                                                                                          We recently booked the villa for a week and held our wedding there which was a very small intimate affair - everybody was in awe at the sheer beauty of the surroundings and commented on the natural beauty of the gardens.The villa has everything you could possibly need and feels like a home away from home (if your home is a luxury villa lol) If you like character and charm this is definitely right for you. The maid julia was excellent and although has no english she makes herself understood if needed,she whizzed about without being intrusive, also Emma the villa manager was only a phone call away and was so helpful. I dealt with the owner Stephen via email and found him to be very helpful. Car hire is a must to this villa and I would say it would not suit people who are planning on going out drinking every night as getting a taxi home caused us issues as the last kilometer to the villa is on a dusty track and the taxi men didn't want to have to wash their cars after!!! Initially the track can put you off as it feels like you are going into an isolated area and also the road getting slightly rougher terrain - however its completely worth it once you reach the villa. There are other villas around so you are not isolated but you do indeed feel like you are as nobody is overlooking you at all as the garden makes it so secluded. The wifi was perfect and also the satellite tv was indeed all our usual sky package channels including sports and movies although it was only watched for the odd match as the euros were on during our stay. Myself and my new husband plus my parents, my sister and partner and 3 kids stayed in the villa and I would recommend it to anybody holidaying with their inlaws as their is a separate little cottage on the same property (where my parents stayed) so for grandparents to have a little space of their own this is fantastic. Although not an issue for us I can imagine some inlaws would be happy to not be on top of one other all the time so this little cottage is ideal. Their is table tennis, lots of kids pool toys which we also added too...Im sure most people leave things behind. There is also the necessities such as salt, sugar, teabags - all there on arrival. I cant tell you how peaceful and beautiful this villa is so just go there and see for yourself. We had an amazing time and as the setting for our garden style wedding it holds wonderful memories - im hoping to return to celebrate many anniversaries to come.....

The owners are a lovely, friendly couple. Jan in particular was amazingly helpful! The apartment was spacious and comfortable with daily maid service if required. Sea view balcony was a great place to while away time - warm but out of direct sunshine and able to see the beach. The beach is so close and it's a great beach! Lots of golden sand and water which is shallow for quite a long distance with virtually no current so great for kids. Along from the sandy part is an interesting more rocky part with rock pools to explore. There are a number of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. There are also supermarkets, one of which will deliver food to the apartments. There are market stalls and small shops dotted about for beach essentials and holiday souvenirs. The pool at the apartments is lovely with good shade coverage and a poolside cafe bar. Between the apartment, pool and beach, you have everything for a great family holiday all within easy reach. We did venture into Lagos on the bus and took a grotto trip from the marina which was a lovely addition. We booked this through reception. The Mayers also organised airport transfers for us and this went very smoothly with friendly drivers. Don't hesitate to book a holiday here! The hospitality was amazing and the facilities of both Mayer Apartments and Praia da Luz are perfect for a relaxing holiday.
