The Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June for a week & fell in love with it! The house is situated at the top of the complex so has unspoilt views out to sea & across the estuary to Praia Da Rocha & Portimao.

You enter the property up some steps from a secure gated courtyard to the middle level, where the kitchen, dinning room & small lounge with a tv are situated & a small balcony. The kitchen is full equipped & has every thing you need, it was home from home, there is even a small cool box & ice block for you to take to the beach ( ideal to keep your beer cool! ) from the middle floor there are stairs to the basement where the bedrooms are, the patio doors in the bedrooms have shutters on so the bedrooms are kept nice & cool when the temperature is hot outside, but there is also air-conditioning through out the house if you need it. The main bedroom is ensuite, but there is also a family bathroom & second bedroom on this level.The beds are very comfortable. There is also a hairdryer should you need it.

If you go up the stairs from the middle floor, there is a large lounge with TV & a large balcony with unspoilt views to take your breath away! A must to sit & enjoy a few drinks to watch the sun go down.

Ferragudo is an unspoilt fishing village, the house is only 10 minutes from lovely sandy beaches & a 10 minute walk into the village where there are numerous places to eat around the village square & streets, the locals were very friendly & spoke english.

If you want to visit the more commercial place around Ferragudo you can take the water taxi to Portimao or Praia Da Rocha.

There is a pool at the complex with a bar & snacks are available & here you can get free WIFI, a nice place to lay back & enjoy the sun. Alice & Sergio who run it are very friendly & always make you welcome.

This was our 1st visit, we fell in love with the place & can not wait to return next year.

Lovely house, 100 % relaxation

  • 4 of 5

In 2013 we went for the first time to Portugal. 5 weeks we booked with our travelagency for Ferragudo, a quiet fishersplace. Just what we want quietnes.

We lost our hearts totally. In 2014 we went again for 7 weeks, same place same travelagency.

The feelings were the same what a lovely place, the shops, the people, even unfortunately, the Hospital.

At that stay we inquired for appartments or houses and came in contact with the conciërge Algarve, George Wilkinson.

We saw several houses, but this house was our favourit

In 2015 we stayed for 2 1/2 month in " our" Ferragudo in this fine house with a fabulous view on the top floor of the Atlantic Ocean and the Arade river. The house was clean, comforting and if something was not as it should be, one call to Mr George and it was quickly solved.

We hope to return next year and we hope there will be WiFi in the house. That was the only min point.

Superb location, perfect for beach and village.

  • 4 of 5

In terms of location, this would be hard to beat. It really is only five minutes stroll to the village centre, less than 10 to either of two beaches. The views from the top floor balcony is magnificent. It takes in the port area, Portimao marina, the castle and out to sea.

As described,mthe property is set on three levels. From the rear alley you enter a courtyard through a metal gate. This is the bottom level, where the bedrooms are. You then go up external steps to the entry door on level two. This level has the kitchen and a living area there is also a small balcony. Internal stairs take you down to the bedroom and bathroom level. good sized rooms, one family,bathroom with shower and toilet. One double room with ensuite. Each bedroom has sliding doors that open too small courtyards. TIP- Do not carry your luggage up the outside steps to the front door. Because you will have carried them up steps only to have to take them down

the internal stairs. Wait and open the bedroom sliding doors and take them straight in that way to the bedroom level. Much easier!

Up the internal stairs to the third level there is another living area and a larger balcony with the best views.

For me one big disappointment was that contrary to the description THERE IS NO WIFI!

The nearby pool area can give you wifi access, but ther is nine in the apartment at all. There is a good 3G signal though.

The property was clean and well maintained. George the agent was helpful and quick to resolve any issues.

The upside down arrangement of the apartment will not suit everyone. The stairs are narrow and spiral. It is certainly not suited for families with small children or the infirm. Even for us,the stairs did get a bit wearing by the end of the week.

The elevated position provided a good breeze that meant even in June we did not feel the need to use the aircon.

The local shops and restaurants are good, most of the staff speak very good English.

The local beaches are very good. The golf courses of Vale da Pinta and Gramacho are only a ten minute drive away.

There are also some great coastal walks.
