The property is spacious with fantastic views and great location. A few minute walk to town center and beach, short drive to other attractions on the coast. Luz is a great town with some very nice restaurants. The weather in late May was perfect. We can't wait to come back to Luz and Ocean Villa 4

The view from the terrace is beautiful and is perfect for sunrises and sunsets over the sea. As we have an energetic 2 year old the heated pool and surrounding area is great as it's so fun and safe. The beach is 5 min away (and that's if you're dawdling!) as are some wonderful, varied restaurants where we were always made to feel welcome no matter what mood the toddler was in. Lovely family friendly villa in a beautiful, charming village.
