A newly built holiday home in Vale de Lama (Odelouca - Silves) overlooking the river

Cottage for 6 persons with pool in the Algarve, in Odelouca (near Silves)

Casa da Ribeira is peacefully situated in the vale Lama Odelouca a good 3 kilometers from the historic town of Silves. From the house you have a beautiful view of the river "Rio Arade."

The location is ideal for people who want peace and privacy just outside the tourist crowds but still want to be anywhere near.

There are beautiful hiking and biking routes.

Near the house, towards the river, begins a walking and cycling route which goes to Silves, mostly along the river.
Ideal for nature lovers.

Odelouca is located in the center of the Algarve between Portimão and Silves, the most southern and sunniest province of Portugal. Far enough from tourism but very centrally located. Fifteen minutes to the port of Portimao, fifteen minutes to the picturesque beaches with impressive cliffs and half an hour to the Monchique mountains. A rental car is recommended.

The Modelo supermarket is a good 3 kilometers from our house, as well as the many restaurants of Silves.

Regional Info

Algarve, the Balcony of Europe, never really cold, and never too hot because of the ever-refreshing breezes. 300 days of sunshine per year. Spring is here on February 1, summer on April 1 and lasts until mid-november !

The Algarve has not only one of the most beautiful coasts of Europe, also the mainland has a very special atmosphere of rural tranquility. Golden yellow sandy beaches, nice rocks, mountains and green golf courses with pine trees. Hospitable people welcome you to the white villages and historic towns.

The excellent cuisine will surely tempt you, in short, you must have seen the Algarve.

South coast

The holiday home Casa da Ribeira is situated very quietly and a good 3 kilometers from Silves, 60 kilometers from Faro airport, but very central in the Algarve.

Within fifteen minutes you are in Portimao, the most modern and busiest city of the Algarve.

A bit east of Portimao, direction Lagoa you find, in our opinion, the most picturesque beaches of the south coast.

Breathtakingly beautiful, the bays, the Portuguese fishermen on the high rocks, the seagulls, the rest ...

On the south coast of the Algarve you will find, especially in summer, the touristic attractions, eg. Albufeira, Carvoeiro, Alvor, Armacao de Peira, Quarteira, Vilamoura, Porches, Tavira, Lagos, Lagoa, Loulé, Faro ...


The rugged west coast is popular for surfers. Because of beaches with high waves and wind in summer it is ideal for surfing.

It's worth to make a trip by car to Cap St Vincent, the most western point, not only of Portugal but of all Europe.

From there you can drive towards Aljezur. Leave the main road and drive along the coast  near the beach of Amado to Carrapateira

Unforgettably lovely ...

You can also continue to follow the coast northwards until you're at the height of Lisbon. This trip by car is about 300 km


Portugal has beautiful mountains, both north and in the Algarve.

The Monchique mountain lies in the extreme south of Portugal.
There you can drink water from natural sources.


The Algarve is the most popular place for golf lovers, who often plan their holiday in the autumn or winter.

The winter in Portugal can be compared with a soft spring in Belgium and especially then you see most of the golfers, because of the ideal Portuguese climate.

Not difficult, because there is a very extensive range of beautiful golf fields, from east to west.

Our house is also for rent in the winter at favorable prices
