The name stands for resting and relaxation. The central location and proximity to beaches, cities and mountains makes the house an ideal base for discovering tours around the Algarve. The Casa Luar is picturesquely located on the idyllic hills of the Central Algarve, surrounded by nature and tranquility.

From the large living room windows you can enjoy the views of the Monchique mountains. In the morning, the sun shines in the bedroom and at night you can admire the clear starry sky. In the valley there are many different plants and animals species of the Mediterranean climate, including turtles and several species of herons.

Around the house ...

The house is situated in a quiet, sparsely populated valley. The little-used roads and paths in the area offering excellent hiking opportunities. There is a bakery in the 900m and 1800m distance in a typical café. Parking is available at the house. Around the house there is a large terrace and ramps provide continuous access to the raised seating area and into the house.

About Cassandra Lemper

How did casa Luar start? In 2010 we 3 sisters bought the house where our family has lived in for a few years. As it is very spacious and on one level, we decided to prepare the house also for wheelchair users. This is how in Spring 2013 we started renting our Casa Luar, Moonshine house, and we hope to have created a place for everybody to relax and retreat from the crowded coast line. This is the perfekt location to spend your Summer holidays, or as a escape to the long cold northern winters.

Cassandra Lemper purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Comfortable home from home

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend Casa Luar, we had a great stay...the house has everything you could need for a real home from home feel, very well equipped and well kept & clean. Great communication from the owner & we had one very small problem with the water & with one phone call the owner Cassandra was at the property within 30mins & problem solved... lovely views from the pool & plenty seating inside & outside. There is a large supermarket within 15min drive at Silves & we enjoyed the oranges we bought from the lady at the bottom of the road!! House is ideally placed, only an hours drive from Faro airport & plenty of places to visit within a short drive, lovely beaches etc.

Nos quedamos una semana de julio, y la verdad es que hemos estado mejor imposible, se trata de una casa que tiene todo lo necesario, esta muy bien decorada y localizada, es perfecta para viajar por el Algarve ya que en cuestión de una hora de coche llegas al Cabo de San VIcente y a la frontera, hemos estado en julio y al estr en la montaña es muy fresquita y agradable. La recomiendo al 100%, los anfitriones, aunque no los conocimos personalmente son muy atentos y agradables. Muchas gracias por todo Cassandra

Wie auf dem Zauberberg. Traumhafter Ausblick auf das Tal des Rib. de Odelouca.

Trotz unwirtlicher Wtterbedingungen (kältester und nassester März "aller Zeiten") haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt in diesem wunderschönen Haus. Leider konnten wir (s.o) die Terrasse nicht nutzen und müssen deswhalb wohl wiederkommen.

Zalige rust

  • 5 of 5

De woning voldoet aan alle eisen voor een rustgevende en ontspannende vakantie. Het is zalig vertoeven op het terras en we hebben volop genoten van de rust en de stilte. Enig minpuntje is de grind die je als rolstoelgebruiker moet overbruggen om op de helling naar het huis te geraken. Verder werd er heel veel moeite gestoken in de aanpassing van de woning voor rolstoelgebruikers.

Abwechslungsreicher Urlaub in ländlicher Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Der Familien-Algarveurlaub war mit 10 Tagen vorhersehbar knapp bemessen, die Ortswahl fiel bewusst nicht auf unmittelbare Strandnähe. Mit Casa Luar ging die Planung dann auch voll auf: Im Hinterland gelegen ist man in 30 Minuten (Auto unbedingt erforderlich) am Meer, die Auswahl an Stränden ist groß. Auch wenn im Hochsommer bei durchweg um 30°C der Drang zu Wandern oder Radfahren eher gering ausfiel gab es reichlich lohnenswerte Ziele in der Umgebung.

Das Haus bot mit seiner lichten, grosszügigen Bauweise zu jeder Tageszeit und bei jedem Wetter innen und aussen je nach Bedarf reichlich Rückzugs- oder Begegnungsraum. Besonders die vielen Sitzgruppen und Liegen bieten für jeden etwas. Auch der Pool hat bei der Hitze gute Dienste geleistet.

Bei kleineren und grösseren Problemen und Fragen (Wassermangel bei leerer Zisterne aufgrund der Trockenheit, Gas-/Warmwasserbetrieb, Ausstattung) war Familie Lemper immer umgehend zur Stelle und konnte alle Probleme zufriedenstellend beheben.

Für uns ein rundum gelungener Urlaub, für den wir uns herzlich bedanken.
