Golf: The Algarve is well known as a golfers paradise and Vila Margarida makes a great base for a golfing holiday, whether all members of the group are playing or some go off to play whilst the others relax by the pool or play tennis.

There are many excellent courses within a 25 minute drive including Palmares, Penina, Parque da Floresta and the closest , Boavista is only 5 minutes drive from the villa.

Lagos: The beautiful town of Lagos, described by many as the loveliest town on the Algarve with its old Roman walls and narrow windy streets, is a short 10 minute drive away. It has many excellent beaches, a lovely marina and fishing port and great shopping and bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Mant boat trips run from here including dolphin watching and grotto visits. There are also deep sea fishing excursions available. There are lots of lovely pavement cafes and also entertainers and craftsmen selling their wares. At night it has a wonderful atmosphere and the streets are packed with locals and tourists out for a stroll and watching the entertainers.

Other Nearby Attractions: As well as all that Praia da Luz has to offer there are many other nearby activities for those who hire a car or who travel around by taxi or public transport.

There are 2 water slide parks within a 25 minute drive, a marine wildlife park, a large modern shopping centre and a small zoo.

The West coast beaches are huge and really beautiful, with large breakers in most weathers. They are ideal for surfing and several have surf schools and board hire. The closest are about 20 minutes drive. Also to the West is the nautical town of Sagres with some lovely sea-food restaurants and the most South -Westerly point in Europe, Cape St Vincent with its high cliffs, fort and lighthouse..

The ancient Algarve capital of Silves is a 30 minute drive to the East and has a lovely old castle and a restored cork factory which is now a museum. The grounds hold restaurants and in the summer there is often entertainment in the grounds in the evening (look for local adverts)

About Fiona Harris

I love renting Vila Margarida to holdaymakers-nothing is nicer than hearing people's stories of happy holidays on their return home!

Fiona Harris purchased this villa in 2000

Why Fiona Harris chose Luz

We had holidayed in Praia da Luz since we were teenagers and when we were lucky enough to be able to buy a holiday home it was the only place we wanted to buy! Vila Margarida was the ideal villa in the ideal location!

What makes this villa unique

Vila Margarida is ideal because it is so private and yet to close to the beach and all the bars, show and restaurants-the ideal combination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The holiday was fantastic probably the best family holiday we have ever had .

The villa was just perfect…it was better than we had hoped. The views are out of this world and we were spoilt with the choice of where to sit out with all the outdoor living space!



We loved the pool, grounds and had a ball playing tennis.There is no constructive criticism we can give you there is nothing we would have changed, except the last uphill bit on the way back from the beach, with the 3 year old and his spades!



All the people we had contact with at the villa, were welcoming, and friendly, and made our holiday special.

The taxi firm were great and thank you for organising it for us.



We are planning our return trip already.

So a big thank you and please pass on our thanks to everybody else. You have a fab team working for you.Thank you for letting us use your stunning family villa and we will be in touch soon!!



Cheers,



X,X and 3 very happy boys..

Wonderful stay, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week, we were a family of 4 with two small children, a friend and her child, and a couple, so 9 people in total. There was plenty of private space for all of us, we all had our own private bathrooms and the bedrooms are all large and spacious.

The outside kitchen is great! we sat here often having a drink and nibbles, we also made use of the BBQ.

The pool once heated was lovely and warm, the children loved playing in the pool and also loved the Tennis court.

The hill climb back to the villa was fairly short but could be hard work for people that are older.

The views are amazing, and can been seen where ever you are in the villa from the front balcony, to the side area which is more cosy, to the kitchen.

The front room is very large, and the movie selection was great! the children made use of this when they were tired, or waiting for us to get ready before we set off for the night to one of the wonderful restaurants.

Luz itself is stunning! The beach is clean and the sea turquoise. the views were breathtaking. White villas and apartments covered in beautiful flowers. All the restaurants we ate in were lovely, and if you like Indian food Saffon's is amazing!

We did two trips from the beach, one to see the Dolphins, we were lucky enough to see a pod of 40 dolphins which was a highlight of the holiday. We also went to see the caves which was a lovely boat trip!

All in all it was a wonderful holiday and we didn't want to leave! 11 out of 10, we had an amazing holiday, in a beautiful location in a wonderful villa! We will back for sure!

Great villa for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful villa in a great location. The villa is very spacious so that everyone can have their own space. Within easy walking distance of the village with supermarkets, bars and restaurants. The agent is very quick to answer any questions you might have.

I would recommend this villa without reservations.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

First time on holiday with the Grandchildren and children staying in a villa!

The flexibilty of the rooms and bathrooms was excellent and the facilities, equipment and standard of accommodation was superb!

The owner was extremely helpful throughout the process and even organised our transfers.

The cleaner, gardener and pool cleaner were polite and courteous as were the staff at the local shops.

Every one of us said we would love to come back here if we are lucky enough to get the chance!

The overall proerty was excellent. The villa is spacious and well laid out. a beautiful property.

  • 4 of 5

Very impressive property. The villa itself was well kept and laid out well. We had 7 people and it never felt crowded. The maid and property manager were excellent and helpful.. The weather was poor while we were there so we didn't take advantage of a beautiful grounds and pool area but it looked great A great view from the upstairs balcony of the town and the ocean. On the sunny mornings that we did have it was a treat to sit on the balcony listening to the birds and looking at the view. Every thing is within walking distance with 2 close grocery stores and lots of eating places. The ocean walkway is also a close walk. Its abit difficult to find the first time ( try get there in day light ) and you have to be careful when driving out of the driveway but overall the place was great

Fantastic villa, location and weather

  • 5 of 5

A+++!

We enjoyed a one week stay at Vila Margarida and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The villa was clean and warm. The management team were helpful. The pool was perfect for adults and kids (though definitely get the pool heater on if you go out of season). Praia da Luz was it's usual charming, laid-back self and we were lucky enough to enjoy a few days on the beach thanks to unseasonably high temperatures.

Praia da Luz has a lovely sandy beach which is gently shelving & great for families. It is backed by a car free, palm tree lined promenade which has several bars, cafes & shops. Great for a snack lunch or tea & those beach essentials!!! There is a water sports facility on the beach with pedalos, windsurfers, small dingy’s to hire as well as waterskiing & towed inflatable rides. There is also beach volleyball & some children’s swings.

Praia da Luz also offers a wide range of restaurants & bars. The restaurants range from the beach bars and cafes, through small bistro type restaurants to fine dining. All are family friendly.

The bars again welcome families & some run quiz nights & karaoke nights on a regular basis which can be great fun. There are several bars which show UK sports. All of these plus internet cafe, supermarket, chemist are within 8 min walk.
