We had a great holiday in this lovely spacious villa, it was very clean and well maintained and had everything we needed. The sun terrace was amazing.
The beach and the restaurants are within easy walking distance and we ate out every night, eating lots of beautifully cooked fresh fish.
The Portuguese and very friendly and particularly so when we had a boat trip from the harbour to Silves. We received lots of interesting commentary from the boat owner.
Ferragudo itself is very picturesque with very narrow cobbled streets and traditional houses. We hired a car and were able to park easily in most places.
We would highly recommend the villa and we do hope to return
We stayed at this lovely villa recently and had a wonderful time. The owner was quick to reply to enquiries and very helpful. The villa was spacious and clean and only a a few steps from a lovely quiet swimming pool with helpful staff. Ferragudo is very picturesque and the beach & restaurants are only a 10 min walk away. The beach is lovely with great bars for a drink or lunch. There is such a good choice of restaurants and we were spoilt for choice, great food & reasonable. We will definitely be returning for another holiday in the near future.
My wife and I rented this apartment for 4 weeks, the whole of September 2015. From booking to arrival and departure everything went smoothly and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the property with its large sunny terrace and its location which is only about 5 mins walk from the fabulous safe beach and maybe 10 mins walk from this unspoiled village. The on site pool is only about 20 yards away and was quiet while we were there but it may be quite busy during school holidays.There is a good snack bar alongside run by Alice and her family who can't do enough for you.
If you haven't been to Ferragudo before you will be bowled over by the beach which doesn't seem to get too busy. As it is inside a breakwater there are virtually no waves and the sand slopes very gently into the sea so it is very safe even for small kids. It's all soft sand with only the occasional pebble There is also a lifeguard on duty but I doubt he has ever been used. Also 4 bars/ cafes but they never get rowdy.
Ferragudo itself has probably the best selection of reasonably priced restaurants we have come across, the quality of the food is outstanding and we were more than happy with all of them.
Don't worry about not speaking Portugese, every one speaks excellent English.
Lovely apartment,beach,village,food, people. Will be back next year!
Very comfortable, well equipped. Had a very relaxing few weeks. Would definitely book again.
Very clean spacious house with plenty of outside room. Very convenient for the pool which is only a few seconds walk away. Great to have air conditioning and a very large terrace. Plenty of local attractions and excellent restaurants including A Ria and Ferragood, which were reasonably priced. Also enjoyed taking the water taxi to Portimao and visiting No Solo Agua for its fantastic pool, food and drink! Another main attraction for the children in Portimao is an inflatable in the sea! We would highly recommend this area and this particular property to all.
We had a super relaxing holiday at Casa de Piexe. The owners arranged transfers from the airport which were excellent. We were greeted by Emma and Mike (villa managers) on arrival to show us round and get our holiday started. They had also left some unexpected food and drink essentials so we did not have to rush to a supermarket immediately which was fantastic. The villa itself is spacey and clean. The air conditioning worked well. The terrace is a good size with 5 sunbeds and a table for 6. The WIFI is a great bonus for us and especially the kids (aged 14 and 12)! The pool is fairly small but only got busy after about 3.30. The pool bar is managed by Alice and Sergio who are very welcoming. The snacks and drinks are reasonably priced. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to a lovely beach which has a couple of restaurants. The main square takes about 10 mins and has a good selection of restaurants. Mike and Emma recommended a couple of Portuguese restaurants which were great. All the food was fairly priced as was the wine. The nearest supermarket was only 5 minutes away and stocked all we needed. All in all a quiet and relaxing holiday.
