Home from home
Having previously missed out on staying at this property we were excited about arriving here, disappointed we were not.
Stephen the owner had been very helpful from the moment we booked, giving detailed information on the villa prior to our arrival, even helping out with the transfer from Faro.
Linda who looks after the property, changing bed linen, towels etc, was there to meet and greet us, showing us around the property both inside and out, making us all feel at home.
Being only four of us we were spoilt with all the space available to us, using only two of the three floors. A larger party I'm sure would find this more than adequate. Having ones own pool did make a big difference, the beach though is only a five minute walk being very safe with plenty of space to lose yourself on.
The property was clean with all modern conveniences to make our two week stay more than comfortable.
Knowing the area there are many places to eat if you don't want to be preparing meals in the villa, if you do though eating out on the top terrace watching the sun go down, fishing boats come in is a pleasure.
You can almost manage without a car as there are local supermarkets and you can always take a taxi to one of the larger ones if you need a big ship, we like the InterMarche at Carvoerio.
There are places to visit if you do have a car, the castle at Silves, Zoo Marine and if you are into diving I recommend you book with Subnauta in Praia da Rocha www.subnauta.pt. They have some excellent places to dive and recently three ex Navy ships were sunk just for diving with a fourth due to be sunk this month.
I would recommend this property if you want somewhere to relax in and be private in the Algarve sun.
Owner's Response: The comments made by James are really appreciated. I feel that it is important to provide as much information as possible so that guests can start their holidays running. James and his family were already familar with the delights of Ferragudo so I didn't need to try too hard to sell the place to him. Thanks for mentioning the diving - this is going to be a real attraction for the area generally. I do hope that we can welcome you and your family back in the near future.
