About the property

Villa in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - Quiet Location, 10 Mins Walk To The Beach, Excellent Golf Courses Nearby

The property has been recently refurbished to a high standard and is equipped for us to live in. The villa has stunning views of the sea and village from the balcony and living rooms. We have installed a lovely new well equipped kitchen and both bathrooms have been completely refurbished to a high standard. The private pool and charming gardens are very well maintained and we have recently added very comfortable outdoor furniture and new beds and mattresses. There is plenty of parking outside the villa. Just a few minutes walk away Luz beach, with its expanse of sand and safe bathing, provides a wonderful place to relax. Tennis courts are within easy walking distance and there are excellent local golf courses at Boa Vista and Espiche only 10 minutes away, with numerous other very good golf courses within 15-30 minutes. We also have fast free WiFi internet access, TV including all main channels including sky and BT and shops within easy walking distance. The spectacular sea views are an absolute feature of the villa. Accessed from the living room and dining room, the balcony is equipped with new 'rattan' furniture and fitted cushions.

About Cathy Lowe

We are Peter and Cathy and we live in Brighton. We have been visiting Luz for over 15 years now. We have two 20+ year old 'children' who also love using the villa with their friends. We are keen golfers, tennis players, cyclists and walkers and enjoy visiting restaurants. The area suits us perfectly

Cathy Lowe purchased this villa in 2014

Why Cathy Lowe chose Luz

Quite simply we bought the villa for the stunning views of the sea and village and the fantastic private garden and pool. The villa faces south and enjoys sunshine throughout the day. The spectacular sea views are an absolute feature of the villa. The villa is away from traffic and crowds but close enough to reach key places quickly. Luz is relaxed and friendly but has all the 'essentials' such as fantastic beach, supermarkets, excellent restaurants, bars etc and is near to Lagos which has numerous restaurants, shops and good night life. With Faro airport reached in under an hour by car, Luz is an ideal location for holidaymakers.

What makes this villa unique

As we spend a lot of time at the villa, we have equipped the villa to live in. We are always looking to see how we can improve it and welcome suggestions from our guests. The villa is so convenient for beaches, sporting and leisure activities, restaurants, bars, shops etc. The one thing we will never tire of is the view from the living rooms and balcony. Photos cannot do the view justice!

First class!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property with our 2 boys aged 11 & 8. The villa was everything we could have wished for: immaculately clean, well equipped and the views from the balcony at any given time of the day were a delight. Cathy could not have been more helpful. In short ... a wee gem!

Terrific relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific 2 week visit at this lovely villa. The TV system was the most comprehensive we've ever had in a European stay with live US channels which allowed us to watch the opening World Series games which our Cubs ended up winning! (We proudly flew our W flag from the balcony during our stay.) We got in lots of walking and enjoyed the local markets and restaurants. The balconies get sun all day and had very comfortable furniture. Everything was better than listed and Cathy provided all the necessary directions. We definitely hope to come back and will look to get this villa again.

Fantastic find

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Cathy for letting us stay in your villa. It surpassed all our expectations, it was the best villa we have ever stayed in. The view from the balcony was gorgeous especially on an evening with the odd glass of wine or two!

First time we have been to Luz, quite small with great restaurants we had some lovely meals.

We shall definitely book again with you, once again thanks.

Extended Summer Break

  • 5 of 5

My family have just returned from a 3 week stay in Luz at this fantastic Villa. From booking through to arrival the process was very smooth with all questions and queries answered promptly. The Villa itself is of a very high standard with everything you need for a stress free holiday. The location in Luz is ideal and the resort itself is rather picturesque and charming. Thanks very much Cathy and Peter for making our special holiday so very special

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa, in a wonderful setting on a hill above Luz. The views from the terrace are every bit as good as they look in the photos and the villa is tastefully furnished in a homely way. The villa is about 10 mins walk from the beach/town centre where there are plenty of good dining options. The villa was very clean and Peter and Cathy provided great information about the villa and locale both before arrival and in a booklet in the villa. We would recommend this villa to couples or small families seeking a relaxing break away in the sun!

A Quality Villa in an Enchanting Part of Portugal

  • 5 of 5

This villa was by far one of the best that we have stayed in over the years. Furnished to a high specification without it losing that homely feel. What a superb view from the living room area. All in all we had a fabulous 2 weeks and we look forward to returning to stay in this charming villa in Praia Da Luz in the not to distant future.

Nearest Airport
90 Kilometres


Luz beach is only 10 minutes walk from the villa and has every imaginable water sport available in the summer months from sailing boats to windsurfers and pedalos to log or ringo rides. The west coast, only 20 minutes away by car, is much wilder with its huge unspoilt beaches and large breakers. There are numerous other fantastic beaches within easy driving distance.


Faro airport is only about 50 minutes by car. The train from Faro to Lagos is very inexpensive and takes about 1½ hours. Airport transfers in taxis are available from about 70 euros each way. There are local buses, will take you to Lagos, or the neighbouring fishing villages of Burgau and Salema.


Luz is 10 minutes walk. Lagos is about 10 minutes by car.

Cape Vincente, the most Southwesterly point of Europe is about 30 minutes away by car.

Also recommended is a visit to Monchique the highest point in Southwest Europe.
