Lagos, Algarve, Portugal
Additional Location Information
The property ticks all the right boxes with regards to location. It is situated in a little cul-de-sac, with free parking in the street, but there's no passing traffic. A car is useful if you want to discover other regions of the Algarve, but is by no means essential. Amenities in the near vicinity include the large 'Pingo Doce' supermarket just 800 metres away. The nearest cafe and restaurant (cheap and cheerful) is just 600 metres. The nearest internet cafe is approximately 750 metres away. Lagos marina is 850m away. There is live music at the marina most weekends. From the marina you can book fantastic activities such as sailing trips, trips to see the grottoes, dolphin watching trips, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, etc.
Lagos town centre is 1.5kms away (about a 15 minute walk). The town centre is very cosmopolitan with a huge choice of restaurants and many lively bars and outdoor cafes. A calendar of live entertainment goes on throughout the summer months. The historic sites in the town include the old slave market (now an art gallery), the 'golden chapel' of St. Anthony and the fort next to the old town walls guarding the entrance to the river. There is a traditional fruit and veg market every Saturday morning just across the river from the marina and the fish market in the town centre is open 6 mornings per week. There is also a large gypsy market held on the first Saturday morning of each month, near to Pingo Doce supermarket.
Meia Praia, which is a long expanse of beautiful sandy beach, with several restaurants, is just over 1km away and an easy 15-20 minute walk. Lagos town lies at one end of this beach and a picturesque lagoon lies at the other end. Local buses can take you out to some of Lagos’s other beaches that surround the ‘Ponta da Piedade’ peninsula, such as Praia da Batata, Praia do Pinhão, Praia Dona Ana and Praia do Camilo or the longer stretches of beach at Carnavial and Porto do Mós. If you enjoy walking, you can walk from the town centre along breath-taking coastal paths to all of these beaches and there are also some great walks from the property taking you down to the spectacular lagoon and the end of Meia Praia beach. Further afield, accessible by bus or car, are the popular beach resorts of Luz, Burgau and Salema, followed by the unspoilt surfing beaches of Zavial, Cordoama and Castelejo further west.
Golf: There are several excellent golf courses within a 20 minute drive of this property. Palmares, over-looking Meia Praia beach is the closest at just a 5 minute drive away. 10 minutes away, just on the other side of Lagos is the Boavista golf course. The renowned Penina course is 15 minutes away and finally, Parque da Floresta, with it's excellent facilities including the spa and tennis, is 20 minutes drive west of Lagos.
A little further afield, but within a 30 minute drive, the Western Algarve offers the autodrome racing circuit, the stunning pretty Monchique mountains (38kms away) with fantastic views from the highest point at Foia (903 metres) and the spa village of Caldas da Monchique. The westerly town of Sagres is 31kms away and Cape St. Vincent (known as 'the end of the world') is 37kms. The west coast beaches of Castelejo and Cordoama are 25kms away. There's also the excellent Slide and Splash water park to visit, Lagos zoo (great for the kids), wine tasting (great for the adults), horse riding, walking, cycling, bird watching, golf and the unspoilt beauty of the Costa Vincentina Natural Park. There really is something for everyone!
The nearest airport is at Faro, 75kms away (1 hours drive on the motorway - note: tolls apply). Car hire is not essential for this property, though it's worthwhile if you want to see more of the beautiful Algarve. Trains run from Faro centre to Lagos and it's by far the cheapest way of reaching Lagos from Faro airport. The journey takes approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes and the station in Faro is a short 10- 15 minute cab or bus ride from the airport. The apartment is a 10 minute walk from Lagos train station. Alternatively there are companies operating bus and minibus transfer services at around €15 each way (per person) or a VIP chauffeur service from €75 per car each way. Car hire can also be a great option if you’re looking for a little independence whilst here.
