About David Tattersall
I am Chairman of a marketing/internet Group of Companies based in Norwich,England and an online art/antiques dealership: www.secretartcollector.co.uk. Being a keen golfer, I found my perfect Algarve townhouse villa in Benagil - the most beautiful cliff-top location.There are a number of testing championship golf courses within 10-15 minutes drive of my property. I enjoy a very active life both in the UK and Portugal. Affinity Agency opened in 1986.It services and support SME's and large plc groups. I fell in love with Portugal and it's Southern Atlantic coastline because of the wonderful all year round climate, culture, and the safe, secure infrastructure. I love how friendly the Portuguese are. I'm very lucky to own a cliff-top townhouse villa with private pool for holidaymakers' use
David Tattersall purchased this Villa in 2006
Why David Tattersall chose Benagil
I discovered Benagil in January 2006 after a 2 year search to find a tranquil fishing village on the Algarve. I was looking for somewhere with safe bathing beaches, uncorrupted by development and with easy access to nearby golf courses. Terracos de Benagil is a small exclusive development with its own private swimming pool in a stunning location on the top of the famous Benagil cliffs surrounded by a conservation area perfect for walks and exploring. The beaches are a favourite of local people and families, as Benagil is a very unspoilt traditional fishing village with a small number of select, affordable restaurants serving superbly cooked freshly caught fish, Portuguese dishes and great wines. There is a warm, friendly welcome in the village to all visitors. Most Portuguese speak English
What makes this Villa unique
The views of the Atlantic, and the Algarve coastline that can be seen from the rooftop are breathtaking. A short walk will take you to either of the safe bathing beaches of Benagil or Carvalho. Properties in this select development are owned privately by fellow English or Portuguese professionals like myself who enjoy the tranquility, serenity and beauty of our surroundings. The house is decorated and furnished to a very high standard in a distinctly Mediterranean style by a talented interior designer, and is well maintained throughout the year. All equipment (including barbecue) is chosen to make your stay pleasurable. There is a good selection of games, books, TV, DVDs and CDs for your entertainment in the comfortable lounge or outside on the garden patio or the roof terrace. David has left two full sets of Gents' golf clubs and a Ladies half-set for holidaymakers' enjoyment. Please replace all lost golf balls after playing. Bring your shoes,golf gloves and clothing to play.

Beautiful Villa in a very quiet fishing village with stunning sea views. We stayed for 10 nights at the end of August. House is clean, well equipt and comfortable. The house has ample bedding and towels which is excellent especially travelling with young children. Garden has 4 sun loungers and there's a table with chairs under a canopy to enjoy eating outdoors. On the roof terrace there are 4 more chairs and a small table. A small suggestion is for the furniture on the roof could do with being updated and it would have been useful to have a couple of chairs on the balcony from the second bedroom. However the house is extremely well managed and any query or request is dealt with immediately. We requested a few things during our stay ( more pool / beach towels , pillows, outdoor chairs) and these were promptly provided. Superb service, very impressed!! There are two beaches in walking distance , one of which is accessible by stairs and the other you access through a small cave (very stunning and great experience!) Pool is fantastic, warm and you can always get a lounger as other guests are respectful and don't leave towels on if they're not being used. We ate out a couple of times, casa de lamy had stunning sea views but our favourite was casa de pasto do mar which has stunning food and very reasonable prices. Overall a fantastic villa which I would recommend for families or anyone wishing for a quiet retreat. Thank you again for the excellent service and amazing family holiday.
Thank you for your constructive advice. My intention in 2020 is to invest in modern rooftop dining table and 4 chairs furniture for our holidaymakers benefit. We think they will appreciate this investment.we strive to constantly improve our holiday home for the holidaymakers' benefits, and hope they do realise this is an ongoing process.
Very pleasant stay
Very nice and well maintained property. Excellent communication with management and owner. Beautiful area but car is necessary.
Wonderful Month in Benagil!
My husband and I spent the month of February at this wonderful condo in Benagil. This was our first time being in Portugal, and after spending a few weeks exploring the “Algarve”, we were even happier with our choice of accommodation. Benagil is in a great central location with amazing coastal trails and 2 beautiful beaches right out the door. Three big grocery stores a short drive from here (Intermarche & Aldi were our favourites). The gorgeous beach town of Carvoeiro is nice and close as well, with lots of little shops and restaurants. You definitely need a car if you are staying right in Benagil, but there are a few restaurants you can walk to. We had 2 wonderful seafood meals at “Brisa do Mar” which is right around the corner, just a few steps away. The condo itself is fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. Very reasonably priced for everything it has to offer. We cooked most of our own meals and the appliances, cookware & utensils were great, and we certainly appreciated the few spices and other supplies they had available for us to use. So peaceful and quiet here during this time of year, it almost felt like we had the entire complex to ourselves. Thanks David & Mari for sharing your beautiful property with us. We absolutely loved it here and hope to make it back again someday!

