About Quinta Pedra | Large family home

This characteristic and attractive holiday villa, renovated under architecture with an eye for the Portuguese atmosphere in combination with contemporary luxury and comfort, is located between Silves and Messines at the foot of the Cuckoo Rock. Quinta Pedra is surrounded by more than eight thousand square meters of private land with a tropical garden and orchard with fruit and olive trees. Complete privacy is therefore optimally guaranteed here. The villa can accommodate up to twelve / fourteen people and has a private swimming pool.

The attractive quinta is equipped with every comfort and offers, among other things, an attractive living room with fireplace, a cozy large dining table and a comfortable sitting area, free WiFi, DVD and CD player, satellite TV, kitchen with modern appliances, cooking utensils, crockery - and glassware, outdoor kitchen with hot and cold water, barbeque, double fridge and cooking utensils, a double bedroom with fireplace and private bathroom, a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom, a quadruple bedroom (bunk bed) with loft (double bed) and a private bathroom, two double bedrooms with a shared bathroom in the adjacent apartment, two movable cots, terraces with comfortable seating areas and sunbeds, swimming pool of forty square meters with sunbeds and outdoor shower, patio with lounge area, terrace with a large dining table, veranda with large lounger and seating area and a children's playground with grass and play equipment.

In the valley in which Quinta Pedra is located, green hills and orange orange plantations color the landscape. Silves is also located here, once the Moorish capital of the Algarve. The castle that towers above the white town, which is magically illuminated at night, is a reminder of that time. Silves has an attractive streetscape with countless shops, restaurants and bars. Not far from Silves is the typical Portuguese town of Messines, with an authentic center with sunny terraces and atmospheric cafes. The famous beaches of the Algarve are fifteen kilometers from the quinta. You can choose the busy beach of, for example, Portimão with the trendy Aqua Beach Club, or one of the many quiet beaches. Faro airport is fifty kilometers away.

The relaxed, rural atmosphere is just one of the attractive aspects of staying at Quinta Pedra. Beautiful hiking trails have been set out in the immediate vicinity and mountain bikers will also get their money's worth here. Quinta Pedra is a perfect base for tourist trips or sports such as golf, tennis, horse riding, sailing and jet skiing.

Lovely villa. We stayed as a party of 9, it has everything you need should it be a short or long stay. Our host was excellent and very helpful with the information given and the questions we asked. Beautifully presented in an idilic location. A quiet private retreat.

Spacious house

Lovely spacious house, nice pool, handy that there is a separate kind of house if you are with several families, some stairs but certainly safe for young children, in the evenings have a drink in the garden or in the veranda, it is a house with many relax and lounge areas, excellent service from the hostess, everything has been thought of.

Toby van de Kooij, Oegstgeest 19 September 2022

In a word fantastic! We were there with 6 adults and 4 children. Everyone loved the house and everything about it. Lovely house with all the trimmings and the pool was great. Our arrival and departure went very smoothly and pleasantly, thanks to hostess Marrion. The whole party said unanimously that they would like to go here again. Too bad it's over.

Sehr zu empfehlen!

Hallo! Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in der Villa Quinta Pedra. Der Garten ist wirklich herrlich, die Villa liegt sehr ruhig mitten im Hügelleand von Silves. Es fehlen ein paar Kleinigkeiten, wie Fön, mobiler Sonnenschirm und in der Küche Auflauf-und Backform. Die Betreuung durch Marrion war SUPER, sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Auch die Putzfrau Anna war sehr freundlich und zuverlässig. Großes Lob!!! Also sehr zu empfehlen!

Great stay

We had a fantastic holiday in the Algarve and that was partly due to the beautiful villa Quinta Pedra. We are my husband and I, our 2 children with their partners and our 2 grandchildren aged 3 and 1. The reception was most cordial. There was a generous food package available for basic necessities. We did not miss anything, absolutely nothing. The well-equipped kitchen met everything. We all love to cook and we also love good food. Well we did there. We also made good use of the outdoor kitchen. And then enjoy everything at the long table under the olive trees with a beautiful view. You don't want to leave The little ones also had a great time. The pool was very popular. Nice that it could be closed. The water was still a bit cold in April, but that didn't spoil the fun. Everything looked very neat and well maintained. The mail contact with the representative of Portugalvillas was also very pleasant. If you had any questions, you got an answer right away. All in all it was a great stay and we will definitely book again for next year.

Highly recommended!

A truly lovely house, which feels very personal. In addition to excellent bedrooms and special bathrooms, the swimming pool with all the sun loungers, the huge outdoor table under the olive trees, the very well-equipped kitchen and all the different outdoor seating areas with and without shade were the highlights for us. We also found the very extensive starter package up to and including first drinks, fruit, bread, coffee, etc. particularly sympathetic! We (7 adults and two children of one and a half years old) have enjoyed 1000%. There were some minor comments afterwards that were listened to by our friendly contact person Marrion. In the house and garden there are many stairs/steps, but the one and a half year old quickly learned to deal with them. If you don't want your baby/child in the room as parents, you have to be creative. As far as we are concerned, the house is highly recommended!

Fam. van den Broek, 26 November 2018
So highly recommended!

Quinta Pedra is in one word: great! A beautiful location, ideally situated for the highways to Lisbon and the coast. Very quiet location, only local traffic passing by. Lots of outdoor space. Nice unobstructed view. Beautiful Silves is a 10-minute drive away. House is nicely decorated, very tasteful bathrooms. The kitchen is equipped in such a way that you can easily put a great 3-course dinner on the table. Sufficient kitchenware is available. We were there in winter and even then the house is a must. Heated by underfloor heating in the bathrooms and a fireplace in the living room. For us this was enough. We were received wonderfully by the Dutch owner of the house including a lot of delicious refreshments. So highly recommended!
