You are welcome to use the television, microwave, gas cooker, electric oven, or fireplace and enjoy the nice view of the Luz valley on your terrace or balcony. There are two kinds of apartments, T1 for two people and T2 for four people. Optional two extra persons can also sleep in the lounge on the couches.

In your backyard, you will find a huge swimming pool surrounded by a big garden to relax. There is also a children’s playground and table tennis equipment. You and your neighbors can organize barbecue evenings as there is a special area for grilling and hanging out. Also, with the free parking spaces, you don’t have to worry about parking your car. The location is just perfect as it is a short walk to the beach, cafes, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, and organic stores.

ASA Algarve Sea Adventures Portugal Surf Camp Program

If you have been wanting your children to try surfing, then you have certainly come to the right place and found the experts in the field. Kids under the age of 12 need a little more supervision. To be able to provide this important individual attention, the ASA team operates in small groups with one surf instructor for every four kids.

Children also have the ability to learn surfing faster, easier, and very differently from adults. Therefore, the lessons are especially designed with children in mind. Thanks to the one-is-to-six ratio and the additional nanny service on the beach, the ASA team is able to create a safe and caring atmosphere while teaching surfing.

Each of the three surfing sessions will consist of about two hours of water time, including coaching and lessons. The surf coaches and nanny on the beach are all fully-qualified and friendly. You will be taken to the spots at the diverse beaches on the South and West coast, and pick up and drop off at your accommodation or meeting point is arranged everyday. A surfboard, wet-suit, and changing poncho will be provided for you and your little ones during lesson hours as part of the retreat package.

Plan your personal day as you wish as you are in a self-catering apartment so wake up at 7 or at 11. Cafés, restaurants and supermarkets are all close by.

  • 12:15 Meeting at our Quinta Surf Shag - getting the boards, wetsuits, lycras

It takes just seven minutes of walking to the beach and to the city center.

How to get there

Driving directions from Faro Airport (FAO)

  • Once you are at the roundabout leading to the motorway, head into the direction of Sagres and Vila do Bispo on the N125. You will soon get into a newly-built roundabout.
  • Take the exit to Luz, the one after the exit to Sagres and Vila do Bispo, and stay on that road for five minutes.
  • After that, you will see white buildings on the left-hand side and at the entrance, you see a small sign that says Quinta Formosinho. If you drive past the brown sign that says Praia, you have missed the apartment complex because it is located 100 meters in front of the sign.
