Pam - July 2015

Our 2nd visit here, decided to come earlier in the year thinking it would be less hot ? we were wrong! We started all our walks at 7am which worked well with exploring in the car later and enjoying the pool in the afternoon. All in all another great mini break. Many thanks to Jenny, Tom and Peter for a warm welcome. We look forward to our next visit.

Rob and Veronica - June 2015

Nikki and Mark - May 2015

Well as we said in September we'd be back. Always a pleasure and always made to feel welcome. It's like home from home. We do travel around, the beaches are fabulous and so quiet at this time of the year. We've enjoyed seeing various birds and the flowers are beautiful ? so many poppies. Sorry to depart but we will be back soon.

David and Pat - April 2015

Wonderful stay ? 2nd year on the trot we've stayed at Casa Ferrobo. Great hospitality. We will be back asap.

Nigel and Lesley - April 2015

We love coming here for the peace and quiet, the gardens, walks and scenery and flowers. Your hospitality is very special - we will be back soon I am sure.

Barbara and Mike - March 2015

Back at the Casa for about the 8th time now. Best ever I think, beautiful weather after the October rains, lovely and green with flowers still out. Usual walks and bee-eaters still here. Usual fantastic hospitality and lovely to see the animals again. Thanks again.

Sue and Michael - November 2015

Back for a second visit this year. First time in the autumn/winter and Portugal really is lovely at this time of the year. Had some fantastic weather for the first few days and even braved the pool. Only managed one walk this time but hired mountain bikes and rode around the trails which was brilliant fun. Avalanche Cycles in Sao Bras were great and even offer pick up and drop off at Casa Ferrobo.

James, Hannah and Adam - November 2015

Another fantastic time here at Casa Ferrobo. The perfect place to relax and unwind. Jenny and Tom as always have been amazing, looking forward to our next visit. Cannot thank you enough for your hospitality and kindness.

Our first visit here, highly recommended by friends. Even better than we had hoped and the setting is so beautiful. We really enjoyed the easy hospitality of Jenny and Tom and certainly want to return next year.

Janet and Tony - August 2015

We are from Portugal and have been in lots of places all over the Algarve. Casa Ferrobo is second to none, we had an absolutely amazing time, it is like paradise on earth. Thanks for everything.

Ricardo, Caterina, Sara and Hélio - July 2015

Our first three weeker but not our first visit. As always a warm welcome by Jenny and Tom, who work hard to keep Ferrobo in tip top shape. Eating out at the various restaurants is always a pleasure. The walks are fabulous and we cannot wait to return in October.

Ann and Mike - June 2015

Another enjoyable stay in Gemma cottage. The weather has been very hot and sunny. We have chilled out around the pool and bbq area. Our thanks to Jenny and Tom for their kindness and hospitality, the gardens, pool and cottages are immaculate.

Pet and Ann - June 2015

Our third visit to Casa Ferrobo and as relaxing as ever. Walked two walks this year, both fantastic, the flowers and views are very beautiful at this time of the year. Spent the rest of the time chilling around the pool. We can't wait to come back in 2016.

Hannah, Adam and James - May 2015

Another good week although the weather was changeable it was good for walking. Always wonderful to be back at Casa Ferrobo. See you next year.

Sandra and Ian - April 2015

Casa Ferrobo is the perfect location for walkers with a wide variety of walks to suit everyone's age and ability. The cottage is very comfortable and we have really appreciated the wood-burning stove through the winter. Thank you for all your many kindnesses. You have a very special place here. We will be back.

Pat and Michael - March 2015

Had a great time, fantastic accommodation with great facilities. Definitely hope to return soon.

Chris and Jon - November 2015

From the minute we arrived here we just fell in love with it. Everything about it is just fabulous. Our cottage was perfect, we virtually had the pool to ourselves and it is the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. We cannot wait to come back.

Martyn and Mary - October 2015

We've already booked Emma for next year! Another wonderful and relaxing break. Lovely to see you all again, here's to next year!

Keith and Kim - September 2015

The week spent here has flown past. Lovely cottage with everything you need for a perfect holiday. Loved having the pool virtually to myself! Met some lovely people. Thank you to Jenny and family ? you should be proud.

Jackie and Doug - September 2015

Thank you for a lovely few days, only wish it could have been more. It is such a delightful place, beautiful gardens, lovely pool, a real oasis of peace to relax in which is the essence of a fabulous holiday.

Jo and Bennath Bell - August 2015

We realised we were going to have a good holiday, we love Portugal and it never lets us down but we didn't realise just how wonderful it was going to be. This oasis, what I call 'our bougainvillea paradise' was waiting for us. Thanks trip Advisor! We give it 5 stars.

Jess and Rob - August 2015

Another great relaxing holiday. 5 star site, 3 star prices. Wonderfully clean and attention to detail we cannot fault. Keep up the good work. The hospitality is second to none. Thank you so much.

Julie and Ian - July 2015

Only a short note this time as I have said it all before. Thanks Jenny, Tom and Peter for helping to make our holiday as perfect as ever. See you next year.

Jason and Dinky - July 2015

Imagine a small collection of cottages all spotlessly clean in a peaceful setting with a lovely garden, swimming pool and bbq facility. Then a location close to excellent restaurants and 30 minutes to the coast. Plus owners who work tirelessly to ensure everyone enjoys their holiday. Then you have long sunny days and warm balmy evenings where you can sit outside and enjoy a late night drink under a star laden sky?????? you are here.

