Car: Not Necessary
Praia da Luz is arguably one of the prettiest beaches in the Western Algarve, sporting the european blue flag, and classified as accessible with ramps and walkways and facilities for the disabled. East are picturesque rocky coves and the long sandy crescent of Meia Praia at Lagos, within 10 minutes drive. 15 minutes West are the resort beaches of Burgau and Salema, and further again are a multitude of beaches frequented by surfers, Spectacular and less busy but not so safe for small children.
Faro is the nearest airport at only a 1 hour drive away.
Praia da Luz beach 70m. Historic town of Lagos 8 mins by car. Cape St Vincent 30 mins by car.
The villa is centrally placed and within walking distance to all village amenities which include post office, bank, cash dispensing machines, several supermarkets, pharmacy, English-speaking doctors surgery and dentist. Zoomarine dolphin park and Slide and Splash water park provide coach transport from Luz. Anglican church services are held on Sunday in the local church. Tennis is widely available, including lessons and friendly tournaments. There are two water-sport centres on the beach providing everything from banana boat rides, to sailing lessons, to fishing excursions. From Lagos you can try parasailing, deep-sea fishing, dolphin safari, or visit the grottos by fishing boat. There are several surf centers offering day trips to wherever the waves are best on the day, wetsuits, equipment and instruction as required. Luz can offer truly international cuisine in a wide choice of cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and occasions. Many are family friendly and also offer a takeaway service. For a change of scene we recommend an evening out in the historic town of Lagos. The 8 minute taxi ride is inexpensive - let us book for you and just sit back and enjoy the local wines. For younger children, a visit to the local zoo is both delightful and educational, and there are kids activities available in the village.
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: My parents purchased our family property in this then undiscovered part of the Algarve in 1966. For many years the farmhouse, which was the surviving building on the site of the old tuna cannery, was a haven of peace for happy family summers. I chose to make my life here in the late 80's, and the property passed to me in 1996. As times changed, and with careful thought, the old farmhouse and outbuildings were remodelled and developed. Today we can offer desirable villa accommodation in the same perfect holiday location we enjoyed as children, but with all modern facilities. We now have many returning guests who have taken Luz to their hearts in the same way as my own family did so many years ago.
