The Algarve region
Unforgettable Algarve! Whatever type of holiday you prefer, whether it's relaxing on the beach, birdwatching, golfing, watersports or walking, the Algarve has it all. With its mild winter climate and cooling breezes in the hot summer months it is the perfect year-round resort. White sandy beaches, crystal clear seas, friendly, relaxed atmosphere, fresh fish in abundance and over 300 days of sunshine a year.
DON'T READ ABOUT IT, TRY IT FOR YOURSELF!!
The charming, historic town of Lagos has something to offer everyone, with its picturesque, cobbled streets, numerous restaurants, bars and shops, cosmopolitan Marina, GOLF and many watersports. From the Marina you can take an Atlantic trip to see dolphins in their natural habitat, visit the grottos, go sea fishing or simply watch the world and expensive yachts go by. Lagos has an abundance of restaurants serving delicious cuisine ranging from traditional Portuguese to more exotic Eastern dishes. In the summer months street entertainers often perform in the town square and the firework displays are fantastic. A visit to the old slave market (1st in Europe) and the Church of Santo Antonio(Golden Church) are a must! Lagos zoo is approx 15 mins drive away.
Within 35/40 mins drive there are two water parks and Zoo Marine, the ocean theme park (swimming with dolphins can be arranged.) Also Cape St. Vincent , the furthest point west in Europe.
Trains connect from Lagos with the high speed train to Lisbon for cultural breaks and the views from the Monchique mountains back to Lagos are not to be missed.
New attraction to the area is the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve Racetrack opened in Oct 08 with the World Superbikes Championships, already approved by F.I.A. for Formula 1 status and A1 G.P. stages a round in April 09. Also a Karting track for young and old boy racers! Just 10 minutes drive from the apartment. Visit their website www.autodromodoalgarve.com for events information

"Quiet location but within walking distance of all amenities"
It was a one bedroom apartment but very large. The balcony ran the width of the apartment and we almost lived there. It was in the sun if we wished to sun bathe and in the shade if we wished to eat.
The pool was small but private and very rarely busy.
The apartment was spotlessly clean and the block safe and secure and within walking distance of the beach, the port and the centre of the town.
There was a shop two minutes from the apartment which provided all the basics and fresh rolls and croissants for breakfast.
Underground parking for the car.
A contact number if any queries or problems arose - which didn't

"Perfect Holiday Home!"
Friends of ours go to Lagos in Portugal every year so this year we decided to join them. My friends partner seached on the internet for an apartment nearby and, as luck would have it, found an apartme… More

"Home from home"
This was the 2nd time we have stayed here and both times we felt completely at ease, the welcome from Doreen was friendly and informative. It was easy to find with the clear instructions given to us in the information pack. There was no safe at the time we were there but with all the security needed to enter the apartment block and the electric shutters on all the windows we felt very safe leaving valuables in the room, We thought we would have to eat out most evenings but the kitchen facilities were brilliant, there is a large supermarket about 15 mins walk away or the small one 5 mins away. There is also a fantastic little restaurant we found but dont be put off by its appearance outside, it had a heading of RESTAURANT in big blue neon and is just past the fish market next to the road crossing before you get to the town , it is a family run place and the food is possibly the best I have ever eaten in Portugal. Finally if I had any queries before I went I had Mary's number ( the owner ) and she was on hand to help at all times.

"Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location!"
We have stayed twice in Casa Louisa and thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment is spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable indeed with a huge terrace that gets the sun for most of the day. The pool area is just lovely and on several occasions we had the pool all to ourselves! The apartment is in a very peaceful location yet just a 10 minute relaxed stroll will take you to the Marina and a further 5 minutes into Lagos town. I believe you can also cut across the field next to the apartment for a short walk to beautiful Meia Praia beach, although we didn't try this as we had a car. Mary and Doreen were extremely helpful with any questions we had and they even looked after a couple of beach chairs we bought on our first visit thereby saving us at least 50 Euros! I have recommended Casa Louisa to family and friends and would recommend it to anyone - couples and families. The next time we visit Lagos we will definitely be staying at Casa Louisa!
