Laura (Feb 2016) Everything was really nice! Thank you!

Jordi (Nov 2015) Kitchen. Views

Bob (Nov 2015) The personal touches and the help from Enrique and Carla made us feel very welcome and of course the lovely views made it a holiday to remeber.

What do you think should change:

Sven (Oct 2015) Nothing to do. It is perfect.

Martine (Oct 2015) difficile de mieux faire super

Mél (Oct 2015) Dommage que nous n'ayons rencontré pas notre hôte. Cela dit nous avons quand même bien été accueilli

Bhavesh (Aug 2015) Unfortunately the address provided did not have enough information for our taxi driver to find it. It was very frustrating. The check in is very late team with an early check out time (although to be fair to the host, it is Clearly and accurately listed).

Lovely Luz

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay in Maria´s apartment for a month this year.

The location is great only a stroll away from the beach and supermarket.

The apartment is small but very cozy and fits perfectly for two people. Unfortunately January/ February was too cold for us to use the big terrace, but we can imagine how wonderful it is when the weather is warmer. The view is better than on the pictures.

There are 2 new a/c that works very well, television with english channels and internet worked perfectly for our needs.

We had a couple of problems/ issues in the apartment when we arrived, but both Maria and Carla took care of this instantly, which just add to the positive that you have an owner and a host that you can count on, and are there to help you right away.

(Carla is in the office right below the apartment, and Maria responded almost instantly to our mails )

If we decide to stay in Lovely Luz for a months again, we will most certain stay in Maria´s apartment.

Cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, snug apartment providing an awe-inspiring view!

We just loved our stay in this apartment! A very welcoming and beautifully decorated place planned carefully to allow a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Amazing view from the balconies, just few steps to the beach. Next door to the delicious bakery and few minutes to the supermarket. We arrived quite late and was so thoughtful to be welcomed with a beautiful basket of fresh fruit and wine... Thank you Maria for your clear, fast communication (also for providing a good Wifi (my 12 year old son loved it!) Thanks Henrique and Carla for your attention and having everything beautifully organised to make us feel very special! We definitely recommend this place...

Amazing Location and exceptionally accommodating owner!

  • 4 of 5

We spent four night during the off season at this cute town. Our arrival time was all over the map because of flight issues but the owner was incredibly flexible and responsive which was much appreciated. We arrived at 3 a.m. But the property manager didn't seem put out at all (there was a 30 euro surcharge which was totally worth waking up in Praia de Luz for!)

Pros: a block from the beach, you can hear the surf from the bedroom, this beach is beautiful and there are plenty of places to have a coffee and look onto the ocean, street parking was never an issue for us, good internet (no English TV but plenty of German?!)

Cons: the pillows and the couch were not comfortable (we ended up in folding the futon couch and using it that way,) this town has more Brittish expats than Portuguese so don't expect an authentic Portuguese experience and expect the prices to be on the high side for Portugal.

Großartiges Appartement, weit über das normale Maß hinaus. Viele, kleine Extras, die einem den Urlaub versüßen....von der grandiosen Aussicht ganz zu schweigen. ;0) Jederzeit wieder! Danke Maria.

Tolle Wohnung mit Meerblick!

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren 2 Wochen im Appartement und haben die Zeit sehr genossen!

Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und alle Küchenutensilien waren mehr als ausreichend und in guter Qualität vorhanden.

Strand, Restaurants, Supermärkte sind in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen und wir haben immer einen Parkplatz für unseren Mietwagen gefunden.

Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist superschön und wir haben bei einem Glas Wein dort den Tag ausklingen lassen.

Wer geräuschempfindlich ist sollte Ohrstöpsel dabei haben, weil die Müllabfuhr morgens um 3 Uhr die Tonnen lehrt und wie im Süden üblich nachts gerne die Hunde bellen.

Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Jolie parenthèse baignée de Lumière

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons eu l'impression d'arriver chez une amie qui nous laissait son appartement pour les vacances!

Nous l'avons découvert tel qu'il est décrit.

La situation géographique de Praia da Luz permet de visiter facilement l'Algarve.

Merci également à Henrique pour sa gentillesse.

Nous gardons précieusement les coordonnées!!!

Car: recommended

Apartment very close to the beach ... 100m! is just down the street and there is a beautiful beach with a single rock, black volcanic and that makes it different from all others.

Great for those who enjoy sea, sun and relaxation!

Beauty of the entire coast to the tip of Sagres (26 km), not to be missed!

For those who enjoy nature and hiking, there is much to discover around or a little farther many paths and beaches of the Costa Vicentina.

In Lagos we have the new Museum of Discovery and the Museum Centre of the Slave Market, the Church of San Antonio, and the fortress among others.

Spend a day at Zoomarine (50 km) is also very interesting and fun, in addition to Lagos Zoo (8 miles)

In July, August and September is a very lively village with the Parties and the Procession of Our Lady of Light.

During the low season is wonderful .... calm and peace that we live there !! Area greatly appreciated for medium and long term stays due to the mild temperatures.

In the Church there Mass in English
