Benagil House Rental Photos and Description

Pool, sea views from garden and balcony and roof terrace and 2 bedrooms.

A fantastic holiday venue near Benagil, a lovely small fishing village with a number of superb tfish and trrestaurants. Casa Atlantico is in a unique position between 2 beautiful beaches, Carvalho and Benagil, and the whole coastline is unspoilt for walkers with stunning views on walks to Marinha and Praia de Rochas. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy Val de Milho, an established 9 hole, par 3 course which is only 5 minutes away. Other local entertainment is available at Aqualand and Slide and Splash water parks. Pony trekking, cycle hire, tennis, quad biking also. The fishermen of Benagil also offer sightseeing boat trips along the coast between Carvoiero and Armacao de Pera to visit enchanting caves and grottoes.

The house has superb sea views from the private garden, bedroom balcony and roof terrace. The patio terrace has a barbecue shaded by the porch and bougainvillea.

This idyllic setting is ideal for couples, families with children and groups of friends for summer or longer winter l

Benagil in the Algarve.: The Algarve has a Mediterranean climate with hot dry sunny summers and warm mild winters. Spring and autumn are also sunny with cooler evenings. It enjoys over 300 sunshine days a year. In the winter the days are sunny and cooler. One of the delights of the Algarve and the immediate coast at Benagil is that the sea breeze is refreshing in the hot summer. The weather is rarely grey, if there is a shower then it passes quickly and the sun soon emerges again. The light is superb, reflecting off the sea, cliffs and beaches, it is uplifting at all times of the year. The house, as well as having superb sea and natural parkland views, also has wonderful dizzying sunsets.

Please ask if you would like to see more photographs of our home and its surroundings.

Local environment: The Algarve offers a wide range of entertainment and activities with something to suit everyone. From Casa Atlantico it is possible to walk along the Coastal path west to Praia de Rocha or East to Armacao de Pera. You will see spectacular cliffs and golden beaches, watch the fishing and yachting vessels, see the birds circling, smell the perfumed Mediterranean vegetation and visit the old churches like Senora da Rocha, and other landmarks along the way. Some beaches are unique as they are accessible only from the sea; others such as the unspoilt beaches of Praia de Marinha, Praia de Barraquinho and Praia da Albandeira can be approached by almost hidden pathways and are never very crowded. As well as walking there are opportunities for fishing, golf, scuba diving, parasurfing, sailing, horse-riding and photography.

Local activities: Benagil and Carvoeira have fishing festivals as one of their long-standing fishing traditions. Further inland the villages of Porches, Pera, and Ferragudo maintain their old world charm with local crafts such as pottery and ceramics being widely available. The fascinating Moorish castle at Silves and markets at Lagoa and Carvoiera are also worth a visit as is the mountain area of Monchique with its spas and copper crafts. Larger settlements like Vilamoura, Faro, Armacao, Portimao and Lagos are no more than 30 minutes away with their bustling old quarters, markets, lively squares and restaurants and cafes. There is much of historic and cultural interest to explore.

It is possible to get to Lisbon in 3 hours, Seville in 2.5hours and Tavira, Cordoba and Gibraltar/Morocco are also accessible.The route along the west coast of Portugal is a so a possibility by car as is exploring inland and northern Portugal.

Most of the towns and cities mentioned can also be asccessed by a train ride.

Wonderful Home on Cliffs in Algarve

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have travelled to the Algarve twice a year for over 15 years. During that period of time we have stayed at a number of properties. This year, (2016) we stayed at Casa Atlantico, in Benagil. This was a marvelous residence, on the cliffs. It was spotlessly clean, with all of the modern amenities one would wish for. The property managers were first rate. The owner of the home was a pleasure to deal with. We hope to return in the fall. We can't say enough good things about this excellent rental.

Loved the Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our visit to the Algarve. Benagil is a small community that was very relaxing to return to after exploring the region or great to just stay around the area for the day. The pool was large and often we were there by ourselves. We enjoyed Casa Atlantico, it met all our needs plus more. The roof top terrace was a favorite, the property was clean and tidy, the trails for the cliff walks were just minutes away, there was easy access to get to the beach and restaurants. The property is well described and what we expected. The manager when needed was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again and would recommend to others. We really enjoyed this end of the road tucked away location.

