On a quiet cobbled street in the center of Silves, behind a striking azure door, you will find Casa Mourisca: a townhouse filled with comfortable charm and modern luxury. The surrounding town has an unhurried atmosphere: cozy streets and squares, a castle and a market hall, a 20 minutes drive to the sun-drenched beaches and green hills of the Algarve.
Casa Mourisca was renovated by the passionate owners Miquel and Sara with the help of Studio Arte architects. The townhouse owes its style to the Moorish history of Portugal. A lot of attention has been paid to the details, using traditional elements such as the handmade Portuguese and Arab tiles & vintage furniture. The interior is a feast for the eyes and many modern facilities are offered: hotel-style bedrooms with comfortable beds and crispy fresh linen, hammamstyle bathrooms, Marshall sound system, luxury kitchen, gas barbecue and more.
The heart of Casa Mourisca is the beautiful courtyard with four different patios, equipped with beautiful greenery and lighting. The cobalt green plunge pool invites you to cool off and then read you book in the relax mode on the sunbed. Enjoy diner al fresco together at the covered terrace with a long wooden table and outdoor kitchen. Thanks to the air conditioning and underfloor heating, Casa Mourisca is a comfortable house to stay in all seasons.
