The Attraction Of Silves

Nestled at the southern tip of Portugal's Algarve region lays the small, unspoilt and historically important town of Silves, the former capital of the Algarve. Sited on the Arade river, Silves was an important strategic location since at least Roman times as it guarded the hinterlands. During the medieval Moorish occupation the town was a cultural centre for the entire region. All this history has left its mark on the town yet it retains its traditional Algarve character. Silves is ideally situated for your summer holidays in Portugal because in addition to being a fascinating place in its own right it is also close to glorious beaches and the hills and forests of the picturesque interior. Here are tiny villages of whitewashed houses with ornate chimneys, and doors and windows framed in blue. The region is gentle, quiet and timeless, the people friendly and welcoming.

Self Catering Accommodation In Silves

There are numerous options available to choose from for your self-catering holiday rentals in Silves. If you are thinking of a summer holiday with family and friends you might wish to consider a townhouse with an amazing view of Silves Castle to enjoy from the private swimming pool and patio area. If you would rather be in the medieval heart of the Old Town you could opt for a holiday cottage in a quaint cobbled street within easy walking distance of bars, restaurants and shops. For complete privacy and utter tranquillity you could choose as your vacation rental a luxury lodge on a private 100 acre estate with two picturesque lakes, or a villa with a private swimming pool set amidst orange groves. Picture your family holidays being spent in an air conditioned renovated farmhouse with a solar heated swimming pool, a shady exterior dining area with BBQ, and mountain views. Passionate golfers might give some thought to an apartment in a nearby golf resort with access to two courses, tennis courts and a gym.

Exciting Things to Do in Silves

Perched on a hilltop overlooking Silves are a castle and a Gothic cathedral surrounded by narrow, cobbled streets winding around the hill. Having survived battles between Christians and Muslims, Silves Castle is the best preserved in the Algarve, and its history can be traced back to the 8th century. The Cork Museum, occupying the site of a former cork factory, traces the story of this important regional product. For family days out there is a water park in nearby Lagoa, and an oceanarium at Guia. Close to Silves are excellent beaches, and inland are beautiful forest clad hills so inviting for a day's walking. There are several excellent restaurants to sample in the town.
