Welcome to Sunny Silves and our recently renovated townhouse! Enjoy the peace of a quiet garden with old stone walls and fruit trees. Explore a charming historic town on your doorstep. Nature walks, in the hills, begin a kilometer away. To the South a short 15 km drive brings you to some beautiful beaches, cliffs and villages.

(If this house is unavailable you may want to look at my other house which shares the same garden: airbnb.com/h/sun-in-the-city)

The space
The property consists of 2 adjoining town houses in the centre of Silves.

Your house is at the back next to the garden. To access the house you walk from the street along a common courtyard.

You have a private terrace at the back of your house next to the garden. The courtyard and garden are shared.

It is a unique combination. You are a few hundred meters from centre of town but can enjoy the green and peace of a private garden.

Guest access
Your private space includes the house itself (hall, 2 bedrooms, bathroom, living area with open kitchen, laundry space) as well as a terrace.
You can also make yourself at home in the common area including the courtyard and garden.

Other things to note
No air conditioning but thick walls which give a good isolation.

In the summer I find the temperature pleasant inside. There are electric fans in the bedrooms if it is too hot. In the winter the days are often sunny but the evenings can get cooler. In the living room there is a wood burner and a portable modern gas heater (if you want it) as well as electric radiators in the bedrooms.

The property is a work in progress and by the time you arrive there may be further improvements to the garden.

There are two bedrooms, the smaller one has a small window.

I also host Jeep Safaris and River Cruises from Silves to explore the local countryside. See www.silvestours.com

Location

Silves, Faro, Portugal

Thyl’s home is located in Silves, Faro, Portugal.
Silves is a small historic town on a hill, once it was the moorish capital of the Algarve.
Above is a castle and below the Arade river. There are many charming cafes and restaurants but the city is calm compared to the coast.

15 km to the South there is a beautiful coastline with cliffs, beaches and little villages.

Directly north begin the foothills of the Sierra de Monchique.

Nearest small shop and café about 100 meters.
Nearest large supermarket within 800 meters.

Hello. I am Thyl (pronounced "Teel"). In 2017 I moved to live in Silves, Portugal. I have always loved this warm cosy place and the friendly relaxed people. I am an artist painter and enjoy the sunny hills and seascapes with their vivid colours. Belgian by nationality, but of mixed origin, I can help you in English, French, Dutch and Portuguese. Happy to respect your privacy but also keen to help and share my local knowledge when needed.
