If you're looking for some of Europe's finest beaches then this charming villa in the beautiful wine region of Caramujeira, just a short drive from Praia da Marinha and Praia de Benagil is right on the money. Inside, it's traditional and stylish. There's a considered use of homely touches, from the whicker decor and local photography to the antique urn and small stove fireplace, so you'll feel right at home from the get-go. Now, correct us if we're wrong, but summer in the Algarve is best spent outdoors. And, at this pretty villa, you'll have a choice of several outdoor sitting and dining areas to bask in the warm weather. While away sun-soaked afternoons in the hammock, sip poncha cocktails on the sun loungers, and fire up the barbecue in the outdoor kitchen for a lazy lunch on the shady terrace. When it's time to head out, head to Benagil for hidden sea caves and picturesque hiking trails between the limestone cliffs, just a short drive from your doorstep. If you’d like to soak up the local history and culture, the lively village of Carvoeiro, where you'll find many feel-good eateries, boutique shops and hip bars, is just 5 kilometres away.

Local guide


About Lagoa

Lagoa is the coast with the most. Despite being one of the smaller regions, it boasts the lion's share of the Algarve's most magnificent beaches. Take your pick from Albandeira, Benagil and Carvoeiro – the waters are crystal clear, and the red sandstone sea cliffs are dramatic wherever you choose to lay down your towel. Praia da Marinha deserves a special mention for its magnificent rock arch formations that grace...
