When you stand on the mezzanine level of Ferragudo Beach looking down, the word that comes to mind is simply ‘wow’. The impressive beams, the astounding interior design, the ceilings, the sumptuous furnishings and the chef’s dream of a kitchen are all sure to impress even the most discerning of guests. With its eight gorgeous bedroom suites sleeping sixteen guests, this former carriage house, offers large family or friends groups superb, luxury accommodation right next to the beach.

Ferragudo Beach used to belong the the next door Castle of Ferragudo. In 2016 the current owners started the transformation of the carriage house into a first class, luxury villa. The villa sits next to the beach at the foot of the castle and is only a five minute walk into the centre of Ferragudo. Ferragudo is a picturesque fishing village with a good selection of charming restaurants, bars and shops. It lies at the mouth of the Arade River, opposite the sensational beach of Praia da Rocha and the tourist hotspot of Portimao. The village is a hidden gem that has retained its traditional charm and boasts a beautiful palm-lined riverfront, the splendid Praia Grande and a gorgeous village square.

The restoration of Ferragudo Beach is highly impressive. It now boasts spectacular, seamless living space, eight bedrooms, all with ensuite shower rooms and beautiful outdoor space. The double height living space features a superbly comfortable living area with a gorgeous, oversized, mustard coloured corner sofa and trendy chairs, a stylish dining area, a small bar and the most amazing kitchen. The kitchen is sensational with a large induction hob, wine fridge, double hot air oven, two fridges, a dishwasher, coffee machine and everything else you could possible need. It boasts a central island and stools so that guests can keep the chefs in your group company. The dining table is oversized and seats all sixteen guests at once. Guests can relax on the lavish sofa and chairs enjoying the smart television or Sonos sound system looking up above at the incredible beams or out to the pretty garden. The colour palettes and diverse materials are stunning, beautiful blends of dazzling white, wood, brick and lavish velvets. Four of the bedroom suites are located on the ground floor, all heavenly nests with beautiful features, luxury linens, gorgeous garden views and immaculate ensuite shower rooms.

A trendy, contemporary staircase takes you up to the large mezzanine level which functions as another relaxation area and offers the most spectacular views of the living space. The remaining four bedroom suites are located on the upper level. All in dazzling white, they boast divine beamed ceilings, minimalist styling, lavish beds dressed in hotel quality linens and superb, contemporary shower rooms with the very best of fittings. They are all luxurious havens. This is one villa where you will not mind which bedroom you get.

Ferragudo Beach enjoys a beautiful garden brimming with fruit trees, box hedge, an alfresco dining and lounge terrace, various wooden decks, a glorious pool and parking for up to four cars. The decks are beautifully furnished and some offer shade. For barbecue masters, there is a large gas barbecue to complete the picture. You will not regret booking this delightful, stylish gem, especially once you realise the soft sands of the beach are just moments from the villa.

Ferragudo Beach enjoys a very special location, just 150 metres from the beach at Ferragudo. This delightful fishing village has retained its charm despite the Algarve’s tourist developments. It sits at the mouth of the Arade River estuary, across the water from Portimao and Praia da Rocha. Its wonderful riverfront promenade is sprinkled with palms dividing the old village from the new part. The main square, the charming Praca Rainha Dona Leonor, is lined with cafes, a perfect spot for breakfast and coffee. There are many fish restaurants that look out over the river. A warren of narrow cobbled streets rises up into the old village, lined with whitewashed cottages. The terrace in front of the village church offers wonderful views over the Arade River and Portimao, as well as the closest beach Praia da Angrinha. This beach is home to the medieval Castelo de Sao Joao de Arade which commands an elevated position on the headland at the southern end of the beach. The castle dates back to the 16th century, sitting opposite the Fortaleza de Santa Catarina in Praia da Rocha. By 1896 the fortress had fallen into disuse and was sold at auction. Ferragudo’s main town beach is Praia Grande which lies at the far side of the castle. The sheltered waters of the Arade beaches are ideal for watersports including kayaking and windsurfing.

