About Fiona Harris
I love renting Vila Margarida to holdaymakers-nothing is nicer than hearing people's stories of happy holidays on their return home!
Fiona Harris purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Fiona Harris chose Luz
We had holidayed in Praia da Luz since we were teenagers and when we were lucky enough to be able to buy a holiday home it was the only place we wanted to buy! Vila Margarida was the ideal villa in the ideal location!
What makes this Villa unique
Vila Margarida is ideal because it is so private and yet to close to the beach and all the bars, show and restaurants-the ideal combination.

First time on holiday with the Grandchildren and children staying in a villa!
The flexibilty of the rooms and bathrooms was excellent and the facilities, equipment and standard of accommodation was superb!
The owner was extremely helpful throughout the process and even organised our transfers.
The cleaner, gardener and pool cleaner were polite and courteous as were the staff at the local shops.
Every one of us said we would love to come back here if we are lucky enough to get the chance!
The overall proerty was excellent. The villa is spacious and well laid out. a beautiful property.
Very impressive property. The villa itself was well kept and laid out well. We had 7 people and it never felt crowded. The maid and property manager were excellent and helpful.. The weather was poor while we were there so we didn't take advantage of a beautiful grounds and pool area but it looked great A great view from the upstairs balcony of the town and the ocean. On the sunny mornings that we did have it was a treat to sit on the balcony listening to the birds and looking at the view. Every thing is within walking distance with 2 close grocery stores and lots of eating places. The ocean walkway is also a close walk. Its abit difficult to find the first time ( try get there in day light ) and you have to be careful when driving out of the driveway but overall the place was great
Thank you for your kind review-we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay despite disappointing weather this March.
We had a wonderful 7days at Vila Margarida , lovely well established Vila with beautiful gardens and a tennis court ,we aged from 6 to 63 and all really enjoyed our stay .
Thank you, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Vila Margarida
Fantastic villa, location and weather
We enjoyed a one week stay at Vila Margarida and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The villa was clean and warm. The management team were helpful. The pool was perfect for adults and kids (though definitely get the pool heater on if you go out of season). Praia da Luz was it's usual charming, laid-back self and we were lucky enough to enjoy a few days on the beach thanks to unseasonably high temperatures.
Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay so much. Many thanks
Excellent villa holiday
The villa is very private yet close to the town and beach which are only minutes away. A well stocked supermarket is also a short walk. My family stayed for one week and we all loved it. Stunning views, surrounded by birds which for us was perfect. Lots of great seating areas too. We would not hesitate in recommending this villa
Thank you for your lovely review Linda-I am so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Vila Margarida.
A well proportioned, typical Portuguese villa, with excellent covered balcony for protection.
A good 5 bed villa, with relatively small , but nice pool and tennis court. Upside down set up , with dining room, lounge, kitchen and balcony upstairs to take advantage of the views. Private villa, up a cobbled driveway and about 10 mins walk from town and 15 from the excellent beach. A quieter resort than most in the Algavre, but the better for it! Some good local restaurants.
Thank you Mark, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Just for clarity for other potential guests reading reviews the pool is 8m x 5m. Obviously everyone has different opinions on what is big or small so I hope that giving the dimensions helps-in my experience the pool at Vila Margarida is fairly large for private villa, but obviously small compared to a hotel or larger apartment complex.
Also whilst there are several longer routes to the beach if you prefer to take them , it is certainly easy to walk to the beach in under 10 minutes.
I am glad that you like the covered balcony-its a spot I love to relax!
