Villa Luz in Montinhos da Luz, Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - 15 Minutes To Bars & Restaurants, 15 Minutes To The Beach, No Car Required
Villa Da Luz is located Monte Da Luz in the residential area of Luz, yet is no more than about 10 minutes walk to the beach and the town centre. The private rear garden has a delightful pool and ideal for children with a swing and climbing frame. The interior is finished to a high standard offering space and comfort for 8 or 9 with the bedrooms on the ground floor and the open plan living space on the upper floor. The villa has Air conditioning in the living room and fans for the bedrooms, but having the bedrooms on the ground floor keeps them cool. With all the diversity that Praia da Luz has to offer reachable on foot, this villa makes a great base for those who do not wish to rely on a hire car throughout their holiday.

About the Owner
We are a family based in Carvoeiro, Algarve, Portugal, since 1997. We pride ourselves on a very high standard of accommodation here in Portugal. We can arrange for car hire, pick up at the airport and any number of excursion that are available in and around Portugal. If you have a particular interest, golfing, fishing, tennis, walking or just relaxing in some of the most wonderful gardens, then let us arrange your holiday. Portugal’s most famous playground is the Algarve, famed for its sandy beaches washed by the rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean, ports where history was made that now see their narrow cobbled streets buzzing with restaurants and bars and stretches of wild, untouched coastline. In this sun soaked playground we offer a range of our own properties to suit all tastes.

Absolutely flawless A*****
Casa Branca is exactly like it is depicted in the photos/description - if not better. This was our 4th visit to Luz an this is by far the best layed out villa we have stayed at. Children friendly pool, not too deep at one end, spacious living areas and bedrooms with excellent air conditioning in every room. Can not recommend highly enough. We intend to return next year.

There are plenty of amenities to hand, with shops, bars and restaurants throughout Luz and there are many places to pit stop along the beach front along the delightful palm-lined promenade.

The local gastronomy of Praia da Luz is based on the delicious fresh fish that are readily available and which is served in numerous ways!
Cataplana is normally a mix of fish and sea food such as clams (amêijoas) and prawns (camarões) with tomatoes, chouriço, peppers and herbs cooked with wine in a sealed clam shaped copper vessel to retain all the flavours and is really delicious; Arroz de marisco - a very tasty seafood risotto or a fish grilled to perfection and served with a salad - these are just some of the ways.
Chicken (frango) is always popular and chicken piri-piri (barbecued with a pepper sauce) is often on the menu along with pork (porco) and lamb (borrego) dishes.
Desserts traditionally use almonds and figs in cakes and pastries or just fresh fruits if you don't have a 'sweet tooth'!
Praia da luz has a wide selection of restaurants, cafés and bars and also a nightclub. It caters well for all tastes and budgets with English pubs, Irish bars, Chinese and Italian restaurants, restaurants serving international cuisine as well as traditional Portuguese.
There are cafés and restaurants along the beach front, a restaurant on the beach and many more in and around the centre. Praia da Luz has long been a favourite with British visitors and settlers who prefer the quieter end of the western Algarve and caters really well for families.
