Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Silves, on the banks of the river Arade, is an enchanting town with its network of narrow cobbled streets. The cottage has been tastefully modernised and is fully equipped for a self-catering holiday. There is a small sun terrace with table and chairs. Supermarkets are a short walk away and the town hall square has free wi-fi. Transport links are good but a rental car would be helpful to visit the golden beaches of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo which are 15 minutes away. Silves, away from the madding crowds and apartment blocks of the coast, is the perfect place for a tranquil and relaxing holiday.

The Algarve region
The Algarve has 300 sunny days per year with temperatures from 16 to 35 degrees, sandy beaches and golf courses. It is steeped in history going back to the Copper Age, followed by the Greeks, the Romans and also the Moors.
The medieval town of Silves has a superb castle, cathedral and archaeological museum. There is a very evident Moorish influence in the town. The 10 day medieval fair is held in August. There is a large fitness park that adjoins the river and leads to the town swimming pool. The town is littered with orange and lemon trees and storks nest's everywhere.
