Stayed for 1 month, fabulous location , stunning apartment everything you could ask for exceptionally clean and well kept with a real homely feel. Close to the town and local supermarket. Good value for money. For those wanting to go walking there are miles and miles of beaches and stunning headlands to visit. Great local shops and great food.
Thanks for a great stay and hope to be back. Iain & Linda

"very possibly one of the best apartments on the Marina"
Furnished with both comfort and character , this apartment provides an ideal holiday stay. Television in the lounge and in both bedrooms ensures that each is able to have their own space when required. It is ideally placed for the large supermarket within three minutes walk, yet sheltered from the traffic noise.
we have stayed in many apartments on the Marina, and have no wish to change now we have discovered 'Chic', very well equipped thus providing every comfort and excellently managed for a trouble free holiday.

"A little piece of heaven"
I am looking forward this week to my fourth visit to apartment 'Chic'. It is very comfortable, nicely furnished and equiped with everything you need. The apartment has views from the balcony across the marina to the town which is easily accessible to walk or by local bus from just behind the apartment. The supermarket is just behind the apartment complex, so easy to acquire stores. I need also to mention the taxi company 'Mystique Algarve' who I have used each year for the airport transfer and have given a brilliant, competitively priced service.

"Fantastic apartment in a great location"
This apartment is great, it has everything you could wish for. The location is also great, and it really is just a 10 minute stroll to the centre of Lagos. Recommend the Dolphin trip - go on "Dizzy Dolphin" boat. If you have got a car then take a trip up to Monchique lovely little town and the views are fantastic.
We had a great holiday and would recommend this apartment and it's location.

"Best Apartment We've Ever Stayed In !!!!"
Hi Joanne, we just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time and also to say thank you so much for the use of your beautiful apartment. From the moment we walked in the door we felt at home - it was lovely. We've stayed in lots of private accommodation and your apartment is definitely the best yet. Could not fault anything about it - we had the best time. Your management company do a brilliant job of maintaining it, every room was spotless, all the towels and bedding were fresh and clean - we loved it.
You have definitely thought of everything in terms of furnishings, it was very comfortable, light and airy. The balcony was huge and we enjoyed sitting out there and relaxing in the sunshine. Having Sky t.v. was brilliant - it's always nice to have the choice if you want to sit down and watch abit of t.v. before you go out in the evening and having english channels was great. We always like to stay somewhere which feels like home and your apartment definitely made us feel that way - in fact we didn't want to leave at the end of the week!!!! The complex itself was great and very well maintained - the pool was clean and the gardens immaculate - you are very lucky to own such a lovely apartment.
The location was brilliant, a short walk into the marina where there were brilliant restaurants and bars and then a little further along into the main town which again had some fantastic restaurants. We didn't have a bad meal all week, in fact we had some excellent food and it was very reasonably priced. The beach was stunning and again was within easy walking distance of the apartment and we had lovely weather every day.
There's some great places to see in The Algarve and we were so glad we hired a car as we did travel around quite a lot whilst there, unfortunately a week wasn't enough time to do all the things we wanted to do so we will definitely have to return at some point, but we both said that we'd only go back if we could stay in your apartment again !!
All in all a fabulous holiday and thanks again.

We had a wonderful holiday in Lagos, mainly thanks to this lovely apartment that we stayed in; we could not fault it in any way! It is in an exceptionally good location and there is plenty of parking if you have a hire car. The pool area was kept neat and tidy and there are plenty of sun loungers.
The apartment was fully equipped and even came with hairdryers in each bathroom! Decor is chique and gorgeous and a supermarket to cater for all your needs is a stone's throw away.
We visited Lagos during mid October and the weather was very pleasant and warm, The apartment is the perfect base to explore surrounding areas such as Monchique, Sagres, Alvor and Portimao.
We were blessed with lovely weather for the whole week. This+ an amazing apartment = a great holiday! We couldn't have asked for more and would definitely go back there again!

"Gorgeous apartment in a perfect, peaceful location"
I stayed with family at this gorgeous apartment for 5 days in late 2010. The apartment was spotlessly clean and extremely spacious, we found everything we needed (nothing has been forgotten!) and loved having two bathrooms and a large balcony overlooking the pool. More than enough space for the three of us! Every day we were able to get sunbeds around the pool without trouble at any time of day and we had lovely weather despite it being late in the season. This was my fourth visit to Lagos and I love staying in the marina, there are plenty of bars and restaurants on your doorstep and it is a 10 minute walk into Lagos town where there is even more to see and do! There is a supermarket (Pingo) just across the road from the apartment which is perfect if you want to eat in rather than eating out every night. Joanne (the owner) is so helpful and is always a pleasure to speak with, I am looking at booking the apartment again this year and Jo remembers our family which goes to show how great she is! There are plenty of apartments available for hire in Lagos but I would highly recommend this one - it is hard to find any fault with Apartment Chic! The location is perfect, the prices are extremely reasonable for the standard you are getting and I hope to return soon for another fantastic, relaxing holiday.