Keith and Anita - June 2015

After two weeks at Casa Ferrobo we go home today but have booked for next year. This says it all. After almost 20 years we always find new places to go and new things to do. All the restaurants are good to excellent. Try Alcoutim for an exciting trip from Spain to Portugal by zip wire. Thank you Jenny and Tom for being the best hosts possible and also thanks to Amoita for supplying our hire car. No problems with this company.

George and Dorothy - June 2015

Back at Casa Ferrobo for the third time with a 'newbie' to the real Algarve. Arriving in the late evening it is surprising how quickly you relax in the homely surroundings. Enjoyed another trip to Tavira old town and the island beach which is as beautiful as the Carribean. Thanks, as always, to Jenny, Tom and Peter who ensure that all their guests have a comfortable and wonderful time.

Dave and Rory - May 2015

Approx 7th visit to Casa Ferrobo. Lovely to be back at this time of the year as everywhere is so green. Flowers just coming out and birds such as golden orioles, bee-eaters and flamingoes. Jenny and Tom as helpful, welcoming and friendly as ever. Home from home. Be back soon.

Sue and Michael - March 2015

A lovely girly relax!

Angela and Sonia - February 2015

It is just a pity to leave here today. Such a lovely and relaxing place with all the necessary we need?.hope we can come back for some other holidays. Thank you all!

Nathien and Virginie - August 2015

A hearty 'Amen' to all the previous comments and their testimony of Jenny's hospitality and meticulous care of Casa Ferrobo. Cork factory tour was tops. We feel that we found a treasure in Casa Ferrobo. We will gladly recommend this charming place to friends visiting the Algarve.

Harvey and Elizabeth - June 2015

This is our second visit to Casa Ferrobo this year after spending the winter in Gemma and it was great to be back. We just love the setting in the Barrocal and the gardens and pool area are looking spectacular. We have enjoyed re-visiting favourite places, Tavira, Lagos, Olhão, Santa Luzia and discovering new ones. Thanks Jenny, Tom and Peter for making us feels so welcome and looking after us so well. We will be back!

Michael and Pat - May 2015

Despite going down with a bad cold I managed to enjoy a week of RandR. We visited Faro old town for the first time, a lovely town. We re-visited Armona twice (get the ferry from Olhão.) The beach is lovely and unspoilt and you can get away from the crowds. Lovely weather ? I'm only sorry I did not feel up to the walks this time.

Judith and John - May 2015

This was our first visit to this part of the Algarve ? we have thoroughly enjoyed it. We liked the variety of restaurants in and around Sao Bras and the value that they offered. Even the two top of the range restaurants offered more for your money than the UK equivalents.

Ian and Pam - October 2015

Another wonderful holiday at Casa Ferrobo. Highlight of the this year was the boat trip up the Guadiana river, an anniversary treat which was a fabulous day out. Made some new friends who we will meet again next year.

Graham and Lorraine - October 2015

Could not have enjoyed it more. A more relaxing holiday would be hard to find. Will definitely be returning.

Ken and Shirley - September 2015

Having stayed in Amy before we came in here we have now completed the 'Full Monty'at Casa Ferrobo! Yet again Jenny and Tom are the perfect hosts. All the little details are taken care of. We'll be back.

Emily and Gerry - September 2015

We chose Casa Ferrobo for our honeymoon destination and haven't regretted it for a single second. It exceeded our expectations enormously and has given us the most magical and memorable start to our married life together. It doesn't surprise us that so many people come here time and again ? we can't wait to return ? we loved it.

Gary and Sylvia - August 2015

A very last minute holiday to sunny Portugal. We honestly couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to be. Much of the week was spent discovering many of the different beaches of the Algarve. Other than the beaches, spending time around the pool here has been glorious, perfectly relaxing. We also followed walk no 2 for a couple of early morning runs. It is a superb walk taking you to stunning views - a must! Next time it will be two weeks.

Abbie and Luke - August 2015

We very much needed a rest and time to recuperate in the sun. We certainly found it at Casa Ferrobo. The cottage was great, full of character and clean and comfortable and the surrounding grounds amazing, plenty of space to be had. Many thanks to Jenny, Tom and all at Casa Ferrobo, we were made to feel very welcome.

Pat and Chris - August 2015

We have lost count of the number of times we have been here but it just gets better and better. It's been lovely to meet up with friends from previous visits and a good time was had by all in the bbq area. Weather has been brilliant and the pool has been like a warm bath. Many thanks to Jenny, Tom and crew for their attention to detail and friendliness. Looking forward to coming back next year for more of the same.

Andi and Ali - July 2015

Not long enough! Wonderful stay, wonderful people, very impressed with how clean everywhere is. So relaxing, would love to come here again. Thanks to Jenny, Tom and Peter.

Kim and Bob - July 2015

Thanks Jenny and Tom, had a great time a usual. All the best to all.

Gordon and Caroline - June 2015

Well what more can I say that hasn't already been said. Had a great holiday again after our umpteenth visit to Ferrobo. We will be back same time next year hopefully.

John and Ursula - June 2015

Another lovely stay in Samantha, pretty much everything as we remembered it, still very relaxing. Met some good people, some old friends and some new which always makes Casa Ferrobo so special. Still enjoying Neil's walks, we will have to come at a cooler time of year to try some longer ones. Thanks to you both for all your help and attention during our stay.

