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.

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 kids loved the range of inflatables and us adults loved the entertaining space and facilities (outside bbq and dining area were great). Loved the individually themed bedrooms and that each bedroom had its own ensuite. Lovely area, enjoyed daily walks to the beach and the beachfront shops and restaurants. We enjoyed sunny days around the pool which was a great temperature. Our host arranged daily clean and tidy service at our request and expense which was fantastic and recommended a chef service on request too. We would highly recommend this property and location for its beaches, restaurants and places of interest. We can't wait to return!!

So much so that we're already talking of seeing if it's free again for next year. Thank you for letting us experience your home from home - we loved it!
