"Our first time in Portugal. Lovely warm welcome to the cottage by hosts Jenny and Tom who were most helpful in every way. A perfect base from which to explore the Algarve, with its great birding and stunning flower-rich hills and meadows. Very impressed with all we encountered and hope to return for more in the not too distant future."

"Have been coming here for past 15 years and it is fabulous, set in the hills, easy access, great pool and the cottages are wonderful. We sometimes meet up with other couples we have met over the years here and have great barbecues. Jenny and Tom cannot do enough to help you enjoy your stay."

"Yet another wonderful holiday at Casa Ferrobo with excellent hosts Jenny and Tom. It is such a quiet and peaceful place with a beautiful garden and swimming pool. Also the village of Sao Bras is a typical Portuguese atmosphere. It also is a great place to stay when wishing to explore the real Algarve."

"Stayed for a week at Casa Ferrobo with my long time friend. we wanted rest and relaxation. Another reviewer has described this place as a hidden gem', how right they are, if you want to recharge away from the horrors of modern life - this is the place for you!
The gardens and pool area are absolutely beautiful. It is very rural and rustic - so if you're expecting nightlife and all mod-cons forget it! Casa Ferrobo was perfect for us because it was away from all the hustle and bustle, in case I've misled you - there are enough mod-cons to make your life easy - microwave, juicer, great showers.plenty of hot water. Plenty of outside seating options and BBQ facilliies. Locally there are a number of towns, villages and fantastic little restaurants.
Jenny picked us up/dropped off at Faro airport and continued to very kindly give us lifts during the week, we even used the excellent bus service to Faro, taxis are available in Sao Bras de Alportel - the nearest town. We found the taxi service reasonably cheap - our most expensive fare was 11 euros from Loule to Casa Ferrobo. Jenny and Tom keep the place looking immaculate and are great, knowledgable hosts! What more can you ask for?"

"We stayed in Casa Ferrobo in September 2015 and to be honest, we could not wait to go back in September 2016. This place is just magical. The grounds, cottages and walks are fabulous but what makes this place extra special is the care and attention given by the owner Jenny and her son Tom. This is a great base to explore the Algarve and has endless places to eat out to suit any budget. If you don't feel like eating out you can always barbecue. We met lovely people and shared a couple of great evenings in their company. Needless to say we have booked again for next year...and can't wait to return."

"We have been coming to Ferrobo for many years now, and standards have always remained tremendously high.
Jenny and Tom make you feel instantly welcome and the cottages are very well maintained and spotless - as is the poolside.
But one thing that always makes me happy is the beautiful appearance of Ferrobo, with it's delightful flowers, plants and gardens.
We spend most of our time at the cottage and the pool - forgoing the many trips out we could do. It is a time and the perfect place for complete relaxation.
One of the other pluses for us, about Ferrobo, is that it is adults only which helps to maintain the peace!
And as well as the barbecue facilities, and cooking appliances in the cottage, there are plenty of decent restaurants down in the town.
We will continue to return year after year. Such a wonderful place."

"Have just spent our third holiday at Casa Ferrobo. As we've come to expect, the cottage (Gemma) was spotless, has everything you need and felt like home from home.
The grounds are meticulously maintained and provide a lovely setting for spending time around the pool.
Jenny, Tom and Soraya make you very welcome and nothing is too much trouble.
There are numerous restaurants nearby that cater for most tastes - Indian, Chinese, Italian and of course Portugese."

"From the moment we arrived to a warm welcome from owner Jenny and her son Tom, we had everything we wanted from our holiday in the sun. Casa Ferrobo, with its bougainvillea covered cobbled lane between the owner's home and the six cottages, is a beautiful, peaceful place. The temperatures were in the mid 30s every day and we spent a lot of time in the swimming pool or reading on the sun loungers around the pool. The cottages are immaculately clean and comfortable and equipped with everything you need for self catering. Each cottage has a booklet of useful information about the surrounding villages, restaurants, walks, places of interest, etc. We hired a car for pick up from the airport but Casa Ferrobo can arrange this for you if you prefer.
The other guests who were there had all stayed multiple times which is a great recommendation. We can't wait to go back."

Another return to Casa Ferrobo left us tanned and relaxed after lounging by the pool in the gardens, sleeping in an air conditioned cottage and meeting friends made on previous visits. Jenny and Tom are always helpful but work in the background to make our stay perfect. The local town has plenty of restaurants and is just far enough away from the coast to allow you to visit anywhere along the algarve when you need. We love it here and recommend to everyone we speak to.

"This place is paradise. We had one of the best holidays of our lives here. As soon as you arrive, you are treated to a view of a 'street' of flowers- geraniums, hibiscus, bouganvillea. The pool is luxurious surrounded by the most lovely trees and gardens. The cottages are cool and gorgeous and yet authentically Portuguese. (We stayed in the gorgeous Casa Emma) They have every comfort - even books to read.
Jenny and Tom have given every attention to detail- from separate beach and bath towels, to cool boxes and sun- shades for the beach. We had cold wine in the fridge, waiting for us- and home made honey. There is even a beautiful gazebo to enjoy.
The sun shone every day- and we loved every minute. We were made so welcome, yet never intrusively. Jenny and Tom and his lovely partner are perfect hosts. The location is excellent, too.
We cannot recommend this Casa Ferrobo highly enough. We will be back."

"Nous avons passé une magnifique semaine au sein d'un merveilleux site regroupant quelques cottages de part et d'autre d'une petite ruelle pavée et fleurie semblable à celles de villages d'antan! La piscine est juste superbe, entourée par un jardin arboré d'une beauté éclatante et bordé par de majestueux palmiers. Jenny et Tom sont de merveilleux hôtes et malgré notre anglais approximatif nous avons pu apprécier leur accueil; leur disponibilité et leur discrétion. Nous savons d'ores et déjà où nous résiderons la prochaine fois que nous irons en Algarve!"

"Tutto, dai servizi ineccepibili, il giardino e la piscina meravigliosi, la nostra casa in stile portoghese, denominata Gemma!! Ovviamente la disponibilità è la cortesia di Tom e Jenny ( I proprietari Inglesi)! PS addirittura vicino alla piscina vi erano dei Barbecue attrezzatissimi con persino la carbonella e gli utensili vari a disposizione, ovviamente da noi utilizzati!!"
