The villa is accessed via a double glazed porch which leads directly into the spacious lounge/dining room. A separate modern well equipped kitchen is accessed from the lounge and an inner hallway leads to the two bedrooms and the shower and WC.
The latest improvements are new master bedroom furniture to match that in the lounge and a new electric pool cover.
All of the properties in this quiet location are individually designed and several are permanently occupied by their owners contributing to the friendliness and tranquillity of the surroundings.

It is large enough to accommodate a fold out bed or a cot for an extra child if required. The smaller twin bedroom has comfortable twin beds and a fitted wardrobe. The separate shower room is next door to this bedroom. Both bedrooms have remote controls ceiling fans for comfort on the occasional very warm nights. For the winter, there is also underfloor heating in both the bedrooms and bathrooms which also have heated towel rails.

Steps lead down the side of the villa to the pool, lawned area and fruit trees from this area. There is a large south facing terrace outside the lounge that wraps around and can also be accessed from the master bedroom. There is a large oval dining table with seating for 6 people and a large sun umbrella for welcome shade in summer. Winding steps lead from the terrace down to the pool and gardens. There is ample room for 6 sunbeds round the pool.
All of the accommodation is currently on one level. However there are steps on either side of the villa that lead down to the pool area but once down there the pool area and garden are easily accessible and mostly on one level.
The pool is cleaned weekly and the gardens are also tended weekly by the same company. The household linen is changed weekly and the villa is cleaned immediately before your stay and on a weekly basis if staying longer than one week. Beach towels (one per person) are provided during your stay.The management company that looks after the villa is situated in Luz and their office is open 10am-1pm and 3-5pm.

There is also a travel cot available for an infant or a larger cot and/or high chair can be hired for a small weekly charge. A small fold out bed is available for a larger child but for an extra adult, this would only be suitable for a few nights' stay.

The Area: Praia Da Luz, Western Algarve
Luz is a busy and popular holiday resort 10 minutes by car from the medieval walled town and port of Lagos. Luz is a family favourite with its expansive safe, sandy beach, an abundance of water sports and activities plus numerous restaurants and bars scattered throughout the village. It is an ideal base to explore the Algarve. Go west and you arrive at the most south westerly point of Europe (Cape St Vincent), north west is Vila do Bispo and the Atlantic west coast, north lies the forest, north east the mountain village of Monchique and the hot mineral baths of Caldas de Monchique, east takes you to Lagos and then to Portimao, both offering excellent shopping and sightseeing, with plenty of night life and entertainment for those of a more energetic inclination. There are four top quality golf courses within 10 minutes' drive, a Zoo close by and the water parks "Slide and Splash" and "Aqualand" only 30 minutes away.
Whatever the season, you will find plenty to do in the surrounding area. Close to Lagos airport you can now try wakeboarding and you can also take a water taxi to and from Alvor during the summer from Lagos marina. Above the expansive beach of Meia Praia on the East side of Lagos is Parque Aventura (Lagos) which is great for outdoor activity for all ages and includes a Zip Line. Great reviews on Trip Advisor and open all year round. I f you want something more tranquil, try the Crazy Golf complex just outside the city walls. Suitable for all ages and abilities.

Changeovers are flexible out of peak season. But once a booking is taken for peak season, then we would prefer that bookings fall within one day of each other please. On the day of arrival, the villa is accessible from 2pm and must be vacated by 10am on the day of departure to allow preparation of the villa for the next clients who may be arriving later that day. If there is no one booked in immediately before you arrive or after your stay, it may be possible to be flexible on times.
We would prefer that change-overs do not occur on a Sunday if possible because the cleaners want a day off! However, if this is the only option, then whoever books second for that day may have to pay a 30 Euro surcharge. New clients will also be required to pay a £50 returnable security deposit with the balance of the villa rental which is returned no later than 14 days after the holiday has ended.
When confirming a reservation, a £100 deposit per week is required within 7 days, with the balance being paid no later than 6 weeks prior to your holiday arrival.
Reviews of VILA SOL
This villa is everything you could need. To sit on the terrace in the morning looking at the wonderful view, watching the boats float by in the distance is so relaxing and beautiful.
The facilities are excellent and the pool such a good size for both swimming and playing water vollyball, etc. Always a perfect temperature and so clean. The kitchen is fully equipped and lacks nothing. The lounge has games, books, television and very comfortable seating.
The gardens are gorgeous and if you go at the right time you can pick lemons and limes from the trees at the bottom of the garden for your drinks and cooking.
It is walkable to Luz and although a very steep hill back, very easily done. A car is needed for travelling further of course.
If we could live in the villa and stay forever we would, could not recommend it more and the owners are delightful to deal with.
Vila Sol is a lovely 2 bed villa well equipped and in a great location and has a super sea view. It is a nice 10/15 minute stroll downhill to bars, restaurants and the beach and a taxi back up the hill only costs around €5. The villa is kept spotless as are the gardens and pool. The pool area is very private and not overlooked at all. We have returned there for the last 3 years and hope to go again soon. I highly recommend this villa.
Perfect in every sense of the word. A lovely quiet area, fantastic pool and a brilliant house where you find every little thing you could possiby want.
Outside beautifully cared for gardens with a lemon just in reach for your G & T.
We will definitely be back some day..... thank you!
We have been coming to Villa Sol since 2007 and in that time Kath & Fred have made many improvements to the property including the fabulous pool and the extended terrace with stunning views.
The villa is equipped with everything you need to have a relaxing holiday and there are many good restaurants in both Praia da Luz and nearby Lagos.
There is plenty of golf in the area, the closest being Boavista which is a very challenging resort course.
Looking forward to our next visit.
