The Algarve region

Lagos Zoo is a fun place to take the children and watch them feed the animals and is only a short drive away. The waterparks and Slide and Splash are approximately a 30 minute drive. You can pre book your tickets in the town. The surrounding Coast with golden cliffs that plunge into the clear calm waters is an indescribable beauty. There are many beautiful beaches nearby all within a 30 minute drive. Meia Praia is our local beach and will take you approximately 5/10 minutes depending on how quickly you walk. The beach stretches for miles with many local bars and restaurants. Various watersports are available plus Paragliding for the more daring. Our local supermarket is a short walk away where you will find everything that you need. Many boat trips are organised from the Marina, you can swim with the Dolpins, go fishing or explore the local caves. All can be arranged from the Marina or the Town. For the girls that like to shop til they drop why not try out the new shopping centre in Portimao where you will find many great shops including a few favourites at much cheaper prices.


Lagos is steeped in history and much of this is evident around the town. There are lots of different eating places whether you want traditional or the local curry house you will find it in Lagos. The Fish is fresh and delicious and with many varieties you must try them all. Sardines and fresh bread is a local favourite along with the local wine. Lots of local entertainment both in the town and the Marina.

Why not take part in the Sardine Festival in Portimao. How many Sardines can you eat? Great fun to watch, or just wander around. It is a huge open air festival with live bands, music and many stalls selling food, crafts and more. This is normally in July however the dates do change.

Plenty of Banks near by if you need to change money you will need to take your passport with you.

"Lovely holiday, excellent apartment!"

This lovely apartment was exactly what we had hoped for. Very modern, clean, and had everything we could possibly need and more! Kim was great, we chatted a couple of times with her on the phone as we made our arrangements, she was helpful and friendly and we felt confident dealing with her. Sandra met us as we arrived, she too was so friendly and helpful and she came in three times during our stay to give us new linen and towels. Really nice to come home to that after a day on the beach. The pool was lovely, never got very busy, and was so clean and quiet. The beach is just down the road - and the lovely town of Lagos just a walk away. The whole experience was brilliant! We would love to revisit that area, and in particular that apartment. Very satisfied customers! Our deposit was returned quickly too.

"Best holiday apartment....ever."

We've stayed in this apartment now for three straight years. It has everything you could ask for, and more. We have three kids - 13, 11 and 2 - and there was plenty of space for us all. A real home from home, with everything you need. Having dealt with Kim over the past three years, it is a complete pleasure to provide this feedback - this apartment really does what it says on the tin. For location it's a couple of minutes from the Marina and 10 minutes to the beach. Each year it has been a straight no-brainer to re-book..we could not recommend it any more highly ... book it and you won't be disappointed!!

"Perfect apartment and location for young children and adults alike"

We stayed here for 3 weeks over the end of May and June, and had a different set of grandchildren and their parents for each week. Childrens ages ranged from 6 to 1! The apartment was everything it promised to be. It was spotlessly clean - in fact appeared to be brand new and never inhabited, although this was not the case. Sandra was an excellent person to greet us and she has very high standards of cleaning such apartments. The rooms were spacious and cool, as was the balcony, and every possible amenity was provided - from DVD's for all ages, coffee making machine, beach towels etc. The cot and high chair were good quality, in fact the apartment, pool etc was extremely child friendly and safe. Location to nearby beach, town, shops and restaurants was brilliant and prices were reasonable in the town. Sandra and Kim were most accommodating regarding changing of bed linen towels etc as our dates were not exactly standard, and the apartment was cleaned at the end of each week.

"Best Holiday ever.We would not change anything."

The apartment was fantastic and had everything we needed for a very comfortable hassle free stay. The pool area was great and very close and child friendly. We were also very close to cafes, restaurants, bars and the supermarket.

The food at the restaurants was fantastic and very reasonably priced. In fact, we were pleasantly surprised by how inexpensive this holiday was. 8 to 10 Euros for lunch per person and 1.50 to 6 euros for a bottle of wine in the supermarket. If we didn't feel like going out the apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable night in with a home cooked meal. With U.K. T.V , a DVD player and free wifi.

The area was safe for young children and the two 18 year old teenage girls with us were able to go out to clubs and bars with no problems. A very safe and crime free area.

We would certainly come back again and have recommended the apartment and Marina area to friends and family.

I would not change anything. Our deposit was back in our account within a few days of our return and both Kim the apartment owner and her local representative Sandra could not have been nicer or more helpful.

Thank you so much for a lovely time.

Frank and Fiona Starkey and family.
