As the chill of fall approached in New England we extended our summer in Luz at Casa da Figueira, the perfect getaway. Private lush grounds, plenty of space to share with another couple (or two), a well appointed kitchen, clean and up to date, lovely swimming pool, peaceful and quiet but just a few minutes walk from a fabulous beach, shops and many wonderful restaurants. It was our second visit and this stay surpassed all our fond memories of four years ago. Some short drives took us to a variety of destinations for exploring the coastal towns, castles and forts, and mountains of the Algarve. But one could just remain at the Casa and have a wonderful time, enhanced by the attentions of Amelia who came every weekday to clean, do our laundry and act as hostess. This is a “wow!” property with exceptional charm and amenities. We will definitely be back!!
