Exceptional apartment in a lovely location
About the Owner
We first came to Luz in 2005 with our 3 young children.We have since returned every year for the last 8 years and it has been a fantastic family orientated place in which the children and ourselves have enjoyed immensely. It was because we love Luz so much that we decided to purchase a holiday home here so that we can enjoy the area more often and have a home from home.

Exceptional apartment in a lovely location
This apartment is a lovely surprise, it is much larger than average and in a perfect location with gorgeous views. We stayed as a family of 4 in this 2 bedroom apartment for 2 weeks in August and it gave us plenty of room. The directions supplied by the owner were really good and the apartment block looks really well maintained and welcoming. We had a minor issue with the shutters which was quickly and efficiently dealt with by the owners and the maintenance company. The apartment is really nice with superb facilities making it a real home from home. The views from both balconies are lovely and the sea is a short stroll away. I would recommend the apartment to anyone looking for a comfortable base from which to explore the area. Buses into Lagos can be caught from the bottom of the road and were always on time. The village of Luz is quite small and very pretty, nightlife is limited but that was perfect for us and the apartment is located away from the pubs and bars so is very peaceful in the evenings and through the night. Would stay here again if returning to Luz.
We stayed here for two weeks at the beginning of November and really enjoyed it .Top floor,great views,quality fixtures and fittings,handy for the beach and town. Everything you could ask for. Will definitely be back.

A great place to stay
We have just returned from Portugal having had a fantastic holiday, made all the more enjoyable by staying in this apartment. It is very spacious, well maintained with everything there you could possibly need. The pool and grounds are immaculate with plenty of sun beds to use free of charge.
The location of the apartment is ideal, it's a short walk to the town and beach. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes, we ate out every night and didn't have a bad meal anywhere. I would recommend 'Chaplins'.
We used 'Yellow Fish' for our airport transfers. If you are not going to hire a car I would recommend you use them. Door to door service in air conditioned vehicles! Very reasonably priced too.
We would use this apartment again without hesitation if we decide to return to Luz.
realy enjoyed our holiday ,lovely appartment very clean and spacious,everything you need in the appartment,sea view from the balcony nice and relaxing to seat and have a meal.plenty of exellent restaurants near by,will be returning in the near future.
Ideal Family Holiday
We were very pleased with the standard of our holiday apartment - in fact it was way beyond what we expected for the price we paid. It was just like home from home with everything we needed. It was also a good family-friendly resort and the apartment, pool and area were ideal both for us as Grandparents, my son and his wife and their two children aged 2 and 6 months. The weather was hot and sunny and all in all a very pleasant and enjoyable holiday for all of us.
Restaurants, Bars, shops, beach and even a lovely church all within easy walking distance. We look forward to further holidays in Praia da Luz.
