Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Perhaps amongst the finest located villas in all of Europe, the Casa das Estevas is the perfect getaway for a group of friends or families, seeking exclusive occupancy of a luxury villa in a BEACHFRONT location. This magnificent property is owned by our family and was built and furnished to the very highest specifications with no expense spared.
Situated in a peaceful residential area in the quiet and pretty fishing village of Salema, the villa looks directly over the ocean and offers stunning 'picture-postcard' coastal views. This is a magnificent holiday home like no other. With the sea just metres in front, you can literally see and hear the waves lapping onto the quiet cove, whilst Salema's village centre with it’s main sandy beach, cafes, restaurants and bars is a short 5-minute stroll.
Fully air-conditioned, the villa accommodates 10 guests in five large en-suite bedrooms. Our separate studio apartment on the poolside level is also available if required. This gives added flexibility and allows you to increase your group size to 12 or 14 guests, if you wish.
Watch small fishing boats in Salema bay as you relax in the large heated swimming pool, whilst the children enjoy splashing around in a separate shallow children’s pool.
And when the Algarve sun sets, why not have fun playing the wide range of games in our HUGE GAMES ROOM, complete with full size pool table, table tennis, table football, darts and much more….?

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.
