Beach villa with 3 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, private pool and golf nearby in Monte Lemos, Algarve

From £925 per week

Beach villa with private swimming pool. Located in the prestigious Monte Lemos area. All local amenities easily accessible, only eight minutes walk from the town centre.

Overview

Casa Encantadora is located in the prestigious Monte Lemos area of Praia da Luz, approximately fifteen minutes walk from the beach and five to ten minutes walk from many of the restaurants, bars, cafes and shops that the town offers. The villa is set in a walled garden, accessed by security gates and with ample parking space for two or three cars. The property is level with landscaped garden areas and there is a good sized pool with a pool cover to retain the temperature and also an outside shower. Plenty of outside furniture is provided for your enjoyment as is the built in charcoal barbeque area located to one side of the house.
The kitchen, living/dining room and one twin bedroom with an en suite shower room and separate cloakroom are downstairs. The kitchen is large with an electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer and washer/dryer together with the usual kettle, toaster, iron and board.

The living area is also large with a dining table to seat six and three 2 seater settees arranged around a coffee table. Patio doors from this room lead out onto the pool terrace. The villa also benefits from under floor heating which, together with the log burner in the sitting room, provides all the comfort needed for the cooler evenings of the winter. Broadband TV , a radio/CD player, DVD and play station with a separate TV are provided. The ground floor bedroom has twin beds with an en suite shower and there is also a separate cloakroom on this floor.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has patio doors leading out onto two terraces, furnished with table and chairs and having good sea views. The bed can be made up as a double or two singles and the en suite bathroom has a bath with shower over. The third bedroom has twin beds, an en suite shower room and patio doors to a small terrace, furnished with chairs, where you can also enjoy a good sea view.

Casa Encantadora makes an ideal location for a holiday at any time of the year. Praia da Luz is also an excellent base from which to discover the rest of the beautiful Western Algarve; the choice of activities and places to visit and explore from this area is exceptional.
The cosmopolitan town of Lagos, which many believe to be the best on the Algarve, is only about 10 minutes drive away. The Marina dominates the river as it opens into the sea and you can choose activities such as deep sea fishing, a dolphin seafari trip and yacht hire. Lagos is an historic town with some city walls and there are several museums and churches worth a visit. This is a working Portuguese town with markets, shops and plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from. The fabulous west coast beaches, where the surfing is renowned, are only 30 minutes drive away and the Monchique hills and the historic old capital of the Algarve, Silves, is an equal distance the other way. A car is not essential for your holiday enjoyment but to gain an appreciation of just what the Western Algarve can offer, a car is recommended.

What a lovely villa in a charming town. My son and I had the most wonderful time there and it was exactly what we had hoped for. We would love to come back and stay again soon, this time with the rest of the family! For once the reviews were spot on and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this charming place. Thanks!

Absolutely fantastic property, couldn't fault this place in any way, tons of space inside and out, great pool and private. The villa is located in a prime location with the beach, bars & restaurants all within 5-10 mins walk. Luz itself is absolutely stunning, will definitely be back.

Casa Encantadora was everything we wanted it to be, comfortable, spotlessly clean and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with all the equipment/utensils needed. The pool was beautiful and has 7 comfortable sun loungers. The 3 bedrooms, all with their own private bathroom were clean, comfortable and spacious. The only thing myself and my two teenage daughters missed was a dressing table and a full length mirror in each bedroom would be useful. The lounge area is perfect and the English TV a bonus. The villa is situated outside the quiet town which we liked. It was a nice walk downhill each evening to the many restaurants down by the beach. All in all we had a super, relaxing holiday in a lovely villa. Would recommend to anyone.

Lovely Villa close to the centre of Luz in a quiet area. Very well equipped with a good sized pool. It even had UK TV channels which is not usual in rentals. Excellent villa.

This is our 5th stay at Casa Encantadora
We wanted a relaxing holiday for our first holiday following covid and that’s exactly what we got. The villa is clean and well equipped. Had a few small issues but Paula, our contact, was made aware and responded timely
This time we did not hire a car but used a private transfer from the airport which worked beautifully and was more cost effective
A very relaxing time

I would highly recommend this property, the photos do not do it justice and the property is much nicer when you arrive. Lovely area and very quiet, just what we were looking for. Lovely pool (serviced twice during our stay). Car was essential for our visit as I struggle with hills - but Luz is a 15 minute walk down the hill with some great restaurants (Arte was my favourite best fresh Tuna around). Maids visit twice a week and we're Lovely. All in all a wonderful villa, with everything that you could ever need, great views and if we get the opportunity to go to Portugal again, Grace will be getting my call to re-book. Excellent value, lovely location.

Private Owner From Wotton-under-edge, United Kingdom Member since Jul 2008

I live in England on the edge of the Cotswolds. I have 3 children. I have run a property company of both commercial and residential properties for over 30 years. I enjoy living in the country but always look forward to going to Portugal especially when the weather at home is dark, grey and cold. I am used to letting out property in my day to day work so I have experience of what people expect in order to have an enjoyable holiday. We have friends who have holidayed on the west coast of the Algarve for over 20 years and said that their favourite place was Praia da Luz so we decided we would go and see for ourselves. The first time we went to Luz we fell in love with it. The beautiful beaches, the lovely blue skies and the warm sunshine was just what we were looking for. The added bonus was although we were in a foreign country the local people all spoke very good English so there was no need to learn Portuguese. Luz is only 45 minutes drive from Faro airport, the town of Lagos is only a 10 min drive away. We looked at several beaches around the area but decided that Luz had the best. After looking at several properties in Luz we felt this one met all our needs and today we are still pleased with the choice we made. We were looking for a villa which was a short walk from the town and beach, not overlooked, has a private swimming pool and with fantastic sea views and that is what we were lucky enough to find. We have owned the villa for 16 years and have always enjoyed our holidays staying at the villa and having a nice restful and relaxed time. It is only 5-10 minutes walk to the shops and beach so you can just walk down in the evening to enjoy a delicious meal at one of several restaurants in the town. You can lounge around the lovely big pool which is private and not overlooked. The gates to the property can be locked and so it is very secure. What I look forward to is to wake up in the morning and look out to see the fantastic sea views. We are fortunate that the management company who look after the villa has their office is literally just down the road.
