Two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Top floor apartment set within a modern two storey Villa, with private Roof Terrace and BBQ, located only 200 meters from Meia Praia beach and beach restaurants, and only a 5 minute drive from the Marina, Palmares golf course and Lagos historic centre. The Villa can be rented as a whole or separate: ground floor with private pool or top floor with private roof terrace. Great for family holidays, golf enthusiasts or joint couple retreat.

Available for long winter lets: November-March.

Minimum stay is usually 7 nights but flexible in between arrivals and departures. Please ask owner for more information.

Our modern two bedroom apartment has magnificent views of Meia Praia beach, one of western Algarve´s largest beaches and voted one of the top 10 best beaches on the Algarve. If preferred not to use a car, you can enjoy a 20 minute walk on the beach towards Lagos, where there are various beach restaurants/cafes along the way. For all the sport enthusiasts, there are various sports available nearby such as windsurfing, kite-surfing, wakeboarding, water-skiing, kayaking, diving, sailing, surfing, golf and tennis, amongst others.

Located in a tranquil residential area, right next to a four star resort, the property is only 5 minute drive from the animated town centre. Nearby, there are several restaurants just walking distance from the house that offer some of the best fish and seafood. You can also enjoy an afternoon coffee or evening drink at one of these beach bars whilst relaxing on one of Algarve´s largest and picturesque beaches.

The historic fishing town of Lagos offers so much to see and explore. It is the perfect place to unwind with its stunning sandy beaches but also a place to discover the rich Portuguese culture. With so much to offer, Lagos is one of the most desired towns on the Algarve´s western coast.

The historic centre of Lagos with its characteristic cobbled streets and its numerous restaurants serving a variety of local specialities including its infamous fish and seafood, are what attracts visitors from all over the world. A rich cultural history, great weather, award winning blue flag beaches, a lively marina and animated town centre, is what makes Lagos one of the most appealing touristic destinations.

We usually recommend hiring a car, only for facilitating in exploring the hidden treasures of the Algarve. But there are other means of travel. Just about 200 meters from the house there is a bus service which takes you to the Lagos Marina and town centre.

About Carolina B.

Our family is Portuguese, however, we have lived abroad for many years. We've been coming to Meia Praia, Lagos for years as it was family tradition to gather up in the summer. We decided to design and build our house on family property which was completed in 2009.

Carolina B. purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Carolina B. chose Meia Praia

Our family for generations have gone to Meia Praia. We love the versatility of the Algarve and we try to come to Lagos as much as possible. We have been coming to Meia Praia for more than 30 years as there is so much to offer. Great beaches, great restaurants and an animated night life in Lagos town center is what makes us not go anywhere else on vacation.

Le paradis!

  • 5 of 5

Quel endroit superbe! Cette propriété est idéalement située c'est ce qui en fait son attrait principal. La plage de Meia Praia est à 2 minutes à pied, merveilleuse plage pour prendre des marches quotidiennes. Nous partions chaque matin vers Lagos par la plage (environ 35 minutes). L'endroit est tranquille, sécuritaire. Bien équipé il y a tout ce qu'il faut dans la cuisine pour se préparer de bons petits repas.. Il y a un barbecue, un balcon magnifique, c'est très bien entretenu et Carolina est une hôte disponible et à l'écoute de vos besoins. Je recommande sans hésitation.

Beautiful property with great views!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location. The views are wonderful. Carolina was an excellent source of information. Our only issue was that the place was without the basics. We purchased salt and pepper, dish soap, laundry soap, hand soap, toilet paper, sugar......etc. We are VRBO owners in Boulder, CO and we make sure the basics are well stocked.

Beautiful apartment and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed in the second-floor apartment for a week. It was absolutely marvelous, the views were stunning and the location was excellent. The apartment was well-equipped, clean and comfortable! Carolina was a wonderful host and answered any of our questions in a very timely manner. She even came to find us when we got lost on our way to the apartment. We would definitely stay here again. We had a fantastic vacation, thanks so much for sharing your home with us!

Beautiful apartment, extremely helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in a great location! The view was stunning! Well equipped with everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable. My friends and I loved it and would definitely stay there again. Although you could walk to town, I would recommend a car. Getting around was easy with a car. Carolina was quick to respond to any questions we had before and during our stay! Thanks we had a wonderful vacation! Highly recommend!!!! ( we stayed in the second floor apartment)

My wife and I spent two memorable weeks at this terrific apartment the last two weeks in January while our friends occupied the lower apartment. As noted unanimously by others, both apartments are very spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. The lower floor has an attractive pool although it was a bit cool for soaking in January. However, we spent many comfortable, sunny afternoons and early evenings on the roof enjoying tapas and wine with a fabulous view of Meia Praia and the sea. Both apartments have BBQ’s to grill fresh fish, chicken or meats. We were all extremely impressed by a welcoming basket, and how incredibly and thoroughly responsive Carolina was to a long list of questions before we arrived, and how promptly Carolina and John resolved a couple of minor problems after we moved in. She provided an extensive list of places to shop, where to eat (the fresh fish and view from O Camilo are amazing), and what to see in that area of the Algarve. We recommend having a rental car since there is so much to see in the area, e.g. Sagres (don’t miss the fishermen fishing from the high cliffs!!), Silves, Monchique et al., but there is also a local bus that conveniently takes you to the city center. In short, we highly recommend both of these apartments, and they are exactly as described on the excellent website. We have already booked to return, and wish we were going sooner.
