About Trisha Kalitowski
Trisha's family moved to the Algarve from Africa in the early 60s and she grew up going to Portuguese school in and around Portimao. Terraquina the perfect place for us to come and visit family and friends with our children. In 2005 we had a wonderful year living here full time with the kids whilst renovating the house, but now live in London and try to get back as often as we can. For us it is a 'home from home' and we hope that everyone who stays here feels the same. Toby & Trisha.
Trisha Kalitowski purchased this villa in 2001
Why Trisha Kalitowski chose Silves
We chose to buy the house here as it is such a beautiful unspoilt area which feels unchanged from when Trisha was growing up in Portugal during the 70s. We had always visited Silves and friends recommended trying the great restaurants in the area so we soon narrowed our search to 10 mins drive from Silves.
