The Algarve region
The Algarve is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday with a unique culture, stunning landscape, charming people and fabulous local cuisine. There are over 100 miles of sandy beaches and 3,000 hours of sunshine a year.
The Western Algarve is less developed than some other areas and near the apartment are some fantastic sandy beaches and areas to walk or cycle. The historic town of Lagos has retained it's charm, and the ambience of the old town along with its its beautiful harbour, marina, castle, churches and excellent shopping facilities reflect why it is frequently referred to as the "jewel in the crown" of the Algarve. There are also plenty of things to do - sightseeing, swimming, wind surfing, horse riding, golf, tennis, fishing, water parks, go karting, football, and even dolphin watching!
The climate in the Algarve is very favourable with temperatures frequently well into the 30's (degrees) in the main summer months with cooler temperatures throughout the rest of the year. Being near the coast, there is often a pleasant breeze to keep you cool but you can usually be guaranteed plenty of sunshine lying by the pool or on the beach.
The Algarve is famous for its golf courses and there are over 30 courses in the region to choose from.
Leading travel website Trip Advisor has named Lagos in the western Algarve as one of 15 rising destinations in the world based on feedback from customers. It also received a 2011 Traveller’s Choice award for its stunning beaches - Meia Preia beach was quoted as “a beach for all seasons” and the number one attraction to the town.
Lagos marina holds a blue five star award, the highest accolade from the International Marine Certification Institute (IMCI) for a high standard of water quality and attention to the environment.
Lagos was rated highly as a destination for a variety of qualities, including its history, choice of beaches, nightlife, dining and reliable transport system. It is steeped in history and the old town with its quaint narrow cobbled streets, city walls and outdoor restaurants create a lovely ambience. Some of the best sandy beaches in the Algarve are nearby and offers a perfect location for all types of water-sports.
There are plenty of things for the children to do - visit Lagos Zoo, the Zoomarine aquarium, nearby water parks and the Sven-Goran Eriksson Football Academy at Lagos’ new 5-star Cascade Development.
For golf enthusiasts the Boa Vista Golf resort is little more than a 5-minute drive from the apartment, whereas the spectacular Onyria Palmares course, which now has 27-holes, is a 10-minute drive. Towards the end of 2011, leading golf magazine, Golf World, published its ‘top 100 in Europe’ list - and Onyria Palmares is ranked 26 in Continental Europe. Onyria Palmares was the third highest new entrant to the list and was ranked third best golf course in the whole of Portugal.
There are numerous other high-quality golf courses within a 30-minute drive, including Le Méridien Penina Golf & Resort with the Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course which is about 15-minutes away.
There are many other activities available locally including tennis, walking, swimming, bicycle hire, boat trips, windsurfing, kite surfing and jet skiing. The new Algarve International motor racing circuit is 15 mins away. There are several beach bars on nearby Meia Praia beach, restaurants and bars at Lagos Marina and weekly markets in Loule & Portimao.
If you like diving, there is an excellent place to learn to dive with a PADI certificate diving school. Lagos is on the edge of the Costa Vicentina nature reserve and there are some excellent horse riding stables nearby.
Lagos has its own cinema with the latest films shown in English or why not visit the Governor's Castle and Fortress. At night the shops are open late with street entertainers, market stalls and outdoor restaurants.
