The location is within a sleepy fishing village, with beaches shops and restaurants close at hand. If your ideal is to be away from the normal crowded fronts of the Algarve and to enjoy a more cultural location that still has all the amenities then this is the place for you. Santa Luzia is very relaxing place to be, with no high rise or busy streets. This working fishing village is still very much as it has been for centurys. Tavira is just 3 K away with its Moorish old town and Venetian looks with plenty of bars, shops and restaurants. The apartments terrace takes the sun all day long, so you can unwind, use the communal pool, at your leisure. Serviced with a brick BBQ, loungers, chairs and table for the complete holiday feel into the night. Finished off with wide panoramic views of the sunset every night whilst enjoying a cool glass of wine.

"A fabulous place to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings and comfortable accomodation"

We loved this holiday. The accomodation was excellent, especially the large roof terrace and amazing barbeque. The village itself had plenty of lovely restaurants and bars and we especially enjoyed the boat ride to the incredible beach. The pool was nearly always deserted which was an added bonus.

"probably the best appt in Santa Luzia"

Our second visit to this appt, it really is super. We had just as good a time as last year. Its so convenient. You dont really need a car but if you want to explore a bit, a car is useful. We found free WIFI in several bars so you can keep in touch with the world if you need to. Otherwise its the perfect place to chill out. Have already recommended the appt and village to several friends who are very disappointed to see its about fully booked til October - just shows how popular it is

"Lovely location"

We had a superb time in this lovely apartment. The interior is very comfortable and the outside space enormous. You are able to sit in the sun or the shade whatever the time of day. The pool was a welcome relief from the heat. The views are over the Ria Formosa are beautiful, especially in the evening. There are numerous bars and resturants in Santa Luzia - a visit to Tavira is also a must.

"Relaxing holiday destination and perfect accommodation"

This property has the perfect location in a lovely village setting minutes from restaurants 2 small general stores one with butcher(they make burgers to order)a fishmonger and several bars. Train or ferry to beach or stay at home and use the pool and pool terrace. The roof terrace area of this home is huge and has lovely views over the village and the ria formosa and beyond. Catch the bus into Tavira for more shops,supermarkets,restaurants bars etc. Myself and family had the most amazing holiday here in Tavira and will return. Thanks Ian and family for the use of your lovely property.

"superb appartment and location"

very spacious, clean, well equipped appt with super terrace , home from home. British TV and selection of DVDs. distant sea view, quiet out of season. lovely sea front with good selection of cafes and restaurants. Shops nearby that everything from tomatoes to taps !Santa Luzia is famous for its octopus fishing - have to try it, its delicious. Rio Formosa is great for bird watching and walking. Car hire not necessary but useful if you want to explore inland which we did visiting old villages and walking in the hills. Planning to return next year.