Please accept our gratitude for the kind words and plaudits you left for viewers to realise our standards are kept very high for visitors to enjoy and relax in beautiful Benagil.
Don't Miss this Algarve Property in Benagil in Autumn- Quiet & Serene in Sun
Benagil is so quiet and peaceful to relax in on the Algarve. Even in October it is remarkably warm. The cliff-top walks are breathtaking to view out across the ocean. I strongly recommend you add lote no. 11 to your autumn wish lists to visit.
Perfect town house. Immaculately clean.
Lovely family holiday. Great location. Need a car to get around as the nearest supermarket is a short drive away.
Thank you Victoria for taking the time to add your valid comments to my HomeAWay website. It is appreciated and will be very much appreciated by future residents taking their holidays in beautiful Benagil.
Fabulous property in a fabulous location
Really enjoyed our recent stay here, the house is just as it appears in the photos and as described. It was a bonus to have housekeeping mid way through our stay too! It’s only metres away from two beautiful beaches - a boat tour of the caves is a must. Car hire is essential as the shops/supermarket is quite a distance away but this also allowed us to explore the surrounding area. We will definitely return. Thank you for a wonderful holiday
Mari and I all really appreciate your candid honesty on here, Ruth. Holidaymakers value the opinions of families like your own, to know the owners’ standards and levels of cleaning and management support for each holidaymaker staying in beautiful
Thank you Ruth. Get in touch and I will discount any return visit to my villa at Lote No.11.
5 minutes walk to two fantastic,safe for bathing, family beaches at Praia de Carvalho and Praia de Benagil. Within 5 minutes by car is Praia de Marina - the most stunning beach area on the Algarve. Beautiful cliff top walks through conservation areas to Carvalho beach and on to the Lighthouse at Rocha Brava. Local shop supplying English and European newspapers and groceries at Rocha Brava.
Faro Airport is a 40ing minute drive down the A22 motorway which has paying toll charges in use. You exit at Junction 6 (Lagoa) on the A22 when driving from Faro Airport to Benagil.
Alternatively, it is easy to drive down the N125 main coast road from Faro to Lagoa and turn left towards Carvoeiro and Benagil in Lagoa at the second set of traffic lights on a roundabout, where brown tourist signs identify your exit route.Take slip road off the N125 into the roundabout.Do not turn immediate left.
You are a 5 minute walk to 2 lovely beaches and a 5 minute car drive to the pictuesque town of Carvoeiro and Lagoa. The local supermarket Intermarche is only a 5 minute drive from Benagil towards Lagoa.Acquaca, another superb supermarket for all your grocery and food supplies, is located on the edge of Lagoa just off the main N125 highway to Portimao and the A22 motorway.
The Times Travel Supplement, Saturday 5/3/2011 stated "Portugal is the best value destination for holidaymakers according to the Post Office Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer, which shows the cost of a basket of goods including staples such as coffee, beer, water and a 3-course meal for two. Atlantic winds keep the Azores and Madeira cool, so head to the Algarve or other southerly mainland resorts"
Recently, a cliff walk has been established by the local council across "The 7 cliffs" of which Benagil is the centre. This is clearly signposted for walkers to enjoy the rugged coastline safely by foot, and has points of interest with information posted along the route. To the west of Carvoeiro is the old unspoilt fishing village of Ferragudo. Lagoa, the nearest town, offers local shops, fruit and fish market, and restaurants. Inland from Lagoa you will find the picture postcard village of Porches and historical Silves.
Life in Porches revolves around the local pottery industry where crafts have been revived, preserving ancient Iberian and Moorish patterns. Another place that is a must to be visited is the inland historic and interesting town of Silves with the remains of its castle a reminder of Portugal’s historical past.
Portimao, a major city on the Algarve has its bustling streets, modern boutiques, markets, waterside restaurants and stunning wide beaches less than 20 minutes’ away by car. Remember, the majestic coastal cliffs and beach at Praia de Marinha is only 5 minutes’ drive away and probably one of the Algarve’s most famous coastal views.
Fishing, golf, horse-riding, tennis, scuba diving, surfing and walking are all enjoyed by visiting holidaymakers. The Algarve offers a wide range of entertainment and activities, with something to suit everyone.
