Location was excellent, walkable to the beach, restaurants, grocery store and cafes. Villa had a good layout and having a pool was nice to have. Really enjoyed our stay, would come back another time.
We have just returned from a great stay in this lovely villa. We were 2 families with 4 children, 5 and under, and it was much more spacious than we thought from the photos. It was extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen. There were pool and beach toys, and even puzzles for children and adults which made family life very easy. We have been to the area several times and would definitely stay in this villa again. The pool with heating was perfect, as we have had pools unheated previously that have been too cold for the children. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach, so a little further out but then very quiet. Caroline was really easy to communicate with and very helpful. Thank you!
Beautiful villa, fantastic view and was overall far better than we were expecting- will def return!
Perfect size and ideal location
We have been to Luz a few times and the Villa worked a treat; we were even able to accommodate our son and his girlfriend who did a flying visit to us for a few days. Difficult to fault really. Thanks
Our 4th visit to this luxury villa. Perfectly located just ten minutes walk from the beach and restaurants at Luz. Well equipped and comfortable for our party of eight adults (although we did note that plenty of extra beds were available on request for children). There was ample room and enough sun beds for us all to laze around the pool and enjoyed 'Al fresco' dining on the large upper terrace, we also loved to sit around the fire on the colder evenings of March. For the more adventurous, just one hours walk away (perfect to work up an appetite for lunch) halong the coastal path is Burgau, where there are many more restaurants to enjoy.
This is the third time we have stayed at this lovely villa. It has everything one could want for a relaxing, stylish holiday and then a little more. We refer to the pool side ensuite bedroom as 'our' room when we visit. The villa is superbly presented and linen and towels have that luxury feel. We love eating in and cooking in the professionally equipped kitchen or taking a short stroll to Luz town and visiting some of the fabulous restaurants. Our favourite is the beach bar located about 3 miles along the beach at nearby. Enjoy and like us you will be looking forward to your next visit.
The villa is just a 10 min walk from the sweeping sandy beach at Luz. With a Blue Flag rating, it is ideal for families offering safe bathing and a wide range of water sports.
