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.

PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week at this lovely apartment. Home away from home. Loved everything about the accommodation and our 17 year old was thrilled with the Sky TV and US Open tennis coverage. Stunning views from rooftop terrace and apartment. Had everything we needed and will definitely return. Lots of books with local information and welcome pack much appreciated.

A FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Booking the property was easy and all our queries were answered promptly by Sally.

The property is on the top row of development in Salema which means a slightly longer walk to the beach and restaurants but the views are that much better for it! There is a terrace at the front for breakfast time looking towards the sea and the roof terrace for later on in the day which looks onto pine trees at the rear so sun or shade can be had at any time.

The apartment contained everything that we needed from cushions for the sunloungers, a well equipped kitchen to the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in in Portugal. There were only 2 of us staying but it is plenty big enough for 4 people.

There are some great beaches from Zavial and Furnas nearby to those on the Atlantic coast which are well worth a visit - try the unpaved tracks to the beaches to get away from the crowds. An interesting walk is from the back of the apartment through the pine trees down to a small beach 10 minutes away and for the more adventurous, Figueira beach can be reached this way too but there is a scree slope to contend with so its not for the faint-hearted. The sea is very cold unfortunately.

Lagos is easily reached some 20 minutes away which has more restaurants and a few small museums and galleries. Sagres can be very windy but is worth a visit as is Aljezur 30 minutes to the north. A good day trip is to go into the Alentejo - the scenery is very different but can be very hot in summer and Mertola is a good lunch stop.

There are cycling and waking routes, horse riding and kayaking, but at the height of summer, this is all about the beaches and the good restaurants which Casa Alvorada is well placed for. We could not have wished for any more and we will be back soon hopefully.

FANTASTIC, COULDN'T ASK FOR MORE!

Fantastic, couldn't ask for more!
  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a 12 day stay at Casa Alvorada and it was, as my children say, 'the best holiday ever!'
When we booked the apartment, Sally was very helpful, always quick to reply to any questions we had and we felt we were in safe hands.
She advised us to rent a car and we are so glad we did as it allowed us to explore the Algarve which the surfers in my family were very grateful about as Sagres and Castelejo are fantastic places to 'catch the waves'. Although windier and slightly overcast they were still fine to sunbathe on for those of of who don't surf!
The beach at Salema, in my eyes, was the best! It was so beautiful and relaxing. The water was so clear and even though it was slightly chilly, it was a welcome relief when the temperature reached 38 degrees!. It is about a ten minte walk from the apartment but we would drive down the hill and park midway and use the stairs which led directly to a wonderful 'cove like' part of the beach. Even though there were many people on the beach it never felt crowded.
We drove into Lagos one day (which took around 20 minutes), great for shopping but I couldn't wait to return to Salema. My daughter went horse riding at the local stables, Tiffany's, which is a ten minute drive away and had a great time. They provided all the equipment and she went for an hours trek in the surrounding hills which she thoroughly enjoyed.
We took another trip to Slide and Splash, around a 40 minute journey. Despite fairly long queues who all had a brilliant time. If you go I would recommend taking your own lunch and sun umbrella.
Getting around in the car was so easy, all very well signposted and everything seemed to be off of the motorway.
And now the apartment its self....it had everything you would ever need and more. A home away from home but better...paints, pencils, games, books, DVD's, CD's, coolbags, loads of cutlery and crockery..as I said, everything! It was decorated in a modern but homely style and was very spacious. The double bed was extremely comfortable and the children tell me their beds were also.
The roof terrace was great for chilling out though it did get a bit windy some evenings. I am missing my meals on the balcony, the fantastic view of Salema bay is something I will remember for a long time.
We would love to go back to Casa Alvorada and we would strongly recommend it to anyone.
Again. thank you Sally and Bob for making our holiday one to remember.
