About Karen Athill
We are the Athill family. Villa Laranja is our only holiday rental property and it is a labour of love. We have had many family holidays with large groups of friends so we have tried to create an environment that considers all of the experiences we have had on our previous holidays. We've tried to add all of the little touches that make a group holiday just that little bit more special. We hope you enjoy staying at our beautiful villa.

Beautiful house within driving distance of amazing beaches, sites and nice villages. Our party was 11 people and we had plenty of room. We rated it 4 out of 5 stars because not all supplies were in the house (hand soap, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc.). Overall I would stay at this place again.
The place is huge and the pool a decent size. The kitchen has almost everything you could want and the shops are not far away at all. The beach is 15-20 minutes walk away (with bars and restaurants a bit closer). The villa is well maintained and the pool was regularly checked throughout the week.
The owners were easy to communicate with a check in was straightforward.
Would definitely stay again.
Villa Naranja is the ideal place for a big group!
My high expectations for this property were met in full! We were celebrating my 60th birthday, "Savoring Sixty" and had a house party of close friends and family. It was a very memorable experience.
I was really happy to see so many glasses, plates, silverware etc. and when we sought some extras to lay our celebratory table, Lourina was able to bring tablecloths and nicer salt and pepper shakers. Their response to our questions was terrific. Although they forgot to heat the pool that we paid extra for, when they found out, it was rectified immediately! Great service.
All my guests were very complimentary about their accomodation and we would all return.
Thank you for your lovely review and delighted we could help make your birthday so memorable.

Beautiful villa, great for families
We had a wonderful stay with the family. There are great facilities including a barbecue, a lovely pool and amazing views. It’s a short walk down the hill into town where there are nice restaurants and beach bars. The villa is close to the main route through the Algarve, so really well placed for exploring the area. We really enjoyed the holiday and would definitely recommend the villa.
Praia da Luz is a lovely family orientated resort towards the quieter Western end of the Algarve coast. The beach is long and sandy and backed by a beautiful palm tree lined promenade. It has numerous restaurants, bars and shops. The larger town of Lagos is only a 10-minute drive away and this has a more cosmopolitan night-life along with a lovely marina, loads more restaurants and shops and several sandy beaches. The Algarve is famous for its fabulous golf courses and the closest are Boavista and Parque da floresta which are both a 5-10 min drive. As Villa Laranja is so close to all these amenities car hire is not essential although we would recommend it to allow exploration of the lovely Algarve coastline, mountains and towns. Villa Laranja is situated at the top of a hill so a car would be necessary for the elderly, small children or less mobile people.
Golf: Boavista golf course is very close to our villa, this is the newest & much praised course situated only 2km from the villa or 5 minute drive. It has other facilities there i.e. tennis, indoor pool & a spa. Also we are within a 20 min drive to 'Parque da Floresta' golf course, which also has extra facilities open to all i.e. tennis, lawn bowls, archery & a spa. The same distance is the 'Palmaras' golf course, to the East of Lagos, which is very picturesque & has 5 unique links holes along the dunes of Meia Praia beach & then there is the championship 'Penina' golf course which is approx. a 25 min drive away, as are the 3 courses at Silves. All the other courses around Quinta da Lago, Vale do Lobo & Villamoura are also very accessible (all within a 45 min. easy drive) now that there is the very convenient A22 motorway.
Please note - If you are using Google Earth to get a better idea of the villa and it's surroundings the current images shown are from 2006/7. The building site to the West was completely finished around 2009 including the introduction of a small playground just 30 seconds walk from the villa.
