5 star self catering apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were travelling as a group of girls to a friends wedding (we were the bridesmaids) and spent 5 nights here.

The apartment itself was very impressive, very clean and lovely modern decoration. It had everything you need with plenty of storage space in the bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen....even champagne flutes that we used on the morning of the wedding!

The pool was also very clean and well maintained, we did have this to ourselves most of the time which made it even better.

Santa Luzia is a beautiful little village with everything you need for a quiet get away with friends or family. The local bars and restaurants serve traditional Portuguese food and the most amazing gin (Bruno's) and everyone is so friendly.

I would definitely recommend both apartment Elise and Santa Luzia to anyone.

From the Owner

We visited the Algarve in February and May to search for a holiday home and fell in love with Santa Luzia, it is so unspoilt and tranquil, we love wildlife, particularly bird watching, so the location is ideal.

From the Owner

Our apartment is new, in a peaceful spot but not far from local attractions (aka bars and restaurants). The build is top quality it has a large pool and bbq's for guests to use. The bar on the opposite corner sells bread, croissants etc and is very handy for a nightcap on the way back to the apartment. All areas of Santa Luzia are accessible on foot, so no need to take the car out of the underground car park!
