Just back from a totally relaxing holiday in the Jardim da Meia Praia complex. We stayed in apartment - 207 Burgau. Jardim da Meia Praia is a gated community of about 60 apartments set in beautiful landscaped gardens, just outside the lovely old town of Lagos. It is approximately a 45 minutes’ drive from Faro Airport (you can also get a bus or train from Faro to Lagos). The apartment is an immaculate 4 Star, 3 bedroom property with large private roof terrace complete with Jacuzzi, sun loungers, dining table and chairs plus BBQ. It was wonderful sitting in the Jacuzzi with a glass of champagne looking over the roof tops in the sun – real luxury! I booked directly with the owner and can provide details if necessary.
Apartment - 207 Burgau has 3 large bedrooms – king-size bed in the main bedroom together with an en-suite bathroom, twin single beds in the other 2 bedrooms (so can sleep 6 very comfortably) and separate bathroom. Large living room with 2 sofas and 2 arm chairs plus dining room table all leading out to large balcony which has tables and chairs. It is ideal for all types of groups/families – its large enough not to be on top of one another. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the furnishings looked new and high end.
The kitchen has everything you may need cooker, microwave, fridge / freezer, washing machine / dryer, dish washer, kettle, plus all dining and cooking equipment and utensils.
Bathroom towels, toiletries and bed linen are included on arrival – we had additional maid service which is optional.
Large swimming pool (again spotlessly clean), with separate kiddies paddling pool, children's play area, Destino's bar/restaurant (which is excellent value and the food is lovely). There is also pool side games and internet /wifi in the restaurant. I was told that in the next few months Wifi will also be available in the apartment.
The complex is approximately 15 minutes’ stroll to the beach of Meia Praia (which is gorgeous – we walked all the way from the apartment to the beach and on to Lagos – well worth doing), stopping off at a few beach cafes spaced nicely along the length of the beach. Gaivota Branca is a particularly lovely bar/restaurant/café with beautiful views. I don’t play golf but there are a number of golf courses in the area (Palmares golf course is also just a short drive away). The marina of Lagos is about 20 min walk away – we took a brilliant boat trip from there ($10 per head for a 90 min trip), there are a number of bars/restaurants in this area plus many more in Lagos itself. Lagos is a lovely old town – definitely worth a visit, plus too is the town of Luz (about 15 min drive away).
