The space

The apartment, on the top floor of our lovely traditional Portuguese townhouse (please also check our other listing – perfect if you want to come with 2 families) is situated in a quiet, car-free street in the middle of colourful, historical and vibrant Lagos. Just a few minutes walk from local restaurants, beaches and bars, you can enjoy the sun and the Portugese way of life with all the amenities of the city on the corner. The house lies within the old city walls close to the fort, museum, slave market and the landmark of Lagos: Praça do Infante Dom Henrique.

The house was completely renovated in 2009. The apartment has its own entrance (we live downstairs), two bedrooms, a spacious kitchen with double doors to an always sunny balcony, living room and bathroom. A recent addition is a fabulous rooftop terrace overlooking the historical church and museum and a view of Meia Praia beach in the background. Perfect for breakfast or sundowners!

The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern amenities (electric cooker, microwave, oven and large fridge, washing machine) with every cooking utensil available to cook great fresh fish from the nearby market!
The living area is on the street side with TV.
There are two spacious bedrooms. The first with a double bed and the second with two single beds, which is situated under the roof on the second level of the apartment, and with access to the roof terrace.

There is wireless internet throughout the apartment and there is a safe available for use.

This summer our own house is also available for rent at times, if you would be interested in renting both places, for example with 2 families, let us know. You will then also have access to our lovely little garden.

The house is within walking distance from the bus and train stations of Lagos, the boulevard and the marina of Lagos. There is no parking at the house but close by -within a 5 min walk - you can find both free and paid parking.

Lagos’ beaches are perfect for (kite)surfing and there’s plenty to do in the town both day and night but also the surroundings are worth discovering! We're only 30kms away from the most south western point of Europe and to the beautiful, rugged, west coast. Ten minutes away from the coast you'll find that there's a whole different Algarve to discover.

Please note that an additonal charge (for the 3rd and 4th guest) applies when staying with more than 2 people except young children.

Loved our stay here. Our favourite air BnB experience! Just needs air con and it would be phenomenal. Amazing location, close to all beaches, would definitely stay here again.

The house is on a quiet street just a couple of minutes away from the centre of Lagos, with easy access to all you need, shops, stores, restaurants and bars. The rooftop terrace is amazing, with great views of the harbor. Christina was a great host, giving us all the info we needed, making our stay a very pleasant one, we felt like we were in a home away from home. The suggestions for restaurants and places to visit were really top notch, where locals go to enjoy the Lagos atmosphere. Great find overall and looking forward to go back!

It was just great after all these years going to Lagos to find a beautiful spacious apartment in an old town house within a stone's throw of everything in the centre of the old town. The apartment is everything promised and more. It is beautifully restored with two great balconies and everything you would need in there. You can get to the main Meia Praia beach in a 10 minute walk (including a two minute, 60c ferry!!). Also other Lagos beaches easily walkable. Gerry and Christina were very kind and helpful to us and had left a very good orientation note there. Such a great place we will definitely be return visitors if they'll have us. Parking slightly problematic if you have a car but there are 2 alternative free parking locations about 7 mins walk from the apartment which is on a pedestrian street. That worked grand for us. Thanks for a great apartment, great location and great hosts.

We enjoyed our time in Lagos. The apartment is in the perfect location. Close to all restaurants and shopping but on a relatively quiet street. The top balcony was the perfect spot for a glass of wine in the evening. Christina and Gerry are wonderful hosts and helpful with recommendations on local restaurants and activities.

Christina and Gerry were excellent hosts! The apartment is in a perfect location - easily walkable to several different beaches as well as restaurants, shops, etc in town - and they're recommendations were very helpful. The unit is very spacious with a nice kitchen and lovely outdoor patio. Would highly recommend this spot!

It was a quaint little apartment on a lovely street that felt both local and part of the buzzing tourist area. It didnt have air conditioning though, so on those hot nights, we (who are spoiled by American amenities) struggles a bit. But the patios (two different spots in the house) and access to the hot areas made the apartment totally worth it!

Hi there!

We're Gerry (Irish) and Christina (Dutch). We packed up our former lives in Amsterdam in 2009 and via Cape Town, Saba, Suriname, Madagascar and Australia ended up in the most south western corner of Europe, in Lagos, where we have been living for almost 5 years now. We still love travelling and exploring the world and have just returned again from a trip through southern Africa. There are so many places in the world we love and Portugal is one of them! It is a truly beautiful country.

We really enjoy meeting nice people, music, arts, good food and wine. We're looking forward to introducing you to sunny Lagos-
Welcome, Bem vindo!
