Overview

Luz Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - Quiet Location, Walking Distance to Village Facilities and the Beach

This attractive villa is situated in a small exclusive development in a quiet cul de sac offering peaceful surroundings, yet only 10 mins walk from the blue flag beach in Praia da Luz. The upstairs bedrooms offer wonderful sea views, and downstairs is the spacious living room and dining area. From the living area double doors lead onto a large terrace, very pretty garden and private pool with outside dining table and sun loungers. The owner spends much time in the villa and has furnished it to a very high standard for that reason. The bars and restaurants are approximately 5 minutes walk and the historic town of Lagos is an 8 minute drive, where you find many more bars and restaurants, great shopping and Lagos Marina. The Vila offers free WiFi internet to its guests.

About Gregor Stewart-Smythe

Hello! We have been using Praia da Luz as our home base for the past ten years.

We like the tranquility of Luz and always look forward to returning back to the area when ever we have our leave.

We have several properties in the area that we rent out and have kitted them out to a high standard. We often have return clients who say that its a home away from home which is exactly what we aim to achieve.

We hope to one day welcome you all to Praia da Luz

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week in this villa. Our daughters loved the location. They don't like anything too remote! It was peaceful yet close to restaurants etc. About a 15 min walk to Luz beach but also within driving distance to other beaches. It's a very comfortably furnished villa and well maintained. Gregor met us on arrival and showed us around. It was a lovely welcome. Would recommend to family and friends.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this villa with friends & would definitely recommend it.

The villa is lovely, well equipped & beautifully furnished. The balcony shared by the front two bedrooms had a stunning view of the sea, the pictures really do not do it justice.

The villa is in a good location, just a short walk into the centre of Luz where there is a good selection of bars & restaurants.

The directions to the villa were comprehensive & very easy to follow. Gregor (owner) & Partricia (on site contact) were both expectationally prompt & helpful at any answering queries.

We would definitely like to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hello Rachel & Huw, We thank you for your kind and positive comments about your stay with us at the Vila in Praia da Luz. Hopefully, we look forward to welcoming you all back in the future. Best Regards Gregor and Patricia the Vila Manager.

Map

Coast/Beach:

Praia da Luz is arguably one of the prettiest beaches in the Western Algarve, sporting the European blue flag. East are picturesque rocky coves and the long sandy crescent of Meia Praia at Lagos, within 10 minutes drive. 15 minutes West are the resort beaches of Burgau and Salema, and further again are a multitude of beaches frequented by surfers. Spectacular and less busy but not so safe for small children.

Travel:

Faro is the nearest airport at only a 1 hour drive away.

Further Details:

The villa is well placed and within walking distance to all village amenities which include post office, bank, cash dispensing machines, several supermarkets, pharmacy, English-speaking doctors surgery and dentist.

Zoomarine dolphin park and Slide and Splash water park provide coach transport from Luz. Anglican church services are held on Sunday in the local church. Near to the villa is the Oceanico resort which has spa, gym, and indoor pool facilities. There are two water-sport centres on the beach providing everything from banana boat rides, to sailing lessons, to fishing excursions.

From Lagos you can try parasailing, deep-sea fishing, dolphin safari, or visit the grottos by fishing boat. There are several surf centres offering day trips to wherever the waves are best on the day, wetsuits, equipment and instruction as required. Luz can offer truly international cuisine in a wide choice of cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and occasions. Many are family friendly and also offer a takeaway service.

For a change of scene we recommend an evening out in the historic town of Lagos. The 8 minute taxi ride is inexpensive - let us book for you and just sit back and enjoy the local wines.
