Luxury Casa with Private Pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 21-Nov-2016
Casa in Ferragudo, Nr. Carvoeiro, Western Algarve - Peaceful Location Close to 4 Golden Beaches and Several Excellent Golf Courses

Casa Lirio is our own home on the Algarve set in a quiet residential area with its own off-street parking behind lockable gates and secure personal WiFi. It's a place to unwind with every facility easily to hand. Ideal for romantic couples, family holidays or as a perfect base for the many excellent golf courses which are nearby. Relax by walking to the lighthouse, across sandstone headlands overlooking the sea, or to one of the four golden beaches or 10 restaurants within easy walking distance. Several golf courses are close by (Penina, Pinta, Gramacho, Alto, etc.) The nearby unspoilt fishing village of Ferragudo has lots of small shops / restaurants in tiny cobbled streets (the village also has a pharmacy where English is spoken) and the square is a great place to relax by day in one of the coffee shops or bars (English breakfasts can also be found!). If you have children, two water theme parks and the ZooMarine oceanographic theme park are all within an easy drive.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Four golden sandy beaches are within easy walking distance - Canheiros, Pintadinho, Molhe and Praia Grande - and they all have their own restaurants/beach bars, one of which (at Praia da Canheiros) is rated by many simply the best fish restaurant in the area. Molhe and Praia Grande are calm, safe beaches - very good for younger children/toddlers.

If walking is your thing, then Casa Lirio is ideally situated for long walks across the sandstone clifftops or across the headland to the lighthouse.

Travel:

An easy 40 minute drive from Faro airport. Private car transfers from the airport can be arranged if needed as an additional extra. Lisbon is also a possibility at 2 1/2 hours, as is Seville Airport in Spain (about the same). Car hire is recommended in order to explore the area but not essential.

Distances:

The farthest point west (Cape St. Vincent) is just 45 mins away where you can explore the old fort at Sagres; or simply watch the sun set over the Portuguese equivalent of Lands End. Apart from Ferragudo itself, Portimao is 15 minutes drive (or walk down to the quay in Ferragudo and get the water taxi across the river Arade) - the lovely fishing village of Alvor is just beyond. Carvoeiro is only 10 minutes drive whilst Monchique is 40 mins away plus the ancient moorish town of Silves on the way.

Further Details:

One minimarket is available closeby (closed Nov - Feb), but there are also larger supermarkets within easy driving distance. There are too many good restaurants to mention, and several within easy walking distance - all of which are really child friendly with kids play areas. We have our own favourites and details/locations are contained in a book at the property; your only problem will be working out which of them you are going to visit in the limited time available to you! Cash dispensers are available in the village or at the golf courses.

For those of you bringing children, there are two water theme parks within easy reach ('Slide and Splash' and 'Aqualand' - both about 10 minutes drive) and also the ZooMarine oceanographic theme park (20 minutes) and Algarve Zoo.

Monchique is the tallest peak in the Algarve and can be seen from the house. A beautiful 45 minute drive will get you right to the very top .... from where you can look down on the whole of the Portimao area and go hiking if that is your thing. On the way down from the Peak you will also come across Caldes de Monchique which is a lovely restful and shady village built around the source of the local sping water. Take a picninc for lovely restful lunch and a few spare bottles so you can fill up with fresh water direct from the spring!

  • Notes on accommodation: This is our own house on the Algarve and we maintain it accordingly. We regularly refresh and refurbish the house; and this winter is no different... we've re-tiled the kitchen floor, added new furniture including brand new sofas, and the house has also been redecorated throughout. Satellite TV gives you all of the main BBC and ITV channels plus Channel 4. There is also secure WiFi at the house together with a personal safe for your passports, money etc, and additional locks on all patio doors, upstairs and downstairs. We have a policy of no smoking inside the house. Furnished to a high standard, it is suitable for small children with lockable gates front and back; cot and high chair also available (please request when booking). Outside: The 6m private pool is regularly cleaned and maintained. The property includes an outdoor BBQ and three other patio areas: one (with table and chairs) in full sun from morning to lunchtime, and one close to the BBQ (also with table and chairs) in shade for lunch but which also soaks up the evening sun. The pool area has sun loungers, deckchairs and sun shades, as does the rooftop patio which has a sea view to Praia da Rocha and beyond. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Linen and towels (INCLUDING beach towels) provided. Weekly maid service on changeover (and weekly for bookings longer than a week). Additional cleanings by arrangement if needed. Other: The most important rooms in Portugal are outside! Four separate patios fully equipped as appropriate with loungers, tables, chairs etc.
