Very nice villa, great location, helpful friendly owners.
My family and I very much enjoyed staying at Casa Canda.
Location:– Excellent - about 5 minutes wander from the waterfront promenade, beach and restaurants. Directly across the road from a small but very good supermarket with all you could need plus coffee/icecream shop.
Villa: Very nice, good size rooms, plenty of space and cupboards etc. Nice and clean on arrival and cleaner popped in twice a week changing sheets mid stay.
Fully equipped kitchen with everything you could need bar food ! Beds in twin room very good. My partner and I did find the master bedroom double rather soft, it might be that mattress has seen better days, I did actually choose to sleep on one of the fold out sofa chairs for most of the holiday in the end, which was fine and I slept well, leaving her to sleep better.
Pool: excellent, clean, pool guy popped by every few days and tested, topped up etc. Bridge showing a little aging now, one plank coming loose but perfectly fine for fooling about with the kids !
Other: – parking great, nice to have an external tap on driveway for rinsing sandy feet etc , good wifi throughout, good selection of TV channels on a 32” TV on wall (better than pics shown), dryer to hang washing on, nice table and chairs on balcony and loungers on pool patio.
Luz itself has a nice beach, great watersports hire (kids loved it), nice full range of restaurants with great food at decent prices. Lagos 10 mins, water parks 30, airport ~1hr.
Communication: Chris and Ann were very quick in all communications, very helpful information both before departure and at the villa too.
We may be tempted to return!
Very comfortable and great location
We had a lovely week. The villa has everything you could need and is in a great location. Can’t wait to visit again.
Another great few days in Luz
We've been visiting Luz for over 10 years and it never disappoints, in fact it gets better every year. Casa Canda is a great place to stay right in the centre and withing walking distance of everything we needed. Thoroughly recommended
Perfect location in the centre of Luz. Supermarket 2 minutes walk away, close to all restaurants and bars.
The property itself was very clean and comfortable we loved it. Very comfortable beds and a lovely swimming pool and terrace.
5 Star Accomodation
Case Canda is a delightful holiday cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It’s very well equipped with everything you need, the decor is very tasteful and it’s very clean. The British tv and free WiFi are a real bonus. Sadly we didn’t get to use the pool at the end of November, as the water was too cold, but we’d like to come back again earlier in the year to get the benefit of it. The location of the property is perfect; it’s in a quiet neighbourhood and the supermarket couldn’t be any handier, as it’s literally just around the corner! The beach and main centre are very short walk away. Luz itself is a super resort, as it has all the shops and restaurants you need, and it’s a very charming and peaceful town suitable for families and couples. I would highly recommend Casa Canda and thank you to Chris and Anne for all the clear instructions sent in advance.
Thank you Nikki. You and your family were perfect guests. We try our utmost to make every guests’ holiday perfect and for Casa Canda to be a real home from home. Best wishes to all. Chris and Ann
A little gem of a find

Thank you for your review. We love our cottage and we want all our guests to feel that it is home from home. Thanks once again
The glorious sandy beach of Praia da Luz is a 5 minute, 250m stroll away. Very safe for children, with the added attraction of rockpools at one end of the beach. In season, water sports are available, including banana rides, windsurfing and pedalos. There are also a number of horse riding centres in the Luz area, which cater for all ages and levels of skill.
Faro airport is approx. 55 min. drive with hire cars and taxis available. A new section of motorway(A22) opened in June 2003 connecting Faro to Lagos. Junction 1 is just 5 kms from the Cottage. Alternatively regular trains run between Faro and Lagos. The Cottage is just a 10 min. taxi from the train station at Lagos.
A car is not required but can be rented in the village for day trips to explore the Algarve. There is car parking available for guests at the rear of the Cottage.
The Cottage is well situated in the village of Praia da Luz - in a convenient location suitable for a family, beach, golf or walking holiday. The nearby resort of Parque de Floresta offers squash, archery, riding, a gym and a beauty salon. There are riding stables at Almadena offering rides in the unspoilt countryside. The market and fishing town of Lagos, with harbour, new marina, markets, restaurants and shops is only 5 km.
Praia da Luz has surprising facilities for a village. There are lots of restaurants, catering for all tastes, as well as bars, banks, post office, and even a cinema. Several supermarkets are tucked away in the back streets. The largest (Baptista) is close at hand. There is a 24 hour medical facility as well as dentists.
