We live in the UK. We have had the good fortune to be able to enjoy many holidays, Lagos in particular my husband and I are both from very large families so the apartment will be greatly utilised! We both enjoy many sports, my husband Golf, hence purchasing an apartment in the Algarve, whilst our son loves the water. Myself I enjoy the sun, sea, sand and sangria!
Jacky purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Jacky chose Lagos
I first visited Lagos some 25 years ago. Lagos was only a fraction of the size it is today. I fell in love with the quaint little town and marina. It was very relaxing and held a special charm. Having now been married for a number of years and having a family of our own we have visited the Algarve on numerous occaisons staying at different resorts. It is only in recent years that my husband, family and in-laws started to visit the town. The apartment is so conveniently placed that a car is not needed as everything is within 10-15 minutes walking distance. The complex is clean, well maintained and secure. The area is safe, friendly and holds a special magic.
What makes this Apartment unique
We enjoy the benefits of not having to rush around being stressed that everyday life brings. Sitting on the balcony, sipping the odd glass of wine and starring out over the views where you can lose yourselves for the odd hour or so. The pace of life is so much more relaxing and all amenities are so close by that the apartment is like "home from home". The apartment has the use of a large shared pool which when it gets a little too hot you can indulge in or alternatively the beaches are within walking distance. On the other hand you can always stroll around the Marina and stop off for a quick earned drink before retiring back to the apartment.

Our wonderful stay in Lagos
We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing week at Jacky's apartment in Lagos.
It really is a lovely apartment, very spacious and clean and in a fantastic location, 5 minute walk from the Marina and all the action in Lagos town.
We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony and having an evening BBQ.
Everything was all so easy and handy - lots of supermarkets within walking distance and some great beaches. We would highly recommend a stay at this lovely apartment!
Thank you for your feedback. We do try to ensure guests have a stress free relaxing holiday. Hope to welcome you back in the future.
Great stay in Lagos
Terrific apartment in great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay in this apartment and would highly recommend. It is spacious and clean, with a nice view from the balcony. Kids enjoyed the large pool. Loved the electric shutters that kept the bedrooms extremely dark in the mornings, and good AC, with separate controls for the bedrooms. Convenient to marina and town, and just a 5min walk to the grocery store. The owner communicated well, and seemed concerned that we have a good experience. We did have some difficulty locating the unit as the supplied address didn’t resolve on any of our phone based maps, or the car’s GPS. Recommend doing homework ahead of time to locate the complex.
Thank you for the information and pleased you had a good time in Lagos. Will look into finding a precise postcode that will bring you directly to the complex. The problem being that the complex block corners two streets hence sometimes a bit of confusion. Thank you for pointing this out.
