Close to our Carvoeiro apartments and villa lies the village Ferragudo. A lovely unspoiled authentic fisherman’s village. A small village with a small tidal harbor and many good fish restaurants along the boulevard. The village is located against the slope of a hill with the church as central point. From here you have a very nice view on the Arade river, the Atlantic and, of course, Portimão.
Every 4 weeks there is a bric-a-brac/car boot sales market in Ferragudo. Here you find all kinds of second hand articles at very reasonable prices (after negotiations!). Beaches like Praia Grande, Pintadinho, Praia dos Caneiros with the famous beach restaurant leave an impression for life! The village square has a very special atmosphere with lots of terraces, tobacconists and small shops.
A stroll through the small and narrow streets of Ferragudo makes you enjoy the beautiful Algarve even more.
The Monchique village
Or in full, Serra de Monchique, is just 20 minutes away from your apartment. Monchique is a must see village and aready the winding road to the village, with lots of handycraft shops and restaurants, is very attractive.
The market village is especially known because of the very high location and most impressive views. The highest part of the mountain is the township Foia where there are even pick-nick tables and places where you can drink the natural water from the wells of which people say that the water has a healing effect against many illnesses. Caldas de Monchique is where the old Spa is re-vitalised; e great place to relax. Even at a night with clear sky the Monchique mountain range is impressive; you never believed that there were so many stars visible with the naked eye.
Here you can see pictures taken in the area of Vila Maria and our holiday apartments for rent in the Praia do Carvoeiro-Portimao area. There are several nice and sandy beaches nearby but, when you want to wonder around and experience the beauty of the Algarve, Portugal the possibilities are endless. Questioins? Contact the owner.
