Set in the small, traditional resort of Ferragudo, the Aguahotels Riverside is in a prime location to explore this fantastic region. More traditional than its neighbour, Portimão, Ferragudo is a beautiful village located across the river estuary of the River Arade.
Ferragudo has actually been tipped to be one of the Algarve’s new hot spots
and offers visitors everything they could desire for a wonderful time in Portugal.
Ferragudo town is embraced by palm-fringed gardens, which run alongside a narrow riverlet up to the main cobbled square, Praça Rainha Dona Leonor. This picturesque square is lined with plenty of café’s
where you can enjoy a delicious pastry and a refreshing beverage. If you fancy something more substantial, take a walk around the corner onto the quay and you will find a great selection of restaurants boasting lovely views across the Arade
and offering delicious, fresh, mouth-watering dishes.
This area of Portugal is well known for its natural beauty and distinct history
. The Algarve has long been a mecca for those looking for breathtaking vistas and sandy beaches
, while Faro and the surrounding areas hold a strong sense of history, with Portuguese and Moorish influences
clear to see.
