Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve is well known for it's fabulous sandy beaches. Less developed than area around Faro and Albufeira, the Western Algarve still has small villages with small beach coves etc. The south coast has calm seas generally whilst surfing is popular on the wilder west coast, 25 minutes from Luz. The west coast is a nature reserve with magnificent long beaches and the area has many walks.

Luz

Praia Da Luz is a lovely little seaside village, and a really well-kept secret. White villas, sandy beach, cobblestone walkways, slow and lazy atmosphere. Good choice of quality restaurants, bars and cafes as well as a range of shops and supermarket. From Estrela all are within 5 mins walk so you don't need a car.This part of the Algarve is a golfer's paradise with many courses located within a half/one hour of the complex - eg Boa Vista, Pamares, Parque de Floresta, Amendoeira. Golf can be booked through receptions where many special rates are available all year round.Estrela da Luz is in a quiet location in the village (many of the newer developments are actually quite a distance outside the village), just 250m walk to a small sandy cove with lovely rocks for sunbathing on, or 350 m to the popular beautiful sandy Luz beach at the centre of the village which has a large range of watersports ans saliing equipment for hire and lessons are available. The coastal walking and cycle path starts about 200m from Estrela.Irish visitors may be interested in the very competitive dental prices in Portugal and I can recommend a very good dentist, 2 mins walk from the apartment which our family attends.

“Excellent!”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2011

We stayed for 2 weeks at this apartment and had a fantastic holiday. The apartment was very well equipped, spacious and absolutely spotless. The complex itself catered fantastically for families and the kids had a brilliant time at the pool. The best thing is that it was within walking distance of the town and the lovely beach. The owner (Leslie) was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. i especially liked the fact that he took the trouble to phone me a few days before we were due to depart to check if we needed anything. I would highly recommend : )
