Enveloped in golden beaches, wetlands and endless miles of stone pine forests, Villa Silvino is in the heart of the thriving Algarve, on one of the most exclusive resorts in the country!
The home is set over two floors. On the ground floor you enter into a spacious living area with comfortable sofas in front of the large TV and an adjoining dining table. The fully-equipped, fitted kitchen has a modern design, plenty of surface space and all the latest mod cons. There's even a breakfast bar to one end. Both of these rooms have direct access to the exquisite garden. On the first floor there is an additional living area, with a second TV and sofa, with two separate, utterly sublime balconies, complete with outdoor seating in a very relaxed environment.
There are four magnificent bedrooms, two doubles on the ground floor and one double and one twin on the first floor. One bedroom enjoys lovely views of the golf course, while the other has direct access to the pool terrace via large patio doors. On the first floor are the remaining two bedrooms, both equally as elegant and charming, with one overlooking the pool. All four have magnificent ensuite bathrooms. With facilities ranging from a fantastic walk-in shower, to a soothing bath tub, you'll truly enjoy the luxurious offerings of Villa Silvino. There is also a guest WC on the ground floor.
Outside, you will find a myriad of fantastic facilities. Immediately through the patio doors you enter a wondrous terrace area, with a range of comfortable outdoor seating nestled around a coffee table, making the perfect spot for a morning coffee, a group cocktail party or a relaxed glass of wine in the evening, all whilst overlooking the magnificent private pool! The huge, heated swimming pool goes up to 2m deep, so you can practice your shallow dives as well as relax in the soothing warmth of the sun and the water. Surrounded by comfortable sun loungers, whether you want to join in the fun and games, hop in to cool off every now and then or simply watch from afar, you'll find everything you need in the spacious garden. There's even a dining table for a sublime alfresco meal.

Once an expanse of pine forests and empty beaches, Vale de Lobo has been transformed into the height of luxury over the last 50 years. The first of the three corners of what is now Algarve's Golden Triangle, Vale do Lobo was among the first tourist resorts ever to be built in Portugal, and indeed is the site of the first five-star hotel in the Algarve!
Of course, with two 18-hole championship golf courses, the Royal and the Ocean, Vale de Lobo is the dream destination for any aspiring golfer. So fantastic are the facilities, the resort hosted the Portuguese Open in 2002 and 2003! Indeed, across the country of Portugal, there are 14 of the world's top 100 best golf courses, making it the perfect destination for those who enjoy a day out on the course.
Outside of golf, the Algarve is an excellent destination for other hobbyists. With a vast coastline that meets the powerful Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is a true paradise for the keen surfer, or indeed even those looking to try if for the first time, with plenty of surfing schools all along the calmer sections of the coast. And even for those less enamoured with surfing, the beaches of Portgual are well worth a visit for their beautifully clear waters
The Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal, is famous for its picturesque scenes of vast blue skies casting a warming glow on the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, with untouched bays framed by jagged Limestone rocks at every turn. While the southern coast caters to the every need of its visitors, to the West and the rugged interior the land remains largely untouched, with less development and endless intersecting of historic villages, hilltop castles and beautiful churches. The Algarviana hiking trail is an excellent day out for an active group.
Portugal itself is a small, fascinating country at the most Western point of mainland Europe. The capital, Lisbon, is known for its lively nightlife, with endless bars and clubs full of fun-loving locals and tourists alike, but also has plenty of fascinating history (check out Belem, jam-packed with monuments!) and undulating terrain, famously termed the ‘city of the seven hills'. From Lisbon, it is very quick to travel by the domestic high-speed train line to the city of Loule, which will connect you fairly quickly to Villa Silvino.
