Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Luz - Vila Serena

2 Double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms townhouse

We searched for ages for a house to buy in the area, having holidayed in the Algarve. The estate agent took us onto the sun-terrace overlooking the pool, the palm trees and the distant blue seas and knew that Vila Serena was the perfect place for a holiday home. 80% of our visitors have or will return in 2014.

As well as spectacular sea views from the roof terrace with glorious sunsets, there's stunning communal pool, baby pool and gardens. Shade cover for your car.

Fully equipped kitchen: dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, etc

Two double bedrooms (hair dryer) with wardrobes.

We can also provide up to two good sized travel cots, high chair and baby bath.

There's a small terrace off the master bedroom, two bathrooms, spacious open plan lounge with 6 seater dining area, a wood burning stove, fully fitted kitchen, well equipped.

The upstairs bathroom has a bath/shower, loo, bidet and vanity unit. The downstairs bathroom has a shower.

Log fire in winter, long-term winter visitors' enquiries are welcome..

The property is equipped with digital TV channels and DVD, a garden terrace and patio furniture with optional BBQ. The roof terrace with loungers for private sunbathing.

There's a paperback library, board games and jigsaws for all ages.

Bed linen & beach towels are provided, you can holiday with hand luggage only!

Our caretaker Joao will meet you at the door and show you in, leaving a key for your use.

The property is located in a smart complex of only 16 houses within enclosed private gardens and a shaded car parking space out front..

Welcome pack available, please ask for details.

For longer stays, Joao and his team will freshen up the house and change sheets & towels for a small charge.

There is also an ABTA-approved shuttle bus service which tours the hotels; one family of 6 had the return journey mini-bus all to themselves!

There is an excellent local bus service that stops close by, its one of those city bus routes that charges about 2-3 Euros per trip or for a day ticket enabling you to get on and off all day long. It's very good for little legs returning from a busy day at the beach, or for exploring the local villages (or Sunday lunch at the lovely Beach Restaurant in Burgau an absolute MUST)

If you are looking to rent TWO OR THREE HOUSES in Vila Serena, we are, with enough notice, able to arrange this with our neighbouring owners. Each house sleeps up to 6.

Testimonials from our visitors!: These are what our visitors have written about their stay in Vila Serena

'..we had a fabulous holiday in your house. It was great for me when I turned the key in the lock and found your house lived up to our expectations'

'.....We had a wonderful holiday, never seen such clear skies for such a long time. Luz is lovely and we found lots to do around about and especially enjoyed walking over the cliffs at Cabo da Sao Vicente and further North towards Aljezur. In fact far too many nice places to list. Maybe calls for another holiday sometime?

Your villa is gorgeous and in a beautiful spot and so well described. Research into any new area is always full of potential problems but none found here. We are absolutely delighted with the whole experience, thank you very much.....'

'We wanted to let you know we really enjoyed our stay in Luz, the facilities in the villa were ideal for our stay' Diane & Adrian

'The accommodation was stunning, exactly what we expected'

MAKE US AN OFFER!: Take a look at the reservations....there's a few spaces, especially early September which is a truly gorgeous time to visit.

Home from home...

  • 5 out of 5
We have just spent an enjoyable week at this property for the October half term. We loved the house and felt at home as soon as we walked in. It is very nicely furnished and felt very spacious for just the four of us. The roof terrace was a welcome place to hang out, read, eat and sunbathe. It's worth noting that the property is at the top of a fairly steep hill from the main town and beach. This was fine for us but I was glad I hadn't taken my mum! It was great to have a TV, DVD and satellite channels - especially since it did rain a couple of times. Also good provision of books and games available. The town itself contains a number of restaurants but we did feel it was quite hard to find more basic fare at reasonable prices for discerning teenagers! Still, we had a great break and would definitely recommend the lovely accommodation.

Owner's Response: It's not easy pleasing teenagers but at Baptista supermarket just 10 minutes away....they sell 'familiar' foods from frozen chips, Heinz Tomato Ketchup to Coco Pops
There is the Arte Burger Bar and a pizza restaurant down the hill.....

