LUXURY 4 BEDROOM VILLA W/POOL AND SEA VIEW NEAR BEACH AND VILLAGE

Ferragudo Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8-10

This luxury villa built in 2008 is ideal all year for the retired, families on maternity/paternity leave and as a holiday home for one or two families with children. The villa has three bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs. It enjoys the sea breeze of summer, but air co/heating is fitted. A high quality Keller kitchen is fully equipped. The living room has a fire place, two sofas and a dinner table for 12. The furniture is contemporary Scandinavian. Two bathrooms are upstairs and one downstairs. Wireless internet is included.

Outside is a spacious wooden deck and a 10x5 m overflowing pool with underwater lights. Great sea views. The villa has a beautiful garden and there is no traffic noise.

Three great beaches are a ten minutes walk away, and it is a short drive (or 20 min walk) to the square of Ferragudo village. Several restaurants and mini-market are within short walking distance, Gramacho and Pinta golf courses a short drive away.

Things to see and do with a car: The Slide&Splash water park is a 15 minute drive away from the house. Go ten minutes further and you will find Aqualand and Zoomarine, which has a fantastic dolphin show. Silves, Monchique and Sagres are great places to visit. Silves is dominated by Silves castle, a thrill for children! Monchique is known for the spa that is at least 2000 years old. Sagres marks the South-Western tip of Europe. The Romans called it 'the end of the world where the waters of the ocean boil at sunset'.

The boat tours that leave from the quai of Portimao explore the caves and coast of the area. Some offer dolphin watching, deep sea fishing etc. Chldren will love the pirate ship trip!

Fans of motor-racing will enjoy the new Formula 1 test circuit in Portimao. Quieter, but no less interesting are the megalith tombstones including the neolithic chamber tomb in Alcalar, close to Portimao.

Lagoa is one of the main wine producing areas of the Algarve. Wine tasting daily at Adega.

These are just a few examples of things to do on a day off from the beach. Visit one of the many web-pages from the Algarve and Ferragudo/Portimao region to get more ideas

Things to see and do within walking distance: Do not forget attractions within walking distance. Ferragudo is an unusually pleasant village and you easily spend a lazy afternoon at a cafe table in the village square Praça Rainha Dona Leonor. Every second Sunday of the month there is a flea market in the village.

Praia Grande is said to have dinosaur footprints at its South end, but we haven't found them. Sao Joao de Arade is a picturesque castle right on the beach on the North side. Some say it looks like a sand castle, and we don't disagree. There is a footpath from Ferragudo through Praia Grande to the next beaches, Praia do Molhe and Praia do Pintadinho next to the lighthouse at Ponta do Altar. Take a stroll to the lighthouse one evening to watch the sunset! Next to the lighthouse is a natural pit from which you can hear, and partly see the sea far below. It is amazing and slightly scary.

The foot-path continues to Praia dos Caneiros and further to Carvoeiro via the remains of a medieval watchtower.

Scandinavian ownership: The villa is owned by a Scandinavian family. English and Scandinavian are spoken.

Our family is Norwegian and lives in Oslo. We use the house for holidays and sometimes as location for work (since we have independent, research based jobs), but it is a pleasure to let the house to others when we are not there ourselves.

Haakon purchased this villa in 2008

We had been vacationing in Portugal as well as in Spain, Greece and elsewhere, but when the time came to aquire something ourselves we decided the Ferragudo-Carvoeiro area was the best area we'd been to. We particularly like the unspoilt and unbuilt land areas from the lighthouse towards Carvoeiro, we like the ever changing pattern of flowers, and we like the fact that Portugal (almost) never becomes too hot in summer.

The design of our house is quite special, with curvy shapes everywhere. It reminds us of drawings from a well-known children's book in Norway, hence the untranslatable name Casa Kardemomme. However the main attraction of the house is the garden with a fantastic variety of flowers, and the pool. We also like our ocean view from the breakfast and evening terraces. Actually the ocean view was an important reason we bought this particular house. The garden was not finished at the time.

