Silves Villa with Pool to Rent Privately for Holidays - Algarve - Portugal World Holidays and Villas

Casa dos Sonhos CASA DOS SONHOS,

Casa das Sonhos

Casa dos Sonhos (House of Dreams) was built about 200 years ago. It is single storey and was modernised and converted from two dwellings into one house about 10 years ago. The house features many typical Algarvian features including open beamed ceilings throughout, archways and alcoves to most rooms, and lovely tiled decorative wall panels.

In the country, amongst a small Portuguese community and surrounded by citrus groves, the house is situated to the south east of Silves and can be approached from the Algoz to Silves road at Poço Barreto or from Silves itself. There are pleasant views from the property, including towards the hills of Monchique.

The sea is about 15 minutes drive away and there are a variety of beaches from the coves between Armação de Pêra and Carvoeiro to the long sandy beach to the east of Armação de Pêra.

The house consists of two double bedrooms (one with twin beds, the other with a double bed), and a single bedroom with an additional put-me-up bed suitable for a child. There is also a bed settee in the lounge. We do provide a travel cot and high chair.

There are two bathrooms, a modern kitchen, a good sized sitting room and separate dining room.

Outside is a swimming pool and garden, with flowering shrubs and citrus trees. Guests are free to enjoy freshly picked citrus fruits from the garden. There is a sheltered patio running along the front of the house, a poolside barbecue is provided.

Dining Room


The house has local and satellite TV and a video player. The kitchen includes a microwave, blender etc. and there is a washing machine. The house is cosy in winter, with a wood-burning stove and electric panel radiators. In summer the shutters keep the interior cool. Whilst the house can accommodate up to 7, many of our guests are couples.

The maid visits twice during the week, plus Saturday to do the basic cleaning and to change and wash the bed linen and towels. We have a local manager who looks after the house and can assist if clients have any problems.

The journey from Faro airport takes around 45 minutes. It is necessary to hire a car, not just for the journey to and from the airport but also to go out to do the shopping, go to the beach and to restaurants.

The nearest golf course is Salgados, a links course about 15 minutes' drive away, but there are many other courses within easy reach, e.g. Penina, Pestana, Gramacho, Vale de Lobo, Vilamoura.

The pool of Casa dos Sonhos

There are 2 large supermarkets in Silves (Modelo and Lidl), many smaller shops and banks and also plenty of restaurants in the area. Silves has some tourist attractions too - the castle, the cathedral, the museum and a cultural entertainment/restaurant complex, created in 1999 out of an old cork factory, called the 'Fabrica Ingles'.

Monchique, the highest point on the Algarve, is within easy reach and Silves is a good point from which to explore further afield to, for example, Loulé, Portimão and Sagres/Cape St. Vincent (the most westerly point in Europe).