Terrific Property in an Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 children ages 6 and 8) just stayed at Casa Atlantico for 6 days, and we could not be happier. The property was clean and well equipped and was a very nice size for our family. We loved the rooftop patio, and enjoyed breakfasts and even one dinner up top with it's spectacular views of the ocean. We also loved having a small BBQ/grill in the front yard for cooking.

Our young boys loved the shared swimming pool which was well maintained, and also the 2 beaches that are within a short walk from the property. Be careful of the nearby cliffs if you have young children, but if you are careful, the cliffs offer a wonderful view/experience for a family stroll.

The onsite property management was helpful and offered good suggestions for day trip options (we did the Wildwatch Dolphin tour out of Ferragudo which was excellent). Information and instructions that were sent with confirmation were very detailed, and the information provided inside the unit on appliances and local services were a great help.

We highly recommend this property for those seeking an affordable place with spectacular sea views and access. Thank you Angela!

You can't beat this!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best holiday- the beaches were gorgeous- we were on Carvalho one day, Benagil the next. Fab fish restaurants and exciting boat trips.The neighbours were friendly and help was always on hand from the managers nearby. We could see the sea from the pool which felt like our own private pool. The house is very tastefully decorated with lovely views of the Atlantic- it is very well named- and would suit couples or families. We would like to recommend Casa Atlantico very highly. For a special occasion or a short break- this is the place!

The best holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

Casa Atlantico is a little piece of heaven. The house was perfect-we are a couple and we had my elderly afther with us for our holiday. The views were magnificent from every floor, the outlook over the nature reserve and the quiet neighbourhood afforded peace yet plenty of interest. It is possible to walk directly onto the Algarve coastal path and to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Benagil and Carvalho within 2 minutes walk. We also enjoyed boat trips and quad bike tours. Our elderly father also had a super time- the downstairs cloakroom and easy front access making him relaxed and restful an we all enjoyed sitting by the pool.

You will find every mod con in the house, including a washing machine and air con. For the first time in along history of holidaying abroad, we have found somewhere ' we will definitely look forward to returning to!' We thoroughly recommend this lovely Benagil house.

Great accommodation in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in May 2009. It proved to be a great choice for our first holiday in Portugal, both for the quality of the accommodation and its location on the Algarve. We have 2 children under 5, so felt a villa with a pool would be a little risky, so this property on this small development, with its shared pool, secure small grassy garden, and large roof terrace was ideal (although as the pool's unheated, you'd need to use it during the summer months to be truly comfortable). The property itself is newly built and is kitted out with every modern convenience you could need, all to a very high standard and condition. There are also fabulous ocean views from almost every room. The development managers live nearby to offer any assistance you might need.

The village of Benagil is totally unspoilt by tourism development, and there are 4 or 5 restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the property. However, you do need a car to get to the nearest town, Carvoeiro, which has dozens of restaurants, gift shops, supermarket etc, as well as to explore towns and attractions elsewhere in the Algarve. Benagil also benefits from probably the best two beaches in Portugal; both within a few minutes walk of the property, (although access often requires steep paths and steps).

So in summary: Great for families of all ages - even those with young kids - and especially for those who don't like big bland resorts. If you're looking for a high-spec holiday rental with nearby sandy beaches, cliff-top walks and local fish restaurants, and are happy to hire a car to get around, then this property gets our full recommendation.

Car: recommended

This stunning Benagil/Carvoeiro coastal location is ideal for walking, golf, pony trekking, sailing, surfing and swimming. The villages of Porches, Pera, Ferragudo and Armacao de Pera maintain their old world charm with local crafts such as pottery and ceramics being widely available. The fascinating Moorish castle at Silves and markets at Lagoa and Carvoiero are also worth a visit as is the mountain area of Monchique with its spas and copper crafts. Larger settlements like Vilamoura, Faro, Armacao, Portimao and Lagos are no more than 30 minutes away with their bustling old quarters, markets, lively squares and restaurants and cafes. There is much of historic interest to explore in the Algarve. For those seeking even further adventure, Lisbon and Seville are no more that two and a half hours way by motorway and there are many organised one, two or three day visits to these place as well as to Morocco. There is information in the villa about such trips.

Golf: As well as being a stone’s throw from two golden sandy beaches, golf enthusiasts will enjoy Val de Milho, an established 9 hole, par 3 course which is only 5 minutes away. The Quinta do Gramacho golf course and Val da Pinta, where you will find the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, are within a ten minute drive.
