Casa da Praia

Casa da Praia

Set on a vantage point and secluded by pines just above Praia Grande (beach) in Ferragudo, this charming holiday villa offers tranquil views across the Arado river mouth to the Atlantic ocean, towards the setting sun and Sagres on the Western Algarve.
Casa da Praia has 3 bedrooms and a lovely pool area, outdoor dining and barbeque terrace, from where you can enjoy yachts and fishing boats peacefully passing by, and the beach is just a short walk away.
Formally a beekeepers cottage within the larger estate of Casa da Infanta, it has been completely refurbished into a modern and contemporary one-level beach villa vacation home, that can be rented independently or together with the main house. Compact but well equipped with beach-chic style interiors, it has a closed-in fireplace for cooler nights as well as air-conditioning for hotter days. It’s an ideal holiday rental for family beach holidays or for those wanting to play in one of the area’s many golf courses. You can also walk along the beach to the charming waterside village of Ferragudo a gem of the Algarve coast, hosting a number of quayside fresh fish and seafood restaurants.


Please note – There are some unprotected drops from various terraces and around the swimming pool – young children need to be supervised!
