Overview

A spacious and comfortable studio apartment in a private condominium at Dona Ana, Lagos with fabulous views of the sea and town. Now with Air Conditioning, Cable TV and Wi-Fi Internet access and laptop.

The apartment has fabulous views overlooking swimming pool Dona Ana and sea views beyond.
It has one double bed, a kitchenette and a bathroom allowing it to accommodate two comfortably.

There's access to the superb pool, tennis court and the beautiful beach of of Dona Ana.

This apartment is 15 minutes stroll to the historic town centre.

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.

Couple from Rotherham, United Kingdom Jun 2016

Little difficulty finding apartment on arrival but a quick phone call to Pedro and he drove out to meet us - after that everything was excellent

Couple from Comber, United Kingdom Jun 2016

We are just back from a wonderful stay at the apartment - the location is fantastic with brilliant views down to Dona Ana beach and is only a short walk to the centre of town (approx 15 mins). The apartment had pretty much everything we needed & was very comfortable. Nice to have access to the pool - we didn't want to pay for loungers but you could just put out a towel on the grass. Would definitely recommend Lagos and this apartment!

Family from London, United Kingdom May 2016

Really enjoyed our stay here. Great view from the terrace of the beach and a short walk down to the beach which was great for us with a toddler. The apartment is ideally located just a short walk from town and a good base to explore the local area with the hire car for which there was ample parking. Apartment was very clean and had everything we needed whilst staying there. Would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of booking

Couple from Selby, United Kingdom Apr 2016

Fantastic apartment. Clean, excellent facilities including wifi. Great location for beach, restaurants and bars.

Couple from Winscombe, United Kingdom Jan 2016

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.

Couple from Neath, United Kingdom May 2015
