Riverside/Central/Recently Renovated - Two Bedroom Flat

Our bright, 90 sq.M, air conditioned flat has excellent views of the ancient castle town of Silves, and it`s tidal river (The Arade). There`s a common terrace area above us which enhances the views.

The kitchen and bathroom have been completely renovated this year including a dishwasher, induction hob & filtered water system.

Each of the two bedrooms has double (140cm) beds and wardrobes with fabulous views of the river and beyond. There`s a desk unit in the `second` bedroom.

All our windows and balcony `French Doors` are new, with double glazing.

A new Samsung `Eco-Bubble`™ washing machine is located above the flat in our `locker room`.

You can sit on our balcony and watch the buzz of our daily Farmers Market (not on Sunday) below you. Slip down to gather your days groceries there, or at the Lidl store across the road.

About the location

You can literally `throw-a-stone` to the river, park, Farmers Market, Bus/taxi stand, restaurants (with live music), shops & ATM`s.
The river borders a 20 acre manicured town park encompassing wide walking/bicycling paths, two restaurants, a Recreational facility with indoor Olympic size pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam, excercise, yoga, rooms. Daily pool access is roughly 3€.

The jewel of Silves is the historic castle, built in the 1100`s by the Moors. It`s a 2 min. walk from us to the castle entrance and Museum. There`s numerous events held there during the summer, otherwise it`s approx. 2€ to have a self-guided tour of the fortress. The largest event is held in August named the `Medievil Festival`. This summer they celebrated the 866AD confrontation with the Vikings!

If you prefer to travel to the south coast it`s 15min. by car to a dozen amazing cove beaches including the famous Praia Marihna. We`ve attached an example photo. A bus will also take you to these beaches including Carveiero. You can buy your tickets across the street from our front door and walk a few steps to the bus stop or Taxi stand!
Aljezur beaches on the west coast is a 45 min. drive.

It`s about a mile to the Silves train station which is on the Algarve line and will take you from Faro to Portimao to Lagos. This line merges, at Tunes station, with the Express Lisbon line (Lisbon is a 2.5 hr ride).
