About Judith Johnson

We are a family of four.

Our children are 13 and 11

We have holidayed in Praia Da Luz since our children were babies and have owned this house for 8 years.

It is mainly enjoyed by our family and friends who all love the location.

Judith Johnson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Judith Johnson chose Luz

We chose the area because of the family feel in the resort.

We now love the surrounding beaches and even though Luz beach is on our doorstep , each beach seems to offer something a little different and we love to visit them all.

The children especially love the beach bar in Luz as it is great for them and us !

Definitely a relaxing holiday for everyone.

What makes this villa unique

The location is great.

You do not have to park a car to get to the beach - which can be tricky in high season.

Beach walks before breakfast.

Excellent walks for all abilities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Judith,

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home in Luz, it really was wonderful and so close to the beach and the restaurants and the supermarket.

The house lived up to all our expectations too and was very comfortable. We did as you asked and got rid of the rubbish and hung the towels outside so they were dry to clean!!

Thank you for your recommendations of beaches and small villages all of which we visited also the directions to the villa were excellent- we would have been lost without them!!

We wish we were still there and not here in rainy England!

We will definitely be on touch to book again!

Thanks so much.

The fantastic beach at Luz is only 5 minutes walk from the property. There are many other beaches to visit in the area and this is highly recommended. Burgau, Salema, Figuera , Xavial , BlueWave + more. Many of the beaches have great beach bars offering good local food and drink.


Faro is the nearest airport and is approx 55 minutes away. Car hire is not essential.


The villa is walking distance from bars/restaurants and supermarkets in Luz. Lagos is the next largest town and offers Meia Praia beach, marina and excellent nightlife for all ages. The typical Portuguese villages of Burgau and Salema are only 10 minutes away by car. The rugged Atlantic coast and excellent surfing are 20 minutes away by car at Vila da Bispo - well worth a visit.
