About The Owner

We are a Belgian retired couple leaving a great part of the year in Portugal in the same Residence as the apartment for rent.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2016

Why The Owner chose Porto de Mós

When looking for our own retirement place in 2014 we visited many apartments all around Algarve and in particular around Lagos and found in love with this brand new Residence for its unique setting, its unspoiled environment and the large & bright inside living space.

We managed later to acquire a second apartment which, after a 12 months rental ending June 30, is available for friends and guests in the same unique Residence.

What makes this apartment unique

The Residence and apartment also offer a wide range of outstanding benefits : beautiful architecture, large terrace with uninterrupted views on ocean and nature, a very large landscaped & tropical garden, an outdoor pool, a heated indoor pool, a jacuzzi, a sauna and a gym.

The Residence has also parking spaces in front of the door.

Great holiday!

  • 4 of 5

The facilities are very good and Dominic and Michel are great hosts. They are very proud in what they have achieved and want that they guests have the best experience possible.

If there is only one thing that can be improved is regarding to the cleaning during the stay as the house was spotless when we arrived. In my opinion the apartment should be clean every 4 days and the bed linen and towels changed (we have stayed 11 days and nothing was changed).

Will stay there again!!!

Owner's Response: We believe there is a misunderstanding and we just wish to specify the following to our guests : Our rental agreement mentions that a weekly housekeeping service is provided for a stay of at least 14 days. In practice, we are much more flexible and offer a mid-term service for stays over 10 days if the guests do not mind to be disturbed. In the particular case, we have been in direct contact with the family several times during their stay and have each time asked if everything was ok and also replied immediately to a request they had, but the question of additional service was not raised. Otherwise, we would have done it with pleasure. So we are sorry again for the misunderstanding.

Great Apartment with very helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is brilliant and the sea view is great. It is just a three minute walk to the beach, which has one really good value restaurant and you have the perfect base for your holiday. Being a 5 minute drive from Lagos meant there was easy access to the marina and all the shops and restaurants that surround it. Highlight for me had to be watching the sunset from the top of the Foia mountain. Finally Michel and Dominique were really helpful even when it came to the most random of things they had some really useful advice, they put a lot of effort in to make our stay as comfortable as possible including finding a space to store the bikes that we hired.

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are veteran vacation renters with homeaway, and this is by far the very best place we have rented in 9 years of beach vacations!

Everything is as described and pictured - and more! Michel and Dominique are absolutely delightful hosts (they spent about an hour upon our arrival showing us around), and they have anticipated every need: for instance, there are dedicated towels for the beach, for the pool and for the house, beach chairs and umbrella, lounge chairs for the pool and for the terrasse. All the apartment amenities (a/c, linens, appliances, TV) are top of the line. The apartment is very roomy, the private terrasse is huge, and we dined al fresco pretty much every meal, enjoying the view of the landscaped gardens, the cliffs, and the sea beyond, with nice sea breezes to cool us down.

The complex is small and quiet, and all residents are extremely respectful so it never felt crowded (it was still child-friendly though), and the view is simply outstanding. The beach is amazing, golden sands and spectacular cliffs, and an easy 5-minute walk from the apartment. We enjoyed a lovely meal at Antonio's on the beach. We took long walks on the cliffs and enjoyed the old town of Lagos.

We enjoyed having a car (off-street parking was always available and felt safe), to go grocery shopping and take small trips to other neighboring towns (Salema is worth a visit) or other beaches (Do Camilo is stupendous, but gets crowded fast; Meia Praia is nice if you like uninterrupted long stretches of white beach with few waves) but taxis are extremely cheap in Portugal, so it could be possible to make do without. We are already thinking about going back next year!

6 Sterne für Dominique und Michel

  • 5 of 5

Wunderbares Appartement, alles vorhanden. Die Aussicht ist die beste in Lagos. Die Residenz ist etwas abgelegen und sehr ruhig. Dominique und Michel sind reizende Vermieter und besorgt, dass alles stimmt. Wir kommen demnächst wieder.
