Lovely villa, great pool, super location

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week in Luz. 3 generations 6 adults, 2 teenagers. The villa was easily spacious enough to accommodate our group.

Pool and gardens are lovely, pool is a good size and nice temperature. Games room is cool and fun.

Short stroll into town for an selection of good restaurants or 15 euro taxi to Lagos . Water sports / boat trips available at both .

Villa is as good or better than described. Booking and communication with the owners was simple and pleasant .

Highly recommended .

Thanks

Lovely Property in good location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property providing everything you need for a great holiday. Our family of 6 adults and three children enjoyed every minute of our stay. First impressions were very good. We have visited Praia de Luz on many occasions and always find it a nice relaxing place to be. The location of the house, being a 5 to 10 minute walk to the village centre, enhanced this as it was lovely to sit out on the front terrace each evening in the quiet. The whole process of booking , provision of information when asked was dealt with very well. The cleaning of the house and maintenance of the pool and gardens during our stay was dealt with very well with no disruption to our holiday. Thank you for letting us use your lovely property.

Ideal location with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely and relaxing week., The villa was ideal and the weather was near perfect. Having stayed in a villa up in the hills last year - which meant having to use the car each time we wanted to go into Luz, it was great to just be able to walk into town. If we holidayed in Luz again, would definitely be happy to book with Chris & Ann again.

Perfect location , beautiful quiet villa .

  • 5 of 5

Lovely comfortable villa, lots of room to relax, there was only 5 of us , but we had my brother and his family visit for the day and there was plenty of room for socialising , Free wifi a huge bonus with 3 teens as was the English TV channels . Great communication at all times before and after our stay, a wonderful location, games room was great in the basement as it was cool, the maid service twice weekly was a bonus , the beds were comfy too, the only draw back was could maybe have done with a separate fridge especially if two families are staying , as the local wine is a must and so cheap at €3 for a good bottle?!! ;) and the wonderful BBQ area got plenty of use .:) as did the local restaurants ..we really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely return again one day . Thank you chris and Anne for letting us live in your villa for two weeks :)) I say live as it was home from home -- also loved the wooden floors, much more homely , nice touch .

A great villa for holidays in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

A group of 9 friends including couples recently stayed in the villa and we had a perfect time away here. The villa was very comfortable and spacious for all of us. A really nice BBQ area where we ate outside almost the whole holiday. The location was great, a nice walk to the beach, shops, restaurants and pubs (10 minutes away). From the villa you can see some cliffs which we decided to walk up (a tiring walk!) however the views are amazing from the top. Next to the beach there is an excursion place which offers trips to see dolphins which cost 40 euros each. We wanted to go to the caves as well but the weather wasn't good for that. The contact with owners was very good, always got back to me very quickly with emails. I would definitely recommend this villa and Praia da Luz for a holiday.

The Perfect Holiday & Villa

  • 5 of 5

We arrived back last night from a week in Luz staying at Casa Berlin. The villa is even better than the photos on the website and surpassed our expectations. There is plenty of space (we were 2 families staying there) and perfect for little children as there are lots of balconies that don't have direct access to the garden/pool which meant we could keep all the sliding doors open and not have to worry about our small children around the pool. The villa is bright, airy and clean. It is located on the edge of Luz which makes it quieter and more peaceful while still being within walking distance of all the restaurants/bars & beaches. You also have a lovely view of the sea from the villa. We found it to be the perfect location.

The beach is perfect for small children too with lots of space and gentle waves. We had amazing weather (around 29/30 degrees Celsius each day) with beautiful blue skies. We made excellent use of the pool and managed to explore many of the beaches in the surrounding area (there are many to choose from) and all of them just a short drive so the kids never got frustrated with being in the car for long periods).

We hired a speedboat out of Portimao Marina the one day and managed to explore the caves and coves up towards Albufeira too. I would recommend this even though it was quite expensive. There are some really beautiful secluded beaches to discover.

All in all a wonderful holiday in a perfect villa and we would definitely think about staying there again. Thanks to Chris & Ann who were great at communicating with us prior to our holiday and answering all our queries without any trouble. And although we had no need to contact the Villa manager she came round one day as she hadn't heard from us and wanted to check everything was ok. Great service in my opinion and I would definitely recommend this villa.
