Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms/3 bathrooms, Sleeps 10 - With AC, roof terrace and Large garden

This beautiful white villa offers peace, space and privacy in a flower and palm garden with panoramic ocean views.

The house is situated on a 6000 m2 plot in an area of rolling hills with vineyards, cork oak and almond trees.

The area where this villa is build, is one of the few strips close to the coast, where the original landscape of the Algarve is still there.

Beach:

The beaches of Praia da Marinha and Benagil are within 1 km distance from the house. These beaches are located between famous rock formations and are therefore very clear and child friendly.

Praia da Marinha, voted as one of the top three of finest beaches in Europe, is just 900 meters away.

The beach of Benagil has a number of beautiful restaurant terraces for lunch or dinner including fresh seafood and vinho verde.

The villa has a private pool, Air-conditioning and a large living room including a fireplace.

The more busier resorts Carvoeiro and Armação de Pêra are 3 to 5 miles from the house

The villa is build in the heart of the Caramujeira.

Today it is forbidden by law to be built in the direct surroundings of the villa, this makes this place unique.

From several sun decks you can sit in front of the ocean. At night you will see the fisherman going out, while in early morning you can see them coming back.

When I am there myself I go at least once a visit to the beach when the fishermen arrive very early.

There you still can watch an ancient tradition of getting fish traded on the beach of Benagil.

The restaurant owners of neighboring towns are there often to buy their fresh fish.

O Chef Antonio's Restaurant in Carvoeiro prepare the best sole.

The nearest Supermarket - Intermarche - is approximatly a 5 minute drive.

Bigger shopping centers can be found on 15 to 20 minute drives.

About Raul ter Linden

Living in Holland, Amsterdam. Together with a family of 5 we enjoy the piece of the Vondelpark (biggest park in Amsterdam) at our left and the vibe of the city at our right.

In my job I need to travel a lot, however I always try to go to Benagil, Portugal, every single year once or twice.

For sun, food and relaxation it is the best place!

Raul ter Linden purchased this villa in 1995

Why Raul ter Linden chose Carvoeiro / Lagoa region

The villa is build by my parents (with a constructor of course). Due to this, the villa has its own character. Some of the pieces in the house have been moved over from Holland, including some toys i used to play with in my childhood.

The villa is build as one of the last ones in the surroundings as the government has designated the area as a region in which real estate development has to stop.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa has a panoramic overview over the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have recently stayed at Villa Milonga. A very lovely and spacious place. The villa isn't located in a town or touristic beach area and so is very peaceful and relaxing.



I would suggest going to the local beach Praia Marinha though as it is a beautiful beach and not too busy complete with a beach bar / restaurant.



I would definitely recommend the villa and we will try to comeback next year.

Excellent Family Villa

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of six adults, grown up children and partners and the villa was a perfect size to spread out and have your own space. The outside space and gardens were amazing and made you feel like you had your own little bit of heaven. There was also a great BBQ which we used on several occasions, eating out until late and playing games. The gardens and flowers were beautiful and were lovingly maintained. The location of the villa means a car is essential for getting around although the beach is about 1.5km away and easy to walk/jog to. Only two of the 4 bedrooms had air conditioning and it was very hot in those bedrooms. Also could have done with more bath towels - one each for each week was a bit tight (although we did use the washing machine and facilities. Apart from that a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday. We used the villa as a base to explore the Algarve and spent the other days round the pool or on the beach. The local beaches are lovely and quite select, not commercial at all which we loved. The local restaurants down at Benegil Beach were also amazing - great sea food and other selections.

Very impressive villa in a lovely part of Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean, comfortable, luxury. We were very lucky I think in that the weather was superb for the whole of our mid-April week. Temperature around 23-25 daily, Felt very spoiled. The pool and sea temperatures were around 19, which is chilly but nice. The boat trip along the coast from Benagil is not to be missed. Very little contact with the owner or the owner's rep but little contact was required. Very smooth.

Wonderful family week away

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five with three adult boys so were looking for somewhere with a pool, close to various beaches that could provide adventure and relatively close to towns for restaurants and culture. We found the perfect place at Casa Milonga - a large villa that could easily accommodate 10 people with all the facilities to make it a very comfortable and happy stay. The pool was large enough for the family and the garden was spectacular. The nearest beach was about a 15 minute fast walk along a dirt track which had boats for hire and a couple of restaurants nearby. We did however tend to drive to other beaches which were about 10-15 minutes. The shopping was in the nearest town of Lagoa and can highly recommend a visit to Silves to see the Castle and museum. Raul was very helpful with regards directions and recommendations for the area. We had a lovely time and would happily have spent a second week there.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 2 week stay at Casa Milonga. It is one of the nicest villas we have stayed in.

