I have a husband, three children with four grandchildren. We live in England but we all holiday in the Algarve as often as we possibly can. We have made many friends there. We chose a property in the Western Algarve because the area is natural and beautiful and the sun shines there around 300 days a year! Our village property stands at the front of the resort with a spectacular sea view from every room. It has a roof terrace with the most amazing view ! It's only a five minute walk to Salema, a small fishing village, with it's clean sandy beach, restaurants and bars. We use the property for a romantic getaway, a family get together and golf/spa breaks. There's something for us all.

We love the area because it is easy to find and it is not overcrowded. The landscape is natural. The locals are friendly and helpful. Most of the Portuguese speak English. It is peaceful and calming. The local food and wine is excellent. We sometimes eat out, bbq on the balcony or have a local take away. There is a great night life in Lagos and on the Marina. Parking is free and easy. We find we can escape the stress of every day life here and return home fully recharged.
