    About the area

    The lovely promenade which leads down to the sandy Praia da Luz beach is just a 5 minute walk. Sheltered by stunning sandstone cliffs, fringed by rock pools and offering a range of water sports, the large beach is ideal for families, with numerous beachside cafés, restaurants and bars.

    Estrela da Luz is well served by Golf courses, where guests are offered preferential rates. The easiest to reach is Boavista which you will pass on the way to the resort, being only a five-minute car journey from the apartment, also serviced by the resort shuttle bus. The Palmares and Parque da Floresta courses are 15 – 20 mins away.

    Special Interest Holidays
    Golfing packages and beauty/therapy breaks can be arranged.

    How to get there
    There are direct flights from most UK regional and major airports to Faro International (flying time from 2½ to 3 hours). Faro airport is approximately a 50 minute motorway drive from Luz. A train service also operates from Faro to Lagos. You can arrange a hire car from the airport, or in Luz. Alternatively, transfers can be arranged if you prefer, and with local buses and taxis available in Luz centre, you need not hire a car for this holiday.

    Estrela da Luz is close to the centre of the delightful village of Praia da Luz; the large beach, local supermarkets and range of shops, cafés and restaurants are all within a 5-10 mins walk from the apartment.
    Luz itself is a gateway to the less populated village resorts and beaches of the western Algarve. 6km east is the town of Lagos, with its 7 mile Meia Praia and beautiful Dona Ana beaches and marina, together with a wide range of shops, restaurants and bars.

    Further Details
    In additional to all the expected holiday resort facilities, Praia da Luz also has several banks and English-speaking medical practices. Inland are the mountains of Monchique and to the west, Sagres and Cape St. Vincent, the most south-western points of mainland Europe. The beach villages of Burgau and Salema are within easy distance of the apartment, as are family attractions such as Zoo Marine, water parks, crazy golf and Lagos Zoo. Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, is about a 3 hour car journey.
