We had a fantastic stay at Gato Preto de Silves. The area is very lovely made with much care for details. The small bungalow where stayed was very cosy and had a really private atmosphere. Breakfast was prepared everyday on the sunny terrace with a beautiful view. Gloria and Mateus welcomed us very warmly and made us feel very comfortable....

Arriving in the dark was a bit tricky as the location is well hidden from the main road.Our tip: from Silves to Messines follow the road for about 4 km until it takes a turn left, passes a busstop on the right and just before the next right turn sets in take the road on your left. That would be...

This is a class gem of a location for couples who want some quality time together away from the madding crowds. A car is essential. The place is in an off the beaten track outside of a beautiful quieter historic city. The purpose built accommodation is immaculate and beautifully presented in lovely grounds. The pool is lovely and refreshing in...

We're a bit late to this review! So huge apology to Gloria and Mateus for having taken so long to write this. We spent a week at Gato Preto de Silves last September - and it was an absolute gem of a place. We stayed in the Garden Suite, with lovely views out across the countryside. It was a truly...

Located in the countryside this B&B is excellent! Only four rooms so never crowded, Mateus & Gloria are excellent hosts. The gardens are beautiful and well cared for. The maid, Dulce, could not have been more helpful. We recommend this property without hesitation!

We had the suite, which costs a lot of money (about €175 per night). For this, you'll get a huge room, new bathroom with rain shower, and extras such as two nespresso cups per day, a liter of water, some fruit every day, beach stuff you can borrow, GPS. The bed is great, wifi works well and breakfast is OK....

I was trying to give my honest opinion from my experience in this b&b, but TripAdvisor censured it on the firs try. Maybe punctuating with five points instead of two it works. Just wanted to say a few things about how we spent our holidays there, but please do know that not all the opinions are excellent. It just can...

Great holiday. Gloria and Mateo the hosts have established a wonderful base for tourists who want a authentic experience of the Algarve. During our stay they went out of their way to make us welcome and ensure we had a great holiday. We hope to be back soon.

Gato Preto de Silves is in a picturesque part of the Algarve, only 15 minutes drive from some great beaches. Gloria and Matheus provide a pre-loaded sat-nav which is essential for those who rent a car, which, alongside recommendations from the two of them, gives you plenty of places to explore close-by, including some great traditional Portuguese seafood restaurants.

Gloria and Matteo were excellent hosts. We felt so welcomed. The house, the pool and the garden are so beautiful. It is the perfect place to relax. And what is really great is the Gps/navigation that Gloria and Matteo give to every guest. All the nice beaches, good restaurants, markets etc. are saved on it and you have no trouble...
