The apartment is centrally located in the fishing village of Praia Da Luz which means 'beach of light' and is a few kilometers west of the historic town of Lagos. Further west are several old, easily accessible fishing villages until you come to Sagres and cape St. Vincent which is the the furthest point of land in western Europe. Almost all the pubs and restaurants stay open all year and provide wonderful drinks and meals to suit all tastes both Portuguese and European and are just a few minutes walk away. This is an ideal location for winter breaks as well as summer holidays.

Pria da Luz is a wonderful village with many ex-pats living there happily amongst the local people. The location is perfect for relaxed holidays. We also accept payments by Paypal if you use the 'friends and family' option to save charges. Pay to

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We loved the spacious all round garden with numerous fruit trees and the white tiles on all floors. It feels so homely, bright and welcoming just walking through the front door and the steel retractable shutters give perfect security. Access to Luz Ocean Club pools included.
