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.

Weather in Bensafrim

Bensafrim enjoys beautiful temperate weather punctuated with abundant sunshine. The months between May and October all experience average temperatures above 20°C. 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. Rainfall should not be expected at this time of year. But winter is ushered in with some showers and a drop in temperatures from the twenties into the teens.

Travel to Bensafrim

Most major airlines plying the European skies will have flights, if only seasonal flights to the Faro Airport. On arrival here, travellers will be about an hour and a half from Lagos. To get there they can take the bus or a taxi. It is also plausible to jet into Portugal through the capital’s airport, the Lisbon Portela Airport and then connect to Lagos by bus. This four-hour trip should bring tourists to within minutes of their Bensafrim holiday homes.

Gorgeous property, wouldn’t hesitate to come again

5 of 5
The villa was stunning, spacious, furnished to a great standard, comfortable and is located in a great spot where you have total privacy but with easy access to the town and all amenities. The pool was lovely and the fact that the house had child gates fitted throughout meant it was perfectly safe for our toddler twins. Gemma was so friendly and helpful, whatever we needed, she attended to straight away and had taken the time to leave fresh bread, milk, wine, cheese and ham for our arrival which meant I could feed the children after the flight without a desperate dash to the shop. We have been to so many countries and this was truly our favourite holiday by far, the villa was just so inviting with lots of natural light coming in and we were so sad to leave
