Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This is our much loved holiday apartment, the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday. The complex includes a newly refurbished pool area with 2 pools, one which is shallow and ideal for small children, and a children's play area set within beautifully landscaped gardens There is ample parking, banks, two restaurants and a small coffee shop and snack bar on site.
The apartment is situated on the first floor and is accessible by lift. Furnished to a very high standard and excellently equipped, renters will find this apartment meets a standard much higher than expected of most rental apartments. The open large living area has a sofa bed which could be made available for an extra person if required. There is satellite TV (limited channels). There is a well-equipped kitchen with oven, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave etc. The double bedded room has an en-suite shower room and the second bedroom is a twin bedded room. Both rooms have fitted wardrobes and drawer space. There is a second bathroom with bath and shower over.
A most prominent feature of the apartment are the magnificent uninterrupted sea views from the living room, both bedrooms and the 2 sea facing balconies.
The beach is only a 5 minute walk away and a small supermarket is within a 2 minute walk. There are a wide variety of excellent restaurants all within a very short walk. The location, presentation and the manner in which the apartment has been equipped all make for the perfect self catering holiday, and we are confident that you will not be disappointed. We have English and Portuguese speaking friends who help us look after our apartment when we cant be there, and Clive and Ana are available to give you help or information if needed.

The Algarve region
Praia da Luz is the ideal holiday destination and a great place from which to explore the Western Algarve, and beyond, as the new A22 motorway makes the whole of the Algarve easily accessible. There is a beautiful blue flag beach and the water is clean and transparent. In addition to rock pooling, a range of water sports are available from the beach. Along the promenade artists regularly display their work. The ruins of some Roman baths can be found just behind the wall which runs along the promenade. There are lots of restaurants, bars and cafés, banks and shops for everything you are likely to need. Lagos is around a 10-minute drive away and there is a regular bus service. There are some fabulous walks along the cliff tops.
Luz is about 10 minutes drive west from the historical town of Lagos with its narrow cobbled streets, numerous stunning beaches, quality restaurants and quaint bars and clubs attracting a vibrant nightlife. Dolphin watching, grotto trips and surfing excursions available at the marina.
Visit the historic fortress at Cape St Vincent, where you can stand at "the end of the world" at Sagres. Enjoy a day at excellent waterparks (the nearest Slide and Splash in Lagoa) whilst Zoomarine, near Albufeira, is a great day out where you can swim with dolphins. Alternatively entertain yourself at Lagos Zoo only a short drive away. Golfers flock to the Algarve all year round due to the mild winter climate, Golf courses nearest to Luz are: BOAVISTA - 5 minutes drive PALMARES - 10 minutes drive, PARQUE DE FLORESTA - 15 minutes drive
