Located on the southwest coast of the Algarve in the unspoiled region of Costa Vicentina is Pedralva, the forgotten village of the Algarve. This once thriving agricultural village, was mostly abandoned in the 1980’s (9 inhabitants remained) - leaving a pile of destitute buildings. In 2006, António Ferreira and his partners purchased 30 ruins and began to gradually rebuild the village with the aim of providing an authentic holiday experience. In 2010 the project was complete and 24 traditional houses, with one, two or three-bedroom houses opened their doors to welcome guests, each comfortably furnished and well-equipped.
