Santa Luzia de Tavira is a fisherman’s village about 2kms west of Tavira town. It is known as the “octopus capital” which is a local culinary speciality. It is located in the Ria Formosa National Park, which is a protected area, so this village has retained much of its historical beauty and isn't plagued by construction sites as are many typical holiday destinations in the Algarve. Santa Luzia’s beaches are protected by the Department of the Environment and regularly win awards as being amongst the cleanest in Europe. Praia da Terra Estreita, across from Santa Luzia is one of the few beaches in the country where in addition to water sports you can also experience balloon rides, massages, yoga, outdoors cinema, etc. Top class golf courses are within easy reach of Santa Luzia. And Santa Luzia's proximity to Tavira, Faro and Spain make it a very attractive vacation destination

However, there is a sofa bed (sleeps 2) in the living room, as well as a full bathroom, both located on the ground floor which would be suitable for anyone with walking difficulties .

Large family-friendly house in picturesque Santa Luzia, sea view, near beaches
average rating of 4.625 based on 8 reviews

That's a very nice house.

  • 5 of 5

This hiouse situated in the center of Santa Luzia city give many benefits.

We have 5 minutes to take the boat for Santa luzia beach. We are also in 5 or 10 minutes at many supermarkets and grocer's shops.

The fishing port is very near and we have the choice of a lot of restaurants and snack where we can eat portugueses specialities.

We have been welcomed by Samantha who is very friendly.

The house is great with a contemporary design inside.

The outside walls show the famous "azulejos" decor what is typical in Portugal.

We didn't need a car to discover the city and we have taken the bus to go to Tavira with few minutes.

Thank you for this good tilme past on holidays.

This a spacious house, well renovated, ideal with children or 2 families sharing. 3 min away from the ferry to the beach and restaurants are around the corner. Santa Luzia is full of charm, slow paced, relaxing and beautiful.

Feriehuset er velegnet til vennepar (3-5 par)

  • 4 of 5

Feriehuset ligger i en meget hyggelig, lille protugisisk fiskerby med en række dejlige restauranter og en dejlig badestrand i gåafstand. Huset rummer 5 soverum og 4 badeværelser, og det er beliggende centralt i byen. Byen Santa Luzia er Algarves bælksprutteby, man kan således nyde en række spændende retter fremstillet af blæksprutter. Desuden er der mange andre dejlige fiskeretter samt kødretter på menukortene.Den nærliggende strand Barrill er en sand nydelse med en vidunderlig strand på Algarves smukke kyststrækningen. Der er ikke længere tll stranden fra huset end det er muligt at gå derud, men ønsker man ikke dette, er et også muligt at tage med et lille hyggeligt tog, der bringer badegæsterne direkte ud til den skønne strand med dejlige bølger, hvidt sand flankeret af en række gamle monumentale ankere placeret i klitterne ved stranden.

Huset kan varmt anbefales, vi var der sammen med 3 vennepar og havde en skøn,skøn ferie i efterårsferien 2011.

Vi testede tre af de nærliggende golfbaner - specielt den dyreste Monte Rei var imponerende.

La casa es perfecta para viajar con niños, muy espaciosa, luminosa y confortable. Fuimos 2 familias con 7 niños en total entre 4-11 años y el sitio de sobra para todos. El mobiliario, el menaje, electrodomésticos, etc...todo nuevo, perfecto y hasta el mas mínimo detalle. La barbacoa del patio una gran idea, perfecta para una noche tranquila en casa. El acceso a la playa muy divertido para los niños en barco o tren. La acogida por parte de Jane muy amable y Ana siempre disponible.

Recomendable para cualquier época del año.

Great property for family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The villa provided excellent base for our holidays that we spent in a group of friends(six adults together) in March. The property has been refurbished to the highest standards by the owners, the modern kitchen had everyhing that was needed, the barbecue was very useful as well, the house was very spacious and clean.

The 4 children (0-4 years)and adults enjoyed the place a lot as well as one of the nearby beaches. Transport to Tavira was good and we used taxis as we had a group of people so it was cheaper than buses.

The area around property was peaceful and quite, felt also safe with friendly locals and a nice bar only about 100m away. There were also many restaurants and excellent small shops.

The communication with the owners was spot on, also the keeper was very friendly and helpful.

We'd strongly recommend this property to others.
