The Funchal Ridge is one of the most prestigious, sought after areas in the western Algarve, situated on a hill with fantastic sea views, yet only three kilometres from both the safe, sandy beach at Praia da Luz and the historic, walled town of Lagos, once the capital of the western Algarve. Much of the Funchal Ridge is still undeveloped, flora and fauna abound and there are many possibilities for lovely walks from the property. A very quiet and secluded area.
Within a five minute drive of the Funchal Ridge are six or seven different types of beaches, some wide stretches of golden sand, some steep sided sheltered grottoes, some busy and some deserted, but all very beautiful. Superb sports facilities nearby include various water-sports, horse riding and four excellent golf courses.
TOWN OF LAGOS--- The historic, walled town of Lagos was once the capital of the western Algarve. It has a wide choice of shops, bars and restaurants and good night clubs. There is a fascinating daily fish market and a weekly tourist market in high season and the town has a cosmopolitan atmosphere with paved pedestrian areas and wide avenues. There is a fabulous marina, filled with opulent yachts, and with some excellent bars and restaurants overlooking the water. Dolphin watching trips are also available from the marina. The golden sands of Meia Praia beach stretch right around the bay of Lagos and the small, sandy coves and grottoes around the Ponta da Piedade provide secluded and sheltered sunbathing. There are superb sports facilities at or near Lagos including scuba diving, dive instruction, water-skiing, windsurfing microlite and golf.
