Cosy Studio with Pool in LAGOS

Apartment - Entire home/apt · R. do Cerro das Mós, Lagos, Faro District 8600, Portugal

The Space

Studio to rent in Lagos (Algarve).

Cosy and full of light, the studio is on the lower floor of a villa, with independent entrance, private pool and parking facility.
The studio is ideal for one or two people. But if you come with a child there is a possibility of extra bed in the living room.

Close to supermarkets and cafes, 10 minutes' walk from marina, 15 minutes from city center, 20 minutes from beaches. Very close to bus stop, within walking distance of bus and train stations.

The studio has:
- a cosy bedroom with double bed and bathroom en suite
- spacious living room with sofa (opens into additional bed for one)
- eating area with table for four people, microwave, fridge, toaster and electric kettle
- south-facing terrace with private swimming pool
- wireless internet access. (not very strong)


Please note that the apartment does not include a kitchen. There is a fridge and microwave, plus a kettle and toaster. There are also plates, glasses and cutlery. So it's equipped for breakfast, or to warm up food, but you can't really cook your own food. That said, there are a lot of places around here where you can buy take-away cheaply and bring it back to eat at home, and the restaurants are fairly cheap by European standards.

The parking facility is not private. There is also a lot of parking space around - parking is never a problem here. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, even at night.

The bed linen and towels are included, but they are not changed every day as in a hotel. For guest staying for periods longer than 10 days there will be a weekly cleaning, change of towels and linen.

Lagos and its surroundings are a great place for holidays. You have a big choice of beaches and a stunning natural park along the West coast. Local activities include surfing, sailing, windsurf, kitesurf, bodyboard, rock climbing, golf, or just enjoying the sun and sea. Restaurants are plentiful and the night life is lively.

    Thank you

  • Would definitely recommend this apartment to a couple or to friends traveling together. The apartment was very clean and very comfortable for our short stay. Very good location, only a short walk from the center of Lagos. I didn't get to meet Sofia but I did meet her co-owner Joao who was incredibly friendly and very willing to offer his help had we needed it. Communicating with Sofia through messages was very easy and prompt. The pool is also very nice! Great value for money in my opinion.

  • A lovely studio, on a splendid location: 5 min walk from Lidl and Alid, a residential nice area, 15min walk from the center of town, very easy entrance and exit to N125 to explore the rest of Algarve; a private swimming pool, full sun, a great communicative host. To be short: like a little peace of heaven, thát's how we experiened our stay in Sofia's appartment!

  • It really is a nice and cozy place to stay, with the private pool as a little highlight. Sofia was very nice and considerate with the check-in time, especially because our plane was late.
    I would definitely recommend this place.

  • Since we missed our flight we needed quickly a place to stay. Sofias immediate and helpful response, made that adventure much less stressful. We stayed at the little poolhouse 2 nights. The appartment is sparingly equipped, but we needed nothing more than a toaster and a wather heater. Everything was perfectly clean and the free wifi access made our further planing much easier.
    Thank you Sofia!

  • - the place has two rather large rooms. There is no kitchen corner with a water point nor gas or electricity for cooking (only a micro-wave, water boiler and toaster)
    - the location is rather central - 10 to 15 minutes walking from the bus station, a good 30 minutes to the nearest beaches. It is near a major road which causes some noise.
    - the swimming pool is quite nice and got cleaned during the middle of our stay

  • My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Sofia's apartment. In my opinion it is a pool house more than an apartment but it suited our needs perfectly. You stay in 2 large rooms and a full bathrooom. The mini fridge and toaster met all of our needs.

    Sofia was responsive to all our questions and even met us around the block when we had difficulty locating the apartment. The difficulty was our misunderstanding since we drove past the apartment several times.

    The location is about a 20 minute walk from the historic center but my wife and I usually made the drive to free parking identified by Sofia.

    Met and exceeded all expectations.

  • Very nice apartment, well located and the pool is definitely a good point. Though, there is not any kitchen, just a coffee machine, a microwave and a fridge. That was absolutely not a problem for us as long as we wanted to have lunch and dinner out everyday, but it might be a problem for others.
    The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The only thing that we have been missing was a fan because it was pretty hot in Lagos when we were there. Otherwise, it was perfect!

  • We stayed in Sofia's studio in Lagos from Aug 6 - 12 and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment includes the pool that you have to yourself and is a wonderful alternative to the beaches. The walk into town is about 20minutes, but very accessible. The apartment itself takes on a minimlist approach, which is fine as you won't be spending much time there with all there is to do in Lagos. Convenience is one of the best characteristics of the apartment as their is a supermarket less than 5min walk away and as noted above, downtown/beaches/marina/restaurants are 20min walk away.

    All in all had a great stay at the apartment, the hosts were VERY responsive to anything we had questions on - which to us was very important.

    We were picked up from the train station - this is just a microcosm of how accomodating the hosts are.

    Thanks so much!!
