Testimonial 2022 2023

” The property and location sounded great in the description but still managed to far exceed our expectations when arrived. The grounds are truly stunning. The house had everything we wanted and was spotlessly clean. Altought we checked in late due to flight times, Rosa came to meet us at the property and gave us a great  introduction to the grounds. The property is in a very peaceful location. I would definitely recommend.”

“The manager was very helpful and with a last minute booking and late check in. I was very impressed. His hostess was exceptional!!  Very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The place is wonderful, 4 villas surrounding a great pool area but still with a lots of privacy and wonderful grounds to stroll and enjoy the views. Would be an ideal location to host a large family reunion and rent the whole property. The price was great and met all our needs. Next time in the Algarve we’ll be back.”

” Private, beautiful, quiet. Really nice traditional portuguese with beautiful tiles, garden and pool area. Many areas to sit around the property and around the balcony. rosa let us in at 1 am due to flight being delayed and was still so friendly and gave us a full tour, at that time. cost a bit more than others but totally worth it for all this. They even have a drinking tap which we really appreciated. When it emptied Rosa brought another right away. Away from busy town. …”

“The place was amazing and Rosa received us really well. It was so nice to rest in the pool, have the meals looking at the ocean and be around animals and Ria. Definitely a place to come back.”

“Thank you for the wonderful stay we enjoyed at Villas Luz Romana.  The setting is just breathtaking – with wonderful views and such beautifully well maintained gardens.  My children loved the pool and the animals!  The villa was safe, secure, comfortable and well equipped – like a home from home for us.

Special thanks must go to Rosa who was so kind, welcoming and hard working. She really made our stay enjoyable.
We hope to return in the not too distant future!”

“We really enjoyed this place. The setting and environment is beautiful. Rosa is so helpful and kind. The nature, flowers, animals are a wonderful surprise. We think if you offered bicycles (for a fee) it would be a great idea since the bike paths are here. Anyway, we absolutely loved to being here! Thanks for everything.

« Great villa in a quite secure gated development with a private pool and very easy access to the town and many stunning beaches either by rented car or taxi (Bolt app was great). Has everything you might wish for as a relaxing family or couple getaway holiday. Very clean, lovely decor and all you need facilities. Rosa, the caretaker, is brilliant – made us feel at home from day one and helped with all the enquiries. Would definitely recommend and return back »

« The stay at Luz Romana was great. It is well situated near Tavira with diverse markets and supermarkets and Praia do Barril. Still, it is a really peaceful location far enough off the main road where you can come to rest. A very kind and hard-working couple looks after the houses, plants, garden, pool, the animals (chicken, geese, canary birds, guinea pigs, bunnies) and the big area down to the Ria Formosa. We loved to wander around this area, watch the animals and pick up one lemon or fig. The kitchen equipment is very complete. It could be renewed but that is really nitpicking. Everything works just well. The whole house is beautifully decorated, clean and from the moment we arrived and were welcomed by the housekeepers we felt at home. Also, there are many options where you can sit outside. And on top, there is a nice barbecue. The pool is big and clean. and you could spend the whole time there if you wanted to. All in all, definitely a place to recommend, and we can’t wait to come back! »

« Rosa and her husband are always available to give advise and to assist with anything that you might need. Very peaceful area in the middle of nature away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristic areas. »

Andrea  B2 June 2021 – Malta


“As villas Luz Romana excedem às nossas expectativas. Um sítio muito tranquilo e agradável,  com todos as condições necessárias. A Rosa e o Paulo foram sempre simpáticos e disponíveis para nos apoiar. Para melhorar a qualidade das instalações. sugerimos apenas a melhoria das espreguiçadeiras.”

« Mooie villa met zwembad op groot terrein, grenzend aan Rio Formosa. Prachtige plek en goede uitvalsbasis om de Algarve te verkennen. Communicatie met Karl prima en Rosa regelt het uitstekend ter plekke! »

Jacq & family A1 June 2021 – Netherlands


“I definitely recommend! The property is truly incredible. The property is a gorgeous farm, with amazing produce and you can walk right down to a beautiful dock on a large lagoon. My kids had so much to explore and we enjoyed our time there. The space was comfortable and clean. Very charming with lots of local details in the decor (pottery and art). Rosa and her husband were welcoming and helpful. We had the chance to have our kids play with theirs which was special for our children. Their daughters were just as delightful as the parents. The location is great if you don’t want to be around the tourist crowds in town, but can easily reach anything by car in just a few minutes. The pool and outdoor spaces are truly gorgeous! Very relaxing and lots to do. We would love to visit again in the future.“

“This place is one the most beautiful, relaxing and quiet place we have ever been. We felt at home immediately and enjoyed very much the house, the porch, the pool, the surrounding and wonderful villages and beaches around. Thank you to Karl and Rosa´s family with special thought for Matilde. Please don’t spread the news :)”

The tenants have really enjoyed the beauty of the villas and the area located on an ancient Roman Site.  It is a reminiscence of the past that shows the magnificence of the place. One of the most beautiful regions of the world where life is sweet all year long.  The Algarve is waiting for you!

  1. We stayed in TVA103 in June 2016 & had a wonderful time. We travelled with our 3 year old son, a friend and her 9 year old daughter. It was very family friendly with plenty of space for them to run around. There is also plenty of space between the villas so while it is communal/shared pool there is also a sense or privacy. Booking was very efficient and clear and there are no surprises (my memories are more beautiful than the good photos on this site)! While the grounds staff do not speak much English everything is straightforward and easy to use and they are very friendly. We enjoyed the grounds and the walk to the lagoon, a 10minute walk to the village, Santa Luzia is very pretty with amazing beaches by boat or train. We are already looking at booking for next year! My only observation is that A/C would be great to have. Many thanks

  2. We stayed there at the end of September, beginning of October 2022.

    Depending on what you are looking for, but for us , one of the most beautiful locations in Eastern Algarve.

    Also a big compliment to Rosa.

    Enthusiastic, helpful, motivated, hardworking and very nice.
