Overview

Luz Villa Rental Photos and Description

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.

Gorgeous home from home

  • 5 of 5

The views are stunning across to the sea and the ever changing light. The breeze is welcome and the sea is the only noise you hear.

The house reveals its treasures each day you stay. The house is fully decorated and every day I found a new delightful artwork. The owner has great taste and it was a real treat to stay here. The garden is full of exotic interesting plants and everything was so beautifully cared for.

I preferred staying at the house more than anything! Will be back.

Truly home away - everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

Really was a home away - everything you could want in a great location.

House full of interesting books to read, dvd's, cd's and Netflix.

You would be forgiven in thinking that you were in an English garden. Roses, hollyhocks, bamboo trees, lemon tree and well tended lawn surround the welcome swimming pool.

The sea is a 10/15 mins walk to a rocky coast and a walk along the coastal path leads you to Praia da Luz which is a very attractive village and in the other direction to a small fishing village with great sandy beach. We loved Lagos - the nearest town - full of history with great cafes and bars. Also a great fish market - was worth an early morning trip for photographs.

We drove up to Silves, an ancient fortified town from the 9th-12th Century -

great ruined castle, church and museum. On descending back down numerous steps a welcome Portugese fish and salad lunch.

Next day was spent by the pool relaxing!

Would recommend as a great base to just relax or to explore further if you wish

along the Algarve coast or inland

Beautiful villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This villa beyond met our expectations. Set in an exclusive area, but easily accessible to town, we loved the privacy and space that the villa gave us. It was still an easy drive to other small towns as well. The views are outstanding from this villa. And the service was fantastic. I accidentally locked us out of the house and the property manager was there within 15 minutes with another set of keys to let us in - no problems! A cleaning service came in mid week with fresh towels, etc which was a nice add on as well! I would definitely recommend this property to other families on vacation in the Algarve.

Wonderful Villa, Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday staying at Villa Romanzeira. Everything was as described, beautiful pool and a variety of areas to sit and chill in the sun. Highlights include beautiful sunrise every morning, afternoon swim in the pool after a day's sightseeing in this wonderful part of the country and walks along the cliffs to nearby towns and beaches. Great communication with owner and management. Highly recommended.

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had an absolutely amazing time in this traditional Portuguese villa. It's close enough to the beach to make a walk convenient, but it's far enough that it's location is serene, peaceful and in a safe gated community of villas. Any questions I had were answered very quickly and we had no problems with using the wifi or lights to the pool etc. so the questions we had were based around local restaurants and towns. All around a very pleasant and trouble free experience.
