Make holiday rental accommodation or a beachfront villa in Salema, Portugal your home away from home

Hidden in a narrow valley in the Vila do Bispo region of western Algarve, Salema is still primarily a working fishing village where brightly coloured fishing boats gleam against the background of fine white sand and azure blue waters. Salema beachfront villas are unlike any other in the Algarve, as Salema really is the last undiscovered beach resort in Portugal. Old fishermen really do sit in the beach mending their nets next to bikini clad tourists soaking up the sun!

Things to do on holiday in Salema, Portugal

Salema is a delightful place to relax. Wandering leisurely through the whitewashed house lined cobbled streets of Salema cannot fail to charm, and there are a handful of excellent little shops, bars and restaurants throughout the village meaning that every whim is catered for. There is also a bustling weekly market from which you can buy fish caught just hours before, extremely fresh vegetables and local crafts. Each morning, fish can be bought from the main square, usually from the back of a small van, so you will never run out of food during your stay in self catering Salema accommodation.

However, most people take Salema accommodation for use of one of the most charming beaches in Portugal, Salema beach. Shaded by steep cliffs, the beach is wide and sandy, and there is always a good spot to relax, sunbathe and swim as the crowds tend to gravitate to the more famous resorts east of Salema. Salema beach is picturesque and unhurried, and there is very little that can beat waking up in a Salema beachfront villa and having breakfast overlooking the ocean. Salema beach, Portugal does provide lifeguards and warning flags for bathers. There is a wonderfully secluded beach just 15 minutes from Salema accommodation too, the Praia do Castelejo, although there really is no reason to leave the vicinity of your Salema beachfront villa. Body Boards, fishing rods, canoes and windsurfing equipment can all be hire directly from the beach too.

Scuba diving is particularly popular from a beachfront villa in Salema, as there is the wreck of a French Man of War lying just 300m offshore, and there are regular dives over the wreck available.

Places to visit on holiday in Salema, Portugal

The nearest large town to Salema accommodation is the tourist favourite, Lagos. Although there is always a huge amount going on in Lagos, ranging from bustling shopping trips to endless water sports, Lagos never seems to get overrun by tourists. Every activity, facility and service can be found in Lagos, and if you are looking for a good night out during your stay in a Salema beachfront property, the short distance to Lagos is well worth travelling.

Weather in Salema, Portugal

During the summer months, the calm sea and glorious beach are the focus of attention as aver age temperatures soar to around 32?C. During the winter months, when temperatures rarely get below 10?C, a beachfront villa in Salema becomes a peaceful, scenic retreat, far from the hassles of everyday life.

All you need to feel at home. Nice and easy check in. Lovely balcony for chilling and great views. Didn't spend loads of time at the apartment but it was nice to come back to. Would use it again