Christine and Hugh - June 2015

Only a short stay but very pleasant. It is very peaceful here. We ate out most nights, the beef kebab in A Horta is fantastic. Staying in Samantha has been so comfortable, we are hoping to be back soon.

Coral and Sam - April 2015

Lovely week spent in Samantha. Have done several of the walks. Peter took us to the Ludo reserve where we had a brilliant days bird watching. Thank you for all the lifts you gave us, we will recommend you to walking friends and hope to return another time.

Joan and Shaun - March 2015

Fabulous. We had a lovely relaxing stay at Casa Ferrobo, the grounds and the cottages are beautifully kept and are a real credit to Jenny and Tom. The place has such a homely feel and you are instantly captivated by the rural charm of the place. Everywhere in the town is so cheap, we have hardly spent anything! Next time we will bring walking footwear with us and explore more of this totally unspoilt part of Portugal.

Mike and Jayne - October 2015

Really enjoyed our stay here and will recommend Casa Ferrobo to friends. The pool and gardens are lovely and the layout of the cottages gives the feeling of a little village. Jenny and Tom have been extremely hospitable, particularly with lifts to and from the town in the evenings. Thank you!

Dick and Denise - September 2015

Once again we have had a lovely time at Casa Ferrobo. Jenny and Tom provided very useful local knowledge and a warm welcome. Lovely weather, great surroundings, wonderful holiday.

Roger and Anne - September 2015

Simply fabulous. Great location, lovely accommodation and pool and gardens. Made all the moor sweeter by the warm welcome from Tom and Soraya. Can't recommend it enough.

Calvin and family - August 2015

We have had a lovely time, haven't done much at all this holiday because of the heat but we still managed Faro beach a couple of times. We have been here now probably 18 times since 2008, already planning next year's visit. Thanks Jen, Tom and Soraya and Peter for yet another fantastic holiday. Can't really say anything else.

Roger and Sue - July 2015

What can we say? Fabulous! As good as always, if not better. Said it before, a little oasis. Gardens superb, everything you need, we will be back. Cork factory in Sao Bras has a great tour and visit, very interesting.

Lynsey and Lloyd - June 2015

Have written so many times in this book. It is always lovely to come back. Nice to see Jenny, Tom and Peter keeping up the good work. Went to Praia Verde for the first time, beautiful beach and the glass restaurant overlooking the beach is well worth having a meal there. Thank you for making my stay special.

Pat - May 2015

Third trip this year. We cannot wait to come back once again. We have enjoyed eating out at all the local restaurants, even managed a couple of swims in the pool.

Ann and Mike - October 2014

Arrived just after 10pm but were given the same warm welcome from Jenny and Tom. The cottages and grounds get better every year, if that is possible? There are always some new and old people to share your stories of Ferrobo with and that is part of the attraction. A very big thank you to Jenny, Tom and Peter.

Jan and Phil - October 2014

A quickie holiday in Casa Ferrobo again! One of the pleasures here is the ability to check the availability and then book a flight and we are here enjoying the brilliant hospitality again. As ever we have enjoyed our stay and will return in 2015.

Pat and David - September 2014

Back again! The comments throughout this book are a testament to the wonderful atmosphere at Casa Ferrobo. In a busy world isn't it lovely to find a haven to really relax in? We have just celebrated my 60th birthday here and all our children joined us for a week. What a fabulous holiday this has been and one I will remember always. Thank you.

Judy and Geoff - September 2014

Our third visit to Casa Ferrobo and it remains a wonderful haven of tranquility and beauty. The cottages and grounds are immaculately kept and Jenny and Tom are the perfect hosts - always a discreet step away if needed.

Pauline and Bernie - August 2014

Our third visit, something of a habit! Our favourite place is Fuzeta, lots to see, wildlife, fishermen and watching the world go by. We love all the fresh produce, avocados, tomatoes, chillies, beans etc and enjoyed the markets at Olhão, Loulé and of course Sao Bras. We go home once again totally relaxed and refreshed.

Kathy and Phil - July 2014

We thank you for a perfect holiday, ten of us in four of the cottages to celebrate Ann's 60th birthday. What could have been better, lovely surroundings, warm sunny days and great walks with easy to follow directions. The swimming pool was well used and we enjoyed convivial meal times in the bbq area.

Lynn and Chris, Ann and Dave - October 2014

What a fab week we have had, every day sunshine and blue skies. As always everywhere is spick and span and we have been looked after so well. It is about our 8th time to stay at Casa Ferrobo - we love the garden and the pool and all the lovely places to visit.

Margaret and Garry - October 2014

Just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had here and to say thank you for all your care and attention. You have a very special place here and we are all going home feeling relaxed and well.

Nicky, Ray and Les - September 2014

Casa Ferrobo is in the perfect location for walks in the woods and up the hills as well as drives to the towns and beaches. Jenny and family are so welcoming and really made us feel at home.

Jenny and Mark - September 2014

We were at Casa Ferrobo for a short stay so that we could attend a family wedding. It has offered us the perfect relaxation in between our hectic family gatherings. We would love to come back.

Liz, Harry and Oliver - August 2014

This is my first rip to Casa Ferrobo and it was definitely worth a trip all the way from Australia. Amazingly relaxing and beautiful, love this little piece of paradise.

