HOLIDAY RENTAL IN LAGOS AND THE ALGARVE
NATURE THAT INSPIRES. PEOPLE THAT WELCOME YOU IN WITH OPEN ARMS.
Picture the sea, light, and beaches flanked by steep cliffs and landscapes that take one’s breath away. Think of incomparable wild beauty, the smooth breeze that brings with it stories that fill us with awe, and the pleasure of experiencing rich, exceptionally varied cuisine. You’re picturing Lagos.
A gem perched on the dramatic cliffs of the western Algarve, the cobbled streets of the city of Lagos take visitors on an authentic journey of discovery through its strong fishing heritage. However, what was once an ancient walled city has since grown and changed with the times, with a newfound modernity added in the shape of the LUX MARE luxury villas.
Today, Lagos is a destination of excellence, not only due to its picturesque streets but mainly due to the extraordinary natural landscapes and striking Atlantic beaches. LUX MARE could only have been born here.
WORLD CLASS BEACHES
Lagos is certainly worth exploring, and you’ll find no better base from which to adventure than the LUX MARE luxury Lagos villas. Mere steps from some of Lagos’ most striking sceneries, best-loved cliffs, and caves, including Ponta da Piedade, LUX MARE is perfectly poised as a retreat in the midst of it all. Hard-to-access Canavial Beach can be found directly below LUX MARE, at the bottom of the steep cliff, while popular Camilo Beach is only a short walk away, making LUX MARE the perfect natural playground for your Algarve holiday.
A PREMIUM RANGE OF WATERSPORTS
Lagos is known for its connection to water, and for those seeking to relax or enjoy an adventure in the Atlantic Ocean during their Algarve holiday rental, there are options aplenty.
Dolphin and whale-watching boats regularly leave Lagos Marina, while tours of the countless caves, including Ponta da Piedade, are also in high demand. Kayaks and SUP provide a slower-paced introduction to our coast, while the rugged west coast of the Algarve has long been long dubbed a surfer’s paradise. For those seeking more adventure, water jetpacks and other adventure water sports can be found in the locale.
LAGOS, THE TOWN WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED
A short drive or stunning thirty-minute walk along dramatic cliffs and inviting beaches will bring you to Lagos. A white-washed town of picturesque, cobbled streets, open-air dining, and historical monuments.
Be greeted by the Castelo dos Governadores with its baroque watchtowers before entering the remains of the old town walls, where delightful streets offer numerous restaurants, bars, and local boutique stores. Visit the cultural centre to learn more about the seafaring past of the town, admire the intricate 18th-century Santo António church, or simply relax on the long stretches of golden beaches or amongst the luxury yachts of the Marina for a glass of local wine.
YEAR-ROUND GOLFERS’ PARADISE
The Algarve’s reputation as a golfers’ paradise has been firmly cemented over the years, and at LUX MARE Luxury Villas, you are moments away from one of the many courses offered across the region.
The renowned Boavista golf course is less than ten minutes from LUX MARE, with further courses just slightly further afield. The LUX MARE concierge service can arrange tee times and green fees either in advance of your arrival or once you are already relaxing on our beautiful coastline. Across the street from LUX MARE is Cascade, where you’ll find a 320-metre long double-ended driving range, 110-yards of short game and a putting green with a sea view.
Our concierge can also help you hire any golf equipment you may need during your stay.
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES ON TAP
The Algarve may be famed for its beaches, but with mountains and nature parks just a short nod inland, adventure activities aplenty can be enjoyed during your holiday to Lagos.
Bicycle and mountain bike hire are just two of the services the LUX MARE concierge can arrange for your group, alongside other options such as go-karting, horse-riding, or recommending family-friendly hiking routes. For those seeking extreme adrenaline, the nearby aerodrome offers skydiving.
WELLNESS FOR THE SOUL
The sea has long been considered a cure for our ailments, but the Algarve is fast becoming known for its wellness-focused activities.
LUX MARE is proud to offer all guests access to the AXN Cascade Gym, which is across the street from both our villas – part of the 5* Cascade Wellness & Lifestyle Resort.
In addition to this, our concierge can also arrange personal trainers, yoga instructors and massage services, either to visit the villa or in the local area.
A FEAST OF DELICACIES
Culinary tradition is strongly connected to the soul of the Algarve, from the delicious Pastel de Nata, now famous around the world, to our love of fresh Sardines. In Lagos and the area surrounding the villa, you’ll find an abundance of high-end, locally run establishments boasting menus that celebrate the fresh fish our coastline is famed for.
With ten Michelin stars scattered across the Algarve, many restaurants are just waiting to be booked, elevating the refinement of your holiday. Both LUX MARE luxury villas are also fitted with BBQs and fully integrated kitchens, and our concierge can arrange for our private chef or outside caterers to bring an exclusive dining concept right into your holiday home.
Portugal is, of course, also renowned for its wine production, and the Algarve is no exception. Many wineries can be visited or toured in the Algarve, and samplings are always generous. Alternatively, we can arrange a bespoke wine sampling experience just for you on your private terrace at LUX MARE.
FOR LITTLE (AND BIG) KIDS
There are a number of waterparks and other children-friendly attractions across the Algarve. Sand City, constructed entirely of sand, is always a popular side trip alongside crazy golf.
DESIGNER TO BOUTIQUE SHOPPING
Lagos is home to a collection of international stores and local boutiques, but the Algarve is also blossoming in terms of its luxury fashion and accessories as new retail centres and shopping centres open across the region. Our concierge can advise you on the best shopping destinations depending on the type of retail therapy you seek.
