Overview

About the property

Fantastic location close to shops, bars and amenities. All bedrooms en suite

Villa Laranja is an exceptional, modern villa with stunning sea views in the beautiful family resort of Praia da Luz. It has the luxury of being approximately a 15 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) from the beach and the town's many bars and restaurants. However, the villa still retains a high degree of privacy by being situated in a quiet residential cul-de-sac. Situated on the ground floor is the fully fitted kitchen. This leads through to the stunning circular dining room which follows into the spacious, open and well appointed lounge. Two sets of large French doors open up onto the terrace and private pool area and offers wonderful views of the town and coastline. The lounge has three large leather sofas, 42' big screen TV, Apple TV, iPod dock, Freeview internet TV, DVD / CD player, Wii and PS3. There is also a real log burning stove should the evenings get chilly! The villa and heated pool have fabulous sea views and there is a permanent brick built BBQ. The pool has steps suitable for kids.

There is a small children’s playground just 30 seconds walk from the villa.

Free Wi-Fi available.

About Villa Laranja: This is an ideal luxury base for any group of golfers & non- golfers alike as it can accommodate up to 15 adults, has outstanding sea views & is within close proximity to both Praia da Luz & the lovely fishing village of Burgau for great restaurants, pubs, etc. The beautiful old town of Lagos is also very close.

For special occasions we can organise champagne, birthday cakes, spa days at the villa - you name it and we can try to help!!

There is a live Praia-da-Luz ‘beach-cam’ which you can access using the following link: http://beachcam.meo.pt/livecams/praia-da-luz/

About Karen Athill

We are the Athill family. Villa Laranja is our only holiday rental property and it is a labour of love. We have had many family holidays with large groups of friends so we have tried to create an environment that considers all of the experiences we have had on our previous holidays. We've tried to add all of the little touches that make a group holiday just that little bit more special. We hope you enjoy staying at our beautiful villa.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about this beautiful villa! We were a party of 8 adults, (4 couples) from Canada. Each couple had their own private full bathroom and balcony off of each bedroom. There is so much privacy & we never felt crowded. The beds are comfortable and the villa is very clean. The pool is beautiful and heated perfectly. The outdoor area for eating is wonderful and is covered so you can enjoy breakfast or dinner in the shade. We used the brick fireplace every evening - It's wonderful. There are plenty of dishes, and cooking utensils, along with a few spices and sauces. The kitchen is nice and large which allows for more than one chef. The nearby beach is an easy 15-20 minute walk, and is stunning. We hiked all along the coastal cliff to Lagos (4 hours) from the beach. What a highlight that was. If I ever return to the Algarve with a group I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The management company was pleasant; I called once to ask a question, and they were very helpful. You will not be disappointed here. Feel free to ask me any questions. Thank you again Karen & Richard for a wonderful week.

Great villa in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of four families looking for somewhere spacious and accommodating for all our needs, and Villa Laranja was perfect.

We had a great stay here. The pool heating was ideal for the kids to spend hours upon hours playing in the sun whilst keeping cool. The surrounding options of sunbeds and chairs was great for anyone choosing to be outdoors and wanting to relax too. Some good shade in the corner also, for those who aren't sun worshipers!

Bedrooms were spacious and the numerous en-suites made a morning rush for a shower unnecessary!

Lovely views from many parts of the villa, especially the bedrooms upstairs with the spacious balcony and additional seating area.

A 15 minute stroll into quaint Luz (downhill) and you will find plenty of nice restaurants to dine at. Didn't seem to be many late bars open though. One or two maybe, but I suppose that's what keeps it nice!

Overall, a great stay and would definitely visit Luz and Villa Laranja again.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 14 friends in Villa Laranja and were not disappointed. Booking, payment and checking in and out was very smooth. There is plenty of room, even for 14 guests, with separate bathrooms for each bedroom and big social areas. We also enjoyed the grill outside which is perfect for a evening barbecue. :)

We had pretty cold weather during our stay so the heated pool was worth the extra cost.

