Excellent Place to Experience the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and wished we had a month. Luz is a wonderful quiet village with a super beach and a couple great Golf Clubs close by. Resorthoppa bus gives quick inexpensive access from Faro Airport. Bus to Lagos provides for shopping and additional night life. This place has it all, nice pool, restaurants, access to the west coast surfing beaches, etc. A must stay!

Fab stay in Praia de Luz

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in this apartment complex for 2 weeks in August. I have rented in many private complexes thru the years in Portugal and I have to say this complex is up there with the best. The apartment itself is spacious, modern and very well equipped. The owner was excellent to deal with and made the whole booking experience easy from start to finish. Luz is a very family friendly resort with an excellent beach with great water sports. Night life might seem quiet to families with older children but the quality of restaurants were second to none. Top tip for families staying in the busy months of July and August is to pre book restaurants as they get extremely busy especially between 19.30 and 21.00. I suppose the on negative comment I could make is the lack of a pool bar it didn't overly bother us but having to walk back to your apartment to get a cold drink might get tiresome to some people we brought a cool bag so it wasn't a problem.

A lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this apartment several times now and it feels like a home away from home. Location is excellent - just a short stroll to the beach and restaurants. Well furnished and equipped and always lovely and clean. If you want a quiet, relaxing stay in Portugal, this is the place for you.

Beautiful, clean, modern and safe apartment

  • 5 of 5

St James is a spectacular complex in Praia da Luz. The property was maintained to a very high standard and the property description was accurate. As one of the more modern developments in Luz its built to a high standard with all necessary facilities. Pre arrival the communication with the owner was great and all our questions were answered fully. The property suited out party of 4 with a toddler perfectly. We felt safe and comfortable at all times. The weather was hot and sunny so the AC's came in very handy. The facilities in St James are lovely and we used the pools every day. St James is a 2 minute walk from a local shop that sells fresh bread, fruit and veg. A 10 minute walk and you are on the sea front where there are numerous restaurants and bars. I would highly reccomend this property and would stay here again if the property was available.
