Good, very quiet location, close to the strip but not that close to the old town.
Small SPAR supermarket in walking distance (less than 5'), bigger super markets reachable by car within 5 min.

We did not require any airport transfer assistance because we rented 2 cars, one of them could be parked beside the villa, the other one in 100 m distance. Please note that the entrance gate to the property is quite narrow and it's tricky to drive in and out. There wouldn't be enough space to park a bigger car for 6-8 people.

The pool is as shown on the pictures, good size and very clean. Unfortunately after one day one water jet seemed to draw in air and made strange noises constantly (sounding like croaking frogs). The pool cleaner who showed up once during the week did not fix anything.
The sunloungers are not new but quite comfortable, we had 10 loungers for 7 people. Outside dining beside the pool is quite attractive, unfortunately we had only 6 chairs for 7 people, we never received the 7th missing one (we took one from the inside, - not that comfortable but ok).
The barbecue was great, we used it several times (bring coal with you!). The garden area in general is well cared, cosy and offers privacy.

The rooms are ok to sleep but not very pretty. The room partitioning is not ideal, one room goes directly to the living room, another one is separated from everything else and lies directly beside the entrance door. The beds were ok.
One en-suite bathroom had a very bad smell for several days and in the shared "main" bathroom the water in the shower did not drain off from the first day on. Some toilet seats are in very poor condition and need to be replaced urgently!

The kitchen and equipment were good, there was only one set of dishes but that's sufficient for a holiday accomodation, consequently we started the washing machine at least once a day.

You have to bring dish washing detergent, detergents in general, toilet paper, soap and waste bags, barbecue coal, spices for cooking etc. with you, there's nothing available in the villa (every week people renting the villa have to buy their own dish-washing detergents and soaps, this definitely could be improved).

Wifi connection was good and stable but had to be paid extra (15 euros/ week).

One last remark regarding check-in and check-out: although we had confirmed our arrival time in advance at the clickstay account and asked for a check-in at 2pm nobody was at the villa at the fixed time. You must call before arriving, no matter what information you entered.
We arranged a check-out at Friday evening with Miguel because we had an early flight on Saturday morning, unfortunately he didn't show up on Friday so we left in the morning without having met him again.

We were a group of 7 girls (age 30) renting the Villa Silva for 1 week in early September 2016.

Family from Lancaster, United Kingdom May 2015

Excellent location for our holiday. Close to a supermarket. Near the strip, but very quiet area. Villa very clean and kitchen well equipped. Heated pool was fantastic for the children. Made use of the BBQ twice. Front door was at the rear which made it feel very safe and secure. Also key safe at the gate, great for a large party if coming home at different times. The only fault was the step down from the kitchen to the outside was quite a big drop for the children and partner who had just had bilateral knee replacements. We just had to be more careful. Miguel and management were brilliant, good communication and organising of airport taxis. Thank you for a most memorable family holiday. Can highly recommend this villa.

Friends from Carlisle, United Kingdom Jun 2014

This is the first time i have used the site and since making my booking i can not recommend it enough! the owner Parick is absolutely fantasic at writing back with any queries i had and even sorted out the transfers for us. there was 8 of us and the villa was spacious, clean and well maintained.

When we arrived the grill was missing from the BBQ and as soon as we pointed this out to Jimmy he was back within 15minutes with it! absolutely amazing service!

the villa exceeded my expectations and if i went away as a group again i would consider a villa my first choice and in particular one from this owner!

the pool was cleaned every morning before everyone was up and about and always friendly and willing to help! a fantastice set up with the sun all day beaming on the pool and sunloungers! there was still shade for those that wanted it though. the 2 ensuites and main bathroom were more than adequate for our needs!

this villa has our highest possible recommendation!!

