Casa Monte Santa Luzia
Loule benefits from a higher per capita income than all of the other towns in the Algarve and is attractive in summer and winter alike. Portugal, and the Algarve in particular, has been one of the top destinations for visitors from the whole of Europe since the 1970's. What makes the Algarve 'special' are the local Portuguese people themselves, who are welcoming and very helpful.
Casa Monte is serene, in a beautiful location; unspoiled rural area but central to everything, - Faro airport is only 25 minutes by car or taxi and is surrounded to the south, west & east by many upmarket golf courses, tennis courts and seaside activities.
You will not be disappointed with both the villa and the location.
All 5 bedrooms are air-conditioned (1 bedroom ensuite and 4 bedrooms have a shared bathroom). The property also has a large games room with satellite TV and a play-station to keep the children & adults entertained.
There is ample pool terrace furniture and BBQ area with table and seating for 12 people on the kitchen terrace. The lounge and bedroom terraces overlook the extensive landscaped gardens and pool.
There is a villa manager and her team of cleaners who can be employed to help with the running of the property at an extra cost.

We stayed at that house for 2 weeks and it was very well taken care of. The beddings were much nicer than in the pictures. All the toys to entertain children were there. The kitchen was very practical and well equipped. The downside is that it was a little far away in the country from the usual areas for villa rentals. We did not appreciate the dogs barking all night and all day, but those are the neighbours so I imagine that there is not much you could do regarding this issue. Aside from that, it was a very nice stay and a beautiful house. Thanks!”
A Wonderful Property
My family and friends all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful house. Both the property manager and the owner were very helpful in the planning and execution of the detailed arrangements. ”
Fabulous villa in peaceful location
Casa Monte Santa Luzia is the perfect place to spend a relaxing week in the sunny Algarve. The villa is beautifully kept and very well equipped - there's little reason to leave. But if you want to travel further afield there are wonderful local restaurants and interesting places to visit within easy driving distance. ”
Wow, wow and another WOW!
We had decided we wanted to check out Portugal, and we targeted the Algarve area, or the for south of Portugal. We flew into Faro Airport from Madrid, and our kids took the train to Faro from Lisbon. In Faro, we rented a van as there were 6 of us. We headed to Casa Monte Santa Luzia following the owner's perfect directions and got our first wow. This casa is a castle on the hill. You can actually see if from down below as we work our way towards it. The views are great, the house is great, Andrew and his wife are great, their manager Alison, is great. It really was a perfect location to do what we did. We used it as our oasis, our hub, as we explored the Algarve but with a day trip to Seville and another to Morocco. Other trips to Logos, To the nearby beach, to a winery.... just wow and lots of wows. We really couldn't have asked for anything better for what we were doing. Actually I think the location forced us to stick to our plan. Had we been down in a town by the sea, we could have gotten lazy and not done the exploring we set out to do. I'd say the only "inconvenience" was that we picked Wednesday as our lazy afternoon by the pool day and to catch up on laundry. That was the afternoon the landscapers came and we had to take down the laundry and get out of the pool so they could clean it. So it was probably posted somewhere but we missed it. But even the landscapers were great and tried to cause as little harm as possible. One even found a struggling baby dove and brought it over and gave it water from the garden hose to help it survive then gently placed in a tree out of harms way. A great place, a great county, filled with great people and great ThirdHome owners!! ”
