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 Luz

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 :-)

Very good.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was really large and comfortable for a one bedroom, we were very impressed with the size of the rooms. Two large balconies with sun most of the day and only a five minute walk to the seafront. Estrela is a first class resort with lots of attention to detail. We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 night stay.

Even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Luz, and this suite really helped us feel at home. It is spacious, clean and comfortable, with modern appliances, a good bed and nice furniture. There were numerous little extras that we appreciate - some spices and other stock items from previous guests, as well as a toaster and Bodum and Nespresso coffee makers. Everything was very easy to use and we really appreciated the clothes washer.

Michael was great to deal with. He sent us a very thorough outline of virtually everything we needed to know, and communicated quickly with us before, during and after our stay.

Estrela da Luz is a great complex, very professionally run, with all of the extras of a first class resort. Luz is a beautiful, laid back little town, without all of the hustle and bustle of nearby Lagos. It has a good beach, some nice restaurants, a supermarket and excellent walking both east and west of town. We walked to Lagos one day and it was quite do-able, after the initial hike up the cliff to the east of Luz. Ponta da Piedade to the south of Lagos is a must see! Contrary to what some online sites might say, the bus between Lagos and Luz is pretty good, the only problem being it doesn't operate past 20:00 from Sept. to June.

If you are looking for a laid back vacation, with some awesome walks along the coast, we would highly recommend Luz, and Michael's place is

a wondeful home to enjoy it from.We definitely hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

Thanks for everything, Michael.

Spacious sunny apartment

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the apartment was very helpful. The apartment has everything two people need to have a great holiday. It is spacious and well equipped with two lovely balconies. One has sunloungers and gets the sun all day. The complex the apartment is on is friendly with excellent facilities and pools.

Clean spacious and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this appartment and enjoyed every minute of it. Its a great size and fully equipped to serve all your needs. Above all it is clean comfortable and suitability located to explore Luz and the surrounding areas. The owners are more than accommodating and even provided a bottle of bubbly and chocolates on arrival. Although its a ground floor apartment its highly convenient and you even get a glimpse of the sea. Would recommend to a couple or small family and would definitely return. Many thanks!

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!!!!

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.
