Villa Gecko, Jardim da Bensafrim, Lagos, Algarve
Villa Gecko is located at Jardim da Bensafrim, which is a small collection of houses 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.
The villa is single storey and spacious with interestingly contoured ceilings and steps up to the two smaller bedrooms. The kitchen/dining area is very large with patio doors leading onto the terrace overlooking the pool. The kitchen is fully fitted with a gas hob, electric oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. The dining area seats six.
The lounge is well furnished with patio doors opening onto the pool terrace. There is a log burner, satellite TV (limited channels), DVD and music centre with plenty of tapes, DVDs, books and games for the client's use. The master bedroom has a double bed, en suite shower room and patio doors to the pool terrace. The two other bedrooms are both twin bedded and share a large bathroom. The house is fully air conditioned.
The pool is approximately 10m x 5m and is surrounded by terracing. Lawn, flower beds and fruit trees such as orange, lemon and grapefruit lie to one side of the house and ample loungers and table/chairs are provided for outside dining and your relaxation.
A car is essential as Jardim da 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.
