Characterful Cottage and Separate Guest Annex With Views in Silves, Algarve


Characterful Cottage and Separate Guest Annex With Views for sale in Silves, Algarve


This lovingly restored village property offers a 2-bedroom home plus a 1-bedroom guest cottage built around a charming courtyard with a plunge pool. There is plenty of space to relax outside as well as a roof terrace with spectacular views over the countryside to the mountains beyond.  Both cottages boast traditional features such as vaulted ceilings with wood beams, Santa Catarina tile floors and beautiful wooden windows and doors.

Located in an elevated position on a peaceful ridge with gorgeous views, this charming home is only 10 minutes from the medieval town of Silves with its riverfront walks, castle, and variety of restaurants and coffee shops.

There is also the opportunity to purchase a piece of land just a short walk from the property, which would be ideal for growing vegetables or just relaxing in nature.

Main house

The front door with pretty cottage pane windows opens to the open-plan living space.  The eat-in kitchen has an electric oven and gas hob, plus space for a small table for casual dining. An arch from here opens to a cosy lounge with wood-burner for cooler winter evenings. Next to the lounge is a dining room (this used to be a second bedroom) and a spacious shower room. To the other side of the house is another bedroom with an en-suite shower room, as well as access to a small attic for storage. 

Guest cottage

Across the courtyard is a self-contained 1-bedroom guest cottage. The front door opens to a kitchen and open-plan living room with lovely views north to the hills.  The living room has a wood stove plus air-conditioning.  The bedroom has a window facing south and an en-suite shower room.

Stylish wood gates close the courtyard from the road, creating a lovely, secluded space for al-fresco dining or just relaxing outside.  Retractable awnings provide extra shade in summer, and the roof terrace is a lovely spot from which to enjoy the panoramic views.  There are two store rooms plus a covered area to store firewood.  There is parking on the road, or if you prefer, the wood gates open so that you can park a car inside the courtyard.

This character home is situated between Silves with its medieval castle and the market town of São Bartolomeu de Messines. It is about 10 minutes to either, with daily markets, shops, cafés and restaurants. This is a lovely area for walking, hiking and cycling. The coast and beaches are only 18km and Faro airport can be reached in 45 minutes. The Nobel international school is 25 minutes drive or the bus collects in Silves, and the German and Dutch international schools are 15 minutes away.
