Perfect Family Holidays

  • 5 of 5

Michelle is a terrific host! She's really nice to talk to and very responsive to our messages. And her place... It's so much better than pictures show, especially once you realize that everything's been beautifully customized. We highly recommend this place and we'll be sure to be back. Thanks Michelle for a wonderful time in your apartment!

Lovely, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from Luz, staying in this lovely apartment. It is large , well fitted out with lots of storage space, it's also well equipped including washing machine and dishwasher. The air conditioning is a must in the height of summer. The complex itself is well maintained with a lovely pool and garden area. It is well situated with a few close bars and restaurants nearby. The main area of Luz is just a few minutes walk away where there are more bars and restaurants and a couple of well stocked supermarkets. The main beach is 5-10 minute walk away.

This was our first time using Owners Direct and we found it was a good experience, Michelle the owner was really helpful and when we had questions or queries she responded really quickly.

I would recommend this apartment we had a fabulous holiday there in Luz.

Nearest Beach
200 Metres


The wide sandy beach of Praia da Luz is approx. 400 metres away, a 5-10 minute stroll. Luz beach has achieved blue flag status and has handicap facilities. The beach also offers shops, cafes and toilets. A variety of watersports are available during the summer season. There are also a number of fine beaches in the surrounding areas for you to explore.


Faro airport is 90km away from Luz, only a 45 minute drive along the A22. We are happy to advise on transfers from the airport to resort - please contact us for details. Hiring a car is not necessary in Luz as the beach, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance. However, should you wish to explore the Algarve we will be happy to recommend car hire companies.


The harbour town of Lagos is 5km away and there are many shops and restaurants. For the more adventurous take a trip to watch the dolphins, or a boat trip from the marina. For children, the nearest waterpark (slide & splash) is at Lagoa which is a 30 minute drive away. Information on a whole host of activities and excursions are available in the apartment information book.

Further Details:

Our apartment managers Norma and Paul will be the main point of contact during your stay. They live in Lagos which is only 15 minutes from St James so you can be assured that should you require any assistance help is close at hand.
