We had an excellent few days at Casa das Oliveiras. If you want a peaceful and very beautiful little hideaway, then this a good place to stay. This B&B is off the beaten track but the directions for getting there are very good and straightforward. You need a car to get to places, but we had no difficulty driving into Silves each day - it only takes a few minutes. The owners [a British and Angolan couple] are hospitable and attentive with an excellent knowledge of the local area - all their recommendations for restaurants and where to go were spot on. We loved our room. It was not air-conditioned but felt cool, even in the heat of early September, and the fan was efficient and silent at night. The en-suite was as spotless as the room and we were provided with chilled mineral water every night. The patio area is beautiful, with a couple of shady olive trees to keep you out of the sun if you want to be - and there are recliners and chairs for everybody. The swimming pool was spotless. Breakfast was served outside our room each morning - cereals, fruit juice, fresh bread, cheese and preserves and excellent tea and coffee. Silves is a stunning Moorish town built on a hill - one of the most remarkable places to visit in the Algarve with superb inexpensive restaurants. We are crazy about Portugal and this was a gem of a find.

We stayed at Casa das Oliveiras for a few days in July 2012. On the countryside, - but near beaches, good restaurants and typical villages of Algarve , you've got it all! Bill and Isa, the couple running the place, they're just so nice! Bill's knowledge about the area, his helpfulness,- Isa's smile, her kindness, and her coffe in the morning...,a visit here, it's worth it!

We stayed three nights at this guest house, on a trip to Portugal from New Zealand, and were warmly welcomed by Bill and Isa. We had a large room with our own little terrace and a huge shower in the bathroom, which was a welcome change. The hosts are really wonderful and very knowledgeable about places to visit, restaurants etc. Breakfast was included in the price and there was always plenty to eat. The added bonus of a little guest kitchen was great, as it is a 6km drive to Silves village, and as the weather was not great, we did cook two of the nights, which was really nice and rare thing to be able to do on a three month trip to Europe. Lovely people, quiet and comfortable surroundings and a nice part of the Algarve from which to do day trips. We would definitely stay again if we were ever in the Algarve. Sadly we couldn't make use of the pool as the weather was cold and wet almost the whole time we were there, but it would be a great bonus in the summer.

Room Tip: We had room 3 which is apparently one of the larger rooms, with its own terrace. Very comfortable and quiet.

We only stayed one night so opted for the small room, which offered good value. The hosts were very friendly, and their local knowledge greatly appreciated. The small kitchen was handy to make tea in the evening, and a lovely breakfast was served in the morning.

We have recently spent 2 nights at Casa das Oliviras and found it to be a lovely place to stay. The situation is delightful amid orange groves and the terrace and pool are most welcome on hot sunny afternoons. We also liked being able to use the small kitchen to make snacks and drinks.
Bill and his wife are so friendly and helpful and have lots of local knowledge. We had 2 great meals out in Silves at restaurants recommended by Bill which didn't break the bank.
Breakfast was very good with lovely bread rolls, good coffee, fruit and cheese and was served on the terrace where we could hear and see the local birdlife.
We slept well and although there was no air con in our room it didn't matter because we could leave our window open but with the flyscreen closed and we were cool and not bothered by insects.
I was surprised to both hear and see the autoroute from the terrace but it is a good distance away and doesn't really detract from the peaceful ambience of des Oliveiras. We would certainly go back again.

Room Tip: The larger double rooms are good value and some open on to the terrace. The smaller, cheaper double is fine for a short stay.
