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.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

After spending 2 weeks in nearby Lagos a couple years ago I was very eager to return to this part of Portugal. Whilst I didn't think anything could surpass the amazing time I had before, my stay here far exceeded all my expectations... just amazing.

Waking up in this villa with the expansive ocean spread before you is a feeling so great I cannot explain. The town nearby (Luz) is a 2 minute drive and has everything you need, as well as a lovely beach with massive flat rocks perfect for sunbathing. It is a lot more chilled out than nearby Lagos which I appreciated, but if you feel the need for a big night out on the town then Lagos is only a 15 minute drive.

Besides the location itself, the house is grand, and especially clean. Large living spaces, utensil stocked kitchen, bright and breezy bedrooms, bbq area, outdoor lounge and let's not forget the swimming pool. It was nice to come home from a morning spent at the beach, have lunch on the lush lawn and then be able to go for a dip in your own back yard. Felt like a princess.

Couldn't recommend this place more.

In close proximity to incredible beaches and a local town with all the necessary amenities, Casa Romanzeira was the ideal holiday location. The house was immaculate when we arrived and continued to be so with the visits from the charming cleaner, Marianela.

I would recommend this to anyone.

Perfect for a family or group of friends.

Whilst the property is very private and quiet, its only a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of Luz and a 15 minute drive from Lagos.

Some of the activities we enjoyed whilst staying was walking to local beaches, having a sunset barbecue and lounging endlessly by the pool. There is also a selection of beach/pool toys for all ages.

TV has netflix for a cosy night in!

Really lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect, very roomy, the view is really great and the pool is so refreshing after sitting in the sun. The town, Luz, had a very nice relaxed feeling. There are plenty of beaches nearby, all of which are beautiful.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

The villa was really amazing, we arrived at night and so we were very surprised to see such a beautiful view of the sea just ahead of us, and not far either! Was a great amount of space for 8 of us, and in fact everyone was happy in terms of comfort and space, in bedrooms and in dining areas and chill out areas, such as living room, balconies, pool area etc. The pool area was really good as there was always sun shining throughout the entire day, as well as a lot of toys, lilos and balls to keep us all entertained!

The owner also provided us with a comprehensive booklet on how everything works, contact numbers etc. - any queries I had the booklet came in handy!

The closest town Luz, is handy for supermarket, lunches and a pretty decent beach- only 5 minute drive away from the villa. However, we found that Lagos, about a 15 minute drive was better for restaurants.

The best beaches we went to were merely 10-15 minute drive from the villa, which meant we weren't spending our days just driving, but actually sunbathing with a drink in hand!

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

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
