“Great for families”

We stayed for a few days in August. We got a good discount on the usual price for that time of year. As we were two adults and two children, there was plenty of room. We didn't do any actual cooking, but the facilities were there. The highlight was the pool which kept the kids occupied. Very close to the village centre, but on a steep hill, so quite hard with a pram. You can either get to the village by going down some steps or going via the main road.

“An Ideal Base, With All The COmforts Of Home, Superb......!”

When I booked I opted for the 4 bedroom 3 bathroom Castaway Apartment which would suit a family of up to 8. Our party was 4 adults + 1 child and 1 infant and the apartment more than matched our needs, well equipped throughout, it was a delight to stay here.
The plunge pool was put to good use by my granddaughter every day, even when returning from the excellent safe sandy beach, she would opt to have a "plunge" and would be most reluctant to get out...!
The situation of the property, for our purposes was ideal, although for the elderly or infirm it might prove to be a difficult walk down to the town square, very hilly via narrow streets and steep steps, but very picturesque with glimpses of the River Arade and Portimaio (spelling?) through gaps in the quaint local houses.
The owners, Kevin and Sheila Howe made the whole process of booking the accommodation easy and kept me fully informed and updated, any questions or concerns were readily and speedily answered via email and advice such as transportation from the airport etc was particularly useful.
For any medium to large family, wishing to enjoy a break together in a beautiful, as yet unspoilt part of the Algarve, with safe sandy beaches, a lively town square with plenty of bars and restaurants, then The Castaway Apartments in Ferragudo is the place to go.
