Apartment Vasco da Gama is a large, second floor apartment - with lift access - superbly situated on the 5 Star award winning Marina de Lagos, and only a ten minute walk to Meia Praia beach. The restaurants and bars on the Marina quayside are a few minutes stroll away and a further two minutes will take you across the bridge into Lagos town centre where there are many more shops, bars and award winning restaurants to choose from. The golf courses at Palmares - voted best in Europe at the 2017 European Travel Awards - and Boavista Golf Resort are within five to ten minutes drive and the courses at Penina to the east and Parque da Floresta Golf and Leisure Resort to the west are about 25 minutes drive away. Behind the apartment (but completely out of site) is a huge supermarket, Pingo Doce, which caters for all self-catering needs and includes a deli, bakery, huge selection of fish and meats, fruit and vegetables, a cafe and also has a clothing store too.

Apartment Vasco da Gama is a well furnished, spacious two bedroom apartment which is reached by lift. The large open plan lounge is furnished with twin sofas, and a dining table to seat six. Both the bedrooms and the open plan living/dining room have sliding doors opening on to a large balcony, which has beautiful views over the Marina. Both bedrooms are twin bedded and the apartment has the added facility of cool and heat air conditioning in both bedrooms and living/dining area. As the units have a heating function, this makes the apartment an ideal low season base too. Satellite / new smart, interactive TV including Sky sports, movies, box sets and all UK HD channels and free WiFi are also included. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and there is also a separate shower room with toilet. Both bedrooms have large wardrobes with ample hanging, shelf and drawer space. The kitchen is well equipped with an oven, hob, 'fridge freezer and microwave. There is also an integral Zannusi washing machine provided too.
Should you require cot facilities, this can be provided locally by the management team.

Out & About
The cosmopolitan town of Lagos, which many believe to be the best on the Algarve, is on your doorstep. There are many beaches to choose from, the largest being the Meia Praia which stretches for 5kms round the coast to Alvor and has watersports to suit all needs; it also has surfing schools too. Praia da Batata is situated beneath the cliffs in front of the Fort in the city; Praia da Dona Ana has spectacular views of the rock formations and beautiful seas and Praia do Camilo is a small and stunning beach and is home to the very famous Restaurante O Camilo.
The Marina dominates the river as it opens into the sea and you can choose activities such as deep sea fishing, dolphin watching trips and yacht hire as well as the superb Grotto trips. Lagos is an historic town with some city walls still standing and there are several museums and churches worth a visit. This is a working Portuguese town with markets, shops and plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from. The fabulous west coast beaches, where the surfing is renowned, are only 30 minutes drive away and the Monchique hills and the historic old capital of the Algarve, Silves, is an equal distance to the East. As Apartment Vasco da Gama is so centrally situated, a car is not essential for your holiday enjoyment but to gain an appreciation of just what the Western Algarve can offer, a car is recommended.

Couple from Noyers, France · February 2022
We stayed at the apartment for 5+ weeks over January / February 2022 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The apartment is clean, functional and is in an ideal spot on the Marina - quieter, but within striking distance of the restaurants and marinas and onwards into town. Highly recommended!

Our first time in Portugal, just returned from 10 nights in the apartment, it’s very spacious and clean. The view is beautiful, location is perfect, for access to beachfront, swimming pool, local supermarket, bars, restaurants/night life with no hassle and security regularly patrolling. Having a washing machine meant was little to do on return. ...

We have just come back from another fantastic trip to Lagos. As long term visitors to the area, the location of the apartment was perfect; close to the Marina and all the facilities it has to offer, ditto beach and town. The apartment was very clean, well kitted out, with perfect views. The entertainment package and WiFi were excellent; especially...

Hi Nicola, Many thanks for your extremely well constructed, very favourable and informative review which is really appreciated. I take your points regarding the en-suite shower, which is indeed very powerful and will look to rearrange the wall fitting accordingly. I will also be replacing the balcony table at the end of this year's bookings as...

Our apartment is family owned and was completed and furnished in April 2007. It is owned by my brother who runs his own mortgage advice company, my partner who is a Matron in the NHS and myself,, saving people money every day with Utility Warehouse. We bought the apartment - our first in tthe overseas property market - before it was completed and it gives us everything we want; fantastic views of the marina, lots of space and its proximity to great restaurants, the beach and the beautiful old town. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
