A really lovely comfortable villa.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very spacious and had everything you need to make it a home from home. Lovely pool and in a lovely quiet area so no noise at night!

Very private with no one over looking you. Excellent wifi and tv for relaxing or when you have had enough of the sun. It really was peaceful and very relaxing which is just what we wanted. A 10 minute walk into town was perfect for us and our 8 year old which we enjoyed after eating too much at night! Cannot fault our stay in this villa. Will definitely be back.

Fabulous Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Portugal for a few years and this is definitely the best villa we have stayed in. It was spotlessly clean but with a home from home feel to it. The facilities in the villa were great and the pool was wonderful. There are awnings around the pool which can be used to provide shade where needed and the pool blanket meant that the pool temperature was comfortable throughout the day. The veranda and BBQ areas gave us ample places for outdoor eating and friends that visited were equally impressed with the villa and its location. Would definitely book to stay here again!

Really lovely Villa with beautiful sea views.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to you both, for the use of your villa for 2 weeks, it was absolutely perfect all round. The villa has everything you need for a self-catering holiday, and really clean through out. We loved the patio area, for breakfast in the morning and to watch the sun go down in the evening. Its a lovely walk from the villa into Luz, a bit longer coming back ! but well worth it. There is a lovely beach, and enjoyed the beach front restaurant. Would love to come again, if you will have us.

Excellent family villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this villa have taken a lot of trouble to ensure it has everything you need. It is a family home, not just a rental property. Spacious with terrazas, a barbecue if you want it and a great swimming pool. All the rooms have mosquito screens so you can sleep with the windows open. It's a bit of a walk ( 15 mins or so ) to the beach but easy to park generally. Luz is a pleasant family 'village' with several good places to eat - and nearby Lagos is a great night out. This is a really nice house in a great location - you couldn't ask for more for a family holiday. The 'visitors book' at the house is packed with comments from happy families who plan to return!

From the Owner

Suitable for family and adults alike with space for privacy or family activities. Close to restaurants and the night life available in Luz whilst giving easy access to the beach and facilities for children. The bus route is very close and allows exploring without the need for a car. The local supermarkets do free delivery so a car is not essential.

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.

Peace and quite with stunning views that is within walking distance of the village. A good sized pool to cool off in yet a large enough villa that is easy to maintain but can accommodate the family.
