The Algarve region
The Algarve is in the south of Portugal on the most southern-west tip of Europe. It's one of the Europeans favourite holiday destinations, well known for glorious year round sunshine, championship golf courses and excellent sandy beaches.
There are about 100 sandy beaches washed by the Atlantic Ocean and due to the maritime shelf and water currents the sea temperature can often be surprisingly warm even in the winter months.The Algarve has a wonderful climate with over 3000 hours of sunshine per year making it a fantastic year round holiday destination. The summers are hot and dry. Temperatures average around 29º, but can rise into the 30ºs, with up to 12 hours of sunshine per day. There is usually a cooling sea breeze which keeps the atmosphere light. Spring and autumn are mild. Temperatures average 17 – 20º and there is plenty of sunshine – perfect for golf and other sports. Winters tend to be mild averaging around 15º.
The Algarve is not just about beaches and golf courses, of which there is almost 40, it is a region stepped in History. LAGOS in the west is one of the most historically interesting coastal towns in the Algarve. It was here during the Age of Discovery that Henry the Navigator had his vessels built for the voyages of exploration down the coast of West Africa.
The Algarve can be reached by air with daily flights from all major European cities to Faro airport. From Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon, there is a direct motorway, IP1, which extends from Porto in the North to the Algarve in the south. The Algarve can be reached from Lisbon, by car, in less then three hours.
One of Portugal’s most luxuriant and charming areas, it is wreathed in fig trees, orange groves and almond trees. Apart from the wealth of available golf and aquatic sports facilities the Algarve also provides a host of other activities including tennis, horse-riding, walking, fishing trips, as well as countless Spas, beaches, restaurants, cafés and quaint bars where you can sample delicious local cuisine. The standard of living is high and costs are relatively low compared to northern Europe.
The Algarve's sunny shores offer perfect escapes for all types of holiday, it really is a European paradise.
The large and sandy Porto de Mos beach is approximately 300m from the apartment. There are two great restaurants on Porto de Mos beach which offer both indoor and terrace seating right next to the surf. You can just have a refreshing drink here, or a snack or a full meal.
The world famous Praia da Dona Ana is about 2km away. There are many other cove beaches running along to the Ponta da Piedade headland and lighthouse. The golden sands of Meia Praia is about 3km away and 5km long and wide too.
Lagos is approximately 3km from the apartment. You can get to Lagos by taxi, hire car or bus, bus stop located at Porto de Mos beach. You can walk to Lagos in 25 minutes.
Lagos is a typical Portugese fishing town with well developed amenities and a magnificent new marina. The town has an excellent range of shops, bars and restaurants. The town is surrounded by sandy beaches, including the famous Meia-Praia beach. There are four great golf courses within a 15 minute drive of Lagos, including Palmares, Boa Vista, Parque de Floresta and Penina
Lagos is an easy place to be- there are ample street cafes and restaurants along the cobbled whitewashed streets, a local market every Saturday morning, interesting small shops, a fresh fish market and a lively night life. From the harbour you can go on a boat trip to spot dolphins, visit caves, fish or even charter your own yacht.
For children who want a change from Porto de Mos swimming pool and from playing on the beaches, there is the Lagos Zoo or a couple of good attractions about 30 minutes drive away: such as a big Slide Splash park and at Zoo Marine there is a wonderful dolphin show, aquarium, 4-d cinema, swimming pool and a few rides too.
Lagos zoo (15 mins) makes for an excellent day out as the zoo boasts a top class restaurant.
Waterparks are available at Lagoa (15 mins) and Guia (30 mins).
Also at Guia is the Zoomarine park and the Algarve shopping centre which opens late most nights.

"The Perfect Stay-everything you need in one place"
We stayed at this Porto de mos property in Sept 2013. This property is a great place to stay. It was spotless, spacious and extremely comfortable. It has every mod con you have in your own home and more, including excellent TV/Audio facilities with every satellite channel you can think of-handy for the odd night you need to slow the pace. There was just the two of us staying it is ideal for a larger group also due to the space. There is a private terrace/garden where you can sit out and enjoy a glass of wine/meal. And a back terrace to watch the sun go down. There is also a swimming pool but as the beach is a 5 min walk away with two beautiful restaurants it is hard not to go to the beach. In terms of restaurants Lagos town is not far away, about a 15-20min walk and a short trip in a taxi, here you find lots of choice and some fantastic seafood restaurants, On the other hand there is a great fish market and the option of barbecuing back at the villa in your garden. We really liked going to the marina for our breakfast, sitting out watching the yachts coming in and out. There is so much on offer in this area its hard not to have a great holiday, everything from romantic beach side restaurants, a vibrant town, hopping nightlife, every sea sport you can think of, shopping some of Portugal's most famous beaches. The accommodation is central to all this and is clean and luxurious. In terms of value I felt we were spoilt and I'm planning a return trip with my family in June for 10 days-can't wait!

"fab apartment, next to beach, all mod cons"
Very comfortable and large apartment. Ideal for my family and I, parents, grandparents and kids. Pool right outside our door so great view of the kids in pool while we sat in our garden. Gate and fencing in garden to prevent our toddler escaping. :-). Doreen attended to our every need and was available 24/7.
