About this location
The Algarve region
Lagos offers a balance of the charm and history of the Portuguese culture to please the desires of the most discerning tourist. The warmth of Lagos and her people make it difficult to resist falling in love with this special place. Lagos is a fantastic, historical, vibrant town in western Algarve dating back 2000 BC. The Old town area is circled by the city walls, cobbled streets, museums, markets and restaurants to suit all tastes with lots of entertainment to suit all ages. In the middle of town, is Praça de Gil Eanes square, this is often the setting for evening entertainment throughout the year - a comical unicyclist, live music or a medieval fair are just some of the events to enjoy. If Portugal are playing football, or there is a major competition on, the cafes will have the big screens up in the square and everyone joins in the excitement (very good naturedly as well). The beautiful promenade leads to the 450+ berth Euromarine Anchor award Marina Lagos has stunning views, from the Ponte da Piedade (in front of the lighthouse) you get a fantastic view of the sweeping sands of Lagos bay with the Monchique mountains as a backdrop, and you can see all the way to Sagres to the west and Albuferia to the east.
Lagos is a town that has not been over commercialised by its tourism, there is so much to see and do you will be completely spoiled for choice. The climate is mild and sunny all year round.
Lagos has no shortage of high quality beaches. Sandy beaches stretch as far as the eye can see, framed by golden cliffs, Meia Praia beach is one of the longest stretching beaches in the Algarve, situated some 10 mins. walk from our apt.; the ocean, in every shade of blue and mostly calm, invites you for long swims and to indulge in water sports of all kinds.
There are also the mountains, where people live in harmony with nature and maintain traditions that they love to share. Lagos preserves traces from the time of the Discoveries. More cosmopolitan towns like Portimão and Albufeira which are 30 mins. drive away are bustling towns by night and day. .
To relax, you can have various treatments in the spas and thalassotherapy centres and in the Monchique Thermal Baths.
You can use footpaths and cycle trails to get to know the region, such as the Algarve Way inland or the Vicentine Route along one of the best preserved coastal stretches. Boat rides are another ecological way to observe the flora and fauna.
At the table, you will be delighted with the fresh fish and seafood, either grilled or in a casserole. These are divine flavours which you can enjoy on a simple beach terrace or in the most refined Michelin-starred restaurants, where chefs turn out new versions of traditional cuisine. They are further experiences not to be missed on a visit to Lagos.
Repeatedly considered to be the best golfing destination in the world by magazines devoted to the sport and by international associations of specialist tour operators, the Algarve lives up to this distinction by maintaining an unrelenting quality.
With an ideal climate that lets you playgolf throughout the year and a wide variety of almost four dozen courses, there are over 30 golf courses in this region: Courses in the Lagos area include:
PALMARES GOLF- 2km east of Lagos - 18 Holes - par 71. This course has views of the bay & historical town as well as Monchique mountains to the north, using its natural resources to maximum advantage
BOAVISTA GOLF - 18 Holes - par 71. This impressive championship course offers a number of tee options, challenging for all levels of golfers with the ocean visible from most of the holes. Water comes into play on 5 holes. The driving range high on the hillside can be seen from our apt. balcony.
PENINA GOLF - 18 Holes - par 73. This championship course was the first built in the Algarve in 1966 and has hosted the Portuguese Open many times.
PARQUE DA FLORESTA - This westernmost course in the Algarve features a challenging layout amid the rolling hills of the Costa Vincentina Nature Reserve.
ALTO GOLF CLUB - 18 Holes - par 72. Designed by Sir Henry Cotton with gentle rolling fairways and scenic views of the Monchique Mountains
VILAMOURA GOLF - This resort offers a total of 5 golf courses offering variety, value and challenge for all levels of golfers.
Amendoeira Golf Resort -new, 20 mins. drive; Faldo designed magnificent championship golf courses.
There are Tennis courts 2 mins away from the apartment, many, many water sports catered for; caving;, walking, fishing exploring the sand dunes, to mention just a few.
Shopping in Algarve is a must; experience the wide range of European brand names. Shopping centres are popping up everywhere in Algarve. They offer everything from a huge range of well know brand names to cinemas to bowling and they all generally have a big food hall so you can spend the entire day there.
So, on one of the very few dull Algarvean days take yourself off to the shopping centre. You will be delighted with all you can find in one compact area. Sports wear, the latest collections in ladies, gents and children's clothing, plenty of shoe shops to choose from. There is a fabulous new shopping centre 20 mins. drive away in Portimao , called Aqua; you can easily take the train or bus there for a very small fare, there is an open area on the top floor where you can dine in any of the many restaurants.

"The photos do not do this wonderful apartment justice"
The photos do not do this wonderful apartment justice. Have stayed in Lagos many times. This was definitely the best place. The quality of fittings and furniture are of a very high standard. It is spacious and has everything needed for a great holiday. Loved the large lounge area with the L shaped sofas and large TV. We adored large super king bed with tempura mattress, what a great nights sleep! Well equipped balconies for dining and sun bathing and get the sun all day. Good location, just 10 mins walk to town centre and close to supermarkets. The town of Lagos has numerous restaurants and all of a such a high standard you will be spoiled for choice. We loved No Patio, not far from the castle walls. Everything about this apartment was exemplary, its location, the space and the fittings and furnishings. A beautiful interior tropical garden greets you when you step inside the building. Will most definitely return to apt 5 at Nora. Thank you Jacqui and Terry. .

"Awesome Apartment in beautiful Lagos!"
This is a really beautiful apartment, modern, elegant, spacious and very well located within the gorgeous coastal town of Lagos. We have returned twice now as we enjoy the luxury of the apartment, the spa facilities and relaxed lifestyle Lagos enjoys with many cafes and lovely restaurants, which cater so well for families. The apartment is home from home with great kitchen facilities and outdoor living space, which is a must for me when self catering with young children. We enjoy family walks to the marina and along the prom, lazy coffees & ice creams and spend time on the fantastic beaches which keeps the children entertained for hours - the Saturday morning market is also well worth a visit, with great local food and flowers for sale. We look forward to returning again soon!