Maria - August 2014

Another wonderful holiday at Casa Ferrobo. Jenny, Tom and Peter's hospitality is amazing. Be back same time next year.

Steve and Berney - August 2014

Blowy and chilly to start with but much better as the time went on. Can't wait to be back in September.

John and Trudy - May 2014

Had a lovely weeks holiday, great weather, everything we expected and more. Many thanks for allowing a complete family celebration for my mum's 65th birthday.

The Carey Family - May 2014

Ideal walking centre with well researched guides. Jenny, Tom and Peter are full of information about where to go on days out and walks and where to eat. Had a great time.

Tim - April 2014

My first taste of Portugal and I could not have hoped for a better place to begin the association. Casa Ferrobo is beautiful with all the plants and flowers. Walking around the area is varied and very interesting with hosts of dramatic scenery. Excellent weeks holiday and very much hope to return soon.

Neville - April 2014

We have been coming to Casa Ferrobo since 2003. I have used every superlative in the book to describe our feelings for this place! We have enjoyed our three weeks as always but already booked for next year. Thanks for another memorable holiday.

Jason and Dinky - October 2014

Our 2nd visit in two years so we have some way to go to meet the frequency of visits from others but we will be working on it. It's just delightful, comfortable and easy and relaxing as one wishes it to be. We did a couple of the walks this year and wish we had done more! Just a great time!

Mike and Julia - September 2014

Another wonderful few days here, we feel so relaxed and refreshed. Our 4th time and we never tire of the lovely gardens and pergola.

See 6th to 20th August 2012! Nothing more to add really - brilliant holiday so we've booked for next year. Faultless. Thanks Jenny and Tom

Thank you Jenny, Tom and Peter for making everything so relaxing. It has been so enjoyable once again.

Peaceful, relaxing, wonderful. Friendly people, thank you.

Mark and Carol - June 2014

Fabulous holiday, so relaxing. We couldn't thank Tom and Jenny enough for such a wonderful stay.

Janet and family - May 2014

Our 2nd visit, not our last we hope. Many thanks to Jenny and Tom for the warm welcome and help. Despite the hot weather we enjoyed three of the walks.

Ian and June - April 2014

All as good as usual. Good trip to Lagos and Cape St Vincent, also to Alcoutim, well worth the effort. Jenny and Peter again wonderful hosts, what more can you want from a holiday?

Sandra and Ian - April 2014

Had a great time as usual, Jenny goes the extra mile, even providing a fantastic birthday cake. See you in June.

Caroline and Gordon - March 2014

We have had a fantastic holiday, our 2nd visit this year. We have been out and about this time, usually we are very lazy but we have enjoyed doing a few things. We did no 9 walk, it was great, saw lots of birds, fish and fabulous flamingos. We also went on the Guadiana river cruise which was a great day out. Already booked for next year.

Roger and Sue - October 2014

Sylvie and Roy - September 2014

Well here we are again, our 10th year at Casa Ferrobo. How Jenny and Tom can make our stay here better and better each time I have no idea but long may it continue.

What a lovely place, so glad we found it, just what we needed. Beautiful gardens and really peaceful - close enough to see everything we wanted and far enough from the maddening crowds!

Loretta and Ludger - August 2014

A very big thank you to Jenny and Tom for our first visit to Casa Ferrobo. What a beautiful place to stay, an oasis.

Justin and Lisa - August 2014

Our 3rd visit to Casa Ferrobo but our first with our daughter and son-in-law. The week has gone too fast a usual. We've loved the swimming and bbq evenings and the bird watching walk in the Rio Formosa was brilliant.

Andrea and Peter - August 2014

Our 7th time now and although only a few days this time better than none at all. Lovely weather with lots of swimming. Still managed walks up the hill despite the heat.

Sue and Michael - August 2014

We now think this is our 15th time since 2008. I can't really say any more than that! It is fabulous here. Great time!

First visit for 7 years and still a great place to be. Thanks to Jenny, Tom and Peter for another splendid holiday.

Margaret and Garry - May 2014

Another fantastic visit to Casa Ferrobo. Weather was brilliant and it was so relaxing to chill out by the pool, go on one of the lovely walks in the area and visit the local restaurants in the evening.

James - May 2014

We came here to celebrate my 60th, what a wonderful place to do that. Amy was a delight to stay in and we made good use of the BBQ area. Thank you so much for your hospitality and making our week so enjoyable.

Graham and Michele - April 2014

Beautiful and peaceful week. Fascinating variety of countryside and places and excellent restaurants. Impeccable hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. Walking excellently described by Neil, a wonderful way of exploring the area for those who enjoy walking. Kevyn's 'best holiday ever'. We will return.

Eileen and Kevyn - October 2014

Had another lovely holiday here and struck lucky with the weather again. Enjoyed our daily strolls. The drive to Alcoutim is well worth it and then follow the Guadiana river down to Vila Real. Thank you Jenny and Tom for your kindness and providing so much to make a memorable holiday.

Mike and Barbara - October 2014

Another wonderful stay at Casa Ferrobo. We came for a complete rest and chill out and that is what we got. Lazy this time as we didn't do any of the walks but had a few good trips out. Thanks again to Jenny and Tom for looking after us so well.

Graham and Lorraine - October 2014

Once again we enjoyed our stay as we did 4 years ago. Weather not so good as last time but we still enjoyed ourselves.

