|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Located in a tasteful quiet small condominium of just 7 apartments with a beautiful private garden with huge palm trees, outstanding sun deck and pool, this property has a privileged 1st floor setting with fantastic panoramic sea views.
The living and dining area, very bright and spacious, are equipped with a round table and 6 high chairs, 2 comfortable sofas (one of which can be turned into a double bed), satellite TV, Video and DVD player, and lead on to a fantastic balcony furnished with a table and 4 chairs, where you can enjoy unforgettable al fresco dinners or just relax looking at the garden and pool, the ocean or the picturesque village and its remarkable Black Rock.
From the master bedroom, with its own little balcony, you have also an amazing view and you can enjoy the changing colors of the sea from your bed.
One twin bedroom, a fully equipped and functional kitchen and laundry, plus a complete bathroom, make up for the rest of this very pleasant and charming place.
Our location, just about 1.5 km from the village center and beach, gives you the advantage of peace and quiet but ensures also a very easy access to all the usual attractions.
If you enjoy walking, you can reach the beach in about 15 min, along a scenic path on the verge of the low cliffs leading to Praia da Luz.
The ocean shore is just 350 meters away from our refreshing swimming pool and should you prefer to walk in the direction of Burgau and Sagres, the eastern limit of the Vicentine Coast Natural Reserve is a mere 500 meters from our property.
If you prefer sightseeing and visiting around, we strongly recommend Lagos, Sagres, the Atlantic beaten Western desert beaches, Silves and the Monchique mountain and why not, even the frantic Albufeira.
In case you would rather engage in nature related activities the choice is enormous:
- Dolphin encounters, boat rides on the amazing caves of Ponta da Piedade, paragliding, horse riding, golfing, surfing, sailing, water skiing and other water sports are all available within easy reach.
A certified PADI diving school is open all year round in Praia da Luz and you have a diving spot just in front of our property, the so called Pedra da Gaivota, an open lagoon, 8 to 12 meters deep.
For more excitement you can choose Sagres or Ponta da Piedade and engage on cave, wreck and night dives.
The waters around Sagres and Cape St. Vincent, where the colder waters of the Atlantic meet the warmer Mediterranean currents, are among the best in Europe for big-game fishing.
Algarve is known as the golfer’s paradise, the choice of top quality golf courses is tremendous and, within a short distance, you can choose at least 3 of them: Boavista (6 km); Palmares (13 km) and Parque da Floresta (10 km).
Algarve is a great place also for winter or low season escapes / long term stays, if you want to run away from the depressing dark and wet chilly days from Northern places.
Boasting fantastic weather, one of the best in Europe, with an average of 3,000 sunshine hours per year, Praia da Luz and Lagos are not at all deserted places in low season. You will find most of the restaurants open and plenty of activity and entertainment.
We bought the property in December 2011 and we decided we would rent it to help cover the maintenance costs and avoid having it empty for extended periods of time.
In Praia da Luz we have an agreement with a professional agency http://algarve-propertymanagement.com/index.html that takes care of everything for us while we are not there. They maintain the apartment, clean it and provide any assistance needed.
The apartment is in fact very nice and the location is just fantastic. We were considering buying another one, just in the village center and very close to the beach but, when we visited this one, we fell completely in love with the views and the peace and quiet of the location. On the other hand you are just a few minutes away from it all.
Guest book review
We had an enjoyable stay in a great location!
The weather was wonderful (up to 30º) and the kids had a lot of fun.
Your apartment is great!
Now it goes back to our cold Germany, we're hoping to come back once.
We have stayed in the apartment with our three children for one week. Algarve is really beautiful, specially the wild western beaches and the climate, always sunny, but not too hot.
The children have spent all their time in the water (from the beach to the swimming pool).
The apartment is perfect, even better than the photographs. I´ve enjoyed my breakfasts in the terrace, in front of the sea. You don´t need to take anything, there is all you can need for your family vacations.
