Carvoeiro / Lagoa region Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 bedrooms, huge garden, quiet, walking distance beach & restaurants

Located just a stone throw from one of the most beautiful beaches of the Algarve (praia da Marinha), Quinta do Silencio is a property of high standing. It was designed by a renowned Portuguese architect and furnished with elegance. Its 4 bedroom-suites, and the generous proportions of every room, make it an ideal choice for large families (internal dimensions : 350 m2 / 3766 ft2). The numerous covered patios (allowing you to take your meals outside facing the sea) and terraces command unrestricted breathtaking views over the ocean.

The 1st floor (a bedroom, bathroom, separate lounge and terrace with impressive views over the sea) is of course accessible through the house itself, but also through a separate access, providing more flexible accommodation.

Outside, the house is set in a huge and mature garden (3 500 m2) with large lawn area and a 12x5 m private swimming-pool.

A character full retreat within walking distance from magnificent beaches and a several restaurants.

We have discovered Portugal more than 30 years ago and immediately felt in loved with this country and Portuguese people. We now know quite well Algarve and its treasures, such as the other regions of the country for having worked and travelled through almost whole of them. We remain at your full disposal to share our knowledge and experience, and help you to organize a pleasant stay and visit, in this beautiful and captivating country. If it is your first time in Portugal, for sure you will come back !

Oddles of Personality

  • 5 of 5

This place is serene and capacious with lots of personality with wide-ranging ocean outlook. The architecture of the property is marvellous The rooms are voluminous and bright when shutters are open.

On arrival there was a welcome basket with lots of local produce, such as bread, biscuits, fruit and a bottle of red and white wine, which was a very nice touch and appreciated.

The property was neat and tidy, and well-kept and the cleaner was friendly and polite and the owner introduced himself and was very pleasant and helpful

The grounds are plentiful and is sympathetically landscaped and luscious and the pool is perfect and there is an assortment of toys and games, including a paddling pool, which my two young children loved playing in.

I have travelled to this part of Portugal many times and I feel very comfortable and at home whenever I visit. This area has some wonderful beaches and restaurants within easy reach.

To summarise, we absolutely loved this place and our stay so much, that we simply did not want to leave. We are already planning a return.

Happy Days!!!

2 Wochen Traumurlaub! Portugal hat uns gepackt!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 2 Wochen in der großartigen Quinta do Silencio. Das Haus ist riesig (wir waren nur zu viert und hätten auch zu acht noch genug Platz gehabt), der Pool ebenfalls und die Nähe zu den schönen Stränden war auch ein großer Pluspunkt. Es ist alles vorhanden was man sich wünscht und wir würden jederzeit wieder dort Urlaub machen. Empfehlen können wir das Restaurant Pescador (nicht ganz billig aber sehr sehr lecker) und eine Bootstour zu den Grotten oder die Sunset Champagne Tour mit dem Solarboot. Danke auch an Celeste, die 3 x pro Woche klar Schiff gemacht hat und für alle Fragen offen war.

Der ideale Ort um abseits vom touristischen Trubel die Sonne zu genießen und zu entspannen.

Relax in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple with two 8 and 3 year old kids. The house is beautiful, with wide luminous rooms naturally climatized. Its neat and functional architecture makes it very attractive to see and comfortable to live in. The garden and the swimmingpool are simply perfect if you are travelling with kids. Personal attending the villa are very polite and proffessional, keeping it clean and frequently checking everything is alright. We rent houses for our holidays e evey year and this one is, by far, the best we 've ever been in.

Algarve coast, with the Marinha beach about 1km far from the house is a paradise. We are willing to come back next summer.

Perfect stay in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay.

All adults and Children (1-3 years) really enjoyed the stay.

Nice charmful old villa, well maintained, perfect customer service.

Perfect location close to the see made it easy to mix between the beaches and the pool during day depending on age and temperature.

We had a feeling being on a peninsula since the view over the landscape and the see in several directions was very nice.

Easy to find supermarket and several nice restaurants in the surroundings.

We will recommend the house to our friends in Stockholm/Sweden and will probably come back.

  • 5 of 5

Real great place with several positive items I have never had before. Cleaning lady will come 3 times a week. Gardener is doing a great job. Contact person is very accurate and owner is a very supporting man. We have had a beatifull stay in this great palace. It is so big and you have to close a lot of doors at end of another great day. Five stars.
