Holiday Accommodation Details

A child friendly 5 bedroom villa with views of the river and in a protected reserve is ideal for multiple families taking a holiday or celebrating a special occasion. The Algarve River House villa is near the historical town of Silves, only 20 minutes from some of the best beaches in Europe and 5 minutes from the local shops and market. A stylish affordable luxury villa that sleeps up to 10 guests and 4 babies comfortably.

A gorgeous country retreat with great outdoor activities that has river and hill views stretching for miles and comes with large terraces and a private swimming pool. Avril manages the villa for me and will meet and greet you on the day and help you settle in.

The villa has peaceful views of the hills in Messines near the historical town of Silves where you can explore one of the best preserved Moorish fortifications in Portugal.  The spacious swimming pool terrace has comfortable sun lounges for sun bathing and it is the perfect location to wait for the beautiful sunset when the shepherd will pass with his flock of sheep or to spend the evening on the comfortable sun lounges stargazing.

Inside, you'll find large comfortable bedrooms with fresh white linen and windows framed with lovely views of the countryside. The lounge and kitchen have double height ceilings giving a sense of space and light. Modern bathrooms come with large power showers, some with double basins and all have their own hair dryers.

Kitchen Facilities and Catering Options 

The modern kitchen has a large island and is ideal for social cooking or if you prefer, the large bbq is great for outdoor cooking.  If you prefer not to cook you can arrange with Avril to have home cooked meals for the freezer delivered to the holiday villa, dishes such as Moroccan lamb, Thai pork or lemon roast chicken.  If you prefer to have a cook you can book Gill for the week or for specific days to prepare your meals.  You can view possible options you may order for the dinner menu or breakfast and lunch menu.

Outdoors

Explore the outdoors by walking or cycling along the river with our very own self guided routes that start and end at the River House or if you prefer you can walk part of the 300km Via Algarviana route when staying at the villa; for further details of this amazing walk  refer to section 8 and 9.  The villa is in a protected reserve and during your spring visits you can experience a vast variety of wildflowers.  If you would like to explore the country further afield you can book a quad bike experience with our neighbour, Hugo, who will take you out riding dams and for a true country life experience you will have the opportunity to swim in one of the natural dams.

Location

The location is rural and you don't have immediate neighbours but you can see them from the villa.  The holiday villa is in a protected nature reserve making it a very peaceful location but you are only 5 minutes away from the shops and the historical town, Silves, is only 15 minutes by car. Some of the best beaches in the Algarve, Falesia and Olhos d'Agua are only 20 minutes away.

Pool and Outdoor Play Equipment

The private pool is enclosed with a fence and the gate can be locked when the pool is not in use. The shallow step is ideal for small kids to splash about while Mum and Dad enjoy the country views from the pool martini seat.

Outdoor equipment such as the trampoline, swings and table tennis keep the children amused throughout the day. The 1.5 X 2m shallow step is ideal for small kids to splash about while Mum and Dad enjoy the country views from the pool martini seat.

Holidaying in the countryside allows the children to enjoy the fresh air and the freedom of wide open spaces.

Toddler and Baby Equipment 

For the very young we have 4 cots with linen, 2 high chairs, 2 bed guards, baby den, stair gates (top and bottom of the stair case), toys, games, toddler DVDs, night lights, changing mat, bottle steriliser, potties, 2 booster seats, blackout blind and baby monitor.

Baby Sitting Service

Avril's daughter Chloe is a quailified first aider and offers a baby sitting service. 

Payment

If you prefer not to transfer via direct debit you can pay through my HomeAway website as I have the facility to take card payments giving you additional cover.  I have been renting out the villa for more than 3 years.

Golf and Tennis Packages

My holiday suggestions 

  • The golden flag Falesia beach at Olhas da Agua is 20 mins, with life guards and water sports. A typical fishing village with promenade, shops, restaurants and cafes.
  • The Moorish town, Silves, has a castle, cistern well in the archaeological museum, a cathedral, the Cruz de Portugal & lots of shops & restaurants. The Medieval festival is held in August.
  • Alte, a typical Portuguese village is close. Find picnic tables, BBQs, cafe & restaurant at the Fonte Grande and enjoy a swim in the lovely cool waters, and under the largest Algarve waterfall, outside the town.
  • Caldas de Monchique, famous for its warm springs: enjoy lunch in the quiet square under tall shady trees. There is a pleasant walk in the forest along a stream. Visit our 
  • You will find lovely hand painted & hand made pottery at Porches Pottery housed in a beautiful traditional Algarvean Farmhouse building. The Bar Bacchus servers breakfast, light lunches and tea/coffee with home made cakes.
  • Birdlife is very intense during the migration period starting from September as Sagras is on the bird migratory path and just about every Western European bird of prey can been seen some time during the autumn. See the Algarve bird chart.
