Overview

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 twelve minutes drive north of the town of Lagos. 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.
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 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. 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 medium sized and 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. A CD player and radio are also provided for entertainment.

There are three bedrooms, one double and two twin bedded rooms, all furnished with wardrobes, drawers, bedside tables and lamps and all having fans. The double room has an en suite bathroom (bath with shower over) and there is a further, separate, full bathroom (bath with shower over).

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!

Stayed Sunday 03 August 2014 with Family
An excellent villa, quiet location, very private with beautiful countryside views, despite having the security of other villas nearby. Short distance from Lagos, providing easy access. The villa itself was very well equipped with everything that you could need. Plenty of outside space and several locations to eat, sit and relax. Fabulous pool and surrounding area which were kept in immaculate condition. Helpful information and contact with the owner which made for a pleasant and relaxing stay with seamless check in /out. Whilst the photographs on the website are good they do not do full justice to the space both in and outside of the villa. We would definitely return following a wonderful holiday.

We had a great stay at Casa Chrisanda - the villa is only a 10 minute drive away from Lagos - which is a great place to eat / drink in the evenings. We were met at the villa with the keys and shown around. We were really pleased from then on for the rest of our stay. The villa is well equipped and everything works. Tina (owner) helped us out with car rental and transfers to / from faro airport - all of which was reliable and much appreciated. Gardens are beautiful - pool is lovely - location is perfect - villa is spacious, cool, clean and well maintained Check out was great - no extensive cleaning required There a little road noise from the motorway which must be about a mile away - but it didnt affect us at all. Thanks for a great holiday

This property was much bigger than expected, with 3 separate eating areas we were spoilt for choice, excellent facilities and little extras like ice packs and cool packs to borrow exceptionally useful. The Property was very clean and modern. The Pool was great with plenty of pool toys and sun loungers. It was so peaceful. The property was also very secure. A car is essential but the drive to beaches and town less than 10 minutes. We were looked after by Adrian who provided us with excellent service and knowledge of the area, he arranged a trip to see dolphins for us and brought the tickets to the villa for us - First Rate !! and a really nice friendly man. We had an excellent holiday here and were very sad to leave. Thank you for a wonderful rental.

This villa was even better than it looked in the pictures. Tina, the owner, was very helpful in her emails before we arrived and even left us some food in the fridge. The manager was very friendly and the pool cleaner too! The villa was extremely clean and had everything we needed. We were really sad to leave.

This villa far exceeded our Families expectations, it is extremely modern, very spacious, immaculately clean and very well equiped with everything a Family could wish for, it is clear that alot of thought and consideration has gone into the attention to detail. The location is perfect, everything ,including the beach ,within a very short driving distance. My Kids loved the pool and all the play things available for them to use and were very sad to leave - We will definately be booking again and I would reccommend this to anyone in need of a relaxing home from home in the Sun -)

One of our favourite all time holidays! We have never been to a villa so well equipped. The space, privacy and tranquillity offered by Casa Chrisanda was fantastic! After visiting Lagos only a couple of years ago we decided to return this year. This villa was recommended by a friend and I can clearly see why! The accommodation is of a very high standard and the villa contains everything a family could need. The design of the villa is well thought out and there are plenty of neat touches. The pool area is gated so our toddler could roam safely whilst we had breakfast on the terrace! The layout of the villa also means the kids bedrooms are the other side of the hallway and they have their own bathroom. This meant we could enjoy the lounge without keeping them awake. We hired a car and would recommend other visitors do so - although we also found the taxi service is more efficient and reliable than back home! Lagos and its great beaches are less than 10 minutes drive away so we were able to sample the culture at our own leisure but also enjoy the peace and quiet of our own private pool! We will be back!! Next time with the grandparents as this accommodation offers the perfect family holiday!

We were thoroughly pleased with Casa Chrisanda. There was nothing lacking. A very spacious villa providing many areas to relax inside and out. We spent a great proportion of time in the pool. Both the pool and villa were cleaned regularly. The garden had a variety of beautiful flowering plants to enjoy. Lagos, the local city was 5 mins drive and never too busy though active enough in the evenings to provide a little atmosphere. We would not hesitate to choose the same villa if/when we return to the Algarve.

Lovely villa. Suited us wonderfully. Far enough out of Lagos to avoid the hullabaloo and crowds and close enough to get in when we wanted.
Verified
A great villa, better than the photos. Lovely pool. Quiet location but only 10 mins easy drive into lagos, which has plenty of resturants and small shops to visit in the evenings. The villa has everything you will need, towels changed regularly and the pool man/gardener visited twice a week. Would highly recommend this villa.

The villa is beautiful. It is very spacious and wonderfully equipped. It also very clean. I would return to this villa and recommend it to friends. Heather Hayes (Mrs)

This villa was just perfect. It was so spacious and everything you could need was provided. The view was stunning, loved the pool area and the fact that it was walled and gated keeping our kiddies away from it until we were ready. The photos do not do this villa any justice. It is definately a luxury villa, bright and airy. We rented a car at the airport and the directions which came after booking this villa were so easy to follow. About an hours drive from faro airport. Chirs met us at the villa. He was most helpful, suggesting activities to do with kids and we booked these with Chris, again giving us amazing directions to all the attractions. Lagos is only a 5 min drive from the villa and plenty of fabulous beaches only minutes drive also. We would highly recommend going to Lagos zoo and Slide and Splash waterpark. A visit to the quaint little town of Alvor and a boat trip to the amazing grottos/caves a must too. You will not regret booking this villa, we certainly could not recommend it highly enough.

Casa Chrisanda is a spacious, well-equipped villa lying a short distance outside Lagos. Its on the very edge of a small development and has no overlooking neighbours. The photos on-line dont really do the place justice and the pool looks much larger in real life. If youre cooking your own meals, youll find everything you need in the kitchen but with taxis into Lagos costing less than €10, its too easy to sack it off and dine out in one of Lagos many restaurants. You WILL need a car but driving in Portugals a doddle. One bit of advice for you: beware of roundabouts. Nobody indicates and they only ever use the outside lane.
Verified
Myself and some friends had a great time in Lagos. It was a great place to relax but also had plenty to do. The Villa was a perfect base with everything we needed - it was hard work dragging ourselves away from the pool most days! The fact that it was so well equiped rounded everything off nicely. Well definitely be going back.
Verified
An excellent property, we all had a warm welcome from Chris on arrival, the Villa is in a beautiful location, both private and peaceful.We would highly recommend Casa Casandra to friends and relatives.

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
