About the property

Sunny Detached Villa. 3 Bed, 2 Bath Sleeps 6 + put up bed & cot. Close to beach

This quiet detached holiday property is a spacious traditional villa situated in one of the original residential "parques" of Praia da Luz and within 200m of the popular blue flag beach. It is a comfortable holiday home that offers all the requirements for a relaxing and peaceful holiday in a delightful situation.

The house is surrounded by a large walled garden full of wonderful colour and scents. Around Easter the citrus trees are full of fruit and blossom, the lemons are available to be picked for most of the year and in the autumn there are even pomegranates if they're not too high up! The lawns, big enough for a game of frisbee, benefit from natural shade from numerous mature trees and surround a large heated swimming pool of approx 11 x 5m (1.5m - 2.4m deep) - perfect for lots of laps, energetic play or a quiet float! The pool can be heated, and has a cover to retain the heat at night. Please be aware that it is deep and is not fenced. Six sun loungers, cushions, occasional tables and umbrellas/umbrella stands are provided.

The accommodation is all on the ground floor and is equipped with air conditioning/heating in the sitting room and bedrooms. The front door leads into an impressive double height entrance hall from which all rooms are accessed. The combined sitting and dining rooms, which are also double height, are divided by a chimney breast (with open fire) and lead out onto a covered patio providing a poolside dining area and to the covered BBQ.

The comfortable sitting room has seating for eight, TV, DVD, Wii (with a few games) and CD/Radio. The dining room has a large wooden table with seating for six - which can be extended to seat eight, a built in marble topped serving area and a hatch to the kitchen.

The kitchen is modern and functional. There is a gas hob with electric oven, a fridge freezer, micro wave, coffee machine and dishwasher. An external door leads to the rear of the house.

Two broad shallow steps in the hall lead down to the three bedrooms all of which have built in wardrobes.

Bedroom 1 is very large, light and spacious and has a door leading out to the pool. The bed is a super-king but can be made up as two large singles. There is an en-suite shower room.

Bedroom 2 is also large and has two single beds with room for a third put-up bed (or cot), if required. There is an external door to a shared covered patio area at the rear of the house.

Bedroom 3 has two single beds and a small sink unit. The external double doors lead out to the covered patio shared with bedroom 2. Beds 2 and 3 share a light and attractive bathroom with a bath and a separate large shower.

There is a washing machine for your exclusive use and clothes lines at the rear of the house. An iron and ironing board are available in a small room off the main hall.

For security, the garden has a lockable pedestrian gate, and access from the covered car port is also through a locked door, although the door can be opened from the inside without the use of a key. The carport will take two small cars, but there is also additional parking in the cul-de-sac garage area.

Ceu Rosado is registered as a Portuguese Estabelecimento de Alojamento Local and have a tourist license (AL-13831).

About Tiina Hill

I've been coming to Luz since I was a year old and now my children have too. It remains one of our favourite places in the world and we wouldn't swap it for anything! - and getting there is so much easier than it used to be..

Tiina Hill purchased this villa in 1979

Why Tiina Hill chose Lagos region

My family moved from England to this part of Luz in 1963 when there was nothing here but a small fishing village, and although none of us live here permanently any more we have never left and we still love it. Since we up-sized to this property in 1979, four generations of our family - and lots of friends - have enjoyed the quiet and relaxing atmosphere and peaceful gardens at any and all times of the year whether in the fury of a wind-lashed winter storm, the almond blossom cool of a scented Portuguese spring or listening to the cicadas under a blazing summer sun. It's unbeatable down time!

What makes this villa unique

The south facing property was built in the 1960's and retains much of its original airy charm. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings and full of light - very welcome on hot summer days. The private gardens are always full of flowers and there are generous lawns, citrus fruit and shade trees and the beach, cafes and ice cream kiosk are only minutes away - not that you'd notice it. What's not to like!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely Villa the photos do not do it justice. Being going to Villas in the Algarve for 8 years now and this one is kept immaculate, very private, gorgeous gardens and very close to the beach/shops/restaurants. All communication excellent both before you go and when you get there. Cant think of a single negative thing to say. Little piece of heaven in Luz :-)

Overall the property suited my needs

  • 4 of 5

Very well situated, just 3 minutes from the beach and restaurants. The nearest supermarket was about 5 minutes walk away, the others about 10 minutes or so. I was also impressed by the well maintained grounds. The only adverse comment I have is that some of my party found some of the single beds very uncomfortable. Also there was no cot as requested for the two year old, and apart from that everything was ok. I would recommend this property for a group of friends or family.

Gorgeous Villa

  • 4 of 5

Ceu Rosada is a lovely, spacious, well equipped Villa, one minutes walk from the beautiful sandy beach of Praia de Luz. Everything you need for a family holiday, we were there in February and would recommend paying the extra for heating. Would love to return in warmer weather to get the full benefit of the pool x

Great Holiday ....

