About the property

Villa in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - Enjoy The Peace And Tranquil Location Of This Property, But Still Only 10 Minutes Walk To The Beach

A Luxury 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa, in the perfect location of Praia Da Luz, offering an immediate sense of calm and tranquility, with magnificent sea and headland views (from upper floor). The villa is walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shops and supermarkets. You will be able to enjoy your own private pool (heating optional) with large garden and outdoor furniture.

A unique feature of this property is that you will notice it is a home not just a rented accommodation, it feels just right. The outside Kitchen (BBQ, cooking & dinning area) with superb sea views, Both upper bedrooms have private terraces with sea views, garden with soft grass makes it so perfect you won't want to leave. On the rare occasion when the evening air is cooler you have the cosy lounge with a large log fire place. This is a place you will want to come back to again and again. As the owner i regularly relax here with friends and am delighted to share this little paradise with you and your family and friends.

Excellent Property & Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa in an excellent location, just far enough away from the main resort to be peaceful yet close enough for young and old to walk to.

The whole property inside and out is very clean, well appointed, spacious and well maintained. The pool is a good size and got a lot of use from all of us, the pool has a cover to keep the heat in at night so it’s a good temperature every day if you take the heated option.

We have stayed here twice and thoroughly loved it both times, and will definitely stay again, the Villa, beach and resort are all beautiful.

Highly recommended.

Lovely Villa for a relaxing holiday.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely villa in a picturesque location.

This a perfect villa if you want a nice relaxing holiday with great sea views. We were met by Mandy the pleasant owner who showed us around the property and gave us all the information we needed. She was on hand straight away when we had a couple of technical difficulties. There is great space for 6 people.

The pool area is great and there is plenty of space.The pool is cleaned once a week and there are loads of beach towels availble which was really useful.

The lovely town of Luz and the fab beach are just a short walk away and there are loads of good restaurants although I would recommend booking at busy periods.

All in all a good choice if you dont want to be in the centre of it all.

Great family villa!

  • 4 of 5

As a family of 6, we spent 6 nights at this villa and loved every minute. It was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need and had plenty of space for us all to live and move around.

The garden gets the sun all day long, the pool is a fabulous size and the BBQ, outside dining area is absolutely perfect.

The villa is about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Luz, which can be reached via a beautiful coastal path.

Mandy was easily contacted if/when we needed her and we would highly recommend her villa as an ideal holiday home.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful. We had a lovely time at this villa. It was clean and well maintained. It is in an ideal quiet location with stunning sea views. Mandy the owner provided excellent customer service. We would highly recommend this property to our friends and family. Also we would book again ourselves. This villa is only a short gentle walk to all the restaurants, bars and shops. There is no need to hire a car(if you don't want to)as there are two good supermarkets in Luz.

fantastic villa...highly recommeded!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Luz, a different villa from our first visit, but was by the far the best!

Spacious, well-furnished and an easy 10min stroll into town, a perfect location by anyone’s standard

This villa is designed for the perfect holiday….relaxing!

Large dining area with a fantastic barbeque area, internet for those who need to (was a particularly fab hit with my two teenage daughters), pool area which catches the sun all day, expansive kitchen area and bathrooms for the three bedrooms and Mandy the host contactable any time to help with any queries, this is the perfect holiday villa for the family

Luz itself is perfect for dining out, with plenty of restaurants and some very friendly locals, who go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible

Could not fault the premises or its location in any way shape or form, and when we decide to go back (not a matter of if) we will definitely be hoping to contact Mandy again to book another stay

Great villa, great location, great host

Could not recommend this villa highly enough
