Ferragudo Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 8- own pool, large lounge, dining and kitchen

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 Castle of St. Joao de Arade. Heating and air conditioning units ensure all year round suitability and comfort. 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.

We are very busy people and have travelled to many locations around the world both on business and for holidays. We have had a property in Ferragudo for several years because 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.

It is right by the large sandy beach. There is always something to see from the windows, 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.

Big 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.

Fantastic Ferragudo!

We had such a fantastic time at the villa! The week we spent there was the highlight of our month long trip. I so appreciated all of Janis' suggestions, notes and all the info about Ferragudo. It was really helpful. Janis was amazingly thorough and emailed me many times to ensure all of my queries were answered. It was almost as if I were her personal guest. :-) (even though she doesn't know me at all!)

The villa was set up so nicely...we had everything that was needed....and the pool.... Wow....the pool was truly a huge plus. The kids absolutely loved it and my son, Pierce, actually learned to swim without flotation devices during our time there. The villa was clean, tidy and everything was orderly and easy to find.

Ferragudo is such a charming village and we really enjoyed strolling down the narrow, windy, cobblestone pathways. Our kids loved exploring the village. The gorgeous beach was about a 5 minute walk and lots of fun for everyone. The playground was a huge plus.

Not too far from the villa was one of our favorite restaurants, The Piano Garden, with the delightful garden views and delicious curries. The service was outstanding.

As for activities, our young kids loved ZooMarine , in particular the dolphin show, where the emphasis was on human/dolphin interaction. We also drove to incredible historical town. And we did a day trip to Evora to see the Cromeleque does Almendres, 100 + Standing Stones just outside the city. Wow! At 7000 years old, this magical place inspires the imagination.

We hope to go back! I would recommend this villa to anyone. :-)

Owner's Response: Every guest has a different experience to tell us. We love to hear how the children enjoy themselves as well as the adults and Pierce's time in the pool paid off, swimming without arm bands - wow!. A new experience for all and we hope to see you again sometime.

Three friends and I stayed in this magnificent villa for ten days in September. On arrival at Faro Airport we were met by Wilma of Carpe Diem and delivered to the villa. We were so impressed with Wilma that we booked her for two days to take us to Lagos and Sagres and to Monchique. These trips were delightful and extremely good value. On arrival at the villa we could immediately see that the listing had not exaggerated; we were met by the treasure of a housekeeper, Lurdes, and shown around. Lurdes visited us the following day to ensure that we had everything we needed and then again to clean a few days later. She also baked us a beautiful traditional orange cake! The villa was scrupulously clean and was so well equipped. The pool area was a delight and we made full use of it in the gorgeous weather! I really can't speak highly enough of this rental and would have no hesitation in recommending it. It was also situated very conveniently for walking into the village which had many excellent restaurants, most of which we sampled! We took the little ferry across to Praia da Rocha one day which was very convenient. Two of us had massages/reflexology when we were there and, to our delight, there was a masseuse working on the Praia Grande Beach very close to the villa. The beach restaurants are also well worth a visit, one having live music. All in all, a most delightful and relaxing ten days. We all agree that we will be back very soon!
Owner's Response: I'm so pleased your holiday was a great success and the efforts I go to to ensure that clients are well informed and comfortable are worth it when we receive a lovely review like yours. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you and your friends next year.

What a truly fabulous place to stay! My family and I had a lovely summer holiday in Ferragudo. When we arrived at the airport we were immediately met by our transfer ( a lovely lady by the name of Wilma) who whisked us to our destination. On arrival at the villa, we were met by the housekeeper who showed us around and made us feel very welcome. The villa was superb in character and was spotless. The bedrooms were spacious and the appliances were of the highest standard ( think they were Bang & Olufsen!). The swimming pool was warm and clean and the views of the beach added to the excitement. The location of the villa was excellent. Five minutes from the beach in one direction and the same to the town square the other, we enjoyed the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of Ferragudo. Coming off of the beach as the sun set, it was nice to have a choice of a BBQ at the villa or sampling one of the local restaurants. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone staying in Ferragudo. In fact my friends and I will be coming back soon to play some golf! All in all, a wonderful base! Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Andrew, it was good to speak with you yesterday and I've marked the diary out for your family holiday next year.

I can really recommend this villa and location for a lovely and peaceful get away. We are a family of 5 with three small children and found the villa to be spacious, very clean and well equipped. Our kids loved the pool, which was heated to a lovely temperature. The view from the terrace is lovely. A 5 minute walk up the road will lead you to a couple of restaurants on the gorgeous beach overlooking a beach park for the kids. Further afield there are lots of other nice beaches, we loved Praia de Rocha beach. The villa was also perfectly placed to visit Splash and Slide and ZooMarine (a must!). Can wholeheartedly recommend this villa, we didn't want to leave :)
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and I think you'll agree that Ferragudo is a special place and that our villa is probably one of the best located properties in the area. Overlooking the beach and sea, there's always something to look at of interest and the days can be as fun filled or as relaxing as one wishes.

We had a really great holiday - the villa met all our needs and exceeded our expectations - it was well equiped and furnished and spotlessly clean. The housekeeper looked after us well. It was a great location for the kids - they loved the pool and the nearby beach. We regularly walked in to the village for lunch or dinner at some lovely restaurants which is just what we like to be able to do. When we didn't feel like going out the gas BBQ came in really handy.

We have recommended the villa to our friends and it would definitely be used again by us if we ventured back to Portugal.

Thank you and congratulations on having such a lovely holiday villa.

Jo, Berkshire
Owner's Response: Jo, again we're so happy that a family had a great holiday. Thank you.

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. WE ALSO HAVE OUR OWN WEBSITE, PLEASE CONTACT US FOR DETAILS.

Other Activities: Kite surfing, sailing, diving, tennis, golf

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.
