We had a great stay at Vila Margarida. Our multi-generational party of 6 adults and 2 kids had plenty of space.

The pool is wonderful. We were there for a warm, but not hot, week in May, and the pool heating was fantastic. Our kids were happy in the pool for hours. I would say it was the best heated pool we've experienced in Europe (in Europe we often find a 'heated' pool just has the edge taken off, but this is properly heated if you take that option). Plenty of loungers around the pool and a choice of sunny or shady spots, which kept everyone happy!

The house is upside-down layout which I think helps to keep the bedrooms cool and the upstairs living areas have lovely views - particularly enjoyed the outlook from the kitchen. The outdoor terrace with sofas gets the morning sun and is perfect for breakfast.

We ate dinner out every evening in Praia da Luz, booking ahead as we were a larger party. We also tried to make time for the Ice Cream Factory everyday! We got all of our groceries from Baptista or Spar supermarkets which are a short walk from the villa.

We had a couple of tennis players in our party and they very much enjoyed having their own private tennis court. We took tennis rackets out for our kids too and they really enjoyed having a go.

We definitely hope to return in the future!

“Fantastic visit to a well appointed large Villa”
Reviewed 27 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Well located in the Luz village to be able to get to the restaurants, beach and grocery shopping. The Villa is absolutely beautiful situated on a well maintained large property including a heated pool and tennis court. Everything you need to enjoy your stay in the Villa is provided. It was a pleasure to deal with Fiona the owner. She responded very quickly to all our arrangements and questions. Nicole from the local management company was a pleasure to deal and ensured that we were comfortable and satisfied with everything in the Villa. Filomena the cleaning lady came in twice a week was friendly and did a great job. We spend 3 weeks at the Villa and enjoyed every moment.
We certainly will be coming back to this Villa in the future.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in Vila Margarida at Easter, & had beautiful weather to make the most of the grounds & lovely warm pool. There were 6 of us so we had masses of space. The villa is very tastefully decorated & the garden beautiful. Everything was immaculately clean & well maintained. I don't think the photos did it justice. It was a week of luxury!
The barbecue area has it's own hob, sink, fridge, large table & chairs, all under shade & next to the pool.
Although Faro is closer, we flew into Lisbon where we hired a car & had a day there each end, which was really worthwhile.
Remember that you can't drink the water in the villa (because it comes from a sink hole) so you need to bring some when you arrive.
