4-bed villa sleeps 8. Private pool, gated 2 acre grounds with Panoramic sea view

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,800 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, beautifully presented, completely equipped.

Located in the wonderfully unexploited Western Algarve, the Villa affords an uninterrupted panorama of the Atlantic Ocean, from its secluded setting in 2 acres of privately-owned grounds.

3 double bedrooms open to the wrap-around terrace, all with sea-views. A 4th acts as a single-adult, or kids double bedroom and/or hang-out

Within it’s own secure, gated boundary, guests will find a pool, beautiful gardens and exceptionally designed outdoor living spaces.

Please note that the swimming pool is not gated.

The breathtaking, rugged coast is under 8 minutes walk away, with the coastal-path leading directly to the beautiful seaside village of Praia da Luz, along the very safe coastal path.

The area has some of the best family beaches in the Algarve: clean, golden, and sheltered. The famous Costa Vicentina National Park is close-by and there are a number of exceptional golf courses within easy reach.

The Villa gives you comfort, seclusion, space, views, private pool and private grounds but with ready access to the outside world.

Praia da Luz: A lovely beach with lots of restaurants, bars and cafés; a bank, shops for everything you are likely to need and all in a very attractive setting. It is an ideal resort for family holidays, with safe beach and activities...artists and bands perform along the beach-side Promenade if you want a break from the beach.

There are also ruins of Roman baths from 3rd to 5th century A.D

The main supermarket is Baptista,, fresh produce and a great selection of wine.

Nearby is a wonderful deli and fresh fish counter.

Lagos is around a 10-minute drive away. Praia da Luz is reachable via bus from Faro and there are regular bus services connecting Praia da Luz with the rest of the Algarve.

A Portuguese National Park borders the Praia da Luz Region and a number of golf courses are within easy reach.

Local Attractions: Lagos Zoo is only a short drive away and it concentrates on smaller animals - the monkey islands are brilliant - it is an ideal afternoon out. It's not too big, so not overly tiring for young children and also has a 'pets corner'

Slide and Splash at Lagoa is the nearest water park . Going west towards Sagres, there is a Blo kart track just beside the N125 past Vila do Bispo.

Find good surfing at Sagres on the western Atlantic coast and Fishing Trips run out of Lagos.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Despite having been lucky enough to stay in a wide range of different hotels and holiday villas around Europe, this charming villa and it's location truly took my breath away. It's a little piece of paradise with sea views to die for. The villa is full of character, has everything you'd ever need and feels like a much loved family home rather than a characterless commercial rental. It is tucked away in a glorious plot offering privacy and seclusion yet with the village and beach within walking distance. The staff were all absolutely charming, helpful yet discreet. We were 3 mothers with 5 children between us from 7 - 17 years so the maximum number allowed, but with lots of different areas around the grounds to spread out, we never felt on top of each other. The villa has a fantastic range of books and games - family monopoly became a huge hit with all the kids after supper - and the pool and stunning nearby beaches kept everybody happily entertained during the day. The nearby town of Lagos has a fantastic range of bars and restaurants if you fancy a break from cooking and a great place to wander around in the evenings. Although there over October half term we had amazing weather - blue skies, temperatures in the 80's and near deserted sandy beaches.

With no high rise hotels in sight, amazing food and local wine, a stunning coastline full of uncrowded sandy coves to explore, this area of Portugal feels very special indeed. We're already planning our return trip. Thank you so much from us all for a truly memorable holiday.

A wonderful, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed a wonderfully, relaxing holiday in this beautiful villa. It has such a homely feel to it and is so comfortable - it's a real home from home (so much so that none of us wanted to come home!)

It was also fabulous to be so close to the sea and to be able to walk everywhere or to just sit and appreciate the fabulous views in the uninterrupted sunshine - I would love to go back right now and start the holiday all over again! Highly recommended.

We loved it! Thank you.

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Firstly can I say what a wonderful time we had at Casa Romanzeira, the house and its grounds were the making of our wonderful holiday. My wife is currently pregnant and is expecting for late November. In her own words it was one of the most relaxing holidays she has had. My two daughter of 4 and 2 loved the pool and the fact they had their own "bedrooms with double beds". We spent most of our time beside the pool in the knowledge that the kids were safe to roam around in the secure grounds, all in all a fantastic trip in a fantastic villa. The Netflix was a huge hit with the kids and gave us some very welcome downtime as they watched their programs before bedtime.

I am involved in property and the tourism/leisure business in Ireland and it was a pleasure to stay in such a fine house within a great area. We hired a car from the airport and this gave us great flexibility to travel around a bit, especially in the late afternoon when it got a bit cooler.

Praia da Luz is a very beautiful town with everything we needed for our week. It was great to be located so close to the town but also far enough away to be able to appreciate the night time quietness and stunning views from the balconies. My 4 year wants to know when we are going back to the best holiday house ever.

Thank you for the please of staying in your beautiful villa and we look forward to our next stay there.

Relaxing stay in the Algarve with amazing view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfect for a big family. The 6 of us, 3 adults and 3 teens were very comfortable and there are lot of spaces for everyone to relax and enjoy the day. The pool was a perfect end of day relaxing moment. Kitchen well equipped with beautiful Portuguese serving dishes. The leaving area being upstairs made us smile each day as we were able to enjoy the stunning view from breakfast through dinner. The location of the villa in the area is great, with no neighbor on one side, it was very peaceful and quiet. I would highly recommend this villa and would come back anytime.

Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

To find somewhere that gives you everything you need from a holiday is hard to find. To say that Casa Romantica gives it to you again and again is no understatement! From the peaceful tranquility of the house and gardens, to the amazing pool, or the terrace and bar-b-q area to sit and eat with family or the welcoming shade from the willow tree to lay underneath and read your book. This place really has it all. The house is fully stocked, with everything you need to make sure your holiday is a stress free one. It really is truly magical. Thank you Casa Romantica for the best holiday I have had in years. We'll definitely be back next year!!!

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

The villa and its location exceeded our expectation. It has all the amenities you need, charming comfortable ambiance with a local flair and gorgeous views. The gardens are filled with beautiful fragrant flowers and little pathways that my girls loved exploring each morning and evening. We were all a bit heavy hearted leaving and cannot wait to return again soon.
