The Area: Praia Da Luz, Western Algarve
Praia da Luz is arguably one of the prettiest beaches in the Western Algarve, sporting the european blue flag, and classified as accessible with ramps and walkways and facilities for the disabled. East are picturesque rocky coves and the long sandy crescent of Meia Praia at Lagos, within 10 minutes drive. 15 minutes West are the resort beaches of Burgau and Salema, and further again are a multitude of beaches frequented by surfers, Spectacular and less busy but not so safe for small children.
Faro is the nearest airport at only a 1 hour drive away. Praia da Luz beach 70m. Historic town of Lagos 8 mins by car. Cape St Vincent 30 mins by car.
The villa is centrally placed and within walking distance to all village amenities which include post office, bank, cash dispensing machines, several supermarkets, pharmacy, English-speaking doctors surgery and dentist. Zoomarine dolphin park and Slide and Splash water park provide coach transport from Luz. Anglican church services are held on Sunday in the local church. Tennis is widely available, including lessons and friendly tournaments. There are two water-sport centres on the beach providing everything from banana boat rides, to sailing lessons, to fishing excursions. From Lagos you can try parasailing, deep-sea fishing, dolphin safari, or visit the grottos by fishing boat. There are several surf centers offering day trips to wherever the waves are best on the day, wetsuits, equipment and instruction as required. Luz can offer truly international cuisine in a wide choice of cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and occasions. Many are family friendly and also offer a takeaway service. For a change of scene we recommend an evening out in the historic town of Lagos. The 8 minute taxi ride is inexpensive - let us book for you and just sit back and enjoy the local wines. For younger children there are kids activities available in the village.

We had the pleasure to stay in both the Penthouse and The Folly during our two week vacation.
The owners have thought of everything! Both properties fitted to a high standard, everything you need to hand and total relaxation is guaranteed.
The location is ideal less than a stones throw away from the beach, restaurants and local amenities. The booking process from beginning to end is made very easy by Catherine the owner.
We would highly recommend a stay at either property and hope to return very very soon!!..
Thank you kindly.......
