About Manus Bray

Manus and Grainne Bray are the proud owners of this beautiful villa.

Based in southern Ireland and working in the legal profession, they love to get away from it all and relax in Praia da Luz.

Manus Bray purchased this villa in 2004

Why Manus Bray chose Lagos region

As soon as we opened the front door and saw the stunning sea views, we fell in love with this wonderful property and location. It is totally different from the eastern side of the Algarve & that's what we loved about it.

What makes this villa unique

Relaxed tranquil setting but close enough to enjoy all the benefits of Luz, Lagos, Burgau & surrounding areas. Private heated pool. Private Front & back gardens. Unobstructed sky & sea views. BBQ on the front terrace area with table & seating. Air Conditioning in all rooms. Free WiFi. Comfortable, modern villa with all the home comforts. Flat screen TV with a vast range of European and International channels. Good local restaurants. Close to golf courses, sports facilities, sailing & general activities. A great place to relax, unwind & to get away from it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say we have the most fabulous time at your villa. Everything was as we remembered from our first stay with the villa being excellently maintained and spotlessly clean. It is THE most relaxing place to spend a couple of weeks affording us both the peace and quiet of the villa (noise of our excited children aside) and plenty of places to go nearby.

As I look out at the rain today I so miss the view from the balcony.

Better start saving for next time.

Thanks again

Mags and happy family

Perfect accommodation in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to the Algarve and it did not disappoint. The villa was very well equipped and comfortable and our girls loved spending time in the swimming pool. A 15-20 minute walk into Luz centre provided us with some much need exercise ;-) Luz is a lovely town, well situated as a base to explore some of the region ( we hired a car) will def return. Many thanks Manus !

silver wedding

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic villa this is it was lovely just like the pictures of it. Very clean and the views from the terrace were outstanding at night just sitting there with a drink in your hand was great . Manus was allways very helpful and answered any of our questions. This was our silver wedding anniversary and we booked this as a break as we had just moved and wanted to go away on a short haul trip and we were both over the moon with the whole break it was great.

Beautiful Villa, Fantastic Resort

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything we could have wished for. Clean, spacious, luxurious and perfect for our party of four adults. The layout - upstairs lounge, dining room, kitchen, toilet and balcony, downstairs two bathrooms, two bedrooms leading to a beautiful patio and pool. We didn't hire a car but chose to get a transfer from the airport and back. Shops, bars, restaurants and beach are all a 10/15 minute stroll down the hill but be prepared to take 20 minutes or so from the centre back to the villa as it is uphill!

However, once in the centre there is a wide array of bars and restaurants offering all kinds of food and drink, a beach that is just about perfect in every way, a couple of supermarkets - order online at the largest, Baptista, and they will deliver free of charge -and some decent shops to browse in.

We took a taxi into Lagos for our only day outside of Luz and I would hilly recommend this as a place to spend a great day out for a change of scenery.

Back to the villa........we ate in one evening and there are all mod cons to facilitate cooking a full meal. The balcony sea views are incredible and at night you can even hear the sound of the Atlantic crashing against the rocks adjacent to the beach. The pool is clean and well maintained - as are the gardens- and we found it to be a relatively peaceful residential area, ideal for a relaxing holiday.

My only word of warning is that if any of your party struggles to climb stairs or walk uphill, in order to stay at this villa would necessitate a car. Other than that, enjoy the trade off of drinking beer, eating food but keeping fit!

All in all, I would highly recommend this villa to a small family or two couples for a great holiday.

The village of Luz has cobbled streets leading down to the sandy beach with a pedestrian promenade. It has a relaxed, holiday atmosphere and offers basic shopping, cafe's, bars and a large variety of restaurants and a wide range of water sports. There is a local car hire company in the village. There are good spa's in Luz & Lagos & English speaking hair salons. There is a cliff walk between Luz & the village of Burgau, along the sea. There is a good bus service between Luz & Lagos. It takes approx 20-30mins by bus & 10 mins by car. There is also a taxi rank beside the bus stop, close to the church in Luz. The closest cinema is in Portimao, which is approx 20mins away by car. Dolphin watching trips & sunset cruises can be booked in the village, down by the beach. There is a private Masseur operating on the beach from a gazebo. There is an old ruin of Roman Baths along the promenade, open to the public. There are Indian, Chinese, Portuguese, Italian, South African & European restaurants available in Luz, catering to all tastes. There's an excellent ice cream shop, opposite the church en route to the beach, selling daily, homemade local ice cream & it's very popular. Some cafe's & bars organise live music in the evenings, where you can sit outside & enjoy a drink or a coffee after dinner, by the sea.

Facilities at, or near, Praia da Luz include scuba diving, water-skiing, windsurfing (Surf Experience), microlite, sailing, horse riding at Quinta do Paraiso Alto and, of course, golf. There are four courses within a 20 minute drive; the championship course at Penina, Palmares at Lagos, Parque de Floresta at Budens and the Boa Vista course between Lagos and Luz. The historic town of Lagos is well worth a visit.

Horse riding and lessons are available at a local estate. Luz Bay Club Hotel has indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and squash courts, Turkish baths and a gym; visitors can buy a day pass to use these facilities. There is a doctors surgery, 'LuzDoc' & a dentist's surgery 200 meters away from the villa in the village of Luz. Bank & Post Office are also located in the village.

There is a Cultural Center in Lagos which hosts art exhibitions, musical & theatrical events throughout the year.
