The property is situated in a good residential location, 6km from Lagos.

The lively and fashionable beach resort of Praia da Luz with its superb beach, many bars, restaurants is only 1500 metres away.

Within a few kilometres of the villa, in almost any direction inland, you can be “off the beaten track” and free to motor on rough “caminhos” or to walk in the really undeveloped and unspoiled Algarve where natural picnic sites abound. Between Luz and Sagres there are a number of almost deserted beaches, many have small beach bars.

Local Facilities: Several very good supermarkets will provide all your international food needs and there is also a small daily market and a butcher's. The many restaurants range from simple Portuguese via a range of international eating places including Indian, Chinese & Italian restaurant. Shops include Newsagents, Chemists, several Souvenir shops. Luz even boasts a Post Office and Banks as well as, of course, a Catholic Church (where the Anglican Church of the Algarve also has services at regular intervals).

Lagos Excursion: Lagos (6 kms) much of the town centre is pedestrian-only, there is a myriad of attractive narrow streets opening into pleasant squares with many restaurants, bars, night-clubs. There is a range of shops, two regular daily markets and a Saturday market. This historic town has retained much of its old town wall system and there is a wealth of other buildings of interest including the ancient slave market, the hospital, which was formerly the residence of Henry the Navigator, and the fabulous golden church of Santo António. The town museum is well worth a visit and the Cultural Centre offers a varied programme of exhibitions, plays, and musical events. Exhibitions of paintings and sculpture are often held in the slave market and in the Council Headquarters. Lagos has a wide waterfront promenade linking the old “Fortaleza”, at the harbour mouth, to the yacht marina. Boat trips to the famous Algarve caves and cliffs. Lagos also has its own superb beaches.

Sporting Facilities: Clients staying at the Property can play at specially discounted green fees at the new Boa Vista course about 4 kms away. It has 18 holes a par of 72 and a lengh of 6053 metres. There are some wonderful views over Lagos, Luz and the sea. Also there are discounted green fees at Parque da Floresta, 12kms to the west, or at Palmares about 10kms to the east and Penina, Alto Golf, Morgado do Reguengo and Carvoeiro, which are all with 45 minutes drive. Horseriding is available at Almadena, some 4kms away, and the Burgau Sports Centre, which is 6kms distant, offers Tennis, squash, table tennis a swimming pool, a gymnasium and a fitness centre. Tennis, bowls, an indoor swimming pool and a fitness centre are also available at Parque da Floresta. For birdwatchers, and those who enjoy natural history or botany, the area offers many splendid sites.

Watersports and fishing are available at several locations in the western Algarve (including Praia da Luz).

Calme et reposant...calmo e descançado

  • 4 of 5

Maison de 2 grandes pièces pour 4 personnes, agréable avec tout ce qu'il faut pour passer un bon séjour... grande piscine réservée à notre usage personnel...plage da luz à proximité ( 5 min en voiture et 10 min a pied) et la magnifique ville de Lagos est située à 5km avec superbes plages où toutes sortes d'activités vous y sont proposées ( visites des grottes maritimes , ballades en mer, etc...) Les propriétaires habitent sur place mais a l’écart de la maison loué...ils sont très discrets, très sympa et disponibles pour tout problème ou questions que vous auriez ( nous n'avons eu aucuns soucis et les avons à peine vus durant les 15 jours que nous y avons passés, d'où leur discrétion...) je recommande sans la moindre hésitation en espérant que vous y passerez un aussi bon séjour que le nôtre !!!

Casa de 2 grandes peças para 4 pessoas, muito agradavel com todo o necessario para passar uma boa estadia...grande piscina reservada ao nosso uso pessoal...praia da luz a 5 minutos de carro ou 10 minutos a pé...a lindissima villa de Lagos fica a 5 km, com praias lindas e varias actividades propostas...os senhorios são muito sympaticos, muito discretos e disponiveis para qualquer problema ou pergunta que podem ter ...nos não tivemos nenhum problema e nem se quer os vimos durante os 15 dias que estivemos la por isso digo que gostamos da discreção que tiveram enquanto la estavamos...recommendo sem quelquer hesitação e espero que passem uma estadia maravilhosa como foi a nossa !!!...agradecimentos a Dona Helena e ao Senhor Brown...

