Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Luz - St James' Apartment 3071/AL

2 Bedrooms & 2 bathrooms. Sleeps 5 (fold away bed for 5th person)@ NO extra cost

This is a superb, fully air-conditioned, spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in the St James complex in Praia da Luz. The huge balcony can be accessed from both bedrooms & lounge via patio doors, allowing all guests to enjoy the delights of Algarve outdoor living. The St James complex provides a children's play area and both adults' & children's pools all set in landscaped gardens. Alternatively, if you are feeling a little more energetic, you could stroll down to the blue-flag beach or visit the many varied shops and wonderful restaurants and bars that the charming village of Luz has to offer. For golfers, there are 4 golf courses between a 5 and 20 minute drive of the apartment and the beaches of the western Algarve are famous for both surfing and fishing.

Praia da Luz Beach: A short 10min walk from the apartment brings you to the gently shelving Luz beach, with soft golden sands. The remnants of volcanic activity from long ago can been seen at the far end of the beach, know locally as the Rocha Negra or 'Black Rock'.

Rock pools and a beach-front restaurant, complete with children’s play area make the beach a great place for all the family!

Activities / Things to do: From Luz, there are day trip coaches to the water parks (Aqualand is one) and the Dolphin park (Zoomarine), and many other attractions in the Algarve.

Surfing, sailing, fishing and scuba-diving trips can be booked for departure from Luz or nearby Lagos.

Travel Arrangements: The apartment is c.80km/50miles from Faro airport and travel time should take about 50min-1hour. Full directions can be found on our website. You don't need a car to get to or travel around Luz as bus and taxi services operate to and from Luz and Faro airport. Car hire is available in the town for those who wish to explore the Algarve.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi David

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your apartment.



It is a lovely area and a lovely apartment, and we all wished we were staying longer!



The weather as you may have heard was very hot even by Portuguese standards, so at least we were prepared for England's heatwave!



I do hope all was well with the apartment on our departure



Regards

Spacious apartment with everything you need. Great for a family or 2 couples. Walk to the beautiful beach and grocery. Our family loved it - would love to come back for longer than 4 nights.

An excellent apartment in a really nice complex.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Luz numerous times but this was our first stay in this apartment/complex & we genuinely thought it was excellent. The apartment is bright, spacious & spotless. The balcony really is fantastic.....it's huge & gets the sun for practically the whole day. The pool area was really nice, busy enough throughout our stay but we still managed to get sunbeds & there was a nice atmosphere about the place.

The wifi in the apartment is also excellent & the android tv box was a big hit with our teenage kids .

There's an Italian restaurant just below the complex which also does takeaways & a small supermarket just up the road.

The apartment is also in a really good location, literally a few minutes walk into the centre of things & also only short stroll to the beach.

I would honestly highly recommend the apartment to anyone who is planning to visit Praia da Luz.....you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic apartment in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at the St James Apartments in Praia da Luz. The apartment was really comfortable and had everything we needed and more!

Praia da Luz is a lovely little town and there is so much to do. The apartment is only 5 mins walk from the beautiful beach where you can relax or do something a bit different such as jet skiing or going on a boat trip to watch the dolphins in their natural environment.

There are lots of lovely restaurants in the town but there's also a couple of well stocked supermarkets in town should you decide to stay in and cook for yourself.

A lovely apartment and a great location. What more could you ask for??

My son and I had the most perfect holiday.The apartment made it extra special.It was spotlessly clean and in a convenient position to access local transport and only a short walk into Luz. Will definitely go back next year.

Praia da Luz is a beach destination in the Algarve, at just under one hours easy drive from Faro airport. The development of the town is mostly low rise apartments and villas of all sizes, and the facilities are mainly aimed at family holidays, although suitable for people of all ages. There is a great variety of family friendly restaurants and bars, good shops and supermarkets and all the amenities for a complete holiday. There is a beautiful sandy beach perfect for sun bathing and water sports, and Luz beach sports the European blue flag indicating clean sand and clean water. To the east of town you find some spectacular cliffs and among them the prominent black rock Rocha Negra. This is an intrusion of lava produced from the volcanoes of Monchique some 190 million to 135 million years ago. Luz is just 8 minutes west of the larger historic town of Lagos which is provides great sightseeing, plenty of shopping, good night life, and a large established marina.

Golf: For golfers, there are 4 golf courses within 5 - 20 minutes drive from the apartment.
