My husband David and I are English, however, we have recently moved to Switzerland where my husband works for Roche Pharmaceuticals. We enjoy visiting different countries in Europe both on business and on holidays. As we have moved to Switzerland we are currently learning German. I speak some Spanish and French also. We enjoy travelling, beautiful scenery, and outdoor activities.
Celia purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Celia chose Luz
We bought this property in 2014 as we were so impressed with the extremely high standards of the buildings, resort and facilities. We also found the location to be excellent -not having to get in the car and just walk to the local shops, restuarants, and beach makes an easy holiday. We also like the local town of Lagos which is a bigger town and a quick trip in the car 8mins, or a short bus ride from Luz. This gives us extended shopping, marina trips, history and architecture all of which we enjoy. I should also mention we took up golf in 2012 and have found excellent golfing facilities within 5 mins from the apartment. We felt that this apartment genuinely offered the best of all worlds being a beach apartment but also providing as with a Winter sun destination with all year round activities and a lively town and village.
What makes this Apartment unique
- pristine resort with outstanding service levels - plenty of outside apartment space with 3 large terraces - exceptional location providing the best of both worlds - quiet location yet easy reach to everything - good choice of restaurants and extensive facilities - heated outdoor pool for "winter Sunshine" visits - high-quality interior, fixtures, and furnishings - area of outstanding beauty - nearby first-rate golf courses

Beautiful suite and excellent location
Celia was responsive to all of our queries and allowed us the flexibility to extend our visit. The suite was even better than advertised. We will be back.
We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and got to stay a few extra days. We look forwarding to hosting a future visit.

Fab apartment in Luz
We have been to Luz a few times, but first time in these apartments. Very clean, great air conditioning and super beds. Throws on the sofas were a bit annoying as they kept falling off or you fell over them! Staff were lovely, had a problem with the wash basin reported it and someone there to repair that afternoon. Would go back to the apartment.
Thank you for your review, we really appreciate your feedback. Sorry, the throws for the sofa didn't work for you. There are baskets to put them in but I understand the maids had put these in the bedrooms, so my apologies and we will rethink this. More importantly, we are delighted you enjoyed your holiday in this lovely part of Portugal.
Another fabulous holiday in Luz, in your beautiful apartment and as usual everything was perfect!
The apartment was fully equipped with everything needed for a very, very comfortable stay.
Reception was very attentive and helpful as usual.
Thanks for everything Celia... looking forward to next year already!!!
Stunning condo in a sweet village.
This unit had everything we could have wanted. It was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished, with comfy beds, great blackout blinds, big and modern bathrooms, and everything we could have needed. Small issue with AC that took a day to resolve, but otherwise we could not have been more comfortable. Loved all the space, and having milk and water in the fridge were really nice touches. Great pools across the street. Luz is a sweet little village, and the beach and town were an easy 10 minute walk from the unit. Really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you so much for your review and we are delighted you had a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
We absolutely loved this place. It was new and modern, extremely clean, and a perfect location. We used all 3 of the balconies at different times of the day. The beds were very comfortable. We ate 2 meals a day there almost every day and found the kitchen well equipped. The 50 euros welcome package was a big hit. The pool area was also very welcoming. Rick Steves says to stay in Salema, but the hills there are unbearably steep. Lagos was very crowded. So stay between the two and be in luxury! The restaurants there were very good. Tie for #1 was Onda Luz and Chicca’s..... both very close. Next was A Fabrica at the beach and Alloro’s in the complex. The beach is definitely a family beach which we enjoyed. Do go to Ponta da Piedade which is near Lagos where the grottos, gorgeous colored water and orange hills are located...... a must see for the area. Celia, the owner, was very responsive. We didn’t want to leave.
Thank you for the helpful reivew. We are both delighted you enjoyed yourselves in this lovely part of Portugal and had a great stay.
We had just a lovely stay in Luz. The apt was very clean, quiet and spacious. A beautiful resort with a heated pool and close to the beach and restaurants.
We would definitely book here again!
We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay in wonderful Luz. We look forward to hosting your next visit.
Praia Da Luz is one of the most desirable areas of the Algarve with stunning blue flag beaches and spectacular scenery. Adjacent beaches are listed within the top ten of the world's most beautiful beaches. Once a traditional fisherman's village Luz itself retains the character of it's origins with cobble streets and whitewash houses. Nestled under ancient sandstone cliffs providing walks with breath taking scenery, the village of Luz has a sheltered bay and large sandy beach.
Within walking distance of the apartment a pretty palm tree lined cobbled beach promenade leads to plenty of individual, independent shops, beachside cafes and restaurants and in the Summer market stalls. Local facilities include supermarkets, medical doctors, banks and post office.
A drive of less than 5 mins will bring you to one of the Algarve's best golf courses, 18 hole - 72 par with full facilities. Just 10 mins drive or a short bus or taxi ride is the delightful city of Lagos with its ancient centre, first class marina, restaurants, clubs, and shops. From the marina are many boat trips to the beautiful coves, beaches and grottoes, or to see dolphins and go fishing.
A few minutes away you will find easy access to a good road network allowing you to explore The Algarve and Lisbon. A car is not essential for this property as everything is within walking distance, and local buses provide a good service to Lagos. Car hire and car rental, however, is available locally should you wish to explore this exceptional area of Portugal.
