If Vila Margarida is too large for your group, or indeed if it is not large enough for your group and you would need further accommodation nearby, you may wish to consider our other property in Praia da Luz. Apartamento Azul is a modern 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, 5 minutes walk from the beach (3 minutes walk from Vila Margarida) which can comfortably sleep 6 plus cot. It has two sea facing balconies and one overlooking the pool.

It is in a small development of only 8 apartments sharing the use of a lovely pool and stunning roof terrace.

Booking Terms and Payment

Payment Notes and Booking Terms

We are able to accept payment in Pounds Sterling or Euros by either cheque or bank transfer.

We can also accept payment by credit card via PAYPAL, but will need to charge an additional 4.5% on the rental rate as that is the cost to us of accepting payment in this way.

Our booking terms are 25% deposit at booking. This deposit is non-refundable and we therefore strongly advise that guests cover the holiday cost by taking out travel insurance at the time of booking. The balance of the rental cost is due 8 weeks before the start of the rental.

A security deposit of £400 is collected either by bank transfer to Fiona Harris 2 weeks before the start of your holiday or by our local management agents in cash (Euros or Sterling) when they visit you at the start of your holiday. This deposit is refunded shortly after your return home either by bank transfer from Fiona or sterling cheque from the management company depending on the method by which you paid it initially (within 3 weeks of the end of the rental).

In the event of a group of younger adults booking Vila Margarida (where the groups ages are mid 20s or younger) the security deposit amount is increased to £1000.

Other Services

We have local management agents Rosemary Reynolds Property Management who will visit you at the start of your holiday.They will answer any questions that arise and can advise on local events etc. 

There is a regular maid service and the linen is changed weekly.

The gardeners visit once a week-normally on a Wednesday afternoon. The pool is serviced weekly.

There is a telephone for incoming calls and local calls e.g. to restaurants and taxi companies.

All bed linen and towels for indoor use are provided. Pools for beach and pool use may be requested at an additional charge for laundry, otherwise please bring your own towels for poolside and beach use.

The villa is available to you from 14.00 on the day of arrival and should be vacated by 10.00 on the departure day. This is to allow time for the maid to prepare the villa between groups. It is possible that the maid may still be working at 14.00, but the villa is available to the new guests from that time.

Cot and high chair hire can be organised for you.
The cost of these are:cot hire €25 per week and high chair hire €10 per week.

If you wish to accommodate an additional one or two children on a folding bed rather than a cot then hire of  folding beds can be arranged. The cost of folding bed hire is €75 per week.

A food and supplies delivery from a local supermarket can be arranged for your arrival. They make no charge for delivery, but will only accept orders valued at €27 or over
