Overview

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.

About Philip or Janis

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.

Why Philip or Janis chose Ferragudo

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Janis



Just wanted to let you know what a lovely holiday my family and I had in your villa recently.



The weather was perfect couldn't have asked for better, the village of Ferragudo delightful, everything we needed close by as you explained.



The villa is lovely, well stocked with everything and such lovely views across to the sea and castle.

Didn't manage to eat at all the restaurants but tried a lot and all were good. Wilma very helpful and transfers all went smoothly.



Lourdes always helpful



The beach was the highlight of the holiday especially for the children, I could have watched them day and night enjoying themselves digging in the sand and running in and out of the sea jumping the waves.



Had a lovely time and thank you again for all your help booking. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.



Hope you are well

Kind regards

Fantastic Ferragudo!

  • 5 of 5
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 Silves...an 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.

A marvellous villa in a superb location

  • 5 of 5
We all had the best of times in Ferragudo. Conversations still linger on with us talking about our time in your lovely villa. What a memorable holiday for all 8 of us - topped off with the children swimming with Dolphins at the Zoo Marine, including 2 days there and the Slide and Splash. Really enjoyed the Nau Bar with live music and to die for cocktails! Beaches great too. We spent our last night in Armacao De Pera on the front of the boulevard looking over at Ferragudo saluting our villa. The housekeeper Lurdes was very discreet friendly and helpful. Our Goddaughter learnt to finally swim in your pool thanks to the shallow end and managed to swim 2 lengths upon us leaving!
Thank you for the information you provided before we left it was invaluable. I would recommend the villa to anyone who wants to visit the Algarve especially if it's luxury they're looking for in the best of locations

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased you had a lovely holiday and how good for you to see your Goddaughter learn to swim two lengths by the end of the holiday, that's some achievement. They say life is about the memories that we build, I hope your holiday was memorable and look forward to welcoming you back to the villa if you decide to return to the Algarve for a holiday.

Ferragudo Stay

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely holiday at this beautiful villa - it was absolutely ideal for us all (aged 2 to 67 yrs). So convenient to the beach and all the local restaurants.

The views from the villa in the evening were absolutely amazing.

Our only "complaint" would be that we would have preferred to have had the towlels changed a little more regularly - other than that we could not find fault.

Owner's Response: Dorothy, thank you for your review and your kind words about the villa and the location; it is pretty special in terms of overlooking the beach and sea and being so close to the village is a big plus for both children and adults.

Regarding the towels, I am so sorry as I can't explain as it's never been raised before and I know that our housekeeper would have sorted this out immediately had she known.

In your earlier email to me, you said that you will be returning, so of course I shall ensure that when we welcome you back that everything is perfect for you.

Owner's Response: Natasha, I guessed that the you and your girlfriends would settle in and find Ferragudo a great place for all of the reasons you mention above. I'm pleased you enjoyed the swimming pool and maximised the opportunity of sunbathing on the terrace, as well as on our lovely beach. I did say that the little beach bars are irresistible for lunch. I got your message about the dates for next year, just confirm with your friends and I look forward to welcoming you back. Regards Janis

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
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!

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.
