Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time with some lovely restaurants close by.

The beach is amazing, beautiful white sand you can either take a little train to it or a lovely walk maybe 20mins. There was everything we needed in the flat to make a comfortable stay.

Thank you

Beautiful apartment in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Santa Luzia, the apartment was a perfect size for the four of us and really clean and comfortable and Roy and Jo were so helpful, it really made a difference. The roof terrace is such a treat, it's so nice sitting out on a sunny evening or enjoying breakfast al fresco (what's Portuguese for Al fresco..?)

It's really close to the waterfront, catching the ferry to terra estreita beach or eating out. Santa Luzia is a gorgeous little town with a lot of nice bars and cafes and restaurants. Tavira is a 3km walk, there are supermarkets and shops there but it's a really lovely place, stunning to look at with a fascinating history. we walked there and got a taxi back a few times, you could walk both ways but it was very hot and a cab is c.€5, much cheaper than the UK. Tavira is well worth exploring and with several visits.

If you were unlucky with the weather there isn't much to do indoors locally, so in that situation you might want a car but generally if it's pretty warm then you'll be very happy at the beach or Tavira, and the apartment is the perfect family friendly place to do it from.

Hübsche und gut gelegene Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sehr geräumig und gut ausgestattet. Im ersten Stock befinden sich ein breiter Flur, eine große Küche (samt Gasherd, Backofen, Kühl-Tiefkühlschrank-Kombination, Mikrowelle, Toaster, Kaffemaschine und Waschmaschine) und ein helles und geräumiges Wohn- und Esszimmer (mit großem TV und DVD-Player). Im Stockwerk darüber befinden sich ein großes Doppelschlafzimmer mit eigenem Badezimmer (Dusche, WC), ein großes Schlafzimmer mit zwei Einzelbetten und ein weiteres Badezimmer mit Dusche/Badewanne/WC. Alle Zimmer sind mit geräumigen Einbauschränken und mit Klimaanlage ausgestattet. Vom zweiten Stockwerk hat man Zugang zur großen Dach-Terasse mit gemauertem Grill, großem Holztisch mit sechs Stühlen, zwei Liegen und großem Sonnenschirm. Letzterer ist auf dem Photo zu erkennen. Da die Brüstung gemauert und auch nicht zu niedrig ist, lässt sich dort auch im Januar ein windgeschütztes Sonnenfleckchen finden. Zwei Radiatoren und Wolldecken erleichtern einen Aufenthalt im Winter. Von der Terrasse hat man einen schönen Blick. Er reicht bis zur Lagune. Das Haus liegt zwar an einer Straßenecke, aber viel Verkehr ist dort nicht. Die eine Straße ist eine Einbahnstraße, über die man in zwei Minuten zu Fuß den Bäcker samt angeschlossenem Café und den kleinen Supermarkt erreicht. Santa Luzia ist ein hübscher Fischerort (bekannt für den Octopusfang) in der Nähe der malerischen Stadt Tavira. Hotelbauten oder riesige Appartmentanlagen findet man dort nicht. Von der Wohnung ist man zu Fuß oder mit dem Fahrrad (der Fernradweg Ecovia, der zu großen Teilen durch das Naturschutzgebiet Ria Formosa geht, führt durch Santa Luzia durch) in wenigen Minuten am hübschen Hafen von Santa Luzia und der Uferpromenade mit ihren Lokalen. Der Strand ist über eine Brücke über die Lagune zu erreichen, so dass man nicht auf einen Fährdienst angewiesen ist. Von der Brücke geht man ca einen Kilometer zu Fuß oder nutzt die kleine Bahn. Die Brücke ist von der Wohnung problemlos mit dem Fahrrad oder dem Auto zu erreichen. Auch zu Fuß sind die etwa zwei Kilometer machbar. Der Strand ist einmalig. Unberührte Natur, so weit das Auge reicht.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I have included a translation below. 'The apartment is very spacious and well equipped. On the first floor there is a wide hall, a large kitchen (including gas stove, oven, fridge-freezer combination, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and washing machine) and a bright and spacious living and dining room (with large TV and DVD player) , On the floor above there is a large double bedroom with en suite bathroom (shower, toilet), a large bedroom with two single beds and another bathroom with shower / bathtub / WC. All rooms are equipped with spacious fitted wardrobes and air conditioning. From the second floor you have access to the large roof terrace with brick barbecue, large wooden table with six chairs, two chairs and a large parasol. The latter can be recognised in the photo. As the parapet is bricked and not too low, you can find a wind-protected sunspot there in January. Two radiators and blankets make it easy to stay in winter. From the terrace you have a nice view. It reaches to the lagoon. The house is on a street corner, but there is not much traffic. One street is a one-way street, where you can walk to the bakery and café and small supermarket in two minutes. Santa Luzia is a pretty fishing village (known for the Octopus Catch) near the picturesque town of Tavira. Hotel buildings or huge apartment complexes can not be found there. From the apartment you can walk or bike (the bike path Ecovia, which goes largely through the nature reserve Ria Formosa, passes through Santa Luzia) in a few minutes at the beautiful harbour of Santa Luzia and the waterfront promenade with its pubs. The beach can be reached via a bridge over the lagoon, so you do not have to rely on a ferry service. From the bridge you walk about a km on foot or use the small train. The bridge can easily be reached from the apartment by bike or car. Even on foot, the about two km are feasible. The beach is unique. Untouched nature as far as the eye can see.'
