About christine neaves

I have a husband, three children with four grandchildren. We live in England but we all holiday in the Algarve as often as we possibly can. We have made many friends there. We chose a property in the Western Algarve because the area is natural and beautiful and the sun shines there around 300 days a year! Our village property stands at the front of the resort with a spectacular sea view from every room. It has a roof terrace with the most amazing view ! It's only a five minute walk to Salema, a small fishing village, with it's clean sandy beach, restaurants and bars. We use the property for a romantic getaway, a family get together and golf/spa breaks. There's something for us all.

Why christine neaves chose Salema

We love the area because it is easy to find and it is not overcrowded. The landscape is natural. The locals are friendly and helpful. Most of the Portuguese speak English. It is peaceful and calming. The local food and wine is excellent. We sometimes eat out, bbq on the balcony or have a local take away. There is a great night life in Lagos and on the Marina. Parking is free and easy. We find we can escape the stress of every day life here and return home fully recharged.

What makes this house unique

Property has front position on the resort with uninterrupted spectacular coastal views.

Free parking.

Every convenience necessary is within 5 minutes walking distance or 10 minutes driving distance.

An absolute gem in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We are huge fans of Salema as a location where you can still get a feel of the genuine Algarve so were delighted to find this property. We had been asked to contact the owners representative with an indication of arrival time and Paulo was there to greet us. He gave us a thorough explanation of what was available in the villa and showed us how the comprehensive range of appliances worked along with the English Channel TV service. The property was equipped with a high speed wi-fi system. Everywhere was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The kitchen had all the equipment you could reasonably expect, although with so many excellent and reasonably priced restaurants in the village it was not used very much ! Both bedrooms were a good size and the beds were very comfortable and both had a large en suite bathroom. Outside we were spoilt for choice with viewing terraces on three levels, one grassed and tiled area outside the bedrooms, their being on level 1, a well furnished terrace with tables, chairs, gas barbecue and a large and effective parasol at level 2, the living room level, and finally there was a viewing deck right on top of the house, all giving wonderful views out to sea and over the village. At the time we were there (early June) it was delightfully quiet and most of the time all we could hear were the birds singing. The communal pool area was large, clean and well equipped and very close to the villa. A large number of parking spaces were available in the street outside the villa. In summary I would have no hesitation in recommending the property and would say it is very much worth driving those few extra miles from Faro ( I think it was about 75 minutes on a very good and traffic free motorway) to get away from some of the more touristy resorts.
