Overview

About the property

4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, beautifully presented, completely equipped.

Located in the wonderfully unexploited Western Algarve, the Villa affords an uninterrupted panorama of the Atlantic Ocean, from its secluded setting in 2 acres of privately-owned grounds.

3 double bedrooms open to the wrap-around terrace, all with sea-views. A 4th acts as a single-adult, or kids double bedroom and/or hang-out

Within it’s own secure, gated boundary, guests will find a pool, beautiful gardens and exceptionally designed outdoor living spaces.

Please note that the swimming pool is not gated.

The breathtaking, rugged coast is under 8 minutes walk away, with the coastal-path leading directly to the beautiful seaside village of Praia da Luz, along the very safe coastal path.

The area has some of the best family beaches in the Algarve: clean, golden, and sheltered. The famous Costa Vicentina National Park is close-by and there are a number of exceptional golf courses within easy reach.

The Villa gives you comfort, seclusion, space, views, private pool and private grounds but with ready access to the outside world.

Praia da Luz: A lovely beach with lots of restaurants, bars and cafés; a bank, shops for everything you are likely to need and all in a very attractive setting. It is an ideal resort for family holidays, with safe beach and activities...artists and bands perform along the beach-side Promenade if you want a break from the beach.

There are also ruins of Roman baths from 3rd to 5th century A.D

The main supermarket is Baptista,, fresh produce and a great selection of wine.

Nearby is a wonderful deli and fresh fish counter.

Lagos is around a 10-minute drive away. Praia da Luz is reachable via bus from Faro and there are regular bus services connecting Praia da Luz with the rest of the Algarve.

A Portuguese National Park borders the Praia da Luz Region and a number of golf courses are within easy reach.

Local Attractions: Lagos Zoo is only a short drive away and it concentrates on smaller animals - the monkey islands are brilliant - it is an ideal afternoon out. It's not too big, so not overly tiring for young children and also has a 'pets corner'

Slide and Splash at Lagoa is the nearest water park . Going west towards Sagres, there is a Blo kart track just beside the N125 past Vila do Bispo.

Find good surfing at Sagres on the western Atlantic coast and Fishing Trips run out of Lagos.

Relaxing stay in the Algarve with amazing view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfect for a big family. The 6 of us, 3 adults and 3 teens were very comfortable and there are lot of spaces for everyone to relax and enjoy the day. The pool was a perfect end of day relaxing moment. Kitchen well equipped with beautiful Portuguese serving dishes. The leaving area being upstairs made us smile each day as we were able to enjoy the stunning view from breakfast through dinner. The location of the villa in the area is great, with no neighbor on one side, it was very peaceful and quiet. I would highly recommend this villa and would come back anytime.

Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

To find somewhere that gives you everything you need from a holiday is hard to find. To say that Casa Romantica gives it to you again and again is no understatement! From the peaceful tranquility of the house and gardens, to the amazing pool, or the terrace and bar-b-q area to sit and eat with family or the welcoming shade from the willow tree to lay underneath and read your book. This place really has it all. The house is fully stocked, with everything you need to make sure your holiday is a stress free one. It really is truly magical. Thank you Casa Romantica for the best holiday I have had in years. We'll definitely be back next year!!!

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

The villa and its location exceeded our expectation. It has all the amenities you need, charming comfortable ambiance with a local flair and gorgeous views. The gardens are filled with beautiful fragrant flowers and little pathways that my girls loved exploring each morning and evening. We were all a bit heavy hearted leaving and cannot wait to return again soon.

A fantastic villa with amazing sea views.

  • 5 of 5

The minute we arrived at the villa we knew we had made the right choice.It felt like we were at home immediately as had such a lovely ambience. The views are outstanding of the sea and the gardens are really well kept and looked after. The lemon trees provided us with lemonade also. What we loved was that it was so quiet and private but still close enough to the village for provisions.There is a lovely walk to the village along the sea path. Our favourite restaurant was one in the gardens of the old fort in the main square.Food fantastic and sea views stunning. The local supermarket had everything we needed including fresh fish delivered every morning.The villa was clean and tidy and very well maintained whilst still keeping the traditional Portuguese feel with lots of character.

We had a lovely stay and will definately be coming back to holiday in the most wonderful villa. We didn't want to leave!Thank you Praia de Luz for a very special holiday.😄

Paradise in Luz

  • 5 of 5

6 of us had the pleasure of spending 3 fantastic days in this beautiful villa in wonderful Luz. Our first time in Portugal but certainly not our last. The villa was very comfortable for 6 or more people and had every necessary amenity. The pictures do not do justice to the fantastic view of the sea and the beautiful pool and gardens. The weather was cool when we were there in March but it did not not keep is from enjoying the property and comforts of this special place. I can not wait to return.