June and Mick - September 2014

9 nights in Casa Ferrobo, 9 nights in paradise! We stayed part of the time by ourselves and part of the time with extended family in the other casas! Every day here was beautiful, we both enjoyed a very relaxing, chilled out holiday with swimming and sunbathing taking up most of the days. The family was here to celebrate my mother's 60th and we had a great gathering. Such a fabulous time here, our 3rd visit, and we certainly hope to come again. Many thanks.

Nikki and Will - September 2014

Some people say that you shouldn't go back when you have found a place so beautiful just in case it isn't as good when you return, well they are wrong! We have come back for the third time and again we cannot fault it. I think it actually gets more beautiful every year. A huge thank you to Jenny, Tom and Peter for their kindness and fantastic welcome.

Sallie and Richard - August 2014

We chose Casa Ferrobo for our honeymoon following weeks of searching for a relaxed quiet cottage. It fit the bill perfectly! It is a beautiful location for a quiet holiday away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It was difficult to tear ourselves away from the superb gardens and pool but we did enjoy days out in Olhao and Tavira and the Saturday market in Loulé. Thank you for your hospitality.

Vicky and Oscar - August 2014

Jenny and Tom could give lessons in customer service, nothing is too much trouble for them. We have had an excellent time and we cannot believe the value for money achieved by staying away from the main resorts. Here it is beautiful and peaceful and we are considering a winter break to take advantage of the walking opportunities.

Dave and Anne - August 2014

Thank you for a lovely holiday. All the care you put in Casa Ferrobo shows and I am not surprised you get so many repeat visitors. I have had superb weather, not a cloud in the sky and the pool has been well used. I've enjoyed the restaurants and cafés around and found the Portuguese very welcoming. I will be back.

Pam - July 2014

Tom and Jenny, you must be fed up with us singing your praises but once again a fabulous time, great walks, food and cottage. See you soon.

Gordon and Caroline - June 2014

Really great and very relaxing holiday. Cottages are really lovely, spent lots of time by the pool. Weather was pretty fab, and spent a few days at the beach. Had the best week!

Laura and George - June 2014

Best holiday I have had in years. The cottages are so well equipped I wanted for nothing. Most days were spent around the fabulous pool area. BBQ's on the terrace in the evenings were wonderful and the restaurants in town were cheap and cheerful. Thanks to Jenny, Tom and Peter for a wonderful week.

Anne - May 2014

Been to the Algarve twice before but first timers here at Casa Ferrobo. What a gem! Friendly hosts, superb surroundings and accommodation, what more could you ask for? Weather hot but we did three walks, saw a variety of birds on the salt flats near Faro. Also heard nightingales when in the shower! The wild flowers were wonderful and had scrummy cakes on the cork and cake walk.

Elspeth and Ken - May 2014

We had an incredible time here again and don't want to leave! We are always so grateful for all the personal little touches that you add to make our stay even better.

Hannah and Adam - May 2014

Our cottage was perfect with all the things you needed available to us. The Easter parade was very good even though the rain tried hard to put the dampers on it. Thank you Tom and Jenny for all the advice and tips about restaurants and where to travel to. Will return one day without a doubt.

Dave and Marge - April 2014

Fabulous week, weather superb, Jenny, Peter and Tom so friendly and helpful. Lovely, lazy days relaxing by the pool. Did two nice walks, set you up for eating out, had the best steak for years. Will be back.

Nigel and Lesley - April 2014

Another fabulous holiday at Casa Ferrobo, weather fantastic, sun every day. Good walks and lovely wild flowers. We like it so much we ae coming to live here! Many thanks Jenny, Tom and Peter for once again making our stay so enjoyable. Will be seeing more of you soon!

Barbara and Brian - March 2014

Another chunk of time has swiftly wafted its way over this corner of utter contentment. Casa Ferrobo grounds look more colourful than ever. The walks from here are as tranquil or extreme as you could wish for. Terrific time!

Neil - October 2014

This is our first visit to Casa Ferrobo which we have enjoyed immensely . We have met some really nice people staying here who have all been numerous times before over a number of years and keep coming back - a real testament to the place. This looks like a trend we will be continuing as we have booked already for next year. The cottage is really homely and has everything you need.

Andy and Tracy - September 2014

Thank you Jenny and Tom for our stay in Lucy. We loved it and it has such a lovely atmosphere. Soaked up the sun by the relaxing pool and loved the bbq's we did most evenings.

Rachel and Dan - August 2014

What a delightful place! Although we were only here for 4 days we have packed a lot in. Spent lots of time lazing by the pool, so peaceful and such a lovely garden. Will recommend you and hope to return.

Rob and Veronica - July 2014

We have really enjoyed our first trip to the Algarve. We are reluctantly leaving a little more relaxed, a lot browner and very happy to have chanced upon Casa Ferrobo. The week flew and was too short but we'll be back!

Ian and Geraldine - July 2014

Had a lovely stay in Casa Lucy for three weeks. The cottage has everything you need. Home from home. Drove down from Lancashire, hoping to do it again next year. Thanks Jenny and Tom.

Paul and Heather - June 2014

Lovely place to stay, beautifully kept pool and garden area. Lovely cottage, compact but plenty of space. Weather was great as was the hospitality. Thank you.

