Property description

Situated in Silves, on the banks of the dam, this 17-hectare farmhouse is set in an unspoilt natural environment of breathtaking beauty.

The property consists of two houses: the main or family house and the guest house.

The family house, on one level, was built about 40 years ago and meets high quality standards. It has a gross private area of 192m 2 and is well designed. It has a spacious living space, consisting of a living room with fireplace and dining room, a separate kitchen, 5 large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. An attic space, currently unused, could be converted into additional space.
A large covered terrace surrounds the whole house and offers a beautiful view over the garden and the dam, and the surrounding land, which slopes gently down to the dam, planted with fruit trees.

The guesthouse, situated on the banks of the dam, consists of 2 independent floors, for a total of 200m². Each floor has 4 bedrooms, bathrooms, a living room, a dining room with fireplace and a kitchen. So that you can also make the most of the outside spaces and the magnificent views, a large terrace, a barbecue and a swimming pool area await you.

But this fantastic property has even more to offer!

An old alembic converted into an independent living space as well as a warehouse for storing agricultural equipment are also a plus.

Incredible location, only 15 minutes from the medieval town of Silves and 30 minutes from the most beautiful beaches of the Algarve, this is a rare opportunity.

Silves is an historic and charming town, which was originally the former capital of the Algarve. Under the Moors (9th-12th centuries), Silves was an important defensive stronghold and commercial centre, with boats going down the River Arade and crossing North Africa.

Today Silves is peaceful, without haste and the marks of its illustrious past can be seen in the four corners of the city, highlighting the imposing red brick castle, the impregnable city walls and the Gothic cathedral, built on the site of a magnificent mosque. For visitors, Silves is a charming city to explore and get to know, and has a clearly Portuguese atmosphere, with outdoor cafes, cobbled streets and a relaxed pace of life with all the facilities.

Along with its rich history and fascinating attractions, Silves has a scenic location, situated along the banks of the slow flowing Arade River and within the rolling hills of the Algarve countryside.

Just 20 minutes from the beautiful Algarve coast with its wonderful beaches, crystal clear waters and majestic cliffs, as well as the fishing villages of Alvor, Ferragudo and Carvoeiro, the spas of Monchique, Portimão, Lagos (the town of the discoveries) and also Sagres, Silves has much to offer the locals and visitors.

Faro airport is only 45 minutes away. Lisbon and Seville are approximately the same distance from Silves (2H30).
