About the property

Luxury villa overlooking Silves Gare, 10 Mins from Carvoeiro, gated heated pool, ping pong, pool table, basketball, goal, plus lots more, all private and exclusive.

Our villa is perfect for families of all ages, very private, safe and luxurious set in the heart of the Algarve, read all our reviews to get an insight and to see if it suits your party, if it does email us and we will put together a package to make your holiday really wonderful. The main pool can be heated and set to your perfect swimming temperature which makes holidays any time of year extra special.

The pools have discreet safety gates to protect toddlers and young children that are non swimmers, the added bonus is that there is a 25 metre garden area from the villa giving the extra protection of distance. The pool can be floodlit plus lighting throughout the beautiful gardens making evenings particularly spectacular, what could be better than to cook a fantastic meal on a huge charcoal BBQ with your own food and drink, then enjoy on a covered patio, after which those that are energetic can play ping pong or a game on the pool table or while away the evening under the stars playing cards or board games or chill in the summerhouse and just chat or play music as loud as you like, there are no other holidaymakers to upset (nor are there any to annoy you), then drift off to sleep in a King Size bedroom air conditioned to perfection.

During the day Basketball, Football, Boules, Badminton, Rifle shooting (air gun) etc re all available and all free and exclusively for you, note; the rifle shooting is in a separate area within our two and a half acre boundaries but away from the main groomed garden and must be supervised by a responsible adult after a brief induction, for safety reasons the rifle not stored within the villa.

Seating is in different areas throughout the garden complemented by a new poolside bar which is unstaffed and solely for your use, a relaxing glass of whatever takes your fancy and a midnight dip in the warm water sometimes becomes irresistible!

On arrival day a fabulous welcome pack greets all our guests and ensures you do not go to bed hungry or thirsty after a hard day travelling. A fully prepared BBQ ready for you to cook with charcoal laid under a scrupulously clean griddle is available as an optional extra, we give you a choice of quality food with succulent prime meat for main course served with beer or soft drinks plus pre select your preferred wine type, starter and dessert included, details on request.

We live nearby at the gatehouse and cannot oversee nor overhear any of your private area and never interfere except for essential cleaning and maintenance at regular timed intervals but we are on hand in case of breakdowns or you run out of something essential or maybe you need advice about best eateries for example, there are no uncaring agents to deal with, occasionally things go wrong we deal with them immediately.

The historic city of Silves is beautiful, once the capital of the Algarve a separate state to Portugal, the city is dominated by its castle, wander the cobbled streets, visit the market and try one of the many bars and cafes, here you can eat the most delicious Chicken Piri Piri that tastes so delicious and it's nothing like the copied version of Nandos sold in the UK.

Luckily one of the best restaurants in the Algarve the famous O'Barradas (great for celebratory meals) is only a short stroll away or one minute by car, lovely fish and veal.

Carvoeiro with its busy nightlife and the beach is 10 mins by car, favourite beaches include Albandeira, Benagil and Praia da Marinha, all are stunningly dramatically beautiful and away from the tourist traps. Our coakstline between Armacao de Pera and Praia da Rocha is the most beautiful in the Algarve, possibly the world, there are breathtaking cliff top walks and hidden coves to explore along with an abundance of restaurants to sample.

Golf; three courses within 5 minutes, Silves, Gramacho and Val da Pinta, lots more within a 15 minute radius.

Waterparks; the brilliant Slide and Splash is 5 mins away, also very good is Aqualand 8 mins away, check them out online.

Finally we know the best local restaurants where a 3 course meal with half a litre of wine and coffee can be had for under £10!

About The Owner

The owners Peter and Linda,

Are a couple of old grannies that moved to Portugal in 2002 and have both fallen in love with the Silves area and the local people, our three lads and five grandchildren live in the UK.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2002

Why The Owner chose Silves region

We are very fortunate that one of the best restaurants in the Algarve, the O'Barradas is just a five minute stroll, serving quality food and wine.

Another almost world famous restaurant is Rui Marisceira in Silves, shellfish to die for,essential to book in advance here, especially in high season. Hundreds of other restaurants abound the Algarve with prices to suit all pockets, best buy is always Prato do Dia (plate of the day) which normally has several choices of meat or fish.

The villa set on a hillside has three Portuguese neghbours, all kind and caring people, none of which can overlook or overhear any of your private space.

