Luxury Villa With Breathtaking Views And Private Pool



Updated: 24-Oct-2016
Peaceful Location, 5 Minute Stroll To Village Square Or Praia Grande Beach, Car Not Essential

This fabulous, south facing property has been advertised on Owners Direct since 2010, includes off road parking and is built on three levels. The top level has an impressive lounge with large panoramic picture windows, a fully equipped kitchen, terraces and BBQ. The mid level has two spacious bedrooms, one en-suite and a large family bathroom. A sun lounge leads out to the private pool and mid level terraces. The lower level has another spacious bedroom with twin beds and an adjacent bathroom, garden terrace and patio area. As the property is over three levels and the stairs down from the lounge turn back on themselves with some narrow treads, we consider the property unsuitable for guests with mobility problems and extra care would be needed for very young children.

All of the outdoor patios and terraces are excellent for relaxing and watching the world sail by! Casa Andrea is ideally located being both a five minute stroll to the nearby beaches and to the centre of Ferragudo. Restaurants, bars and shops are all in easy walking distance meaning that you can enjoy your holiday without having to drive. Ferragudo is one of the last remaining unspoilt fishing villages enjoying all the traditions the Algarve has to offer.

About the Owner

We bought Casa Andrea in 2002 and since retiring in 2005 treat it as our main home. Retirement has given us the opportunity to travel and explore other countries but we always look forward to returning to relax at Casa Andrea. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to enjoy such a wonderful property and hope it will give you as much pleasure. Andrea and Paul.

Spacious and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We came to this lovely villa for a week of relaxation and that is exactly what we got. What we also got was more space than you expect from the photo's and the cleanest and most thoughtfully appointed accommodation we have ever rented. Because of the layout, full sun is available all day with shade achievable for those that prefer it. A short 10 minute walk to the village square in one direction with plenty of restaurants to choose from and an even shorter 6 minute walk in the other direction to the beach with beds for hire and a choice of beach bars. As long as you are able to manage these short if uneven walks a car is certainly not required. We will be returning next year and would not hesitate to recommend this villa.

We have just returned from our 2 week holiday in Casa Andrea. This is a wonderful villa in every respect. The views are truly amazing and the owners Andrea & Paul really have paid attention to detail in the villa and have thought about every need you should want. Perfectly located for everything. Numerous seating areas to sit and just watch the world sail by! The village and square with a wide choice of restaurants and cafes are a stroll away. Paula our host who met us at the villa on our arrival is delightful and so helpful. The food pack that was waiting for us was very much appreciated and plentiful. The thoughtful gifts that were given during our stay were such a lovely thought. I would without hesitation recommend this villa and thank you for making our stay truly amazing.

stunning villa, views and location

  • 5 of 5

couldnt find anything negative about this villa and locations. the owners have provided and thought of everything you could possibly need. right down to golf umbrellas, not that we needed them. stunning views from the numerous terraces and a lovely 5 minute wander down to the beach and village with its bars, cafes and restaurants. did some tours including a boat tour from the pier which was well worth the money. Paula, the housekeeper was very friendly and helplful and at hand if needed as were all the locals. lovely relaxed atmosphere in the village and local beach. highly recommend this villa for a chilled relaxing break

Excellent villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Andrea is probably one of the best equipped villas we have stayed in over many years. Beautifully presented as depicted in the photographs. They appear to have considered most people's needs and provided tiems we would normally purchase on our first supermarket trip.The welcome pack provided included a large bottle of water, wine, bread, butter, biscuits and fresh fruit amongst other things which just added to the feeling that they had gone the extra mile to ensure a pleasant stay. Paula the housekeeper was extremely pleasant and visited mid week to change the towels and see if we had any issues. Her husband was in charge of the pool and although we never saw him it has to be said that the pool is a decent size, very clean and a delight to swim in. We paid to have it heated due to being there in the early part of the season and it was a good move as the weather wasn't at its best. You have 4 terraces to sit on and from a privacy point of view we decided the back terrace near the entrance to the villa was our preferred spot. The walk to the village was about 10 minutes with 2 options either going over the top and walking down the steps into the village or walking round on the beach and coming out at the seafood restaurants on the quay.

There are numerous, good quality restaurants therefore within walking distance. O Canto was a favourite and the setting of Club Nau was delightful.

Are there any downsides? There are 2. The villa is clearly on 3 levels + you access the villa down steps from where you park your car. If you have mobility issues this is not the villa for you. A large suitcase rather than the current trend for small hand luggage cases with the spiral staircase from the lounge down to the bedrooms poses a problem. We moved all our stuff upstairs to pack our 1 suitcase as it was easier. The only other issue was the front terrace as shown in the picture as it is very close to the neighbours and you can be seen by them. The owners are aware of this and are trying to grow plants to minimise this aspect. We love our privacy and as there was only the two of us we therefore chose to use the back terrace which I have mentioned above.

However we would happily go back.
