About Elizabeth Walsh

Bought as a family holiday home many years ago and we still love it now as much as when we first bought it.

Our children are now grown up with children of their own and the villa is enjoyed by all 3 generations.

Why Elizabeth Walsh chose Luz

Set in Montinhos da Luz it is out of the hustle and bustle but elevated and has the most fantastic views.

What makes this villa unique

A perfect villa for a relaxing holiday.

  • 4 of 5

We have been staying at Casa Katarina since 2010. Our last visit was last October but we spend 3 weeks in June -July and then a week in October anually. The villa suits us perfectly with the stunning panoramic views from the balcony and the private pool with its own jacuzzi and the additional sunbathing patio within its own gardens. The location is within walking distance to the shops, bars and of course the fabulous beach. Within the villa there are 3 bedrooms which have french doors opening on the pool area and the master suite has a dressing room and large bathroom en-suite. We look forward to our holidays in the sun in our favourite location and will continue to enjoy the facilities offered by Casa Katarina in future years.

Ruhig gelegenes Ferienhaus mit traumhaftem Blick

  • 4 of 5

Casa Katarina ist hervorragend für einen nicht zu trubeligen Strandurlaub an der Algarve geeignet. Die Ausstattung der Zimmer ist gut und die Betten bequem. Alles ist sehr sauber und gepflegt, wenn auch nicht mehr neu. Kleine Abstriche muss man bei der Küche machen, es gibt leider keine Spülmaschine und wir hätten uns etwas mehr Geschirr gewünscht. Herausragend ist der tolle Blick von der Terrasse mit Abendsonne. Der Pool wird vom Polopfleger gut in Schuss gehalten. Wir bekamen eine sehr nette Betreuung durch die Agentur mit Restaurant- und Strandempfehlungen. Das Zentrum von Luz und den Strand erreicht man in 15 Minuten zu Fuss, viele schöne Strände liegen 10 bis 20 Minuten Autofahrt entfernt. Wir würden das Haus weiterempfehlen!

10 mins to the nearest beach on foot. Praia da Luz is approx a 15 mins walk. Many beautiful beaches are accessible by car including Ingrina, Zavial or Carrapateira and Amado for the surfers in you!


Faro airport is approx 60 mins away by motorway and Lisbon approx 180 mins also by motorway. The picturesque route is approx 90 mins longer. Car hire is recommended but good transfers are available from Faro and everything in Luz is accessible on foot. There is also a train service between Faro and Lagos and excellent local bus services to Lagos.


Many places of interest within 10 to 45 mins drive, including the fascinating Monchique mountains. Excellent shopping in Lagos, 10 mins and Portimao, 20 mins. In Portimao are three commercial centres for shopaholics.

Further Details:

Praia da Luz has all necessary amenities, including medical and dental services. Larger supermarkets and other shops are available in Lagos (10 mins by car). Water sports available in Luz, Lagos or along the coast. Horse riding, walking, bird spotting, you name it you can do it.
