Lagos, one of the most popular towns in the Algarve is a top holiday destination and has it all! From history to culture, beaches and climate to a lively, easygoing and friendly atmosphere all year round. Steeped in history it was from here that Henry the navigator set sail on his discoveries along with many other Portuguese explorers.

A walk across the Marina footbridge will lead you into the heart of the old town where you will find a very quaint typically Portuguese town with narrow cobbled streets and many shops, bars and restaurants and entertainment. There are many places of interest to visit such as museums, churches, historical monuments, mini-zoo and activities to do in and around Lagos such as boat trips along the coast, dolphin tours, fishing, surfing, diving, kayaking, mini-golf and much more.

Lagos is easy to reach from Faro or Lisbon airport with direct bus routes.


The Algarve, situated on the extreme South of Portugal, offers gorgeous sandy beaches, warm water and glorious sunshine nearly all year-round with around 300 days of sunshine a year and idyllic temperatures average temperature in winter of 14ºC and 24ºC in summer, rarely going below 12ºC during winter and reaching as high as 28ºC or 30ºC in July and August, which are ideal for playing golf and other sports.

Encosta da Marina luxury apartment No. 6492133 / 1 bedroom apartment next to the Meia Praia beach and Marina with great city and harbour views.

Carla & José (Lagos Best Holidays) purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Carla & José (Lagos Best Holidays) chose Lagos Town

We bought this property as a second home because it was in such a peaceful and tranquil area but close enough to town and beach to go for long walks when spending weekends there. Wonderful for retreats, families and couples.

What makes this apartment unique

Lovely spacious open plan ground floor apartment with a patio that leads out to the mature garden and swimming pool in a tranquil area and conveniently close to town centre, boat marina, golf courses and beaches.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Carla and José,

Although we left your Albardeira apartment already two weeks ago it is

to us like only yesterday.

We enjoyed our stay in your very well maintained and comfortable

apartment a lot and had a good time there. Besides, Lagos is a very good

place for a holiday and we liked it better than the other (big) cities

on the coast we visited.

Special thanks to José for his good ideas where to go and what to see,

and also for interesting explanations of tourism of the Algarve coast

etc. which we appreciated a lot.

After leaving your apartment we travelled along the Algarve coast to the

Spanish border and followed the Rio Guadiana to Mertola, where we spent

two days, and from there to Lisbon, where we also spent some days. So we finally came back home last week.

We will recommend your apartment to our friends who have already

travelled on the Algarve coast but have not been to Lagos.

Thanks a lot again for a great stay, and perhaps we come again one day

(when I am retired and have more time for travelling ;-) ).

Kind regards,

M & U

Close to everything ...yet far enough out of the centre for peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We were three senior ladies andCarla and Jose apartment was perfect for our needs . It was extremely clean and well stocked . ( The welcome bottle of wine was most appreciated ,!!) it's much larger than it looked on the web site.

Jose was there to great us , and gave us many tips on we're to shop and some great restaurants to eat . . The gardener Jose

was also very helpful and spoke exceptional English .

We had a super time , I know most people think you need a car ,but we walked everywhere. We also used the bus and the train .. We took the bus to Burgau and then walked along the cliffs to Luz . The views were breathtaking and the spring flowers , wild thyme ,rosemary and lavender .took our breath away. On another day we walked from Lagos to Luz along the cliffs . Again we were left speechless at the beauty . We then took the bus back to Lagos.

I had the most incredible duck dinner at a restaurant called Forja . There were 5 of us and we had 2 1/2 portions and there was food left over . (8.95 € ) a portion. It is a speciality on Sunday's for lunch and they fill up fast ,so come early ., they are closed for a few months in winter and had just opened again in mid March when we were there .

I would highly recommend Carla and Jose's apartment to anyone for a long term stay in beautiful Lagos

Luxurious, and clean

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this appartement with our two young children; even had high chair and crib, sand toys and other items for children. It was easy to find by car; about a 20 min walk to Lagos Marina/Old town. The appartement was immaculate; clean and well kept, just like the pictures. Loved the Algarves, this condo made it enjoyable to come home too. Will recommend to friends and family, will stay here again. Thanks for being accommodating José and Carla!

Erholsamer Urlaub in tollen Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Obwohl ich als Alleinreisender unterwegs war, habe ich mir den Luxus dieses Apartments gegönnt und war total begeistert.

Schon bei der Ankunft erwies sich Jose als äußerst netter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber und gab wertvolle Tipps für Ausflüge oder auch Restaurants. Zur Begrüßung waren ein leckerer Obstkorb, kalte Getränke im Kühlschrank und eine Flasche portugisischer Rotwein bereitgestellt.

Der Einrichtungsstil ist zwar Geschmackssache, aber das Apartment war sehr sauber und hatte allles an Einrichtung, was man so braucht, auch in der Küche. Der Fernseher hat zwar keine deutschsprachigen Programme, dafür funktionierte das WLAN in der gesamten Wohnung sehr gut.

Sehr schön war die Aussicht in den Garten, die vor allem beim Frühstück oder auch beim abendlichen Glas Wein sehr zu geniesen ist.

MIt dem Auto ist man in wenigen Minuten in Lagos an der Marina. Dort kann man kostenlos parken und erreicht über die Fußgängerbrücke schnell das Zentrum. Will man aufs Auto verzichten, kann man in ca. 15 Minuten auch in den Ort laufen.

Alles in allem ein sehr erholsamer Urlaub in einem schönen Apartment, das ich auf alle Fälle weiterempfehlen kann.

Perfect place for family

  • 5 of 5

Spędziliśmy wspaniały tydzień korzystając ze świetnie wyposażonego mieszkania, basenu i bliskości wybrzeża. Do doskonała baza wypadowa do odwiedzenia pięknych zatoczek, parków rozrywki oraz Przylądka Św. Wincentego. W apartamencie jest wszystko, co potrzebne, by odpocząć i skorzystać z lokalnych przysmaków. Możecie również liczyć na wskazówki i pomoc Jose, który powie, jakie miejsca warto odwiedzić i gdzie udać się po zakupy.
