At night, the immediate surroundings are rather quiet but during the high season i can be loud sometimes because the house is located in the center of the City.
Within walking distance, there is the Lagos beach (about 10-15 minutes), the old city district (about 5 minutes), pubs & bars (about 5 minutes), as well as various little stores, coffee places, and restaurants.

If you are interested in surfing or golf there are a few possibilities to be part of a surfing lesson or golf lessons.
Local golf courses are near by Lagos
Also Lagos gives you the opportunity to rent some bicycles.

In order to explore the surrounding little towns, one can either use a taxi service (about 5-10 minutes away) or book a bus. The Lagos bus terminal is about 15 minutes walking distance from the apartment.

The nearest airport is in Faro (about 90km). You can reach Lagos by Bus, Train, Taxi or you can rent a car.
We would recommend you to rent a car, but by using the highway you have to pay the highway toll.
If you don´t want to pay the toll there is the opportunity to take the N125 direction Portimão.

  • Lovely place. Very airy and in the best part of the old town. 10 minute walk to the beautiful beaches. Highly recommend!!!

  • The apartment is spacious and very central. However, it's located next to a bar, which makes it noisy at night...

  • We had a lovely stay at Christian's apartment. The location was great and right in the center of everything there's to do in Lagos. Our only problem was that one of the rooms was extremely noisy because it was on top of a bar. While you hear the seagulls, they are not as big a deal as people have made them out to be in previous reviews. We were both able to get a great nights sleep despite the seagulls. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Lagos. You will not be disappointed!

  • It´s comfortable and spacious apartment just in the city centre where we have spent five nights. We have had a good time in Lagos. Christian is a very good host so we hope we will be back to Lagos next summer.

  • Great location just in the very heart of Lagos. In walking distance from the beach, around 10-15 minutes and very close to bars and restaurants. The only thing that we didn't like is a seagulls noise! Sometimes we even couldn't fall asleep, but I think it's a general problem of all sea towns. This apartment is a perfect chose for families and just for friends as we came. The service was great and would like to thank Christian for everything!

  • We had a lovely time in lagos and the apartment was good but there are significant draw backs. if you want to have good sleep i would say pronably go somewhere less central. to call this a quiet surrounding area on the page is a bit odd.
    Also I had a bit of a run in with the host which was handled in a strange way. There were 4 of us instead of the 2 I had indicated on the booking - it was a last minute decision by two of my friends getting leave from their jobs . I forgot to tell Christian - on the advert it says it is an entire appartment - So I didn't think it would matter. The housekeeper told Christian, who threatened to keep the deposit , and whose daughter phoned me and was trying to get me to offer her money for her expense of time dealing with the situation. It was all a bit farcical and unpleasant.

    Useful information
    Good
    1) appartment is very big and well equipt- with beech parasol/ bat and ball etc / all cooking things you might need.
    2) very clean
    3) roof terrace is great (shared but no one else used it ) we had dinner Up there most nights )
    4)close (15 m walk ) from the small beech

    Bad
    4) it is not quiet in the surrounding areas . Maybe just in high season but the adjacent square is very loud - the sound travels into the bedroom on the street making it impossible to sleep/ people were out singing and talking loudly in the street on two nights til ;-4am making it impossible to sleep . The other bedroom gets the brunt of the seagull noises at dawn - which are RIDICULOUS rebounding through the courtyard and literally waking you up at 5 am. (Earplugs not sufficient)
    5) it is very hot in the appartment and there is only one fan in the whole place ( which we were sharing between us- one night one room - the next night the next room. Having the windows open makes the heat slightly better but the noise a lot worse!!!

  • Wow!! Superb appartment in the heart of the most active part of the city. There is everything you need at walking distance and the beaches are beatiful. The spac einside is also very well organized and nicely decorated. The seagil did make some sound but it wasn't as crazy as said in previous comments. Ear plugs are recommended though because there is the seagulls and a bar next door. Non the less, we were there for 5 nights with 2 kids and everything went well.

  • We spent two weeks in this lovely apartment in the heart of Lagos. Perfect location, great facilities. Highly recommended.

  • The apartment is huge, with spacious bedrooms and a very large sitting room. Everything is quite modern and done up nicely. You can see that the building has literally just been given a facelift. The location is also great - right in the centre of Lagos, but at the same time the building is kind of hidden away in a little side alley and has a private feel. There was free internet access which was quite fast.

    The only negative during our stay was the birds - lots of sea gulls would fly onto the roof every night and make terrible amounts of noise. Good for us we had the apartment to ourselves and could choose the bedroom facing onto the street and away from the courtyard where the birds used to congregate. If we had to stay in the bedroom facing onto the courtyard I'd say the birds would have driven us mad!

    Another small thing was the broken TV and no washing machine, but we could use the downstairs laundry so it was OK.

    All in all it's a great apartment, but the birds can be a serious hassle at night. But then, maybe the seagulls are the same in all the other houses around Lagos...

  • A great apartment, the location is wonderful and the bedrooms are at the back so you hear no noise from the square. There is no balcony or terrace so we took our breakfast & coffees out to enjoy in the square. This is a good place to base yourself for a holiday in Lagos! - highly recommended
