Beautiful, spacious, clean and well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday, the prompt professional replies from the booking agent Victoria were great. The property was perfect and well equipped in every way. The goody bag was very appreciated also, especially when we arrived so late in the evening.

It was wonderful to have such a good amount of space in the apartment, Victoria had thought of everything to ensure our stay with you was perfect and it was! Thank you

Lovely wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Salema for a number of years and this is the 1st time we have stayed out of the actual village and by the golf club. Yes you will defiantly need a car to get around but don't let that put you off! A charming spacious property with a lovely community of people based within the same complex. I have absolutely no negatives about the holiday, location, property and person (Victoria) who runs the renting out of the property's. Victoria couldn’t have done more for us to make our stay simple and totally enjoyable. There is something for everyone, fantastic pool, lovely choice of restaurants, quiet location for relaxing or sporting activities (if wanted at the golf club), plenty to explore and our 3 year old loved it as much as we did. A very well organized and run holiday company, hence a well-deserved 5 stars!

Gorgeous and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful light and airy villa, so spacious and equipped with everything we could need. The shared pool is lovely and was rarely busy, a lovely oasis surrounded by the gardens around the townhouses. The local beach at Salema is a stone's throw away and is perfect, with lots of good restaurants overlooking the sea.

Fabulous time in amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Casa Encosta for our wedding and honeymoon and we had fabulous time. The villa was clean and well maintained and we were right beside the shared pool. The size is great and could easily accommodate 4 people. There is plenty of wardrobe space and two good sized bathrooms. Free wifi is great. We had limited contact with the manager, but when we did contact them, response was great.

There is not a lot to do in the immediate vicinity, therefore I highly suggest hiring a car.

There is a nice Indian restaurant/takeaway in the village and a pizza restaurant at the entrance to the golf resort, but this is quite a walk away. There is a fabulous Portuguese restaurant in Budens village itself – O Tiago (within easy walking distance) - only wish we had found it sooner. There is also a fantastic supermarket within walking distance.

Salema is only 2kms away and has a lovely beach and restaurants. We tried Atlantico, Bistro Central and Boia. All were very good but Boia was our favourite. We ate there 3 times.

Burgau is also close by. It has a small beach and beautiful beachside restaurant that will even bring drinks to your sun lounger.

This location is also fairly close to Lagos and Luz which are great if you want to travel around a bit.

I would definitely recommend this property to others looking for a quiet location in the Algarve. We have already booked to go back next year.

It is brilliant value for money and the facilities are great.

2kms or a 5 minute drive to the secluded golden beach of Salema, which is also a pretty and unspoilt fishing village full of charm where you can find numerous traditional restaurants.

Fabulous West Coast surfing beaches within a 20 minute drive.


Faro is the nearest airport, and approximately a 1 hour drive. The distance is 100kms.

Lisbon Airport is approximately 2 and a half hours drive and around 312kms in distance.

Seville Airport is approximately 2 and a half hours drive and around 310km in distance.


With its maze of cobbled streets bustling with pavement restaurants, and busy cafe bars, Lagos is a vibrant centre full of life, and only 16kms away. Also a town of culture and history dating back to Roman times. It was from here in 1415 that Prince Henry the Navigator launched his fleet and set the stage for Portugal's Age of Discovery. Right out to the west is the port of Sagres and spectacular headland of Cape St Vincent, the most south-westerly point in continental Europe.

Further Details:

Other resort activities include tennis - facilities include four floodlit courts with a choice of surface from either a traditional hard court or a 'Masters' artificial grass, a football pitch with a PFA Football Academy, bowls, horse riding in the nearby Costa Vicentina Nature Reserve, mountain biking, Jeep safaris and various water sports can also be arranged. Alternatively indulge in the latest range of exclusive treatments at Spa Floresta, as well as alternative therapies
