About this location

The Algarve region

Western Algarve

This area is still one of Portugal's hidden secrets, from the tranquility of it's sheltered southern beaches and harbours, to the wilder more rugged west coast with it's spectacular surf. It boasts over 3000 hours of sunshine each year. The countryside consists of rolling landscapes, picturesque hamlets and fishing villages, as well as towns steeped in maritime heritage. Unlike the East, this region is delightfully unspoilt and untouched by commercialization. Open air markets are held each week where locals trade their fresh produce and wares.


Lagos is the nearby town with it's culture and history dating back to Roman times. It was from here in 1514 that Prince Henry the Navigator launched his fleet to seize Ceuta in Morocco setting the stage for Portugal's age of discovery. The town is a maze of cobbled streets with pavement restaurants, cafés and bars.

To the west is the port of Sagres with it's dramatic headland – Cape St Vincent which is the most south westerly point of Europe.

"Perfect Villa in perfect location"

After a traumatic year it was decided to chose a holiday that we could all relax in and this choice turned out to be brilliant for us. The villa was just perfect, it was spotlessly clean with the services of the housekeeper Carmo who was a treasure. The view from the terraces was breathtaking, with your own private pool and Jacuzzi what more could you want. A car is essential, but taxis are readily available and not too expensive. We visited many of the local seaside villages and found some wonderful places to eat out. This is a place we will be returning to again in the future, just perfect.

"Look no further…….. Perfect…….."

We spent a fabulous week at this immaculate villa in late July 2014. This was our first family holiday in Portugal and we really didn't know what to expect. On arrival at the resort we were met by Carmo the villa's housekeeper, she's a really super lady who obviously takes pride in the way the villa is presented, she speaks perfect English which made everything so much easier and nothing was too much trouble for her. She lives locally, so was able to answer any questions we had. We emailed ahead of arrival and Carmo had organised a welcome pack of the usual necessities such as bread, cheese, ham and wine (of course!).

I recall the excitement arriving at the entrance to the golf resort and as we drove up the hill towards our villa being most impressed by the large villas which overlooked the resort. I remember hearing one daughter ask, “Do you think our villa will be THAT smart?” On arrival at the villa we were relieved to find ours was just as smart, just as big and on a particularly nice plot. The villa looks down over the valley and is not overlooked, it is very private and the evening sunset over the countryside was memorable.

The villa is absolutely immaculate with every mod con you will need to make your stay comfortable. Everything has been thought of and the owners clearly do want you to have a nice holiday, so they have taken the time to compile details of local attractions, nice restaurants and places to visit within an “info folder” to be found in the villa. We found their information invaluable and in fact, we visited nearly all their recommendation and we certainly trawled all the restaurants they suggested! In the nearby village there is a great little supermarket, our girls named it “The Tardis”! It was very well stocked with fresh fish, fresh bread, vegetables, meat, you name it, they sold it! A couple of the days we didn't venture out until the evening, but enjoyed long family lunchtime barbeques at the villa on the excellent sunny terrace followed by a lazy sleep in the sun… isn't that what holidays are about!

This was one very successful holiday. We have enjoyed many villa holidays abroad, but this was our favourite. We came away feeling we'd had a great family holiday with something for everyone. Our daughters loved the swimming pool, we loved the quietness and we all loved the amazing beaches and restaurants which are only a short drive away. We were particularly surprised that all the beaches we visited were relatively quiet considering it was the first week of the UK Summer holiday season. If you like modern, quiet, immaculate accommodation on a very smart golf course within easy reach of amazing beaches and restaurants, then it's unlikely you'll find better than this one. Enjoy!

"Highly recommended - beautiful villa with great views, fabuous pool and lovely outdoor terrance!"

I had a fantastic stay at this beautiful villa and would definitely recommend it for a relaxing week in the sun with friends and family. This villa has the benefit of being on a lovely golf resort (great for golf enthusiasts) but is fantastically positioned near the edge of the complex so that it feels really private and special. All the rooms and the pool area are gorgeous and boost amazing views across the hills and down to the ocean (see picture uploaded!). There is a large communal living space and lovely outdoor terrace with fabulous views and BBQ which we used for all meals and for generally socialising. From an amenities perspective, the villa has everything that you could need and everything is in top condition. The villa has a fabulous pool (and jacuzzi!) surrounded by beautifully kept gardens with nice squishy thick grass under foot which meant that we did lots of sunbathing and relaxing by the pool during the day time. As well as golf, there are also tennis courts and a bowls green which we enjoyed using. I would recommend a hire car so that you can explore the local area and sample some fabulous local restaurants and beach bars. All in all, a gorgeous villa in a great location - I would love to go back next summer!

"Lovely Villa, beautiful pool & hot tub!"

We had a great week in a beautiful part of unspoilt Portugal and I wouldn't hesitate to go back! Easy access from the airport and everything was as described. Such a nice location and Salema was a lovely village to have close by.

"Great villa in a quiet location"

Lovely villa in a quiet location. At the edge of the resort and so in the heat of mid-summer better to drive to other locations in the Parque de Floresta / Santa Antonio. Very short drive to Salema … More
