Vila Dria: modern luxury in the best part of the Algarve

  • 10 Guests

  • 5 Bathrooms

Vila Dria is located on a hill surrounded by orange groves near the Portuguese town of Silves. The house, dating from the 1990s, was completely renovated in 2017 and now shines in new splendor. Two separate buildings, one of them L-shaped, frame the terrace with pool on three sides. The white of the outer facades is also found inside. Large windows, high ceilings, connected rooms and the minimalist furnishing in an elegant and timeless design create an airy and light ambiance. The spacious house offers space for up to ten people. There is a living, dining and cooking area, as well as two suites and three double bedrooms each with a private bathroom. When the weather is fine, the terrace becomes the second living room with large pool, outdoor kitchen, dining area and lounge corner. Here you could spend the whole day: dreaming in the deck chair, cooling in the pool, cooking under the open sky, enjoying sunsets and starry sky. The house offers plenty of space for common activities as well as sufficient room for privacy, which makes it perfect for a family holiday (also for 2 families). The view extends far over the hilly landscape and is particularly beautiful at sunset. Silves with its old town, historical castle and 12th-century cathedral, shops and restaurants, is only 7 minutes away. Portugal's best golf course (Amendoeira, 2016), and some of the Algarve's most beautiful beaches are also within easy reach. Hikers will enjoy an excursion to the spa resort Monchique and Foia: located at 905 meters it is the highest point of the Algarve, and offers spectacular views of the region.

The villa has GPS coordinates 37° 11' 35.77" North, 8° 23' 19.45" West, or also 37.193269, -8.388736 (with minus sign). Vila Dria (one L) can be found in navigation apps like Waze or Maps. Take exit 6 of the A22, even if your navigation system suggests exit 7, and cross the bridge when you arrive in Silves. This road is easier and gives you a better feel for where the villa is located with respect to Silves.

If you don't use navigation:

Leave Faro airport and follow the signs to the A22 (Lisboa, Portimão, Albufeira). Follow the A22 until exit 6, and take the N124-1 in the direction of Silves. As you approach Silves you will go through a tunnel and then go downhill and have a splendid view of Silves on your left. At the bottom of the hill turn left and go across the bridge over the river and turn right at the traffic lights. When you arrive at a roundabout, take the first exit and then go past a petrol station on your left and just after that turn right. It’s 1,3 km from the traffic lights to this right turn. Stay on this road for another 4,5 km, quite a windy road for most of the way but will then go uphill and when you reach the top you will you will see a photo of an orange on the right hand side of the road. Take this dirt road and follow it for 250 meters and the villa will be directly in front of you.
