“Stunning penthouse. Will be back”

Judith (the Mrs) and I have just returned from spending a week at this fabulous penthouse apartment. We went with our two young boys who normally are very naughty on holiday usually borne out of boredom. Not so on this holiday principally due to how much there was for them to do - the large swimming pool is only yards away and there were loads of British board games and DVD's in the apartment for the children to play with/use - I've never seen them so pre-occupied/well behaved on holiday!

The apartment is large - I would guess around 1200 square feet and is really well laid out with all bedrooms having ample storage and being of a good size. Occupying the top floor and the end of the block (which in itself only consists of just 6 apartments) it is very quiet at night with none of the bedrooms backing on to neighbouring apartments.

The resort only has around 60 apartments in total which gives it a non complex feel and in our opinion this is the best apartment on the site looking out onto the swimming pool and gardens - and fantastic panoramic views of the mountains and countryside from a gigantic private roof terrace where we had our breakfast each morning. This was also where we enjoyed our meals in the evening with a proper charcoal BBQ at out disposal - a wonderful addition to the apartment.

The owners of this apartment have clearly gone that extra mile to add finishing homely touches which you wouldn't expect from a holiday let - whether that be the Nespresso coffee machine, the quality Dualit toaster, the luxury embossed towels (including beach towels), the quality bedding and throws or the plentiful supply of crockery and other nick nacks (too many to mention here).

Our children also appreciated the good selection of children's toys which they found really useful on the nearby Meia Praia beach which is 4km of golden sand which must be one of the best beaches in Europe.

Having been to the Algarve many times before, this is an excellent area to stay in - Lagos itself is a charming town which has been largely unspoilt unlike the nearby Praia de Luz or Albufeira. Whilst we had a car, the resort facilities with an excellent on site restaurant (Destinos) were such that we didn't really need one

I have many years of staying in holiday apartments (some at much higher prices than this one) and I can honestly say this apartment is exceptional. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to other potential holiday makers who appreciate quality and attention to detail.

“A wonderful trip - have returned again since and would go back again...”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The Penthouse was exactly as it is shown on the internet, beautifully furnished clean with every essential required!
The owners had left a very comprehensive guide of what to do and where to eat which proved invaluable during our stay. We used several of the recommendations, all of which I would revisit again.
The location is absolutely superb. 50 minutes from Faro airport, 10 minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes by car to the marina.
Jardim Da Mia Praia is extremely well laid out and exceptionally clean, the pool area and tennis court were used by us a lot during our stay!
We first visited the Penthouse in March and were so impressed we returned in April with our children. We will definitely be returning later in the year…
A very content traveller!

“Amazing Penthouse!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This penthouse is an amazing place to stay. It has everything you need whilst on holiday including cotton sheets, homely log fire, a full compliment of kitchen accessories, colour tv etc. The setting is superb within beautiful grounds, overlooking a swimming pool and from the large roof terrace the surrounding country scenery is wonderful and relaxing. The roof terrace has a BBQ and ample seating for those warm sultry evenings. The attention to detail within the penthouse has been carefully thought out and of an extremely high standard. We had the best holiday ever and counting the weeks until our return visit.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I have just returned from a week staying at this stunning apartment, everything has been thought of to ensure guests enjoy every minute of their holiday, right down to lovely fluffy towels and crisp white sheets.The information book gives a comprehensive and thoughtful insight into where guests should visit and eat. The rooftop terrace gives fabulous views of the hills in the distance and a glimpse of the beautiful sea - the beach is only a 10 minute stroll away - and is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy breakfast, lunch and BBQ in the evenings.
There is a lovely pool, tennis court and a great bar and restaurant called Destinos on the complex, if you are looking for a calm and peaceful environment set in a beautiful,safe - security gated - location you will not be disappointed.
