Guestbook comments from the owner
The apartment was wonderfull and more than lived up to its description. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and air conditioning was available in the living area and both bedrooms.

The Balcony was superb overlooking the quiet pool and facing out to sea.

The excellent Bapista Supermarket was just 2 mins walk away and the beach a little further on.

Praia da Luz is an excellent resort, quite with loads of eating places and close to other great resorts such as Lagos Burgau and Salema.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend the apartment without hesitation. It was so superior to your average holiday let

John and I first visited Luz in 1982 and fell in love with it and we visited many times so in 2006 we decided to purchase our apartment in Luz as we love the friendly welcome you get from all the great restaurants and bars and the lovely sandy beach.

I am an accountant John is a retired business owner

Ann Lawrenson purchased this apartment in 2006

We chose this first floor apartment at Cristaluz

because of the great views from all the good sized rooms and the wonderful view of the sea and black rock from the balcony as the apartment is an end one the apartment has 2 sets of patio doors which makes the apartment lovely and bright. We also chose this apartment because it had 2 bathrooms and a large fully fitted kitchen.

As I love swimming the added benefit was the heated swimming pool with sun bed terrace and gardens,which is for the private use of the 15 apartments, also the apartment is ideally situated in the centre of the village therefore it is close to the beach and the restaurants bars and supermarkets. As we use this apartment as a second home it has all the amenities you will require.

FANTASTIC APARTMENT - LOOK NO FURTHER !!!

  • 5 out of 5
When you arrive at this apartment it almost exceeds expectations. The apartment has a double-aspect (wrap around balcony) so is extremely light and welcoming. Everything is provided for a fantastically relaxed and luxurious stay. Everything is beautifully clean and stylish and we appreciate this as we have had disappointments before where photographs were provided 10-15 years out of date in previous holidays. Look no further as Luz has much to offer and the apartment is so conveniently located and as well as being comfortable. Many thanks Ann for your efficient correspondence and we would love to return again next year ! Kind regards Pete, Julie, Freddie & Josh

PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
This is certainly one of the best holiday rentals we have stayed in. The accommodation is well maintained and spacious with everything spotless on arrival. The owner, Ann, is very easy to communicate with and responds very quickly to email.
The apartment's situation in Praia da Luz is excellent, being minutes walk from two supermarkets and a superb delicatessen with fresh fish counter.
The balcony offers lovely views of the bay and the pool was a real bonus, particularly as we had beautiful weather while we were there.
Praia da Luz is a delightful resort and the lovely beach is within ten minutes walk. There are very good restaurants available within walking distance - we particularly liked the Atlantico for an evening meal and the homemade ice cream kiosk opposite the church for an afternoon treat!
It is possible to walk to the nearby village of Burgau along the coast and there is an excellent restaurant there where you can eat freshly caught fish. If you don't fancy the walk back, you can catch the bus for €1.60.
Lagos is worth a visit and is easily accessed by car or by bus. Many boat trips go from the harbour and we particularly enjoyed the "grotto" trip.
This is without doubt an apartment we hope to return to!

GREAT APARTMENT - HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from 15 wonderful days in Praia da Luz, the weather and the apartment could not be faulted. This is our third time in this apartment so I think that speaks for itself. You will go a long way to find an apartment like this one with all the home comforts and a spectacular view from the balcony. We will miss having breakfast on the balcony. The pool is well
maintained and the beach is only 5 mins away with lots of water activities. There are lots of restaurants in Luz to suit all tastes. Lagos is a short bus ride or car journey away, with more restaurants and shops.
We would recommend this apartment to families and couples. We can not wait to return,.

GORGEOUS APARTMENT

  • 5 out of 5
Our second visit in 12 months. That says it all really. You wouldn't go back unless it was top-notch.
The weather this time round was not so good but that just meant more opportunities for walking! Great cliff top and coastal walks from the beach. Weather did finally come good so eventually able to explore more of the fabulous beaches in this area of the Algarve.
Able to stay for an extra few days this time round but still sad to leave.
