LUXURY TOWN HOUSE WITH MAGNIFICENT SEA AND CASTLE VIEWS

Ferragudo House Rental Photos and Description

2 Ensuite bedrooms, sleeping 6 (Inc 2 on Z-beds)

Magnificent sea and Castle views combine with elegant luxury to create this superb, privately owned Town House. Finished & furnished to a particularly high standard rarely seen in holiday accommodation, it is one of the elite beach front properties forming part of an attractive community called Vila Castelo. Located on a cliff side position, the house commands fantastic views over the beach, the wonderful 17th century castle of São João do Arde & the new yacht marina of Portimão. Golden sandy beaches are within an easy five minutes walk, as is the heart of the picturesque fishing village of Ferragudo with its narrow cobbled streets, quayside and village square restaurants bars & cafes. In this prime beach-front location, with air conditioning/heating units and wood burning stove in the lounge, Sky Satellite TV with UK free-view channels, means that this house provides ideal all year round luxury accommodation; providing great access to all that the Algarve has to offer.

Ferragudo Village: The village will provide for all your needs, whether you prefer to eat in or out of your holiday home. The local produce from the village butcher, fish market, bakery and Mini markets are delightful and offer excellent value. For those that prefer to enjoy the delights of eating out; the location, selection and quality of the various village restaurants is second to none. All clients are able to enjoy the Vila Castelo outdoor heated swimming pool with poolside restaurant/bar serving hot and cold snacks during the day (restaurant only open in Summer months).

Activities and Entertainment for all the Family : Within easy access are zoos, marine parks, aqua fun parks, diving, fishing, wind surfing, sailing, and a tennis centre with gymnasium. For walkers there are attractive coastal cliff top pathways as well as great inland walks. The beaches at Ferragudo are a favourite place for windsurfers and provide a superb spot for sunbathing, swimming, children’s activities or simply sitting in one of the excellent restaurants and whiling away the time watching cruise liners anchor off shore, or the many pleasure boats that ply the coastline.

Sky satellite TV with all UK Freeview channels offering entertainment for those staying in during off Season evenings. Internet Wi-Fi available at Resort for small weekly charge payable at Reception.

Getting to Ferragudo: Transfer from Faro airport is a simple journey of just 45 minutes by car or taxi. A taxi transfer can be arranged if you require. Hiring a car is by no means essential. However, if you do, it can be collected at the airport on your arrival and with a simple journey to Ferragudo, will enable you to take full advantage of the beauty of this lovely area. Information on hiring a car in Portugal directly from the UK, or details on low cost airline flights to Faro International airport, are available on request.

GREAT PROPERTY & LOCATION

Great Property & Location
  • 5 of 5
This is really well equipped for a rental property and it is in an excellent location with wonderful views from a very comfortable veranda that are far better than 99% of any of the other properties in Ferragudo.
It really is just a short walk to a nice beach (with 3 good beach bars), or a small supermarket and numerous bars and restaurants ranging from cheap to expensive, just take your pick.
There is also a very large supermarket about a 5 minute drive away.
If you are looking for a holiday in Portugal that is not all about late night discos but where you can still enjoy a drink and a good meal without driving then this is the place.
The next time I return to The Algarve I will definitely try for this place again.

Owner's Response: The location of the house is nice and quiet, even in August, but being in a traditional fishing village and only a short drive away (or by water taxi in the summer) from bustling night life of Priar de Rocha means you have access to the best of both worlds!!! Some guests have been returning on a regular basis for a number of years as this little haven is so easy to enjoy, not matter how often you have been before.

FABULOUS LOCATION IN FERRAGUDO

  • 5 of 5
My wife & myself stayed here for 8 days. It was our third time in beautiful Ferragudo, and the house was by far the best located, most comfortable and best equipped of the ones we have stayed in. The [very] comfortable chairs on the extended balcony from the lounge were particularly inviting.
The location overlooking the beach is fantastic, and so conveniently situated, being within easy walking distance of the village with its fabulous array of restaurants that a car is not really necessary, although it would be a shame not to visit some of the lovely beaches and other sites further afield.
Vila Castelo was fairly quiet for the end of June, probably down to the general economic climate but the square in town was as buzzing as ever, with live music most nights. Not being particularly big fish eaters we can't comment on the numerous fish restaurants along the quayside, but for other eateries we would particularly recommend The Rib Shack (great ribs, chips & salad) for 10 euros, washed down by the cheapest wine in town, the new Indonesian restaurant (formally Barnards) up the hill by the chemists, and for lunch (or just a sundowner) Kalu beach bar on Praia Grande is just unbeatable! Try also the newly refurbished and reopened Three Monkeys bar along the quayside for an evening drink. Very swish.
We have fallen in love with Ferragudo over the years and if you want a relaxing holiday but with more than enough places to eat and drink without having the brashness of many of the resorts in the area then Ferragudo is for you, and for comfortable and well equiped accommodation this town house is hard to beat.

