“La description du logement était tout à fait exacte : la villa est très spacieuse et la piscine un ravissement pour petits et grands. La villa est située à l'écart de la ville de Silves ... pas de voisin hormis les propriétaires qui habitent juste à côté en cas de besoin. Silves est une ville pleine de charme. ” "The description of the accommodation was quite accurate: the villa is very spacious and the pool a delight for young and old." The villa is located away from the city of Silves... no neighbours except owners who live just next needed. Silves is a city full of charm. ”

It is a beautiful House, atmospheric, but the bed of the master bedroom is a bit hard! The house has a lovely outdoor kitchen, but the outdoor refrigerator is not working properly and the outdoor kitchen is not clean. Everything was excellent and I would definitely recommend it to family and friends. We had very happy holidays in this very nice large and spacious House. (perhaps we come next spring with friends!) best regards Dorine.

Dear Suzie, We are back home to reality. We had a lovely week and the villa was gorgeous. We didn’t go out to many restaurants, mainly had BBQ’s, lovely villa to relax in. We are hoping to persuade Dad to have a week away so may be in touch again soon - Cheryl

Dont be put off by the slightly unflattering photographs which make this villa look very angular its certainly an unusual villa but the exterior masks a villa of rare quality, filled with authentic Portugese features and a good deal of comfort. The swimming pool is large and and easily accessible, with steps in the shallow end and a 2 metre depth at the deep end, and stays in the sunshine for most of the day. There are so many rooms in this villa we felt a bit lost for the first day. The garden is extensive and well kept the outside of the villa is separated into the pool area and a barbecue / seating area, both with excellent lighting so evening dinners can carry on as late as you like. The owner lives nearby, but stays well out of the way unless you need help - apart from the owner next door the villa is at least a hundred yards from the next dwelling. There are two large tables outside which each can accommodate eight or more people eating, one by the pool (with a small outdoor kitchen with oven and freezer nearby) and one next to an effective concrete barbecue. The bedrooms are large and comfortable (although be aware the Portugese do like their mattresses pretty solid which can take some getting used to) and the air conditioning units are a godsend if the temperature rises. There are several bathrooms all of a high quality. You will find the nearest town of Silves has all the facilities you could need. Its too far to walk, but just five minutes away in a car. Beaches on the Algarve are about a twenty minute drive away we found some nice ones near Porches, not too busy. If you do stay here, dont miss out on a trip to Monchique - the views over the Algarve are astonishing. I can recommend a nearby restaurant "O Barrados" - a little way out into the country, five minutes drive in a car and food and service of the highest quality. The full size pool table in the games room is excellent, and the TV facilities are also very good for those older members of parties who like their English soaps! We were well looked after during our stay. This is a spacious, peaceful, high quality villa well suited to family groups who like to make their own entertainment rather than spend time in nightclubs. We had a thoroughly good holiday here and recommend it very highly.
