Apartment in Praia da Luz Western Algarve (Ref 5333/AL) - 5 minutes walk to beach, with use of private pools and tennis courts
Praia da Luz is a one hour drive from Faro airport along the empty A22 motorway. It has a beautiful sandy beach, plenty of restaurants, a well stocked supermarket, shops, bars, bank, post office and a doctors surgery. It is ideal for family holidays with children of all ages or for adults just wanting to relax in the sun. The apartment is within the Ocean Club and is on the ground floor, having the advantage of a private secure garden, (ideal for children), while still having a sea view. There are 3 outdoor swimming pools, (one opposite the apartment) and a heated indoor pool, all exclusively available to Ocean Club guests. There are 5 tennis courts, (2 floodlit), available for hourly hire. Water sports are available on the beach and there are numerous attractions for adults and children within easy reach of the village. Praia da Luz is close to several golf courses, including Penina, Palmares, Parque da Floresta and Boavista.
About the Owner
We live in Cambridge and visit the apartment four or five times a year. We first visited Luz in 2003, and immediately fell in love with it and the apartment. We completed the purchase in 2004, carried out a major refurbishment, including the kitchen and bathrooms, and started renting in 2005. Some of our guests have come back year after year.
Guests benefit from the facilities of the Ocean Club, which include four pools; (three outdoor and one heated indoor), tennis courts, 24 hour reception and maid service. Luz is an ideal holiday location for families with children. The beach is a five minute walk from the apartment and during the summer water sports are available. There are many other beaches a short drive away.
Guestbook comments from the owner
RC from Dublin wrote: "We are back from our trip to Portugal and just wanted to say how great we found the apartment. We had a lovely holiday and the apartment contributed greatly to the experience. With two small kids it was perfect and the facilities of both the apartment and the Ocean Club were perfect for what we needed. Also may I compliment you on the good directions and tips and generally on how easy everything was to use".
AM from Bolton wrote: " Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the apartment for the last couple of weeks. This was the fourth occasion that we have used the Ocean Club facilities attached to the accommodation in Praia da Luz and we also had three groups of friends using accommodation in various parts of Luz. The location of your apartment is great being so close to all the facilities and yet we still felt that it was quite secluded looking out on the gardens. The accommodation was discussed in detail and your apartment got top prize".
