Gato Preto de Silves

Prr, prrr... A black-and-white cat was curling up to me while I finished the last sip of my tea. I was on the patio in front of my holiday home at Gato Preto de Silves, gently patting that cat’s back. Just as I wanted to get up, the cheerful owner came my way.

"I see you've met one of the cats." She looked at me, smiling. "Yes, and I think it found its favourite spot!", I grinned. "I came to invite you for dinner tonight. I cook twice a week, so you’re welcome to join again on Thursday if you like my cooking." The thought of home-made Portuguese food made my stomach rumble. I agreed without hesitation. "Great, see you tonight, Eliza."

With that delicious prospect in mind, I decided to relax in the hammock next to the private patio. I enjoyed the green scenery before slowly dozing off. The cat wasn’t the only one who had found its favourite spot!

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options.
