Wonderful Villa Julia
By Sue Denbury on 20-Jul-2019
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Villa Julia. Myself and husband, daughter, son in law and 2 grandsons aged 7 and 9.
The accommodation is just lovely, a real home from home, it is spotlessly clean, and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The lovely cleaning lady came 3 times each week and changed linen and towels as necessary. Nothing was too much trouble. The pool and outside space is perfect with the sails providing a nice shaded area when needed.
We had a problem with the air con unit in one of the bedrooms, (these things happen) but it was sorted out quickly and efficiently by the management company. We had no complaints.
The lovely owner has been very helpful and provided us with tips and recommendations via email. We could not have been looked after better, and would not hesitate to recommend Villa Julia. It was a holiday to remember and we will definitely be back!
Great villa - very comfortable!
By Alistair Sutherland on 04-Jul-2019
We've stayed in a number of villas in the area before and Villa Julia is simply the best equipped and the best maintained villa we have experienced. It truly is a home from home and has everything you could possibly need as well as being beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean.
Jan was wonderful. She is a great communicator and always responsive without being in any way intrusive.
The villa is very much what you see in the photos (maybe a little more spacious) and I'd highly recommend it as a place to stay to have a fantastic holiday in West Algarve. It is situated in a quiet, residential area in Luz and is private and peaceful. While Luz is definitely walkable, I'd always recommend a car to make the most of the wide range of options in Algarve, including the West coast.
The sun hits the pool early in the morning and stays throughout the day and there are plenty of shady areas to sit for those that want to stay out of the sun.
I can only repeat what others have already said. Villa Julia is a gem.

"The very best of our vacation"
By Andree on 02-Mar-2019
JAN, was easy to deal with, very pleasant , good communication of all sorts ...the villa was super clean, very well maintained, well appointed, the kitchen was meant for gourmet cooking in mind...
The area is very quiet for good night sleep. the heated pool was a plus to really feel on vacation.
Thank you again madame Jan.
Fabulous “Home from home” in the sun.
By The Mason Party on 14-Oct-2018
We spent a week at Villa Julia as a group of 8 adults, comprising family and friends. The substantial property is large enough for everybody to feel comfortable and still allow plenty of space if you need to have some quiet time. A very well equipped villa with good sized bedrooms. The outside space is great and it is well maintained. As we were there in October, we opted to have the pool heating on, which helped with the early morning swims. There is a choice of large, comfortable lounge/dining areas, as well as extras such as Sky TV, books, CD’s, let alone the fully equipped kitchen. The furnishing gives it a very homely feel, unlike other holiday homes we have stayed in.
The villa is in a quiet estate of other large villas, well situated for eating out and exploring the local area. You are able to sit in the garden, around the pool, or on any of the balconies that surround the villa, allowing you to follow the sun throughout the day, whilst enjoying some lovely views. You can walk into Luz and down to the sea front easily, which takes about 20 minutes.
Jan, the owner, is attentive and never hesitates to respond to any questions, or deal with problems you may have. We were also able to arrange for some provisions to be at the villa on arrival, which was a lovely touch.
The whole experience of our stay felt like one of luxury. We would highly recommend a stay here and hope to return again.
A Truly Luxurious Gem
By Penny Bruce on 06-Oct-2018
Superbly located, beautiful, truly luxurious, supremely comfortable, extremely well-equipped – and, instantly welcoming. These are some of the many superlatives that our party of six used to describe our recent stay at Villa Julia. The moment we arrived at this stunning white-walled villa, surrounded by verdant mature gardens, with the scent of herbs permeating the warm autumn air, we knew we would derive enormous benefit from the restorative powers of staying in this gem of a property located but a short distance from the beach, excellent restaurants and a well-stocked local supermarket. Whilst the location proved to be an excellent base for exploring Lagos and the Western Algarve, the temperature was also perfect for lunching, or lounging, on the terrace with a glass of delicious Portuguese wine in hand soaking up the sun in supreme comfort; or taking a dip in the perfectly-heated swimming pool. Furnished, with an interior designer's eye and equipped to an exceptionally high standard, the owners had thought of everything anyone could possible need and want during their stay. In fact, we were kept so well informed about every aspect of our stay that, even before we had arrived, we felt that Villa Julia would become a real home from home for the week. And, when the owners heard that one our guests had lost their passport on the way to the airport, they moved heaven and earth with advice and support. There can be no better recommendation than to say ‘we can’t wait for the day we can return to the gem that is Villa Julia’.
