Central Algarve

Silves City

Traditional, modern and full of life

The Central Algarve area is the most developed out of the three and it is here that you will find the Algarve’s Golden Triangle which includes the luxurious resorts of Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Vilamoura.

Here you will find glistening beaches, world class golf courses, Michelin starred restaurants and multi-million euro gated villas belonging to celebrities and international footballers. We classify the Central Algarve region from the historic city of Silves, down to the coast and over to the craft capital of Loulé. This is the largest region and probably the most popular.

The hustle and bustle of the coast is in direct contrast to the peace and tranquility in the hills. Central Algarve has something for everyone and we love its eclectic mix of styles, properties and terrain.