Harriet - June 2014

Multiple visits but first time in Lucy - weather fantastic and the welcome from Jenny, Tom and Peter superb. Found a new bar that serves brilliant cocktails and draught beer! Until we return

Emily and Gerry - May 2014

My second visit to this paradise in the real Algarve. This time a short mini break with friends. Thanks to Jenny and Tom for their hospitality, returning to Casa Ferrobo feels like coming home. We had some relaxing time around the pool and some lovely meals out.

Dave - May 2014

Ah well, here we are again, Lucy is my second home. Had a lovely time as usual, came a couple of weeks earlier this year to be here for Easter Sunday flower parade and 'Alleuia', not to be missed.

Pat - April 2014

Just a short break this time after following our 10 day stay in August. Completely different from then, quiet beaches and towns. Had a lovely relaxing time.

Jo and Shaun - October 2013

Our first stay and what a delight to find a place which really is how it looks on the website. We loved the peace, lack of commercialism, natural countryside and the genuine relaxed welcome from Jenny and Tom. All the walks were accurately described and a real pleasure to have that variety.

Ross and Joan - October 2013

Another fantastic perfect holiday on our 5th visit here. Always made to feel so welcome and Jenny and Tom continue to be as helpful and enthusiastic as ever. Will be back soon.

Phil and Audrey - September 2013

We have had a lovely week here and been made to feel very welcome. We had lovely days out at Barril beach and Armora beach, beautiful with calm sea and very few people. Thank you Jenny and Tom.

Antonia and John - September 2013

The holiday was just what we needed. Slow, lazy walks through interesting local places followed by sunbathing and swimming in what felt like our own private pool. We especially appreciated the recommended restaurants all of which were excellent. We hope to return soon.

Carol and Mike - July 2013

Wonderful, restful holiday once again. Thanks for making us so welcome. Back next year!

Dave and Carol - July 2013

Wonderful holiday once again, the tranquility and delights of Casa Ferrobo have recharged our batteries once more. We have been very lazy after a busy time - heaven! Thank you so much Jenny and Tom for all the little extras that really do complete the holiday. We will be back!

Kathy and Phil - July 2013

We would like to thank Jenny, Tom and Peter for sharing their acre of heaven with us. The accommodation is 1st class, the grounds stunning, the bbq gazebo is brilliant. Visit the cafe in the square for a coffee and custard tart. Yum Yum.

Jeanette and Phil - June 2013

Been twice before some 10-15 years ago and were pleasantly surprised that our lovely Sao Bras had not changed in character from all those years ago. Jenny, Tom and Peter were most welcoming and helpful and we certainly look forward to coming again.

David and Sonia - May 2013

Our first visit to Casa Ferrobo but hopefully not our last. Managed trips to Tavira and Silves and did five varied walks from the Casa. Managed to get into the pool twice. Enjoyed eating locally, good quality and reasonably priced. Hope to return soon with some walking friends.

David and Ann - October 2013

Another fantastic two weeks in Gemma. Weather has been exceptionally great. Went on a number of walks and look forward to doing more next time we are here.

Nancy, Alison and Simon - October 2013

First week hot and sunny, this week drizzle and cloud but still a great holiday. Hope to be booked in for this time next year. Thanks everyone.

John and Trudy - September 2013

Thanks Jenny and Tom for a lovely holiday. Gemma was a great place to stay and base ourselves for beach visits. Pool and terrace were relaxing and made dinner time special. Fantastic holiday had!

Nick and Kaddi - September 2013

This is a lovely cottage to be in ? pool and garden views and a soft breeze through the bedroom French doors. We've visited all our local haunts and we've tended to be beach bound at this time of the year. For naturalists I have to say I will miss the nightingale singing in the trees during the daytime! All in all we thoroughly recommend Casa Ferrobo at any time of the year. Jenny and Tom are so welcoming and the personal service is outstanding.

Pat and David - September 2013

Another return visit to our 'family' in Portugal. Casa Ferrobo is our little bit of heaven on earth and we always know we'll go home relaxed and refreshed. We both know we will be back.

Keith and Julie - August 2013

We've really enjoyed our week, loved walking, bird watching and touring but above all we've loved spending time around the pool relaxing. This is an oasis of peace and tranquility.

Andrea and Peter - July 2013

Fabulous 4 day holiday to celebrate a friends 70th birthday and now we know about Casa Ferrobo we will definitely be returning. The gardens are beautiful and the cottages like home. A special thank you to Tom for being our taxi.

Margaret, Rita and Ruth - July 2013

Yet again a lovely visit to your cottage and beautiful gardens. We had a wonderful relaxing week. Thanks so much.

Sally and Len - July 2013

Another relaxing stay at Casa Ferrobo. Weather great, such a comfortable cottage. The garden is a picture. Thank you very much for a super week.

Chris and Jacky - June 2013

Had a fantastic time, weather has been super. Been in the pool and eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner outside. Taken a trip to Parises, the spring flowers are lovely. Thanks to Jen, Tom and Peter.

Roger and Sue - May 2013

We've enjoyed our holiday very much, thank you to Jenny and Tom for making us feel so welcome. We went to Benajil and did a lovely walk along the coast and also to Cachopo and the Spanish border. It was an amazing trip.

Tim, Catherine and Fran - April 2013

Such a lovely relaxing holiday in a very comfortable cottage. Thank you for a very enjoyable Algarve (first) stay and the introduction to such a variety of walks. We very much hope to come again.

