About the property

Villa in Montinhos da Luz, Praia Da Luz, Western Algarve - Quiet private Location, 20 Minutes Walk To The Beach and town or few minutes drive.

Beautiful villa in the lovely family resort, Praia da Luz.A traditional property with loads of character and space but with the advantage of having been fully modernised to a very high standard. It has the luxury of being only a 20 mins walk or 2 mins drive from the beach, most shops and restaurants. However, it still retains a very high degree of privacy being positioned in a 'no-through' road in a residential area. The villa and heated pool have fabulous sea views. Next to the pool is a large covered BBQ, dining area which stays wonderfully cool in the heat of the day. Praia da Luz is a lovely family orientated resort towards the quieter western end of the Algarve coast. It has numerous restaurants, bars and shops. The larger town of Lagos is only 10 mins drive away. This has a cosmopolitan nightlife, lovely marina, loads more restaurants, shops and several sandy beaches. Casa Crisdell is so close to many amenities, car hire is not essential but with children or elderly recommended. The western coast surfing beaches are only 30 minutes away where lessons are run. Our villa offers wifi and sky.AL

About sue barratt & Mike Barratt

My husband and I live near Oxford and have 2 daughters aged 10 and 15 and a selection of ducks, ponies and cats! We have been holidaying in the Algarve for quite a few years now.

sue barratt & Mike Barratt purchased this villa in 2005

Why sue barratt & Mike Barratt chose Luz

We had been on holiday a few times to Luz and fell in love with the weather, relaxed family atmosphere and beautiful beach which the kids just love. There are amazing rock pools as well as the lovely sandy beach and plenty of other beaches to explore in the area. The food is great and so fresh and there are lots of local restaurants that we love to go to. My husband especially loves the golf and plays whenever we are out and also goes out for golfing weekends with his friends - there are several golf courses within really easy reach. Also the locals are so friendly and welcoming.

What makes this villa unique

Well the pool is probably the thing the children would say they love the most. It is a lovely size with steps into it so they can play safely even when tiny and it can be heated which means they never want to get out. It is also beautifully private and with lovely sea views and the loungers and BBQ area are right there so it is just so easy. I would say I love the pool fridge for the sangria! Our villa is in a lovely private and quiet spot but still close to all the amenities that Luz has to offer, there is even a bar literally 1 minute walk away if you fancy an easy change of scene!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Just wanted to say we had a fabulous holiday and the weather could not have been better. Your villa is lovely the best we have ever stayed in. We are hoping to book for next Easter. I am so glad I found your site. Thank you.'

'We had a great holiday thank you very much! Your villa is just wonderful and the views are stunning. It is one of the best villas we have ever stayed in and the outside kitchen was just perfect for us. In addition, we would like to mention Rosemary Reynolds Villa Management Company and their efficient service. Last but by no means least, we would also like to thank Filomena - she is just a star! She and her husband babysat for us one night and the girls had a great time.'

'We had a really lovely holiday, all the family and myself thought your villa was fantastic we will always remember it.

We are nearly down to earth now. Thanks again and we hope you have many happy holidays there yourselves.''Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the villa.

Happy Family stay

  • 4 of 5

Well presented and stocked villa. Good pool area, with bar-be-que and covered area for shade. Plenty of sun beds and parasol. Also enjoyed table tennis table. Cleaned twice during the week. The only criticism for us would be walk to shop and beach when you stay without a car which took us 25 minutes. We are probably slower than other folk as we have small children.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your holiday in our villa and the amenities were as you were expecting. I am sorry that you found the walk into town a little far - we do say it is a 20 minute walk and a car is recommended but I do appreciated with little ones it may take a few more minutes. Most of our guests like to have a walk into town for dinner and back again but there are taxi's easily available in Luz if it is a bit much with young children. We hope to welcome you again. Kindest regards Sue & Mike
