About the property

Apartment in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal

The apartment is fully air conditioned and has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The bedrooms have twin divan beds that can be closed together. Both bedrooms have balconies, one overlooking the pool and one looking over Praia da Luz. The large balcony off from the lounge area receives morning sunshine and has outside dining furniture. The smaller balcony overlooking the pool receives afternoon sunshine. The kitchen is well equipped with all modern appliances, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer and all the usual utensils. The centre of Luz village is only a short stroll away from the apartments and still retains its traditional charm with cobbled streets, shops, bars and restaurants and offers something for all the family. The town of Lagos is just a 10 min drive away and offers a beautiful modern marina, markets and a much larger selection of restaurants and bars. There are many golf courses, water parks and a zoo within easy reach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your place was fantastic and we loved our first visit to Luz.

Your apartment was perfect. It had absolutely everything we needed for a self-catering holiday. Sometimes apartments are a bit sparse on kitchen utensils or towels or on the other hand a bit too cluttered with personal items.

We found your apartment to be just right.

The closest supermarket that stocks all essentials is a stone’s throw from the apartment where you can collect daily fresh bread and croissants.

There are 2 larger supermarkets within a 5 minute walk. Loads of restaurants, bars and cafes to choose from-all within very easy walking distance. Beautiful beach also within walking distance. I have stayed in a number of resorts in the Algarve and think Luz has got it all!

We would definitely book again and would recommend your place to our friends.

Clean, tidy and well equiped.

  • 4 of 5

Rebekah has a very business like approach and has excellent communications.

The apartment is well sited for the pool access and is clean, modern and well equipped. It has no sea view hence the four star. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will repeat same next year.

Great Apartment, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was absolutely lovely ? loved the location (so quick to walk into Luz), the apartment was really spacious and very clean, had all the facilities you could ever need and I definitely had a drink or three on the balconies!

Pool area was great for the kids and so good that you could sit out on balcony & watch them or open the front door to see them.

I would 100% stay there again - the owner Rebekah is so friendly & the emails/welcome packs & general great attitude was really appreciated.

Car: not necessary


Luz beach is a short walk away. The safe, wide sandy beach is ideal for swimming, sunbathing, building sandcastles or maybe a game of cricket! Watersports are available. The lovely sandy cove of Porto do Mos is a 10 minute drive to the east or to the west you have the busy fishing villages of Burgau or Salema, all of which have excellent beach bar/restaurants and soft golden sand. The more energetic might like to walk to these villages along the coastal path, enjoying the breathtaking views.


Faro airport is a 45-60 minute drive from Luz by motorway. Car hire can be arranged for pick up and drop off at the airport. However, as Luz has all you need, car hire is not essential and transfers can be arranged by taxi and through travel agents.


Lagos stands 5km to the east of Luz. Here you will find many shops, bars and restaurants among the narrow, cobbled streets. It is also interesting to walk around the marina. Other places of interest within driving distance include Sagres to the west and Silves to the east. To the north you will find Monchique situated in the hills. You might prefer Slide and Splash water park or the Zoomarine, both nearby.

Further Details:

The village of Luz is totally self-sufficient, having shops, bars, restaurants, banks and supermarkets some of which offer delivery. It is the ideal base for a relaxed seaside holiday or a more energetic walking or golfing holiday. Whilst the resort has grown over the years it still retains its friendly, village atmosphere.
