About our home
We are looking for a swap in August with or without points ideally in UK or Europe.
Our lovely 1 bedroom apartment was totally refurbished in 2013 in a contemporary style. It is located in Praia da Luz, a pretty seaside village in the Western Algarve. Only a couple of minutes from the beautiful beach, it is the perfect place to relax with a south facing terrace.
The apartment is in a small complex with sea views and overlooks the communal garden. Inside there is a bright spacious lounge/kitchen with a breakfast bar, The bathroom is modern with walk in shower and the pretty bedroom has a king sized bed. There is heating and air conditioning making it ideal all year round.
Praia da Luz has plenty of restaurants, a few bars and a couple of small but well stocked supermarkets all within waking distance from the apartment making a car not essential. There is a regular bus service to the maritime town of Lagos with an abundance of restaurants and a beautiful marina. Should you wish to explore further with a car the Western Algarve offers many stunning rugged beaches offering some fabulous surfing.
There are also many golf courses the closest being 5 minutes drive away.
We bought the apartment for our parents who use it a couple of times a year so we don't have to do a simultaneous swap.

“Tracey’s villa was close to everything in Luz - you could walk to the beach, restaurants, grocery stores etc. Luz is a quaint picturesque seaside beach town with plenty of ex-pats, nice restaurants. Easy day trips/drive to Lagos or Sagres. Tracey was always prompt to respond to messages. Her place was well equipped with kitchen essentials and very comfortable for a max of 2 persons. Thank you! ”

“We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week holiday in Tracy and Martin's lovely holiday home. I can't recommend a visit here enough with the apartment's close proximity to the beach, supermarkets and restaurants. This is one of the best positions in Luz in my mind. I shall miss breakfast every day on the sun terrace with views out to sea and the smell of sardines being barbecued from neighbouring apartments at lunch times. The apartment itself is very stylishly decorated and has all the mod-cons you would ever need. Lovely big bed and never had to use the air conditioning as the apartment was always cool inside despite average 30C outside. Luz is a very pretty, village size family holiday resort and apart from the occasional cry from a seagull, the area was quiet and relaxing. My wife and I would love to visit again and would not look for anywhere else to stay.”

“This Lovely property we stayed in, in Praia de Luz was 5 star in all
respects, the hosts Tracey & Martin were very helpful and met us when we
arrived, leaving us some food basics and wine, which was very thoughtful,
the property was also spotless and very well equipped. The location really
fabulous just set back a little from the front, with a sun trap patio with
stunning views of the sea. We had such a lovely stay we have already
indicated we would love to go back again! This has been our first swop and
a very positive experience for us both. Even out of season, their
was loads of lovely places to eat, gorgeous walks and loads of things to do
in the local area. Tracey & Martin left us very good information in the
property about place of interest in the area and recommended places to eat.
All in all a very good experience!