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely villa and private, peaceful gardens for sunbathing & eating al fresco. Great location near to the beach and easy access to surrounding coastal walks. The owner and services were very helpful. A return visit highly likely!

Simply fabulous

  • 4 of 5

We are currently on the last day of our holiday and all feeling pretty sad to leave. The villa is wonderful , everything we could have wanted and more. We came for sun and got it every day. Our three teenage boys (17,15,14) have taken full advantage of the pool which is a fantastic size. Luz itself was quiet which appealed to us , everyone is so friendly. A truly special holiday. Thank you

dès que nous avons vu le jardin magnifique, la piscine gigantesque et la vue sur la falaise on a su qu'on allait passer de superbes vacances. Nous adorons la nature, l'espace et se sentir chez nous pas à l'étroit. Le jardin est fait pour que nous soyons sans vis à vis c'est très rare de trouver ça. C'est simple, on est tombé amoureux de cette maison... L'emplacement est incroyable à même pas 100 mètres de la plage. Tout est fonctionnel, si vous optez pour la climatisation ou chauffage et chauffage piscine, ne vous inquiétez pas c'est de la qualité, ça marche très bien. L'intérieur de la maison est très bien agencé, on respire tout est aéré avec ces grands espaces et sa hauteur sous plafond. Les meubles ne sont pas modernes mais alors là ce n'est vraiment pas important tant l'agencement et la situation de la maison est incroyable et magnifique. Vous l'avez compris on aimerait beaucoup avoir cette maison, ce n'est pas possible alors on y reviendra avec un immense plaisir et une grande tristesse à chaque retour en France...

Bettina est charmante, l'équipe de Luz service aussi et spéciale merci à Izabel notre adorable femme de ménage et à José le paysagiste très intelligent dans la conception du jardin.

En plus si vous voulez bouger, y a pas de problème vous êtes à côté des plus beaux coins de l'Algarve. C'est simple faut rester au moins 3 semaines.

It's the best aera in Algarve, and this house it's the best place in Algarve because it's like you don't have neighbour, you fell free with this nice cliff vu and you go by foot to the beach almost 50 or 100 meters it's amazing place, but if you prefer small modern house with terrace and everybody can see you don't choose Bettina house.

Bettina house it's for clever people, I am afraid if everybody knows it shoud be full book all the time...

we are in love with Bettina house. You are so Lucky if you choose it. and after you understand better what i try to explain.

Luz is a wonderful village which boasts all sorts of amenities, but has a very relaxed atmosphere. The villa is located a gentle walk away from the fantastic blue flag beach where there are many water sports on offer for adrenaline junkies as well as those wishing to take it easy: paragliding and "tube" rides, skiing, canoeing, pedaloes etc. There are numerous cafes and restaurants along the front to sit and watch the world go by or where to grab a drink and ice cream and head back to the sand.

The nearest town of Lagos has a long and interesting history and boasts numerous fascinating churches, museums and fortifications. There are wonderful twisting streets and leafy squares housing all manner of shops and restaurants offering traditional menus of delicious local fish, shellfish and game as well as cuisine from all corners of the earth.

The broad paved Avenida runs parallel to the river and is a delightful place to stroll and watch the private yachts and fishing boats, and from the marina one can have trips on a glass-bottomed boat, visit grottoes, go dolphin watching, deep sea fishing or take a BBQ cruise along the coast whilst watching the sun go down!

Lagos Zoo (15km, car required) is a small but interesting zoo popular with both children and adults, and Tiffany's Riding School offers leisurely country rides of varying durations. If walking is your thing there are wonderful coastal walks from Luz to the nearest fishing villages of Burgau and Porto do Mos to the east. The Lagos beach Meia Praia is 4km of hard packed sand and also worth a walk!

The west coast is a fascinating place to visit - especially in a storm - although the windswept Atlantic beaches and dramatic cliffs where windsurfers patiently sit out at sea waiting for the perfect wave can also offer miles of uncrowded and peaceful sand where to soak up the hot summer sun. Sagres, Europe's most south westerly point, also boasts Europe's strongest lighthouse perched on top of sheer 200m high cliffs and the Fort, traditional home of Henry the Navigator, which is now a museum.

A little further afield and inland is the town of Silves which is dominated by a spectacular Moorish castle and fascinating church, both of which are well worth a visit, and no trip to the Algarve is complete without a trip to Monchique to visit the springs, take in the views from Foia at the top of the "mountain" and to sample one of the hundreds of small family-run restaurants on the way.

Towards Faro there are many more wonderful beaches to discover, including Praia da Rocha with its fascinating coastal rocks. There are also many alternative attractions for the family near Albufeira if the beaches don't appeal, including Zoomarine which offers aquariums, sea lion, dolphin and bird shows and has a funfair and swimming pools, Slide-n-Splash for a bonanza of hair-raising water fun, the sand sculpture exhibition which is remodelled with a new theme every year, and Algarve Shopping - a large mall with numerous local and European shops and boutiques, a food hall, cinemas and supermarket for those wanting to stay out of the sun!
