Side and rear patio areas which catch some early evening sun. Ideal for a relaxing holiday with plenty of attractions nearby if you wish. See owners website for more ideas.
The beach is super for children, beautiful sand with rocks and pools to the right just below our apartment and an attractive palm fringed promenade, which you can see in the photographs . Many of our visitors enjoy sitting by the wall watching the world go by.
There is a good supermarket, (which does home deliveries)and a fishmonger, plenty of restaurants all within easy walking distance no more than 5 minutes, so a car although useful is not essential.

The Algarve region
Praia da Luz or ''beach of light'' in Portuguese is in the western Algarve near Lagos
The coast has many lovely beaches and a temperate climate throughout the year. There is usually little rain in June, July , August and September. Although hot in peak season the Atlantic coast provides a cooling effect. Although more mixed it is often warm and sunny in March and October,although the evenings are generally cooler.
The west coast above Sagres(the end of the world) is wild and beautiful with plenty of surfing beaches.
Lisbon is 2-3 hours by motorway but a leisurely drive down the west coast has some fabulous scenery.
Praia da Luz
Praia da Luz's main attraction is its lovely sandy beach. and relaxed atmosphere. The main square has a pretty church, and the forteleza which is now a restaurant. The street is cobbled in the old Portuguese style.
There are plenty of restaurants, and bars, and a superb patisserie. Portuguese, lots of fresh fish and sea food, English, even Indian and Chinese food can all be had. An excellent beach bar, ideal for a leisurely lunch or an evening drink. A few swings are located close by on the beach, making this an ideal place to eat with younger children.
There is an excellent supermarket which does home deliveries.(Its only 5 minutes away however)
Bikes can be hired, jeep trips into the Alentjo, boat rides to see Dolphins in their natural habitat, horse riding within 20minutes.
There are many places to visit if you are so inclined. Lagos, with its marina, golden church, daily fresh fish and vegetable markets, and a monthly gipsy market is 10 minutes drive away.
An inexpensive meal of sardines and salad can be had on the quay at Portimao. Monchique the highest point on the Algarve, with its life giving water and Silves with its craft stalls.
There is an excellent waterpark Slide & Splash at Estombar (25 minutes drive) and the marine park Zoomarine is a great day out for children. ( Discount available from our agents in Luz).
Plenty of walks, and some very enjoyable golf courses. Four within easy reach Penina, Palmares, Parque da Floresta and the nearest Boa Vista -only 10 minutes away ,very enjoyable and not too expensive.
All that said you will find our apartment a good place to chill out ,if you just want to sunbathe on the terrace.

A fantastic apartment with fabulous sea views. The apartment is spacious, beautifully furnished and well equipped. The 2 bathrooms are a great plus and make things so much easier. There is a large patio with a plunge pool, sun beds and garden table and chairs. The apartment is within walking distance of the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. We had a relaxing week making the most of the patio, pool and wonderful views!
