It is bright and airy and extremely well laid out with a super hot tub with great views. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a nice relaxing holiday. Only a 10 minute drive in to Pria da Luz with great restaurants and beaches.

The pool is fantastic and perfect for regular dips to cool down as the weather was glorious. The patio offers welcome shade if required. The apartment is ideally located approximately 10 minutes walk from Luz which suited us to be in a quieter location rather than in the town itself. We loved Luz, plenty of restaurants and bars and the beach is gorgeous. With Lagos being only a 10 minute car journey we found Luz to be perfect and a hidden gem of the Algarve. The owner Kathy was extremely helpful before our trip and during our holiday when we had a query. Highly recommended.
