Luxury Villa With Private Pool, Perfect Village Location Fully refurbished, wifi



Updated: 15-Sep-2016
Fabulous Location, 5 Mins Walk To Beach And Restaurants. 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10-12

Casa Rosina’s spacious accommodation is equipped with all the facilities a modern family needs to enjoy their holiday. When staying - our house is your house. The kids can stay entertained playing with body boards, pool toys, board games, video games and DVDs, while the parents relax around the pool or share sun-downers at the relaxing poolside bar/lounge area. We have now completely refurbished Casa Rosina since taking it over in 2007 and we still look to improve it further each year. Feedback from our guests is really appreciated. The decor is simple bright and modern and the villa is very well equipped for large groups and for entertaining both inside and out by the pool. We have invested in good quality divan beds which can be pushed together to make good king-size doubles or pulled apart for single occupancy. We have bought hotel quality white Egyptian bed linen and towels which are professionally laundered at each changeover. The unique positioning of Casa Rosina within the village offers an easy 5 minute walk to the beach and a 2 minute walk from the bars and restaurants of the central square - forget the car. Our villa is but a short meander up the cobbled streets from the village square and quayside up past the church. Ferragudo is reported to be the most photographed village in the Algarve. Its unspoilt cobbled streets and picture postcard houses blend seamlessly with the local bars and restaurants. The unique atmosphere of Ferragudo is created by a blend of village life and the small local fishing business that supplies fresh fish to the numerous restaurants.

About the Owner

Hi we are sisters in law. Between us we have four children from ages 13 to 21, two husbands, three dogs and a cat! The children share grandparents who live permanently in Ferragudo so we love to holiday together and have done so for the last sixteen years. 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. I manage the bookings and pride myself on adding that extra touch to make planning your holiday that much easier and reassuring. We have plenty of help managing the villa, nothing is too much trouble from providing numerous birthday cakes (40th, 50th, 60th and 70th's so far....) contacts for restaurants or coordinating other villas for large groups of wedding guests. We ourselves like to try a different adventure or activity each year (from mountain biking, buggy driving, and sea kayaking to local spa's) We still have climbing, horse riding and plenty more on the 'to do' list.

Long weekend away

  • 4 of 5

Villa was really well located, walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants, pool was nicely heated and of a reasonable size. Rooms were all a good size. Downstairs room could be joined or separate so good for a family. Great place for adults or older children to enjoy. Not too much space around the pool so probably not as suitable for families with young children who want to run around. Would definitely stay again with friends.

Fabulous villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous villa Casa Rosina is and what a brilliant base for our Portuguese holiday. The quality of accommodation was excellent - super comfortable beds and pillows, a well kitted out kitchen with everything we could possibly need, great BBQ and pool area, and (our favourite) a fabulous chill-out zone and bar area by the pool. It's perfect for families with older kids and, being a town house, you get super fit walking up and down all the stairs! Location-wise it's the perfect Villa, a short walk downhill/steps to the village square and shops, easy walk to the beach and water-taxis to the inflatables round at Praia de Roche and a 15 minute drive to the Aqua park - perfect! We truly had a fabulous holiday and hope to use this wonderful villa again next time we're holidaying in Portugal.

Great villa in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

Group of ten adults stayed for a week, the villa was very clean and very well equipped. Great outdoor spaces and a lovely pool, quiet area with a short walk to bars and restaurants all which were good and not expensive. Very friendly place to stay, everyone in the group said they would love to return as a week not long enough. Thanks to Gina for a very smooth booking

Lovely villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A group of 4 adults and one toddler visited Casa Rosina for 1 week at the end of September. We chose the villa due to the location and not needing a car.

We were really pleased that it was just a 5 min walk to the centre of Ferragudo which is a lovely little village that has many restaurants, cafes, bars to keep you entertained. We ate out 5 times and all the restaurants were good.

The supermarket in the square has a great butchers for BBQ's which we did a couple of times. It also stocks great wine for only a couple of euros.

We got the water taxi over to Praia de Rocha a couple of times and we did a Dolphin Watching trip too.

The pool is lovely but was a little chilly. We went in it every day and my toddler loved the buckets and spades and pool toys. The beach is spotless and has a couple of great beach bars that serve good food.

Gina was really helpful and made sure we felt at home. The villa is well stocked and all the bedrooms are lovely. The pool gets sun all day and then we would retire to the balcony for a few glasses of wine.

I would highly recommend Casa Rosina and we will certainly come back again. The place is beautiful and very welcoming. The guys in our group played golf 3 times and used a local taxi company to get to and from the courses which were all within 5kms.

Thanks Gina and her team for an amazing and relaxing holiday that has converted us to always choosing villas from now on.

Owner's Response: What a great review, we love that our guests enjoy our villa as much as we do! Sorry the pool was a bit chilly, September is a tricky month, as it's borderline as to whether the pool heating is necessary. Maybe we should have erred on the side of caution in this instance, as there was a toddler, and added it, as it can always be turned off if it is not needed. Our house manager is on call for our guests throughout their stay. Glad you have been converted, villas are the way to go! Plenty of private space in a great location and well equipped for entertaining. We look forward to your return.

From the Owner

We saw the house for sale, unexpectedly, on a weekend trip away and just thought it was perfect for families holidaying together, as we do. Ferragudo is a perfect location. We can get everywhere by foot. Beach and beach bars by day, and the village square with its bars, restaurants and entertainment by night. We no longer hire a car, which is great for larger groups, we just choose where to meet up with each other. We can arrange airport transfers with a local firm on request. Ferragudo is unspoilt but with plenty to do and gets better each time we visit. The busier resort of Praia da Rocha and the town of Portimao are easily accessible by water taxi, a short ride across the river. For trips further out we use a very reliable local taxi firm. We love to play tennis and have tried organized mountain bike and kayak tours.

From the Owner

Benefits include the large private pool, a must for the children and adults alike in the Algarvian sunshine. There is ample space for entertaining at Casa Rosina. We often BBQ by the pool in the evening and then walk down to the village square for a few drinks. Or we eat out and then end up by the poolside bar for a nightcap or more usually a cup of tea! We have a covered outdoor lounge area with rattan suite. Our villa is well equipped and has recently benefited from a complete refurbishment, including new beds, sofas, TV, BBQ, stereo,hotel quality linen, towels and soft furnishings. The locals are very friendly. We often find that our clients have met friends of ours out there, we try not to get jealous! We have also had many compliments about our house manager Corinna who is very helpful and lives locally, so is available to our guests whilst staying at Casa Rosina, should the need arise.
