Algarve - Silves - Self-Catering Country Cottage with Pool

  • 1 Bedroom 
  • Sleeps 2 people. A maximum of 2 adults.
  • 1 Bathroom

Holiday Rental Algarve Country Cottage with Pool - Silves

Looking for a self-catering holiday home in the central Algarve countryside?  Then you've found it with our lovely Algarve rental accommodation - a getaway-from-it-all country cottage for a couple looking to enjoy a holiday in the 'real' Algarve, but still be within a short drive of the coast and beaches.

It's not a standard Algarve holiday villa or apartment... it's even better! This picture perfect country cottage is set in a private gated courtyard with a small swimming pool in a semi-rural setting with the most stunning views over the Arade Valley to the hills of Monchique.

An 8 minute drive from the old Moorish capital of Silves this self-catering accommodation offers a truly relaxing environment in a traditional Algarvian cottage...small & pefectly formed!

We think this is the perfect self catering Algarve accommodation for those who want to explore the real Portugal...for walking, bird watching, cycling or just relaxing.  And of course if you want to golf there are coursese everywhere in the Algarve, the nearest to our house being Silves Golf Course.

The holiday accommodation is set in beautiful countryside - lush with orange, lemon and olive groves - in the little hamlet of Cumeada, between the market towns of Silves & Messines.

A short drive to many restaurants, this is the perfect place to use as a base to explore both coast and inland.

Beaches - and there are dozens to choose from - are an easy 20 minute drive.  Albufeira, Gale, Salgados, Alvor, Carvoeiro ...to name but a few of the stunning Algarve beaches and retty villages and towns... will soon be on your 'must see' list. 
Surfers can reach the west coast beaches around Carrapateira in 45 minutes.


Our rates are already excellent but if you book and pay in full more than six months ahead of your travel dates we'll take 5 per cent off your bill!


 


*Long winter rentals considered.

More Details

This one bedroom Algarve holiday cottage - or small villa as some prefer -  is for those who want to explore the real Algarve.... for walking holidays, bird watching, cycling or just relaxing.

This was our home for many years and having just relocated back to the UK we are now offering the cottage for holiday rental so that others can enjoy it during the summer months.

But first of all can we ask you not to be confused by the photographs that show two cottages. Don't worry...you aren't sharing!

Together with another small cottage your house is situated within a private terraced courtyard together with a small pool (4m x 3m) and lots of outside seating for dining, sunbathing or just relaxing. As we are situated on top of a prominent ridge, we have amazing views over the surrounding countryside.

The adjacent cottage is our private space when we visit the and we do not live there when guests are visiting during the spring and summer months...and so you have maximum privacy.
You have a one bedroom cottage with a lounge and separate dining room and a fantastic gated courtyard all to yourself. Nobody can see into the courtyard so you can go skinny dipping if you want - it is THAT private!

There is just one bedroom, with a double bed and a small en-suite shower-room. Ther is also a separate large shower-room.

The cottage is available for either a single traveller or couple only...sorry no children or pets.

The bedroom has the choice of air-conditioning or a large traditional ceiling fan, but we must point out that as this is a traditional Algarvian longhouse, with walls up to 2ft thick, it keeps its cool in the summer..you'll rarely need a fan.  In winter the air con unit acts as a heater.


There's a small kitchen with hob and oven and washing machine and next to this is the living area with its very high ceilings.
Next to this is a lovely dining room with an antique oak table and dresser.

This is not a typical 'holiday let'. It is cosy, quirky and full of character and very much a 'home'...it isn't clinical in any way.

Eat breakfast on our beautiful terrace or in the dining room.
In the evenings relax on the roof terrace with a glass of something cool and watch the sun go down over the Monchique hills.


Head down to the fantastic local restaurant or drive over the valley for a few minutes for another two great local restaurants and cafes.


A few minutes further (only 8km) you'll reach Silves or Messines with as many restaurants, cafes and shops you'll want.


Be on any one of many beaches in under 20 minutes.

The lounge has a TV with freeview UK channels.
We also have lots of books, board games etc.
There is also free fast speed wifi, whuich can also be accessed on the terrace.

Guests who visit this peaceful location are usually looking for somewhere to switch off - and it couldn't fit the bill better for that.
But it is also a fantastic location for those who want to walk or cycle in the stunning countryside.

There's no problem with mobile phone signals.

This Silves cottage really is a home from home in a beautiful part of the Algarve and we look forward to welcoming you for a relaxing stay in your very own little piece of paradise.


***Please note our testimonials are from guests who enjoyed their stay with us on a B&B basis..the cottage is only self catering this year and we will not be there!
...and you will have to make your own breakfast!

Hey Anne, just wanted to say thanks for letting me stay in your beautiful villa. Lovely place and so peaceful. Had an amazing time 😎 Adrian from Scotland
Hi there, I was lucky enough to stay your amazing villa recently, and thought it would be fitting to just drop a quick message of thanks at that opportunity. Had a great time, villa was smashing and Silves and surroundings incredible. Cheers, Thomas x Thomas from Glasgow
Martin & Ali were on a tandem cycling trip around the Algarve and we were delighted they chose us for their first and last stop.

After the trip Martin gave talks at his local cycling club and described us in the heading! Delighted to have been able to set them up for their tandem trip!

Martin and Ali flew to Faro in March and enjoyed the best Scots porridge in the world!
They also explored the quiet areas of inland Algrave, stopped in more cafes than you can
imagine and camped wild in some superb locations.
