About the Property

Villa in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve, Portugal - Perfect For Family Holidays. Secure Private Garden and Heated Pool

This owner has been advertising with owners direct since 2004, and completing bookings by BACS, one of the recommended forms of direct payment. Use of the optional online booking system incurs an additional agency fee of between 6 - 8% of the owners listed price, plus VAT, charged to the holiday maker by owners direct.

PROPERTY DETAILS: In a truly enviable location, tucked away in its own private garden, but just 70m from the beach, this well appointed and recently (2015) refurbished 4 bedrooms + 4 bathrooms villa offers excellent accommodation for up to 8 people (+ extra child/baby). Casa das Redes is situated in the beachfront area of Praia da Luz, within the pedestrian and resident only access zone, and with village facilities in very easy reach. The villa is one of four unique and individual residential properties situated within 'Quinta das Redes', which was once the site of the historic beachfront tuna cannery. The original high stone built outer walls of the site provide a desirable level of privacy for the villas within. The villa offers comfortable open plan living, dining and kitchen areas on the ground floor. There are three bedrooms with bathrooms ensuite upstairs, and one bedroom with wetroom ensuite downstairs, plus separate downstairs wc. Outside there is a 9m x 5m heated pool, plus paddling pool set in a secure and private walled garden with lemon trees and palms. There is a comfortable outside seating area, with large sofa and chairs around a tiled top coffee table, and a shaded dining area with built in BBQ overlooking the pool. The ground floor of the villa has level access to the outside areas and down to the beachfront and it's facilities. Ideally positioned for family holidays, the property offers both the advantages and amenities of a central position at the beach, and a high level of privacy and security afforded by the enclosed walled garden. A car is not necessary for a holiday at this property although there is off street parking for one car and secondary parking just outside the gates in the resident parking and access zone. Wifi, TV with all UK channels, freeview, and catch up, a safe, cot, high chair, stair gate.

Car: Not Necessary


Praia da Luz is arguably one of the prettiest beaches in the Western Algarve, sporting the european blue flag, and classified as accessible with ramps and walkways and facilities for the disabled. East are picturesque rocky coves and the long sandy crescent of Meia Praia at Lagos, within 10 minutes drive. 15 minutes West are the resort beaches of Burgau and Salema, and further again are a multitude of beaches frequented by surfers, Spectacular and less busy but not so safe for small children.


Faro is the nearest airport at only a 1 hour drive away.


Praia da Luz beach 70m. Historic town of Lagos 8 mins by car. Cape St Vincent 30 mins by car.

Further Details:

The villa is centrally placed and within walking distance to all village amenities which include post office, bank, cash dispensing machines, several supermarkets, pharmacy, English-speaking doctors surgery and dentist. Zoomarine dolphin park and Slide and Splash water park provide coach transport from Luz. Anglican church services are held on Sunday in the local church. Tennis is widely available, including lessons and friendly tournaments. There are two water-sport centres on the beach providing everything from banana boat rides, to sailing lessons, to fishing excursions. From Lagos you can try parasailing, deep-sea fishing, dolphin safari, or visit the grottos by fishing boat. There are several surf centers offering day trips to wherever the waves are best on the day, wetsuits, equipment and instruction as required. Luz can offer truly international cuisine in a wide choice of cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes and occasions. Many are family friendly and also offer a takeaway service. For a change of scene we recommend an evening out in the historic town of Lagos. The 8 minute taxi ride is inexpensive - let us book for you and just sit back and enjoy the local wines. For younger children, a visit to the local zoo is both delightful and educational, and there are kids activities available in the village.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: My parents purchased our family property in this then undiscovered part of the Algarve in 1966. For many years the farmhouse, which was the surviving building on the site of the old tuna cannery, was a haven of peace for happy family summers. I chose to make my life here in the late 80's, and the property passed to me in 1996. As times changed, and with careful thought, the old farmhouse and outbuildings were remodelled and developed. Today we can offer desirable villa accommodation in the same perfect holiday location we enjoyed as children, but with all modern facilities. We now have many returning guests who have taken Luz to their hearts in the same way as my own family did so many years ago.
