More about us

  1. We Frank and Eilish are an Irish couple in our sixties with two grown up children, two grand-daughters, one grand-son and last but not least, two dogs CoCo and Maizie. We are fortunate enough to be retired and able to spend a lot of time in our apartment in Portugal. We also love caravanning and like to travel. We are looking forward to new discoveries and sharing our little piece of heaven with others. We are open to any suggestions, the world is our oyster! We have had numerous successful exchanges to date and discovered places that we would not have visited if it were not for "home for exchange".

Where is it?


We are situated in the sleepy fishing village of Santa Luzia on the eastern Algarve, 3 kilometers from the city of Tavira. Faro is the nearest airport a 35mins drive away. Car hire is recommended though not essential as we are well serviced with trains, buses and taxis. We are ideally situated a half hour from the Spanish border and only 1 hour 40 minutes drive from Sevilla by motorway. The western Algarve with its numerous beaches is also very accessible.

Santa Luzia itself is a laid back and tranquil village with an authentic atmosphere. If your ideal is to be away from the normal crowded resorts and high rises this is the place to be. It is a very pretty unspoilt village located in the Ria Formosa National Park with access to miles of unspoilt beaches. Terra Estreita the nearest beach is accessible by water taxi from the promenade in the village(during the summer months) and Barril beach a 20 minute walk away which has excellent services can be reached by foot or or by mini train across the Ria Formosa. Santa Luzia offers grocery stores, a pharmacy, a bank, lots of cafes and restaurants and is renowned for its fabulous fish restaurants. It is the octopus capital of Europe.

Tavira the most beautiful city on the eastern Algarve offers a restored castle and old town, lots of churches and a wide range of restaurants and bars. It has a large modern shopping centre. Aldi and Lidl supermarkets are situated between Santa Luzia and Tavira about one and a half kilometers from the apartment.

There are excellent golfing facilities a short drive from the apartment and waterparks within reach.
