Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
We love this apartment but just don't get to use it enough. Porto de Mos is a very up scale development above cliffs and the famous sandy Porto de Mos beach which is just 5 minutes walk away.
The apartment is ideal for families with children of all ages. It is ground floor with easy access to the pool but with a degree of privacy. Parents can keep an eye on the children who can harmlessly roam the gardens and if you have a toddler, the terrace is easily secured to make a good sized play area - and peace of mind for you.
It has two bedrooms, the second has two twin beds and the lounge has two comfortable sofa beds - good for up to two additional children or maybe a young adult.
Out of school holiday time couples will find this an ideal base for the cultured highlights of Lagos and the Western Algarve providing an elegant retreat if you just want to relax in peaceful and luxurious surroundings.

|Further details outdoors||
You can see the sun shining off the Atlantic in the morning from the master bedroom terrace but just to be clear - it's really an apartment with views of the delightful gardens and a short walk to the beach rather than one where you can sit all day gazing out to sea.
English lady property manager based in Lagos is on call as needed.
Meet & greet included in rental service.
Welcome pack and airport taxi available on request.
A car is highly recommended as Intermarche supermarket is only 3 minutes by car but a bit of a walk. Also the car park at the foot of the old town walls of Lagos is only 5 minutes drive away.
The famous Boavista golf course and development is less than 5 minutes drive away.
The Algarve region
Really Lagos and the beach at Porto de Mos can keep you entertained for a full two weeks but a bit of exploring will yield the end of Europe over looking the Atlantic at Sagres and beyond to Cape St Vincent, the very scenic cork growing hills of Monchique and the Moorish hill town of Silves.
If you want to go a bit more touristic, then as you move eastwards along the coast you can visit the lovely fishing villages of Ferragudo and Alvor and then really start to hit the large resorts of Albufeira, Vilamoura and so on. There's golf of course and it's even rumoured that Formula 1 is coming to the race circuit at Portimao just up the road from Lagos. We'll see.
Lagos is still very much a Portuguese town with all year round activity due to its resident Portuguese population. It has a very interesting old town inside the mediaeval walls with cobbled streets, museums and a gallery as well as many good but reasonably priced restaurants.
It has an active modern marina, a zoo just outside town and, perhaps most famously, those world renowned beaches with arches and grottoes beneath the cliffs. There are boat trips to take you to the more remote beaches or to see the dolphins.
