About this location
The Algarve region
There is plenty of day and evening entertainment for everyone. If you're going as a family, couple or group of friends there are plenty of places to go. There are plenty of restaurants within a 5 mile radius. There is one of the best fish restaurants also in Silves 'Marisqueira Rui'. For day entertainment you can go to Zoomarine, Slide & Splash, Crazy World (mini golf and animals), Big One and many others within a short distance. Evening entertainment is also a must in the Algarve.
We only have one airport on the Algarve and this is located 35m away from the villa, so a car is enssential, also for the wonderful sightseeing you can do whilst on holiday.
The are plenty of beautiful beaches on the coast of the Algarve. Silves is located in a prime spot with easy access to all of these. The closest ones are Armacao de Pera and Carvoeiro, approx 15 mins drive. But from here you can go to various other ones as the villa is accessed by 3 different directions making it easy.
Silves has its brand new golf course only 10 mins by car from the villa. Also nearby are the highly rated Vale de Pinta and Gramacho courses. The wonderful new course at Alcantarilha 'The Oceanico Amendoeira Faldo Golf Resort' is 5km away. Designed by Nick Faldo with strategic play in mind this 6,604 meters par–72 championship course demands careful positioning to score well. The Oceanico Amendoeira O'Connor Golf Resort is perfectly complementing the Faldo Course, whilst taking advantage of the rich valley soil in contrast to the arid hillside, Christy O'Connor Jnr's course at Amendoeira offers no less of a challenge.

We did write a review on the owners direct website after staying but did not realise I could write on TripAdvisor for a villa stay as well. Anyway, our stay was great, it was our 5th visit to Portugal… More

"Photo's don't do it justice"
A well furnished villa in a beautiful location. Three good sized bedrooms with air conditioning for the very hot algarve summers. Pool is a revelation and was used all the time. Possible to escape the direct sun at midday in the snooker room. Car is essential as the villa is fairly isolated. Restaurants at Silves are good and the prices are very reasonable. All the people are very friendly and helpful - it seems as if everyone speaks English! Maria, the house manager, is a real treasure and nothing is too much trouble for her. The gardens are extensive and well planted with mature shrubs - the frog pool(s) are fascinating. We didn't use the BBQ as we ate out.

"First class villa with fantastic swimming pool"
Lovely villa with a fantastic swimming pool, big enough to actually swim in. Villa had first class equipment with ample parking and lovely gardens. Maria was very helpful and always available when we had problems. Had an electrical problem with air con which maria sorted quite quickly for us.
One issue...the villa has a resident cat, which is not mentioned on owners direct. We had difficulty keeping the cat out of the villa, and we are not cat lovers. It was a nuisance and because of this, would not book this villa again.
Dear Julia, Many thanks for the lovely review and happy you and your family had a pleasant holiday. We take our guest comments very serious and have given the cat to animal care end of summer 2013. Regards, Ana
