Just returned from one of the best holidays ever. The peaceful resort of Praia da Luz is thoroughly recommended if you need a relaxing holiday. We found the local people friendly and helpful.
The house was well maintained and comfortably furnished, it lacked nothing from the air-conditioning to the stock of DVDs and games to watch and play on the very rare wet day. The gardens and large pool are of a very high standard and beautifully clean. Compared to other properties we looked at it was very good value for money. It exceeded our expectations and the pictures on the website did not do it justice.
The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need to cook the most sophisticated meal, or you can eat out at dozens of restaurants and bars down near the beach which serve every kind of food that you might fancy from English, Indian, Chinese and African. There is even an English and Irish pub.
The beach itself is beautiful, overlooked by the Black Rock and surrounded by blue sea. Sit at an outside café, watch the many water sports, or just enjoy the sunshine.
Lagos was well worth a visit with its busy marina and shops - an opportunity for rides to watch dolphins or deep sea fishing.
The small surrounding villages were also very beautiful.
Finally, the English manager Chris was worth his weight in gold - especially when we locked ourselves out. It was very reassuring knowing we could phone a number and speak to a fellow Englishman.
All in all the perfect holiday.

Owner's Response: Peter & Sheila, thanks very much for your super review, comments like that make all our efforts worthwhile. We said you would have a good holiday and it appears that is what you had. Look forward to your return visit. Remember Luz is a fantastic place to stay in the winter months and we always treat returning guests favourably during the off season.
