Incredible apartment

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express how brilliant this apartment is! Everything has been thought of, including a wonderful welcome package provided which was such a treat after our journey. The apartment is very clean and is situated in the best spot in Salema with breathtaking views over the bay, and on the other side the national park. I'd thoroughly recommend exploring the national park to discover tiny coved beaches which are hidden away, the closest being a 20 minute walk away. Salema itself suited us perfectly as it's small with a handful of restaurants and didn't feel at all overcrowded. Everything you could possibly need is in the apartment: kitchen utensils, barbecuing equipment, towels, sky TV, a great selection of films and i-pod dock. Our stay was centred around the apartment as we just loved it so much! Would highly recommend this apartment for a relaxed and idyllic break.

Lovely Apartment with Sea views

  • 5 of 5

Apartment 19B is a really lovely, light and clean apartment. Very well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The balcony and terrace, which are completely private, are wonderful. We ate outside every day and the views are amazing. We would definitely recommend the apartment for a truly lovely holiday.

Winter break

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment with beautiful views over Salema Beach. Extremely well equipped a bonus being electric blankets as nights are chilly in December. The welcome pack was appreciated as were the logs which Sally ordered for us. Fab wood burner very easy to use. Plenty of local information available as well as lots of books and sky TV. Hope we can stay again in the future.Y

A stunning 2 bed apartment with beautiful views!!

  • 4 of 5

This 2 bed apartment was clean, modern & compact providing everything you needed for a holiday in the sun. Loved the choice of 2 outdoor terraces, which both had lovely views of the beach and surrounding countryside.

Salema has a beautiful long beach with a good choice of restaurant, many on the sea front. All with good choice of food and friendly staff.

A place we love coming back to!!

Lovely apartment, fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Excellent, very clean accommodation, thoughtfully equipped for comfort down to all details (even thermos, picnic bag). It was a joy to get up in the morning to the glorious view and to a light-filled space. The enclosed fireplace kept us cosy and warm when needed. We liked the apartment and the location so much that we stayed much longer than originally planned. Salema and area have a lot to offer: peace and quiet and small, friendly restaurants as well as a couple of bars. Wonderful hikes along the cliffs, beautiful beaches, many things to explore on foot or by car. We recommend it highly.

ein tolles apartment

  • 5 of 5

ein tolles apartment (oben) für eine 4köpfige familie. da es sonst durch die vermieter bewohnt wird, ist es super ausgestattet und sehr gepflegt -im gegensatz zu sonstigen ferienwohnungen. einzig die matratzen im vorderen schlafzimmer könnten mal erneuert werden. die kommunikation und betreuung durch die vermieterin war super, samt detaillierter anfahrtsbeschreibung. da wir abends ankamen, wurden wir sogar mit brot, käse, wein und kaltem bier für den ersten tag versorgt. durch den leeren bauplatz auf der anderen strassenseite hat man einen sehr schönen blick über die bucht von salema. der weg nach unten ist auch mit klienen kindern über die treppen (auch nachts) problemlos samt starndutensilien zu machen. besonders empfehlenswert ist das indische restaurant an der promenade. in unserem urlaub waren kaum wellen da, so dass wir auch mit dem nicht des schwimmen mächtigen kind super baden konnten. es war nachts oft sehr windig, so dass wir abends meist eine jacke brauchten. in der gegend gibt es unendlich viele gut zu erreichende ganz unterschiedliche strände. wer ein auto hat, kann also jeden tag an einem anderen strand sein. herausragend sind figueras (direkt nebenan), tonel, odeceixe und carrapateira (mit flachem süßwasser in der flussmündung). kite-surfen geht bei tagsüber schwächeldem nortada am besten in der lagune von alvor (düsen-effekt). rund um super vor allem für familien, die es etwas ruhiger mögen. bisher die schönste (?) küstenregion in europas süden, die wir gesehen haben. wir kommen wieder.
