Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 8- own pool, well equipped, great location

This privately owned spacious luxury villa is an ideal self catering holiday home furnished to a very high standard. The large, comfortable open plan lounge is complemented with TV/satellite and music system as well as a dining area for eight. Terraces surround lounge, dining and bedrooms providing stunning views overlooking the beach, sea and the privately owned Castle of St. Joao de Arade. Heating and air conditioning units ensure all year round suitability and comfort. Safe expansive sandy beaches are on the doorstep and the unspoilt fishing village is a short stroll away. Fabulous for both adults and children. The heart of Ferragudo centres around the local square and cobbled streets, with good local restaurants in the village and along the quayside. Water sports, horse riding and golf are within close proximity, this location offers something for all members of the family. A car isn't necessary unless you wish to explore the countryside as amenities are all within a short walking distance.

The Algarve, Ferragudo: Situated to the south of Portugal, on the southwest tip of Europe, the Algarve has one of the world's most beautiful, unspoilt stretches of coast land and has been described as a unique jewel with the finest sandy beaches and the perfect sunny climate with a world-renowned reputation. The Algarve is one of Europe's sunniest spots and beautiful weather can be enjoyed throughout the year. In the winter months, when the sun goes down, if the evening is cool, then a nice log fire in the villa makes for a cosy setting. For some clients all that is needed is a low key relaxing holiday, for others the prerequisite will be a private pool and a large safe sandy beach for the children to play on, Ferragudo has something for everyone of all ages.

Ferragudo Village with its elevated structure and whitewashed houses, still provides all that's good about tradition and yet manages to meet the demands of its visitors without disruption. We are pleased to welcome back guests time and again.

Getting to Ferragudo: We have guests who arrive at both Faro Airport, Seville and Lisbon. The villa is about 45 minutes drive from Faro and we can organise for you to be met at the airport if you do not wish to hire a car. Car hire is not essential but collection is easily organised at the airport or can be arranged locally in Ferragudo. Some clients are met at the airport and taken to the villa and then hire a car locally for a few days only, if they wish to get out and about. For clients coming into Lisbon and Seville, the drive is about three hours and motorway most of the way. If you decide to drive, we provide information before you travel on directions to the villa.

Train is an option from Faro to Portimao or Ferrugudo but be aware that whilst the trains are traditional and clean in true Portuguese relaxed and chilled style, they do take a little time to get you to your destination.

There isn't a month that isn't beautiful in this location. In the winter months the bright sunny days are beautiful for long walks or for just sitting around in the village square having coffee and light refreshments. In the early months of the year there are often local festivals and it's a joy to see the local residents and their families enjoying the activity. Visitors are always made to feel welcome.

Golf Courses:

The villa is close to Alamos Golf; Alto, Gramacho Golf; Palmares, Penina, Pinta, Vale De Milho and Vale de Lobo golf resorts. We have clients who return to our villa year after year to play, some of them having other family members who prefer to go to the beach whilst the gofers go off blissfully knowing that they have as long as they need to play a round or two of golf. Some of the go.fing enthusiasts take their partners along with them to the golf resort and surprise their partners with lovely pampering sessions in the resort spa or beauty salon.

Activities for the family: The villa overlooks the beach and is within easy access of water sport facilities, a marina, zoos, marine parks, aqua playgrounds, diving, fishing, sailing, golf and horse riding. The beach is long and wide, the sea on the local beach is usually calm and safe for children to swim unlike some of the smaller beaches which surround the coastline. There are four excellent, family orientated beach cafes/bars offering good refreshments and sun umbrellas and lounge chairs if that is what is wanted. Beach volleyball and kite flying can also be seen frequently at the end of the day when the sun is going down. If one is really lucky, you will see a past Portuguese kite windsurfing champions in action on the Praire Grande beach, (the local beach).

From Ferragudo quayside, a small boat will take you for a few euros across to the Portimao marina where you can enjoy more restaurants, a luxurious beach facility or just a stroll along another beach boardwalk. Great for adults and children.

About Phillip or Janise

We are very busy people and have travelled to many locations around the world both on business and for holidays. After holidaying in Ferragudo for three years we purchased the villa. It is for us an ideal location to relax, chill out and enjoy ourselves in a lovely climate right by the sea with our children, grandchildren and friends. Not only are we overlooking a beach but the village is just a short stroll away where there are local traditional quality restaurants and the local cafes in the village square where our friends and family join us quite frequently from as far away as Australia and Honk Kong.

Why Phillip or Janise chose Ferragudo

It overlooks the sea and a large sandy beach. The short walk to the village means that everything is easily accessible. The local village has a local community and vibrant, relaxing and traditional qualities. It's quite unique.

There is always something to see from the windows, of the villa, fishing vessels coming back from sea, yachts making their way to the Marina. Children playing on the beach and of course the beautiful little village square surrounded by local restaurants, shops and cafes. Still very traditional and a place occupied by very nice, friendly Portuguese families.

What makes this villa unique

Spacious villa, very comfortable with great views across the bay. The location is prime and facilities are within walking distance. We have the best of both worlds, a private swimming pool and wonderful beach. It's rare that one can find the benefits of private pool, beach on the doorstep, sea views and all within the closest walking proximity of a charming traditional village with good restaurants, cafes and lovely local people. For those that wish to relax and do little, it’s the place to be. If you want good food, it’s a great location. If golf, tennis, fishing or water sports are high on the agenda, facilities are all close by. If walking is a hobby, then there are great cliff walks to be had.

