Silves 1 Bedroom Holiday Home
Townhouse | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A spacious one bedroom terraced townhouse in the old historical centre of Silves, the Algarve's former Moorish capital.
With a double bed, sofa bed for children, free WiFi (there's even a computer desk!), cable TV, DVD and lots of books it really is designed to be a home from home for a couple of young family.
There's a very small outside terrace with two chairs (no view, sorry) and this also has the washing machine.
There are storks nesting outside, lots of fantastic restaurants to suit all pockets within a few minutes stroll, the imposing Silves walls leading up to the Castle are practically on your doorstep..and the riverfront with its cafes to watch the world go by are equally close.
This is the kind of place to use as a base for exploring the Algarve.
Hit the beaches.....There are several within 15 minutes by car. Armacao de Pera, Carvoeiro, Ferragudo, Portimao, Alvor, Lagos, Albufeira....they are all an easy drive from Silves.
Every August Silves hosts a fantastic Medieval Fair that takes over the town for just over a week. There are stalls, entertainment, jousting, eating and generally a lot of just having a ball! The street that the house sits on is part of the Medieval Fair and has stalls outside selling beautiful Moroccan wares...but it does go on until the early hours. Usually the first week in August - at the time of writing still to be confirmed for 2013. This is a fantastic event for all the family.
Explore inland...the Algarve has more to offer than beaches you know! The area around Silves is famous for its oranges and you'll soon find out why if you take yourself for a walk or bike ride..or just a drive..around the stunning countryside.
Check out the area around Cumeada, Canhestros, Gregorios, Vale Fuzeiros and on to Messines and Alte.
Head a bit further inland and you'' soon realise that it's not too far to drive to the next region, the amazing Alentejo.
Get walking or on your bike.... As we alluded to above this area is fantastic if you love the outdoors. The Algarve Way - Via Algarviana - is a walking route that takes you from the Spanish border to the westernmost point at Sagres..and the area around Silves is quite stunning. Use this townhouse as a base for walking the central part of the Via Algarviana and we can arrange transport to your start points for other parts of the journey. If this is of interest you just have to ask and we can arrange something to suit.
Get out your camera.... Photography opportunities abound in this area. Architecture, people, flora, fauna...we've got it all..and the beaches of course. We can even arrange your own private professional tutor to come along and meet you in Silves!
Of course you are....!
