About Phillip or Janise
We are very busy people and have travelled to many locations around the world both on business and for holidays. After holidaying in Ferragudo for three years we purchased the villa. 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. Not only are we overlooking a beach but the village is just a short stroll away where there are local traditional quality restaurants and the local cafes in the village square where our friends and family join us quite frequently from as far away as Australia and Honk Kong.
Why Phillip or Janise chose Ferragudo
It overlooks the sea and a large sandy beach. The short walk to the village means that everything is easily accessible. The local village has a local community and vibrant, relaxing and traditional qualities. It's quite unique. There is always something to see from the windows, of the villa, 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
Spacious 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. For those that wish to relax and do little, it’s the place to be. If you want good food, it’s a great location. If golf, tennis, fishing or water sports are high on the agenda, facilities are all close by. If walking is a hobby, then there are great cliff walks to be had.

Great villa and location
Can’t fault anything, exactly as described and perfect. Thanks!
Looking for someplace to stay in the Algarve, wasn’t easy. So many places to enjoy. Janis the owner made things so simple in dealing with the rental. All those little things make a difference, there were many. From the time we were greeted by Lurdes till we left the villa our time there was great. Restaurants, bars, grocery shops are all within walking distance.
Thank you. It will be helpful for others to know of your experience.
Another lovely holiday
This is the second time we have holidayed at this villa and we are sure that it will not be the last. It is modern, well equipped and perfectly located for the beach and village with its profusion of restaurants. Lurdes, the housekeeper is a godsend - efficient and friendly.
It’s always lovely to have clients returning to our villa fir their holiday. So pleased you had a nice time.

Beautiful villa in Ferragudo
This is a very comfortable villa in a beautiful location. Janis was very helpful and efficient with the booking. I left it rather late and was lucky to find this. It was the only villa I looked at but it couldn't have been better for our needs nor Janis more helpful. We were three generations visiting from three different countries so it was very special to be together for a few days. We didn't eat out at all because of our 10 month old granddaughter but it couldn't have mattered less. We had BBQ'd supper by the pool after an evening visit to the beautiful nearby beach of Praia Grande. It made such a difference it being so close by. It was my first visit to Portugal but I sincerely hope it won't be my last! I couldn't recommend Ferragudo or Janis' villa too highly.
Thank you Liz for your kind comments and I’m pleased the villa and location worked well for your family’s needs. There is something in Ferragudo for everyone and of various age groups. It’s all about individual families and individual needs that makes a holiday so personal.
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.
Other Activities:paddle boarding Kite surfing, sailing, diving, tennis, golf, canoeing
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.
