Guide to Luz Self Catering Holidays

Our villa holidays in Luz, in the western Algarve are popular with families because of the fabulous local sandy beach which is known for its water sports. Luz is believed to be named after the beacon which was lit to warn fisherman of invading Moors. Today, the fishermen use lights at night to find squid, and they shine like an underwater motorway headed for Africa (The Road to Morocco), so the village is aptly named.

The village retains its traditional Portuguese charm and winding cobbled streets with quaint whitewashed houses blend easily with the facilities of modern tourism and beach life. The old fortress has been converted into an impressive restaurant serving superb food. A further array of interesting restaurants can be found in the village as well as two good beach bars. For a wider selection of restaurants, Lagos is nearby and has a more lively nightlife with discos.

The surrounding beaches are safe and sandy, with a good selection of water sports for the more adventurous, including windsurfing, boating, waterskiing and diving. This is also a good area for surfing, and horse-riding, fishing, sailing and golf are all within easy reach. Further to the west, is Sagres, the most south-westerly point of Europe and the place where Portuguese explorers set forth to navigate the globe.
