With his own brand of rum - Rhum St Barth, created with wife Severine - to promote, Silvestre has had plenty to occupy him since his two-year stint at Werder Bremen came to an end last summer.
However, he is preparing to join a growing band of famous players exploring new horizons.
Whilst Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and, possibly, Frank Lampard have headed to China, Silvestre is considering India, and the new cash-rich Dodsal FC, who are being bankrolled by a Dubai-based conglomerate.
Dodsal currently participate in the Mumbai Football League and aspire to play in the I-League in the coming seasons.
"I might go to India. It is a possibility," said Silvestre.
"It would be a completely different experience.
"Football does not mean a lot in India yet. It is more cricket.
"Their season starts in January and we have pre-season first, so we will see how this develops over the next few weeks."
However, with three children - Evie, Cleo and Mya - Silvestre has no inclination to break up his family.
So, as they did when the former France international left United for Arsenal, and again when he departed for Germany, the entire Silvestre clan is ready to move.
"They are up for it," he said.
"Some players have to make sacrifices and leave their families behind because they can't be accommodated where they are going.
"For me it was always important to keep everybody happy."
Silvestre made 275 Premier League appearances with Manchester United and Arsenal and won five domestic titles during his 11-year stay in England.
