About the property

Villa in Ferragudo, Western Algarve, Portugal - Ideally Placed In A Quiet Location, Easy Stroll To Beach Or Beautiful Village Square

Casa Azure offers everything you would expect from a great villa. It has a fantastic position in a quiet location and is only a 5 min walk to the beach or 3 min walk through the cobbled streets to the restaurants in the village square. The spacious and modern villa is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The living, dining and all bedrooms having air conditioning. WiFi is available throughout the villa, there is a 40"plasma SAT TV with DVD, even the bedrooms have ipod docks. We'd like to think that we've thought of everything. The villa has the luxury of its own private pool and pool loungers so that you can soak up the Algarvean sun. Should you wish to float on a lilo then you won’t have to buy one as we supply those and a host of other pool toys as well! Whilst there is ample room to dine inside there is al fresco dining for eight by the pool. Our guests always comment on how much they enjoy BBQ fresh fish bought locally and relaxing underneath the stars.

Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was our third winter visit to Casa Azure and yet another great escape from the cold and damp of the UK winter. Casa Azure is well set up for the Algarve winter, which is both dryer and milder than UK. It can still get cool at night but the air conditioning and wood burning fire cope very capably.

The listing description is spot on and the facilities are absolutely fine. The house is well maintained and kept spotlessly clean with maid service once a week. My wife loves not having to do the laundry whilst we are there!

Perhaps what distinguishes this property most is the trouble that the owners take to make sure that everything runs smoothly. We have had one or two minor problems during our three stays but they have always been sorted out very efficiently and with minimum fuss.

We would most certainly recommend this property to anyone who enjoys the Algarve and particularly to those who like a village atmosphere that is not too far from the bright lights. The fact that we shall return to Casa Azure this winter for a fourth visit speaks for itself.

Ferragudo has a good selection of restaurants although some are closed in winter. We particularly like Farragood and Ras Meia Praia for higher end good valus and Portarade (in the square) for something less expensive.

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the villa exceeded our expectations. The photos on the website don't do full justice to the actual size. We travelled as a family group of eight with ages ranging from 6-65 and everyone had plenty of space. It was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The position is perfect! A quiet culture de sac and just 5 mins walk to the village square and 5-10 mins walk to the various beaches. Cannot recommend higher than to say we have already rebooked for next year!

John and Suzie the owners could not have been more helpful whenever we contacted them. Many thanks to both of you.

Beautiful villa in fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We don't normally return to the same property twice, but we loved this one so much we stayed for 2 weeks in July 13 and booked again for July 14 before returning home from the first holiday!

The villa is very well equipped, beautifully finished and very clean and well maintained. The beds are very comfortable and the property has tv, radios wifi etc. The villa has air conditioning in all rooms, however this was not always needed due to the perfect climate of hot and breezy in the day and lovely cool evenings. All the family loved the pool and pool area which was very peaceful and perfect for a BBQ and glass of wine or 2! It's in a lovely, safe, quiet location, but only 5 minutes walk to the charming village of Ferragudo. We bought fresh bread from the bakers and there is a well stocked friendly shop selling a wide variety of things. We ate at several restaurants in the square and around, our favourites being 'The Farragood' and 'O Barrill' (Chicken kebab son's favourite)! The restaurants were reasonably priced for both food and wine.

Good days out included dolphin safari from Ferragudo, buggy safari in Silves, Silves castle, Cape St Vincent lighthouse, Lagos, Carveiro cave trips and lots of beautiful beaches and walks.

John was very accommodating and helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We would thoroughly recommend this villa and hope to return again in the future.

Activity and Interests


Ferragudo is blessed and has some GREAT beaches in or very close to the village. I can supply more info upon contact.

Praia Grande - Just a 5 min stroll from the villa, has a long sandy expanse which never seems to get crowded! Great for families as its within the breakwater, beach dips gently into sea.

Pintadinho - A great beach outside of the breakwater, its great fun to use boogie boards here (we'll supply them). Caneiros - Not dissimilar to Pintadinho but larger. All Blue Flag.


Faro airport is 40 miles from Ferragudo. We can advise on competitively priced car hire companies. Airport transfers are available. Car hire is not essential but recommended. There is a car hire company in the village.


Carvoeiro and Portimao are the closest towns, each is a 10 minute drive from Ferragudo.

Further Details:

Ferragudo is considered to be probably the prettiest fishing village in the Algarve. The whitewashed houses are an amazing backdrop 'cascading' down to the picturesque harbour and onto the sea. These images adorn many postcards.

Ferragudo offers an amazing holiday and has something for everyone.

By day beach lovers are spoiled for choice. Whether you want to kick back and soak up some sun, splash about in the sea or take part in the vast array of water sports its all here on the doorstep. When its time for lunch you can choose from one of the many fantastic local beach bars or restaurants and be greeted with a friendly smile. Here you can relax with a cold drink and lunch on anything from a burger to fresh lobster!

Away from the beach are some great days out. Whilst Ferragudo is the ideal uncommercialised holiday venue it has a vast array of entertainment close to hand. The Algarve has 3 water parks and two of these are only a 10 min drive from the villa. There are numerous family attractions including Zoomarine, Crazy World, Parque Zoológic. Keen tennis players are catered for at the Carvoeiro Clube de Ténis where you're always guaranteed a friendly welcome, and should you be the next Jenson Button then you can be guaranteed of something of an adrenalin rush at the new Portimao race track.

The evenings in Ferragudo much like the day have something for all. Ferragudo is graced with some great eateries. The village square is a great place to start and is the focus of many a family dining experience. Here children can run around and make new friends whilst those that ran out of energy long ago can sit back and enjoy the pace of Mediterranean life with the dish of the choice and some great local wine. Should you be looking for something a little more romantic (not that the square isnt) then you need not leave Ferragudo. The harbor is home to some great restaurants where you can dine late and enjoy the view of the gently bobbing boats.
