All main rooms are on the ground floor, including one twin bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen and all terraces situated around a beautiful free style swimming pool (100 /210 cm deep) with overflow (water level = terrace level). The main entrance, at the back of the property, is at street level to ensure easy access for wheelchair users. The villa is situated only 5 minutes by car from the lovely beach ‘Praia da Luz’ and the unspoiled village centre with its small collection of seafront bars, shops and restaurants. Luz is located on the quieter western Algarve (where summers are less hot) and only 1 hour drive from Faro airport. Burgau, a traditional Portuguese fishing village and Meia Praia beach are just a few minutes drive away… You can play golf nearby at any of the six international courses that are in the area (between 10 and 30 minutes drive). Lagos town is just 5 km drive and bustles with nightlife including a world class marina and sea fishing.

what a lovely villa. location on a hill with sea views. 10 min walk to Luz and beaches.
Villa is large and spacious and in very good condition. Utensils and machines etc are in good working order.
Comfy beds also.
only possible downsides are the pool is to the front of the property and hence visible from traffic on the road and neighbours. (however it is a very quiet road and we didn't see much of the neighbours).
While we were there it was very hot and had trouble sleeping. However after 4 days we we supplied with portable aircon units for each bedroom.
I would definitely recommend this villa. It is great.
great villa holiday
Beautiful property,well appointed,spacious and airy. Perfect for families. Private pool was a hit with all the family. Great outdoor space for dining and relaxing. 10 min walk into town with a good range of restaurants and a lovely beach. The photos do not do this property justice, we look forward to visiting Villa Mariposa in the future.
Dear family Gorman,
Good to hear that you and your family enjoyed staying in our villa.
Thank you and best regards,
Hans & Anna Maria.
