Comfy apartment. Good for two people. Everything you need for a pleasant holiday. Santa Luzia is a good place to stay for a week. Enough restaurants and café/bars to enjoy. Ferry access to the great beach. A 30 minute walk into Tavira and similar to Barril Beach
Dear Mr Calam,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our apartment, we try to make it as comfortable as possible, this year, we are enjoying 80% of our clients returning which is very satisfying.
Santa Luzia is blessed with some truly great restaurants and I hope you enjoyed some of our recommendations from our meet and greet service on your arrival.
The short ferry boat ride to the Terra Estreita beach is worth it as the beach is better and quieter than Barril.
Tavira is well worth the walk, especially the fruit, veg and fresh fish market open every day except Sunday.
We hope to welcome you back to our apartment to enjoy the amazing views from our terrace sometime in the future.

brilliant apartment, all facilities AND the view
Easy to find, view from balcony is fantastic, no need to go far. Quite a few restaurants to choose from, we also enjoyed the Vincent, try the back streets. The bbq we did on the balcony was an entertainment too. Very well cared for and the owners are very obliging.
You cant fail to enjoy.....June and Glennis
Superb apartment in a great location
The directions to the apartment were easy to follow so we found it without any problem. When we entered we were so delighted as it met with, and in some ways, exceeded our expectations.The place was spotlessly clean The kitchen has all you need if you want to cook and eat in,the bedroom is comfortable and the lounge area perfect for relaxing.With all the internal doors open, the apartment feels very spacious and bright, and with both sets of balcony doors open you have plenty of cool air circulating.The view from the balcony is magical.We loved the balcony so much that at one point we had to call the medics to be surgically removed from it.Then there is the roof terrace, perfect for a bit of sunbathing but also a great place to have an aperitif and watch the sun go down. Tavira is a short drive away but is easily walkable. Santa Luzia is well placed to give access to many parts of the eastern Algarve with some of the best beaches around eg Barril (easy to walk to) and Cabeco. We even spent half a day in Spain,We only ate in once in the evening, but that was because we'd had a lovely big lunch in Moncarapacho. We didn't use the bbq as the restaurants around are so good and value for money. Follow the ratings on Tripadvisor and you can't go far wrong. Favourite was Vincent, pre-order a pork and shellfish cataplana, washed down with some great house wine, so good.
Would heartily recommend.Missing that view so much.
Excellent apartment and situation
On arrival we were delighted with the apartment, balcony and views. The place is exceptionally clean with good bedding and towels. All you could possibly require is provided including a brilliant WiFi connection. The bed was comfortable (bonus)and the shower good. We only brought hand luggage so the washing machine was useful. The balcony has the sun all day with lovely views and in the evening you don't have to walk far to find superb restaurants. The situation is excellent for having days out not too far away even by bus or train. Stunning beaches with ferry or train to take you. We will return.
Thank you for taking the time to review our special place in the sun.
The beautiful uninterrupted views from the balcony and the wonderful sunsets are irresistible, having the built in BBQ; we sometimes spend all day and evening on the private terrace watching the ever-changing tidal lagoon.
Santa Luzia is the jewel in the Algarve’s crown, delightfully non-commercialised with an amazing variety of high class restaurants but not the prices to match!
We are really pleased you enjoyed your holiday in the wonderful Eastern Algarve and look forward to you returning next year.

Spacious apartment in Santa Luzia
Beautiful spacious apartment in quiet unspoilt fishing village of Santa Luzia.
Beautiful beaches close by. Fantastic restaurants. Totally recommended.
Car is preferable
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, the apartment is spacious internally and externally which has a large non-overlooked private terrace with built in BBQ and accessed by separate patio doors from the kitchen and bedroom.
The beaches can be reached by ferry boat within 50 metres of the apartment, there are many first class restaurants with 'Vincents' being one of best in the Algarve.
We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

The beach Islands of the Ria Formosa are renowned for being peaceful, uncrowded, safe, unpolluted and extend for 12 kms.
Santa Luzia beach is 5 minutes by regular ferry boat; you can see it come in from your terrace.
Barril beach by walking or alternatively a short miniature train ride from Pedras d’El Rei, a great adventure for children.
There are beach restaurants, café bars and shower facilities.
The renting of boats, windsurf boards etc are available.
Faro Airport - 35 Kilometres, approximately 30 minutes.
Within 4kms Tavira offers a great range of shops and supermarkets (Pingo Doce, Lidle), bars/restaurants abound many specialising in seafood. The beautiful river Gilão runs through the centre of town and on those warm summer nights public entertainment can be found in the park by the river.
The climate is mild and mellow and so is the character of the land and its people. Spring, with its profusion of wildflowers, comes very early. Summers are long; winters are short. The air is free of pollution and light breezes prevent even the hottest midsummer days from becoming oppressive. The Algarvian lifestyle is easy-going, fatalistic and unfettered by concern for time.
The Algarve's healthy climate, pure air are nicely complemented by wholesome, locally-caught and home-grown food.
In particular, there is a wonderfully wide range of seafood, including all sorts of clams, prawns and lobster, and delicious fresh fish such as halibat, swordfish, tuna, sea bass and sea bream.
Eating out in the restaurants of Santa Luzia is all the more delightful because Portuguese wines are so good and so reasonably priced.
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.
