Superb Villa 10 Mins From Carvoeiro And Beach, Close To Silves Golf, Totally Pri

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
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.

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

Another fabulous stay.

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at this villa a few times before we knew to expect a stunning, immaculately clean, beautiful villa and we were so pleased to find things even better. We are delighted to have found this gem in Portugal as we now will not use any other villa and have been coming back here for the last 3 years. The Villa is outstanding but in addition to this Peter and Linda, the owners, who we now consider friends, complete it.They ensure that the property is perfect in every way and go out of their way to help if any thing further is needed. Pete and Linda live next to the property but are at no point ever intrusive. Depending upon your preference they will be around if you need them or retain their distance if you prefer. I would recommend this Villa to anyone and am already looking for dates for our return visit next year. A beautiful place with lovely, helpful owners. Thank guys.

Take all your expectations, now imagine better!

  • 5 of 5

I could simply do a review with one sentence..it would read as this...

"This is the best villa you will ever stay in from the whole of OwnersDirect".

I will embellish it though (because that's just me)...

The villa is simply stunning. Every detail is thought through and designed to make your stay just the most relaxing holiday ever. Everything "just works", the place is immaculate and so well maintained, and the facilities are superb. The pool area is just heaven!

On top of a truly beautiful and well looked after villa, is Peter and Linda the owners! They live just next door so are on hand if you need anything at all, but at the same time they are completely unobtrusive so you really can relax. Though I thoroughly recommend you take the chance to have a glass with them as they are lovely company too, and have so many stories and tips for your stay!

Their service is what makes this villa "second to none" and you will be delighted you chose to spend time as their guests.

A Private Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Fraqueza has everything you could possibly want and more; and it is situated in a lovely rural spot which makes it hard to beat. Peter and Linda will look after your every need but privacy is guaranteed to enjoy the lovely garden, games and of course the two pools. Visiting in Oct we had the pool heated and it was spot on. It was all we could do to get our 4 yr old out of it!

The villa is really handy for the main routes (A22) to visit all attractions in Algarve. We enjoyed several lovely sandy beaches, all a very short drive away. Slide and Splash was a good family day out. Also lots of boat trips from Lagos.

We highly recommend this villa and the wonderful owners and we hope to return one day.

STUNNING!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege of staying at this beautiful villa last week with my family. After a busy day travelling we finally arrived at our beautiful destination. We were all amazed and was so excited to get settled in. Peter and Linda showed us around and gave us our welcome pack which was amazing they even included soya products for my baby who has a milk allergy which to me was so kind and I was totally grateful. Peter and Linda are living on site too but they did not intrude what so ever we felt totally at home in this beautiful villa.. Every room was very clean and so comfortable and decorated to a very high standard. The kitchen had absolutely everything you can think of in it and we loved the BBQ area we had the most beautiful steaks most nights.. ;) The pool and garden area was so lovely and relaxing we had 4 children with us and they totally loved the pool and swings.. Basically this villa is stunning in every way and as a family we were totally blessed to stay here for a week. we will defiantly be returning and will highly recommend this villa to our friends or to anyone else. We went to the local restaurant which was amazing (can't remember the name) this restaurant is a must visit... We will defiantly be returning guys take care and we will see you soon.. Thank you again for making us feel so at home and being excellent hosts and doing your upmost best to ensure we enjoyed our holibobs

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

Nearest beach Carvoeiro 10 mins by car, hundreds of other beaches all very close, our 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.

Travel:

Faro airport 35 mins by car. Car hire essential, we can recommend local car hire companies in Faro that are much cheaper than the big high street names.

Distances:

1km to Silves Gare, this tiny village has no church or library but has seven bars! 4km to the larger city of Silves, 4km Lagoa, 10km Carvoeiro, 300 metres to one of the best restaurants in the Algarve, the famous O'Barradas, especially for fish and veal and huge selection of affordable wine, top quality dining at UK pub prices. A host of other restaurants some ridiculously cheap for example a 3 course meal with half a litre of wine & coffee included for 8.50 euros,many within a 10 minute drive.

Further Details:

Free fabulous welcome pack, minimum contents are tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread, butter, ham, cheese, jam, croissants, lemonade, wine, beer, chocolate, crisps, eggs, bacon, baked beans, tomatoes, cereal, orange juice, apple juice and much more, all the ingredients are top quality and you should have no need to rush to the shops or restaurants, just chill out and enjoy. We tick more boxes than anyone else in the same locality and price range, guaranteed.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
