Great villa, in a great location - excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the villa and I couldn't keep my daughters out of the pool! Villa met our needs perfectly and is in a great location. We loved Praia du Luz and Lagos and I expect that we will be staying there again in the future. The beach was great and combined with the rock pools made it perfect for my crab hunting kids - and the unexpected highlight was catching a live octopus!

The whole booking process and arrival was very straightforward with Chris and Ann with Laurinda providing excellent local support. The villa had everything we needed and the maids coming in was perfect along with the friendly pool chap. We didn't need a car as the Villa was in the centre with the Baptista (next door) and Spar (2 mins) supermarkets very close by, beach 5-10 mins and the bus to Lagos 5 mins away.

A lovely relaxing holiday.

Lovely cottage in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay here for a week in July. The cottage has everything you need, including a well equipped kitchen and a washing machine, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Beach is a 5 minute walk away, and supermarket and restaurants are very close by, but still the cottage is in a quite area. Highly recommendable!

Lovely quiet break in the algarve

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this lovely villa for a week. There is everything you need to make it a home away from home. The villa is set just a few minutes walk away from the beach, in a nice quiet residential area. The local supermarket is literally 20m away - so very easy to get your groceries. There are several restaurants in the immediate area, and more along the sea front. All are reasonably priced. There is a good bus service which goes frequently into nearby town of Lagos - well worth it for a day out. The beach is lovely golden sand (no pebbles). There are sunbeams available to hire, but if you walk further along, there is another batch, which are cheaper (€10 for 2 sun beds and a parasol). If you are after a massage, then there are also massage tents offering a range of treatments - reasonably priced too.

To summarise, this villa is perfect for those wishing to have a nice quiet relaxing holiday.

Outstanding property

  • 4 of 5

Outstanding property in the quiet but beautiful resort of Praia Da Luz. 2 good size bedrooms and large kitchen/diner. Also 2 great balcony areas along with a fantastic pool. Close by to 2 good supermarkets and plenty of restaurant options within walking distance. No need to hire a car.

It was very hot during our stay and the lack of air con was our only downside.

Just returned from yet another brilliant stay

  • 5 of 5

Usual standards prevail, tried out the new washer and fridge-freezer, and were able to use our I-pods through the music centre (remembered the wires) ....all excellent thanks. Internet and Satellite TV a bonus. Property is very clean with memory foam beds to sink into after a hard day sight seeing or sunbathing. Although been to Luz many times now managed to try out different restaurants there and in Lagos thanks to Chris and Ann's recommendations. Luz is very relaxing a great place to unwind with brill beaches - it always feel like 'coming home'. You must visit Blue Wave beach and restaurant- go through Burgau for about 1 mile, and watch for the sign half hidden in a bush! Certainly recommend to family/friends/work colleagues.
