Guestbook comments from the owner

We would definitely recommend this villa and have just returned from a great holiday - 6 adults, two toddlers and one baby. It was just perfect for us as it is so spacious and well equipped. Lucy was very responsive before we left the UK, and Heath, who manages it, was on hand and was really helpful, particularly when we needed a doctor.



We spent a lot of time at the villa which was in a semi-rural location with a lovely view, but a short drive from beaches, shops, and into the centre of the historic town of Tavira which was very attractive. Food and drink was not expensive even on the beach and there were so many gorgeous beaches to choose from, some of which you access by boat or train (which was all part of the fun for us), but there are also some that you can walk onto. Every beach had somewhere to buy drinks and food and most had showers.



We ate in the villa mostly as we had a young family and there is a big bbq on the patio. Tavira is less touristy than the central part of the Algarve and has no unattractive high rise buildings. Spain is a half hour drive and we spent a day in Seville which took about 1.5 hours. We loved it.

Perfect, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this really nice villa. All communications with Lucy were pleasant, she even called me in Canada as soon as I made the booking request. It was nice that she took this time to contact me.
The villa is very nice, clean and large. There were only 4 of us (me and my husband and our two teenagers) but it would accommodate 8 people perfectly. Everything is made to accommodate a larger group: bed chairs around the pool, outside dining table, inside ding table...
The villa is close to many beaches on the "islands" of the Ria Formosa. It is only a few minutes by car. There is a big shopping center near by (less than 5 minutes by car) in a large shopping mall. Very convenient.
Although we did not get to meet Lucy the owner, she has someone greeting us. They were lovely and helpful. Both Lucy and her friend even had a special thought for our daughter who turned 13 during our stay. This was such a nice gesture.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay and we recommend it.

We had a most enjoyable week at Casa Luzia. The weather was fantastic – hard to believe it was October. Heath, the manager, was very helpful when he met us on our arrival and he had a lovely welcome pack waiting for us.

As we were three couples, the villa suited us extremely well, each with our own en-suite bathroom – so no queuing to take a shower. The villa was fabulous, with an open plan living area which was really spacious and very comfortable. The pool area was very private and we spent many hours relaxing there.

We took turns to walk to the local Mini Preco shop every morning to get fresh bread and croissants (4 croissants for €1 – who could resist them!). Sitting on the terrace for breakfast in glorious sunshine planning our day; whether to relax by the pool, go into town or head off to the beach. Bliss! We walked to the Gran Plaza shopping centre where there is a large supermarket and loads of shops, cafes and restaurants; and also went walking in the Nature Reserve to look at the Flamingos that apparently arrive every October and stay until April – we took some great photos.

The villa has a traditional brick bar-b-q which we used several times during our stay. I can still taste those lovely grilled prawns that were so cheap to buy locally. We also sampled some of the restaurants in Tavira that were recommended in the very useful Guest Book at the villa. They were really excellent and very reasonable. Some evenings we walked into town and took a taxi home, costing about €6. Tavira is a really lovely town to walk around; it is nice to stop for a coffee or glass of wine or to sample some delicious pastries, and it was all really good value. It’s the first time in years that any of us came home with money.

There are several beaches nearby, and our favourite was Manta Rota which is about 10 minutes by car, a beautiful long sandy beach – but really you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches.

I would really recommend Casa Luzia to friends and family; and we are strongly thinking about a return visit in May.

First Class Luxurious Villa

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing week in Casa Luzia!

Myself and my family have always come to the Algarve on our holidays and never have we come across a more beautiful villa. The villa has a homely atmosphere, allowing you to settle in straight away and enjoy the get-away.
This gorgeous villa, located just outside the beautifully quaint town of Tavira, is like a home away from home! After a day of travelling, it was lovely to receive the welcome basket upon arrival. It added to our enjoyment of the first day; relaxing as soon as we arrived at the villa.
Having the private pool was a major plus, and the fruit garden is such a lovely idea; it was so nice to have fresh lemons and limes right outside your back door!
We found that the notice board, which provides a list of recommended restaurants, was extremely helpful! From these recommendations, we knew we wouldn't be taking a risk when choosing a restaurant.
The villa is so central in that you are within walking distance from the supermarkets, cinemas and other attractions including Tavira town, but not so central that you can't enjoy the peace and quiet of the Algarve. The best of both worlds!
There are multiple well kept beaches all just a short spin away. We enjoyed visiting the water park in Quarteira and the Super Mini Golf in Vilamoura, both just a half hour drive away. All great ways to unwind, and spend some quality time with your family!

