Casa da Lila
We had 5 great days at Casa da Lila in November. Everything was perfect: architecture, design, interior, materials and views – we felt completely at home. The kitchen is fully equipped and it’s actually really fun to cook and eat there. Despite the beautiful town of Silves and the many nearby natural attractions, you hardly want to leave the house. Communication with the hosts was very pleasant right from the start and handing over the keys was uncomplicated. Casa da Lila – an absolute highlight for us!

Loved every minute in this beautiful house in this beautiful town Silves. We could have stayed forever. The house is amazingly equipped, very stylish and comfortable – the perfect haven ‘in between the locals’, while exploring all the nearby beaches and villages. Even just spending the day at home is a treat – with great restaurants and groceries nearby in Silves. Ideal for a perfect holiday. We will return!

We had a wonderful time in the city of Silves and especially in the Casa da Lila: It is individually and stylishly furnished, the comfort is very good and the communication with Herman Koppe is extremely pleasant and reliable. The reception in the house itself was very warm in every respect, special thanks also to the very nice Natalia! So all in all it was a great pleasure!

We stayed at Casa da Lila in early October and had a wonderful time. The house is actually as beautiful and perfect as in the photos.
The wonderful floors, light-flooded rooms, bathrooms and terraces on all three levels and everything very tastefully furnished … We and our teenagers felt very comfortable.
Silves is a pretty town and you can reach the great beaches of the Algarve in a short time. The weather in early fall was mild and we were able to walk without problems
still swim in the sea. Many thanks for the nice time and the friendly care by Nathàlia, who always had good advice.

We can only agree with all the other comments. The house is beautifully designed and perfectly equipped for a wonderful holiday. We were there as a couple at the end of September and loved it. Everything went smoothly and we felt very welcome. The house alone is worth the stay. As a small town, Silves has a lot of charm and stands out from the overcrowded tourist strongholds in a very pleasant way. Nevertheless, you can reach very beautiful beaches in 30 minutes by car or visit other cities, such as Loule.
This house as a holiday destination is highly recommended!

We stayed at Casa da Lila in August 2022 as a family with 2 children and felt extremely comfortable. Very neat ambience, excellent equipment in the kitchen – nothing is missing here! You immediately feel at home.
Above all, I would like to emphasize the uncomplicated change in our travel planning due to Corona. Herman was very courteous and simply rebooked our initially planned date from 2021 to 2022. Thank you very much for this unbureaucratic, nice and benevolent manner.
Also Natalia (the “boss on site”) took care of us very nicely and provided us with helpful information.
To make it short: PERFECT holiday in a great house.

We stayed at Casa da Lila as a family in June 2022 and enjoyed every day in this beautiful house. As soon as we saw the exterior facade, we were amazed at how harmoniously the house fits into the streetscape, despite extensive restoration. If you enter the house through the beautiful wooden door, a real miracle of space unfolds. The 3 levels with the respective terrace always offer new perspectives. The floors, the furnishings …. everything was coordinated very harmoniously, the equipment is of high quality, the kitchen is also excellently equipped, so that it is a lot of fun to cook in the house. Each part was selected and worn with great taste.
The communication with Herman and Angela as well as with Natalia worked excellently. We got great tips and always got a quick response.
We can only recommend this beautiful gem and would love to come back!

We loved this sparkling clean gem from the moment we walked in. We were there in June 2022 as a family of 4 with two teenagers, who also felt incredibly comfortable. The house is stunningly beautiful! The tiles were the highlight for me, as was the master bedroom upstairs. Lots of thoughtful details and extremely charming. The mattresses are perfect even for someone with chronic back pain. From Silves we drove to various beaches (the best for us: Praia da Marinha) in the Algarve. It is not advisable to book a huge rental car, as the road is rather narrow. Incidentally, communication with Herman was uncomplicated. Natalia and her husband were great contacts for us on site – warm, interested and never pushy. Many thanks to both of them! Casa da Lila sets high standards that our following accommodations in Portugal unfortunately could not quite reach. We will never forget staying there!

