Located on the edge of the old town with its cobblestone streets, cafés and restaurants, this 3rd floor apartment enjoys views across the roof tops to the old city walls and hills beyond. Just steps from the municipal produce and fish market (open daily), as well as the river, swimming/fitness complex and parks, this is a lovely location for year-round living or a lock-up and leave holiday home.
Stairs from the entrance lobby lead up to the apartment. The front door opens to an entrance hall with stylish built-in cupboards with Moorish motif. Off the entrance hall is the spacious living room with sliding doors onto a balcony terrace with views east over the town to the surrounding hills. This is a lovely spot to enjoy your morning coffee watching the town come awake on the streets below. The living room also benefits from a wood-burning fireplace and a wall of built-in cupboards with display shelves provide more storage space. The kitchen has marble counter-tops, wood cupboards and a sliding door to let in lots of light as well as views of the old city walls and Monchique mountains in the distance.
A sliding door from the living area opens to a corridor leading to the 2 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms. All bedrooms have wood parquet-style floors. Three of the bedrooms have views north over the old town to the cathedral and one has a south-facing window. Two of the bedrooms have built-in cupboards and the master bedroom has a private balcony terrace. There are two bathrooms, one with a bath and one with a shower.
Conveniently located in the heart of the town, walking distance to the castle, cathedral and other attractions, as well as cafés and restaurants. Silves has a daily produce and fish market, a health centre, fitness centre with public swimming pool and exercise classes and a wide variety of shops, banks and other services. It is only 20 minutes from beaches, less than 10 minutes to Silves golf and 45 minutes drive from Faro airport.
