Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly our stay at Villa Serena. We were welcomed by a very friendly agent who showed us round the clean and tidy villa. The coffee, tea, milk and water provided to us were a really nice touch too. It is impeccable throughout and couldn't be better equipped. Every room was tastefully decorated and there was a lot of attention to detail. Black out curtains in each bedroom were a great help, especially for our 9 month old daughter who actually slept like a baby! The downstairs shower was perfect for washing off the sand from the beach without dragging it through the villa. The pool was only a stones throw away and was very well maintained. Lastly the roof terrace. It was perfect to sit out on the loungers after a busy day at the beach and it also has the benefit of a clothes line so the beach towels were dry for the following day's exertions. We love this villa and would recommend it to anyone.

Our stay at Vila Serena was perfect from start to finish.

The booking process was extremely easy and the owners were full of hints and tips to make our stay so much better-nothing was too much trouble.

Upon arrival we were met by their agent who again was very helpful and full of advice about our stay in the resort. The welcome pack was a nice extra as well.

The property itself is on a small development just a short stroll from the bustle of the beach and resort centre of Praia da Luz, and has absolutely everything you need to make for a comfortable stay. The pool area was fantastic and our 2 young children thoroughly enjoyed making friends and having fun around there.

The villa is much more spacious than the photos suggest, and the roof terrace and garden were lovely areas to relax with a drink after a hard days sunbathing!

The kitchen was well appointed, bedrooms nice and airy, and it really was a home from home. There are loads of great restaurants nearby for those who enjoy eating out - our favourites being Aquario and The Dolphin.

Possibly one of the most relaxing holidays we have had as a family in years, we would certainly recommend and will definitely be back!

Excellent in all aspects. A lovely villa that is spacious and clean with everything you need. Set about 50 yards from the communal pool which again is spacious and clean. The pool is set in lovely well kept grounds with a security gate for access. The roof top sun terrace is an added bonus to the property making it truly special.The villa is at the top of a hill with a short walk to the local shops and then onto the promenade. A quiet beach front area with several restaurants which offer great value for money. Would recommend this property without any hesitation and would definitely stay here again.

This is our second stay at this beautiful villa, each time the booking process has been flawless. We have been met by the agent on both occasions with a warm welcome and arrival pack to get us started. The Villa is well maintained and has very good facilities. The garden,grounds and pool areas are immaculate. I look forward to staying again next year.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend a stay at this villa- very spacious,clean and well equipped . The grounds are well kept with a lovely pool area. It is a quiet location,but not far to walk to Luz for restaurants and the beach. We hired a car and travelled to Lagos and Bagau which are only minutes away and Portamao which has a lovely beach.

All in all a lovely family holiday .

Great Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very pleasant and well equipped house with a lovely communal pool and immaculate gardens. The house was exceptionally clean and really felt like "home from home." The location was perfect ..... quiet, peaceful and within easy walking distance of the centre. The whole booking process from start to finish worked like clockwork. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Also, Praia da Luz is a lovely place with a great beach and plenty of places to eat. It is perfectly located for travelling around too......we hired a car and went to Burgau, Salema, Sagres, Lagos to name but a few. Happy holiday! ?
