoilt for choice.

We hired a car as we always do when going abroad, find it easier to get from the airport to the place where you are staying. At the apartment you have underground parking with your own designated parking space, this was excellent as it kept the car secure but mostly cool.

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment, its in a good location and we hope to return in the future.

Thank You ! x

Loely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a super apartment. Everything you could possible need from dishwasher, micorwave, washing machine and a tv with so many English channels you need not miss your faourite soap when you are away !!

You are within a couple of minutes walk of both Aldi and Lidl for those of you who prefer to self cater rather than eat out in one of the restaurants in town

The apartment is approx a 10 minute walk from the historic part of Lagos with its maze of narrow cobbled streets, quaint shops and many restaurants.

We found a different restaurant to eat in each night and we could not fault the food, choice, value for money and cleanliness of any of the restaurants.

The harbour and waterfront area are lovely with many seats for you to sit and watch the world go by.

We holidayed in December and although I knew we would not return home brown and sunburnt the blacony at the apartment was a suntrap in the afternoons and it was lovely to sit outside with a drink and relax.

The swimming pool looked lovely although we did not use it and I should imagine it would be great for a dip in the summer.

The underground parking at the apartment was a bonus. Meaning we could lock the hire car away and know it would still be there a few days later.

I would recommend this apartment with its bright clean modern feel for a break away in Portugal, take it from me you will not be disappointed. I will definately be booking again.

Owner's Response: Carol I'm so pleased you enjoyed the apartment and your holiday so much. Obviously we love the apartment but it's always pleasing to hear someone else has had a great holiday there too. We have tried to provide whatever holidaymakers want which is why we installed a dishwasher in the late summer, much to my delight! I would be pleased to welcome you back later this year.

A lazy time in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

Having enjoyed many holidays in rural France with their basic amenities this felt like a hotel suite rather than a holiday home. However, we soon adapted to the life style.

The facilities were perfect for having a relaxing break and we quickly fell into a 'lazy' routine - breakfast, shopping, lunch, swim, siesta, walk, dinner.

Having Aldi's nearby meant we did not have to carry bottles of water far but we preferred the Portuguese supermarket nearer town, especially its range of cakes.

The old town with its many shops and restaurants means that you can have a great choice of eating venues and we have no complaints about our choices.

Although we had a hired car we only used it twice during the holiday - to go to Luz (it was too hot to use the cliff top walk) and to Sagres - well worth a visit to the Fort and Lighthouse (the equivalent of Land's end).

We also took a boat trip to see the dolphins - which we did. Much better than last year on the Moray Firth where we saw none in a fortnight.

After a fortnight of sunshine we left very reluctantly.

If you have never been to Lagos before we thoroughly recommend it: the beaches are beautiful; the town centre is lively but safe; shops are varied; the restaurants are good quality and both quiet or lively bars are available. The flat is well situated to experience all Lagos has to offer while being away from it all in a residential neighbourhood.

Golf: There are three golf courses within easy reach: Boa Vista, Palmares and Parque da Floresta.