Fantastische villa voor een zorgeloze vakantie

  • 5 out of 5
Wat een heerlijke villa om je vakantie door te brengen zonder zorgen.
Alles wat je mag verwachten van villa heeft deze villa (2 grote slaapkamers, 2 badkamers, dakterrras, balkon, keuken, woon/eetkamer, terras met stoelen en tafel).
Groot zwembad wat je met andere villa's moet delen, alleen hebben wij ze niet gezien. Heerlijk een zwembad voor je zelf, als er maximaal 6 mensen aan het zwemmen waren was het druk.
Heerlijk om op je eigen zonnestoelen bij het zwembad te hebben.
Elke ochtend verse broodjes kopen bij de Baptista supermarkt op 10 minuten lopen van de villa.
Een auto is een aanrader om die te huren en de omgeving te gaan verkennen.
Grote supermarkten (Intermaché, Lidl en Aldi) op 10 minuten rijden met de auto in de plaats Lagos.
In Luz ook voldoende eetgelegenheden om de trek te stillen.
Het strand bevindt zich op ongeveer 13 minuten lopen van de villa maar is goed te doen, heerlijk zonnebaden of even lekker banjeren langs het zeewater.
Wat ons (2 volwassenen en 2 meiden 9 en 6 jaar oud) betreft voor herhaling vatbaar, nogmaals een heerlijke villa om een heerlijke vakantie te hebben.

Stephanie bedankt voor de goede zorg !!!

Fanstatic Holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic holiday. The villa was perfect and included everything we needed. It was very clean and beautifully decorated with an amazing roof terrace (perfect for sunbathing)! The complex was well maintained and the pool was excellent set in a lovely garden area.
Luz itself was brilliant, everyone was friendly and the food was delicious in every restaurant we visited. The beach is gorgeous and very pictuesque, our little one loved it!
We would recommend this villa to everyone but especially families!
Thank you Bill and Steph for a holiday to remember.

Lovely apartment and relaxing holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was just as it was described in the advert and, if anything, the photos don't do it justice! It's comfortable, clean and equipped with everything you need. The pool is large and the sunbathing areas around it never felt cramped - even in the middle of August. Each apartment has its own loungers for around the pool which means there's never a race to reserve a space. The views over the bay are spectacular, especially from the roof terrace. It's an easy 5 minute walk down to the supermarket (not so easy uphill on the way back but keeps you fit!) and Baptista has everything you need. Plenty of nice restaurants within easy reach. Perfect for a relaxing holiday, with just enough other families around for the children to make friends, but not so many that you feel overcrowded. The beach was busy, especially on our first week when the Portugese were also on holiday, so we didn't venture down there much but no one minded because the pool area was so nice. A lovely holiday and we were very sad to leave!

Beautiful Villa in perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
Have just returned after a fantastic week in Luz. The villa is in a quiet development - the pool is just steps from the back door and we had it to ourselves most days. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is located at the top of a steep hill however my 74 year old father managed the hill easily several times each day! The owners not only have equipped the villa to a high standard but left their invaluable recommendations for local restaurants. Luz has the perfect balance of a beautiful beach, quiet village and upmarket (but excellent value) restaurants. We would happily return to both Luz and Vila Serena again.

GORGEOUS in SEPTEMBER....if you're looking for a wonderful holiday then...

Praia da Luz is a Village with a famously beautiful Blue Flag beach & sea front, located 5 kilometres from the larger town of Lagos. There are many superb restaurants offering a range of well-priced food, beach cafes, bars, cash machines, a bank, medical centre and supermarkets - the nearest and most interesting being 10 minutes walk away.

The beach is gorgeous, sandy and flat with large cliffs to the left, and is half a mile wide. Water sports available in the summer months. Beach sun beds and parasols can be hired for a small fee. A promenade running the length of the beach is fringed with palm trees and various cafes.

There are many good golf courses close to Praia de Luz the nearest two being Boavista and Parque de Floresta which are amongst the best in Europe.

The sand-duned beaches on the west coast, 45 minutes drive, provide brilliant surfing and parascending. Lively club scene in Lagos -10-20 euros in a taxi.

Soothing relaxation can be had at the spa, a five-minute drive away.
