About Debbie Collis
My partner Peter and I brought our lovely apartment 11 years ago, after falling in love with Lagos and the wonderful portuguese people. We live in West Sussex, where Peter runs his own business and I work at Gatwick Airport.
Debbie Collis purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Debbie Collis chose Albardeira
The location is fabulous, and we have made some good friends over the years. The small complex is perfect for families all year. In the off-peak seaons, June, Sept and October, the weather is still fabulous, and you can sometimes have the whole pool area to yourselves. Perfect for unwinding and relaxing in the hot sun.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property has it own private back garden, equipped with sunloungers and table & chairs for those evening bar-be-que's.

Outstanding Villa in excellent location.
We've recently returned from a fantastic 2 week stay at the Villa with 6 family members and our 2 year old daughter.
We were there for 14th June to 29th June and enjoyed every minute. We were made to feel extremely welcome by Debbie. Who arranged out transfers from the Airport with Pedro the Taxi driver .
Pedro was very helpful with everything, full of good advice and nothing is too much trouble for him.
We had a lovely villa with fantastic views. The villa is situated in a great position, it's very relaxing and everything is within walking distance. The old town is just a 10 min stroll away with lovely restaurants and shops.
We are now trying to work out when we can go back as we enjoyed the holiday, location and villa so much. The villa is fully equipped so its like going from home to home.
Many thanks for your review, we look forward to welcoming you again . Debbie and Peter
Great accommodation and holiday
The accommodation was clean, spacious and very well equipped. The pool was lovely and a great bonus to have your own sun loungers so no early morning towel runs! We stayed in August and only saw a couple of other families there most of the time and sometimes we were on our own. The large, sandy beach is about 15-20 minutes walk. Only a couple of beach restaurants though that were being booked for lunch as they opened so take a packed lunch with you. We were a party of 6 with 4 teenagers and the girls could walk into Lagos and back on their own safely in the evening. The walk back is uphill so you'll walk off your dinner! It got windy at night in Lagos when we were there and we needed a light jumper later in the evening. The large supermarket is about 15 minutes away and we got a taxi back easily for under 6 euros (ask in the store for the number). There is a shopping trolley in the garage if you don't need too much and don't want to carry bottles back. We had a great holiday here and would be happy to return again.
clean,spacious,well equiped,great location.
we had a great two week stay, we had a car but apartment was walking distance to town, beach and harbour. pool was great and we had it all to ourselves quite a few times. will definitely go back there !
Lovely holiday. Lagos has all you can want in a holiday
We thought the accomadation was great. Plenty of room excellent location and pool area was lovely. I would definitely stay again.
Thank you so much, we are both so pleased you enjoyed your holiday
A lovely apartment, with a swimming pool close by. Distance to the town via the marina is about a 20 min walk but a taxi ride back is only 5 euros.
With a small supermarket near by and the large Pingo Doce a taxi ride away you can get all the items you need.
Really lovely owners
Fantastic Holiday Apartment
We really enjoyed our stay in this light, airy and very spacious apartment. It was well equipped with everything you need for holiday.
The information and help we were given from the owners before and after booking was excellent and very welcome.
The apartment and surrounding area is very quiet and relaxing and an ideal place to unwind.The pretty patio area at the back of the apartment was ideal for b-b-q s and relaxing in the sun .
The pool was refreshing and very welcome in the hot June weather! It was great to have your own sunbeds and uninterrupted views of the sea.
Having visited Portugal a couple of times before , we all agreed that Lagos was a great place to stay for all ages. It has a great selection of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Beautiful beaches and the chance to try out many varied water sports adds to the attraction.
We would definitely love to return.
Thank you so much Carol for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and our apartment, and look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Debbie & Pete
