This very spacious apartment features under-floor heating, air conditioning, electric shutters and satellite tv. There are two bedrooms, (double room with an en suite bathroom and a twin bedded room with the use of a separate bathroom), in addition to a fully fitted kitchen and spacious living/dining area. The balconies off the master bedroom and living/dining room boast beautiful ocean views.
The apartment itself is conveniently located in the central block (D) of the resort providing easy access to the upper pool deck via the main entrance to the block, or the lower pool deck via the apartment basement. This makes it very convenient for popping back up to the apartment when it comes to getting things for the family. Importantly, it is positioned at the quieter end of block D ensuring guests have a restful holiday.
Guests can also avail of free internet (wifi) access.
Parking is available underground, and the apartment is accessible via elevator and stairs.

The Algarve Region
The Algarve is the most southern region of Portugal and it's one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations well known for glorious year round sunshine and excellent sandy beaches. These vary from secluded coves with amazing cliffs to vast stretches of golden sand all sea washed by the fresh and clear Atlantic ocean. Inland you will find quaint villages barely touched by tourism. Traces of the Moorish presence are still evident in the local architecture. The orange groves and blossoming almond trees add colour to this fertile region in contrast with the whitewashed traditional houses. Due to the mild nature of the weather the Algarve is ideal for many outdoor sporting activities such as water sports, golf in one of the numerous world-class golf courses, tennis, horse riding, and many more. The Algarve is known for its cosmopolitan nightlife with many bars and clubs and has numerous waterside restaurants serving fresh seafood.
Praia da Luz Area
Praia da Luz is a beach destination in the Algarve, at just under one hours easy drive from Faro airport.
The development of the town is mostly low rise apartments and villas of all sizes, and the facilities are aimed at family holidays. There is a great variety of family friendly restaurants and bars, good supermarkets and all the amenities for a complete holiday.
There is a beautiful sandy beach perfect for sun bathing and water sports, and Luz beach sports the European blue flag indicating clean sand and clean water.
For golfers there are 4 golf courses within 5 - 20 minutes drive, and there are daytrip coaches from Luz to the water parks and dolphin park.
Luz is just 8 minutes west of the larger historic town of Lagos which provides great sightseeing, plenty of shopping, good night life, and a large established marina.
You can get flights to Faro from a large number of European Airports. If you are flying from the UK then there are around 20 different Airports offering regular, scheduled flights to Faro from the UK from 10 different UK based Airlines.
In the Republic of Ireland, Aer Lingus flies regularly from both Cork and Dublin, whilst RyanAir also offers regular services from Dublin. Flight time is around 2 hours and 30 minutes.
One of the great benefits of traveling between Ireland or the UK and Portugal is that the time zones are the same throughout the year.
Car Hire is available at Faro Airport, or a taxi to the resort can be arranged on your behalf (€80 one way).