We stayed at Casa da Lila as a couple during the Easter holidays and we really enjoyed the time in Silves and the house. The house offers everything your heart desires and on the roof terrace you can enjoy the wonderful view and the sun undisturbed. Restaurants and shops are within walking distance and in 20-30 minutes you can reach many very beautiful beaches. We can only recommend the house and hope that we will be able to enjoy it again in the future.

Actually, everything has already been described very well in the previous comments and we can only agree: simply a beautiful, tasteful, cleverly thought-out house furnished with great attention to detail. Everything is perfectly organized from the first contact with the nice owners, to the welcome by the charming Nathàlia, to the departure, we really enjoyed every day. Silves is a nice, relatively untouristy town with a market hall that is open daily, which makes the heart of every foodie beat faster and cooking in the well-equipped kitchen is fun. All in all a real stroke of luck! Thank you for the nice stay.

We stayed at Casa da Lila for 4 weeks in February and we really enjoyed every day in this wonderful house. The house offers great comfort, we particularly liked the 3 beautiful terraces and the great bedroom upstairs with the comfortable bed. The decor is very tasteful, the artworks by Florbela, an artist from Silves, are also very nice. The whole house is perfectly thought out, nothing is missing and we were happy to return home every day. Natalia takes care of everything and gave us a lot of tips. Silves is a nice town with many restaurants and cafes and a great market hall. The beaches nearby are beautiful. We hiked a lot on the coast and did some tours with our e bikes. The contact with the landlords Herman and Angela was extremely nice. We’d love to come back.

This house is like a fine jewel: it greets you with a glow and conveys a feeling of security and well-being. At the same time, it is easy and uncomplicated to live in: everything works, you can cook wonderfully and be comfortable everywhere. I have never experienced a holiday home that even exceeds what the photos – and the comments left – imply. The contact with the landlords is extremely friendly and reliable, the on-site support by Natalia is perfect. Silves is a cozy place. The coast in winter is just gorgeous.

We were in the Casa da Lila for 10 days in early November. To call it a holiday home, the usual holiday home inadmissibly enhances and misleads at Casa da Lila. The house is a brown -out masterpiece by the architects of Studio Arte. Wonderful rooms, taps and views have been created in a confined space. Whether early, at noon or in the evening we enjoyed living from one of the decks to live in the day/ night and enjoying our eyes. At the beginning of November we enjoyed the storks that are still the loudest with their beak rabbit that you hear. That is also a surprise. Surrounded by poet old town development, this house is a haven of calm. The kitchen is perfectly furnished and has affirmed us to use the purchase on the fish markets. If we have left the house at all, the Laid-Back town of Silves in its old town is a nice place to drink a good coffee or run through alleys on their dilapidated facades. The sea, bays, fancy beach restaurants and kilometers of beaches can be reached within 30 minutes, but also horrific hotel complexes and huge gottseeiden empty parking spaces in November.
Then we praise Casa da Lila, a place that calls for rescue.

We stayed at Casa da Lila in October 2021 as a family with 2 children. We too can only agree with the praise of the previous speakers. We particularly enjoyed the choice between 3 terraces depending on the time of day. The beautiful small pool also offers an opportunity to cool off. We would especially like to thank the landlords for the always pleasant and helpful communication as well as the on-site manager for the good service and helpful tips. We can particularly recommend the Cafe Ingles directly at the castle with excellent food, nice service and live music at the weekend. We would love to come back anytime and can recommend Casa da Lila without reservation!

We spent a week at Casa da Lila in mid-September 2021 and can only agree with the praises of the other guests. A beautiful house, extremely tastefully decorated with everything you need, even a parasol for the beach! The town of Silves is also highly recommended, as it is pleasantly different from many of the big hotels on the coast. In short: we would come back anytime and recommend Casa da Lila 100 percent.
