FAB-U-LOUS...... AGAIN!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd time back to Casa do Peixe. We were so excited about our return visit.
Once again we were met by Emma and Mike who made the Casa feel like "coming back home"
The fridge was full of goodies which was wonderful after our journey.
We ate out every night and had some amazing meals. Lots of fresh sea food !! All within walking distance.
We usually spent the morning on the sandy local beach and the afternoon by the pool where we were looked after very nicely by Alice. She cooked us fresh prawns one day which were yummy!!
Our food shopping was bought in the local shop which was a five minute walk through the cobbled streets. It was lovely to sit in a local coffee shop and watch the locals go about their daily lives in this gorgeous, quiet and relaxed fishing village. A real gem in The Algarve!!
The Casa was clean, tidy and was equipped with everything you needed.
Ferragudo has a massive place in our hearts and fingers crossed we will return in 2014

LOVED FERRAGUDO. WOULDN'T CALL HOUSE 'LUXURIOUS'.

Loved Ferragudo. Wouldn't call house 'luxurious'.
  • 3 of 5
We loved Ferragudo and will certainly return but don't think it will be to this particular property. It's very close to the excellent Praia Grande beach with it's handy restaurants, but it's a good 20-25 minutes walk to the village restaurants in the square which is a little too far in the July heat. We ended up driving there most evenings. The apartment was very clean and well-equipped on arrival and the caretaker Emma was very helpful. It was nice to have the library of books to borrow from.

However, we found the two bathrooms to be very dated and not that pleasant to use. There was also an overwhelming smell of must that lasted the whole week and we could still smell on our clothes when we unpacked the suitcases. The pool was also very tiny and hemmed-in and crowded so we only had a quick dip there once which was a shame as it's nice to have a pool to use for a few minutes after a day out.

But the main reason I wouldn't book again was because of how awkward the booking process was compared to the many other private holiday rentals we've used. I'm not the sort to want to ask annoyingly detailed questions before booking, I just want to confirm availability and pay the deposit. However, Amanda seemed to find it all greatly inconvenient, and had to be asked to confirm receipt of payment and provide instructions/directions to the house a few days before we travelled. She replied that she would check to see if she had already emailed these (why would I ask if she hadn't?) and would forward them on if that proved to be the case. However, she did point out that she was only doing the bookings as a favour for a relative in her spare time. But still...it doesn't hurt to be civil.

Overall we thought Ferragudo was lovely, just the right blend of traditional village and tourist facilities.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you felt the need to make negative comments and chose this forum to do so rather than tell us at the time, raise concerns with Emma and Mike at the apartment or directly to us when we invited feedback upon your return.

We do try to keep the apartment as contemporary as we can given the constraints of local suppliers. Our bathroom fittings represent the style that is currently available locally and we do our best to make facilities user friendly. It may be that the Portuguese style is not for you. I have asked Emma and Mike to investigate your comments about a 'musty' smell. We have never had anyone comment on it before so I am wondering if it could be the air conditioning which we provide free of charge. It is so efficient it can often make furnishings and clothes feel cold to the touch when left on for long periods of time.

It was clear from your email interaction with us that you have very high expectations of customer service and it was apparent that you were annoyed that you did not get instant responses on occassion. We do the very best we can to administer bookings in a timely fashion but, as you point out ,we do this part time on behalf of a relative. This allows us to keep prices very low. We have been letting the apartment for thirteen years now and have always had good interactions with our new and many returning clients. Given your expectations you might feel more comfortable booking with an agent next time.

I am pleased that you like Ferragudo, it is indeed a beutiful hidden gem.

EXCELLENT VILLA, EXCELLENT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we stayed here, and its so good we cant image staying anywhere else. The villa has everything you could need, and is in prime location, just the right distance from the beach on one side and the square down the other side. The pool is just right and food and drink from the pool bar is very good, staff very nice and welcoming. Its a quiet place but at the same time has loads to do, and many good places to eat/drink.

WONDERFUL SPRING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We booked for a month and stayed for two. Doesn't that say it all. Great apartment really lives up to photos and reviews and unspoilt location and really quiet in early Spring. Would definitely book again and recommend unreservedly.

AN AMAZING HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Ferragudo - Villa Castelo.
When we arrived at the villa we were greeted by Emma and Mike who manage the property and were very friendly.
The villa was clean, spacious and equipped with everything you could need!!! We then stepped out onto the large balcony and were taken back by the views. We were so happy......... What more could you want...... Well... The communal swimming pool was a few steps from the front door and was kept very nicely.
The village of Ferragudo was a short amble away passing the beach and walking through some very pretty cobbled streets.
We ate at some wonderful restaurents which served some very tasty seafood. Two of our favourites were O'Barrils and Velho Novo.
The beach was also only a short walk away and was kept very clean and tidy. There was a small play area on the beach for little children.
We found the locals very friendly and felt safe at all times!!!
My husband and I would highly recommend staying at this villa which is a close distance from everything you could need from a romantic and relaxing holiday.
We are currently planning our holiday at this villa next year.... Can't wait.
Thank you.

RETURN VISIT

  • 5 of 5
Our second visit to Ferragudo & Vila Castelo & we loved it every bit as much as our first visit! The property is a 'home from home', with everything you could possibly need provided, and is in an excellent location for all that Ferragudo has to offer! If you can tear yourself away from the wonderful terrace, the pool is 30 seconds from the house and the beach only 5 minutes walk away. The village centre is a 10 minute stroll and there are plenty of excellent bars and restaurants in which to have a meal and a drink (or two!). A couple of new places have opened since our last visit, both of which are well worth visiting...
Tempo Senang - Indonesian restaurant, just up from the pharmacy
O Canto - just behind the main square.
Mike & Emma, who look after the property, are really friendly & helpful and arranged transfers for us from the airport so we didn't bother hiring a car. All in all, a lovely holiday and we hope to return.
