The Algarve region
Nearest beach Carvoeiro 10 mins by car, hundreds of other beaches all very close to this 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.
The new Silves Pestana Golf Course is just 5 minutes drive away, and 2 other courses within 8 minutes drive, many others are all less than a 30 minute drive.
The historic town of Silves is dominated by its castle, you can wander the cobbled streets, visit the market and try one of the many cafés, bars or restaurants. If you travel a little further out of town, in many local villages a three course meal with wine can be bought for around 10 euros!
Faro airport is 35 mins east by car, and in our opinion car hire is essential, 4km to Lagoa, 10km Carvoeiro.
1km to Silves Gare where you can catch a train to anywhere in the Algarve.
Two water parks are near, Slide and Splash is only 5 mins drive, Aqualand is 8 mins.
Our friendly English speaking staff are on hand to welcome you, assist you when necessary and recommend places to visit.
As a small family business we look after a few villas in the area. We live locally, and know the area extremely well. We will provide you with detailed directions to the villa before your arrival. We meet and greet you, and provide you with local information and organise taxi or/and a car hire. We look after our guests and make sure that everything is in order in the villa.
Baby cot and high chair are provided by prior arrangement. We also have reliable English babysitters who will care for your children during the daytime or evening if you should require some time without the kids! Please ask for details.
