Lagos is an historical town on the Algarve founded in 1364 with walls protecting the old town dating from the 16th century. It was the capital of the Algarve between 1404 and 1755 and now is the regions 3rd largest city. A fortress dating back to the 17th century houses an exhibition of the Portuguese Discoveries. The slave market, the oldest in Portugal is now used as an art gallery.
Today Lagos is a prosperous, lively town offering something to all age groups. The old town is a warren of cobbled streets hosting a variety of restaurants, cafés and bars specialising in international cuisine and traditional fish dishes.
A working harbour sees local fishermen emptying their catch daily, whilst the picturesque marina is a popular mooring for yachts and pleasure craft.
Situated on the top floor of a three storey block the apartment has its own residents’ swimming pool. It has the advantage of being away from the bustle of Lagos town centre but within walking distance (10 minutes to the marina and another 5 to the town centre).
It has a twin bedroom, open plan kitchen and lounge. The kitchen has a 4-ring hob, oven, microwave, toaster and washing machine. There is a family sized bathroom. The lounge has a sofa (which converts into two more single beds) and a table to seat four. A TV, DVD and CD player are also available. Both the lounge and bedroom have patio doors which open onto the balcony offering views over the swimming pool and across Lagos.
There is ample car parking space in front of the building.
