About the property

Villa in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful location, only 5 minutes walk to the beach, praia da luz is a great family resort

Set in praia da luz. The villa is 5 mins walk to the sandy beach and 10 mins drive to the town of lagos. There are also many other beaches within short driving distance. The resort hosts plenty of restaurants, bars and shops within short walking distance (5-10mins). For those seeking more night life, lagos is recommended. There are several golf course close by and three great waterparks, the furthest being a 45 minute drive away. For anyone who has experience of 'seaworld' in florida, a day trip to 'zoomarine' is highly recommended, again about a 45 minute drive.

Great villa & pool.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this villa. Everything very clean and has all you need for an enjoyable stay. Short walk to shops and restaurants but there is a hill although not very steep. The owner was very helpful and replies very promptly. Would definitely return.

chilled and relaxed

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a great place to stay, very specious and well looked after, very clean, the pool was amazing, we spent most of the time in the pool, my son loved the villa from the moment we walked in,

you feel well at home here, I wrote to len before and after our holiday he was very quick to get back to us, and answer any questions that we had, the shops and beach is all within walking distance, but there are hill that you have to walk to get to and from the villa, we managed but did find it hard with a pushchair, But don't let this put you off from staying here, There are some great places to eat down on the beach and towards the beach .This villa is great and central the pictures don't show how big the place is.So once agin thank you for a relaxing break with my mum, dad and 5 yr old autistic son.

The Amors

We would defiantly want to return in the future.

Thank you len for aloing us to stay in your vlla,

Lovely villa, clean and comfortable with lots of nice little extras, and a wonderful pool.

  • 4 of 5

The villa is lovely. Spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. Lots of little extras like books, toys for little ones and so on. Very much appreciated. The pool is great, and is heated which makes such a difference. Easy walking distance into Luz, and to the beach, but still very quiet in the evenings. The driver from Hoppa had a little bit of trouble finding it as I didn't have a printed map.

The only negative comment was that we could only get one channel on the TV when we returned at night.

We went at the end of August, and it was very very hot. I think if I returned to Luz, it would not be in August.

There are a great many restaurants in Luz, and a variety of food available, Portuguese and English (Handy for fussy kids) also Indian and Chinese, and any number of bars.

Other than the beach though, there is not much nearby for kids if you don't hire a car.

I would however definitely recommend the villa and Praia da Luz.
