Luxury Algarve Apartment
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
We chose our apartment at Porto Mos for its stunning location and tranquil feeling. It's the kind of holiday where you can do as much or as little as you please and suits all ages.
The apartment is modern yet homely and has all you need for a comfortable stay.
Uniquely, this apartment has it's own secure gated access to the pool area which is shared with just eleven other apartments (others in this development share with 15), allowing you to enjoy the freedom of a villa style holiday. It is also ideal for holidaying with young children as they can play in or by the pool whilst you are relaxing on the terrace, just an arms length away should they need you.
There are excellent bars and restaurants a five minute walk away on Porto Mos beach, or a 30 minute walk/5 minute drive takes you into Lagos where you will be spoilt for choice.

|Further details indoors|
Our apartment has been described by previous guests as a 'home from home.' You'll find chunky, rustic furniture and big comfy sofas along with luxury touches like the jacuzzi bath and the sound system.
Bedroom 1 is a large room with a double bed, an abundance of wardrobe space, a terrace overlooking the pool and an en suite bathroom with jacuzzi bath. This room is ideal if you're travelling with a baby who you want to sleep in with you as there is plenty of room for a travel cot.
Bedroom 2 has two single beds, a terrace and built-in wardrobes.
The second bathroom has a shower cubicle.
The kitchen has an induction hob, oven, toaster, kettle, microwave, large fridge/freezer and a terrace.
The lounge is spacious with a 3 seater (sofa bed) sofa and a 2 seater. There is a flat screen TV, DVD/CD player and the controls are here for the integrated sound system. The patio doors lead out onto the terrace and private garden area which overlooks the pool and has its own gated access to the pool and shared gardens. This is a unique feature of this apartment, which means no packing up your towel etc for a swim - your terrace and sunlounger are just a few feet away! It is however, very secure and the gate can be locked to prevent little ones accessing the pool area alone.
|Further details outdoors|
Secure underground car parking, electric shutters and video entry for complete security and peace of mind. As this is a ground floor apartment with the main terraces overlooking the pool, it is ideal for young families as the children can play in the pool whilst you relax on your own private terrace. The terraces are raised from ground level to maintain privacy but you are within arms reach of your children should you need to attend to them.
The apartment is fully air-conditioned and has an integrated sound system.
Beautiful, tranquil garden areas with heated swimming pool and separate Jacuzzi. Unlike the other apartment blocks on this complex, this apartment shares the pool with just 11 other apartments. Outdoor shower, patio set, sunloungers. Pool area and gardens are lit at night.
Changeover days, length of stay and check-in and out times are flexible - just contact us with your requirements.
We ask for a 25% deposit to secure your booking and the balance is then due 8 weeks before your arrival, along with a £150 security deposit.
The security deposit will be returned to you once we have a) received back our keys from you and b) had notification from our management company that there is no damage to the apartment. Please allow 7 working days for your deposit to be returned.
The Algarve region
The Western Algarve is best known for its golden, sandy beaches and its year round temperate climate. It has also become an increasingly popular golfing destination, now boasting some of the best courses in Europe.
Porto de Mos is a stunning development, just a couple of years old where you will find a mix of stylish, luxury apartments like ours, nestled alongside multi-million pound villas. The development is idyllically located on the cliff-top of Porto de Mos, yet within a few minutes walk of the beautiful beach of Porto Mos and a couple of very good restaurants and bars.
The stunning, golden, sandy beach of Praia de Porto de Mos is just a five minute walk from the apartment. There are two good restaurants here where you can eat inside or outside; they serve drinks, snacks or full meals.
A 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk, takes you into the historic town of Lagos with its cobbled streets and luxury marina. Lagos itself has an interesting history and has museums where you can explore this, or take a walk along the old city walls and 'fort.'
There is an abundance of good restaurants and dining al fresco in the cobbled streets, or at one of the Marina restaurants, is a perfect place to watch the world go by.
Lagos also has its own beach - Ponta da Piedade which shelters the bay and is admired by visitors for its caves, rocks and beautiful transparent waters.
Beaches further afield (10 mins) include Dona Ana and Meia Praia.
For golfers, there are the challenges of 6 courses between 5 and 20 minutes drive away:
Boavista - 18 holes par 71 (just 2km away with spa facilities).
Palmares - 18 holes par 71 (about 5km).
Penina - 18 holes par 73 (& 2 x 9 holes) (about 12km).
Pestana Alto Golf - 18 holes par 72 (about 15km).
Parque da Floresta - 18 holes par 72 (about 15km).
Morgado do Reguengo – 2 x 18 holes (about 20km).

Thanks for your review and we're so happy to hear you enjoyed our apartment and the local area.
Not having wi-fi is a personal choice for us, because when we go ourselves we prefer to "get away from it all" - sounds like that worked for you too!
We hope to welcome you back in future.

"Great appartment for family with small children"
Very nice and functional apartment. Great with the terrace on the ground floor and just by the pool. Walking distance to the nice beach.I missed wifi and the master bed was a bit hard.… More
We're pleased you enjoyed your stay at our apartment.
Sorry to hear you found the master bed a little hard - I guess this is down to personal preference - I think the sofa bed in the lounge has a softer mattress.
Not having wi-fi is a personal choice as when we go there ourselves we prefer to get away from every day life and not use our phones and computers. However, public wi-fi is available at the bar down on the beach if needed.

"Great apartment and location"
This is an impressive, comfortable and well equipped apartment which worked extremely well for us. The apartment is perfectly placed for using the pool with its own gated access from the front garden making it safe for young children. The beach and a couple of good local restaurants are within easy walking distance and the town of Lagos is a short drive away. I would recommend it.

"Clean, attractive and spacious apartment near to lovely beaches"
We really enjoyed our week in this apartment near Praia Porto Mos. The rooms were comfortable, bright, modern and there was plenty of space. We felt it was well equipped although we didn't really want to do that much cooking anyway! One nice feature is the electronic shutters which meant everyone slept really well in the morning - particularly our children who generally wake really early with bright sunlight. There is a nice balcony which overlooks the pool that is shared by 11 villas. The pool itself is nice but can be busy depending upon the amount of occupied villas. You can walk to the nearest beach but a car is useful to explore the many other lovely beaches and villages nearby. We would certainly recommend this villa, particularly to families with children.
Thank you for your kind review, we're pleased you enjoyed your stay. The pool area during peak season, if all other apartments are occupied, can obviously be busier than at other times of the year. However, on the plus side, our apartment shares the pool with just 11 others whereas the others on Porto Mos share with 14. We also provide four of our own sunloungers, exclusively for guests to use, so you never struggle to find your own space by the pool! And of course you have your own private terrace just at arms reach to the pool area! Hope to welcome you back in the future.
