About The Owner

We are a retired couple who love Portugal and come here very often for the weather, golf, walking, bird watching and the very many social pursuits in a most friendly place. We enjoy gadgets, comfort and our leisure. This villa is modern, light, spacious and warm in winter and cool in summer. We like being comfortable!

Why The Owner chose Luz

We bought the land and had the property built to our specification. We have taken advantage of the sea views with a large veranda allowing us to eat and relax with a great view. We have designed the villa to benefit from the Algarve summer breeze and all windows are shaded from the direct sun. We have solar panels which provide heat for the underfloor heating (in the winter) and an exchanger for the pool heating.

As we have grandchildren we have provided all you can want for an enjoyable family holiday (included in the costs).

While we are only a short distance from the beach, our grandchildren like to spend most of their time in our large saline infinity heated pool which provides clear safe water which is kept free of debris with the overflow process.

There are many mature trees, in the enclosed garden, which provide shade to the lawns and garden. We have planted for both colour and fragrance.

There is a garage and ample parking.

What makes this villa unique

Although within walking distance of the restaurants and other amenities of Praia da Luz, we are at the end of a peaceful cul de sac and, merely by staying at the villa, can enjoy the full value of the sun, whether swimming or just lazing by the pool, enjoying a BBQ or having a drink with friends by the babbling brook like sound of the infinity pool.

A superb 4 bedroom villa that is exceptionally well equipped and maintained

  • 5 of 5

SanLucar is a beautiful villa in a quiet area of Luz but close enough to walk to local restaurants and the beach. The pool area is lovely and large enough to accommodate everyone being able enjoy themselves or just sit and take in the sun. The BBQ area is lovely for an evening get together with all facilities close by including a small fridge and sink. Inside is well equipped and there is plenty of space. The balcony area has a lovely sea view and again is large enough to accommodate 8 people.

Met and exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This villa is really impressive and I don't think you realise quite how lovely it is from the photos. It feels like a home rather than a rental and I cannot stress too much how helpful the owner is, nothing was too much trouble before we arrived and while we were there he checked with us too to make sure we had everything we needed. We didn't need anything because the villa literally had it all. The villa is accessed via its own gates and once they are shut you feel totally secure and private. I cannot recommend this villa enough - I think it is fair to say that it is the best I have hired. Thank you Barry for sharing your lovely home with us.

Amazing villa with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Barry & Ann for renting us their beautiful villa. It really is wonderful - fully equipped with everything you need, very well designed to make the most of the views and keep the bedrooms cool, whilst retaining the light. Secluded pool and garden area, not overlooked and with a great outside dining and BBQ spot. We whiled away most of our days by the pool! A lovely covered terrace upstairs, leading off the kitchen, with fantastic views out to sea. And the table tennis table was an added bonus, much hilarity ensued with some members of our party! We had a wonderful family holiday and sampled a few restaurants in Luz whilst there - Paulo's being a particular favourite, the fish was amazing. We have stayed in a fair few villas on both the Algarve and beyond, and all agreed that this was the highest quality one ever!

Great villa, everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

Delightful stay. Close to the town and restaurants, great view from the balcony by the kitchen, lovely pool and very well equipped. The upper floor is where you enter and is the main living area with a kitchen that has everything you could possibly need and a balcony area that has wonderful sea views. The lower floor houses the bedrooms, all of which open up to the beautiful pool and garden area. We couldn't have been more comfortable and Barry and all of the staff we encountered were extremely helpful. Thank you for an excellent holiday!

First class villa, superb location, perfect

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay - our 4th stay. The villa is immaculate, excellent facility home from home. The location is perfect, away from town but easy walking distance for restaurants. Holiday great for all ages and been enjoyed by 3 generations. Barry and Ann are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Looking forward to next years trip ! Lots of entertainment for children in the villa and a very equipped kitchen, however plenty of lovely restaurants to visit. A family friendly resort and we have had lovely holidays here and hope to continue to do so in the future.

A lovely week in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a very relaxing week at the villa. The villa is very well presented - the furnishings are all very nice and there's really everything you need provided; the kitchen is well equipped and plenty toys/games/DVDs to keep everyone entertained...

The pool is fantastic - a great size and the heating made it a lovely temperature. The owners had kindly arranged for the pool fence to be in place and also provided a stair gate which was a huge help with our toddler.

Everything made for a very relaxing and enjoyable week.
