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

Great place to unwind

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 9 nights and have been to the same accommodation twice now. Just right for a couple with a good sized bedroom, plenty of wardrobe space. Clean shower room, pleasant kitchen with loads of crockery, glasses etc. Never used the lounge as weather was brilliant. Outside area was good with plenty of places to sit and sunbathe. Pool is fairly small but enough to cool off In. Own private entrance. Only slight problem was the lighting outside at night. It was too dark and security light was on for moments and then off again. We brought standard lamp to patio doors and solved the problem. It was a lovely break in a clean and comfortable apartment and will go back again. Easy to walk into Ferragudo for meals and drinks.

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.


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.
