This luxurious 2 bedroom/2 bathroom ground floor apartment is one of the finest in Lagos.
In a superb location just a 3 minute stroll to the old city and only 5 minutes to the centre of town, with its shops, bars, restaurants and cosmopolitan marina. Within 8/10 minutes walk (depending on how fast you walk)there is a gorgeous fine sandy beach by the fort and small marina. The beach is surrounded by cliffs and has a very convenient bar, or you can cross over to the famous Mia Praia beach in the little boat for 60 cent ( see photo) or if your feeling energetic you can walk to the larger marina and access the Mia Praia beach from there.

The large South facing Terrace which overlooks the pool has sun beds and large table and chairs with sun umbrella for the very hot days. There is also another small terrace leading off from the lounge where you can take in the view which stretches from the old town of Lagos all the way to the ocean.

The Algarve region
The beaches in the Western Algarve are among the most beautiful and least crowded in Europe. Choose from among the many sheltered sandy coves along the South coast, or venture a little further afield to one of the more dramatic West coast beaches, open to the full force of the Atlantic swell.
With well over 100 restaurants in Lagos and the surrounding area, plus a myriad of cafés, there are options to tempt even the most the discerning palate. The cuisine is mostly Portuguese, but there are also some English, French, Italian, Indian and Chinese restaurants, and one Middle Eastern restaurant.
For golf enthusiasts we have a beautiful 18 hole golf course Boavist only 5 minutes away. Slightly further afoot are a range of golf courses,the famous Pennina is 10/15 minutes away, Quinta do Lago and Vale da Lobo (Golden Triangle) courses are within a 45 minute drive.
- and for the Motorbike and car enthusiast we have the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve which is a brand new race circuit located only 15 minutes drive from Lagos. The circuit hosts Formula 1 testing, Moto-GP, A1-GP, Le- Mans and much more.
Entertainment and nightlife in the Western Algarve fits all tastes and preferences: there is a plethora of café terraces for calm enjoyment of the evening or dynamic discos to break the night with colour. Picturesque marinas and attractive bars and casinos offer all types of entertainment and enjoyment.

"Such a comfortable and very well placed appartment, beautiful and cosy"
We are french and stayed 2 weeks at the apartement. First we wanted to say that jenny, the owner, as made everything to simplify our stay in Lagos!This very nice and new apartment is very close to the beach (10min), the center of the town(5min), and to the supermarket (down the street)! We were very pleased to see how spacious the apartment is and everything was done to make us have nice holidays! The sun shines on the terrace on the evening so you can eat outside; all the residence was very quiet. We wanted to recommand this place because it's the best situation to discover Lagos!There's nothing else to say!

"Perfect family accomodation and location"
From the moment we started booking this holiday I had a great feeling as the owners, Jenny and Peter, was so attentive and helpful with facilitating our journey and travel arrangements. We're a family of five (two adults and three children under ten) and the appartment was perfect. Spacious, tasetfully decorated and spotless it was a home from home. The children loved it and can't wait to go back. We used the free pool a lot and it was very east to get to the old town, beaches and local buses. As news spreads this is going to be a very difficult appartment to get hold of in the future as you just can't fault it in any way. Jenny and Peter were fantastic to deal with. Lovely people. Thanks for a great holiday and we'll be back!

This is a fantastic property. It is very spacious; centrally located and comes with everything you could possibly need.
We travelled with two young children and found that it was much larger than the photos suggested. It also had a wonderful balcony that overlooks the spacious pool area (which also has a little shallow pool for small people). Furthermore, there is a large green area with skate park, playground and cafe just across the road.
It is situated in a great place - just outside the old city walls and a 5 minute stroll to the centre of town. The best beaches in Lagos are a 10 - 15 minute walk away.
Finally, and most importantly, the apartment is beautifully designed and furnished to an exceptionally high standard. It is clear that the owners of this property are thoughtful and have carefully considered every single detail (e.g. straw mats, buckets and spades, beach towels, umbrellas etc).

"One of our most enjoyable holidays with loads to do for all the family."
My wife and I had been hearing from friends for some years now how beautiful Lagos is, so we decided to make the trip last August. Our teenage son came with us. Usually when travelling with high expectations, one can be disappointed. Not in this case. On arrival at Faro airport, we took the coach to Lagos (1 hour). There is excellent value in car hire also and there is a direct rail link from Faro.
When we arrived at the apartment, we were delighted to receive a welcome pack which included bread, tea, coffee, cheese , etc, even a bottle of local wine. We were taken by the cleanlieness and generosity of space throughout, espesially in the two bedrooms and living area. However we were unaminous in our praise for the terrace which faces south. This area, just outside the kitchen, is welcoming throughout the day and late evening when one could relax with a cool beer or glass of wine before retiring to bed. From another terrace, you can take in the view which stretches from the old town of Lagos all the way to the ocean.
Eating out is very reasonably priced (especially in the old town). The layout of the town is such that almost all restaurants are within comfortable walking distance. Several outdoor activities are provided such as boat trips, water sports, etc. There is good value here also. Our son got involved in many of them and really enjoyed the surfing.
All in all it was one of our best holidays and one we would have no hesitation to recommend.
