Lagos is a mix of market town, historic seaport and popular beach resort. Lagos is one of the most ancient towns in the Algarve: a fishing harbour enclosed by crumbling walls, set on a beautiful wide bay. Lagos holidays offer the opportunity to get a real taste of Portuguese life in a fishing port with a vibrant atmosphere, a great deal of charm and a certain touch of sophistication. Holidays in Lagos tend to focus on the old town. Lagos was the former capital and has plenty of cultural and historical interest, traditional character and graceful architecture. Much of the old city wall has been restored. Walk around the narrow cobbled streets of the pedestrianised Old Town to see the pretty whitewashed houses, colourful flower-decked squares, museums and churches.
A great choice for beach lovers. There's a wide selection of beaches ranging from tiny sandy coves backed by cliffs, to the vast expanses of the spectacular Meia Praia. The coast here is a pretty mix of tiny coves, caves, grottoes and weird rock formations. Try the lovely cove at Praia do Pinhao and the outstandingly picturesque Praia de Dona (immediately below our Iberlagos Studio). The main Lagos beach is the expansive Meia Praia to the east (Across the swinging bridge from the Patio Apartment). Meia Praia is a long, wide well-equipped stretch of sand and shingle. Lagos offers many opportunities for windsurfing, sailing, canoeing and diving at both Meia Praia and Porto de Mos. Lagos is also a great base for golfers, with excellent courses Palmares, Boavista and Espiche only a few minutes dive away. Parque da Floresta, Penina, Morgado and Alamos are all less than half an hour drive.
Lagos offers a great selection of restaurants with fantastic seafood and fish served on outdoor terraces. Nightlife includes a good selection of cocktail bars and a few excellent nightclubs. The Marina is another focal point for bars and restaurants. There's also some excellent shopping with chic boutiques and plenty of crafts, including fine lace, copperware, jewellery and a monthly market. Why not take an excursion to the Barao de Sao Joao National Park, the Monchique Mountains, Cape St Vincent, Silves Castle or the town of Loule.
My wife and I have just returned from a very pleasant week at this apartment. The intention was to get away for a short break following the Christmas and New Year festivities, and to hopefully get a little bit of much needed sunshine!
The apartment itself is spacious, with (nearly) everything needed to be self sufficient. The only things missing are an oven (although there is a microwave), and a soap dish in the fantastic shower! We knew that there wasn't an oven from the property description, and it would probably only be used in the winter months anyway, but having one would mean that you could be totally self sufficient!
We had the complex totally to ourselves as it was very out of season. We prefer it that way, and could really enjoy the peace and quiet. The only downside was that it is at this time of year when owners have their properties renovated, and so there was a bit of building/renovating in nearby apartments going on which caused a bit of noise occasionally. The pool and bar area were closed during our stay and so we can't comment on those facilities, but they looked pretty good from what we could see.
It's just a ten to fifteen minute stroll to old town Lagos, where there are dozens of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes, and the beach (which the apartment overlooks) is just a stones throw away down some steps. Even though we had the apartment doors closed at night we could still hear the beautiful sound of the waves crashing onto shore - guaranteeing a good nights sleep!
We would recommend this apartment for its cleanliness, facilities, location and value for money, and we will certainly think about returning in the future.

What a great base to have an amazing holiday from. The apartment is clean and has all you need to base yourself from to explore the town, beaches, restaurants, clubs and bars.
The beach is just down a few steps from the apartment and after a day on the beach on the way back to the room a quick dip in the pool and a cold beer is easily accessible on the complex.
Everything is within walking distance or a short taxi back from the hyper Marché when you get the shopping in to stock the apartment cupboards for your stay.
Everything from start to finish was great, David was very helpful in the booking and we were greeted at the apartment by Pedro when we arrived to welcome us and show us around the apartment.
We loved it here, great view of the ocean when you step on the veranda, its quiet and simply a great place to be.
I will be going back for sure and tempting more people to head there.
Thank you David and Pedro for making our holiday a great and memorable one.
We will be in touch soon to book again.

The property was everything we had expected and more! The room was exactly how it looked in the picture. Air conditioning was perfect, shower was perfect, the beach was amazing, staff were extremely helpful. The only bad part was that my friend and I were staying here so I slept in the bed and he slept on the pull out. The problem was the pull-out was extremely uncomfortable and appeared to be broken, since when we pulled it out it was angled weirdly. His back killed him from sleeping on it. He just ended up sleeping in the bed with me, however everything else was so great! Best value for your money. The town is extremely close and everyone seemed nice.

Excellent studio with stunning views, the complex was spotless, pool quiet and only a stones throw from a stunning sandy beach. Beach restaurant very good food and good value, only a 5min walk into the old town with more bars and restaurants than you could use in our two week holiday. had a fantastic time setting perfect. Cheers,
