Welcome to Luz do Sol

Villa Luz do Sol is situated in Vale Formoso (Beautiful Valley) in the hills above Almancil, south of Loulé, central Algarve, Portugal. Set in a private and peaceful location with a green and verdant garden, there is an abundance of bird life and a large pool with panoramic sea views. Ideal for family holidays with a family member with disabilities and wheelchair users, Luz do Sol is close to amenities and wheelchair accessible beaches, yet has rural appeal usually only found far inland. Ideally suited for families of all ages, the elderly, babies and teenagers, this unique property is for all the family to relax and enjoy a great holiday, amongst the Algarve’s amazing coastline and friendly culture.

The comfort of Luz do Sol is just two and a half hour’s flight from UK airports, and only a 15 minute drive from Faro airport. We will organise airport transfers in a wheelchair-accessible van, so your journey is stress-free and as short as possible. The Algarve has as many hours of sunshine as California, making the Algarve the perfect destination for the disabled and their families to enjoy without long-haul flying hours. For the ease of those that cannot transfer or are in heavy wheelchairs, once at the villa you will have an wheelchair accessible vehicle throughout your stay, complimentary for our guests. We also have an extensive range of mobility equipment included in the rental of the villa. If there is any mobility equipment not specified we can organise with a local mobility hire company for this to be delivered to Luz do Sol for your arrival. From the first contact we will talk through your requirements to arrange any special needs, for example organising a carer or sending specialised food.

There are also many activities for wheelchair users in the Algarve, and an extensive information booklet is kept at the villa, detailing wheelchair accessible beaches, boat trips and much more. It can be daunting when trying to organise a family holiday abroad with a member who is in a wheelchair or who has special needs, and we are here to make your holiday as stress-free as possible. From the moment you contact us until your departure with the accessible airport transfer, all you need to do is book your flights, then come and enjoy the comfort of Luz do Sol and Portugal’s beautiful Algarve coast, culture and sunshine.
