The Villa: The villa is the owners own holiday home. We keep everything to a high standard and offer an attractive holiday home to our visitors who we hope will enjoy it as much as we do. It is not a bland holiday let but is furnished with plants, pictures, etc to make you feel in a home from home atmosphere. For those who enjoy cooking there is a large selections of utensils in the kitchen, plus a food processor etc.

There are shady areas to sit in the garden plus of course sunny spots for the sun worshippers. The garden has a lemon and orange tree plus a selection of colourful plants and shrubs. The villa is suitable for children and has a stairgate at the top of the stairs for younger children.

Since April 2011 fans have been fitted into all the bedrooms as well as many other items. The cutlary, plates and general kitchenware has all been replaced. We have also installed new lighting throughout to give a beautiful ambience throughtout the evening and night-time.

SInce January 2012 we have replaced both en-suite bathrooms to a very high standard as well as re-tiling the entire downstairs of the villa.

The area: It is a lovely area offering you the choice of the more lively night-life of Lagos with its boutiques and pavement cafes and street performers. Or Luz itself with a good selection of restaurants, safe beaches - a real family resort. Or the rural areas offering still beautiful beaches of sand but more rugged scenery and lots of good surf. Or the fishing villages. You can travel a little inland up to Monchique in the mountains or just take a small road through the countryside. There is a golf course within 5 minutes drive of the villa and an ample selection of beautiful courses across the Algarve which are easily accessable.

Sports: There are a number of beautiful golf courses nearby, one of which within 5 minutes from the villa. Fishing excursions. Tennis courts and squash courts. Surfing, ski-ing, watersplash parks and a large range of beach related activities. Horseriding etc.

About The Owner

Sussex born and bred and owners of Sussex Lighting in Horsham, West Sussex. We have owned this property from new. It is a family property where we have spent many many years of holidays and we are looking forward to many more.

The Owner purchased this villa in 1989

What makes this villa unique

We love the peace and quiet of our little cul-de-sac with only 6 privately owned properties. The neighbours are all friendly and it is not a street of 'holiday lets' The beautiful local countryside and seaside walks are a must see for everyones stay. We have also endeavoured to keep the Villa in a traditional Portuguese style and maintain its beautiful homely feel. There are so many modern 'block' buildings available now that lose the character, feel and warmth of our Villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi



We would like to give you our feedback regarding our holiday in Portugal.



We have enjoyed many family holidays in Luz Portugal over many years, but not as much as Nova Homefield.



The Villa , pool and gardens were very clean and well maintained.



The furnishings, lighting, beds, pillows and the designer linen were well above excellence.



At first I wondered about the fans in all rooms, as we had all ways had air conditioning in the previous holiday accommodations, however, we found the fans better, we could control the temperature of the rooms without being to cold as air conditioning can be ,but of course they all so were of a high standard.



The two bathrooms both newly tiled and furnished ,was quite frankly home from home, the showers were amazing, just what the doctor ordered when you have been sunbathing around the pool all day.



Your excellent Manager Tanya was very friendly and accommodated all our requests,



I think anybody who holidays in Nova Homefield would be very happy to spend there well earned money and time there, we definitely did and would holiday with you again,

Many thanks.



Regards

A charming, well maintained spacious villa.

  • 5 out of 5
A charming, well maintained spacious and thoughtfully laid out villa. Upon arrival we were all taken with the attention to detail and the thoughtfulness of owner’s finishing touches.
The manager, Tanya was soon in touch to make sure we had arrived safely and showed us around the villa. Throughout our stay Tanya was on hand and made us all very welcome.

The 3 bedrooms on the ground floor are bright and spacious with plenty of wardrobe and storage space. The on suite bedroom however is the pick of the bunch for us grown ups! Mainly for the door that leads out to the poolside, with a coffee and read to hand is how i start my day!
Upstairs is very light and airy with a large well equipped kitchen, which is particularly handy once you discover the supmarket (Baptiste) has everything to fill the large fridge.
The lounge makes for a perfect space for a family evening in, tastefully decorated and provides lots to do. Books, games tv and plenty of seating. Outside views are lovely from the doors leading out to the balcony.
We made good use of the barbecue outside that comfortably seats 8.

I recommend a visit to the local beach for the water sports/ inflatable boat rides and other things inflatable that they will tow you out on…lots of fun. Beach bars are near by and the locals are very friendly.
Theirs not a shortage of restaurants in the town to eat out but if you like fish do trip out to Lagos where you’ll get a bigger range to choose from.

Novo Homefield - July 2014

  • 4 out of 5
As a family of 4 we stayed at the villa for 9 nights at the end of July . The villa is clean and well stocked with many accompaniments that one might not normally expect from a holiday let . Also great on site assistance from Tanya when needed and a good welcome pack .

The pool area is nice with adequate loungers and chairs - but it really needs to be used by 5.30 as the sun starts to go from it and the loungers - which is a shame after you have been on the beach all day and want to cool down . The pruning back of one tree beyond the barbecue seating area would certainly help here .

The loss of the british tv channels is certainly a fairly recent blow to all villa renters in Spain & Portugal but most punters expect some sort of recognisable tv or catch up service at their leisure . There are 'fixes' as we read while we were here and I understand that the owners are currently looking at some of these . The wi-fi though is definitely okay for holiday use .
The villa location is fine albeit a bit out of Luz with no immediate facilities close by - and you probably need a hire car for the whole trip and these do not come cheap these days unfortunately .

We went to Burgau more at night - a bit quieter . The Esquinna Restaurant is recommended and others seem good . The best snack bar / cafe in Luz is Bombordo up rua da Praia from the beach beyond Habana & Lazuli which are always packed out !

