Quinta de Sao Roque Townhome
Townhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Quinta de Sao Roque (QSR) is a small complex of 40 apartments and 14 townhouses built on the hillside overlooking Meia Praia beach. The views from here are spectacular - the ocean in one direction and the Monchique mountains in the other. The beach, which is a wide 5km stretch of white sand, can be reached via a new road below the property, and there you will find sunbeds, numerous water sports and a couple of nice beach bars/restaurants. QSR itself has lovely communal gardens, plus 2 swimming pools, one of which is for children. The house is comfortably and attractively furnished.
Lagos Marina is just a short 5 minute drive away, and is a great place to watch the world go by, in the many cafes, bars and restaurants. A further few minutes drive, or a relaxing walk, will take you to Lagos town, where you will find an even bigger selection of restaurants, shops and nightlife.
Palmares golf course is also right on the doorstep.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a king size (6ft) bed, with en suite shower room, and sliding doors out to a large balcony, offering magnificent views over the ocean and beach. The 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds, and a window overlooking the pool. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over, a bidet, sink and toilet. Both bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes with mirrored sliding doors, and each has a free-standing fan for keeping cool on hot evenings.
Downstairs, the living and dining areas seat 4 people comfortably, and both have sliding doors leading out to the patio. Lockable metal shutters are provided for safety and security. The fully-fitted kitchen is modern and well equipped, with granite work surfaces, and all the necessary crockery/utensils etc. needed for your holiday. There is also a half-bathroom downstairs comprising toilet and sink.
|Further details outdoors|
On the upstairs balcony, there are two chairs and a small table, ideal for enjoying a pre-dinner drink! Downstairs, the paved terrace has a table and chairs, with sun umbrella, for outside dining, and 2 sunloungers. There is also a brick-built BBQ for those who like to cook outside. At the side of the house, we have our own small grassy area, which is useful if you have small children.
There are 2 communal pools, one just for children, both with ample sunbeds and chairs. The communal gardens are attractive and well-maintained.
Parking is in a bay at the side of the house, or on the street in front.
There is a reception area on site, with friendly, English-speaking staff who can help with any problems, or advise on local attractions and amenities (golf, water parks etc). WiFi is available at Reception.
Beach towels are provided in addition to bath towels.
A large supermarket is within a 5 minute drive for all your needs.
The Algarve region
The Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal and is renowned for it s wonderful year-round climate, its excellent sandy beaches and its outstanding golf courses, therefore making it one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe.
If you ever tire of soaking up the sun on the beach, take a drive west along the coast, where you will encounter lots of dramatic scenery, small fishing villages and secluded beaches. You can visit the old fort at Sagres, and then go to Cape St. Vincent - the most southwestern point of Europe, also known as "the end of the world".
Lagos town has something for everyone. By day, stroll around the cobbled streets, relax in a cafe, or browse the local shops. By night, there are an abundance of bars and restaurants to suit all ages and budgets - some are very lively in high season but you can also find quieter ones on the back streets. Lagos Marina has its own selection of bars and restaurants, plus you can take daily fishing, sailing and dolphin-watching trips from here.
Meia Praia beach is great for families - a huge stretch of soft white sand, great for running around, flying a kite or just relaxing. Two beach bars serve wonderful snacks, lunch and dinner.
Palmares Golf Course is virtually next door to QSR, and is a combination of ocean side links and parkland holes. It has recently been redesigned with a further 9 holes added. Several other golf courses (Penina, Parque de Floresta, BoaVista) are within easy reach too.
Also within a short drive are 2 fantastic water parks (Slide & Splash is a family favourite), Lagos Zoo, or the newly completed Autodrome in Portimao.

"A peaceful and relaxing location, the wonderful Quintq de Sao Townhome exceeded our expectations."
We have just had the pleasure of staying at the Quinta de Sao Roque Townhome in the wonderfully relaxing beach location of Meia Praia on the outskirts of Lagos.
The house exceeded our expectations. It was exceptionally clean, and spacious, being decorated and furnished to a high standard,all within a great location. The property is very well equipped and the owner was very helpful with information about the area leading up to our holiday.
Waking up to the sun streaming in and the view across the hillside from the master bedroom was delightful. The patio and terrace were inviting for both meals or just relaxing.
The area is quiet and peaceful with an inviting and uncrowded beach.
Car hire is beneficial for ease of access to Lagos, the marina and the supermarket.
I would definitely recommend a holiday staying at the Quinta de Sao Roque Townhome.
We are very happy that you enjoyed staying in our house. It means a lot to us when our guests love it as much as we do!

"A PARADISE HOLIDAY HOME IN ITS TRUE MEANING"
Just returned with wife and two friends from a wonderful holiday in lagos made all the more special by this Quinta de sao roque townhouse. We have stayed over the years at many holiday apartments and villas , but very very few that we could say " we could permanently live in this " Its furnishing is quality , selective yet homely . The decor has been carefully chosen to give a beautiful light and airy feel and it must be the cleanest and well cared for
propery we have ever stayed in . The description in its advert can no way do it justice, suffice to say its everthing it says and much more. Every utensil and everthing else one could need to live self contained is there ; and coupled with its large sea view terrace , sunny side garden , and massive master bedroomed sea view balcony , one need never wander away from this peaceful and relaxing haven. The beautiful meia praia beach is a
pleasant 15 min walk downhill with its many quality beach bar/restaurants .A short drive
takes you into lagos where you can sample the charm and character of a lovely seaside resort.
The complex is superbly managed by Pedro and his friends who keep the whole complex
clean , beautifully kept gardens and swimming pools .
All in all , not a base but a home , and one which will make you wish it was yours.
Thank you so much for your very kind words. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our wonderful holiday home. We hopefully look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
