The panoramic views that greet you as you enter the property through the front gate are breathtaking, and you know exactly how it got the name Sea View Villa!

A table and chairs on the veranda invite you to relax and enjoy the local foods and wines while taking in the panoramic sea views into the bargain. There is a large flat screen TV with English and German language and international channels, and a DVD and Blue Ray Player, as well as a music port system.
The adjacent dining area has a dining table with seating for 6, and the nearby kitchen is separated from the living room by a wide breakfast bar with stools.
The well-equipped kitchen has a gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher as well as a coffee machine, electric kettle, toaster and ample crockery etc. for your needs, and there is also a washing machine, iron & ironing board.

Bedroom 2 has a large double bed and built-in wardrobes and both bedrooms open onto the sunny terrace. Bedroom 3 has twin beds and built-in wardrobes.
The main bathroom, beside these two bedrooms has a bath, shower, bidet and toilet.
Sun loungers on the spacious pool terrace invite you to top up that tan, and there is a built-in BBQ nearby. The large pool has optional pool heating at an extra cost.
The split-level villa is on a large plot with a variety of terraced areas on different levels and with different aspects. There is a private garage which guests can use for car parking, and beneath the garage there is a bright indoor games room with a ping pong table which is accessed from a lower terrace.
The villa is surrounded by fragrant colourful plants and climbers which add depth and character to this charming villa which is ideal for a fantastic 'get away from it all' relaxing family holiday!
The villa is walking distance to the centre of the charming village of Luz which has lots of restaurants, some bars and supermarkets and a fabulous, sandy Blue Flag Beach. Near the beach there is a wonderful paved area and promenade with seats shaded by large palm trees where you can sit and enjoy the views of the beach, the sea and the lovely coastline. There are market stalls and cafes near the beach and sun loungers for hire, and there are two water sports centres at the beach offering a range of sports and trips.
Boa Vista is the nearest of many golf clubs, about 5 minutes by car, and there is a good riding stables about 10 minutes away, with various other sporting activities are catered for in the area.
From Luz you can walk to coastal path westwards to Burgau, Salema and beyond, or eastwards climbing up to the beacon on the headland and continuing on to Porto do Mos, Ponte da Piedade, Praia da Dona Ana and Lagos. This path is obviously not suitable for small children or buggies!
Lagos is the capital of the region and has an illustrious history, with sturdy defensive town walls and castles still in evidence inside of which the narrow cobbled streets are packed with shops, restaurants, bars as well as old churches and lots of dwellings along a myriad of small streets. It is also a very friendly, easy going town with a super waterfront and a large modern marina across the river and a handy pedestrian footbridge to cross the river. To the east of the marina there is a 4 km long stretch of sandy beach called Meia Praia, while back on the city-side of the river there are some gorgeous small coves nestling between huge cliffs. Lagos has a large daily fish market and a weekly farmer's market both of which have staggering choices on display, and well worth a visit.
The coastline to the west has wonderful beaches, coves and fishing villages while the western coast, which is only about 20 minutes drive, has miles and miles of stunning coastline with huge cliffs interspersed with beautiful little coves and beaches with Atlantic rollers that attract many surfers all year round.
