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.

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.

This is our third stay at this villa and as usual we had s lovely trouble free time
We feel very at home at this villa and settle in immediately
Only thing to possibly mention is some of the furnishings are looking a little tired i.e. Faded pictures, lamp shades and curtains not hanging correctly.
Did these things spoil the holiday? No! We still had a fantastic time but feel these things could be addressed to keep the villa top notch. Paula,rental manager, was efficient and friendly as usual

Janice, thank you for your review, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at the villa. I have already got some replacement lamp shades for next year and the faded pictures are also due to be replaced next year. I am over in October and will have a look at the curtains and put them right. Your feedback and comments are always useful from a visitors point of view.
Many thanks and best wishes

Spent 7 days in August with my husband, 2 teenagers and my bother in law and his wife. Everyone has their own bed rooms and spacius living area to spent time in together. Beautiful villa with swimming pool.

On top of that we have plenty space for storage, and additional toilet for guess. The house is gated and had outside lights including swimming pool light for those who wants to enjoy the pool in the night.

Location is only 10 minutes walk to the Luz beach.

Check in and out is easy.. Paula help us with the check in. Prior to arrival I've contacted Grace the owner and she always happy to answer.

We had a lovely time. Thank you Grace and Paula.

Andrew/Retno thank you for your review, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the villa.

A lovely villa which is very well equipped. The communication with the owner beforehand was excellent. Maid and pool service very good. The situation is ideal for the beach and local restaurants in the lovely town of Priai de Luz.
We all thought that the beds were very hard and did not sleep too well. The patio furniture is not of good quality and cuts into your legs if you don't put a towel on the chairs. The pool was dirty and full of foliage and some rubbish on the day we arrived which was disappointing. We would have rated this property a 5 if it were not for these three things
Management company did not know where the safe was and were not in touch when we left so we just left the key inside the property.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you found the beds hard; the beds are firm and I am aware that this does not suit everybody but judging from the reviews most visitors are happy with them. The management team have recently had to replace the patio furniture as there was a couple of breakages at the beginning of the season, they were asked to replace the chairs with similar to the previous chairs which were comfortable. I will check the comfort level of these new chairs and replace if necessary. You said that you found the pool service good, the pool is cleaned twice a week in high season, from your comments I assume that the previous visitors did not put the pool cover on as this helps to prevent any leaves being blown into the pool. I have spoken to Paula at the villa management team about your feedback and she says that when she shows visitors into the villa at the beginning of their stay she tells them where the safe is situated and she also gives information to the visitors which includes where to find the safe. At the same time Paula also gives instructions to visitors about what to do and where to leave the key if they have an early departure but if this has been forgotten at the end of your stay it is always best to call into the management office (5 mins walk away from the villa) or telephone her to find out. I very much appreciate your positive comments.

Family from Aldridge Walsall, United Kingdom Sep 2015

Just returned from a week's stay in Casa Encantadora. The villa is beautiful. Three large bedrooms,all with their own en-suites. The master was huge with two lovely balconies. The six of us never felt on top of each other all week. It was equipped with everything that we needed for our stay and much more! (Even egg cups-see a previous review😀) Lovely pool, with a shallow end for non-swimmers and 6 sun loungers. It was very clean on arrival and maids arrived mid stay to change our towels and gave a mini clean. The pool was also serviced once during our stay.
Booking was an easy process from start to finish and we were met at the property on arrival by a friendly manager Paula. She also suggested car hire firms to us before our holiday.
The villa is in a position that's an easy walk above the beach 10-15 mins slow stroll and catches the breezes, hence we didn't need the air-con.
A lovely holiday was had by all and we can certainly recommend this villa.
Thank you!
