Originally a Cortisa (Cork Farm), the Casa and its outbuildings and grounds have long been retired from these duties. Today, the property is owned and operated by British couple, Jenny Flitton and her son Tom Parrott who have transformed the property providing attractive one and two bedroom individual self-catering cottages for adults only. A feature of this property is the landscaped gardens with large Swimming Pool and purpose built Pagoda to provide a respite from the midday sun. Over 30 restaurants are within 4 kilometres of the property and well stocked supermarkets are also close by. Centrally situated for touring the unspoilt Algarve and coast. Attractive town 2km away.
Growing up in Cornwall I came to appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the countryside. Its increasing popularity, however, meant it lost something of its aura and I jumped at the chance to move to Portugal when the opportunity arose to take on the challenge of developing a business with my mum Jenny. Having spent many holidays in the Sao Bras area, the prospect of making Casa Ferrobo a first-choice destination for discerning visitors was the ideal mix of work and pleasure!
Tom Parrott purchased this cottage in 2007
The rural Algarve is a far cry from the crowded coastal strip and harks back to the bucolic Cornwall of yesteryear - but with far better weather! Village life revolves around the seasons, the land and community spirit hard to match, whilst nearby Sao Bras de Alportel oozes the charm of an old Portuguese town. With Faro airport only 17 kms away, our lovingly converted old cork-oak farm in the limestone hills of the Barrocal is perfectly situated for exploring mountains, beaches and picturesque historic towns, whilst the rugged Atlantic coast, the wildlife-rich Alentejo and the Spanish Province of Heulva are an easy day trip.
With the beautiful hills of the Serra da Caldeirão rising beyond the pool and terrace and the endless beaches of the Ria Formosa Nautural Park just 25 minutes drive away, Casa Ferrobo is the ideal location for an active or relaxing break as anyone could want. Being off the tourist radar, local prices are as attractive as the landscape and our nearby restaurants and
bars are hard to beat. Being keen ramblers mum and I have developed a wide selection of self-guided walks deep into the wildflower-drenched countryside, exploring the captivating landscapes and discovering the rich heritage of this endlessly fascinating rural Arcadia.
