About Manus Bray

Manus and Grainne Bray are the proud owners of this beautiful villa.

Based in southern Ireland and working in the legal profession, they love to get away from it all and relax in Praia da Luz.

Manus Bray purchased this villa in 2004

Why Manus Bray chose Luz

As soon as we opened the front door and saw the stunning sea views, we fell in love with this wonderful property and location. It is totally different from the eastern side of the Algarve & that's what we loved about it.

What makes this villa unique

Relaxed tranquil setting but close enough to enjoy all the benefits of Luz, Lagos, Burgau & surrounding areas. Private heated pool. Private Front & back gardens. Unobstructed sky & sea views. BBQ on the front terrace area with table & seating. Air Conditioning in all rooms. Free WiFi. Comfortable, modern villa with all the home comforts. Flat screen TV with a vast range of European and International channels. Good local restaurants. Close to golf courses, sports facilities, sailing & general activities. A great place to relax, unwind & to get away from it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say we have the most fabulous time at your villa. Everything was as we remembered from our first stay with the villa being excellently maintained and spotlessly clean. It is THE most relaxing place to spend a couple of weeks affording us both the peace and quiet of the villa (noise of our excited children aside) and plenty of places to go nearby.

As I look out at the rain today I so miss the view from the balcony.

Better start saving for next time.

Thanks again

Mags and happy family

Amazing Ocean View Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful property. It was very clean and well appointed. We enjoyed the pool as well, and found the location perfect for day trips or for eating locally at the many fine restaurants close by. We didn't encounter a single issue or problem and we would most definitely return!

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in a lovely villa with beautiful views from the balcony. Our 3 year old grandson loved the pool and we wanted for nothing and that's 3 generations of family. The villa is well equipped, clean and tidy and is an easy walk to Luz with it's bars and restaurants. It's a place we've been to a few times now and I'm sure it won't be the last!!!

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of two couples. The villa was very spacious, impeccably clean and comfortable and finished to a very high specification in terms of both furnishings and equipment. We loved the panoramic views of the town and the ocean while breakfasting on the upper terrace and also enjoying a drink in the evening. We couldn't find any faults and we all agreed we would certainly return. Fantastic!

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in July 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pictures of the view from the balcony on this site do it absolutely no justice, it is breathtaking!

I think the pool heating is a must, especially if you have young children.

There are 2 good supermarkets a 10 minute walk away, and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, I would recommend Paulos, on the walk down to the town. In previous reviews the walk back up the hill was mentioned, it is a steep incline but great exercise!.

We would hope to book this villa again in the near future.

Owner's Response: Many Thanks Brendan, for taking the time to write a review of your stay at our villa in Luz. We are delighted that you enjoyed the villa and hope you had a well deserved holiday. I note you recommended a restaurant called "Paulos", which must be new, as I am not familiar with it but look forward to visiting it when I am back in Luz in October. You mentioned that you would be back and we certainly look forward to your return visit perhaps next year. It was a great pleasure having you stay at the villa. Take Care, Manus.

Car: not necessary

The village of Luz has cobbled streets leading down to the sandy beach with a pedestrian promenade. It has a relaxed, holiday atmosphere and offers basic shopping, cafe's, bars and a large variety of restaurants and a wide range of water sports. There is a local car hire company in the village. There are good spa's in Luz & Lagos & English speaking hair salons. There is a cliff walk between Luz & the village of Burgau, along the sea. There is a good bus service between Luz & Lagos. It takes approx 20-30mins by bus & 10 mins by car. There is also a taxi rank beside the bus stop, close to the church in Luz. The closest cinema is in Portimao, which is approx 20mins away by car. Dolphin watching trips & sunset cruises can be booked in the village, down by the beach. There is a private Masseur operating on the beach from a gazebo. There is an old ruin of Roman Baths along the promenade, open to the public. There are Indian, Chinese, Portuguese, Italian, South African & European restaurants available in Luz, catering to all tastes. There's an excellent ice cream shop, opposite the church en route to the beach, selling daily, homemade local ice cream & it's very popular. Some cafe's & bars organise live music in the evenings, where you can sit outside & enjoy a drink or a coffee after dinner, by the sea.

Facilities at, or near, Praia da Luz include scuba diving, water-skiing, windsurfing (Surf Experience), microlite, sailing, horse riding at Quinta do Paraiso Alto and, of course, golf. There are four courses within a 20 minute drive; the championship course at Penina, Palmares at Lagos, Parque de Floresta at Budens and the Boa Vista course between Lagos and Luz. The historic town of Lagos is well worth a visit.

Horse riding and lessons are available at a local estate. Luz Bay Club Hotel has indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and squash courts, Turkish baths and a gym; visitors can buy a day pass to use these facilities. There is a doctors surgery, 'LuzDoc' & a dentist's surgery 200 meters away from the villa in the village of Luz. Bank & Post Office are also located in the village.

There is a Cultural Center in Lagos which hosts art exhibitions, musical & theatrical events throughout the year.
