About the property

Villa in Praia da Luz, Luz, Lagos, Western Algarve, Portugal - Magnificent Location, 100 metres to Beach

Casa Sirrah is a top quality villa in a beautiful location only 1 minute walk down a quiet lane to the magnificent beach of Praia da Luz. Situated in the prestigious area of Parque Da Praia, this very well furnished and equipped villa has an attractive pool and garden, shared with 3 similar villas. Casa Sirrah offers first class accommodation in a delightful location, so close to the beach, all the amenities of Luz and to the striking Black Rock area overlooking the sea. Very close to restaurants, bars and local supermarkets. No need to drive. Free WiFi is available throughout the house. NEW for 2014 : You will have heard that all the English TV channels through the Astra satellite were lost when it was switched off. Not for us! At vast expense we have installed IPTV which works through the internet and gives you everything and more that you would have got at home. Please note that we do not allow pets or animals of any description at this property.

About Nigel Scandrett

The Scandrett family consist of Nigel and Jackie with children John (22) and Stuart (18). We have visited the Algarve and Spain on numerous occasions for family and golf holidays. The climate is the key. Much warmer than the South of France and guaranteed sunshine most of the year. We have a high standard of living in the UK and were looking for something with a 'wow' factor that ticked most of the boxes similar to what we enjoy in the UK, albeit smaller. In 'Casa Poco Loco' (Spain - Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2014) and 'Casa Sirrah' (Algarve) we found it. Locations so close to the beach and the nearby proximity of golf, supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars were key factors. Not typical rental properties. Everything designed to the highest standard - yours to enjoy!

Nigel Scandrett purchased this condo in 2012

Why Nigel Scandrett chose Lagos region

How can you beat being just 100 metres from one of the best beaches in the Algarve. A large pool shared with just 3 other properties. Secure gated location. No need to drive to access a range of a great range of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Only 5 mins drive from the fascinating town of Lagos with marina walks amid a mix of the traditional cobbled streets and modern quality shops. Much better value than the Faro end of the Algarve - more unspoilt.

What makes this condo unique

Frankly I think we have covered all this elsewhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

July - 'We had a lovely time, the location was spot on and your villa was just perfect from the toys for the boys, the pool, right through to the quality and layout of the furniture and fittings. It is more like a home than normal holiday accommodation. You must be very proud of your property, we felt privileged that we were able to enjoy it.'

Sept - Superb villa and fantastic location. Very baby friendly with the stair gate(at top of stairs).Very clean and all your home comforts for a relaxing stay.

June - A wonderfully equipped villa with absolutely everything you could need.

June - No better place to chill out. The villa has everything you could possibly need. you could not meet nicer people than the people of Luz.

Sept - We thought the villa was the best location in Luz, so close to the beach but in a quiet area. We all loved the garden and the pool and our 16 month old daughter the toys. Villa is great - everything here to feel at home.

Car: recommended


1 min walk along quiet lane to Praia da Luz beach, overlooked by the dramatic cliffs of Black Rock, and Luz village. Many other beaches close by. Burgau, quite stunning, 10 mins drive and Meia Praia (9km long) 15 mins drive are worthy of mention. Don't miss the most western point of Europe, Cape Vincent and its lighthouse. Don't wear a hat! Just a trifle windy.


Faro airport, served by many low cost airlines, is around 55 mins drive. Car hire is incredibly reasonable and there are plenty of companies to choose from. See our 'Notes' for one particular recommendation. There is also a 90 min train ride from Faro to Lagos, then just a very short cab ride, so you don't have to have a car, but it helps!


Lagos a fascinating small town with good shops and restaurants and a very attractive marina 10 min drive. Silves, an inland historic town with ancient castle 25 mins. Sagres at the western end of the Algarve, an old natural harbour 20 mins. Alvor, an old fishing village, with an attractive waterfront 15 mins. Many other small villages and attractions.

Further Details:

There are many cafes and restaurants in Luz, mostly within 10 - 15 mins walk, as well as supermarkets, a pharmacy, a bank, doctor, dentist and other shops. Tennis courts are close by. Lagos offers all these and much more!

Casa Sirrah is a privately owned family villa used by the owners, their family and friends for holidays, as well as for letting at the rentals indicated. It is professionally managed by a good local agent who is always on hand should any emergency occur. In the property there are instruction booklets for appliances.

Casa Sirrah - a home from home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Casa Sirrah, it felt like home. The pool and gardens are perfect. Better still is the location. Would certainly stay in Casa Sirrah again.

Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a perfect few days golf break with friends in Praia da Luz .Accomodation ,restaurants and amenities in the location were all first class. Just a pity that the excellent local golf courses beat me up ...as usual!!

Owner's Response: Delighted that this group of 4 golfers enjoyed the house and the surrounding area so much. Not having to drive to any of the bars & restaurants by the beach and within the village is a great plus. Three golf courses within a 15 minute drive makes the location perfect for short breaks.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well equipped villa a stones throw from the beach and walking distance to numerous very good restaurants.

Tucked away just yards from the beach this villa is in a small gated development which is very quiet and very peaceful, the patio which seems bigger than the others has the sun on it all day and its so relaxing to just lie on a sun bed and soak up the rays (even in March), the villa is well equipped, light and airy with 3 en suite bedrooms a decent sized dining table and a comfortable lounge, and of course its location is perfect for access to numerous golf courses in the area which we took full advantage of, definitely worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Delighted that this guest enjoyed the work we have put into making this villa one of the best well equipped in the area, one of the most secure and one so close to the beach and all amenities.
