The Algarve / West Algarve region
The Algarve has some of Europe's best sandy beaches, idyllic rocky coves, golf resorts, and a relaxed lifestyle with its warm climate. Lagos is easily reached from Faro airport via the new motorway, and is the largest town in the western Algarve. It is also one of the most attractive, and has retained many of its traditional buildings. Lagos features cobbled streets, a large beach front marina, traditional markets, and lovely places to stroll and eat in the warm evenings.
Peak season is July & August, with temperatures reaching 30c, however warm, sunny weather is a feature of the region from late May to early October making all outdoor activities enjoyable.
The Praia da Luz / Luz Park area
Luz is 8 kms from Lagos, and is beautifully situated with a wide crescent of sandy beach surrounded by high cliffs behind the village. Luz has a lovely palm-lined promenade beside one of the best beaches in the Algarve. Extensive water sports, golf, tennis, horse riding and surfing are all available locally, and there is also a zoo and water park close by Luz. Other beaches close-by are also worth visiting, like Burgau, and there are fantastic walks across the headlands and inland in the countryside.
The village is a short walk - or minutes drive - from the villa, and has family friendly and relaxed restaurants, cafes, a small supermarket, a chemist, bank with ATM and post office.

It takes about 1 hour to reach the villa by car, either in a taxi (about Euro 70) or renting a car - Hertz, Sixt, Europcar and others are available from Faro airport. The motorway from Faro to Lagos is fast and quiet, and the majority of the journey is on this road. Directions from Lagos to the Villa, about 9 kms, are available.

This villa is everything the advert said it would be; private villa with sea views, beautiful pool and garden, modern and clean inside, quiet and relaxing. The villa is very large. Lots of terraces for sunbathing. Walled garden means its safe and private with off street parking. We had a wonderful holiday. We will book again.
