Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just to let you know that your property was perfect for us and we enjoyed our stay very much." - TH, July 2013.

"Just to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent holiday at your apartment in Salema. The apartment was lovely and we will certainly recommend it to our family and friends who also love to spend time in Salema." - JW, June 2014

"How much we enjoyed Salema, and your apartment was ideal for us. Praia Mar is in such an excellent position in the heart of the village, and it made such a difference not having to climb the hill to where we have been in past years... Thank you for the use of your apartment. It is lovely and beautifully finished, and gave us all we needed. Let's see what next year will bring!!" - EF, August 2014.

"We really enjoyed our stay in your apartment last week. We hadn't been to Portugal before and I didn't really do any research for the trip so I think we got lucky with both the village and the apartment! It was such a good location for a relaxing holiday with a toddler (if that is at all possible). We didn't expect it to be so hot as well. We never usually go back to somewhere we have visited before, but we are tempted to return next year sometime!" - CS, October 2014.

In need of updating

  • 4 of 5

Apartment in an ideal location for the beach. Lovely and clean but needs updating. Sofas really uncomfortable and outside furniture basic. Beach a minutes walk away. Salema is beautiful and relaxing, an ideal base if you can put up with the uncomfortable furniture. Hopefully the owners will update it for next year.

A lovely apartment with great location handy for the beach and restaurants. It was very hot for October (30+ degrees) but cool in the mornings and evenings. Not sure whether the apartment would be cool enough at night in summer without air con.

Within 30 seconds walk of the wonderful, wide expanse of sandy Salema beach, which continues to operate as an active local fishing spot where sunbathers can watch the daily catch come in. There are many other lovely bays in close proximity including the excellent west coast surfers' paradise. Salema is blessed with some excellent and picturesque beach front restaurants and bars.


The nearest airport is Faro which is approximately a one hour drive from Salema. Car hire is advisable but there is also an hourly bus service from Salema into Lagos Town. Transfers to and from the airport are also available.


20 min drive to Lagos Town with shops, restaurants, bars, cafe, marina, markets, etc. (or local bus). Lagos is also a very historical town with lots to explore.

15 min drive to boat trips from Marina (fishing trips, snorkelling trip, adventure cruises, sunset cruises).

15 min drive to Cape St Vincent (most westerly point in Europe).

40 min drive to Water Parks, ZooMarine etc.

Further Details:
