About Jeanette - Manageress

I am Roger Benou, and my wife is Lynne Benou, originally from the UK but now residing in the Algarve where I have come annually for holidays for years. We finally made the move in 2008 and have enjoyed it tremendously because of the weather, lovely people and relaxed way of life. The local food is fresh and healthy and the outdoor lifestyle has contributed to that too. We love swimming in the sea in summer and relaxing on the white beaches. We have 2 small children and feel relaxed in this area as it is quite safe. The community look out for each other and everyone is ready with a smile and a hello!

Jeanette - Manageress purchased this villa in 1975

Why Jeanette - Manageress chose Carvoeiro area

This villa was bought by my parents in 1975 when Carvoeiro was just a rural fishing village. Since then Carvoeiro has become a lovely seaside town with a wonderful mix of locals and tourists. The various sea views, cliff formations breathtaking cliff tops and boat trips are a very few minutes walk away! The scuba diving possibles are amazing. Fishing off the cliffs is 5 min walk away. The view from the villa roof is spectacular. As with the town, the original villa has been changed. Modern amenities and comfortable open plan spaces with huge glass sliding doors letting the light flood in. At night the night sky filled with stars is glorious to behold from the bedroom or lounge. The jacuzzi we had put in 5 years ago and is glorious to relax in and enjoy the sun or the stars. It is private and quiet and yet a 5 minute walk to the cluster of fabulous restaurants in Algar Seco or the coastal walk along the wooden boardwalk along the cliff tops down to the town square and the heart of the town. The villa and its location are top class.

What makes this villa unique

It is quiet and private yet close to the town and the life of the town. The villa is amazing. The beds are comfortable. The jacuzzi has a booster function which has therapeutic effects. The villa is close to the cliff top walk, best viewing spots, beaches and playground. Carvoeiro is central to all the must see places like Silves, Monchique, Portimao, Villa Moura. Activities like water parks, golf courses, tennis club, eco tourism and diving schools are close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

13 October 2014:

Hi Lynne and Roger just wanted to say thanks for the fantastic stay at you house. Location, views from roof and the house itself were everything we wanted and a lot more. The welcome you gave us was a lovely touch. As for the jacuzzi just right after a walk up the hills. We would love to come again and will be letting friends and family know about your lovely house. Thanks again Sam & Matt Banks, UK

27 October 2014:

Just wanted to let you know we had a lovely week in your villa.

The roof terrace with its sea views is fantastic. We had breakfast up there

every morning and sat up there watching the lighthouse light in the evenings.

The weather was wonderful and we certainly took advantage of the Jacuzzi as it

was so hot.

The location was excellent with restaurants just around the corner and the

village and the beach less than 10 minutes walk.

Apart from that the only problem was were there such a short time we didn't see

everything so we are thinking we just might have to come back again next year.

Do you have any idea of your prices for next year yet? Probably around the same

Lynne and Roger's house has everything you need, is spacious, very comfortable and in a great location. There are a a number of outside areas where you can enjoy a meal or relax with a sundowner. Its not in the busy streets of Carvoeiro, yet its within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and a 10 minute walk to the beach, along a scenic boardwalk.

We received a warm welcome and they are available to help if anything goes wrong - nothing did, and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly.

We love this place....

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in Recanto do Brasil and we enjoyed it as much as the first time round. The villa itself is very spacious with a fabulous roof terrace to enjoy the sun during the day and the sunset in the evening (with a nice glass of Portuguese wine...). Location is perfect, barely a 10 minute walk to the centre of Carvoeiro and one route to the centre is down the famous 'Restaurant Hill' where there's a great selection of places to eat/drink. Lynne and Roger are great hosts, very friendly and welcoming and available if needed (which we did the first time we stayed when my husband managed to lock us out of the villa). Make sure you pay a visit to their bar, Jailhouse, where you can expect the same welcome and some great live music. We will definitely be back again

a beautiful stay in a good surrounding

  • 3 of 5

The house has everything you need- fully equipped kitchen, nice living room, 3 bedrooms, a beautiful view from the roof terasse and a nice whirpool. It was just perfect for us. It's not far away from supermarkets and restaurant but not in the busy life :-)

The owners are very nice.

Perfekte Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir verbrachten wunderschöne 2 Wochen in diesem Ferienhaus vom 07.05.2015- 21.05.2015. Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen Wohngegend und doch ist alles fussläufig zu erreichen . Das Haus hat alles was man braucht um einen entspannten Urlaub zu verbringen. Der einzige Kritikpunkt ist der manchmal nervige Shuttle Service vom benachbartem algar seco park. Deren Fahrer hielten manchmal eine halbe Stunde mit laufenden Motor auf dem benachbarten Parkplatz . Unseren Mietwagen brauchten wir nur für größere Einkäufe und Ausflüge . Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war unkompliziert und sehr nett. Danke Lynne und Roger , wir sind schon am überlegen zu welcher Zeit wir noch mal eine Woche bei euch verbringen und diesmal bestimmt mit einem Besuch im jailhouse...
