Parque da Floresta and Palmares are 15 mins away and Henry Cottons's Penina as well as Alto and the recent Nick Price course are less than 25 to 30 minutes.
The property is a good size and in a good position with good sea view. Although the property was clean, the sun terrace had not been swept when we arrived. It is not worth the amount we paid particularly as the aircon was not working when we arrived and despite 34c+ temps was not fixed during our stay

The property was in a beautiful position overlooking the sea on the edge of Praia de Luz. It had everything we needed from dishwasher to Sky TV for the lads! We had the best holiday ever according to my daughters so you cant get any better than that.
Jane and her husband, who looked after the property, were lovely and helped with any queries we had.
Praia de Luz is a beautiful village and we were well looked after by everyone we met and we would definitely come back again.

2 Ocean View was everything the details said it would be....and more. There was everything we could want within the house.The location was ideal and Luz was a delight. Without a doubt we will be back!

What a fantastic apartment in a great location with excellent views. We went as a family of 5 and there was plenty of room for us all without being under each other’s feet. The communal pool is fantastic and was never overcrowded. We moved one of the 2 sofas in the living room in front of the sliding patio doors where I spent many an hour just looking out at the beautiful view across the sea day and night while the women got ready and having a night cap after being out visiting at one of the many great restaurants within walking distance. We stayed away from British run restaurants & bars and stuck to Portuguese run establishments that were great (why go all the way to Portugal to go to British pub)? We had a hire car from Faro airport which was kept in the underground car park for the duration of our stay and used for the odd day out like to the Water Park (Slide & Splash) which is about a 30 min drive away from the apartment. We took our Sat Nav with us from the UK which worked very well. The Portuguese people are very friendly and we found buy learning just a few words of the language went down very well although everyone speaks very good English. There is an information pack in the apartment which is full of local information from driving laws to things to do, local walks and places to visit. We would highly recommend this apartment and location for a family holiday or a romantic break. VMTs

June 2012. We have replaced the TV with new 3D/HD 42in flat screen, and added a midi sound system with iPod dock. New larger leather style sofas have been ordered but will only be delivered mid July. In the kitchen new glasses, mugs, plates etc and enough such that you do not have to wash up continuously. Similarly new plastic glasses etc for the pool area.
If any renter feels that we need something not provided for then grateful for any suggestions.
Thu 01/07/2004 22:26We should have e-mailed you earlier to say that we had a wonderful time at 2 Ocean View. We felt that the internet photos did not adequately represent how nice everything was. We enjoyed Luz very much, easy access to beach restaurants etc which meant we didn't spend much time in the car. We would love to go back maybe when it is not quite so hot so as to enjoy the many splendid walks in the area. Jane was a treasure and represents the owners very well indeed ... nothing was too much trouble for her.Anna-Maria Bailey
About the owner
South African from Cape Town - now working in banking in London for last 20 years. Love Portugal due to friendly people and the Algarve climate - the West coast beaches which are short drive away remind me of South African beaches. I have a daughter & a son (21+ 23) and get to the villa usually for 2 weeks in summer and a long weekend at another time.
My partner Jane from Wittering in England runs the admin on the property for us and will help on any questions.
