About Martin Silva

I live in Canada with my wife Serilia, but we spend the summers in Portugal taking care of this wonderful property that her parents built and we renovated. I do some of the gardening. She does some of the decorating, and helps people try portuguese recipies. We both answer all questions about the area and help the guests in their search to discover the Algarve, all the way to Spain (40 minutes away).

Why Martin Silva chose Olhao region

This area of the Algarve is close to Spain, more agricultural. The Villa is surrounded by an orange grove of 7,000 trees. When in season, unlimited orange juice to be had!

What makes this house unique

Very quiet area of the Algarve. The site is away from the main road, totally secluded but with an amazing view of the mountain and the sea.

What a fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa Peixe Rei for number of days together with two close Portuguese friends. We cannot speak highly enough of the villa. It is very spacious, comfortable, extremely clean, and had everything we could possibly have needed including an excellent BBQ area and a nicely located hammock where one could take a lazy summer nap. The views of the surrounding village of Quelfes and of the orange orchards from the balcony and from the pool area make the villa very exceptional and an excellent choice.

The villa is very close to Olhao (the market there is an excellent place for fresh fish, meat, and vegetables) and to Spain – Ayamonte, which is a town and municipality located in the province of Huelva. There we had the best Paella so far!

It was indeed a stay that we will not forget and certainly we will return back on our first opportunity. Our two daughters really loved the place and the pool. The cats and the friendly dogs provided that extra excitement which made the stay a relaxing holiday and a memorable one.

The hospitality provided by the hosts Martin and Serilia, Maria and Luis certainly exceeded our expectations. They were very generous in providing us with a constant supply of freshly picked figs, tangerines, and oranges from their oranges groves situated next to the villa.

We really enjoyed our stay and would strongly recommend the villa.

We spent the month of April in the smaller Villa Pavoes. The villa is very clean and very well equipped. The pool was great and got warmer the further we got into the month. As to location, well it was just perfect. Very rural but still close to Olhao. To come outside first thing in the morning to the smell of orange blossom was amazing. It was lovely to be able to pick a few fresh oranges each morning and they were the best we’ve tasted.

We were made to feel so welcome by Maria, Luis, Martin and Serilia. They offer very good advice on where to go and what to do and are always available to help with any issues.

A visit to Olhao market (every morning apart from Sundays) is a must. The fish and vegetables couldn’t be any fresher.

We would recommend the villa to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in beautiful, traditional surroundings. A car is definitely beneficial to enjoy the area.

A month of golf in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a month at Quinta de Pixie Rei in Quelfes,just outside Olhao.We enjoyed our stay very much.The property is very nice surrounded by gorgeous citrus groves with the sweetest oranges and tangerines we have ever tasted. We shared the spacious apartment with another couple and we had lots of room.The pool area is particularly inviting and even in the heat of the day shade is provided by a mature mulberry tree. The two men were here to golf and found the course at Benamor Golf in Tavista a very pleasant course and quite convenient.The family were gracious hosts and were most helpful.We would recommend this property to others a car or two are essential unless you are here to relax at the villa and swim and read then the local bus would probably be adequate.

We had the pleasure of staying here for five weeks . Enjoyed every minute of it. It was like staying with your favourite relatives. Maria and Louis were wonderful hosts always making sure we were comfortable and had a supply of oranges, grapefruit and lemons from their orchard on hand. It was very centrally located to both East and West end of the Algarve. It was our first trip to the Algarve and what an introduction. It was also the coolest winter on record and we still managed to enjoy every minute. We would go back in a heatbeat!

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home to Toronto after spending a month in this villa that is located in an orange orchard. The location encompasses the best of both worlds. You feel like you are in the country but are just a few minutes from an ocean town with plenty of restaurants and things to do.(Like a short ferry ride to small sun filled islands) We stayed with another couple and enjoyed the spaciousness of the apartment. It was clean and roomy with all the furnishings and utensils that one needs. Every morning we drank freshly squeezed orange juice from oranges delivered by our hosts. Martin and Serilia are wonderful knowledgeable hosts who can help guide you to many interesting cities and towns in the Algarve. We highly recommend this villa for anyone who likes to relax in modern comforts,swim in the pool and use the villa as a base to explore nearby attractions.

Very memorable holiday...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Quinta de Peixe Rei for 6 weeks with another couple. It is exactly as you see. Suited our every need, the views were incredible. One thing you cannot see is how comfortable this Villa was, or the scent of orange blossoms that greeted us every morning. We explored many of the small towns of the Algarve, but we always felt, at the end of the day when we were sitting in the living room, or at the kitchen table, that "...we were home". We felt this was our home while we were there. Our hosts Martin and Serilia, Maria and Luis, were wonderful, their knowledge of the area, the history of Portugal and their hospitality were well above our expectations. It was one of our most memorable and enjoyable holidays.
