About Grace Pink

I live in England on the edge of the Cotswolds. I have 3 children. I have run a property company of both commerical and residential properties for about 25 years.

I have owned a house in Brittany, France for about 20 years and wanted to buy a property where we could go in the cooler months to enjoy some sunshine.I enjoy living in the country but always look forward to going to Portugal especially when the weather at home is dark, grey and cold.

I am used to letting out property in my day to day work and I also let out the property in France and I have a caravan in Cornwall which I also let out so I have experience of what people expect in order to have an enjoyable holiday.

Grace Pink purchased this villa in 2004

Why Grace Pink chose Luz

We have friends who have holidayed in the west coast of the Algarve for over 20 years and said that their favourite place was Praia da Luz so we decided we would go and see for ourselves.The first time we went to Luz we fell in love with it.The beautiful beaches, the lovely blue skies and the warm sunshine was just what we were looking for. The added bonus was although we were in a foreign country the local people all spoke very good English so there was no need to learn Portuguese.

Luz is only 45 minutes drive from Faro airport, the town of Lagos is only a 10 min drive away.

We looked at several beaches around the area but decided that Luz had the best. After looking at several properties in Luz we felt this one met all our needs and today we are still pleased with the choice we made.

What makes this villa unique

We were looking for a villa which was a short walk from the town and beach, not overlooked, has a private swimming pool and with fantastic sea views and that is what we were lucky enough to find.

It is only 5-10 minutes walk to the shops and beach so you can just walk down in the evening to enjoy a delicious meal at one of several restaurants in the town.

You can lounge around the lovely big pool which is private and not overlooked. The gates to the property can be locked and so it is very secure.

What I look forward to is to wake up in the morning and look out to see the fantastic sea views.

We are fortunate that the management company who look after the villa has their office is literally just down the road.

Praia da Luz has greatly expanded in recent years from the fishing village it used to be. The safe sandy beach stretches round the bay and is approx 10 mins walk away. There are 2 water sports centres offering sailing, windsurfing and deep sea diving.


Faro is the nearest airport and with the advent of the new motorway, which goes from one end of the Algarve to the other, the journey now only takes just under 1 hour. If you want to get out and explore the rugged scenery of the west coast and the neighbouring towns, car hire is advisable.


The city of Lagos is 10km away with a wide variety of restaurants and it's splendid Marina. Also worth a visit is the town of Portimao, good for shoe shopping and only 30 mins down the motorway.

Further Details:

Luz has a modern supermarket, which sells many familiar imported items, a pharmacy and a medical centre in the village. A trip on a rib boat from Lagos Marina to see the dolphins in Lagos bay is a thrill for children and adults alike or take a jeep safari into the heart of the Algarve countryside where you can visit a local ‘distillery’ and sample Medronho - the potent local drink.
