Luxury villa overlooking Silves Gare, 10 Mins from Carvoeiro, gated heated pool, ping pong, pool table, basketball, goal, plus lots more, all private and exclusive.
The owners Peter and Linda, Are a couple of old grannies that moved to Portugal in 2002 and have both fallen in love with the Silves area and the local people, our three lads and six grandchildren live in the UK.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Owner chose Silves
We are very fortunate that one of the best restaurants in the Algarve, the O'Barradas is just a five minute stroll, serving quality food and wine. Another almost world famous restaurant is Rui Marisceira in Silves, shellfish to die for,essential to book in advance here, especially in high season. Hundreds of other restaurants abound the Algarve with prices to suit all pockets, best buy is always Prato do Dia (plate of the day) which normally has several choices of meat or fish. The villa set on a hillside has three Portuguese neghbours, all kind and caring people, none of which can overlook or overhear any of your private space. To sit on the veranda looking down the valley to Silves Gare or by the landscaped garden/pool area with a cup of tea in the morning is astonishingly beautiful.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa. Was purpose built which opened in 2006 to exacting standards with meticulous attention to detail. It has been thought thru very carefully with aid of hindsight from our own holidays in years past. Everything is designed for families with children to have a fabulous time with plenty of games all free. The owners live nearby and will never intrude guests privacy but on hand 24/7 if anything should go wrong or to give advice on local places and events. Similarly we know the places to avoid for example those restaurants that serve food and does not give value for money, your holiday is important to us. The heated pools and gardens - are kept scrupulously clean, Linda’s love of plants makes the garden a sight to see, her love of animals is evident in the mini pets corner.

Wonderful villa lovely hosts fantastic welcome pack of food and drink fabulous fertilities
Great villa for families or groups of friends. Facilities were brilliant and very clean. Pool serviced daily and towel change mid week this included pool / beach towels too.
Perfect family villa!
Peter & Linda were so welcoming to us, a genuinely lovely couple. They work hard to make your stay great, thinking of every little detail you may need during your stay, including a very generous welcome basket! The villa was spotless and lovely and comfortable. We had 2 teenagers with us and there was stuff for them to do too like pool, table tennis, petanque, basket ball, footie etc. The pools are lovely and lots of nice shade if needed. The gardens are beautiful (including lovely, fresh limes off the trees to have with our rum & cokes!). Everything felt very relaxed and perfect for some family time. Silves is a short drive away with lots of lovely places to eat. All in all, could not fault our family holiday. Thank you so much!

Fabulous villa , wonderful hosts.
We had a wonderful week here with our children and grandchildren and couldn't have asked for more. The villa is stunning, very well appointed and equipped, extremely clean and comfortable. The gardens are beautiful and the pool area fabulous, with the added bonus of a child's pool for the little ones. Linda and Peter were perfect hosts - friendly, kind and always available if needed, but very unobtrusive.
The welcome pack was a revelation - never had such a large and varied one before and we honestly could have avoided shopping for two days had we chosen to! The BBQ was wonderful too - great food, all prepared and ready to go, which was great after a day's travelling with little ones.
We wouldn't hestitate to return and will be recommending to friends and family too. Thank you Linda and Peter for a wonderful holidays - many happy memories made.
A Little Piece of Heaven in the Algarve
A family group of 3 generations, we have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at Casa Fraqueza. This beautiful villa is located in the heart of the Portuguese countryside with wonderful views across the valley. The villa is in an ideal location, close to a number of small towns, beaches and theme parks, all within a 15 - 20 mins drive.
On arrival, we were given such a warm welcome by Peter and Linda who are exceptional hosts, extremely friendly and always on hand to offer recommendations for local places to eat and visit. They are truly a genuine and sincere couple who we now consider our friends.
The extensive welcome pack, the best by far of any we’ve ever had, contained good quality produce and offered everything that you would require for the first few days without having to rush out to the supermarkets. We took advantage of the optional BBQ and found that once again the meat was of best quality and all accompanying salads, cheeses, pickles and desserts were delicious. Included with the BBQ were good quality wines and cold beers. Linda’s homemade bolognese was available for the children, again superb and went down a treat.
The spacious hilltop villa is set in the most beautiful gardens. It is furnished to an exceptionally high standard, immaculately clean and feels like a home from home (could live there for ever!!!!) A really good sized kitchen is equipped with every gadget imaginable. I cooked a full Sunday lunch with ease as every utensil I needed was there.
Both the adult and children’s pools and all paths are cleaned daily. For sun worshippers, there are plenty of comfortable sun beds and parasols and to relax around the pool a number of tables, chairs, double swing seat and a pool side bar, which was extensively used for afternoon 'happy hours'.
The sports equipment for the children and adults again was superb. Peter and Linda encouraged us to use the in-season fruit from the orange and lime trees and salad vegetables from their garden. This was such a treat. The highlight for the children was undoubtedly the feeding of the chickens and guinea pigs in the pet garden. Something they are still talking about.
A fabulous holiday in a stunning 5 star villa, topped off with beautiful and genuine owners, what more could you possibly want from your holiday. Thank you Peter and Linda, we will be back xxx
Can’t recommend this villa highly enough, if there was a 10 star rating that’s what I would give it!!!!
Perfect return visit....
We visited Casa fraqueza 5 years ago and vowed to return as we had such a good time. We returned this year and were not disappointed. The place is spotless, every detail is considered, not just the obvious things like clean bedding and towels, but every little detail, including an excellent welcome pack which when travelling with 4 children avoided the need to visit the supermarket for at least 24 Hours.... the pool is amazing and the grounds of the villa are maintained to a luxury standard with trees and plants adding to the beauty of the villa. The hosts, Pete and Linda obviously take pride in their accommodation and want you to be happy, which we were extremely! Hesitate to recommend this place as don’t want it to get booked up so we can’t go again! 😂� love it!
Nearest beach Carvoeiro 10 mins by car, hundreds of other beaches all very close, our particular stretch of coastline is dramatically beautiful, certainly the best in the Algarve and contains probably the best clifftop walks to be had anywhere in the world.
Faro airport 35 mins by car. Car hire essential, we can recommend local car hire companies in Faro that are much cheaper than the big high street names.
1km to Silves Gare, this tiny village has no church or library but has seven bars! 4km to the larger city of Silves, 4km Lagoa, 10km Carvoeiro, 300 metres to one of the best restaurants in the Algarve, the famous O'Barradas, especially for fish and veal and huge selection of affordable wine, top quality dining at UK pub prices. A host of other restaurants some ridiculously cheap for example a 3 course meal with half a litre of wine & coffee included for 8.50 euros,many within a 10 minute drive.
Free fabulous welcome pack, minimum contents are tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread, butter, ham, cheese, jam, croissants, lemonade, wine, beer, chocolate, crisps, eggs, bacon, baked beans, tomatoes, cereal, orange juice, apple juice and much more, all the ingredients are top quality and you should have no need to rush to the shops or restaurants, just chill out and enjoy. We tick more boxes than anyone else in the same locality and price range, guaranteed.
