Bohemian feel!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for two to spread out and relax in a peaceful hillside setting surrounded by greenery. The photos are a true reflection of the villa. The owners have another villa close by so are close at hand if required. Michael and Johanna are very welcoming. A car is essential, although it is only a 10-minute drive to either Lagos or Praia da Luz (both worth a visit).

Private and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This villa provides exactly what it says on the tin! Set about two miles from Praia de Luz and Lagos in a lovely rolling hillside setting. The villa is perfect for a very peaceful and private holiday, and a car is recommended for beaching and shopping. Accommodation is comfortable and very spacious. Pool is splendid and of sensible size (and heated to suit). The main kitchen is covered and open at the front to allow the freedom of 'outdoor' cooking. The photographs show the villa to perfection. We had an excellent holiday and would look forward to a return.
