Luisi Bar those on a self catering holiday are always welcomed

When you visit Artista or Luisi dont worry you’ll be back.

Lagos in the Portuguese Western Algarve is a very popular place to visit and indeed live. Splendid self catering holiday rental accommodation coupled with some excellent restaurants and hotels. Leisure time activities galore with an abundance of water sports available coupled with a number of supreme golfing venues.

I am taking this opportunity to mention one very well known popular hard working local owner of is a man simply referred to as “Luisi”. He is known as the owner of Artista Restaurant and Bar and the adjacent Luisi Bar all within a stones throw of the entrance to the famous and luxurious Lagos Tivoli Hotel. Luisi is also the proprietor of the O’ Amigos Bar at the far side of Lagos on Estr da Ponta da Piedada. If your staying in Patio do Convento on a self catering holiday in a place It’s a must to visit Artista Restaurant or Lusisi Bar. It’s a must to stay in the nearby splendid self-catering holiday rental accommodation.

There is a wide variety on the menu but my favourite has always been the great tasting Beef Stroganoff . Don’t take my word for it. Here are a few comments from tripadvisor:

– “Very nice meal good service and nice ambiance. Really nice food was great saxs on while we there was quite a few people in saying it was the sunday before xmas”

– “Quite simply the best place to go when you are in Lagos. Live entertainment every night, friendly and attentive staff, good food and a great atmosphere. We visit every time we are in Lagos.”

– “During our recent stay in Lagos, we visited O Artista every evening for a nightcap. The staff were very welcoming. They had karaoke and live singers each night. We didn’t eat out here but it was busy some evenings. Service was quick and efficient and free wifi was great. Definitely worth a visit.”

– “We stayed at the hotel across the street and after dinner we popped in for a nightcap and ended up staying for several hours listening to the live 2-person duo who were excellent. Some of us got up to dance as well so it was a very festive place. If we had stayed another night, we probably would have returned and had dinner.”

Whether you’re a local, regular visitor, or fist timer you ll always get a welcome. If Luisi is not there Nuno certainly will be. While next door you ll find Sharon or George. All the staff have excellent English and your welcome to sit have a Bica (coffee) and keep in touch with home as the WiFi is free.

O Amigo’s Bar is owned by Luis is nowadays run by Miguel one of the best in the business. The lamb chops are the business If your holidaying in Self Catering accommodation at Conomino Quinta da Atalia this bar is well worth a visit > Food served all day and all matches shown live. It is on the road to the Ponta Piedade to the lighthouse. By car you come up from town to the ball roundabout, turn left, over the next roundabout, take the 1st left turn before the open land, at the bottom of the street turn right, the Hotel Golfinho(closed) is on your left, pass a little shop on your left and the bar is about 30 meters further on your right.

Praia da Bata self catering beach location at its best

Praia da Bata self catering beach location at its best

A wonderful local beach in the great holiday town of Lagos

A self catering holiday to the Lagos is not complete without a visit to this landmark Lagos beach on the western end of the Avenida dos Descobrimentos (the main road running along the canal), look for the fortress. Beside the fortress you enter to the beach. It can be entered through the small slipway marina or continue up the road and there is a flight of steps down to the beach. It is incredible and beautiful place to sit and relax the day away. The white sandy beach and clear blue water are nestled within this wonderful Algaravian town is not isolated as its 10 minutes walk from most areas of the town but its surrounding huge buttress walls and adjacent cliffs make it seem like an intimate retreat. Continue along the beach to its western edge you ll come to Praia dos Estudantes (students beach). On our website wonderful self-catering accommodation can be found on to far from the beach.

The sheltered cove attracts thousands of visitors every year. There are little or no wave’s ideal places for the kids to swim. It is a great location for tourists to sunbath and swim in the crystal blue water. However, the beach and small nearby slipway is also very popular among kayaker and windsurfers as base to launch into the nearby ocean.

The beach Praia da Bata (Potatoe Beach) originally got its Portuguese name from a ship that ran aground in the cove. Need I say it was carrying a cargo of potatoes which in itself creates an alluring mystery that is associated with the beach and adds an extra thrill to this idyllic location.

Lagos is an ancient maritime town with more than 2000 years of history. Historically this beach which is located at the mouth of the river meeting the Atlantic Ocean has seen centuries of invading and conquering forces. Nowadays the only invaders to be seen are sea gulls tracking the small fishing craft loaded with fish for the local markets. Also the local accommodation has changed with nice hotels and hostels and excellent self-catering holiday accommodation. If you have time visit the Fortress Ponta da Bandeira, where you ll get an insight into Lagos treasured history. This beach is the setting for one of the most genuine expressions of the traditional neighborhood, the “Banho 29”, popular festival which takes place on the evening of August 29.

There are toilets on the beach as well as a small cafe which is opened during the tourist season where soft drinks beer and water is served. Also during the holiday season life guards are present on the beach it is important to obey the posted daily flags. If you’re enjoying a self-catering rental holiday we want you to be safe.