FANTASTIC FERRAGUDO

  • 5 of 5
When I booked this hoiday I was a little apprehensive as no-one I spoke to seemed to have heard of Ferragudo but I need not have worried - it was all the website said it was - and more!!! Over the years my husband and I have visited many places but this was the first one we have intended to re visit without delay!! This appartment was a real find, the location was fantastic and the views from the balcony - out of this world, there was always something to see from luxury cruise liners to small fishing boats bringing in their catch. The balcony furniture was so comfortable that once or twice we did not even leave the appartment just enjoyed the sunshine and the views. The poolside bar serves excellent lunches, as good as any restaurant and very reasonable priced, they will even deliver to the appartment free of charge. I cannot think of one item missing from the kitchen, they have thought of everything you could possibly need and the welcome pack even included a beer and botle of wine, how lovely!! After having a very early start, it was great to be able to unpack and have a leisurely lunch in the sun whilst getting familiar with what was on offer in the area thanks to the excellent information pack that Ian and Linda have put together. We heeded tips from the guest book and this helped when choosing places to eat, unfortunately there were so many to choose from that we did not get round them all and will have to go back next year to have another go!! The beaches are beautiful and we had a lovely meal at Nau on the beach. Beware the sun loungers can prove costly at 11 euros a day for two, but there are two decks chairs that you can borrow from the appartment. We did not have a car and enjoyed the bus trip to Portamao, it was cheap, clean and picked up from right outside Vila Castela, it even ran exactly to the timetable. I have no hesitation in recommending this accommodaton, but please remember, I have first pick on dates!!!!!!!!!!

EVERYHING YOU COULD NEED IN AN IDEAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The house provided every amenity and convenience that we could think of many more besides. The view from the balcony was terrific both day and night and it was perfect to sit out, even in the middle of the day, with the sun-shade extended. Across the river, Portimão provided a great backdrop, especially at night but if you visit, you will be glad to return to Ferragudo! Vila Catelo was fairly quiet when we visited in April - we had the pool to ourselves most days! The village is a short and pleasant walk down quaint, cobbled streets and there were a multitude of large, sandy beaches within walking distance. There is a small supermarket just a couple of minutes away which provided for most of our requirements including delicious, fresh bread. There were many restaurants close by and we were not disappointed with any we visited, although we felt those tucked away in the back streets provided the best food and value. A folder helpfully provided in the house detailed lots of useful local information. I cannot see anyone being anything other than extremely satisfied with this house and its location. Thank you, Ian and Linda.

OUR WINTER IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We have had the great good fortune to spend four months in one of the most beautiful areas in the Algarve. The vila has a fabulous view, overlooking a 16th century castle and a lovely beach at the mouth of the river. From the balcony we can also see the ocean where at this moment we see the sails of a three masted ship.
The vila description is totally accurate. It is just as the owner has described and we found him most accommodating and helpful in making everything just right for our lengthy stay. The rooms are bright with lots of light and comfortable furniture. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals with a full stove with oven as well as a microwave, and a fridge with a small freezer. There is a dishwasher and a washing machine as well. We found books, films, and games to pass the time if we should need more diversion.
We rented a car for two weeks of sightseeing along the coast but otherwise found everything we needed easily available right in the village. The butcher has excellent meat and there are several small groceries where just about anything one needs may be found. There are many restaurants in all price ranges and all a short walk from the apartment. Some were closed in January but many remained open throughout the winter.
The city of Portimão is just across the river, we have walked there, taken a bus that stops just outside our door, and taken a taxi for less than 5 euros. There is a train stop in Ferragudo for the train that goes along the length of the Algarve and also connects with the train to Lisbon.
There are lovely walks along the cliffs at the end of the street nearby, two beaches within a few minutes walk, and the entire picturesque village to explore.
The weather throughout our stay (November through March) has been sunny and warm. Ideal for walking and hiking. Most days we could sit in the sun on the balcony in shirt sleeves. Occasionally we put some heat on in the early morning to take off the chill but for anyone looking for a winter holiday, this was perfect. We are sad that we must leave for our home in frigid New England tomorrow.

BEAUTIFUL HOME, QUAINT VILLAGE - SUPER!

  • 5 of 5
We've rented a number of homes in the Mediterranean and this was by far the nicest. Large, clean, and with great amenities. Fantastic views especially for dining on the balcony. Quick walk to the beach and to the shops and restaurants of Ferragudo. Nice pool in the complex. While it's not essential to have a car, we did enjoy a few days out - loved Silves, and the kids enjoyed ZooMarine. We also drove across to Portimao one day (free parking) and take a boat along the coast as well - beautiful. Ferragudo and surrounds were very friendly. Communication and transactions with owners were very professional.

Owner's Response: The location does allow you to choose from an active or more chilled out holiday. We also like Silves which is just a short drive away.............Cafe Englais next to the Castle entrance does a great Sunday lunch with live Jazz during the afternoons.
