Guestbook comments from the manager

Just to say thanks and also say you have a super villa. We had a great time and it was very easy to feel at home as it felt like a home from home. The girls loved it and the pool. It was up, breakfast and straight into the pool and then off out and about. The weather was great, seemed strange to complain about it being cold when sitting in a breeze at around 24 degrees and drinking cocktails, wow what a hard life!!! It was brilliant.

Delightful location, perfect property

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four including 2 teenagers and have rented through VRBO often. This property listing sounded great and it was even better when we arrived. We visited in the off-season. Approx. 30% of the town was open including English pubs, Irish pubs, Chinese and Portugese restaurants, good grocery store with metropolitan grocery store in Lagos, 15 min. away. A good clinic is available in Luz, open during regular business hours. Hospital and police are located in Lagos. The temps were in the low 60s daily, we enjoyed breakfast on the covered balcony which faces East, overlooking our private pool, lovely garden below and ocean in the distance. We were comfortable wearing t-shirts with a sweater. The walk down to the village square and beach is 5 minutes. The walk back is uphill which we did not find strenuous. Neighbors and townspeople were pleasant and welcoming. The owners or staff were available for questions. Every need is anticipated in this well-furnished villa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again and stay longer.

Owner's Response: It is lovely to hear you enjoyed your holiday in Villa Miranda. Our decision to buy the villa was entirely influenced by that beautiful panoramic sea view from the lounge and veranda and everything else fell into place behind that: quiet neighbourhood, walk to restaurants and beach, friendly Portugeuse people, great local food and scenery. So our initial instincts proved 100% correct!

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a fantastic holiday with my husband and daughters aged 19 and 15. The villa was everything we needed, it was furnished to a high standard and kept very clean during our stay as was the garden and pool. The photos of the view of the veranda does not do it justice, we could have spent the day watching the Atlantic with its fishing boats and wind surfers. The weather was very warm for the 2 week stay but there was always some shade you could relax in. The hill is steep but unless you have a disability this would not be a problem. Having Luz so easy to hand and our own pool was a luxury. A car is useful to travel to some lovely nearby beaches and 2 good water parks. I recommend the Amici restaurant and the Fort on the beach, both served very good and reasonably priced food.

Owner's Response: Delighted that you and your family had a great time in our villa! The fantastic sea views from the veranda was the prime reason we bought the villa. We appreciate what you say about our photos of the sea views from the veranda not doing it justice but we keep trying! I guess nothing beats seeing it in reality! Apart from the terrific sea views the fact that the village and beach are within easy walking distance were also very important factors when we chose to buy the villa. We try hard with the invaluable help of the villa manager to maintain the high standards and quality of our villa and many of our friends and guests fall in love with the place aswell! Though a car is not necessary when staying here, it does give you the freedom to visit so many other fabulous beaches, villages and stunning scenery along the Western Algarve.

The Western Algarve is an area of great natural beauty with dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches and copious small, colourful fishing villages.

Drive along the coast to Cape St. Vincent and up the west coast to find miles and miles of dramatic, towering cliffs, little coves and fishing villages clinging to cliff sides. With so many beautiful beaches to choose from, you may even have one all to yourself. From the Monchique mountains inland there are views of the whole coastline from the wooded hills clothed with pines, almond and cork trees. The spa town of Monchique has small cobbled streets and alleyways and speciality foods from the area, including the signature dish of piri-piri chicken, and has many craft outlets selling local pottery, handcrafts, rugs and artwork.

The wonderful, historic regional capital, Lagos, 3 miles from Luz has an attractive paved shopping area, many restaurants, nightlife as well as a large yacht Marina.

This beautiful area has sunshine, beaches and an easy, friendly atmosphere. The profile of Luz village is low-rise, with several small supermarkets, a couple of banks, a post office and some gift shops. The overgrown village has a great many restaurants with delicious fare to suit all tastes, ranging from Portuguese to Italian and Indian. The gorgeous sandy beach in Luz has a Blue Flag for water quality and services and the delightful paved promenade to the beach from the village is lined with palm trees with occasional seats facing seaward for relaxing with a fabulous view. Various water sports are available at the beach, and there are sunbeds for hire near the beach bar.

Visitors love the wonderful scenery and climate in this area, and the genuine friendliness of the local people, the delicious food prepared from local fresh fish, meats, vegetables, fruits, and of course the excellent local wines. Small wonder that so many visitors return here year after year!

Other Activities: Cliff walks, cycling, bird watching, whale & dolphin watching and cave/grotto boat trips.

  • The villa is beautifully situated in an elevated position overlooking the bay and village. The walk back uphill from the village may be difficult for the elderly or infirm. (We think it helps burn off the extra calories from eating too much good food in the great restaurants!!) There is complimentary Wi Fi for guests staying in the villa.
