The Algarve region
The Algarve, the name comes from the Arabian «Al Gharb» which means -the West- is a 150 km long and 50 km bride stripe of coastline. Its Arabian influences from the past can still be seen in architectures and Village-names for instance "Albufeira", "Alvor" or "Almancil", or in the traditional blue and white painting of the houses which you can find as well in Tunisia.
Our Villa is situated in the area of Praia do Carvoeiro and Ferragudo.
Some 30 years ago Carvoeiro was a little more than a small one-street fishing village, where everyone knew each other and in many cases also were related to each other.
In the meantime with the influx of tourists and foreign residents as well, it has grown into a very cosmopolitan location with a wide selection of bars, restaurants shops and boutiques.Anyway Carvoeiro and Ferragudo have maintained their charm and character and its original architecture is still visible in the smaller , cobbled side streets closed to the beach front. Carvoeiro and its surroundings are the ideal location for a holiday with the whole family
In our Villa you have the opportunity to relax and do very little, apart from sitting by the beach, sunbathing and dining in the evenings.
During the summer months there are live-music and entertainment shows every week on the central beach area in Carvoeiro and Ferragudo. If you want to explore the surroundings , it is an easy drive to Lagoa , or the historical town of Silves with its castle or to Monchique and Caldas de Monchique. There are interesting rock formations to be seen at the Algarvian coastline, one of the most interesting is found directly in Carvoeiro and is called "Algar Seco."
Praia do Carvoeiro is a beautifil village with its own beach that kept its fishermens village character over the years eventhough many visitors spend their holiday here in summer.
There are restaurants and shops for every taste and during the summer months there is live music on the square.
It is a perfect place for a family holiday.
From Carvoeiro you have outstanding views of the algarvian coastline and the little fisherboats can take you for a trip to see the beaches and rock formations .
Ferragudo is a small fishing village.
Here you can still watch the fishermen repairing their nets and from the church you can enjoy beautiful views of the marina and Portimão.
You can stroll through the narrow streets or sit in a Café and listen to the live music while having a Café com Leite or a glass of wine .
Here you can find some excellent fishrestaurants .
Ferragudo has a large beach which is perfect for long walks.
