About Pete Bevins

We are Pete and Seonaid from Birmingham, and we bought this apartment after having several holidays at the marina and falling in love with the place. It is such a relaxing location with a home from home feel to it that we never tire of, and we are confident you will love it too.

Pete Bevins purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Pete Bevins chose Telheiro

The marina location is quiet, yet with a great choice of bars and restaurants, to suit all budgets, within 5 minutes walk. The food is of great quality with superb fresh fish and fine steaks commonplace. Whilst rarely busy, the marina location with the yachts just 150 metres away means that it is always atmospheric, with owners pottering about on their yachts. There is a lake between the apartment and the marina with ducks and beautiful black swan. You may want to hire a car, but be prepared to not get value for money from it because you will probably not want to go anywhere else as the marina and the old town, which is 15 minutes walk, have everything you need. Golf courses abound and a variety of superb beaches are all around Lagos.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is fully kitted out with modern appliances and quality furnishings. The furnished patio area offers a lovely view across to the quiet pool, which is down 2 steps and then a less than challenging 15 metre walk across the grass. The supermarket is 2 minutes walk away behind the building, and offers a fully stocked with fresh produce as well as all the necessary frozen, tinned and household items, plus a pharmacy. The Condominium is very secure and secluded with access to the gardens and pool area only via the apartments themselves.

Five Stars in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the marina complex before but not at this apartment, it did not let us down. It was spotlessly clean, contemporary decor, comfortable bed and furnishings and had all the facilities we needed. We had a mini break of 4 nights and it was perfect for our needs. Fabulous location, gated secure development and the apartment overlooked the pool and gardens. Within easy walking distance of supermarkets, bars, restaurant, marina and old town Lagos and yet not too close so was quiet, though we were out of season. Looking forward to another trip for a longer stay. We had to re-book the apartment last minute due to illness and Pete was just so helpful. Dont spend time looking anywhere else - this apartment has it all. We could not fault anything.

Perfect Holiday Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this complex many times and this apartment was by far the best we have stayed in, it suited our needs perfectly.

The arrangements from start to finish were easy and the apartment was lovely, clean , well equipt and perfectly located close to the marina,the beach and the town centre. Both the train station and bus terminal are within a short walk should you wish to explore further afield.

The apartment and complex have wi-for and a full package of English TV channels.

Behind the complex is a brand new large Pingo Doce supermarket with a good selection of fresh vegetables meat and bakery products.

We loved this apartment and it will always be our first choice for future stays in Lagos.

I can only echo everything said by previous reviewers about the apartment and location- it really is fantastic, so well equipped and comfortable. Ours was a very last minute booking and Pete's response time to our request was really quick despite it being just before new year. Adrian and Tracy, who manage the property, were also fantastic, helping us to resolve a small problem on New Years' Day despite the fact that they were also away on holiday. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. We hope to visit again.

We spent two weeks in July in this beautiful apartment it was everything as described and more.It has a lovely homely feel to it and really well equipped for a lovely relaxing holiday.The apartment and complex is really safe and secure.I would highly recommend it for a couples getaway and a great holiday with children also. We had our 3 year old daughter with us and she had a fantastic holiday.The apartment is opposite a great supermarket and within close walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants and shops in the marina and the lovely town Lagos. We are looking forward to our holiday there again next year.The management company were really helpful and friendly and at the end of the phone if we needed them.

Fantastic week away

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Lagos. The apartment is exactly as described and clearly very well looked after. We found the location to be perfect, with no car everything is in waking distance... Great restaurants and bars just a stone throw away on the marina and much, much more in the old town. We used the supermarket close by on many occasions and would recommend the fish counter, which is very well stocked. The pool and garden are very well looked after, we spent most days relaxing by the pool but did venture to the beach on one day, which is a 15 minute walk away. The apartment had everything we needed, great wifi, huge selection on TV and sky channels, which were perfect for the nights we decided to stay in and cook.

I would recommend the apartment to anyone and will definitely look to return.

Thank you Pete for letting us use your wonderful home- Jess and Callum

10 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

This is the fifth time we have stayed at this particular apartment and it gets more like coming home every time. 50 minutes from Faro by taxi. We took a chance on a late holiday and the weather was superb. The apartment is on the ground floor with a terrace leading to the lovely grounds and pool. It has one huge bedroom. A remarkably comfortable large lounge tastefully furnished. A TV with all the main ITV, BBC, Ch4 &5, channels, Sky news and a few more. DVD and CD player I-pod dock and superb WiFi coverage. It has a fully fitted kitchen with everything you need, the owners obviously take a great interest in their guests needs and comfort. The bathroom has a full suit with a huge vanity unit and mirror. In the TV cabinet are loads of DVD's and CD's there is also a great selection of books The building is very secure and all the public areas are spotlessly clean. The gardens are very well maintained and peaceful with an adequate number of sunbeds. The small maintenance staff are very pleasant and friendly. A short walk to the Marina with loads of bars and cafe's to sit at and admire the jet set and their yachts. A bit further over the foot bridge takes you to the old town with every kind of bar and restaurant and shop you could wish for. A very good supermarket Pingo Doce is on the doorstep and it has a fantastic fish, meat, deli and bakery section. Just sat here in March in Yorkshire writing this makes me feel I can't wait till May when go again. Going twice this year in fact.

15 minutes walk to variety of fantastic beaches.


By road: Lagos Town is a 50-minute drive from Faro airport.

By rail: take a 7 euro taxi journey from the airport to Faro Station and catch a train to Lagos. Journey takes about an hour and a half. The station at Lagos is only on the other side of the Marina complex, and therefore only a 5 minute walk away from the apartment.

By taxi: They generally cost about 75 euros from the airport. We can arrange to have you picked up and dropped off door to door for 70 euros for four people.


Marina waterfront – 5 minutes walk away.

Lagos Town – 10 minutes walk away.

Portimao – 20 minutes drive away.

Praia de Luz – 15 minutes drive away.

Burgau – 20 minutes drive away.

Slide and splash water park – 30 minutes drive away.

Further Details:

This spacious ground floor apartment is contained within the marina complex with only a 5 minute walk to the marina's waterfront bars and restaurants. The local large supermarket is just a minutes walk from the back door. A footbridge across the river takes you from the marina to the centre of Lagos Town in only 10 minutes. There you have a wide selection of restaurants and bars to choose from as you walk around the traffic-free cobbled streets, soaking up the atmosphere provided by street entertainers or perhaps visiting the many shops.

For other activities away from town, there are plenty of sea trips on offer in the marina to visit the grottoes along the coast or sail with dolphins. A 30 minute journey will take you to the nearest water park.
