Across the river Arade, you can look through the living room and bedroom balcony to the village of Ferragudo Algarve.A wonderfully rustic village that has retained much of its originality. A fishing village with many small fishing boats in the tidal harbor. And with a multitude of fish restaurants along the boulevard. The village is built against the hill. From the church square you have a magnificent view of the river Arade, the Atlantic Ocean. And of course , Portimão and your flat on the top floor of self-catering holiday apartment Vila Arade in Portimao.
Every 4 weeks a very nice flea market -gypsy market takes place in the center of Ferragudo Algarve. Here you will find the most diverse second-hand items that can become your property at very low prices (after negotiation). A Bica (cup of coffee) on one of the terraces on the pleasant village square with a pastela de nata is delicious. A walk through the narrow streets of old Ferragudo will charm you. The beaches Praia Grande, Pintadinho and Praia dos Caneiros with the famous restaurant Caneiros will delight you. Do book a seat well in advance as this restaurant in Ferragudo Algarve is very popular. B ut, take a taxi boat from the Portimao boulevard to cross the Arade river. Quite an experience.
