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.

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.
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
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
