The nearest beach to Parque da Floresta is Salema. A small, traditional Algarve fishing village, the beach here is long, sandy and fringed by typical Algarve yellow cliffs. The gently sloping beach is kept pristinely clean and provides safe swimming for all the family.

As part of the Costa Vincentina Natural Park, Salemaâ??s traditional Algarve beauty has been maintained and guarantees a relaxing Algarve holiday destination away from the madding crowds. That said, Salema still offers a wealth of activities, and superb restaurants to choose from, all within a stoneâ??s throw of most of Vigiaâ??s resorts. In addition, there are several small shops and a small grocery store at which you can get your newspapers and daily essentials

To this day, Salema still operates as it has done for centuries as a fishing village, with the boats bringing back their daily catch of sardines, mackerel and sea bream. As you would expect, the village has a number of delightful seafood restaurants alongside the beach and the small street which runs parallel to the front.

"Absolutely Superb"

we recently stayed in this beautiful villa and was absolutely delighted with our time. Initially, we were concerned about the location of the villa so close to the golf course, maybe getting a golf ball in the pool ! The owner said there would be no issue. When we arrived the owner had written a welcome guide. We followed it and she gave us great restaurants and beach bars to visit. It was our first time to visit the area and we got to know it really well as a result of her efforts. The view from the villa onto the golf course was like a picture. We sat every morning on the terrace having breakfast and in the evening we would have great sun sets. I can truly recommend this villa to anyone. it has everything you need and more to make your holiday special. I really loved Salema the local fishing village and the restuarants. We will definitely be back. A great find. Thank you

"A great find!"

We stayed in the house for 2 weeks In July 2013 and can honestly say that we had a wonderful time. The booking process with the owner was really straightforward and we had excellent communication with her and the property management team before and during our stay. The house is beautifully furnished to a very high standard and is very well maintained (cleaner and pool/garden maintenance weekly). We have stayed in lots of privately owned villas/apartments and this was certainly in our top three favourites! It is in an excellent location to access the supermarket, golf course and complex, local restaurant in Budens and the beautiful coastline, particularly Salema. We feel a car is a must to make the most of the area. The house is terraced and hence the pool area is overlooked by the neighbours, but it still afforded relaxation, peace and quiet, with lovely views over the golf course. The only slightly negative comment we would make is that the sun-loungers weren't the most comfortable and the outside table and chairs could be updated but neither of these things would deter us from booking again. If this is your first visit to this part of Portugal we would advise you to take a jumper/cardigan for the evenings, as there is a very strong wind which could be quite chilly (even in July!). The days were idyllic though. We would not hesitate to book again!

The villa was in an excellent location with beautifull views of the golf course. The accommodation was excellent with three large bedrooms large kitchen dining area and lounge. The villa had everything you want on holdays with very good wifi.The resort of Salema was just a short drive with excellent restaurants and nice beach. The villa was very well located for day trips to the numerous local beaches with fantastic scenery.

Where do I start, I love love love 148, beautifully decorated, very spacious, great pool for the kids, loved sitting by the pool looking on to the golf course. My daughter has vitiligo and has to spend time indoors during hottest part of the day as much as I hate tv on holidays for us it's a godsend and loads to choose from.... Entertainment in clubhouse brilliant, great food, la salema beach and restaurants superb! Lagos a fifteen minute drive with lots of street entertainers, the marina and more fab restaurants.... I could go on and on but the proof is in the pudding, I'm going back to 148 this summer.... I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