Sandra, Barbara and Prue - March 2013

Another fabulous holiday at Casa Ferrobo. Weather has been fantastic for the whole week. Re-visited lots of our favourite places and restaurants. Very relaxing holiday, one of the Algarve's best kept secrets. Thanks again to Jenny, Tom and Peter for making our holiday so special.

Barb and Brian - October 2013

We have enjoyed our stay here once again. First time in Emma, cottage very comfortable and well equipped. Jenny and Tom have looked after us well and keep the cottages and gardens lovely. Weather has been hot and sunny, restaurants still as good as ever.

Ann and Pete - September 2013

We have enjoyed many holidays in Portugal, this was our first to this region. Due to the excellent weather we were easily down to the beaches on the eastern side and found those significantly less commercialised than on the west. As for Casa Ferrobo ? exceeded our expectations beyond belief. We have made a reservation for next year, thank you Jenny and Tom ? just fabulous.

Mike and Julia - September 2013

How lovely to be greeted in such a lovely, homely way and arrived with family to celebrate my son in laws 60th birthday. We really enjoyed getting together with friends on the pergoda and spent many evenings there having bbq's. The whole complex is very well maintained. What a lovely holiday.

Cath - August 2013

Our first time in Portugal, our first time not in a hotel! Loved Casa Emma and the pool and gardens. Had some great walks, all in all a fab week!

Janice and Ray - July 2013

What can we say that has not already been said about Casa Ferrobo, it is a wonderful place. We have found lots of places to go and things to see from information Jenny has provided. All our best wishes and many thanks.

Anne and Philip - July 2013

Thank you again Jenny and Tom for a wonderful holiday and great hospitality. The places we have visited have been wonderful but all those are made extra special by being able to relax at Casa Ferrobo (Paradise), no other place like it. We are totally relaxed and refreshed.

Dorothy and George - July 2013

This is our 8th or 9th visit, have lost count. When we leave we are always looking forward to our next visit. We can never thank Jenny, Tom and Peter enough for the way they look after us - we regard them as friends and Casa Ferrobo as 'home from home'.

Jason and Dinky - June 2013

We walked each day trying some new ones and some old. Flowers were superb! We enjoyed our stay again with Jenny and Tom being informative and helpful hosts.

The Warings - May 2013

Again a very good holiday, the weather remained in the 20C's. As usual everyone was friendly and Ian has enjoyed three of the longer walks. As always our thanks to Jenny and Tom for all the effort they put in.

Sandra and Ian - April 2013

Thank you for a very warm welcome and the helpful advice regarding the walks, flower festival etc. We enjoyed staying in the comfortable cottage, so peaceful and well located. We hope to return.

Karel and Krystyna - April 2013

A fabulous idyllic paradise, I can say this is my favourite place I have ever holidayed in. Everywhere is spotless, the pool is gorgeous, flowers stunning. All in all a fabulous time we had.

Sylvia and Roy - September 2013

Casa Ferrobo has been a perfect spot to relax and unwind. The walks on the doorstep are wonderful and definitely to be recommended ? if you can pull yourselves away from the lovely poolside.

Jemima and Andrew - September 2013

Thanks for making our first visit to the Algarve such a fantastic experience. You work so hard to make us feel part of the Casa Ferrobo family and were always available with help or ideas for places to visit. We have explored one end of the Algarve to the other but there are still so many places to see which means we will have to become part of the returning team! This is a beautiful, quiet place to relax. Thanks again for all your help and support.

Kath and Peter - August 2013

A unique holiday for us. All our needs were catered for. The gardens created a beautiful oasis of green with sunny and shady areas. Everything was clean and in good order. It was great to be able to cool off in the brilliant swimming pool. We loved the walks we tried and were very impressed by the care and thoughtfulness that had been put into them.

Ben and Val - July 2013

Good to see you once again. The garden and pool fantastic, wish I could take the pool home. See you again soon.

Pat - July 2013

Another lovely holiday at Casa Ferrobo. Thank you Jenny, Tom and Peter. Weather beautiful all week. See you next year.

Anita and Keith - June 2013

Our second visit to Casa Ferrobo and just as enjoyable as the first. The weather was not too hot to stop us doing nice long walks, we also saw plenty of wildflowers. We will be back, need to try every cottage, Lucy and Amy so far!

Michelle and Ken - May 2013

Our first visit to Casa Ferrobo, we have loved it, pool, garden, everything. All but two days in fourteen been great weather. We've enjoyed the walks and found the routes excellent and easy to follow. We've found Samantha thoughtfully equipped and have been wonderfully well looked after by Tom. Thank You.

Barbara and Mike - October 2013

Once again a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Samantha. Managed some nice walks, roll on March.

Gordon and Caroline - October 2013

This place really grows on you! Home comforts, very clean and well presented, we like Casa Samantha a lot. We spent our first week walking in the area, the guides are easy to follow and quite comprehensive. We hired a car for our second week and travelled further afield exploring as far as the Spanish border in the hills at Alcoutim which is a lovely place. Overall, we are smitten with the Casa and the 'real Algarve' experience and will certainly be back to continue enjoying this beautiful area.

Steve and Chris - September 2013

Another very enjoyable vacation. Jenny and Tom's attention to detail continues to impress. Ysconderijo (opposite the Avenida) is still our favourite restaurant. Took Jenny's advice to give Fuzeta beach a try and we were not disappointed and had a lovely fish lunch at the river side. Haste ye back.

