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 an outdoor shower.
