About Martin Silva

Serilia and I live in Canada but spend our summers in Portugal. The Villa was built in the 80s by Serilia's parents when they moved back to Portugal. We did a complete renovation a few years ago of the main house, Villa Peixe Rei, and adapted some secondary buildings to be the Vivenda dos Pavoes unit. We do the gardening and cleaning and when asked provide advice for local goings-on.

Why Martin Silva chose Olhao region

Villa Peixe Rei has 3 bedrooms, large garden with lawn, pool, barbecue and sleeps 6. It is a modern Villa (built in 1980, remodelled in 2001), with views of the sea (Ria Formosa) and the mountain (Cerro de Sao Miguel). Located in the centre of a vast orange grove, the Villa is surrounded by a magnificent garden, with a sunny section, around the pool, and a shady paradise under an ancient mulberry tree. Around the Barbecue, a grape vine trellis, shades a paved area where a table can be installed so your grilled foods can jump from the fire into your plate.

What makes this villa unique

Far from the maddening crowd, surrounded by orange trees, yet close enough to Olhao and Moncarapacho that if you ran out of milk or bread, you will be back in 5 minutes.

15 minutes from Faro Airport, the access is most convenient.

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of April in the smaller Villa Pavoes. The villa is very clean and very well equipped. The pool was great and got warmer the further we got into the month. As to location, well it was just perfect. Very rural but still close to Olhao. To come outside first thing in the morning to the smell of orange blossom was amazing. It was lovely to be able to pick a few fresh oranges each morning and they were the best we’ve tasted.

We were made to feel so welcome by Maria, Luis, Martin and Serilia. They offer very good advice on where to go and what to do and are always available to help with any issues.

A visit to Olhao market (every morning apart from Sundays) is a must. The fish and vegetables couldn’t be any fresher.

We would recommend the villa to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in beautiful, traditional surroundings. A car is definitely beneficial to enjoy the area.

Olhao has one of the most active fishing ports in the Algarve. The Markets by the water front were the places where all the food was sold before supermarkets came on the scene. Both the fish and vegetable Markets are still very active. every morning you can buy the fish caught that very night. And every Saturday there is a farmer's market with local produce directly from the producers.

With hundreds of restaurants, many directly by the water front, it is famous throughout the Algarve for the freshness of its fish. In August the Festival do Marisco (Sea Food Festival) is an attraction that combines the best culinary delights with the best of big name entertainment.

Ria Formosa is a natural park reserve, where you can visit the well preserved flour mills powered by the force of the tides.

Every Sunday there is a local market in one of the surrounding villages, and an antique market happening somewhere.
