Overview

About the property

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 !

Wonderful property that delivered on all our needs

  • 5 of 5

A stunning traditional villa with wonderful views and a lovely flow throughout the villa. Ideal for a family getaway for some special moments. Beautiful gardens, great pool, and a fantastic terrace with sea views to enjoy lunch or supper in the shade. We enjoyed chilling out at night watching a movie in the tv room - a great way to end a perfect day in the sun.

A beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed two weeks in this lovely villa in July 2017. We are very pleased with our stay. It was a beautiful house, big garden with nice lawn and big nice pool. We were 8 people, 4 children and 4 adults and that was a perfect fit. There is some traffic on the way down to the beach, but after a few hundred meters you reach a path that is nice to follow. Many nice trails if you like jogging, both east and west. To the lighthouse you see from the balcony in the evening it is about 4.5 km along the sea, a fabulous trip.

We recommend traveling to this place, as we ourselves had a fabulous holiday.

A lovely, spacious house

  • 5 of 5

The house is well kept and equipped, traditional yet comfortable. The pool and garden are huge. It is a 15 minute walk to two beaches and a two minute walk to two restaurants.

5 Sterne Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Sehr stilvolles Haus mit herrlicher Terrasse, seehr viel Platz und einem XL Pool.

herrliche Rundumsicht, gepflegte Gartenanlage.

Ideal , um sich zu erholen, und trotzdem inmitten aller Algarve Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Auto wird allerdings unbedingt benötigt ....

Fast schade, dass das Wetter so gut war, dass wir innen nur die Küche und die Schlafzimmer benötigt haben.

Das Haus war jeden Euro wert!

Traumhafte Villa in Strandnähe

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche mit unseren 3 Kindern in der Quinta do Silencio verbracht. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, sehr geräumig, der Pool ist ein Traum, der Meerblick von der Veranda unvergesslich. Mehrere Strände sind in unmittelbarer Umgebung (man braucht am besten ein Mietauto). Sehr angenehm war die Reinigung während der Woche, überhaupt waren alle sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Wir haben uns wirklich sehr wohl gefühlt und möchten mit Sicherheit wieder kommen.

Das Haus kann man uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen.

Urlaub in einer Traumvilla

  • 5 of 5

Wir (6 Erwachsene und 1 Kind) haben zwei Wochen in dieser Traumvilla verbracht und der Zustand entspricht wirklich der Beschreibung. Das Haus ist sehr gut konzipiert, sehr großzügig. Selbst in der Küche können mehrere Personen werken. Die Waschküche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und die Wäsche kann problemlos getrocknet werden. Die Terrasse ist so schön, dass man gar keine Lust mehr hat, irgendwohin essen zu gehen. Von der Terrasse aus kann man auch sehr gut auf schwimmende Kinder aufpassen. Im August waren die Strände so überlaufen, dass wir meistens im Pool geschwommen sind und gespielt haben. Es war einfach traumhaft schön.

Aufgrund der Lage ist es ratsam einen Mietwagen oder ein eigenes Auto zu haben. Genügend Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind vorhanden: Aldi, Intermarché, Apolinaria (sehr exklusiv und teuer) und Pingo Doce (sehr günstiges einheimisches Einkaufsgeschäft).

Der Eigentümer Jean-Pierre mit seiner Frau sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Bei Rückfragen stehen sie stets zur Verfügung.

Celestine – die Reinemachefrau – ist sehr lieb und freundlich. Ganz viele Grüße an sie und ihren Sohn.

Die Abwicklung verlief problemlos. Es war unsere erste Erfahrung über FeWo-direkt und wir wurden nicht enttäuscht. Sehr guter Kontakt mit Magui.

Nous (6 adultes et 1 enfant) avons passé deux semaines dans cette villa de rêve et l’état des lieux et l’équipement correspond tout à fait au descriptif sur internet. La maison est très bien conçue, très spacieuse. Même dans la cuisine plusieurs personnes peuvent s’y tenir en même temps. La buanderie est très bien équipée et le linge peut être séché facilement. La terrasse est si belle que vous n’avez même plus envie d'aller manger quelque part ailleurs. De la terrasse, vous pouvez aussi très bien surveiller les enfants qui se baignent. En Août, les plages étaient tellement bondées que nous sommes restés le plus souvent à jouer et à nous baigner dans la piscine. C’était tout simplement formidable.

En raison de l'emplacement, il est conseillé d'avoir une voiture de location ou personnelle. De nombreux magasins sont situés à quelques kilomètres : Aldi, Intermarché, Apolinaria (très exclusif et cher) et Pingo Doce (magasin local très intéressant).

Le propriétaire Jean-Pierre et sa femme sont très sympathiques et serviables. Pour toute question, ils sont toujours disponibles.

Celestine - la femme de ménage - est très agréable et gentille. Nos meilleures salutations à elle et son fils.
