Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this villa twice now and loved it both times!

The location is perfect, the views are wonderful and the BBQ area is great for evenings by the pool.

The place is always clean and tidy, and the cleaner that comes most days is friendly, and stelthy!

Would go their again next week if i could!

Activity and Interests


Luz Beach is 2 mins by car (10 mins walk). Its huge sandy beach is ideal for families. Water sports are available in the summer incl. diving, sailing, water skiing, banana boats etc. The smaller Burgau beach is 5 mins by car and has a fantastic beach bar. Meia Praia in Lagos is 15 mins by car and is ideal for windsurfing. The quiet beaches on the west coast (25 min drive) are ideal for surfing. Lessons can be booked.


The nearest airport is Faro and is less than 1hour drive along the A22 motorway. A hire car is not essential but is recommended. Car hire can be arranged by owner after confirmation of booking. Taxi transfers are approximately £60 each way. Taxi should always charge exact price displayed on taxi meter. Airport transfers (shared vehicle) are available and cheaper than taxi.


Praia da Luz has excellent facilities with many restaurants, bars, shops, beach bars and supermarkets. Baptista Supermarcado offers telephone ordering and delivery. Casa Borboleta is well known to them. There is also 3 banks, at least 4 ATM machines, a post office and 24hr medical centre.

Further Details:

The fishing village of Burgau is 5km west and has some lovely restaurants, especially Burgau Beach bar. Lagos (8 km east) is the most beautiful town in the Algarve offering great shopping, nightlife and a fantastic marina where dolphin trips, fishing and boat rides can be arranged. The West Coast offers incredible quiet beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. Beware that the sea can be very rough. Portimao (20km) east is the largest city in the western Algarve. To help ensure that you have as relaxing and stress free holiday as possible the owner will arrange car hire if required. Also a 'welcome pack' or full shopping order can be arranged for your arrival. The owners regularly use a fully qualified masseuse who will visit the villa for treatments and set up either outside or inside the villa. Again, this can either be arranged in advance or you can book at your leisure.