To sit on the veranda looking down the valley to Silves Gare or by the landscaped garden/pool area with a cup of tea in the morning is astonishingly beautiful.

What makes this villa unique

The villa.

Was purpose built which opened in 2006 to exacting standards with meticulous attention to detail. It has been thought thru very carefully with aid of hindsight from our own holidays in years past. Everything is designed for families with children to have a fabulous time with plenty of games all free.

The owners live nearby and will never intrude guests privacy but on hand 24/7 if anything should go wrong or to give advice on local places and events.

Similarly we know the places to avoid for example those restaurants that serve food and does not give value for money, your holiday is important to us.

The heated pools and gardens - are kept scrupulously clean, Linda’s love of plants makes the garden a sight to see, her love of animals is evident in the mini pets corner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We have just come back from the most amazing holiday, I could not recommend this Villa and its hosts, Peter and Linda, enough. The villa is huge, immaculate, 5 star!'

'It looks expensive, but is not really, as it sleeps 8+ so between 4 couples you are in 5 star for less. They have cots, highchairs + lots of toys for kids, games for adults and are so friendly and accommodating. They have the balance perfect, they totally leave you alone unless you approach them for advice or a chat.'

'Anyway I shall shut up and if you ever want a Villa holiday to die for this is the place. G and I are already talking about going back next year.' Louise + Graham Wheeler.

'The holiday was a great success….agreed by all, and that’s thanks to you both for the standard of the villa, its facilities and your kindness. We wouldn’t have done anything different other than stay longer' Steve Dodd

Wow fantastic villa wonderful hosts beatiful locat

  • 5 of 5

So much good to say about this villa but first I want to mention the owners Peter & Linda and how welcoming they made us feel. After a long journey we arrived to a amazing food feast of lamb steaks wine beer the fridge filled we everything you would need.

The villa is just outstanding, spotlessly clean modern with 4 big bedrooms all en'suite. This place is ideal for families of all ages boasting 2 pools ideal for the young ones, also it's gated off so very safe.

The garden is full of flowers orange and lemon trees that Peter let me pick. For the grown ups you have a pool table, table tennis, basket ball net, football net. And also has its own rifle shooting range.

I would strongly recommend this villa to anyone and you would be hard pressed to find anything better. We will certainly be comming back.

Beautiful villa for relaxing family holiday.

Peter and Linda were excellent hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed the first night BBQ. Fabulous villa, gardens and pools. Wonderful place for relaxing family holiday. Within an hour of Faro airport and close to Silves and Carvoeiro. Will definitely go back.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was a family reunion, five adults and three children. It was perfect! Having your own pools and the safety around the large garden was wonderful. Lots of outdoor activities for children. Many quiet areas for evening drinks. Beautiful setting. Hosts Peter and Linda couldn't do enough for us. Would highly recommend this property.

het was fantastisch

  • 5 of 5

Het huis is prachtig, heel praktisch en er is overal aan gedacht. Wij waren er met 2 gezinnen met in totaal 4 tieners. Zwemmen, poolen, tafeltennissen, basketballen, jeu de boule en vooral het schieten was erg leuk , ze hebben zich geen moment verveeld. Elke morgen kwamen Peter en Linda het zwembad schoonmaken, de ligstoelen klaarzetten. We hebben sinaasappels uit eigen tuin gegeten en gedronken. De WIFI is een ouderwets kastje waar je niet met z'n allen tegelijk op kan, maar ja daar ga je niet voor op vakantie!

Truly Amazing! Best villa ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in. We arrived late afternoon to be greeted by the owners Peter and Linda who after only 5 minutes we felt we had known for ages! They were so welcoming and the welcome pack they had left us was truly amazing! We were joined the following evening by our daughter and her partner and our son and his wife and they too were amazed at the quality of the villa! Peter and Linda provided us with steaks and chicken for the BBQ that night and it was wonderful. It was my husband's birthday while we were there and more steaks were purchased for the BBQ. Peter and Linda joined us in the celebrations and organised a music quiz for us and fun was had by all!

As far as the property is concerned we could not fault it and it was exactly as described on the website and very well maintained and spotlessly clean, the gardens and pool area were also stunning. We would definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

There is a lovely restaurant within walking distance which we visited twice which specialises in fish and veal.

We will hopefully be returning next year if Peter and Linda will have us!

Thank you both for making our holiday so special!
