The townhouse Casa Sol is located directly on the cliffs of the Atlantic coast of Benagil. On the front line of the Resort Terraços de Benagil, the house has a unique roof top terrace with fantastic sea views and one amazing panorama of the coast line and his beaches and also the communal pool.
On the ground floor there is the living room with air conditioning, dining table, comfortable sofa set and TV, a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove and a guest toilet. A staircase leads up to the two bedrooms one with two single beds and the other with a double bed, both equipped with air conditioning. One of the bedrooms has a small balcony. Two regional tiled bathrooms with tub or shower complete the first floor.
The climb continues up to the private roof terrace, which is furnished with seating furniture and loungers.
The entrance of the house includes a covered terrace with seats and table for nice lunches or a BBQ with friends and family. In the immediate neighborhood there are two beautiful beaches, Carvalho and Benagil (only three walking minutes away) and some nice fish restaurants.
From here you can set off for beautiful coastal and beach walks.
The popular, nearby resort of Carvoeiro with restaurants, bars, supermarkets, post office, medical facilities and other great beaches is easily accessible by car. Shops and supermarket such as Apolónia and Intermarché are at the entrance of Carvoeiro/ Lagoa.
Faro Airport is approximately 60 kilometers away.
Antonio’s place was very nice, quiet, relaxing and perfect for the end of our 10 anniversary trip. He was kind to leave us a bottle of Rosé in the fridge to celebrate which was a nice touch!!!! The only thing I think was the beds were a little hard for our style but not a super big deal when you are enjoying everything else. Easy access to the prettiest beaches in the Algarve and so much to see. Great location. Will be back hopefully sooner than later!!!! Thanks so much for everything!!!!
Antonio is a great host and very accommodating. Great place, amazing location. The trail on the cliffs behind the house was one of the best hikes (amazing sunset scenery) Don’t listen to other tourists advise, the view on the cliffs doesn’t get better than this, especially if you walk north on the trail. The pool is great (although, some one stole my $21 sunscreen lotion ☹️) and great roof top, just watch your head going up there..lol Def coming back! Thanks Antonio for everything!
My husband and I spent 4 nights at Casa Sol and had a fabulous and relaxing time! The sunrises and sunsets are amazing! You can catch them from the rooftop patio, which is where we spent a lot of our time. Antonio was a great host as well. We met him a day or two after we checked in; per Portugal law, he had to make a copy of one of our passports since we were staying more than 72 hours. He was fluent in English and was able to provide some great recommendations. The house is as described and clean; the reviews I read prior to going are accurate. We cooked and washed laundry while there. There are utensils for cooking, but none of the "basics" such as salt/pepper/etc. We were provided bathroom basics, such as toilet paper, towels and soap. We asked Antonio about towels to bring to the pool and beach and he brought them the next day. We walked to the handful of restaurants that are nearby; I highly recommend O Pescador! We chose this location so we could hike/walk the 7 Hanging Valleys Trail and it did not disappoint! The townhome is literally on the trail, excellent location! You will need to rent a car though, to get there and to get to any other towns/the grocery store. Also, the townhome is in a very quiet area, so don't expect there to be lots of clubs/nightlife close by (which was fine with us). It's in a complex of around 20 townhomes (don't quote me on the number!) and they were all very quiet or seemed to be empty. It was a very clean area and felt extremely safe. The townhome is close to one of the beaches that launches the boats for the cave tours of the most well known caves. Make sure you take a boat tour of the caves as early as you can on the trip! We waited until the fourth day we were there and the water was too rough for the boats to go out. We got lucky and the boats were running on the day we checked out of the townhome so we got to go, but we wished we had done the boat tour first thing when we got there, so eliminate the chance of not being able to go on the tour. One thing to note: the view of the sunset from the rooftop patio is gorgeous but it is a slightly obstructed view. There is another townhome attached and to the west of this one. Meaning, if you look south, facing the ocean, you can see the gorgeous colors of the sunset over the water and if you look west, you look through/over another townhome's rooftop patio to see the sunset. The view, colors, and pictures we took are all still amazing, but it is something you should be aware of. The sunset, equally beautiful, was an unobstructed view.
