Apartment in Benagil, Nr. Carvoeiro, Western Algarve, Portugal - Idyllic, Unspoilt Fishing Village, 5 Minutes Walk To Nearest Beach

Stunning apartment in an assembly of 13 privately owned properties. Very comfortable accommodation comprising of a large lounge/dining room, 2 bedrooms, kitchen, modern bathroom, own private balcony, roof terrace looking down to the sea and shared swimming pool and separate paddling pool.

Lovely property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Benagil. The property is only a short walk from the nearest (very pretty) beach and has a nice little pool shared with the neighbouring apartments.

The apartment was spotlessly clean, really well equipped and comfortably big enough for the 5 of us (2 adults, 3 kids).

We also went on the cave tour boat trip that runs from Benagil beach, which was great fun and good value.

Will recommend this place to friends and family without hesitation.

Wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a week at Benagil, a great place if you prefer to get away from the big resorts. We ate at the local restaurants, O Algar and O Pescador being ourt favourites. The apartment is well equipped, clean and located five minutes from Benagil beach and ten from Carvalho beach. There are lots of activities to do in the area and we enjoyed the boat trip from Benagil beach. We used the recommended taxi driver for trips to Silves and nearby Rocha Brava where we took a coach to Zoomarine, well worth a visit. If you like beautiful beaches with a quiet location, this apartment is for you.

We have just returned from a wonderful week in this property. Everything about it was first rate, located a short stroll from beautiful beaches and superb cliff top walks with breath taking views .Excellent restaurants nearby, the property had everything you need for a great break. Clean, comfortable and very well equipped. We breakfasted on the patio and chilled out on the roof terrace . Will definitely go back and hopefully stay longer next time!

A wonderful holiday escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly, lovely time, your apartment was just perfect so inviting and cosy. The views were fabulous from the roof terrace and I was gutted to leave it all behind! The kids pretty much had the pool to themselves, the weather was superb, so no complaints!We dined at the local restaurants which we'd recommend. This is a wonderful holiday escape. Thank you.
