Make a holiday villa in Bensafrim your home away from home

Algarve is one of Portugal’s better known tourist hotspots and to its west is the amazing city of Lagos. This locale has a rich history stretching back over two thousand years. Traces of Lagos’ eventful past is seen in the remains of ancient constructions which both the history buff and generally curious tourist will enjoy. While ferreting out the delights of this attraction-laden town, tourists can find brilliant holiday accommodation in Bensafrim, one of the six parishes that make up Lagos. This former Arab settlement is a haven of Portuguese culture, hosting a lively annual fair. Holiday villas in Bensafrim are a great idea because they offer quick access to Lagos’ most interesting spots and many of them have private pools beside which holidaymakers can enjoy the summer sun. Transport links to this laid back locale have been recently spruced up to allow easy commuting to Lagos and beyond.

Things to do

-Historical sites: Among the many reminders of Lagos’ historical largesse are the 16th century walls that surround the old town. This calls to mind the time when this city was Algarve’s administrative nerve centre. There is also an ancient gate that has watchtowers beside it, which were part of constructions put up to protect the city from invaders. Religion has always played a central role in Portuguese culture, a fact to which ancient churches such as the 15th century Igreja da Santa Maria attest to.

-Beaches: Those booking holiday homes in Bensafrim holiday homes should however not think their destination is nothing more than a long history lesson. There are beautiful beaches such as the Praia da Batata from which one can savour the tranquillity of the whispering Atlantic and the warmth of the sun. There are also paths leading to the tops of cliffs which yield mind-blowing panoramas. At the Meia Praia holidaymakers will be spoilt for choice in beachside bars.

-Water sports: With the warm, clear waters of the Atlantic at their mercy, visitors can indulge in any number of water sports. Thrill-seekers can hire kayaks from a number of places near the beach and paddle through the ocean. The Lagos coastline is full of interesting geological features which Bensafrim holiday home inhabitants can explore on interesting boat rides along the shore. Dolphins are usually spotted during these tours.

-City square: The Praça de Gil Eanes is a place where people gather for various forms of entertainment and visitors who stop by there will catch the odd street showman balancing from a unicycle. If there is an important footy game featuring the national team, they will find hundreds of excited locals gathered before big outdoor screens cheering on Ronaldo and Co.

-Food and drink: By the time they’re leaving their holiday rentals in Bensafrim, tourists will have fallen in love with Portuguese cuisine thanks to the sumptuous fare offered by establishments such as Nah Nah Bah and Don Toro Angus Steak House. On top of delicious cuts to suit a wide range of tastes, they offer a nice, intimate ambiance to hungry patrons.

Of these June, July and August are predictably the hottest, enjoying average highs of 25 to 26°C. This is relatively mild, though there are days temperatures surpass the 30°C mark.

The only one negative for us was the size of the double bed only a 4" adult ! We will be returning next year with grandchildren and parents Thanks for lovely holiday

Set up in the hill of funchal, transport would be desirable although I would imagine taxi's would be approximately €5-6 into Lagos. An ideal location to explore from with a fantastic beach at praia De Luz just a 5 minute drive away or travelling in the opposite direction you'll find the truly amazing beaches and coves of Alvor a must visit whilst travelling in the Algarve. Elke and her family are lovely host's living on site who you know are there but leave you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings. Very helpful, including making themselves available at 10pm to print off our return boarding passes and offering the use of their computer to book tickets to local attractions. We travelled to fewolagos at the end of August for 10 nights with our 8 year old daughter who was in heaven with a generous sized pool just feet from the front door. The lodge is a genuine little gem fully equipped with everything you would need, and was absolutely spotless. The pool is cleaned regularly and the grounds are immaculate. The only 1 thing it could benefit from would be an outlet for the portable air conditioning unit as it had to go out through the door. That being said we WILL be returning... Definitely the best small family holiday experience we've had!! Thank you to the 'Stolker's'

The villa is in a good location but recommend car hire. The villa was cleaned during our stay and regular towel change. Would recommend and definitely return again!