FANTASTISK OPPHOLD

  • 5 of 5
Casa Kardemomme er virkelig fantastisk. Huset overgikk alle forventinger - rent, ryddig, vakkert basseng- og hageområde, med alle tenkelige fasiliteter. Her har barn og voksne i alle aldre (11-75 år) kost seg masse. Håkon har vært veldig ryddig i hele prosessen: fulgt opp og passet på slik at vi har fått all nødvendig informasjon. Veldig bra.
Anbefaler alle å leie Casa Kardemomme - det ligger også helt nydelig til i en vakker landsby. Flotte turområder, vakre strender og hyggelige restauranter i nærheten. Vi leide bil, og det var veldig praktisk både i forhold til å komme seg til og fra flyplass, og også for å se litt av Algarvekysten

OUR PARADISE....

  • 5 of 5
We have found our vacation-paradise in Ferragudo. We have rented Casa Kardemomme for four years now and can`t think about a better place to be spending our holiday.
The property is very beautiful and clean. Our children loves the pool and the beaches in the area is also very nice.
Haakon, the owner, is friendly and reliable. If any little problem accurs we always can trust in Haakon.
Algarve offers many activites. Zoo Marine and Slide & Splash has been favorites that we always returns to.
We have only good things to say about Casa Kardemomme and neighborhood and looking forward our next stay in Casa Kardemomme:)

GREAT HOUSE IN A FANTASTIC AREA!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this great villa for 18 days from May 11th 2013. We were 4 adults and three young children (aged 1-5). The house is very spacious and we have never stayed in a (rental) house so well equipped, and it is obvious that the owner put a lot of effort into making the guests feel welcome and happy during the stay. Among other things there are a barbeque, bikes, pool toys, tennis rackets, coffee machine etc etc. The breakfast terrace was really nice for a long and good breakfast (with sun). From about 10 in the morning the spacious pool area was in use all day, and the pool is as clean as it can possibly be! Upon arrival the owner provided us with all information we needed well in advance, and the road description with pictures we received made the trip from the airport easy. We had a rental car and could therefore easily check out nearby cities, beaches, activity parks etc. We also took day trips we can recommend to Lagos, Sagres, Tavira, Evora and Sevilla (the latter two approx 2 hour drive each way). However, we loved the beaches, the cliffs where you can have great walks or runs with the most amazing views, the pier, the lighthouse and nature in general surrounding the house. We found our favourite beach during our whole 5 weeks trip in Portugal 8-10 mins walking from the house. The Caneiros beach was superb both for adults and children, although there are some waves. If you are looking for a gourmet meal we liked the restaurant Gosto just 5 mins walk from the house. Great food and quite cheap as well. WIth children the combined italian/indian restaurant just up the road is great as the kids can run around in the gardens while you finish your meal. We spent a lot of time at the house as it was so easy to enjoy, and actually you do not need to look any further to have a great holiday with your family or friends if you, like us, prefer to stay a little bit away (still within easy reach) from the most touristy areas of the Algarve. We will definitely recommend this house to friends and family, and we hope to visit again sometime soon. Thanks to Haakon and his family for making this unique house available for rent.

EXCELLENT STAY IN A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The Casa Kardemomme is really a perfect place to stay. We were 2 families, 7 people, spending two weeks in Ferragudo. The location is very good and close to nice beaches and good golf courses, amongst many other things. The house has a very good quality, and the pool is just a gem. A very nice and well kept garden confirmed the impression of this as an excellent property. We will strongly recommend this house to families wanting a quite and relaxing place to stay when visiting the Algarve coast. The beaches are amongs the best in the region.

GREAT STAY AT CASA KARDEMOMME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed one week in July 2012 with a group of 9 persons (including 2 children), and had a most enjoyable time here. The expectations based on the description and photos in the ad were fully met. The house is located in a settled and quiet area, within walking distance to the beaches and a few restaurants. The lovely pool area (and the rest of the property) is very well maintained.

The owner provided an excellent follow up, both before and after the rental period. Based on our experiences we can highly recommend this property to others.

Try sardines and Cataplana (our favourite) at the beach restaurants; great chicken and meat at neighbourhood restaurants; quality fish as well as simpler fare in town. Children welcome everywhere.

A bakery and supermarkets are in town.

Beginners will enjoy the 9 hole par 3 course at Vale de Milho (15). Other golf courses on the Algarve are reachable in less than 45 minutes.

The villa is suitable for elderly, the only condition is that you don't mind normal stairs, e.g., to the second floor. Our parents 86 and 83 did fine when they were visiting recently.
