The Algarve region
The western part of the Algarve is both rugged and beautiful benefiting from not being over exploited by tourism.
Praia da Luz
Praia da Luz is a charming village with a gently shelving sandy beach and interesting rock pools to either end. The apartment is ideally placed, a short walk from shops, bars and restaurants and the beautiful beach. The medieval walled city of Lagos lies only a few kilometres away with it's livelier atmosphere and modern marina. Boat trips from the marina are a must to view the stunning coastline or even for dolphin spotting.
We have enjoyed many family holidays here as have our friends and family; Praia da Luz is a beautiful, relaxing spot with, in our view, just the right mix of things to do. There are a number of choices for golfers nearby and the area is a delight for walkers with it's beautiful scenery. Numerous beaches are nearby; from the sandy stretch of Meia Praia in Lagos to the typically Algarvian cliffed beaches of Dona Ana, Porto da Mos, not forgetting the beautiful stretch at Praia da Luz! Nearby are the lovely villages of Burgau and Salema whilst further afield there's the rugged beauty of Sagres with it's fort.
The cuisine is varied and good. There are many restaurants in Praia da Luz including typically Algarvian dishes such as the celebrated piri-piri chicken along with choices such as Chinese, Italian or Indian. Wine and beer is reasonably priced and very good, Sagres lager is a favourite!
There are a number of golf courses within easy reach including Boa Vista and Palmares. Fishing trips can be taken along with a choice of boat trips. There are two water parks, Aqualand and Slide and Splash within driving distance. For history lovers there are Roman remains in Luz itself and Lagos is surrounded by Medieval walls. Lagos even has a zoo and Zoomarine to enjoy. There are local markets to enjoy which sell a variety of local products along with those more commonly found. The beautiful mountain spa town of Monchique is well worth a visit along with Silves (ample parking situated on the river) with its castle and numerous historical churches.
There are a number of beautiful beaches and small villages along the coast within an easy drive or bus ride. For those who want a little pampering there is a spa within Estrellas which is a 2 minute walk from the apartment.
