Casa dos Cara, Praia da Luz, Algarve

Property ref: PA117

Casa dos Cara is set into the hillside behind the village of Praia da Luz, with spectacular views to the sea. The villa is a ten minute walk to the village centre and only slightly further to the beach. As it is on a hillside and the first 450 metres is an unmade road, a car is recommended for shopping and a torch is a good idea if walking in the evenings. 

The front door opens into a hall from where steps lead down to the light and airy living/dining room with pretty sofas, armchairs and a wood burning fire. From here doors lead onto a long, shaded terrace (also accessed from the bedrooms), an ideal spot for admiring the lovely views. There is a garden with lawn to the side of the villa which can be accessed from the pool area.  The pool is below the terrace and is walled and gated from the house and enjoys complete privacy from neighbours.

Cara is next to Gemima making this a good choice for 2 families wanting to holiday together.

Things we love
"Most of the villas do not require a hire car and the beaches are fairly shallow and therefore good for families. Visitors can purchase a day pass for Luz Bay Club Hotel which has indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and squash courts, Turkish baths and a gym."
Things to be aware of
"Taxi transfers from the airport are quite expensive but many of our properties are within walking distance of amenities making this a relaxed holiday destination for those who prefer not to drive."
