Property description

Casa Alimas is licensed by Câmara Municipal de Lagos (the local council) as meeting all requirements of the Alojamento Local (AL) legislation for holiday rental properties. Registration number: 3890/AL.

This spacious detached holiday villa is set in a peaceful location, a short walk from the centre of Praia da Luz and the beach. The 3 bedrooms (one double and two twins) usually accommodate up to six people, but can comfortably accommodate eight people. New bathroom and shower room added (2012), so each bedroom now has ensuite facilities.

A spiral staircase, with child gates, leads upstairs to the large, fully equipped kitchen and the lounge/dining room. Three sets of patio doors lead onto the broad balcony with beautiful views over Luz and the Atlantic Ocean.

The large 10m x 5m swimming pool is walled for privacy with areas for sunbathing on all sides. The gardens are well stocked with flowers and fruit trees. An almond grove in front of the villa adds to the sense of peace and privacy. Fully equipped, including Air Con, broadband wifi, Satellite TV ( UK channels), DVD, VCR, CD/Radio/iPod player, telephone, dishwasher etc. Ideal for family holidays. Private parking for three cars.

Praia da Luz is developing into a busy resort in the peak summer, but Casa Alimas offers a peaceful position accessible along a cobbled lane in the centre of Luz. The beach, shops and restaurants are all within 10 minutes walk of the villa. There are many good restaurants in Luz and even more in Lagos. The beach is protected by the famous 'Black Rock' headland and is very popular with the Portuguese. There are many quieter beaches within a short drive. The local villa management company can arrange many local leisure activities for you, such as tennis, water sports and horse riding.

Lagos and the Algarve: Between Luz and Lagos there are spectacular caves and grottos, accessible from land at Ponta da Piedade or by sea from various boat trips out of Lagos. The historic town of Lagos is just 10 minutes drive from the villa and has a wide range of good shops and restaurants. The main street fronts onto the river and the elegant marina.
There are numerous beaches both to the East and the West of the villa. Other attractions include Zoo Marine - a seaworld park; Family Water Parks; Lagos Zoo (a small but very attractive zoo); Monchique and the hills, Cape St. Vincente ('The end of the World'); and the wilder West Coast. The nearest golf course is at the new Boavista resort just outside Praia da Luz. There are numerous other courses all along the Algarve.

Car: Recommended

Praia da Luz is a family resort in the Western Algarve, just outside the attractive town of Lagos. The Blue Flag beach at Luz is a ten minute walk from the villa. At one end of the beach the Black Rock dominates the bay, with its remnants of volcanic activity. At the other end there are rock pools. In between there's a long stretch of golden sand. The paved promenade has a small number of shops and cafés along its length. There are plenty of restaurants in Luz and a good supermarket - all within 10 minutes walk from the villa. With the opening of the A22 motorway, it's a 50 minutes to drive from Faro Airport. Luz is an ideal location to enjoy the local beaches or to explore the rest of the Algarve. The historic town of Lagos, with its wide selection of shops, restaurants and its marina, is just a short ten minute drive away. In the other direction, it's a thirty minute drive to the 'end of the World' at Cape St. Vincent (Cabo de São Vicente).
