Estrela Da Luz D
About the home
This luxury development is quiet and friendly, with a relaxed club-like atmosphere. Pool-side bar with all-day food in summer , and also the year-round indoor Hugo Beatty bar/cafe which is a great place to eat, mingle and meet new friends in the evenings.
Only 5 minutes walk (300 metres) to beach or village centre - you don't need a car. We can arrange chauffeur transport to and from airport for about €80 each way. Please note that many new developments described as being in Luz are actually not within walking distance of beach and village, but this development really is ideally located.
Luz is a lovely location for a family beach holiday, small groups of friends, and for golfers/walkers. Estrela attracts families, couples, and adult groups. Most of the visitors tend to be Irish or British, and we´ve also had Dutch and Canadian guests.
The village of Luz is low-rise, mostly villas, with plenty of restaurants, bars, a lovely seafront promenade with coffee bars, gift shops, and in the evenings, gift and jewellery stalls. Nearby Lagos (taxi 10 minutes Euro10) offers a good nightlife with restaurants and clubs.
The apt is finished to exceptionally high standard. Secure electric shutters and underfloor heating for winter evenings.
Child safety: Our furniture is family-friendly and really comfortable, ie no glass tables, white couches or sharp corners to bump into! The Estrela complex is secure and gardens are enclosed with coded entry gates, and CCTV.
This apartment opens onto three balconies overlooking pool area. There is CCTV surveillance of the apartment entry foyer. Babysitters can be arranged through reception, and most local restaurants welcome kids of all ages.

The kitchen is well fitted out, with all you need to create a meal for al-fresco dining. The south facing terrace is also great for perfectly private sunbathing during the day, and from it you can see both outdoor pool areas. Note that many of the apartments at Estrela have small terraces and some do not get sun at all. Ours offers both sun and shade all day.
The bedrooms are arranged as one double with en-suite and two twins.
There are three supermarkets within walking distance, the smallest a couple of minutes down the road and the larger Spar and Baptista only 5 minutes walk. Baptista will deliver your food. Lots or take-way options too.
Fish market in Luz is in the mornings 9-12; In Lagos there is a fantastic all-day fresh fish market, well worth a visit even just to look at!
Internet access available at the reception and Hugo Beatty bar on-site - there is a booth with 2 PCs and in the bar you can use your own laptop to wireless link. Otherwise there are at least three internet cafes in the village within five minutes walk.
Our flatscreen TV takes PC input and you have free internet in the apt,so bring along your laptop or ipad (free) .
The apartment has electric shutters which keep it cool by day. There is under-floor heating which is cozy in winter, and, with the south-facing aspect of the terrace, and access to the indoor pool and gym, our apartment has also proven particularly popular for off-season rentals.
The apartment is on the ground floor and has a dedicated indoor car parking space.

The Algarve / West Algarve region
The Algarve is well known for it's fabulous sandy beaches. Less developed than area around Faro and Albufeira, the Western Algarve still has small villages with small beach coves etc. The south coast has calm seas generally whilst surfing is popular on the wilder west coast, 25 minutes from Luz. The west coast is a nature reserve with magnificent long beaches and the area has many walks.
The Praia da Luz / Estrela da Luz area
Praia Da Luz is a lovely little seaside village, and a really well-kept secret. White villas, sandy beach, cobblestone walkways, slow and lazy atmosphere. Good choice of quality restaurants, bars and cafes as well as a range of shops and supermarket. From Estrela all are within 5 mins walk so you don't need a car.
This part of the Algarve is a golfer's paradise with many courses located within a half/one hour of the complex - eg Boa Vista, Pamares, Parque de Floresta, Amendoeira. Golf can be booked through receptions where many special rates are available all year round.
Estrela da Luz is in a quiet location in the village (many of the newer developments are actually quite a distance outside the village), just 250m walk to a small sandy cove with lovely rocks for sunbathing on, or 350 m to the popular beautiful sandy Luz beach at the centre of the village which has a large range of watersports ans saliing equipment for hire and lessons are available. The coastal walking and cycle path starts about 200m from Estrela.
Irish visitors may be interested in the very competitive dental prices in Portugal and I can recommend a very good dentist, 2 mins walk from the apartment which our family attends.

We stayed for 2 weeks at this apartment and had a fantastic holiday. The apartment was very well equipped, spacious and absolutely spotless. The complex itself catered fantastically for families and the kids had a brilliant time at the pool. The best thing is that it was within walking distance of the town and the lovely beach. The owner (Leslie) was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. i especially liked the fact that he took the trouble to phone me a few days before we were due to depart to check if we needed anything. I would highly recommend : )
