Located in a tasteful quiet small condominium of just 7 apartments with a beautiful private garden with huge palm trees, outstanding sun deck and pool, this property has a privileged 1st floor setting with fantastic panoramic sea views.
The living and dining area, very bright and spacious, are equipped with a round table and 6 high chairs, 2 comfortable sofas (one of which can be turned into a double bed), satellite TV, Video and DVD player, and lead on to a fantastic balcony furnished with a table and 4 chairs, where you can enjoy unforgettable al fresco dinners or just relax looking at the garden and pool, the ocean or the picturesque village and its remarkable Black Rock.
From the master bedroom, with its own little balcony, you have also an amazing view and you can enjoy the changing colors of the sea from your bed. One twin bedroom, a fully equipped and functional kitchen and laundry, plus a complete bathroom, make up for the rest of this very pleasant and charming place.
Our location, just about 1.5 km from the village center and beach, gives you the advantage of peace and quiet but ensures also a very easy access to all the usual attractions.
If you enjoy walking, you can reach the beach in about 15 min, along a scenic path on the verge of the low cliffs leading to Praia da Luz.
The ocean shore is just 350 meters away from our refreshing swimming pool and should you prefer to walk in the direction of Burgau and Sagres, the eastern limit of the Vicentine Coast Natural Reserve is a mere 500 meters from our property.
If you prefer sightseeing and visiting around, we strongly recommend Lagos, Sagres, the Atlantic beaten Western desert beaches, Silves and the Monchique mountain and why not, even the frantic Albufeira.
In case you would rather engage in nature related activities the choice is enormous:
- Dolphin encounters, boat rides on the amazing caves of Ponta da Piedade, paragliding, horse riding, golfing, surfing, sailing, water skiing and other water sports are all available within easy reach.
A certified PADI diving school is open all year round in Praia da Luz and you have a diving spot just in front of our property, the so called Pedra da Gaivota, an open lagoon, 8 to 12 meters deep.
For more excitement you can choose Sagres or Ponta da Piedade and engage on cave, wreck and night dives. The waters around Sagres and Cape St. Vincent, where the colder waters of the Atlantic meet the warmer Mediterranean currents, are among the best in Europe for big-game fishing.
Algarve is known as the golfer’s paradise, the choice of top quality golf courses is tremendous and, within a short distance, you can choose at least 3 of them: Boavista (6 km); Palmares (13 km) and Parque da Floresta (10 km).
Algarve is a great place also for winter or low season escapes / long term stays, if you want to run away from the depressing dark and wet chilly days from Northern places.
Boasting fantastic weather, one of the best in Europe, with an average of 3,000 sunshine hours per year, Praia da Luz and Lagos are not at all deserted places in low season. You will find most of the restaurants open and plenty of activity and entertainment.
The master bedroom is also equipped with a large built in wardrobe, a small desk and a bed side table.
The second twin bedroom is furnished with a bed side table and another built in wardrobe....moreless

Within an easy 60 min drive from Faro Airport, along the A22, this fantastic seafront apartment is uniquely situated at the edge of the Vicentine Coast Natural Reserve, yet just 5 min drive away from the lovely blue flag sandy beach of Praia da Luz, where you can find everything you need for a perfect holiday.

Within less than 15 km you can reach 3 World Class Golf Courses; Boavista, the closest, is less than 10 min by car.
Within a short distance are several other excellent beaches such as Praia D. Ana, Burgau, Salema or, if you prefer surfing or wild landscapes, you can easily reach, the spectacular Arrifana and Carrapateira on the West Coast.
Sagres with its amazing cliffs and Cape St. Vincent are as well close (30 km) and worth a visit.
Don’t miss also the exceptional caves and rock formations at Ponta da Piedade, only 10 km away.
Year Purchased: 2011
Why the Owner Chose Burgau: We bought the property in December 2011 and we decided we would rent it to help cover the maintenance costs and avoid having it empty for extended periods of time.
In Praia da Luz we have an agreement with a professional agency http://algarve-propertymanagement.com/index.html that takes care of everything for us while we are not there. They maintain the apartment, clean it and provide any assistance needed.
The apartment is in fact very nice and the location is just fantastic. We were considering buying another one, just in the village center and very close to the beach but, when we visited this one, we fell completely in love with the views and the peace and quiet of the location. On the other hand you are just a few minutes away from it all.
