An excellent villa in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is clean, well decorated and very spacious and we went with a group of six and all had a very enjoyable two weeks. The villa is a 5 minute walk out of Luz where all the amenities you will need are all readily available. Larger resorts of Portimao and Lagos are a short drive or bus ride away. Luz is an ideal resort for families and this particular villa has plenty of room for a large group. The pool is excellent with the opportunity to walk from your bedroom straight next to the poolside. There is a nice outdoor BBQ and eating area and a very warm sun deck on the roof.

The area is safe and fairly quiet and plenty of opportunities to go on walks and explore the local area. For the sporting members of the family, the water sports were a shirt drive away, there are plenty of golf courses around and even archery at Boavista. The local zoo is worth a visit and go karting and high ropes are a short drive away.

Overall an excellent villa, not in the big tourist resorts of the Algarve so much more relaxing for a family but still plenty to do if you are willing to explore.

Nice family holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa had everything we needed , facilities were very good. We were glad we arranged to have the pool heated as the weather was a bit unseasonably cool.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed Casa Verao and you found the villa had everything you needed. A shame the weather was not up to expectations but the pool as you say is great when heated.

Excellent villa in a quiet area of town. Clean, peaceful and a good size for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated in a quiet part of Luz, just a 5 minute walk from the beach and main amenities. There are plenty or bars and restaurants just a short walk away and a short drive will take you to Portimao, Lagos, Silves or Sagres.

There are plenty of things to do in the area for a family or for those just looking for a restful vacation this property is ideal. The villa is safe and secure, has fantastic views, especially from the sun terrace, and the pool is a good size and very clean, and the pool are is in the sun almost all day. There is an outside BBQ and a spacious kitchen, so we ate in several times. If you hire a car this can be put on the private drive (space for 2), and locked away if you go out.

There is plenty of sport available, go karting, water park, footgolf, four local golf courses and archery at Boavista Golf Club, as well as the normal water sports in normal season.

The villa is managed in Portugal by a couple who are very helpful if you need anything, meeting you on day one and only a call away if you need them.

We have stayed in many villas is Spain, Portugal and the Canaries and this was certainly one of the best and we would recommend this villa to any family going to the west Algarve, as Luz is a superb location in this region, away from the expensive tourist areas of Villamoura and Albufeira.

Wonderful villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Villa is in a good location within easy access of restaurants, shops and the beach. The villa has beautiful views over the ocean. The property has all the mod cons to make the holiday hassle-free. The sky sports was a hit with the football fans in the family as the season had just kicked off! Pool was lovely and warm and spotlessly clean. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: It is great when guests enjoy a hassle free holiday at Casa Verao because things can go wrong which are outwith our control. Each guest has different requirements and this time the football came up trumps. Would be delighted to have them back.

Perfect little home away from home, with a pool!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (6 adults, 1 baby) spent a lovely week at Casa Verao and would highly recommend it. It is a massive villa (the size cannot be appreciated by the pictures), with a large outside pool area, a sun terrace and more. The air conditioning was key for us given the baby and we're glad we chose it, given the heatwave we arrived in (mid June 2017). Overall this is a great place to spend a relaxing week (or two!).

Owner's Response: Typical slightly reduced temperatures now we are here but with 3 generations of the family at the villa we each like our own space and Casa Verao gives us that. Glad you found the aircon a benefit. Aircon can always be switched requested whilst at the villa. Glad you had a great holiday

Special interest holidays:



A short walk to the beach at Luz, where there are various water sports available (Chico we find is best) during the summer months. It is a 15 minutes drive to the vast Meia Praia beach at Lagos which is best for wind surfing or alternatively the small and intimate beaches in the fishing villlage of Burgau, Salema etc.


The nearest airport is Faro, 80km or 50 mins along the motorway. An excellent pre-bookable airport shuttle bus is available (details of recommended companies available on request). Car hire is not essential but can prove to be very useful for those guests who like to explore the surrounding areas, although there is also a very good local bus service.


Luz Parque is close enough to all local amenities but far enough away from traffic and beach noise to enjoy total seclusion and tranquillity (apart from the birds in the morning and the very occasional dog barking).

Further Details:

There is a Spa, gymnasium and tennis courts close by and 'Tiffanys' English speaking horseriding school is a 5 minute drive away. If you fancy a break from the beach there is also Lagos Zoo Park, 15 minutes drive from the villa, where it has its own monkey island. Slide 'n' splash water park and the Zoomarine, which has dolphin, seal and sea lion shows are a 30 minute bus or car journey from the villa about 10km from Albufiera. The new Algarve Autodrome Motor Sport complex is about 25 minutes away and hosts various major car, motor bike events and is an F1 testing venue. There is a Kart track at the Autodrome.
