  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. A spacious, well equipped and comfortable villa with a lovely pool area, BBQ and outdoor space. About a10 minute stroll to the centre of Luz and beach. We can thoroughly recommend this super house and definitely hope to return. Mandy was most helpful and “on hand” to resolve any issues.

From start to finish my family and I had the best holiday , the villa was so charming and had everything we could possibly need for a perfect stay ,What topped it off was the location , the view was stunning , the sea breeze was perfect in the evening to cool us down after a long sunbathe by the pool , breakfast lunch and dinner including some really great BBQ's in the garden overlooking the ocean and pool perfect !! The walk into town along the coastal path was such a pleasure and everything was so close a car wasn't needed so no hassle . The beach was beautiful ,the restaurants bars and supermarkets all very close so we didn't need to leave Luz at all , I would definitely highly recommend this property to anyone looking for the perfect getaway , Thanks for a great holiday Mandy xx Michele , George & Family

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.
