This is an attractive, slightly quirky, villa, on the cliff top between Luz and Burgau. 20 minute walk along cliff path to Burgau, where there are excellent restaurants open even in the off-season (we were there late March). 35 min walk to Luz; more bars and restaurants here but I prefer Burgau. 10 min drive to Lagos (pronounced Lar-gosh) where you can buy fresh fish & veg from the market every day but Sunday (and don't buy on Monday as fishermen don't fish on Sundays) Lagos has loads of supermarkets too.
But what about the villa? Quiet location, gorgeous views from garden and roof terrace, not overlooked, plenty of space to move sun beds around to be in the sun and out of the wind. Heating was a bit erratic, but we generally fired up the log stove each night for a lovely ambiance. Large rooms made the villa feel spacious and comfortable. Clean and tidy, with a very helpful house manager on call to help if needed.
Loved this place, recommend highly.
Casa Agatha is a great vacation villa at a calm place between Burgau and Luz. It has large and clean rooms and a nice pool and everything is as described. The house manager is very helpful and responsive. It gets my full recommendation.
The only negative things to say are, that the way description to the villa is outdated and contains many mistakes. It took one additional hour to find the street of the villa and another hour to find the villa itself. It was impossible to find it based on the description because it contains non-existing (or no more existing) waypoints, typos, wrong distances and outdated descriptions. I was glad I knew the area. Otherwise we would have got lost... We had to call the house manager to finally find the villa at a totally different place than described in the directions.
Of course it is not a good start to spent 2 hours just with searching the villa, after you spent a day with flying and with a one hour transfer from the airport. But this could be easily resolved by writing correct and updated way directions to the villa.
But again, the villa is fine and highly recommended. Just ask for a correct way description if you don't want to start your vacations like we did.
