Golf enthusiasts can enjoy many courses: Quinta do Gramacho and Vale da Pinta, plus Silves and Alvor are all close. For fun loving families both the Slide & Splash and Aqualand water parks are also within a ten minute drive.The village of Benagil has 5 restaurants all with in walking distance to the villa, which serve locally caught fresh seafood. Kayaking and boat excursions offering dolphin watching or viewing the world’s most photographed sea caves and much more on offer, from your doorstep.

Everything about the Benagil Beach House, Casa Gemeos is wonderful. Just as described. The location is perfect. The deck/balcony enormous, allowing you to sit right over a glorious beach which is just 30 steps down below. Don't expect nightlife in Benagil but do expect views of soaring cliffs and sea, the constant sound of waves lapping up on the shore, incredible location right over the beach with no one else in view after 7, and a fabulous casa with everything you need. The house is big, very well maintained, very clean, beds are great, kitchen has everything possible that you need, plenty of linens for beds, kitchen and bathrooms, and also plenty of beach towels. We only used one half of the available space. We'd highly recommend this place even though we'd prefer to keep it to ourselves. We have already booked to go back. There are a handful of good restaurants within walking distance. One is only 20 ft away. The bigger town Carvoeira is less than 10 minute drive and there is a big supermarket there with a great fish counter. The owner's representative is gracious and very quick to respond to any questions. There is a good guidebook in the house to answer a lot too. We'd recommend the boat ride off the beach that takes you to the caves. Really worth it. All in all, we could not have picked a better spot for a quiet, relaxing vacation. One of the best villas we've ever rented abroad. Thanks.
