About this location
The Algarve region
Lagos - The town was founded by the Phoenicians. The Moors made it an important trading town before the re-conquest by Christian armies in 1241. It was used by Henry the Navigator as a base for African trade and remnants of the first slave market in Europe can be found alongside the old custom house. A visit should be made to the Igreja de Santo António and the museum next door being one of the few buildings which survived the 1755 earthquake. Lagos has a daily fresh fish market, artisan shops with pottery and clothing bargains and many small craft shops. The historic old town is steeped in over a thousand years tradition. Jugglers, craft markets and artists are common in the cobbled streets. The pedestrianisation of the town centre has been a major success and the town is very lively in the evenings. With its winding streets, it retains an old world Portuguese charm and relaxing atmosphere. It's easy to sit in the marina and watch the world go by, but why not take a stroll along the beautiful waterfront or visit the nearby sandy beaches. The choice of cafes, restaurants and shopping is excellent. At night, Lagos comes alive with open air stalls and street performers.
The Marina is within a short walking distance of Lagos town, railway station & beach. There are numerous cosmopolitan cafes, bars and restaurants in the Marina, together with cash machines and telephones. It is a gentle 10 minute scenic stroll across the river and footbridge to the bustling town of Lagos.

- Wide selection of Restaurants
- Bars and Bistros
- Shops & Boutiques
- Marina Health Club
- Boat trips

"A Pleasant Stay"
Our first time in Portugal was made a very
pleasant experience because the apartment offered comfort, space and a serene atmosphere. Its accessibility to shops of different sorts, the scenic view of the marina and its proximity to the center of Lagos were good values for money.
Besides, our kids were very happy, they had lots of fun. The train station was unbelievably close that a trip to Faro and the coastal towns was irresistible. It's worth trying.
Apart from the poor signal from the wifi(but prepaid internet is very cheap in Portugal), everything about the accommodation is delightful. I give it 90% rating.

"Home from home with the sun!"
This is a lovely apartment, in a secure and well maintained complex, within easy reach of Lagos Town, and right on top of the fabulous Marina. The apartment itself is well equipped and has the bonus of a full Sky TV package. The other added bonus is the owner's manager in Lagos, Corinne, who is always there, if you need her, and is such a welcoming person, on your arrival. We have been going to Lagos for many years, staying in apartments, and quality hotels, but for comfort and facilities you will have everything you need here. The only downside is that, although there is a private pool on the complex, we found that there is definitely an under provision of sun loungers, which can be a problem, as the apartment only benefits from the sun until just after lunchtime. If you are not down at the pool by 9am, at this time of year, you may not get a sun lounger, and this resulted in several tenants putting towels on at 8.30, even though they didn't use them until late morning, or even later. I do believe that there is scope for many more loungers within the complex. Overall though, don't be put off by this, for the sake of missing out on a lovely apartment, great location, and fabulous town.
Overall a very complimentary review highlighting the many positive aspects of the apartment. However it is important to clarify that there are two collapsable sunloungers on the main balcony which are easily taken via the lift for use by the pools. Regarding the direct sunlight on the balcony. Like most of the apartments in the Marina, the sun gradually subsides during the afternoon as it pans slowly across the balcony. In many cases this is actually considered a major benefit as it provides welcome relief from the direct sunlight which is at its most intense during the afternoon.

"Fantastic rental property for families"
This as a beautiful, extremely well equipped apartment in a fabulous location. Lagos itself is beautiful with fabulous beach, lovely new marina and quaint old town. The property is, in our view, ideally situated on the marina with beach and old town within easy reach. The facilities in the apartment and its complex are second to none and ideal for families. You don't even need a hire car!
Service from the apartment owner was excellent. We plan to return and would recommend without hesitation
