Villa with Private Pool and Sea Views

Overview

Property

Updated: 01-Nov-2016
Rua das Lages 1,Villa in Praia da Luz, Nr. Lagos, Western Algarve - Peaceful Location, 1 minute Walk to the Beach

Located in a quiet part of Luz and originally the village cobbler's house, this old Portuguese cottage has been exquisitely and lovingly refurbished. It provides a perfect home-from-home holiday retreat, especially popular with couples and honeymooners. Once through the gate into the private front courtyard you enter the house and a haven of calm. The south-facing mature tropical garden and pool has been beautifully landscaped and is a peaceful oasis in which to completely unwind and relax.

Oasis in centre of Praia Da Luz Village

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this absolutely gorgeous villa quite a few times. What makes us come back - EVERYTHING about it. It is so charming and secluded you forget you are right in the middle of the village. VERY quiet. The decor is in keeping with a p0rtuguese probably victorian cottage. Hand picked pieces, none of the soul-less decor you get in a lot of holiday homes. Comfortable sofas, comfortable beds, with enough cushions to match a 5 star hotel, plenty of hangers, bathrobes provided too - lots of individual pieces, including fresh flowers dotted throughout the villa, with a kitchen that is better equipped than my one at home, every gadget you could want, serving bowls, indoor and outdoor glasses, crockery and cups galore, tin foil, kitchen roll, cling film. Candles for indoors and outdoors. Free wifi, books, games dvd player. cd player. Some UK Freeview channels on the TV. Wet room type shower and bathroom. Immaculately clean, the villa has lots of mirrors in it all cleaned to sparkling. The back terrace is our favourite you can open up the floor to ceiling windows and view "your" garden from on high. The real jewel of this villa though is the pool and garden area - think palm trees, moroccan washed colours on the walls, lemon trees, all wrapped around the most charming infinity pool that even has its own seating ledge (unheated but I think you can ask for heating). So quiet, no noise from neighbours been there lots of times and never heard a peep. Outdoor tables, chairs, sun loungers. It truly is an oasis. First time we went there we never even went to the beach it was so magical. Location wise right in the middle of the village yards from the sea front, Luz main beach less than 5 minutes walk. Supermarkets, restaurants, bars less than 5 minutes walk (small supermarket 1 minute round the corner handy for topping up the tonic water). And yes the welcome pack, wine beer, juices, bread cheese, biscuits, enough to keep you going for a couple of days. Very warm welcoming owners too. BOOK IT! Promise you will NOT be disappointed, just leave a week free for us!

WOW what a Villa!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Having looked at the photos of Casa Chique we had a good idea of what to expect when we arrived. However, in reality it is so much better. From a small frontage the villa just keeps opening up as you walk to the rear of the property. The furnishings are comfortable and appropriate for any time of year. The kitchen is well equipped and we liked the wet bar in the conservatory. Everything is in keeping with a traditional Portuguese house, it's not filled with stainless steel and glass, but items that complement their surroundings. The pool area is wonderful, lots of furniture, lovely pool with steps and area to sit and have a drink. Although not a large garden, it is filled with mediteranean trees and plants and the only time you can be seen by neighbours is if you sit at the waterfall end of the pool, though even then it would be through the palms. We were amazed at the "welcome pack" which included bars of chocolate, three types of wine and gorgeous flowers. There was certainly enough fresh food to keep us going for a couple of days.

All in all it is a well placed, comfortable, relaxing and indulgent place for a holiday. We will return!

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

There is a small sandy beach and rocks approximately 100 metres from the house. The main beach with its famous Black Rock and esplanade of shops, cafes and restaurants are 5 minutes walk.

The beautiful and varied beaches towards Sagres and up the west coast are all easily reachable by car.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Faro, about one hours drive from Luz.

A car is not essential as everything in the village is within easy walking distance of Casa Chique however it would be recommended in order to explore more of the area.

Distances:

The historic town of Lagos is about 8 kms from Luz. There is plenty of sightseeing within the old walled town as well as boat trips, several beaches and a wide variety of shops, markets, restaurants and bars. A short drive west of Luz is Burgau which has a beach flanked by cliffs and a popular beach bar. Other places of interest are the fort at Sagres, a drive through the Monchique hills to the spa town of Caldas with its natural springs, and Silves, the old capital of the Algarve.

Further Details:

Luz is very well served with an excellent supermarket, health food shop, pharmacy, post office, bank and three cash machines. There is a wide variety of shops, cafes and restaurants offering Portuguese and International cuisine. There is also the Prive nightclub, an English-speaking doctors surgery and Anglican services are held in the church. Around the corner from Casa Chique is a smaller, very convenient supermarket, a cafe, shops and restaurants. Plenty of activities are available locally such as tennis, golf, microlighting, diving and various other watersports.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: Casa Chique is an old property and the thick walls, aided by ceiling fans, keep the house very cool in the summer heat. Wall-mounted wafer heaters are fitted around the house and in the colder months the fan-assisted woodburning fireplace heats the house beautifully. Outside: The terrace room opens out onto the garden and pool with seating areas and lounge chairs. Under a shade of Bouganvillia is the barbecue and outside buffet area - perfect for alfresco entertaining. The freeform saltwater, pebble pool has generous integral steps, an underwater bench seat curving around a gorgeous palm tree and is roughly 4 meters x 6 meters. A waterfall flows into the shallow pool on the lower terrace which has loungers - a sun worshippers paradise! Utility Room: Utility area with washing machine, iron and ironing board. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen, towels and utilities and WI-FI are included. The bedlinen is changed once a week. Towels are changed twice weekly and pool towels are provided for use outside. Other: The terrace room overlooking the garden is furnished with bamboo lounge furniture, a dining table which seats six, sterio and bar and utility area with sink and washing machine.
