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.

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.

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.

"Lovely comfortable apartment in an excellent location for all ages"
The apartment is well decorated, well equipped, really spacious, lives up to the photos - you won't be disappointed. It is in a small complex with indoor and outdoor pool and gym, and with everything else you could want a short walk away. The town (5 mins walk) has lots of shops and restaurants (and bars for our older children (18-19)).
The supermarket next door was so convenient - they also did hot food take out, so if we didn't feel like cooking we could go and get a couple of cooked chickens and some salad. The beach was also within walking distance, but as it was very hot when we were there we tended to stick to the pool.
Wifi access was good - an essential for the teenagers.
Altogether, we had a really good holiday, and the comfort and spaciousness of the apartment, and easy access to everything else made it harmonious and relaxing for all.

"Fantastic apartment in quiet but central location."
The apartment is superb - it made our holiday. Beautifully presented and tastefully decorated with everything we needed. It was huge so even with an extended family of 7 we had plenty of room and it never felt crowded. Access to the apartment is secure.
We made use of all the facilities, outdoor and indoor pools and the gym. We also ate at the on site Cafe where the choice of home cooked food is extensive, tasty and reasonably priced. There is also a great supermarket almost next door.
When we wanted to venture further afield the town or marina are only a few minutes walk away with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. The lovely beach is well worth the 15 minute walk.
From time of booking until our arrival, Aileen kept in touch and answered any queries we had very promptly. We were met on arrival by Rui as arranged and shown around the apartment.
Should we return to Lagos, we'd love to stay here again and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment.

"An oasis at the days end."
Palmeiras is a well designed and managed urbanisation. Our apartment was situated on the top floor, giving exceptional views of Lagos along with the very essential cooling afternoon breezes. All rooms were spacious and with three outside decks, couples could enjoy absolute privacy. Any small problems that arose were quickly delt with by our host's manager who worked nearby. The apartment was central to everything, bus station, Saturday's market, the supermarket and numerous cafes, all a couple of minutes walk away. We loved our six months in Lagos and never tired of this apartment.

"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

"Good apartment, spacious and great location"
Good modern apartment. Spacious and good balconies with open views out. Great location for town and supermarket right next door. Rui and Aileen both great at dealing with the booking and arrivals process. Parking and lift made access easy.
