House overview - owner's description

AIR CONDITIONED, TOWN HOUSE. Set in beautiful, secure quiet gardens, with a magnificent weir pool. An excellent 2 bedroom townhouse, within walking distance of the beach, bars, shops and restaurants.

“This property is fully licensed and registered with the Tourist Board of Portugal and is compliant with Portuguese laws relating to holiday rentals. Licence number 9707/AL”

"Journeys End", is located in the prestigious Monte Lemos area of Praia da Luz, in a crescent of 14 houses set in beautiful mature, landscaped gardens with colourful planting and lawned areas. The magnificent weir pool is the central feature of these gardens. The living accommodation is on the first floor to take advantage of the views to gardens and the sea beyond. The living room patio doors open onto a south facing balcony with outside dining furniture. Along with Air Conditioning the room is furnished with a three piece suite. Satellite TV & DVD player and a log burner which makes this house a ideal base for an out of season stay. There is small cloakroom and a modern dining kitchen with full cooker, fridge freezer, microwave and washing machine. The kitchen is well equipped with small appliances, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. Another small balcony, which looks inland, leads off the kitchen. Downstairs there are two bedrooms, one with twin beds and the second with a double bed and air conditioning. Both bedrooms have built in wardrobes. A door from the double room opens onto a small terrace, which leads into the gardens and the pool area. There are plenty of sun loungers for relaxing on and the entire garden area is fenced and gated making this a particularly suitable location for families with young children. Everything you could want is within a 5 minute drive or a 10-15 minute walk. There is a good local supermarket, plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars and a large sandy beach with water sport facilities, all within walking distance. Several golf courses, such as Boavista, Parque da Floresta and Palmares are within a 10 to 30 minutes drive.
The cosmopolitan town of Lagos, which many believe to be the best on the Algarve, is only 10 minutes drive away. There 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 still standing after the earthquake of 1755 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 but we really would recommend that you have one so that you can take full advantage of this wonderful area.
"Journey's End" and Praia da Luz really are the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area and enjoy your holiday in the sun, or winter.

Family from Sydney, Australia Nov 2014

Just what we required, a great relaxing time, everything as promised.

Couple from Greenwich, Australia Jun 2014

Clean, comfortable and well located. A car is must have for this property. Good for a romantic week for couple or for small family. A bit too small for two couples. The kitchen was good. Even the espresso coffee machine was the same as I have at home.

From 1186vc Amstelveen, Netherlands Sep 2009

We and our friends had a fantastic holiday from the 26th of September till the 6th of October.
The house was very complete and it felt like
home immediately. Because we had such beautiful weather, we could have breakfast every morning on
the very nice balcony overlooking the gorgeous garden and swimmingpool. The description of the house was very accurate and did meet all our expectations. We enjoyed the beach, the food, the
dolphin boattrip, Lagos, Sagres and much more.
We would certainly recommend your house to our friends and we hope to be back soon.
Thank you again.
Kindest regards,
Dick and Rineke and

This property in my opinion was excellent in all areas.
Everything is close and easy walking distance.
The pool is clean and quiet so very relaxing during the day or enjoying the evening on the balcony.

From Frinton On Sea, United Kingdom Feb 2009

February 2009

I had a loverly week, the owners have catered for all, young and old alike. I am a lady of 80+ years. Even in late winter, it was warm during the day but got a bit chilly in the evening but the house was very warm and cosy. Most days I sat out in the garden and read my book. It did surprise me that most bars and eateries were open, particulaly liked the Lazuli bar for a midday snack and the Adaga da Marina in Lagos for an evening meal that was very good and very reasonable. I ate very well, with wine for 10 euros. I have to say that the owners were extremely helpful, they helped with everything, nothing was too much trouble. As for Chris their manager, if only I was younger, he was so helpful. Thank you Roger and Margaret for a wonderful week, you have succeeded in making a home from home, not sure you could have thought of anything else. I will certainly be back next year, if not sooner.

23rd Sept to 7th October 2008

Just returned from one of the best holidays ever. The peaceful resort of Praia da Luz is thoroughly recommended if you need a relaxing holiday. We found the local people friendly and helpful.

The house was well maintained and comfortably furnished, it lacked nothing from the air-conditioning to the stock of DVDs and games to watch and play on the very rare wet day. The gardens and large pool are of a very high standard and beautifully clean. Compared to other properties we looked at it was very good value for money. It exceeded our expectations and the pictures on the website did not do it justice.

The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need to cook the most sophisticated meal, or you can eat out at dozens of restaurants and bars down near the beach which serve every kind of food that you might fancy from English, Indian, Chinese and African. There is even an English and Irish pub.

The beach itself is beautiful, overlooked by the Black Rock and surrounded by blue sea. Sit at an outside café, watch the many water sports, or just enjoy the sunshine.

