About Sally Gould
I am a working mother with 3 small children so life is very busy. I aim to get back to enquiries as soon as I can but often deal with booking and administration details in the evening when the children have gone to bed. I live in London with my family and work as an art teacher in a local FE College. We have been visiting the Eastern Algarve for many years and love the peace and quiet of the local area. The village is very relaxing and we completely unwind when we are there.
Sally Gould purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Sally Gould chose Santa Luzia
We chose this property as we know the village well and loved the location.It is at the quieter end of the village and when we sit on the balcony looking out at the beautiful views we feel like we haven't got a care in the world. We love the architectural style of the building and have furnished it in a way that is in keeping with it's modernist style, with contemporary furniture but paying attention to comfort and a home from home feel. We have an official Tourism licence which is a legal requirement in Portugal.
What makes this Apartment unique
We feel in love with the views from the lounge, the large spacious balcony and the lovely interior with floor to ceiling windows that open directly onto the balcony looking over the Ria. We feel it is a very special place where the surrounding countryside, and waters of the Ria are incredibly peaceful, calming and beautiful. In springtime we can sit on the balcony and breath in the heavenly scents from the Ria Formosa below. All year around hear the many birds singing and the sound of the bells on the sheep when they come to graze in the morning.

My wife and I stayed in Sally's apartment from mid Septemper to start November.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment had anything we needed during our time there.
The terrasse was the most important place in apartment. Big glassdoors to open, and including terrasse. Here we spent most of time when we not was at the beach, in Tavira or out watching birds in the salinas.
It was easy to communicate with Sally in front of our stay, and we also had contact once after some weeks.
All in all, this was a fantastic place to stay for 6 weeks.
Thank you it was a pleasure to have you as our guests - Sally
Thank you Sally for letting us stay in your lovely contemporary apartment.
We have had a lovely time here and will definitely be back (for longer next time). The heatwave didn't put us off! Santa Luzia is such a calm place combined with friendly and beautiful. We found the food, beaches and surrounding areas just perfect!
Thank you I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. It really is a special part of the world.
