Casa dos Cardos, Praia da Luz, Algarve

Property ref: PA117

Casa dos Cardos is set into the hillside behind the village of Praia da Luz, with spectacular views to the sea. The villa is a ten minute walk to the village centre and only slightly further to the beach. As it is on a hillside and the first 450 metres is an unmade road, a car is recommended for shopping and a torch is a good idea if walking in the evenings. 

The front door opens into a hall from where steps lead down to the light and airy living/dining room with pretty sofas, armchairs and a wood burning fire. From here doors lead onto a long, shaded terrace (also accessed from the bedrooms), an ideal spot for admiring the lovely views. There is a garden with lawn to the side of the villa. The pool is below the terrace and is walled and gated for safety, enjoying complete privacy from neighbours.