2 of us [ non-handicap players] played golf twice at Espiche Golf Club [ on the road from Espiche to Barao de Sao Joao ] and all 4 of us went to the saturday lunchtime grill there . Both are highly recommended . The monthly flea market at Barao de Sao Joao is however rubbish - avoid !

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to submit a review and for your suggestions of local restaurants and helpful advice regarding our beautiful tree - Jacaranda Mimosifolia. We fully appreciate that by the end of the day shadows are formed over some of the pool area and will discuss with our gardener, who attends every week, to see if this can be helped, without detriment to the BBQ area or garden privacy of course. It isn’t something that has been mentioned previously. We also take on-board your comments regarding watching TV whilst on your holiday and as soon as our villa manager and neighbours have a solution we will implement immediately. We expect this to be a short lived issue. We do of course have a high speed broadband connection which I hope sufficed on this occasion.
All in all we hope you had a lovely holiday. Many thanks and best regards

Perfect holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The villa was truly stunning and offers everything you could want and need for a perfect relaxing family holiday. Tanya was a diamond, and went out of her way to make sure you were enjoying your holiday. Communication with the owners Andy and Suzie was also super and they made you feel like nothing was a bother if you needed to contact them for any reason..There are lots to do in Praia itself but really would recommend hiring a car to explore surrounding areas. The welcome pack on arrival is a nice touch, especially if like us you arrive on a late flight. The pool was great and more than large enough for 3 children(4 if you count dad!) to play and have fun all day long.. All in all we cannot recommend the villa highly enough - and have been to all our family and friends.. Truly fabulous holiday. We hope to return again soon.. Keenan family :-)

Fantastic family holiday in a lovely location

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our stay at the villa last month. The villa has been decorated to a high standard and the gardens/pool being maintained throughout our stay. We arrived to a lovely welcome basket which was much appreciated when you have 2 hungry kids to feed! We can't thank Tanya enough, she was always willing to go the extra mile, from recommending the best places to even printing our boarding passes for us. Thank you!! The villa was in a lovely area and although there was a 10 minute walk into town it was easy enough and we did the walk most nights with the children (aged 2 & 4). Praia de Luz has a lovely beach which offers many water sport activities as well as many nice restaurants and bars which were all welcoming of the children.
There's plenty to do in the algarve area so is perfect for a family holiday, although we would recommend hiring a car. The nearby town of lagos is home to the stunning Praia dona ana beach (one of our favourites along with Praia de Rocha) as well as plenty of shops and restaurants. I'd also recommend taking one of the many boat trips from the Lagos harbour to see the grottos & snorkel! We also went to Aqualand and the slide & splash waterpark which were both good days outs and relatively cheap.
We can't thank you enough for our stay last month, it definitely was a home from home and we have already recommended the property to a friend. It was a lovely family holiday and we had two very upset children when we had to leave but hopefully it won't be too long until we can return!
Thank you
The Nolan family :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad that you had such a good time. As you know it is a much loved family home and we are always so pleased that time after time people have as good a time as us and maybe sometimes even better :)

Thank you for the beach recommendations, and day trip recommendations this is always helpful to other potential clients.
It is also lovely to hear that you have passed our details to your friends - probably the best advert we can get :)

Best wishes to you and your family

Lovely villa in quit area

  • 4 out of 5
The villa is spacious with nice decorated rooms. It is located together with a few other nice looking villas on a blind street. The whole house is well-kept and in very good condition. The bedrooms are on the ground floor, which protects them from the heat. From the living room, there are accesses to the balcony where you can find sun or shade all day long. The pool is bigger than it seems on the picture and stays in the sun most of the day, but even in the garden there is always a chance to sit in the shade.
The villa has easy access to the road to Burgau so you do not have to drive or walk around on empty side streets with barking dogs on your way home. The villa is on walking distance from Luz and Luz pretty beach, at least in the morning and at night when the sun has lost its heat. The nicer villages to the west are a short drive away. The walk along the sea is of course nice, but there are also nice walks in the countryside if you walk a few minutes in the Burgau direction. A navigation app in your phone will help you find your way around among all zigzagging side streets and small roads in the countryside.

Lovely villa in peaceful situation

  • 5 out of 5
The paintwork inside and out looked like new and the bathrooms and showers were very nice, the pool was just right for cooling off and had warmed up considerably by the time we left. We thought that the bedding was a very high standard. Weather was fantastic from the day we arrived, according to the locals in Moncarapacho where we stayed for the first week, the weather hadn't been so good in May (but that's probably by Algarve standards and not UK:-) the garden looked great with lemons and limes on tap and kept tidy by the gardener. The pool was cleaned to a very high standard, unlike some other places we have experienced over the years.
Would like to add that Tanya, the local manager, was a real gem!
Great source of local advice and help if needed. When things go wrong on holiday (and nothing did for us:-) it's good to know there is a local manager who you can contact and speak to in English.
The Dolphin (South African specialities) in Luz and O'Laurenco's (fantastic fresh fish - Turbot best we've ever had) in Salema were our favourite places to eat out.

Car: recommended

The area offers a widespread variety of activities from surfing to golf. From watersplash parks to Roman sites. To areas of flowers and fauna. Praia da Luz is a lovely family resort, The beach is a safe sandy bay with rock pools at one end. Voted the best beach on the Algarve for children. A pedestrian only attractive esplanade with a few small shops. There are watersports on the beach and lots of excellent restaurants close at hand. There is a good family run supermarket that offers large range of products and excellent fresh meat and vegetables. Also a fishmarket. Lagos is only 4 km away which is a 15th century town with a large marina, abundance of restaurants and lots of activities including paragliding. boat trips etc. There are also many secluded beaches closeby which are great for surfing. Most beaches do have excellent restaurants. Lots of walking areas from the villa or a short drive away. Many interesting places to visit whether historic or areas of beauty.
