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.

Nice property with magnificent view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Casa Contente very much. There is a wonderful garden with a lot of privacy and the children enjoyed playing there very much. They liked catching lizards and other small animals. On the lawn they enjoyed playing soccer. The beautiful pool has a very natural appearance and the bubble-seat in it was the children’s favourite.

The house is very spacious, wit his two living rooms, two bathrooms and 3 bedrooms.

The house is only a ten minute drive from Lagos and the fine beaches in and near Lagos. The west coast of the Algarve, with its stunning beaches, is also reached within half an hour.

We thank Maria, the manager, for all she has done for us and Harry who was ready to answer any question and supplied us with useful information on Casa Contente and its surroundings.

We will come again!

Peaceful and relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

Casa Contente is set in lovely mature gardens which give complete privacy. It has 2 covered terraces, perfect for dining. With the 2 living areas it offers plenty of space for guests. It is situated in an ideal location for access to both the south and west coasts and the mountain area. There are ample shops and restaurants in nearby Lagos, about 10 minutes drive. On arrival we were concerned about the villa's position near the roundabout and road but the traffic is very light and we rarely heard much noise.

Wonderfull location

  • 5 of 5

when we arrived at Casa Comtente we find all as beautifull as we see it on the Pictures.

A very lovely Hous with a beautifull Garden. A fantastic pool. All that in a very privacy atmosphere. The best Location for Family and friends. The unbelivable Service in Cleaning, Garden and Poolkeeping will spend us a very nice time there. And if the noise is to silent you must only go 10 minutes to Largos. Also the beautifull Beaches of the west coast will touch our hearts.

A comfortable, lazy holiday in a beautiful garden

  • 4 of 5

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my stay at Casa Contente. The villa had everything I needed and would be spacious enough for quite a large family.

It was a pleasure to swim in the pool and sit outside admiring the beautiful garden. I was lucky with the weather - hot but with a pleasant breeze. The busy beaches and bright lights are a short drive away; in contrast the historic sights and delightful small beaches on both the south and west coast are worth exploring.

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...

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.
