South View Annexe is attached to a large villa with superlative views, standing back on the hillside in the typical Portuguese village of Salema, totally self contained, having its own entrance and lovely views. One can walk into the village/beach in approx. 6/7 minutes down : 9/10 coming back ! !

Doors take you into a large family room with an integrated modern fully fitted kitchen, seating and dining area.

The lounge benefits from air con. which also acts as a heating system. There is a Satellite TV (limited channels) and French doors to the patio and private pool.

Stairs lead up to the two well furnished twin bedrooms (with ceiling fans) both with en-suite shower rooms. One bedroom has a small balcony with a table and chairs and from here there are superb views over rooftops to the Ocean.

Lovely villa in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Private, spacious, comfortable and clean villa with beautiful pool and great barbecue area. It is 10 minutes walk (up a steep hill) from the quaint and peaceful village of Salema which has a lovely beach, great restaurants and a few little shops. Each morning we loved walking there to buy fresh bread from the caravan and fish from the fish van. The views from the villa are stunning and Amanda and Keith, the owners of the villa who live next door, are wonderful and always willing to help. We loved our holiday so much that we have already booked to return to South Annexe next year!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

What can i say, it was like moving my home in to the sun. It was nice and quiet no road noise, nobody walking past make a row, we had everything we needed, dishwasher, washing machine all the appliances we needed so we could spend more time in the big lovely pool and in the sun. The decor was lovely and the rooms were nice and cool at night with or without the fans.

A really lovely weeks stay.

A fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Where to start!!! When booking a villa what do you look for...

Great views, spacious, clean, walking distance to beach, restaurants, a swimming pool, and helpful information. This place exceeds all of this. You cannot fault south view annexe. You can't really call it an annexe it's a 2 bed house really with a massive lounge area a good size kitchen with lots of kitchen equipment to cook which a lot of villas only have basics a seating area inside and outside seating area with a great size bbq with outside lighting with a nice relaxing feel. The 2 bedrooms upstairs are of great size with plenty of wardrobe space. And a bathroom for each room. Then you have which I would say is the highlight the balcony with table and chairs overlooking the sea which you can hear at night very beautiful and amazing views. You would pay a lot of money in a hotel for theses kind of views. Next door are the owners Keith and Amanda and there 3 beautiful friendly dogs you might even meet there son Tom if he's not life guarding down the beach, who's a top guy. You won't meet friendlier most helpful people who gave us a welcome pack on arrival including a bottle of wine which was very kind. Plus if you don't no much about the algarve can tell you all you need to know and showed us one of the best place to eat that was amazing. But also give you space so there not in your face. We've stayed in the algarve a few times but I can honestly say this place is the best I've stayed in. Normally there's something to say that the place can improve on but unless you want to be extremely picky that's the only way you could find fault. We had a fantastic time and would defiantly use this place again. A big thanks to Keith and Amanda and Tom and the dogs for making our holuday such a pleasant one.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location, outstanding house! Owners very obliging and friendly. Food bought in for our arrival was immensely helpful and thoughtful. The comp,I entry bottle of wine went down very well after a stressful journey and long day to get there. We hope to come back as soon as we can.

A superb place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at South View Annexe. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Amanda and Keith ( and their gorgeous dogs!) live next door and are so helpful and accommodating. The villa itself exceeded expectation. Fantastically equipped, comfortable beds, superb bathrooms and views to die for. There is nothing that we would have changed. The pool area is well maintained and our children spent hours swimming whilst we relaxed pool side.

The walk to Salema is very short and the the hill back is great for working off the calories you have consumed in the village!

We really hope to return as soon as we can. Thank you Amanda, Keith, and of course Val for organising things for us.

Great Holidays

  • 5 of 5

The Landlords Amanda and Keth are very friendly and helpful. The place is excellent equiped and very nice! The terrace is perfect, with a great view to the ocean. The place is absolutely quite and safe. It takes five minutes to the Salema Beach by foot. Very nice, clean beach with some restaurants which serve fresh fish. We had a fantastic two week stay with a great recovery falue for our small family! Mark Coburn, Germany
