About David James

My wife and I fell in love with Portugal, particularly the area around Lagos. We built two beautiful houses just outside the city where we enjoy the ambiance of the city and the beauty of the countryside. We are pleased to invite our visitors to be our neighbours for a while in sunny Algarve.

David James purchased this villa in 2007

Why David James chose Bensafrim

The area combines the convience of near by city of Lagos with many fantastic restaurants and super-markets. There are many first class golf courses within 10-15 mins drive and numerous unspoild beaches nearby. The area around the house abounds with many varieties of bird life.

What makes this villa unique

After enjoying sand, sea, golfing, fishing, sailing...etc imagine returning to this beautiful villa in private surroundings. Enjoy a glass of wine while you watch the Sun go down and you can have a clear view of the Milky Way at night. In the morning you will be awakened by the sound of birdsong. If you are lucky,in the evening you can even hear a nightingale sing.

Holiday september 2015

  • 4 of 5

The fantastic villa is located in the hills near Lagos.The place and the villa are excellent, the villa has it all, the pool is incredibly fine. And it's breathtaking quiet. The views of the hills and villages, is particularly beautiful. For entrepreneurs like us a place to really rest. But Lagos, a beautiful historic town with restaurants and shops is also just a 10-minute drive away. In short, a villa for a wonderful holiday. David and Joanne, Thanks for living in your villa.

Beautiful villa and wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

Joanne and David run a beautiful home in this peaceful location. We loved the area which , although so quiet, is only a short distance away from the restaurants and beaches near Lagos.

Everything had been thought of for our comfort and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The villa is spacious and well looked after and well equipped.

I would thoroughly recommend.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Situated about a ten minute drive from the lovely town of Lagos, this villa was just about perfect. We were looking for somewhere quiet and away from it all yet within striking distance of the beach, good restaurants and supermarkets. The villa certainly has the 'wow' is immaculately clean, well equipped and beautifully presented whilst still retaining a homely feel. We loved it so much, we spent most of our time here relaxing by the pool on the sunloungers, reading and soaking up the sun and the view! The Intermarche in Lagos has a fantastic selection of food - and an amazing fish counter - so we enjoyed many bbqs on the bespoke bbq "bar" next to the pool. Wonderful. We also ate out at some fabulous local restaurants and explored a little of the area. My more intrepid husband and son booked surfing lessons which they said were very professionally taught and easily bookable. As a holiday destination, we felt that it was pretty much perfect as there is so much to do, should you feel so inclined, and David and Joanne's beautiful villa is as good as you are going to find. We cannot recommend the villa or our lovely hosts highly enough!

From Meia Praia the 5km long open sandy beach that stretches from Lagos Marina to the Alvor Estuary, to the secluded unspoilt beaches of the West Coast. Miles of cliff top coastal walks, coves and grottos ,present some of the best beaches in Europe.


Faro Airport is approx 1 hours drive. From Lisbon around 3 hours. Regular trains and coach are available from Faro to Lagos.The train station is located directly behind the Lagos Marina, taxi from here to the villa is easy,but car rental is recommened.


10 minutes to drive from Lagos.

Further Details:

There are many good local restaurants which have their own rustic charm and also many sophisticated ones. Water Slide Parks are within easy reach, Lagos Zoo is just around the corner, and a great favourite for children. It is possible to take a day boat cruise around the coast and there are riding schools very close to our villa.
