Great place to chill and relax. We stayed 3km outside of Lux which is more relaxing. However need to hire car to get around but plenty of taxi's around for nighttime.

We love Praia da Luz. It's a lovely beach for the family. We particularly like visiting in the early evening when it's slightly cooler for the kids to be able to properly play. A couple of decent food / drink places nearby, too.

As far as I know there is not. Unlike the other responder I am not a big fan of the Lagos market. In terms of the freshest produce the best market is in Alvor on Sunday mornings. Alvor is another 20 minutes east of Lagos.

I don't think so. I have been many times and can't say that I have seen anywhere advising that option. Lagos is a much bigger town so probably have more chance there.
