About the villa

From its painted roof rafters to its cool tiled floors, there’s a real ‘beach house’ feel to this airy little villa. Furnished throughout with enchanting simplicity, in a crisp colour palette of blue and white, the single storey villa has two or three steps linking rooms in its split-level layout. Equally ideal for family or friends, the cottage has one double bedroom and two singles and a bunk bedroom; a country-style kitchen with modern appliances; and a lovely living room forming the heart of the house, with a dining area, comfy sofas and satellite TV. A door opens out from here to the sunny and spacious terrace, with enticing views of the Atlantic Ocean and Arade River mouth, deck chairs set sleepily under tree shade, and a big dining table for leisurely lunches or starlight suppers. 

And just below this broad veranda, a brick-paved sun terrace, partly in palm shade, surrounds a cool infinity pool. A sloped, stepped and gated pathway leads from Sandy Bay Cottage to the huge soft sand beach, just 300m below. Shops and restaurants in Ferragudo are a walkable 1.2km away, and tennis, golf and water sports are all within 4km.

About the area

Ferragudo and Surrounds

Average weather

Set on the banks of the River Arade, Ferragudo’s white buildings tumble down the hillside to the waterfront and there are several excellent beaches nearby. The stretch of coast from Carvoeiro to Lagos is dotted with busy family resorts, but this doesn’t mean these pretty fishing villages and coastal towns have lost their charm. History abounds inSilves and Lagos’ Old Town, while Albuferia offers all the usual delights of a big resort town.
