Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a family with 3 children. After enjoying holidays in our apartment in Lagos marina for many years we decided to stay in Portugal permanently and swapped like in the UK for life in The Algarve in 2015. We live just outside Lagos now and absolutely love living here; the constant blue skies and sunshine, the breathtaking scenery, the food, the people and the relaxed way of life is unbeatable. we still own our vacation property and this is the accommodation we have to swap.

  2. We are both self employed and work from home in Portugal.

  3. We love walking, cycling and enjoying the great outdoors in Portugal.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Set within the marina, the apartment is in a quiet and peaceful location but within easy walking distance of the town of Lagos with its fabulous range of shops and restaurants and gorgeous Meia Praia beach. Lagos is a beautiful and historic Portuguese town with lots to see and do. There is a train station and a bus station close to the marina and Faro airport is 1 hour drive away. Lisbon is around 3 hour drive away and Seville in Spain is 2.5 hour drive, both cities are fantastic and we would recommend a trip to either.

Adega de Marina over the bridge from the marina towards the old town is a traditional Portuguese restaurant serving good food at great prices. Popular with locals and tourists alike it is always busy and serves great fresh fish. Mar restaurant at the top of The Avenida offers amazing views of Lagos bay.
