We live in Exeter Devon. Although we come from a beautiful part of the UK we enjoy relaxing and holidaying in Luz 3 or 4 times a year with friends and family.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Owner chose Luz
Vilamar is an extension of our home in Devon. We love the peaceful location,wonderful beaches and friendly people.It's close proximity to the local Restaurants,Bars and shops in Luz. We visited Luz in 1979 and always hoped one day we would be able to buy a property there. When we decided to purchase a holiday home there was no question where it was going to be 'LUZ'.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is in a small complex with wonderful views of the Ocean and coastline from the terrace. It has a restaurant and bar on site for those quiet lazy nights in or a short walk to the restaurants & bars in Luz. Lagos town is a short drive with it's shops, restaurants and marina.

lovely place for our holidays
we - 2 adults and a 12-years old - stayed for 10 days in august 2018 and had a wonderful time. the apartment was as described and simply perfect for us. we didn't use the kitchen much because we could never ever beat that grilled fish in all the restaurants in luz and lagos and burgau but it's fully equipped if one should ever feel like cooking.
on arrival we had a nice little note from tanya who takes care of the apt. and stayed in touch loosely throughout.
the apt. belongs to a nice little mixed hotel/residential with a garden and pool and another pool for the little children. the pool belongs to the hotel and you're not allowed to bring your own drinks or food to the pool but have to buy it at the bar. the bar is very reasonably priced though. hotel staff is also very friendly.
the apt. is a 10-15 minutes walk from the center and beach of luz. there you find shops, restaurants, bars, quite a long sandy beach and even with so many tourists in august it does stay relaxed. if you like traditional, regional food but with a modern twist, you should definitely try "a fabrica" restaurant. lagos is around 7 km away. there are so many beautiful beaches for all tastes around. we simply went to another beach every day. coming back late in the evenings we sat down on the upper balkony with a local wine and watched the stars and in the morning that was where we went first to have this view of the sea and the pool and the palm trees and the blue sky. simply wonderful.
The safe sandy beach at Praia da Luz, is 1km away- and about 15 minutes walk. Easily accessible by car. There are other beaches within driving distance including those at Lagos and Burgau.
Faro Airport is 1hrs drive from the Apartment and linked by motorway making it easy to get to the resort of Praia da Luz. There are car hire facilities at the airport if required. Cheap flights to and from Faro Airport are available.
A bus and train service is also located at the Airport.
Praia da Luz is 1km from Vilamar and 5kms from the historical town of Lagos, where within driving distance you can reach the Zoo, Waterparks, Marina (great for Dolphin watching), the Monchique Mountains (perfect for walking and horse riding) and the West Coast- ideal for surfing.
Praia Da Luz has many shops, restaurants and cafes. Also local facilities such as Doctors, Banks, Chemist, Supermarkets and local transport.
