Explore the Algarve from a delightful accommodation in a natural setting, away from mass tourism, but not in the middle of nowhere?

Due to its central location, with all amenities close by (1 km. From the town of Silves), Quinta das Pitairas is the ideal base for cultural, walking or beach holidays for couples, singles or families with small children ( up to 2 years).

Silves is also located on the walking route Via Algarviana , from (east to west Algarve), making it a suitable stop for hikers.

After a day on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve, you can cool off in the pool or take a refreshing shower in the "cold" outdoor shower . Relax in the shade on a lounger under the Yuka with a good book.

The Quinta is named after the many cactuses around the domain (Agaves are called Piteiras in Portuguese) The total domain is 1.3 large and contains various trees, olives- , almonds, carob and fig tree n

The oldest part of the house dates from 1900, and the small-scale guesthouse 'Turismo Rural' was built in 2018/2019. The guesthouse has been designed with the idea to match the house with typical Portuguese elements but with modern comfort.

The 5 comfortable guest rooms are spacious and bright. And there is a large terrace in front of the rooms , so you can go out from your bed and you really have a beautiful view of the Monchique mountains and you are surrounded by the many olive and carob trees.

Even in the evening you can sit here great because you are in the front row for a beautiful sunset, tasty Portuguese wine there and your evening can not go wrong.


Breakfast is served in the form of a buffet in the morning from 07:30 to 10:00.

In the "almost" always sunny Algarve you can't start your day better than with a delicious breakfast in the fresh air with the morning sun.

Quinta das Piteiras has a lovely spacious terrace near the breakfast room, where you can enjoy fresh bread, fresh orange juice (Silves is not for "Capital da Laranjas") homemade jam, dairy, fresh cheese and cold cuts, local products and much more!
