About Peter S.
In our 60s, currently in East Sussex but looking to be here for most of the year in due course. We are both Life and Business coaches who enjoy playing tennis and watching football.
Peter S. purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Peter S. chose Luz
We fell in love with the view from our apartment when we first saw it and familiarity has not dampened our enthusiasm. The village of Praia da Luz has a wonderful atmosphere - no high rise or big hotels. However, we are right next door to the large city of Lagos, so we have all the benefits of a large commercial centre 5 minutes' drive away without having to live in it. The Portuguese are a lovely people and most on the Algarve speak English. We are 10 minutes walk from the beach, supermarkets and restaurants - a bit longer coming back uphill afterwards!
What makes this Apartment unique
We have a wonderful view, superb neighbours, a welcoming and pleasant community, a substantial ex-pat population if you want to mingle and glorious weather for most of the year. We love the peace and quiet out of season but the village really bustles with all sorts of festivals and markets in the high season.
100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
A very well appointed apartment that is clean and comfortably furnished and has a relaxing home-from-home feel.
We had a nice surprise when we arrived to find a generous 'welcome pack' waiting for us in the fridge - milk, cheese, ham, butter, bread, beer and wine.
We particularly enjoyed the roof-top terrace with its superb views and all day sunshine, perfect for sunbathing.
The communal pool is clean and well maintained and not at all busy.
The apartment is in a quiet location approx 10 minutes walk to the beach, shops and good selection of restaurants. Can recommend Paulo's, A Concha and the jazz lunch at Fortaleza.
We did our main supermarket shop at the Baptista, who then delivered it to the apartment.
This was a great holiday for us and we hope to return next year.
Excellent séjour. Appartement impeccable .vue magnifique sur la mer! Confort top!:

Cher Marcelino, Nous vous remercions pour votre genre et de la critique enthousiaste. Nous sommes ravis que vous avez apprécié vos vacances.
Super nice and cozy apartment
Pictures do not make justice to this lovely apartment. The apartment was more than we expected. Perfect stay for a family of four. Very clean and well equipped apartment with absolutely stunning views to the ocean. All the living spaces are in one level with a nice balcony. Private roof terrace with a bbq grill is spacious with sun beds exc. Safe parking just 10 meters from the apartment. The shared pool felt almost like private as the BelaVista housing complex was really quiet even in mid July. Hard to find anything negative but it is good to notice that the apartment is high on the hill so to have a car in use is recommended.
Praia da Luz, is a quiet and relaxed village community that trebles in size in the high season. There is a substantial UK ex-pat population and almost everyone speaks English.
It sits next to the busy centre of Lagos, with its marina, fishing fleet, hospitals and quaint, if touristy, old town.
Luz boasts many tennis courts and water activities feature strongly in high season, some local, some by pre-arranged transport.
The area is a golfers’ paradise and there are nine water/amusement parks along the Algarve and also several large shopping malls.
The ancient parts of Portimao, Lagoa, Silves, Albufeira and Quarteira will beg to be explored, as will the nature reserve of Sagres to the West.
The A22 motorway (electronic tolls) is a fast and easy way of moving through the Algarve. The N125 which is the free alternative, has an appalling reputation for accidents, particularly further to the east.
