Why Ivor Hollinshead chose Luz

We fell in love with Praia da Luz on our first visit. It reminds us of a Cornish Village with its friendly community, it's beautiful beach and it's variety of little bar's and restaurant's.

Everything is within walking distance of the Villa and you have the best of both world's, you can go out and enjoy the local hospitality or you can choose to stay home and enjoy all the home comforts that our Villa has to offer.

Praia da Luz is the perfect holiday destination for all ages and offers a great base to explore further towns along the coast.

What makes this villa unique

Our Villa has been luxuriously furnished, it has been used as a second family home since we purchased it and has only recently been offered for rent. We have taken great care to ensure that it has everything that you might need and we are confident that it offers a real home from home holiday (with the added benefit of Sunshine)!

Guestbook comments from the owner

hi all

just want to give you some feedback about the villa, apologies for delay, but we have had a few things to sort out, after getting home.

Villa was great, home from home,but with fantastic Atlantic views.Beautiful.  

We had a great time with all the family, and baby Johnny had his first birthday whilst we were there. The villa was wonderful in every way.

Fantastic spacious property, ideal for a family.

  • 5 of 5

Situated just a short walk into the resort centre, this is an ideal place to stay with or without a car. The property itself is very spacious (giving room for timeout from the rest of the party if needed) and the views from the first floor are wonderful. My family (including a child of 10, a teenager of 19 and an elderly grandparent) had a great time. Having your own pool is definitely an added bonus. Whilst this property is part of a larger complex, because of its prime location (front row of properties with no other buildings directly in front), it feels more private than you might expect.

The local supermarkets (Spar and Baptista), provide a delivery service so even without a car you can do your food shopping with ease. Enough variety of friendly bars and restaurants to suit everyone's likes.

We will definitely look to return to this property for future holidays.

The family beach of Praia Da Luz {beach of light} known as probably the best beach in the Algarve, is less than 10 mins walk away offering a selection of water sports and also a rock area ideal for exploring. It is well serviced by bars and restaurants. There are also several other beaches in the Algarve which can be reached by car.


Faro airport is approx 88km away (approx 45 mins drive). Driving is easy along the recently built motorway and car hire is recommended for exploring all that Algarve has to offer. Car rental is readily available at the airport and in Luz. Taxis run from the centre of Luz and there are also buses that run to several locations. A meet and greet service is now available at the airport with transportation to the villa for up to 6 passengers for a cost of 70 euros each way (1 way bookings available)


Everything that Praia da Luz has to offer is less than a 10 mins walk away. The harbour town of Lagos is less than a 10 mins drive away and offers a large variety of shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife. There are also several major supermarkets nearby. The newly opened 'Aqua Portimao', less than 20 minutes by car is the newest shopping mall in the algarve. It has many English names such as Footlocker, H&M, Claires accessories & Primark. It also offers a variety of bars and restaurants within.

Further Details:

There is a tennis court within the development available to guests for a small fee, payable locally.
