About Karen Athill
We are the Athill family. Villa Laranja is our only holiday rental property and it is a labour of love. We have had many family holidays with large groups of friends so we have tried to create an environment that considers all of the experiences we have had on our previous holidays. We've tried to add all of the little touches that make a group holiday just that little bit more special. We hope you enjoy staying at our beautiful villa.

Staying at Villa Laranja Luz
Just as advertised ! Stunning comfortable, lots of rooms/bathrooms
Lots of deck chairs and kitchen ware
Very friendly hosts who respond quickly to queries. We felt so at home in a luxurious sort of way. Highly recommend! Luz a beautiful seaside town.. picture perfect ! Thanks Richard and Karen for your villa.. we loved it
Thank you for your lovely review. Delighted you had such an enjoyable stay in Luz and our villa.
Beautiful villa, great for families
We had a wonderful stay with the family. There are great facilities including a barbecue, a lovely pool and amazing views. It’s a short walk down the hill into town where there are nice restaurants and beach bars. The villa is close to the main route through the Algarve, so really well placed for exploring the area. We really enjoyed the holiday and would definitely recommend the villa.
Fabulous , spacious villa
Villa Laranja was the perfect base for our 3 generation family get together. It is very spacious, well equipped and spotless! The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and all en suite. The pool was a hit for us all, especially the children, with the added bonus of inflatables! Netflix was an added bonus too! One suggestion we all agreed upon was a supply of throw overs for the leather sofas. We actually bought one as it is so difficult with young children and even adults as all wear sun cream. The walk into town is very pleasant,however the walk back uphill was another story,but taxis are very reasonable thankfully!
Communication with the owners Karen and Richard was great and Paula from the management company was excellent! Online shopping from Baptista supermarket was simple and delivered with a smile! We had some lovely meals out and would recommend Aquario, Barrocca, A Fabrica and Paraiso on the beach. Back now to a wet and windy Ireland! Thank you all for a wonderful stay. We have recommended Villa Laranja already!
Pria de Luz
The Villa in Praia de Luz was exactly as advertised;
the views are stunning, the bedrooms and villa are spacious, the locations to the beach and town are ideal. We particularly enjoyed the pool area which had plenty of pool lounge chairs and a very large table to eat at and this area has nice overhead covering which worked out very well with the during the daytime.
The beach is town is really cool with excellent restaurants, cool bars and a beautiful beach. I highly recommend this villa for a large group as well as the area. Fantastic Vacation!!! The owner and management company were excellent.
Great Villa in Luz.
My family and I had a great one week stay at the villa. It was clean, beautifully presented with everything we needed. The rooms were spacious and the outside space (pool, bbq area) was perfect for a big group that wanted to relax by the pool and enjoy each others company. The location was perfect; we rented cars but you could easily walk into town in 10-15 minutes. The beach was gorgeous and there were lots of nice cafes on the beachfront. Luz is a good location to visit other areas such as Lagos (which I would recommend) for the beach, market and restaurants.
We had a great time and the villa most certainty did not disappoint.
Great villa in Praia da Luz
Canadian family of 7 adults one infant, had plenty of room to relax and enjoy the views, at this property. The walk down to beach a bit longer than expected and the return a challenge ‘some’ days, otherwise enjoyed the walk and exercise. Beautiful home and stay for our 60 birthday celebration! Thank you!
Praia da Luz is a lovely family orientated resort towards the quieter Western end of the Algarve coast. The beach is long and sandy and backed by a beautiful palm tree lined promenade. It has numerous restaurants, bars and shops. The larger town of Lagos is only a 10-minute drive away and this has a more cosmopolitan night-life along with a lovely marina, loads more restaurants and shops and several sandy beaches. The Algarve is famous for its fabulous golf courses and the closest are Boavista and Parque da floresta which are both a 5-10 min drive. As Villa Laranja is so close to all these amenities car hire is not essential although we would recommend it to allow exploration of the lovely Algarve coastline, mountains and towns. Villa Laranja is situated at the top of a hill so a car would be necessary for the elderly, small children or less mobile people.
Golf: Boavista golf course is very close to our villa, this is the newest & much praised course situated only 2km from the villa or 5 minute drive. It has other facilities there i.e. tennis, indoor pool & a spa. Also we are within a 20 min drive to 'Parque da Floresta' golf course, which also has extra facilities open to all i.e. tennis, lawn bowls, archery & a spa. The same distance is the 'Palmaras' golf course, to the East of Lagos, which is very picturesque & has 5 unique links holes along the dunes of Meia Praia beach & then there is the championship 'Penina' golf course which is approx. a 25 min drive away, as are the 3 courses at Silves. All the other courses around Quinta da Lago, Vale do Lobo & Villamoura are also very accessible (all within a 45 min. easy drive) now that there is the very convenient A22 motorway.
Please note - If you are using Google Earth to get a better idea of the villa and it's surroundings the current images shown are from 2006/7. The building site to the West was completely finished around 2009 including the introduction of a small playground just 30 seconds walk from the villa.
