Casa Do Nascer Sol
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Casa Do Nascer Sol is a beautiful 3 storey town house right opposite Meia Praia beach (200 metres) and is ideally located only 1.5km from Palmares golf course and 1.5km from the charming town of Lagos. If you want some space this is the house for you - for example the two main bedrooms are each 4.6mt x 4.3mt plus fitted wardrobes and the twin bedroom is 3.1mt x 3.6mt.plus fitted wardrobe. The top floor has the kitchen, dining area which seats 6 comfortably, and a large lounge opening out to the top balcony. There is a beach bar/restaurant facing the house which serves excellent food and drinks all day long, and several others along the beach - we have tried them all and recommend them all too !!.
The property has a communal swimming pool with a smaller shallow pool for young children and there is a bar where you can buy refreshments during the summer months. There is no menu but Ana Paula prepares lovely snacks on request and more substantial meals with a bit of notice - best to let her know if you might require meals service in advance.
The house has a lot of space and has over 40 square metres of sea and sun facing balcony space. The top balcony has an electric sun blind to provide some protection from the sun and is ideal for spending the evenings listening to the sea and eating 'al fresco'. We always have breakfast out on the balcony watching the last of the fishing boats returning to the harbour. If we wake up early we watch the sun come up, sun rise is pretty spectacular.

Both double bedrooms have balconies which look out over the sea, being the perfect way to wake up on your holiday.
The top balcony is ideal for eating outside with a fabulous view of the coast, westwards to Lagos town and to Dona Ana probably about 3km across the bay and eastwards towards Alvor with Praia da Rocha in the distance. Breakfast on the balcony is a particular treat.There is a large white metal table on this balcony with 6 matching chairs and there are several spare garden chairs which can be used if necessary - there is plenty of space !!
The bottom balcony is the largest and has a few chairs and a couple of sun beds to relax on.
Large potted plants on each balcony - including an orange tree on the bottom balcony which produces oranges seemingly every other year.

The Algarve region
The Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal and it's one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations well known for glorious year round sunshine and excellent sandy beaches. The western Algarve is unspoilt with many rocky coves and sandy beaches very close to Lagos where you could have the beach to yourself.
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 beautiful beaches, but by venturing just a few miles inland, you can lose yourself in the heritage and history of the Algarve.
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.
Lagos enjoys a fantastic climate for most of the year, and benefits from it's close location next to the sea, a scenic coastline, and historical patrimony. It also has plenty of cultural and night-life entertainment venues which cater for all age groups - there are plenty of late night bars/clubs which come to life after 10pm and literally hundreds of restaurants . Many local traditions are celebrated, ranging from architecture to gastronomy and handicrafts.
Lagos has 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.
Meia Praia (which means half beach) with it's soft and white sand, is a sweeping bay about 4 - 5 km long and is a blue flag beach. The water is clear and great for swimming and is only about 200m from the property.
Just 3km away across the bay westwards, and visible from the house is Dona Ana beach, also a blue flag beach, which is probably the beach most frequented by tourists, and for good reason. The sand on Dona Ana is slightly thicker than the beaches in the surrounding area, and the beach itself is bounded by lovely rock formations. Dona Ana is essentially split into two beaches with a protruding cliff separating the two sides at high tide. Again, the sea is very clear and great to swim in and there are 2 restaurants overlooking the bay which do a variety of dishes. The local fishermen come onto the beach in their small fishing boats to pick you up for a trip round the caves (grotto) which is excellent value for about €10 pp.
Palmares golf club is 1.5km away and Boavista golf club is only 8km from the apartment.
From the port of Lagos you can organise various activities and excursions such as boat hire, scuba diving, dolphin watching, sea fishing, cave exploration by boat, surfing, windsurfing and many more. There is an excellent water park (near Guia) about 25 minutes away which children (and most adults!) will love and also a zoo marine park which has dolphin and sea lion shows, children's funfair rides and a water park.
If you prefer, you can sit in or outside one of the many restaurants and cafes in Lagos or just watch the boats in the marina and enjoy the local cuisine.
The most south-westerly point of Europe, Cape da St Vincente, is only about 20kms away and is reported to be a THE place to listen to the sea and watch the sun set over the Atlantic.
There are also lots of picturesque towns and mountain villages to visit in and around the Algarve and not too far from Lagos.
Nearby on the beach road back to town there is a new 4 star hotel opened in 2009 which has a spa, gym, indoor pool, minigolf etc which is open to the public for a small fee - ask at the hotel reception. A 5 star hotel opened in 2011 a few hundred metres east - left along the beach road, and similarly has facilities open to the public. We have used the pool/spa/gym at both hotels and the daily rate is very reasonable. Use of these facilities would be a bonus for a winter break . You pass the 4 star hotel on your left as you drive along the Miea Praia beach road about 400 metres before the turning to our house and the 5 star hotel is a few hundred metres further .

"Beautiful views and spacious accomodations"
Relaxing and beautiful view of the ocean. Meia Praia is beautiful, early morning walks are a must. Spacious apartment well equipped.… More
Thanks for your very nice comments about our spacious apartment and Meia Praia. I am sorry that the bathroom did not get a high ranking, our cleaners are always very thorough and I will let them know that we have had your feedback.The middle floor bathroom was completely refurbished earlier this year and the lower bathroom is being refurbished in October. Our bed linen is high quality linen frequently renewed, I will remind the cleaning crew to check for wear and tear and to replace any sub-standard linen with our new stock always available to them. I did apologise for forgetting to refund your security deposit. I repaid it the same day that you reminded me and explained that there had been a bit of turmoil as I had had a major health scare (removal of a tumour) in the previous 3 weeks and had just received the all clear that week. I again apologise for our shortcomings but am very pleased that you still feel confident in recommending us to your friends. We hope to hear from you in the future.

Thanks for your kind comments about the spaciousness of our town house, and we do try to keep it well equipped. The sea is chilly at times but the currents seem to move the water around a little bit unpredictably and we have had water warm enough to swim in as early as April, had cool periods later in the summer, and sometimes at its warmest in September and October. I am sorry that the pool was over-chlorinated .This has never been a problem before and I will bring it to the attention of the pool operator. I hope we can welcome you back sometime in the future.

We first stayed one week in September 2011. The best comment we can make on our experience with the property and its landlord is to have returned for 2 weeks in July 2012. Location, condition are equipment are all excellent and the landlord, with Anna Paula's help, makes everyting very easy. Nothing has disappointed. Hoping to be back again!
Nice to have you back staying with us, hope to welcome you again in 2013 !

"Fantastic property, easily accessible to fabulous beach and vibrant town of Lagos!"
We had a great holiday ... it's a perfect location for families with teenagers, as they could make their own way into Lagos safely. Very close to a superb beach with water sports, sun beds and great beach bars!
The property is beautifully decorated and very spacious and has the use of a good sized communal pool. Added to all of this, we were lucky enough to have fantastic weather every day and a great tan as a result! Will definitely be returning.
Your comments are much appreciated, hope to see you again.