From Stockton, United Kingdom Jul 2013

Positives first. Jul 20-Aug 03 2013
We booked via Villarenters and we communicated via their email system with the owner Patrick, both were extremely professional.
The location is fab, 5 minutes walk to the lively strip, but far enough away to avoid the noise and a 15 minute walk to the old town, so perfect for the best of both worlds. Large supermarkets are close by and fairly cheap, its a €35 taxi transfer to/from the airport and around €20 to the nearest water park.
The villa itself is exactly as the photos, we had 6 adults and two teenagers in our party and it was fine.
The pool, beds, BBQ are fabulous. Jimmy provided a table tennis table on request, again first class and a pool table sits in the front garden, its weathered but after a few beers you can laugh at the total unpredictability of the balls.
We were met at the villa by Jimmy, a helpful Irish guy, and given the details of Miguel, both couldnt have been any more helpful, the smallest of issues were prioritised and dealt with promptly. Air con in all the rooms and very good,
Negatives and I am being a little picky, the beds are hard, really hard and we all had one tiny pillow each, I was glad to be home to my own bed! The en suites and bathrooms were tired and the showers would leak on the floor, you had to utilise a hand towel on the floor just to soak up the excess. The dish washer is old and really doesnt wash, I hand washed the dishes when Im emptied it, it ideally needs to be replaced. The kitchen is ok, the wine glasses and the tumblers are the cheap small versions, a few extra pounds could be spent to improve the quality.
A kitchen unit panel was not hung properly and the entire villa could do with a professional clean, not that the cockroaches would agree and there were lots...
The pool was fabulous for the first 12 days then a layer of debris appeared on the surface, Miguel did attend and start the pump going again but presumably the filters werent working as it didnt clear, so apologies to the family who took over from us, but we did try.
Would I go back? I would but only if it was cleaned and upgraded. It has the potential to be a 4/5 star villa, but is presently a 3.


From Cirencester

The villa is absolutely lovely and the staff over there are really helpful and friendly. I would recommend the villa to anyone- the location is perfect as everything truly is within walking distance. The villa lived up to all our expectations- especially the pool which is a good size. Id be more than willing to go again and again and again. Absolutely fantastic holiday :)


From Ashbourne

My friends and I have just returned from our stay at Villa Silva in Albufeira. It was just heavenly. Exceeded all our expectations. The villa itself was pure luxury and lived up to all that was advertised. The decor in all the rooms is beautiful and the whole place was spotless. It has all ameneties, washing machine, dishwasher, bbq, so many towels, etc. The heated pool was great, even though the weather was really hot. The location of the villa is superb, everything on our doorstep. We were able to walk everywhere. Never needed to get a taxi, even to and from the old town as Villa Silva is located between both. Cant wait to go back there in 2013.

“Perfect for our requirements” Reviewed September 18, 2013 NEW We stayed here for a low-key long Hen weekend and it couldnt have been better for what we needed. We had a mix of drinkers and non-drinkers, being within walking distance of the strip was perfect for the main Hen-night out so people could easily go home when they wanted. It was in a quiet enough area so that when we were in the villa there was no noise or disruption from fellow holidayers. The pool area was big enough for 8 sunbathing girls and the pool itself was spotlessly clean. Decoration is simple, but the villa was also very clean and the beds were comfy. Patrick was incredibly helpful, arranging taxis (very good value - 45 euro for all 8 of us from Faro Airport) and after providing a shopping list prior to arriving, all our groceries were waiting for us. We landed at 11.10am and were by the pool with a glass of champagne by 12.30pm - we couldnt have asked for more, it made for a perfect Hen-do - thank you!

Great villa and a great price” We booked through Columbia Estates and everything was really easy - we got the villa and transfers to and from the airport at a great price. Once we got there, the property manager Jimmy was extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The pool area is excellent with a good sized pool, BBQ and plenty of seating for ten people. Its also very private and gets the sun all day. The villa itself is situated just right around the corner from The Strip which means plenty of bars, restaurants and supermarkets are within walking distance. There is a beach at the bottom of the strip, also within walking distance. The street where the villa resides also has a stop for the small train which makes getting to and from Old Town extremely easy. Old Town itself is very nice and theres a great big beach with lots of bars and restaurants around overlooking it. Theres also an elevator at the end of the beach up to a big viewing platform with an excellent view. There are also lots of activities, tours etc to do. We signed up for a six hour boat trip where we would sail along then coast the stop at a private beach to snorkel followed by a BBQ but unfortunately due to bad weather it called of. This was a great villa and wed definitely go back.
