excellent family holiday

  • 5 of 5

had an excellent holiday with our 3 and 6 year old boys. our second visit to Luz, we love this resort. did day trip to lagos and lagos zoo. the apartment is clean and comfortable. the welcome pack of food was much appreciated. the bathrooms well stocked with toiletries and always hot water. I love owner directs as the apartment had bucket spades beach umbrella all the things you need for your holiday. Dave was easy to deal with for our booking. the apartment is split level with the master room upstairs you may need a stairgate if you have smallies. the childrens pool was fab and they spent all week in it. the indoor heated pool is great to have but its very deep so kids will need floatation vests. overall a lovely family holiday.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment is modern and spacious and well stocked with all the essentials and the layout worked perfectly for a family of 4. The resort, amenities, and overall location are very nice. Owner was a pleasure to deal with.

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.


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.
