Traditional and charming, Casa na Colina (House on the Hill) is perched in front of the ocean and blessed with perhaps the prettiest 360° coastal views in the Algarve.

This is a beautifully situated family home in a delightful Portuguese village.
Newly renovated and well maintained, this spacious detached property is equipped to a high standard and offers a lovely 'home from home' feel. The interior is elegant and contemporary with a huge open plan lounge, kitchen and dining room space - perfect for entertaining with friends or family!

Savour your holiday location whilst dining alfresco on the majestic roof terrace and spend long evenings having fun in the small games room. There are quiet and relaxed reading areas on all floors.
Private, unique and quirky, this ocean villa comfortably accommodates 6 guests in 3 spacious bedrooms and has 4 bathrooms. Downstairs there are 2 extra beds plus a sofa bed and futon, with kitchenette area.

The Algarve region
The Algarve region
Salema is an excellent base from which to explore the Western Algarve, one of the last remaining unspoilt regions of southern Europe.
This area of Portugal boasts unrivalled opportunities for holidays in the spring, summer, autumn and winter, which can be as active or relaxing as you wish. Imagine sun filled days and balmy evenings, activities and entertainment, uncrowded Algarve beaches, contrasting landscapes, history, culture, great food and wine.
The Western Algarve is under one hour's drive by motorway from Faro International Airport, but it could be a world apart. From the gentle and secluded coves around Salema to the remote wild shores of the west coast pounded by the full force of the Atlantic and a surfer's paradise, this is like no other part of Portugal.
To the east are the historic ports of Portimao and Lagos, and to the north the cork forests and mountains of Monchique. To the south is the ocean, with Africa beyond. To the west is the wild western coast and Cape St Vincent, the most southwesterly point in continental Europe.
Once off the beaten track, the Western Algarve is tranquil and un- commercialised, where time genuinely seems to have stood still. The coastline varies from remote beaches and picturesque fishing villages to historic ports steeped in maritime tradition. Inland, the rolling countryside is speckled with quaint hamlets where the highlight of the week is the traditional open-air market, at which local folk gather to buy and sell their fresh produce and wares.
Salema is situated within the Costa Vincentina Natural Park, a protected area of outstanding natural beauty on the Western Algarve of Portugal. At whatever time of the year you visit, the unique atmosphere, stunning surroundings and exceptional array of activities for all ages and interests make Salema the perfect holiday destination.
Salema's pretty village centre has retained its traditional Portuguese charm, still having its own fleet of brightly coloured fishing boats catching sea bass, bream, octopus, sardines and mackerel. The village boasts shops, cafés, bars and a weekly market. Not surprisingly, there are several fabulous seafood restaurants huddled amongst white washed fishermen's cottages. The small village is a delight to gently stroll around at any time of the day or evening.
