Burgau apartment description

A modern, luxury apartment, in the picturesque village of Luz. The stunning beach, restaurants and shops are all within a 10 minute walk, and golfers have a choice of 4 major courses within a 20 minute drive. St James caters for everyone, with a large adult swimming pool, separate children's pool, playground and on-site mini mart and snack bar/restaurant. The apartment (which is situated on the 1st floor- the middle row in the photos) has two balconies capturing all day sun, with stunning views of either Luz village or the swimming pools and landscaped gardens of the complex. There is also a bathroom, separate shower room, free sky TV channels, stereo and the all important dishwasher! A wonderful apartment, and the perfect location, to do as little or as much as you like!


Getting around: The nearest airport is Faro which is just a 50 minute drive down the A22 motorway. If you plan to hire a car (recommended if you plan to do a lot of sight-seeing and/or golfing), you will find many car hire firms at the airport. Alternatively, a taxi will cost around £50 each way, or if you prebook with a company (such as Resorthoppa) you can get a private transfer for about £40 per person return. Once in Luz everything you need is within walking distance, but if you wish to travel around and see some of the other spectacular sights in the Algarve, there is a regular bus service and a taxi stand situated 100m away from the apartment.

Places to visit: Luz is the ideal place from which to explore the Western Algarve, and beyond, as the new A22 motorway makes the whole of the Algarve easily accessible. Lagos has lovely boutiques and restaurants, plus dolphin watching, grotto trips and surfing excursions available at the marina. The beautiful rolling hills and spring in Monchique are definitely worth a visit, and so is Foia, the highest point in the Algarve, with spectacular views all the way to the sea! There is also a historic fortress at Cape St Vincent, the well renowned beach of Praia da Rocha, three huge waterparks (the nearest in Lagoa) and the Algarves very own party capital - Albufeira, all within a 30 minute drive. Plus much much more!

Golf information: Golfers flock to the Algarve all year round due to the mild winter climate, spectacular scenery and the manicured fairways and greens of many world class courses. None of the present courses are more than 15km away from the coast but vary greatly from the steep hillsides at Parque de Floresta to the flat terrain of Salgados, so whatever course you are looking for, the Algarve is sure to have it!

Here is a brief summary of the courses nearest to Luz:
*BOAVISTA - 5 minutes drive, par 71, handicap card required, views of Atlantic ocean and hills of Monchique. *PALMARES - 10 minutes drive, par 71, gentle slopes above an extensive beach. *PARQUE DE FLORESTA - 15 minutes drive, par 72, rolling, hilly terrain. *PENINA - 20 minutes drive, par 73, handicap card required, leafy with large water hazards.