Lagos was well worth a visit with its busy marina and shops - an opportunity for rides to watch dolphins or deep sea fishing.

The small surrounding villages were also very beautiful.

Finally, the English manager Chris was worth his weight in gold - especially when we locked ourselves out. It was very reassuring knowing we could phone a number and speak to a fellow Englishman.

All in all the perfect holiday.

Peter & Sheila, Great Holland, Essex

Reply from Roger

Peter & Sheila, thanks very much for your super review, comments like that make all our efforts worthwhile. We said you would have a good holiday and it appears that is what you had. Look forward to your return visit. Remember Luz is a fantastic place to stay in the winter months and we always treat returning guests favourably during the off season. Kind regards Roger & Margaret

- "Felt like a home frome home" "My family and I have just come back from a fantastic 10 day holiday in Luz. This was the second time we have used this apartment, so a second visit speaks for its self. The apartment was easy to find using the directions given. When we arrived we found the apartment was even more homely and more equipped than on our last visit. We found the property very clean. The pool and garden area was very well maintained and most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. The information in the apartment informing us the best restaurants, attractions and beaches to visit made our holiday even better. We would highly recommend this apartment to our friends. We are looking forward to our third visit next year."

This was our first time in Portugal and what a welcome this was. Upon arival, on one of the hottest days in the history of the world, what better way to refresh than a nice cool drink with ready made ice-cubes from the freezer or perhaps a lovely coffee made with freshly ground beans from the Bean-to-Cup coffee maker? To say that this apartment is well equipt would be an understatement, its not a case of seeing what it has got but more try to find something it hasnt! From start to finish this apartment made our holiday the most enjoyable to date and delivered on every aspect. It didnt have the usual clinical and sterile feel of many units or hotels but a very homely one that made you comfortable as soon as you set foot through the door. The shared grounds and pool area were excellently maintained and beautifuly landscaped and the pool itself was perhaps one the most interesting ive seen. Chris the property manger was a very pleasant English fellow and was on hand to answer any questions we had both about the property and the local area. We only tried a few of the local eateries and bars, which were all excellent, we bought groceries from the local supermarkets (SPAR and Baptista) which both stock a great selec tion of both local and british products. The beach, although busy, was very pleasant with lots of activities available (pedalos and other watersports). On the whole it as the apartment and pool that made it for us and was where we spent most of our time, it was a home away from home and I would recomend it to anyone anyday. Many thanks to Roger & Mac, we wil be back for sure!

Our 4th time here ,now almost home from home,!One our favourite places.Very quite yet within easy reach of Algarve best atttractions,The air conditioning a boon in August!

Family Holiday Ang/Kev Essex, England.Date Submitted: March 11, 2008 Date of Stay: June 2007 Wonderful family holiday. The villa was clean, well equipped and extremely spacious for the four of us. We felt at home straight away, apart from the weather of course! We all enjoyed the pool (very inviting) and the surrounding gardens were beautiful. A lovely place to relax. There was a large supermarket in Lagos to get the big shop, and a smaller one in Luz for the everyday items, including fresh baked bread. Some lovely restaurants in Luz aswel. The waiters very friendly and loved the children. Lots to do in surrounding area for the whole family, good idea to hire a car. There were two water parks not far from villa, Splash & Slide and Aqualand. We preferred Aqualand because the staff seemed more on the ball and friendlier. There was also a Marine Zoo, but we found that more for younger children. The highlight had to be the Dolphin Trip. There were so many companies to choose from, so we got in touch with Chris who helped us decide, very helpful. Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins but the boat trip was fantastic, well worth the money just for that, although not advisable for people suffering from bad backs! We found a lovely beach up the coast at Salema, and a really nice beach bar with excellent food. We would highly recommend this villa and have already booked to go again this year.

Holiday in July 2007 Niloy UK.Date Submitted: Feb 06, 2008 Date of Stay: Jul 2007 Excellent house with nice communal pool. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Kids (twins 6 1/2 years ) were thrilled with the swimming pool and evening was relaxing with sky tv. Shops within walking distance if not too hot. 10-15 minutes to the town centre. Beautifull children friendly beach. Overall a nice holiday, though the heat was overpowering in July. House well recommended and so is the place for family with small children or for relaxing holiday. Recommended for: Families with Young Children

Private Owner From Frinton On Sea, United Kingdom Member since Mar 2008

Thanks for reading so far.. I am a farm manager working for the last 33 years on a farm on the east coast of Essex, very close to Frinton on Sea. Margaret, Mac for short is the farm secretary. I live in a tied house which allowed us to buy the house in Portugal. It is in fact the only house we own so hopefully the decor and furnishings reflect that. We are comfortable in it and we very much hope you will be too.
