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 Benagil
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. The garden is the hidden gem of the villa. It has so many colours and it smells lovely all year round.

We rented Casa Milonga for 2 weeks. Loved the location and the view. Beds were comfortable and shopping and restaurants were conveniently located close by. The wide variety of birds visiting the garden was a treat. Poolside BBQs were the best! Very relaxing. Thank you to Marrion for easy check in.
An older, large villa with bags of character out in the countryside but within easy access of the beaches. Serene with only bird song to disturb you.
Lovely setting for a relaxing holiday away from the crowds
Casa Milonga was the perfect setting to explore the nearby beaches and cliffs of the Algarve. The house was very comfortable for 6 couples, the outdoor terrace and pool was the perfect spot to relax and catch up with friends, read and enjoy the beautiful garden overlooking the sea.
Beautiful villa in best location I have ever stayed in 40 years. of knowing the area. Peru.
Beautiful villa with comfortable beds and the best terrace and outside space I have encountered. It is very rare to get a view this good but very private. A little piece of the old Algarve with all mod cons. We will be back. Really charming villa agent and very good staff who keep villa spotless. Don’t miss out on this one.!
We were two families, ten of us in all. We all had a wonderful holiday for two weeks. The pool area (with plenty of sun loungers) and covered veranda (with a large table and plenty of chairs) were ideal and we spent most of our time between these areas! The gardens were lovely with mature plants and old trees, a gorgeous environment. The kitchen was well equipped and the lounge area comfy for the kids to watch the odd movie- although, would not have been able to accommodate all 10 of us. All the beds were super comfy and meant we struggled to get our teenagers to rouse themselves in the mornings! In an ideal world, we could have done with one more bathroom.
The position of the villa is great with views over the sea and a 15 minute walk into Benagil across tracks through the protected countryside. The nearest restaurants were a very short walk down the road and the owner of ‘The Old Fashioned’ and his staff were very friendly. Apollonia supermarket in Lagoa was brilliant and a regular haunt during our stay!
We enjoyed the surrounding area and beaches there (early starts to avoid the crowds on the beaches) a must do trip is the 1hr 15min boat trip around the caves from Benagil beach. If there are 10 of you it makes sense to charter a boat privately through them and you get a drink and snacks included for €300 (2018 prices) do book.
We also enjoyed Tavira- we ate at the tres Palmieras - a local haunt, turn up early to avoid the queues and eat as much BBQ fish as you can in a refectory style setting. Our whole bill, for 10 of us including drinks came to under €100- great value and an adventure.
Silves was another highlight with ancient streets and buildings, so unspoilt.
Take a boat trip for the day from Vilamoura- enjoy a bbq on a beach and kayak around the caves, great fun.
The Algarve is a wonderful destination and Casa Milonga the perfect base camp. Thank you Raul.
Beautiful villa in a beautiful spot! Tranquil and off the beaten track- perfect!
This villa is perfect for a family including children and babies! The kitchen is well equipped, beds very comfortable and bathrooms/showers are very satisfactory. The surroundings of this villa are stunning. The pool perfect size, a little on the fresh cool side but otherwise perfect after a bit of sun baving to cool off. A well built BBQ and outdoor seating area for a large family to all enjoy dinning together. We were very happy with this choice of villa for our family holiday and would love to come back again!
The location, although a car is recommended - there are 2 beautiful beaches within 20 min walking distances - all down hill on the way there.

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 visible.
Once you are on your own terrace, far from mass tourism, you can enjoy the views on the ocean. Imagine a delicious lunch on a shady terrace with a cool breeze of the ocean or sipping on a glass of vinho verde while looking a the stars...
