‘Cocheira’ means ‘carriage house’, which was the former function of this beautifully located beach house close to Praia Grande, the beach of Ferragudo. The carriage house used to belong to the neighboring Castle of Ferragudo. However, in last century the carriage house has been split from the castle and has gotten its own independent purpose. In 2016, the current owners started the transformation of the carriage house into a luxury villa. The result of this transformation will be a unique beach house at 2 minutes walking distance of the beach and 5 minutes to center of Ferragudo.
The villa consists of eight 2-persons bedrooms, all equipped with a bathroom with a walk-in shower, a washstand and a toilet. The spacious living room features a very comfortable lounge sofa, a small bar and a dining table for 16 persons. The living room gives a great view of the terrace and the beautiful garden. The kitchen consists of two refrigerators, a freezer, a wine fridge, a dishwasher and a large stove.
The large mezzanine, which functions as a TV area, shows a great view of the kitchen and the living room. The spacious entrance of the villa provides access to the mezzanine and consists of a guest bathroom. From the living room you can access the large garden with a high diversity of fruit trees. A beautiful terrace is located on the left side of the villa. Lastly, the villa provides a parking area with four parking spaces.

We had a perfect two weeks with friends and all our children in the great villa Cocheira. Close to the nice beach with great restaurants, and with our own pool, parking, 8 rooms and bathrooms and everything else you can think off. Very good service and reception and not to forget everything the Algarve has to offer. p.s.: Do not forget to visit the impressive village Silves.

Fantastic house! It is beautifully and cosily decorated, has a nice pool and is close to the beach. Even with a smaller group you can have a nice and cosy stay in this big house. Many useful tips in an information book, washing machine with detergent (!), delicacies upon arrival, well-equipped kitchen, very nice host, in short, the details are very well done!

We really had a great time here. We were with several families with small children and this house is perfect for that. Swimming pool good, private parking space, gates with locks. Each bedroom its own bathroom. Large, long tables. Communication with the owner and with the house manager on site was top. We can recommend this to everyone!
Ps. I have uploaded drone images of this great stay on their google listing.

What a wonderful time I had here with my family! The villa is even more beautiful in real life than in the pictures. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, so that each couple had its own place to retreat to. The furnishing is completely contemporary. It really gave me a ‘Marrakech vibe’. The swimming pool has enough seating and sunbathing areas for 16 people. The terrace can easily be closed off with a gate, ideal for the little kids that were walking around with us. The beach was literally a minute’s walk away, where you can find nice restaurants. Highly, highly recommended!

An amazing villa at an ideal location. The beach is your backyard and the village with many nice restaurants is at walking distance. The villa (and the garden) is tastefully decorated and fully equipped.
Suited for both families and groups of friends. On top of that the host is really great, highly recommended.

What an amazing holiday home, for multiple families but also for a large group! We stayed here with a large group of golfers which went perfectly. Every bedroom has its own bathroom, which offers enough privacy.
The villa is decorated tastefully with attention to detail.
With just a short walk you are at the beach which offers several nice restaurants. There are plenty parking places at the villa. The cozy village is at walking distance
We will definitely come back!

We had the most wonderful stay at Villa Cocheira in June 2022. Our party was made up of 3 families and the villa provided plenty of space for us all. The villa is beautifully designed and well fitted out and equipped with everything we needed (e.g. coffee machine, washing machine, dish washer, lost of fridge space, lots of bathrooms!). The outdoor space is fantastic with a brilliant dining area with a BBQ, that has gated access down to the pool area (ideal for keeping little toddlers out of danger). The pool itself is a great size and depth for families to use. The villa is in a fantastic location, only minutes to walk to the beach (and Club Nau – a fantastic restaurant and bar on the beach). The town is also a very close walk away which has a few restaurants, cafes and shops. There is also a couple of kids playparks very close by which we used a lot with the children. We had a great stay and only wish we could have stayed longer!

Perfect house in a perfect setting a short walk from a fabulous beach and beach bars. Beautifully furnished with everything we needed as a family of 14. Lots of space which meant that we were never on top of one another. Our teenagers and small children loved the pool whilst the adults relaxed on sun beds and sofas in the peaceful garden area. The pictures don’t capture the ambience of the well proportioned interior which is spacious yet feels very cosy and comfortable. Our family didn’t want to leave and we would highly recommend this amazing house – we’re looking forward to returning next year!
We had a wonderful time at villa Cocheira with my family and friends. We loved everything about the Villa, it is fantastic, even more amazing than pictures. It is situated in a gorgeous location, short walk from the beach and tons of things to do and visit within short driving distance.
Great outdoor space with pool and lounge chairs and a beautiful set up for the whole group to have meals outside.
Very responsive owner and extremely helpful manager provided us with local recommendations and answered my numerous questions. Would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone and would be happy to return any time!
