We loved Vila Castelo so much that we almost feel that we don't want to tell anybody about it ;-) We selected the property as a result of a Google search following a 'misunderstanding' with a travel agent; a misunderstanding that we are now so grateful for. A couple of emails and a phone call to Joana and we were... More

If you need or want anything you just call or go to Sergio or Alice and it's done! Also the staff is very friendly and nice. The best place to be... More

should have been longer, a week was not enough. Next time, knowing what we know now, we may stay for a month or so. Great variety of eateries providing quality cooking. All the facilities you might require are within walking distance.

This quiet little fishing village is an oasis of quiet charm in the Algarve. At the mouth of the Rio Arade, it boasts both a sea beach and the river beach. Temperatures in March are lovely for enjoying walks and colourful wild flowers, fresh fish barbecues and bird-watching.

Vila Castelo is situated on the edge of the village of Ferragudo on the opposite side of the river from Portimao. The village is compact and everything is within walking distance. A car can be useful but is not essential. Portimao is easily reached by bus, taxi or water taxi. The latter is every 10/15 minutes and takes only 5... More

We could only manage 5 nights here after staying elsewhere on the Algarve but we were thrilled to have made the choice. I've been visiting the Algarve since 1985 and have always loved Ferragudo so we chose to stay here to sample life in the village itself.
