very charming little house with incredible views! be aware that the shower is very small and may be difficult for larger persons. also be aware that there is a coffee maker and filters provided but no coffee, and salt and pepper and vinegar but no oil for cooking. also there is an extra fee for beach towels. as we visited in the off season (late february) many of the restaurants & stores were closed, & there was no daily market in the square as indicated in the description, just a small stand selling bread in the morning. regardless of which--this house is a gem!

Incredible views, the best in the entire Algarve!

  • 5 of 5

Hello Heidi & Peter,

We cannot thank you enough for your kind hospitality and for sharing your piece of heaven with us. We have fallen in love with Portugal and are excited to return in the future to beautiful Salema to stay in your unforgettable wooden cottage.

The accommodations were perfect for the two of us and there is no question, we had the best view in the Algarve. We felt as though we were living a dream. There is something to be said about waking up each morning to the sound of the ocean waves. The outdoor kitchen was very functional along with the outdoor charcoal grill which we used almost every day. The furnishings were comfortable both inside and outside and the free WiFi allowed us to stay connected.

The quaint fishing village of Salema is in a perfect location between Sagres and Lagos and we easily covered the entire south coast within our one week stay. The convenience of having the Intermarche and Lidl supermarkets within a few km made it very easy for us to buy fresh produce as often as we liked.

We will highly recommend your rental to friends and family.

Once again, thank you for being such wonderful hosts and we hope to see you again soon.

Nadia & Gaetano

Bestes Ferienhäuschen in der Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Ich miete dieses Ferienhäuschen bereits zum vierten Mal um in den Wintermonaten dem kalten Wetter zu entfliehen.

Die Unterkunft bietet Alles was man in den Ferien so braucht...Ruhe, Aussicht und ein kleines gemütliches sauberes Häuschen.

Im Winter kann es Nachts auch mal kälter werden. Seit neustem ist aber das Dach isoliert was die Tageswärme im Haus schön speichert. Die kleine Heizung habe ich gar nie benötigt!

Ich freue mich schon auf die nächsten Ferien!

Vielen Dank

Schön und ruhig

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zum dritten Mal schon in Salema und zum dritten Mal im Holzhaus. Wir fanden es jedes Mal unglaublich schön und ruhig dort. Mit einem Auto kann man allerdings auch mehr touristische Orte in Algarve erreichen und viel unternehmen. In dem Haus selber fanden wir diesmal Änderungen, das Haus und Garten sind schön gepflegt und gut ausgestattet. Leider war das Wetter am Anfang nicht schön und im Haus selber war es relativ kalt, was das kleine Heizkörper nur zum Teil ausgleichen konnte. Aha, und nicht vergessen, das Fisch im Restaurant Lourenco im Dorf zu probieren!

Owner's Response: wir sind wirklich unglücklich über diese Bewertung auch wenn es für uns spricht das die Gäste schon 3 Mal hier waren. Wir waren selber vor Ort während dieser Zeit und es wäre ein leichtes gewesen noch einen weiteren Heizkörper zu stellen. Ich finde es sehr enttäuschend wenn man sich hinterher beschwert obwohl man die Möglichkeit hat vor Ort zu sagen das es kalt im Haus ist. Wir vermieten seit 15 Jahren im Winter und immer war die Heizung ausreichend. Wir legen großen Wert darauf das sich die Gäste wohlfühlen dazu gehört natürlich auch ein warmes Haus.

Wunderschönes Refugium

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren begeistert vom dem süßen Holzhaus und dem traumhaften Blick aufs Meer und den kleinen Ort Salema. Morgens konnten wir die heimkehrenden Fischer beobachten, abends den Sternenhimmel bewundern. Wer Ruhe und Erholung sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Obwohl es in diesem Jahr Anfang März noch relativ kühl und windig war, gingen wir oft nach draußen, um die Aussicht zu genießen und das Rauschen der Wellen zu hören. Unsere Vermieter haben das Häusschen erst neu renoviert. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und bedanken uns für diese wunderschöne Zeit, die wir bei ihnen verbringen durften ! Danke auch für den Tip mit dem Lokal in Torre. Das Essen dort ist sehr gut und günstig.

Wir haben diesen Urlaub eigentlich als Wanderurlaub geplant. Aber wenn man die atemberaubende Strände an der Westküste oder der Felsalgarve sieht, viele Blumen ( u.a. Orchideen) entdeckt und Vögel beobachtet, muss man mit längeren Pausen rechnen...

Salema ist optimal gelegen für einen Natur - bzw. Wanderurlaub an der Algarve, zudem noch recht ursprünglich und touristisch nicht überlaufen. Es gibt einen kleinen Supermarkt, den man vom "Honeymoon" zu Fuß erreichen kann. Auch einige Restaurants sind in der Nähe.

Liebe Grüße an Heidi und Peter und danke für ihre Gastfreundschaft !

Dorit & Jens

The detached house is located on one of the most beautiful coasts of Europe, in the picturesque fishing village of Salema,

  There are no concrete blocks and bed strongholds, here you will find real village character.

Approximately at 8.30 clock in the morning the fish cart comes down to the village square where the big parking with fresh sardines and the farmers sell their vegetables.

Because the house is situated on a southern slope, you have a panoramic view of the open sea, the village, along the rocky coast to the south-westerly point of Europe.

There are many beautiful beaches in the area. On my website I was able to present a small selection, with many photos and Salema,
