“We had a fabulous stay in this lovely and warm apartment in the eastern Algarve, in a small fishing village. The apartment was homey and perfect setting for a family holiday. It made for a wonderful home base to explore southern Portugal. The owners were so very accommodating and friendly. We have wonderful memories of Portugal!”

“We had the opportunity to arrange an exchange with this nice home in Santa Luzia. The location is ideal in the most beautiful little fishing village. Walking distance to all fantastic inexpensive restaurants and down to the waterfront. Cycling distances to both the Atlantic beaches and to the nearby historic town of Tavira. We loved our two weeks in the village and would highly recommend a stay there. Thanks a lot Eilish and Frank for letting us occupy your home. Anna-Sophia and Holger”
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.
