About this listing
Cosy studio flat, with fabulous natural light and a huge terrace, overlooking the old town. Good for a couple (it can accommodate a small child/no extra adults). It has spleeping area with double bed and a sofa, a small kitchen, with cooker,microwave and fridge, a bathroom and a delicious terrace (28 square metres). The flat is on a 3rd floor (with lift), located in the residencial part of town (it is not a touristic complex), so you will be socializing with the locals. The total area of 60m2 is 30m2 for interior and 30m2 for the terrace. Bed linen, bath/face towels provided as well as beach towels and parasol/umbrella.
It is located 350 mtrs from beaches and 150 mtrs from the town centre. The Cultural Centre of Lagos is just round the corner, as well as the Museum and Santo António Church. There is a small grocceries shop and a German bakery, right there. You will not need a car!! But if you do have one, than there is a car park 150mtrs away. Parking in town is difficult.
There are plenty of restaurants about, shops, bars and the cinema has just reopened (films in English). Round the corner you can find a surf centre and rent a bycicle. The atmosphere in town is very friendly and easy going. In Jully and August it can be too lively and a little bit noisy at night. If you are within this holiday spirit, you'll enjoy it!
There is a train station in Lagos, with a railway that goes all the away along the Algarve region. There are also coaches, town buses and taxis. You can go for boat trips as well. There is plenty to choose from!
I think that the good thing with this studio flat is that you don't need a car. From Faro/Lisbon airport catch a train or a coach. I can pick you up from the station.
I live in a small village (Bensafrim), 9 kms away from Lagos. So guests have entire privacy in the flat. I see them whenever necessary.
€13 for one extra adult
Our stay at Dulce's flat was perfect. The flat is in the centre of the town. Very cute and clean with a beautiful balcony. She was very helpful she picked us up from the train station and gave us a quick tour of the town to help us get our bearings. She also left us some delicious cookies!! Thank you for the perfect stay in Lagos Dulce!
L'accueil de Dulce est excellent, elle est une hôte très sympathique, toujours disponible et pleine d'attentions. Elle a grandement participé à la qualité de notre séjour en nous montrant quelques adresses sur le trajet lorsqu'elle est venue nous chercher à la gare ou encore en nous initiant à la pâtisserie locale ! Merci encore pour les sweet cake !
L'appartement est tout à fait conforme à sa description. Il est très bien équipé, très fonctionnel, propre et très agréable. Il permet vraiment de se retrouver comme à la maison. La terrasse qui est grande et bien exposée est un réel plus. Un petit barbecue nous a permis de profiter des produits du Mercado municipal.
L'appartement est situé dans le centre de la ville, ce qui est très agréable car c'est un quartier animé de jour comme de nuit. L'appartement se situe aussi à proximité des plages.
Nous conseillons vivement cet appartement et remercions encore Dulce pour sa gentillesse, sa disponibilité et la grande qualité de la prestation qu'elle propose !
Sem dúvida um sítio para voltar. O prédio pode não ser o mais bonito, mas entramos em casa e já nos sentimos noutro sítio. A localização é ótima, mesmo no centro de Lagos, com muita escolha de restaurantes, e permite ir rapidamente a pé para uma praia. Há algum barulho à noite devido a bares.
A varanda é perfeita para as noites algarvias. O estúdio tem mais do que o essencial e estava impecavelmente limpo.
A Dulce está sempre disponível para acompanhar a estadia e lembrou-se de coisas importantes, como um guarda-sol, uma ventoínha e um simpático presente de boas-vindas.
Boa relação qualidade/preço. Perfeito para uma semana sem pensar em mais nada a não ser em descanso, leitura e praia.
Hyggelig lille lejlighed, som var perfekt til et par. Køkken med det meste man skal bruge og et fint badeværelse. En kæmpe stor dejlig terrasse, med sol det meste af dagen, og en fin udsigt over det meste af byen. Dulce var sød og rar, og meget hjælpsomt undervejs.
Dulce Maria was the perfect host for us. She very kindly picked us up from the train station - a lovely surprise. She is so friendly and helpful, and I loved her guided tour of the local area during the short drive from the station to the apartment.
The apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures and incredibly clean. The terrace is huge and you have the sun all day. Lagos in general (and therefore the balcony) does get quite windy, especially in the evenings, so take something warm to put on if you prefer the warmth like me.
The location was perfect for us. Lagos by day is a beautiful, historic town, and by night, it is a party place, so there is some noise until around 2-3am, but we were prepared for this and it didn't bother us. The apartment is just far enough away from the busy centre to offer peace and quiet in the day, but only a short walk to the action. The apartment doesn't have wifi, but the lovely restaurant and bar, The Garden, just around the corner offers free wifi and delicious BBQ dishes.
There are also some lovely small beaches (e.g. Praia Batata) within 10-15 mins walking distance of the apartment with very scenic cliff views, although if you want a 'spot', I'd say you'd have to get there quite early in the day. The famous Meia Praia is a good walk via the footbridge (30 mins), but the best way to access it is via the tiny ferry that operates in summer (15 mins & 60 cents). I was surprised at how much space there was on Meia Praia and how soft the sand is. The water is cold though!!
We loved our stay at this apartment. I would definitely recommend it to friends and if we revisit Lagos, we would stay there again. Thanks Dulce Maria!
Myself and my boyfriend had a wonderful stay in Dulce's flat! It is a perfect spot for a couple. She was so kind and accommodating, we absolutely loved her. The location is perfect if you want to be where the action is happening in Lagos. We would highly recommend this spot! :)
Dulce est venue nous chercher a la gare routière. Nous avons vraiment apprécié.
Dans l appartement tout était propre, accueillant.
Des spécialités ainsi qu une bouteille de vin en signe de bienvenue.
Dulce toujours disponible pendant notre séjour pour un renseignement.
Une pile de documentation, divers dictionnaires pour faciliter notre séjour.
Nous espérons revenir un jour.
Merci Dulce pour tout

About the Host, Dulce Maria
I'm a mother of 3 children (14,13, and 10) and a Portuguese/English teacher. I mostly teach Portuguese to foreigners, whilst raising the kids. I've travelled the world when I was a young girl (in my other life, before I became a mother). Travelling and meeting the world is a wonderful thing, which I highly reccommend!