These have been one of our best holidays. The children are already planning to go back next year.
Beautiful apartment with everything you need, the location is superb with amazing views from the balcony and a 10-15 minute walk into Praia da Luz, which has a lovely beach and lots of nice restaurants.
The apartment is very bright and spacious with a great powerful shower and comfy bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need.
The pool area is lovely with your own sunbeds and an immaculately clean pool.
Highly recommended for a wonderful relaxing holiday😄
We, a family of four, the children 10 and 12 years old, spend 5 days in this beautiful Appartement. In reality the apartment is even better than the photos and the photos are excellent! The communication with Antonio was personal, welcoming and informative from the day we booked and until our stay was over. The information of how to get to the Appartement and how to get the keys was excellent- and worked out perfectly. The Appartement, situated in a nice and quiet area, is perfectly equipped, from all you need for cooking in the kitchen to the soft towels in the bathroom, even towels for using in the pool. All was clean and very well maintained. The interior is beautiful and personal and make you feel at home. The What we loved the most was the fabulous Oceanview from the balcony. We had all our meals there, even if there certainly are many nice restaurants around, but nothing could beat a barbecue on the balcony. The children loved swimming in the pool, that was clean and warm, and did that almost all the time. Except from when we were by the ocean or visiting nice places. The beach of Luz is near and is nice, but our favorite became the beach of Lagos, just 10 min by car.
There were guidebooks in the Appartement and Antonio had recommended us nice places to visit and the best supermarkets, that was very useful. We had rented a car and that was perfect for seeing all nice places nearby. The beauty of Algarve is really breathtaking in this area. Luz has for us a perfect size, small and charming and not to crowded, Lagos is also well worth a visit. More crowded but charming. The highlight for the children was swimming with dolphins at the park Zoomarine.
We are all in the family so happy for our stay here and we warmly recommend it to anyone, certainly families with children, it's just perfect. Thank you so much Antonio and Joanna for renting out your wonderful place - it made our Hollyday!
Best regards Hilde Rosell-Rivertz with family
We had a lovely, relaxing two week stay in this comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment. The sea views are amazing, the small complex is quiet, but only a brisk 20 minute walk to the village centre. The swimming pool is well maintained and each apartment has is own sun beds. We would not hesitate recommending this property ad have just booked again for next year.
Very clean and comfortable vacation home in Praia da Luz, nestled among several luxurious vacation homes. The pictures are completely accurate. The view from the balcony is spectacular, day and night. The property is a short distance from the beach and its many amenities, Lagos, Sagres and the surrounding villages; very easy to get around in the area. Praia da Luz is quiet with a very comfortable feeling about it; not too crowded; a very pleasant area. The owner and property manager were responsive and helpful; property is recommended to other travelers.
We would recommend this place to everyone.
A beautiful, very clean and complete appartment with a breathtaking vieuw.
If possible we would love to go again !!
The place itself; the surroundings, my daughters loved Lagos, the pool ; great holiday .
Thanks so much to the owners to give this place for rent .
Within an easy 60 min drive from Faro Airport, along the A22, this fantastic seafront apartment is uniquely situated at the edge of the Vicentine Coast Natural Reserve, yet just 5 min drive away from the lovely blue flag sandy beach of Praia da Luz, where you can find everything you need for a perfect holiday.
The charming historic town of Lagos, with its cobbled streets, bars, restaurants, shops and modern marina, is only a 10 min drive away.
Within less than 15 km you can reach 3 World Class Golf Courses; Boavista, the closest, is less than 10 min by car.
Within a short distance are several other excellent beaches such as Praia D. Ana, Burgau, Salema or, if you prefer surfing or wild landscapes, you can easily reach, the spectacular Arrifana and Carrapateira on the West Coast.
Sagres with its amazing cliffs and Cape St. Vincent are as well close (30 km) and worth a visit.
Don’t miss also the exceptional caves and rock formations at Ponta da Piedade, only 10 km away.
