This is a linked single story villa, approved to Alojomento Local standards (ref:5372/AL), in the enclosed holiday village of Monte Sao Pedro. About 100 metres away is the communal swimming pool, tennis court and children's playground. FOR TECHNICAL REASONS, THE SWIMMING POOL IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE, AND WE CURRENTLY HAVE NO INFORMATION ON WHEN IT WILL RE-OPEN. The villa sleeps four in comfort with a good quality folding bed for a fifth person. The carport gives direct access to the comfortable lounge/dining room which has patio doors opening onto a terrace at the front. TV is received via internet which gives all the normal UK TV and radio programmes and a selection of other European language channels including Portuguese, German, French etc. As a bonus, there is FREE WIFI and FREE local telephone calls (book your restaurant, taxi etc.) The DVD player allows playing (but not recording) of DVDs and CDs. A selection of DVDs, CDs and books are provided. The kitchen is equipped with an electric cooker with oven and four ring ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and sufficient cooking utensils for most needs. Outside there is a large private rear patio with built in barbecue, extra toilet and a loggia providing shade to the outdoor dining area. Barbecue tools are provided.
Getting about: : Whilst the beach is only about 20 minutes walk along the main road, there are no footpaths and the road is very busy in the main tourist season. There are bus stops outside the main gate with regular services to Praia da Luz or Lagos. A Taxi to the beach should cost approx. €4 and to Lagos, approx. €9. A car is recommended for at least a part of your stay and the owners normally use 'Marina Rentacar' in Lagos. tel 00351282764789.(please mention MSP 27)
Golf:: The nearest golf course is 'Boa Vista' - about five minutes drive in the direction of Lagos with a further option at Parque de Floresta - about 20 minutes drive towards Vila do Bispo and on the junction to the delightful beach at Salema. There is also a traditional 'links' course at Lagos.
Property maintainance: In order to keep the property in good condition, we undertake a cycle of painting, taking about five years to repaint the total inside and outside of the villa. Recently, redecoration has been carried out in the entrance hall and kitchen (including the cupboards). The marble floors throughout the villa have been deep cleaned and repolished to bring them back to their original state. For the 2013 season, a new double glazed patio door and a new, electrically operated blind, have been fitted at the front and the bathroom has been refurbished with a new toilet and walk-in shower.
The front bedroom has twin beds and overlooks a pebble garden with a lemon tree (try fresh lemon with your G&T)
The rear bedroom has a double bed and ovelooks a small flower border and has views to the far hills.
A folding bed provides accomodation for a fifth person in either the lounge or the rear bedroom....moreless
The bathroom is fully tiled and includes a large walk-in shower enclosure.
A second shower (only) is situated in the store room in the carport and there is an additional toilet outside on the barbecue / patio area....moreless
Wheelchair access is via the sloping drive to the carport which then leads directly into the lounge. All rooms are on the same level and wheelchair access to the barbecue area would be best achieved via the carport....moreless

Monte sao Pedro is in a valley leading down to the Atlantic Ocean at the golden sandy beach of Praia da Luz approximately 2km away.
Praia da Luz is in the Western Algarve, an area of unspoilt villages and open countryside. Thankfully, the original name of ‘Praia de Igreja da Nossa Senhora da Luz’ (Beach of the Church of Our Lady of Light) has been shortened to Praia da Luz or just Luz (pronounced (Looze or Loosh)
Behind the beach narrow streets of white painted houses lead to the Church and the village centre. The old and the new blend together encouraging you to relax and feel at home.
Praia da Luz was originally a fishing village specialising in Tuna, caught in a long wall of net stretching from the rocks in front of the Fortaleza. Today the fish swim further out to sea and the remaining fishermen work from the harbour at nearby Lagos.
Luz is renowned for its safe sandy beach which is an important part of a holiday for many holidaymakers.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I worked in the steel industry for the whole of my Woking life until I finally retired at the age of 70.
My wife and I bought 'Casa Seivad' In 2006 and we celebrated our Golden Wedding in2012. During the time we have owned the villa, we have made improvements every year. We holiday in Portugal at least twice each year but we are happy to let the villa to others who will look after it during the summer.
Why the Owner Chose Lagos: We bought the property from the original owner who had it built when the complex was originally developed. He is an old friend of mine so we have every confidence in the maintenance history.
