Villa overview - owner's description

Beach villa with private swimming pool. Located in the prestigious Monte Lemos area. All local amenities easily accessible, only eight minutes walk from the town centre.

Casa Encantadora is located in the prestigious Monte Lemos area of Praia da Luz, approximately fifteen minutes walk from the beach and five to ten minutes walk from many of the restaurants, bars, cafes and shops that the town offers. The villa is set in a walled garden, accessed by security gates and with ample parking space for two or three cars. The property is level with landscaped garden areas and there is a good sized pool with a pool cover to retain the temperature and also an outside shower. Plenty of outside furniture is provided for your enjoyment as is the built in charcoal barbeque area located to one side of the house.
The kitchen, living/dining room and one twin bedroom with an en suite shower room and separate cloakroom are downstairs. The kitchen is large with an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer and washer/dryer together with the usual kettle, toaster, iron and board.

The living area is also large with a dining table to seat six and three 2 seater settees arranged around a coffee table. Patio doors from this room lead out onto the pool terrace. The villa also benefits from under floor heating which, together with the log burner in the sitting room, provides all the comfort needed for the cooler evenings of the winter. Broadband TV , a radio/CD player, DVD and play station with a separate TV are provided. The ground floor bedroom has twin beds with an en suite shower and there is also a separate cloakroom on this floor.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has patio doors leading out onto two terraces, furnished with table and chairs and having good sea views. The bed can be made up as a double or two singles and the en suite bathroom has a bath with shower over. The third bedroom has twin beds, an en suite shower room and patio doors to a small terrace, furnished with chairs, where you can also enjoy a good sea view.

Casa Encantadora makes an ideal location for a holiday at any time of the year. Praia da Luz is also an excellent base from which to discover the rest of the beautiful Western Algarve; the choice of activities and places to visit and explore from this area is exceptional.
The cosmopolitan town of Lagos, which many believe to be the best on the Algarve, is only about 10 minutes drive away. The Marina dominates the river as it opens into the sea and you can choose activities such as deep sea fishing, a dolphin seafari trip and yacht hire. Lagos is an historic town with some city walls and there are several museums and churches worth a visit. This is a working Portuguese town with markets, shops and plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from. The fabulous west coast beaches, where the surfing is renowned, are only 30 minutes drive away and the Monchique hills and the historic old capital of the Algarve, Silves, is an equal distance the other way. A car is not essential for your holiday enjoyment but to gain an appreciation of just what the Western Algarve can offer, a car is recommended.

We had a fabulous stay at Casa Encantadora. The property was exceptional. Well equipped, clean, tidy, and spacious. Only a short walk in to town but the pool area was so comfortable and secluded we didn't feel the need to stray far. Local office was very helpful on arrival and departure. Would highly recommend this property...... Thanks

We have just returned from a lovely stay in this villa. The villa was lovely, very clean and the kitchen had everything you need for a good stay. The hill to the centre was a challenge in the heat but was worth it to have a lovely villa to come back to. The only downside were that the beds were rock hard and very uncomfortable, I notice in the villa review book people have long commented for years but they are still the same and this is reason I would not return as I did not get a decent nights sleep in 11 nights. Apart from that, couldn't fault anything else.

Dear Rosemary
Thank you for your review, it is always good to hear visitors feedback. I am sorry to hear that you found the beds hard, we have had a few comments about this and have added mattress toppers to all the beds to try to accommodate everyone and since doing this we have not received any comment about the firmness of the mattresses until now. Overall we feel that this a personal preference as we have returning visitors that really like the firmness of the beds but I realise that if people are used to a soft mattress then they would find our mattresses too firm. I will of course look again at this when I am next at the villa.

Friends from Bracknell, United Kingdom Jul 2017

We stayed here for a week.
We received a warm welcome by the management company. The villa is lovely, the pictures really don't do it justice.
It's well equipped and only about half a km from a largish supermarket.
We had a great time and would highly recommend this villa and will definitely return.The owner is prompt in responding to any questions that we had.

Family from Deeside, United Kingdom May 2017

We had an excellent holiday at Villa Encantadora. The Villa offered excellent accommodation which was well maintained and very clean this included the swimming pool. Its location was good but the hill leading to the property was a bit of a challenge for the older members of the family but not off putting. Two small negative points were the TV reception was poor so not a relaxing experience to watch telly at the end of the evening .Secondly , considering the very high standard of the property and fittings two of the sunbeds were very scruffy and wobbly as were the parasols.
Nevertheless accommodation to recomend

David, thank you for taking the time to give a review of the villa. I am pleased that you had a good holiday and your feedback and comments are always useful to know from a visitors point of view. Since 2012 when the Astra Satellite in England was removed this meant that most of Europe were unable to view English channels via a Sky satellite and it has been very difficult to get English TV channels that match what we had and the best option available at the moment is via the internet. Unfortunately during busy viewing times there can be some disruption and I am sorry if this was annoying. I am continually trying to find a better solution and will endeavor to do so. All the patio furniture is checked during and at the end of the season and replaced accordingly and I have forwarded your comments onto the management team.
Best wishes

A wonderful villa- perfect for all occasions. Big communial area and fantastic kitchen with all amenities.
Fridge/freezer and washing machine very clean like new. The large bedroom upstairs has a balcony that looks out to the sea and is perfect size for sitting and having breakfast in the morning or wine in the evening.

The pool gets plenty of sun on it during the day so stays relatively warm.

Plenty of near bye shops and restaurants so no need really for a car to travel about - the beach is superb very clean has water sports, and also a professional set up massage area.

The drive has enough space for two cars and can be locked in as the villa is well gated and secure.

The villa owner is very good at responding to any requests as we required renting travel cots and high chairs.
