Great Villa in Fabulous Ferragudo

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable well equipped villa, lovely pool, great views particularly from roof terrace.

Ferragudo is lovely and unspoilt (long may it remain that way) with some great little restaurants. All in all the best Algarve destination we have stayed in.

Highly recommended for any age of family...would recommend a car unless happy to be by pool.

Perfect accommodation for all ages

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations staying in this lovely villa and it suited us all. The villa was spacious with plenty of outdoor spaces and more than enough room inside too. It is very well equipped and had everything we required, especially a nice coffee machine, lots of towels and a couple of lilos too! It had everything we needed for a weeks holiday and made our holiday in Ferraguda an ideal October break! The local shops were nearby and perfect, the restaurants were all amazing and there was plenty to do in the area! Lovely villa, lovely fishing village! Will hopefully return.

Fabulous view........

  • 5 of 5

We are regulars to Ferragudo and have been visiting for the last 5 years, this year we decided to stay in town here instead of within the Pestana golf villa's.

We will definitely be returning to stay in the village again,the 5 minute walk into the village and a choice of so many good restaurants was great and only a 15 minute walk to the beach we love to go to. Villa was all as described and the views were better than expected both in the morning and at night. 5*.

Many thanks.

Wonderful holiday in a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Girassol was a perfect base for our holiday in the Algarve. The villa was even better in real life than in the photos! The views are truly beautiful, we especially enjoyed the views from the master bedroom and the roof terrace. The villa was well equipped with everything we could need... The children particularly enjoyed the games room and the pool.

A short walk down to the village of Ferragudo and there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. Our favourite was definitely Fim Do Mundo, where we ate some of the best fish we have ever tasted! It is also worth visiting the bar at Vitors Village.. The views from there, particularly at sunset are spectacular. It was always quite quiet and the staff were really friendly and helpful.. Plenty of cocktails to try!!

We loved using the water taxi from down at the harbour to take us over to Praia Da Rocha. Would also recommend the Wildwatch Algarve dolphin watching trip which also leaves from the local harbour.

A big thank you to Maria for all your help and advice before we travelled and also to Corinna for her help whilst we were there. It all helped to make the holiday wonderful.

Stunning villa with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Villa Girrasol must have the best view of Ferragudo. The roof terrace is particularly good for a sun-downer. The house has planet of other balconies and terraces to sit and enjoy the views. It was difficult to decide which one to use. If you want a room with views then this is it! The house is well furnished with modern appliances etc and tastefully decorated. It is very near to the village centre, a short walk downhill to the main square. Plenty of restaurants including Sueste, one of the best in the Algarve, Fim do Mundo for incredible steaks, also Babalu and Faragood desefve a mention. Beaches are not far, a short walk away. I have the view from the roof terrace as my screen saver. Thanks to Corinna for her help.

Tar denne anmeldelsen på norsk, da det er lettere å uttrykke seg på morsmålet.

Villaen er opprinnelig for 6 personer, men etter å ha kontaktet eieren når vi skulle bestille, fikk vi lov til å være 7 personer der og Maria skaffet en ekstraseng til 4-åringen. Flott!

Vi var der i 10 dager, og ved oppmøte ble vi møtt av Ms. Corrina som viste oss rundt og forklarte alt for oss. Veldig bra!

Villaen er virkelig flott! Ren og fin og alt man trenger av utstyr! Noe som overrasket oss var at alle rommene og terrassene er større i virkeligheten enn på bildene! Takterrassen er mye større enn på bildet, så foruten å sitte i sofaen og beundre den fantastiske utsikten, kan man også ligge på solsenger der oppe også!

Svømmebassenget ble rengjort av bassengmannen 2 ganger under oppholdet vårt, og vi fikk også mulighet til å skifte sengeklær og håndklær. Veldig bra!

Ferragudo var en rolig og stille landsby, og det var akkurat det vi var på utkikk etter. Mange gode restauranter og hyggelige folk.

Og hvis vi skal tilbake til Ferragudo, vil vi garantert bo her igjen! Utrolig flott villa, hvor vi koste oss hver dag og som jeg vil anbefale til alle!!

Takk til Maria for meget flott service!

Veldig, veldig bra!

Ferragudo, one of the most traditional and picturesque fishing village in the Algarve, remains unspoilt with its narrow streets and old town houses.The beautiful river Arade runs straight to into the village where local fishermen trawl the Atlantic daily offering fresh fish and seafood to the local restaurants. The village square is surrounded by many small cafes, bars, restaurants, and local patisseries. You can also find butcher, fish and veggies market, grocery shops, take-away, ATM's. Crossing the harbour you will find the beautiful beach of Angrinha overlooked by the Castle itself and if you walk passed the Castle you'll find one of the finest natural sandy beaches, Praia Grande. There you find water sport facilities as well as beach side bars and restaurants. Historic towns like Portimao, Silves, Lagos and Faro are close by. The Portuguese capital Lisbon is only a 2.5 hr. drive away. Opposite Ferragudo is Portimão with its marina and Praia da Rocha with an exciting night life.

Golf: The Algarve is a golfer's paradise.

Golf enthusiasts will find many Golf Clubs within easy reach including Penina Championship Course which is a 15 minute drive. The two Pestana Golf courses, Pinta and Gramacho are at 10 min drive away.

The Algarve is one of Europe's premier golf areas. There are currently twenty-five courses in the space of 100 miles of coastline. During the last years the Portuguese Open has been hosted variously at Penina, Vila Sol and São Lorenzo, all of which may be included in the list of top European championship courses. Warm playing conditions and immaculately manicured fairways and greens are the norm in the Algarve.
