Guestbook comments from the owner

Der perfekte Urlaub von Anfang bis zum Ende. Schon die Ankunft hat alle Erwartungen uebertroffen.

Die Auffahrt zu dem Haus ist sehr schoen angelegt, man sieht den wunderschoen angelegten Garten und fuehlt gleich das Urlaubsfeeling. In unseren Zimmern fanden wir Willkommenspakete vor mit Erfrischungen und regionalen Snacks.

Unsere Kinder entdeckten den Pool und waren den ganzen Uralub nicht mehr rauszukriegen . Ab und zu waren wir dann auch erlaubt den Pool mit der Jacuzzi Funktion zu nutzen.

Es sind ausreichend Sonnenliegen vorhanden und man hat zwei Terassen wo man sich bequem zu jeder Tageszeit aufhalten kann.

Der Grill ist ueberdacht mit einem Kamin wo man selbst ein BBQ fuer eine grosse Gruppe rauchfrei anrichten kann. Natuerlich haben wir auch die Region erkundet und nach Lagos waren wir in 10 Minuten wo es viele Einkaufsmoeglichkeiten, Restaurants und Shops gibt. Die Leute sind alle sehr sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

An unserem vorletztem Abend sind wir auf Anraten von Maria der Managerin von Casa Contente zu dem nahegelegenem Restaurant O' Cangalho gegangen wo wir wahrscheinlich ohne die Connection von Maria keinen Tisch bekommen haetten. Es ist ein traditioneles Fado Restaurant wo der Besitzer mit einer Saengerin Fado gesungen hat. Das Essen war sagenhaft und man hat sich wirklich wie bei MAMA gefuehlt.

Alles in einem ein sehr schoener Uralub und es wird auf jeden Fall einen Perfekten Urlaub 2.0 geben :)))

Kurzes Fazit: So ein Haus will ich daheim haben.

Excelentes Vacaciones

  • 5 of 5

Casa Contente dispone de cuanto se necesita para disfrutar en familia o con amigos de unas buenas vacaciones. María, una mujer risueña, se encarga de la casa y te ayudará en cuanto necesites. Casa Contente se encuentra en Bensafrin una zona muy tranquila del Algarve pero a la vez un sitio estratégico para moverte en coche y conocer Lagos, Sagres, Cabo San Vicente, Portimao, Faro, Silves...

Une belle et agréable location

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné deux semaines à la Casa Contente en famille avec jeunes adultes. c’est une très belle villa spacieuse avec un point de vue superbe sur les montagnes et Bensafrim. La villa est propre et entourée d’un magnifique jardin (de fleurs et cactus divers) d’une piscine extérieure avec jacuzzi très agréable et un coin douche (eau chaude) très appréciable. Et pour terminer, d’un coin barbecue extérieur, extra pour faire cuire vos diverses grillades. Vous trouverez autour des petits restaurant indiqué sur la brochure, n’hésitez pas ils sont très bons et un super plus pour le restaurant Caramba à Barao de sao, très bon accueil et nourriture excellente avec un très bon rapport qualité/prix.

A tout juste 8 km, vous trouverez Lagos avec un centre ville très animé (boutiques, restaurants etc…) surtout le soir. Evidemment, sa magnifique plage de sable fin et de l’autre côté ses criques et falaises. Pour nous le coin de l’Algarve typique que nous avons préféré.

Excellente communication du propriétaire, Harry est très cordial.

Un séjour agréable dans un bel environnement.

Une location idéale

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné 2 semaines à Casa Contente (4 adultes + 3 ados). Très facile de s'organiser de manière indépendante pour 2 familles. Belle piscine. Maison à l'écart de l'ambiance balnéaire, mais très bien située pour découvrir les plages de la côte Ouest et de la côte Sud, proche de Lagos (autoroute), et de l'arrière pays pour randonner.

Villa + piscine très bien entretenues durant notre séjour.

Harry est tout à fait disponible pour organiser et répondre à nos questions.

Plus le charme de l'Algarve, les plages de sable fin, l'eau translucide .... et même pas froide!

Wunderschöner Urlaub im entspannten Umfeld

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschöner Urlaub mit Familie und Freunden im Casa Contente, der keine wünsche offen ließ. Es war wirklich alles zur vollsten Zufriedenheit und alles hat gepasst. Sehr schöne, entspannte Atmosphäre , sehr sauberes Haus. Der Außenbereich mit Pool und Grillplatz läd zum verweilen ein. WIr haben fast jeden Tag frischen Fisch vom Fischmarkt in Lagos zubereitet.

Sehr ruhig gelegen, sehr gut für Familien und zum Erholen geeignet.

Ein großer Dank geht auch an Maria & Joao, die sich immer sehr liebevoll um das Haus und die Anlage gekümmert haben.

Sehr schöner Urlaub, wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen.

Lovely house and garden

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Casa Contente with my husband and teenage son. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The villa is very clean and comfortable - loved the light and airy upstairs sitting room and the views from the veranda of the hills, and the small town of Bensafrim further down the road. The villa is very private and the garden is lovely - stuffed with gigantic cactus plants that in Britain we only see as little pot plants sitting on windowsills. Beautiful bougainvillea gracing the patio area by the pool. Excellent outdoor barbeque. My son brought his surf board and we spent each day travelling to different beaches for the surfing. The villa was well placed for visiting beaches on the north west and west coast. Favourite surf beaches were Pria da Luz which also had a string of beach side cafes, Tonul at Sagres and Praia do Amado. Great pottery at Sagres. Went to Lagos for a shopping day. Also visited Praia da Marinha - a stunning limestone cliff and stacks beach - not a beach for surfing, but great for snorkelling. Excellent communications from the owner, Harry. All in all, a very relaxing holiday - great villa - great beaches - great!

Bensafrim is the largest village in the Lagos department, in the great Algarve region, characterized by its charming typical white houses with a coloured bar around windows and doors, with the traditional Algarve’s chimneys, showing off the big Moorish influence, not only because of the proximity with the North of Africa, but also by the many years of Moorish occupancy of the territory.

In fact, this territory presents a very ancient human occupancy, as it is observable in the many archaeological vestiges of the region, like the Cabeça do Rochedo Menhir or a Iron Age necropolis that was later inhabited by Romans. Bensafrim was also inhabited by Moors that left an important legacy in all the Algarve region.

The village is proud of its Mother Church and the many rural legacies of an agricultural lifestyle history, with many elements such as agricultural instruments, wells, watermills, among many others.

Bensafrim has been able to maintain its rural feature, producing many of the Algarve’s traditional products, such as honey, figs, almonds, cattle or chalk, surviving graciously to the urban and touristic development of the Algarve region in the past decades.
