                                                                  Amanda the owner was a great mix of friendly and informative without being intrusive and she made us feel really welcome.

                                                                  We really enjoyed out stay and would definitely return again.

                                                                  I thank you for your review and am pleased that yet another client has had a wonderful time. It is also pleasing that you were recommended to Valgarve by another client -


                                                                  wundervolles Haus zum Wohlfühlen und Entspannen

                                                                  Claudius W.

                                                                  Wir haben die zehn Tage in Amandas Haus sehr genossen. Der Ausblick ist wunderbar, der Pool toll, die Einrichtung hochwertig und neu. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Durch die Hunde ist man immer gut beschützt, ohne dass sie uns gestört haben. Wir waren ganz privat und ungestört. Immer wenn wir Tipps oder Hilfe gebraucht haben, waren Amanda und Keith zur Stelle. Der Weg zum Strand, der wirklich schön ist, ist nicht weit. Das Auto, welches sicher geparkt werden kann, kann ruhig auch mal stehenbleiben.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  For our uk potential clients I have translated the review : as below. It is so pleasing to hear yet another client enjoyed and we look forward to them returning next year

                                                                  Wonderful home to feel good and relax

                                                                  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

                                                                  We really enjoyed the ten days in Amanda's house. The view is wonderful, the pool great, the decor of high quality and new. We felt very comfortable. The dogs are always well protected without disturbing us. We were quite private and undisturbed. Whenever we needed advice or assistance, Amanda and Keith were there. The way to the beach, which is really nice, is not far. The car, which can be safely parked, can also stay quiet.

                                                                  Another fabulous stay

                                                                  Alison B.

                                                                  I have never written two reviews for one place but then again I have never loved somewhere so much that I have wanted to return for the second year running.

                                                                  South View Annexe is not just about the property. It's about the fabulous owners Amanda and Keith, the organisation from Valerie the agent, and Salema itself.

                                                                  The property is enormous and spotlessly clean. A huge open plan kitchen and living space and a pool just steps from the door. 2 large en suite double bedrooms with balconies and great views towards the ocean (and the occasional dolphin!). There is a private driveway secured by electronic gates. The kitchen if fully equipped and the washing machine means that you don't have to pack your entire wardrobe. The pool is well maintained and there are sun beds and dining furniture around the patio area. There is also an outdoor shower for when you get back from the beach.

                                                                  Amanda and Keith, the owners, welcomed us back like old friends and we settled back in to what felt like a home from home. Always on hand if you ever need anything and they take great pride in their home and ensuring that you are having a great holiday. There are some welcome food items there on arrival including bread, fruit and wine (what more could you need!)

                                                                  Salema has a great beach and some good restaurants and bars. All low key and perfect for families. The local area is great to explore and some outstanding beaches are literally minutes away by car. A large supermarket is a 5 minute drive although there are a couple of small grocery stores in the village. Lagos is the nearest town and we enjoyed a great boat trip from the harbour.

                                                                  We are in the process of booking again for next year. Valerie manages the bookings and is efficient, friendly and flexible. Booking a property independently can be daunting but Valerie is wonderful and keeps you informed and communicates regularly.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  We welcome these clients back in 2017

                                                                  Fantastic, peaceful holiday

                                                                  Mark D.

                                                                  We really enjoyed our stay at the annexe in Salema. To have our own pool was great & not to have to worry about reserving sun beds in the morning made it even better! Salema itself is very nice, although the walk back up the hill in the evening to the property is quite tough - its a very steep hill. The property was roomy & clean & the views out of the bedrooms are fantastic. Amanda & Keith, the owners, were very welcoming & were always there if & when we needed them. There are ceiling fans in all rooms, which cooled the property & it wasn't necessary to use the air conditioning even though it was 30 deg.+ on a number of the days. The breeze that you pretty much always get, the further west you travel in the Algarve, helped as well & is one of the reasons why we come back to Portugal every year. Would definitely recommend Salema & most certainly the annexe itself & we will hope to come back in the future.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Lovely villa in fantastic location

                                                                  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!

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.
