Make a holiday villa in Luz your home away from home

Luz, or Praia da Luz is one of Portugal’s most sought after holiday destinations thanks to its magnificent coastline characterised by astounding cliffs and mesmerising white-sanded beaches. The waters here are crystal clear and the weather favourable for basking for most parts of the year. Besides the sun and sand, Luz has plenty more to offer including ancient archaeological sites and medieval buildings boasting distinctive architecture. What was once a quiet fishing village has over the years seen rapid development, mainly in the form of holiday homes for sun-worshipping tourists. Among these best of the holiday accommodation in Luz are the holiday villas and apartments provided by HomeAway. Many of them are right at the seafront, offering delightful views from their balconies and quick access to the soft sands of the beach for hours of basking. These Luz holiday rentals also come with an incredible array of facilities ranging from swimming pools to Internet access.

Things to do

-Beaches: The prime though occupying holidaymakers’ minds as they plan their Portuguese holiday is escape from their mundane daily routines to enjoy the boundless summer sun and the sweet Atlantic breeze. They can do this from the picturesque white beaches of this locale. From virtually anywhere along the Praia da Luz coastline visitors can find spellbinding views over the ocean. They can also get a refreshing cocktail while promenading the beach from a selection of restaurants and bars.

-Water sports: Conditions at Praia da Luz are wonderfully ideal for a number of water sports. When visitors hit the beach they will likely find locals and some tourists profiting from the winds for both surfing and windsurfing sessions. Those who enjoy wakeboarding will also be able to indulge in the same. Kayaks and the accompanying kayaking gear can also be hired from shops at the beach. Diving is only natural given the clarity of the waters.

-Outdoor activities: Other than scuba diving and other water-based activities, there are many other ways for thrill-seekers to enjoy themselves. Among them are 4x4 rides on open-top Jeeps through the rugged terrain while looking out for wildlife. For those more into organized sport, a trip to the Jonathan Markson Algarve Tennis Centre may be a better idea. Here they can participate in fun tennis camps.

-Town: Wandering about in Luz, visitors will be impressed by the way this rapidly developing town has managed to retain its medieval charm. They will still find the narrow cobblestone streets laid down hundreds of years ago. The bright little cottages of fishermen still line the streets.

-Food and drink: Residents of Luz holiday homes can seize the opportunity to visit the restaurants that line the coastline where freshly-caught sea delicacies are served. It is their chance to exchange the usual fish and chips for carefully marinated octopus. But should the longing for a more familiar repast become too strong to resist, a visit to the Plough and Harrow on Rua Direlta will set you right.

Weather in Luz

Holidaymakers keen on spending time in Luz holiday villas will be pleased to note that the weather here is favourable for most of the year. From April all the way to November, temperatures remain mostly above 20°C. This means visitors can plan their visit to avoid the sometimes scorching summer heat and instead visit in May or September when the climate and crowds are more bearable. Winters are equally supportable with temperatures staying in the teens between December and March.

Travel to Luz

Just 15 miles from this town is the Faro Airport, also known as the Algarve Airport. This airport mainly handles seasonal flights from London, Dublin, Hamburg and other European cities, especially in the summer months. From the airport to their holiday homes in Luz, visitors can use the train or public buses.

A perfect stay in an outstanding villa

5 of 5
We had an absolutely outstanding stay in Villa Laranja, which caters for all the needs you could possibly have. The nearby small town of Luz is picturesque and has quite a few small and delightful restaurants and also contains the daily shopping that you might need. The neighbourhood at Quinta la Bela Vista is very classy and calm, you find your holiday mood there at once. Everything was also very convinient when it comes to our contact with Karen and everything was to our satisfaction. We would like to stay here on many more occasions, we loved it a lot!

Brilliant location with all the comforts of modern living in a first class apartment complex

5 of 5
Mar de Luz offers a stress free holiday in a beautiful location surrounded by everything you need to enjoy your holiday. The facilities at the complex are perfect. A gym, indoor pool, sauna and option to book spa sessions with Saskia which is highly recommended. A car is essential even if just for the trip to the local supermarket. But for those wishing to go further a field there are some amazing locations to visit like Monchique, Silves, Vilamoura and Sagres. The Portuguese are truly delightful and friendly. Restaurants are in abundance and never failed to deliver. Booking the property is easy and correspondence from the owners is very helpful. Overall can't fault the apartment, location and value for money. Looking forward to returning soon.
