Brand new 4 bedroom villa built in the hillside of Salema, fully equipped with the latest technology - Underfloor cooling/heating system, individual electric shutters for every door/window, modern bathrooms/kitchen, free wifi, gas barbeque. Private heated borderless swimming pool with stunning views of the ocean/Salema. 10 minute walk into Salema or 3 minute drive to the beautiful beach in Salema - Suitable for all holiday groups from families with children, golf trips and groups of friends. 1 hour 10 minutes drive from Faro and few minutes from glorious beaches, restaurants and fishing villages.
My brother and I have holidayed in Salema since we were small children and have grown to love Salema and the surrounding areas. Salema in our opinion is a hidden little gem which takes you away from the overpopulated tourist areas of Portugal and we wanted to have our own home so that we can enjoy it with our own family and friends. We hope that our guests relax and enjoy our home in Salema in the same way that we do.
Kate Ratcliffe purchased this villa in 2014
We have watched Salema grow over the last 35 years from a few fishermen’s cottages to a thriving, popular holiday destination without being spoilt from over building. The beautiful beach in Salema is extremely popular with families as it does not suffer from overcrowding like many others towards Faro, and benefits from life guards on duty all day as well as a first aid centre. There are also plenty of restaurants along the sea front to choose from. Salema is also one of the last remaining fishing villages where the fishermen still fish in the traditional way and the fisherman can still be seen spending their afternoons repairing their nets for their next fishing trip. Included in the rental price guests will receive a complimentary welcome pack (which is most welcome if guests arrive late in the evening and are hungry and thirsty!). We also include all linen and towels including pool towels and beach towels - We know how costly it can be to add additional luggage to your flights so providing towels for our guests should lighten the cost! We also include all cleaning products, such as dishwasher tablets, salt and rinse-aid, fairy liquid, bin liners, kitchen towel, foil and cling film, tea towels, dish cloths, toilet rolls, hand pump soaps and room sprays - again the cost of some of these products can be costly so we have taken the burden off you. It is important to us that you feel at home and don't have to worry about these things. Pool heating is also included in your rental price. We also have a travel cot, two high chairs, a bed guard for young children and a stairgate at no extra cost.
Building our own villa has enabled us to install all the modern technology we feel was required to make this villa feel like home from home, which is harder to achieve in an old property. For example our underfloor cooling/heating and electric shutters each have their own control panel in each room, but also one main switch to operate all shutters at once, We are proud of our achievements and hope that our guests will feel the same, and enjoy the experience as much as we do. The villa also benefits from the fabulous views overlooking Salema and the ocean and is the envy of the rest of Salema as it is the last property in Salema to enjoy the last of the sun in the evening. The villa also benefits from a basement which houses the washing machine, table tennis table and a dart board. We have recently purchased a set of outdoor sofas which are on the upper balcony for guests to enjoy the early morning shade and the fabulous sunset in the evening.
Returning to Casa Mila for a second time was every bit as perfect as our first visit. Casa Mila really does tick all the boxes. Attention to detail and thoughtful presentation throughout
we discovered new walks with breathtaking views, dined at our favourite restaurants, visited new places and lolled about in the beautifully warm pool.
in the evenings we ended our day with a short walk to the village to enjoy drinks and dinner of freshly caught fish or local cuisine.
We enjoyed BBQ's with fresh and local produce from the well stocked supermarket just a short drive away.
Allso relaxing and enjoyable, We look forward to returning again.
We've just come back from a beautiful week in Salema. The villa is absolutely stunning and very private. There is no expense spared on any of the fittings and its immaculate. Its a lovely 10 minute walk to Salema and close to lots of other lovely towns via car. Don't look at any other properties. Just book this one. You won't regret it. We're already looking forward to a return visit.
This is a fantastic villa for a holiday in Salema. It is brand new and extremely well appointed and spotlessly clean. The owner provided excellent instruction brochures for all the equipment in the villa and great information on Salema and the surrounding area. It is a short walk into Salema with it's super beaches and restaurants. We would thoroughly recommend this villa.
Thank you so much for a wonderful, wonderful holiday!
The villa was just perfect for our family of 5 plus grandparents.
Spotlessly clean, super comfortable beds, everything we could possible need for a great stay, and beautiful interiors to boot.
Thoughtful little touches, such as the kiddilock that we could use to lock the pool gate for our toddler, were abundant and much appreciated.
A short walk down to Salema's beach, bars and great restaurants, and a short drive from so many beautiful spots.
Thanks for the information guide on local lesser-known beaches, etc, we had a great time exploring.
Thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a brilliant holiday.
Casa Mila is situated in the best location in Salema to enjoy all that this unspoilt little fishing village has to offer.This luxury villa ticked all our boxes with spacious living and outdoor areas ,high quality appliances and finishes and attention to detail throughout. We found it clean, well managed and fully equipped for comfort and ease. We explored the coastline, with its beautiful wild flowers, descending on secluded sandy coves .We discovered delicious local eating places all within minutes' walking distance.We lounged by the heated pool,soaked up the sun and chilled with our books. It was hard to drag ourselves away after twelve glorious, relaxing days but we feel sure that we will return again soon.
We had such a wonderful holiday at Casa Mila. The villa was so comfortable, carefully thought out, elegant and clean. And not to forget your excellent support. We did not miss anything! The stunning sea view from the villa was overwhelming and we loved that you could easily walk to the beach. Especially our boys were thrilled of the table tennis table. We would definitely rent the villa again.