By Amy Derbyshire on 16-Aug-2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Julia, our party consisted of two families of four. The villa is extremely spacious and with various areas to take yourself off and relax it was one of the best villas I have ever stayed in. Jan the owner is extremely helpful and even organised restaurant reservations upon our request, prior to our arrival.
The kitchen was well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. The pool area is lovely and the upstairs terrace a great little escape should you want 5 minutes to yourself.
The walk into Luz is manageable and the local taxi firm (Luz Cars) is reasonably priced. We love Portugal and having stayed in various villas, it's very difficult to find one that ticks all the boxes especially for 8 people. Every single one of us loved our stay here and not one of us wanted to head home at the end of our holiday, we will definitely return to this villa soon.
By Kim Lyons on 06-Aug-2018
We spent 10 days at Villa Julia and have to say it’s the best villa we have stayed in. The villa is so well equipped there was absolutely everything there we needed. There are different areas of seating so you can have some peace and quiet , sun downer drinks or chat on the lovely couch next to the pool. We were a family of 6 adults and 2 children and felt we could have our own space if needed. The beds were really comfortable and we never ran out of hot water even when we all showered at the same time. The kitchen had every thing we needed even a pineapple cutter! Huge amount of cutlery, pans, glasses, cups etc.
There is a large grass area to the side and our grandson enjoyed playing football there. We had the pool heated and we used it every day especially our two grandchildren. Great electric cover for pool.
We found that although we needed a car for sightseeing we were quite happy to walk into luz and we even walked to Burgau. You can see the sea from the top balcony, great for a sundowner.
We did a lot of cooking and found it useful to have a American fridge/freezer great for ice and filtered water and another fridge for our wine beer etc.
The owner was in contact with us to make sure all was ok and had a visit from the management company to see we had settled in ok.
We felt totally at home and hope to return soon. I can highly recommend a stay here.
By Alisa B. on 15-Jul-2018
Had a fantastic time at Villa Julia. Great location. Would highly reccomend. Wonderful villa with everything you need for a perfect holiday. Jan and her management team were also brilliant. One of the best villas we’ve ever stayed in.
A beautiful home!
By Stephanie Murray on 06-May-2018
We travelled with three couples and this place was perfect as all the rooms are equally lovely. The home is as nice as it shows in pictures (not always the case), is well equipped and very roomy. The pool area has tons of sitting areas with very comfortable furniture and a barbecue - perfect for socializing or finding a quiet corner to read.
We were surprised and delighted that there was housecleaning every few days with our stay which was unexpected.
The location in Luz is exceptional with it's proximity to Sagres and many other great towns and beaches. Jan is most helpful with local information and makes the whole booking process easy.
We would definitely recommend this house and hope to return ourselves at some point.
Fabulous villa, excellent communication from owner & wonderful location
By Katie S on 12-Aug-2017
We stayed at Villa Julia for three weeks. Jan couldn't have been more helpful or attentive with instructions before we left & during our stay. The villa is an excellent location, with stunning beaches close by. Luz is a lovely village, Lagos is great for evenings out and only a short drive away. The villa was spacious & spotless when we arrived & the cleaner came three times a week & was v helpful. We'd highly recommend this villa!
Fantastic property in a fantastic location. Had everything we needed and more
By Mark D on 17-Jul-2017
Jan, the owner of the property was very helpful as soon as we made our enquiry to book.
The whole booking process and regular updates regarding the property was very impressive.
The property itself was everything we had hoped for and more. The photographs and the description on the site do look really impressive but to actually be there and live there was literally amazing. The property is in a fantastic location just a relatively short walk to the beautiful town of Praia da Luz and a very short drive to the even smaller but great little neighbourhood of Burgau.
