It is in a rural position in the hills along an 8 minute drive of unpaved road known for it’s beautiful walking trails through the Serra: oak orchards, yet it is only 40 mins from Faro and 30 mins from Tavira and many beautiful sandy beaches. The local towns of Sao Bras de Alportel and Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo are 10-20 mins away.
The villa is beautifully maintained, simple yet stylish . The main house with its high ceiling open plan sitting room, dinning room and kitchen has one bedroom with a super king bed and bathroom with bath and shower. A few metres away in a separate guest annex there are two more bedrooms, one double and one with two single beds plus a separate bathroom.
There tends to be a welcoming breeze in the hills and it’s easy to end up just relaxing by the pool for days on end enjoying the views and walking in the local area however there are plenty of sandy beaches, bustling towns and activities to explore within an easy drive . There is very good WiFi. Due its location a car is essential
This property is only suitable for adults or families with older children and good swimmers due to the large deep pool and pond and the bedrooms are in a close but separate building. The pond is full of wildlife including fish, frogs and terrapins.

A Very Special Place

By Andrea and Anthony Oldfield on 20-Jan-2023

We have spent six wonderful weeks at Casa Ferradura, a beautifully designed house in a truly delightful setting. Surrounded by hills and away from the hustle and bustle of the resorts, this is the real Algarve. Though a little remote, this does not prove to be a problem since the pretty village of Santa Caterina has some useful shops and it is not too far from Sao Bras de Alportel - a very traditional and friendly town with all that you could need including supermarkets, a variety of excellent restaurants and a bustling Saturday market which is well worth a visit. Beaches are not far away - Praia do Barril being especially beautiful - and the charming town of Tavira is a must. Above all, we have enjoyed the absolute peace and quiet of the valley in which Casa Ferradura is set. By day just the sound of birds and bees and the wonderful views of the surrounding hills. By night the star-filled skies. A unique and very special place.

Beautiful Rural retreat

By Tracey Sanders on 31-Oct-2022

We had an amazing short break at Casa Ferradura in early November. The villa is tastefully appointed, creating a authentic rustic atmosphere. Set in olive groves and abundant fruit trees, the villa has an incredible view of the surrounding hills and, the pool with it’s pond surround adds to the sense of being immersed in nature. It’s the perfect place to unwind and feel completely away from it all. There are lovely local villages to explore within a short drive away. A car is essential. We found some great local restaurants and also loved exploring the beaches near Olhao and wandering the lanes of Tavira. I would highly recommend this villa to those that love the countryside and want to experience the best of Portugal.

A little piece of paradise

By Katrine Orr on 20-Oct-2022

What a stunning villa with pool in a peaceful location. The house is gorgeous and beautifully furnished with all the equipment needed for eating at the villa and enjoying the surrounding countryside. The house is nestled in a garden full of olive trees and fruit trees, it really does feel like a piece of paradise. We also appreciated having a pool to cool down in and loved the feature of a pond wrapped around it. Would highly recommend this villa. We'll be back!
