Villa overview - owner's description

Casa Chrisanda is located at Jardim de Bensafrim, which is a small collection of villas situated in the countryside just off the Lagos to Bensafrim road, about ten minutes drive north of the town of Lagos.

Casa Chrisanda is a delightful, modern, single storey villa set in a large enclosed landscaped gardens, with ample space for parking several vehicles.

The villa receives great reviews from our guests, many of whom return regularly to enjoy the villa and the cosmopolitan town of Lagos. Have a read what our guests have to say about their stay in the review section and if you have any questions at all, please just get in touch - we are happy to help.

The villa enjoys a private spot with uninterrupted views across the countryside - perfect for those who enjoy their privacy. The pool is approximately 8m x 4m, 1 – 2 metres in depth and surrounded by terrace where there is also an outside pool shower. The pool is reached by walking through a gate and down a few steps. For parties with children, the gates can be secured for safety reasons.

A charcoal barbeque is tucked away on one side of the house and there is plenty of dining and lounging furniture for outside use.

The modern kitchen is fully fitted with a full electric oven/cooker, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, fridge and freezer, kettle, toaster, iron and board.

The lounge/dining room is furnished with three sofas and a dining table to seat six: satellite TV (limited channels) and DVD/video player. This area is also air-conditioned.

There are three bedrooms, one double and two twin bedded rooms, all with air conditioning. The double room has an en suite bathroom and there is a further, separate, full bathroom - both bathrooms have a bath with shower over.

The villa also has a full sized Mamas & Papas cot and its own highchair - please let us know if you are travelling with an infant.

Lagos boasts a fine marina and several beaches, including the magnificent Meia Praia and the pretty Praia Dona Ana, together with a full range of supermarkets, smaller shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.

A car is essential as Jardim de Bensafrim is a quiet countryside location. However, it is only a few minutes drive to all the amenities of Lagos: the choice of activities and places to visit and explore in this area is exceptional and it makes a good base from which to explore the more remote areas of the Western Algarve.

The villa has a useful list of telephone contacts which has been compiled to include numbers for local restaurants, transport services and many local tourist attractions

Taxi's can be easily booked at short notice for those wishing to sample the local Portugese wines and beers!

The property is fully registered for rental - Alojamento Local Number - 3524/AL

We have just come back from staying at
Casa Chrisanda and had a wonderful time . The villa is beautiful , in a quiet location , spotlessly clean and light and airy . We spent a lot of time at the villa as my husband loves to cook and the kitchen was really well equipped . The pool is really clean we were in it everyday . Lovely gardens to wander round and the gardener gave us some great recommendations . We used the bar b q which is also very good . Only 10 minute drive into Lagos to stock up on superb food in several supermarkets . The beaches are within easy reach as is the beautiful West Coast countryside . We thoroughly recommend Villa Chrisanda and would love to return . A big thank you to the owners who make everything run so smoothly and for allowing us to stay in their beautiful villa .

We had an amazing week at the villa. It's the only holiday I have ever been on and didn't want to leave.
There was everything you need at the villa and more. It was spoitlessly clean there. Location was very good. The town had everything you need there. The beach was slightly over crowded for my liking but I did expect that because of the date we went (august) I was told by many locals that there is alot of beaches there that are quieter. Tina was very very helpful, no question was too much for her 😁
Rogerio the pool cleaner was also very helpful and was willing to answer every question asked. He told us of a few restaurants which we didn't try this time but intend to try next time we go.
This is definitely a holiday I will be returning to annually. My brother in law and my partner have both asked me to add it was the best holiday they have ever had. Thank you Tina for everything looking forward to next August's holiday already 😁😁

Great to hear you had such a good week at Casa Chrisanda, we look forward to welcoming you all back again in August 2018 and we'll share some recommendations for the quieter beaches.

The villa has everything you could wish for a lovely relaxing holiday. Beautifully clean and maintained pool and gardens, a shady area for dining, a good barbeque area and plenty of room for six adults. The kitchen is spacious and extremely well-equipped for self-catering and includes dishwasher and washing machine. The three bedrooms are large and airy as are the bathroom and en-suite. The views from the villa are lovely and it is unoverlooked. The area is peaceful and quiet, but within easy driving distance to the local town of Lagos, and beyond. Plenty to see and do within easy reach. Rogerio, the pool and garden man, is extremely helpful and has loads of information about the local area, places to visit, restaurants to try if you require. Rogerio maintains the pool and garden to an extremely high standard. From booking, to check-in and check-out we had really good communication with the owner, who always responded quickly to e-mail queries and provided lots of helpful information. A really enjoyable holiday in a lovely villa which we thoroughly recommend.

