About Jean-Paul Duurland
We are Jean-Paul Duurland and Sas Hovinga. Since we spent our first holiday in Portugal in 2008, we wanted to buy a house here. It took us five years to find this great house. The name Vila Vida was born! In atmospheric Ferragudo, close to the sea, restaurants and in the neighbourhood of shops, golf resorts and tennis clubs, we felt us at home from the start! We do hope you feel the same! Sunny regards, Paul en Sas
Jean-Paul Duurland purchased this Villa in 2013

Ferragudo Villa Vida
We had a lovely holiday in Ferragudo. Beautiful villa that has everything you would need. Lovely village with some fabulous restaurants.
We spent the second week of our holiday on the Algarve in Vila Vida and we couldn't of asked for more from our stay. The property was impeccably maintained and furnished to the highest standard with everything you needed. The views from the property were to die for and we never tired of watching the boats bob up and down in the harbour.
We also ate on several occasions in Ferragudo - Fin do Mundo twice Ferrogood once aswell as having a bbq on the roof terrace.
We cannot rate this property highly enough and hope to return with the rest of the family in the future.
Thanks for your kind review. Happy to see you felt at home and also enjoyed the local restaurants.
Excellent family house
Great house within walking distance of town square restaurants and beach (15 mins)
The best beds and bathrooms
Fabulous views from rooftop
A great find
Dear Bernadette, thank you for your nice review. Great to see you enjoyed your holiday. Warm regards, SAS and Paul
Great place to stay in, enjoyed it very much!
We, family of 4 + grandparents, enjoyed our stay in Vila Vida house + appartment very much and the description was very accurate. Lovely views on the topterras and the vila has everything, was clean and has lots of comfort. Much information about the area and house is available. Within a short drive you have acces to lovely beaches and restaurants. Ferrangudo itself has just enough restaurants to start your holiday, but do look further for great restaurants in the area. I will recommend it to best friends and relatives for sure!!!!
Dear Peter and family,
Thank you for your kind review. Really good to hear you enjoyed staying with us and Vila Vida made you feel at home in the Algarve.
Warm regards, SAS and Paul.
House With The WOW Factor In Beautiful Ferragudo
We spent 10 days in this wonderful house and we could find no fault.
The house and apartment are fantastically well equipped with all mod cons and are both decorated beautifully. All eventualities have been covered.
The house a 10 min walk from Ferragudo, a quiet and sedate fishing village with a delightful square in which to relax and unwind.
There are some fantastic restaurants close to Vila Vida including Fim Do Mundo, O Velho Novo and Farragood.
If your looking for a livelier night then Portimao and Praia da Rocha are only and short water taxi ride away.
Finally I would like to praise both Sas and Paul (Vila Vida owners) who from the first time we contacted them to when our stay ended were both superb with no question or query being ignored or unanswered. They covered all bases before we left for Portugal and when we arrived additional information for both the house and local area were available in presentation packs to allow your visit to be hassle free.
Thanks for everything.
The Reid Family

Ferragudo is blessed and has some great beaches in or very close to the village. We can supply more info upon contact.
Praia Grande - Just a 5 min stroll from the villa, has a long sandy expanse which never seems to get crowded! Great for families as its within the breakwater, beach dips gently into sea.
Pintadinho - A great beach outside of the breakwater, its great fun to use boogie boards here. Caneiros - Not dissimilar to Pintadinho but larger. All Blue Flag.
