The space
Hello and welcome to Luz! With 3 swimming pools on site and under 10 minutes’ walk from the beach at Praia da Luz, the top floor apartment is located within the beautiful landscaped gardens of the complex and is decorated in warm colours with wooden flooring. It includes modern facilities such as satellite TV, free wi-fi, air-conditioning and under floor heating.

The apartment has two floors: on the lower floor is the spacious open plan living/dining room leading to a balcony with table & chairs, perfect for outdoor dining. There is a separate fully-equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher etc. Also on the lower floor are two bedrooms (one double with ensuite, one twin with separate bathroom). Stairs lead up from the living room to open into the large loft room which has twin beds, a shower room and sizeable private roof terrace.

The complex features 2 large swimming pools (one heated) and a toddler pool, 2 tennis courts, a children’s playground and the poolside restaurant Alloro, which serves excellent Italian food as well as drinks and snacks (opening times vary depending on the season). During the winter months, the resort is very quiet, perfect for a peaceful get-away! In July and August, it is a buzzing family favourite.

If you require a cot, you are welcome to use the travel cot located in the apartment, but I would ask that you please ensure it is clean and folded away upon departure. You would also need to use your own cot bedding for the travel cot.

Additional cleaning: The cleaning included in the cost is only for the check-out clean. If you would like additional daily, twice weekly or once weekly cleaning, this can be arranged at extra cost, directly with the resort reception.

The apartment has an allocated underground parking space, and additional parking is available at street level but it is within walking distance of the local restaurants, bars, supermarkets and shops in Praia da Luz and a short drive or taxi ride from the historic town of Lagos.

The resort's front desk is available 24 hours a day, whatever the season, and can arrange airport taxi and minibus services, golf reservations, excursions, car and bicycle rental, and babysitting.

Nearby activities include golf, cycling, walking/hiking, surfing, kayaking and other watersports.

Where you’ll be

Luz, Faro, Portugal

Praia da Luz has a welcoming and family friendly atmosphere, as the town has a significant permanent community of retired or emigrated expats. Praia da Luz can make for a fantastic holiday destination for young families or more mature visitors. The main tourist season of Luz is from June until the end of August, with August being the busiest month.

Luz can also be an alternative base from which to explore the western Algarve region, there are good public transport links to the historic city of Lagos, while there are sufficient buses to explore the west, towards Sagres. Ideally a car is the best option but for shorter journeys, Uber is becoming more and more ubiquitous.

The weather is suitable for spending time on the beach from May until late September. The spring or autumn months can be a great time to visit, especially if the focus of the holiday is exploring the region. The winter months in southern Portugal are mild but have unpredictable weather with an equal number of bright days as wet days.

Luz has one large sandy beach that stretches from the steep cliffs of Rocha Negra, round the bay to the Fortaleza da Luz fort headland. The beach has soft golden sands and calm, clean sea waters, which during the summer season are supervised by lifeguards.
