The traditional fishing village of Luz also has a large beach, but is also steeped in history. The remains of the Roman villa of Luz provides a fascinating insight into Roman life, and the Nossa Senhora fort allows you to eat fantastic traditional food in the restaurant whilst contemplating the rough history of the Algarve and of Portugal.

Lagos is just 10 minutes west of Praia da Luz, and is easily accessible from Praia da Luz properties. It is a large historic town with a plethora of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as an exclusive marina offering cruises and excursions.

We have visited and enjoyed the resort several times and have never been disappointed. The agent is very easy to deal with and makes the process very easy and worry free. She communicates well and promptly. There is also lovely reception staff on hand at the resort to offer help should you need advice or assistance. Mar da Luz is a most beautifully maintained and safe complex. The grounds are immaculate and within the complex you are spoiled with both an outdoor pool and indoor spa area. We have stayed twice in a first floor apartment and once in a two bedroom with mezzanine and hot tub and we found them all beautiful, homely and comfortable with lovely view from the balcony. The resort is situated a 30 minute stroll from the beautiful sandy beach and lovely restaurants in Luz. There are plenty of places to visit from this location but you would need a car to get about. We love it here and have no hesitation in recommending this place.

The apartment is very well furnished, clean and well maintained. I would say a car is necessary due to its location but the trade off for having peace and quite is a no brainer. The property manager is extremely helpful and is keen to make your stay perfect. I would highly recommend this apartment and will be looking to book up for the next visit to Portugal.

It had everything you could ever need and was immaculately clean. It had great views from each of the terraces and you could see the Atlantic ocean. During the winter months, the hot tub was awesome to have. The Mar da Luz complex is really nice with great amenities. We recommend you have a car as there are so many great places to see within a short driving distance.
