We rented Casa das Andorinhas town house for a family holiday in August 2016. The house is in great condition and retains many original features, but has been well maintained with modern bathrooms and kitchen with all the latest tech we all expect (wi-fi, Wide screen TV etc.) The house is light, bright and tastefully decorated with simple white walls and a courtyard garden that provides great outdoor space to eat or entertain, all in complete privacy.
The house itself is situated on a corner in the North end of the old town away from the busiest and loudest night life spots, but within easy walking distance of the town centre itself (5 minutes walk).
If you want to experience things that are a little cooler and bohemian in the town head towards the south of the main tourist strip (towards the Batata Beach end of town). From Casa das Andorinhas it will take you 10 minutes to walk to the best nightlife and we spent most of our time at the Batata beach with is a leisurely 15 minute stroll through the centre of town, which is a great walk to begin and end the day.
Casa das Andorinhas provides easy access to the motorways and ring roads that allow easy connection to the major roads and attraction in the area along with a number of supermarkets within a 5 minute drive or a local supermarket within a 10 minute walk. If you are driving you will need to find a place to park on the street (which can be challenging at times) but this task far outweighed the choice of renting further out of town in a more modern villa with a drive as you are in the centre of town and able to walk everywhere.
Please bear in mind that there is no Air conditioning at the house and if you are staying in the height of summer then it can get warm at night so if you want aircon and absolute peace and quiet then maybe a Villa slightly out of town would be a better choice. We enjoyed being in the heart of Lagos and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa das Andorinhas.
