About Scott Gourlay
I live in the Cotswolds with my wife, 3 children and our pet labradoodle. We have spent most summer holidays in Portugal whilst our children were small and this house has been a great place to relax with the family.
Why Scott Gourlay chose Silves
My mother bought this house over 25 years ago , whilst she was working in Portugal. It was a bit of a restoration project. When she bought it the house was half derelict and had no bathroom or kitchen. The current lounge was a barn and the Kitchen a chicken house. We love the countryside around this area and feel you are far enough away from the crowds to really relax but at the same time you can get to the coast in 20 mins for a day out at a great beach or attraction.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
This property is different to many properties you will find along the Algarve. It is a genuine Portuguese farmhouse which has a rustic look and feel. The house has retained some of it's original Portuguese charm , with thick walls , cane roofs and old tiles . The old walled garden is really special, tiled paths meander around the mature plants and tree's. There are lots of shady spots to sit and while away your day. The large pool area is also lovely and enclosed within another part of the garden.

I thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing holiday with my children and grandchildren in this beautiful villa situated in a quite village in the Algarve
Thank you . I am glad you enjoyed your holiday with all your family.
Many thanks Scott
Mooi maar achterstallig onderhoud en het was bij aankomst gewoon niet schoongemaakt, echt slecht.
Het is een typisch oude Portugese boerderij.
Met mooie oude details afgewerkt.
Tot zover de pluspunten.
Bij aankomst was er niet schoongemaakt mogelijk al weken niet.
Het rook er muf en oa de keuken was gewoon erg smerig.
De algehele indruk is dat er achterstallig onderhoud is.
Ook beste wel redelijk veel geluid van de autoweg waar we op de website geen melding van zien
Al met al het geheel kan wel een opknapbeurt gebruiken.
The nearest beaches are 20 to 30 minutes drive from the villa.
Praia de Castello & Everisto are a couple of the nearest beaches ,small sandy bays with life guards , concessions and beach restaurants
Faro Airport 45 mins drive
Lisbon Airport 2 hrs drive
Messines 8 km
Paderne 8 km
