Stunning views, fabulous apartment!
Lovely,clean, bright apartment with everything you need. As a personal choice though, I would've liked air conditioning in the bedroom rather than the lounge. The views from the balcony were fantastic. There are some great walks along the cliffs to explore. And a bus ride away from the bustling town of Lagos. There are loads of fab restaurants and cafes in both Luz and Lagos. We didn't have a car but the 15min walk into Luz didn't bother us, although it's quite a pull up the hill back with groceries!
Richard was extremely accommodating and helpful.
Perfect apartment with Stunning views 👌🏻
The apartment was superb, clean modern & very well furnished. The view was beautiful & all within a short walk to the beach, shops & restaurants. The pool area is very impressive our children had hours of fun . The apartment is very well maintained with all the amenities you could need to ensure a comfortable stay. Looking to book again for next year, can’t wait to go back would highly recommend. 👌🏻
Disappointing for us but much potential for a great holiday
The apartment, the pool, the location and the views are all amazingly great. It could have been a great holiday.
However, the apartment next door is currently being renovated, so from 0830 to around 1800 there was constant banging, drilling, sawing, unrelenting noise that just goes straight through you. If that wasn't bad enough, after a few days the apartment below began laying new floor tiles, more banging, sawing, cutting etc.
And, the whole apartment block was being painted, whilst that wasn't noisy, it didn't look good and we felt we were holidaying on a building site.
We lasted as long as we could but ended up moving for our last 3 days to Estrela De Luz aparthotel following recommendation from Richard, the owner, who was very apologetic and refunded over half our money, he'd been told the noisy building work was over. Our view? We should have been told beforehand and given the option to cancel our booking and with the benefit of hindsight, we definitely would have.
GREAT! the Location! the Views! the Unit! the Host!
What a find!
1) The Location: Luz is our idea of a perfect local! 1 hour west of Faro in a small town within a few minutes of all sort of fabulous sites! Sarges is only 20-30 minutes west!
We prefer small villages and towns where one can get around without trouble, without traffic lights, walk if we chose! And Luz fit the bill perfectly!
WE love Baptista Market .. just 5 minutes by car or if you go the uphill way about 20 minutes of slightly-challenging walk ..... BUT NOT SO FAST .... there is an easier walk! .... AND Baptista has an off-sight FISH MARKET, just across the parking lot of the market with a fish-monger, par-excellent!
Try the custard tarts .... can you eat just one?
2) the Views: WOW! the views from the balcony are spectacular: 1st the pool area; then you overlook magazine-worthy villas (two new ones just below @ about 3.5- 4 Million pounds sterling); the the ocean; to the left huge cliffs which change constantly as the light and shade change. WOW! WAlk the trails along the ocean - PERFECTION!
3) the Unit: the unit is totally equipped! Everything we required was there and more!
4) the Host: Accommodating and more! as a previous renter mentioned, the neighbours were renovating which during the day-time and only during a day and a half of our stay, creating a vibrating din!!! (BTW ... Richard's neighbours arrived and informed us that none of the neighbours had been given fore-warning of this renovation!) BUT ... Richard made it right by sending us out to dinner at his expense!!!! OH- OH gotta mention this one: Fortaleza da Luz, one incredible restaurant!
We loved this spot and would return in a heartbeat!
Well equipped very spacious beautiful view
Unfortunately upon arriving at the apartment we realised that the adjoining flat was being totally refurbished so we suffered from 11 hours of building work a day! Richard, the owner, was great and immediately reimbursed us some of the rental so I won’t let that cloud my judgement. The property itself is situated in the suburbs of Luz and would normally be very quiet and surrounded by large villas (some still being built which is worth checking) and lush gardens. It’s quite a walk into Luz which was a struggle with a 2 and 7 year old and worth bearing in mind (there is plenty of parking in Luz if your not drinking). The pool was too cold for us but the weather wasn’t great and looks like it would be good closer to the main season. I’ve never stayed in such a well appointed holiday let - it had everything, it is furnished to a very high standard and is very spacious with a good sized terrace/balcony and another smaller one off the main bedroom all showcasing the apartments best feature which is the view of the ocean. I have really struggled with whether or not to give 5 stars but I think the unseasonably cold/wet weather and building work won’t allow me to! The flat itself probably deserves 5 stars so perhaps the loss of one is due to there being inconsiderate neighbours who choose to carry out building work during the Easter holidays!! Richard was also very helpful, quick to respond and friendly. John and family.
The property was everything as advertised but better and the location was perfect
Perfect for our needs could not have been happier
