About Michael Tiernan & Helene Leuschel

We are a British/German couple who moved to the Algarve in 2009, with our two young children, after falling in love with the area. Ever since moving to Portugal we have not only grown fond of the friendly welcoming nature of the Portuguese people but also the incredible life style of living by the Sea. The sun (over 300 days of sunshine each year) & stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean are still jaw-dropping, even after all these years and we have been able to explore the area and its numerous attractions and places of interest with great pleasure. We love having a beach picnic as much as dining out at one of our favourite local restaurants & we are sure that you will too!

Michael Tiernan & Helene Leuschel purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Michael Tiernan & Helene Leuschel chose Lagos region

We purchased the property, because we just love the quiet and picturesque location of Praia da Luz. Being demanding travellers ourselves, we wanted something that offered all of the luxuries that are needed, to make a holiday very special & after a very long and thorough search, we found an apartment in Estrela da Luz, that literally ticked all of the boxes.

What makes this apartment unique

We really do feel that our apartment is very special & enjoy it for a host of reasons - it’s luxurious, very spacious, has sea views from the lounge, kitchen & bedroom, there is access to all of Estrela’s facilities - heated pools, Jacuzzi, Sauna, Gym, tennis courts, gardens & it’s only a short walk to the beach & all local amenities - Restaurants, supermarkets, shops etc. It is very comfortable all year round, with air-conditioning & heating……yes, even though the sun is always close by, it can still be a little chilly in January! We also appreciate the special little touches, such as free parking & wifi, lots of space for kids beds/toys etc, a 24 hour reception & last but not least, a decent sized TV to relax in front of with a glass of wine, after a long ‘hard’ day at the beach :-)

Lovely apartment, very nice complex

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, very spacious and very well equipped. Lots of light despite being a ground/first floor, which helps keep it cool. The complex is wonderful with everything you need for a relaxing holiday and Michael was very helpful, we couldn't have asked for a better host. We will be back!!!!

Lovely spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many different places in Luz. The complex this apartment is on is conveniently located and of a high standard. The apartment itself was everything we could've hoped for. It's very spacious, well equipped with comfortable and practical furniture inside and out. The balconies are fantastic, one with a table and chairs to eat at or relax over a glass of wine, the other has comfortable loungers and is a sun trap. The apartment is well maintained and spotless clean. The owner could not be more obliging or helpful. We would definitely recommend this lovely apartment if you are planning a trip to Luz. As for Praia da Luz, it is a little piece of heaven. If you are a foodie the restaurants here whilst lacking pretentious decor turn out food which would not be out of place in a London restaurant. Try Aquario or Yolo for something very special, Onda Luz for outstanding Portuguese food. We're looking forward to when we can plan our next trip.

It was excellent.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, well equipped and bright. The resort provided a wonderful heated pool, hot tub and sauna, restaurant and exercise facilities. But most of all our hosts, Michael and Helen looked after us like family. We recommend it highly..

Nothing was too much trouble!

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend a stay in this apartment. Apart from the fact that it is very conveniently situated and also furnished to a very high standard, Michael was so helpful before, during and after our stay, even offering for my 10 year old son to practice with his son's football team! We will definitely be returning.

10 days of Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

The location of of the resort is perfect, the center of the resort is 5 minutes walk away. As for eating out there is so much choice and all of the restaurants we visited were great.

Michael gave us a great info sheet which we made good use of & visited places & restaurants we might not otherwise have considered.

The apartment is large, airy & clean. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, and there was always shade & sun on one or other of the two balconies. Our only reservation was that the pool area was a little noisy from the pool cleaning system.

Location

Coast/Beach:

5 minute walk to the main Beach of Praia da Luz

Travel:

Airports and driving time/distance to Luz: (1) Faro, Portugal to Luz - 1 hour, 94 KM / 59 Miles. (2) Lisbon, Portugal to Luz - 2hr 45min, 303KM / 190 Miles. (3) Seville, Spain to Luz - 2hr 45min, 290 KM /181 Miles Faro.

Public transport (trains/buses) do not offer terribly good links between Faro Airport and Luz and most people either hire a car or take a taxi from the airport. A taxi costs approx. €80 each way.

Distances:

The apartment is located within a 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants, supermarket, pharmacies and Luz town centre. The nearest large town/city, Lagos is 8 KM (5 miles) from Luz and is a must to visit. It’s also possible to walk to Lagos, over the cliffs from Luz (a safe walk). Numerous other beaches are also very close by.

Further Details:

The Algarve has something to offer for every age group, from water and adventure parks - Zoomarine, Slide & Splash, Crazy World, Mini Golf and the Lagos Zoo, to bird & dolphin watching, cycling and mountain biking, horse riding, an international outdoor go-kart circuit, surfing, shopping at one of the two open air modern malls to fine Michelin dining and the discovery of numerous historic sites and museums (Sagres in the West and Monchique, Silves, Alte and Estoi to name only a few other towns towards the Centre & Eastern part of the region).

Lagos alone has an art, science and wax museum, a vibrant Saturday morning fresh produce market and a chic and vibrant marina to watch the yachts anchored in the harbour. For those in need of a well-deserved rest, stunning stretches of sandy beaches are all along the coast, offering their own list of water sports from jet-skiing, windsurfing and kite surfing to boat rides and paddling.
