Really quiet and peacefull.Right from the house you can start walks in all directions between olives, cork oaks, oranges and almond trees.

Little paradise to visit south-west of Portugal

  • 5 of 5

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.

Outstanding property in tranquil settings.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Marvellous place , a green oasis of peace

  • 5 of 5

We spend a lovely holiday at this beautiful place. Charming, tastefully decorated house with many typical Portuguese accents. The outside couldn’t be better. Big terraces with lovely, mature tropical vegetation. The enormous garden guarantees privacy, but still is very intimate. The property is surrounded by wild orchards, only a few white houses at big distances.

We are very happy finding this place. Returning to the Algarve, we surely will try to rent this house again.

Ferienoase an der Algarve!

  • 5 of 5

Auch mitten in der Hochsaison ist diese Ferienvilla eine Oase der Ruhe und Geborgenheit. Durch den Garten, Pool, Sitzplätze, Liegen..... fühlt man sich hervorragend.

Trotzdem ist man innerhalb 20 Minuten am Meer und den wichtigsten Hotspots der Gegend. Auch der freundliche Kontakt mit dem Vermieter und der Unterhalt trägt zur Zufriedenheit bei.

Also da können sie blind buchen! Nochmals vielen Dank Dick!

Authentiek paradijsje in Silves

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben tijdens de eerste 2 weken van juli 2017 verbleven in CPM en waren vanaf het eerste moment verliefd op deze mooie en rustige plek. Wij verbleven er met 5 (ouders+3 kids) en hadden alle ruimte die we nodig hadden. Het huis is volledig uitgerust met alles wat je nodig kan hebben en heel ruim. Onze zoon sliep in de annex en genoot van zijn eigen plekje. Het zwembad is zeer proper en wat voor ons toch belangrijk was heel erg ruim. Buiten het authentieke huis en het zwembad is ook de tuin heel mooi aangelegd. Het uitzicht is enorm mooi. Silves, stadjes, waterpretparken, stranden zijn op een boogscheut te vinden. Woorden schieten eigenlijk te kort om deze plek te beschrijven. Wij hadden een topvakantie en hopen hier zeker terug te keren. Bedankt Dick en Josepha voor de informatie en het terbeschikking stellen van zulk een mooie parel. met vriendelijke groeten, Patrick
