This holiday is perfect for you if you are keen to immerse yourself in the local culture and enjoy all the amenities of a top notch resort. The accommodation consists of a choice of charming, spacious one, two or three bedroom apartments dotted around the picturesque town of Luz. A former fishing village situated on the southern coast of the Algarve, Luz overlooks a beautiful sandy bay, which is protected by the dramatic Rocha Negra headland to the east.
