About the Owner

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

From the Owner

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.

As well as the beautiful beach of Salema (blue flag status) which is a 5 min. walk from the apartment, there are many secluded beaches in the vicinity (both within walking distance and driving). There is a possibility to go on boat trips from Salema (summer only) and/or walk through the National Park. The West coast (good for surfing) is a short drive away (15-30 mins).

However if you choose not to hire a car, collection/return trip to Faro airport can be arranged at your own cost. There is an hourly bus service to Lagos.

Further Details:

Everything that you could need for a relaxing holiday is within walking distance of the apartment. Salema has a good range of restaurants serving excellent fresh fish and traditional Portuguese dishes, many with seafront dining areas. There are also a couple of quiet bars and 2 cafes, good for a lazy breakfast. There are a selection of shops in the village, including a small supermarket, a travel agent and internet 'cafe'. There is a larger supermarket at Budens, about 3km away, with a cash machine. The National Park is renowned for its incredible walks, unspoilt beaches and is an ornithologists dream, being visited constantly by specialist walking and birdwatching holiday companies.

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.
