Quinta das Palmeiras
Penthouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Fully air-conditioned, this brand new spacious penthouse apartment(165 sq metres) is located in the exclusive Quinta das Palmeiras complex in historic Lagos. Three balconies (80 sq metres) have views to the Marina from the front. The third balcony, which spans the full width of the apartment overlooks the old town and has access from the kitchen, the dining room and the master bedroom. There is an electric awning over the outdoor dining area for shade while eating or relaxing.
This extensive apartment has generous living and dining space with seating in the dining room for 8 people and in the kitchen for 6 people. Al fresco dining is also catered for with a table and chairs on the terrace and there is a BBQ on the kitchen terrace. An electric awning covers the outdoor dining area.
Our first visit to Lagos was on a family holiday, with an age profile stretching from five month to fifty plus ! What brings us back year after year is that there is something for everyone in Lagos !
Location is everything when it comes to holidays and the location of the apartment means everything is on your doorstep, all within 5 to 15 minutes walk.
A car is not really necessary for a stay here - the local Onda bus service, with a stop outside Quinta das Palmeiras, will take you to the beaches and villages nearby on a regular and frequent basis throughout your holiday. Take a look at www.aonda.pt for routes. Casa das Palmeiras is the stop next to the apartment.

The Algarve region
The Western Algarve is a superb holiday destination and is now popular all year round. The summer months are busier but even in winter there is a lively atmosphere to the town with most restaurants staying open for business. Of course, the 300 days of sunshine and mild winters have a lot to do with this - even in November or February it is possible to enjoy your lunch outdoors. Golf clubs abound as do unspoilt sandy beaches and there are many places of interest nearby. Continuing westwards to the most westerly point of Europe at Cape St Vincent is a must - as are trips to places such as Silves and Sagres with their castles and cathedrals. Inland there are many undiscovered gems such as the traditional village of Monchique.
Lagos is a picturesque town which retains it's authentic Portuguese charm. Steeped in history and protected by its 16th century walls, a huge amount of resources have been concentrated in the past couple of years in the restoration of the ancient ramparts found at the mouth of the river. While Lagos caters very well for it's visitors it is essentially a real town and one the locals will tell you is a very attractive place to live with a vibrant cultural dimension all year-round.
The Marina, with it's bars, restaurants and opportunites for 'people watching' is five minutes walk from the apartment. This is the perfect spot to dine or just relax with your favourite tipple while the kids have an icecream - there is no better vantage point to watch the glorious sunsets Lagos is famous for - being almost at the most westerly point of all of Europe. Here too you can embark on a cruise of the coast; try some deep-sea fishing or learn to sail while on holiday.
Equally close is the beach at Meia Praia - 5 kms long and also walking distance from the apartment (about fifteen minutes) but, if that's too much effort (you are on holiday !), take the Onda ! or the local open train which circles the town all day long.
The beach at Meia Praia never gets over-crowded but has everything the active beach-goer might want - para-gliding; banana boats; wind-surfing; watersking - or just a walk by the water's edge along the 5k of sandy spotless Blue Flag beach.
The town is a ten minute stroll from the apartment, along the riverside and has much to offer all ages - from the colourful Carousel in the Square to the endless dining options along the old streets and later, lively bars to keep the party animals among you happy.
Families can find fantastic days out which are both fun and educational, such as Zoomarine - a marine life theme park with dolphin and sea lion shows and even a unique chance to swim with the dolphins. Dolphin Safaris - a chance to watch whales and dolphins in their natural habitat, 3 departures daily (5min from apartment). Jeep safari, a chance to experience the wild rugged inland Algarve with guides that pride themselves on their unrivalled knowledge of the area with lunch included (chicken piri piri mountain style). Slide & Splash Europe's largest water park. Extreme sports...sky diving, kite surfing, surfing, wind surfing, downhill mountain biking, kayaking and many more.

"Penthouse Apartment, Lagos, Portugal"
This was our second stay in Lagos and just as lovely. A beautiful apartment,
well appointed and handy for town, marina and the beach. Fresco
Cafe on the ground floor is a 'must visit' especially the Thursday
Supper Night - excellent ! Rui met us on behalf of the owners and gave us 'the low down' in the apartment and was at the end of the phone if we needed anything. He also came to ensure we were collected by the taxi on our return to Faro airport. Excellent customer service. Thanks to Aileen and Gerald for allowing us to take advantage of this lovely property.

"Great location for young or old"
We had a really nice stay in this apartment. It was very clean, extremely spacious, and had a good location. We were a party of 7 , the oldest being almost 80 and the youngest had just turned 3. It was important that it had ease of access and Lagos could be navigated without going up and down too many hills, which this location provided. The facilities were used and enjoyed also. All in all we had a great holiday and this apartment comes recommended by us .

The apartment is everything it says it is. Smart, clean, tidy and bags of space.
Sun in the morning, afternoon and evening.
Glimpses of the Marina, a short walk away, and town with is varoius restaurants and market, is10 minutes flat walking away.
UK TV is a benefit for thoise who want to keep up with the news, and WIFI for €20 per week.
A supermarket at ground floor level, supplying all your needs and a couple of local bars/restaurants were can appreciate how "cheap" Potugal is in comparrison to the UK

"Really spacious, excellently equipped and comfortable apartment."
Lagos is a lovely town, especially good for the slower but more refined pace of holidaymaking. That's not to say that its full of doddery old people... certainly not, but if your the type of people who do not enjoy overtly seasidy places, rammed full of tat shops, selling everything predominately for the beach, combined with burger filled snack bars,... then stay to the east of Alvor.
Our stay in this apartment was for 5 weeks in spring 2012.
This apartment is superb to enjoy a good mixture of holiday activities, split between great local beaches, sightseeing around the Algarve or like us, for simply switching off from the world. The sunshine is available most of the day at the apartment because of it's 2 terraces, and in the evening a bbq on one of the terraces can round off the day perfectly. Comfy sunbeds are laid out on the terraces too. An outdoor pool and sunterrace looked great from the balcony, but being only spring we did'nt take advantage of it.
The old/interesting walled town part of Lagos is only a matter of a pleasant 10 minutes gentle stroll from the apartment, and it literally explodes into dozens of really nice but mostly inexpensive eating places, which spill out into the labrynth of traffic free streets, giving an opportunity to eat late, and in ancient charming old lantern lit street environments.
Being on the 5th floor, the apartment is quiet and not overlooked. The lift serves the garage, and is located right outside the entrance door...(there is no lift noise whatsoever.)
We stayed here for 5 weeks in Spring 2012, and were able to live as though we were at home, such is the extent of the facilities, equipped one assumes by people who also like to live here as if at they were at home too. It is certainly not a half hearted holiday flat-let, its a 'home from home', a spacious place to enjoy in its own right.. We really liked it, as did friends who popped over from the UK to spend a little time with us.
The new marina area is also only a 5 min stroll for keen landlubber sailors like us to walk to, and enjoy a drink or something to eat, and work out the prices of some of the gorgeous yachts moored there
I could get to and from the nearest supermarket shop ( Pingo), with freshly baked bread almost before my wife had boiled the kettle. and the Lidl store is also walkable in 5 mins.
Nothing adverse to report at all.
