About the property

Villa, 4 bedrooms, huge garden, quiet, walking distance beach & restaurants

Located just a stone throw from one of the most beautiful beaches of the Algarve (praia da Marinha), Quinta do Silencio is a property of high standing. It was designed by a renowned Portuguese architect and furnished with elegance. Its 4 bedroom-suites, and the generous proportions of every room, make it an ideal choice for large families (internal dimensions : 350 m2 / 3766 ft2). The numerous covered patios (allowing you to take your meals outside facing the sea) and terraces command unrestricted breathtaking views over the ocean.

The 1st floor (a bedroom, bathroom, separate lounge and terrace with impressive views over the sea) is of course accessible through the house itself, but also through a separate access, providing more flexible accommodation.

Outside, the house is set in a huge and mature garden (3 500 m2) with large lawn area and a 12x5 m private swimming-pool.

A character full retreat within walking distance from magnificent beaches and a several restaurants.

We have discovered Portugal more than 30 years ago and immediately felt in loved with this country and Portuguese people. We now know quite well Algarve and its treasures, such as the other regions of the country for having worked and travelled through almost whole of them. We remain at your full disposal to share our knowledge and experience, and help you to organize a pleasant stay and visit, in this beautiful and captivating country. If it is your first time in Portugal, for sure you will come back !

5 Sterne Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Sehr stilvolles Haus mit herrlicher Terrasse, seehr viel Platz und einem XL Pool.

herrliche Rundumsicht, gepflegte Gartenanlage.

Ideal , um sich zu erholen, und trotzdem inmitten aller Algarve Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Auto wird allerdings unbedingt benötigt ....

Fast schade, dass das Wetter so gut war, dass wir innen nur die Küche und die Schlafzimmer benötigt haben.

Das Haus war jeden Euro wert!

Traumhafte Villa in Strandnähe

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche mit unseren 3 Kindern in der Quinta do Silencio verbracht. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, sehr geräumig, der Pool ist ein Traum, der Meerblick von der Veranda unvergesslich. Mehrere Strände sind in unmittelbarer Umgebung (man braucht am besten ein Mietauto). Sehr angenehm war die Reinigung während der Woche, überhaupt waren alle sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Wir haben uns wirklich sehr wohl gefühlt und möchten mit Sicherheit wieder kommen.

Das Haus kann man uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen.

Urlaub in einer Traumvilla

  • 5 of 5

Wir (6 Erwachsene und 1 Kind) haben zwei Wochen in dieser Traumvilla verbracht und der Zustand entspricht wirklich der Beschreibung. Das Haus ist sehr gut konzipiert, sehr großzügig. Selbst in der Küche können mehrere Personen werken. Die Waschküche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und die Wäsche kann problemlos getrocknet werden. Die Terrasse ist so schön, dass man gar keine Lust mehr hat, irgendwohin essen zu gehen. Von der Terrasse aus kann man auch sehr gut auf schwimmende Kinder aufpassen. Im August waren die Strände so überlaufen, dass wir meistens im Pool geschwommen sind und gespielt haben. Es war einfach traumhaft schön.

Aufgrund der Lage ist es ratsam einen Mietwagen oder ein eigenes Auto zu haben. Genügend Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind vorhanden: Aldi, Intermarché, Apolinaria (sehr exklusiv und teuer) und Pingo Doce (sehr günstiges einheimisches Einkaufsgeschäft).

Der Eigentümer Jean-Pierre mit seiner Frau sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Bei Rückfragen stehen sie stets zur Verfügung.

Celestine – die Reinemachefrau – ist sehr lieb und freundlich. Ganz viele Grüße an sie und ihren Sohn.

Die Abwicklung verlief problemlos. Es war unsere erste Erfahrung über FeWo-direkt und wir wurden nicht enttäuscht. Sehr guter Kontakt mit Magui.

Nous (6 adultes et 1 enfant) avons passé deux semaines dans cette villa de rêve et l’état des lieux et l’équipement correspond tout à fait au descriptif sur internet. La maison est très bien conçue, très spacieuse. Même dans la cuisine plusieurs personnes peuvent s’y tenir en même temps. La buanderie est très bien équipée et le linge peut être séché facilement. La terrasse est si belle que vous n’avez même plus envie d'aller manger quelque part ailleurs. De la terrasse, vous pouvez aussi très bien surveiller les enfants qui se baignent. En Août, les plages étaient tellement bondées que nous sommes restés le plus souvent à jouer et à nous baigner dans la piscine. C’était tout simplement formidable.

En raison de l'emplacement, il est conseillé d'avoir une voiture de location ou personnelle. De nombreux magasins sont situés à quelques kilomètres : Aldi, Intermarché, Apolinaria (très exclusif et cher) et Pingo Doce (magasin local très intéressant).

Le propriétaire Jean-Pierre et sa femme sont très sympathiques et serviables. Pour toute question, ils sont toujours disponibles.

Celestine - la femme de ménage - est très agréable et gentille. Nos meilleures salutations à elle et son fils.

Beautiful & Fun stay

  • 4 of 5

The villa and garden/pool is beautiful, spacious and suited us perfectly. The wifi worked well and if it stopped, switching it off and on again resolved it. We were initially confused by the TV room upstairs and thought this would be better as a master family suite. However, the room became very useful for the children once we found all the movies on the hard disc drive. There is no AC but we didn't mind and there were fans available. A 2nd cot was arranged with no fuss. We entertained a large group of family and friends one afternoon and there was no problem raised - we tried to keep the noise down. A friendly neighbours dog was very welcome to visit us. The water pump/supply failed but this was replaced quickly and curteously. Some of the fittings and fixtures could do with updating. Overall a fabulous villa and great place to stay. Thank you for having us - we would do it all again.

Fabulous villa and fabulous pool and gardens

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect villa and pool. We were a party of 9 - 50 year olds and we all loved it - great location and views and SO spacious. Perfectly situated for the central Algarve - we had such fun staying there and would recommend it without hesitation - we just hope to return. The owner was very easy to deal with - there was a welcome basket and the villa had everything we needed. For those visiting in the future - you are in for a treat !

Oddles of Personality

  • 5 of 5

This place is serene and capacious with lots of personality with wide-ranging ocean outlook. The architecture of the property is marvellous The rooms are voluminous and bright when shutters are open.

On arrival there was a welcome basket with lots of local produce, such as bread, biscuits, fruit and a bottle of red and white wine, which was a very nice touch and appreciated.

The property was neat and tidy, and well-kept and the cleaner was friendly and polite and the owner introduced himself and was very pleasant and helpful

The grounds are plentiful and is sympathetically landscaped and luscious and the pool is perfect and there is an assortment of toys and games, including a paddling pool, which my two young children loved playing in.

I have travelled to this part of Portugal many times and I feel very comfortable and at home whenever I visit. This area has some wonderful beaches and restaurants within easy reach.

To summarise, we absolutely loved this place and our stay so much, that we simply did not want to leave. We are already planning a return.

Happy Days!!!
