About Fiona Harris

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.

Fiona Harris purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Fiona Harris chose Luz

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!

What makes this apartment unique

Stunning roof terrace.

Right in the heart of town.

Such a short stroll to the beach.

Well situated apartment with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Lots of space and great sea views from the balcony which had the sun every morning for an outdoor breakfast. Centrally located for all amenities and thoroughly enjoyed Luz as a place to stay.

Lovely spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Luz and the apartment was in a good location for the beach and local restaurants. Due to bedrooms being right on the road side and the restaurant underneath noise levels were quite high sometimes.

Owner's Response: Hi Nikki, I am so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at Apt Azul. Yes it is true that there is some road noise from the cobbled street below and this won't suit guests who are very nose sensitive, but most like yourselves whilst noticing it are not disturbed by it. Diners leaving the restaurant can likewise sometimes be a little noisy shouting their goodbyes. I quite enjoy watching them come and go and all diners are usually gone well before midnight so this should only be an issue for anyone going to bed early. I hope we might welcome you back again sometime. Fiona

The apartment is great, spacious and bright.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well equipped, comfortable, well located, with good terraces, just a little noisy because the cobblestone street. All shops and services are nearby, as the beach (Luz is a small town)

We fail to operate the television (the picture looks green) but it was not a priority for us, so we did not use. Upon arrival we found the glass broken coffee, they promised to bring us another, but it was not, however was not a problem. The main bed is a bit overdue toward the middle, but still quite comfortable.

Except those little details (which remarked if you are interested), the apartment is fine.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am pleased that you enjoyed another holiday at Apt Azul. I'm not sure what the problem you had with the TV was, but I am sure it could have been remedied had you reported it. as you say because it was not important to you, you didn't let us know. I. Not sure what you mean about the bed, but I am pleased it was comfortable. I hope we might welcome you back for a third holiday at Apt Azul in the future.

A fantastic gem of an apartment in Luz.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a six week stay in Apartamento Azul and had a fantastic time. We did not wish to leave. The apartment is very centrally located. It is spacious, very well equipped with everything you need for a perfect holiday and it is beautifully clean and comfortable.

There are three balconies and it is just bliss sitting on one of them for breakfast in the sunshine. You have views of the sea and cliffs and there is a well maintained pool which would be perfect in the Summer. The roof terrace has panoramic views and loungers and is a real sun trap!

A maid comes in regularly and changes the sheets and towels and cleans. Soon after you arrive, Nicola from the management agency pops in to check that you have all you need and is on hand to answer any questions. We have stayed in Vila Margarida, also owned by Fiona Harris, so when we decided to stay in the apartment for the first time , we had every confidence that it would be as described in the listings. ( We are always a bit nervous when we book accommodation through the internet).

Luz itself is so pretty and unspoilt, with a sandy beach, promenade, good cafés and restaurants, as well as a few shops for provisions. Indeed, you can walk down from the apartment and go into a couple of very good restaurants, Ondaluz and Chicca's.

We can recommend the apartment wholeheartedly and cannot wait to return.

Great location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Apartamento Azul and it did not disappoint. The location is great - only a few minutes walk to anywhere in the town but far enough away from the central bars and restaurants not to be troubled by late night noise. The only slight disadvantage is that it is directly on R. Direita so traffic can be a bit noisy at times but this was not an issue during the times we were there. Also being out of season we did not need to use the provided car park spaces as there was always room to park in the street but I can imagine this is a godsend during high season. As it is on the second floor and there is no lift, it would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues but the benefit is that it is well above the street and means you get a good view from the balconies.

The apartment is in the same block as the Onda Luz restaurant which is also a big plus as it serves excellent food and appeared to be the busiest restaurant in town when we were there.

The apartment is a very good size and is also well equipped, with everything we needed for our walking holiday. During our visit the pool was out of use but this was not really a problem in February(!) and I understand it has now been repaired. I would definitely consider staying there again.

Großzügige Wohnung, prima eingerichtet und Balkon mit Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit in Luz. Der Ort ist angenehm klein, alles prima erreichbar, am schönen Strand ist man in 5 Minuten.

Die Wohnung bietet alles was man braucht, inclusive Parkplatz für das Auto.

Großzügig geschnittene Wohnung mit riesigem Wohnzimmer, mit zwei großen Schlafzimmern und zwei Badezimmern. Drei Balkone in unterschiedliche Richtungen je nach dem, ob man Sonne oder Schatten möchte.

Man merkt, dass die Wohnung auch selbst genutzt wird, da sie sehr gut ausgestattet ist. Sowohl in der Küche ist alles was man braucht. DVDs, Bücher und diverse (englischsprachige) TV-Sender bieten an Regentagen oder Abenden Unterhaltung.

Praia da Luz is a great family resort towards the western end of the Algarve coast. It has a lovely sandy beach approximately half a mile long and backed by a palm tree lined promenade. At the eastern end of the beach there are spectacular cliffs and at low tide there are rock pools that adults and children alike will love to explore. Praia da Luz has plenty of restaurants which range from cafes and beach bars through bar/restaurants and bistros to plush restaurants. There are several supermarkets, shops and boutiques, a chemist, bank, internet café, post office and a medical centre where good English is spoken.

The lovely town marina and beaches of Lagos are only a 10 min drive.

Within 30 mins drive are surf beaches,water parks,castles,marine parks and zoos and a large modern shopping centre.

Golf: The Algarve is world renowned for its golf courses and you will be spoilt for choice!There are numerous excellent golf courses within a 30 minute drive,including Penina and Parque de Floresta. The closest course, Boavista is located a 5 minute drive away between Lagos and Praia da Luz and part of the course can be seen from the front balcony and roof terrace.

The apartment has a locked 2 car garage within the secure ground floor communal garage so there is plenty of space to store clubs, etc.. There is also ample space for this within the apartment itself if you prefer.
