Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Luz - Casa Da Praia Algarve

3 Bedroom selfcatering cottage 50 meter from the beach. Free Wifi

Old-fashioned charm greets you everywhere you look in this 300-year-old fisherman's house, beautifully converted into a romantic cottage with private pool and garden. The soft colours of the décor are complemented natural light that bathes the rooms.

The cottage is located in a quite street very close to the beach and all the facilities of this sought-after holiday village. There is a bakery and a small supermarket close to the house so you don’t need to go far for your daily fresh bread and fruit, and your car can be parked right in front free of charge.

The cottage was completely refurbished in 2007. It contains three bedrooms, a large kitchen, dining area, bathroom with bathtub and shower, sitting room, private pool, garden with BBQ and outdoor shower. The thick walls of the traditional construction keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter.

Two beds each in the second and third bedrooms make for plenty of accommodation, and curling up with the TV, stereo, or a DVD in the sitting room, is a great way to get in the holiday mood. Start the day with coffee and honey cake by the private pool, enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the sights, then finish the evening relaxing under the fruit trees of the shady terrace.

The Casa da Praia portfolio have been personally developed by an interior and landscape designer who has lived in the Algarve for more than a decade.

The cottage is scattered with unique and eclectic pieces, gathered from her travels to South Africa, London, Cape Cod, Majorca, Ibiza, Morocco, New York, Holland etc...

Share a meal cooked in the peace of your garden, or venture out to one of the many local restaurants and bars.

For quieter evenings and undisturbed relaxation, you'll find a selection of board games and books in several languages.

Looking for vegetarian dining options, a vineyard, or where to find almond and fig orchards? Hoping to catch a glimpse of a wild boar or a dolfin? Yearning for a hand-woven blanket or a handbag made from cork?

The property has a folder contains a sampling of our personal favourites - places to go, things to see, what to buy and what to eat.

The owner lives locally and is available to help with any problems or questions.

The Neighborhood

Praia da Luz is charming, the perfect sheltered beach is a big draw for families and the atmosphere is great. Enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the remarkable historic sites in the area, and return to an oasis of calm for a cool shower and a glass of delicious local wine.

When to come

The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination.

If you're not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.

Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

As this was our first visit to Portugal and the West coast, we couldn't have asked for a better experience than this! Fabulous stay!

Everything is well equipped, and most of all, CLEAN! All the rooms and beds are ready upon your arrival, which is an extra comfort after a long journey.

Plus the welcoming was great. You get welcomed by the lovely owner, and you can reach her during the rental period in case of a problem or a question.

We felt very spoiled with this great life we had!

Truly fantastic stay, I'd definitely recommend this house, it is really worth it! Can't wait to go there again next year!

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

Good location - only 50 m to beach But cottage very basic and not adequate for 6 people The neighbours dog kennels at the bottom of garden was not pleasant because the dogs were continually barking and so difficult to relax in the back garden. Disappointing !

Owner's Response: Dear Tracy, thank you for taking the time to write a review on home away. Lovely to hear you liked the location of our restored fishermens cottage. Being located that close to the beach is really great! However I regret you used this public medium to ventilate your thoughts after our private conversations and the fact that we had to deduct cost from your deposit for the many damages and missing items in our property. There are no dog kennels at the back of the garden. Our property is perfect for groups up to 6 guests but not for your group of 11 guests! This is our precious home and strictly not a party venue. As I mentioned to you in private, we do not pay to have good reviews on our profile so returning the deducted money in exchange for a good review is not something we could do. Warm regards

Wonderful cottage in great location.

  • 5 of 5

This house is an outstanding cottage in a great location. The house was perfect, clean, tidy and well equipped. We will be returning to this house hopefully for many years to come. The owners were prompt and courteous, checking to see we were happy. There is nothing we would change about our stay and we would recommend this cottage highly without a hesitation. Thanks for a great holiday!

Amazing stay.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fantastic, just right for our family holiday and perfect location. We had a delightful week here. The first feeling you get is that the place makes you feel at ease. The design from the house, garden and pool was all very tasteful and high quality. Also, everything you could need is in the house, also an electric juicer. We made fresh orange juice every day. You can buy nice oranges from people who sell at the side of the road. All the furniture in and around the house was of good quality. We have stayed in lots of Villas in many different resorts. It was beautifully clean and well equipped. Praia da luz is a fantastic little village. Thanks so much to An for efficiency and attention to detail, making sure our holiday was special. I would highly recommend it.

Perfect idylisch huis.

  • 5 of 5

Als uitvals basis hebben wij enorm genoten van dit idylische huis.en het warme welkom.

Lagos, Sagres, surfen in Amado of "gewoon" op het strand vlakbij. Het was allemaal echt vakantie!

Het huis was perfect schoon toen we aankwamen. Het heeft alle faciliteiten die men nodig heeft op vakantie, meer dan voldoende kook gerei om zelf te koken, een BBQ, buiten douche, snelle wifi, een gezellige tuin en natuurlijk het zwembad. Het buiten gedeelte heeft een heerlijk schaduw zijde onder de advocado boom wat zalig was.

De eigenaar begroete ons bij onze aankomst heel erg hartelijk met een heerlijk welkoms packet. We voelden ons onmiddelijk thuis. De communicatie voor ons verblijf kon niet beter verlopen. Ook tijdens ons verblijf was de eignenaar er steeds als we een vraag hadden. We voelden echt dat er voor ons gezord werd.

Het huis was ideal voor een gezin met 2 kinderen maar er kunnen 6 personen slapen.

De vele spelletjes en boeken in het huis hebben onze kinderen zeker weten de apprecieren.

Je merkt onmiddelijk dat de eigenaar een achtergrond in binnen inrichting heeft. Het huisje is werkelijk tot in elk detail fantastisch en uniek ingericht. De fotos van het huis zijn fantastish maar er zijn enkele heel aangename verrassingen in het huis wanneer je er bent. We begrijpen niet goed waarom die niet meer uitgelicht worden op de website.

De locatie is perfect. Je hebt er alles binnen wandel afstand. Praia da Luz is een leuk klein dorpje.

Bedankt voor de gast vrijheid en de vele tips die we kregen. We komen zeker volgend jaar terug!

Raf, Marion, Miep, en Pien
