The Algarve region
Think of the Algarve and you think of sunshine breaks and relaxing holidays. You imagine golden beaches on the coast of calm sea waters, sun-kissed tourists relaxing and sampling the delights that this wonderful region of Portugal has to offer.
Everywhere you go, you are surrounded by bright colours, from the golden sands, to the crystal clear waters, the clear blue skies, the vivid green grass, and the white-washed walls of the buildings in the Algarve's old towns.
There is no one best way to explore this region of Portugal. The seemingly endless coastline includes some of the world's most beutiful beaches, but by venturing just a few miles inland, you can lose yourself in the heritage and history of the Algarve.
Fancy a more action-packed holiday? The Algarve caters for all holiday makers... with every watersport available for all tourists. The Algarve is also home to some of the world's most famous golf courses, where players of all ability are welcome. You can also try your hand at a nice relaxing game of bowling, or tennis, with the Algarve's fantastic views and sights providing the perfect backdrop.
Lagos is a major port and historically one of the region's most interesting cities. It has style, with its sleek boats, designer boutiques and paved promenades. Essentially now an important tourist town there are still many architectural signs of its ancient past. The walls of the town in the most part remain after sections were restored. Attached to the famous 17th Century "gold" church of Santo António there is a small museum of regional items, some of which are quite odd!
Fabulous beaches and coves, an historic town with great shopping in its quiet cobbled back streets combine to make the town one of the most sought after resorts on the coast. Excellent restaurants serving international cuisine, shopping, nightlife or quiet life, the choice is yours! White sandy beaches, crystal clear seas, friendly relaxed atmosphere, fresh fish in abundance and over 300 days of sunshine a year!
The location of the apartment is superb, just a few minutes walk to historic town of Lagos, its modern marina and the beautiful beach of Meia Praia. Other nearby beaches include Dona Ana and Praia da Luz. Several world class golf courses are a short drive away, including Palmares, Boavista and the challenging Parque da Floresta course.
The marina is just 5 minutes walk, with Lagos town a further 10 minutes. The town boasts numerous boutique shops, cafes and bars within its cobbled pedestrianised area.
There is plenty of local entertainment for the kids with ‘Slide and Splash’ activity park and 'Zoo Marine' approx 30 minutes drive.
