Barril apartments Santa Luzia

Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Santa Luzia, Faro District, Algarve
The location is within a sleepy fishing village, with beaches shops and restaurants close at hand. If your ideal is to be away from the normal crowded fronts of the Algarve and to enjoy a more cultural location that still has all the amenities then this is the place for you. Santa Luzia is very relaxing place to be, with no high rise or busy streets. This working fishing village is still very much as it has been for centurys. Tavira is just 3 K away with its Moorish old town and Venetian looks with plenty of bars, shops and restaurants. The apartments terrace takes the sun all day long, so you can unwind, use the communal pool, at your leisure. Serviced with a brick BBQ, loungers, chairs and table for the complete holiday feel into the night. Finished off with wide panorami...

About the neighbourhood
Santa Luzia is perfectly situated for many attractions and site seeing. Tavira is is just 3k away so you can easily walk, take your car, catch a bus or taxi for 5 euros. Originally a roman town it was sacked by the Moores and rebuilt and various conquerors have had a dable in its architecture. It has a Venitian quality about its river front with its plentiful bars, restaurants and shops. There are mountains to the rear of the town that provide some stunning views and some old ways of life. Golf courses and 15,20, and 30 minutes away. Santa Luzia has its festival in Early August. A drive to the west coast only takes 1hour and 15 minutes.
Getting around
From the airport you can either get a taxi or the new Hopper. Look on line. Locally its pretty flat terrain so cycling is easy for short distances. Cabs and busses and trains up and down the coast from Tavira.

The beach Ferry to Praia Terra do Estreita is the easiest beach at high season . Only a 3 minute walk. Check the times on the cabin as they tend to go every 15 mins at peak times and half hour at either end of the high season. Usually on the quarter of an hour and 3 quarters of an hour. Probably said this they will all be different. SO best check
