Fantastic appartment!!perfect for family's.

  • 5 of 5

My young family stayed at Julian's appartment for 8 days and it was really home from home the appartment is perfect with everything you could possibly need from massive balcony, to a huge lounge area with a pull out bed if needed . To be honnest I could not fault the owner of this appartment he actually bought a brand new cot and high chair for my 17 moth old baby to use I found the owner could not do enough to make sure our holiday was perfect. Its absolutely perfect for young family's The complex it's set in isn't to big either some can be way to big with to much going on , it's lovely and quiet with 3 pools,a sauna jacuzzi bars restaurant, plenty of places to eat and drink outside of the appartment and the people hear are very friendly . it is so clean and safe hear every gate has a key code to get back inside the grounds and security cameras everywhere . My daughter absolutely loved it hear and I will 100% be back thank you for the perfect holiday stay Julian!!!!!

Lovely place, great apartments and super services

  • 5 of 5

I will never tire of Praia da Luz, its a beautiful bay, and its so near to Lagos, a wonderful town. Estrela da Luz is near to all the best bits of Luz, plus its got superb services within the complex. The apartment was marvelous with good space and comfort, it was well maintained and clean and had a great view from the large balcony. I can highly recommend this destination for many reasons, especially if you want a relaxing holiday and want to access a beach and a swimming facility, together with closeness to shops and restaurants. Even in low season it can offer a great deal and the Hugo Beatty restaurant in the complex offers excellent service and good value food. Personally this is one of the best places not only in Portugal, but probably the most perfect restful and undemanding holiday you could find anywhere, but it may be too relaxing and restful for some. However in high season the beach does offer plenty of water sport activities for the adventurous and theres golf thats easy to access too within a few miles.

I'm bound to be going back, and at any time.

Amazing apartment...home from home luxuries !!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I are just back from a fabulous week in Estrela da Luz, we were simply blown away with this apartment it far exceeded our expectations ( we have always used Owners Direct ) so spacious, clean, tastefully furnished and the huge balcony was a very big plus and we had the sun on the balcony all day which made it very difficult to leave Complex perfect, very safe, lots of sunbeds although we did visit the beach most days as so close. I would say less than a 10 minute walk. Good Supermarket close by and the food from the Baptiste deli was simply to die for ..Many lovely restaurants, including those at the Complex itself. Could go on but actually we would suggest that you go on line and book it up for yourself..Huge Thankyou to Julian Dalby who was so helpful with the booking process, we will definately return :)

Estrela da Luz

Fantastic apartment in great location - ideal for beach and many local restaurants. The apartment was spotlessly clean and Julian was brilliant to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family.

Wonderful appartment

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Julian for a wonderful stay in your appartment. We could not have found anything better, it was close to everything, the beach, the shops and the many lovely restaurants and bars of Praia de Luz. The terrace is amazing, huge, with fab views of the pool and sea, and the whole place was immaculate on our arrival. Thanks again, we'll be back!
