Why IPC Management chose Benagil
Benagil is the most quiet, traditional, fishing village of Algarve. This bungalow has been refurnished in an unspoilt location of the Algarve. Benagil is famous for its sea caves beneath cliffs with amazing ocean views.

Amazing home! perfect view.
We travelled all the way to Benagil from the United States primarily because of how beautiful this view and home are. Athe reality exceeded our expectations. With 40 feet of private balcony, a short staircase directly to the beach and a thoughtfully decorated home, our vacation was amazing. The location couldn’t be better.
Very highly recommended. We rent vacation homes frequently and this one is a good value and one of our very favorites.
Thank you for your review. Good to know you enjoyed our bungalow at Benagil beach.
Beautiful and peaceful
If you want a peaceful and relaxed beach holiday this house is perfect. It is a very comfortable house with an outside area you can sit in when the beach gets too busy. Benagil itself is very pretty although it does get very crowded (where doesn’t in August?!). As you can escape the crowds by retreating to the house it is not too much of a problem. There are a number of restaurants within close walking distance although there is no shop. We did not hire a car so took an uber to the nearest supermarket - this was very easy. There are steps up to the house from the beach or down to the house from the road above. It’s location gives the house a secluded feeling even when it is busy at the beach. The house has everything you need and felt very spacious (we were 2 adults 2 children). We would definitely return.
This property is Amazing. The view from the terrace & the waves breaking on the beach below makes for a memorable stay. The beach offers canoeing and paddle boarding. It was pretty busy each day, but we always found a space. There are 5 restaurants in the village, of varying quality. There are a few things to be aware of though....
1. The property is split in to 2 separate units, with 2 front doors 2 kitchen/living areas and a bedroom each. There is an internal door which connects the two sides, but it opens into bedroom number one.if you choose to use this to access all areas of the house, you care basically turing bedroom number 1 into a hallway and the person using the bedroom will have very little privacy.
2. There was only 1 key. This caused us problems as it was difficult to ensure each side of the house had access to the key for locking up doors at night time, and reopening them in the morning, without disturbing whom ever was asleep in bedroom 1...
3. There is only 1 aircon unit, in bedroom two.
4. Access to the house is not easy! You must either climb steps from the beach area below, or decend from a footpath above. This is very difficult with suitcases & grocerys.
5. There is no shop in Benagil, at all! (this is not a reflection on the lovely cottage, but it was tiresome for us, with no car, to have to try & organise a taxi to go to a supermarket, numerous times for basic things like water and toilet roll.
6. The terrace area looses the sun each day around 3.30pm as the sun slips behind the house. At this point you must move to the beach if you want to stay in the sun.
We've all agreed we would love to stay in this house again, except next time we'd be better prepared!
Wonderful location right on the beach. House layout was somewhat awkward regarding sleeping arrangements for 3 children, as the second double bedroom is located quite far away from the living room sofa bed. House is well equipped, though lighting in bathrooms could definitely be improved. Parking is provided a short walk away in the village, but we got used to the steps to the house. The terrace is such a beautiful place to enjoy outdoor meals and the bbq was great. Overall an amazing setting and very peaceful when we visited in May. The property manager, Mena, was very helpful and pleasant.
Thank you for your review! Hope to see you soon!
Absolutely amazing location
We couldn't have wished for a better location. Quick and easy access to local towns and amenities. Great restaurants within walking distance. Lots to do and see. The home is well equipped with all you need. Beds are very comfortable! Thank you for the great stay
Thank you so much! It was a pleasure to have you!
Everything about the Benagil Beach House, Casa Gemeos is wonderful. Just as described. The location is perfect. The deck/balcony enormous, allowing you to sit right over a glorious beach which is just 30 steps down below. Don't expect nightlife in Benagil but do expect views of soaring cliffs and sea, the constant sound of waves lapping up on the shore, incredible location right over the beach with no one else in view after 7, and a fabulous casa with everything you need. The house is big, very well maintained, very clean, beds are great, kitchen has everything possible that you need, plenty of linens for beds, kitchen and bathrooms, and also plenty of beach towels. We only used one half of the available space. We'd highly recommend this place even though we'd prefer to keep it to ourselves. We have already booked to go back. There are a handful of good restaurants within walking distance. One is only 20 ft away. The bigger town Carvoeira is less than 10 minute drive and there is a big supermarket there with a great fish counter. The owner's representative is gracious and very quick to respond to any questions. There is a good guidebook in the house to answer a lot too. We'd recommend the boat ride off the beach that takes you to the caves. Really worth it. All in all, we could not have picked a better spot for a quiet, relaxing vacation. One of the best villas we've ever rented abroad. Thanks.
Thank you so much Judith for your kind review.
It was a pleasure to have you in Casa Gemeos and look forward to see you again!
See you soon!
1 minutes walk to Praia de Benagil and 10 minute walk to Praia do Carvalho.
Benagil have several restaurants. Also the town of Carvoeiro has a vast number of restaurants that you can choose from. Intermarche is the local large supermarket on the main road to Carvoeiro from Lagoa, this should be able to cater all your needs.
