Casa Oliveira is situated on a new well-designed development of small villas where unobtrusive and extensive views of the mountains of Monchique can be enjoyed. Only a few minutes walk to the pretty unspoilt fishing village of Ferragudo with Multi-bank points, shops, bars and restaurants. Across the river is the market and fishing port of Portimão with its marina and the beach resort of Praia da Rocha which can be visited using the Water Taxi available in the village. Eastwards from the villa is a short walk to the lovely beaches of the quieter Angrinha beach and Praia Grande where you can soak up the sun and enjoy lunch at one of the beach bars or participate in one of the waters sports which are readily available there. Casa Oliveira offers a home from home environment, superbly equipped including books and even inflatables for the pool to make your holiday hassle free and easy.
Villa in Ferragudo, Western Algarve, Portugal - Situated In A Non-complex, Quiet Cul-de-sac On Edge Of Village A Few Mins Walk To Famous Sandy Beach
Hi my name is Jan Murphy. I live and work in the UK and therefore do not get to visit the villa as often as I would like. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to enjoy such a wonderful property and hope it will give you as much pleasure. Casa Oliveira is a family owned villa and is used by the family for vacations throughout the year we therefore believe it has a 'home from home' atmosphere. It is lovingly looked after, having been recently refurbished and our guests to date all appreciate and fall in love with the property and it's location and tend to re-visit time and time again. We try to go at least twice a year and the rest of the time we like to think we share our villa and the lovely location with others! Many of our clients go again and again!!
Owner purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Owner chose Lagoa
My late husband found the villa whilst on holiday visiting his brother in Carvoeiro. We fell in love with Ferragudo as it has so much character. It is still very Portuguese and uncommercialised compared to other parts of the Algarve. It has everything you could want for an enjoyable holiday right on your doorstep! It is located in such a beautiful area, in close proximity to our favourite beaches and restaurants, and just far enough out of town to be peaceful and surrounded by open areas with magnificent views from the pool terrace.
What makes this Villa unique
Benefits include the 8 x 4 mtr private pool and extensive garden, a must for the children and adults alike in the Algarve sunshine. We often BBQ by the pool in the evening and then walk down to the village square for a few drinks where we like to meet up with the locals who are very friendly and welcoming. The villa is in a quiet area but with good access to public transport. The spacious property is gated and railings for child safety. The property has electric shutters and alarm which add to the security of the property.

Well equipped, lovely outdoor area and pool. Close to bars ,restaurants and a well stocked supermarket. The main beach is also within walking distance. Great for people with young families as everything you need is a short walk away. Will definitely return in the future.

Thank you for your lovely review Catherine. I am so pleased you both enjoyed your stay at Casa Oliveira and felt so at home. Ferragudo itself is in my opinion a hidden gem which makes you want to return again and again. The beaches are clean, locals are really friendly and the area is safe and picturesque.
Please feel free to contact me any time you wish to return. 😊�
Praia Grande - this is a big beach as its name suggests, this is the nearest to the house and is around 8 minutes walk.
follow the coast road along and you will find Pintadinho beach this is a popular beach which offers some afternoon shade, Caneiros beach is further west on the road which leads to Carvoeiro, this is another superb beach flanked by cliffs. It would probably be advisable to go to both Caneiros and Pintadinho by car, 10 + 15 minutes drive respectively.
Travel time from the airport to the house is around 45 minutes. Car hire is useful as there is so much to see and do and a fantastic coastline to explore, however it is not essential as you can walk into the town and beach and taxi's are available and reasonable.
Full directions are provided and we are also happy to arrange transfers and/or car hire for our guests if required.
Slide & Splash, fishing, horse riding, diving, sailing, surfing, swimming, walking, wind- surfing, water skiing and paragliding are available. These can be booked at the Tourist Information Centre in Ferragudo.
There is also a Spa Resort in Caldas da Monchique for those who just want to relax and be pampered.
Details of all the above can be found in an information booklet in the villa.
Life in Ferragudo revolves around the quayside square, the atmosphere is delightful and typical Portuguese. On the square there are a several bars and restaurants, a few shops including a fruit and vegatable shop, mini-market and also a post office and bank. On the way down the hill into town there is a bakery, a couple of bars/coffee shops and eateries. As you walk along the quayside you will see a range of fish restaurants. The fish is landed and barbecued on the quayside and served in these restaurants so it is as fresh as you can get it!
