This new modern, spacious apartment is situated on a small development behind the Marina, in the historic town of Lagos, on the western tip of the Algarve. There is a pool on the complex, with showers/WC and changing facilities. From the pool, there is a lovely view out over the sea. The lively 'Marina de Lagos' is only a couple of minutes away with its many excursions available (dolphin watching, fishing, diving plus many more).

Supermarkets, post office, bank machines etc. There are a fine selection of bars and restaurants, as well as art galleries, linen shops, clothes & shoe shops.

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.
Pool / Spa
We have a lovely week at the house. A good location near to the marina . And we had the use of the pool area. And also had a lovely courtyard at the back. Which in the evening we sat out in and played cards . We was fortunate to have lovely weather for the end of September early October . The house was fully equipped with everything you needed .we had fans in each room. Just one minus it would have nice to have air con. Overall we had a fantastic stay. Would come back . Thanks Debbie
Thank you so much for your review.

A great place to stay. Great location, very child friendly, easy access to beach and Lagos
A clean and practical home from home, with 2 young children, it was exactly what we wanted. A great pool which we had mostly to ourselves!
Thank you so much for your review.
We are both so glad you enjoyed your holiday in our apartment

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.
Thank you so much for your review. We are both so glad you all enjoyed your stay in Lagos.

Clean and Spacious
All contact with the owners was very straightforward, with quick response, Debbie organised our transfer, we were met at the airport, by a lovely taxi driver, and collected early on our departure day. We were met at the house by a very helpful lady,(part of the management team) who showed us round and explained how everything worked. You enter the house up some steps, onto the front outdoor area, with small table and chairs, perfect for breakfast, then into a large living/dining/kitchen, very well equipped with lovely furniture. The bathroom is spacious and clean. Both bedrooms (1 twin, 1 double) are spacious and have ample storage, each room opens onto an enclosed garden, complete with table/chairs, BBQ, and sun loungers. There are stairs leading down to the garage, off which is another bedroom and a bathroom, as there was a car and motor scooter parked here it felt strange going through a garage to the bedroom, Unfortunately they also gave off a very strong smell of petrol fumes, and rubber, so much so that the smoke alarm went off early one morning. I emailed the owners who immediately sent round the manager, Dinis, to check it, who removed the scooter outside onto the drive, this helped a little with the smell, but we no longer wanted to use that bedroom.the house is about a 15 minute walk to the harbour (up one hill down another) and then another 15 minute into the town. It is in a residential area and always very quite .It took about 15 minutes also to get to the beach, We walked each morning to the Pingo Dolce supermarket for fresh supplies, about a 10 minute walk, (down hill) we bought a shopping trolley there on the 1st day, this was a great help! A very well maintained pool area is only a minute away, it is all enclosed with locked gates (we had a key) it has wonderful views towards the sea, and lots of space with toilets and showers, although the pool was rather cold! there are sunbeds in the garage to take to the pool, you can leave them there for the duration of the holiday. Lagos is interesting and vibrant, and we had a great holiday.
Thank you very much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday , and are so sorry the issue arose due to the moped in the garage. 1st time this has happened and definitely last time , as moped and car both being removed.
