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.

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!!

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.

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.

Karen Athill purchased this villa in 2005

A perfect stay in an outstanding villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely outstanding stay in Villa Laranja, which caters for all the needs you could possibly have. The nearby small town of Luz is picturesque and has quite a few small and delightful restaurants and also contains the daily shopping that you might need. The neighbourhood at Quinta la Bela Vista is very classy and calm, you find your holiday mood there at once. Everything was also very convinient when it comes to our contact with Karen and everything was to our satisfaction. We would like to stay here on many more occasions, we loved it a lot!

Wonderfull week!

  • 5 of 5

We were 8 friends from France and chose this magnificent villa to spend the new year. We were very lucky because the weather was great all the week so we could enjoy the heated pool every day.

The villa is gorgeous and corresponds exactly to the photos available on the site. It is a completely equipped luxury villa, a beautiful decoration and very clean. The sea view since the villa is beautifull. The people from the management agency were very reactive to our requests so we had a wonderfull week. We hope to return there soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I'd like to say we arranged for the weather to be nice for you but clearly we can't claim to have control over that aspect! :) We are so glad everything else was to your liking though. Please do come and stay at the villa again! With best wishes Karen

Holiday in Villa Laranja

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Villa Laranja and enjoyed the neighbourhood a lot! Our group was a family in three generations: mom+dad, 3 siblings+their spouses, 2 little boys/grandchildren/nieces. The clean and elegant villa worked perfectly to our family and it was as described in the pictures. We found all the praising comments written here justified. The small town of Praia da Luz and the Algarve area in all is a very nice destination with its cities, activities, nature and weather.

An amazing villa with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing family holiday. All bedrooms and were furnished to a high standard with a well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. Wonderful view from the terrace and easy access to the nearby resort. We will be back!

What a fantastic holiday with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally do reviews but I had to write to say that this villa is just excellent. We travelled with friends and family and could immediately see that the owners have spent a lot of time and money updating all the rooms and pool area in the villa very recently as it looks brand new!! The views are fantastic from the patio/pool and most of the rooms have a sea view too.

If you have a large group of people you can do no better than to stay at this villa.

Stunning Villa Villa @ Quinta Da Bela Vista Luz

  • 5 of 5

Doreen & I had a wonderful week staying at Villa (wish it had been longer as the weather was fantastic) during the 3rd week in June 2016. The Villa is superb, very clean and has several on suite bedrooms. All the white goods are provided and best of all, a gas cooker!

Although too big for two us we like space & a nice pool and this has an abundance of both which suited us. The Villa looks stunning all round with fantastic views overlooking Luz & the sea can be seen from the poolside & even more so from the full balcony above. The master bedroom has superb quality and comfortable outside furniture on the balcony where we enjoyed drinks while the sun went down. Massive hit that one.

It is located almost at the top of the hill in Luz approximately 20 mins walk, at a stroll. We hired a car from Faro which we used mostly due to handling of groceries etc. (and my beer!)

I would like to thank Karen (owner) for her very responsive communication during the whole process and we will not hesitate to stay here again in the very near future.

Defo 10 out of 10

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.
