38 Vila Castelo is a well presented town house on the popular Vila Castelo complex in Ferragudo. On entrance to the property there is a hallway with two bedrooms, the first bedroom has one double bed and modern en-suite bathroom with bath and newly installed separate shower and the second bedroom has two single beds, with en-suite bathroom with modern walk in shower. Both bedrooms have air conditioning.
There are stairs (with stair gate) leading up to the bright and airy lounge and dining area, here you will find TV (limited English channels), DVD player and CD player, Two comfortable sofa's and a stylish dining table and chairs. Just off the lounge/dining area there is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to make it feel like home from home.
The lounge opens up to the terrace (via nation doors), the terrace is the perfect place to relax, there is a comfortable seating area and 4 loungers, there is also a dining table and 4 chairs and a optional canopy for shade.
We chose this property because we wanted to be close to town without been right in the centre, it is ideally situated for the beach where there is a great selection of bars and restaurants and unless you want to explore the Algarve a car is not required.
The shared pool is great for cooling down, there are plenty of sun loungers around the pool so it's ideal for relaxing whilst the children play.
This was our 2nd holiday to the same property and we loved it just as much as the first time. The apartment is great, location is perfect, beach ideal and the pool is superb for families.
We were very impressed with every aspect of our holiday home. On the first floor the kitchen was extremely well equipped including dishwasher, washing machine, modern cooker, microwave, toaster etc. The lounge/dining room was of a very high standard, comfortable, modern and in good taste. The patio windows opened up to a magnificent terrace for all day sun bathing and outdoor dining.
On the ground floor were two double bed rooms with modern en-suite bathroom/showers.
The house was in a good location especially since we didn't have a car and were able to reach all shops, restaurants etc on foot.
Emma was at the house to greet us when we arrived and both Mike and Emma were there if we needed them.
The shared pool/bar were welcoming and friendly.
We spent a very relaxing week at No 38 in June 2014. We found the house to be exceptionally well appointed and everything we needed was to hand. We were particularly pleased with the large terrace which at all times of the day provides full sun for those that want it and welcome shade for those that don’t. We were within easy walking distance of the beach and a short pleasant stroll to the square in the evenings. The food provided at the local restaurants was all to a very good standard and we agreed we didn’t have a bad meal all week. We would not hesitate to recommend the house and there is no doubt that we will return again in the future.
We are a family of 4 (two girls aged 3 and just under 1) and just spent 11 days at the house. We had a great time there. The house is spotless and has all you can wish for and more (the terrace is huuuuge!). Itis very well located, just a short walk to the nearest beach Praia grande, which is ideal if you travel with small children, and to the village, which has everything you need on a daily basis (a few bakery's, a butcher's, a market for fresh fruit/veg and fish). We absolutely loved the atmosphere in the village, and having visited a few seaside resorts in the surrounding, we did not regret our final choice to stay in Ferragudo. It's small and has managed to remain authentic, and is ideally located in the Algarve, if you wish to see a few places around. Emma and Mike were really nice and helpful, checking up on us to make sure everything was fine. Emma never failed to quickly reply to my many emails and was lovely to deal with. All in all, it is really a super place to stay, if you are looking for a relaxing holiday, away from the big crowds! (but we were there in May, so it might be a bit busier in the summer...).

We have been to Vila Castelo in Ferragudo several times before as it's a perfect spot for a young family, but this townhouse has easily been the best we've rented.
It's beautifully presented, well equipped and very convenient for both the beautiful Praia Grande beach (a fabulous beach for small children as it's protected from the big Atlantic surf by the seawall) and the village of Ferragudo itself, which is probably the least spoilt of all the Algarve fishing villages.
I'd also like to mention Emma and Mike of Robinson's Retreats, who manage the property and went out of their way for us and helped make our holiday.
There's only one small thing I would mention. If you have trouble negotiating steps then you should be aware that there's a reasonably steep flight of steps leading up to this townhouse. It didn't prove a problem for us (and Mike very kindly helped us with our bags both arriving and leaving), but it's worth knowing. To be honest, the great sun terrace and the super condition of the townhouse more than made up for it.
Would we go back? Yes - without hesitation.
We have just returned from a week's stay at this beautiful townhouse which has been refurbished, is extremely well equipped and is immaculate. It is so convenient for both the beautiful Praia Grande Beach and the village square. Ferragudo is a lovely village which is still unspoiled with many restaurants to suit all tastes and pocket. We also have to mention Emma and Mike who manage the property who go out of their way to ensure everything is in order ensuring your holiday is trouble free. Would definitely go back.
38 Vila Castelo is situated on a popular resort of town houses situated just a 10 minute walk from the traditional town of Ferragudo and a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach where you can find a lovely selection of bars and restaurants which often have live music on a Sunday in the summer months. Ferragudo is a very family friendly resort, there is a great selection of restaurants and a lovely square in the centre where there is often live music in the summer which provides a lovely atmosphere in the evenings. If you fancy exploring Portimao or Praia Do Rocha you can get a boat taxi which runs until 23:00 most evenings between June and October.
Vila Castelo is a resort made up of town houses, it's very popular with lots of people returning year after year. There is a lovely shared pool and in the summer months there is a pool side bar offering snacks and refreshments throughout the day.
