About the property

Secluded Villa near to town centre and beach. Price reduction for 2 people during low season.

Casa Do Capitao is an attractive two bedroom semi detached villa positioned at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a small development in Ferragudo and overlooks open countryside with views to the Monchique hills. Ferragudo is a charming old fishing village situated on the eastern side of the river Arade opposite the well-known resort of Praia da Rocha and the market town and marina of Portimão. Ferragudo offers everything for a relaxing holiday and has an historic central square and quaint cobbled alleyways. The village is very well positioned for shopping, golf, tennis, soft sand beaches and other places of interest and activities.

There is a paved footpath from the villa that offers a short cut down to the village road with cafés, various eateries a general store and a chemist all less than a 5 minutes walk. A couple of minutes further along the village is the central square where you will find an ATM as well as many bars and restaurants. The lovely sand beach of Praia Grande is a 10 minute walk away.

We bought this property in 2018 and have made a number of improvements already. During this winter (2018) we will be modernising the lounge and dining room with new furniture. We will also be replacing the twin beds in the main bedroom with a kingsize bed.

The property is completely fenced and gated and enjoys a large well tended and mature garden. There are lovely views to the Monchique hills in the distance. The villa has a beautiful blue tiled heated swimming pool.

The villa is attractively and comfortably furnished and boasts some extras for visitors like air conditioning, pool heating, Wi-Fi with internet and TV reception, fitted mosquito nets and electric shutters. There are sun-beds with umbrellas and outside tables and chairs for 6 people.

About Katy Mears

We recently completed our purchase of Casa Do Capitao in Ferragudo. We think the villa is quite unique in that it's within walking distance of both village centre and the beach yet enjoys a quiet secluded position with a large private garden and swimming pool. We liked it so much we persevered for more than two years to complete our purchase.

We are Katy and Paul and we live in the Reading area in Berkshire. Our property manager is Rosemary Reynolds, she has been in the Algarve running a property management business for many years and she and her team are extremely professional and attentive.

We hope you'll enjoy our home as much as we do!

Why Katy Mears chose Ferragudo

We love this villa because of its location and gardens. It's located in a very quiet corner of the small comlpex overlooking open countryside and onto the mountains, yet its an easy walk into town and to the beach. There is lots of outside space to enjoy both sun and shade and we just love the garden!

What makes this villa unique

Very quiet, beautiful views and a large secluded garden with pool.

Jewell in the Crown (well Ferragudo)

  • 5 of 5 was my first visit to the property and having heard lots about it, my expectations were still exceeded.

The property was in a quite cul de sac with gated parking. A spacious garden and pool area, which had views over fields towards to mountains and was not overlooked.

Inside was as advertised and as already pointed out, exceeded the description given.

It was an excellent location for my exploration of the Algarve, which has changed somewhat having last visited the area some 40 years ago, being central to both East and West days out.

The town of Ferragudo, five minutes walk from the property, was unspoilt, quaint and there was lots to explore in respect of restaurants, bars and shops. The local beach was a ten minute walk with great views and a nice beach bar.

I would HIGHLY recommend this place to stay and I will be booking again in 2019, love this place.

Totally Impressed, what a find.

  • 5 of 5

The villa its self is fabulous, wonderful position with a huge garden and pool which could not be more private. Its owners have taken time and thought into its decoration as well. Its location in our opinion could not be bettered, its literally 5 mins walk into the fabulous square of Ferragudo with its range of resteraunts and bars, walk the other way for 7 mins and your onto one of the best beaches in the Algarve, Praia Grande. So pleased we found this gem, we will be back later this year.

The perfect place on the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa, perfectly placed for a 5 minute walk into the pretty port of Ferraguda with its restaurants, bars and beaches. The new owners have already started to invest in the property and provided excellent guidance and recommendations for a fantastic 10 days. After a day out sight seeing the large pool is ideal for cooling down, and the outside seating area perfect for enjoying a BBQ. Cannot recommend this place highly enough!

The nearest beach is Praia Grande, a lovely sand beach, which is a 10 minute walk away. There are several beach bars open for lunch and dinner.


Faro Airport is a 45 minute drive away. We recommend car hire at this villa but adults and walkers could well be happy without one.
