Quinta de Arbrotea
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Located in a peaceful location on the outskirts of the beautiful town of Lagos, yet within short walk or drive of superb sandy beaches, restaurants and bars, modern marina, fishing harbour, old town with shops and 4 prestigious golf courses. This brand new building is high quality throughout,with a large solar-heated swimming pool, air-conditioning, 32" flat screen TV/DVD, very large balcony facing south west. Lagos is famous for it's lively but traditional Portuguese character, food is great value and high quality. Fishing trips and local boat cruises can be taken from the town's waterfront. A modern marina with bars and shops is close. Supermarket a few minutes walk away.
This apartment is ideal for adult couples or smaller families with up to 2 children. The pool area is quite large and is usually peaceful.
The pool falls into sunshine from around 10am, whilst the sun balcony is in full sun from around midday until dusk. The balcony is well sheltered and tends to be several degrees warmer than poolside.
There is the option for more than 4 people as the large sofa in the lounge is also a sofa bed, but we feel 4 people maximum is recommended for maximum comfort.

The Algarve region
Lagos is a really lovely resort surrounded by numerous beautiful sandy beaches, and has a modern Marina, and an old town centre surrounded by town walls. The town centre itself consists of a sizeable area of cobbled streets free of traffic with literally hundreds of street cafes and bars, and numerous quality shops many selling high quality local crafts. In the evening the town is very vibrant with the street cafes always busy and a variety of small market stalls and some very good street entertainers. A river inlet runs along the town front where numerous boat trips/fishing/dolphin watching trips can be booked.Big game fishing (Marlin/shark) is available.
Some bars offer reduced price cocktails after 8pm. Seafood is the local speciality with local fresh fish.
Fruit can be purchased from roadside vendors (oranges/strawberries/cherries) very cheaply.
There is a water park (Slide & Splash) about 25 minutes away by car, a large open aquarium/theme park with live dolphin & sealion shows about 40 minutes away and the renowned Boa Vista golf course is only 5 minutes away along with another 3 high quality courses within 15 minutes. Most of the golf courses have spa facilities for non-golfing guests too.
There is also a small Zoo just north of Lagos.
There are large modern shopping malls at Portimao (15 minutes away) and also at Albuferia (30 minutes away) both with large food courts.
The Algarve has over 300 days of sunshine per year on average, but the evenings are not humid like the Mediterranean resorts, meaning sleeping is comfortable.
Lagos offers stunning beaches,lively old town crammed with restaurants,bars and classy gift shops.Fishing,boat trips ,dolphin watching trips can all be taken from the marina and riverside. Quality golf courses are closeby, A modern waterpark is 20 minutes away.
The town of Portimao is only 15 minutes away by car and also has some stunning large sandy beaches with a long boardwalk at the rear of the beach with many beach bars. Portimao also has a brand new shopping mall (mainly clothes and household goods) and a large retail outlet park (supermarkets, electricals etc..)
Inland from the coast north of Lagos the terrain rises toward the area of Monchique with its natural spas and green countryside.
There is also a brand new Formula 1 racing track 15 minutes north in the foothills which also has a great go-kart circuit.
The climate is good with a lot of sunshine March through to October and even in the other month's warm sunny days are usual. In spring and autumn the whole countryside turns green again and is covered with wild flowers.

"A very nice and comfortable 2 bedroom apartment."
Extremely spacious with a high standard of modern equipment/facilities. I would have no problem recommending it too others.
We particularly liked the balcony which runs the whole length. Also, layout is good with bedrooms at opposite ends, and the kitchen and living room in between. Very useful when you have teenage boys arriving back late at night...
