There are some villas in Ferragudo on beautiful locations, but this location is absolutely unique. The iconic setting is similar to that of the famous Castelo de São João do Arade. On top of the cliffs between the Pintadinho and the Molhe beach with unobstructed ocean views, the river and the castle, across the river and Portimão, along the coast to Lagos and Sagres. This remarkable villa has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Recently, in the garden, a lovely pool has been created to cool off during the hot summer period. And you walk down the stairs to the beach and you can take your morning swim in the sea!
It is a house with a story. In 1962 it was built by a wealthy Portuguese man as a wedding gift for his bride. They spent their honeymoon here. Twenty years ago the house was enlarged and decorated with tiles with frivolous images on the façade of the house by a talented young artist from Ferragudo. A shining sun, water with sea shells and fish, flying seagulls and a seductive mermaid complement the special appearance of this villa in this dream location.
The villa is in a modest urbanisation between two beaches and is the villa situated nearest to the sea. A well-designed gate leads onto the spacious porch that is inlaid with Portuguese cobblestones in a wave pattern. There is ample space for parking.
The villa consists of two floors which are visible from the street. From the sea side, you only see the upper floor. Through the front door, under the mermaid, you enter the entrance hall. Immediately to the right half a spiral staircase leads to the entrance hall of the upper floor.
Here you enter the spacious living room with floor to ceiling double glazed sliding doors, offering spectacular views day and night. The blue river and ocean capture your senses during the day, in the evenings you become quiet with the magical lights of Lagos and Alvor in the distance.
From the living room you walk onto the large outdoor terrace where the waves styled sofa is a work of art. The living room has a closed fireplace. The dining room is open connected to the living room. Here is a very effective gas fireplace. From the adjacent modern well-equipped kitchen you also enjoy a wide view to the river and ocean. From the master bedroom on this floor you see the sun rise over the ocean in the morning and access directly a private, largely separate terrace. The beautiful en suite bathroom is decorated with Italian marble tiles.
On the ground floor are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, both with electric heating. Also here is a large space that is now in use as storage, but for example, can be arranged as TV or playroom.
The plot in this unique location is almost 1100m2. In the garden the round pool is in a sheltered place. Around the villa there are several sitting areas, so you will always find a place to linger. Under the terrace of the master bedroom is a space for equipment and storage. It is a home that captivates and captures your heart!
In Ferragudo, which is still a very traditional fishermen's place, you find a colorful mix of a little over 2000 Portuguese and 'estrangeiros' from all over the world. The village, surrounding its lively central square with charming little streets and a variety of restaurants, cafes, shops and a church, offers all necessary amenities. In winter Ferragudo remains cozy because most places stay open and in summertime it never becomes too crowded. This makes Ferragudo a very attractive place to reside.
With several beautiful beaches, both at the river and ocean side, you can vary according to your mood or type of weather. On the largest beach, Praia Grande, there are a few restaurants and beach clubs, some of which stay open all year round. In the near vicinity you find the most beautiful golf courses and attractive tennis courts.
