About the property

Contemporary Villa with garden only minutes from the beautiful Luz beach

Spacious and contemporary, this luxurious south facing end terraced villa is perfect for families seeking a relaxing self catering break. The property sleeps six comfortably, is centrally located in a quiet residential enclave and less than a five minute stroll to the beautiful beach, bars & restaurants of Luz. Finished to an impeccable standard, the villa comprises a large open plan lounge with spacious dining area, flat screen TV & DVD player and has 3 double bedrooms (master en-suite), all with patio doors to private sun terrace, garden and built-in barbeque dining area. Both the lounge and master bedroom open onto splendid views of the Atlantic Ocean and to the west of the resort lies some of the finest unspoiled coastline of the Algarve. Guests also enjoy full membership of the award winning Ocean Club & its facilities which include 24hr reception, swimming pools (April to October), tennis courts, restaurants, gardens, pool bar & discounted green fees at several nearby golf courses.

Water Related Activities: There is an abundance of water related sports and activities available locally including surfing (the breakers on the Algarve's silver coast attract serious surfers to the most unspoiled and beautifully secluded beaches imaginable), jet skiing, banana boat rides, water skiing etc. Boat trips to the nearby grottoes and sea caves are popular as are big game fishing trips from Florida-style game fishing boats, all bookable locally. For children & families the popular water parks of Slide & Splash and The Big One are a short drive from the resort.

At Lagos marina boat trips for dolphin watching are also avaiable every day during peak season.

Horse Riding: Luz is situated on the edge of the Costa Vicentina Nature Reserve, one of the region's largest nature parks and making the effort to travel a short distance away from the coast will reward you with the splendour of some of Portugal's most beautiful countryside. Exploring this area on horseback is an excellent & relaxing way of taking in the local scenery and there are several stables in the vicinity catering from beginners to experienced riders. Ocean Club reception will be pleased to advise and arrange equestrian activities on our guests' behalf.

The Food & The People: The village of Luz boasts a number of fine restaurants & bars catering for an eclectic range of tastes and palates, offering everything from freshly grilled local fish to barbequed steaks, piri-piri chicken and even ostrich, if it takes your fancy! Washed down with some vinho verde and finished off with a glass of local brandy as you sip your coffee and enjoy sunset over the Atlantic really is hard to beat. The cosmopolitan resort town of Lagos with its fishing harbour, marina and attendant nightlife is only a 10 minute drive away for those who prefer something a little more lively but wherever you go you will be met with the warmest and most genuine of welcomes from the local people - Portugal's greatest and most unsung tourist asset. Those visiting for the first time will yearn to return and regular holidaymakers to this beautiful coastline come back year after year - and it's no wonder why.

Relaxing Month in Beautiful Luz.

  • 5 of 5

We had a most enjoyable stay at Ken’s lovely house in Luz. The property was exceptionally clean and the property manager and cleaning lady were a delight to deal with over our month’s stay. Ken was very pleasant to deal with and the property was as expected and as described.

The house is large and has almost everything one might need. There could be a few more dishes available, especially coffee cups. The lack of a dishwasher was only noticed for the first few days until we settled in for the authentic Portuguese experience of washing dishes by hand.

The local grocery store is wonderful. Great selection of meat and cheese and fruit and vegetables, as well as a good bakery. The local restaurants are excellent. Most everything you need is located in the town but the larger town of Lagos is only a few minutes away by car and absolutely everything is available there.

We enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan a return visit next year!

Great location. Well maintained villa inside and out. Clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous holiday staying in this villa. Loved the resort itself - narrow cobbled streets with traditional white buildings. Plenty of good restaurants. The villa itself was a pleasure to stay in. Attractive decor, clean, well maintained inside and out. Loved the beautiful shrubs and trees in the garden. The staff at the Ocean club were very helpful and friendly. Pools were delightful - large with nice sunbathing areas. Owner Ken very helpful with booking, car hire info and key collection late at night. Friendly member of staff from Ocean Club met us and drove us and our bags right to the door of the villa (even though it was not far, it meant we didn't wake everyone up nearby trundling our cases along)! Hope it won't be too long before we book again. Also, highly recommend the dolphin watching trip from The Beach Hut on the beach. Highlight of the holiday seeing dozens of dolphins swimming alongside the boat!!!! Amazing.

Holiday Home Heaven....

  • 5 of 5

We spent the most amazing 10 days in beautiful tranquil Luz and kens equally beautiful and tranquil villa. Spotless and with housekeeping visiting twice in the 10days was an extra bonus.Loads of space for us, 2 kids and granny.Comfortable and well equipped .We spent every evening dining on the beautiful balcony gazing at sea and stars.The boys aged 7 and 4yrs loved the choice of pools which are just around the corner. The beach is simply stunning and a very short walk from the villa. Ken was a pleasure to deal with and made everything so easy for organizing our trip .The only thing left to say is we'll be back next year 😃

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Ken for letting us stay in your property. It was beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean and had all facilities required. My son said it had great internet. We were very lucky that we had great weather and enjoyed coffee on your balcony every morning with the views of the ocean. We never had a bad meal in any of the restaurants that you recommended, the food was exceptional and good value for money.

We would love to return again very soon.

Car: recommended

The picturesque village of Praia da Luz is a small, family orientated holiday resort of immense charm, located on the beautiful coastline of Portugal's western Algarve, less than one hour by car or taxi from Faro airport. Nestling in it's own bay just a short drive from the lively resort town of Lagos and with a stunning beach of golden sand, Luz is home to a number of excellent fish restaurants & bars and is perfectly located for an idyllic holiday. Take a stroll along the cliff top paths to the small fishing village of Burgau for a taste of Portugal of a time gone by, enjoy the range of water sports on offer or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful and unhurried way of life that will beckon your return. A short drive north will take you into the mountains of the scenic Serra da Monchique with its charming old spa town, and the historic settlements of Silves and Vila do Bispo are both within striking distance and well worth a visit.

Golf: The Algarve has always been a golfers' paradise and there are numerous courses all along the coastline, including the popular and award-winning Boa Vista and Parque da Floresta courses, both of which are less than a 10 minute drive from the villa.
