Mar da Luz
About the home
This fully equipped luxury apartment benefits from its own large roof terrace (with a private Jacuzzi) which enjoys the sun all day and has panoramic sea views. After enjoying the daytime sunshine why not spoil yourself by relaxing in the Jacuzzi in the evening watching the sun go down over the Monchique Mountains, after all you are on holiday! The apartment is set in an exclusive complex with beautiful landscaped gardens and water features. There is an adult and kids outdoor swimming pool, fully equipped gym, heated indoor pool with Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a spa room if you fancy a relaxing massage... The floor to ceiling sliding doors from the living room leads to a spacious terrace also with sea views. The terrace has inset lighting (very romantic in the evening) and is furnished with a table and chairs (for 6) to enable you to dine al fresco, enjoy breakfast whilst gazing at the sea, or simply just relax with a glass of wine at the end of the day.
The apartment is ideal for families (or golfers). In addition to the two bedrooms there is a mezzanine floor with a sofa bed for additional guests (if required). Adjacent to a National Park with beautiful costal walks there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area during your stay. There is also free Wi-Fi access.

The Algarve / West Algarve region
The un-spoilt Western Algarve is an unexpected, surprising and delightful discovery for people used to a more hectic lifestyle. Set in a niche of barely discovered coves, azure waters, platinum sands and picturesque fishing villages, here you will find space and time to relax and rejuvenate oneself in an eclectic mix of modernity and ancestry.
The Algarve has a wonderful climate with over 3000 hours of sunshine per year making it a fantastic year round holiday destination. The summers are hot and dry. Temperatures average around 29º, but can rise into the 30ºs, with up to 12 hours of sunshine per day. There is usually a cooling sea breeze which keeps the atmosphere light. Spring and autumn are sunny. Temperatures average 17 – 20º and there is plenty of sunshine – perfect for golf and other sports.
The Lagos / Burgau area
Lazing by the pool or on the beach is always agreeable but for those who rather expend a little more energy we have plenty of suggestions. The list of things to do in the Algarve is almost endless..... big game fishing on the high seas, dolphin watching, kayak tours, scuba-diving. On dry land we suggest exciting off-road safaris by quad or jeep, go-karting, theme parks, water parks, tennis and much more...
There is a beautiful sandy beach cove in Burgau where the Beachbar is highly recommended for lunch or dinner and they rent sun loungers and shaded palms.
Golf on the Algarve is truly unique and an all round unforgettable experience. The year round sun and warm climate attracts many enthusiasts from chilly Northern Europe to play in the peak season of October to May. Nearest golf courses are Parque Da Floresta 18 hole championship course or Boavista 18 hole championship course and both are within a 10 minute drive. You also have Pilmares in Lagos and Penina which is only about a 15 minute drive away.
If you like fine dining check out www.fortalezadaluz.com which is only a couple of minutes drive away in Luz, or www.restaurantedonsebastiao.com in Lagos which is about a 15 minute drive away. These are just two of many nice restaurants around the area.
For motor racing enthusiasts you should check out one of the best and most modern circuits in Europe - The Algarve International Circuit www.autodromoalgarve.com. The circuit is about a 10-15 minute drive from Mar da Luz

I went with my wife and we had a wonderfully relaxing week. Your apartment is fantastic with everything we required. The private jacuzzi on the roof terrace is something special and a great way to relax at the end of the day (especially with a glass of champagne)! The restaurants you recommended were top class! We explored Monchique and we had a great day with wonderful food and service. We would definitely go again....can't wait!
