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.

                                                            The villa was fantastic, just right for our family holiday and perfect location. We had a delightful week here. The first feeling you get is that the place makes you feel at ease. The design from the house, garden and pool was all very tasteful and high quality. Also, everything you could need is in the house, also an electric juicer. We made fresh orange juice every day. You can buy nice oranges from people who sell at the side of the road. All the furniture in and around the house was of good quality. We have stayed in lots of Villas in many different resorts. It was beautifully clean and well equipped. Praia da luz is a fantastic little village. Thanks so much to An for efficiency and attention to detail, making sure our holiday was special. I would highly recommend it.

                                                            Lovely spacious apartment with good facilities in a nice quiet location

                                                            We had a great stay here - a really relaxing few days. Hassle free booking, check-in and check-out processes. Good facilities on site (pool, tennis courts, restaurant). The apartment was spacious, very clean and well equipped. It's in a nice quiet location but only a five minutes walk to the beach and locals bars and restaurants.

                                                            Top quality Villa in superb location

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            We have been visiting this part of the Algarve for some years and like Porto Donna Maria as a base. Casa Bonita is very well located, just a short walk from Praia Da Luz. Apart from a few sections of rough track, most of the walk can be made on pavements or for those who prefer, the coastal path provides spectacular views. Talking of views, the one from the pool terrace is hard to beat and provides an unobstructed view of the sea. One drawback to being on high ground is that it is often windy. It's not a problem when the wind is warm but a northerly can make sitting out a bit too chilly. There's a lovely covered veranda just outside the lounge with a glazed screen at one end which offers protection from the wind. This is a lovely spot for coffee, breakfast or a glass of wine. The villa is modern and very well furnished. It is spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen is stocked with ample supplies of chinaware and cooking pans. Shutters on all windows offer additional security but the villa is located in a peaceful residential area and feels very safe anyway., We found we could get UK TV channels via a set top box which isn't too common as many places with a Sky dish no longer have access to UK channels. The free wi fi is invaluable for keeping in touch with the outside world and friends back home. Phone reception was a little unreliable but easily re-established once away from the immediate vicinity. We made extensive use of the BBQ, a proper Portuguese type fired by charcoal. The local supermarket in Luz, Baptista, stocks everything you need and the quality of meat there is superb. There's a nearby fishmonger sharing a shop with a patisserie and the choice is excellent but best go early in the busy season to have a bigger choice. Although Luz has many good restaurants, we tend to eat out further afield. A half hour drive to the west coast is rewarded by spectacular scenery, long sandy beaches and lovely local food, with a view. Drive to the town of Carapateira, walk on the beach at Amado, eat at Sitio do Forno on the clifftop and then take the breathtaking drive along the rough track across the headland to the beach at Bordeira on the other side. It's an experience that's hard to beat. The pool is a good size but heating is advisable unless you like it chilly. We will be coming back to Casa Bonita. The owner is very responsive and odd glitches are quickly resolved. In short, there's much to love and little to dislike.
