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.

The owners are a lovely, friendly couple. Jan in particular was amazingly helpful! The apartment was spacious and comfortable with daily maid service if required. Sea view balcony was a great place to while away time - warm but out of direct sunshine and able to see the beach. The beach is so close and it's a great beach! Lots of golden sand and water which is shallow for quite a long distance with virtually no current so great for kids. Along from the sandy part is an interesting more rocky part with rock pools to explore. There are a number of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. There are also supermarkets, one of which will deliver food to the apartments. There are market stalls and small shops dotted about for beach essentials and holiday souvenirs. The pool at the apartments is lovely with good shade coverage and a poolside cafe bar. Between the apartment, pool and beach, you have everything for a great family holiday all within easy reach. We did venture into Lagos on the bus and took a grotto trip from the marina which was a lovely addition. We booked this through reception. The Mayers also organised airport transfers for us and this went very smoothly with friendly drivers. Don't hesitate to book a holiday here! The hospitality was amazing and the facilities of both Mayer Apartments and Praia da Luz are perfect for a relaxing holiday.

The house was perfect, clean, tidy and well equipped. We will be returning to this house hopefully for many years to come. The owners were prompt and courteous, checking to see we were happy. There is nothing we would change about our stay and we would recommend this cottage highly without a hesitation. Thanks for a great holiday!
