Ferragudo, Algarve

Ferragudo is smaller and more traditional than it’s neighbour, Portimão which is located across the river estuary of the Rio Arade. The main cobbled square, Praça Rainha Dona Leonor has lots of café’s serving delicious pastries and a variety of different types of coffee. Just around the corner is the quayside with lots of fish restaurants of varying prices serving the freshest of fish, barbequed in front of your eyes. At one end of the village is the impressive Fort of São João de Arade. It began life in the 15th century as a lookout tower and then was extended in 17th/18th century as part of the fortifications protecting the mouth of the river. (On the opposite bank above Portimão marina is the fort of Santa Catarina.). At the beginning of the 20th century it was converted into a private home by the poet, Coelho Carvalho which is how it came by it's present, rather romantic, appearance.

Portimão is primarily a fis...



Mrs N 

"We really had a great holiday. The villa was lovely and the position was impressive. Truus and her husband and the cleaner were lovely as well. We are very grateful to you and the Villa Agency for providing us with an enjoyable, stress free holiday. We will certainly look at your villas first when we are next booking a villa holiday.

Thank you again for all you have done for us."

Mr B "Can I  say how delighted we were with our holiday. The Villa was superb- high quality, tranquil and delightful views. Thank you. 

Mr S " I would like to express my thanks for all your help in organising our holiday. We had a brilliant time. In fact it was so good we would like to return next year as well"

Mr E "We really enjoyed our holiday, great location. Maria, the owner, was very kind and attentive. Everything went perfectly. We hope to return one day."

Mr L "Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic 2 weeks in Ferragudo.  The town and the area is lovely but the villa was absolutely brilliant....definitely the best we've stayed in over the last few years. The view over the coast from the garden is truly spectacular.  We enjoyed it so much that we'd be keen to book in for next summer"

Mr P "I just wanted to feedback that we had an excellent stay in Portugal last week, everything was great!"

Mr C "Just wanted to say "Hi!" and I hope you are well. We're just enjoying our 2nd full day here .... bloody awesome! Not sure how we'll top this next time.We are told the neighbour is José Mourinho, my boys are planning on inviting him over for a beer but I'm not convinced he's here or would come if he was!Thanks for having such cool places on your books, where next for us I wonder?"

Mrs F "I would just like to say how much we enjoyed our recent holiday to Ferragudo and Vivenda Maria. The villa is designed to make the most of the panoramic views which surround this well-equipped property. We have been hiring villas as a family for many years but this is the first time that we have received such detailed directions on how to get to the property. All of the information we received pre-departure was of the same high standard. Most importantly, your Villa Manager, Truus and her husband Rob, were on hand to give us excellent local knowledge and advice, and they were both very helpful and friendly. Our Maid Annabelle was very efficient and spoke English very well - the whole property was well maintained and of an excellent standard. We had not used The Villa Agency before but we would definitely use you again. Thanks for making our holiday very special".

Mrs D" Thank you.  We will definitely book with you again. You have been so very nice to deal with. We felt a level of trust and safety with you. So a big fat thanks for that. "

Mr B "The villa exceeded our expectations. As we walked through the door we thought 'wow'. The view was superb. The villa and outside areas were wonderful (well maintained etc) as was the pool.  Everything we needed for a good holiday was available.  Sunny weather everyday meant we could make full use of all the facilities.

Ferragudo is a good base with good restaurants and beaches.

The manager was very helpful and pro-active

We would love to return"
