“Great.”
Reviewed 23 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The weather was certainly not what we expected, lots of rainy and cool days. However, we took advantage to relax in the apartment when we could not go out, relaxing and reading our books.
The apartment is very comfortable and extremely well kitted out. Restaurants are nearby but as I had difficulty walking we hired a car and often ate out in Tavira, a very nice old town.
Unless you speak or read Portuguese the TV is very limited but next time we go we will take some old favourite DVDs and CDs for rainy days. The food, whether eaten in restaurants or bought to cook/use at the apartment is excellent. We combined the two. We were unable to use the very nice pool because of the poor weather we experienced but in warmer times it would be good.
Well done Paulo and Anabela. It lived up to our expectations and you were very attentive to our needs.

Thank you Daniel and Noreen for your kind words.
I apologize for the limitation of the TV channels, but from next May, 120 channels will be available, some in foreign language.
I hope you return, the apartment and santa luzia will always be waiting for you.
Greetings

“Stylish apartment on eastern algarve”
Reviewed 15 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Paulo and Anabel were excellent at communicating and keeping in touch before, during and after our rental period. Travelling as a couple, we enjoyed our 9 day break at this apartment, especially the comfortable bed and furnishings. As the weather became warmer we appreciated the A/C keeping us cool whilst indoors. We used the shady balcony with lovely furniture and built in BBQ almost every afternoon and evening after our return from the beaches on Ria Formosa, all within a good walk or short car journey away. Not being swimming pool people we never used this facility but would say it looked very good.
Santa Luzia is a fishing village on the coastal lagoon with lots of small shops, cafes, bars and restaurants within walking distance from the apartment. There are more extensive commercial outlets in Tavira, 2.5k away.
There are only 7 Portuguese tv channels available which was my only small criticism of this excellent vacation property.

Mcgill family,
Thank you for your kind words about our apartment and your stay in Santa Luzia. We try to give our guests the best.
We are pleased that the only small criticism is about the television channels.
We hope, however, that this is not an impediment to not coming back in the future.
All the best,
Paulo & Anabela

“lovely apartment in good location”
Reviewed 31 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This apartment is located in a quiet area of the fishing village of St. Lucia near Tavira. It is well furnished with everything you will need for a self catering holiday. Some great extra touches-all cleaning materials provided-e..xtra batteries-maps-ferry schedule etc. Very helpful owners who were constantly in touch and a great caretaker in the complex. We had the use of a indoor and outdoor pool which were very quiet. Two lovely beaches nearby and some great local restaurants. We loved our stay here and hope to return

“Great apartment but noisy neighbourhood”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The apartment had everything, clean, modern, comfortable and secure.

The village of Santa Luzia is great for walking (over the pontoon bridge to the island), seafood (octopus is great) and it's proximity to Tavira.

The downside was that the dogs in the area will bark all day and into the night, but we were out most of the day, it was just an issue in the evening when we got back. This was nothing to do with this apartment as the Portuguese do let their dogs wonder around unattended so it's something you get accustomed to eventually.

The outside pool area is good and they even have an indoor pool which is small but functional and often best left to children.

Dear Alan&Carol,
It was really unfortunate that you had an incident with neighborhood dogs. Given it is the first time we hear this feedback, we hope it was an isolated incident. Thank you and hope to have you back. Paulo&Anabela
