Lovely villa close to beach and town centre, views fantastic. Whole family enjoyed pool and outdoor areas with plenty of room in the villa. Stephen the owner was very helpful with information about the area etc. Would definitely stay there again.
Vila Castelo, Ferragudo
The villa first - this is a really spacious villa set over three floors. The top most floor has most of the general living space, kitchen, living and dining rooms, separate wc and master bedroom with en suite. Terrace is accessed from this floor with magnificent views over the castle, Portimão and water. Plenty of seating on this level with comfy sofa and chairs, and a dining table. The middle level housed a further two bedrooms and separate bathroom, one twin and one double, and these both had direct access to the pool! Very handy. Storage in all the rooms was plentiful. The ground floor was private, but at this level, you could also access the garden which was lovely. Garden could also be accessed from the pool terrace. Back on the main level, there was also further outdoor dining at the front of the villa with built in bbq. The villa was very comfortable, towels and linen provided, and changed during our stay. Basics were also in the villa, things like tea, coffee, water, salt, pepper etc - I’ve stayed in other villas where there is nothing, even though I’m sure previous holiday makers would have left products.
Location - Ferragudo is beautiful, and compact. We didn’t hire a car, and there is no need unless you want to travel. The villa is set overlooking the sea, and really couldn’t be closer to the beach. A very short walk also brings you into the centre of ferragudo where there’s plenty of restaurants, and a number of local shops. There’s even a water taxi that will take you across the bay to Portimão. The nearest supermarket is Lidl, which is an easy 25 minute walk, and I used UBER to get back with the shopping.
We found communication with the owner excellent, and any questions we had were answered comprehensively. He also was happy to accommodate our request for an early arrival. Paula the housekeeper provided us with such a warm welcome, and was on hand during our stay if we needed her.
We loved our stay, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ferragudo, and this villa. Suited us perfectly, and would love to return. Thanks
Another great stay
This was our 2nd visit & we don’t normally return to the same place twice so I think that’s sums up what we think about this Villa & Ferragudo.
There were 6 adults & 2 children (4 & 1) in our party & the Villa was more than adequate for our party. It has all you need with all the comforts of a lovely well kept home. It was spotlessly clean & with Paula, your contact in Ferragudo on hand to help you have nothing to worry about. Stephen the owner was also very helpful & nothing was too much trouble.
What stands out the most is the location of the Villa, very close to the most wonderful beach & also close to the village with its lovely square & restaurants.
We didn’t hire a car & we didn’t need it. A stop off initially at Lidl & then we made use of the local small supermarkets.
Will we return? If we decide to go back to the Algarve you bet.
Outstanding Villa - well equipt -perfect location
Just returned from 22 Vila Castel after 10 days in this wonderful villa.
We were a family of nine ( grandparents/ children/grandchildren) and the accommodation was superb, set over 3 floors allowing plenty of privacy and space.
The villa is well equipt, spotlessly clean with all mod cons.
The location is perfect for the beaches and the quaint fishing port of Ferragudo with it's many restaurants, bars and shops.
We stocked up with goods & wines from a nearby Lidl store using the local taxi service. There is a local bakers in the port where we bought freshly baked baguettes & croissants every morning.
We originally booked in July 2017 and the owner Stephen Hamilton has been extremely helpful with all our queries.
Paula & Pedro who look after the villa were marvellous.
The children loved the large pool and we all spent many hours around the pool and terraces, which affords plenty of sun & shaded areas.
There is a small reception office and ATM machine very close by, where we were able to book an excursion to the nearby waterpark for a day, and were picked up and dropped off just by the villa.
All in all perfect family holiday villa.

The villa was beautiful and well appointed.
The villa and property were beautifully maintained. We were a large party and everyone had their own space. The grounds are lovely and we picked fresh lemons and oranges from the gardens. Located across the street from the beach and with a view of the castle, the setting was perfect. Our host Stephen was helpful and responsive. Property manager Paula was friendly and helpful throughout our stay and even came to see us off at 3am! I would happy recommend Villa Castello to anyone looking for a lovely vacation property. Ferragudo is a quaint and pretty fishing village, located in the beautiful Algarve region of Portugal. It had something to offer for everyone, even the teenagers! We look forward to our next visit!!
Fantastic Family Holiday in this Amazing Villa
This is a fantastic 5 bed-roomed villa with great views, including over the beach, harbour and castle, The villa is spacious with lots of sitting/dining areas on terraces, in the large garden and beside the pool . The whole villa is light and airy with large windows and has air conditioning throughout. The bedrooms are set over three floors offering privacy where required with the main bedroom being en-suite and the other 4 bedrooms sharing two bathrooms (one on each floor) there is also an independent toilet on the main floor., The villa is very well equipped and even has a drinks fridge in the utility room (at least that is what we used it for and the main fridge and freezer was in the kitchen).
The TV had a wide range of channels and we were able to watch the start of the Word Cup on BBC/ITV and the England Rugby Test in South Africa on Sky Sports.
In terms of location, it could not be better placed for Ferragudo town or the beautiful beaches, all within five/ten minute steady walk. The beaches are very family orientated with safe bathing. exceptionally clean and well serviced with bars and restaurants. The town of Ferragudo is also very quaint but with a healthy choice of restaurants set along the harbour and around the town square. There is a fish market, a great bakers and butchers and a few small supermarkets in the town with a Lidle a five minute drive away. We loved watching the fishing boats unloading their catch on a morning
We will certainly return to this fabulous villa again in the future, most likely next year.
P.S - we were a party of 8 people
Ferragudo is charming and for a relatively small village it is blessed with an abundance of good quality restaurants (at least one for each night of a two week stay!) serving fresh fish and all manner of typically Portuguese cuisine. The children will find plenty of their favourites on the menus.
The village square comes alive during the summer months when it is the centre for an eclectic mix of entertainment including Portuguese folklore, English & Portuguese popular music groups dancing and children’s entertainers.
The bars surrounding the square are popular, relaxing and family orientated where you can enjoy a bottle of Portuguese wine, a cold beer, a coffee or an ice cream. The popularity of the area is evidenced by the growing number of ocean going cruise liners that are calling into Portimao.
By arrangement, with the Vila Castelo management, guests may also use the facilities of the complex which includes reception, swimming pool and pool bar. Also by arrangement Vila Castelo Parque may allow access to their fitness suite.
Other Activities: Aqua fun parks, soft ball play area, zoos, castles, boat trips, English speaking cinemas
