Luazinha has 2 air conditioned bedrooms, an open plan living area and shower room. There is broadband Internet, a TV and DVD for watching films on. The best 'room' in the cottage is the roof terrace. With views over the lagoon and far reaching views of the sea. At night you are showered in stars, which reflect off of the water. Hence the name Luazinha – Little Moon. A gentle stroll along the lagoons edge brings you to a fabulous fish restaurant. There really is no need to venture very far!
There is a dining table off the quaint kitchen area and 2 sofas in the lounge which also has a wood burner for winter sun holidays.
The best 'room' in the cottage is the roof terrace. With views over the lagoon and far reaching views of the sea.
There is also a front terrace where you can sit and watch the world go by, watch the locals picking shell fish in the lagoon and the abundant bird life in the area.
We do hope we have thought of everything to make your stay at Luazinha an experience to be enjoyed over and over again
Get back to nature on your Algarve holiday and explore the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve. Be lucky enough to stay right in the heart of The Ria Formosa at one of our houses. The nature park stretches along most of the Eastern Algarve coastline. It is basically a collection of marshes, salt pans and lagoons forming a barrier from the sea to the land.
It is a big pull for nature lovers and particularly bird watchers, who flock here (pardon the pun) to catch sight of a large variety of birds, many of which use the Ria Formosa as a migratory ground or stop-over in the winter.
In addition to bird watching, it is also a fantastic place to see all types of wildlife, flora and fauna and if you like walking, there are trails to take, so you can enjoy nature at its best. If you want to enjoy all this at higher speeds then there are bikes for hire or perhaps you’d prefer the view from the back of a horse. You could also book a boat trip and enjoy it from the water.
We stayed in this picturesque cottage in a remote and wonderful fishing village in the Algarve. We went with our two daughters, 3 and 2 yrs old. The house was beautiful and comfortable (the girls loved their pink bedroom!!) and the surroundings pure paradise. Was very difficult to leave! Can't wait for our next trip there!
Wir kommen schon viele Jahre an die Ria Formosa und haben diesen schönen Platz entdeckt.
Wir waren ca. 4 Wochen hier und haben die Zeit sehr genossen. Das Haus hat viel Flair und liegt in einer ruhigen, ländlichen Umgebung. Schon vor unserer Ankunft hatten wir eine perfekte Betreuung durch Adele. Als wir ankamen gab es zur Begrüßung eine Flasche Wein und alles war perfekt. Auch der Service vor Ort war sehr gut! Der freundliche Nachbar gegenüber brachte uns frisches Gemüse und die Fischer frische Muscheln. Für uns ist es ein kleines Paradies und wir haben schon für das nächste Jahr gebucht. Wir können es sehr empfehlen!
We've been going for many years at the Ria Formosa and have discovered this beautiful place.
We stayed here 4 weeks and have enjoyed it. The house has a lot of flair and is located in a quiet, rural setting. Even before our arrival, we had a perfect support by Adele. When we arrived there was a welcome bottle of wine and everything was perfect. Also the service was very good! From the friendly neighbor opposite we got fresh vegetables and from the fishermens fresh mussels. It is a little paradise for us and we have already booked for next year. We can really recommend it!
My wife and I have been going to The Algarve for Christmas and New Year for many years now, but always in the Central Region, unfortunately she fell in early November and broke her hip, so the holiday looked a non starter, however she suddenly decided to take the risk and go, so on the spur of the moment I contacted Somewhere Special (Adele) and she offered what she thought was the right option for us and how right she was " Luazinha" so we decided to book it. We arrived late in the evening so we didn't know what to expect as every where was dark. Our arrival was great, good directions from the Airport from Adele brought straight to the place, on arrival we lit the already made up log stove and within a very short time the place was lovely and warm. The next day when we woke up and saw the view, well what a dream come true, we were lucky enough to have sunshine all the stay, but that was a bonus. The cottage was wonderful, with everything you needed (any we cooked every day) so plenty of pots and pans, we even cooked Christmas dinner, the place was lovely and cosy and warm all the time during the cool evenings and nice and cool in the day time. The neighbours were all Portuguese but were very friendly and although they spoke no English, we still managed to have a chat every day. Plenty of logs in the store to keep us going for two and a half weeks and the likes of Lidl and Mondello super markets just a few kilometres away. We will be back again most certainly and next time without the crutches so that we can enjoy the roof terrace as well as the front patio (we did manage the steps to have a look) I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday with nearby beaches and walks ( Oh yes and the local Baker comes every day with his bread and cakes)
What a great view and a beautiful cottage, very tastefully decorated. Everything you could possibly need for your stay was in the house plus a folder with lots of information about the local area including restaurants and beaches. The restaurant along the street was super handy and delicious. A peaceful location. The only thing we missed was a boat / water taxi enabling us to get across the lagoon to the beach on the other side. Surrounding beaches were great. Local hosts were also really helpful if anything went wrong they were immediately available. We would thoroughly recommend it.
The rooms are very clean, and the interieur is really something special.
The terraces in front of the house and on the rooftop are spacious and offer a great view to the sea. The picture are speaking the truth. Nothing to complain at all, and if you early enough talk to Adele (great management), I’m sure, there will be wood for the oven.
Al llegar a destinación, después de buscar durante una hora la dirección exacta ya que no aparece en ningún sitio, tuvimos una gran desilusión. La casa no correspondía a lo descrito en el anuncio, por la agencia de alquiler.
No está enfrente del mar sino de la Ria Formosa; para llegar a la playa hay que recorrer 20/30 minutos en coche; el jardin es un trozo de carretera, de paso para cualquiera y está lleno de hierba alta; internet es de pago y casi no hay cobertura; escasa limpieza en toda la casa; el baño es un aseo; toallas estropeadas y sábanas que eran fundas de edredones; muebles viejos, sin cortinas así que habia que estar con todo cerrado y a oscuras, es decir, ningún tipo de intimidad porque la casa está rodeada de otras muchas; juguetes en los armarios; a pocos metros de la casa estan colocados los bidones de la basura, comunes a todos los habitantes del lugar, y con el calor habia muy mal olor... Eso si, la terraza superior ofrece una vista maravillosa de noche!
Conocemos el Algarve desde hace años y esta ha sido la zona que menos nos ha gustado. No volveremos por allí.
No recomendaríamos la propiedad.