The only negative would be that the wi-fi in the villa only worked downstairs.. sometimes.

Would definitely recommend staying at this villa!

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Villa which is exactly as it looks on the site. Fully equipped with everything you need to make it feel like a real home from home. Outstanding outside pool and area which was perfect for all 12 of us to chill and eat outside. We will definitely be back. Many thanks to owner Karen for all her help with the booking details.

Out family holiday 5 - 19 May 2018

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group with Grandparents, Mums and Dads, Aunt and Uncles and four children ages 4, 3, 3, and 1. The one year old celebrated his 1st birthday at Villa Laranja! The villa was perfect for all our needs, was well equipped and very stylish. We appreciated that all family groups had their own en-suite bathrooms. The heated pool was used for hours each day and the children didn't want to leave the villa. Quite a number of toys and inflatables were also available in the garage. We enjoyed many of the restaurants on our visits to Luz, Bergau and Lagos but also enjoyed many family meals, take-aways and barbeques outside around the pool.

We had a issue with one of the beds during our stay but the management agency promptly responded and fixed the problem. The outside parasols could also do with now being replaced with new ones - but these were minor issues. We all enjoyed our stay at the villa enormously and would certainly like to return...

Owner's Response: Dear Maurice, Thank you so much for your kind review. I’m very glad you enjoyed the pool and ‘happy birthday’ to your grandson! We don’t supply parasols at the villa, which is why we had the large sunsail shade installed. Unfortunately the gorgeous Algarve breeze is very strong and parasols get left out by guests, get damaged and blown around, and will often cause damage too when they fly off. I think the parasols you refer to must be old ones which should have been disposed off. I will address this so thank you for raising. We very much hope you and your family stay at the villa again in the future. Best wishes Karen

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is large and has plenty of living space, the furniture is of a good quality and in good condition. We were a group of 8 male golfers visiting in March and unusually for Portugal it rained all week so we had little chance to use the outside area - but the pool looked nice. The only criticism from some of our group were that mattresses were not substantial enough for grown men on a few beds. Mainly the single beds. In summary a very good villa and I would definitely stay there again.

Praia Da Luz
Car: not necessary

Praia da Luz is a lovely family orientated resort towards the quieter Western end of the Algarve coast. The beach is long and sandy and backed by a beautiful palm tree lined promenade. It has numerous restaurants, bars and shops. The larger town of Lagos is only a 10-minute drive away and this has a more cosmopolitan night-life along with a lovely marina, loads more restaurants and shops and several sandy beaches. The Algarve is famous for its fabulous golf courses and the closest are Boavista and Parque da floresta which are both a 5-10 min drive. As Villa Laranja is so close to all these amenities car hire is not essential although we would recommend it to allow exploration of the lovely Algarve coastline, mountains and towns. Villa Laranja is situated at the top of a hill so a car would be necessary for the elderly, small children or less mobile people.

Golf: Boavista golf course is very close to our villa, this is the newest & much praised course situated only 2km from the villa or 5 minute drive. It has other facilities there i.e. tennis, indoor pool & a spa. Also we are within a 20 min drive to 'Parque da Floresta' golf course, which also has extra facilities open to all i.e. tennis, lawn bowls, archery & a spa. The same distance is the 'Palmaras' golf course, to the East of Lagos, which is very picturesque & has 5 unique links holes along the dunes of Meia Praia beach & then there is the championship 'Penina' golf course which is approx. a 25 min drive away, as are the 3 courses at Silves. All the other courses around Quinta da Lago, Vale do Lobo & Villamoura are also very accessible (all within a 45 min. easy drive) now that there is the very convenient A22 motorway.

Please note - If you are using Google Earth to get a better idea of the villa and it's surroundings the current images shown are from 2006/7. The building site to the West was completely finished around 2009 including the introduction of a small playground just 30 seconds walk from the villa.
