Vila Castelo is a great resort to stay for a long vacation. We spent one month in one of their townhouses. It has all the convenience we have in our house in Canada. This is a well maintained, very clean and comfortable resort. The management and staff members are very friendly, competent and extremely helpful. We definitely recommend this resort... More

Vila Castelo proved to be a beautiful place. Alice and Sergio are just great...they take pride in the place, and it shows. Everything is clean and all the staff are very accommodating (especially Lea at the pool bar). Our apartment was very comfortable...2 bedrooms and a nice terrace. Close proximity to the pool area. Ferragudo is a beautiful little town... More
