WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY MORE BOOKINGS FOR THIS YEAR. WE ARE BUILDING TWO EXTRA APARTMENTS! SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
The villa is located 2km from the medieval town of Silves. Set on a rural hillside overlooking the river Arade and surrounded by 5 acres of land, it commands some of the most stunning views in the Algarve. And the sea is just a 20-minute drive away.
Villa Rocha Branca, set in its own orange grove surrounded by a variety of fruit trees and grapevines, is far from any neighbours yet a short drive to all amenities. It has just been fully refurbished to our own very high quality standards. The main living space is bright, spacious and comfortable with an open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge area.
There are two double bedrooms: the beautifully decorated master bedroom with luxurious bed and headboard, and an equally large second bedroom with a super king-size bed that can be separated into two comfortable singles, depending on your requirements. In addition one of the two large sofas in the living area is also a sprung sofa bed. The bathroom has modern fittings and a spacious walk in shower.
For those that enjoy cooking the kitchen is fully equipped with induction hob and stylish finish (the well-stocked supermarket is just a 5minute drive away). If you’d prefer to eat out we provide a detailed guide to all the best bars and restaurants in town as well as recommendations by previous guests who also advise on fun places to visit and their favourite beaches.
Outside on the terrace we have beautiful cushioned rattan garden furniture with a dining table for eating al fresco. There is also a huge garden parasol to protect you from the sun.
Zugang für Gäste
The view from the terrace affords extensive views of the 'Fruit Garden of the Algarve’ where all the birds of the delta fly by – about 80 different species, while a short walk to the highest point of the property reveals the full extent of the surrounding countryside in all its spectacular glory.
Just in front of the villa there is an irrigation canal that waters the surrounding citrus groves, and there’s a public footpath running alongside the river which meanders through the sublime and unique beauty of the surrounding landscape.
We provide two bicycles which guests are very welcome to use and some equipment for the beach too: blanket, seats, umbrella, buckets and spades, bat and balls.
There is a small boat marina beyond the villa where it is possible to rent a kayak or have a beer in the bar.

As there are no neighbours in close proximity we won't ask you to be quiet ;-)
But we will ask you to respect the environment and the nature.
For this reason you will have to recycle your waste and bring it to the recycling bins located behind the supermarket.
