This beautiful villa lies high on top of a ridge in private and secluded gardens, in peaceful & tranquil surroundings giving breathtaking views of the Monchique Mountains and the south coast. This location is for those wishing to relax in tranquillity in this typically little Portuguese village with nearby orange groves, olive trees and vineyards.

This very attractive property is light and spacious with double doors to three sides of the large 20ft square lounge which is fitted with a new 42” tv, internet access, double glazing, air conditioning and mosquito blinds in lounge and all three bedrooms.

The 50mtr frontage property is draped in Bougainvillea's and is situated behind electric gates with ample parking.

We have installed a new kitchen for 2014 being large and spacious and very well equipped, it lends itself conveniently to stepping out onto the shaded terrace with table and chairs for you to enjoy breakfast in complete privacy. There is also a bbq, sun loungers, parasols, pergola and various shaded areas giving exquisite views where ever you choose to dine.

Twenty minutes to Carvoeiro, Armacao and Senhora de Rocha some of the best beaches and restaurants along the Algarve displaying their fresh fish of the day, some of which fillet your fish at the table and offer an excellent choice of wines and many local Portuguese restaurants offering excellent 3 course meals for 8.50euros,

About Jean

Hi, we are Jean and John Davis, we bought this villa, new, in 2002, I guess we were smitten with the cute little Portuguese village. We often see the shepherd walking his sheep down the lane to graze, or the locals who live off the land and pick their olives in October. They grow their own oranges, pluck their chickens and bake their own bread, some still trot around on their donkeys, no jumping in the car to the local supermarket for a bottle of wine for them! (Yes, they grow the grapes too!) The Algarvians are friendly and have a relaxed attitude to visitors. Fishermen paint their boats in colours as bright as the spring flowers on the cliffs. Two donkey carts cause a ‘traffic jam’. At this pace of life even the most stressed businessman soon unwinds.

Jean purchased this villa in 2002

Why Jean chose Silves region

Our villa has two views, to the south you will see miles of the coast with the lights that romantically twinkle at night and to the north we have the Monchique mountains (the highest mountains in the Algarve) At night our palm trees make it a very pleasant place to sit and enjoy. Our villa is available all year round, the Algarve enjoys 300 days a year of sunshine even 70f in November. Our 10 x 5 mtr pool has heating if needed which is solely for the use of our clients. So, Come & Enjoy. See our special low season rates.

What makes this villa unique

Our location is ideal for those who want to totally relax and yet be near enough for the beach just 15 mins away. It is ideally situated for all your needs. We are often being told: why do we need to go out when we have all this here to enjoy.

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had have just returned from a really relaxing holiday at this gorgeous villa recently thanks to Jean and John.

This is the perfect setting for a holiday if you want to get away from it all.The region is set amongst citrus groves and olive and carob trees .

The setting is truly stunning with immaculate gardens , a very well cared for pool,by John and breathtaking views across to the distant hills.

The house is extremely clean and well cared for . There is plenty of room for 6 people .and all the mod cons exactly as described.The kitchen is like new and the bathrooms are very modern and clean.The wifi speed is better than our home !

Jean is obviously meticulous in making sure everything is up to scratch and comfortable.

She even left us a bottle of wine and some fresh figs.

Jean and John are available for any queries if needed but are not at all intrusive.

You must have a car when staying here.It is very easy to use the house as a base. We visited the West,Central and Eastern Algarve easily as the roads are so empty and spent the rest of the time relaxing in the gardens round the pool.

We would love to visit this area again and would definitely try and stay at this fantastic villa.

Thank you Jean and John.

Very clean with stunning peaceful views.

  • 5 of 5

Jean and John are the most respectful owners we have ever had the pleasure meeting, close by if you need assistance, but happy to let you enjoy the peaceful solitude of their lovely villa. Johns appearance every so often to maintain the pool was benefited by his personal friendly attitude and guide to good local restaurants

There were 4 of us staying at the villa but it can accommodate 6 with comfort.

