This villa is situated along a valley close to the historic town of Silves. This is without doubt one of the most attractively restored cottages we have ever seen set in a landscape of low, rolling hills covered in olive and citrus trees. This is a fabulous area for walking with spectacular views and wild flowers in the spring time and activities such as horse riding and archery are available within a ten minute drive.
The villa is far enough from the coast to give a sense of the real Algarve, yet some of the finest beaches and golf courses in Europe are within easy reach. There are some great restaurants in Vale Fuzeiros (about 5kms away), serving simple Portuguese food.
The nearby Rainha Restaurant is very popular for Sunday lunch. The Barragem do Arade (reservoir) is about 4kms away and is worth a visit. The cottage has been painstakingly renovated and retains many original features which combine well with modern fixtures and fittings. The exceptionally attractive living/dining room/kitchen is open-planw ith a beamed ceiling and green kitchen work surfaces complimenting the mint green sofas in the living area.
There is a mezzanine on the first floor overlooking the living room below and there are lots of windows making the property light and airy. The English owners have young children so care has been taken to make the cottage as safe as possible (although there are steps both internally and externally, there are gates so that these areas can be closed off). The tiny swimming pool has a cover which ensures a pleasant temperature. This unique property is ideal for those who enjoy the countryside and would be the perfect choice for a honeymoon.
