The host is on the local and if anyone has any problem we give our number for emergencies. As soon as the guests arrive, the Host will be waiting for you, just like the Check Out. We offer a good service. We can advise places, restaurants, beaches, everything we have near us for you to visit. To arrive from the airport the only option is to come by car or bus.

Nett, ruhig, abseits vom Trubel, aber in der Nähe der Küste

  • 4 of 5

Eine Ferienwohnung mit sehr angenehmer Atmosphäre und sehr ruhig, obwohl alle 5 Wohnungen des Hauses belegt waren. Die Gastgeber Ana und Fernando sind ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit und bei Fragen immer erreichbar.

Die Lage in Bensafrim ist super, denn sowohl Lagos und die umliegenden Strände der Südküste als auch einige Strände der rauheren Westküste sind in ca. 20 Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen, bei Lagos gibt es auch größere Supermärkte. Ansonsten sind die kleinen Läden im Dorf zu Fuß in ca 15 Minuten erreichbar.

Die Wohnung war sehr sauber, die Betten (Matratzen) sind gut, was ja im gegenteiligen Fall durchaus den Urlaub vermiesen kann. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, mit allem Notwendigen für 4 Personen (allerdings auch nicht mehr, so dass man tatsächlich nach jeder Mahlzeit spülen muss ;-) Internet ist vorhanden und war auch für die jugendlichen Mitreisenden zufriedenstellend.

Die Einrichtung insgesamt hat einen etwas eigenen, leicht altertümlichen Charme und könnte durchaus eine kleine Verjüngung vertragen, aber da wir immer auf dem Balkon gegessen und uns ansonsten wenig in der Wohnung aufgehalten haben, fällt das nicht stark ins Gewicht.

Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder hier mieten!

A wonderful place -Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Web spend 8 days at "herdade do castenheira" and had a wonderful time.

We emjoyed the quietness and the countryside in an authentic place.

Beaches are only 15 minutes away by car.

I enjoyed very much talking with the owners, very welcoming.

Séjour parfait, l'appartement est très pratique, très propre, très clair, avec une belle vue. Nous étions 4 dont 2 enfants.

L'endroit est très tranquille, idéal pour se reposer, à l'écart de la foule et du tourisme assez développé à Lagos.

Le domaine est très grand, et proche de petits commerces au village de Bensafrim.

C'est pratique également pour visiter l'Algarve et profiter des innombrables plages (praia da bordeira, dona Ana, etc etc).

Fernando et Ana sont très accueillants et j'ai beaucoup apprécié leur compagnie , toujours très discrète, et nos conversations sur le Portugal.

Nous reviendrons sûrement !
