Villa in Porto Dona Maria, Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal, Peaceful Location Just 5 Minutes Away From The Beach And Restaurants
This impressive villa is the height of luxury with every room facing south and has breathtaking views of the Atlantic. With a large private heated pool and in a convenient and quiet location, the villa has been designed with family and friends of all ages in mind. Relax and enjoy the panoramic views from the hot tub on the roof terrace, soak up some Algarvian sunshine from one of the plentiful sunbeds around the large south-facing swimming pool surrounded by the contemporary garden or sit back in the sizeable shady outside dining areas. The more energetic can enjoy a game of table tennis or a stroll along the cliff top paths. The large middle terrace features an external BBQ and bar area with further outdoor dining seating. The internal rooms are very spacious and furnished to an extremely high spec. The villa is beautifully light and airy with all rooms well lit and air conditioned with individual control units.

Gorgeous group getaway
About the Owner
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.

Gorgeous group getaway
Perfect villa for a large group getaway. Spacious, immaculate, tastefully decorated and with well appointed rooms. Has a stunning private pool and the added bonus of a hot tub with views out to sea. Has a choice of seating and eating area in sun or under cover. Lovely walk along the cliff tops to the super beach bar/restaurant at Burgau or in the opposite direction to a choice of restaurants in Luz. Within easy car/cab ride of a good choice of golf clubs. We did Boavista, Parc de Floresta and Espiche. Lagos was within easy reach by car/cab and we had a good shopping day there. Great place to spend time chilling - great BBQ area, table tennis table, pool and hot tub. Planning to return again next year.
Stunning villa - will definitely be back!
What an incredible villa! We stayed here with a big group and it was perfect. The bedrooms and bathroom are very grand each with some peaceful outdoor space. There are lots of sitting and eating areas and a huge pool with lots of sun beds. The decor is beautiful and the villa is really well equipped with a well stocked kitchen and lots of towels and bedding etc. It's perfect for a big group of adults - we were golfing and the choice of great courses nearby is fantastic. It's also great for a couple of families to share. There are high chairs and cots for babies and older children will love the pool and rooftop hot tub. It's in a peaceful location, with an easy coastal walk to Prai de Luz with lots restaurants and beaches. We did a longer more adventurous walk to Burgau which is a beautiful village. There's a good taxi service for those who don't want to walk in the evenings. All in all we had an amazing trip to the perfect villa and we hope to book again soon.
Beautiful villa with fabulous views
A gorgeous, spacious villa with amazing views, enormous bedrooms, several outdoor sitting areas and every modern convenience.
A great position with plenty of restaurants, lovely walks along the coast and beautiful beaches nearby. Thoroughly recommended!
We arrived in Faro in torrential rain but after an hour's drive on the motorway found the villa easily with the instructions given.
Having seen the waves lashing against the rocks on Tuesday awoke the next day to beautiful blue skies and we were able to see the full extent of the views which are truly amazing and realised we could walk to the nearby beaches
The villa is lovely. Really well fitted out with everything you could ever need. The bedrooms are very spacious and have more than enough storage.
There are several eating areas which mean that you can take advantage of sun or shade as you require.
The pool is a great size.
We hope to be able to return!!
The villa is lovely - with plenty of room for all. It was clean and well maintained and customer service was excellent. The restaurant at the edge of the complex on main road may not look much but the food was lovely and staff very friendly and is easily walkable which is a bonus. Lovely coastline and despite the weather not being perfect we had a wonderful holiday here.
From the Owner
“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.”
Activity and Interests
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.
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.
