Home description
This beautiful holiday villa is located in a tranquil location on a private hillside, just minutes away from the beautiful ancient town of Silves and offers a unique sense of luxury, built to a grand and elaborate scale.
The house is approached by a sweeping tree lined driveway, with a beautiful stone fountain under the trees. Inside the elegance continues, each room is decorated to a different style giving the feeling of a small boutique hotel.
This rustic portuguese villa has 5 huge bedrooms, 2 with en-suite bathroom, plus 2 newly-refurbished and fully tiled shower rooms finished to a very high standard. The house is furnished throughout with a superb selection of quality antique furniture, handed down through generations of the Portuguese owners’ family giving it a feeling of grandeur.
There is a large homely lounge with traditional leather sofa and armchairs, English Sky free to air TV and Portuguese TV, Air Conditioning and piano. From the lounge there is access directly outside to the pool area. As well as the main lounge there is a small lounging area nestled between bedrooms 4 and 5 furnished with wooden table and four chairs, with a stone chess board and patio doors to an attractive vestibule, planted and partially covered with canvas shades.
The dining room, with stunning wooden floor has a striking central fireplace of stone and brass, and is furnished with a large banquet table and chairs, large traditional dresser containing full dinner service, and benefits from a small 'snug' area at one end with comfy leather chairs. There are patio doors to the garden.

The light and airy kitchen breakfast room has beautiful hand-painted tiles, traditional fully fitted dark wood units, and dual aspect views over the garden and surrounding countryside. It is well equipped with gas oven, hob, double sink, and microwave. The adjoining utility room houses the fridge and freezer, as well as the washing machine, and conveniently a door leading to the garden and clothes line.

The huge individually decorated bedrooms are all beautifully furnished with wardrobes, bed side tables etc, and four of the five bedrooms have either en-suite or private bath or shower rooms, Air Conditioning and ceiling fans.

The Games room is a fantastic addition to this property, with a full size snooker table, multi-gym, comfy sofa, TV, a vast selection of reading books and even a drum kit - there will be something to keep everyone amused.

Air conditioning is available throughout the year at an additional cost of £160 per week. Please ask for details regarding heating during the Winter.

The large secluded south facing swimming pool gets the sun all day, and is surrounded by a large terrace, and fringed by mature hedging and trees. There are lots of sun loungers, and parasol for those who prefer the shade. Under the pagoda is the outdoor kitchen area with cooker, fridge/freezer and sink, along with the adjoining large stone table with benches, which offers a cool and tranquil space to dine alfresco. Next to the pool is a lawned area with built in BBQ.

Extensive mature gardens surround the property, and provide both sunny and shaded rest areas with seating, ideal for relaxing with your favourite novel, playing chess, or simply relaxing.

Additional guests will be charged at an additional £50 per person, per week (or part of week).

Baby equipment such Cot as High chair, and Stairgate are available on request for a small additional charge, please enquire.
Silves area
One of the most major Algarve Festivals is held in Silves, the Medieval Festival. This takes annually, for 10 days close to the beginning of August.

For family fun, Slide 'n' Splash water park at Lagoa, just 10 minutes drive away, or alternatively Aqualand at Alcantarilha, only 15 minutes drive away - both offer a full days fun for old and young alike. Another great day out is Zoomarine at Guia.

The Algarve Shopping Centre, again at Guia, offers a vast selection of shops and boutiques as well as a Hypermarket, and of course an enormous food hall with restaurants and fast food outlets. There is also a bowling alley, cinema and games arcade for those greyer days.

Further inland head towards Monchique and the picturesque village of Caldas de Monchique, which is famous for it's spa water. The winding journey to Monchique offers spectacular views to the sea, and is strewn with cafés and restaurants offering good
home cooked food at very reasonable prices.

Perfect, big, relaxing, comfortable. The house is wonderful, we were there with a big familly with kids and grandparents and we all enjoyed it. there is nothing bad I can say and we totally recommend the house. We will come back soon! APRIL 2017

The description of the accommodation was quite accurate: the villa is very spacious and the pool a delight for young and old." The villa is located away from the city of Silves... no neighbours except owners who live just next needed. Silves is a city full of charm. JULY 2016

Don't be put off by the slightly unflattering photographs which make this villa look very angular; it's certainly an unusual villa but the exterior masks a villa of rare quality, filled with authentic Portuguese features and a good deal of comfort. The swimming pool is large and and easily accessible, with steps in the shallow end and a 2 metre depth at the deep end, and stays in the sunshine for most of the day. There are so many rooms in this villa we felt a bit lost for the first day.
The garden is extensive and well kept; the outside of the villa is separated into the pool area and a barbecue / seating area, both with excellent lighting so evening dinners can carry on as late as you like. The owner lives nearby, but stays well out of the way unless you need help - apart from the owner next door the villa is at least a hundred yards from the next dwelling. There are two large tables outside which each can accommodate eight or more people eating, one by the pool (with a small outdoor kitchen with oven and freezer nearby) and one next to an effective concrete barbecue. The bedrooms are large and comfortable (although be aware the Portugese do like their mattresses pretty solid which can take some getting used to) and the air conditioning units are a godsend if the temperature rises. There are several bathrooms all of a high quality.
You will find the nearest town of Silves has all the facilities you could need. It's too far to walk, but just five minutes away in a car. Beaches on the Algarve are about a twenty minute drive away; we found some nice ones near Porches, not too busy. If you do stay here, don't miss out on a trip to Monchique - the views over the Algarve are astonishing. I can recommend a nearby restaurant "O Barrados" - a little way out into the country, five minutes drive in a car and food and service of the highest quality. The full size pool table in the games room is excellent, and the TV facilities are also very good for those older members of parties who like their English soaps! We were well looked after during our stay.
This is a spacious, peaceful, high quality villa well suited to family groups who like to make their own entertainment rather than spend time in nightclubs. We had a thoroughly good holiday here and recommend it very highly.


Dear Suzie, We are back home to reality. We had a lovely week and the villa was gorgeous. We didn’t go out to many restaurants, mainly had BBQ’s, lovely villa to relax in.
We are hoping to persuade Dad to have a week away so may be in touch again soon - Cheryl

It is a beautiful House, atmospheric, but the bed of the master bedroom is a bit hard! The house has a lovely outdoor kitchen, but the outdoor refrigerator is not working properly and the outdoor kitchen is not clean. Everything was excellent and I would definitely recommend it to family and friends. We had very happy holidays in this very nice large and spacious House(perhaps we come next spring with friends). Best regards Dorine.

Property Map
The Algarve region


The historic town of Silves is approx. 5 minutes driving distance by car, with it's cobbled shopping streets, traditional market and superb restaurants and cafés. It is most famous for its 12th century Silves Castle and nearby cathedral, and 13th century "Ponte Romana" or Roman Bridge across the river Arade.

The Silves area is away from the hustle and bustle of the coastal towns, but close enough for you to have the best of both worlds.
