About Tony McGrath

Hi, welcome to our apartment in Estrela da Luz! I'm Tony and my wife Therese and 2 young boys try to get out to Luz as ofter as we can. We live in Ireland so when we can't be there we'd love for you to avail of the apartment and have as good a time as we always have there!

Tony McGrath purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Tony McGrath chose Lagos region

We've owned the apartment since the EDL resort was built. We chose this apartment because it has excellent sea views and a clear view of the 2 resort pools below. Luz is the most beautiful village and we can walk every where - beach, shop, restaurants. The EDL resort is state of the art and the indoor pool and facilities mean we can swim, gym etc all year round.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is fully fitted with all modern coveniences so no need to bring anything with you. There is free wifi in the apartment.

24 hour reception service means you will never be without assistance when you might need it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well we have just come back from a very relaxing week at your lovely apartment. It was an ideal location for the type of holiday we all needed at this time of year. Although the weather could have been a little better

it didnt stop us playing endless tennis and the boys even managed a day's surfing. I managed to have a couple of pampering sessions in the spa as well as making full use of the indoor pool.

The young man at Reception was exceptionally helpful and pleasant.

I'm sure you must look forward to retreating there yourselves as often as you can!

Just wanted to say thank you very much for your lovely apartment. It really was beautiful and the complex itself is lovely too. We had a great week - the weather was glorious and everywhere was very quiet and relaxed.

Car: not necessary


The apartment is in a village setting and just 5 minutes walk from the beautiful Luz beach. There is an abundance of other spectacular beaches within 10 minutes drive east or west of Luz including Praia d'Anna and Bergau.


Estrela da Luz is about 80 km from Faro airport and the journey takes about fifty minutes by the A22 motorway. If you wish taxi transport can be arranged for you to and from the airport through a very reliable and reasonably priced company, catering for large groups and small groups alike. A hire car is handy if you want to tour the western Algarve and beyond. However a car is not necessary for your holiday in Luz as exerything is available on your door step and within a short walk.

Further Details:

The Estrela da Luz resort is located right in the beachside village of Luz and so everything is on your doorstep - restaurants, bars, shops and of course the beach is within 200m.

The Praia da Luz beach is a beautiful sandy bay shaded by cliffs to the east and smooth rock outcrop to the west. Great waves for body boarding and plenty of restaurants and cafes within easy reach. The village itself is an old fishing village which has retained its old style charm. The atmosphere is always relaxed and the locals are very hospitable. There is a great selection of restaurants with seafood and other specialities.

Luz is an ideal holiday destination and has everything - great weather, beautiful beach, lovely restaurants, and all necessary facilities. The village has a relaxed atmosphere and the locals are very welcoming. If you want more lively nightlife then Lagos has a great range of bustling out-door restaurants and bars where tourists from all around come to eat and drink. The area is a golfer’s paradise with 3 top class courses within 30 minutes. Everyone that has been to stay at this new apartment so far has had a brilliant time in Luz and Lagos. There's so much to do there, but even if you just want to relax in the apartment and use the resort facilities you won't be disappointed.

The port town of Lagos is just 10 minutes drive away (€6 taxi) with its marina and old town centre which has a huge variety of shops, restaurants and bars. Lagos is lively and great to visit at night for food, drink and a stroll through the cobble streets. The shops are great for presents and souvenirs especially local ceramics and jewellery.
