Stunning apartment with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a very relaxing holiday at the end of September. I found the apartment ideally situated in the wonderful village of Ferragudo, where the locals are friendly and down to earth who made us feel very welcome. Eating out was affordable with good range of choice. I had some of the best fish I’ve ever eaten! One of the highlights was definitely sitting on the balcony admiring the stunning view, I watched the racing yachts depart the Marina; the local fisherman arriving back with their catch of the day and the odd recreational dinghy sail by. The Clube Rio apartment is truly stunning, modern, large balcony, shared pool, close to the beach, bars and a wide range of fabulous restaurants. I will be returning!

It,s probably the best family holiday we have had

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family loved this apartment.

We like to see as many places as possible so said that we would never go to the same holiday destination twice- until we stayed here! We have now been three times!!! The apartment is huge, meaning there is always a quite space to escape to if it rains and you are stuck inside (which is very rare). The new addition of air con in all areas was appreciated. The apartment was fully equipped: dishwasher, DVD (surround sound) and a kitchen capable of dealing with a dinner party. Having two bathrooms is great with children although the spa bath was sadly not working. The place has been spotless each time we arrive and the mid-week cleaning service allowed us to really relax. The 20m+ designer pool is apparently ‘shared’ but we usually had it to ourselves. The water was a cold dip in April but was outstanding in late May and in august. We used it as a pre-dinner refresher after days at the beach.

Although the apartment was amazing, the view was the highlight. We are yet to tire of watching the sun set over the river (Rio Arade) and the distant marina and relative metropolis of Portamao (easily accessible by ferry if you are inclined to retail therapy). Having your own mini ‘New york skyline’ while staying in what has been called the last traditional fishing village of the Algarve is very special. Looking out at the Atlantic you have a prime view of ‘São João do Arde’, a splendid 17th century castle.

Even with a seven year old, we were easy walking distance from several beaches, fresh coffee, bakeries, corner stores, restaurants and the village center. Our favourite was waiting till the tide was nearly fully out and walking (crab hunting) around the front of the castle to the beach café. Here you get cheap beer and wine while your feet rest in the sand and the kids splash in the small waves. If you tire of this a car lets you explore further afield (canieros beach was magnificent) but, really, we did not often get tired of this!

Our fourth visit is likely…

Ferragudo is a charming unspoilt fishing village close to Carvoeiro. Shops, restaurants and water sport activities, beaches are within short walking distance. Golf courses and tennis courts are just a short drive away. With the motorway now complete, everywhere in the Algarve is now within an hours drive. Beautiful Seville and Lisbon are only 2.5 hours drive.

From Clube rio, walk up the hill with the church on your left; in front there is a laundry, carry on for a few meters and you will find a mini-market. If you carry on and fork left at fist turning, you will find yourself in the heart of Ferragudo village. Here you will find the post office, bank, many snack bars and numerous restaurants.

Other Activities: Swim with dolphins at Zoo Marine is a must!
