Luxury First Floor Apartment with Sea View



Updated: 16-Aug-2016
Apartment in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - Access To 4 Pools, Tennis, 10 Minute Walk To Beach, Walking Distance To Local Restaurants.

Would you like a relaxing and stress free holiday?

How about waking up to the stunning views over the Atlantic and breakfast on the balcony with freshly baked local bread? Then contemplate as to which of the 5 pools you may wish to cool off in following a round of golf, a game of tennis or even a coastal stroll. Or the call of the beach may be stronger - then to choose again whether to stay local on the popular beach at Luz or venture to the big breakers on the Costa Vincentina near Sagres. Return in the evening freshen up in one of the 2 bathrooms with an invigorating shower then choose again - which restaurant? - intimate Luz or historic Lagos or anywhere in between? There may be a lot of choices but you will rarely make a poor one. A fortnight in this idyllic part of Portugal will seem to go very quickly - but then another choice - when can we go back and do it all again? Only 55-60 mins from Faro airport - dual carriageway all the way.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been to Luz 5 times now and your accomodation is by far one of the best.

Apartment is centrally located, well equipped and airy and of course has a wonderful sea view. The apartment will certainly be recommended to our friends and family.

We've had one of the most relaxed, fantastic holiday (even with 3 kids) here at Praia da Luz. This has been by far the most pleasant resort we have stayed in in Portugal. No need to even travel outside Luz as everything as it has it all here and all within close proximity. We loved the apartment-it was very comfortable for 5 of us-very bright and airy-couldn't have asked for anything more. Hope to return here soon.

The apartment is ideal for a family with a great view from the balcony.

Praia da Luz is a lovely place to relax and not at all commercialized. The apartment was very clean with regular maid service. We will definitely recommend your apartment to our friends and family.

A very relaxing holiday for both adults and kids. Fab!

We Loved This Place!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was a wonderful experience for our whole family. The big teenage took the living room cot, his sister and his mom the back bedroom, and Grandma and Grandpa (us!) had the big bedroom with bathroom and a big patio. The kitchen was cute, but unused because of all the wonderful nearby restaurants.

Our family argues over which homeaway house we liked the best, but this one come pretty close - mainly because of the relaxing patio, proximity to the beach, washing machine and overall relaxing atmosphere. It didn't hurt that we were there during the European Cup (which PORTUGAL won!!!)! We watched two games at a local restaurant that appears to be the traveler hangout for Luz.

Overall, this home was a great place to stay, and we will try to book it again when we return.

We keep coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We first visited Luz over twelve years ago and immediately fell in love with the place, the people, the Ocean Club facilities and, most importantly for us, the peace and quiet. After a few years, we thought we should broaden our horizons a little by trying other countries, but we always felt a little disappointed when comparing any other holiday to Luz.

We've even tried other accommodation in Luz, but again, the experience, while okay, was never on a par with Ocean Club, or more specifically, this apartment. In my view, it's one of the best (and we've been in many, believe me). Set back a little from the main complex and a little further up the hill (don't panic, it's only a two minute walk to the pool and a five minute walk to the beach...and that's going at my leisurely holiday pace), the place has an amazing view of the sea and Luz itself, while also being an extremely quiet and peaceful bolthole after a stressful day of cocktails and loungers by the pool :)

Perfect for families with young children that may worry about their little ones getting a good night's sleep, but also older families or groups that (like us) just love to hear nothing else but the sound of crickets while enjoying a glass of wine in the moonlight on the extensive balcony.

Inside, the apartment is extremely clean and well appointed with modern furniture, fixtures and fittings that are sympathetic to the beautiful Portuguese surroundings. I cannot recommend this place enough, you really will not regret it. In fact, we're going back again this year!

Relaxed Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Very central location to both pool facilities, tennis courts and supermarket. Easy walk down to the main beach and numerous restaurants, ranging from beach front cafes to high quality restaurants. VERY good place for excellent food.

The property was immaculately clean and stocked and maintained to a very high standard. The owners have put considerable thought into what one needs to ensure a really positive and hastle free holiday experience. Any questions or queries are dealt with by the Ocean Club reception team who are always polite, friendly and helpful.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property for a chilled out family holiday with more than a touch of luxury thrown in!

With regard to activities in the immediate vacinity, there are boat trips to go dolphin watching which I would highly recommend. Also kayaking, sailing, snorkeling or simply lying on the beech, catching some sun. Further afield there are trips to Zoomarine where you can book to swim with dolphins. This is quite expensive but a magical experience. There is also a large water park nearby called Slide and Splash which is also great fun. Use plenty of sunscreen and wear a rash vest as potential to burn is high unless you are careful. The nearby city of Lagos is definitely worth a visit. Very colourful and buzzing with activity with a multitude of quality restaurants to suit any budget. Lagos and Luz are both very kid friendly during the day, which goes without saying, and equally so in the evening so going out at night as a family is not an issue at all, even with young kids.

We all had a fantastic time in Luz and will definitely be back again.

Brilliant fun!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the bedroom was fantastic, when you went out on to the balcony you could see a lovely mountain which was great for a day out walking and it also really complimented the surroundings.

The beach...where to start? The crystal waves meeting the azure sky and spraying against the perfetly shaped rocks is the view you'll get as you walk across the key and down on to the hot sand ( wear flip flops as the sand can get quite warm!) you can hire a boat and guide to go dolphin watching which is great fun espescially when you stop off at little private beaches and jump off the boat into the refreshing crystal ocean.

There are many attractions and water parks near the appartment which only takes a short bus ride to get to. Zoomarine along with slide & splash are particually good choices.

A night out in Lagos is brilliant you get a warm sense of friendliness from the locals. A brill restuarant in Lagos is: Adega da Marina, you can eat many cultural Portugese foods which tastes fantastic. There is also many shops to choose from to add to your European city experience.

Aswell as many great places to eat in Lagos there is also loads of restuarants a walking distance from the appartment such as: The Dolphin, Chica's (Espescially good for puddings!) and many more. Luz really is a magical place to visit and this appartments a great place to come back to after your exciting day out!
