The Algarve region
The Western Algarve is as an area of great charm and beauty, an unspoilt haven with inviting beaches set against dramatic cliffs and rugged coastlines, interspersed with traditional fishing villages.
The region remains a haven for international holiday makers, offering a winning combination of a fantastic climate, abundance of cultural life, superb bars and restaurants and world-class golf courses.
Located on the tip of Europe with the vast ocean of the Atlantic as its southern and western border, this enviable position gives this region possibly the most unpolluted climate in the European continent. Surfing and Sailing are both popular activities along this coast line.
The closest beach to the villa is Meia Praia, a large expanse of golden sand stretching for miles. There are water sports to enjoy and some restaurants and bars too. To the other side of Lagos you will find small “town” beaches Praia da Batata, Praia da Dona Ana, Praia de Camilo and others. All these beaches are surrounded by high limestone cliffs.
The many beaches in Lagos are surrounded by a great network of paths that take you along the edges of the spectacular cliffs. Enjoy this unique opportunity to feast your eyes over some of the most dramatic vistas overlooking the Atlantic. Also within 10 min drive is Lagos Marina with all the water sports activities you could hope for plus some nice bars and restaurants. A further 5 minutes by foot takes you to the centre of Lagos.
Lagos: The historic seafaring town of Lagos lies at the heart of the Western Algarve, sheltered by the Ponta da Piedade and guarded by an ancient fort. From here, in the great age of discoveries, Portugal's famous explorers set sail. Although now a lively and bustling town with an award winning marina and many shops, bars and restaurants Lagos retains the gentle atmosphere that is characteristic of Portugal and its people, providing a delightful insight into Portuguese life.
Praia da Luz: A fishing community since the earliest human settlement of this area, Luz has gone on to become a highly popular summer destination. There is a great variety of family friendly restaurants and bars, supermarkets and all the amenities for a complete holiday. The beautiful sandy beach is perfect for sun bathing and water sports, and Luz beach sports the European blue flag indicating clean sand and clean water. To the east of town you find some spectacular cliffs and among them the prominent black rock Rocha Negra. Luz is just 8 minutes west of the historic town of Lagos.
Burgau: 6 km further west of Lagos Burgau has absorbed the advance of tourism yet still retains a strong character which remains relatively un-spoilt due to its location in a small cove bound by steep cliffs. The locals still set out to sea in brightly painted boats in pursuit of squid, lobster and sardines as they did a hundred years ago.Nestled on the edge of a national park, the steep streets lead to a horseshoe shaped bay where there is a beach bar, several cafés, bars and restaurants. Historic Lagos is just 10 minutes away by car.
Golf: There are several golf courses in the area including the Championship course Penina, the challenging and the picturesque Parque da Floresta and Boavista Golf and Leisure Resort. Right on the doorstep of Jardim da Meia Praia is one of the most prestigious in the Algarve, Palmares with its amazing sea views over Meia Praia. Opened in December 1975 with 18 holes, has been just recently renovated and rebuilt into 27 brand new holes.
Other Activities: Slide and Splash water park and Zoomarine are about half an hour's drive away and the local Lagos Zoo is great for the little ones. Horse riding, dolphin watching and grotto trips, Jeep safaris and water-based sports can also be arranged.

"Excellent property and excellent service"
This property was really great, and just as nice as it looked on the pictures! We really enjoyed the spectacular views from the terraces and bedrooms. A large garden surrounds the house and there are no close neighbours. The swimming pool was clean and inviting. There is no air condition in the house, but large fans in all rooms. However, due to the house construction and by using the shutters or shades during daytime, the indoor temperature was never a problem (despite outside temperatures up to 33-34 degrees centigrade). Within a 5-10 minutes drive you can reach both the beautiful city centre of Lagos, a nice supermarket, and the great beach "Meia Praja". Our stay was during the first half of July, and there were plenty of free spaces on the beach.
The renting process through Resort Rentals Algarve was a real pleasure. They always responded fast and precisely, and the local service is excellent. Any practical questions or problems are quickly solved; we had a problem with two window locks on arrival, and it was all fixed the day after. I would certainly use this company once more if we (hopefully) return to Algarve and the Lagos area. Regards from a very satisfied Norwegian family.
Many thanks for your review. I have shared it with the team as we are always thrilled with a 5 star rating - it never gets boring! You were great guests and would be very welcome back anytime.
