Guesthouse Bed & Breakfast in the Algarve - Gato Preto de Silves

The Guesthouse


Our guesthouse in Algarve was an old farmhouse dating back to 1870, surrounded by 4 hectares of land and named after our best friends: our cats (Quinta do Gato Preto literally means “House of the Black Cat”). Four years ago, its current owners began the enjoyable task of patiently and lovingly restoring their house into a home open to everyone. Now it’s a small bed and breakfast in Algarve, where visitors in search of a peaceful corner away from the coast hustle and bustle can share the beautiful scenery.

The personal and always professional welcome you receive, together with the friendly atmosphere, will make you feel at home straightaway. The personalised service ensures that any request is dealt with, down to the smallest detail.

Our boutique B&B is the perfect location for your Algarve holidays. Directly in your room and just for our guests, you will find several Brochures and Guides of the best things to do in the Algarve, from hidden beaches to panoramic restaurant  nestled in the mountain of Monchique. On request, a picnic hampers and light lunches to take away are available every day, coupled with a comfortable refrigerated backpack.

A tasty breakfast buffet awaits you each morning with a range of freshly-baked breads, portuguese pastries, orange fruit juice and fresh fruit, traditional handmade cheeses and the best quality cured meats, along with newly laid eggs from our neighbours hens, cooked to your liking.


“A good night’s sleep is an essential element of our B&B and our beds reflect this, with a pillow top mattress set, luxurious white linen and comfortable double pillows”

Some highlights from our Quinta

The latest technology ensures you always keep in touch: all rooms have a Personal Computer with ADSL, and all the outside of the Quinta is connected through wireless, from the pool to the relaxing areas;

Our Gourmet Restaurant will spoil your palate with a mix of mediterranean flavors, always paying attention to the local fresh products and vegetables in season.

Our B&B can offer a unique taste for a relaxing holiday in Algarve: A wide range of tea and herbal teas are directly available in each room, so that you can enjoy a break whenever you want in your private terrace or by an hammock overlooking the orange valley.

Gato Preto de Silves really does give you a room with a view: the B&B rooms are all south-east facing, overlooking the small river and the orange grove valley.

The B&B is in a prime location: in the middle of the Algarve, only 10-15 minutes away from the beaches and attractions and surrounded by the nature of the countryside, with lots of Olive, Orange and Eucalyptus trees.

No bedroom is the same: the furniture and décor have been chosen individually and with painstaking attention to detail, with exclusive fabrics and hand painted tiles in the bathrooms.

Bedtime should be the best time: beds with top quality feather bedding mattresses, the best Egyptian cotton bed linen, soft duvets, bedcovers and plenty of pillows all guarantee a good night’s sleep.
