Little paradise to visit south-west of Portugal

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming little cottage on a small hill near Silves, in a little remote location to enjoy quietness, but not too far too be able to visit all the beautiful beaches and sites of Algarve. You will enjoy the nice little town of Silves with its castle, little restaurants avoiding the crowds of Lagos or Portimao. Drives to beaches are never very long, as the scenery is beautiful.

The house is clean and very well equipped, and we enjoyed every single day we stayed there with our 3 children. The swimming pool is a blessing, especially on very hot days of July.

Dick, the owner is very helpful and makes sure you are spending a wonderful time in his house. The manager is only a few minutes away if one needs any help.

We are definitely looking forward to go back to this charming place.

Outstanding property in tranquil settings.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful traditional villa set in lovely mature tropical gardens, which have been designed to provide a perfect balance for sun bathing and shade for the hotter days. Between the villa & garden is a lovely salt swimming pool, with good quality and substantial outside furniture. The large private terraces provide gorgeous views of a wooded valley with old farm houses scattered around and hills in the distance, which can be explored on foot.

Inside the villa is equipped with a beautiful mixture of antique and modern furniture. The kitchen has retained its Portuguese style which creates a rustic charm.

The annex provided a lovely independent space for parents to relax.

The outside kitchen/dining area with sink, BBQ and fridge was outstanding and used every day.

The owner was exceptionally helpful from the first email and his local manager Mike, was also very helpful, whom we are indebted to.

Marvellous place , a green oasis of peace

  • 5 of 5

We spend a lovely holiday at this beautiful place. Charming, tastefully decorated house with many typical Portuguese accents. The outside couldn’t be better. Big terraces with lovely, mature tropical vegetation. The enormous garden guarantees privacy, but still is very intimate. The property is surrounded by wild orchards, only a few white houses at big distances.

We are very happy finding this place. Returning to the Algarve, we surely will try to rent this house again.

Eine Oase im Hinterland der Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Fam. mit 2 erw. Kindern) waren 14 Tage in der Casa Pequeno Mundo. Der erste Eindruck von der Villa und der Außenanlage übertraf unsere Erwartungen.

Das Haus ist überaus geschmackvoll und individuell, mit der Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Der wunderschön begrünte Poolbereich hatte viele schattige Plätzchen wo man sich auch bei höheren Temperaturen zurück ziehen konnze. Von den 2 großzügigen Terassen hatte man einen traumhaften Überblick über die Gartenanlage und die angrenzende Landschaft.

Die Küste mit den vielen unterschiedlichsten Buchten oder langen Sandstränden erreichte man, je nach Lage, nach 15 bis 30 minütiger Autofahrt. Ganz bezaubernd war das wunderschöne Städtchen Silves welches 15 Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen ist. Viele kleine Gassen mit Retaurants, Geschäften und Supermärkten laden hier zum essen und einkaufen ein.

Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war sehr gut und unkompliziert, so dass keine Fragen und Wünsche offen blieben.

Owner's Response: Liebe Gäste, Danke vielmals für diese schöne Worte. Es macht uns sehr Froh dass Sie das Haus und das Ausschenbereichs so positiv anerkennen. Wir sind stolz dass , bis jetzt, al unsere Gäste Enthusiast sind. Die Golfküste der Algarve , westlich von Albufeira bis Cabo Sao Vincente ist wunderschön und gibt Zehner sehr private Baier mit herrlichen Sandstrände. Oft gibt es dort gemütliche Bar/Restaurants wo man für nicht viel Geld frische Fisch oder etwas anders essen kann. Nochmals viel dank dass Sie die Mühe genommen habe diese ausständige Bewertung zu schreiben . Viele Grüße, Dick und Josepha.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful week in the Algarve. Due to the central location of the house we visited many places. Didn’t know that such beautiful beaches were that close. Only 20 minutes drive. Vale do Centianes and Praia da Marinha, Albandeira and others are really astonishing. There are various lovely places to watch to sunset on the coastline in Armacao de Pera. Don’t forget to do the walk along the cliff coast from Armacao till Benagill. The house itself is very charming and we enjoyed the special Portuguese atmosphere very much. The outside is magnificent. An oasis of tropical plants and old trees. There are several big terraces which are beautiful connected with house and garden. On the terraces you have your own private world with a terrific view on a never ending green valley where only birds seems to reside.

We’re very happy could rent this house and hope to return in future.

We come again!

  • 5 of 5

This really is an excellent place to stay. The house has a lovely Portuguese atmosphere and is beautiful decorated by the owners. The outside is absolutely top. The garden is a big, terraced plot of land with a beautiful, mature tropical vegetation. Next to the garden there is a wide abandoned valley with a few farms on big distance.

No one around, 100% private.

The lounge and kitchen are well connected with the outside terraces. On the terraces you find two nice wooden diner sets; one nearby the cosy kitchen and the other next to the big and covered BBQ area. The pool is on the next level below, with another huge terrace where you find nice wooden sun beds. Lying on the beds watching the big palm trees and enormous cypresses was like a dream.

The house is situated in a very quiet and hilly area with a varied vegetation like oranges, olives and cork oaks where we made some nice walks. Silves is a historical town at only a 10 minutes drive. The cliff coast nearby Senhora de Rocha and Carvoeiro is imposing. You can find there nice bars to enjoy the sea view. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a quiet and peaceful holiday!
