Description

Silves Cottage is a lovingly restored and presented 2 bedroom cottage, spread over one large floor, extremely well-located in a calm place, 8 km away of the city of Silves and 16 km from the nearest beach at Armação de Pêra. Within a orange farm with on-site full-time residents, this stunning cottage is set in a very private cluster of properties with communal pool and large orchard. Nicely fitted and equipped, with plenty of traditional decorative pieces included, a woodburner, private pátio and back yard

Silves was, during the Arab occupation between the 8th and the 12th centuries, the capital of the Algarve. Mainly due to the presence of the navigable Arade river. Silves was also a cultural center where poets and historians lived. The town’s tradition comes to life during August, when the Medieval Fair of Silves takes place in the historic center for 10 days. It attracted more than 100,000 visitors.
Silves Castle, considered the most beautiful example of Arab military architecture in the country, is the largest of the Algarve. Silves does not have a large number of hotel beds, so there is no greater influx of tourists in the high season. Its population being more or less the same throughout the year: about 7,000 inhabitants. An exception to this is the large number of motor homes. Many hundreds of these make the city their winter home.

The walls are made of red sandstone (grés de Silves) with a pisé-core and have been heavily restored in the 1940s. Protruding towers of albarra-type protect the Northern slope. After the Christian conquest, the castle served as the seat of the alcaide-mor (provincial governor) till the middle of the 16th century. Afterwards the towers were used as a prison.