Family from Sheffield, United Kingdom Aug 2016

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful villa, it was much bigger than expected and very well equipped, with fabulous views of the countryside. The pool was excellent and well maintained, and having a gate to the pool steps helped create a safe boundary for my 3 year old. There is plenty of outdoor space and the gardens surrounding the villa are beautiful. The villa is in a very quiet neighborhood and the addition of roller shutters on all the patio doors made it very secure.
A hire car is essential as the location means there isn't anywhere within walking distance, but the marina and beach is only a 10 minute drive away and there are plenty of supermarkets within a five minute drive, which made self catering very easy.
I was very happy with the whole booking process and Tina was very helpful and answered all my questions quickly. Having Tina available to help at a moment's notice if required was very reassuring. I don't normally go to the same place twice, but I would definitely consider it with this villa, one of the most enjoyable holidays I've had and with three children that is something special.

Thanks for your review Christine, we are so pleased to hear you and your children had a great holiday at Casa Chrisanda. We hope to welcome you back soon.

Der Aufenthalt in der Casa Chrisanda war super. Das Haus, die Umgebung und der Pool sind in Wirklichkeit noch schöner, als dies die Bilder zeigen. Die Betreuung durch Tina im Vorfeld des Aufenthaltes war top! Das Haus und sämtliche Anlageteile sind in einem einwandfreiren, sehr gepflegten Zustand. Das Haus und der Pool sind sehr sauber. Das Haus liegt in einer sehr kleinen ruhigen Feriensiedlung etwas abseits von Lagos. Es ist die unterste Villa und man hat einen ungetrübten Blick in die Talebene , der Blick wird nur durch die in der Ferne liegende Autobahn getrübt, was aber nicht wirklich stört. Die nahegelegene Stadt Lagos und das Meer sind mit dem Auto in rund 5 Minuten sehr gut erreichbar.

Staying at Casa Chris Anda was great . The house , the surroundings and the pool are more beautiful than the pictures show in reality . Supervision by Tina in advance of the stay was great! The house and all system components are in a einwandfreiren , excellent condition . The house and pool are very clean . The house is situated in a very quiet new holiday resort a bit away from Lagos . It is the lowest Villa and has an unobstructed view into the valley , the view is marred only by the highway in the distance , but that does not really bother . The nearby town of Lagos and the sea are easily reached by car in around 5 minutes.

We had a fantastic time at villa with two children aged 14 and 10 between 23-30 August 2015 . The pictures on the website really do not do this villa justice. It is fantastic and very spacious and clean. The pool is huge compared to others i have seen which catches the sun for pretty much the whole day. Communication with the owner was excellent and Tina was very helpful answering questions before we arrived and it really is not that far outside Lagos set in the countryside but you do need a car if you you want to travel around. Finding the villa was easy from the directions given and takes about 50 mins from the airport. Lagos is lovely and there are lots of different beaches small and large just outside the town. The marina and street markets are good and the food is very good with reasonable prices, around £36 - £40 for family of four with drinks. There is a Lidl and Aldi close to the villa [in town] 5 mins drive and the prices compared to UK are excellent which makes self catering affordable. Most of the cafes and bars have free wifi...even the local Macdonalds (for those of you who have teenagers) There is no air con in the villa but it is fitted with electric shutters on each window door. If you use these properly then the villa really does stay cool and we did not need for air con during the whole trip. There are two outdoor eating areas and plenty of tools etc for the barbecue. A Fantastic villa and we will be returning !!

