We can give you a contact for airport transport for about €80 each way. Please note that many new developments described as being in Luz are actually not within walking distance of beach and village, but this development really is ideally located. If you do hire a car, there are lots of fabulous beaches, some deserted even in peak season, within a half hour drive. Luz is a lovely location for a family beach holiday, small groups of friends, and for golfers/walkers. Estrela attracts families, couples, and adult groups. Most of the visitors tend to be Irish or British, and we´ve also had Dutch and Canadian guests. The village of Luz is low-rise, mostly villas, with plenty of restaurants, bars, a lovely seafront promenade with coffee bars, gift shops, and in the evenings, gift and jewellery stalls. Nearby Lagos (taxi 10 minutes Euro10) offers a good nightlife with restaurants and clubs. The apt is finished to exceptionally high standard. Secure electric soundproof shutters and underfloor heating for winter evenings. Child safety: Our furniture is family-friendly and comfortable, ie no glass tables, white couches or sharp corners to bump into! The Estrela complex is secure and gardens are enclosed with coded entry gates. There is CCTV surveillance of the apartment stair and lift area. Babysitters can be arranged through reception, and most local restaurants welcome kids of all ages. Free wifi in apartment. More

Additional amenities & feature info
This is a new apartment, very well finished and comfortably furnished. The kitchen, dining and living areas are open-plan and all open onto balcony with sea views. The kitchen is excellently fitted out, with all you need to create a meal for al-fresco dining. The south facing balconyis also great for perfectly private sunbathing during the day, and from it you can see both outdoor pool areas. Note that many of the apartments at Estrela have small terraces and some do not get sun at all. Ours offers both sun and shade all day. Both bedrooms have two single beds, one arranged as a double and one as twin. One of the double sofas in the lounge is a sofa-bed. We recommend a maximum of four people in the apartment for optimum comfort, but it can sleep five. There are three supermarkets within walking distance, the smallest (like a centra) less than minute walk and the larger Spar and Baptista less than 10 minutes walk. Baptista will deliver your food. Lots of take-way options too. Fish market in Luz is in the mornings 9-12; In Lagos there is a fantastic all-day fresh fish market, well worth a visit even just to look at! Wi-fi access in apartment for as many gadgets as you like. TV in living room and bedroom. The apartment has electric shutters which keep it cool by day. There is under-floor heating which is cozy in winter, and, with the south-facing aspect of the terrace, the indoor pool and gym, our apartment has also proven particularly popular for off-season rentals. We have not yet installed air-conditioning as it has not proven necessary, because the elevation of the apartment gives nice cooling breezes in warm weather. We've never needed it, even in August. The apartment is serviced by an lift/elevator from the basement car-park or ground floor.

About the neighbourhood
Praia Da Luz is a lovely little seaside village, and a really well-kept secret. White villas, sandy beach, cobblestone walkways, slow and lazy atmosphere. Good choice of quality restaurants, bars and cafes as well as a range of shops and supermarket. From Estrela all are within 10 mins walk so you don't need a car. Estrela da Luz is in a quiet location in the village (many of the newer developments are actually quite a distance outside the village), just 250m walk to a small sandy cove with lovely rocks for sunbathing on, or 350 m to the popular beautiful sandy Luz beach at the centre of the village which has a large range of watersports ans saliing equipment for hire and lessons are available. The coastal walking and cycle path starts about 200m from Estrela. Irish visitors may be in...
Getting around
Transfers to Luz are available from Faro airport and most will drop you to our reception. You don't necessarily need a car in Luz as beach and restaurants are all within walking distance, and Lagos is only a short taxi drive away (about €12). You can book tours and trips to waterparks etc from reception. If you like to explore and want to see other beaches in the Algarve, a car is handy, but you can do a lot without one. There are two supermarkets within 10 minutes walk, and on of them, Baptista, will deliver.