Villa Julia had more than ample space for our family of 4. Kitchen and living areas all bright and big. Bedrooms also a very good size with balconies and amazing coastal views.
Pool was fantastic with sun all day if required and plenty of shaded areas with the eye catching sails providing this.
We had a wonderful lady who came 3 times a week to clean and change bedding etc.and we also had gardeners attending to keep the surrounding grounds - and there is a lot of surrounding ground - neat and tidy.
Overall a fantastic stay in a beautiful property in a beautiful location.
We will defineteley be back!
Relaxing & beautiful holiday home
By Anonymous on 19-Apr-2017
We've been to Villa Julia on a number of occasions - never disappointed. All the facilities for a family holiday, close to Praia de Luz & local beaches. But quiet & comfortable as a base for a short break, or for touring around the Algarve.
By Sarah A. Northants on 24-Oct-2016
Wonderful accommodation, home from home experience with all the appliances and furnishings impeccable and all equipment you could possibly need.
Nothing was too much trouble, would definitely recommend if you are looking for first class accommodation!
Relaxing Long Weekend
By Karen F on 11-Jun-2016
We had a fantastic stay at Villa Julia, we only wish we could have stayed longer the villa is superbly equipped and extremely comfortable with everything you could possibly need on hand . The outside space is great with lots of different areas to sit and relax and shade from the sun. I would definately recommend Villa Julia and Jan was so helpful throughout , we can't wait to return !!!
By Dave G on 12-Jul-2015
Villa Julia in Praia da LUZ was the perfect location for our family holiday. Villa Julia offers superb amenities with panoramic views overlooking the bay. Villa Julia is spotlessly clean and very well maintained. Location is perfect to relax by the pool or to explore the activities and attractions of the area. Spoilt for choice with dining in on one of the upper terraces or a variety of local restaurants giving a selection of good food and wine. Perfect!
It does not get better than this!
By Dave, Thetford, Norfolk on 08-Apr-2015
Its in the Title.
But let me break it down a little more. my wife and 12 year old son wanted a weeks break with absolutely No Hassle. A couple of weeks before our flights, we received a welcome/information pack from the villa owners, so when the day of our flights came this pack guided us straight to our car rental and perfect driving directions to the Villa.
It was obvious from the start, located off a main road, a winding road leading to the villa took us from the nearby town of Luz to the quiet but stunning surroundings of lovely properties where the Villa was located.
Upon driving through the electric gates into the beautiful gardens of our holiday home it lived up to all our expectations and more.
We immediately explored our accommodation and could not believe just how amazing it all was. A kitchen fit for kings, laundry room, all the home from home comforts and more. It would be easier to say what was not there than to list what was, but take it from me it had it all.
The Villa was also beautifully clean with a fantastic fresh smell all over.
It is clear to see that every room had been extremely well thought out, with fine attention to detail given. This also applies to the outside where a purpose brick chimney barbeque had been built, and the poolside furniture was again to the highest standards.
With no expense spared, we felt immediately comfortable and relaxed.
The pool was tested and the owners had put the heating on for us. To be honest we were not expecting great temperatures when we went, but were lucky enough to be granted them.
We ventured into the nearby Town of Luz only a couple of minutes by car and immediately found everything we were looking for, including great people who could not have done enough for us.
Over our week we ate at some restaurants recommended by the owners and they were great and well priced. In fact, in the Villa there is a local reference guide containing useful places to visit, eat etc.
I am lucky enough to say I have travelled extensively, but to have standards so high, and furnishings with so much thought I was blown away. Our family had the best week we have had in years, and it was all down to choosing a Villa that did everything it said it would.
I should point out that the owners could not have been more helpful, supplying as much help as you needed.
A Big Thank You to the owners, FANTASTIC!!!
By Jules, Ashford, Kent on 29-Jul-2014
This villa is absolutely beautiful and we can't recommend it highly enough. Every consideration has been taken into account for your stay, whether your a small family of three, as we were or a group there's plenty of room to have your own space or get together round the pool or dining areas. The whole villa has that personal feel about it. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. If this was my home, I wouldn't be sharing it with anyone...........perfect. We'll definately be booking again!