Plenty of hot water and all the home comforts you need to make your stay enjoyable if you just want to spend the time at the villa. Local supermarkets only a few minutes away by car which is essential IMHO.

Having the pool heated was a bonus at this time of year and worth the additional expense.. The whole family were sad to leave and even two teenage boys were kept entertained with good quality wifi.

Would definitely return the next time we go to Portugal.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was lovely better than the photos, they don't do it justice, it was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. It had everything you need, for cooking and comfort. Jean and John were both lovely they were helpful, and gave us a lot of information, and recommended a lot of restaurant's to us they checked that all was ok with us and asked if we needed anything. We would recommend the villa to friends and family, the location was beautiful and it is easy to get anywhere from there. The weather for the last four days wasn't good but that's a chance you take in October.

Thank you Jean and John we hope we are able return and stay in the villa in the future, you were very helpful and provided a very good customer service. Brian and Christine

Wonderful spacious villa with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying at Jean and John's villa and we're already talking about going back in the future! I stayed there with my husband and 1 year old son, it was our first time in Portugal and staying in a villa, as we were travelling with a baby we found this a lot easier than staying in a hotel. The first thing I should mention is that the pictures on the website really don't do the beautiful view justice. It was so stunning and peaceful, there is a very big outside area with lots of beautiful flowers. We really enjoyed using the pool, reading in the lounge chairs and being able to eat outside in the evening (although on a few evenings it was too windy to do so). Although it's very quiet and private at the same time it's not too far away from lots of nice places to visit. While there we went to Sagres, Luz, Silves, Aljezur and Lagos the local shops are also not far away. I also enjoyed early morning walks in the local area with my son before it got too hot. The villa itself is very spacious and clean, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen has all the equipment and utensiles you need. We used the barbeque every evening to make dinner The wifi connection is is very fast. When my parents saw the view on facetime they also expressed an interest in booking a week at the villa. There is also a big TV with lots of English channels. All the communication before and after our stay was very friendly and prompt. Thank you again for a wonderful stay, we hope to be back soon!

A lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

I am sitting on the veranda on the last night of our stay, I am watching the sun go down and don't want to go home. This is a lovely villa and my wife and I and two teenage daughter have loved it.

The villa has been a home from home and I leave with batteries recharged. The one thing all of us have said is that the photos on the site don't do the villa justice!!! This place is not a typical sanitised rental, it has felt like a home to us

We have not "done" much just lazed around the house with occasional trips to local restaurants. The villa is spacious and clean, we have had enough space, breakfasts on one terrace then lazy days by the pool with another terrace and a summer house for shade if needed. During the time we have been here we have had a cooling wind most days making 30 degree heat bearable.

The kitchen has been fine and serviceable for days we ate in, my daughters are now addicted to figs!!.

We have rented villas most summers and have never returned to the same villa but we would be tempted here.

This is not the villa for you if you want a busy nightlife on the doorstep but if you want to relax and go with the flow in a home from home then I would recomend

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

A stunning villa in a beautiful, peaceful location. This was everything we had hoped for when we booked and we weren't disappointed! Far enough away to be quiet but not so far that getting around was a problem. Plenty of space for the children and we all loved the clean, well kept pool. A great size and not too deep for the little ones! The whole property was very well maintained and the owners were fantastic! On hand for any queries and couldn't have been more helpful. The kitchen was well equipped and furniture comfortable throughout. A DVD player would have been useful for the children when they needed some time out of the sun but we would definitely go again and would highly recommend this villa to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you, we are always pleased to hear that our guests have enjoyed the villa, I wanted to respond to your comment about the DVD for other guests, when we recently bought our new smart tv the DVD player became obsolete, our guests now download all their music, films, photos etc onto their memory stick & bring it with them, they can then just plug it into the side of the tv in one of the USB ports & play their favorite music & films through the tv. It does save packing all those CD’s & DVD’s. What would we do without technology! Take care & hope to see you all another time.