This place has amazing views, is in between two amazing beaches and has the Seven Valley hiking trail at your door step! Beautiful swimming pool in a gated area and lovely restaurants within walking distance.
We booked this condo last minute, and we are so happy we did! The view of the ocean from the rooftop terrace was spectacular, and where we spent most of our time when at the condo. The inside of the condo was also very nice; one of the bedrooms had a nice balcony, while the other had a large window to let the sea breeze in. Beds were comfortable, and bathrooms and kitchen were clean. The place was lovely and the view was spectacular. The location was great, too: it sat on top of the hill, and you could take a walking path down to Benagil beach in ~5-10 mins. We also walked to Marinha Beach from the condo in ~45 mins. We did find the front door auto-locks so make sure you have the key when closing the door! Antonio was very responsive, and helped us resolve the issue of leaving the key inside right away. Overall, we loved it and would stay here again next time we come back.
Great location, clean. No personal contact with the host, only by email. We found the apartment to be minimally stocked - no coffee, oil, spices etc. Also only 2 towels for three days on a holiday to the beach seems a bit light.
While we did not meet Antonio in person, he was always responsive to our questions. Friendly and polite. Check in was by lock pad. Space inside is quite comfortable, with 2 beds and 2.5 baths and a sunny rooftop terrace with spectacular ocean views and moonlit at night. This home has real potential to be a 5 star vacation spot if certain upgrades can be made to kitchen, hot water going on and off and basic supplies like salt, pepper, sugar. The nearest grocery store is about 12 minutes drive so stocking up is easy. But most people come to the Algarve for the beaches and this home has an amazing location. Walk about 15 minutes to the west and you hit Carvalho with spectacular caves and tunnels and quieter vibe. Walk down the hill 10 minutes to the east and you’re in Benagil, with kayak trips to the legendary cave. This home is actually on the path of the Seven Hanging Valleys hiking trail. Other great beaches are all within 20 mins drive. Local restaurants are quite good. The shared pool is a great bonus for a relaxing swim. All in all, highly recommended for an Algarve vacation.
Nice place in a very good location Don't ask for extra bed, it's bad) Sofa is good and I also slept on a balcony in hammock - amazing!
Great location for walking to dinner and t one beach but in a very high traffic tourist area. Loved the outdoor space and pool. Lots of space and great for families. Bad thing was it Smelled like smoke and made all of our clothes smell
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Sol. It’s an extremely comfortable house in an amazing location. The roof terrace has such fantastic sea views, it’s lovely. The house has a couple of areas to eat outside too so there’s lots of options. We are a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 teenagers and there was lots of space for us. António was a very friendly and approachable host, he answered our messages very quickly and had lots of information about the local area. The house is very close to the pool and we could always get a sunbed but you had the option of relaxing at the house too. Our favourite local restaurant was Casa Lamy, the food was very good and the waiters were very charming. just a 5 minute walk from the house. We did a boat tour at Benagil beach and hired kayaks to see the caves in more detail, you have to see these caves-amazing. There are a few big supermarkets, 10 minute drive away.
Logement mitoyen spacieux et confortable situé à deux pas de deux plages. Le chemin qui longe le littoral est accessible en sortant de la residence. La vue sur le toit terrasse est splendide. L’endroit est également calme, et la voiture est nécessaire pour faire ses courses. Merci à Antonio pour son accueil et ses conseils sur les visites et les restaurants de la région.
Location cannot be beat! Communication with our host Antonio was perfect, and quick responses. The place itself is big with a wonderful patio and rooftop with unbelievable views. This unit is right next to the pool and the complex is so close to many restaurants, make reservations. The pictures you see are as good or better in real life, we loved this place.