Excellent Villa5/5

Easily one of the best villas we had and we travel a lot...It's APRIL and already 3rd holiday for us family of 5 this yr. 5 min walk to sandy beach with rock pools & photocard worth castle seaside restaurants, water park 30 min away, airport 50 min away...difficult to beat this. Villa is amazing....lots of space, well equipped kitchen, high quality 5 star decor and most importantly ready access to taxi via wilma and housekeeper Ana...its just a dream come true for us! Kids never wanted to leave and we will be sure to go back...special word of thanks to owners for all the info&help and for so thoughtfully equiping the villa to be trouble free-I can tell you its not easy - we enjoyed it thouroughly.

Amazing villa, brilliant location, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

3 storey villa - used by 2 families - 4 adults and 3 kids. Lots of space could easily accommodate more and very comfortable. Lots of information provided on area and amenities. Short walk to beach - paddleboarding and kayaks and 3 beach bars. Short walk to village - bakers, few shops, not too touristy. Great for families as kids could go to park after dinner whilst we had a drink. Highly recommended! We'll be back!

Lovely stay in Ferragudo

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 lovely days in this beautiful villa it had everything we needed and more.. there were 6 of us and we all felt extremely comfortable in our luxurious surroundings. Stunning views and selection of terraces add to the charm, the pool was heated which was a huge bonus we thought and it made a refreshing change to have a sunbed each!! BBQ was great we really enjoyed buying local produce and cooking it by pool. Lurdes is very nice and made us a beautiful Orange cake it was truly delicious and such a lovely touch! We enjoyed Ferragudo with its quaint streets and restaurants and everything within walking distance was so nice, Wilma picked us up from airport v friendly service and it made a wonderful change not to worry about a car for 10 days. We would not hesitate to recommend this ideal spot and hope we can return in the not too distant future.

WOW!! What a spectacular place. Roomy yet quiet!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely perfect place to stay.

Lots of room! Very quiet, especially in the lower bedrooms.

Very clean and well presented.

Cleaning was above par. Lurdes was a wonderful person to have come in. She made us feel like family. And the pool is taken care of too. He did a great job!

Four retired couples stayed and all of us said the same thing. "What an awesome place to spend a month"!!

The owners were on top of everything. Out of propane... No Problem..... Done.

Cannot say enough good things about this villa.

If you are looking for a great vacation and thinking of Portugal, this is the place you want to stay!

THANK YOU!!!!

Villa is amazing....lots of space, well equipped kitchen, high quality 5 star decor and most importantly ready access to taxi via wilma and housekeeper Lurdes ...its just a dream come true for us!

Owner's Response: Hi Hari, This has just come through, thank you. I’m pleased you had a good time and that we will hopefully be seeing you again. It sounds like you were very unlucky with the weather. I take for granted that when we go, which is at all different times of the year, that the sky will be sunny and bright even in the winter months and that there won’t be rain. In eleven years I’ve only been to the villa once when it rained for a day in May. Once again, thank you for your kind words. Janise

Perfect spacious everything you could need for a family holiday with all ages.

  • 5 of 5

6 adults and 2 small children were all delighted with the villa. It's position is great, 10 mins walking distance to the beach but its own lovely pool to cool off in and play and learn to swim. From the house always something to watch as boats go in and out of Portimao.

The villa is well equipped and well maintained .

Ferragudo in the Algarve is a charming and picturesque location that remains true to its Portuguese fishing village roots retaining traditional charm but yet close to the larger resorts of Portimao, Praia de Rocha, Lagos, Carvoeiro and Silves. Faro airport is just a short distance away and Lisbon is also another easy access route for international travellers. The heart of the village centres around the square which is only a short stroll away from the villa. With wonderful beaches, golf and sailing facilities, as well as the opportunities for long walks with breathtaking views, it's a wonderful location and ideal for those wanting a luxury self catering villa in a great location.. Local restaurants and bars provide good food and traditional entertainment. For those self catering but wishing variety, Portimao Marina restaurants are an excellent alternative to eating in the surroundings of Ferragudo village.

Other Activities:paddle boarding Kite surfing, sailing, diving, tennis, golf, canoeing

Golf: Already an area renowned for its golf, big game fishing, saliling and scuba diving.

Portugal provides an all year round climate which facilitates the golfing fraternity. Early morning and late afternoon golf is excellent in the summer months and with the mild winter climate, there is no restriction to what time of day a round of golf can be played in the other months throughout the year.

A great selection of courses are all within easy reach of our villa such as The Pinta and Gramacho courses at neighbouring Carvoeiro which is only five minutes away, as well as just a slightly longer drive to the championship course of Penina. There is over 20 courses within a 40 minute drive.

Keen golfers find that the location of this villa is ideal to combine both a beach and a golfing holiday and it also works well for partners and children who do not participate in the sport. Something for everyone.

One of the latest attractions is the Algarve International Racing Circuit (Autodromo International de Portimao) which hosts F1 and the superbike sports. Only a short drive away from this circuit our villa is well positioned to accommodate people who will be attending events at this premier race track. It's good to know that 2014 will attract this event again and the clients who attend.
