About amanda gilbert

I live in England with my husband and have two grown up children and a labrador. We fell in love with this property and bought it in 2014. We love the sea views, beaches and the fact it is so close to some great golf courses.

Why amanda gilbert chose Luz

The location of Villa Lusitana sold it to us straight away, as it has the enviable position of being both in the countryside and near to Praia da Luz. From the villa it is a 20 minutes stroll into Luz along a picturesque trail along the coast or less than a five minute drive. On the other side of the villa is the beautiful fishing village of Burgau with its steep cobbled streets and fabulous restaurants.

What makes this villa unique

Massive spacious rooms both inside and out.

Lifelong friends visited Praia da Luz in September. We took full advantage of this stupendous property. It is spacious and beautifully appointed.

The hot tub was a pleasant surprise and enjoyed by all of us.

The stay exceeded our expectations

Thank you so much for taking such good care of us!

We would love to come back!

Incredible Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been to many different resorts, B&B,s, cottages, villas, etc and this Villa is the best one yet ! We enjoyed every minute of our stay! Very clean, beautiful and spacious place with 5 large bedrooms with each their own ensuite. We were 8 adults and 2 children and there was more than enough space. 5 couples and their children could easily stay in this villa. The view of the ocean, the pool, the BBQ, outdoor eating areas and to top it all ....the unbelievable top of the roof hot tub were absolutely the best !!! Everything was in good working condition. The villa is just a short drive to many beaches and to Lagos. I would certainly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a villa near Lagos.

We had a very good communication with Amanda and Luisa. Any time I would email for questions or information prior to our visit, they would reply within a day. All questions and any concerns were dealt with as soon as addressed. I can’t emphasize enough how welcomed we felt and satisfied we were with this villa.

Thanks Amanda and Luisa!

My wife said it was brilliant....she is right

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday in this special villa.

From the first moment we arrived and started the ritual of deciding who had which bedroom, we were spoiled for choice. 5 great rooms with really good en suites that nobody felt they got the short straw.

The really comfortable lounge with its massive corner group meant that we could all sit and work out where we were going to eat, either at the fabulous table on the covered terrace or more casually around the table overlooking the pool.

The memory of this villa will always be space. There was always enough for us as a group, but also plenty of comfortable places to be alone. I am the only one who sits in the shade and I had no problem finding the best places for me without being isolated.

Our 2 year old granddaughter started swimming in this pool, and the 5 year old , only just properly swimming grew in confidence every day because of the large area where she was in her depth. The adults never felt the pool to be too shallow. Some of my party loved the hot tub.

We had great help, when we asked from Luisa and Denise on site and the owner Amanda before we went. I should give special praise to the maid who regenerated the house twice a week back to pristine without ever being obtrusive. Thank you all

The location was really good, we were only minutes in the car away from some great restaurants which offered a good choice of menus. We loved Fabrica and Acore, we also used Galia the takeaway barbecue shop in Luz for lunches on the terrace. The supermarkets in Luz were fine, and intermarche in Lagos was exceptional.

Thank you for a fabulous holiday. David

Outstanding Holiday - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

The positioning of this Villa makes for a wonderful holiday - we were taken away by the incredible views upon arrival. The accommodation is beyond 5 star and extremely well equipped for the whole family, we had an age range of 18 months to 80 years old and it catered for all.

The surrounding area is fantastic, a short car ride away is Lagos – this town has everything you need when on holiday (fantastic large supermarket, lovely local market and entertainment for the young and old). There are several superb restaurants within both walking distance and a short drive away from the Villa. The list of recommendations left by the owner are a great shout – try them all! Having said that, we stayed in the occasional evening as the BBQ area and kitchen facilities are excellent.

I would recommend a walk along the coastal route to the small village of Burgau - beautiful views of the Atlantic ocean. Overall, a fabulous holiday and we will be returning as a family.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

I worry about writing this, in fear of not being able to get a reservation in the future...

If you think the reviews seem too good to be true, as we were originally worried they might be, then have no fear – this place is better than you could ever imagine. The setting is idyllic, with nothing but views of crystal blue seas and tropical trees, and every detail of the villa itself is magical.

The location is perfect, with nearby restaurants and a fabulous beach only a short stroll away (if you can pull yourself away from the property).

The beds are enormous and incredibly comfortable, and every part of the villa is equipped with luxury fittings.

We enjoyed the most peaceful and happy week at the villa with every member of the family incredibly sad to leave. We will be back!

Car: recommended


The beautiful sandy beach of Praia da Luz beach is a 20 minutes walk/5 minutes drive away. In Burgau there is a fabulous beach bar - this can be reached by a 5 minutes car journey or a spectacular walk along the cliffs. The villa is close to a beautiful unspoilt coastal path where is is possible to swim off the rocks in secluded areas. The area is famous for its surfing beaches many of which are very secluded.


Faro airport - 55 minutes drive.

All the major car hire companies are on site at the airport - there are cheaper local companies too.

There taxis at the airport and reliable local firms from the villa so car hire is not essential to get to and from the villa.


5 minutes drive to Praia da Luz and its bustling restaurants, 10 minutes drive to the market town of Lagos, 5 / 15 minutes drive to the fishing villages of Burgau and Salema. Sagres (the most south-westerly point in Europe) is a 20 minute drive to the West.

Portimao is about 30 mins drive to the East, as is the historic fortified town of Sives.

The mountains of Monchique are about 40 minutes drive to the East, giving stunning views along the Algarve.

Further Details:

Praia da Luz retains the charm of a traditional Portuguese fishing village yet offers excellent facilities to compliment the safe sandy beaches. These include numerous good restaurants, beach bars, cocktail bars, and shops and 2 supermarkets.
