About Sally Eveleigh

Ralph an engineer by trade has a building company and is part owner of the famous Beach Bar Burgau &

Smugglers bar.

Sally who in the late 60's worked with "Elle fashion group" was head hunted to work with "Bill Gibb" and open his Fashion Designer shop in London's Bond Street in the mid 70's.

She then moved to the Algarve, married Ralph, helped run the Beach Bar & taught water skiing. In the mid 80's Ralph built & Sally designed & ran "Smugglers Bar".

For 20 years she opened a Boutique in Praia da luz until 2009, but is now concentrating on Salsalito also organizing Wedding & Party Venues at Salsalito.

Life is very relaxed, they live in Salsalito with their lovely dog, Lucky and friends pop in for a sundowner and guests get to meet the local characters.

Sally Eveleigh purchased this guest house in 1980

Why Sally Eveleigh chose Vila Do Bispo region

They fell in love with the land in the early 80's, very private, but in walking distance to Burgau, away from the noise of late night drinkers & their work at the time.

They decided to buy the land, design & built the shell, unfortunately due to the recession, they ran out of money!

Ralph's sister, Jenny, suggested with the rooms they had finished, they open a Guest House.

That is how they suddenly came into sharing their dream home with people from around the world.

With over 3 acres of field, no trees, Ralph started planting.

They strongly feel that Salsalito is a home to be shared and loved by everyone, it is allot of upkeep each year, but that also can be fun.

They have met and made some wonderful friends, held Weddings, Birthdays and Anniversary parties and still do.