On the opposite side of the Arade River, Portimao brings delicious seafood, shopping and waterfront promenades to the table, along with one of the Algarve’s best beaches, Praia da Rocha around the corner. Portimao is a sailor’s delight with elite competitions taking place. Long before tourism arrived in Portimao, the town made a living from fishing and canning. The fascinating Museu de Portimao is housed in the evocative old Feu Cannery and impresses guests with the history of the industry. The Megalithic Monuments of Alcarlar are very close to Portimao on the hilltop and spreading out over 10 hectares. There are burial monuments in the complex and a vast cairn with a shape resembling a beehive. Portimao has a wonderful market, the Mercado Municipal, which is a great place to stock up on supplies for the villa. There is also a special farmers market on Saturdays. The riverside esplanade is remarkable and perfect for a stroll beside the swaying palms. It is beautiful at night with the twinkly lights on the opposite bank. There are many opportunities for seafaring excursions from Portimao. You can take a voyage on a replica pirate ship, look out for dolphins, take on some water sports or simply enjoy the magnificent coastline.

Further inland, the red-hued town of Silves is nestled on the banks of the River Arade, dominated by one of the best-preserved castles in the Algarve. Silves was the capital of the ancient Arab kingdom of Algarve and retains many of its ancient nods to the past. It also boasts many charming outdoor cafes, some excellent restaurants, pretty fountains, a market hall and wonderful scented orange groves. Lagoa is another historic town worth visiting. It is a very pretty hill town which boasts gorgeous, ancient buildings, some stunning art galleries and some wonderful eateries.

Just a little further along the coast, Praia do Alvor features three impressive sea stacks known as the Tres Irmaos or Three Brothers, fine glistening white sand, ochre sandstone cliffs, grottoes and caves and extensive dunes. Praia do Vau is 2km west of the stunning Praia da Rocha and is quieter than its neighbour. The beach is surrounded by impressive red coloured cliffs which also make it more sheltered than some. On one side of Praia da Rocha is Praia do Alemao with several rock pools enjoyed by young children and on the other, Praia dos Careanos. From Praia do Vau you can enjoy a lovely beach walk all the way to Praia do Rocha, passing Praia dos Careanos. You will see some stunning rock formations along the way. From Praia do Alemao you can take the cliff walk which boasts incredible stunning views of the rock formations.

With a rich seafaring heritage and a dramatic coastline, the historic and characterful town of Lagos is a fantastic place to visit. It boasts a 17th century fort, intricate baroque churches such as Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Luz and the city’s ancient Moorish walls. The cultural centre of Lagos was originally built in 1710 as the Convent of Saint Joseph and is now home to exhibitions of paintings, photography and sculpture. Lagos has fantastic shopping and dining opportunities. If you want to stay out late then Lagos, home to many neon-lit bars, is the place to come.

THE REGION

Portimão is the largest city in the western Algarve and was traditionally a centre for shipbuilding, sardine fishing and fish processing. Today, most of that industry has been replaced by tourism, leisure and retail, leaving Portimão as a large and residential city. Perhaps the most attractive part of the town is the riverfront which runs from the marina to beyond the road bridge. There are several squares along this stretch, which become increasingly less touristy as you head away from the marina.

Of course, Portimão is probably best known for the fantastic beach of Praia da Rocha. Located about 3 km south of the town, this is one of the most impressive stretches of sand on the Algarve coast. Take a trip up the Rio Arade and explore the local area, or get out and active in the sunshine. Our pick of the best properties to stay in Portimão are perfect bases whether you're simply here for a beach holiday or you plan to explore further afield.

ABOUT THE ALGARVE

Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that. There’s actually a load of fascinating culture and history, superb cuisine and enthralling adventures to be had, though we’d be the first to admit that the beaches are pretty special too, with lots of sand, spectacle and wonderfully clean water.

But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!
