Wonderful villa in a wonderful location!
We stayed here for 3 weeks in July and it was perfect for us. It was very clean and we were supplied with everything we needed. The pool was a great size and deliciously warm although I would recommend covering the pool every evening to keep in the heat of the day. Every other evening we walked into the town of Luz which has many excellent restaurants. The Dolphin, Look, Fabrica and Boaty's to name a few. The walk was around 25 minutes. Boaty's was further at about a 35 minute walk but I would thoroughly recommend it as the food and the service were next to none! Amanda was on hand to help us with any enquiries and she clearly knew the area well and was great at recommending fabulous places to eat. Overall it was a really lovely villa and we are looking forward to returning to it next year!
Well, what can I say....this villa was amazing!!! We were a party of 6 adults and 2 children and we couldn't have been happier. When we arrived the cleaners were just finishing up as we arrived slightly early. The villa was immaculate and so we're the grounds and the pool. The pool cleaner came whilst we were there and also the gardeners on a few occasions. The pool was beautiful and we also paid to have it heated for our stay which was well worth it as we all needed a cool down from the 30 degree heat we had on some days.
We had one slight issue with the drainage but the agent Amanda was on hand and very helpful. She arrived within 2 hours with the required drainage services and all was rectified.
The layout of the villa was as described and all rooms were very secure with electric shutters and locking patio doors. The villa is very private and is not overlooked by any others. The villa felt very secure and also benefitted from front electric gates and an alarm.
We didn't walk into Luz but I would imagine it would take around 15-20 minutes. We had hire cars and also used Dario Taxi's in the evenings to go for dinner. We also used the BBQ on a few occasions for lunch and dinner. It was very relaxing and great to sit and eat in such lovely surroundings.
Restaurants we would recommend:
Alorro, a lovely Italian in the Baia da Luz complex
Onda Norte, Lagos (lovely meat platters and fish dishes)
Laurencos, Salema (amazing fish restaurant)
Royal Garden Chinese, Luz
We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and would love to return in the future.
Big thanks to the agent Amanda for always being at the end of the phone and for making the booking process and our stay hassle free and enjoyable!
