About Christine Harris

We have owned the villa from new and as we have been visiting Luz for over 30 years it was inevitable that we would one day take the plunge and buy.Our children have grown up meanwhile but still love to come over as does our grandaughter (the first one, still waiting for a second!) We always hope that our clients enjoy a relaxing holiday as we do when we come.

Christine Harris purchased this villa in 2005

Why Christine Harris chose Luz

All the family have loved coming to Luz for many years as the location is perfect for a relaxing holiday with a beautiful beach with all amenities to hand,lovely restaurants at reasonable prices in the village and golf courses close by. Just a short drive or taxi ride is the town of Lagos if you want more shops and more action with bars and clubs for a lively evening out

What makes this villa unique

The villa has a perfect position for panoramic sea views. It is very spacious and nicely furnished.The surrounding area is quiet but just a 10 minute stroll away from the village and beach

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great holiday, villa is perfect and spacious. The sea view is amazing. Lynne and John Marples;Devon 09/05/14 The location was so peaceful but still only a few minutes coastal walk to Luz. The villa has everything you would need and well appointed. Will book again next year. Sophie and Tim Parfitt. Colchester. 11/08/13. Brilliant holiday and villa. Luz and beach are lovely, Giles Markham Croydon. 12/7/13

Wonderful Villa set in a Fantastic location for a

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing family holiday. This villa is truly well appointed, a hidden gem so much so I'm not sure I want to share this secret. we are already planning our return trip for next year!

We very much enjoyed the location, a great 10 min walk to all of the Luz's amenities along a gorgeous coastal track. Or even just a 5 euro taxi trip into Luz. I particularly enjoyed no hire car, having used the local supermarkets who deliver free of charge.

We often spent many times in the aparthotel just behind the villa as the kids enjoyed making friends in and around their pool and the bar and snack menu was a godsend. However it was so nice to be able to return to our own pool for some quiet time. My Mum, Dad and I enjoyed many nights on the balcony watching the ever changing views. Chris and Alan were so obliging, thank you for letting us stay xx

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Soul is so much better than the photos, its incredibly spacious. We were a group of 6 adults, all the bedrooms are large and there is plenty of wardrobe space plus the 3 bathrooms, so no delays in getting ready. The living area is grand with a high ceiling and because there is air conditioning we stayed cool. The kitchen is well equipped and again spacious, however we only cooked once and that was on the BBQ around the pool. The pool area is well proportioned and we could all get under shade when we wanted. We loved the outdoor terrace and got very lucky when on our last night we saw 2 whales in the distance. The views are stunning so we spent plenty of time sitting and watching. We walked the clifftop walk into Burgau (took just over an hour) wear pumps as it is rocky. Fabulous walk with great views and Burgau is a must. We used the buses 1.60 euro single journey, easy and often, we didn't hire a car. The supermarket delivers for free and does it at a time to suit. We ate out most of the time and tried 'Fortaleza' several times, food great. We couldn't get into some restaurants as hadn't booked but we didn't have a bad meal the standard was very high. We enjoyed the local festival and stayed up dancing til 2am with the locals, most nights we just ate out and walked home. Luz beach is lovely and the sea was warm enough (which surprised us). The Villa is also very clean.

Thank you to Christine and Alan for renting out your beautiful home.

A hidden gem from Steve and Michele

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks in this villa, the pictures on the web site do not give it credit, as it is such a well equipped and high spec villa. Waking up every day and having such a wonderful view over the ocean was one of the high lights. We were there with our 4 grown up children and a couple of their partners and it never felt crowded. The villa is just outside town which makes it really quiet to laze around the pool but only 10 minutes walk in to town where there are ample shops and restaurants. There is a long sandy beach about 15 minutes from the Villa which really did not get that busy during our stay with plenty of water sport activities you could get involved in. Also just 2 minutes walk from the villa you could climb down some rocks and go snorkelling . Only negative if you want late night partying this town doesn't have any, but other than that I would highly recommend a visit.

A fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned home from a fantastic week at this villa. It's a beautiful villa, lovely furnishings and the kitchen literally has everything you could wish for! :) The pool area and balcony are also superb with wonderful views out to sea. The hotel just behind the villa is really handy to quickly pop for a spot of lunch or to grab a quick ice-cream as well. Would recommend for family and friends to stay here.. It's so nice and the owners are really friendly and helpful as well. We would definitely go back!

Excellent. One of the best houses I ever rented.

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this house justice, at all. It is much bigger and more attractive than it seems in the photos. We arrived and all jumped for joy. Especially at the amazing view from the huge verandah.

It's an "upside-down house", bedrooms downstairs, two double bedrooms giving out on the pool area and two giving out onto the patio behind, with a huge lounge and kitchen upstairs taking advantage of the great view over the sea.

The house is beautifully decorated, ultraclean, and was truly a home away from home.

All mod cons, and wifi worked perfectly which is always appreciated when you are travelling with adolescents.

It's only 1 km walking distance from the town of Luz along the beautiful coastal track.

Highly recommendable.
