About Jim Ward

Julie and I live in a little village on the edge of an historic East of England market town. We both work, and enjoy walking, ski-ing and living in the countryside, but head out to Portugal for most of our holidays in Salema, which we really love.

Jim Ward purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Jim Ward chose Vila Do Bispo region

We love Salema because it is so unspoilt, and as part of a National Park will always remain so. It's a typical fishing village, very friendly and never gets as crowded as other parts of the Algarve. There are some wonderful walks, amazing beaches and the sea front boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here, especially families. We also liked the fact that the area is easily accessible, with Faro airport just over an hour's drive away.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is just five minutes walk from the fabulous beach. We provide umbrellas, games and even some videos and books, so you can travel light and make the most of the great coastline. For those who enjoy a more active holiday, you can play golf (the Parque da Floresta course is at the top of the road), walk in the national park or along the Via Algarviana long distance footpath, discover stunning, hidden coves, or head over to the West Coast surfing beaches just 15 minutes away. If you're looking for great food, we can also recommend local restaurants in the village or nearby. Just ask for information when booking.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to email you to say we had a fantastic holiday – your apartment was lovely & homely and seemed to have everything we needed. We often went to the swimming pool in the afternoon, which was a real bonus – it never got busy & was a nice change to be on a lounger instead of sand & was always very clean & very safe for the children.

Ali, Chris and the boys

We had a wonderful time in Salema! What a fabulous place!! The children loved the apartment and I must say it is kitted out really well - we even got a chance to watch a few of your movies. We had a really lovely relaxing holiday. Definitely a return destination for us and will recommend both Salema and your apartment to our friends! Many Thanks for everything!!!

Aidan, Eilish and Girls

We had a great time thanks - fantastic weather. I surfed every day - mainly at Armado, beautiful beach, good waves. We both liked Salema, it was nice and quiet but still with plenty to do.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Well situated property in quiet fishing village. Property was clean, cool and had a well equipped kitchen . Lovely view from the balcony of the sea and village below. Pool looked nice but a bit chilly when we went ( March) . Apartment Would not be suitable if you struggle with steps and stairs. Village peaceful with a few good restaurants and a couple of shops. Seemed the nicest village in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you Helen - we love the village and the area and glad you did too. Agree about the steps and the stairs which is why we ensure it's right up front in the property description on the website. As ever though, after the walk up the hill there is the reward of that spectacular view!

Lovely view, well equipped, good base and gorgeous village

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was great for our family of four, it had everything we needed plus buckets,spades etc. The view was really lovely and all the steps just help you work off the amazing Portuguese custard tarts you'll want to eat! The pool is deep and a nice area to spend time too. Salema is a wonderful village with great places to eat and it does not feel too touristy. There are so many other great beaches to explore too along the coast especially to the West.

Salema é fantastica, um lugar super bonito, nao muito turistico, praias increiveis e casa super!

  • 5 of 5

Salema é um lugar fantastico, a praia muito bonita, mas tambem perto das maiores praias, Sagres, Vila do Bispo, etc....

A casa tem uma vista incrivel, de manha e na tarde, com uma luz muito bonita. Nos fomos na altura do final de Julho, 11 dias, curtindo muito, 3 criancas, quem gostaram da casa, da vista, da piscina e das praias.

A piscina é muito boa, tem espaco pras criancas, e tambem pra os aldultos, muito limpa e agravel.

O proprietario Jim é muito pronto nas respostas e fez tudo para o pessoal ficar feliz. Obrigado Jim pelo supporto.

Em geral, uma locacao fantastica e o pessoal vai voltar com certeza.

We spent 11 fantastic days in Salema, (a family of 3 kids and two adults) a wonderful place, not too turistic and close to a lot of beaches and activities to be done in algarve. We also spent some time in Carvoeiro and Lagos, but there is no comparison, in salema a lot of locals (even if every one could speak english), good fresh fish at 8.30 in the morning, bakery with fresh bread and croissant, cakes etc...and the restaurants around the house, always good food with a super price quality...in short a great place to stay...we will for sure come back! Thanks Jim for the support and the warm welcome.

Owner's Response: We love it when other people share our passion for Salema - it's a very special place with lots to discover for all the family. Being so close to the beach, restaurants and fresh fish and bread makes life so easy to enjoy this wonderful part of the Algarve.
