We hold an official Portuguese tourist license 6431/AL. The apartment is situated at the Western edge of the unspoilt fishing village of Santa Luzia and a short drive to the historical and beautiful town of Tavira. This prime location is peaceful and very close to one of the best beaches on the Eastern Algarve. From the apartment it is a short walk to the village centre with its wonderful seafood restaurants that line the waters edge. The first floor apartment was built in 2006 and has a contemporary feel. The kitchen and lounge have floor to ceiling windows and shutters that run across the entire front of the apartment. These open directly on to a good sized private balcony, with uninterrupted views of the countryside and sea waters of the Ria Formosa, a nature reserve that is a haven for wildlife. In the evening you can watch the most glorious sunsets over the mountains. The apartment is only 8km from Junction 16 of the A22 motorway, 35km from Faro and within 10km of excellent golf courses.
Local amenities: The water shoot park in Loule is only 35min away and is great fun, You can also Swim with the Dolphins at Zoomarine!
We have a number of excellent markets nearby (a detailed list will be in the apartment) where you can pick up some real bargains. There is an interesting car-boot near the beach of Fuzeta where you will find some unusual items. Ayamonte, 20 min (the Spanish border) town has a similar market every Saturday.
Tourist resort towns with entertainment, bars, restaurants and casinos only a 10 - 40 minute drive away (depending which town you would like to visit). Finally, for those of you who do not want to just stay on the beach and want to see more of the original Algarve then a circular drive through Moncarapacho, Estói, Olhão and Tavira is well worth doing, with the A22 link this makes a good half day visit.
Golf: Not only has the Algarve the best golfing climate in Europe it also has some of the best courses and facilities.
To the West, Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo courses are within 30 min of the Apartment and Vilamoura a further 15 min further on.
Benamor, Quinta de Cima and the Quinta de Ria are within 10 minutes and Castro Marim a further 15 minutes.
