Children
The villa is a wonderful place for both adults and children alike. The inner terrace is a perfect place for children to play as it is completely enclosed. There is also, of course, the private pool. At the villa there are buckets and spades, beach toys and even a large blow up dolphin for the pool! A travel cot is in the villa but should you want a big cot and highchair this can be supplied at a small cost. It is a short walk into Luz to the fantastic beach with swings and slides.

The villa is in an excellent area, we did not hire a car so walked down to the town of Luz (about 20 minutes). In the town is everything that you need even your shopping delivered back to your villa for you if you shop at Baptista supermarket. Villa is excellent, spacious and clean with enough room for all of us (4 adults and 3 children). Lovely to have our own pool and the kids never once said that they were bored! Villa would benefit from some new patio furniture and a canopy for protection from the sun. Bedrooms cool at night. Would love to return. Thank you.

This was a wonderful property, more than ample for the four adults and two children in our party. Beautifully decorated and excellently maintain. The areas itself was wonderful and all amenities only a short walk from the Villa. One of the children left their mobile phone and we were contacted and this was returned to us immediately. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We are recommending this to friends and family and would strongly recommend to anyone enquiring on this website.

Excellent for a family holiday (a 6 year old & a two year old), accomodation was spot on, do as much or as little as you want as just stay at the villa or go out, everything is close by. Local restaurants excellent and (given the state of euro, good value), or just get a takeaway. Cant fault the villa or Luiz/Lagos and the trip from the airport is a doddle.

This property was ideal for us and our five children! Quiet, well equipped and relaxing. The directions given to us were flawless and we were at our accommodation within an hour and a quarter from the airport. On arrival the property was clean, tidy and in a well kept state. We found all the crockery and utensils we needed for our fimily. Bathroom/toilet facilities - excellent. The design meant that the bedrooms were cool even in july/August inspite of no air conditioning. Originally bedrooms downstairs and living area upstairs concerned me but it is an excellent idea - lovely views during the day and evening and cool bedrooms at night!! The swimming pool, whilst not large was adequate although some cosmetic work is needed to pool floor. In all very good accommodation - highly recommended by our family of seven. We would like to return.

We had a fabulous ten days in this excellent villa. There wasnt anything we needed, that wasnt available, it was very well equipped. Visitors do need to be aware though, that there is quite a climb back to the villa from the beach/town (my father in law did struggle sometimes). We had to amend our booking at the very last minute (due to the ash cloud) and the owner/management team were very helpful. We would definitely recommend this villa and look forward to returning in the future.

A spacious, clean villa in a peaceful location, very relaxing holiday. A 10/15 min walk into Praia da Luz but a fairly steep walk back! Luz is fairly quiet in the evenings but Lagos is only a 15 min drive away with lively bars, restaurants, shops open till 10pm. Great selec tion of pool things! The beds were hard especially the main bedroom. The pool was pretty cold! The maids came part way through the week which was unexpected. Mgt guy Chris very helpful & accommodating. Limited cooking equipment for the size of villa, particularly only 1 oven shelf (made cooking 5 pizzas lengthy!) The nearby bar/pool etc. available to use - we were told by the Mgr that the pool/garden area was for hotel guests not villa guests. We were able to use the internet if we purchased drinks in the bar. The wi-fi interent was for hotel guests but there were 2 PCs available in the lounge area. All in all, a lovely week. Would recommend the dolphin experience at Zoomarine and the Pirate ship half day trip out to the caves.
Owner reply:

We are purchasing new mattresses which will be more comfortable!

Beautiful villa. Great location. Light and airy. Great pool. Great management and helpful owner. Beautiful beach ten minutes walk. Lovely pool. Exceeded expectations. Amazing value for money. Close to amenities. Would definitely recommend. If you visit Praia da Luz, there is a new restaurant called Lote 1 which is SUPERB. Excellent food for such good value

Gorgeous Villa with plenty of space and everything that you need. I was worried that the Villa did not have air conditioning but due to the design of the building it was always cool even when the temperature was 37C. Very quiet location which is perfect if you just want to relax.

The position of this property was brilliant - views spectacular - only a short walk into Praia da Luz. The standard of the decor inside the property was very tasteful - although we found the beds rather hard - that was the only negative point ! We would definitely recommend this property to friends / family and would consider returning ourselves. We were celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary and discovered that the place we had our honeymoon was villamar a stones throw away from the villa ! A shame we had to leave.....
