Bens is situated near the Spanish border where a bridge connects both countries and 16 KMs away from the historical town of Mertola. Beja's airport is 50 KM away and Faro's international airport in Algarve about 135 kms and Algarve's beaches at about 75 KMs (Monte Gordo) and Golf in Vilamoura very closed to Faro. The house has private outside parking. Bens is a very quiet little country village. Excellent to rest and hike in the countryside surrounded by an astonishing wild landscape and lakes where you may fishing or simply walk around amaizing the Nature wild life. Very close to a fluvial beach (pond) with rather warm water and also good for windsurf and canoeing; In Mertola there are old roman ruins, a castle and museums; the restaurants are recommended as the best in this area. A big and long river called Guadiana is just close by and one the best points to visit is waterfalls of "Pulo do Lobo" where you can take good and memorable pictures; If you like trekking you can see wild animals like rabbits, jumping and partridges, running or flying in front of you. In Pomarão, where the bridge crossing over to Spain is, river Guadiana becomes very wide and deep. Here you can also find a small marina. I like to be a good host and I have nice stories to tell you about my experiences when I was living in Africa and now in Europe since 1976.

Han sido dos dias estupendos, tras pedalear luchando con subidas y bajadas durante 77 km, llegar a ese pequeño pueblo y que te reciba esta encantadora pareja, Alexandre y Eduarda, con derroche de sonrisas y hospitalidad, es puro relax. Todo resultó genial, la casa fantástica, la ubicación espectacular y por supuesto el haber conocido a esta gran pareja de anfitriones hopitalarios y cariñosos.
We stayed in both of Alexander's houses in Bens. First the Sunset house for 5 days and then the Old House for the last 5 days. This was because the "old house" was already booked.
Both houses were comfortable and well equipped but the old house has a wonderful garden to sit in and enjoy the fragrances of the lemon blossoms and other flowers.
But what was really special was the sweetness of our hosts, Alexander and Eduarda, as well as others in the village. We ate dinner every evening at the restaurant ( no name ) for authentic Portuguese food made to order and incredibly inexpensive prepared by Jose with help from Marcelo. And then there is the cheese lady who makes fresh goats cheese every day.
Bens is a very quiet village and for us it was the perfect respite from Seville during the exstasis of Santa Semana. The countryside is beautiful with carpets of wild flowers at every turn.
We heartily recommend both of Alexander's houses and Bens itself. Peter and Janet, Connecticut, USA.
Hemos disfrutado de unos días maravillosos en un entorno muy tranquilo y diferente del que estamos acostumbrados las personas que vivimos en la ciudad, el paisaje, las carreteras, los pueblecitos. Ha sido una experiencia estupenta.
Alexandre y María son una pareja encantadora y realmente muy hospitalaria. La casa estaba impecable y tenía todo de todo.
Muchas gracias, ha sido un auténtico placer!!!!!!
It was a big pleasure to stay with Maria Eduarda and Alexandre in the little village of Bens. They took good care of us and we had many possibilities to chat. The house is new, spacious, well-equipped and everything worked well. The village is really small and we met many of the 30 inhabitants. It is really nice to spend some time in these typical surroundings.Outside, there are also some places to visit like Mertola, Mina Sao Domingo or Pulo do lobo. For families and people who want peace and calmness, it is perfect, also thanks to the perfect hosts:) A very good experience and we surely come back with friends
The house is great, well equipped e clean! It's on a quiet little village, where one can only hear sheeps grazing. The owners are really nice, where always available to helps us with anything we needed and even showed us their garden (where they grow some amazingly smelling lemons and herbs).
There are several interesting places to visit around Bens, like Mina de S. Domingo (an abandoned mine), Mértola, Serpa, Pomarão and even Spain.
Definitely a place to visit and go back!
A casa é óptima, muito bem equipada e limpa! Está situada numa aldeia muito sossegada, onde se ouvem apenas as ovelhas a pastar. Os proprietários são extremamente simpáticos, estiveram sempre disponíveis para orientar-nos no que fosse necessário e ainda nos levaram a ver a sua horta (que dá umas ervas aromáticas e uns limões com cheiro fantástico).
Perto de Bens existe a Mina de S. Domingo, um complexo mineiro abandonado, Serpa, Mértola, Pomarão e Espanha.
Decididamente um sítio a visitar e voltar!
My parents and I had a wonderful time in Mértola region and Alexandre e Eduarda were the perfect hosts: warm, welcoming and always willing to help in a discreet manner. The house is spacious and has all the amenities expected of a modern house (tv, dishwasher, air con. etc.). It was spotless when we arrived. Alexandre and Eduarda are very friendly, generous and genuinely interested in providing the best possible experience. While staying, we met some of their wonderful (large) family and were delighted with their hospitality. Basically, we felt at home.
