Out & About
The cosmopolitan town of Lagos, which many believe to be the best on the Algarve, is on your doorstep. The Marina dominates the river as it opens into the sea and you can choose activities such as deep sea fishing, a dolphin seafari trip and yacht hire. 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 the other way. 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.
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment which was light, clean and spacious and had everything you need for a family holiday. Fantastic location with beautiful views overlooking the Marina and a supermarket literally around the corner! It's just a few minutes walk to the beautiful sandy beach and a few minutes walk over a bridge into the town centre which has a great atmosphere and loads of really nice restaurants and shops. Plenty of activities available, we did kayaking, surfing and dolphin watching! Owner was also really helpful when booking.

We have stayed at this apartment on a previous visit to Lagos. The only problem we had was that the television had no picture. I bought a new aerial lead from a local shop which solved the problem. Otherwise everything was fine and I would visit again in the future.

Spacious, modern appartment with large balcony and excellent view of the marina. Minor quibbles: we cooked for ourselves every day. There were only two saucepans, and the frying pan had lost most of its non stick coating. Would have been nice to have wifi. But, as I say, minor quibbles. Its a lovely appartment and we had a great holiday.

Very spacious apartment with lovely large balcony covering the lounge and 2 bedrooms. Fine views of marina but also handy for supermarket. Apartment cleaned and bedding changed every 4 days when we were there and apartment nicely maintained. Not too far from beach and town. The whole family enjoyed their stay there!

We have stayed in Lagos twice before, in an hotel. We will never go back to a hotel after staying in this apartment. Everything was great - location,quality of furnishings, balcony views & marina club facilities.
Cant fault anything. We will be back!!

Apartment and marina surroundings cant be faulted - best holiday apt we have stayed in. Nice pool at the hotel. V Good quality bars and restaurants in easy/flat walking distance. Lagos quite lively, especially at weekend - we were there late July 09. Also, proximity to Pingos supermarket is great.
Will definitely return.
This is a beautifully furnished and very spacious apartment in an idyllic location. The huge balcony is wonderful to sit out and look over the marina (while wishing one of the yachts was mine!)
The town is a short walk away and filled with many lovely restaurants and bars. Would highly recommend Don Toro Steakhouse!!
Everyone is very friendly and welcoming and have already booked again for July!
About the owner
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.
