Perfect apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying in this beautiful apartment, so much so my children did not want to leave! The apartment is so much bigger than I thought, it's beautifully decorated and really felt like a home from home! Brian made the booking really stress free and was so helpful and friendly. The pools were fantastic and having a great sized kids pool was great for my 3 year old who was happy being able to stand in it. The location is perfect and only a 5-10 min walk to the beach which is stunning! We absolutely fell in love with Praia da Luz and this apartment so much so that I am already looking to book up again for next year!

A spacious, comfortable and well laid out apartment in a lovely complex.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our party of 5. The pool area is lovely with two good size pools and plenty of loungers. It's in a quiet location but is only a quick walk to the seafront. Lots of parking on site. We love Luz anyway but this apartment really made our holiday. Brian was also really efficient and helpful throughout - thank you.

Lovely apartment in Praia Da Luz

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment located near to the promenade and beach. The local shops are a short walk away. The apartment has wifi and a good tv system with all the English channels. It also has a selection of books and DVDs. It's clean, spacious and comfortable. The communal pool is a good size with lots of sunbeds around it. There are lots of places to visit around Praia Da Luz, like Lagos, which is just a short drive away and many beaches, like Burgau. The owner was very professional with the booking and was a great help with local restaurants and recommending things to do in the area.

Beautiful apartment in a very nice area

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay with 4 childrens in the apartment. It is really clean and well equipped with all you need for a relaxed holiday. Especially the area around the pool is very nice and the children loved to be there every day. The distance to the beach, restaurants or supermarket are only a few minutes and also the beach ist really great . Also the contact with the owner was really nice. We could recommend it and I am sure we will come back again.

Wir hatten einen tollen Urlaub im Appartment mit 4 Kindern, Das Appartment ist angenehm groß, sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet mit allem, was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub braucht. Besonders der Pool hat den Kindern sehr gut gefallen, es gab jederzeit ausreichend Liegen und Schirme. Restaurants, Supermarkt und auch der Strand sind in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen. Der Strand ist sehr schön und sauber.

Wir können das Appartment sehr weiterempfehlen und werden sicher wieder hinfahren.

Auch der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war sehr nett.

Great apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this apartment. I have stayed there twice with my 2 teenagers and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment is very spacious and clean, a home away from home. The pool area is lovely, with a kids' pool also. It's in a really nice locality, only a short walk through the village to the promenade and beach. I would love to go back again, if you choose this apartment you won't be disappointed!

Located in the coastal village of Praia da Luz, a picturesque village with small streets, sweeping down to a fabulous beach and seafront. Lots of restaurants within a 10 to 15 minute walk. The village is just a 10 minute drive from the lovely and historic town of Lagos which bustles with activity in the summer months and with a wide range of restaurants and night-life to choose from.

Just a short drive to a number of golf courses, as well as superb surfing beaches on the south-west coast and the historic fort and lighthouse in the town of Sagres.
