About the Owner

Hello, Ola, from Noeleen and Hugh Carslaw from N.Ireland

We have been holidaying in Salema with our two daughters for over 18 years and so 3 years ago decided to buy.Now grown up they also have the benefit of it.

I am a freelance violinist and my husband Hugh has just taken up the post of Managing Director of Apollos Fire, the Cleveland Baroque orchestra which has meant a recent move for us from N.Ireland to the U.S. A. Consequently get to traveil to beautiful places, however Salema is our favourite place in the world, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

It has a beautiful beach and some great restaurants and just a lovely welcoming atmosphere.Most people go back!

If your a golfaholic like my husband, there is a championship golf course, Parque de Floresta 2kms up the road and Boavista 7 mins drive away.Also Palmares, Peninna, and 2 new courses at Amondeira, a bit further afield.

Set of taylormade clubs in the apartment, saves luggage

From the Owner

Unspoilt Algarve. We hate concrete jungles in the sun so Salema was a real find 18 years ago and have been going back ever since. With its beautiful beach which is never packed and has an E.U. Blue flag for 2015 yet again.Lifeguard, disabled access and all amenities. A few steps along the cobbled street and you are on this sandy beach , sun shining on the aquamarine water which usually reflects the blue of the sky, watching the fishermen sorting the nets on their colourful little fishing boats. The food, wine, sun , golf ( for my husband ) Child friendly yet you can still read a book in peace. Faster pace of nightlife if you want it is just 15 mins drive away in Lagos,which is also a great place for shopping and restaurants and has a lovely Marina and a cobbled square. We have underground car parking which is brilliant as there are only 7 apts on side of the fish shaped pool in our complex.Only 20 paces down a little lane opposite our entrance to the beach, and shop 3 doors down. Very convenient if like me you have a back problem, or you just want to go in and out of the sun.

From the Owner

We have 2 white sun beds ,Duas brano camas de sol at the solarium area by our pool. The blue cushions for these are in the apartment. So if you are a pool person or a beach person you have both. I We love to have lunch on the balcony, 4 chairs & table + 2 children's chairs and my husband falls asleep in the hammock after his golf. Sun is on balcony in summer until 9 at night. We go all months of the year.as we have central heating if ever needed, and satellite t.v.Close to all surfing beaches and golf courses and lovely little villages. The underground car park is a great help as Salema is small and it is always hard to find parking.We are near the bus. We use the apartment a lot ourselves and so it is not just kitted out as a rental property.We want you to enjoy your stay as much as we do.Close to all the Western Algarve surfing beaches and the Salema restaurants serve the finest food.
