What to expect - Our exclusive apartment at Vila Praia Dona Ana, often nicknamed Baleia (whale) due to it's curvy shape, is located in the charming town of Lagos. It is just a short 5 minute walk from the famous Praia Dona Ana beach and a 10 minute walk to the old historic Lagos town. This three story elegant design, catches your attention with beautifully manicured gardens, and a swimming pool all nestled within a walled sunterrace. The property grounds are elevated from the road side, and surrounded by a walled and gated compound, offering considerable privacy. This is an ideal setting for a family to enjoy both the adult and kids pool in a secure environment. Our apartment is fitted with Air Conditioning and Heating. All rooms are spacious, bright and have large windows with electronic blinds.

Our Vila Dona Ana apartment offers you endless features to pamper yourself during your stay. From the balcony you can relax on our elegant garden furniture and enjoy a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean in the distance, with its wonderful blend of turquoise colours. Sip on a glass of fine port or enjoy a tasty meal as you count the variety of boats floating by. Take note of your route to Praia Dona Ana to your right, with the two palm trees down the road as your landmark. Our super spacious balcony let's you enjoy the sunshine for most of the day as you ponder dinner plans at one of the restaurants just down below.

Our clients tell us that our Dona Ana Apts are much bigger than our pictures suggest, feeling more like a spacious Villa than an apartment.

If our property is booked, we do know many other owners so we can still take your booking request
