Luxurious Villa in Luz with Pool and Amazing Sea Views



Updated: 24-Oct-2016
Villa in Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - Located in a Charming Village, 5 mins to the Beach, Close to Golf Courses & Watersports. Wifi inc.

The villa is a few minutes walk from Luz beach. Traditionally Luz has been a fishing village specializing in octopus potting. Today Luz is a small yet thriving and very beautiful beach resort, the main attraction being its beach with its arced bay and stunning headland; the Rocha Negra. The surrounding beaches are all beautiful and unique. Praia de Porto de Mós can be reached on foot along the cliff road. The picture postcard Praia dona Anna is just outside Lagos and the Atlantic Costa Vicentina beaches near Sagres are breathtaking and wild. Lagos itself, which served as the headquarters for many of Henry the Navigator’s overseas expeditions, is also worth spending time in. Much of the town is still surrounded by Roman walls, while a large imposing fort near the entrance to the harbour serves as a further reminder of the area’s maritime links. To get firmly off the beaten track visit the Serra de Monchique nearby, which has become famous for its varied plant life and thermal spas.

Thanks for a fabulous holiday in the Algarve. The villa was beautiful, and we had perfect weather all week. I will definitely recommend VillaLuz to my friends - Jen Slaughter

Back from a fantastic week in Luz. The villa was beautiful and perfect for us. It had everything we needed and more. Thank you for giving us the use of it for our week. We really enjoyed our time there and the location was perfect. We did so many things: a trip to the Monchique mountains, the walk to Burgau, shopping in Lagos, Cape de St. Vincent and Sagres, dolphin watching which was fantastic and an exhilarating trip in the ringos. Also a trip to the Caves and Grottos in Lagos and of course swimming each day on the beach or at the lovely pool which was so relaxing. Thank you once again and I'd certainly recommend both Praia da Luz and the villa to all my friends and family. - Jo Carroll

uncomfortable beds

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property was clean and well equipped, but there were several irritations.

We did not find out until after booking there was a  20 EURO charge for someone to meet us at the chalet to give us the key!

The person greeting us was friendly but gave little information about the chalet. He told us about the shops and restaurants after we asked, gave us the wifi codes and pool access numbers, but did not show us the pool and most importantly the gate release switch to leave the pool. The biggest frustration was that he did not explain that the various sun beds around the pool were not for general use and hence it was embracing when we realised we were using other peoples beds.

Most problematic was that mattresses were worn, lumpy and extremely uncomfortable, giving rise to serious back pain for us. The following day we emailed the proprietor and she promised to try and get mattress toppers and failing that would give us £100 refund. The mattress toppers never materialised spoiling the holiday due to lack of sleep.

We requested a late checkout from the person who greeted us who verified that this was ok.

The proprietors attitude was unhelpful, dismissive and intolerant of our concerns.

On our return she refunded us just £55 as compensation stating the deduction of £45 was for the late checkout, something that was never mentioned to us when requested.

This could be a nice holiday chalet with new mattresses and a little more information on arrival.

Owner's Response: Mattresses were supposed to be replaced at the beginning of this season but unfortunately due to travel issues we could not get to Portugal to do so. They will be replaced at the end of this season. We have not by the way had other complaints but do agree with this part of the review. The 20 Euro charge is explained prior to departure, apologies if this was missed somehow. This is normal practice across the world on various property sites for key drop off etc. The property manager is an extremely busy person and does his best but this was high season he sometimes does not have the time to be as thorough as might be desired. The release button to get out of the pool is not obvious, he should have mentioned this. The loungers by the pool, however are all different and ours have the number of the villa on them so not sure how this was missed. The owner needs to be informed prior to, or during a stay that a late checkout is required. As this did not happen then one of the owners felt that it was necessary to charge for the fact that a late clean etc. was required at additional costs. A refund was still given for the other problems which was at the owner's discretion.

Great villa and pool, lots of space and with everything you need. Loved Praia Da Luz..

  • 4 of 5

Really nice comfortable villa set in a quiet area of Praia Da Luz. The villa was equipped with everything we needed. We were impressed with the lovely pool which is big enough for a decent swim and plenty of space for relaxing on the loungers. It's a 10 minute walk to the beach and main areas of the resort. Uphill coming back but manageable. Enjoyed meals at some lovely restaurants and the dolphin watching and grotto boat trips directly from the beach. Easy access to public transport. We visited Lagos and Burgau.

Great Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to have a holiday and Liz is such a nice person to deal with. I am disabled and cannot climb stairs so Liz got the ground floor bedroom fitted out for me which was a great help.

I would highly recommend both the house and Liz to anyone.

Thanks again

Brian from Derry.

Peaceful but also adventurous holiday

  • 5 of 5

I would really recommend this villa and the location is amazing. There are so many places to visit nearby and so many things to do but also just relaxing in the gardens, on the roof terrace or at the pools is also a perfect way to spend some time.

The villa has everything one could need and more. The food in the restaurants nearby is excellent and the Portuguese are very friendly.

Have now visited Praia da Luz twice and am looking forward to another trip to the Algarve soon. This is a great place to stay.

From the Owner

Hello, I live in London and am used to the stress that working in the city involves. I went on holiday in Portugal 4 years ago and travelled down the coast from Porto to the Algarve and fell in love with Luz. I have done a lot of travelling in the past decade and have seen many beautiful villages, towns and beaches. Luz and its environs are up there with the best of them in relation to its beautiful scenery, fantastic food and restaurants and value for money. I liked the area so much on my first visit that I started looking at villas and chose this one owing to its sea views, location and the spaciousness that it provides. The pools and gardens are also very beautiful. I hope that you take the opportunity to enjoy my villa too. Hope to hear from you soon, Liz.
