About The Owner

Rod Murden

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Luz

The Praia da Luz area is superb for families in particular providing safe beach environments and a warm friendly atmosphere from the local population.Holiday attractions are varied and all within a short driving distance.

Experience the natural beauty of the coastal landscape by walking to local towns and villages such as Burgau and Porto da Mos along the coastal paths

What makes this villa unique

The provision of a large swimming pool at our villa allows families to play in the water all day without having to venture too far. The villa being only 1 mile from the centre of Luz and the beaches means facilities are close but you can have quietness if you desire, as our property is not overlooked.

Should you wish to eat at home rather than at local restaurants the villa has a spacious fully equipped kitchen and barbecue area for dining at home. A satellite TV with 40" screen provides entertainment for those who need it in a very large lounge with wide sea views as well as the hills to the rear.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just spent a very relaxing 10 days in your villa, the accommodation was fantastic truly a home from home, plenty of space so that everyone could have a little quiet space to themselves when necessary, the swimming pool was brilliant our youngest loved it. Only comment I would add is although the photos on the website give a good indication to the villa accommodation it is much more impressive when you see it in person.

Regards Gillian Stewart, July 2010.

We have just returned from praia da luz today after a really lovely 10 days in your fab villa. We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay, it really was a home from home and ticked all the boxes! You really have a lovely home. We watered your plants too!! We have consoled ourselves with the thought that we may be able to come back again next year if you are still renting it out……………..!

Kind regards

Outstanding villa in beautiful spacious grounds with brilliant pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful villa which the owners have gone to great lengths to make a home from home. It wasn't just the spacious, beautifully furnished rooms,(the upstairs lounge is amazing),the large well tended garden and the immaculate pool which afforded total privacy. We have never stayed in such a well stocked property. From cleaning materials to books and dvds, to the kitchen crockery and utensils.We wanted for nothing and were made to feel welcome and relaxed.

The property enjoys a large corner site in a peaceful residential area. The grounds are well stocked with comfy sun beds, parasols, tables and chairs. There is a traditional built in BBQ which we used many times. All in all we had a lovely time and certainly hope to return.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your villa. This was our first time in Luz. This villa is beautiful, very spacious in good size grounds with a big pool. Nice quiet location within 15 minutes walk of the Town centre with its shops and bars. Fantastic beaches within easy reach and a trip to lagos is well worthwhile.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

During the last eight years we have travelled to this Villa on at least five occassions with each visit always being better than the last.

The villa itself is ideally located in a quiet area with local shops, bars, restaurants and the beach no more than a ten minute leisurely stroll away. Within the large well kept grounds of the property is a great sized swimming pool with plenty of pool furniture available (sun lounges, tables, chairs)for those who enjoy spending their days around the pool in the Sun. There is also a 'built in' BBQ located next to the pool which was ideal for our relaxing nights in or those BBQ'd snacks through out the day.

Inside the villa there are three sleeping areas comprising of a large master bedroom upstairs which has its own balcony and ensuite facilities. There are a further two double bedrooms downstairs which have the use of the Villa's main bathroom situated just outside the bedroom doors.

The Villa's modern kitchen has all the facilities and equipment we required, whether we were making a quick snack or preparing and cooking large meals for the group. The kitchen also has the added bonus of a dishwasher which saved on many debates regarding the washing up.

There are two lounging areas within the Villa, one situated next to the open plan kitchen looking out onto the pool area and the second lounge located on the first floor displaying spectacular panoramic views out over the town of Luz and the Atlantic Ocean.

If like ourselves you have outgrown the 18-30 holidays and want somewhere to relax and unwind, then this is the ideal location and venue. However, if you do fancy a cheeky night out with drinks, music and friendly people then the lively town of Lagos is only ten minutes away by car or taxi.

The Portugese Algarve is a beautiful part of the world with the town of Luz being no exception. Staying at this Villa has helped us enjoy everything that is great about the Algarve and we are definitely looking forward to returning in the near future.

We cannot recommend enough!
