Ferragudo guide


As part of our Ferragudo guide we’ll start by telling you that to get here from Faro on the EN123 you have to take the turn just before Portimao Bridge, thus you’ll be reaching this western Algarvian ‘Cornish’ town.

Silves attractions – Silves castle


The Algarve town of Silves is one place that maybe not so many have heard about, it is quite well-known to those who have already been to the region, but for those who think of the Algarve as just great beaches and coastal resorts, the Silves attractions are there to provide some nice contrast.

As opposed to most other potential visiting places that you’ll find in the Algarve, Silves is set on the banks of the Arade River, a charming town peppered with orange and lemon trees and deeply steeped in history.
