Casa Rosina’s spacious accommodation is equipped with all the facilities a modern family needs to enjoy their holiday. When staying - our house is your house. The kids can stay entertained playing with body boards, pool toys, board games, video games and DVDs, while the parents relax around the pool or share sun-downers at the relaxing poolside bar/lounge area. We have now completely refurbished Casa Rosina since taking it over in 2007 and we still look to improve it further each year. Feedback from our guests is really appreciated. The decor is simple bright and modern and the villa is very well equipped for large groups and for entertaining both inside and out by the pool. We have invested in good quality divan beds which can be pushed together to make good king-size doubles or pulled apart for single occupancy. We have bought hotel quality white Egyptian bed linen and towels which are professionally laundered at each changeover. The unique positioning of Casa Rosina within the village offers an easy 5 minute walk to the beach and a 2 minute walk from the bars and restaurants of the central square - forget the car. Our villa is but a short meander up the cobbled streets from the village square and quayside up past the church. Ferragudo is reported to be the most photographed village in the Algarve. Its unspoilt cobbled streets and picture postcard houses blend seamlessly with the local bars and restaurants. The unique atmosphere of Ferragudo is created by a blend of village life and the small local fishing business that supplies fresh fish to the numerous restaurants.

Hi we are sisters in law. Between us we have four children from ages 13 to 21, two husbands, three dogs and a cat! The children share grandparents who live permanently in Ferragudo so we love to holiday together and have done so for the last sixteen years. We try to go at least twice a year and the rest of the time we like to think we share our villa and the lovely location with others! Many of our clients go again and again. I manage the bookings and pride myself on adding that extra touch to make planning your holiday that much easier and reassuring. We have plenty of help managing the villa, nothing is too much trouble from providing numerous birthday cakes (40th, 50th, 60th and 70th's so far....) contacts for restaurants or coordinating other villas for large groups of wedding guests. We ourselves like to try a different adventure or activity each year (from mountain biking, buggy driving, and sea kayaking to local spa's) We still have climbing, horse riding and plenty more on the 'to do' list.
Gina purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Gina chose Ferragudo
We saw the house for sale, unexpectedly, on a weekend trip away and just thought it was perfect for families holidaying together, as we do. Ferragudo is a perfect location. We can get everywhere by foot. Beach and beach bars by day, and the village square with its bars, restaurants and entertainment by night. We no longer hire a car, which is great for larger groups, we just choose where to meet up with each other. We can arrange airport transfers with a local firm on request. Ferragudo is unspoilt but with plenty to do and gets better each time we visit. The busier resort of Praia da Rocha and the town of Portimao are easily accessible by water taxi, a short ride across the river. For trips further out we use a very reliable local taxi firm. We love to play tennis and have tried organized mountain bike and kayak tours.
What makes this Villa unique
Benefits include the large private pool, a must for the children and adults alike in the Algarvian sunshine. Great location, just 8 minute walk to the beach with activities, bars and restaurants, or a 5 minute walk down to the village square with many bars and restaurants. There is ample space for entertaining at Casa Rosina. We often BBQ by the pool in the evening and then walk down to the village square for a few drinks. Or we eat out and then end up by the poolside bar for a nightcap or more usually a cup of tea! We have a covered outdoor lounge area with rattan suite. Our villa is well equipped and has recently benefited from a complete refurbishment, including new beds, sofas, TV, BBQ, stereo,hotel quality linen, towels and soft furnishings. The locals are very friendly. We often find that our clients have met friends of ours out there, we try not to get jealous! We have also had many compliments about our house manager Corinna who is very helpful and lives locally, so is available to our guests whilst staying at Casa Rosina, should the need arise.

fabulous for family or friends holiday
Visited Casa Rosina with ten friends for a special birthday celebration. It was perfect 👌 the villa is spacious and clean with lovely decor. Plenty of room and different areas to relax. Loved the sun trap roof terrace for quiet reading and outdoor bar area and bbq which was very sociable. The pool was warm and beautifully lit at night 😀 Easy to book and nice that this villa is owned by an English family so communication was easy and recommendations of things to do and places to eat very forthcoming if required . Transfers also perfectly organised for us. Many thanks, had a lovely time. Ferragudo is magical, Casa Rosina is wonderful. Definitely be back next year and definitely recommend
Stunning internal layout, comfortable furniture and child friendly facilities
We were recommended to stay in Ferraguda so we looked for a villa large enough for 6 adults and 5 children, 2 of these were infants. We discovered this villa during our search and were not disappointed. The villa is laid out over 3 floors and has ample room for everyone with 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms. Large well equipped kitchen, though we ate out most nights but everything there to make other meals. We chose to have the pool heated during our stay as it was early in the season which proved worthy with having the little ones as they were in the pool everyday all the time, it was a struggle getting them out to have tea then go to bed.
It's location was in a quiet cul-de-sac which was ideal with having the infants in bed early and only a 10 minute walk into the main square where all the restaurants were brilliant.
The lemons on the trees in the garden were delicious with gin and tonic on an evening while sitting in the pool/bar area relaxing after a busy day.
There is plenty to do in the resort and this was the ideal base for us to stay and we would not hesitate in recommending and staying in the villa again
A fantastic villa in beautiful setting
Casa Rosina is a beautiful villa with plenty of character. Perfect for 10 people, we had everything we needed. Very spacious rooms and a great outdoor area for lazing around and spending times at the bar in the evenings. Ideal location to walk to restaurants, the beach, shops and beautiful Portuguese architecture. Can't wait to go again.
A holiday to remember - Perfect
The house was just perfect, beautifully decorated, very spacious. It was well stocked with everything that one could imagine that was needed for a perfect stay. We would certainly recommend this villa and we will be back that's for sure. Kristin who looked after the accommodation was on hand and available for any questions we had.
The villa was amazing. We were a group of 8 females, plenty of room for us all. The outside space was brilliant with plenty of sun beds. From the first contact with the owner Gina everything went smoothly it was like emailing a friend anytime I was in touch with her. Lots of information about the area and restaurants etc to visit. Kerstin the house manager was so helpful when we arrived. I would definitely recommend the villa.
Just back few days from villa Rosina we had a wonderful holiday there. The villa has everything u need for a relaxing time, plenty of space for our family of 10. It's just short walk to the square where there are lovely restaurants everyone was so friendly and food was excellent. I cant praise this villa highly enough and Gina was so friendly and helpful to us I will b booking again.
The house is situated less than 5 mins walk from Ferragudo’s main beach 'Praia Grande', the beach is one of the many blue flag beaches in the local area. Its clean water, golden sands, safe swimming and four beach bars offer something for everyone.
