About the property

Villa in Salema, Western Algarve - Beautiful Sea Views

Casa Priscarosa is a very popular family house, still owned by the same family after 45 years, on a private and secluded hill above the old Moorish fishing village of Salema. It is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and the village which has a range of restaurants and shops with a larger supermarket 2 miles away. Water sports, tennis, golf and squash are all available close by.

About Lucinda Hindmarsh

Casa Priscarosa is owned by the Dill family, built in 1964 by our parents and now a holiday home for the extended family. Jack lives in Chile and Priscilla in Boston, USA. We all use the house regularly each year. We are now into the third generation with grandchildren coming every year too.

Lucinda Hindmarsh purchased this villa in 1950

Why Lucinda Hindmarsh chose Salema

Bought by their parents who fell in love with the village and we are still in love with it nearly 50 years later! The house has wonderful panoramic views of the sea and the area has great facilities for multi-generational holidays.

What makes this villa unique

Well laid out house with large rooms each with its own patio, allowing couples or members of a visiting family some privacy!

A hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

I rent Casa Priscarosa each and every summer. I adore it so much that I'm hesitant to write this review as I don't want the news of this hidden to get out to the public. I have been lucky enough to have found this house a few years ago and it's since become a very special place to me (as I'm sure it is to the family who owns it). The house has a very welcoming feel and the amenities are terrific (pool, wifi, excellent showers!). There is nothing more relaxing in the world than sitting on the patio with gorgeous Salema below, gazing out to sea with a glass of vino verde in hand. I could not recommend this property more highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your appreciative review. Casa Priscarosa has been our family holiday home for many many years; we so enjoy it and try and up-grade it regularly so our many return visitors come back again and again.
