About the Owner

Before we bought our home in Praia da Luz we drove around 12,000 miles over 18 months viewing properties in France, Spain and Portugal on our first trip we discovered the Western Algarve and we just could not better it.

Mark and I just love the sea & when we saw the sea view at Vilamar we had to buy the property this is now over 10 years ago. The lovely thing is our clients feel the same and year in year out the same families return and some have even now bought apartments on this homely complex! With our English manager Tanya on hand who has lived here for years rest assured your holiday starts on arrival.

Our children now 19 and 23 never tire of returning and have a network of friends in Luz.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send you a quick email and say what a fantastic time we had in Luz.

Everything about the holiday was fantastic - we flew from Bournemouth (very relaxed and easy going). The car was available on our arrival and we delivered it straight back to the airport (totally hassle free). Found the Apartment straight away, everything you promised it would be - fantastic views, lovely pool which the whole family loved, everything we could possibly wish for in the Apartment (and YES, we even saw the dolphins). Luz was fab, we and the kids loved the beach there - surfing the waves was great fun and took me and Graham back to our childhoods. We found loads of great places to eat and tried a couple of recommendations in your file, finishing our week by eating in The Dolphin. We went horse riding at Tiffany's and spent one day at Zoomarine, which the kids loved.

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us rent your lovely villa! We all had a fabulous time and did not want to come home. We enjoyed the pool, (always a sun lounger free) the local beaches and the fabulous restaurants. The children particularly loved the dolphin spotting trip in Lagos. Everything was so much more than we expected from such a last minute trip. Tanya (site manager) was great and very helpful, although I think we were out most of the times that she popped in to see if we were having a good time. Everything in the villa was all you needed for a family holiday and very clean. I would definitely recommend your villa to my friends and family. We didn't hire a car in the end and didn't mind the walk back from Praia da Luz in the evening. We ate so much lovely food, we felt we needed a good walk. Fort da Luz is the best restaurant and the ice cream factory outside is out of this world! The cab ride from beach to villa is under 5 minutes and only 4 euros. We did this sometimes in the daytime as we were travelling with young children. If it was just me and my husband we would have been happy to walk. The bus from Praia da Luz to Lagos is a good service and runs until quite late at night. It is a 15-20 minute trip. The villa is in quiet and peaceful surroundings and great for families or couples.
