Just reviewed on tripadvisor .....
I trawled the internet for 6 months trying to find that perfect Villa, you know the one I mean Beautiful, plush furniture, amazing sea views, Infinity pool etc & I stumbled on this one, Firstly let me say that the pictures do NOT do this Villa Justice, I arrived with my wife’s family & we were all speechless, the villa is much bigger than the pictures show, the furniture & decor is fantastic, its not ultra modern but very classy & high spec, you instantly feel at home. All the bedrooms have en-suite which are all beautifully done out, the bedrooms are all a good size, we were a family party and we all had our own space, we never got under each others feet.
The Kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly need & then some, everything is really good quality, and the whole villa was immaculate & spotlessly clean, the lounge is huge & plenty of comfy seating to relax in on an evening, we actually enjoyed the villa so much that we never turned the TV on once.
The whole villa is very well equipped to cater for any occasion, the BBQ is great, now the grounds are stunning, the pool was fantastic & warm with the pool heating on, the Jacuzzi was just brilliant especially relaxing in the sun with a cold drink.
I have thought long & hard if there were any negative points & my only gripe was I was only staying for 1 week.
A few notes
Luz town is only about ten to fifteen minute walk or 3 minutes by car, there is a large Spar shop & another called Baptista which both sell most things you will need.
A quick ten minute drive will get you to Lagos, which is a larger resort with numerous supermarkets & restaurants, I forgot to mention there are many restaurants within walking distance from the villa.
If your thinking of hiring a car I would definitely recommend getting one, the villa is around 60 miles away & takes just over an hour, I hired a minibus which cost me nearly £500,00 including the top insurance, it may seem expensive but taxi fares are roughly £90.00 each way for up to 4 people so my party would have had to spent between £350-400 just to get to & from the villa. the roads are quiet & all in good condition, better than the uk. Using the motorways there are tolls the hire company will offer you a £20.00 credit, we were out most days & we only went over by about £8.00
To sum this villa I would just try it, you wont be disappointed, exceptional Villa outshines any other villa, excellent location we loved it so much were back there next year, already booked in so hurry.

Fabulously Located Luxury Villa
This villa was excellently located just outside the local town (full of fabulous restaurants) it was clean, tidy and very well equipped. Not the most modern but never the less stylishly decorated and comfortable. We would love to go back again for longer if we could get 2 weeks in the summer holidays. It's so good that it was booked for next year before we arrived home this year!
This is a beautiful villa with stunning views . The location is great and within easy reach of Luz with its many fine restaurants, bars and some shops. The villa itself is very large and beautifully furnished although the beds apart from the main bedroom are not very comfortable. There are ensuite to all bedrooms but its unfortunate the shower in one of the double bedroom has no wall mounting so one has to hold it in your hand while taking a shower or use one of the other showers thus intruding on the people using the particular room.
A word of warning to any intending guests....there was damage caused to 2 sunbeds and two mattresses had stains on them for which we were blamed simply because we were the last people using the villa before the owners arrived in early October. We were completely innocent of the claims which resulted in the owner having to do a lot of checking with the maids before we were finally refunded our 500 sterling deposit a full 6 weeks after our return. Our advice to any one renting this villa is to check every bed for stains before you use them even though they will be made when you arrive and check for any damage to sunbeds or anything else for that matter and contact the owner directly so you don't have the same upsetting experience we did.
From the Owner
“This is home from home with the sun - as this coast has more hours of sunshine than any other within a short flight from the UK. People are friendly and helpful, and when life gets too frantic this is such a great place to recharge the batteries.”

From the Owner
“We can just walk to nearby restaurants for a great meal or a short taxi ride takes us into Lagos - so no worries on one in the party not drinking. We paid a premium to be right on the sea - so there is nothing between us and the most amazing sea views and wonderful pure air, unpolluted as no cars pass by except to go to our villa or a neighbours and there is just no industry here to affect the environment.”