Emily and Gerry - August 2013

This is our second time here and in Samantha ? it is starting to feel like home! Again an amazing relaxful stay ? a perfect way to start our summer holidays. The gardens and the pool remain our little sanctuary. Our phrase of the week ? It's just SO quiet. A huge thanks to Jenny and Tom for their hospitality and kindness. We hope to be back again same place, same time next year!

Sallie and Richard - August 2013

Had a fantastic stay in Samantha, weather was fab. Spent most of our time around the pool, we love the gardens. Had a day in Fuzeta on the beach and a day at the Aquashow water park. Highly recommend eating lots of fish when you are here! Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

Will and Jo - July 2013

We have broken our habit of never visiting the same place twice and as usual the welcome and attention to detail from Jenny and Tom has been second to none. We are already thinking of attempting some further walks so a visit in slightly cooler climes is on the cards. Many thanks again to Jenny and Tom ? keep up the good work, it is very much appreciated.

Christine and Hugh - July 2013

Another perfect holiday enjoyed by all. We are really running out of suitable metaphors to describe this wonderful idyll. No wonder Casa Ferrobo consistently maintains its no1 position in Sao Bras. I would venture to suggest it includes the whole of the Algarve. Thank you Jenny, Tom and Peter for all your hard work and great company.

Ursula and John - June 2013

Our first visit to this part of the Algarve, hopefully it won't be our last! Samantha has a lot going for her. Walks wonderful, very nice restaurants in town and very friendly locals. Brilliant holiday.

Chris and Dave - May 2013

This is our fifth visit in two and a half years. Everything is lush and green in the spring and the masses of wild flowers have been particularly impressive. Have seen golden oriel, hoopoe and bee eaters. As always a warm welcome from Jenny and Tom and made friends again with all the animals.

Michael and Sue - May 2013

A warm welcome from Jenny and Tom. Weather sunny and fine for walking, plenty of flowers and the chance to see turtles in the river, we have never seen so many flowers and such variety. We have seen 11 different orchids and the nightingale sings morning and evening in the bushes outside the cottage. This is our second visit and we hope to return again.

Dave and Jenny - April 2013

My second sojourn is Samantha and what an excellent gaffe she is. The usual extravagant welcome from the Casa Ferrobo 'gang'. Tootled around a good selection of the walks, no trouble following these but not yet made it into the pool. Chicken Luis and the Avenida still as good as ever and the little restaurant opposite the Avenida is also well worth a visit. Already planning another visit.

Neil - April 2013

Another relaxing holiday at Casa Ferrobo. Our first stay in Samantha having used three of the other cottages previously. The usual excellent hospitality from Jenny, Tom and Peter with the breakfast provisions for our first morning being particularly welcome. Looking forward to our next visit in the not too distant future.

Graham and Lorraine - March 2013

Thank you for your warm welcome, Jenny and Tom ? it helped to compensate for the wet weather!

David and Eleanor - March 2013

My first visit to Casa Ferrobo. After just a day or two I felt like a regular visitor. Jenny, Tom and Peter made me feel so at home. I have enjoyed the walking from Casa Ferrobo and the printed walks were easy to follow. Great walks, comfortable accommodation, hot showers, cold beers and cheap red wine! What more could an old boy want?

Peter - February 2013

Thank you Jenny and Tom for a lovely relaxing stay. We did not book until late but have managed to be accommodated in three cottages for our 11 night stay. All were immaculate and well equipped and Jenny and Tom go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We will definitely be coming back very soon.

Averil and Malcolm - September 2013

Lovely place to stay. We enjoyed several of the walks in the folder, especially the bird watching walk near Faro beach. We will be back in the spring to see the hills green and the wild flowers.

John and Judith - September 2013

Our first visit to Portugal and certainly now won't be our last. The whole experience at Casa Ferrobo is pretty unique. It's a jewel in the hillside, everywhere is spotlessly clean. A trip into the hills is a must, the views are panoramic and an abundance of wildlife.

Shaun and Jo - August 2013

Another fantastic holiday comes to a close, we spent our days reading books by the lovely pool. We went to our favourite restaurants and also stayed in and took advantage of all the wonderful facilities Casa Ferrobo has to offer. Again Jenny and Tom you have worked your magic and we look forward to returning next year.

Ali and Andy - July 2013

Our 4th visit and another great holiday. Every time we visit we think how lucky we are to have found this beautiful place to stay. The gardens are just delightful, full of the most lovely birds and butterflies.

Dawn and Keith - July 2013

Another great stay. Gardens look superb and just make it even more idyllic. Little touches make the difference. Great mix of relaxing, walking, beaches, local towns, scenery and food. Hope to be back!

Lydnsey and Lloyd - June 2013

Spent some nights in Gemma, went west for 2 nights then back in Lucy for the remainder of our 17 night stay. We have lost count how many times we have been here but it gets better every time. Visited Tavira, Faro old town, Faro beach and spent lots of time reading and relaxing by the pool. Many thanks once again.

Roger and Sue - May 2013

Just notched up my 27th visit and looking forward to coming at Easter next year to see the wonderful parade with all the flowers. I like the comfort of Ferrobo and the slow pace of Sao Bras. Thank you, Jenny Tom and Peter.

Pat - May 2013

Our first journey into the Algarve (a long way from our homes), loved the walking trails and the very cosy surrounds of Lucy.