A estadia na Casa Sol foi incrível ! Desde o atendimento impecável do Antônio até a vista maravilhosa do terraço ! Não podemos deixar de citar a excelente limpeza ! Foi perfeita a estadia! Altamente recomendo.
Merci à Antonio pour son accueil et ses conseils..l emplacement de la maison est formidable..beaucoup de balades à faire juste à côté de la maison...les falaises sont impressionnantes...nous avons adoré notre séjour. Pour information il est nécessaire d avoir une voiture pour les commodités...
Super!!! If you want a truly magical beach vacation in the Algarve, this is the place! Antonio is a great host and keeps a neat and comfortable place. The villa has a roof deck with amazing, sweeping views of the sea. From the villa, you can walk along the cliffs to Praia Carvalho, Benagil, and (with a bit more of a hike) Marinha. There are several markets in Lagoa (10 min drive) for food shopping and several solid places to eat right in Benagil. Book this place - you will love it!!!!
Amazing place, great location a few minutes walk from two beaches, and a sunsets with a view from the roof top, make this a standout choice for a holiday.
What an amazing location! I seriously don’t think you can find a more incredible place to stay in Algarve than right above the Benagil caves. We absolutely loved it. A very nice pool was greatly enjoyed by the kids. Highly recommended!
This place has perfect amenities in a perfect environment. Location is great as you are within easy walking distance to two great beaches. The rooftop was amazing too. Highly recommend it. Antonio is very helpful with local tips and is very responsive. We were sad to leave and hope to return to this place again soon.
Great villa! Fantastic view, easy check-in (lock box at the door!), extremely clean and well cared for and a great location for exploring both east and west sides of the coastline. Antonio met us after we checked in to give us directions, suggestions for restaurants and activities, etc. He was very helpful and accessible via text throughout the trip to answer any questions. Gorgeous natural public beach just minutes away from the villa, amazing Italian Restaurant within walking distance "La Bella Vita" (Highly recommend) and a few other food choices as well. Do have to venture out to get to a grocery store (approx. 15-20 minutes away). Peaceful and quiet location.
Can't say enough. Pictures very accurate. Most beautiful scenery. So much room. Close to great restaurants with walking. Will come back
The location is wonderful and the house has everything you need. Checking in was a breeze. The two beaches in walking distance are spectacular. Viewing the ocean and the stars is lovely from the roof terrace. Highly recommend a stay here.
The place was fantastic, and a very short/easy walk to two beaches. Antonio was kind and very approachable. We very much enjoyed our relaxing time at this wonderful house!
Antonio was very responsive to our needs. The house was in an amazing area. It’s local beaches are some of the best we saw in Algarve. We had two adult couples and there was plenty of room. We loved the roof terrace. The views were spectacular. There’s around 5 restaurants within a short walk. The is no grocery store or mini market. Nice place for couples or families.
Good location to hikomng trails and cave excursions and nice terrace.
Great house with a superb hoste on a super nice location! Superb views, close to the beach, clean!
Das Haus hat wirklich eine super Lage. Zwei tolle Strände sind direkt in der Nähe und man kann tolle Spaziergänge machen. Ich hatte noch keinen Gastgeber der so schnell auf alle Fragen geantwortet hat und für einen da war, wirklich toll, danke dafür Antonio. Die Küche hat eine sehr gute Ausstattung, so dass man nichts beim kochen vermisst. Wir würden das Haus jeder Zeit wieder buchen da alles super funktioniert hat und und sehr gut gefallen hat :)
A localização é ótima, e a recepção muito acolhedora. A casa é muito agradável. Recomendo!
This place far exceeded our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Antonio was superb at communicating with us throughout our stay. I echo the past travellers' that the pictures do not do this place justice AT ALL. It's a short 8min walk to Benegil beach and the area is so quiet. There is a private rooftop with a hammock to which you can watch the sunset every evening. The view of the sea from the rooftop is the icing on the cake and it was amazing waking up to it every morning. The house is very clean and comfortable. It is also located outside the pool and parking is no problem at all. I cannot recommend this place enough and kudos to Anthony for being a fantastic host - I already want to head back there next summer!
