A relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 10 days in the cottage. Everything is provided for, and the pool is fantastic. We loved Silves, and visited several times. The cottage is situated in a quiet rural area, which is what we were hoping for. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing break! We also visited O Alambique restaurant on two occasions, and that too is to be recommended.

A wonderful 10 days away

  • 5 of 5

Just had 10 days here. Very comfortable and well equipped cottage, lovely pool, terraces and garden, and so peaceful. The sky at night is amazing. The whole property is very spacious with ample space for privacy. Fabulous, very long, sandy beach at Praia Grande just 15 minutes by car. The beach is spotlessly clean and there is a snack bar, restaurant and cafe to choose from, all with toilets available. Silves is a delightful, historic little town just 5 minutes by car with excellent supermarkets, little shops and some wonderful bars and restaurants. Look out for the occasional free concert in the Cathedral. O Alambique restaurant is a favourite of ours, just 2 minutes from the cottage. The trip from Faro airport to the cottage is easy, mostly motorway type roads and takes about 40 minutes. We will definitely be returning to Alcazar.

The perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Villa Alcazar! The villa is compact and comfortable with all necessary amenities. Then you step outside to beautiful views over the valley and a pool to die for. Local information provided in a welcome pack. A 10 minute drive to the nearest town Silves which has several supermarkets and a stunning castle. 15-20 minute drive to South Coast beaches. Anxious before stay that would be too warm at night without air conditioning, however as listed property is cool, and comfortable even during the height of summer.