The communication from the owner from first booking was prompt and welcoming and this continued before and after our stay.

We were warmly welcomed by Marrion who had been waiting a while due to the long queue for our car hire. She was very understanding and kept in touch with us by text after we landed. She was very friendly and lovely to chat to.

The house was spotlessly clean and well prepared and the owner had provided some snacks and refreshments for us, a lovely gesture!

The rooms were large and nicely furnished, with lovely wall decorations and light shades, it had such a warm home from home feel about it.

We were very surprised to find that one of the double bedrooms had a kitchen area attached including fridge, cooker, sink, kettle and washing machine. This was perfect as my brother and his partner had joined our family of 5 for this holiday. They had their own entrance and terrace and could have some privacy.

The kitchen was large enough for us all with plenty of everything including 2 coffee makers. We only realised on the last day that the oven is also a microwave :) There is a utility room with sink, second fridge and washer/dryer. There are 2 hairdryers. The dining and lounge area were spacious with plenty of seating for us all. The TV was useful at times to have the children take a break from the hottest midday sun and for the boys to watch the Euros! We wished we had stayed one more day to celebrate Portugal winning!

Another highlight was the beautiful gardens, plants and flowers. The grounds are huge with amazing views out to sea from the roof terrace. A couple of gardeners came round but they were not at all intrusive. Also the pool was cleaned on a number of occasions and the cleaners did a great job.

The pool was fantastic and we were all in every day..a great way to cool down from the 30 degree heat. There were plenty of sunbeds complete with padded mattresses and a large sun canopy. There is total privacy around the pool area and you are not overlooked at all, it is so peaceful.

The nearest beach of Benagil is a 5 min drive away and we took a boat trip around the caves from there which was lovely. In Carvoeiro town I would recommend Jota Lita restaurant, we had two delicious meals there.

We fell in love with Casa Milonga, thank you Raul and Marrion, we hope to see you again in the future.

Best Regards

The Dicksons

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem

The view is fantastic.

There is a great and large barbecue area, including outside seating.

The pool is absolutely huge and very lovely located in the overwhelming flower garden.

The villa itself is fantastic too, there is lots of space, even when you are with 10 together.

A staff member gave us lots of local information and we found a list of very nice places to explore too.

The nearby beaches are dazzling.

We will be back for another holiday for sure!

Rebecca.

Big villa for 2 to 10 people.

Private swimming pool.

Near to several beaches.

This beautiful white villa offers peace, space and privacy in a flower and palm garden with panoramic ocean views. The house is situated on a 6000 m2 plot in an area of rolling hills with vineyards, cork oak and almond trees.

The area where this villa is build, is one of the few strips close to the coast, where the original landscape of the Algarve is still visible.

Once you are on your own terrace, far from mass tourism, you can enjoy the views on the ocean. Imagine a delicious lunch on a shady terrace with a cool breeze of the ocean or sipping on a glass of vinho verde while looking a the stars...

SPECIAL

Casa Milonga is suitable for up to ten people, for example, two families on a holiday together, grandparents and grandchildren or couples.

The villa has four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

By closing a double door down the hall you’re able to create two separate apartments with private entrance, terrace, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Perfect fot two families or couples who want to go on holiday together but also appreciate some privacy.

LOCATION

Casa Milonga is 55 km. from Faro airport (45 minutes drive), near the picturesque fishing village Benagil and in between the resorts of Carvoeiro and Armação de Pêra.

BEACH FUN

The beaches of Praia da Marinha and Benagil are within 1 km distance from the house. These beaches are located between famous rock formations and are therefore very clear and child friendly.

Praia da Marinha, voted as one of the top three of finest beaches in Europe, is just 900 meters away.

The beach of Benagil has a number of beautiful restaurant terraces for lunch or dinner including fresh seafood and vinho verde.

A bit further away you will find Praia Albandeira. This beach is also ideal for children.

The more busier resorts Carvoeiro and Armação de Pêra are five to eight kilometers from the house.
