Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à Lagos, dans cette belle maison spacieuse et aménagée avec goût. Cadre et environnement idyllique avec vue surl
We spent 5 days with my familiy and the house was very fine: It is clean, complete, with all needed accesories and the garden and swiming pool was wonderful!. The children liked it and we had beautiful days there with an spectacular view of the sea!! We will recomend it for sure!.
Thank you for a great 2 week stay in your house in Praia da Luz. The house is in great "shape" and it was perfect for us as a family (2 adults and 2 children). We enjoyed both the local town and the surroundings. We enjoyed especial daytrips by car visiting several great beaches west of Praia da Luz. We would also recommend the Italian restaurant 5 minutes walking distance just down the road towards the town.

We arrived and received lovely support from Clara who looks after the property.
Aside from the toaster which could be improved our stay was fantastic. The accommodation is excellent and our girls who are 3 and 5 loved the pool. They were in it all day.
Kitchen and living areas is spacious with 3 bathrooms it really is an great accommodation. The main photo is very representative of the property.
The beach is a 10 minute walk down the hill and 20 minute walk back up it. The beach in Luz is great. However we actually preferred the beach bergau which was a 5-10 min drive or 1 hour coastal walk with fantastic views.
I thoroughly recommend this villa to stay. We had a great time.
The villa is 10 min walk from the promenade and lovely sandy beach of Praia de Luz, one of the best beaches in the Algarve. There is a wide range of leisure activities e.g. water sport activities, beachside cafes & bars, through small bistro type restaurants to fine dining (fresh fish). Very safe for children with added attraction of rock pools at one hand of the beach, plus a beach-front restaurant, completed with children’s play area makes it a great place for all the family! Water Parks, Surfing, sailing, fishing and scuba-diving trips can be booked for departure from Luz or nearby Lagos, next to the remarkable Marina. The beautiful rolling hills and spring of Monchique worth a visit, and so is Foia, the highest point in the Algarve, with spectacular views all the way to the sea! There is also a historic fortress at Cap St Vincent, Europe's most south westerly point. West Coast is ideal for Surfing Pros.
Other Activities: Wonderful cliff walks to the East towards Ponta da Piedade and to the West to the Atlantic Ocean unexplored Coast
Golf: Golfers flock to the Algarve all year round due to the mild winter climate, spectacular scenery and the manicured fairways and greens of many world class courses.
