Only a 20 minute drive from Faro International airport. Quinta Luz do Sol welcomely open it's gates. Modern architecture against a backdrop of authentic landscape. A lovely combination. Small and cozy. A place to fully unwind. Very close to the main roads, beaches and several villages, yet surrounded by nature.
Let the pleasant silence envelop you. Here, nature sets the rhythm of the day. Blissful! In the comfortable room, the boxspring invites you to lie down. An invitation that you would like to except, were it not that through the window the next surprise can be seen.
A cozy patio, just for you, overlooking the garden surrounding the azure blue pool. The pool is 'ionic', which means that a special system keeps the water of high quality without adding chlorine or salt, so no irritation of the skin or eyes.
If you want to enjoy the beach, we have a beach bag with towels for you. Since these items do not have to be taken along in the suitcase, you have more space for other really nice holiday items, such as a good book.

The landscape of the eastern Algarve is perhaps the best kept secret in Portugal. Behind every corner you take on your journey, lies another surprise. Flat landscape alternating with hills, fig, orange, almond and other fruit trees, beautiful flowers and plants, picturesque villages that have not yet overrun by tourists, the beautiful protected Ria Formosa nature reserve, not to mention the many birds which reside in the area. The Algarve is an important stop for migratory birds. It includes, among others, beautiful storks, flamingos, waders, kingfisher, hoopoe and purple swamp hen.
Regular visitors of the quinta are the owl, the putter, swallow, bee-eater and hoopoe. The area is therefore very popular with birdwatchers, but also guests that enjoy nature, hiking, the beach, golf and cycling will appreciate this beautiful area for sure!
In the Algarve are several excellent golf courses, there are beautiful scenic hiking trails and a lot of water activities like kitesurfing, suppen(yoga) and kajakken or you could even go mountain climbing.
The charming villages of Olhão and Fuseta are about 10 minutes away from the quinta. Enjoy the bars, restaurants, fishing harbors and the local markets. Or travel by boat to the most beautiful white sand beaches, the islands or enjoy various other boat excursions. Ferry services from Olhão and Fuseta sail daily to the island Ilha de Culatra, Armona Island and Farol Island.
In short, due to our central location there is plenty of choice to go out and explore the eastern Algarve and get a "taste" of the Portuguese life with the good wines, cheeses, seafood dishes (cataplanas) and the chicken piri-piri. And don't forget to stop at a “pastelaria” for the famous “Pasteis de nata” or many other delicious pastries.
And there's so much more! For example, visit Faro, Cacela Velha, Cabanas de Tavira, Santa Luzia , Lisbon or Spain, .... Plenty to do :-)
We look forward to telling you all about it.
The Ria Formosa Natural Park is one of the most amazing places of the Algarve.
In the eastern part of the Algarve is a 60 km long belt of islands and peninsulas followed by a lagoon.
By bike, on foot or by boat you will discover all the secrets of Ria Formosa Natural Park. The salt beds, sandy islands, salt marshes and swamps combined with the large number of pecial birds make this a unique nature reserve.
The largest fishing port in the Algarve.
A must see is the covered market on the waterfront - one with vegetables and fruit, another filled with fresh fish directly from the fishing boat- surrounded by terraces and good restaurants.
Every Saturday until 13:00, just outside the market hall, there is a traditional market where farmers offer their vegetables, fruits, local handmade products and flowers. To get a good impression of Olhão.
Enjoy the typical Portuguese atmosphere.
Walk through the village with its many cafes and restaurants to the harbor where there are numerous fishing boats.
Did you know that in the waters that surround Fuseta the largest colony of seahorses in Europe can be found?
