About Mary Palmer
We have lived in the Algarve for more than 25 years, working and bringing up our two children. They have now moved to the UK but we still see a lot of them when they come over for holidays. We now spend our time enjoying the outdoor life here and doing a variety of sporting activities, including running, swimming and cycling, as well as looking after the farm we have lived on since we moved to the Algarve, and of course our dog and cats. We love the relaxed life style we enjoy here, and as well as owning this house we have three other holiday properties which also keep us busy throughout the year
Mary Palmer purchased this House in 2008
Why Mary Palmer chose Lagos Centre
We decided to add this house to our portfolio because of its location. Set within the city walls of Lagos, it is a great place to stay as it is so conveniently located for Lagos town centre. It is a two minute walk into the middle of the bustling town, with its narrow cobbled streets, pedestrian zones, busy restaurants and lively night life. Lagos also boasts its own train station, with trains going across the Algarve to the Spanish border and north to Lisbon, Porto and beyond. There is also a good network of local buses and the taxi rank is a five minute walk away. We love the countryside but also enjoy the city life, with its friendly cafes and proximity to shops and restaurants
What makes this House unique
The roof terrace was the deciding factor in our purchase of this house. The house is set on the hill above the fish and vegetable market, and offers great views. There is always something to look in the fishing harbour with the boats delivering their catch to the dock, and the unspoilt stretch of Meia Praia, is a view you can never tire of. Lagos town itself is also delightful, with the local population always ready to welcome visitors.

Great holiday in Lagos!
We enjoyed very much our stay in Lagos. The place we stayed was like home away away from home. Everything we needed was there and will definitely book the same place on our next visit to Lagos. Our host Mary Palmer was very nice and helpful and responds quickly to our calls. Great place to spend a holiday!
Best apartment and views in old town Lagos !
Absolutely the perfect location in old town Lagos, high up near the Church and splendid views in all directions from the rooftop terrace.
An original Lagos building that has been very well fitted out internally, everything we could think of was there.... right down to the all important corkscrew for opening bottles of wine.
10/10 and now our 'go-to' place for our next visit to Lagos.
Picture perfect property
We have just returned from an eleven night stay in this property in Lagos and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Four of us stayed (2 couples) and found it exactly as shown in the images on the sight, the quality of fixtures and fittings was excellent as was the level of available equipment and utensils everything you may need has been thought about and provided.
The owner Mary met us at the local supermarket and took us to the house to showed us around as well as providing a welcome pack of groceries (including a nice bottle of red) which was a bonus.
The views from the lounge and especially the roof terrace of the mariner and nearby beaches is even better that the website shows. The house is just far enough from the huge number of bars and restaurants to be blissfully quiet but close enough to allow you to sample them after a quick stroll.
Overall we had a wonderful base from which to enjoy Lagos by day or night as well as the surrounding beaches and countryside. Oh and the weather was brilliant too.
In the words of the immortal Arnie, "We'll be back."
Fantastic property with amazing views over the marina and town. Great decor and everything you need.
House had a great set up- clean, comfortable and convenient!
Live Longer in Lagos
Our accommodations and its location were ideal. Drinks and food were supplied upon our arrival and got us through and more until we were able to get to the supermarket which was about 6 minutes away. Everything was within our grasp: restaurants, shops, bus and train stations and the marina where a boat toured us along the amazing cliffs and beaches. We breakfasted on the side terrace while looking over the marina and in the afternoons we sat on the upper terrace and took in Meia Praia. Hilly streets and winding alleys added to the charm and our overall health thus our title for this review.
The town of Lagos has a long history and is associated with exploration of the New World. There is a town museum and various attractions celebrating this theme. Casa Sebastiao is inside the city walls, which wrap round the historic centre, and enclose the narrow winding cobbled streets. There are several beaches within walking distance of the house, and the main beach Meia Praia, can be reached by a footbridge. This is an expanse of 5km of golden sands, and there is always space on it for sunworshipping or enjoying the ocean. It also boasts several bars/restaurants along its length for a relaxed lunch. Lagos has a thriving marina, which is lined with cafes and bars, and is also reached across the footbridge. It is not necessary to have a car to enjoy a holiday in Lagos but it does give more freedom to explore the glorious West coast, with its stunning unspoilt beaches. These are becoming well known as a surfer's paradise, and many companies offer tuition and equipment hire. It is also possible to go out on a boat from Lagos harbour, either a rowing boat with outboard to explore the caves and grottos, a bigger traditional sailing boat for a day's sailing and a swim, or a fishing boat to try your luck at catching some fresh fish for dinner. There is an excellent zoo about 8kms outside Lagos, set in beautiful countryside. Here there is a good show of primates, birds and other creatures, plus a section especially suitable for younger visitors.
