About Linda Cook

We bought our villa after having holidayed on the Algarve and falling in love with the pretty fishing village of Salema and the beaches along the west coast and up the Atlantic side of Portugal. Salema was ideal for us - informal, relaxed with great restaurants and a few bars within walking distance. We also like being close to to number of other popular resorts - such as Luz and Lagos for more lively evenings, shopping and harbour side strolling..

Linda Cook purchased this villa in 2012

Why Linda Cook chose Salema

We fell in love with the view from the villa - a lovely mix of countryside and sea views. The minute we arrive, we relax completely and enjoy the weather, the fantastic food and the fabulous beach.

The property itself is also delightful - being light and airy and offers sun all day long with balconies at the front and the rear. We have taken care to make it homely and to ensure our visitors have a very comfortable stay.

Year property purchased: 2012

What makes this villa unique

Our property is dual aspect with cute, cosy balcony on the south side that gets the sun all day long. We added this to the property in 2014 and have spent many hours enjoying the sea view and sun set. It is always commented on by friends and guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent accommation it worked well for two small families. We had 5 in our group. Granddaughter loved the swimming pool. Beach and restaurants less than 10 minute walk away. Best equipped house we've ever stayed in.

Fantastic Villa with fabulous views - a real find!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house - in a lovely location. We stayed for a week with our grown up family - the house is perfectly laid out so that we all had plenty of room and privacy, but ideal communal areas too. Made full use of the pool and BBQ - can't recommend this accommodation highly enough. Great communication with the owner, Linda, too - answered our questions promptly - would love to go back. Salema is such a pretty town too - lovely beach and restaurants. Happy memories made there.

Lovely property, with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here in Salema, the villa was well equipped and plenty of space for six of us. Beautiful infinity pool, which was great for cooling down in. The main part of Salema was a short walk down a cobbled street, with a lovely beach to enjoy. Lots of nice restaurants close to the beachfront. Would definitely stay again.

This villa is easily the best I have ever stayed in. It's simply amazing from the location to the facilities available. Linda is very accommodating with any requests and her communications regarding your booking are excellent. The villa is furnished to a very high standard and the pool is a great size and depth. Location is excellent as you are a 5 minute walk away for the beach and restaurants but as Salema is a sleepy fishing village it's very quiet. My wife and mother in law were very pleased with the quality of all the bedding and the kitchen as they love John Lewis and the lay out of the villa was ideal for our group. Hilde the cleaner and local contact point is very helpful with any requests and also is available as a baby sitter whom we used on one occasion which was ideal. We all hope to return in the future !!!!!! Thankyou very much .

Lovely Villa, Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was wonderful, light & spacious and very tastefully furnished, resulting in a very pleasant stay - home from home. I loved the views from the balconies, the large pool and the option of TV /DVD's in the evenings. It's in a very pretty, peaceful location on Fisherman's road on the old side of the town and a short stroll to the beach. There' s a selection of good quality restaurants in the village - which has retained so much of its charm.

Car: recommended


Salema beach is 5 mins walk - a long beautiful beach, great for swimming. There are a number of lovely secluded coves accessible by car (5 - 10 mins) or by foot along the clifftop paths. The west coast beaches, famous for surfing are 20 mins drive.


Faro airport 1 hour 10 mins - an easy, straight drive. We would recommend using the toll road as it only costs c 7 euro's and has little traffic.

Lisbon 3 hours. Seville 3 hours.

Although car hire is recommended, it is not essential. Local buses run hourly from Salema to Lagos and there is a shuttle service from Faro Airport to Salema.

There is a train service from Lisbon to Lagos and from Faro to Lagos


Many beautiful deserted beached within a short driving distance St.Vincent, the most southerly tip of Europe (25 mins by car). The historical town of Lagos, with local markets, shops, Marina and restaurants (20 mins drive). Monchique (1 hour drive). West Coast beaches (15 mins drive)

Further Details:

The villa benefits from having a peaceful location within a small fishing village with a beautiful sandy beach and restaurants within walking distance therefore a car is not absolutely necessary. It is only a 5 mins drive to the golf, tennis and leisure complex Parque da Floresta. Salema is part of a National Park and is surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty and countless stunning walks in the neighbouring countryside and along the nearby cliff tops.

Bread, meat and vegetables can be bought in the small supermarkets in the village. Vans selling fresh fish and bread come daily from 8.30.

There are several restaurants serving fresh fish, chicken and meat dishes, stews, tapas and pizza and some lovely friendly bars - try Aventura on our road - very friendly.
