About Joanne Sadique
Getting away from it all is something my husband and I look to do whenever we have the opportunity. Time to escape the hectic work schedules and fly away to the sunshine! We love sampling the local food and wine at one of the many great restaurants, exploring the historical town and taking leisurely strolls along the beach. We have always sought to stay in high quality accommodation offering the same levels of comfort that we enjoy at home, I can therefore confidently recommend our holiday home, without hesitation, to those who enjoy the little extras and wish to holiday in comfort and style. Quality accommodation in a great location.
Joanne Sadique purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Joanne Sadique chose Lagos
Once we discovered Lagos we knew this was the place for us, beautiful historical town, best beaches in the Algarve, great restaurants and real Portuguese culture, unspoilt by mass tourism! The town planners have carefully protected the historical buildings, hence Lagos has been able to retain its character & charm. The apartment is set in the exclusive Lagos Marina which is THE best location in Lagos, literally within a few minutes walk and you can enjoy the waterfront bars of the marina, fabulous restaurants, shops & the amazing old town of Lagos. Although it is central, the apartment is private & peaceful ensuring your days & evenings are not disturbed. The pool is fantastic and only for the guests of this small complex. A car is not required.
What makes this Apartment unique
We immediately fell in love with the apartment because of its huge balcony with stunning views of the swimming pool, marina and Lagos. Its privileged location as part of the 'award winning' Lagos Marina is a major bonus. We enjoy relaxing on the sun loungers and taking refreshing dips in the lovely pool during the day and then, as the sun goes down, watching the lights of Lagos begin to twinkle from the apartment balcony is a real treat, we then wander into Lagos for an evening meal, a glass of wine and soak up the friendly atmosphere. Furnished and maintained to a very high standard, Apartment Chic is a real home from home, having lots of extras such as BBC/ITV and SKY TV in the lounge and master bedroom, iPod dock and free WiFi. The kitchen includes a Nespresso Dolce coffee machine & dishwasher. We strive to maintain the apartment to the highest of standards to ensure our guests wish to return year after year.

Very well equip and spacious apartment with a lovely balcony. The whole complex was immaculate and quiet perfect for a week to chill but still close enough to town to wander and eat in the evening. The pool is cold but once you are in lovely and refreshing.
Owner Joanne and managers couldn't have been more obliging arranging transfers and early arrival and late checkout.
Dear Barbara. It was a pleasure having you as our guest. I hope you will stay at Apartment Chic again should you visit Lagos in the future. Very best regards. Joanne.
Fun in the sun
Great from start to finish.
Thanks Reg. Glad you had an enjoyable stay. Joanne.
This is the 4th time we’ve stayed in this complex and this apartment is the same high standard as the others we’ve stayed in. Well decorated and equipped, great location - close to beaches, shops, restaurants and not far to old town. Lagos is very family-friendly with plenty to see and do for all ages.
Hi Lynne. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at apartment Chic. It is in a great location to get around and explore Lagos on foot. Very best regards. Joanne.
Great location, lovely spacious apartment
We really liked this apartment. 5-10 mins walk to the Marina bars and restaurants and 20 min walk to the old town for dinner and mooching. Perfect for a quiet space with easy access to the bustle of Lagos. Based next to the marina this area is clean and well looked after. The apartment was well equipped and literally across the road from a very well stocked supermarket. Fridge, freezer, washing machine, toaster, kettle, coffee machine a shared pool and air conditioning that actually worked! (If it goes off it will be the switch in the junction box that’s tripped) - what more could you want?
Can highly recommend the Days of Adventure Kayak trip. The fort at Sagres and the castle at Silves if you’re into medieval history. The bars and restaurants along the beach at Portinao are also relaxing for passing a leisurely hour or two. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we have.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to write such a informative review, I am sure future guests will find it very helpful. My very best regards and I hope you will return to Apartment Chic in the near future. Joanne.
Sunny days in Portugal !
This is lovely apartment right on the Marina with a short walk into the town and a supermarket just across the road. We really enjoyed our stay with many regrets it was only for a week. Joanne the owner was kind and helpful, a pleasure to deal with.
Many thanks Norman. I hope you had a lovely time. Joanne.
Great apartment, wonderful location
The apartment was perfect for all our needs. The location couldn’t have be better, right near the Marina and a 5 minute walk to downtown. Lagos is a wonderful little city on the most beautiful coastline. I highly recommend both the apartment and the city.
Thank you for your great review, I am so pleased you loved the apartment and its central location. I hope you will return in the future. Very best regards, Joanne.
The beaches of Lagos are arguably the best in the Algarve! Just a short stroll from the apartment is the stunning 'Meia Praia' beach which boasts 5km's of soft, golden sand stretching as far as the eye can see! A refreshment stop at one of the Beach Bistros is a must. Great for lunch and the best place to watch the fabulous sunsets. The main attraction however is the beautiful & atmospheric old town with a fabulous array of restaurants & shops. There is always something going on in Lagos making it a great place to visit at any time of the year.
Many airlines fly from the UK to Faro including: EasyJet, RyanAir, Jet2, Monarch and British Airways. From the airport, the apartment is a pleasant 45 min drive along a quiet motorway. We are happy to arrange your private airport transfers. The driver we use regularly will meet you in the arrivals hall and take you directly to the apartment. Should you prefer to arrange your own transfers try Yellow Fish Transfers. Once you are at the apartment a car is not required as everything is within walking distance.
