Set in a wonderful position close to the Blue Flag beach of Praia da Luz, this lovely resort offers a wide range of leisure facilities for adults and children alike. Landscaped gardens, complete with cypress, olive and palm trees, bordered with fragrant lavender, are dotted around the Moorish-style resort village, its graceful arches and decorative columns adding a traditional touch in contrast to the accommodation’s sleek, modern interiors.

The atmospheric little town of Luz is within easy walking distance and has an array of cafés, restaurants, market stalls and shops. Enjoy a stroll along the palm-fringed promenade that overlooks the beautiful sandy beach, sheltered at one end by the dramatic Rocha Negra headland and perfect for families and watersports enthusiasts.

Cornwall Group
Beautiful villa is well-organised resort. Restaurant is a fantastic addition. Villa was well equipped.

Our only slight gripes were that the Apartment was only cleaned once during our stay. This would not have been a
Problem for us apart from the fact that we were told that it would be cleaned twice.

Another issue is that the apartment is only available after 4 and we arrived at 12. There really should be a contingency for when James villas arrange early flights. We missed most of the first day of our holiday as a result.

The villa location was ideal as we had children in our party. Access to the pool area was safe and easy. The villas ( we had two for our holiday) were well furnished and clean.

Laura

Family (with only pre-school children)
Fantastic spacious villa that was spotlessly clean (and cleaned 5 times during our two week stay).
The third bedroom upstairs is ‘open plan’ which means the stairs leading from the main living area lead straight into the room. There is no door so noise travels from downstairs very easily. Something to bear in mind if you will have young children who might be up at 5am like ours and grandparents who want a lie in!
There was plenty of equipment for self catering. It would have been great if some basics were included eg salt and pepper.
The outside balcony was big enough for a table and still room for several chairs. A barbecue would have been amazing but I didn’t notice anyone in the resort with one so presume they’re not allowed. It would be great if there had been a BBQ area within the complex.
We bought an umbrella to take to the beach as well as a couple of mats- again it would have been great if there had been some in the villa we could have borrowed.
Towels are included and beach towels can be rented from reception for the duration of your holiday for €2.50.
The complex was absolutely spotless with beautiful gardens that were well tended. The pool was warm and clean and the toilet and changing facilities there were also really well maintained. There were plenty of sun loungers but we did travel out of peak school holiday time.
The small park was a bonus- it would have been great if there had been a smaller swing and some play equipment for our almost 1 year old as well as the two bigger swings and bigger climbing frame.
The on-site restaurant functioned as a pool bar in the day, serving drinks and ice creams. You could also sit in and eat from their lunch menu which included pizzas, sandwiches and burgers. It was reasonable and the food was good.
We had a great time in this lovely villa. Thank you!
