Casa Dom Duarte, Lagos Marina, Algarve

Take a five minute walk to the town centre of Lagos, amble along the bustling Marina quay side with its shops, restaurants and bars and gaze at the yachts moored at the pontoons. Crossing the “opening” Marina Bridge will take you onto the Avenida dos Descobrimentos and into the heart of the old town, where there are many more shops, bars and restaurants to choose from. The golf courses at Palmares and Boavista Golf Resort are within five to ten minutes drive and the courses at Penina to the east and Parque da Floresta Golf and Leisure Resort to the west are about 25 minutes drive away.
This stylish and modern apartment is beautifully furnished with the living/dining room having a South facing balcony enjoying views into the Palm tree garden and towards the Marina.

The bedroom has twin beds and plenty of hanging and cupboard space and there is a full bathroom equipped with bath and shower over. The apartment is air conditioned providing a comfortable environment, even in the height of the summer and heating is also available so this apartment is suitable for winter living. Satellite TV (limited channels – Sky News, BBC, ITV and Euro Sport) is available and there is a CD/DVD Player.
The apartment also includes complimentary use of the outdoor swimming pool free of charge at the Marina Club Suite Hotel just next door to the apartment. Use of the spa facilities at the club is payable locally.
There is an allocated space in the private secure underground car park and the apartment block is accessed by a keycode and videophone entry system with stairs and a lift to all floors.
The cosmopolitan town of Lagos, which many believe to be the best on the Algarve, is on your doorstep. The Marina dominates the river as it opens into the sea and you can choose activities such as deep sea fishing, a dolphin seafari trip and yacht hire. Lagos is an historic town with some city walls still standing after the earthquake of 1755 and there are several museums and churches worth a visit. This is a working Portuguese town with markets, shops and plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from. The fabulous west coast beaches, where the surfing is renowned, are only 30 minutes drive away and the Monchique hills and the historic old capital of the Algarve, Silves, is an equal distance the other way. As Casa Dom Duarte is so centrally situated, a car is not essential for your holiday enjoyment and there are good private and public transport transfer options to and from the airport at Faro but to gain an appreciation of just what the Western Algarve can offer, a car is recommended.
Please note the Swimming Pool is not open all year round and is only available for full week bookings
