About the property

Villa in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location 2 Minute Walk To Beach,shops and restaurants close by

Situated right in the centre of Praia da Luz this lovely, spacious villa has easy access to all that Luz has to offer - lovely seaviews from both levels, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance, 2 minutes to the beach and a solar heated salt water pool. A large downstairs terrace provides shade for long lazy lunches and the upstairs terrace allows outside eating at night looking down towards the beach and over towards the black rock. The pool is accessed either through the kitchen or through a door from the downstairs terrace. A small courtyard garden with a few fruit trees leads off the pool terrace and offers a quiet space for relaxing away from the pool area.

Restaurants are within easy walking distance as are two good supermarkets.

Luz also has an excellent doctors surgery and a dentist.

hello Anne

I just wanted to let you know on behalf of the whole family what a great holiday we had and to thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the weather and location were beautiful and everything was so convenient. The kids spent the morning on the beach and the afternoon in the pool,while grandma delighted reading on the balcony from the well stocked bookshelves. A real home from home and one which we all hope we will be able to return to , thank you once again.

Wonderful family villa in a brilliant location 😃

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in the villa in Luz. My family loved the villa - extremely spacious and plenty of facilities to make it feel just like home (my 2 year old grandson said it was his 'hodiday home' as he couldn't quite get the word holiday!). The villa has gorgeous sea and beach views and is a very close stroll down to the beach. The beach here is beautifully sandy and spacious - not many school children in September so plenty of space to spread out! There's a great selection of cafes nearby for anything from drinks or ice creams to full meals so there's no need to move off the beach all day. The villa has plenty of cooking facilities and kitchen equipment for any meals and we had barbecues out on the terrace. We would definitely recommend the villa to anyone and will certainly go back again in the future. We missed it as soon as we were home in England again! 😥. All in all we couldn't recommend it highly enough 😃😃

Fabulous location, wonderful accomodation

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in a wonderful location, just as described on the website. It is within minutes of a beautiful beach, a huge variety of restaurants and many well equipped supermarkets. The villa was spotlessly clean and had everything a family could need for a relaxed and comfortable stay. It was so helpful to have so much information from the owner before arriving and the property manager was extremely helpful with general queries during our stay. I couldn't recommend this accommodation more, it provided the best holiday for a large family and is perfect for kids of all ages. We would love to holiday here again!!

Owner's Response: We are always delighted to hear from clients who love the house and the area as much as we do. We have equipped the house for our own and our extended family's use and hope that it feels well equipped and homely to everyone else who stays there. We also have a great management team and know that we can rely on them to make guests feel welcome and deal with any problems they might have . We would love you to stay in the house again in the future and thank you for looking after it so well during your stay. Anne

This villa was the perfect location for our 4 teenagers and 7 year old. With a well equipped kitchen, two lounges, two beautiful terraces (the views from upstairs are stunning) and of course the very private pool area there was plenty of space for everyone to have some private time, as well as being accommodating enough for us all to get together for family meals and raucous card games on the terrace.

With the beach only being 2 minutes walk away, two supermarkets within 150 yards and lots of restaurants along the beachfront we really didn't need to leave Luz more than our single day trip to Lagos, and the older kids were able to come and go as they liked.

Communication from Anne prior to our trip was fantastic, the villa, pool and garden were spotlessly clean and well maintained.

I would definitely recommend this villa and would happily stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lee for your great review. I am so glad that our villa suited your needs so well and that you loved it as much as we do. It is in such a great location with everything close at hand that it makes a really relaxing stay. We have a great manager who keeps on top of things when we aren't there and helps to ensure that everyone's holiday is a success. Maybe we will hear from you again in the future. Anne

Praia da Luz villa

  • 5 of 5

This property was ideal for our family. It is centred right in the middle of Praia da Luz within easy walking to the best supermarket/restaurants and beach. Unless you want to go further afield it would not be necessary to have a car. With 1 double bedroom downstairs it is suitable for the disabled. Although right in the middle of Luz it was very quiet and the children enjoyed the pool.

We would recommend this villa to friends - especially those with children.

Car: not necessary


Praia da Luz has a lovely blue flag beach which is a short stroll from the villa along small lanes and alleys. Within a short drive there are many lovely beaches and the west coast has beautiful unspoilt beaches with few people on them. The historical town of Lagos is only 10 minutes away by car or bus.


Faro airport is approx an hour away. Car hire is not needed as everything is within easy walking distance and there is a good bus service into nearby Lagos. If required I can arrange airport transfers for you.


The villa is a short stroll from the beach (approx 2 minutes). Historic Lagos is 10 minutes drive or a short bus journey. It is possible to walk along the cliffs to Burgau and also to Lagos in the other direction.

Further Details:

There are several good supermarkets in Praia da Luz and two are close to the villa. Within 5 minutes there are several restaurants and a bank, chemist, doctors, dentist and an internet cafe.

The villa has internet access on a pay as you go basis
