About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Private Villa with gardens and spectacular rural views

Welcome to Casa Mira, Silves. A large three bedroom privately owned villa located just outside the medieval town of Silves. Situated in the semi-rural countryside but close to all amenities and a 20 minute drive to some of the Algarve's most famous beaches and water parks.

The villa is set in its own private gardens and benefits from a south facing balcony from the master bedroom, a roof terrace and a private palm fringed swimming pool and solarium.

The villa benefits from air conditioning for the warmer summer months and electric heating and a traditional log burner for the cooler months. There are three large bedrooms all with large built in wardrobes. The air conditioned master bedroom on the first floor has a large en suite bathroom with an enclosed shower unit, large bath and plenty of storage. The two additional bedrooms on the ground floor have fans provided and windows can be left open as they are covered with a fly screen. They have a family bathroom between.

The west facing solarium and pool area provide ample sunshine and long lasting warmth into the evenings. The lush tropical gardens have been thoughtfully planted and beautifully maintained for your enjoyment. Behind the main garden and pool area is a large fully fenced field which is ideal for playing games in. The villa has all the privacy and space you could want. Return from the beaches in the late afternoon to air conditioning, a drink by the pool and a little more effortless relaxation.

The pool can be heated upon request for a €17 daily supplement.

The historic town of Silves is approximately a 5 minute drive by car where there are supermarkets, numerous bars, renowned restaurants and shops. Two big water parks (Slide and Splash and Aqualand) are within a 15 minutes drive, and Zoo Marine for the whole family within a 20 minutes drive. The Algarve Shopping Centre at Guia, just 25 minutes drive away, offers great High Street shops, cinemas and restaurants. The villa is an ideal base for walking, cycling, horse riding, surfing, bird watching and tennis holidays or just chilling out.

The villa also benefits from being central to many golf courses in the central Algarve region. Most notable are the Pestana Silves Golf and the beautiful Ocianico Faldo courses are all within a short drive. Other nearby courses include: Pinta Golf Course, Amendoeira Golf Resort, Morgado Golf, Ocianico O'Connor Jnr. There is also a Par 9 course at Vale de Milho just outside Carvoeiro which is suitable for families. Discounted green fees and special packages are available on many courses.

There is a friendly multi lingual British lady who will be on hand to assist you when necessary. She'll never intrude on your privacy but is on hand to help out 24/7 if anything goes wrong. She looks after a few villas in the area, lives locally and knows the area extremely well. Upon request she can provide you with lots of local information and recommendations for dinner should you wish to dine out. Detailed directions to the villa will be provided before your arrival as well as all of the important access information. Your holiday is extremely important to us. The villa's own site can be found by searching for Casa Mira, Silves enabling direct contact.

A Welcome Food Pack can also be provided for you if required for a small extra charge, so you don't need to rush straight out to the shops or restaurant on arrival, just drop your bags, chill out and enjoy. Baby cot, stair-gate and high chair can be provided by prior arrangement. A mobile phone number is available 24 hours a day during your stay for emergency calls.

About Peter Flanagan

I live in Kent in the UK with my family and two dogs. I love to travel and see new parts of the world, but always love to spend time in Portugal.

Peter Flanagan purchased this villa in 2015

Why Peter Flanagan chose Silves

The villa has so many great benefits but for me it was the fact it is situated slightly inland away from the hustle and bustle of the Algarve. It can get very busy during the peak summer months, so the villa is a welcome retreat at the end of a long day at the beaches, water parks or shops. The temperatures are usually a few degrees warmer inland too which is great for out of season rentals. The rural countryside views are great especially from the roof terrace.

What makes this villa unique

We provide full free WiFi throughout the villa and around the pool so you will always be able to access the internet should you so wish. The TV also is provided via the internet so the choice of channels is great. We have a UK & Ireland package as well as a European system giving channels in multiple languages. The pool and surrounding patio area have been completely refurbished.

Silves is a beautiful town surrounded with orange and lemon tree groves, sitting by the banks of the Arade River. There is history at every turn in Silves, to remind you of its affluent and bold past as a Moorish capital. The most eye catching monument is Castelo de Silves, which is a very well preserved castle in the centre of the town. The castle and the Cathedral beside it are the first buildings you generally see as you approach Silves, as they sit on the hilltop above the town.Silves boasts a very pretty central square, Praça do Municipio, with palm trees and flowers, beautiful gardens, and a newly paved river front. The local market building is on the main street opposite the river, and along this same street are numerous cafés with outside seating offering lovely river views. Within the town, there are cobbled streets, cafés, numerous restaurants and shops. Silves is an ideal place for that truly relaxed holiday - a good selection of places to wine and dine, interesting historic places to visit and in the beautiful inland Algarve where you can walk and explore to your heart's content.Silves is not far from the coast, so you can have the best of both worlds - a place in the country and days at the seaside. It is also ideally placed for those family fun things like water parks (Slide and Splash at Lagoa is only a short drive away), a visit to the zoo (Zoo Lagos isn't far and their 'monkey islands' are excellent) or a day at Algarve Shopping mall at Guia, near Albufeira. Another great day out is at Zoomarine oceanarium, again at Guia. Take your swimsuits as there are outside pools as well as the dolphins, sea lions and birds of prey shows.
