Ferreiras is a small village 5 km north of Albufeira and is ideal for those who wish to live within the Portuguese community, but at the same time, within easy reach of Albufeira Centre. Ferreiras train station in 5min walk, perfect to discover Algarve by train.
The Old Town and ´The Strip` are approx. 5 minutes by car, local taxi (cheap) or by the Giro (City Bus). Local shops, restaurants (much cheaper eating locally), bars, cafés, large supermarket, local butchers, bakeries, local Regional (daily) and Municipal Markets (twice monthly), banks, chemist, filling station, children’s park etc. are all within easy walking distance of the apartment.
This up and coming suburb of Albufeira is now becoming a favourite for foreigners who wish to reside or buy a second home abroad, as well as the Portuguese themselves who want to live away from the hustle & bustle of Albufeira Centre.
The whole village has a great feel to it and is centrally located to explore, by car or by train, the whole of Algarve from the Spanish/Portuguese border (Vile Real San Antonio) to Cape St. Vincent (the most south westerly point in Europe).
The Albufeira train station, which is actually located in Ferreiras, is within 5 minutes from our houses. You can also take the Alfa High Speed train to the city of Lisboin (takes approx. 2 1/2 hours). You can actually take the early morning train and return the same evening.
