1 BEDROOM 'TOP FLOOR' APARTMENT ON THE SEA FRONT IN SANTA LUZIA, ALGARVE.

Santa Luzia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Sea Views, Perfect Location, Frontline - 25 Metres to Waters Edge

Due to our attention to detail the apartment has been granted an Official Rental Licence from the Ministry of Tourism, a legal requirement for rental properties.

The apartment has a spacious non-overlooked terrace with stunning romantic sea views, superbly positioned by the waters edge of the Ria Formosa in the unspoilt fishing village of Santa Luzia, 4km west of Tavira.

Perfectly located to discover the marvellous world of fauna and flora that lives on the Eastern Algarve coast, a bird watchers paradise. Conveniently next to the promenade with all amenities - restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy, bank and small shops. The white sandy beaches are safe, gently sloping and can be reached by ferry boat, which you can see sitting from your terrace or a short walk to catch the miniature railway to Barril beach near Pedras del Rei complex which has a swimming pool. There is a built-in BBQ for the evening meal, if you chose, with a glass of fine wine to take in the breathtaking sunsets.

Local Amenities: The water shoot park in Loule is only 35 Minutes away and is great fun, You can also Swim with the Dolphins at Zoomarine!

We have a number of excellent markets nearby (a detailed list will be in the apartment) where you can pick up some real bargains. There is an interesting car-boot near the beach of Fuzeta where you will find some unusual items. Ayamonte, 20 mins (the Spanish border) town has a similar market every Saturday.

Tourist resort towns with entertainment, bars, restaurants and casinos only a 10 - 40 minute drive away (depending which town you would like to visit). Finally, For those of you who do not want to just stay on the beach and want to see more of the original Algarve then a circular drive through Moncarapacho, Estói, Olhão and Tavira is well worth doing, with the A22 link this makes a good half day visit.

Golf: Not only has the Algarve the best golfing climate in Europe it also has some of the best courses and facilities.

To the West, Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo courses are within 30 mins of the Apartment and Vilamoura a further 15 mins further on.

Benamor, Quinta de Cima and the Quinta de Ria are within 10 minutes and Castro Marim a further 15 minutes.

Great Apartment in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in this apartment in the charming fishing village of Santa Luzia. The apartment was exactly as described, with a very convenient location, excellent presentation and amazing views. The views from the terraces were endlessly changing and we had superb weather for 6 of the 7 days we were there. Santa Luzia is a working village as well as a tourist destination which makes for a good ambience, even out of season. Lots of good restaurants, selection of mini supermarkets and convenient for bigger destinations such as Tavira, which is a beautiful town. We toured along the coast, with its amazing beaches and even did a day trip to Seville - just under 2 hours drive.
All in all, this was one of the best holidays we have had. The apartment has everything you need and the whole booking process and arragements worked very smoothly and efficiently.

Owner's Response: Dear Linda,

Thank you for your valued feedback, we are very lucky to have one of the best locations in one of the best unspoilt fishing villages in Europe.

We have many guests who return year after year to this special place in the sun.
It is important to us that we have described the apartment accurately so the perception is a reality when you walk through the front door and out onto the private terrace with fantastic views over the Ria Formosa that are ever-changing.

We are pleased that we were able to help you with the booking process and all went as smoothly as possible which is comforting for holiday makers booking the apartment for the first time.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review and we hope you will add to the increasing number of returning guest list.

Kind Regards
Brian & Christine

Great Holidays in a wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5
Everybody who wants to make holidays in the very nice fishing village of Santa Luzia will love this beautiful apartment and feel like home from home!

It offers not only a wonderful 360° view from the roof-terrace, but as well a view over the harbour, to the beach and sunset from the huge balcony in front of the kitchen and bedroom, where you will find everything you want (BBQ, table and chairs for sitting outside...).

Inside the apartment offers all comforts, plenty of space, washing-machine, micro-wave, fridge, TV, Radio, heaters, bath tub, a comfortable bed and the cosy living-room has even another terrace with view to a place, where you can watch the old men playing Boule every afternoon.

Everything is like to be seen on the photos, only that i reality the rooms seem wider than on the pictures.

The apartment is the last one in the first row to the river, it is very quiet, but you have only 1 minute to a small supermarket and only some footsteps to bars and restaurants, where you will meet not only tourists, but also friendly fishermen and other locals .

Brian helps you in arranging everything.
So you will spend very fine holidays here which I will recommend to friends and family in my native Germany.

Rental in Santa Luzia, Portugal

  • 4 of 5
This apartment on the Algarve had everything we needed. The rooms were spacious and the bed was comfortable. We had a fridge, microwave, and stove, and lots of cupboard space, so we were able to buy and store food for making our meals. The grocery stores were very nearby - 4 of them within easy walking distance. There were many restaurants if you wanted to eat out. The town is close to a major highway, so it was easy to get out and explore other places on the Algarve.
However, there were a few things that took away from "the home away from home" feeling. The apartment was clean enough, but not pristine, especially the toilet.The home isn't used all year round, so there was an unused, musty smell about it. We were given 2 bath towels, 4 hand towels and a tea towel for the whole week. This was not enough, even though we had a washing machine - we had rain while we were there, and couldn't get the towels dry fast enough. There were no extra toilet rolls, no paper towels, no dish cloth, no dish soap, no laundry detergent, no condiments for cooking, and no sugar. We bought the smallest amount of these things, but had to leave the majority of it behind. My husband and I both agree that these basics should be provided. If it weren't for these few problems, we would say the apartment was perfect.

Excellent Holiday Apartment

  • 5 of 5
"We had an excellent holiday, everything about it was ideal. The apartment was very comfortable, the best we have had from every aspect, and Santa Luzia is a lovely place.
We manged to explore the area using a Taxi once, the local Bus and Train service as well as taking lovely walks.
To complete a perfect holiday the weather was very kind to us.
We would certainly love to go back again sometime, which speaks for itself, as normally I personnally like to visit somewhere different each time"

Owner's Response: Thank you, we love our home from home in the wonderful unspoilt Santa Luzia, we are pleased that you used local transport; it is much easier than you think, isn’t it.

The weather in early November can still be warm enough to enjoy alfresco dining, we are very lucky to have a superb location with ever changing tidal views on the front with many of our guests returning year after year.
