PRIVATE APARTMENT IN PRIME LOCATION WITH BEAUTIFUL SEA VIEWS

Santa Luzia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Double bedroom, 1 pull-out bed, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

We now hold an offical Portuguese tourist licence. The apartment is situated at the Western edge of the unspoilt fishing village of Santa Luzia and a short drive to the historical and beautiful town of Tavira. This prime location is peaceful and very close to one of the best beaches on the Eastern Algarve. From the apartment it is a short walk to the village centre with its wonderful seafood restaurants that line the waters edge. The first floor apartment was built in 2006 and has a contemporary feel. The kitchen and lounge have floor to ceiling windows and shutters that run across the entire front of the apartment. These open directly on to a good sized private balcony, with uninterrupted views of the countryside and seawaters of the Ria Formosa, a nature reserve that is a haven for wildlife. In the evening you can watch the most glorious sunsets over the mountains. The apartment is only 8km from Junction 16 of the A22 motorway, 35km from Faro and within 10km of excellent golf courses.

Local amenities: The water shoot park in Loule is only 35min 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 min (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 min of the Apartment and Vilamoura a further 15 min further on.

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

We have 2 bicycles available for use free of charge. We can also offer the use of a Dongle free of charge which just requires a refundable security deposit of £25. This is subject to availability and arrangements need to be made prior to your visit

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

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.

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.

This property is immaculate in every respect and is ultra modern with all the latest facilities including Air Conditioning and must not be missed ! Its ideal for that relaxing break ! The views from the balcony are superb.There are some excellent restaurants in Santa Luzia the closest being 150 yards away is very good value with well presented good food. The best restaurant is a french one called Vicente which is for the discerning diner or the last night of your holiday. There is also a local bar opposite Vicente which is basic but sometimes have a good local bad playing and the drinks are reasonably priced. Tavira is close by and can be visted easily by car there are many restaurants there and also some nice shops. Travel down the coast to Cabanas, Manta Rota they are also very nice places with nice beaches. For the golfer there is a great choice of courses in the area 'Monte Rei' a Jack Nicklaus designed course is the best course in the Algarve and a must for the serious player. There is also Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima which are very good courses. All in all we fell in love with the area! You can travel to Faro easily by car and train from Tavira. You are only 30mins by car from Vila Real de San Antonio on the Spanish Border. The apartment is an excellent base to tour around the Eastern Algarve and we would highly recommend this property for a lovely holiday. Yes we will come back again ! Tom and Avril

This was our third time staying at Sally's apartment and it was as good as ever. The apartment is well appointed and very comfortable. The location and views are hard to beat. Santa Luzia is a nice relaxed place to stay and the restaurants are very good. Try them all! We haven't found a bad one yet, the seafood is highly recommended. If you like walking there is a very good guide book "Trails in the Algarve" available in the tourist office in Tavira.

Excellent location with balcony overlooking fantastic area for bird watching. Lovely and warm even in November. The village is still an authentic fishing village with many value for money, friendly restaurants. Owner made booking easy, website information was realistic. Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending to friends.

Carla and I found Santa Luzia, near Tavira, 6 years ago. And we never stopped coming back.
It is placed at the Ria Formosa, a Natural Park with 170 km², just considered by the vote of the Portuguese people has our first natural wonder. Across several cities in the Algarve, From Faro to Vila Real de Santo António, the Ria Formosa lagoon is a system of barrier islands that communicates with the sea through 6 inlets. Five of these inlets are natural and consist in a a stopping place for hundreds of different birds during the spring and autumn migratory periods
Sally's apartment offers a wonderful view of the Ria from its lovelly balcony. The decoration is modern and It is well equipped, with books you can read and a small DVDs collection. The kitchen has everything you would need.
With a contemporary architecture, the apartment is well located, near the boat that take us to Terra Estreita, one of Portugal's best Beach's, or Praia do Barril, were we can take the small train and enjoy the landscape.
Santa Luzia is closed to Tavira, one of most ancient city's in the Algarve, with Muslim occupation until the X-XI century's. For those that like history there's several museums and the City All offers visits to the historical places. For entertainment, the annual European and non-European film festivals and the arts and crafts fair. Finally, there's the amazing Portuguese cuisine, and some of the best restaurants, like Alcatruz, Casa Azul or Capelo, are in Santa Luzia.
And we must point out Sally', a wonderful hostess.
