Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Our family has been holidaying in Praia da Luz since the late 1970s and we love the resort and the area. In 2000 we were lucky enough to buy a villa in Luz, Vila Margarida which we also rent out. We wanted another smaller place nearby, both to use ourselves when travelling as a couple without the whole family, but also when we had groups renting Vila Margarida who needed more accommodation and saw the brand new development in the Rua Direita and snapped up Apartamento Azul.
Why the Owner Chose Lagos: Its a great setting, right in the heart of Praia da Luz. We love the apartment and really enjoy our stays there, its so central and I love sitting on the front balcony watching the world go by. The roof terrace is the icing on the cake! Its a fabulous spot to sunbathe and enjoy the gorgeous views!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Stunning roof terrace.
Right in the heart of town.
Such a short stroll to the beach.
