Cozy studio flat - historic centre

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Travessa do Mineiro, Lagos, Faro District 8600, Portugal

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 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, for €6.00 per day. Parking in town is difficult.

There are plenty of restaurants about, shops,bars and the cinema has just reoponed (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. You will love it!

There is a train station in Lagos, with a railaway 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Staying at this appartment in Lagos was great. It has a perfect location in a quiet side street of the Old Town, so everything to see or do in Lagos including the famous beaches, rocks and bays are in a walking distance.
    The studio is not one of the fancy modern tourist appartment types, but an actual flat which is as cozy and individual as described, plus it is reasonably priced. It has a basic equipment of everything you need to cater for yourself (oven, pots, coffee machine, fridge, dishes etc.). Everything including the bathroom and bedsheets etc. is really clean. The best part though is the great terrace. Having your breakfast there in the sun is the best way to start a day.
    Dulce is such a great host to have. Upon our arrival she welcomed us in her flat with yummie almond pastries and gave us an introduction of how to get around in Lagos. And also later, during our stay, she was always willing to provide us with recommendations or anything else in case we would have needed something to feel comfortable in her flat.
    We can really recommend the place. It is especially suitable for young couples with a smaller budget who like it modest and individual.

  • Dulce is a very thoughtfully lady and helped us with info for the train journey from Faro to Lagos. Her welcoming smiley face was waiting for us at Lagos train station late in the evening and she transported us to her apartment and spent time ensuring we were settled in and warm (it was winter). We previously requested some food items for breakfast on our behalf and this was provided with fresh eggs and oranges from her home garden. We had our first breakfast on the lovely sunny, spacious terrace. There is ample info on local facilities with maps and bus timetables. The studio was welcoming and warm. We really enjoyed our six weeks in Lagos - there is plenty to do and everything is within walking distance. The beaches are glorious. We visited during the quiet winter season and enjoyed exploring. When summer arrives it's a great destination for all round sports, the wonderful beaches, restaurants and cafes. We can highly recommend Dulce's property.

  • We stayed in Lagos for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The flat was clean, comfortable, and in a great location. No wifi, but a cafe is close by so it wasn't a problem. Dulce was very kind, met us at the bus station, gave us maps, and made sure everything was perfect. Highly recommend!

  • We spent a thoroughly enjoyable six nights at Dulce’s place in December 2013. Dulce was a pleasure to do deal with throughout, from quick responses to initial enquiries to picking us up at the train station. As others have already noted, the apartment is close to everything, has a wonderful terrace for sitting/eating outside, and is just as described. There is also a cyber-café less than two minutes away where you can check your emails over an espresso each morning. We’d gladly stay again as it was much more fun than staying in a hotel.

  • Everything was just perfect! All you need is very close - shops, bars, beaches - the flat is very bright, nice&cozy and the terrasse phantastic. Dulce was the perfect host. Before I arrived she helped me to organise my trip to Lagos and when I was there she explained many things about the city. It was always possible to call her and get help in any case. Many thanks for the great time!

  • Situated in the historic centre of Lagos this beautiful flat is in the perfect location for everything you could ask for, and all within walking distance. Dulce is a fantastic host, picking us up from the station and providing us with our bearings. During our stay she brought us freshly picked grapes and figs from her orchard. An experience you would not get with any agency or hotelier.

    The flat is gorgeous and the perfect size for a couple, or friends sharing. The balcony terrace crowns this apartment for gorgeous al fresco dining in the moonlight; and when you're done, it's a stones throw away from all and any evening's entertainment.

    I highly recommend staying here. This was the perfect introduction to a fantastic holiday and we felt at home from the get-go. So close you can wander around the town all evening and eventually saunter home to a welcoming, bright and airy apartment. If you're staying in Lagos and enjoy convenience and comfort with a personal service, you can't beat the experience here. Definitely 5 star treatment.

  • Замечательный город с достаточно большим историческим центром. Данная квартира находится в самом центре, в 10 минутах ходьбы от маленьких пляжей Лагуша.
    Dulce любезно и очень тепло встретила нас на вокзале и отвезла в квартиру, по пути проводя экспресс экскурсию по городу. Квартира нам понравилась с первого взгляда, а наличие прекрасной террасы навсегда влюбило нас в это место.
    Помимо всего необходимого в быту, нам запомнились зонтики и лежаки, которые нам очень пригодились в наших пляжных походах.
    P.S. Ребята, езжайте к Dulce в Лагуш и не за что не пожалеете о выбранном направлении и квартире.

  • We had a fantastic time at this apartment. The location is first class. The city, restaurants and bars are almost on your doorstep. There are beautiful beaches are very short walk away.
    The apartment was clean and cosy. The very large balcony was amazing.
    Dulce was a very nice host. She picked us up from the train station and gave us information and tips on how to make the most of our stay in Lagos.

I'm a mother of 3 children (12,11, and 9) 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!
