Things to do

de Silves:

The Castelo de Silves offers up great views of the town and countryside. This unique castle with sandstone walls was fully restored in the 1940s. The Moorish well and a rose-coloured water cistern were constructed in the late-12th century. Castelo de Silves was abandoned in the 16th century but is today a popular tourist site.

Museu Municipal de Arqueologia:

Museu Municipal de Arqueologia is a fascinating museum with Roman and Moorish artefacts. The centre of the museum houses an original 14-foot-wide, 60-foot-deep Moorish well, surrounded by a spiral staircase. One wall of the museum is made of glass to showcase a section of the original fort wall.

Sé de Silves:

Next door to the Castelo de Silves is the Cathedral, or Sé, of Silves. Original construction began in the 13th century, but most of that structure was destroyed in an earthquake in the 14th century. Today it is an example of Gothic and Baroque styles.

Wine tasting:

Portugal is quickly gaining a reputation for fine wines, and some of the finest come from the Silves region. The AdegaAdega Cooperativa de Lagoa offers visitors the chance to tour vineyards and sample some of the region's wines.

Torreão da Porta da Cidade:

The Turret of the City Gate is the last of the original four gates to the ancient city that still remains. Dating back to the 12th or 13th century, visitors can enter the tower via an external stairway and enjoy views from the high walkway.

Cruz de Portugal:

The impressive Cross of Portugal is a nine-foot-tall structure made of limestone. It is located en route to the castle, near the eastern end of the riverfront. It was here that the kingdom of Portugal historically had its border. The cross is believed to date back to the late-15th century.

Weather in the Silves region

The weather in the Silves region is typical for Portugal, with warm to moderately hot summers of little rain and mild, relatively wet winters. July and August are the hottest months with an average temperature of 28°C. There is little to no rain in the summer months; March is usually the wettest.

Travel to Silves

The town of Silves is located about 37 miles from Faro International Airport (FAO), and flights to Faro International Airport are available from most major cities in Europe. Buses and trains depart from Faro and can get travellers to Silves, though transferring may be necessary. Hiring a car or taking a taxi are perhaps the fastest and easiest ways to reach the region. The drive is straightforward and scenic.

The photos don't do it justice!

5 of 5
We had a wonderful, relaxing week at Casa do Campo. The house is a few minutes from the town of Silves, a quiet valley village, and about 20 mins from the nearest (and stunning) beach. It's a perfect home base for exploring the Algarve and after checking out the entire region and it's vast differences, we were so glad that we were staying in Silves. It is "away from it all" and yet so close. But, more importantly for us, a family of four, the house was incredibly comfortable. It's well-equipped and the recent restoration to the house is gorgeous. There is a lovely outdoor living area as well, though it was too cold in February to eat outdoors. You can see how many considered choices were made in the design and decor-- Nelson and Lena did a fabulous job and the photos on the listing do not do this home justice!!! The pool is small but I imagine the perfect place to cool off when it's hot in the summer. The gardens are so lovely and our kids absolutely loved checking for eggs in the chicken coop every day. We were also welcomed to pick vegetables and fruit (the best fresh squeezed orange juice ever) from the garden. Surrounding the house are vineyards and more orange groves. We saw one neighbor the entire week (their is plenty of space between neighboring houses). It was such a quiet, restful and relaxing week! I will absolutely miss sitting in the hammock each morning enjoying the morning sun, soaking in the view of the rolling valley and vineyards. Nelson met us on the first day and left a lovely welcome gift of cheese, bread, wine. And, of course, fresh eggs from the chickens! Nelson checked on us once more during the week and is such a gentle and kind host. Sonia, their daughter, was available quickly via email every step of the way and was so generous with her kindness as well. They offer several suggestions of what to do and where to eat and we can confirm that the simple chicken restaurant next to the veg market in Silves is delicious. If you're looking to be away from the tourist scene and have a more authentic Algarve experience, this home is a wonderful choice. I would absolutely stay here again and have already recommended this home to friends.

Good with a wonderful Balcony which catches the sun all day.

4 of 5
Centrally located in Armacao De Pera, an excellent location.. The apartment is on the sixth floor (two lifts available) with a secure double lock. The apartment was clean and fully equipped. Lovely balcony over looking the old fort and beach. One double bedroom and one twin bedroom. Both bedrooms have access to the balcony via sliding doors. Comfortable double bed but the bedroom itself is a little cramped. Very nice bathroom with bidet. The shower is a bath attachment which works fine but could do with updating. Neither of the bedside lights worked. Probably just requiring a bulb replacement but we were unable to find a shop in the town that sold that size bulb. TV has plenty of channels but no BBC1 BBC2 and ITV. Mostly Portuguese or US stations although their was Sky News and BBC World News. DVD's available but mainly the works of Stanley Kubrick if you wanted English language DVD's.
