About the property

Villa in Bensafrim, Lagos, Western Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location 10 Minute Drive from Lagos

Villa Gecko is located at Jardin de Bensafrim, which is a small collection of houses built between 2000 and 2002, situated in the countryside just off the Bensafrim Road. It is single storey and spacious internally. It has three large double bedrooms, two bathrooms, large kitchen, dining room and lounge. It has air-conditioning to all the main rooms. Externally it has a private drive, extensive patios, and a 10m x 5m swimming pool, with external shower and WC. It has well kept gardens. It is about 8 minutes drive from Lagos, which is an interesting, busy and historic town. It boasts a famous marina, beautiful beaches, and a range of supermarkets, smaller shops, bars and restaurants. A car is essential as Jardim de Bensafrim is a quiet countryside location. The choice of activities and places to visit and explore in the immediate area is exceptional, and its location is a perfect base to explore the beaches and the more remote areas of the Western Algarve.
