Elegant and Luxurious Villa in Silves
Silves, Algarve, Portugal
Additional Location Information
Located in a tranquil location on a private Algarve hillside, this stunning villa with private gardens and pool is just minutes away from the beautiful ancient town of Silves with it's ancient red stone castle, cathedral and architecture steeped in history, as well as an array of restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets. You can wander the quaint cobbled streets, visit the market and try one of the many cafés, bars or restaurants. If you travel a little further out of town, in many local villages a three course meal with wine can be bought for around 10 euros!
Silves also benefits from a fabulous public indoor heated swimming pool with gymnasium, sauna and various excercise and aerobic classes.
Slightly further afield is the Monchique mountain, the highest point in the Algarve, with fantastic views and traditional restaurants.
The nearest beaches are Armação de Pera or Carvoeiro which are just 10 to 15 mins by car, with hundreds of other Algarve beaches all very close. This particular stretch of coastline is dramatically beautiful, certainly the best in the Algarve and contains probably the best clifftop walks to be had anywhere in the world, perfect for those who enjoy walking, hiking or rambling.
There are a selection of golf courses nearby, including the Silves Pestana course, and the famous Amendoeira Golf course which is the largest in Europe, with bowling and fitness centre among it's many facilities.
Other nearby golf courses include the Pestana and Gramacho courses at Lagoa, and Morgado set in the Monchique mountain.
Two big water parks ,Slide & Splash and Aqualand are within 15 minutes drive and Zoomarine for the whole family is 20 minutes drive. Algarve Shopping Centre at Guia, just 25 minutes drive away offers great High Street shops,cinemas and restaurants.
For the more adventurous the villa is ideally located for horse riding, cycling, golf, tennis or walking. Babysitting service is available upon request.
Faro airport is 35 mins east by car, and in our opinion car hire is essential, although Silves Gare station is just 1km away where you can catch a train to anywhere in the Algarve. The nearest towns after Silves are 4km to Lagoa, and 10km to Carvoeiro.
