“Beautiful complex, spacious & comfortable, lovely pool area, good on-site restaurant” We are back in Ireland after a most relaxing stay at Villa Baia where we experienced "silence without the loneliness", it was a wlecome relief to stay at such a lovely apartment complex without all the late night noise especially as we have kids ourselves. I would definately recommend this complex to family and friends, it has everything you need, it's ideally situated within close proximity to beautiful Luz beach and the local shops. I was immediately impressed with the modern décor of the apartments , they are bright, spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff at Villa Baia are very pleasant. Hope to stay again soon:-))
“Excellent apartment and area” The apartment is spacious,clean and ideal for relaxing holiday, the owner Alison was so helpful sorting out taxi for us and Corrine who is on site very welcoming, the whole place is lovely, your own named sun beds,big pool and a delightful little town and would definitely want to come again, easy to bus to busierLagos if needed.
This small coastal town in the western Algarve is perfect for a quiet family beach getaway, packed with a great mix of scenery, relaxation and activities. Be sure to book a holiday rental in Praia da Luz for a family vacation that you'll remember forever.
About Praia da Luz
Situated near Lagos, this charming Portuguese town has a lot to offer in the way of memorable beach experiences for the whole family, with something to please just about everyone.
The town has a long history, with settlements going back as far as Roman times, and pirates and invaders featuring heavily in local myths and legends. The recently uncovered Roman ruins by the beach give a little taste of this rich history.
What to Do
Get wet and wild with some water sports. Waterskiing is always a thrill, or why not give wakeboarding a go? For family fun, banana boating is the best!
Take some scenic walks along the beachfront and the cliffs for outstanding views of the area.
Top Praia da Luz Travel Tips
It's generally a quieter spot for holidaymakers, so there's not much in the way of nightlife. There are a few spots for partying, but if you're after a particularly big night out, consider spending the evening in nearby Lagos for a greater selection.
For an action-packed family beach getaway, with equal measures of relaxation, be sure to book your next holiday rental in Praia da Luz.

Waterfront apartment with uninterrupted sea view
Fabulous apartment with the best sea view
I have stayed in numerous apartments over several years vacationing in Praia da Luz and 23B is def one of the best. Right on the sea front with a sunny & sheltered garden terrace (for breezier, low season days), Very comfy beds, clean and all important mod cons including a dish washer - a real bonus:). Craig was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions. I would be very happy to stay at 23B on future Holidays in Luz & I would highly recommend this apartment. …

Well equipped spacious family villa with an excellent pool
Plenty of outdoor and indoor space. Bathrooms and kitchens are excellent and living areas could be improved with a refurbish. The electrics need an upgrade as kept tripping. We paid for pool heating which was excellent. A lonely property and would recommend. …
Holiday Apartment - Praia da Luz
I can’t speak highly enough of this place!
The apartment itself has everything you need - plenty of storage, spacious room, lovely living area, balcony big enough to dine outside on and a kitchen fully equipped with microwave, washing machine, oven, kettle etc etc. There are also some inflatables and other games for at the beach or pool. Another bonus is the lift access to your floor and ground level.
The pool is perfect, never too busy when we were there, a small pool for the little ones which was perfect for our 6 year and 6 month old. It even has a small playground next to it as if the kids would get bored!
The location of the apartment is a 5-10 minute walk away from the beach front and all the shops and restaurants. There are 2 local supermarkets less than 10 mins walk away as well.
For anyone interested I ran some lovely trail routes along the coast to Burgau and to Salema, however be prepared for some hill training. The beach is also a great place to run for some flat terrain!
We stayed here for a week and had no complaints what so ever and would happily go back, The owner was always happy to accommodate any needs we had and always responded quickly to any questions we had both before and during our visit! We were a party of 3 adults, 1 child and a baby and we didn’t have a car (you don’t need one IMO). Luz is a quiet town with a lovely beach and town. If you are looking for a quiet family holiday to enjoy the weather, restaurants and beach and some relaxing time then this place is absolutely perfect! …
Fabulous family holiday
Excellent villa, well located in Luz with easy access to local supermarket and restaurants. We had a hire car as 1 member of our family required to be driven back and forth (if you're able bodied no need for car as local buses are also very good).
The villa has everything required to have a stress free holiday, kitchen is well equipped with all utensils that you would need if you decide to cook. The outside area is excellent as it has plenty of shaded areas if you need cover from the sun for a bit (we all needed this as some point).
We will definitely use this villa again when we are having a large family holiday. The space inside the villa is plentiful and you're not all in each others way.
Nicola from themanagement company that looks after the villa is extremely helpful and only a phonecall away if you need help with anything.
Fiona the owner of the villa is also available if there are any issues.
Overall, 1 of the most relaxed holidays we have had. …
Vila das Acacias
Great apartment with excellent facilities. The apartment was very clean and well kept. Good to be met on arrival and shown way around. The only negative that I would have is that they are not very well sound proofed and this can make them noisy when young children running around. Would recommend them as also in a very good location. …
