Just back from another great winter getaway at Journey's End.
The accommodation, location and weather were all wonderful!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 weeks in and around Luz. There were just 3 days that had some rain, and evening temperatures can drop a bit, but otherwise it was sunshine and warmth....breakfasts on the balcony, overlooking the beautiful pool and garden, gentle strolls along the seafront (plenty of outlets open for a drink or ice cream), relaxing in the sunshine all afternoon and walking out again in the evening for a choice of good restaurants...not quite the January/February lifestyle back home!!
There's a wealth of places to visit within a short drive; we were never lost for something to do.
The bus link from Luz to Lagos is frequent and inexpensive, and the taxi fares very reasonable if you want a later night out in Lagos (several restaurants have good Fado nights; we thoroughly recommend the Barrigada restaurant for a Fado night...it's a simple, excellent value place adjacent to the fishing boat harbour, over the river from Lagos....but do book!)
If an evening in is on the books, the kitchen is excellent for self-catering and the log fire very cosy. T.V. and internet connection also very good.
The booking process and all communication with Roger, Margaret and the new local manager Tanya was faultless.
We hope to return to this beautiful and interesting part of the Algarve before too long, and wouldn't hesitate to rebook Journey's End.
Having stayed in villas and apartments throughout the Algarve over the last 20 years, "Journey's End " is up there as one of the best. From the straightforward booking process, sensible key retrieval and no requirement for outdated security deposits this started out well and just got better.
"Journey's End " is set in a peaceful location with easy parking and yet is close to all the amenities Praia da Luz has to offer. It was spotless inside, well equipped, very spacious, south facing with ample balcony and terrace space and is just a few steps from a lovely pool which is set in beautiful gardens.
On this occasion our visit was only for 4 nights before we went to another resort but we were so impressed we intend to return and that will be for a longer stay. Well recommended.
Visited in November 2018. Great location where the bustle of Praia Da Luz is still present. Temperature's still good, 18 - 21 degrees celsius.
The apartment is spacious, homely and modern, possibly with a 'Portuguese cottage' feel. Decoration and garden are to a high standard. And, on enquiring about rebooking, I understand it's going to be redecorated soon too. Too cold though for the outdoor swimming pool but it is their autumn!
Sooo recommended for the ease of booking, simplicity and balcony/master bedroom views.
I so wish I could add photos, you'd be there in a moment's notice.
Pleasant, effortless and more than welcoming. You might not want to leave. I'd recommend having a hire car too.
This is a fabulous property in a wonderful location. It's extremely well equipped and more spacious than the photographs suggest. There is plenty of room for four adults. Sitting on the south facing terrace, with a view over the gardens and pool area, soaking up the sun in December was a particular delight. The sheltered downstairs terrace is equally enjoyable for sun worshippers. The log fire is a welcome and cosy facility for cooler evenings; wood is readily available in local supermarkets and reasonably priced. There is plenty of parking available and the area feels very safe.
It is an easy 7-10 minute stroll to the seafront of Luz where there are various places to admire the sea view and enjoy a glass of wine (or two). Even in December there are plenty of restaurants open.
The local management team and cleaners are friendly and helpful and Roger and Margaret made the booking process extremely easy and always responded promptly to any queries - thanks to you all!
We thoroughly recommend this property and would love to return soon.
We have never written a review before as we have never been impressed enough but this holiday was different.
This accomodation is as good as its gets, clean spacious rooms, equipped to highest standard, full TV that includes sport chanels, air conditioning and to sumerise a real home from home.
The location is second to none, an easy short walk to the beach and all amenities yet in a lovely quite and relaxed area.
Roger and Margaret were super fast in responding to any queries we had and did all they could to make sure our stay was as great as it could be.
We will definitly be regulars from now on, thats how impressed we were.

Excellent Holiday Home
Believe everything that the owners of this beautiful holiday home have written about it. There was no hyperbole and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Journeys End.
Thank you so much, to use the phrase again. "It is what it says on the tin" Don't forget, returning guests get an automatic 10% discount.. So try us in the winter months, the sun is still there. Roger & Margaret
A Home from Home
The apartment is furnished to the highest standards in a good, quiet location. The rooms are large and would comfortably accomodate 5, should this be a requirement. All clean and tidy upon arrival with beds made up. The pool is spacious and gardens well maintained. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.
Great house, great location, great holiday!!Monte Lemos, Praia da Luz, Lagos, 8600, Portugal
The house was perfect - it couldn't have been better. It was so well equipped - we wanted for nothing. The children had a great time in the swimming pool and we could relax watching them. A lovely lady who lives in a house nearby gave them some toys that had belonged to her grandchildren so they were delighted. Luz is lovely with many great restaurants and nearby lagos is just beautiful. I have no hesitation in recommending Journeys End. We will definitely be back!!
Peace Tranquillity, wonderful position with attractive gardens.
All as expected. The holiday residence is well run and quiet. The owner is very nice and accommodating as were the managers. Would recommend to anyone.
Lovely family home in a great position. Second visit, just as good, Perfect position for a short walk into Luz.
ANOTHER fabulous trip to Luz. Seventh visit, see mt comment after the third visit. Thank you Roger & Margaret again for a great holiday.
We liked the size of the house and silent location.
Wonderful just what we needed. An extra big thanks to our hosts Roger & Margaret, who went out of their way to ease our booking and make our trip a success.
Owner's Response: Thank you kind people. No matter how many good reviews we get, it is always very rewarding to receive them, makes all our efforts worthwhile. Thank you again, made our day. Rog & Mac
Now regulars at "Journey's End" being our 5th visit.. In summary 10/10 again this year. Thanks again.
Superb home from home. Even though we were staying "out of season" we were spoilt for places to eat.
Excellent family villa, highly recommended. Roger was great at communicating and answering any questions before we went......Children, 12, 10 & 9, said it was the best holiday ever.
Here again 3rd visit. Says it all really.
Excellent family condo in Luz. The communication with the owners was exemplary, We would love to come again.
Just as it said on the tin. We highly recommend it.
A real treat.....Last but not least the very friendly contact with the owners is definitely a factor, which speaks for itself.
second visit, need I say more.
Third visit. We asked other families we met on the beach whether we should try another country/resort next year, we were told "you are looking for something that you have already found". Sums it all up really.
Simply excellent - Home away from Home...
Perfect retreat... A special holiday as we were getting married in the wonderful Church in Luz.....Roger & Margaret wanted us to have a great time and for nothing to cause us concern. They even arranged for a bottle of Bubbly and some flowers delivered to us on our wedding day. What a nice personal touch.
Fantastic Holiday in Praia da Luz. Your house was perfect, everything we could possible need was there. Thanks for all your great directions and advice...
Fine, Finer, Finest. We fully recommend this to anyone.
Great Family Holiday....
Felt like home from home, we are already looking forward to our third visit next year...
Absolutely fabulous all as described, thank you.
Lovely quiet position, yet handy for all amenities, lots to do based on a very welcoming comfortable home...
Portugal Holiday. The accommodation was as described, perfect....
What an excellent choice we made. Just returned from one of the best holidays ever.....
Back for a second year. For the hippy inside you, check out the stunning West Coast beaches with their surfing and camper vans. All in all a perfect holiday destination....
Holiday in 2007. Excellent house, nice pool, tastefully decorated. House well recommended and so is Luz for family with small children, for a relaxing holiday...