Muy Tranquilos

  • 5 of 5

Hemos estado muy tranquilos, todo genial.

La casa es muy cómoda, tiene una buena localización y su piscina es perfecta para relajarse. Sus propietários son muy amables y aunque íbamos con nuestras mascotas no nos han puesto problema alguno.

Como pequeña mejora, se podría poner una vallita para no estar todo el tiempo pendiente de que no se te escapen los perros. Pero todo lo demás genial.

Muchas gracias y esperamos volver pronto!

A nao repetir...

  • 1 of 5

Passamos uma semana na casa, havia 5 ou 6 pratos outros 5 copos, alem dixo ainda tivemos que comprar esponjas e panos para lavar a loiça e manter a bancada limpa, 2 fosforos numa caixa, uma maquina de lavar roupa em que ainda tivemos de comprar capsulas de detergente para a mesma, porque nem 1 havia sido deixada.Desprovida de qualquer tipo de produtos basicos. A TV que é TDT teve 2 dias sem dar rigorosamente nada, noutros dias era com falhas, wi-fi em casa nao apanhava so na rua. Os proprietarios vivem no mesmo recinto, embora nunca tivessem perguntado se precisavamos de algo ou se estava tudo bem, estao sempre por perto o que nos fez tambem sentir alguma falta de privacidade para usufruir da piscina que ainda foi o aspeto mais positivo, pois sem duvida que é muito boa, mas tambem essa começou a ficar cheia de folhas e outras sujidades que se acumularam no fundo da piscina sem ter qualquer tipo de limpeza. Longe de tudo, visto a casa nao ter nada precisavamos de andar constantemente a pegar no carro para ir a mercearia mais proxima que fica a cerca de 2kms. Nao recomendaria de certo esta casa.

Vacances avec vis-à-vis !!

  • 3 of 5

La maison loué ressemble bien aux photos mises sur le site. Cependant GROS BÉMOL!! Toutes les photos sont prises de manière a ce que l'on ne voit pas la maison des propriétaires, puisqu'elles sont prises de leur terrasse. Ainsi nous avons appris sur place que la piscine était a partagée avec l'ensemble de la famille (enfants, amis....) de ce fait, on ne se sent pas réellement "seuls".

Malgré nous avoir affirmé que la piscine était privative, elle ne l'était pas!!!

Le terrain ainsi que la propriété de manière générale n'est pas du tout entretenu... Une épave de voiture est d'ailleurs laissée a l'abandon a côté de la terrasse. Le gazon vert sur les photos laisse place a de l'herbe jauni et aux mauvaises herbes!

Le wifi qui devait nous être fournis lors de notre séjour a été inexistant, même après en avoir avisé les propriétaires! RIEN N'A ÉTÉ FAIT!

Ne comptait pas sur la télévision qui est également fournie avec la location puisqu'elle ne fonctionne pas dès qu'il fait un peu de vent, autant dire tous les soirs!

Seuls points positifs: la grandeur de la piscine, et la fonctionnalité de l'appartement.

Je voelt je welkom

  • 4 of 5

De woning is groter dan het op foto lijkt. Het is er zeer netjes en je hebt er alles wat je nodig hebt voor echt een goedkope prijs.

Als we volgend jaar teruggaan, komen we zeker terug naar dit huisje.

Ook de mensen waren zeer hartelijk en je voelde je er erg welkom.

Het huisje ligt in een zeer veilige wijk en niet zo ver van het centrum(paar km). Wel een auto aan te raden...

Het huisje is gelegen in hun achtertuin, maar je ziet deze mensen zelden en ze maken zelf ook geen gebruik van het zwembad als je er zelf bent.

Onze hond zoë was ook zeer welkom, wat wel zeer leuk is voor hondenliefhebbers.
