To explore nearby by...

Within a five minute drive away is the historic fishing town of Lagos, one, if not the most attractive town in the Algarve. Lagos combines old cobbled streets with traditional restaurants, bars and plenty of shops. Browse the sports cruisers and transatlantic yachts at the bustling Lagos marina or simply sit and watch at one of the café bars. It is also home to the truly spectacular 6km Meia Praia beach, one of the longest and most spectacular beaches in the Algarve.

Lagos is also rich in culture. There are many historic buildings including churches, museum and Europe’s first 15th Century slave market. The impressive town walls, still largely intact, date back to Roman times. Lagos was also the home of Henry the Navigator, famous for the voyages of discovery that changed both Portugal and the world.


Travel west and explore the quieter picturesque fishing villages of Burgau and Salema or discover your very own isolated beach for the day. At Sagres and Cape St Vincent you can stand on the most south-westerly point in continental Europe where the ancients thought the world ended.


Take a refreshing drive inland to the spectacular Monchique mountains and explore the surrounding green countryside. The mountains offer breathtaking views, where on a clear day you can see almost from one end of the Algarve coastline to the other. Monchique has a reputation for serving up some of the best Chicken Piri-Piri in the Algarve. Other various local dishes are worth a try. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from along the road to Foia and also along the road to Caldas de Monchique. It’s hard to choose between them, as they all offer good value for money and tasty food.

Good location, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Clean well equipped property, 5 mins from beach, 1 min from Supermarket. Clean and the garden is lovely. Reception staff at Ocean Club were brilliant, waiting for us after our plane was delayed taking off from Gatwick, and then showing us the apartment and making sure we were settled. We would definitely use this apartment again and recommend it

Perfect Perfect Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic 2 week stay in this apartment. What first attracted me to this apt. was the number of very positive reviews followed by the photographs. I was intrigued because in all the times we have been on holiday we have never been totally happy with what we were expecting.Well not so in this case, the reviews and photographs more than live up to their billing.This is a fantastic apartment in the perfect location.It is extremely well furnished and the kitchen well stocked,although I do have one very,very small complaint. i.e. there was no JUICER in the kitchen( I do like my freshly squeezed Orane juice). The garden and patio areas were great sun traps in the AM.The complimentary WiFi was a great bonus.Luz is a fantastic location

with close proximity to the beach and many fabulous restaurants.It was our first time visiting Luz for a holiday and it is a definite return location and when we do return I sincerely hope it will be to this apartment. Luis, thank you for helping to make our holiday one of the most enjoyable.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this 1 bedroom apartment. The unit was spacious, very clean and well maintained. Excellent location with respect to grocery shopping, beach promenade, restaurants, nearby attractions. The property manager, Luis, was very helpful during the booking process and very accommodating once we arrived. Excellent customer service. Would definitely stay at this location again.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Praia da Luz very much. This apartment was just as we saw it in the web listings. It was clean, very well appointed and equipped. Good bed linens and towels which were changed regularly, and comfortable beds.

Luis was very helpful, providing good service. He and his wife Paula met us on arrival. We enjoyed the bottle of wine Luis,thank you!! They gave us recommendations for eating out in local restaurants, and recommended we buy the local bread rolls which were gorgeous.

There was a handy supermarket a short walk along the street, the Baptista. Which was well stocked with Portugese products as well as a good range of imported British products.

The location of the apartment was close to the shops, church and restaurants just a few minutes walk, The promenade walk is beautiful as is the lovely sandy beach.

It was a good choice of apartment. We liked it very much. We would recommend the apartment absolutely. In fact we have recommended to friends.

Thank you Luis and Paula. We fell in love with Luz and will be back soon.

Regards, Elizabeth and John

Vacartion in Luz and you will not be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. Good location, good food, good wine, good people. The apartment is clean and equipped with modern appliances, and the wireless internet connection. It is located in a quiet neighborhood with 2 groceries stores close by. Relatively Short walk to the beach. The beach itself is very clean with very little, if none at all, surf. Very suitable for swimming. One suggestion we would make about traveling to Luz: fly, if possible, to Faro instead of Lisbon. Lisbon is about 300 km away. But if one does not mind driving for three hours, then it’s not a problem. The roads from Lisbon down south are fantastic, though beware of numerous tolls). Overall, Luz is a perfect vacation spot. Thank you, Luis, for making our stay enjoyable and relaxing.

perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect holiday. The apartment was clean, well-maintained and near to the two swimming pools and the supermarket. The apartment is better maintained, than when you hire from an organization. Luz is also a fine place to stay with a beautiful beach and great restaurants. Please notice, that Luz is a great place for an relaxed stay. Also the surrounding is great with history, beautiful beaches and great city's.

We loved it.

Praia da Luz
Car: not necessary

Like most towns on the Algarve coast, Praia da luz was originally a fisherman's village. Even though today it has grown into a popular seaside holiday resort it still manages to retain a lot of its old world charm and at the same time offering a relaxing place for the holidaymaker.

To the east and about 8 kilometres is the main historic town of Lagos, the Capital of the Western Algarve, with is ancient walls and its history having played an important part in the story of discovery of many parts of the world.

You will find that the village of Praia da Luz is a generally a lot quieter and more peaceful than many of the other coastal resorts on the Algarve, such as nearby Lagos, so it is perfect for family holidays or just a relaxing break.

Praia da Luz with its delightful natural sandy blue flag beach, is only 3 minutes walking distance

Praia da Luz is approximately 50 minutes drive from Faro Airport through the motorway.

Note: If larger accommodation is required, this can also be arranged.

Golf: There are several eighteen hole quality golf courses within 5-15 minutes drive of Praia da Luz such as Boavista Golf, Parque da Floresta,Penina, Espiche Golf and the renowned Palmares. Please ask at Ocean Club reception for more details.

The most recent course is Espiche Golf, opened in March 2012. This is approximately 8 minutes drive. (5KM) (15KM) (10 KM) (6KM) (26KM)
