Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Caramujeira - Casa Milonga
4 bedrooms/3 bathrooms, Sleeps 10 - With AC, roof terrace and Large garden
This beautiful white villa offers peace, space and privacy in a flower and palm garden with panoramic ocean views.
The house is situated on a 6000 m2 plot in an area of rolling hills with vineyards, cork oak and almond trees.
The area where this villa is build, is one of the few strips close to the coast, where the original landscape of the Algarve is still there.
The beaches of Praia da Marinha and Benagil are within 1 km distance from the house. These beaches are located between famous rock formations and are therefore very clear and child friendly.
Praia da Marinha, voted as one of the top three of finest beaches in Europe, is just 900 meters away.
The beach of Benagil has a number of beautiful restaurant terraces for lunch or dinner including fresh seafood and vinho verde.
The villa has a private pool, Air-conditioning and a large living room including a fireplace.
The more busier resorts Carvoeiro and Armação de Pêra are 3 to 5 miles from the house
The villa is build in the heart of the Caramujeira.
Today it is forbidden by law to be built in the direct surroundings of the villa, this makes this place unique.
From several sun decks you can sit in front of the ocean. At night you will see the fisherman going out, while in early morning you can see them coming back.
When I am there myself I go at least once a visit to the beach when the fishermen arrive very early.
There you still can watch an ancient tradition of getting fish traded on the beach of Benagil.
The restaurant owners of neighboring towns are there often to buy their fresh fish.
O Chef Antonio's Restaurant in Carvoeiro prepare the best sole.
The nearest Supermarket - Intermarche - is approximatly a 5 minute drive.
Bigger shopping centers can be found on 15 to 20 minute drives.

About Raul ter Linden
Living in Holland, Amsterdam. Together with a family of 5 we enjoy the piece of the Vondelpark (biggest park in Amsterdam) at our left and the vibe of the city at our right.
In my job I need to travel a lot, however I always try to go to Benagil, Portugal, every single year once or twice.
For sun, food and relaxation it is the best place!
Raul ter Linden purchased this villa in 1995
Why Raul ter Linden chose Caramujeira
The villa is build by my parents (with a constructor of course). Due to this, the villa has its own character. Some of the pieces in the house have been moved over from Holland, including some toys i used to play with in my childhood.
The villa is build as one of the last ones in the surroundings as the government has designated the area as a region in which real estate development has to stop.
What makes this villa unique
The Villa has a panoramic overview over the ocean.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have recently stayed at Villa Milonga. A very lovely and spacious place. The villa isn't located in a town or touristic beach area and so is very peaceful and relaxing.
I would suggest going to the local beach Praia Marinha though as it is a beautiful beach and not too busy complete with a beach bar / restaurant.
I would definitely recommend the villa and we will try to comeback next year.
