Location Advantage of Castaway
Castaway is located in Ferrel. Actually, it is just next to the boardwalk linking Ferrel and Baleal Island.
There is a self service laundry nearby and in a few minutes walking distance you have an ATM, pharmacy, mini markets and bakeries. There are as well many restaurants, covering different types of cuisines including fish, sushi, pizza, gourmet hamburger, BBQs, sandwiches and a typical Steak house.
We recommend Cantina de Ferrel. The restaurant is right next to the guesthouse. They serve delicious Mediterranean food here - YUMMY!
Ferrel is a small town and a hotspot for surfers in search of the challenge of the Atlantic waves.
From here you can access excellent beaches and surf spots that are part of the WSL – World Surf League (Supertubos and Pico da Mota), the Berlengas nature reserve, beach bars, restaurants and local businesses to dive into Portuguese culture.
From an economic point of view, Castaway is part of a local association of hostels which promotes a healthy competition, supporting the local economy, thus offering advantageous conditions to the guests.
As a guest, you may not notice this detail at first glance, however, this is something important to consider for the long-term economic development of the area.
2. A wooden shelter
Due to the proximity to the sea, the design of the hostel was inspired by the following question:
If I were a castaway, what would my shelter be like?
Pedro, the owner of Castaway kept asking himself this.
A castaway would no doubt have to take advantage of wooden wreckage and export crates, which inspired the creation of the lockers and the sofa in the living room. There is a brass boat porthole in the wooden front door.
The ceilings are made with varnished wooden slats with four different tones, randomly arranged to match the style, and the floor is solid wood in its natural color.
Wooden decking was laid in the exterior spaces, matching the style of the interior of the house.
Here you can get a 35€ discount for your first AirBnb-Experience.
