About Michael Tiernan & Helene Leuschel
We are a British/German couple who moved to the Algarve in 2009, with our two young children, after falling in love with the area. Ever since moving to Portugal we have not only grown fond of the friendly welcoming nature of the Portuguese people but also the incredible life style of living by the Sea. The sun (over 300 days of sunshine each year) & stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean are still jaw-dropping, even after all these years and we have been able to explore the area and its numerous attractions and places of interest with great pleasure. We love having a beach picnic as much as dining out at one of our favourite local restaurants & we are sure that you will too!
Michael Tiernan & Helene Leuschel purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Michael Tiernan & Helene Leuschel chose Luz
We purchased the property, because we just love the quiet and picturesque location of Praia da Luz. Being demanding travellers ourselves, we wanted something that offered all of the luxuries that are needed, to make a holiday very special & after a very long and thorough search, we found an apartment in Estrela da Luz, that literally ticked all of the boxes.
What makes this Apartment unique
We really do feel that our apartment is very special & enjoy it for a host of reasons - it’s luxurious, very spacious, has sea views from the lounge, kitchen & bedroom, there is access to all of Estrela’s facilities - heated pools, Jacuzzi, Sauna, Gym, tennis courts, gardens & it’s only a short walk to the beach & all local amenities - Restaurants, supermarkets, shops etc. It is very comfortable all year round, with air-conditioning & heating……yes, even though the sun is always close by, it can still be a little chilly in January! We also appreciate the special little touches, such as free parking & wifi, lots of space for kids beds/toys etc, a 24 hour reception & last but not least, a decent sized TV to relax in front of with a glass of wine, after a long ‘hard’ day at the beach :-)
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.

Gorgeous apartment and in an ideal apartment block
Michael the owner was a joy to deal with and could not do enough for us. I have a two year old and there was no hassle with a travel cot or high chair. The apartment itself was beautiful and in an ideal location for the pool and restaurant. We also had a cleaner come in every few days which was ideal with a toddler. We will come back to stay again in this apartment.
Relaxing Easter break
This lovely apartment at the Estrela was the perfect way to enjoy the Spring sunshine on the Algarve! Apartment has everything you need, with great balcony and sea views. Complex has good indoor spa, gym and pool. We will certainly go back again.
5 minute walk to the main Beach of Praia da Luz
Airports and driving time/distance to Luz: (1) Faro, Portugal to Luz - 1 hour, 94 KM / 59 Miles. (2) Lisbon, Portugal to Luz - 2hr 45min, 303KM / 190 Miles. (3) Seville, Spain to Luz - 2hr 45min, 290 KM /181 Miles Faro.
Public transport (trains/buses) do not offer terribly good links between Faro Airport and Luz and most people either hire a car or take a taxi from the airport. A taxi costs approx. €80 each way.
The apartment is located within a 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants, supermarket, pharmacies and Luz town centre. The nearest large town/city, Lagos is 8 KM (5 miles) from Luz and is a must to visit. It’s also possible to walk to Lagos, over the cliffs from Luz (a safe walk). Numerous other beaches are also very close by.
The Algarve has something to offer for every age group, from water and adventure parks - Zoomarine, Slide & Splash, Crazy World, Mini Golf and the Lagos Zoo, to bird & dolphin watching, cycling and mountain biking, horse riding, an international outdoor go-kart circuit, surfing, shopping at one of the two open air modern malls to fine Michelin dining and the discovery of numerous historic sites and museums (Sagres in the West and Monchique, Silves, Alte and Estoi to name only a few other towns towards the Centre & Eastern part of the region).
Lagos alone has an art, science and wax museum, a vibrant Saturday morning fresh produce market and a chic and vibrant marina to watch the yachts anchored in the harbour. For those in need of a well-deserved rest, stunning stretches of sandy beaches are all along the coast, offering their own list of water sports from jet-skiing, windsurfing and kite surfing to boat rides and paddling.
