About Jean-Paul Duurland

We are Jean-Paul Duurland and Sas Hovinga. Since we spent our first holiday in Portugal in 2008, we wanted to buy a house here. It took us five years to find this great house.

The name Vila Vida was born! In atmospheric Ferragudo, close to the sea, restaurants and in the neighbourhood of shops, golf resorts and tennis clubs, we felt us at home from the start! We do hope you feel the same!

Sunny regards,

Paul en Sas

Ferragudo is blessed and has some great beaches in or very close to the village. We 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. Caneiros - Not dissimilar to Pintadinho but larger. All Blue Flag.
