A charming house right on the waterfront in the heart of the historical center of Ferragudo. Built late 1800 and recently carefully renovated to a modern standard while preserving its unique character.

A magnificent sunny private roof terrace for BBQ, or just relaxing with a large hot tub and a breathtaking panoramic view. The perfect getaway for an authentic holiday away from mass tourism. Minutes from beaches, golf courses, the nightlife in Praia de Rocha, museums, and shopping malls in PortimãoRight at your doorstep, you will see the local fishermen unloading their daily catches.

100 meters to the left of the house you have the local fish and fruit market where you can buy local produce and prepare a delicious lunch in the fully equipped modern kitchen or on the rooftop BBQ.

Dine at the private roof-top terrace overlooking the magnificent sunset or at one of the cozy neighborhood restaurants.

If you turn right and follow the quayside 200 meters you will find Prai Angria, a beach used mostly by the local Portuguese. This is the perfect place for sunbathing or a swim.

If you continue to the fort, stop and try to find its hidden cave. When you continue you will come to the more touristic Pria Grande with all kinds of service including four excellent beach restaurants and rental of water equipment.

Both beaches are protected by wave breakers protecting the beaches from the Atlantic waves in that might make swimming risky at many other beaches in Algarve. After the wave breakers, there is a great area for surfing.

Many of our guests just loved the breathtaking beautiful trail that starts at Pria Grande. You follow a marked path and on the cliff edges with absolutely breathtaking views. You pass the beaches of Praia do Molhe, Pintadinho, and Caneiros where you can stop or have a drink. The Seven Hanging Valleys (Sete Vales Susensos) has been named the best Hiking Destination in Europe.

Returning home, you can take a shower on the rooftop shower before watching the magnificent sunset from the hot tub.

After a drink in the launch set on the rooftop, you can go to Tres Dukes and take a bear with the local fishermen. Next door you find Amigo, a very popular place for visitors. Continue down the narrow-cobbled alley lined with traditional Portuguese houses takes you to a range of excellent local restaurants. After 200 meters you pass the local butcher before entering the town square.

Village life still revolves around the quayside square with its narrow cobbled streets and steps, meandering up from the old quay to the summit of the small village with its 2000 inhabitants.

If you are into busier nightlife you can take the water taxi to Pria de Rocha. Within walking distance, you have a casino and many beach bars and nightclubs for every taste.

When you enter the house from the fishing docks there is a traditional hallway, a master bedroom, and a modern bathroom. You also find a guest room with bunk beds on the first floor.

A traditional narrow and steep stairway leads up to the second floor where there is a lounge with a dining area, sofa, TV, and a reading chair. You also find a second guest bedroom, a modern bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen with granite work surfaces, a hood with external ventilation, a high-quality microwave, freezer, fridge stove, and an oven.

There is a kitchen door leading to the narrow-cobbled streets where you might find the neighbor fisherman sitting repairing his fishing nets.

The 50 cm thick walls with charming traditional wood window shutters add to the characteristics of the house and will keep the heat out during the summer. The floors are covered with terracotta floor tiles.

Stairs from the hallway lead to the roof tower and the 43 m2 large fantastic private roof terrace. It has sun throughout the day with an astonishing and relaxing 180 degrees view of the blue water, the beach, and the town. There is a BBQ area, an outdoor shower, a dining set, a large sofa there to relax and enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset as well a private hot tub for up to 6 people.

Heath, safety, and wellbeing of our guests are of utmost importance to us. For this reason, we use a thorough process of cleaning after each check-out.

We fell in love with our charming one of its kind house in the historical part of Ferragudo on a trip to Algarve 2016. 2019 we decided to retire early to be able to live in this beautiful part of the world.

For us it is the perfect spot to relax, enjoy nature and go for daily walks with breathtaking beaches, golden rocky cliffs smelling the freshness of the Atlantic. 320 days of sun per year combined with excellent seafood and high-quality local produce and most of all the super friendly Portuguese people makes this the perfect place to live.

We love to travel and as experienced travelers, we understand the challenges of finding great places to stay and we always try our best to make your stay perfect and unforgettable.

We have a fantastic maid Rosa that has been working with us since 2016. She speaks very good English and keeps the house spotlessly clean and can provide you with onsite support.

We are not on-site when we rent out, so we will not have the pleasure of meeting you personally, but we are certainly reachable 24/7 by email, phone or WhatsUp.

Since we live in Ferragudo we are happy to provide guidance for local restaurants and hidden spots and answer all your questions before and during your stay. We are looking forward to welcoming you to Casa do Pescador (The Fisherman’s House).
