This is a charming little cottage on a small hill near Silves, in a little remote location to enjoy quietness, but not too far too be able to visit all the beautiful beaches and sites of Algarve. You will enjoy the nice little town of Silves with its castle, little restaurants avoiding the crowds of Lagos or Portimao. Drives to beaches are never very long, as the scenery is beautiful.
The house is clean and very well equipped, and we enjoyed every single day we stayed there with our 3 children. The swimming pool is a blessing, especially on very hot days of July.
Dick, the owner is very helpful and makes sure you are spending a wonderful time in his house. The manager is only a few minutes away if one needs any help.
We are definitely looking forward to go back to this charming place.
Beautiful traditional villa set in lovely mature tropical gardens, which have been designed to provide a perfect balance for sun bathing and shade for the hotter days. Between the villa & garden is a lovely salt swimming pool, with good quality and substantial outside furniture. The large private terraces provide gorgeous views of a wooded valley with old farm houses scattered around and hills in the distance, which can be explored on foot.
Inside the villa is equipped with a beautiful mixture of antique and modern furniture. The kitchen has retained its Portuguese style which creates a rustic charm.
The annex provided a lovely independent space for parents to relax.
The outside kitchen/dining area with sink, BBQ and fridge was outstanding and used every day.
The owner was exceptionally helpful from the first email and his local manager Mike, was also very helpful, whom we are indebted to.
This house was far beyond expectations. It’s sure not a regular holiday home with average furniture, like plastic chairs and cheap equipment. Beautiful tiles, antique and traditional Portuguese elements. Well chosen furniture inside as well on the terraces in the huge garden. We fell in love with this property! We felt very happy staying on the marvellous country site in this part of the Algarve.
The location is outstanding: very quiet, 100 % privacy with astonishing views on a abandoned , terraced valley. We spend a lot of time on the terraces around the house and pool, no need searching for touristic highlights...we already found our place to be. Didn’t know the Algarvian coast, but found the most beautiful beaches ever met in Europe. Just take a ride down south of 20 minutes and you will find your own private bay at the cliffy coast between Armacao and Benagil. Don’t hesitate : we’re pretty sure you will enjoy your stay at this splendid place.
We were advised about this house by friends, they spend their holiday there last year. They showed us some lovely pictures and we had a look on the web site. Seemed to be a good choice.
Arriving there 2 weeks ago we were impressed: house , garden and location were even better than we expected. Interesting amount of fruittrees and peppers. The son of the owner makes his on spicy salsa apparently. We enjoyed the quietness, privacy and marvelous atmosphere. The house is well
equipped and is beautifully furnished. Terraces and garden are outstanding, with lovely views to the valley below. Excellent price /quality rate. Strongly recommended.
Wir hatten mit unseren drei Kids (8-13) einen traumhaften Urlaub an der Algarve. Da das Wetter immer schön ist, lag das entscheidend an dem herrlichen Ferienhaus. Geschmackvoll eingerichtet, viel Platz- wir waren von der ersten Minute begeistert. Die wenigen Nachbarhäuser hat man nicht bemerkt; die Kinder waren aus dem guten Pool kaum raus zu bekommen, sodass unsere Strand- und Stadtausflüge (meist in 15-25 Minuten zu erreichen) meist erst Nachmittags begannen. Auf dem großen Grundstück und Dank der zwei Häuser gibt es viele Rückzugsgebiete und Sitzmöglichkeiten. Den Blick aus der Hängematte (es gab mehrere) in die hügelige Ferne war grandios. Und es war so herrlich ruhig!
Der Kontakt zu Dick dem Vermieter vor der Buchung (wir hatten einen kleinen Sonderwunsch), während dessen und danach war ausgesprochen angenehm.
Wir kommen mit Sicherheit noch einmal wieder und hoffen, dass Dick und Josepha bis dahin nicht ganzjährig dort wohnen, was wir gut verstehen könnten.
We (parents, 3 children, 12, 10 and 8 years) spent one week in August in this house and had the best time! The house has a very special atmosphere: the architecture, the furniture, and the way the house connects to its surroundings. We liked the kitchen, the annex, the grill area, the great pool (with pleasant salt water and very surprising lights in it), and the luscious garden. The house owner, manager, and keeper are very nice people and helped us out with tips and questions that we had. The Algarve is easy to negotiate: Silves, Portimao, Lagos, the beaches, and the Ocean are all nearby and very much worth exploring. We had a wonderful time and plan to come back for sure.
The villa is situated in the central part of the Algarve. It's location is very quiet and 100 % private, just outside the rumours of mass tourisme. The most beautiful Algarve beaches are very close.( 10 kms)
In the rural enviroment one can walk and bike directly starting at the house.
Golf courses: 3/5 kms.
