"A taste of Lagos at its best"
We loved our stay in the Cottage in so many different ways.
Perhaps more than everything else it was the location. We were within a stone's throw (or rather an orange's throw - orange trees line the street outside) from the bustle of Lagos Old Town, entered through an arched gateway in the ancient city walls. Yet at the same time we lived on a residential street in an authentic neighbourhood, with local market, small shops, supermarket, pastelarias and bars all around. And of course the locals going about their business in an unhurried and relaxed manner, as it always seems to be in Portugal. In fact they often rather sit around their business, drinking another bica and having another pastéis de nata – the lifestyle we felt compelled to adopt. You know, when in Rome ...
Thanks to Helena, our friendly and ever helpful agent and a Lagos native, we also quickly discovered that the best seafood restaurant in town, Os Lambertos, happened to be a couple of streets away. After trying it once (Sunday special seafood risotto) we never bothered to look for another place to eat.
The cottage itself felt homely, comfortable and surprisingly spacious with open plan lounge-kitchen-diner and high ceilings all around. You could certainly see the high standard and professional touch in the modern and classy interiors, which were refurbished and designed by the architect owners.
Credit for our perfect little Algarve holiday should also go to the Lagos town itself, the surrounding beaches (Praia Dona Ana, the nearest to the Cottage, was voted as one of the best in the world!) and the hilltop towns. They manage to retain their authentic charm, at least outside high season, despite the ever increasing pressures of mass tourism.
We can't wait to go back.
