The House

Description

Casa da Lila, in the historic town of Silves, is at first sight a modest, typical Portuguese town house, but behind the front door a true gem is hidden. The town house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms and has recently been completely rebuilt and is as it were a completely new house in a “worn” jacket. Casa da Lila is an ideal holiday home for six people, but because of the open stairs and terraces less suitable for young children.

The town house, situated in a charming cobbled street occupied mainly by Portuguese, offers a superb view from three levels over Silves and surrounding area. On sunny days even Monchique and Foia, the highest point of the Algarve, can be seen from the highest terrace.

The ground floor consists of a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a living room with log burner and kitchen with terrace, a great place to have breakfast, lunch and dinner. One level down, we find yet another spacious bedroom and a bathroom with rain shower. The comfortable master bedroom, equipped with open bathroom including free-standing bath, a rain shower and separate toilet, is located on the highest level. The master bedroom has direct access to the terrace with lounge sofa, outdoor shower and ‘outdoor kitchen’ with sink, refrigerator and washing machine. The garden, complete with wooden deck, is equipped with plunge pool (3.80m x 2.00m) and an outdoor shower.

The stylish and very nicely decorated interior has been compiled with the utmost care. Notable elements include the handmade Portuguese tiles and vintage furniture from top designers. Consideration was also given to modern technology: the house and the outdoor areas feature fast and powerful Wi-Fi, all bedrooms have a SMART-TV and the living room has IP TV (internet television) so you do not have to miss your favourite TV programs. Also, you have access to the Raumfeld sound bar so you can enjoy your holidays with your favourite music. Thanks to the air conditioning, wood burner and electric floor heating throughout the house, Casa da Lila makes for a comfortable stay in all seasons.

Casa da Lila is a perfect destination for smaller groups who want to venture out during the day to explore all the beauty the Algarve has to offer, and to enjoy the sun set and spectacular views in the evening from one of the three terraces, holding a good glass of wine.

Casa da Lila is officially registered for holiday rentals in the town of Silves. It officially fulfils the strict building and fire safety regulations required to obtain the so-called “Alojamento Local” status.
