Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the villa. The views from the photos you sent do not compare with what we experienced in person! The porch itself was hard to leave.. and the scenery from the pool was magnificent. Luz is such a lovely town as is the neighborhood of your villa. The villa itself was very accommodating with all of the bedroom and bathroom facilities, along with the out door grill which we enjoyed immensely.

Our fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This villa was fantastic. We had small children and they loved the pool, we did have it heated as we went in May. It was a 20 minute walk down a hill into Luz and the beach but the views are beautiful (just struggled to get 2 3yr olds back up after a day at the beach). The villa is very modern and the facilites are excellent, plently of room and our party consisted of 8 adults 3 children and a baby. Would definitely recommend this villa to friends and hope to go back ourselves. Would recommend Chaplins as very child friendly but don't order starters as the portions are huge. The owner and management company are very helpful, answering our e-mails before the holiday very quickly and arranging taxis, providing cots etc. This meant our stay was enjoyable and hassle free.

Lovely villa with breathtaking views.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located close to the city centre where you can find shops and restaurants. The nearest beach is cool but we prefer the one in Lagos (15 min by car).

The villa has five spacious bedrooms with comortable beds, huge living room and amazing pool. We really enjoyed our stay. Fully recommended.

Fantastic villa, great location, all we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Located only 15 minutes walk outside Praia de Luz, this villa is fantastic. All we wanted and more! There were 9 in our party,(7 adults and 2 children) and the first impressions were 'Wow!' Laid out over several different floor levels, each party member had their own space if required, but also an amazing outside pool, kitchen, BBQ area for all. Loads of loungers, and outside space with fantastic sea views. Well equipped in all departments , with the added bonus of the cleaners comming in twice during our 9 day stay. All in all, just perfect!

Relaxing stay in a spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed in this villa for one week and it was a pleasure. The description lived up to expectation and there's nothing like seeing the villa for the first time, with the pool and sun lounge area. Outside dining was a must all week and it was great to have such a lovely space for the whole family near the bbq. I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking for a family friendly villa, near great amenities and beach.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (all in our 20s) stayed at Casa Cristdell in May for 3 nights. It was the most amazing trip. The photo's on the internet do not do this house justice! The house is absolutely huge, all the bedrooms are so comfortable and the living area is spacious and kitted out with everything you could possibly imagine!

The entertainment area is awesome! We spent most of our time lying on the deckchairs next to the pool. The pool is also heated so you can swim all year round. There is a very nice BBQ area and we ate nearly every meal around the table at the pool.

The owner of the villa is the most wonderful person. She is so accommodating. There is not anything that she has not thought of from directions to every last detail about the area and what it has to offer. The villa is in a quiet area that is not commercial at all. It is very close to all the great beaches and to the surrounding towns. We hired cars and drove to a different beach every day which I definitely suggest as they are all so different.

We also took a drive into Lagos and went to the fish market there. All the seafood is freshly caught and is so cheap. There is also a big supermarket as you drive into Lagos on the right hand side which has a bigger variety than the shops in Luz. It's worth going there to do a big shop for the duration of your stay.

If you are looking for a nice vibe at night we caught a cab into Lagos (takes about 5-10mins and cost us about 13 euros) and took a walk from the square. There are so many restaurants, bars and clubs along these roads and it is so festive!

My friends and I will be back in the near future as it is one of the best trips we have been on!

Superb villa for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us in the three generations of our family had a wonderful time. The villa fully lived up to its description and it was great that all bedrooms opened directly onto the garden or pool area. Views from the villa towards the sea were impressive. The villa is so spacious that all of us felt we had ample room to enjoy ourselves.We liked the facility of the cosy log fire on some cool April evenings The pool so warm that we could all stay in it for as long as we wished and the pool area is spaccious and well positioned for the sun all day. The covered eating and barbecue area is a great asset and is even equipped with its own fridge! The property was immaculatley clean and Filomena, the maid, worked hard, three times a week. to keep it so, Information and service from the owners in England and the agents in Portugal were given in a very friendly and efficient manner.

It was good to be able to walk to a choice of restaurants for evening meals, further out alonmg the main road and in Luz. Access to the main N125 road, to explore the surrounding area, is quick and easy and simplifies shoppibng at Intermarche on the road to Lagos.

We recommend the property withourt reservation.

Praia da Luz
Car: recommended

Praia da Luz is a lovely family orientated resort towards the quieter Western end of the Algarve coast.

The beach is long and sandy and backed by a beautiful palm tree lined promenade.

It has numerous restaurants, bars and shops. The larger town of Lagos is only a 10-minute drive away and this has a more cosmopolitan nightlife along with a lovely marina, loads more restaurants and shops and several sandy beaches.

The Algarve is famous for its fabulous golf courses and the closest are Boavista and Parque da floresta which are both a 5 minute drive.

As Casa Crisdell is so close to all these amenities car hire is not essential although we would recommend it to allow exploration of the lovely Algarve coastline, mountains and towns. The walk back to the villa from the town is uphill but there is a good taxi rank in the town if you fancy saving your legs on the way back!

Golf: The villa is located within 10 minutes drive of 2 golf courses

Parque Da Floresta

In recent years there has been a considerable investment made in the course, including the addition of a Golf Academy and the redesign of several holes.

This course has already become famous for having some classic golf holes.

The 'Postage Stamp' par 3 fifth of just 113 metres to the smallest of bunker-surrounded greens makes an accurate tee shot essential.

The par 5 ninth ranks among the toughest stroke-index 1 holes ever designed.

The picturesque, short par 3 eleventh - guarded on two sides by water - is one of the most inviting holes you could wish to play and is followed by a par 5 that leads up the 'Valley of the Wells' to another elevated green.

Having played along the 'Lost Valley' of the par 4 fourteenth, with its spectacular views to the village of Figueira and the sea, you are faced with the dramatic tee shot of the par 3 fifteenth.

Here, on the tee, players are presented with an imposing view of a large, picturesque lake that has to be carried in order to reach the wide, but shallow, green.
