About Jan Mitman

We have built and run international businesses.

Jan Mitman purchased this villa in 2004

Why Jan Mitman chose Lagos region

It just ticked all our boxes. It is a large property where multi-generational families can spend quality time together but get away for a quiet read or some private time alone. It is near all the amenities of Luz but away from the noisy sea front and groups of people.

What makes this villa unique

Large gardens with grass, private pool, terrific views but not overlooked.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time and Villa Julia was amazing, it was beyond our expectations.

Fabulous villa, excellent communication from owner & wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Julia for three weeks. Jan couldn't have been more helpful or attentive with instructions before we left & during our stay. The villa is an excellent location, with stunning beaches close by. Luz is a lovely village, Lagos is great for evenings out and only a short drive away. The villa was spacious & spotless when we arrived & the cleaner came three times a week & was v helpful. We'd highly recommend this villa!

Fantastic property in a fantastic location. Had everything we needed and more

  • 5 of 5

Jan, the owner of the property was very helpful as soon as we made our enquiry to book.

The whole booking process and regular updates regarding the property was very impressive.

The property itself was everything we had hoped for and more. The photographs and the description on the site do look really impressive but to actually be there and live there was literally amazing. The property is in a fantastic location just a relatively short walk to the beautiful town of Praia da Luz and a very short drive to the even smaller but great little neighbourhood of Burgau.

Villa Julia had more than ample space for our family of 4. Kitchen and living areas all bright and big. Bedrooms also a very good size with balconies and amazing coastal views.

Pool was fantastic with sun all day if required and plenty of shaded areas with the eye catching sails providing this.

We had a wonderful lady who came 3 times a week to clean and change bedding etc.and we also had gardeners attending to keep the surrounding grounds - and there is a lot of surrounding ground - neat and tidy.

Overall a fantastic stay in a beautiful property in a beautiful location.

We will defineteley be back!

Relaxing & beautiful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Villa Julia on a number of occasions - never disappointed. All the facilities for a family holiday, close to Praia de Luz & local beaches. But quiet & comfortable as a base for a short break, or for touring around the Algarve.

Highly recommended.

Relaxing long weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Julia, we only wish we could have stayed longer the villa is superbly equipped and extremely comfortable with everything you could possibly need on hand . The outside space is great with lots of different areas to sit and relax and shade from the sun. I would definately recommend Villa Julia and Jan was so helpful throughout , we can't wait to return !!!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to the writer of this review. When we furnished Villa Julia we asked ourselves what we would want from a holiday villa. We would have wanted a 'home from home' where everything we had at home was also in the villa. The kitchen would have the measuring spoons as well as the microwave, the juicer as well as the oven, the expresso machine as well as the fridge freezer, in other words, it would have all the little things as well as the basics. We wanted the outside furniture to be as luxurious and plentiful as the inside furniture. We wanted space to sometimes get away by ourselves and read a book as well as good communal areas where families and friends could join together for memorable meals and drinks. We wanted people to walk in the door and say 'wow, this is lovely' but not be intimidated by it and afraid to relax there. If we have achieved that for our guests we are thrilled. I think we must have gone a long way towards that as many of our guests return year after year and tell me they feel as though they are coming home.
