Overview

Albardeira Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious And Light 3 Bedroom Beach Apartment, Fully Renovated 2012

This large, light and airy beach apartment has been fully renovated to a high standard of accommodation. The open hallway with cloakroom leads to a spacious living room with TV, DVD player, satellite TV (including Dutch TV channels), seating for all the family and sliding doors leading out onto a balcony terrace with seating. The beautiful kitchen has a dining table with seating for 6, a larder, SMEG oven, fridge freezer, Belfast sink and small balcony. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 double and one with 2 singles and each benefits from a private terrace or balcony and extensive wardrobe space. There is an extra fold out bed for a child. The stylish bathrooms both have large rain-showers and one also has a bath. There is Wifi available.

The apartment is situated at Meia Praia beach - in under 2 minutes walk you will be on one of the longest beaches in the Algarve, stretching for an impressive 4.5 km. That means that even in the height of season there is room for everybody and then some.

Meia Praia beach is well served with plenty of snack bars and restaurants that are open all day long and into the evening. The western end of the beach offers a good selection of water sports during the summer season.

The vastness of the horizon, the fantastic quality of the water and the wonderful views make Meia Praia a wonderful beach to visit.

Right next to the apartment is one of the most spectacular golf courses of the Algarve - Palmares Golf is set in a beautiful location, blending a perfect mix of links and parkland, with magnificent views over Lagos Bay and the Monchique mountains.

Beautiful, comfortable flat in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of an apartment within easy walking distance of the wonderful Meia Praia beach. It is beautifully laid out, with comfortable beds and furniture and plenty of space to relax in. The rooms are cool and shaded with blinds, and there are verandahs leading out from every room - so you can chase the sun or seek the shade! The owners kindly sent a guide book in advance via email, which was useful during our stay, and also laid on a welcome pack of wine, cheese, bread, etc - just what you need after journeying! We also appreciated the provision of beach towels which saved space in our luggage.

The nearby beach has a myriad of watersports for the fun-seeker and is also uncrowded and relaxing for those wanting a peaceful vacation, as it is so large. There are numerous beach cafes serving fresh meals as well as ice creams and cool drinks, and many offer sunbeds and shades - including four poster varieties for a little luxury!

The apartment is just a few minutes from lively Lagos, as it's easy to take the hourly bus service from the nearby stop, or you can take the ferry at the town-end of Meia Praia beach. The journey by taxi also costs around 5 euros. Or you can simply walk into town in around 20 minutes.

Lagos itself is fun with street entertainers and restaurants to suit all tastes - we did book a few in advance as we visited at peak time, but some (like the popular Garden Restaurant) were able to squeeze us in if we arrived early in the evening. The Old Town is elegant with narrow streets and white-washed churches and the Marina offers colourful street stalls, family-friendly pubs and essentials, such as the nearest supermarket.

Around Lagos, you can venture by boat to the grottos and spot dolphins, and the cute land-train can take you to the lighthouse and to some of the further beaches. It offers a hop on hop off facility, and also runs past the apartment.

All in all, this is a marvellous place to stay for a visit to lovely Lagos. Thank you to Stephanie and to Joao for making our stay so enjoyable.

very pleasant appartement, nearby the beach

  • 4 of 5

If you want to visit Lagos in a quiet place in july, try Meia Praia:you have a quick access to the long beach, you can rest on the terrace, you can reach the heart of Lagos in 10 mns by car and enjoy the little places to drink fresh lemonades. Don't forget to try the Kayak trail near the fortress, it's just amazing. A micro-wave should be a good +, and a fan in each bedroom too. Thank you for the welcome basket.

a perfect short - relax only - holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Before we left home we had already received - by mail - a very detailed description of, for example, how to get to the apartment, and things to do in Lagos. We however spent our short stay at the same beds ( EURO 5 each) on the same beach at Pirates(a five minute-walk) and at the beds (EURO 5 each) at the same swimming pool (Duna, a 4 minute-walk). We also enjoyed the lunches at Duna. Two hundred meters to the east of Duna we ate several times at Gaivota Branca... grilled tuna very delicious!

As we entered the - clean - apartment, together with the manager, we found a welcome basket on the table; bread, fruit, eggs, wine, cheese and in the fridge beer, wine, cola and milk. That's a very nice gesture of the owners!!!

They also have a good taste in home decorating. It immediately felt as home. We slept very good at the master bedroom and we hope to stay there in the near future with our family.We definitely recommend this apartment!

Owner's Response: What a lovely review, thank you! We are delighted that you had such a wonderful time at Meia Praia beach which is indeed well known for its relaxing atmosphere. The beach stretches over 5 km and has really nice places to have lunch or diner. And as you experienced the beach is just 2 min walk from the apartment. We are looking very much forward to welcoming you back with you family soon again. With warmest regards!

Amazing place! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Words fail to describe this beautiful apartment. Spacious, fully equipped and also important very clean. Within walking distance of the impressive sandy beach of Meia Praia. I recommend this apartment which is definitely for travelers who appreciate comfort, beach and golf (several courses within 20 minutes drive with the course of Palmares_27 holes at only 5 minutes drive). Many thanks to the team, we felt so welcome and had top week! We will definitely be back soon again.

Meia Praia
Car: not necessary

A vibrant and sunny town, Lagos’s pretty cobbled streets bristle with cafes, restaurants, shops and bars.

The lively marina is the starting point for any number of boat trips, from dolphin watching to deep sea fishing, wake boarding to sailing.

The beautiful coastline offers more than a half-dozen beautiful beaches. Quiet sandy coves are sandwiched between dramatic cliffs. The sandy 2.5-mile stretch of Meia Praia caters to every water sport imaginable.

There is a rich and beautiful history within Lagos’ 14th century walls, from its fortress to picturesque churches like the medieval São João Hermitage and the 17th-century São Sebastião.

Set in 550 acres of rolling countryside, Palmares Golf Course is one of the Algarve's most scenic golf courses, commanding magnificent views of the Lagos bay and the distant Monchique hills. The course offers an outstanding combination of links and parkland holes and during springtime the fairways are lined with flowering shrubs, acacias and the blossoming Almond trees.
