How to get there: Fly to Faro airport - a number of UK airlines fly direct including Monarch, EasyJet, TAP and British Airways. The flight takes about 3 hours and Portugal is in the same time zone as the UK. There are lots of flights every day.

It takes about 1 hour to reach the villa by car, either in a taxi (about Euro 70) or renting a car - Hertz, Sixt, Europcar and others are available from Faro airport. The motorway from Faro to Lagos is fast and quiet, and the majority of the journey is on this road. A train service also operates from Faro to Lagos.

In the summer peak season its best to arrange car rental before you arrive.

Lisbon and Sevilha are a 3 hour car journey.

Blokarting - Try the newest sport to hit the Algarve near Sagres - on a 3-wheeled go-kart with a sail attached to catch the wind - is exciting and exhilarating

From Luz there are daytrip coaches to the water parks (Aqualand, Aquashow and Krazy World) and the Dolphin Park (ZoomMarine) as well as several museums invite to trips.

Gymnasiums and fitness centers all offering standard equipment. Pampering offer a variety of beauty treatment and alternative therapy salons.

Great location for a quiet break

  • 5 of 5

Very well presented villa with a great view, spacious throughout and very comfortable. We had a very relaxing time, pool a good size, sun and shade through the day.

The town has two good supermarkets with everything you’d need.

Quiet location perfect for a relaxing break, but only 5 mins walk from the town.

Would recommend a visit, easy to find and very helpful owners with recommendations for local restaurants and things to do.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great 2 week stay in your house in Praia da Luz. The house is in great "shape" and it was perfect for us as a family (2 adults and 2 children). We enjoyed both the local town and the surroundings. We enjoyed especial daytrips by car visiting several great beaches west of Praia da Luz. We would also recommend the Italian restaurant 5 minutes walking distance just down the road towards the town.

Praia da Luz
Car: recommended

The villa is 10 min walk from the promenade and lovely sandy beach of Praia de Luz, one of the best beaches in the Algarve. There is a wide range of leisure activities e.g. water sport activities, beachside cafes & bars, through small bistro type restaurants to fine dining (fresh fish). Very safe for children with added attraction of rock pools at one hand of the beach, plus a beach-front restaurant, completed with children’s play area makes it a great place for all the family! Water Parks, Surfing, sailing, fishing and scuba-diving trips can be booked for departure from Luz or nearby Lagos, next to the remarkable Marina. The beautiful rolling hills and spring of Monchique worth a visit, and so is Foia, the highest point in the Algarve, with spectacular views all the way to the sea! There is also a historic fortress at Cap St Vincent, Europe's most south westerly point. West Coast is ideal for Surfing Pros.

Other Activities: Wonderful cliff walks to the East towards Ponta da Piedade and to the West to the Atlantic Ocean unexplored Coast

Golf: Golfers flock to the Algarve all year round due to the mild winter climate, spectacular scenery and the manicured fairways and greens of many world class courses. None of the present courses are more than 15km away from the coast but vary greatly from the steep hillsides at Parque de Floresta to the flat terrain of Salgados, so whatever course you are looking for, the Algarve is sure to have it! Here is a brief summary of the courses nearest to Luz: Boavista - 5 minutes drive, par 71, handicap card required, views of Atlantic ocean and hills of Monchique. Tel. (UK) Tel: +44 (0) 1625 588 400 ; Tel. (PT) +351 282 000 111

Palmares - 10 minute drive, par 71, gentle slopes above an extensive beach. Tel: (+351) 282 76 89 59

Parque de Floresta - 15 minutes drive, par 72, rolling, hilly terrain. Tel: (+351) 282 690 054
