About Deborah Harland
We are a married couple with children and grandchildren and have bought the apartment for the whole family to use and because we fell in love with Lagos. This is, therefore a special place for all of the family and we, therefore try to keep the apartment spotless for ourselves and for our guests. Because we use the apartment a great deal ourselves we have tried to think of all the little things that make a holiday easy and guests have often said that the apartment is like a home from home. The apartment is best suited for couples of any age.
Deborah Harland purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Deborah Harland chose Lagos
We bought the apartment because we love Portugal, especially the Western Algarve and most of all the town of Lagos. The main reason that we chose this particular apartment was the quality of the construction and the location as we wanted to be able to walk to everything; the marina, the beaches, the town, the shops, bars, and restaurants. We wanted to be able to have a holiday without needing to drive anywhere and we also wanted somewhere with a pool and we wanted an apartment that is on the inside of the complex looking over the pool (not at a road).

Excellent apartment, excellent location!
Had a 4 day stay with a friend last week and I have to say we were both very impressed! The apartment was very clean and fully equipped, a real home from home. Pool area was quiet, very clean and secure. The location was 10 minutes slow stroll to the town square and to the Marina. We loved Lagos! Lots of lovely restaurants and some lively bars later at night in the centre but not too rowdy. Something for everyone. Bit of a walk to the beach but worth the effort, we got a little boat back to the main promenade across the Marina water inlet (€0.80). The welcome pack was very generous and much appreciated as we arrived late evening. We’ll definitely be booking again and bringing our husbands! Thanks!
Thanks for the lovely review. Looking forward to you coming back with the chaps!

Terrific apartment, everything you could want for holiday. Welcome extras of water,wine,milk,bread etc were great. Plenty of space with lovely balcony. Folder of local info invaluable. Great restaurant recommended. Also number for taxi as our hoppa transfer never turned up after we waited 1.30min for it. Thankfully taxi got us to airport on time.Loved Lagos and will return. Thanks Craig and Deborah.
Thanks for the sparkling review and glad that you had the taxi number, we always use them and they have never let us down. Hope to see you again one day soon.

A beautiful short visit
A 5 star apartment close to all amenities and beaches. We didn't use a car the whole time. Free WIFI and TV system with Sky Sports for me ! The apartment and condo are immaculate and the pool is large. Lagos is one of the best places that you can ever visit, very laid back but with lots to do. Lots of nice bars and restaurant but very civilised (hardly any Brit bars at all).
Thank you for your kind review. We have just updated the TV system so we are really pleased to see that it is working well and that you managed to watch your sports :)
We had a lovely holiday in Lagos! The apartment was impeccable and to a high standard. The beds were comfy and it was very homely. It was in the perfect location, a short walk to the marina, lots of the beaches and Lagos town (with lots of amazing restaurants to choose from). We would defiantly stay again, without a doubt one of the best apartments we have stayed in abroad.
Apartment is very clean and comfortable. Pool area is lovely. In a brilliant location not too far from the town, beach or marina.
Thank you, glad you had a great stay in the apartment and come back and see us again some time !
Super apartment, in great location
This was our 5th visit to Lagos and our 3rd staying at this super apartment. The location is fantastic with only a short walk to the Marina and old town. The apartment offers great facilities, and is equipped to a high standard. Supermarkets are only a couple of minutes walk away so you can easily stock up on the essentials for your stay. The welcome pack provided was a lovely touch. We shall be back again in 2018.
Thank you for your lovely comments Karen and your booking for next year :)
Kind Regards, Craig and Debbie
The beaches around Lagos are some of the most beautiful in the Algarve. They all have golden sand (no pebbles), great surf and very unspoiled with no buildings allowed to be built near them. The 4km long Meia Praia beach is 10-15 minutes walk away, as are the many Lagos town beaches. Meia Praia has good sporting facilities and restaurants and is ideal for children due to the calm waters. Praia de Dona Ana, which can be reached after a 25-minute walk from the town centre, is said to be the most photographed beach in the Algarve. There are too many others to mention.
You will be spoilt for choice with loads of activities close by.
- Boat Trips: From the marina (5 mins walk) you can book dolphin spotting trips with guaranteed viewing or go on a fishing or grotto trip.
- Waterparks: There are waterparks such as Slide & Splash (30 min drive). Europe's largest water park.
- Zoomarine (40 min drive): is a marine life theme park with an aquarium, dolphin shows, 4D cinema, dolphin interaction and also thrill rides such as the pirate boat and flume ride.
- Walking: There is great coastal walking all around, bike hire and Jeep Safaris.
- Surfing: There are great surfing beaches nearby and a sailing school within walking distance. If you like extreme sports you can book sky diving, kite surfing, windsurfing, downhill mountain biking, kayaking.
- Historic day trips (Silves, Seville, Lisbon) can also be booked, although a lot is already on your doorstep in Lagos. The Lagos coach and train stations are both an easy walk from apartment.
Faro airport is a 50 minutes drive (by motorway) and you can hire a taxi or a shuttle. Car hire whilst staying at our apartment is not essential as you will be within easy walking distance to the Marina, the town, and the many beaches. Lagos train station is a 5-minute walk and Lagos bus station is even nearer, a mere 2-minute walk.
50 miles from Faro and 114 miles from Lisbon. 150 miles to Seville.
There are 2 supermarkets within a few minutes walking distance of the apartment.
Bars and restaurants:
The many bars and restaurants of Lagos town (more than 350) are within easy walking distance
Lagos is widely reported as the most attractive town on the Algarve. It has avoided the worst elements of modern tourism and instead has chosen to develop its tourism with taste and class. There is a good balance between the modern Marina and associated boat, trips, fishing and dolphin spotting activities and the charm and history of the Old Portuguese town. The town center is a rambling maze of interlinking cobbled streets, with beautiful shops, restaurants, and bars but also fine old architecture and churches. At night throughout the summer there are artists and performance artists and live bands during festivals (which are frequent). The atmosphere is exciting but very safe. Lagos is particularly known for its fine and wide range of restaurants from Portuguese (obviously) to French, Italian, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Tapas, Chinese ... the list is endless and the quality excellent. But if you want to self cater there are good supermarkets within 5 minutes walk, a local fish and vegetable market and all within easy reach by foot. There is even a pull-along trolley bag in the apartment to make you feel at home.
