Just spent 10 days here with our 2 children. The apartment is spacious and modern and thoroughly kitted out with everything you could need! It’s well placed for a walk into Lagos town, the beach and the (massive!) supermarket and also has its own lovely private terrace. We thought we were taking a gamble with the weather but it was...

A perfect, enjoyable & relaxing week in the sun. The Apartment had everything we required and the many restaurants in the old town of Lagos & the nearby beach provided sumptuous food & drink. We can recommend the Car Hire Company "Drive4Fun" too. We'll be back! H&E&J

From start to finish Jan and Nick made the booking and arrival process as easy as they possibly could, always being very helpful and prompt in their responses. Although we had visited Portugal before...