Amazing location. Quiet. Good compound for private holidays.
This place is amazing. The photos don’t do it justice. It’s situated between two of the most beautiful beaches in the world, each of them only a five minute walk away. It has a private roof deck with a hammock that overlooks the ocean. The views are breathtaking and the sunrises and sunsets from the roof are spectacular. Antonio was very responsive to our questions and quick to resolve any issues we had. We already want to go back.
Antonio is just an amazing host. He is very friendly, polite, trustworthy and speaks English and German fluently. We arrived at 2 am in the morning and he prepared everything for us so that we could enter the house on our own and go straight to bed. We met the next morning and he told us everything what we should know to have a nice holiday. The house itself was also amazing. it has a nice roof (with a very nice view), 3 bathrooms and is literally 5 steps away from the pool, 20 steps away from the beauty of the cliff coast (not as dangerous as it sounds) and 10 minutes away (by walking) from the nearest Beaches (Benagil Beach and Carvalho Beach). We arrived by a rented car, so there was no problem for us to drive 10 - 15 minutes to the supermarket (we recommend Apolonia in Lagoa because you can drink there a coffee, enjoy the free strong wifi, buy some postcards and the quality of the food is just better). But it is no problem if you don't have a car because Uber is also available :D ! Internet from Antonio's router was okay for chatting, emails and sometimes for videos but the signal on the coast isn't very strong. We tried to access the Internet with our phones and we found out that it depends a little bit on which network you are registered and through which APN (Access Point) you are connected to the Internet. For example i was connected through (Website hidden by Airbnb) which wasn't good at all. But my brother was connected through another APN and his internet was working well enough for surfing. All in all it was a very nice holiday and we think about to return :) Thank you very much Antonio :)!
Das Haus befindet sich in perfekter Lage mit direkten Blick aufs Meer. Zwei Strände sind gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, ebenso wie einige Restaurants. Antonio ist ein sehr netter Gastgeber, er war jederzeit für uns erreichbar und hat uns mit tollen Tipps weitergeholfen. Wir würden diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall wieder wählen.
Super location, proche de la plage. Antonio est très sympa et donne de bons conseils
Disponibilidade e simpatia do Sr. António Cabral Comodidade do Apartamento, bem equipado Difícil acesso à praia, quer pedonal quer de automóvel
What a wonderful home, comfortable, spacious, very clean, the views are spectacular, and best location ever... walking distant to the beach. Antonio was such a great host, made sure to provide information about the area, places to eat, the ways to the beach and everything around. As it is described on the website even more.... If you book this home, and plan to have home made meals in the cozy kitchen, my only suggestion is to stop at the supermarket first and purchase some groceries prior to getting to the home, as there is no place to purchase near by; however, there are some nice restaurants close by. Other than that had a great experience. Home away from home!!
La estancia fue perfecta, y la casa es espectacular, Justo en los acantilados de Benagil, ideal para recorrer sus grutas y playas. Antonio fue muy atento y servicial, recomendándonos excursiones y sitios en los alrededores. Estancia genial!
Antonio's is in a perfect location above Benagil and Carvalho beaches - both easy walking distance. The shared pool is right by the apartment and everything is beautifully clean and tidy. It is very quiet residential area but within walking distance of several restaurants. We didn't have a car - Antonio sorted out airport transfers and we Uber'd everywhere without any problems at all - Antonio was very welcoming and was very quick to answer any queries. The apartment is really spacious with 3 bathrooms, roof terrace, small garden with BBQ it is an ideal place for a family holiday. Boat trips, Sup and kayak hire all from the Benagil beach - we had a wonderful week and thoroughly recommend it.
