Fantastic property. Superb location.

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to Ferragudo, but first time in this complex.

We chose well.

It is superbly located, overlooking the river, beach and Portimao marina.

The apartment is fantastic, equipped with everything you could possibly want.

It is extremely spacious and well maintained.

Communication with the owners prior to arrival were simple and efficient.

We will certainly be coming back.

A golden memory of a gorgeous place- Club Rio

  • 5 of 5

I am more than happy to write a few words of praise for this beautiful apartment that myself, my brother and his wife stayed in for one week in June 2011. We are from NZ and came this long way for a holiday as my son and his young family were staying upstairs in another apartment. Tjis incidently was nowhere near as comfortable and attractive as 'our' apartment.

Being on the ground floor had several advantages: being able to look out over the garden and beyond to the sea; being able to open one of the many sliding doors and step outside or plop yourself down in one of the many loungers; plus having donned your togs a walk over the grass to swim in a well maintained swimming pool. We also used the barbecue every night as my brother likes to cook on one and he sat out there every night a beer in hand gazing out at the gorgeous view quite often so transported he burnt the meal! The sunsets are huge.

yes there were several people walking their dogs along the wide beach, and a few stray cats which I suspect got fed from the local fisherpeople, but this all added to the charm of the more traditional way of the village from the older inhabitants.

Each bedroom was well serviced and had plenty of storage space. plus a seperate bathroom each. The kitchen area was beautifully supplied with top equipment and cutlery, crockery etc Nice of someone prior to us leaving a few supplies like coffee, tea and museli. We went by a hired car to the local supermarket for further supplies. Only did one trip as we mainly ate in the local square or offerings from the barbecue with salad! Or tried the several local resturants out. Fish is often the main dish and presented in many interesting tasty ways.

Swimming in the sea, making sandcastles with my grandchildren on the beach beyond our terrace and under the grand castle, or driving to another beach over the hill for a change of scenery was all like a dream come true. Although intending to do lots of walks over the bridge to a neighbouring town or catching the ferry to a city I could see over the inlet I just didnt do this as lazying around was far more relaxing. Thank you to Eva for making this holiday possible, i will never forget it.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment in may 2011. There were the four of us and it was a lovely holiday. The apartment was clean and well equiped with everything we needed it was very homely.

The veiws were fanstastic and the pool area very clean with well kept gardens. We were visited on our second day by the property managment company who were very friendly and helpfull with any information we needed.

The square in ferragudo is great to sit and relax with a coffee and watch the world go by. The O'baril is a great restaurant to eat.

Overall the holiday was great, we great accomadation and we are going back again next year...

The Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Ferragudo and in Club Rio.

The apartment was in an excellent location.

There were lovely beaches nearby , & a quick drive from the apartment.

You could walk into town and have a lovely stroll, get your groceries or have a great dinner...wthout having to use the car!

The apartment was impeccably clean, large, well equipped etc. The kitchen was spacious, knives were sharp, great chopping boards, plenty of cutlery and cleaning items... great for cooks!

There was suitable garden furniture, BBQ, a lovely terrace with a great view...all rooms had a river/estuary facing view !

(All rooms had also great storage space)

To make it all the best there was SKY TV to put the kids on front og the TV in the evenings....

We can't wait to go back!!

Highly Recommend......

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this apartment 30 April 2008 for 9 nights. It was lovely, I was disappointed to read the previous comments by 'pooperscooper' from Swansea. We are looking to re-book and had to give you our comments. Here goes - we are fussy people trust me, this was our third trip to Ferragudo and first stay here but no means our last. The apartment is in a beautiful location, the views are unique and very well equipped inside, clean and spacious. We agree the patio furniture is tired and could be replaced as should the BBQ. We asked for new tools for the BBQ and recieved them the same day and a new coffee machine. We too did have a problem with the management agents not recieivng the visits that we were promised, but hey, chill we are on holiday but wouldn't want it to happen again as we did mention it upon our return. The dogs are part of the Algarve, get used to it or do not go. The decor of the apartment is contemporary, 'Arty' and tasteful. It is privatley owned and people must respect and appreciate this. Overall we only went out twice as we were happy to stay in the apartment and utilise the facilities. We liaised with 'Eva' several times by email prior to our visit and found her efficient and helpful. We would recommend this place to our friends and family.

Lovely Apartment but .....

  • 2 of 5

A lovely large apartment but not kept in very good condition by local cleaners/management. Some patio funiture in poor condition and dirty. Internal furnishings somewhat exotic and cluttered. Dogs roaming the beach and local streets leaving their mess behind were a constant nuisance. Beach in front of apartment not very pleasant because of this although there is an excellent beach just arond the corner. Two good restaurants close by. Locals very friendly.

Owner advised of the hygiene problems in the apartment by letter on my return to the UK. Several weeks later no reply received. Poor customer service. Would not recommend this property to a friend.

Owner's Response: Out of all the rentals we have had over a period of more than 10 years, 45% are repeat bookings and over 25% of guests have been to the apartment between 3 and 12 times ! This is the very first complaint we have received. Above guests did book out of season and booked at very short notice, still there should not be the need for complaints about the cleanliness of the apartment and we are having a serious discussion with our management about this incident, which we strongly believe to be a one off. As for dogs roaming the streets of Southern Portugal, this is a feature of an Algarve holiday, that I can honestly not do a lot about. What really seemed to have upset these particular guests, was the late response to their letter. Well, the booking was made bey e-mail, so was the rest of the correspondance - the guests were advised, that I was going abroad , so it was impossible for me to answer to a letter sent to my home address. I did take my computer to keep in touch with all e-mails and a response by e-mail would have got an immediate answer. As for our guests personal opinion about the interior design of the apartment, I decline to respond - look at the pictures and judge for yourselve, whether you like it or not.
