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

Fabulous villa and pool for a great time away.

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and clean and sumptuously decorated. Great pool area and comfy sun loungers. Large outside table to accommodate us all and a great upstairs terrace with fabulous views of the sea. The local supermarket delivers and when we did venture out to eat we were not disappointed with local restaurants either. We were a group of friends for a long weekend away and really enjoyed our stay.

What a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is immaculate. Tastefully decorated, loads of room with everything you need. The pool is a perfect size with an excellent shaded area. The sun terrace on the top floor was perfect for early evening cocktails watching the sun set.

We had the perfect holiday and cannot wait to revisit!

Absolutely beautiful villa - we were a group of 10 on a hen party. It was perfect in everyway - well equipped with everything we needed.

We had the most amazing time (despite the weather!) I will definitely be returning.

Beautiful well-placed villa and pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very well kitted out, clean and tidy with all we needed for our week's holiday. The kids loved the range of inflatables and us adults loved the entertaining space and facilities (outside bbq and dining area were great). Loved the individually themed bedrooms and that each bedroom had its own ensuite. Lovely area, enjoyed daily walks to the beach and the beachfront shops and restaurants. We enjoyed sunny days around the pool which was a great temperature. Our host arranged daily clean and tidy service at our request and expense which was fantastic and recommended a chef service on request too. We would highly recommend this property and location for its beaches, restaurants and places of interest. We can't wait to return!!

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!

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.