We would definitely recommend Casa Luzia and look forward to returning in the near future!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments. I am really glad that you enjoyed your holiday, and that the information we provided was useful.

We are often asked about the location of the villa, so it was great to see you describe it as "the best of both worlds".

I would love to hear from you if you decide to return to Casa Luzia. Lucy

Fabulous Villa for Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5
This villa does exactly what it says on the tin!

It is confortable, well furnished, spacious, great location, airconditioning throughout, well equiped kitchen, lovely open plan kitchen, diner, living space and we can't wait to return. I would recommend this villa without hesitation.
We enjoyed a 10 day stay which was planned and supported by Ronan and Lucy the villa owners, who thoughfully helped to plan a celebration for our 40th wedding anniversary.

The local area is brilliant, many bars, shops and restaurants a short taxi ride or drive away. Several beaches in the area, Tavira Island particularly pleasant although it is accessed by a short ferry ride. It has to be said that the ferry isn't terribly easily accessed by people with limited mobility, but if you can mannage it, it's well worth it.

Perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5
Casa Luzia is a beautifully-maintained and well-equipped villa, in a great location just outside the bustle of Tavira. We enjoyed the peace and quiet with uninterrupted views over the Ria Formosa national park to the rear, teeming with bird life.
Choosing not to drive, we were able to cycle to the shopping plaza -or a nearby beach - along a country path. A further few minutes by road took us to the centre of town, and a great choice of restaurants and bars.
Our group really just enjoyed being around the pristine swimming pool all day, with a great kitchen and home comforts to hand.
Manager Heath was very helpful, and the owner was delightful and informative to a fault, which added greatly to the whole enjoyable experience. Why don't you email and find out for yourself?
Totally recommended!!

Beaches

Casa Luzia is near some of the best Beaches on the Algarve which are rarely crowded even in the height of summer. Tavira's main beach is the Ilha de Tavira, where the 11km of sand provide an idyllic spot to sunbathe and relax. The wide, safe and clean beach has a choice of restaurants and beach bars. Other extensive sandy beaches at Manta Rota, Cabanas and Barril are also highly recommended.

Golf

Benamor and Quinta da Ria / Quinta de Cima courses are just a couple of minutes away. Other courses within a very short drive from the Villa include Castro Marim and Quinta do Vale, as well as the exclusive Monte Rei course designed by Jack Nichlaus. It takes 20 minutes to reach courses in Spain or 30 minutes drive to the Vilamoura / Quinta do Lago area.

Activities

The Ria Formosa Nature Reserve is a paradise for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers alike. If you prefer a little more strenuous exercise there is also a local Kite-Surfing school, Horse Riding or Tennis.

Cycling

It is now possible to hire bikes from one of our neighbours. If you wish, he will take you on a cycle tour of the area; through the Nature Reserve, along the coast or into the hills - depending on how adventurous you feel.

Other Activities: Bird-watching, nature walks, sailing. Our guests qualify for discounted rates with Formosamar, a company that runs organised eco-activities.

Golf: Benamor Golf and Quinta da Ria / Quinta de Cima courses are literally a couple of minutes away. Other courses within a very short drive from the Villa include Castro Marim and Quinta do Vale, as well as the exclusive Monte Rei course designed by Jack Nichlaus. It takes 20 minutes to reach courses in Spain or 30 minutes drive to courses in the Vilamoura / Quinta do Lago area.

You can plan your golf in advance of your visit to Casa Luzia; and it is now possible to save time and hassle by pre-booking and collecting hired clubs at Faro airport. Alternatively, equipment can be hired at each golf course.

There is a nearby golf shop for any accessories that you might need. They also provide club hire.