30 May - 5 June 2008 This our second visit to the villa was like the first - most enjoyable and relaxing.The setting is superb and very private - a must for our type of holiday. The villa is more than well equipped and provided for all of our needs. We found Lagos has retained all of its old charm and culture since our first visit and is a splendid day out. The choice of restaurants is vast with a good selec tion of cuisine and of high quality. A return visit is already being planned, probably with our grandchildren. With this in mind, I must mention the delightful pool with its secure and safe gates.Thanks again.John & Irene Wilson (Lancs)

28 July - 4 August 2008Thanks a lot for the most enjoyable visit we have had. Our first time in Portugal and surely not our last. The villa is fantastic with everything we need and more - it has been great! Thanks for making us feel so welcome.Charlotte, Iszy, Lucy & EmilyWhat more can we add to the above?Thanks for letting us use your villa, we have had one of our best holidays ever and would love to come back .Great villa - everything you need and more. A week was definitely not long enough!!Judith & Ian (Somerset)

We love the Algarve and staying at Casa Chrisanda again makes it a perfect holiday. Thank you for providing such a fantastic villa with everything we could ever need - including the sunshine!!We hope to come back soon!Doug, Jenny and Jack, UK

A wonderful villa, quite the best we have ever had during our 19 visits to the Algarve and so peaceful.Thank you for all the thought that has gone into making Casa Chrisanda so lovely. We have had a superb holiday.Audrey & John Newman and Helen & Steve Bridgeman

A wonderful holiday - the place is fantastic. Hope to return soon if you will have us! A lovely villa - worth every penny. No faults!John and Jackie Forrester and family, Rocester, UK

The villa is like a home from home - except my home doesn't have a pool and endless sunshine or sky tv for that matter!! Anyway have had a fantastic time, thanks so much!!Helen, Liverpool

We've had a WONDERFUL time. Thank you for letting us share Casa Chrisanda, its been so relaxing.Rebecca (8) has found most little hidey-holes in the gardens and had a superb time on the Seafari to see the dolphins (Mummy and Grandma weren't so sure - you need a strong pair of sea legs on a choppy day!!)The villa is fantastic! Thank you!Wesley, Janette & Rebecca Green and Grandma Marian and Grandad Cyril Eardley, Nantwich, Cheshire

As soon as we arrived we felt instantly at home. The villa has all you could want in terms of facilities and equipment - right down to 'Sky' TV which enabled Jancie to keep up to date with all the soaps!!I would say that this must count as the best holiday Janice and I have ever had with the weather being constantly in the high 30's and very sunny with clear blue skies every day.Having to return to the UK and the usual poor weather is not a happy occasion but we need to do it to allow us a great holiday next year. We will be back!!Many thanks to the 'Pye family' and Kath and Chris for all their help and assistance in making our holiday trouble free.John & Janice Savage, Lincolnshire - UK

Many Thanks. Had a great timeFantastic Villa, Fantastic weather, good food, first trip to Portugal for Chloe (3) and Lucy (10 months).Look forward to a return trip. Thank you.Jonathan, Emma , Chloe and Lucy, not forgetting our helpers.... Grandma (Pam) and Grandad (Graham)

It was 6 years since we last visited the Algarve and the best part of 12 years since we paid Lagos a visit, how things have changed and become busy! The villa and its location made us relax so much we found it it hard to leave day or night! Just the 2 of us so we only used a small part of the lovely spacious villa.Now we have to leave, we are finding it difficult to pull ourselves away but we have to go back home and back to work!! - We'll be back!!To all who have the pleasure of visiting the villa, there is nothing better than to take a great book and spend the whole day by the pool with a portugese beer!(Mr & Mrs Hands, Widnes)

Second visit, still fabulous. Wonderful place, swimming pool and surroundings.A little bit of heaven in a hectic life.(Anne, Staffs)

Many Thanks to the 'Pye Family' and also to Chris and Kath for being so welcoming - and for leaving beer in the fridge!! Villa is well equipped and situated near to the beautiful town of Lagos. A great time had by all, suitable for visitors both young and old!!(Matt Beeson and friends, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs)

Excellent well equipped accomodation close to a great resort. Overall as superb holiday. Will certainly be back. THANKS!Mr & Mrs Wilson, Liverpool.

What a beautiful place! Everything we needed and so much more. So much thought has gone into this accomodation and the fine detail makes a great difference. This was our first holiday with a young child and all our needs were catered for. We would like to thank the 'Pye' family for your help and assistance in arranging our first 'non package' holiday including those fab directions from the airport. This villa has the personal touch - but not so much that you feel you are intruding. We look forward to our return!The Grant Family, Ormskirk, Lancs
