1 story house in Silves, Portugal

We live in the sunny Algarve, in the south of Portugal. We've got a backyard with a barbecue and a couple of trees. Our town is a calm place but full of history. You can also enjoy the lovely sandy beaches we have and/or go to the mountain if you wish. We are only 1 hour drive from Spain ( Andaluzia) and 2 hours from Lisbon, the capital city.
Our neighbourhood is very quiet and it is 1km away from the town and from a golf course.
We have entertainment for young people and even adults: Table tennis, bikes, MP3, etc. 
You can either fly to Faro airport or to Lisbon as we usually arrange the dates with the partner family so that we can all have a car at the airport: ours for you and yours for us and that has worked perfectly in the past years.

About Our Family

 We are a family of 4 who love travelling and getting to know other people and cultures. We have got a nice cat called Rosita but she is very independent and if you don't want to feed her, we'll take her to a friend's place. 

Lifestyle

We made a successful Exchange of young people with an American family.It was a fabulous experience for both teenagers and parents.
